Remembering his mothers advice about

playing on the strand throwing a great
Fin his
weighty sledge Knowing from
mothers description he knolt down at his feet
and asked for his blessing
If you are 1 son of mine said Fn you

He Is too young paid Dyeermud t

Tin nhodk hands with the youth and his
heart grew big at having such a son Dyeer
mud shook his hand also and swore that as

All wore very fond ot Faolan especially Dyjer
mud who was a oo loyal comrade and he
warned Faolan t distrust and avoid Oralnno
Fins wife as much as he could The youth
was learning meanwhile to practise hats of
activity and bravery At tho end of twelve
months the Fenians were setting out on a dis
tant hunt for which they had long been pre
paring On the eve ot the hunt Oralnne
dropped on her knees before Fin and belled
him t leave Faolan with her for company
until ho and tho rest would return Fin con
sented and Faolan stayed with Oralnne
Whon all the others had gone t the great
hunt Faolan and Oralnno went also to hunt In
the neighborhood They did not go far arid
returned After dinner Oralnno asked Faolan

sentence He lid that he would They played

When he heard this sentence ho went off
throw himself face downward on his bed and I
remained there without eating or drinking till
the Fenians came back from the hunt Fin
and Dyeermud not seeing Faolan when they
came wont In search of him

was fastened and no one gave answer Dyeer
mud forced It and found Faolan on his face In
tho bed After they had greeted each other
Faolan told of the trouble that was on him
I cave you warning against Oralnne said
Dyoermud but did you win any game of hor
I didbut have put no sentence on her yet
I am glad answered Dyeermud and let
me frame the sentence I swear by my sword

also But be cheerful and come to the feast
They went together and Fin seeing them
was clad He knew however that something
had happened to Faolan Dyeeirmid went to
Fin and told him of tho mishap to the youth
Fin was troubled at what had come on his son
I have sworn said Dyeermud t follow

Before setting out Faolansaw a brass ball
on the window and taking it said to himself
I may kill some game with this on the road
Away ho went thon and walked on till he came
to where tho road lay through a wood near
the road was a foresters cabin Out came the
forester with a hundred thousand welcomes
Glad am I to see you gladder still would I
be If your comrade DyeermuU were with you
said the forester
Can you tell me where the dun ox Is
asked Faolan
In this wood said the forester Hbut do
you brine your comrado to help you against
the dun ox by no chance can you slay him
alone Tho dun ox has only ono eye and that
in the middle of his forehead over that eyo Is I
a shield of white metal from that shield two
bars of iron run back to the tall of tho ox He
hind him two champions are always on guard
and when any one nears him the ox sniffs the
stranger and roars out the champions lean on
the bars then and raise up the shield When
the one oye of the ox sees tho person approach
ing that moment the person falls dead What
are your chances of slaying that ox Go back
for your comrade
I will not said Faolan the ox will fall
by mo or I by the ox
I Is you that will fall said the forester
jraolan entered the cabin where the forester
treated him well Next morning the forester
showed the path that lay toward the place
where tho ox was Faolun had not cone far
when tho ox roared und looking In tho direc
tion of tho roar ho Haw the two champions
just seizing the bars to raise up the shield
so falllni other means he sent the ball with a
wellaimed cast and crushed in thu forehead
of the ox through the shield The ox fell dead
but before falling his eye turned on Faolan
and hu also dropped dead
Dyeeimud slept a heros sleep of seven days
and seven nights When he woke and found
no tidings of Kiiolan he was furious but the
four champions calmed him and the young
woman said The wild hal may have killed
him but If as much as ono bone of his body I
can bo found I will brine him to life again
Dreormud Faolans betrothed and her four
brothers sot out and coming to the battle
field found tho army of the wild hag laIn
hut no trace of Faolan They went to the well
then and saw the split head there
The six welt to Gray Fort and found the
cat dead the hind part In one place the fore
part In n second and the head In a third
Tho head must have sent him to the kitten
of Cul Mao Cip aid the young woman that
kitten has twice as much witch power as the I
cat and the old hag all three are sisters I
They went further and finding the kitten
dead went to Und tho dun ox for Faolan
must he I death near him bald tho young
woman When they came to his cabin the
fore tor greeted them and gave a hundred
thousand welcomes to Dyeonnud who wan
surprised and Inquired How do you know
me I have never been in this country
I know you well for I saw you two years
ago In combat with the champion of the East
ern World on Vontry Strand Many persona

