Recent jkv Litigation k p Compromise With Southern Pa Jfclfic Was in BealltrJicJ t tory For Him c 1 I t irk t t Knowledge of Tax Law Has jM Forced Young Man to i the Front qq 4k SUBSTANTIAL EMOLUMENTS FOR RIM P T State Revenue Agent Augustus J Bizot has recently become one of the most talked of lawyers in Kentucky as a con sequence of his victory over the South AAA t AAA AJ BIZOT State Revenue Agent for Jefferson County0 airs Pacific Railroad Company Thereat many of our readers who donot un derstand the case or what the victory Means For their benefit the Kentucky Irish American will try to make the mat terplalni Taxation should be uniform Under our present ad valorem system every one should be taxed on all that they own and possess whether it be real or personal property at a fair valuation It is ob vious that real estate can be easily gotten to as an assessor can readily find the owner and make an estimate of its fair valuation but when it comes to the assessment of personal property it is much more difficult as it is quite an easy matter to hie away personal securities mortgages bonds and other property of like character into boxes of safety vaults and then to reap the benefits of the inter est of these securities and at the same time pay no taxes That this practice of evading taxation on personal property has been very prevalent in this county and State must necessarily be true from the a adjustments and settlements thafbave been nladeJIt is a common trait of the middle and even the poorer classes of our citizens as their oneahd first ambition upon being atileJo accumulate aiittlemonty to purchase a home The successful handling of securities and stocks re quires some experience in this line arid parties not being acquainted with tock markets feell much safer in investing in real estate It has been as stated a trait of the humbler classes to purchase real 4 1Ta4the taxes on what it is lairly worth the result is that real estate is byjong odds bearingthe greater burden of taxation and as a consequence it lstbe piddle and poorer claases of people whd must neces sarily bear a greater and unfair burden of the expense of government There are instances gathered from adjustments made right here in Jefferson county where men worth a hundred thousand and more have paid less taxes by reason of having their wealth in personal property which was justly subject to tax- I MISS ELLA OCONNELL I IadiesIJ atioathan sjleaana other citizens who lave tnerely owned small homes It will iwcait fra+ ri lsia that thstecaM be BOthlaf lindiscreet not unjust ini the t r 0 State through its Revenue Agent in insisting upon what is not only justly due the State but which will bring about a means of relieving one citizen from paying anothers taxes So much for the subject generally Augustus J Bizot a hustling young attorney was appointed Revenue Agent for this district by State Auditor S W Hsger two years ago and through his zeal and energy hundreds of thousands of dollars due the State have been collected which would never otherwise have found their way into the treasury Mr Bigot entered bis office as Revenue Agent and since the day of his appointment has worked Indefatigably for its success Many obstacles have beep Iin his way He has at no time attempted to extort money where it was not justly coming but on the contrary while working solely for the States interest has temperedbia exactions ifrom the taxpayer with a lenient spirit and with fairness Being a lawyer he is well equipped to understand the duties of the office as the tax ques tion throughout the country is a subject of extreme legal complication There are few people who have studied and understand the tax law better than Mr Bizot On December 5 in the case which he filed against the Southern Pacific Railroad Company he collected in this one tax claim 54694 The Southern Pacific Is a company which is incorporated in Kentucky and which has absolutely no property so it operates in the West principally in California Mr Bizot insisted that It should pay here in that Kentucky was the place of its corporate existence and it should be obliged to contider this as its home office where taxes should be paid This litiga tion has been pending a year and notwithstanding several strong cases having since been decided in the Supreme Court of the United States all disclaiming the contension of Mr Bizot he finally succeeded in the compromise above men tioned This tax adjustment is the larg est of its kind in the history of Ken tucky and certainly a feather should be placed in Mr Bizots cap as the case has been cause for geueral comment at the Louisville bar both the judges and law yers giving him unstinted compliments and words of praise Incidentally his success has been just as substantial for himself sunder the taw he is entitled to 20 per cent of all he collects and while the Constitution limits officers to 5000 there is no proviso toadjust the fees of the Revenue Agent The Consti tution is not self operative and conse quently there is no limit to be placed with this commission This would be against the very spirit of the office as to limit an agent means to take away every personal impetus after he has collected all that the law would allow him Mr Bizot has been for years an enthu elastic member of Mackin Council Y M I and has always been interested in its success He was very active when negotiations were effected which bought the original site on which now is located the beautiful home of Mackin He seems destined to shine in higher places than that of Reveuue Agent Indeed be would make a splendid representative for Louisville in the National Congress SHELBYVILLE People Are Delighted With the Organ Recently Installed The Catholic people of Shelbyville are delighted with the organ installed in the Church of the Annunciation there a few weeks ago Ten months ago the Rev Father Fitzgerald and the members of his parish set to work to raise funds for an organ The money was fortbcomiug and an excellent organ of the latest type was secured In addition the gallery of the church was extended to such propor tions as the new musical instrument made necessary and other improvements were made in the church Thanks to the aggressive work of the congregation the organ and all the improvements have been paid for Miss Alice Dubourg the talented organist is especially pleased with the new instrument Under her capable management the choir has received ex cellent training and compares favorably with many choirs its the larger cities She has arranged an elaborate musical programme for the Christmas services TOUCHINESS There Is a disease called touchiness a disease which in spite of its innocent name is one of the gravest sources of restlessness in the world Touchiness when it becomes chronic is a morbid condition of the inward disposition It is selflove inflamed to the acute point The cure is to shift the yoke

Louisville Afford nn Ample Field For Well Disposed Benefactors Orphans Aged and Infirm and Erring Women Are AU Well Oared For ANOIld Forgot the Institutions at This Season r p FOLLOWING IN SAVIOURS FOOTSTEPS The care of the orphans and the care of the aged and infirm are two charities that ought to appeal to every Catholic rich or poor In Louisville the Catholics ALBERT F MARTIN New President of Trinity Council have for years maintained admirable in stitutions for both of thesecharltles The orphans poor little ones bereft of parents attract all Whose heart would not go out to a baby On the other hand when the poor become aged and infirm few care forthem It Is for this latter class that the Little Sisters of the Poor are concerned They have built a mag nificent institution at Tenth and Meg azine streets where several hundred aged poor men and women black andwhite and of every creed are cared for as if they were babies Some of them can perform little duties around the home Others are too feeble to help themselves and have to be fed and clad like babies The good Little Sisters of the Poor do all these things for them More than that members of the order beg from door to door for their dear poor They meet with many rebuffs sometimes though not often with Insults For more than thirty years these good women have carried on their charity at Tenth and Mag azine streets Considered in a purely material way they have saved the city of Louisville many thousands of dollars From time to time they have enlarged and added to their buildings until the home at present takes Innearly a whole blockAt Clifton the SisterS of Charity of Nazareth have charge of St Vincents Orphan Asylum where several hundred motherless aud fatherless little ones are cared for The good Ursuline Sisters have nearly as many more at St Josephs Asylum at Crescent Hill and at Bards town the Sisters of Charity conduct St Thomas Asylum where the orphan boys of this diocese are cared far All of these institutions are real charities The Sisters of Charity of Nazareth originated In Kentucky They sprang from small seed but the order bus at tamed great proportions The Little Sis ters of the Poor came to Louisville from France The good work that both have done has borne great fruit There is in Louisville another and perhaps a greater charity the care of err ing women who might have been gopd mothers and wives had they had the proper training The care of this unfor tunate class has been left to the Sisters of the Good Shepherd also originally a French order whose members have been in Louisville half a century These nuns have institutions at Eighth and Madison and at Twentyfourth and Bank streets They are caring for several hundred girls and women who would otherwise meet with destruction physical and spiritual In your Christmas charities would It not be well for every Catholic to remember these institutions If you can not spare something for all spire a little for each one

