Snow and slush tilled the streets to the depth of a foot or more in places. The wind thrashed many of the city's prettiest decoroations to threads. The immense reviewing stands along the line of march were made well-nigh uninhabit able by the swirling snow. Thousands Delayed. Street car traffic was impeded to the extent of seriously delaying the arrival of thousands who had planned to attend the inaugural ceremonies. President-elect and Mrs. Taft spent last night at the White House as the guests of President and Mrs. Roosevelt. "I always knew it would be a cold day when I was made president of the United States," was the smiling remark of Taft, as he looked out of the White a House windows on one of the prettiest winter pictures ever seen. The snow, f clinging to trees and shrubbery, had t transformed the White House grounds i5 into a veritable fairyland of dazzling 1- white and fantastic forms. The parade planned for the afternoon Lo was so curtailed as to spoil what prom d ised to be one of the most splendid spec 1d tacles of marching men ever seen on h, Pennsylavnia avenue. )r Washington was filled with a record s- breaking throng whose disappointment knew no bounds.

What I want to know is whether St. Patrick or George Washington is the nation's patron saint." H Some idea of how powerful a figure in a St. Patrick was may be gained by the comparing the memory of St. Patrick, born 1,535 years ago, with that of bac George Washington, who has been tha dead a little more than a century. hoz St. Patrick went into Ireland when try, it was plunged in the darkness of mal t paganism. He confronted a hostile wh( people with a dozen 'assistants. He the carried the new civilization with him. this S He met a fighting race and subdued it day a. single-handed. his His first work in reaching a com- an t munity was to preach the gospel in to - the native tongue of the people. This him he did with Pauline fervor and a fire of conviction which fired th.e heart and rid s imagination of the people. You can look at the work of any Irish priest tw to-day and see the duplication of St. an n- Patrick's method. First a talk to the ab people, then the building of a church, lig then the erection of a school, and rep ,I then the exhortation to practice the he Christian virtues, the succor of the ed widow and the orphans, the weak, the ur fallen and the aged. th Patrick established universiti's hl ly which, by the labor of the inmates, re a were self-sustaining, and to which the , ild youth of England flocked by thousands. m ht. Europe, during his lifetime, was in ,nd conflagration.. Hordes of the north, ol the Goths and Vandals, ravaged the south, and the lamp of learning, extinguished g' bi- on the continent, burned brightly in f the cloisters of the monasteries and a ite universities of Ireland. Patrick trans ,es lated nothing into Irish. He taught , eri- the Irish Latin and implanted, full born, the civilization of Christian ous Rome. t ion- He introduced the arts and crafts, o oa developed agriculture, taught industry, L imi- application and love of work. Institu ter- tions of learning, churches and homes ,rch of religious workers, training schools tly, and seminaries, were supported, not. by contributions, but by labor of the inmates. the From illeness to industry, from fighting to the arts of peace, from irs. Druidical worship to Christian prac it's tice and ideals, St. Patrick turned the whole island by personal effort and example, by incessant exhausting toil. ased He died as he lived, without the pos took session of a groat. rhite The arts and letters, science and inied biblical knowledge which fled from the ibald continent took refuge in the famous ml- schools which made Durrow and Ar d ragh the universities of the west. To the eternal honor of Irish hospitality Mrs. be it said that these thousands of hus- strangers from every country in Eu Oms. rope were not only welcomed, but sup evelt plied gratuitously with books, clothes ivate and food. rania The scholarship thus engendered re af 3 furnished Europe when, a century's anarchy over,the Irish mlssionaries emerged from schools and flashed over loaf c the charred remains of European civil four r zation the sacred light of learning. top o So, when the bearer of the name mick Patrick, laborer and toiler though he comk be, remembers that his title is de scended from one of the proudest in Rome, patrician, and thinks in hiS Th poverty and humility of the ancient tient glory of his people, where is there an sicial American who will not honor in him Th the survival through the centuries of becal the prid'e and learning and achieve abset ment of his ancestors, and join him tion on St. Patrick's day in singing "All pota Hall to St. Patrick?" enga BROUGHT OLD FOES TOGETHER. beA Two Results of Deep Potations on St terer Patrick's Day. dit Here is an echo of St. Patrick's day in a story that is going the rounds of the police oflcars in a certain district. .ery In fact, the story began two years back from the 17th of last March. At that time a certain son of Erin, in T honor of the patron saint of his coun- mot try, imbibed just freely enough to ro make him a bit peevish. A gentleman qua e whose aucestors hail from the land of su e the Kaiser Wilhelm did the same of . thing, possibly because it was not the abo day dedicated to the patron saint of his country-the average man can find it an excuse in anything when he wants one to take a little more than is good for wh s him. We ith such inspiration on St. Pat. agl d rick's day, 1907, it did not take much cat to get up a goodly-sized quarrel be- tel tween the Irishman and the German, and each said mean and horrid things e about the land which the other de h, lighted to honor. By and by it ed reached the "You're another" stage. he And for a whole year the two to he guardians of the peace were enemies. an he But on St. Patrick's day next year the twain again indulged in frequent or libations, and this time with different fo es, results, for each one was inspired he with a great and deep love for all to ds. mankind. ra in With this love in their hearts the di th, old enemies met. th, "Herman," said the Irishman, "be- la led gorra, but I'm a mane man.

In spite of the fact that the hailing arbutus is the mayflower of and New England literature, the word is the much more commonly and popularly nous applied to the saxifrage than it is to Ar- the arbutus.