see them I was there with the others
Have you seen I young champion pass this
way asked Dyeermud
I have said the forester but he mutt
have perished by the dun ox for 1 have not
heard the ox bellow tills long tuna
Tho six spent that night at the foresters
cabin and bitttlnc out next morning early
they soon found Faolan The young woman
bathed him with Rome fluid from I vial and
opening his mouth poured the rest down his
throat He rose up at once as sound and
healthy a ever All went to the ox which
they found lying dead and the two champions

away Faolan took It up carefully They
wont back to the foresters cabin and enjoyed
themselves well
Do you know where the Mountain of Hap
piness Is Inquired Dyeerroud of the forester
during tho night
I do not said the forester but I know
where the ItlaokBlue Giant lives and he
knows every place In the world That giant
has never given I meal or a nights lodging to
aD Ho has an only daughter who Is In
love with you since she saw you two years ago
In combat with tho champion ot the Eastern
World on Vontry Strand although you did not
see her This daughter is closely confined by
tho giant fearing the may escape to you and I
It you succeed in reaching her she Is likely to
know I hor father knows whore the Mountain
of Happiness Is
How did you get tidings ot tho giants
daughter asked Dyeormud
I will not toll you now said tho forester
hut Ttill an with you to guide you to the
clint and I give assistance

Those keys aro not mine said Dyeermud
they belong to FiioUn who slew tho three
I Faolan slew them said the forester
ho had assistance which caused to
a8018tnce ouAed you come
to him
Keep the keys till we come back laid
Tho seven travelled on thon and were going
ten days when they saw the giants castle
Now this castle stood on one leg und whirled
around always
I will use my strength on that castle to se
if I can stop it t said Dyeermud
You cannot stop It said the forester I
will stop It myself Do you watch tho door of
the castle which Is on the top ot the roof and
when the castle stops spring In through the
door and seize the giant If he Is inside and
compel him to give a nights lodging
The forester thou made for the castle and
placing his shoulder against ono of the cor
ners kept It standing still and Dyeermud
leaping In by the roof came down before the
giant who had started up knowing something
was wrong when the castle stood still
Dyeermud and the giant grappled each other
so fiercely and fought with such fury that the
castle was shivering Tho giants wit begged
them to go out of the castle and fight on the
open and not frighten the life out of herself
and the child In her arms
Out went the BlackBlue Giant and Dyeer
mud and fought until Dyeermud brought
down the giant and sprained his back Tho
there giant for let quarter a roar out of himself and belled
Your head Is mine answered Dyeermud
I Is said the giant but spare me and I
will give you whatever you ask for
I want lodging for myself and my com
panyYou will get that said the giant
All then went Into the giants castle and
when they were pitting at dinner Dyeermud
ate nothing
Why is I this asked the giant
It is I the custom of the Fenians of Erin
said he not to eat at a table where all the
members of the house are not present
All my people are here said tho giant
Thov not answered Dyeermud
are you
have one daughter not present
The giant had to nrlng the daughter They
ate then The forester talked after dinner
with Dyeermud and said
The giants daughter has a maid you
must bribe her to give you the key of her mis
tresss chamber and If you come by the t young
womans secrets she may tell you whore the
Mountain of Happiness is I she knows
Dyeermud wont to the maid You will not
be hero always said he your mlstross will
marry me and leave this caste then youll
have no business here I will take yon with us
I you give mo the key of tho chamber
Tho giant himself keeps that key under hit
pillowat night he sleeps only one nap like 1
bird but sleeps heavily that time I you
promise to take me with my mistress Ill
strive to bring the key hither
I promise said Dyeermud
The maid brought the key and gave it on
condition that she was to have It again within
an hour Dyeermud went then to the giants
daughter and when her first wonder
dlulhter IrBt was over
he asked Do you know where the Mountain
of Happiness Is
I do not my father knows well but for
some reason ho has never told me so he must
have fared very badly there but If you lay his
head on I block and threaten to cut it off with
your sword he will toll you I you ask him but
otherwise he will not tell
I will do that and I will take you to Erin
when I go answered Dyeermud
Where is the Mountain of Happiness 1
asked Dyeermud of the giant next morning
Ho would not tell Dyeermud caught the
giant who could not resist him on account ot
his sprained hack drew him out placed > his
head on a block and said I wit nnt th > n
U u
off you now unless you toll me what you know
of the Mountain Happiness The Fenians of
ErIn have but the one word and it Is useless
for you to resist mo you must go with us and
show us the way to the mountain
The giant finding no escape possible prom
ised to go They set out soon taking all the
arms needed As the mountain was not far
distant they reached the place without great
delay The giant showed them the lair of tho
oxen hut after a promise that he should be
free to escape should danger threaten
I know all the rest now said the forester
Do you said he to Dyeermud stand
straight In front of the lair and I with Faolan
will stand with drawn swords ono on oach
side of tho entrance and do
entrlnlelnrl you said he to
the four brothers knock down the entrance
and open tho place for tho oxen to rush out
I the hoad of each ox is not cut oft when ho
stands In the entrance the world would not
kill him from that out
All was done at the foresters word Tho en
trance was not long open when out rushed an
ox but his head was knocked off by lie force
ter Faolan slow the second ox but the third
ox followed the second HO quIckly that he
broke away took Dteermud on his horgs Ind
ent like a flash to thu top of the Mountain of
Happlnu This mountain stood straight iu
front of the lair hut WaS far off On tho moun
tain tho ox attacked Dyeermud and they
fought for seven days > and nights In a savage
encounter At the end of seven days Dyeor
mud remembered that there was no help for
him there that he was far from his mother
and sister who wuru all he had living and
thnt If he himself did not slay the fierce ox ho
would never see home again so with one final
effort ho drove his Hworl through the heart of
the U lie himself wan so spent from the
struggle and bloodloss that he fainted and
would havo died on tho mountain hut for his
companions who came now They wero seven
days on the road over which the ox passed Iu
a very few minutes
The forester rubbed Dyeermud with oint
ment and all his stitmcth came to him They
opened tho ox took out all the tallow anti go
log back to the other two oxen did In like
manner saving the tallow of each of them
separately hey went next t Ito castlo of
the niaokBlue Giant
Will you set out for home tomorrow
asked the forester turning to Dyeermud
We will answered Dyeormud
Oil foolish people said the forester
Those three oxen wore brothers of Gralnne
and wore living in enchantment should she
got the tallow of each ox by Itself and entire
she would bring buck the throe brothers to
life and they would destroy all the Fenians of
Drill We will hang up the tallow in the smoke
ot the HlackHlue Giants chimney It will lose
some of Itself there When she gets It It will
not hate full weight We will change your
beds and your tables while you aro waiting I
so as to observe the injunction You must do
this for i you do not make an end of Qralnne
Gralnne will make an end of you
All was done as the forester lid At the end
of week when Faolau and Wi friend

