Interest Found Irish by No Means Unenlightened Though Pagan in 432 Easy to Trace too Works of the Saint From Authentic- Sources HIS BIRTHPLACE STILL IN DISPUTE As early as the ninth century the birth place of St Patrick was a subject of doubt and discussion and it is still a debatable question Claims have been put forward on behalf of Prance Scotland South Britain and Spain Very learned and ingenious arguments have been advanced by distinguished writers in support of each More has been writ ten about St Patrick than any other silnt and the legendary travels of the apostle of Ireland are always a subject of interest as much in this year of our Lord1905 as they ever were before When our national apostle came to Ireland about the year 432 he found the nation pagan and after sixty years spent in preaching and disciplining the people in religion and morality he left them Christians They remain so to this day St Patrick found the Irish by no means unenlightened They had for that day and time attained a remarkable degree of culture The laws of ancient Ireland now being carefully studied by the learned show a high degree of civilization Their kings and chiefs had come into contact with Roman civilization and had made incursions into Scotland and England and even into Gaul Early Irish annals speak of the incur sions of the Irish chiefs Into Britain and Gaul where it is fair to assume they gained a knowledge of Christianity Some of the captives they brought home with them were most likely Chris tians St Prosper in his chronicle written about 434 says that PAIIAdlas the Roman deacon was sent by Pope Celestine in 431 to the Scots Irish be Heving in Christ While the ancient Irish did not worship God their form of paganism was not so dark as that of some other nations They worshipped the sun moon the storm and the tempest instead of idols The mission of Palladlus among the Irish was not a success It remained for St Patrick to convert the nation He had spent six years as a captive among the people and during these years learned their language beside becoming ac quainted with their habits prejudices and customs He had acquired his intellec tual and religious training under St t Martin of Tours and others and was well equipped for the work before him He had tact He turned his knowledge of the people to tine best of account and did not attempt at once to ruthlessly make war on the pagan customs he found He rooted out what could not be reconciled with the spirit of Christianity and absorbed that which could be en grafted in the new faith Knowing that the oeople had great respect for authority he first went to the prince or chieftain in the district knowing that if he secured him the clan was sure to follow Notwithstanding the lapse of time the records of St Patricks labors are perma nently fixed It is almost universally agreed that he fixed his See at Armagh about the year 415 and previous to that time had spent about seven years iii Con naught He built a church and monas tery at Assaroe at the mouth of the Erne He next passes into the TirConall and TirEoghan He visits Aileach the fortress and castle of Niall He blesses Eo han and his two sons and their peo pIe He preaches and founds churches as he goes along the northern portion of the island the ancient territory named Cianachta He passes across the Bann blesses its waters and renders it abundant in fish then into DalRiada and Dal Aradia the modern counties of Antrim 1 and Down He returus on his journey having traversed these regions in all di rections and having made many converts as he went along Next we find him passing along the north of Lough Neagb again crossing the Bann at Toome bridge He is now in the ancient territory known as HyTultre dn TirEoghan along the western shore of Lough Neagh He spent forty days in this locality and we find that he built seven churches This district formerly known as Hy ITuitre lay between sIeve Calllon and Lough Neagh and is situated in the baronies of LoughUnsholin andDungan non and seems to correspond with the northern position of the diocese of Armagh He applies to a chief of the district Calrthen Mor for ground on which to build a church but he Is refused And is rudely repulsed by this chief but he goes to a brother Calrtlen Beg by whom he was kindly received St Pat trick blesses this chief and his wife and daughter who afterward received the veil from him and who gave heriwme to one of the seven churches founded in the district the name is still prwwrved jn tbelocality Ardtrea the height fSt Treat By the aid of

THE CANALS AND RAILROADS The Kentucky Irish American has on previous occasions called attention to the part Irishmen took in the early develop ment of Kentuck and Indiana Excellent work in this direction is now bein done every year by patriotic American citizens of Irish descent or birth in other States notably inf Illinois John F Finerty and William J Onahan have accumulated much interestiug matter about the early settlement of Illinois which has been circulated through the Chicago Historical Society Irish set tiers were to be found in Illinois in the eighteenth century Irish names are in termingled with French in the lists of the old parishes as Kaskaskia Prairie du Rocher Cabokia and elsewhere before 1800The Irish as is well known formed no inconsiderable part of the Continental military forces and many Irish soldiers were sent to the West during the war of the Revolution Many of these Irishmen settled in Illinois There then followed later Irishmen from Kentucky Ohio and Indiana In the latter State especially there were swarms of Irish settlers as the history of the State will show and the Irish rose to great prominence in the public service in the Legislature and in Congress The Irish element was leaving out of eight the early FrenchCanadians the first and far the most important con tingent of the foreign nationalities in Illi nois These first comers were hardyand thrifty emigrants They were not of the poorerclaMjbecftH9 thelrCciming6ut here in those early days before railroads implied the possession of means and gritI There existed then no such prejudice and hostility to the foreigners as was aroused in later years There was little or no antiIrish spirit among the old settlers That was a later noxious out burst The early Irish comers were scattered all over Illinois and their presence can be traced from Galena to Cairo Later on came the vast influx of Irish immigrants who found employ ment building the Illinois and Michigan canal and the early railroads Old records show a large proportion of Irish names in the State during the last century The old French town of Kaskaskia the second oldest town in Illinois once State capital

Patrick Kennedy and Henry OHaraAn J S C Hogan was the first Postmaster of Chicago His name appears on a petition sent to the Bishop of St Louis in 1833 asking that a resi dent priest be appointed in Chicago The result was the appointment of Father St Cyr who became pastor of St Maryi the first Catholic church in ChicagoA story is that which attributes the heavy settlemeut of the State by Irishmen to the building of the Illinois and Michigan canal Irishmen in large numbers were attracted by the chances for employment Most of the contract ors were Irishmen one of the chief engineers was a Michael Ryan and records show that more than 300 Irish men were employed on the work in 1840 During the bard times the laborers were paid in unnegotiable scrip which they exchanged for land along the line of the canal and thus formed the nucleus for what was afterward a large andprosper ous farming community From some of these early laborers and farmers are descended many of the prominent busi ness and professional men of Illinois During the pioneer days of the West politically speaking the years leading up to 1848 the Irish were a prominent factor in the affairs of the State The celebrated Gen James Shields was as well known and influential in State pol ides as his brilliant leader Stephen A Douglas or even as his famous opponent Abraham Lincoln Others who were powers in early days were Richard Mur phy three times State Senator andwho was Long John Wentworths opponent for Congress Thomas Hoyne the first City Clerk John McGovern father of Rev James McGovera Michael J Law ler of Sbawneetown Captain in the Mexican war Richard Cady of LaSalle and Michael Crotty of Seneca who were large contractors on the Illinois and Michigan canal Among the other prom anent Irishmen of the

