the majority of the singers know!
about t'ne real Tipperary, says the

It is related that Cromwell once j
stood on a hill top in Erin and sur-i
veyed the smiling expanse of fertile
plain that unfolded before his eyes.
"That is the land worth fighting for!"
he exclaimed. He was gazing at the
golden vale?the neart of Tipperary. j
Tipperary today is a region a.s beautiful

perous, a people proud of their history;
and their relics of the golden age of |
Cashel of the kings. It is a region
whose story is interwoven with the,
most glorious and the most distressing
events of Irish history. It is a region j
brig'nt with color and vivid with ro- j
mance.
A word about the Tipperary of today.'
There is Tipperary the county and
Tipperary the garrison town. No mat-!
ter which of the two the rimester had i
in mind when he made his song. Tipperary
town is described as a "slow";
sort of a place, which never recovered
from tne "knick up" in tne lrisn party (
after Parnell's death?but more of tins
later. (Tipperary county is in the Irish i
province of Munster, and is the sixth1
largest county in Ireland, having 1,-'
: 062,963 acres of peat bog, meadow, field
and mountain. It is a varied and pic-:
! turesque land. Most of it is a great j
, plain. On its southern border are the
j Knoc-kmealdown mountains, and north
: of them the wild Kaltees?Galtymore,
i the hig'nest of them, lifts its ancient;
head over 3,000 feet in air. On the j
east are the Silieve-Ardagh hills, and j
near the town of Templemore the Son
j is Tipperary's biggest river. It tal^es,
its rise in the Devil's Bit, and flows
southward and eastward by the historic
town of Templemore Thurles,
Cashel and Clonmel. The river .Shannon,
the poet's own river, washes the
border of the county.
Tipperary of this modern day is one1
i of the best agricultural districts in
Ireland. Froni Cashel to Limrick,
right in the midst of Tipperary,
stretches the golden rVale, the most
fertile valley in all j?;nn. npperary
is given mostly to agriculture and
dairying. There are some ancient lead
|
mines, whose ores nold a trace of
silver, but they engage only a small;
portion of the populace. Large meal j
and flour mills are scattered o\er the
country, and the town of iTipperaryl
comes second only to the city of C6rk j
as a butter market. |
The town of Tipperary is verj^an-1
cient. King John built a castle there '
as far back as the lath century and :
one of the landmarks of the place is;
|an old gate house which belonged to;
[an Augustinian monastery founded by;
j Henry III. One of the show places of
j the town is the barracks built by the J
English government, about which, by j
: the way, a humorous story is told. It1
seems that the government architects'
were simultaneously planning a barracks
for Tipperary and a barracks for
Hong Kong, China. Both sets of plans!
were drawn up and forwarded to their \
destinations. By some blunder thej
? % ? *-~ "LT/-Vor XTrvn cr i

and the Hong Kong plans to Tipperary. j
Xo one was any the wiser 'until the j
work of the builders was complete. So
it happens that a fine piece of AngloChinese
architecture can be seen any^
day at the base of the Slieve-na-Muck
nil Is of Tipperary.
Tip-rar-ry," as the townspeople call
it, hasn't a very large population?
6,000, according to the last available
census figures. And one reason for
this, they say, is that the lads and j
lasses of Tipperary these many years
have been turning their faces toward
the United States.