good old Irish names as progenitors of some of what are now known as Americas first families the scoffers are growing beauti fully less and less every year One of the most prolific and at the same time most accurate of these Irish American journalists who have delved Into Americas early history is Michael J OBrien of New York His pen is rarely idle and his work is always appre dated by his compatriots In a recent article he tells of Sir William Johnson That is not a very Irish name yet it is proven that Sir William was a native of the County Meath He reached America when only twentrythree years old in 1738 and settled in what is now called Montgomery county New York He was the first to found a civilized settle tqent in that region then inhabited by the Mohawks Later he became an adherent of the British against the French In that far back campaign there were many Irish privates and many Irish Captains In fact Capts Farrell Mc Ginnis end Teady McGinn were killedat the battle of Lake George Sir William Johnsons legal adviser was a New York lawyer William Kelly while his physf jcian was Dr Daly and a young man named Lafferty was his private secretary Johnsons maternal ancestors were de scended from the MacShanes of Armagh James Duane the first Mayor of New York was the son as Anthony Duane a native of Galway For almost forty years after the evacuation of New York by the British forces James Duane was actively engaged in the important affairs of the country He was a delegate to the first Continental Congress in 1774 With him in that body were many men Well known to be of Irish birth or parentage Among them might be men tioned Thomas Lynch and the two Rut ledges John and William of South Carolina John Sullivan of New Hampshire Thomas McKean and George Read of Delaware Richard Smith and Stephen Crane of New Jersey the redoubtable Patrick Henry of Virginia Thomas Cushing of Massachusetts Samuel Ward of Rhode Island and Charles Thompson Secretary of the Congress These were the IrishAmericans who helped blaze the way for the Declaration of Independ ence two years later Duane was a dele gate to that holy and was only prevented from signing that document by the fact that be had been called home to form a State government in New York Duane remained in the Colonial Congress until 1764 when be waS elected to the Senate in the New York Legislature Two years later he was elected Mayor of New York and in 1789 He was appointed United States Judge for the District of New York Five years later he retired full of years and honor He died In 1797 at Duanesburgh N Y a town he had founded many years before and his body was interred there beneath a church expenseSVhile ell statesmen neither were they ell hewers of wood and drawers of

Those who did not become statesmen in the literal sense were preceptors of states men and inculcated lessons of patriotism into the minds and hearts of New Eng lands youth John OSulllvan from the County Kerry taught school in Maine and New Hampshire for fifty years before the American eagle dared to flap his wings He read Greek and Latin fluently and lived to be 105 years old His wife was Joan McCarthy of Cork and his uncle was killed at the battle of Aughrim He fell fighting In defense of the nation against the Orange JTbpmss Dongan a native of Limerick taught school in New York fifty years before the American revolution As far back as 1683 he was appointed Govern of the Province of New York In 1687 he promulgated the historical Act of Indulgence which authorized public worship by any sect and abolished l religious qualifications for public office Dongan was a devout Catholic end dur ing his administration a Catholic college was established in New York He died in London in 1715 Michael Wall a native of the County Meath established the first school in the Mohawk Valley and the famous New York financial center Wall street takes its name from one of his descendants Michael Walsh another man of Irish birth was the school teacher at Marble bead Mass in 1792 and Joseph Story who afterwards became United States Supreme Judge was one of Walshs pupilsPeter Pelbam who taught school in Boston in 1737 was a charter member of the Charitable Irish Society an organ ization founded on St Patricks day of that year and which still lives and flour iishes Several of the signers of the Declaration of Independence were taught in Pennsylvania by the Rev Francis Al lison a native of Donegal Why those Irish schoolmasters even gotoverinto Kentucky Abbot in his fife of Daniel Boone tells us There were no schools In those remote districts of log cabins in Kentucky But it so happened that an Irishman of some educe tion strolled into that neighborhood and Sunire Boone engaged him to teach his children and those of the adjacent Set tiers These hardy emigrants met with their axes in a central point of the wilderness and in a few hours constructed a rude hut of logs for a school bouse It was there that Daniel Boone received the first rudiments of education from his Irish tutor That was in 1734 Unfortunately the name of the teacher has been lost- Tbede are only a few of hundreds of instances where men of Irish blood played a prominent part in early Amer ican history INTEREST GROWING In Mackin Councils Proposed Memorial Window For New Church Mackin Council members are becom- Ing more and more interested in the memorial window they intend to place in the proposed new church of St Cecilia For some time past a neat little sum has been drawing interest in bank and from time to time the amount is added to For instance on the night of the election of officers a little cash box was placed on the table where the members cast their ballots As they voted the members dropped coin in the box dud as a result 26 was netted A move is now on foot to increase the Interest in the proposed memorial and Mackins members hope to make it one of the distinctive features of the new church It will not only add beauty to the house of God but it will remain a perpetual tnetuento of the dead members of tne council GUARD THE CHILD Keep an eye on your childrens con duct at all times as far 6s possible Let them neverbe very far away from you if you can help it and make it your busi ness always to know where they are Insist that they shall come straight home after school and then If they want to go anywher let them ask permission And at night when the little ones should all be in the house many of you do not know where they are They are running the road somewhere aqd learning no good you may depend on that That is criminal carelessness on the part of parents who permit it The youngsters should never be allowed out after dark and even with the grownup ones you should insist that they be 11at an early hour There must be no going to bed and leaving the doors open for them to come in How any father or mother can go tosleep with an easy conscience while theydontthing hard to understand PATHETIC INCIDENT There is a pitiful story told in the Bookman of Philip Bourke Marston the blind English writer One day a par ticularly good Idea came to him and he