Manuscripts Show That Learning Was Held in High Esteem by Irish Annals of Four Masters the Most Important Books Preserved English Government Has Done Little to Aid in His tone Work WHO THE FOUR MASTERS WERE Learning of all kinds was held in great estimation by the ancient Irish espe cially history poetry and romautic tales Most of their lore was written down in books for after the time of St Patrick everything that was considered worthy of being preserved was committed to writing so that many manuscripts accumulated throughout the country A large pro portion of these were destroyed how ever during the dark days of the Anglo Norman invasion There is remaining however a great body of manuscript literature The two most important collections are in Trinity College Dublin and in the Royal Irish Academy in the same city There are also many important Irish manuscripts in the British Museum in London and in the Bodleian Library at Oxford Some too are preserved in the continental libraries brought there by Irish mission cries who frequented the continent in early ages During all time among all nations habituated to customs of refinement there have been historians appointed and salaried by the State whose express duty it was to transmit to posterity written rec ords of remarkable events taking place during their term of office The Irish people guarded for centuries the preserva tion of her historic records even amid peril and disaster The most important of the Irish annals are the Annals of the Four Masters which begin at the earliest times and end at the ear1610ThenamesofthePour Masters were Michael OClery Conary OCleary Cucogry OClery and Fearfeasa OMulconry Had the compilation of their annals been delayed a single gen eration they never could have been com piled at all for Fergall OGara of Cool avin in the County Sligo paid and sup ported the Four Masters while they were writing their annals He took part in the wretched Jacobite wars shortly after and lost his patrimony He as well as the Four Masters deserves the thanks of pos terityThe Four Masters were diligent search ers after the truth and modern research has proved the truth of most of their statements It is admitted that those parts of their annals relating to pagan Irelandare to some extent defective for they Oinitted mentioning popular per sonages who flourished in ancient times simply because they were pagans The Pour Masters were profoundly pious and thought it wrong to glorify or even to mention the deeds of Pagans No praise could be given to the Four Masters greater than the praise that should be given to John ODonovan the translator and it may be said the explainer of their annals His translation of them and his notes to elucidate them form monuments of linguistic historic and typographical knowledge that should make his memory as dear to his country men as the memory of the Four Masters themselvesThe of the Four Masters are from beginning to end in Irish Six of the eight books out of which the Four Masters compiled their annals have been lost in the course of less than three cen turiesIn the preface to the annals of the Four Masters Michael OClerv gives a catalogue of the manuscript books from which he and the others compiled their annals The list comprises eight books ill of which according to John ODon ovan are now lost with the exception of two namely the Annals of Cloumacnois and the Book of Seana McMaghnusa which ODonovan says is the Annals of Ulster and which next to the Annals of the Four Masters is considered the most important of Irish books of the kind In 1810 George III issued a commission authorizing measures to be taken for the preservation and classification of the public records of Ireland for public use The commission was mainly composed of persons who had no time to devote to the work and the records were allowed- to molder andTot These records are under the care of the clerks of the Pour Courts and though frequently bills have been introduced in Parliament to have them taken care of nothing practical has been done These records are so numerous that it would be impossible to enumerate them here The earliest records commence with the reign of King John and with some interruptions are brought down to the present time suffice it to say that they contain among other valuable records the public and Parliament Henry VI as also the grants of land under the acts of settlement and explana tion and under the Commission of Grace IB the reigns of Charles II and James It and the grants from the Cqmmiseion reignsWilliamf f Since the revival of the Gaelic move y r ment in Ireland plans have been set on foot to bring to light some of these an cient annals and the hope is entertained that something will yet be done to trans late and place in proper shape these an cleat manuscripts of which the Irish people mayjustly feel proud a FOR COUNTY JUDGE Attorney Charles A Wilson Asks For

arriv ing in Virginia in 1608 according to PrancisMaguirevisited the colony in that year andwrote an account of his trip In 1609 the population of Virginia and Kentucky was only about 109 persons and In 1622 it had increased to 1240 The immigration to Virginia even at that early date was about equally divided between Irish and u English There were few if any Scotch The earliest settlers of Kentucky which was called in those days Fincastle county were Irishmen St Patricks day is one of the occasions t when we are in duty bound to recall the important part Irishmen took ineKentuckyFrom t partinwealth the first State to be admitted into the Union t It was an Irishman William Preston born in the County Donegal in 1729 who was first sent by the State of Virginia to make a survey of Kentucky He was a distinguished soldier in the Revolutionary war His kinsman William Preston afterward represented the Louisville dis trict in Congress Since William Preston first came to Kentucky to make the sur vey it is difficult to estimate the number of Irishmen who have settled in the State but their descendants are much supposethempeopleleftand 1812 The failure of Robert Emmets effort in 1803 for the freedom of his native land also led to the flight of thou sands across the Atlantic The Presby terians of the North of Ireland who had positionbygrated to America during the early part of

Hugh Shannon and Patrick Jordan who came to the spot where Lexington now 0 stands in 1775 They named the town in honor of the battle of Lexington hav ing heard of the revolution The Ken tucky Irish American in previous articles on St Patricks day has called attention to the prominent part Irishmen took in the settlement of Louisville in 1780 and subsequent years and it is needless to refer to them here The Irish today are represented in al most every line of mercantile pursuits in Louisville and Kentucky but not to the extent or proportion they are entitled to on account of their long

