P. H. Boyle, the eloquent pastor of St. Edward's, Texarkana, enlight- ened and delighted his congregation with a series of most effective and interesting instructions on ecclesiastical authority. The discourse on episcopal authority was particularly cogent and instructive. In referring to his Lordship's recent pastoral he said they are bard signs of the times when our prelates are forced to appeal to their people for a proper recognition of their God-given authority. Did the people fully ap- preciate their position in regard to their chiep pastor, such an appeal would be unnecessary. For in recognizing in the episcopate the succession and con- tinuance of the apostolate they would readily realize that the bishops of the hour are the apostles of our er, since: they stand in exactly the same relation i to their people as did Jhmes, the Less- er, to the flock at Jerusalem, St. Paul to the Corinthians. The injunction of Christ to his apostles to shake the dust from their feet in testimony against those who would not receive them, with the threat of a more len- ient verdict for Sodom and Gomorrah on the very day of judgment than for such ungrateful people, was so vividly depicted that a hush of awe spread over the entie audience. The symbolic signification of the crozier and ring, the insignia of epis- copal jurisdiction and authority, was clearly set forth, and the prescribed homage of kissing the episcopal ring forcibly impressed upon the hearers. The ladies of St. incent's Aid at their last meeting planned a series of small entertainments called the "mer- ry-go-round," for the purpose .of sup- plying the deficit in their annual ex- pense. The first hostess asks ten la- dies to bring a stipulated sum each i in turn inviting ten others, contribut- ing indefinitely. With the interest of numbers a nice sum may in this way be obtained. The President. of the Aid, Mrs. R. E. Farrell, entertained the ini- tial ten at her home most hospitably on Tuesday afternoon. Tuesday at 10 o'clock a solemn req- uiem mass was celebrated in the ca- thedral for the repose of the soul or Roy. Dennis O'Hearne, who died last week in Rochester, N. Y., after an ill- ness of years. Father O'Hearn was former president of Little Rock Col- lege and is held in beloved memory by those who knew him. Bey. Herbert Heagner, the present president of the college, served as celebrant and Fath- ers Shanahan and Aretz as deacon and subdeacon. The Arkansas Retail Hardware As- sociation held its twelfth annual con- vention in Little Rock Monday and Tuesday of this week. Mayor-elect Chas. E. Taylor, who far years was president of the association, on behalf of the Chamber of Commerce wel- comed them in fitting remarks that signified .a common interest. r. It. L. Remmel, on behalf of the Board ot Trade, dwelt upon the actual and po- tential growth of the state. He drew attention to the fact that "of the 53 exhibits, 14 states, and of the 100 advertisers, 21 states were represent- ed, sufficient proof that the possibili- ties of Arkansas are becoming widely known. W. A. Jackson of Dardanelle was elected president and J. Haralson. of Augusta vice president. A main feature was the question box, from which varied information upon indus- trial topics was given. The State As- sociation was followed by the National Retail Hardware Association, which convened on Wednesday, its first meet- ing in the South. There were about , i I It[ H / .... 500 delegates, including the president, H. L. McNamara, of Janesville, Wls., and Secretary M. L. Corey of Argus, Ind. Governor George W. Donaghey in behalf of the state, and Acting Mayor John S. Odom, in behalf of th city, delivered the addresses of welcome. The exhibits were well worth the time and study of visitors, ranging from tim Dalton adding, listing and calcu- lating machines of immense value tn the business world, to the manufac- ture ad use of earborundrum, which is replacing emery for abrasive pur- poses and fire clay for a refractory material, and which has become of great value to gem cutters. These ex- hibits ranged from the planter, plow and most improved automobiles to the domestic side of life in aluminum kitchen utensils and percolator dem- onstrations. Aside from their educa- tional value all were practical, minim- izing as they do physical energy, which: is the demand of the age. LITTLE ROCK--This city has made more important improvement the past l three years than in all her previous history, especially in reference to street and sidewalk pavements, which neces- sarily imply grading, curbing and other accompaniments. The Confederate re- union ext month may be thanked for the extraordinary activity that is man- ifested everywhere in the city, not only in fundamental things like streets and sidewalks, but also in the beautifying of everything artistically. The beauty spots along Capitol avenue and the foreground of the capitol itself shows the work of the landscape artist and will be one of the factors to attest to the eye of the thousands of visitors who come that Lit.tie Rock is certainly entitled to be called the City of Roses. If we had a Confederate reunion every year for a while Little Rock would become the most beautiful and attrac- tive city in the world. PUBLIC STENOGRAPHER.