Penal Institution.
Xev.s and Couriei.
Columbia, Dcc. 30.?Constructive;
suggestions for improving the condi- j
tion of prisoners in the state peniten- j
tiary and increasing the efficiency of
the institution by placing it more
i
^ early on a parity with prisons run i
on humanitarian lines are contained in'
the report of the state beard of chari-J
ties and corrections to the general
assembly. The section of the report
devo-e'd to the state penitentiary con
i < - -? i.- + V.
tains a great <ieai 01 iin.oriiia.iiuu garnered
by the board and its agents since
the first visit of the board to the instition
on iV'ay 25, 191"). The facts in
regard to the administration, the treatment
of the prisoners, and the prisoners
and their quarters are both (valuable
and informing, throwing light
as they do on the methods in vogue in
the state's chief penal institution. The
board in its report does not comment
directly on these fact, contenting it
self with printing them with its recommendations.
Chief among the recommendations of
the board in regard to the state penitentiary
is that "the aim of the state
penitentiary be made reformatory."
The board declares that the adoption
of this policy by the authorities in
charge of the institution will remove
most, if not all, of the present objectionable
features about the institution
suggested in its report.
Productive Labor.
"We recommend strongiy that the
penitentiary authorities work out
plans Dy wmcn me yxisuueis s"a.n ? =
kept steadily employed in productive
labor," the report continues. "For instance,
we suggest that the old cellhouse,
not now used and indeed unworthy
of use, be torn down and rebuilt
into adequate quarters for women."
Repairing the present quarters
for women, the erection of a rew
kitchen, dining room and chapel are
suggested as other means of utilizing
the energies of the idle prisoners.
"While we think that life out in the
open on the farm is better in most
cases," the board asserts in its report,"still
state-directed and state-controlled
manufacturing for state use
would probably give some of the prisoners
a training they could better realize
upon after their discharge. To this
end, we suggest that the board of directors
of the penitentiary look carefully
into the needs of their own institutions
and of others, both state,
county and municipal, for things that
the prisoners themselves might manufacture,
such as convicts' clothing,
! brooms, brushes, furniture, shoes, etc.
! These industries would probably re!
quire, in some cases, the employment
j of workmen competent to tram ana
direct the prisoners, and would entail
more or less outlay in equipment. But
if the articles to be manufactured are
i properly selected, production can be
j attained on a basis profitable to the
j state.
Idleness Oppressive.
The board declares that the idleness
of the women prisoners at the penitentiary
is "just as oppressive as that
| of the men." It says that the women
should be given a larger area outside
j of their quarters and "be required to
I keep same clean and attractive with
| flowers, grass, etc."
; (The report of the board says that at
' the time the bod'y inspected the penitentiary
in May there were only 97
convicted prisoners in it and at the
time of its inspection in 'November the
number of prisoners was only 119; "so
that one leaves the penitentiary feeling
that so far from its being overcrowded,
it is really a great shell of
an institution with comparatively nobody
in it."
The report says that the board appreciates
full well the problem of discipline,
complicated as it is by so few
prisoners in such a large place without
sufficiently developed work for them."
Consequently, the report continues,
"because there is so little tending to
tneir reformation or penitence in their
present treatment, and because we believe
that they should be trained along
educational lines and prevented from
continuing in unproductive and harmful