KENTUCKY IRISH AMERICAN 326 Weit Green Street UNION TRATES LABEL COUNCIL LOUTSVIIU5 KY SATURDAY MARCH 1 8 1905 AS TO OURSELVES a The Kentucky Irish American in presenting this double number on St Patricks day points with pride to its record This paper was started on the Fourth of July eight years ago and has steadily advanced in prosperity and influ ence When the paper was begun there were two other Catholic fpapers in the city and both have passed away It is with a feeling of gratitude to our friends who have supported us in all of our trials and tribulations in adversity and prosperity that we point with pride to our record Our circula tion and advertising patronage has Increased from month to month K and from year to year and we say it without boasting that this paper now ranks well up with papers of its class throughout the country We aim to keep our T readers posted from week to week and our contemporaries give us the credit of being one of the up to i date Catholic newspaper publica tions of the country- If it were not for our devotedr friends in the early days of our first publications this issue would not be possible We wish to return thanks to these and also to the new friends we have made during the past few years We shall strive to make this paper better from week to week and to deservea continuance of the friend ship and patronage thus far enjoyed THE DAY WE CELEBRATE St Patricks day 1905 was cel ebrated more universally and with greater enthusiasm than ever before all over the civilized world In Louisville the Ancient Order of Hibernians took the leading part but other local societies and thou sands of individuals helped to make the day a memorable one The President of the United States was the guest of one of the oldest Irish societies in America at a ban quent in New York City given by the Friendly Sons of St Patrick There was also a big A O H parade in New York City in which 60000 men were in line In Bos ton and other cities throughout the country there were notable celebra tions In Ireland the day was ob served as a national holiday by vir tae of a recent act of Parliament The first St Patricks day observ ance in this country by an Irish society was in Boston on March 17 1737 given by the Charitable Irish Society and it has been kept up ever since There are no records of early Irish celebrations of the day in Louisville but as Irishmen have been living here for over 125 years it is fair to presume that there were some very early observances It was the custom twentyfive or thirty years ago in this city to have large street parades made up of Irish societies but the custom has fallen into disuse in recent years probably for the better The observance of theday in recent years by attending religious services in I the morning and social gatherings at night is mudh the better plan I peopleLouisville These people are in alle walks of life and when St Patricks day comes around they do not hes itate to show their colors The wearing of the green was every wherein evidence on St PatricksI iI day this year and the practice promb iices to grow The Irish are a p trlr otic people and their love of coun Btty and the honor they bestow on in their Pal onlnt is appreciated by n D their fellowcitizens of all nation alities DEMOCRATIC PRIMARY A primary election under the protection of the Carroll law has been ordered by the Democratic City and County Executive Com mittee for April 25 This will be one of the most important primaries ever held in Louisville and Jef ferson county The time is short for

The candidates who wish to participate must pay their assessments on or before April i These will be entitled to present lists qfofficers for the primary and these officers will be selected from the lists so fur nished by the Democratic City and County Executive Committee The primary promises to be a very interesting one and some of the races will be hotly contested The Kentucky Irish American today presents the names of a large number of gentlemen who are seeking nominations under the rules laid down by the committee As the canvass progresses there will no doubt be many more announce ments This paper has a large number of Democratic readers and these generally take advantage of our columns to let their friends know they are in the rake There have been some accom plished men holding the office of Police Court Judge during the past seventyfive years from Patrick Joyes to John McCann There was Hop Price and also Judge Thompson in recent years who filled the position with distin guished ability Of all the Judges who have served John McCann the incumbent seems to have given the best satisfaction to the general public Judge McCann served for many years as Magistrate He knows the law and he knows how to administer it with mercy and with discretion in the Police Court It is no wonder he has no opposition for reelection ELEVEN TERMS Has John Lett eric Been a Member of Kentucky

Mrs J J Barrett and Mrs Charles Sauter HouseMrs Mary Cross and Mrs John Graves- A new committee was established with Miss Judge as Chairman which was called the Building Fund Committee- e the object of which is to raise the means for a new club house tIn Winnie Mc Auley started this fund by offering to do nate 100 if energetic efforts were made to raise the amount necessary to secure a more satisfactory home for the club In connection with this move the following- r taken from the address of the House Com mittee is presented trusting that a care ful reading of it will be given by all friends of the Kentucky Irish American- It is a pleasure to be able to report byethe members of the House Committee now find everything neat and orderly throughout the building with most excellent discipline prevailing The house keeper and matron work together bar monlouly while the boarders under their charge are subject to influences which can scarcely fail to make more womanly women or good Christian girls This work of providing a home for unprotected young women is one which should appeal to every mother who val ues the innocence and purity of her own daughter to every father who knows the world and its dangers for a fatherless girl to every brother and sister who enjoy or have enjoyed the blessings of a fathers and mothers care and in fact every one fortunate or otherwise There are so many Catholic women in this city who do not understand the workings and aims of this club that we take this opportunity of calling to theirI attention certain facts and figures hop ing thereby to enlist their sympathy It has been hinted that the Cathol Womans Club does no charity that on the contrary it ij a business concern eSt peering a dollar in full for every dollars worth given out To this we answer that the lunch department is certainly not claimed to be a charity in itself It is essentially a business concern but different from other business concerns iin that it seeks to be only self sustaining- and is not a money making concerni The lunch department is however t e means toward an end It makes t charitable work of the club possible The financial report pf the Treasurer Mrs D B Mattingly shows the return- from the boarders for the entire year to be 260456 although the regular boar rate is 3 50 per week It requires very little figuring to ascertain that with the number of boarders never less than twentysix that the average board has amounted to less than J2 per week None of the boarders at the club know who of their number was not paying full rates nor who for a time was unable to pay any board at all and for this we can say Thank God that the charity in this and other things is not stamped on the recipients browl Thank God that charity can be so bestowed that those around have no means of knowing to whom mis fortune has made this necessary Thank God that this home welcomes the girl1 who through no fault of hers is temporarily unable to help herself and

season of the whole year to him Colds and grip are epidemic and he blames gause and openwork hose for it Women says heIIthink they can indulge in the vanity of spun silk hose and still keep up a good circulation They think they can wear a veil to pro tect their faces from biting winds and wear the thinnest stockings with con tinual cold feet as a result and keep well Its the most absurd fallacy but yon cant make them believe itat least not until theyre old and gray TURN GOOD SIDE A curious fact relating to a womans personality is that the two sides of her face are not in accord one with the other In other words every woman has two faces and one shows certain characteristics which the other does not and each contradicts the other The left side is always the prettier although it would take a very keen eye to discern any difference But it is worth while to remember this when posing for ones photograph The moral of this is obvious The left side of the face show ing to far better advantage than the right it is evidently ones duty to keep the good side turned toward an observer I Send in your subscriptions now I ti t i111111lII1fl1l111111I11III111lIIIIII11111Il1II 111flt1w WH EDINGER