Church of the Ascension at Buffalo and editor of the Catholic Union and Times one of the ablest Catholic journals in the United States died suddenly in his rectory on Tuesday morning The news of his death was a great shock not only to hs parishioners but likewise to the Catholic editorial community ol the United States He was almost at well known in Ireland as be was in this countryThe was born in the County Limerick Ireland seventyfour years ago but removed to America with bis parents when a mere boy Early in his life he felt called to the priesthood and began his studies at the college con ducted by the Vincentlan fathers at The Barrels Mo His theological course was completed at Niagara University and while in the institution Father Cronin exhibited his first ability as a newspaper man While prosecuting his studies in that institution he was editor of the Index the university paper Since 1874 Father Cronin has been editor of the Catholic Union and Times a weekly journal founded three years before by the late Bishop S V Ryan Father Cronin and the Bishop Were great friends and the prelate kpew that he was entrusting the work to good bands For years he labored day and night to make the paper a success and about a year ago had the pleasure of installing bin a new and modernly equipped plant Last summer Father Cronin was seriously injured in a street car accident and for awhile his life was despaired of To the delight of his friends he rallied and it was thought that his complete recovery was assured It is believed now that heart disease which caused his death was superinduced by the injuries received last summer Father Cronin made several trips abroad during the past thirty years and was an ardent advocate of home rule fox Ireland He and the late Premier Glad

Jeremiah Bacon of J Bacon Sons now traveling in Europe is Vice President of that body These are only a few of the representative men that belong to this admirable society that is engaged in doing the work of the SaviourThe Vincent de Paul Society was started in Paris France in 1833 and was founded by Frederick Ozanam a law student and at that time about twenty years of age With seven others all young men save one he started this power for good which has since spread all over the civilized world Once started on this momentous mission it spread rapidly throughout France Then the seed was sowed on the fertile soil of Ire land From there it came to the United States with the Irish people priest and peasant It is now almost an axiom that there is no well regulated parish without a conference of the society of St Vincent de Paul It has also been called the right hand of the parish priest because its members are always ready and will ing to assist him in any parish work The first conference of the society in Louisville was established by the Very Rev Father Bax pastor of St Johns church on All Saints day 1856 and next year that conference will celebrate its fiftieth anniversary or golden jubilee The rules of the society printed in French originally were first translated Into English by Father flax and were approved by the then Bishop of Louis vile afterward the illustrious Archbishop of Baltimore Martin John Spalding The Cathedral and St Patricks Conferences quickly followed St Johns in establish ing branches and as new churches were built to meet the needs of the growing population new conferences were estab lished At present there are sixteen conferences of the society in Louisville The society is governed by a body known as the Council General with headquarters at Paris France by Superior Councils which supervise a province or country and by Particular Councils which are composed of the Presidents and ViceII Presidents of the conferences in a local I ity or city All Particular Councils make yearly reports to the Superior Council c axd theiirtter report to the CoascllGen i1 eral tFaris l 1 J t I v n D The Society of StVincent de Paul yeas early approved

Labored Cities CciiturleK Old Whose Streets Wore Trodden by Our Saviour Dlany Different Tongues Are Spoken In These Historl cal Old Towns THE DAYS OF ST PETER RECALLED As the holiday season approaches the mind of the devout Catholic instinctively turns to the Holy Land where Christ was born lived with Mary and Joseph where He performed miracles and instructs the multitudes where He suffered and diedwhere He arose triumphant from the tomb and ascended gloriously into heaven There too tae apostles labored after the descent of the Holy Spirit upon them Almost every foot is connected with some event in sacred history Take Jerusalem for instance that old world citin the mountains solemn and serious which is very closely Identified with memories of our Saviour himself Yet followers qf Christ from the begin ring of the Christian era had trials and sufferings One of the best preserved landmarks in Jerusalem is the gate of St Stephen where well authenticated tradition tells us the first martyr was stoned to death by the Jews Remem bering the last words of St Stephen those who followed him prayed in their turn for their murderers The story of St Stephen as a natural consequence suggests the name of that other apostle who was once the greatest foe of Christendom St Paul but who eventually became through Divine inter vention one of the leading confessors of the faith St Paul went from Jerusalem to Damascus commissioned by the high priest of the Jews to arrest and deliver all members of the Christian faith fonndI in that ancient city Damascus is first mentioned in the Bible in the story telling how Abraham directed his servant Eleszar whose hope was fa Damascus to seek the hand of Rebecca in marriage for bin sett Isaac I Again the Bible tells how King David I duringhie I his son Solomon some years later It t waS against Damascus that the prophecies of Jeresaias were chiefly directed Today Damascus is a quiet yet a COla i mopolitan city The American pilgrim t ho visits it will find sUpgliBg together I w t the beretta of the Greek monk the silk hat of the European the white turban of the Arab sheik and the felt cap of the dervish History tells us that the population of Damascus in the days when Paul preached was a polyglot as today and the costumes just as varied and picturesque Following the footsteps of the apostles it is only a abort distance on the plains of Saron from Damascus to Jaffa the Biblical Joppa Here we find two monu ments which tradition connects with the life of St Peterthe house of Simon the tanner and the tomb of Tabitha It was in the house of Simon that St Peter is said to have dwelt when he visited Cor nelius the Roman captain who was the first of the Romans to be baptized a Christian Tabitha we are told was a devout widow rich in good works St Peter was in a nearby town when she died and was called to her home When he arrived he found many women who with tears in their eyes extolled Ta bithas many virtues It was then that St Peter through the power of God performed a miraclehe raised the woman from the dead to continue for awhile her good works upon earth No one can pass through the cities and villages of Palestine without being spirit ually uplifted It has been well said that those who go there with faith will have it strengthened and those who go without it will bring something very like faith away

flatter the lady members Not so the Rev Isadore Phllo a Jewish rabbi at Akron Ohio When called upon recently to address an aggregation of club women in hisjdty he brought a tempest about bis ears by speaking as follows tiThe American club woman is a female anacbrouism She reminds me of adia mond in the shirt bosom of a corpse II stands out glaringly against the dead matter it adorns She is a stranger to her childrenIf she has any and her poodle is the object of more caresses than either her children or her husband The latter is the silent partner who foots the bills and draws his satisfaction from the fact that his name appears on the calling cards of his wife The American club woman is the most undomestic and uu American of all American women She is not womanly Womanliness is womans most glorious dowry When she loses that she is less than a man Woman is the crowning glory of all creation Motherhood was the Divine purpose of her creation Cradles have gone out of style as well as what they were intended for Children today are more often the accidents of nature than the fruit of conjugal love and fidelity Because forsooth it is more fashionable to ride in a carriage than to wheel a baby carriage The advent of progeny is the highest gift within the dowry of womankind It is or rather should be the highest object of matri mony Maidens fair and otherwise please take advice I earnestly advice you to exhaust every fair means to ingratiate yourselves in the affection of some good fellow even if his head be minus the normal amount of fluffy appendage called hair and in spite of the fact that he has cut his wisdom teeth Better a bald headed man with happiness than a home full of dresses and feasting and single ness Because I firmly believe that the home the first and essential unit of the social structure must have a mother at the head of It if both mother and home are to bring into happy consummation the Divine purpose of their institution DEMOCRATS WIN John

