Mrs. Mary Brenunn died very suddenly at her home in this city Saturday morning from a hemorrhage from the lungs. For several years past she had been very frail but at the time of her death ahcscemcd in her usual health. She had had a slight hemorrhage the night before, and another during the day before her death, but as she had often had them no grave alarm was felt. Friday evening she seemed in very good spirits, chatting whit those who spent the evening with her and telling stories and she sang one song for them, "I'm Going Home," which now seems a strange coinci dence and almost prophetic. About 3:30 Saturday morning she called her son Fred, who slept in a room adjoining hers, telling him to hurry and bring her a drink of water, which he did, but she was able to take only a swallow of it and fell back upon her bed. Hastily summoning a young woman who made her home there to watch his mother, he ran for a physician but be fore they could arrive Death had claimed his own. It was only twenty-five minutes from the time she called for help until the end came. Mrs. Brcnnan came here with her fami ly in 1888, hoping to benefit the health of a son who died shortly after their arrival. The ordinary words we use in speaking of one who has been loved as a kind, helpful and charitable friend will seem poor and inexpressive to the many who have known and loved Mary Brennan for the true piety and christian virtues that so endeared her to them and to whom her sudden death is a great shock and grief. Much more so is it to her children who, though knowing how frail she was, did not expect to be called upon thus suddenly to part with the loved mother. Mrs Brennan was sixty-four years old. She was born in Ireland but when five years old her parents moved to Canada, where she lived until the time when as Miss Mnry Fitzgerald she w.'.s united in marriage to Martin Brcnnan, removing to Bay City, Mich., where Mr. Brennan was engaged in lumbering. She lived there until some time after the death of her hus band in 18S7 when she came to Lincoln, Neb., a few months later removing to this county. Of the children born to them William, Edward, Michael and Mary are dead, those living being John, Richard, Mrs. C. A. Newberry, Charles, Martin, Frank and Fred, all of whom reside in this city or vicinity and are re.ipecled and valued members of our community. All of them were here at the time of her death except Richaid and Maitin who , ere en route to California in the hope of benefit ing the latter, whose health is very poor. Tliey were at El Paso, Texas, at the time. It was decided to take the body to Bay City for interment, as Mrs. "Brennan had frequently been heard to express the desire that when she died her body might be laid to rest beside hur husband's in the Bay City cemetery. A brief service was conducted at the home at to o'clock Sun day evening, by Father Galvin before the bod was taken to thu depot. The pall bearers were John Reardon, J. J. Hill, E. O'Dounell, F. B, O'Connor, Daniel Dunn and John O'Keofe, sr. Her sons, John and Fred, accprnpanied the remains to Bay City where funeral services will be held at the Catholic church, of which she was a devout and faithful member. Mass es have been said for her at the church here each morning since her death and a mass was said Wednesday morning at the same hour as the funeral service at Bav City. A telegram was received from the absent sons saying that Richnrd would join his brothers at Chicago and accom pany them the remainder of the journey. Martin will go to Phoenix, Arizona, toawait brother's return. Wc join the many friends of this family in sympathy for their great affliction. Card of Thanks. To those who so kindly assisted us in the last offices and to lighten the affliction of the loss oi our dear mother,- we return our sincere and lasting thanks. John Brknnan and Bkotiikrs. Mkc C. A. Newhkrky. Representatives of two jail manufactur ing concerns were present at the commis sioners meeting Wednesday and submitted bids for furnishing steel cages for the jail. They would cost upwards of 53,000 and the commissioners' did not desire to make such an expenditure without a voice of the tax payers of the county hence it is not probable that any will be provided until the proposition is voted upon.

