Miss Emma Hermann the aughter of
Mr Joseph Hermann President of the
Sinking Fund has become a pupil of
Lorelto Academy Marion county Ky
She is a most estimable young lady and
has entered one of the finest institutions
in this section of the Union When old
Boreas has hied himself to northern lati
tudes and spring and summer smile on
vale and dell Miss Herman will find how
delightful are Lorettos woods and
flowers and how inexpressibly kind and
devoted are the cultured Lorettines
If the worthy Senator Harrel had been
offered a couple of hundred dollars for
his flooence luring the past glorious
Democratic campaign his name might
not now be illuminating the daily
papers But thousands I That was
more than he could stand His
conceit kept on swelling till he i
finally burst into owning up to his 1
importance He knew that when he
walked back home his constituency
would be wondering whar on airth all
that money came from Theres an old
saying that Tis well to take time by
the forelock so Senator Harl bethought
himself of it
Much censure is being bestowed on the
trailing skirt so dear to most women In
England the short walking length is
usually preferred and mostly worn But
beautiful coquettish France adores the
long graceful folds of the flowing train
Right now it is condemned from a hy
gienic standpoint inasmuch as it picks up
all kinds of dirt containing microbes of
various diseases Diphtheria typhoid
and other genus are caught up by it in
its travels through the city but even so
it has such a hold on the feminine heart
that it is not apt to be given up until it
has run its course Most fashions are
replaced after four or five seasons That
is conceded to be the limit of duration of
any particular style no matter how popu
lar it was at first Long skirts were orig
inally intended only for carriage wear
but the vogue was soon caught up by
every one whether possessed of a car
riage or not Dame Fashion is a fickle
creature and we may expect soon to see
the trailing skirt replaced by the sensible
but not so graceful walking length
The Schreiners issued a pastorale to
be read in as many churches as would
accept it in New York last Sunday In
this open letter to the people the Schrein
ers called upon all nations to recognize
the hand of God in the destruction which
they the Schreiners call down upon the
Boers They see only wisdom greatness
and happiness in the Government of
England and can not understond why
the Boer wishes to be free from the glor
ious British dominion Selfconstituted
prophets they speak of God and L His
I
Ells court and were so i intimate with the
Universal i Lord that they could cry out
IlS prophets and ministers of His If the
Ichreiuers were living during the Rebel
lion in 1776 they would have worked
against the Colonists as they are cow
doing against the Boers Bishop Ryan
of Alton three weeks ago wrote a grand
address to the libertyloving farmers of
the Transvaal in which he urged th m
on to heroic deeds to preserve their free
lam and bade them a hearty Godspeed
Lo which every nation that looks for
right will say amen

The latest interesting thing in the metropolis
ropolis isan academy and training
chool for young women about to be mar
ried The most important subject taught
is the proper management of husbands
Ve often see Hints to Wives written
by > some goodnatured spinster who is
mostly guessing at what she tells us but
this time the education and instruction
are imparted by one who has been
here and she ought to know This
ichool is a good beginning for the
incoming century But in its curriculum
there must be more exceptions to the
rules than can be found in all ancient or
nodern grammars The moods and
tones for instance would form a course
by themselves Just imagine the num
jerless adjectives and adverbs these
brides must learn in order to apply them
In season A good number of common
noun will have to be inserted in this
new study because if Benedict gets home
ate at night and isnt able to give a satis
actory account of himself she will need
a i good command of words in order to
even up As for interjections she is
likely to be bothered with too many of
hem in Course of time so she doesnt
feed to learn any at first
There are seldom to be found Irishmen
Cke Capt ONeil Murphy who fought a
fuel last week with the editor of a
arisian newspaper because ofa carrica
tore of Queen Victoria which had ap
peared a few days before with the editors
consent Perhaps Murphy has not seen
any of the Queens photographs of recent
years or he should have kept his head
At alt events he would have kept his
lame either of which has ever been a
lry Jto the possessor had he given some
of the New York toadies a chance to rush
to mortal combat to resent the audacity
of the Tarisian editor ami thereby relieve
> ur country of at least one Anglomaniac
How an Irishman bearing the honorable
lame of either ONeil or Murphy could
so far forget himself is inexplicable tin
ess to himself He is by far the most iar i
amous freak of the new year

the Transvaal civil service are Catholics
The number of Catholics holding office
under the British is so small that it is not
I worth while mentioning them yet three
fourths of the population in Ireland alone
are Catholics President Kruger was not
compelled to take the cowardly oath that
Queen Victoria has taken That the
tenets of the Catholic faith are false and
idolatrous His large mind and simple
honest manners never allowed him to
crush the weak nor despise the lowly
All are recognized and protected and
have equal claims and equal shares with
the honest burghers of the Transvaal and

of all fairminded people but most of all

The suppression of the native Italian
language on the island of Malta by
Joseph Chamberlain has brought down
upon him the censure of the whole Euro
pean press In a population of 172000
only 2000 are British yet Chamberlain
has decreed that in nil official business
the English language alone is to be
spoken The newspapers are printed in
the native tongue of the island and there
was no necessity whatever for instituting
a change other than the wish to see the
English tongue and with it English man
ners paramount Yet the English have
always been sore against the Boers be
cause in their own schools they taught
their own language the Dutch Why
should they teach the hated English
tongue to their children Settlers in a
new country can nqt refuse to use the
language of the nation among whom they
live Witness the German Irish Italian
and French children of our own public
schoolseven Assyrian all striving to
acquire this same inconsistent form of
speechwhich it is well known is made
up of the odds and ends of all languages
and the most difficult of all to learnbe
cause it is the language of our country
With the cruelty and selfishness peculiar
to everything English they are striving to
take from the Boers not only their land
their homes their lives but should they
succeed eventually they will wipe out of
the Transvaal colony the language of the
Dutch race As they made it a penal of
fense for the Irish to be taught their
mother tongue as they are now doing
the Italian people on the Island of Malta
so will they do the Boers should they
finally down this brave little band May
the God of battles aid the cause of right
that we may not see labeled with victory
the army that has naught on its side but
mightANNIB

sented Resolutions of sympathy with

was had from the national officers who
were then in session at Weshington
The County Board voted that each divi
sion should do its utmost to further the
action of the national officials when word
was received from them
The case of John Muldoon against
Division 9 of Providence for sick bene
fits was tried before Judge Choquet last

left medicine The party with whom
Muldoon lived prevailed on the latter to
get a new doctor It was not counter
signed by Dr McNally Neither was it
approved by the sick committee Atnoi
tion was made to have n special conf
mittee to investigate the case The
President ruled such a motion out of
order and was sustained Then Mul
doon brought the suit The laws of the
order provide that the standing com
mittee shall decide all grievances and
that an appeal shall stand from them to
the County Board It was shown in the
trial that the matter was never brought
before the committee and that no appeal
was taken The court decided in favor
of the division and granted a nonsuit on
the ground that Muldoon should have
exhausted all the remedies within the
order before bringing suit
PURCHASER OP MUCKROSS
Lord Ardilaun the purchaser of the
Muckross estate Killarney states that

were desirous of retaining the estate in
the family
Lord and Lady Ardilaun will not re
side at Muckross His lordship intends
as he has already seats in County Dublin
County Galway and County Clare to let
the house He has no present intention
of curtailing the privileges enjoyed by
the public The tariffs will be rearranged
on a more equitable basis and some
alterations may doubtless be made In the
estate Some new buildings may be
erected but these will not in any way
interfere with the sights hitherto open to
the public