HOW ARKAISAS WAS SAVED TO THE NATION And while we think of it--several years ago, on a visit to New Orleans to study her famous battlefield, we pub- lished a statement in regard to that great battle: We spoke of ving een in he Howard library a published in- terview wlt.h Governor William All.on of Ohio, in effect that General Jackson had, during his lifetime, told Governor Allen that instead of the battle being a useless shedding of blood, since peace had Mready been declared, it really saved to us the Louisiana Purchase writes John Trotwood Moore. We find upon investigation that the intervi.ev was taken by David Buell, the historian and au.thor of a new Life of Jackson --one of the best of them--and we find he has embodied in it his "Life of An- drew Jackson." We quote from it as follows: "In the fall df 1875 the author, then a staff correspondent of the Missouri Republican, visited Governor William Allen of Ohio at his farm near Chilli- cothe. During the visi,t, which was of three days' duration, the veneraMe statesman's conversation--wben not upon agricultural subjects--"was nainly I reminiscences of is earliest public life. All was interesting; some of it historic- ally valuable, particularly those parts relating to the British invasion of Lou- isiana and the Northwest boundary questionwhieh latter topic may be !brought forward its its appropriate place.

TELEPHONE 576 II "What Governor Allen said on he former subject we reproduce here, ex- actly it was prin,ted in 1875: " 'Near the end of General Jack- son's second administration, and short- ly after the admission of Arkansas to the Union, I, being senator-elect from Ohio, went to Washington to take the seat on Marh 4. " 'General Jackson--he always pre- ferred to be caled General rather than Mr. President, and so we always addressed him by his miliary title--- General Jackson invited me to lunch with trim. No sooner were we seated than he said: "Mr. Allen, let us take a little drink to the new star in the fiag--Arkansasl " This ceremony being duly observed, the general said: "Allen, if there had been disaster instead of victo T at New Orleans, there never would .have been a Stae of ArRan- sas. ' ' " 'This, of course, interested me, and I asked, ."Why do you say that, general ? ' ' " 'Then he said that if Pakenhan had taken New Orleans, he British would have claimed and hMd the whole Louisiana Purchase. But I said: "You know, General Jackson, that the treaty of Crhent, which had been signed fif- teen days before the battle, provided for restoration of all territory, places and possessions aken by either nation from tile other during the war, with certain unimportant exceptions.' " 'Yes, of course,' he replied. 'But the minutes of the conference at Ghent as kept by Mr. Galls,in represent the British commissioners as declaring in exact words: " 'We do not admit Bonaparte's cons,me,ion of the law of nations. We cannot accept it in relation to any subject-matter before us.' " 'At that moment,' pursued General Jackson, 'none of our commissioners knew what the real eaning of these words was. When they were uttered the British commissioners did not know it. Now, since I have bern chief mag- istrate, I .have learned from diplomatic sources of he most unquestionable au- thority that the British ministry did not intend the treaty of Ghent to ap- ply to the Louisiana Purchase at all. The whole corporation of them from 1803 to 1815--Pitt, the Duke of Port - lnd, Grenville, Perce*al, Lord Liver- pool and Castlereagh, denied the legal right of Napoleon to sell Louisiana to us, .and hey held, therefore, chat we l had no right to th,a territory. So you see, Allen, that the words of r. Goal- burn on behalf of the British commis- sioners, which I have quoted to you from Albert Gallatin's minutes of the conference, had a far deeper sifinifl- canoe fhan our commissioners could pen, etrate. hose words were mean,t to lay the foundation for a Maim on the Louisiarm Purchase entirely external to the provisions of th.e treaty of Ghent. And in that way th,e British govern- met was signing a treaty with one ,hand in front while ith the other hand behind its back was dispatching Pack- enha.m's army to seize the fairest of our possessions. ' " 'You can also see, my dear Wil- liam,' said tlm old general, waxing warm (having once or twice during the luncheon toasted he new star), 'you can also see what an awful mess such a si,tuation would have been if ,.he Brit- ish program ,had been carried out in full. Bu Providence willed otherwise. All the tangled web that the cunning of English diplomacy could weave around our unsuspecting commissioners at Ghen was torn to pieces and soaked with British blood in h.alf an hour at lew Orleans by the never-missing rifles of my