North Father Arseno TurqnotH Trav chug flOO Miles Over Snow and lIce An Indomitable Will and Great Physical Endurance Required to Mriko Trip YOUNG MISSIONARYS GREAT ZEAL The Rev Father Arsene Turquetil an Oblate has begun a remarkable journey to keep a remarkable trystwlth a remark able Eskimo named Nyrimoyok He left St Peters mission at the northmost point of Reindeer lake in Athabasca on or about January and expects reach Lake Garry between Mackenzie and Reewatfn early in March There a conference will take place upon which depends the Cbristianization of one of the largest tribes of Eskimos in the worlda tribe whose uncounted thousands roam the wilds of the frozen north from Hudsons bay to the Beaufort sea says the Chicago TribuneOver these strange people Chief Nyri mayok reigns asjjpowerful as any other earthly king and his conversion to Christianity means the conversion of all his people Bishop Pascal of the Roman Catholic church under whose direction Father Tnrquetil is working considers the task which hejhas undertaken as important as any which has ever come before the missionary branch of the churchChief Nyrimayoka conversion it is believed is assured Last summer Father Turquetil was in Prince Albert coming from the mission on Reindeer lake to make his annual report to Bishop Pascal there to receive instructions from his superior and to gather his supplies for another twelvemonth in the wilderness At that time hejoutlined his plans to the Bishop after telling the interesting story ofNyrlmayokOne spring Father Turquetil reported jjrfstbefore thejcaribou begin their northward migration the Eskimo chief went to the mission and with some ostentation though with his usual chieftain dignity altered by his apparent sin cerity asked Father Turquetil to visit his camp 1000 miles north as the crow flies Furthermore the father reported Nyrimayok asked him to make his home among his people and offered to build abut for his use and provide sustenance himFather Gaste now Vicar General of the Vicariate of Prince Albert who for more than forty years was in charge of the mission on tbebleak rocky shores of Reindeer lake once made a trip into the territory into which Father Turquetil is going This was in 1868 He went 700 miles north of the mission and was the first white man to traverse that country Since then parties of surveyors are the only whites known to have ventured into those barren wilds Father Gaste made the trip with the whole tribe of Montag nais Indians which followed the rein deer when they began their northward run at springtime killing then by thou sandsNo words in my language however joined could exaggerate the perils and hardships of FatherTurquetilsjourney is the way he spoke of the journey He made the same statement to Father Tur quetil and the young priest said briefly- I shall go to meet the chief father Nine hundred miles is a short distance in the States but 900 miles from Prince Albert to the mission and Reindeer lake is different The first 200 miles are easy a quick four days paddle down the broad swift running Saskatchewan river Across Cumberland lake the passage isnt hard save that it is the first stretch of the long long row against stream for from Reindeer lake down through a series of rivers and little lakes the water rushes rapidly on its way to the Sas katchewan Lake Winnipeg and Hud sons bay Bd once out of Cumberland lake and the real work and perils of the voyage to the mission begin The de scription is given by Father Gaste who made the trip twice in the fortyfive years he spent in the work in the north ernwildsNow the priest with his Indian guides pass through a few miles of smooth running water slowly for pad dling a light canoe up stream is difficult even for expert Indian canoemen Now the nose of the little baric boat is poked against the shore aad all clamber out perhaps into a marsh where the mud squashes up around the ankle or knees Each voyager takes his share of the goods and the Indians in addition pack the canoe and the trip of maybe two maybe sixty miles around rushing rapids is made Then perhaps another spell of hard rowing on lake or rivers then another portage When Athabasca and the Reindeer river are reached it is tramp tramp tramp nearly all the way to the lake about 300 milesfor in that distance the stream rushes with a noisy roar in a close series of cataracts among giant cragged rocks always half burled in the foam into which the water is churned This part of the trip takes between six and eight weeks The trip into the waste lands north bf Reindeer lake canbe made only on ski and sledge It takes in domitable will and great physical endur ance No white man whose life and soul aTe not voluntarily consecrated to the work could make a journey of that kind There will be tramping day after day over the blinding now through calm and blow either meaning a temperature oi 50 or more below zero across a tuccewoa of dreary waMoe bro tuber 1I r- 1I I and there by great masses almost ains of rocks over which the whoser ne r foot must stumble and the overturned and battered j by forests fallen tree trunks and tangled under growth the accumulation of centuries make traveling discouragingly difficult and again by streams whose cataracts rumbling violently defy the cold to freeze them And then there will be night after night in which the priest and his guides must dig deep down into the snow in that way building a little shelter into which they can cuddle in their furs for the rest which the work of the day al ways makes so welcome If the dogs are tame few of them are they will be taken into these little excavations so that the humans may enjoy the warmth which their bodies give off If they are wild the little faithful brutes will sneak off by themselves when night draws nigh and dig holes in the snow and make their ownsleeping places therein Whenever in his travels the father should meet a human being who has be come a Christian he will erect his altar and say mass whether it be in a filled forest out in the open windswept prairie on the shore of an ice clad lake or river And once each day whether there bet a congregation or Father Tur quetil and his guides be alone the cere mony will Ibe performed Father Gaste says that he has said mass out in the open when it was so cold the wine heated by a fire until its use was demanded froze before he could take a sip and the cup became so cold that it clove to his lips tearingthe flesh from them when he removed it There is no variation he says out in the wilderness from the cere mony of the church During the reading from the missal the priest keeps his hands extended sometimes when the cold is so intense that they take on that numb ness which indicates no further ability to receive the sensation of pain HINTS ON STYLE Spring fashions always delightfully attractive were never more so than they will be thin year An extremely attractive skirt is made short enough to clear the ground meas uring many yards around the hem and yet with the fullness so cleverly arranged as to make the hips look small Light cloths and veilings contain a greater variety of colorings and patterns and there are many more mixed designs this year than last the latter so blended together that the effect of one color is given with a charming silvery lustre and sheen The close fitting waists are coming into favor again In cloth veiling silk or material intended for spring or