Some facts oI the recent elections in Ireland and Great Britain ftrnish a remarlable commenta T on the hargo ttmt Irish Catholics are intol- erant and would persecute Protestants under Homo Rule. In Great Britain of 567 members elected to the House of Commons, only 8 are Catholics, whH.e in reland of 84 mambers elect- ed in Catholic districts 9 are Protest- ants. One of those 9 Protestants, Mr. J. G. Swift :Mac Neill, writing to the papers in refutation of the charge against Catholics, emphasizes his own experience, noting in particular a let- ter by a Protestant clergyman, Dr. Hanson, in which much stress was laid on tile old bogey of "Romish typran- ny." Mr. :Mac Nei.ll says: Dr. Hanson's fear of "Romlsh ty- ranny," in which he desires English Protestants to participate, in the event of the establishment of Home Rul% if I may say so in all courtesy to an od acquaintance, is unworthy of him. Taylor, a Protestant writer, in ?sis "Ifistory of the Civil W.ars of Ire- land," says in reference to Irish Cath- olics: "It is but justice to this ma- ligned body to add that on the three occasions of their obtaining the up- per hand they never injured a single person in life or limb for profesNng a religion different to their own. They ha4 suffered persecution and learned mercy, as they showed in the reign of Mary, in the wars from 1641 te 1648, and during bhe brief triumps of James II."

THE TACTFUL SHOPMAN. :From the Detroit Free Press. "Let me see some of your black kid gloves," said a lady to a shopman. "These are not the latest style, are they," she asked, when the gloves were produced. "Yes, madam," replied the shopman; 'we have had them in stock only two days. ' ' "I didn't think they were, because the fashion paper says black kids have ;an stitches and vice versa. I see the an stitches, but not the vice vrsa." The shopman explained that vice ver- sa was French for seven buttons, so she bought three pairs. Patronize Seuthern Guardian Adver- tisers.

Death of a Baroness yon Mousobach Removes One of Tentative Settlers Who Settled in Texas. San Antonio, Tex.--With the recent death of the Baroness Agnes yon :Meusebaeh at Llano passes one of the most interesting figures of early Texas. :Mrs. Agnes :M:eusebach, as she preferred to be known in later years, was the wife ef Baron yon :Meusebach, who, to- gether with Prince Von Sehns, came to southwest Texas about 1845 with tile alleged intention of founding there a German republic or monarchy. Largo numbers of German farmers were brought over and tile country immedi- ately te the northwest of this city was selected by hem for settlement At New Braunfels some sort of a central government was stablished. Prince Solms built a castle there and a small army was organized along German mili- tary principles. Later on .Frederich- burg was founded as an outpost against the Indians. Although suffering heav- ily now and then from the raids of the Comanches, tile settlers prospered, and for many year s the part settled by them was the only fro'ruing district of southwest Texas. No practical attempt seems to have ever been made by the settlers to carry out their political scheme, this perhaps due to the fact that the infcasibility of the undertak- ing must have impressed the level- headed Teutens. While a coup d'etat against the republic of Texas might have shown some possibility of suc- cess, the assimilation of that country' by the United States eliminated all hope of carrying out whatever plans there had been made. Shortly after- ward the pro'ties in Germany who were interested in he enterprise withdrew their support and Prince von Sohns returned to his vast estates in Thu- ringia, Germany. Baron yon :Meuse- bach, however, remalnod and most of his descendants live in these parts to- day. It has never been possible to prove that the settlers harbored the ambition ascribed to them generally. Their offspring has succeeded, however, in making themselves proverbial in Texas as men of industry and absolute honesty and citizens of the very best type. Baroness Agnes yon :Meusebach was bern at Innsbruck Tyrol, Austria, where her father, Count Ceroth, was the owner of very largo estates. Count Ccroth, her grandfather, lost his lifo in tho battle of Austerlitz. :Mrs. :Meusebach's father had the distinction of being raised in the family of Em- peror Francis of Ausfria.
