Torn Him Loose.
The Chicago Herald has taker, nr
the case of Capt. J. K. White, super
intendent of the railway mail service,
urcin"-his retention in the position
i,a hns occunied through several ad
ministrations. Capt. White was not
disturbed Vv President Cleveland be
tnr n.l ho no doubt expects to be
stained bv him asrain, and it is very
likelv, judging from the Herald's en
dorsement of him, that the same in
fluences which worked in his behalf
before, will airainlend him assistance
to hold his job.
Tuv Aifni s does't share in the ex-
spresed belief of its Chicago contem
porary that the efficiency of the railway-
service would be impaired by the
val of Cant. White, or anv other
republican chief. There are without
doubt hundreds of good democrat?
in the service who could ami would
1311 the office of superintendent as ac
ceptably as has Capt. White. While
the railway mail service is popularly
supposed to be free from political in-
fluences, it is a notorious fact that
democratic clerks have been invari
ably discriminated airain?t in favor
of their republican competitors. It
is true that many of the democratic
appointees of President Cleveland
held on under President Harrison,
but very few. if anv. have been an-
pointed since 1889. Besides, regard
ing Capt. White, he has always been
rather conspicuous for his republi
ran predilections, and a jrentleman
whose acquaintance republican cam
naio-n committees have found it to

their interest to cultivate.
Frank Lawirr'a Petition.

Washington with a yellow grip sack
and a trunk. The grip sack contains

When Hon. Frank begins to un
roll it and read off the names from
Hobart C. Chatfield-Taylor's to ex
Senator Tomaso Cloonan's there
won't be anything for (I. Cleveland
to do but give him the postmaster
ship. And why not? He would make a
good postmaster. He has carried
letters himself and no man ever was
more popular than Frank in his gray
suit with his bag on his back. He is

FOOTSTEPS OF THE SAINT.
E"bwa Name of Patrick Perpetuated In Many
The footsteps of St. Patrick may be
traced almost from bis cradle to his
grave by the names of various places
which he visited during his life. Assum
ing his origin to have been Scottish,
traces of his life begin in Dumbarton
shire, Scotland, where the legendary
place of his birth is known as Kilpa trick
cell or church of Patrick). Dalpa trick
the district or division of Patrick) is in
Lanarkshire. Craigphadrig (the rock of
Patrick) is near Inverness. There are
two churches called Kirkpatrick one at
Crongray, in Kircudbright, and another
at Fleming, in Dumfries.
The place he sailed away from is
known as Port Patrick, and the place
where he first preached in England is
called Patterdale (Patrick's dale), in
Westmoreland. He founded another
Kirkpatrick in Durham, and visiting
Wales walked over a causeway now cov
ered by the sea and forming a danger
ous shoal on Carnarvon bay, which be
came henceforth Sarnbadrig (Patrick's
causewayV He sailed for the continent
from Llan-Badrig (the Church of
Patrick), in the island of Anglesea.
When he went to Ireland he first
landed at InnLspatrick (the Island of Pat
rick), and next at Holm pat rick on the
opposite side of the mainland in the
county of Dublin. On the Isle of Man
ho fouided another Kirkpatrick, near
Peel, and later he landed on the coast of
Ireland, in thu county of Down, where
he converted- the Chief Dielm and bap
tized him on his own threshing floor,
the name, Sabbal-Patriek ;the barn of
Patrick) perpetuating the event. From
there he went to Temple-Patrick, ia An
trim, and thence to a lofty 1J mntain in
Mayo, which has ever since . e-.i oallM
In East Meath he founded an abbev
called Domnachpadroig (the Church of
Patrick), and built a house in Dublin
where St. Patrick's cathedral now stands.
In an island of Lough Derg, in the coun
ty of Donegal, there is a St. Patrick's
purgatory: in Leir.ster, St. Patrick's
Wood; atCashel. St. Patrick's rock, and
there are St. Patrick's wells scattered by
the dozen all over Ireland. His death is
said to have taken place at Downpatrick,
where the remains of St. Bridget and St.
Columb were laid beside him.
A more curiously derived name than
any of these is that of St mill, applied to
a well known place near Downpatrick.
This name was originally Strnth-fhuil
(Stream of Blood), and is said to have
been derived from the following circum
stance: St. Patrick was baptizing a con
verted pagan chieftain at this place and
inadvertently rested the iron point of his
crozier on the chieftain's great to-?, caus
ing a serious wound, from which the
blood flowed freely. The chieftain, how
ever, in his ignorance of the rites of
Christianity, lore the pain without flinch
ing, and his fortitude has been commem
orated as above s;t out.
O'Connell ami trie 'i-.li 1!V.
It was O'ConneM who had ths celebrat
ed altercation with the fishwife on a
wager. O'Connell knw well the effect
of polysyllables on the ignorant ear. Thj

the language of Euclid against billings
gate wound up as follows:

at O'Connell's head, and he was declared

riR Bis: For 20 years I was troubled with
hsart disease. Would frequently have falling
spells and smothering at night. Had to ait up or
get out of bed to breathe. Had pain in my left
side and back moat of the time; at last I became
dropsical. I was very nervous and nearly worn

not sleep on my leftside or back until began taking

long until I felt much better, and I ran now sleep
on cither side or back without the least discom