summer wear waists made with the folds of the material draped tight around the figure quite doing away with the low busted effect are to be seen on all sorts of gownsPrincess gowns will be worn again this spring and with them will be worn the short bol ro jacket The tight fitting effects which are coming back into favor are very evident in many of the cloth costumes There are coats with the side pieces attached and also the always becoming lines of the coat made all in one piece from shoulder to hem But there is a decided curve in at the waist line in both styles Silk gowns for spring are most attract ive and tare seen both in light and dark colorings while black taffetas have taken a new lease of life The coats and skirts are made up in as many different van eties of style as are the cloths and veil ings but the taffeta skirt should always have a waist to match The artistic woman can be better gowned this year than ever in her life and by artistic is not meant the pictur esque and eccentric but the harmonious blending of colorings and materials There are light and dark shades of every color so that blonde and brunette alike can be gowned as they should be It is not necessary now to pay out a lot of money to get good colorings for even in the cheaper qualities of materials and trimmings good effects can be obtained In different grays browns and all the varieties of wood colors there is a wide range of choice and price and the same rule applies to every other color OLD BACHELORS SAY A woman can only be logical when she hates a man- Matrimony is about the worst joke a woman canplay on a man True friendship between women is a matter of doubt with most men An old maid sees a lifeJong enemy in every old bachelor she meets A man Is the most important piece of furniture in a womans air castle The bonds of matrimony would be more popular if they paid cash dlvi dendsThe relations of a mans wife always expect more of him than he expects of himself Women love three timesthe first is accidental the second design and the third despair- A girl only partly returns a mans affections when she returns his letters and retains his presents Before reaching the age of thirty a man wonders how soon he will marry After that be wonders how long he can keep from it When a woman calls her husband a fool he wonders if be is a fool because he Is her husband or her husband because he iis a fool USES OF SODA 0Common soda is all right in its place and indispensable in the kitchen and for cooking and washing purposes but It was never intended for a medicine and people who use it as such will some day regret it We refer to the common use of soda to relieve heartburn a habit whicH thousandp of people practice almost 1 daily and one which is fraught with danger Moreover the soda only gives temporary relief and in the end the stomach trouble gets worse and worse F RARE BOOtS Presented to Royal Irish Acad emy by Sir Charles Gavan Duffy Includes Many Rare Wood and Steel Engravings and Newspapers Autographs ofOver loO Famous Irishmen of the Last Sixty Years I ARE ACCESSIBLE TO THE PUBLIC presentedtRoyal Irish Academy his lifelong collection of rare books MSS and curios First in point of importance is a large volume entitled Illustrations of Irish History in which all the Irish events of note from the time of Grattan down to the present day are shown in pictorial form leading men historical scenes and current caricatures being depicted in raresteel and wood engravings The illustrations which exceed two hun dred and fifty include portraits of the leaders of the 98 movement passing then through the OConuell era and the days of the repeal movement and thence to the careers of the Young Ireland Isaac Butts home rule movement and the more modern efforts in the same direction by Parnell Little less interesting is A book of auto graphs in which are contained letters or autographs from over one hundredand fifty famous Irishmen for the last sixty years among the number being ClarenceIMangan including his the autobiography of Thomas Francis Meagher the latter of which is described as being curiously frank in selfcriticism and selfpraise It also contains a letter of the orator of the Young Ireland So ciety extending to forty pages in which he describes his escape from Tasmania while the manuscripts of Thomas Davis include numbers of his songs ballads and poetical articles a leading article on the Catholic University question which is especially interesting reading at the present time when Irish Roman Catho lice are pressing forward their claims in this direction The letters written to the Irishsong maker include some from the Liberator John Blake Dillon John Cornelius OCallaghan and Sir Frederick Burton perhaps the most unique item of this part of the gift is Davis two volume copy of The Nation in which his own articles are marked with his name and contain occasional corrections The OConnell manuscripts include a long letter to Davis and another to Lord Cloncurry the latter setting forth the views of the Liberator and William Smith OBrien on the land question Passing on to the Mitchel contributions we find a letter to Sir Charles Gavan Duffy on Hugh ONeill and another to M J Barry on the secession as well as the preface and title page of the Life and Times of Aodh ONeill The Carle ton MSS contain the popular novelists Nation article on National Literature and Mr Lever as well as ironical contribution On the Rights of Women In this article Curleton said But women to speak in publici exclaim the thirteen millions of masters Why those who distinguish themselves so signally in private life who shine with equal force and brilliancy in the drawing room the kitchen and the nursery should fail upon a larger stage is to me InconceivableThe include the first numbers of Irish newspapers that have long since become historicthe Nation the Tribune the Irish People not William OBriens organ and the Irish Nation New York There are also the documents relating to the Tenant League and the tenant right movement of 1850 the papers dealing with the establishment of an Irish press association in the year after Queen Victoria ascended the throne and perhaps the most valuable of the lot the promoters copy of a play to be performed in Richmond prison during OCoonells incarceration there Of the rare Irish books that make up a lengthy list there are among other The Act of Settlement of 1664 pub lished in 1701 j The Battle of Aughrim a tragedy in verse published in 1785 Baratarians being the early writings of Hood and Grattan published In 1773 a History of Drogheda which belonged to Davis containing his notes and marks his autograph on the title page Thomas Fitzpatricks Plan of an Irish Parlia ment 1843 Thomas Drummonls Report on the Most Convenient Distribution of Railways in Ire1and1838 There are also several reports printed for the use of the Government of the State trials in 1848 and a brief of Robert Holmes in the trial of Sir Charles Gavan Duffy for treasonfelony in the same year GRACE OF WOMBM Grace in women has more effect than beauty We sometimes see a certain fine aelf possession au habitual voluptuous ness of character which reposes on its own sensations and derives pleasure from all around it that is more irresistible than any other attraction There is an air of languid enjoyment In such persons in their eyes in their arms and their hands and their faces which robs us of ourselves and draws us by a secret sympathy toward them Their minds area shrine where pleasure reposes Their smile diffuses a sensation like the breath of spring Petrarchs description of Laura adswers to this character which is in deed the Italian character Titians pictures are full of it They seem sus tamed by sentiment or as if the persons whom be painted sat to music j n ro c

