courage and progress of the world.
St. Patrick's Day.
St. Patrick's day, whatever the
changes which its observance has un
dergone in this country, remains an
interesting and important day. It
serves to keep alive a generous in

Americans. A people who thus cher

The intensity of the Irishman's de

measures the intensity of his devotion

Bless the Dear Old Verdant Land.
By DENIS FLORENCE MACCARTHY.
LESS the dear old verdant land!
Brother, wert thou born of it?
As thy shadow life doth stand
Twining round its rosy band,
Jid an Irish mother's hand
Guide thee in the morn of it?
Did a father's first command
Teach thee love or scorn of it?
Thou who tread'st its fertile breast,
Dost thou feel a glow for it?
Thou of all its charms possest,
Living on its first and best,
Art thou but a thankless guest,
Or a traitor,foe for it?
If thou lovest, where's the test?
Wilt thou strike a blow for it?
Has the past no goading sting
That can make thee rouse for it?
Does thy land's reviving spring,
Full of buds and blossoming, F,
Fail to make thy cold heart cling, VW
Breathing lover's vows for it? 'V f'r
With the circling ocean's ring 'r
Thou wert made a spouse for it.
Hast thou kept as thou shoulds't keep
Thy affections warm for it,
Letting no cold feeling creep
Like an ice-breath o'er the deep,
Freezing to a stony sleep, THJ$
Hopes the heart would form for it,
Glories that like rainbows peep
Through the darkening storm for it?
Son of this down-trodden land, Wgr
Aid us in the fight for it. iffi*
We seek to make it great and grand, -j*
Its slipless bays, its naked strand,
By canvas-swelling breezes fanned!
Oh, what a glorious sight for it,
The past expiring like a brand
In morning's rosy light for it!
Think, this dear old land is thine,
And thou a traitor slave of it
Think how the Switzer leads his kine,
When pale the evening star doth shine
His song has home in every line,
Freedom in every stave of it
Think how the German loves his Rhino
And worships every wave of it!

ST. PATRICK WORTHY O HONOR.
His Career Marked with the True
Spirit of Christian Charity.
There are those who, dead to senti
ment, decry the waste of time of a
holiday celebrating the memory of a
But is the festal day utterly wasted?
Hard labor is the portion of mankind,
from the man at the office clesk to the
laborei in the street. Since the bless
edness of leisure has little part in most
lives, the rare feast day brings with it
an inspiration of enthusiasm to cheer
the jaded spirits. It is a time for the
assertion of the man himself. He es
capes for an instant from the grasp of
i ecessity and joys in the privilege of
doing what he likes.
If, by chance, his mind turns to the
hero whose manhood had the power
to stay the wheels of workto a
Washington, a Lincoln or a St. Pat
ricka gracious influence from the
honored dead enters into his soul.
Be his heart as dry as summer's dust,
his faith and hope worn to a shadow,
the passing thought of reverence for
men whose integrity shines steadfast
ly through the ages will have an ele
vating power, and heNwilI
burden on the morrow pneouraged
To-day the sons of Erin honor the
memory of St. Patrick. His gift to
his people is the blessed one of peace
on earth, good will toward men. His
beneficence and genial qualities have
the power to awaken joy in the human
heart. No sacrifice of heathen nor
blood of the martyrs stains his shield
his career was marked with the true
spirit of Christian charity.
All hail, St. Patrick! May your
memory never grow less, but blossom
anew as gladly as the ever-green
shamrock responds to the call of each
specting charity, college or mission
should accept it.
"Yes," he replied, joyously. "An
uncle of mine who was, quite un
known to me, heavily interested in
four or five trusts, died and left me a
share of his estate."
"And, no doubt, true to your prin
ciples, you will soon get rid of it by
giving it to some worthy cause?"
"Well, you see, I'd like to do so the
best in the world, but the way I figure
it, every cent of this money is tainted,
and none of the worthy causes should
be tempted to contaminate themselves
by accepting it."Chicago Tribune.
Forbidden Walking Sticks.
The famous Basque walking sticks
are now prohibited by order of the
government, and from henceforth they
become curios. The Basque stick is
made from a branch of the medlar
tree. At one end a steel spike is
fastened, over which is screwed the
handle. It then forms a club, and,
when the handle is removed, a spike
for driving cattle. The authorities
consider thens dangerous weapons, and
no doubt they are.
