Templemore. County Tipperary. <
Ireland. Aug. 28.?Tens of thousands ^
of the faithful are still flocking to ,
this small Tipperary town to gain J r
religious and physical balm from *
the wonder-working statues belong
ing to James Walsh, the former'
Sisterian novitiate, who has con- I t
ferred upon Templemore a fame! ^
that is exceeded only by Lourdes. 1 ^
The statues have been placed in
a flower bedecked yard on the ,
premises of Timothy Dwan, W alsh s
uncle. Here thousands of the afflicted
gather bearing crucifixes J
and rosaries.
While waiting for admission the
whole congregation periodically
sinks to its knees and with twitching
lips offers prayers to the Virgin
Mary imploring continuance of the
miraculous healing.
The most wonderful case is that l
of Martin Monohan. His story has 1
gone throughout Ireland.
Monohan was discharged from the
army suffering from a broken left

he says. "I limped across the square
to the bouse. v Walsh took mc up
stairs and lifted me up to the cruci- ; ,
fix. It was bleeding. He rubbed
my bare knee against it. I was in
creat pain. Ho prayed over me and
ordered me to pray. We left theh
room together. Then before I left j

It was only after several attempts j

Paris. Aug. 2*.?The duel, for centuries
the traditional method of settling
disputed points of honor in;
Prance, will be removed from the;
iaily press to the pages of history
f the bill proposed by a commission
>f the chamber of deputies is passed
by parliament in its next session.
Meanwhile, the proposition to make
iueling a criminal offense is creating
considerable discussion in Paris.
The bill provides for the punishment
of duelists and their seconds
by imprisonment from one month to
i year and by a fin** of from 1**0 to
1,000 francs. Newspaper* which publish
accounts of duels are also to be
punished. A special court would be
created to settle questions of honor
and the publication of its hearings
would be prohibited.
"War Showed (.'oarage.**
Among the backers of the bill are j
General de Castelnau and the Abbot
Lemire. In a report in which they
defend the proposition tbey say. "At
the end of this most difficult and,
long war. in which all classes ot'
French society have proved, on land
ind on the sea, in sudden attack"* as
well as in the interminable waiting
in the trenches, that they possess all
the forms of courage and that solely
for the defense of right, such honor
And glory has been reflected upon
ill the nation that any one who, to
demonstrate his personal bravery,
think, he must provoke or accept a

Dueling was by common consent
abolished during the war on the
ground that "all lives belonged to
France," and since the armistice
there has been but one encounter.
It took place recently betweeu opposing
lawyers of the Caillaux case
And ended without any bodily injury
to either. As a matter of fact, even
before the war duels in France,
usually ended in this tamo fashion. |
ilthough under the French law if a ;
inelist was killed his opponent could
not be prosecuted.

The duel, though already fast sucurabing
to the shafts of ridicule di- j
rected at it, is not without its seconds.
The Paris fencing masters
'ear that its abolishment will mean '
the decay of their art. Far fromi
prohibiting the duel, they would j
make *t more severe so that it might
regain its ancient prestige.
Thus George Dubois in his recent)
book. "The Point of Honor and the'
Duel," writes: "Families have wept '
snough during the last live years j
and some will never cease to sor- i
row. Let us no longer trouble themi
by these appearances of courage)
tvhere snobbishness and vanity bat- '
