of Tripp county. How the fire started Is
unknown, but while It was raging great
alarm existed among the homesteaders of
the surrounding region and among the res
idents of the little towns which were com

The fir had Its origin near the Hay
Stack buttes In the afternoon and In a
snort time had gained great headway, be
ing awept onward by a fierce wind. For a
time the wind blew from the west and
swept the fire directly toward the town of
Carter. The clttsens had made ready to
fight It and save their town when the wind
suddenly changed to the southwest, driving
tho fire In a northeasterly direction and
putting oarter out of the danger line. The
fire swept down at lightning sped toward
the new town of Woods and for a time the
town was In imminent danger of belnn

Recently there has been discovered near
Tours, aooordlng to report, the tomb of
Contessa, mother of St. Patrick, the patron
saint of Ireland, and the discovery started
anew the discussion as to the place of his
birth. But Omaha Irishmen, like their
countrymen everywhere, care little for the
argument. They know the great and gen
tle man who brought to their land "the gift
of God's grace, the sweet light of his love,"
was sufficient to his work, whether or not
he waa the nephew of St. Martin of Tours,
a native Of Scotland, a captive slave, noble
or plebeian. The glorious green of the
emerald gera of the sea has proud place on
coat lapel and on oorsage today, In
memory of a character whose saintly life
and virile qualities brought so much
splendor to Christianity out of a nation
ancient In paganism.
The character of celebration of
"Patrick's day" has undergone remark
able change since parades and ruotlona
were the order. It has taken on a dignity
befitting Its significance, and not a whit
has been lost of the earnestness that has
always typified the devotion of Ireland's
sons and daughters to their great apostle.
In song and speech. In music and merri
ment, those of Irish blood celebrate the day
In city and hamlet of Nebraska; and the
like thing Is transpiring all around the
Omaha Irishmen and their families have
keen delight In the recurrence of the an
niversary, and they reverently began the
day by attending divine service In their
churches; for the religious observance Is
no less Important to them than the public
acknowledgment, since the saint himself
was first of all a religious leader. Last
evening they congregated In many a
hail to listen to fervent addresses and
steep their souls In the melodies of the
old land, for whose future the promise Is
now blighter than It has been In many a
long decade. '

SAINT PATRICK'S DAY
St. Patrick's day, March 17, differs from other national holidays in that
It commemorates the death, not the birth, of St. Patrick. Ireland's patron saint.
The date of hla birth is as much of a mystery as his birthplace. The
seven cities which are said to have contended for the honor of giving birth to
Homer, the prince of poets, has a companion example In the four countries
claiming St Patrick as a son. Two divisions of France as It then existed, as
well as England and Scotland, eaoh have been written up and down as his na
tive land, and the dispute Increases as the years roll on. Even at the present,
moment the Ancient Order of Hlberrluna of Worcester, Mass., are protesting
against a school text book which givea Kngland the distinction. Certain It is,
he waa not an Irishman born. No controversy has arisen over the date of hla
death, therefore It is observed every year on March 17.'
St Patrick's public life began In the year SD2, when he was It years of
age, having been made captive by one of the pirate bands infesting northsrn
Europe. Sold as a slave to Ireland, he. spent six years in servitude -in the
Ijsfid which. In later sears, waa the scene of his Immortal missionary labors.
Escaping from slavery to Brittany, the succeeding twenty-five years of his
life were spent chiefly In preparation for his missionary labors. Most authori
ties sgree that his missionary labors in Ireland began In 4S2, continued about
sixty years, and that he lived 120 years. Consequently he died In 4V3.
St. Patrlck'a labora were not wholly confined to Ireland. It Is easy to
trace his footsteps to Kngland, Scotland and the Isle of Man by churches and
localities bearing the name of Patrick. Religiously, however, Ireland alone
remained true to the faith ha preached.
So it happens that the saint's day represents both political and religious
sentiments, and rails forth from Ireland's sons and daughtsrs of the world
around some manifestations of lue for the "Ould Sod."

Electric Light Is
the Pure Air Light
This Is on of the reasons why go many of the bosl
ness houses in our city are) Soda lighted bj electricity.
It means a lot to the merchant to have freah air
always in his store. Hie clerks work better and his cus.
tomers are better pleased with the establishment.
More important still Electric Lig-ht is the safest form
of lighting In existence. Ask any insurance man to con
firm this statement.
Sanitation and safety are two strong reasons for the
tremendous amount of electric light used every where, but
stronger still is the fact that it now costs leas than ever
before. The new Mac da lamp consumes less than one-half
current for the same light.
You may think elertrle lighting is coatly. It Isn't.
