There are many doubtltiR Thomases

neither a Hcotchmnn nor, as some f,ay,

It is said that the art of distillation
was taught to the Irish by St. Patrick,

temperance ndvocato. At all events,
"poteen" was named after him.

On a certain cold morning St. Patrick
and his followeis weio on the summit
of a bleak mountain, with no apparent
means of making a liie. To add to their
discomfort snow wns falling heavily,
and a howling wind had arisen. Now

the niuch-envied possessors of St. Pat

assistance to women in child labor,
and wns a sovereign remedy for epi
leptic fits and to ward off the evil ey

Kveryone knows about the most stu
pendous miracle of all the miracles of
St. Patrick, the one which of itself
was enought to make the saint's name
immortal, hut we don't all know how
the feat was accomplished. Colgan, the
antiquarian, says that tho snakes were
banished from Ireland in the following
no; el and Ingenious manner: St. Pat
rick procured an Immense drum and
then walked forth over hill, dale and
valley while beating a most thundering
tattoo. Right in the midst of his ardu
ous labors a hole was knocked In tho
top, wheieupon the snakes all stopped
"hurt on their march to the sea.
In tho nick of time an angel appeared
and mended the drum. After this tho
operation win continued to tho end
without further accident. Hvery rep
tile was supposed to huvo left the Is
land, but the saint himself know bet
i ter. Thcio was ono snake that behaved
, so badly during the grand march that
J St. Patrick concluded to punish him.
According 10 mo legonu me recalci
trant serpent wan confined in the
gloomy depth of Lough Dllveen, In tho
Oalteo Mountains of Tlpperary. It was
understood that tho prisoner should ho

in tho briny deep. Alas! St. Patrick
was so busy ho forgot all about 1L At
Icnet they say In Tlpperary that on
overy Monday to this day the haplebs
snako comes to the surface of tho lako
and utters this plaint in Irish: "It's a
long Monday. Patrick!"
Tho shamrock in Ireland, as Is well
known, Is nlways associated with tho
saint. Tho populnr reason givon for Ite
peculiar significance Is undoubtedly the
true ono. When St. Patrick commenced
to preach tho gospel to tho pagan Irish
ho found It very dilllcult to make them
eomprohond tho doctrlno of tho Trin
ity. At last a bright Idea struck him.
Ho displayed to tho throng a sprig of
the common trefoil (shamrock) and !n

to emanato from one.

ST. PATRICK'S HYMN.
Our or I lie Mint Wytrl .Miiutt.i'rlpli In
One of the urn. 4 ecclesiastic, as
well as Irish, mamiserlpts in the world
Is the original of 'M. P.ittick's h.Miin.
When It was transcribed Is not known,
but It was ptobably done within a een
turj after the death of the patron saint
of Ireland, at which time a school of
seiili.M tlouilshed under his Immediate
suneisor, St. Colunib. the princely mis
idnnur.x who made the beautiful copy
of the nospel know as the Hook of
Kells. However (hat may be, the uiaii
useiiut Is now preserved In the cele
brated Hook of Hymns (Liber ll.unnor
utn) in the llbr.uw of Trinity college.
Dublin Hlsltop I'sslier expressed It an
his opinion that the Hook of Hymns wiu
at least 1.000 ears old in his time. The
hymn of St Pattlek Is compiled In the
llearla r'elne. a very ancient and aris
tocratic dialed of the liaellc. that ill
which the llrehon laws and the ety
oldest tracts aie wiltten. The oithog
laphy and many of the wouls of this
dialect became obsolete very early In
tho Christian era. when the Latin came
to bo used, so that the dale of the hymn
becomes fixed within n certain century
the sixth. Moreover, it is distinctly
alluded to lu Tlrechan's annotations
on the saint's life written In the sev
enth century. In thl he stated that
the lilsh hMiin ought to be sung for
ever. "Hit peihaps the strongest proofs of
Its antiquity are to'be found In the com
position Itself," says the learned Dr.
Petrle "A Christian living after the
establishment of Christ lanlt.v would
hardly Invoke the Deity to protect him
fiom the spells of women, smiths an 1
Druids; and the placing of the natuial
povvrs of the Creator between himself
and all evil powers has no parallel lu
