Thomas Casey, a cattle drover, residing near Kilgarvan, was found drowned in the river near by on the 17th ult. It is believed that he committed suicide while temporarily insane.

Alderman John Fleming, of the Derry Corporation, a resident of Strand road, Derry, died suddenly in the Abbey Hotel, Midddle Abbey street, Dublin. He was in his usual health the night previous, but on the following morning complained of pains in the stomach. An influential committee has been formed to promote the proper civilization of barley in Ireland. The use of indif ferent seed and defective methods of har vesting and threshing have led, among other thing, to a considerable deteriora tion of the grain which has been put on me market. Here is last crop report for County Limerick: "The reports on the crops from every district in the county are en couraging. Everything is 'doing well, and the appearance of blight in the early potatoes but partial, and of a kind seldom absent from the tubers, even with more favorable weather. 1 Among the heirloom collection of the Earl of Milltown, recently given by the Dowager Countess to the National Gal lery of Ireland, Dublin, is the famous and most' valuable painting of St. Sebas tian by Vandyke. It is one of the great est gems in the wonderful collection given to the nation. Patrick Walsh, F. R. C. S., of Ballina, died suddenly near his residence recently. Deceased was the Veterinary Inspector for the Unions of Ballina, Killala, Bel ".mullet, Swinford and Claremorris. Mr. Walsh had also a large private practice, and was an authority on the horse-breeding question in Ireland. Mrs. John McMahon, Ballycalla, died lately. She belonged to tiie lineage of the chieftain McMahon, of Claire, and was one of the few of her name who could trace, her descent from the renowned Marshal' McMahon. The funeral took place to the family burial ground, in Kifmilery, and. was largely attended. A bazaar waa opened recently in Mac room to aid the Sisters of Mercy finan u dally. They are doing herculean work in the training and teaching of the little ones of the town and surrounding dis tricts, and the people are heartily and generously supporting the good religious. During the two days the flow of visitors - was continuous, and a good sum was realized at the stalls. The Cookstown Branch of the Irish National Foresters celebrated the 100th anniversary of the execution of John nod Henry Sheares by the unfurling of a new banner. ..The banner is hand-painted in oik, representing an the front a life- attired in the costume of his time, and represented as holding in one hand a scroll, bearing the inscription, "Liberty Equality, Fraternity," and with the other pointing to a landscape with ruins, suggestive of the "dark and evil days" in which he lived. A y6ung Down man, in the person of John Lavery, represents St. Nicholas parish, Newcastle, Eng., as a guardian. He is a native of Dromore. Mr. Lavery has made himself prominent by his services in the Irish cause. For several years he was the Secretary of Branch No. 1 of the Irish National League in New castle. He also served as the Secretary of the Irish Literary Institute of New castle. A resolution having the genuine Irish and Catholic ring in it was adopted at the recent great patriotic demonstration held in Glenmornan. Here it is: "That we still adhere to a national and true honored motto of Faith and Fatherland, and the cordial union of priests and people in all that concern our country's cause; and we condemn the attempts that are being made by tune serving politicians to hound our priests out of public life." There has died at Groscmount, on the borders of Kerry, Timothy Sweeney, who attained the age of 105 years. He had his senses nearly up to the last, and was able to move about with the assist ance of a heavy stick up to very lately. He had many stories to tell of the stirring events which occurred at the beginning of this century, and he remembered of his parents having sheltered fugitives concerned in the Rebellion of '98. He was a stanch Nationalist to the last. Michael McDonald, of Rockmarshall, died recently, at the age of 59 years, Mr. McDonald was for a considerable time a representative of Ballymascaulon on the Board of Guardians. During the laud agitation his action was such as to lead to the suspicion, on the part of the agents of the then Gladstoniau Govern ment, that he was doing effective sericc in the interests of the tenants against felonious landlordism. He was arrested and confined for a long period in Dun dalk jail, without even the formality of a trial or being informed of what offence he was "suspected." At a meeting of the corporation of Limerick, Ireland, the following notice of motion was received of Councilor D, Lynch: "At the next meeting of the Council I will move that it be optional with members of this corporation to wear official robes of green instead of red, and that the royal arms at present exhibited in front of the Town Hall and over the Mayor's office be removed and the city arms substituted therefore, as a mark of respect to the memory of those who par