the Coming of the Saviour It Encourages Merry Pastimes Mass Was Celebrated at Mid night In tho Olden Cath olic Days COUNTRIES AND MANNERS DIFFER Every Catholic knows that the eves of great feasts are days of fasting and pen ance and yet by almost universal observ ance these same eves have grown to be days of merry making Of Christmas eve this is particularly true not only in America where parcel laden people jostle one another in the crowded streets and stores but in Ireland England Ger manyIn fact all over the civilized globe Each country has its own particular customs on the eve of this great feat of Chdstmast or in modern English Christ timeMany it is true lose sight of the religious spirit of the day Jews and ag nostics engage in the exchanging of Christmas gifts in America as well as Christians It is with them a custom nothing more To the Catholic it is different To himit presages the coming of the Saviour of tnandlcind the infant child that was born in a stable at Bethlehem and laid in a manger Christmas eve to Catholics is a harbinger of joy It has been handed down to us through twenty centuries Why should we not rejoice The Saviour will be born tomorrow He comes for you and for me therefore let us mate merryIndeed it is a blessed custom It teaches charity in its broadest aspect the charity of God toward man It teaches men to make selfsacrifices Un fortunately that is not the spirit of the age Too frequently we see even richI Catholics trylug to get more and poor Catholics envious of the rich In olden days the Christmas holidays began at least a week prior to Christmas and did not conclude until Candlemas day the feast of the Purification of the Blessed Virgin February 2 At present the Christmas holidays include about fourteen days from Christmas eve until Twelfth day or Epiphany Almost the world over this fortnight is still given over to merrymaking and yet it is not the merriment of the old feudal days described by Sir Walter Scott in his Marmion where be tells liOn Christmas eve the bells were rung On Christmas eve the mass was sung That only night in all the year Saw the stoled priest the chalice rear And later in the same exquisite poem Scott tells us England was merry England when Old Christmas brought his sports again Twas Christmas broached the mightiest- ale Twas Christmas told the merriest taleI A Christmas gambol oft could cheer The poor mans heart through half the year Sir Walter Scott while not a Catholic wrote of times whenCatholicism prevailed in England in his own bonny Scotland and In fact before Martin Luther and the misnamed reformation existed Many of the customs that prevailed in England dqring the Christmas holidays it is claimed can be traced back to Irish originFor instance it is claimed that the hanging of mistletoe and the burning ofI the yule log preceded the Christian era The custom of hanging mistletoe from chandelier or roof tree has not been lulled by time The same as centuries ago anyone of the fair six who either from inadvertence or as possibly may be insinuated on purpose passes beneath thesacred spray incurs the penalty of being then and there kissed by any lord of creation who chooses to avail himself of the privilege The dragging home of the yule log toe burned on Christmas day was another ceremony or English custom which though shorn of some of the pomp and circumstance is still maintained in various parts of Great Britain In those olden days the venerable log destined to crackle a welcome to all comers was drawn in triumph from its resting place at the feet of its living brethren of the woods Each wayfarer raised his hat as it passed for he knew well that it was full of good promises and that its flame would burn out old wrongs and heart burningsChristmas eve in Germany is for chil dren the most joyous night in the year In America the children are rarely per witted to see their gifts until Christmas morning In Germany they are permit ted to see the tree and the gifts arranged- on the night before The tree has been arranged by the parents while the chile dren of the family are assembled in an adjoining room At a given signal the doors are thrown open and the tree daz zling with lights from different colored candles burst upon the view of the pleased little ones There is a gift or two for each one Nobody is forgotten For several months before Christmas eve the boys save tip their pennies and the girls are busy making knickknacks Papa mamma brothers sister coutins friends all receive presents None ii forgotten In America we have the system of ex changing gifts end where there are matny German families the children ae Christmas tress no matter how poor they say be Fathers acd tathers and eider broths std sitters stake natty 0- a i sacrifices to let the little ones know that the Christchild is at hand On Christmas eve night it is also cus tomary for Catholics to go to confession This carries with it a desire to begin a new life to forgive enemies to avoid sins to make our hearts a more fitting resting place for the Saviour on the morrow than he bad on that first Christmas day more than 1900 years ago It is of this blessed night that Shakes peare speaks when he lets Marcellus say in Hamlet concerning the ghost It faded on the crowing of the cock Some say that ever gainst that season comes Wherein our Saviours birth is cele brated The bird of dawning singeth all night long And then they say no spirit can walk IThe abroad nights are wholesome then no planets strike No fairy takes nor witch hath power to charm So hallowed and so gracious is the timeGODS WORK How Providence Brought His Straying Children Back to the Fold About ten years ago a Nebraska priest was summoned on a sick call to the town of Shelby in the State of Ne braska Although the little town was to a certain extent a part of his parish being seventeen miles distant from the city in which he lived he was not awar that there were any Catholics to be found in the place That sick call was one of those act of Gods providence which meant much for the cause of our holy faith in that community Whilst there be learned that there were quite a few ought to be Catholics in the town and surrounding country Two months later he returned accompanied bys priest and in the opera house of the town gave the first mission to nonCath olics ever given in Nebraska The con version of nonCatholics was not his chief aim It was the fallenaway Cath olics the lost children of the House of Israel whom he had in mind all during that mission And he was successful beyond his most sanguine expectations Although raw missionary recruits and entirely new to the work they did their best Needless to say the novelty of the exercises drew crowded houses For a full week they set forth the Catholic claims and tried to bear in mind Father Elliots mottoIIWe are tight we can prove it They made no converts They did not expect it They did something which was of far greater Importance Before the end of the week men and women who were never known tore Catholics came forward and showed their colors They did more They took steps towards the erection of a Lurch and within less than a year from that date a Church with a parochial residence had been built and a priest bad been stationed there The list of members when the priest took charge showed that there were fortynine Catholic families within a radius of seven miles who had come forward and aided in the work of founding the parish Ever since that hour the little parish has grown and prospered The church and parochial residence have been enlarged There is a movement on foot for the erection of a Sisters school and there are many other evidences of the genuine Catholic spirit STORIES OF COLLINS I They are telling stories throughout Ire land of the late Patrick A Collins Mayor of Boston Some of these stories may be new to Americans One of his most regnant utterances with reference to the deplorable drain of the lifeblood of Ireland by emigration may now be recalled We want he said when he last vlsitedIrelaudIInot merely Ireland for the Irish but the Irish for Ireland Once wheu making a speech at a banquet of Puritans the Mayor of Boston had his New England ancestry chal enged by some one in the audience Youre not a pilgrim it was urged Not a pilgrim exclaimed the Mayor not a pilgrim why Im the only man- n the crowd who came over these are only samples of the stories that are being repeated throughout the length and breadth of Ireland regarding Mayor Collins and they merely serve to indicate how well known and well liked the former American Mayor and diplo mat was on that side of the water GARB FOR MOTHER It is mothers turn to be taken care of now The speaker was

