publicans were inclined to believe it
would, with the Low den and Yates

spieuous figure at the primary in the
Fourth ward yesterday was Looney
as was his chief lieutenant in th
Fifth ward, anil in both the Looney in
tluciicc triumphed. In the Fourth the
better element of the party hat

aldermanie candidate, but early yes

ber of the police force, and was held
in the position despite much occasion
for. dismissal until his record became

supposition is he is to be given an

Jenkins, but the Lowden delegate
ticket was elected. In the Fifth the
Looney forces were equally conspicu

Came of Patrician Family.
The real St. Patrick was born in
72. of parician family. At the ::ge

sold him into slavery in Ireland.
lie was employe! as swineherd, in
the county of Antrim, by his master
for seven years, during which time

The shamrock, or small white clov

day. The popular notion is that to
explain ihe doctrine f the Trinity to
the Pagan Iris-h. St. Patrick used this

stem, as a s mbol or illustration of
the great mystery.
It was after mauy years of labor
among his chosen people that the real
St. Patrick went to his rest. Legen
dary history tells us that lie was 121
ears old when he was laid away be

that still lives in that part of tht