ticipated in the insurrection of 1798, the centenary of which is celebrated this year." The destinies of Claddagh, the curious fishing community that for generations enjoyed the exclusive rights of fishing in Galway Bay, up to recent years were administered by a locally selected digm tary called "King of Claddagh." There people in Galway who remember the t "King," and many strange storic3 told of the habits and manner of the ngular people. Irish is the language of the village, which, though in Galway, is not of it; but, like the rest of Galway, it is decaying, and the trawler is respon sible for much of the grievances of Clad dagh. A vigonous protest against a new penal law for the Irish clergy was recently made in Mullmavatt. On Sunday meeting of the representative men of Mullinavntt was held in the parochial committee room to protest against the exclusion of the clergy from the County Councils under the local government bill. Mr. N. O'Neill presided. Proposed by Mr. R. Darmody and seconded by and supported by Mr. N. Darmody and Mr. S, Carroll : ' 'That we, the people of Mullin avatt, strongly protest against the exclu sion of the clergy from the proposed County Councils as unjust and an insult to a body of gentlemen incomparably the best in Irish society." Passed with unan imity. An open-air'dcmonstratiou, under the auspices of the United Irish League,, was held at Crossmolina. The chair was taken by Mr. O'Boyle, a merchant in Crossmolina. There were fully 5,000 people present. A branch oi me league was tormeu ana a very large number of members enrolled In no part of Mayo is the redistribution of the grazing ranches more required. Owing to the terrible clearances which were made off the fertile lands round Crossmolina, the Moyne and Laggan of Tyrawley, the people are almost exclu sively restricted to bogs and mountains, and are vigorously boycotted as to the fertile lands. The old castle at Donegal, around whose walls are clustered so many treas ured and memorable associations, per haps retains more features of its former grandeur than any of the other remnants of the feudal days scattered over the country. It is, therefore, gratifying to know that a movement for the preserva tion of the antiquities m the town of Donegal has been organized. The old castle, which was vested in the Board of Works by Lord Arran, has been repaired. The numberless arches and windows which were becoming dilapidated owing to the ravages of time, have been ren dered firm and their architectural beauty preserved by the handiwork of the mason. Workmen excavating for new sewers unearthed a long strip of the foundation of the ancient wall of Waterford City, at Johnstown. The wall is runningtoward the old tower in the Railway square, off Manor street, and traces of it are visible between the Catholic Young Men's So ciety and Mr. R. Morrissey's yard in Par- uell street. The wall was torn down wlien the thoroughfare was bcinj; con structed. Judging by the state of prr vation in which the foundations are, the wall which stood on them would not fall away by natural decay. The Borough Surveyor sfates that it will be as difficult to remove the obstruction as if it was solid rock. "How very like the Traiuore' sea wail!'' exclaimed the Waterford Citizen. The All-Ireland Committee of the Irish Financial Reform League met at the Mansion House, Dublin. Mr. Edward H. Woods presided. The following reso lutions were unanimously adopted: "The All-Ireland Committee of the Irish Finan cial Reform League returns its best thanks to the members of Parliament who supported Mr. Redmond's motion on the financial relations question. That this committee, having considered the recent debate in the House of Com mons on the Financial Relations ques tion, desires to state its opinion that nothing has been advanced in the course of that debate which in anyway impairs the strength of the Irish case; and this committee is resolved to carry on with renewed vigor the work of education and of agitation to obtain a redress of the financial grievance of Ireland." The execution of Father Kcarns and Col. Perry, martyred for Ireland's cause 100 years ago, was commemorated in Edendcrry Sunday by a monster meeting at the churchyard of Monasteries, where the remains of the heroes'are interred. The procession, composed of contingents from a radius of twenty miles, was headed by the Edenderry '98 Century Club, with banner and brass band. The beautiful floral wreath for the monument occupied the second position in the procession, and on either side marched men with imitation nikes. A remarkable feature of the procession was the number of pike men. On its arrival at the graveyard the contingents visited the graves of Father Kearns and Col. Perry, over which a magnificent monument was erected by the patriotic Nationalists of Edenderry. At the meeting Mr. William Kennedy presided. Not for the past ten years were the prospects of a rich and bountiful harvest in Skibbereen district, Cork, more hope ful. There is an excellent crop of pota toes. The blight made its appearance tarly last month, but the farmers were