[Chicago Times. ] According to the testimony of a gentle* man who has lived long among them, tlie belief is general among the people of tlio south of Ireland in fairies. They are presumed to live in beautiful eaves in the mountains. Many lielated travelers declare that they have heard them sing ut times when there were no sounds to drown their voices. They are supposed to be exceed ingly diminutive in size, and to be able to walk on flowers and grasses without crushing them. It is thought that they can contract or enlarge their 6ize at pleasure and render them selves transparent. It is also believed that they can pass through key-holes and move through the air without being seen. The people speak well of them, probably more from fear than love. A familiar female spirit, called a "banshee," is supposed to ex ercise influence over every house or hovel. A more public elf is "cluricaunc," which generally assumes the form of an emaciated old man. lie is possessed of many secrets, as the location of treasures, which he often reveals to his favorites and those who enjoy his special confidence. A very dangerous elf is "phooka," who appears in the form of a black eat, and occasionally in that of a crow or eagle, and entices people over precipices or iuio swamps and morasses. In Scotland, the "brownie" answers to the "banslicc" in Ireland, and the "kelpy" is identical with the Irish "phooka." The belief in various kinds of fsries was quite common in England till within a short time. The appearance of what arc still known as "fairic rings" in the gl ass served to keep up the belief iu their mysterious origin. It was not till their origin was ex plained by science that the belief in fairies began to die out among the simple people of secluded districts. It is likely that many people in England still believe in fairies, though they hesitate to speak of them to educated people.
