MKS. MAHV IMIiNNAN
lilts Very Suddenly Saturday .Morning
1'rnin Demon lingo of the" Lungs.
Mrs. Mary Brenunn died very suddenly
at her home in this city Saturday morning
from a hemorrhage from the lungs. For
several years past she had been very frail
but at the time of her death ahcscemcd in
her usual health. She had had a slight
hemorrhage the night before, and another
during the day before her death, but as she
had often had them no grave alarm was
felt. Friday evening she seemed in very
good spirits, chatting whit those who spent
the evening with her and telling stories and
she sang one song for them, "I'm Going
Home," which now seems a strange coinci
dence and almost prophetic. About 3:30
Saturday morning she called her son Fred,
who slept in a room adjoining hers, telling
him to hurry and bring her a drink of
water, which he did, but she was able to
take only a swallow of it and fell back upon
her bed. Hastily summoning a young
woman who made her home there to watch
his mother, he ran for a physician but be
fore they could arrive Death had claimed
his own. It was only twenty-five minutes
from the time she called for help until the
Mrs. Brcnnan came here with her fami
ly in 1888, hoping to benefit the health of
a son who died shortly after their arrival.
The ordinary words we use in speaking of
one who has been loved as a kind, helpful
and charitable friend will seem poor and
inexpressive to the many who have known
and loved Mary Brennan for the true piety
and christian virtues that so endeared her
to them and to whom her sudden death is
a great shock and grief. Much more so is
it to her children who, though knowing
how frail she was, did not expect to be
called upon thus suddenly to part with the
Mrs Brennan was sixty-four years old.
She was born in Ireland but when five
years old her parents moved to Canada,
where she lived until the time when as
Miss Mnry Fitzgerald she w.'.s united in
marriage to Martin Brcnnan, removing to
Bay City, Mich., where Mr. Brennan was
engaged in lumbering. She lived there
until some time after the death of her hus
band in 18S7 when she came to Lincoln,
Neb., a few months later removing to this
county. Of the children born to them
William, Edward, Michael and Mary are
dead, those living being John, Richard,
Mrs. C. A. Newberry, Charles, Martin,
Frank and Fred, all of whom reside in this
city or vicinity and are re.ipecled and
valued members of our community. All
of them were here at the time of her death
except Richaid and Maitin who , ere en
route to California in the hope of benefit
ing the latter, whose health is very poor.
Tliey were at El Paso, Texas, at the time.
It was decided to take the body to Bay
City for interment, as Mrs. "Brennan had
frequently been heard to express the desire
that when she died her body might be
laid to rest beside hur husband's in the
Bay City cemetery. A brief service was
conducted at the home at to o'clock Sun
day evening, by Father Galvin before the
bod was taken to thu depot. The pall
bearers were John Reardon, J. J. Hill, E.
O'Dounell, F. B, O'Connor, Daniel Dunn
and John O'Keofe, sr. Her sons,
John and Fred, accprnpanied the remains
to Bay City where funeral services will be
held at the Catholic church, of which she
was a devout and faithful member. Mass
es have been said for her at the church
here each morning since her death and a
mass was said Wednesday morning at the
same hour as the funeral service at Bav
City. A telegram was received from the
absent sons saying that Richnrd would
join his brothers at Chicago and accom
pany them the remainder of the journey.
Martin will go to Phoenix, Arizona, toawait
brother's return. Wc join the many
friends of this family in sympathy for their
Card of Thanks.
To those who so kindly assisted us in
the last offices and to lighten the affliction
of the loss oi our dear mother,- we return
our sincere and lasting thanks.

Representatives of two jail manufactur
ing concerns were present at the commis
sioners meeting Wednesday and submitted
bids for furnishing steel cages for the jail.
They would cost upwards of 53,000 and
the commissioners' did not desire to make
such an expenditure without a voice of the
tax payers of the county hence it is not
probable that any will be provided until
the proposition is voted upon.

