No healthy perwon need fear any
dangerous consequences from an
attack of la grippe if properly
treated. It is much the name an a
nevere cold and requires precisely
the same treatment. Remain quiet
ly at home arid take Chamberlain's
Cough Remedy as directed for a se
vere cold and a prompt and com
plete recovery is ure to follow.
This remedy also counteracts any
tendency ol la grippe to result in
pneumonia. Among the many
thousands who have used it during
the epidemics of the past two years
we have yet to learn of a single
case that has not recovered or that
has resulted in pneumonia. 25 and

considerable success, only being in
bed a little over two days, against
ten days for the first attnck. The
second attack, I am ratslied. would
have been equally as bad as the
first but for the use of this remedy,

A VERY OLD SAINT.
FOR ELEVEN HUNDRED YEARS IRE
LAND HAS HONORED ONE MAN.

Amerifa, so f.-.r aa we know, has no
patron saint. Coln:iibns was never can
onized, and Gtorye Washington lived
too late for such honors. Dut sle has
compensation for this lack in the num
ber of saints brought with her settlers.
St. Nicholas, St. David, St. Andrew, St.
George and we know not how many
more have become dominciled, each
bringing his quota of history, legend,
poetry, song and genial association, but
they are incidental thrown in with the
bargain, as it were and our republic
has no one patron saint.
We would not willingly say a depre
ciatoi y word of those distinguished ier
sonages whom we mentioned, but simple,
modest, historic truth compels ns to say
that no one of them is more than a "cir
cumstance" on American soil to him
whose anniversary day, crisp, breezy
and bracing, calls out the long proces
sion, the harp-decorated green flag and
the indestructible shamrock which re
appears in fresh verdure every year.
For something like 1,100 years the 17th
of March has been observed as St. Pat
And yet it is curious how entirely this
eminent saint has been overlooked in
naming places. You have saints all
through the alphabet, from St. Albans
to St. Vincent, but no St. Patrick. The
Scotch have got in their St. Andrew, in
the cold north, to be sure, as was fit.
The Anthonys, Augustines, Bernards,
Charleses, Christophers, Clairs, Francis
es, Johns, Josephs (run into Joes pro
fanely), Lawrences, Louises, Marys,
Pauls, Peters and all the rest have their
names linked with towns, parishes or
streams, but there is not a notable St.
Patrick's anywhere. This can only be
explained by the modesty of those who
hold him in regard, and it is a wrong
that ought to be redressed.
It is to be lamented that so much of
the poetry, song and drollery of a lively,
mirthful, mercurial and imaginative
people have gathered around this name
that the historical character is lost sight
of, and there stands up to the popular
eye a legendary figure, exorcising the
snakes and displaying the shamrock.
Nothing can be further from the reality
than this picture. A great amount of
real scholarship has been expended on
the investigation of St. Patrick's his
tory, and while differences of opinion
exist as to details, St. Patrick, unlike
St. George, of England, is recognized by
all as a true man with a definite record
and a solid claim to the veneration of
According to history, Patrick was a
farmer's son, either on the coast cf
France or of Scotland, most of the early
church authorities representing him
being born about 410, in the neighbo.
hood of what is now Boulogne. HiV
original name was Succath, which the
early writers "of the Irish Christian
church stated meant "brave in heart,"
and the Latin name Patricius was later
given to him.
At sixteen he was carried captive into
Ireland and was in slavery for six years.
While serving as a herder in compara
tive loneliness in woods and wilds the
Christian truth of his early days came
to his mind. He prayed, meditated, be
lieved: and when liberated returned to
his home what would now be called a
converted, actively religious man. He re
membered with pity the heathen among
whom he lived, and returned to them as
a Christian teacher. That is supposed
to have been about the year 432. He
preached the Gospel with singular elo
.jv.ence and such extraordinary effect
thnt he established Christianity so
iitronly in Ireland that it could not be
ov;-i V.uuwn. He baptized the kings of
Dublin and Munster and the sons of the
Ling of Connaught. He also established
St. Bernard testifies that St. Patrick
fixed his metropolitan sea at Armagh.
He devoted much attention to the sup
pression of slavery, one of the conse
quences of the piratical expeditions of
the age. He died in Down, Ulster, on
March 17, of either the -ear 493 or 495.
Here are his own words rendered into
English from the stiff Latin, tinged with
Celtic, in which his "Confessions" are
"I am greatly a debtor to God, who
has bestowed his grace 60 largely
upon me, that multitudes should be
born again to God through me, and that
of these, clergy should be everywhere
ordained for a people lately coming to
the faith, whom the Lord took from the
extremities of the earth. The Irish,
who never had the knowledge of
God, and hitherto worshiped only idols
and unclean things, have lately become
the people of the Lord, and are called
the sons of God."
The "Confessions" the shortest, the
genuine work, without later interpola
tions is in the "Book of Armagh," one
of the richest literary treasures of the
Irish libraries. Daniel D. Bidwell in

of old Virginia natural leaf, ho was
only a moment sending more than a
cloud winding among his m'ihlKirs i:t ;
the Grand I'ac" lie corridor. Steve had'
come in from Denver a few hours be
fore and had Uen in the city just about i
long enough to not care a blank wheth
er he saw an) thing, anybody or any
where. "You can bet that I'll show some ef
these ttnderfeet, if they tackle me, that
I'm the biggest glizzly this side of
the peak," and Steve gyrated and de
scrilKMl a few circles with his feet.
"Nary jump in the road are any of these

the universe is goin ter get into a hull
lot of trouble if they fools with this old
cormorant from away out west."
Old Steve took an extra puff on hi
well seasoned black brier and settled
into a reminiscent mood. He had taken
part in many of the early incidents of
, the border days, and when he was in
clined could tell many interesting tales.
"Why, young fellow, 'way back in
1849 I was one of the first of the boys to
tackle the pony express business. It

look at 'em livin quiet down in Florid ;
or occasionally kickin over the trices

we had to deal with in thet country

struck a deserted transfer station, saw
the poor fellers lyin there with the top
of their head gone, but I had to move
on, as I had a tired pony and couldn't

"Did you ever have any personal en
counters with the Indians, Mr. Rugles?"
"You bet, but don't call me Mr.
Rugles; plain old Steve. Yes, I've heard
the whizz of the arrer and hum of the
bullet, have gone at a dead run with the
bridle reins between my teeth, both
hands busy with two six shooters, and
have been plugged three times. That's
the narrowest escape I ever had," and
the veteran pushed back his gray hair
and exhibited a scar that extended
across the side of the head on a level
with the left temple.
"It was getting along toward night,
and about the time the pony began to
act kinder queer I commenced to realize
that Injuns was somewheres close. Sure

heavy jolting woke me up, and I found
that my saddle had saved my scalp.
Wounded and stunned, I had never lost
my horse sense, yer might say, and 1
had hung on all the time."

friends came up, everybody went up
and "einiled," and Steve promised to
talk more some other time. Chicago
A New Word.
The catalogue of the National Lecture
bureau of New York introduces a new
word into print. This bureau is under
the management of Mr. and Mrs. C. C.
Haskell, who are equal partners.
The firm is announced as Medame
Haskell & Haskell. Miss Elizabeth U.
Gates, already well known as a lecturer,
is the author of this significant and ex
pressive title. It will doubtless come
into general use as the new order of
things makes a term simplifying the
business partnership of men and women
necessary, and this would apply equally
well to such persons, married or single.