advised, the crop sprayed, and is as green today and as flourishing around here as it was any year before the dreaded blight was heard of. The effects are astonish ing, new potatoes having fallen in price from Is to 5d per stone, and ere many days they will be down to 3d, and much less, but they can no longer be scarcely called "new" in this very early quarter of the "Sunny South." The rich yield is not confined to the potato crop Cereals, such as oats and wheat, are most luxuriant, while never was there a finer hay crop, the best portion of which is cut and saved. Mangolds and cabbages are doing well, but there is n widespread failure of Swedish turnips, caused by drouth. Cork Examiner. Some brutal evictions have been car. ried out in far West Clare, toward Loop Head, on the property of Mr. Westbyand Mr. McDonnell, at a tune unparalleled for distress and much misery. Michael McMahon, one of Westby's victims',' was evicted with his ten children and his wife, and his house was pulled down by the order of the landlord's agents. Mat thew Fennell, of Kilballyowen, with ten in family, was also dispossessed and his house wrecked. John McCarthy, of Breaffa, on the same property, was also evicted. Michael Mclnerney, of Kuy ballyowen, having settled, the evictbrs left him undisturbed. For the most part, the tenants evicted have been in receipt of relief during the past seven months, Two families were evicted at McDonnell's property at Lisheen, near Carrigaholt; Martin Collins, with a family of ten, and Mrs. Collins, with a family of seven, and their homes were pulled down. The victims of landlord greed were left on the roadside without food or shelter. JOHN CUDAHY. CONTINUED FROM FIRST TAGB. ful that while the people were dedicating the World's Fair he was cornering tne nrovision market for one of the biggest deals on record. . Six months after this deal was commenced he held 130,000 tierces of lard. In the last week of July, 1893, this immense holding was increased to 200,009 tierces, bought to stem the tide of ili'fpnt at hiffh nrices. But the effort was futile and the fortune won in sucli a quiet way for a speculator crumbled amid the wildest scenes every wunesseu on Chicago's exchange. August 1, 1893, found the city of Chi cago feverish and unsettled in financial circles. Failures of banks and other large concerns, a tight money market and no prospect of relief had sent thepeo- nle in the air. Bankers were loath to lend money on any kind of security, ana concerns sunnosed to be absolutely safe i .... . , were forced to suspend. That Cudahy . .. . Ii 1 1 H. . Y was in straits was leu an over uic nx ehnnpe. Rumors of his beinc in a pinch had been circulated freely for a couple of weeks, in spite of His daily appearance nml tlm lwildness with which he bought. But nothing he could do would stop the collapse. For several davs he had. made hercu lean efforts to raise $500,000, he schedul ing property worth five times that amount in Reeuritv.but in vain. When the bell rang for the beginning of business that morn- ing pork and lard were offered freely. Pnrlr rinsed the nicht before at 419 a bar rel: it opened at 418.70. But no matter how much was otferea no man naa nerve ennuoh to buv. It was known Cudahy was long and that he must unload, so ery broker but those in ins interest fought shy of the goods, for a collapse was certain. The price fell steadily until about 11 o'clock, when it was officially announced that he had failed and deals for his account was ordered closed out. The stampede in pork and lard was nwful. The former fell rapidly to 410.50, nearly 49 on the day, while lard dropped with fearful rapidity trom jm.vo to pi.vu. Something like 40.000.000 went from Cudahy's pockets to those of more for tunate men in that wild morning. He was wealthy at 10 o'clock and apparently hopelessly in debt in another hour. He was too ill to do more man winu up ins deals. Then he retired from the board for a time and recuperated his health. uH ,qej was not uone wiiu uumu uu Mieaw- 'He must pay his debts and get ula fortune back.

Chicago and commenced his task. . He made 110 fuss over the matter; he simply attended to business, watched the mar kets and with his cool head and shrewd business acumen soon began to make himself felt. He did not lack, for friends in his adversity, for his honorable course had kept those the most valuable. He went his way quietly and persistently, winning money on the market sometimes on one side and at;others on the other. A bull by nature, lie still is too shrewd to overlook a good chance to dip in with the bears if good money can be made. For five years.from tl)e day he dropped out of sight he was almost unknown. The general public had forgotten of his existence and of his spectacular collapse. Among certain off those on 'Change it was knbwn that he was coming up. Those who held his paper had substantial reason to believe this, as the paper was gradually absorbed, until not a bit of it is' outstanding. Now, at the close of one more cycle of five years he. is on his feet, owes no man and . is once more rated a wealthv man..