of of Americas Authors FIrstI the FeastISmooth Polish Supplants More Beautiful istic and OharacterI IN GLARE OF THE OLD HEARTHSTONE Washington Irving the first and greatest of American writers tells in beautiful language the customs and manners of the people of England during the Christ mas holidays In his Sketch Book he saysOf all the old festivals however that of Christmas awakens the strongest and most heartfelt association There is a tone of solemn and sacred feeling that blends with our conviviality and lifts the spirit to a state of hallowed and elevated enjoyment The services of the church about this season are extremely tender and inspiring they dwell on the beauti ful story of the origin of our faith and the pastoral scenes that accompanied its announcement They gradually increase in fervor and pathos during the season of advent until they break forth in full jubilee on the morning that brought peace and good will to men I do not know a grander effect of music on tbeI moral feelings than to hear the full choir and the pealing organ performing a Christmas anthem in a Cathedral and filling every part of the vast pile with triumphant harmony- It is a beautiful arrangement also derived from days of yore that this festi val which commemorates the announce ment of the religion of peace and love has been made the season for gathering together of family connections and drawing closer again those bonds of kin dred hearts which the cares and pleas ures and sorrows of the world are contin dally operating to cast loose of calling back the children of a family who have launched forth in life and wandered widelyasunder once more to assemble about the paternal hearth that rallying place of the affections there to grow young and loving again among the endearing memehtos of childhood There is something in the very sea son of the year that gives a charm to the festivity of Christmas At other times we derive a great portion of our pleasures from the mere beauties of nature Our feelings sally forth ana dissipate them selves over the sunny landscape and we live abroad and everywhere But in the depth of winter when nature lies de spoiled of every charm and wrapped in her shroud of sheeted snow we turn for our qualifications to moral sources Heart calletb unto heart and we draw our pleasures from the deep wells of living kindness wnich lies in the quiet recesses of our bosoms and which when resorted to furnish forth the pure ele ment of domestic felicity The pitchy gloom without makes the heart dilate on entering the room filled with the glow and warmth of the evening fire The ruddy blaze diffuses an artificial summer and sunshine through the room and lights up each counte nance into a kindlier welcome Where does the honest face of hospitality ex and into a broader and more cordial smile Where is the shy glance of love more sweetly eloquent than by the winter fireside And as the hollow blast of wintry wind rushes through the hall claps the distant door whistles about the casement and rumbles down the chimney what can be more grateful than that feeling of sober and sheltered security with which we look round upon the comfortable chamber and the scene of domestic hilarity One of the least pleasing effects of modern refinement is the havoc it has made among the hearty old holyday customs It has completely taken off the sharp toucbings and spirited reliefs of these embellishments of life and has worn down society into a more smooth and polished but certainly a less charac teristic surface Many of the games and ceremonies of Christmas have entirely disappeared and like the sherris sack of old Falstaff are become matters of spec ulation and dispute among commenta torsAmidst the general call to happiness the bustle of the spirits and stir of the affections which prevail at this period what bosom can remain insensible It is indeed tbe season of regenerated feeling the season for kindling not merely the fire of hospitality in the hall but the genial flame of charity in the heart I AUNTY DIDNT CARE j He was a dentist and as a natural con sequence a connoisseur in tooth powder Once when staying for the

Abroad It could not do better than to reecho that greeting of the angels to the shepherds who r watched in the fields near BethleheA more than nineteen centuries ago Glory to God in the highest peace on earth to men of good will Could there be a nobler or more beautiful expression The two sentiments expressed puts in a nut shell the entire doctrine of Chris tianity Glory to God peace to men of good will Thes implic ity of the expression and the sublimity r+ of sentiments were never conceived in human mind It takes in everything that is religious for no man with a spark of religion would wish other than glory to God in the highest nor would he wish anything else but peace toward men Thirty years after this fateful Christmas night the Saviour taught that there were two great commandmentsto love the Lord with thy whole heart thy whole soul and with all thy strength and love thy neighbor as thyself la this our Saviour was but following the sentiments of god the father as expressed- rou the ngels on that first hristmas morn And the same entiment the same doctrine has come down to us through all the ages of Christianity The 3entiI ment is old yet ever new Tongue of orator brush of painter andI pen of poet have been used for c nineteen centuries in describingI depicting and singing the praises I of the new born Saviour and theII angelic message to the shepherds I

and each cit izen should be obliged to pay his jfair reasonable and just proportion- of the expenses of government ac cording to his ability to bear the same On the other hand it wsj insistedagainst the agent that it was a reflection on the citizen to even infer that he had not paid his taxes and when a citizen once gives his tax schedule and swears to the same to be correct this ought to be absolutely finaland i there should be no power or privilege il of officers to go back of the truth of the schedule given by the taxpayer as after all each citizen to a material extent is his own assessor because it is entirely im possible for any officer to know just what personal property citizensj have and he necessarily must trust jimplicitly to the common fairness of the taxpayer The prosecution of tax claims in JJefferson county has resulted in the oollection of hundreds of thousands of dollars which have been turned over to the State treasury and we say without fear of contradiction fthat not one cent of this was paid which did not justly and fairly be llong to the State The work of Mr Bizot stamps him as a lawyer ofability and an intelligent official SEASON OF OIVINO givingIThe spirit of doing something to make others happy seems to be in the very air Not only do men and women present their children and relatives with gifts in honor of Christmas but they send tokens of affection and regard to friends and acquaintances often to the poor and needy whom they do not even know Children receive toys women get jewely men are often the recipients of substantial checks rom employers and various useful articles from their wives and children Boys and girls welcome presents of clothing skates books etc Now when this spirit of giv ing takes hold of

taking active steps to elicit the supportof the forthcomingm Legislature in iits effort to put antct ld to the nefarious system under m which convicts lire inqwemployed an the State penitentiaries It is a well knownfact that un der the fadatirig contract system the employment of convicts is not nlyprejddlclall to tie interests of free labor but materially affects D prosperity of the manufacturer y rho employs free labor It is note generally known however that a State receives ar Average ofal 4 I only forty cents a day for the work w of onlyfeFtigrand the alshes light heat and power to the aaturaUyI M1 I ff l follows that these contractors are enabled to put their products on the market at an exceedingly low price and will if the evil is not corrected drive the employers of free labor out of business Men are imprisoned because they have committed an offense against the Government But under ex isting conditions the imprisonment of convicts in Kentucky affects the interest of the honest mechanic and laborer It often happens that convicts are better clad fed and Ilousedthan the honest man who is in competition with him It is up to the State Legislature to remedy the existing conditions and the Kentucky Irish American hopes and believes that when the time comes to vote on this matter not one member of the Louisville dele gation will be found wanting WHOM TO PATRONIZE It is advertising that makes a newspaper valuable to iits subscribers as well as to the owner it is the motive power that makes the wheels go around The Kentucky Irish American has been enabled by the generosity of its advertisers to issue an enlarged edition this week It is only fair to say that we are thankful to the advertisers for their genet ous support and we bespeak for them generous treat ment at the hands of our subscrib ers when doing their Christmas shopping As has been our custom from the beginning we have sought advertisements from home industries ouly and then only from reliable merchants and manufactur ers If you want to purchase goods from reliable dealers you can make can make no mistake by visitin those whose advertisements appear in this issue and we would appre ciate it all the more should you say to the merchants III saw your ad vertisement in the Kentucky Irish American Joseph Chamberlain Englands foremost exponent of protection for British industries in a recent