Alderman Fowler Tolls How lie Was Impressed at New Orleans Federation Mooting Ilrough- Out a Magnificent Catholic Assemblage Mardi Gras Celebration Is Not Matched Anywhere Else ICITY HAS WONDERFUL ATTRACTIONS In response to an inquiry Dr Jl W Fowler member of the Executive Com mittee of the National Catholic Federal tion expressed himself as follows upon his return from New Orleans A trip to the metropolis of the South is always interesting but at this partic ular time of the year it ia wonderfully fascinating in that you leave a land ofr winter and are ushered into oneof sunshine and flowers The first session ofi the board was held at the palace of Arch bishop Chappelle whose guests we were The interest taken by the membersofthe board in the great Catholic movement of the federation was strongly exemplified whrn the roll was called and every mem ber responded to his name although some of them had to traverse the continent to get there Thomas Bi Minaban of New York City President of the Fed eratlon and Anthony Matre of St Louis National Secretary were present His Eminence the Archbishop in addressing the board welcomed us so cordially that we immediately felt at home and recog nized that we were in adistinctly Cath olio city and Catholic atmosphere and that the work of the federation wast understood and appreciated The great Archbishop of New Orleans and Apostolic delegate to Porto Rico and the Philippines was among the first to advocate national federation and in honor of the meeting of the board in New Orleans determined to make the occasion a memorable one Tothisend he Issued a pastoral letter to the pastors of the cityjequestlug the clergy and laity to attend a mass meetiug Sunday night at the French Opera House In response to this the opera house was crowded with the most magnificent assemblage of Catholics within the history of New Or leans The vast meeting was addressed by Archbishop Chappelle Archbishop Messmer Bishop McFaul and President MinahanThe of the United States are I leaders in the federation movement and the Executive Board are indebted to Father Lawton the Superior of the Jesuit College in New Orleans for the splendid manner in which they were entertained at thecollege My personal thanks are especially due Father Lawton Father Roth Dr Felix Gaudin and Mr W J j Waguespack for very many kindly acts The chief debate in the board which brought out all the lights and shades of New Orleans as a meeting place came upon the question of changing the place of meeting from New Orleans to Boston It was shown by the distinguished Jesuit who spoke for the local committee that New Orleans demanded the convention and that the Metropolitan See of Arch bishop Chappelle was the largest in area j under the American flag composed off New Mexico Arizona Indian Territory Texas Arkansas Louisiana Alabama Mississippi Florida and Porto Rico and that New Orleans was the heart of a powerful Catholic constituency which was a unit for national federation You t ask me about the carnival It is difficult to answer New Orleans has a charm in the magnificence and enthusiasm with which she celebrates Mardi Gras that is not matched by any other place in the world Everywhere there is the presence of flowers the inspiring strains of music in the air and springtime in the heart Nowhere in the world will you find sucha a distinctive cosmopolitan city On one side of Canal street the business houses are like those of other modern American cities and the dominant element is AngloSaxon On the other side you are in the French quarter and the street names the shops the quaint and anti quainted houses invest it with a charm that has wonderful attractions for those people who love romance and history OUT TO WIN William Schumate

Paul Society which took place in St Francis Hall on last Sunday even ilug was the largest held in recent 1years The attendance which at thei opening was large ws continually augmented as the meeting progressed premiumysteady growth now going on i a the ranks of the Vincentians steps will soon have to be taken to considerably increase the seating capacity of their favorite meeting place President Campbell called the gathering to order and the minutes of the last quarterly meeting were read and ap proved The reception of new members was next proceeded with President Campbell having the pleasure of receiv- ingi into the membership of the St Vin cent de Paul Society throughout the world no less than forty men in addition- to whichthe names of about sixty more were rerd as having already joined the 1local conferences Reports from fourteen conferences were read covering the work done in the last year and whlle allI showed admirable work still the report 1 of St Patricks conference was one that I requires especial notice That conference J now has 280 active members on the roll- and 1 they are active in works as well as in I name The report of this conference was the best ever made by any in the I city and President OBrien is certainly to be congratulated on the excellent showing made- President Campbell reported that the meetings of the Particular Council were well attended and that the work on every t aide seemed to be well handled by the council i He then introduced the Hon Matt ODoherty who spoke I in part as follows I am sure that it is needless for me to say that I am profoundly grateful for the honor conferred upon me in your invita i tion to address you this evening I think it is a rare honor and one that everyman ought to appreciatethe privilege of addressing this most Catholic of all Catholic societies Your worthy Secre tary reminded me last Sunday that I was make an address here today but did not then nor have I heard from any other source since upon what subject I was to speak None was named so I findt myself in rather the difficult position ofc one called upon to speak without having any subject assigned to him It is need less of course to eulogize this grand societythe reports read today are the grandest eulogies that could be pro nounced upon it Besides it is not a mere of eulogy that Vincentlans are for that after all is mere self glory and self preise it has been said j and truly saidtlis half scandal and the only criticism I have to make about saying is that I think the ratio is hardly correct I think self praise is all scandal so as Vincentians we do not boast or plume ourselves upon the good that we have accomplishedthat speaks for itself Besides my friends the pur you have in view the labors you have to make the sacrifices that are re quired of you and the rewards that you ex pect are as well known to you and better than to me so I would only waste your time were I to enter upon a discus of that character Those who look for mere earthly applause vain as it is do not always get it It frequently their grasp and even when ob twinedi amounts to little very little inJi deedcIf I were to undertake to discuss before you today at any length any subject it would be one that was suggested to me this morning by your Secretary and one to which I think we can afford to give a i moments thought so with your kind kind permission I will endeavor to bring your attention in an imperfect way the between mere philanthropy between nerc fraternalism between mere benevolence and these things that have grown almost to be fads and the Christian virtue of charity A Catholic child thoroughly instructed could explain to any of the lecturers in any of these great lodges and fraternal organizations that we hear so much about the great differ ence between mere philanthropyand charity The child conld explain to him we should impress it upon our own minds for no greater mistake can be than to confound the one with the other Philanthropy undertakes to teach man to love man for mans sakethat is the essence of this thing we hear so much about fraternalism and fraternity in these various organizations Charity teaches a man to love his brother for Gods sake There is therefore a differ if ence between them that we find in the motives presentedthe one presents anIperfect motive the other a perfect motive the one the finite the other the infiniteone man