A wet, clinging snow, driven before a
stinging northwest wind, fell throughout
the night and wrought havoc with tele
phone and telegraph wires, completely
cutting off the capital city from conm
munication with the remainder of the
country for many hours. 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

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

winter pictures ever seen. The snow,
f clinging to trees and shrubbery, had

N Englishman who had emer
toured the United thee

American friend: So,
"I cannot understand Patri

there would be a grand national dem- Rom

paraded, the city police force and mili- BRC
tary turned out, there were balls, ban
quets and public speaking. 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

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.

nes The "True Shamrock." 1
nols The "true shamrock" to an Irish
not man, is the plant which is known by
the that name around the spot of his or
his father's birth. But the botanist
rom has as much trouble in identifying it
rom as he has in identifying the "mayflow
rac- oer" of New England, a name Which is
the applied in different localities to the
and trailing arbutus, to the saxifrage, to
toil. the hepatica and to two or three other
pos- plants. 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.
