HIBERNIANS JEAR OF SAINT
Father Lawrence 0'Donnell of Lin
coln Deliver! Address to
REDEMPTION OF IRISH PEOPLE
"Unparalleled In history Is the astound
In p feat of Ireland's conversion," aald
Rev. Father Lawrence O'Donnell of Lin
coln In his address on Bt. Patrick at a
St. Patrick's day celebration of the An
cient .Order of Hlberlana at Crelghton
auditorium Wednesday. Father O'Donnell
was the principal speaker of the evening'.
'St. Patrick redeemed the Irish people
from the appalling darkness of pagan
Ism," he aald. "Christ gave a vision of
heaven to the world, and Bt. Patrick cava
tl at vision to the Irish."
The speaker then briefly reviewed the
early history of St Patrick, kidnaped at
his home on the coast of Gaul by wild
Irish warrior that plundered along the
coast of what Is now France, torn from
the arms of his mother and carried by
these Irish warriors to Ireland, sold Into
slavery. He reviewed his life a a
shepherd under his cruel Irish master.
where on the hills with his sheep he had
leisure to gaze Into the heavens, com
mune with Ood and dream his great
dream. He followed his course ba:k Into
Gaul when he was released, and the men
tal anguish he suffered as ha thought ot
tha heathen Irish, fettered by the chains
of the idolatrous Druids. Ha followed
the young saint as he plunged back into
Ireland determined to carry to the Irish
people the message of Christ.
That this was a particularly hard task
undertaken by the young saint wa
pointed out by the speaker. He pointed
to the fact that the Irish than were a
wild, unruly body ot men, who had heard
from the Druids that a prophet waa to
appear among them and had determined
to resist him.
"But alone, unarmed, with nothing to
defend him but his faith, ho went among
these people and converted them," said
the speaker, "so that goon churches be
gan to arise" and In a few years the
mountains rang with church bells, and
Ireland was redeemed."

CHICAGO GRAIN AND PROVISION'S
Featores of the Trading and Cloalag
Prices on Board ot Trade.
CHICAGO., March 18 Assertions that
Immense export sales of flour had been
made, chiefly to go to Italy, helped to
give the wheat market today a decided
upturn. There was an unsettled close at
net advance. Corn finished Ho to
fcOc up, oats raised lr!Hc and provi
sions with a gain of 6c to Mu22fa
Purchasing of flour within the last few
days to meet transatlantic demand was
said to have amounted to as much as
(100,0 ) barrels. Chicago, Duluth and
Kansas Citv were declared tu have all
hud a share in the business. In this con
nection, reports were current that a long
string of overdue westbound ocean
steamers were arriving and there would
be unusually heavy clearances of bread-
stuffs from Atlantic and gulf ports In the
next ten aays.
Advices that Germans had been noti
fied to leave Italy without delay tended
to confirm the gossip regarding huge
sales of flour, but the implied prospect
tnut Italy waa aoout 10 laxe a nana In
the war failed to Impress traders gen
erally as being altogether of bullish na
ture as. an influence on the price ot
wheat. ?om selling was Indulged In at
times on the theory that the logical result
of such action by Italy would be to
shorten the war. Most ot the while, how
ever, irices were on the upgrade. Im
proved shipping inquiry In western and
southwestern markets put some firmness
into corn. Business here, though, was of
a local character. Exporters and shorts
lifted oats. Call from the seaboard con
tinued til-Kent with foreigners said to be
paying the highest prices and the highest
vexsei rates yet.
Provisions went.upwsrd because of the
sdvance of grain and hogs. On the bulge,
however, packers who at first had buyers
seemed to have turned to the selling side.

back and almost double the .run of a

with the result that the trade opened
slew and dull, with bltls anywhere from
weak to as much as ldo lower than yes
The market did not Improve any as tna

Feeders did not slow much change to
day and they are. In fact, not far from
steady, with last week's close so far as
the better grades are concerned. Less de

perhaps a little lower.

raise his hand, and as a result of his
bearlshness, (hare were still some fifteen