Several from town attended and a pleas ant time is Reported. I he Irish Patron .Sutut. rr1 The national apostle aud patron saint of lUe'.IHsh, Sattit Patrick, Is nn unique per sonality in the history of christian civiliza tion. Each recurring year on the 17th of March, every true child of the Gael feels his heart expand with enthusiasm while celebrating the feast of his own gloriously national patron. From Armagh to Melbourne and from Cork to San Francisco St. Patrick's mem ory is kept perennially green in impressive church servicos, impassioned oratory, heavenly music and'songand the "wearing o' the green." And although St. Patrick may sometimes have to deplore the faults or follies of some of the Irish, still hi may proudly boast that they have as a race re mained faithful and loyal to their country and their creed. Fidelity to God's revela tions and loyalty to the church ware the characteristics of St. Patrick. The same two traits distinguish St. Patrick's follow ers in the twentieth century. St. Patrick is looked on as the national patron of the Irish. The national spirit and tl e religion Patrick brought the Irish have gone hand in hand through the cen turies, through prosperty and persecution till now even the bitterest enemies of Pat rick and the Irish are forced to admit, grudging ly it is true, that the claims of the Irish na tion are just and must be conceded. In a few years the Irish will own Ireland again, and the day of peace and protpority will at last dawn on the Emerald Gem of the western ocoan. As in the case of the immortal Homer, many cities lay claim to be the birth place of St. Patrick. The more probable loca tion of his birth is near Boulogne-sur-Merin Brittany on the northwest coast of France. He came to Ireland in A. D. 432. with the sanction and aid of Pope Coles tine. The history of the conversion of the pagan Irish, who up to Patrick's time practiced the Druidical religion, reads like the triumphal march of a conqueror. Be fore his death. Patrick had the singular happiness of seeing Ireland converted to Christianity, the dioceses organized, churches established, monastic institutions provided for the religious, and the island known as the island of saints. It is rather too late to start to prove that St. Patrick was not a Catholic, as some would be glad to do. Such people are fifteen hun dred years too late, An Irishman may be corrupted but he will not be "converted" from the faith of St. Patrick and the tra dition of his race. St. Patrick was a "self-made mau," not in the sense though of our modern pluto crats. Zeal for God's glory, devotion to his mission among his people, immense self-sacrifice made Patrick's name to be held in benediction, as it will be till the end of ages. St. Patrick garnered souls instead of dollars, hence his memory has flourished like the palm tree, and multi plied as the cedars Lebanon, Mrs. Ed Sweezey died last night, ticulars later Of Interest to llor.sciicn. Advices fronif Washington inform us that maladis du coit has again broken out in Nebraska and South Dakota and a quar antine has been ordered by the secretary of agriculture agains. all horses shipped from the counties of Box Butte, Dawes, Sheridan and Cherry in the first named commonwealth, Custer nnd Fall River in the latter and the Pine Ridge and Rose bud Indian agencies. It is a violation of the law to transport any horse affected by this disease in any public conveyance or atong any public road or trail, and there fore according to the orders issued by Sec retary Wilson any one who desires to move horses from the scheduled district must first obtain a certificate from a gov ernment inspector that the animals are free from this disease, which is very read ily transmitted, Notice of this order has been served on all the railway companies doing business within or near the affected area and additional inspectors of the bu reau of animal industry have been sent out with instructions to enforce the ruling to the utmost. An outbreak of maladie du coit is a most serious affair, and everyone interested in horse breeding in Nebraska, South Dakota and adjacent territory should do his best to extirpate the scourge from the land. The particular part of the country now in question contains many horses, few of them of great value and most of them unbroken, but being for the major part in poor condition they arc all the more ready to contract the infection and nono bnt the most stringent measures will prevail.

Tliu Lincoln Evening Nowb of jester day says: August Jnhnko will spend the remainder of his life behind prison walls unless executive clemency inter venes. Tho supremo cotnt last eve ning affirmed bis conviction in the dis trict court of Box Butte county of incit ing and plotting to kill Michael Sirek, his uncle, holding that the evidence amply sustained the verdict and that thoro was no otror in tho trial by the lower court. Counsel for Jahnke cited some 300 alleged errors in their appenl hut Judge Holcoinb, who wrote the opinion for the court, decides against them on every point. Tho coutt holds among other things that the man who plots and contrives to procure 11 killing is guilty and may be given as heavy a punishment us though ho had actually done the crime himself, and'that it was not error for the com t to give, up in structions felatfve to'tlie lesser degrees of homicide.
