The beautiful emblem' of old Ireland.
It would be hard to write a short
history of the Irish shamrock without
connecting St.Patrick and his history
with it. The two are inseparable.
When St. Patrick tried to convert the
Irish people he used the shamrock
to explain the mystery of the Trinity.
It is evident that he used it exten
sively, for it is mentioned In various
ways in the songs of the bards. An
Irish poet never wrote veree without
devoting a certain amount of effort
to the praise of Ireland's national
flower. One poet says
It grows in the bays, in the braces
and thru mlrelands.
They call it the dear little Sham
rock of Ireland.
Again its praise is .sounded in a

From another poet's pen coma the
Chosen leaf of bard and chief,
Old Erin's native shamrock.
One of Erin's son? expresses his
patriotic feeling as follows:
Viva la, the rose shall fade,
And the shamrock shine forever
From all the underlying sentiment,
expressed either in verse or in prose,
it may be gleaned that the shamrock
grows all thru Ireland and Is known
wherever there beats an Irish heart.
The little plant is of a pure emerald
green and has a small yellow, blos
som. Its botanical name is Trefol
ium Minus Lutea. Different varie
ties of shamrock are grown, but the
one described Is the true shamrock.
The shamrock and the black thorn
are the traditional emblems of St.
Patrick. It Is generally known that
different opinions exist as to St. Pat
rick's nationality, but the Irish peo
pe knew where he lived, what he
did, where he labored and where he
died, and that is sufficient to cherish
his memory lovingly and to keep it
forever green by wearing the Irish
shamrock and by singing "St. Pat
rick Day" on the morning of March
