. ST. PATRICK'S DAY
.Soturday, March 17, being the anni
versary of the birth of St. Patrick, a
few remarks and some facts anent this
historical day will'not be out of place
The birthplabe of Ireland's patron
saint is shrouded in doubt, but there is
no question that it was to St. Patrick
that Ireland owed her conversion to
Christianity, and' there is furthermore
no question that his memory is cherished
and revered by every son of Erin and
every descendant in whose veins flows
a strain of Celtic blood.
It appears to have been pretty well
established historically that St. Patrick
was of a patrician family, as his name
implies; that he was carried off by pi
rates when about sixteen years of age
and sold into slavery, as was Joseph of
old, being employed by his master as a
swineherd in County Antrim.
After escaping to the Continent he
educated himself-for the priesthood and,
with the authorityof the Pope, returned
to Ireland to preach the Gospel to its
then heathen inhabitants. Tradition
credits him with having wrought mir
acles, chiefest of which was the driving
of venomous reptiles out of Ireland and
with having rendered the soil of Ireland
so obnoxious to snakes that they cannot
Tlradition says that when St. Patrick
was preaching the docrine of the Trin
ity to the pagan Irish he used a sham
rock, bearing three leaves upon one
stem, as a symbol, or illustration, of the
great mystery, and upon every recurring
anniversary of St. Patrick's birthday
everywhere persons of Irish descent
in all countries wear a semblace of a
shamrock, if they have not the real
plant from the "0uld Sod," as many of
them in America always have. But it
is not only persons of Irish extraction
who are found "wearin' o' th' green"
on St. Patrick's Day. In this country,
where there is such large contingent of
Irish citizenship, it has come to be the
custom for almost everybody to wear
the shamrock, or its equivaient on St.
Patrick's Day, especially those who are
of the same faith as the saint, without
regard to their nationality, because it is
so largely the custom and because of a
certain feeling of sympathy of universal
brotherhood and admiration for the
good man whose life was spent in efforts
for the uplift of his fellow men and for
their everlasting welfare.
So, if you have not a shamrock, dig
up that old green necktie and (lust it off.
"The wearin' o' th' green" won't hurt
you, even if you are not Irish.