beauty of j silence During arid after business hours at the lunch and dinner table we talk onIand on without ceasingas though there j was nothing worth thinking about We invented the talking machine and no Americas is considered properly equipped unless he can talk at all times and upon all subjects Information must be imparted and ideas exchanged t is essential to mental companionship j and develops our faculties of expression j But there is no necessity for the endless and eternal talk in which so many of ueindulge There is force and value liinj forms and expresses character The great men of the world were relatively silent I men they talked only when they hadesomething to say aud the greatest of them said but very little We should cultivate the beauty of silence and develop our

to Bo Over como By the British Cabinet Glance Backward at Liberal Governments Which Failed Many Thorns Among the Roses Into Which New Premier Has Fallen IRISH PARTY THE ONLY ONE UNITED How soon will Ireland reap any benefit from the political upheaval that has caused the downfall of the Balfourad ministration That is now a leading question with Irish patriots in Ireland in America and wherever there are any sons of the Gael Sir Henry Cambell Bannerman the Liberal leader has formed his new Cabinet and it is pre sumed that they are all in favor of home rule for Ireland Yet there may be many difficulties aud obstacles in the way In the first place there is to be a new generalelection and there is no telling how that will result Even should the Home Rulers elect a majority in the House of Commons the House of Lords is still to be dealt with and tbe history l Engish mentTake a retrospective view of the attitude of the British Parliament on the home rule question Brow 1874 to 1880 tthe Tory Cabinet under the Premiership of Disraeli was in power Then came into power the Liberals with Gladstone as Prime Minister During that period the Liberals with few exceptions qpposed not only home ruler but almost every measure of relief for Ireland In less than six years the Liberal Government was in such straits that Gladstone and his Cabinet resigned and were succeeded by a Tory Cabinet with Lord Salisbury sggeneral election was held with the result that the members of the Irish Par liamentary party held the balance of power Gladstone who still continued to be the Liberal leader made overtures to the Irish party or Parnellites as they were then called The overtures were accepted and Liberals and Parnellites together hedged the Tories about with so many difficulties that Salisbury and his Cabinet were overthrown in 1886 Once more Gladstone became Prime Minister and he did make an effort to force the passage of a home rule bill The measure was not acceptable to all of the Irish members yet they determined to aid Gladstone in its passage as a stepping stone to something else But the Liberals to the number of ninetythree revolted from Gladstones rule Joseph Chamberlain Goschen and Lord Hart ington now the Duke of Devonshire led the fight against the home rule measure and caused its defeat n five months after the new Cabinet was formed Gladstone went out and Salisbury once more came into power Of course there was no chance for home rule during his regime As before things did not go well with the resignsin 1892 when a new election was held and the home rule party had a majority- of forty in the House of Commons Gladstone was Premier again and his jhome rule bill wont through the lower ihouse only to be defeated in the House of Lords Once more Gladstone resigned That time lie was succeeded as Premier by Lord Rosebery whose reign was exceedingly brief In less than a year Lord Salisbury was returned to the head of the Government where he remained until three years ago when his nephew Arthur J Balfour succeeded himSir Henry CampbellBaunerman is seventy years of age Twenty years ago he wag Chief Secretary for Ireland and retained the position under two Cabinets or until his political associates were deposed During the past six years Sir Henry has been the Liberal leader He has a record for hard and aggressive work rather than for brilliancy of design- or execution Some of his old confreres ke Asquith and Lord Rosebery are already in revolt against his home rnle policy It can not even be estimated what force they have until the new gen al election is held Meanwhile John Redmond leader ofe the Irish Parliamentary party has issued notice on the Liberals that the Irish members will not support them until they favor home rule One thing Js cer rain the Irish people will send able rep resentatives to the next Parliament and r class of men who are pledged to stick Q together In this way and in this way fttalnedBalfour in his recent speech at Man

Armenian Catholics Obsorvo Christ mas Annually Three Masses Celebrated by the Patriarch of Jerusalem During Night PICTURESQUE GROUPS IS CHURCH As long as the world lasts Bethlehem will maintain a great interest for all Christians It was the birthplace of Christ and there is hardly a day in the year that pilgrimages are not made to that Holy City Looking across the hills to the northeast one tees a long irregular depression the valley of the Jordan Directly east is the Dead Sea and the mountains of Moab On the west is the valley of Sharou looking toward the Mediterranean and on the south stretches the land of Hebron and the hills of Palestine Bethlehem has three Christmases the Catholics celebrate on December 25 twelve days later iIK the celebration of the Greek church and twelve days after the Greeks the Armenian Catholics celt ebrate Each of these churches bring immense pilgrimages to Bethlehem Jews Gentiles and Mohammedaus are in evidence in each of these pilgrimages The Roman Catholic pilgrimage begins at the same hour every ysar 2 oclockin the afternoon The procession leaves Jerusalem at that hour passing through the celebrated Jaffa gate down through the valley of Hinnom and stretching oVer the southern hills From Jerusa llam to Bethlehem is seven miles Over this road went Joseph and Mary the Blessed Virgin a little over nineteen centuries ago to find only a cave for shelter and a birthplace for the Messiah Bethlehem is a city of 8000 inhabitants Its buildings as a rule are stone and many of them are monasteries The Roman Catholic pilgrimage iis headed by the Latin Patriarch who rep resents our Holy Father the Pope He is attended by Archbishops Bishops and priests As the pilgrims approach another but smaller cavalcade leaves Bethlehem and the two processions meet about 4 oclock and together jour ney to the little city Through the streets the pilgrims proceed slowly and solemnly to the church A rich carpet is spread on the square in front for the Patriarch and his assistants Acolytes bring vestments from the church and the Patriarch vests himself in purple and ermine The altar boys begin the Christmas chant and the procession enters the churchAs grows dark the people begin to fill the church The men sit on one side and the women on the other Nuns of various orders are mixed in among the wonieu of Bethlehem The bright and flowing robes of these Oriental women make quite a contrast to the sombre hues of the nuns At 0 oclock the first Christmass mass begins When it is finished few leave the church so visibly are they im pressed Shortly before midnight the Patriarch begins the second mass and when the clock strikes twelve he pulls aside a little curtain and reveals the fig ure of the Infant Savoinr At that solemn moment the tongues of people of every nation join in singing Gloria in Excelsis Deo et in tens pax During the mass a second figure of the Infant Redeemer in the manger is brought in and exhibited to the faithful The third mass is concluded about 3 oclock in the morning At this time the general cel ebration is over but then the various religious orders begin their respective rites In the gray dawn of early morning the Patriarch returns to Jerusalem and the shepherds return to their Socks and the pilgrims to wherever their next stop calls them Many of the pilgrims are loath to leave the Holy Land so soon They nearly always visit a cave close to Beth lehem where Joseph and Mary hid the Infant Saviour from the wrath of Herod while they were en route to Egypt Other pilgrims will visit Jericho Many indeed are they who visit Nazareth the home of the Holy Family and the city where Our Blessed Mother after the death of her Divine Son kept the solemn vigil of Christmas alone until she was called to keep it with Him in heaven DISTINGUISHED VISITOR Capt John Level former Chief of De tectives at Buffalo and now Police Com missioner at Niagara Falls was in Louisville oil Friday and Saturday of last week as