idleness, we would suggest, not
recommend, but suggest, for consideration
by the board of directors the feasibility
of removing most, if not all, of
their prisoners to the state farm, providing
hospital and dormitories as may
be needed. If this idea is thought wise,
certain of the suggestions under the
recommendation above would necessarily
be modified."
Safe Keeping Prisoners.
'We recognize," the board declares
in its report, "that it would probably
not be wise to send desperate Criminals
to the farm with its'preserit quarters',"
and also that there must be a place
. f
for the safekeping of prisoners against j
whom theie is a great deal of popular
indignation.''
The board asks, though, whether in
i.iew of the nation-wide tendency to;
take prisoners oat into tne open and!
also cf .h. abmidance of land at the j
jitate laim ir would not be wise grad-j
i ually 10 develop the penitentiary out
there rather than to expend any considerable
amount of money on the
present Columbia property.
In favor of its suggestion r.hat the
directors of the penitentiary consider,
the removal of the prisoners to the
state farm, the state board of c'narities
and corrections argues that "the
assembling of all ihe prisoners at one |
plant properly classified and provided
for would centralize the management,'
I making the occupation, discipline, su-j
pervision and reformation of the pris- j
oners more varied, simpler to main-!
| tain, more effective."
The report points out that industries!
r.z-di'M of cfsito farm Tt
V U i U UC T UV CV.MrVV ? W
! says, too, that the removal of the pris- :
l oners to state farm would be less ex-j
| pensive than keeping them at Colum-j
j bia, for the reason that the present i
'o.erhead expense at ihe penitentiary;
! "can apparently not be reduced, no j
matter how small the number of pris- I
' oners, while at the same time the pres-1
! ent force of guards could handle 600 i
| prisoners as easily as the 119 present'
| at the time of our November inspec1
tion." |
"\fftllifv Pon^itioiisj.
' If these recommendations are put!
! into effect they will mollify consider* J
ably the conditions of the prisoners,
as the board says in its report "we
were told that the prisoner i? confined:
in his cell from about sunset to about j
'sunrise during the week, and from 3
o'clock in the afternon on Sunday until
about sunrise Monday morning."
The board is also recommending the j
nfmn n-n f nf O r?OntlCt + A V1 S 1 f t }l P '
; emyiv/.? HIcut. ui a ?.vr ~
I penitentiary at regular intervals, and
' the employment of a matron to have
charge of the female prisoners.
The board is printing in its report
1 some'interesting figures furnished to
| it by Superintendent Griffith, of the j
'state penitentiary, on the finances of!
I ihe institution. These figures show j
; that since he became superintendent in |
j January, 1S99, Col. Griffith has paid a1
| $10,000 debt he found charged against
; the -institution, purchased for the
j state cut of the earnings of the pen!
itentiary 1,836 acres of land at a total
| cost of $31,443.25, erected buildings at
, the penitentiary, state farm, the negro
| reformatory at a cost of $96,304.88,
! made additions and repairs to ouiiaI
ings costing $32,881.38 and purchased
| machinery an'd equipment to the
amount of $9,938.79.
Besides buying land, erecting buildings
and purchasing equipment, Col.
Griffith has from time to time, put
back into the state treasury a total of
$120,000 of the earnings of the state
penitentiary.
ThP state board of charities and
corrections says in its report that from
data furnished to it by Col. Griffith "it
will be seen that during the seventeen
years he has served the state as superintendent
of the state penitentiary
he has produced over and above what
it cost to maintain the institution the
enormous total of $254,930,"
The report of t'ae board points out
that all this has been produced without