I he Irish Patron .Sutut. rr1
The national apostle aud patron saint of
lUe'.IHsh, Sattit Patrick, Is nn unique per
sonality in the history of christian civiliza
tion. Each recurring year on the 17th
of March, every true child of the Gael
feels his heart expand with enthusiasm
while celebrating the feast of his own
gloriously national patron.
From Armagh to Melbourne and from
Cork to San Francisco St. Patrick's mem
ory is kept perennially green in impressive
church servicos, impassioned oratory,
heavenly music and'songand the "wearing
o' the green." And although St. Patrick
may sometimes have to deplore the faults
or follies of some of the Irish, still hi may
proudly boast that they have as a race re
mained faithful and loyal to their country
and their creed. Fidelity to God's revela
tions and loyalty to the church ware the
characteristics of St. Patrick. The same
two traits distinguish St. Patrick's follow
ers in the twentieth century.
St. Patrick is looked on as the national
patron of the Irish. The national spirit
and tl e religion Patrick brought the Irish
have gone hand in hand through the cen
turies, through prosperty and persecution
till now even the bitterest enemies of Pat rick
and the Irish are forced to admit, grudging
ly it is true, that the claims of the Irish na
tion are just and must be conceded. In a
few years the Irish will own Ireland again,
and the day of peace and protpority will
at last dawn on the Emerald Gem of the
As in the case of the immortal Homer,
many cities lay claim to be the birth place
of St. Patrick. The more probable loca
tion of his birth is near Boulogne-sur-Merin
Brittany on the northwest coast of
France. He came to Ireland in A. D. 432.
with the sanction and aid of Pope Coles
tine. The history of the conversion of
the pagan Irish, who up to Patrick's time
practiced the Druidical religion, reads like
the triumphal march of a conqueror. Be
fore his death. Patrick had the singular
happiness of seeing Ireland converted to
Christianity, the dioceses organized,
churches established, monastic institutions
provided for the religious, and the island
known as the island of saints. It is rather
too late to start to prove that St. Patrick
was not a Catholic, as some would be
glad to do. Such people are fifteen hun
dred years too late, An Irishman may be
corrupted but he will not be "converted"
from the faith of St. Patrick and the tra
dition of his race.
St. Patrick was a "self-made mau," not
in the sense though of our modern pluto
crats. Zeal for God's glory, devotion to
his mission among his people, immense
self-sacrifice made Patrick's name to be
held in benediction, as it will be till the
end of ages. St. Patrick garnered souls
instead of dollars, hence his memory has
flourished like the palm tree, and multi
plied as the cedars Lebanon,

Of Interest to llor.sciicn.
Advices fronif Washington inform us
that maladis du coit has again broken out
in Nebraska and South Dakota and a quar
antine has been ordered by the secretary
of agriculture agains. all horses shipped
from the counties of Box Butte, Dawes,
Sheridan and Cherry in the first named
commonwealth, Custer nnd Fall River in
the latter and the Pine Ridge and Rose
bud Indian agencies. It is a violation of
the law to transport any horse affected by
this disease in any public conveyance or
atong any public road or trail, and there
fore according to the orders issued by Sec
retary Wilson any one who desires to
move horses from the scheduled district
must first obtain a certificate from a gov
ernment inspector that the animals are
free from this disease, which is very read
ily transmitted, Notice of this order has
been served on all the railway companies
doing business within or near the affected
area and additional inspectors of the bu
reau of animal industry have been sent
out with instructions to enforce the ruling
to the utmost. An outbreak of maladie du
coit is a most serious affair, and everyone
interested in horse breeding in Nebraska,
South Dakota and adjacent territory
should do his best to extirpate the scourge
from the land. The particular part of the
country now in question contains many
horses, few of them of great value and
most of them unbroken, but being for the
major part in poor condition they arc all
the more ready to contract the infection
and nono bnt the most stringent measures
will prevail. The Breeders Gazette.

Tliu Lincoln Evening Nowb of jester
day says: August Jnhnko will spend the
remainder of his life behind prison
walls unless executive clemency inter
venes. Tho supremo cotnt last eve
ning affirmed bis conviction in the dis
trict court of Box Butte county of incit
ing and plotting to kill Michael Sirek,
his uncle, holding that the evidence
amply sustained the verdict and that
thoro was no otror in tho trial by the
lower court. Counsel for Jahnke cited
some 300 alleged errors in their appenl
hut Judge Holcoinb, who wrote the
opinion for the court, decides against
them on every point. Tho coutt holds
among other things that the man who
plots and contrives to procure 11 killing
is guilty and may be given as heavy a
punishment us though ho had actually
done the crime himself, and'that it was
not error for the com t to give, up in

A Coward's Weapon.

the pioduct of it cowaid, and the
weapon of a sneak. It is chiefly used

have been importuned time snd again
to do so, but "No sir. we will publish
if you will sign your name to it, not

ashamed or afraid to utter.
