The New York Tribune: In Can

a tax on bachelors, so as to drive
them into matrimony. Hut the
chances are that instead of driving

It is interesting to note the anx

Union and the republican organs in
different parts of the state to locate
Hon. Hen T. Cable for a foreign ap

latest advices, he has been provided
with the consul generalship at Lon
don and the mission to Germany

of which are made with the least

THE LIFE OF ST. PATRICK.
Divested of legendary lore the life
story of St. Patrick is not a long one.
Wales, Scotland and France all claim
his birth with the weight of probability
in favor of Wales. The date was about
873. When he was about sixteen vears
old hewas stolen by pirates or marauders
from the north and sold as a slave in
Ireland. For seven years he tended
swine on a mountain in County Antrim,
and then he escaped to the continent,
where he became deacon, priest ani
bishop. He came of good family, and
the ecclesiastical name of Patricins was
given him by Pope Celestino, who sent
him back to Ireland to convert lit
people. The accounts differ about his
age at this time.
Some of the dates given indicate that
lie was about thirty; others that he was
nearer sixty. Before he returned to Ire
land he had visions. Among them was
one of a man named Victoricms, who
brought him letters. In one of these
were the words, "The Voice of the Irish,'
and as ho read them he heard a voice
r. "We Vy thee, holy youth, to come
" henceforward walk among us.
After this he spent his life m preaching,
iinT)fH,iri RT1(1 working miracles, and a'c
complished the practical conversion of
the people of the island. He died at the
age of about 120 years and was buried

to that and then subtract 1 .422.540 and

There is a legend that when St. Pat
rick began to talk to the pagan Iiish of
the Trinity they would not listen to him
until the happy thought 6trnck him of
illustrating the doctrine by means of the
Druid"s sacred plant the shamrock, or
6mall white clover. The three leaves
growing on one stem used as a symbol
made his teachings clear, and the sham
rock became henceforward sacred to St.
Patrick. It is said by others that the
shamrock is worn on St. Patrick's Day
to represent the cross. It is a curious
fact that the trefoil is called shamrakh
in Arabic, and that it was held sacred in
ancient Persia as emblematical of the
Iran Triads. Pliny, in his natural his
tory, says that Ferpcnta are never seen
upon trefoil, and that it is an antidote to

In June. 1SS4, Mrs. Abigail Mossrsan
was interred at the Hazclwood cemetery
in Poweshiek comity, la. Not long since
relatives determined to remove the re
mains to another cemetery. The work
men engaged to perform the job found
the t.-ofnn tilled to overflowing with red
colored mineral water. This was drained
off, whereuioii it was found that the
corpse, with the exception of the fingers
and toes, wan perfectly petrified. The
hair was perfectly natural, as was also a
bouquet of roses that lay on her breast.

A New York clergyman told his con
gregation the other Sunday that all those
who put $5 in the contribution box would
get $50 back in their business within a
year, and that if they failed to realize
that promise they could draw on him
personally for that amount. The box
promptly filled with crisp $5 notes, and
if the contributors realize the tenfold re
turn it is probably safe to say that this
church will not be large enough to hold
the congregation next year. Chicago