Tennessee and Kentucky pio- nevs. And tha ended it. British di- plomacy could do wonders, but it could not provide against such a contingency as that. The British commissioners could thrn sand in the eyes of ours at Ghent, but they couldn't belp the cold lead that my riflemen sprinkled in the faces of their soldiers at New Orleans. iXTow, Allen, you h.ave the whole story, low you know why Ar- kansas was saved at ew Orleans. Let's take another little one. '" This puts history in a new light. HOW ELIZABETH SHUT THE SCHOOLS. Roy. Thee. McMillan, C. S. P., in ew York Freeman's Journal. For some time past it has been re- arded as permissible for High Church Anglicans to use their right of private .udgment in condemning he legisla- tion of Henry VIIL and his daughter Elizabeth by which the Church of England became subject to' the dicta-i tion of the civil power. Their loyalty to the reigning sovereign of England is never brought into question because of their censure of royal malefactors in bygone days. Gladstone's famous oration when introdusing his Homo Rule bill was in direct opposition to the teaching given him in childhood, and during his brilliant career at Ox- ford. He rose superior to the .heritage of hatred for the Irish, which still l elouds the vision of many otherwise fair-minded Britons, even among Cath- olic members of the Tory party. W,hen Gladstone urged the British Parliament to concede home rule .he voiced he long-suppressed convictions of the ex- iled princes who were denied the right to live as freemen in their native land, It seems like the irony of fate, or better still, a peculiar dispensation of Providenc'e, tlmt Dr. Douglas Hyde, though identified with the Protestant Ascendency which banished the school- masters, should have brought to light the religious "Songs of Connaeht." These songs in Gaelic were the re.em- ery gems whispered by the dying lips o2 martyrs for the fith, and transmit- ted from generation to generation en- I shrined in the hearts of the people, un- able to get .access to the wrltten page of their ancient literature. A similar work has been undertaken by another non-Catholic, lfrs. Alice Stopford Green, in her volume called "The. Making of Ireland," published by Maemillan Co. (second edition, 1909). The period--chosen for her critical investigation extends from the year 1200 to 1600, and her oplous bib- liography shows a vast amount of orig- inal researh. With confidence she ap- peals to the ancien documents in sup- port of her assertion that the people of Ireland have been in their subju- gation debarred from the very sources of learning, and from the records of their civilization before tile immense destruction of the Tudor wars. She re- jects as untrustworthy nearly all the modern English versions of Irish his- tory. English historians are urged o display a spirit of long-delayed justice by making new text-books for their schools and universities. In the follow- ing strong words she presents a demand for the scientific study of Irish I history:   __ Snodgrass & Bracy Enthusiastic Over[ the Success of Honest ohn Truss.

Little Rock, Arkansas TI-IE BELLS OF IRELAND. Hark, list to the bells in the Land of the Shamrock; What news on the breeze do they bring us today From Dublin to Blarney, from Cork to Killarney, They ring with a triumph that none can gainsay. O'er heather-clad mountains, o'er sil- very fountains, O'er rivers once red wih the blood of the Dane, O'er heaven kissing hills, o'er sweet- smiling farms O'er cot and o'er palace the sound is the same. The robin may sing to that beautiful chiming, The lark to that sounding may tune "I, its song; The wild goose may chirp to the march of that rhyming, And the cuckoo those echoes may help to prolong; But the ",ingling of Calvin, the clanging of Henry, The banging of Luther and his bung- ling of lies, The dancing and prancing of proud Queen Elizabeth, With those sweet Irish bells could ne'er harmonize. That sound that went forth .long ago from those abbeys, Where the moss and the ivy now fond- ly entwine, Where the arches are broken, the altar i deserted And the monks in the sleep of their master recline Comes now to our ears from those newly-built temples Which fast by the ruins of the abbeys now stand Telling loud to the world Erln still holds the title "Of scholars and sain that thrice blessed land. Then ring .on, sweet bells in the Land of the Shamrock, That message of peace which St. Pat- rick first bore That message for which the Soggarth of Ireland Gave tlmir lives and their blood in the dark days of yore I Ring on, that the world may feel con- viction The truth of the lesson you've sounded so long, Ring on, and may Heaven in sweet benediction make louder your hime as the ages roll on. --Roy.