merely the other God Hence the difference the one oft earth earthly the other divine in itas originNow there is an error in regard to matters that we find generally pre vailing in society todayin fact it has t tainted many aCatbolic mind even for how else can you understand or I understand why so many good men calling themselves Catholics seek to find out side of the church and beyond her influences in societies essentially nonCath olic a field for the exercise of their benevolence for the exercise of their nat ural kindness for the exercise of their hearts Is it because there is not within the church and under her influence and guidance societies wherein a field is offered wide enough for the exercise of their benevolence and of all the kindlit ness of their nature Ob surely notfJVincentians do not need to be told that lin the Society of St Vincent De Paul alone is offered as wide and limitless as humanity wants a field for actionforc- harity is love in action vfield for enter prise a field for exertion a field for con quest Surely they are not driven outw side the church and beyond her influ t taco to Gail thatt field wh Ichz they w I- Cn J t 1 seem to require for the exercise of their natural kindly impulses What then is the reason Perhaps some of them will say because they are so liberal in their spirit Nowmy friends let me tell you that the most dangerousI member of society today the most treacherous member of society is thei iman known as the liberal Catholic 3 Nine times out of ten he is a traitor to 1his church a traitor to his God and iif tthe opportunity presents itself he iis 1likely to become a traitor to his country- It would be a very hard matter to convince me that amau could be true to his country or true to his friends or true to any obligation who is false to his first e obllgaionsand the Creator who made it But he will tell you in following out the exer else of his benevolence in these works or charities as he will call them there should be no denominational distinction- or difference Why if he had but learned the mind of his old mother the church- If he had but the Instructions that every Vincentian receives in his conference he would know that Catholic charity knows no distinction as to race creed or color Why does he talk about the broadmindedness the want of distinction and the liberality in the exercise of these works of benevolenc The reason of these traced to its source would in nine cases out of ten show you that it is due to his lack of a Catholic education He never learned the difference he never learned to understand the difference between mere philanthropy and charity He never understood the fact that one is merely of the earth earthly good in its way and so far as it goes but the other is a virtue which unaided human nature can never attain One is human the other divine Every virtue my friends has its coun terfeit which passes as genuine among the unthinking and inexperienced and so it is with charity Fraternity and philanthropy may produce the physical effects of charity as well may produce those evidences that appeal to the senses they may build orphanages may endow institutions but the Catholic understands that beyond the endowment beyond all of these physical agencies there is that essential that real charity finds in the effacement of self which philanthropy- can never accomplishthat effacement- of self which is the work of Gods grace that effacement of self which has been so beautifully alluded to by one of our sweetest poets when he said Love took up the harp of life mightSmoteWhich trembling passed into nivsc out of sight Oh my friends is that love known to the philanthropist which intimidation- can not purchase and no wage can secure that love which will give to theI man suffering with some deadly contagion the love and affection that would be shown by his mother and this loveI and affection from men who may be unknown to the sufferer and yet are happy in spending their lives in his service My friends there is a real miracle which Christs love infused into the human heart can accomplish It only illustrates but one of the thousands- of miracles that pass before our eyes What can I ask you from the moreI human point of view causes the young man with all the prospects of life before him with ambition burning in his bosom conscious of his ability to go out into the marts of life and win goal tion honor dignity and all the world offers for a man conscious of his own capacity knows with character and perseverence such success is within hisI What I ask you causes such nI to leave all these things behindand to devote his whole life for his people- at the altar of God Are not his family ties as dear to him as they are to you ad to me Is not the natural affection in his heart as strong as in yours or in mine Yet we pass almost unnoticed daily among the thousands men upon whom the seal of the consecrating oilsI has been placed and who have voluntarily offered themselves as a sacrifice aII daily sacrifice for the peoples needsI Can philanthropy do that WhatI becomes of your philanthropy your fraternity your benevolence in the end Ob friends it is but an effort to substitute naturalism for religiona fedifor a virtue a lodge for the church i and I am glad to have this opportunity today to address so many Catholic young men and to ask them in Gods name to be warned against that kind of deception There is a great deal of it going on my friends It is not all labeled pagan or not all labeled nonCatholic The greatest boast of many of these institutions fis that they are thoroughly nonsectarian My friends understand that every virtue is essentially Catholic and you wish to practice that virtue in its I true spirit you can not go outside of the of the one holy Catholic and apos J tolic church to do it Do not imagine that you can do the impossible Our Lord himself has said that you can not No man can serve two masters God nd mammon J Every now and then we bear of some I distinguished representative of this cult 1 or that of the bead of some great institu I ion with a grand title who talks of getting j away from the dogmas and theories of the priests away from the tyranny of Rome into the broad day of thought and liberality There Is danger in all ofthat 1 stuff my friends so be a manknow 1 that you are a member of the grandest of organizations that this world has ever 1- known and never by any act or word even if your life be the forfeit do any thing that would in any way appear to I compromise your Catholicity 1 Speaking of work to be done for I young men Judge ODoherty had this I say It is a fact brought home to c daily perhaps not so much to I yon but my position and surroundings I give me an opportunity of seeing it more I clearly that many of yon There are I hundreds nay thousands of Catholic children in Louis Ills from the ages of 1 twelve tosixteeOf young boys especially ho in a few years will go into the num I lehoI I aj 11 f d ing upon the great struggle of life and the most indispensable condition and qualification necessary fur entering prop thoroughCatholic of these boys thousands of them in this city Some are the children of parents who are in unfortunate conditions born perhaps in other countries where they imbibed the faithit might be called in herited faithbut due to conditions over which they have no control and for which they can not be held accountable quallficatlons and training which is required in our country due todifferent conditions So we have these boys starting ont to work in factories at twelve fourteen or sixteen years of age who have had practically no Catholic training at all There can be nothing expected of such children when they grow to mans estate The Catholic religion is above all an intellec tual religion It is not merely a religion of sentiment or demonstration but it is a religion of the heart and of the head Unless you have a trained Catholic an educated Catholic you have one who is likely to fall