constructed to connect Louisville with other cities and towns and many new and handsome buildings are going up There is not one great city thoroughfare that has not its new structures either under way

in Tim Blakes mind as be be held the crowd of shoppers which filled the sidewalks poured through the entrances slut clustered around the windows of thebfg uptown stores Yes Christmas is coming muttered Tim but it is going to be a mighty poor Christmas for me unless something turns up II Poor Tim Btake had good reason for thinking as he did He was verily a I stranger in a strange land without a I home without work without even a cent in his pocket Somewhere in the city were Tims wife and child and though he had sought them anxiously they still remained unfound Tim was a carpenter by trade and back in the quiet Maine town whence he had come he had owned a humble shop over which he lived with his wife and little Joey A few months before Joey had sick He wont live through thetakenII ter said old Dr Gordon can get him to a warmer Tim did the ouly thingclimateII der the circumstances sold his shop and the cozy little home and put mother and child aboard the train bound for Los Angeles while he remained to settle af fairs After the doctors bills bad been paid and a tourist ticket purchased for himself Tim found he had only a few dollars left The business that required his attention delayed him longer than he had expected and it was not until the early part of December that he arrived in Southern California He immediately started out to seek his little family but on Inquiring at the address where they had been stopping he found they had gone no one knew whither Tim had spent his last few dollars in trying to locate them but without success Guess Im at the end of my rope Tim spoke dolefully nsjie remembered that he had eaten nothing since the previous noon He walked aimlessly down the street through the jostling crowd until he found himself before a newspaper office ou Broadway Spread out on the bulletin board was a copy of the morning edi tion and Tim glancefi over its columns to see if there could be any mention of those he sought Page after puge he perused and was about to turn away with saddened heart when his eye light ed on this advertisement WantedA short stout man Must be goodnatured and love children Ap ply at 10 oclock this morning Man agers office Burgerhams Department StoreTim walked on absorbed in thought Queer sort of an ad he soliloquized 3fhen he beheld his own reflection in the window of a haberdashers store and he took off his hat and scratched his head Well Im short and stout he said aloud to his reflection but not very goodnatured at present Pulling his old silver timepiece from his pocket he found it lacked a few minutes of 10 oclock His empty atom ach helped him to arrive at a quick decision I and he was soon at the big department store inquiring for the managers I office I Tim was directed to take the elevator to the top floor and there found he had t been preceded by a dozen other men t Some of them were evidently short I enough but lacked the required avoirdupois while others were stout but in dined to tallness E One of the number I seemed about the right weight and height but his face was anything but goxl natured The manager surveyed the waiting men and seemed pleased with Tims appearance for he picked him out of the crowd and dismissed the others Youll dothesaid briskly Do you think you will make a good Santa Claus Timslface expressed amazement I dont believe I understand Oh its easy explained the manager I in a businesslike tone You see every year during the Christmas season we have a SantaClaus for the sake of the youngsters It amuses them and proves quite an attraction All you have to do 18 to dress the part and have a pleasant word for the little ones Tims perplexity began to clear away and when the manager asked if he was ready to accept the responsibility of be ing Santa Claus hegladly agreed to the proposal An hour later there was quite a stir in front of Burgerhams big store A short stout man with rosy cheeks flowing white beard and bright cestume trimmed with fnrjjappeared among the shoppers Goody goodyl cried the children clapping their hands and crowding around him while fond mothers looked on and smiledl ndnlgently Tim Blake as Santa Claus was a decided success from the very start The manager realized that he had not made a mistake in his selection of a Santa Claus Hes the best one we ever bad he exclaimed again and agalu to the members of the firm Hes a regular genius Just watch him hugging and kissing those youngsters When Christmas is over I intend to keep him on the payrollJ He tells me hes a carpenter by trade and we have plenty- of that kind of work for him to do and if he remains we will have him for other Christwase and the manager gleefully rubbed his hands The days paused in quick succession and Christmas eve was at hand The manager sat InJ his office poring over an accumulation of correspondence They were the letters to Santa from the chit dren and itwM the managers custom each Christmas eve to read them over and enjoy many a quiet smile at tie childish requests His moodchanged after be picked up one of the notes and glanceditDKKR SANTV CIAUS im a llttel sick boy up hear is the childems

youngsters happy I am going to do It Scribbling a short note he pressed a button and a boy in uniform appearedat the door The manager wheeled in his chair Give this note to the head of the toy