How It Happened.
One New Year's morning a Kentucky
colonel, who i& a regular guest of a
Louisville hotel, came down to breakfast
with a bandaged head.
'ttVhat's the matter with the head?";
I asked several friends.
'Ton found it all!" exclaimed the i
colonel. "We had a little party Jast
night, and one of the young, men got
intoxicated ' and trod on my head as'

HOW OLD IS MAMMOTH CAVE J
Scientists &iy It Has Been Only a Million
Years in Forming.
Doubtless everyone, in this country j
who can read knows something of the!
Mammoth Cave of Kentucky. On the1

her who know very little about how i
this and other similar caves were j
formed, how old the Mammoth Cave1
probably is, what service it performed
for the young government of the United
States during the war of 1812 and
various other interesting features connected
with the greatest of all known
caverns of the world, brought out in
an article in the September number of
the bulletin of the Pan-American
Union, Washington, D. C.
"From time immemorial"?to quote
from the bulletin's article?"caves
have been objects of interest to mankind.
Around them have clustered
legend and superstition, in them men;
shave found habitations for the living,
refuges for the pursued, secret temples
for the practice of their religious rites,
and mausoleums for their dead. In ancient
days they were the abodes of
sybils and numphs of Roman mythology;
in (Greece they became the
temples for the worship of Zeus, Pan,
Dionysius and Pluto, as well as the
homes of the oracles of Delphi, Corinth
and Mount Citheron; in Persia
they were connected with the worship
of Mithras, and in more modern times
popular fancy in Europe people the
mystery-enshrouded caves with elves,
fairies and evil spirits galore."
But, after all, caves are but the rei
suits of perfectly natural forces working
beneath the surface of the earth j
just as they do on its face, and for;
the sake of convenience may be decided
into three classes: (1) Those formed
by the action of currents, theforce
of waves, and the grinding of shingle
against a cliff on a rock seacoast,
which forces gradually hollow out
caves in the weaker places, of which
those found near Bar Harbor, Maine,
may serve as examples; (2) those'
found in volcanic regions, formed "by j
the subterranean flow of lava, or by I
;.he expansion of steam and gases such'
as. those in the Klamath Lake region
in Oregon, which are so large that they
| often served as effectual hiding places
1 for the Indians in the early days of
the conquest of the West; and (3)
those which have been cut out of calcareous
rocks by . the chemical action
of carbonic acid in rain water, combined
with the mechanical friction of
I sand and stones set in forcible motion
! by t'ne streams of water which have
fiown through them for ages. These
last are the most numerous and most
I important in size, and it is to this
class that iM'ammoth Cave belongs.
As most people know, the cave is
in Edmonson county, Kentucky, about
85 miles southwest of Louisville, and
not far from Green river, into which
the cave's subterranean waters empty.
This section of Kentucky, Where may
be found limestone beds frequently
reaching a thickness of 50Q feet, is
noted for its rocky grottoes, sink holes
and caverns, Tfce in the vicinity
i of Mammoth Cave give evidence of but
| little disturbance by the dynamic
! forces of past ages. It is such areas
of limestone deposits with comparar
tively level strata and located somewhat
above a drainage level with
small crevices or joints, that furnish
! the conditions for the formation of un-j
derground passageways and chambers
j by the chemical and mechanical agency
of underground waters.
From a geological viewpoint, Mammoth
Cave is of comparatively recent
origin. Its formation having begun
something 'less than 1,000,000 years
ago in the Pliocene age. The cave action
began after Green river had cut
its channel down into the limestone
stratum which underlies this section.
The rain water, with its carbonic acid
content, speeded through the overlying
earth and passing into and through
the crevices and joints of the stone
at that time above the level of the
river, began the work of solution and
erosion. These underground waters
gathered along the planes of least re-1
sistance, and as the crevices grew in
size more and more of the surface!
water was drained into them, and as
Green river cut its bed deeper into the
limestone underlay the cave waters
kept pace with the process until what
had once been mere subterranean rills i
grew into that remarkable underground
stream know as Echo river,
which now flows through the lowest
levels of the cave and empties intol
Green river. JJunng tne ages it
been at work dissolving the stone and
cutting its way along where resistance
was least, ever seeking lower levels,
it has left behind it the twisted, tortuous
passageways and large galleries
and chambers which form this mightiest
of all known caverns. According
to geologists, it took Green river nearly
1,000,000 years to cut away its present
bed, so the cave is estimated to be;
almost as old. It first came into
prominence during the war of 1812,
when the United States government
needed nitrate to make powder. Some
of ;he large entrance chambers of the
cave had formed the winter habi<ations
of bats for many ages, and as a consequence
the soil had become convert- i
ed into guano beds with a large nitrate
content. As a result the cave became
a nitrate mine whence much of the
powder supply for the young nation
was obtained.
Head, and Then Put Your
Knowledge to Work.
m speaking of the indifference to
progress cn the. part of many folks,
Mr. Wni. A. Lawton of Souch Carolina
says:
"Our country sections are full of just
such folks?men who could be worth
so much more to their communities,
their families, their churches and to
themselves if they would only 'let the
light come in.'."
And he is right. -Splendid as has
been the South's progress in recent
years and hopeful as the future is for
greater things, there still remain in
every community those who refuse to
"let the .light come in,"?those Whose
mental laziness and indifference lead
them to deride as worthless "theory"
the priceless knowledge gathered by
the wisest men of all ages and all ,
lands.
Don't let us ever forget that one of
the greatest blessings that can come
to any one is the desire for accurate
knowledge?for truth?and the parent
or the teacher that can cultivate in
the child habits of thought that will demand
the fullest measure of knowledge
about any problem affecting our
daily lives will be imparting the truest
kind of education and culture. But we
mustn't stop with merely knowing
things; for in doing them, In wise
thought backed by aggressive, positive
action, lie progress and success. We
may know that typhoid and malaria
are carried by flies and mosquitoes;
but, knowing these truth, are they of
any values to us if we allow flies and
mostquitoes to continue to breed on our
premises, leave our houses unscreened,
and from their infection contract diseases
that mean doctors' bills, suffering
and death ?
Give us more light, everywhere; and
| then give us the vigorous action that
| will take facts and incorporate them .
; into our daily lives, that we may live
| better and be better?The Progressive
