dog barking excitedly. The mother
ran out and found her daughter lying
on the floor in an eplileptic attack.
Dashing a pitcher of water into her
daughter's face, the mother ran Into

Philip Rockefeller, living in a third
floor flat, heard her and ran to her as

THE CELTIC RET1VAU
For half a century and more, schol
ars In the British Islands and France,
Germany and Norway have been de
ciphering the traces of . an ancient
civilization, to which Europe owed
much of its emergence from the Dark
Ages. On the margins of old manu
scripts in German, French and Danish
libraries were observed notes, or
"glosses," in a language unknown
even to German scholarship. By Ger
man labors mainly that language
has been discovered to be the oldest
existing form of Celtic speech, the
Irish spoken by the, great mission
aries who founded Luxeuil, Bobbio
and St Gall.
Naturally this has reacted on the
national spirit of the Irish people,
awakening a purpose to prevent the
extinction of the old Gaelic speech of
Ireland and the Scottish Highlands.
The educational policy of the British
government has been frankly to seek
its extermination from both countries,
with the result of teaching the young
Gael to forget his native tongue.
ine rehabilitation of Gaelic as an
important member of the family of
Indo-Germanic languages has natural
ly stimulated those Scotch and Irish,
who are masters of that tongue, to
extend its use, to study its exteusive
and interesting literature, and to imi
tate its saga-masters and poets in Eng-
nsn story ana song. There has grown
up a whole literature of Gaelic spirit
though of English form, and a large
school, ot young poets and novelists
is pervaded by this novel enthusiasm.
Is or is this a mere empty lad. This
Gaelic literature, although very differ
ent from Macpherson's travesty of the
Osstanic poems, has an atmosphere
glamour" about it which suggests the
sad but beautiful history of the Celtic
race. As Matthew Arnold reminds us,
the Celt taught the Saxon what he
knows of "the grand style" in liter
ature. The Saxon has been the
pioneer of human advance, but the
Celt has followed with the refining in
fluence of a fancy wedded to beauty,
and fruitful in graceful and noble de
light. The Celtic revival has many sides.
In the labors of the collector of folk
lore It has been rescuing from oblivion
many of the artfully conceived tales
which linger among the Highlands,
and are still woven on fancy's web in
Western Ireland. In the field of philo
logy and history It Is investigating the
structure of Celtic speech, and showing
the influence exerted by Celtic ideas
and poetical forms on the intellectual
development of Germans and Norse
men. In pure literature it is creating
a national Irish theater, and Is foster
ing the imagination of a whole (school
of young poets and tale-writers, of
whom Fiona McLeor and William B.
Yeates are the best known. In edu
cation it is establishing schools for the
study of the Gaelic throughout Ireland
and America, so that this ancient
tongue is now taught in at least one
school in every important city of our
northern states. Saturday Post.
THE STORY OF A SWORD.
General Hector Macdonald began life
as a draper's assistant, but finding it
too humdrum he went for a soldier.
This was Quite to his liking. He saw
plenty of service, and because he was
fond "of a scrimmage they gave him
his well-known nick-name. So good a
soldier was he that he was promoted
from the ranks a rarer honor twenty
years ago than it is now and as lieu
tenant! he went through the first Boer
war. In the disastrous battle of
Majuba he lost the claymore that had
been presented to him by his brother
officers. After the fight, Captain (af
terwards Colonel) P. P. Robertson, of
the 92nd Gordon Highlanders, had a
talk at Newcastle in the Transvaal,
with Joubert, the famous Boer general,
who died during the second Boer war.
Robertson was curious to know why
so many of the British officers were
killed and Joubert told him the Dutch
marksmen took aim specially at them.
The reason was that the officers were
all rich men who could come and go
as they pleased, whereas the "Tom
mies" were all poor, and had to serve
their time and do their fighting,
whether they wished to or nor, for
that was how they made a living.
Moreover the Boer farmers had, Jou
bert said, no quarrel with private
soldiers, and didn't want to kill a
single one of them. Then Robertson
told Joubert about Hector Macdonald
and his lost sword. "Ah," said Jou
bert, "that brave man must have his
sword again. I will seach the Trans
vaal for it and offer 5 reward for it."
Joubert did search and found the
sword in the possession of a farmer,
who cn learning the story, parted
with the clavmore without reward.
"Fighting Mac" had the pleasure of
receiving his good claymore from the
bands of General Joubert himself in
the Dutch town of Newcastle. Cas

License Ballots, Badges for Election
Officials, Voting Machines, Etc.
The judiciary committee had a hear
ing last week on several biiis relating
to election matters. Representative
Phelps of Windsor favored a bill that
license ballots be placed in the envel
opes with other ballots.
Registrar E. S. Young and Represen
tative Philbrick advocated a bill re
quiring election officers to wear badges
when at the polls, for purposes of iden
tification. Mr Young claimed that the
bill should be made to apply not only
to cities but to towns also.
Representative Philbrick withdrew
his bill providing that ballots shall be
printed by the town clerks for the sev
eral political parties, instead of having
them printed by political chairman.
Registrar Young opposed a bill pro
viding that where the MeTammany
voting machines are used there shall
be one for each COO voters. Registrar
Young questioned whether any voting
machines are so far perfected as to
make them of real value. Representa
tive Tucker of Ansonia opposed gener
ally the use of voting machines.
Mr Blake of New Haven advocated
repealing the law requiring special
type and style of printing for ballots,
or making ballots illegal 'because of
slight irregularities. He referred to
the trouble the law made in the elec
tion of ISiX) (resulting in the famous
deadlock session of 19011, and in other
elections since that time, which have
had to go to courts for decision. The
present law is no protection against
trading and sellinsr of votes, for the
ballot may be identified, without break
ing the law, by scratching off a name
and writing in a name or pasting ia
some paster agreed upon.
Mr Blake cited many cases where
ballots had been thrown out for slight
irregularities, and the will of the peo
ple defeated. A mistake in one name
may defeat the whole ticket of a party
and overturn the rightful results of a
state election. Mr Blake argued that
it is better to have the ballots of the
different parties different in appear
anec. This would tend to avert mis
takes by voters in votinir. and the bal
lots could be counted with less risk ot