find my auto and chauffeur at the rear door and you can start as soon as you get your load tt In a1 few moments they had lleft the business section and after a brisk run drew up before the Childrens Hospital Tim entered heartily into the spirit of the occasion and was at his best As be passed from bed to bed accompanying each present witn a kind word and a handshake the wards echoed with merriment He bad made the round of the institution and had started down the stairs A whitecapped nurse tapped him gent ly on the shoulder Youve missed one poor little fellow said she and Tim turned and followed her upstairs to the top floor Into one of the rear rooms they went and there Tim beheld a little palefaced tad lying in bed propped up with pillows His eyes brightened as he looked up and saw the Santa Claus of his dreams He stretched out his thin little hands to welcome him Something seemed to come over Tim Blake Throwing off his cap and tearing the snowy wig and beard from his face he threw himself on his knees by the bedside and clasped the sick boy in his arms Its my own Joey he cried in a voice choking with emotion my own JoeyThe door of the room opened and a sadeyed woman entered softly She stopped in bewilderment at the scene before her but in a moment she wis kneeling at Tims side with her arms around his neck The nurse tiptoed out of the room gently closing the door behind her Somewhere out in the night a clock was chiming the hour of 12 and the joy bells were ringing all over the city Christmas had come indeed to the Department Store Santa Claus Eugene P Conway in Donaboes The Cradle of the Lord Two years before I had spent the Christmas holidays at San Mauricio in the hospitable dwelling of the Senora Vtlentnala a most estimable woman not poor in the worlds goods as things go in that part of it I shall not speak here of nor is it to the purpose of my story to describe the festivities of the Christmas season unique and interesting as they were savoring of the people and the soil I shall only allude to one feature which struck me particularly at the time Besides the open corral in which the horses brpwsed at will the whole year round the Senora was the favored possessor of the only stable in San Mauricio At one side was a large manger and this at Chrismas time she was accustomed to fill with fresh clean straw in which on thf solemn eve a small waxen image of the Infant Jesus was placed by reverent handsWhen I arrived once more at San Mauricio again craving the Senoras hospitality I was received with welcome after my belongings bad been placed in the same neat little room I had previously occupied I then accompanied her to the garden where she said she had something to show me There Ifound two beautiful little boys apparently about seven years old making forts on a large pile of sand which had evidently been placed there for their enjoyment But what charming childrenI I exclaimed Twins are they not And to whom do they belong Senora Yes they are twins she replied with a happy smile and they belong tome To youl I replied But I thought Yes yes she answered You thought the truthbut now no longer These are mine The children of B relative I Inquired No Senorita It is not known by anyone who were their parents But the mother was good that is certain And God sent them to me and Rafael so we have received them and so we mean to rear them as our own Come Manuelo and thou too Gaspare Here is a great ifriend a lady who wishes to make your i acquaintanceThe at once responded to the irequest and in a moment we were all iseated together making towers and has tions from the pile of sand Manuelo said the Senora after a while tell to the Senorita howyou hnd Gaspare came to live here and be our childrenThe looked at each other Gaspare nestled close to his brother and Manuelo beganWe were all alone in the little but with mamma We had walked very very far for days and days and days Our feet were sorewe had no shoes and mamma saidWe will rest here in the empty house till our feet are better and then we wilt come oa town maybe where lean get some work And where is your fatherI in quired Our father is dead Senorita said the child Where we lived they bad virala very bed and mamma said We will not stay here And the people were good Inttr rmpted Gapre Tbejr gaveutoMt and put 1is a bag JHHCbbreadaBd fruit fofaeff YM ooatiBaed KlIeloOa a

well those of mamma were too tired She could not get up And then she told us beautiful stories while she lay there so sick and pale Yes beautiful stories of the Infant and the angels and the shepherds and the wise holy kings till we could hear the songs and see the brightly shining starAlmost we could hear and see those lovely things Gaspare corrected Man uelo We did hear what she sang for us Adeste fideles Manuelito Yes yes That we did hear and will always remember You see Senorita she was very good that poor little mother whispered the Senora No friend to take the children she left behind Now tell Manuelo how you came to take the long llong walk I Yes mamma said the child thoughtfully and a little sadly I will tell that One morning mamma said Mis queridos after today Ishall be with you no morett And you did what your mother asked of youYes Senorita The next morning when we awoke our mother was dead We cried a good deal and first I thought- to tell some people in a house on the hill So we went there and the man said We will come But Gaspare and I went by another way and we walked and we walked We were afraid and had only to eat the dry bread that was left in the bag It was two days and we came to San Mauricio There was a big fire on the hill and I rembered that mamma had said Soon it will be Christmas day On the night before they make fires on the hills And said Gaspare to me They will be good to us maybe for the love of the little child Jesus who was born in a stable Let us knock at some door and ask to eat and sleep J I was so tiredsaid Gaspare look lug at me apologetically with his large brown eyes continuedManuelo But I thought then maybe better wait till morning There was a little house near bydarkI thought a stable Inside there were no animals We went in very softly Gaspare and I and the moon shone And there full of clean straw was a big manger and in the mid dIe a beautiful wax baby And Gaspare said Yes I said cried Gaspare excitedly I said there is the manger all ready We are so tired Manuelito let us creep in and sleep beside the Infant Jesus At first I was afraid rejoined Man uelo but then I was not and we crept in and in one minute we were asleep But before we put the child Jesus between us to take care of ns and we knew that mamma had prayed right away when she stepped into heaven And there Senorita burst forth the Senora as she cuddled a boy under each arm there we found them fast asleep Rafael and I when we came at midnight to pray in the stable before the manger And after that what could we do Turn away those blessed children sleeping in the very cradle of Our Lord No that we could never have done And we know Senorita that the mother went to God at once for there was the answer to her prayer pobrecital And there is be sides another strange thing They are called Manuelo and Gas reEmman yel the Saviour Gaspare one of the wise kings Obi it was God the holy Infant So we must always believe Ra fael and I a a a And

millionaires and no nouveaux riches Titles there are in plenty but position counts for nothing unless the persons in question are good sorts in themselves Whereas in Eng land one is tolerated principally for ones wealth in Scotland for ones birth in Ireland It would appear one is judged entirely on ones merits The average Irish household differs from the English in being less stiff more musing and more hospitable Possibly the wall paper may be a trifle moldy from damp and the stair carpets not alto gether innocent of boles while yoni bed room jug and basin may not match but these are counterbalanced by priceless old prints superb bits of old silver and all the fun of the fair It is more amusing to pay a round of country visits in Ireland than In England There is no ceremony but of hearty sincere wel come there is no end There is no anxiety about an Irish party amalgamating for guests are all drawn into the family cir cle whereas an English party does not thaw out until the visit is nearly over and often only shows signs of exhilara tion wnen the hour of departure arrives It is a mistake concludes the critic for the Saxon to start plans for the im proving of Ireland The Irish standard of morality puts English society to the blush There was a young man named Burke Who was very well pleased with his wurkeWhen wanted a can He went to Horetman And swallowed it down with a jurke A lady who lived at Montauk Went outwith a drummer to wauk His moustache was strange cioaersngeIt f- IJ u n rte rue ciias fl Rogers BOOK GO a PRAYER BOOKS AND ROSARIES TO SUIT EVERY TASTE a

weeding out to be done Last year the directory showed a population of 232000 or an increase of 4000 over 1904 and of 8000 over 1903 If it goes to 250000 for 1900 it will show the enormous increase of

Grauman HencheyCross Co was one of the first citizens of Louisville to rec ognize the good that the order wan dolt in the East He made several trips Ea every year and met with many of the Knights By

poor boys who have attained prominence in Louis ville there is none with a larger heart or with a more thorough knowledge of his profession than John J Cronen the eleci trician He first saw the light

Emerald Isle As be says himself and bcisu ashamed of it his parents were poor 6 they were devout Catholics He im bibed lessons of faith and patriotism the slain time Whengnlte a smaUb the Cronen family removed to Loutavil- and young John J received thet rudii ments of his education in local parochial schools He had to go td work at an early age to help support the family Electrical invention was then iu its emi bryonic stage Young Cronens first work was climbing poles for a telephone company Tht work was dangerous laborious and not as lucrative aa it des served to be The youngfellow was ami bitious and desired to learn something mole lstringing wires on telephone poles He investigated beagbt beak studied electrical affairs and soon b es cane able to do any class of electrical II fI C