time laughed as well as tho others At this they all
The giant and his wife were then satisfied
and tho company sot out for the foresters

Wlioii Dyeermud saw how he could serve

and there rose up before him a young man of
twentyone years
My name Is Arthur son of Dears said the

Noxtday all went to the cantloofthe four
champions and their sister and leaving the
women In that placo they set out for Erin
When the Fenians of Erin saw them Balling
In toward Vontry strand they raised three
shouts of joyous welcome Whoever was glad
or was not clad Oralnno was glad because
there was an end as she thought to her suf
fering Indeed Rhe would not have lived at
all had she kept the Injunctions but sho did
not she received meat und eggs on 81 lav lolar
from alt tho women who took pity on her and
went to see her Ho when she lot the tallow
sho weighed It and finding it some ounces
short she gavu nut three piercing witlls of
distress and when Dyeermud who was of
fiery temper saw that Fnolan was not going
to puntth the woman he raised his own sword
and swept the head oft her
Fin embraced Faolun and welcomed him
Dreormud went to his mother and slater
Vt ill you marry a young champion whom I

The other day a steamer from Bremen
brought to this city n consignment of 2500
canary birds Every year about Klti1100 canary
birds are brought hero from Germany The
growth of this Industry has been very hire
within the pistlHteen ears anti Its prosperity
is said to be due to the fact that cauury bird
raised in Germany hliig holtertlMiinnyothora
Very beautiful birds art lalsed In Kngland
but in song Hun arc nurpassed bv tha Gorman
bird and iernmn dealers assort also that
canary birds brud in the tnitod States cannot
sing as wall as thorn reared In Germany
Consular Clerk Murphy of Berlin has re
cently sent to oyr Gmernnifnt a report on the
canary bird Industry in Germany Ho says It
Isalnioit exclUHivoly house industry of the
very poorest classes For more than a century
canary hroedini has placed a fair degree of
comfort within tho reach of many poor people

In Jielclum anti Holland England liusBlaand I
the Inlted htatos They begun to make ship
mentKto this < ountryover forty years ago and
birds arc now tent even to South America and
Australia The profit of those who rear the
birds is of couisu small but to the poor who
can hardly earn daily bread their bird cage
are like tutu savings t banks from whichat In
terval they may draw a trifle to add to their
other earnings
Mr Murphy says the absolute need of such
assistance is npnroriatod by any oneoc I