by the wayside I dont mean a very high education I have known men who could not read or write who had nevertheless a solid Catholic education of a certain kind sufficient for all of thelrpnrposes- Now will it be beyond our resources beyond our limits to have In this city a central night school where the boys who have not had the training or have had little training will have an oppor tunity to come and where in addition to the secular training and education that is indispensable they would receive in struction in Christian doctrine that is still more indispensable Can it be esti mated just how much good an institution of that kind could accomplish I see enough Catholic gentlemen here to know that if we decided upon it we could have such an institution within sixty days and to that institution we conld invite these boysand that same zeal and charity which carries you to the lowly homes of the poor in order to look after their wants would also lead you to look after the spiritual wants of these boys The obli gation to feed the hungry and clothe the naked also applies to instructing the ig norant We have thousands of young men literally famishing for that Catholic education and instruction which they ought to have and without which it is almost certain that they will become wrecks on the great highway of life I believe with proper efforts that we could have a school where hundreds of them could be educated where they would receive with their secular education that higher light without which nothing can be accomplished My friends IfI had the time I would endeavor to show you that the greatest error that ever entered into the human mind is supposing that there can be education in the proper sense without religion There can not be The man who does not understand why God made him why he is here whence he came and where he is going is ignorant and unless he is made famil iar with the first cause of all that Is he understands nothing The light that shines upon him is only the more likely to lead him into error His true interests can never be served unless the sunlight of Gods truth shines upon his pathway and in matters of mind the first intima tion that must be conveyed to the human intelligence is the knowledge of God and without understanding that no human problem is comprehensible in its proper aspect At the conclusion of Judge ODohertys address Rev Father Rock was called for and made a few remarks on the work suggested by the Judge He stated the question of lodging houses could also be taken up to a good advantage an underiexisting conditions many an out cast has to take part in the religious services of some other denomination before he can receive the temporal aid He called attention to the fact however that the proper way for the members to work was to take charge of the children six to ten years of age and see that they receive the proper education and later on there would not be any necessity of their going to night schools for that purpose He agreed with the worthy speaker as to the needs of Catholic youqg men in our city today and promised to do anything in his power to further any work in which the Vincentians decided to engage GOING AHEAD Not Disturbed Over OranAe Protests Against His School Bill Despite prophecies of dire calamity andresignations and threatened resigna tions of Cabinet Ministers Sir Wilfrid amendedIIthe clauses dealing with the Roman Catholic separate schools come up in the House the compromise amendments already framed will become part of the bill Extremists on both sides of the separate school question may have further amendments to offer but the Laurier men profess to be confident any such amendments successively will be voted down and the bill put through without essential changes beyond those which already have been agreed to by Ministers modifying the education clauses in the manner now familiar to all Canadian newspaper leaders The present stage of this memorable episode in the history of Canada has not been reached without many kaleidoscopic changes in the political situation some of a more or less startling character At one time the resignation of Laurier himself was foreshadowed by no less an authority than the Montreal Herald a paper generally understood to represent the views of Sydney Fisher the Minister of Agriculture Mr Fielding was stated by other Ministerial organs to have offered Lauder the alternative of relin quishing the proposed Federal interfer ence with provinciall rights in regard to education or accepting his resignation rl- S u s PABST BEER 4 ALWAYS PUREr Brewed from carefully selected barley

Baltimore in 17fi In 17f7 There Was a M lltary Parade Banquet and Bull STATISTICS THAT ARE INTERESTING Irishmen are taking much interest in the collection of historic data about the first observances and celebration of St Patricks day in the United States Those south of the Ohio river are interested In the observances which took place south of Mason and Dixons line more than in the observauces in Boston Philadelphia and New York Jn 1855 Baltimore like Louisville was the scene of many Know nothing outrages though for fifty years previous to that time Irishmen had been prominent in the business and social life of Baltimore In a paper read before the Irish Historical Society of Maryland it was shown that fifty years before the American Revolution Irish names were found on every page of the annals of Baltimore A majority of those early com ers were Protestants from Ulster but in 1791 the Irish Catholics begun to arrive in great numbers and were able to found beSt Patricks church the second Catholic congregation in Baltimore where Archbishop John Carroll always preached on St Patricks day The earliest mention of a St Patricks day observance in Baltimore found in the old papers of that time was in 179o It was held in Fountain Inn the place where Geu Washington and many noted men put up in those days There was to have been a parade in 1795 but it was abandonedon account of the severity of the weather There were balls again on St Patricks day 1797 but no mention of militia turnouts The Assembly Room having been sold the dances were held in the Fountain Inn the management of which had changed from Daniel Grant to James Bryden There is no subsequeet newspaper account of these affairs However of St Patricks day 1798 there is at least a reporters narrative Brief as it is and unquestionably unsatisfactory as it is it is extremely interesting Says the Balti more Telegraph of that time Saturday being St Patricks day a number of respectable citizens composed principally of the sons of Hibernia dined together at different places of entertain ment for the purpose of celebrating the same where good humor and harmony prevailed and many patriotic toasts were drunk At 11 oclock Capt Stewarts Irish Brigade and Keatings Irish Grena diers accompanied by a detachment of Capt Weavers artillery with two pieces of cannon marched tp Pederal Hill ands fired three volleys in honor of the day I Afterward they partook of an elegant entertainment at Capt Stewarts where mirth and universal good humor prevailed about the festive board In 1803 the American Patriot of Bal tlmore mentions a St Patricks observance as follows The 17th inst h09so beeu celebrated according to ancient custom with great festivity and merriment f by the sons of St Patrick in this city Though the Irish harp has been for some time unstrung yet there was no lack of pipers fiddlers and flutes on St Patricks day in the morning A band of patriotic and excellent musicians paraded the principal streets and com plimented several gentlemen with air most grateful to those who are always alive to Eire go Brath In the evening there was a subscription ball given at the Columbian Inn West Baltimore street by some of the most respectable Irish characters in the city when the ladies of Hibernia had an opportunity of display 1 ing their agility and native charms On this day we were happy in not
