The Curragb. of Ireland is Celebrated
in Both Song and Story,

Aeeas Islands, Ibel ax d, Feb. 25.
HEB.E is an old
quatrain among the
Irish peasantry, the
origin of which, for
the spirit ot insistire
prophecy it contains,
might fairly be attrib

genius of one of the
characters to which it
While Ireland is onld Ireland
You'll have forevermore
The bocourh and too oorrag
Beside your cabin door.
The bocough was the wandering minstrel
and story teller of Ireland. He had a keen
scent for every spot where geniality and
generosity flourished; but poverty, oppres
sion and .sorrow have long ago withdrawn
the scant cheer that once gave him place.
The bocough is gone. But the other one,
the corrag, who requires no raiment, food or
housinc, remains within the shadow of-the
Irish cabin door.
Throughout Connemaraand particularly
in mv tramp down from the Pallindoon dis
trictto Cloghmore and the sea, I saw one of
these silent, dried-up old fellows trembling
in the wind by the door of every hut or
icbin I passed. To my fancy each one took
ion a separate individuality and seeming.
This one stood there defiant, as if repellant
of your approach. That one had a saucy
air as if to intimate that a fine "right
blackthorne was concealed about his person.
Another seemed decrepit and weary from
silent vicil out there in the bitter mountain
wind. Another was bent and leaning as
though it could stand no longer. Another
teemed to beckon the passer to enter, or to
hint with weary gesture that you keep upon
your way.
ibeland's ctjbse.
And many, very many, stood bowed and
sadly attentive as if listening in reverent
solemnity to endless tales of want and woe
that come in hopeless tones from the half
starved souls within. The corrag is but a
tall bundle of limbs or oisers, set before the
door to break the hurt of the savage
mountain blasts, "the ould man of the
branches," the peasants call it; but one
sometimes feels that this insensate typified
jprotector of the Irish cabin was the only ob
ject in guise of human that ever got thus
near the man-ueglected, God-Iorsaken
peasantry of this cruelly-wronged land.
A night was passed at old Cloghmore.
During the evening I engaged a boatman
for the journey across the northern sea-arm
of Gal way Bay to the Islands of Arran. The
distance is from 10 to 15 miles, according to
the conscience of the boatman. This one's
was fairly honest, and the distance was but
12 miles.. The fare was to be but 2 shillings
to Killaney Bay, the principal harbor of
great Arran, and but 3 shillings in the
event ot his returning with me. As the

An elegant assortment of Gents' Scarfs,
one day in fair weather, this was humble
compensation indeed. He awakened me
before dawn, as the tide would shortly be
going out, and after a hasty breakfast of
"bannocK-cake,'K eggg and' milk-posset, I
came to the waterside to find my man wait
ing for me in an affair that could hardly be
described as a diminutive wagon hay-rack,
but certainly had no right to the appella
tion of a boat.
"Are we going in this?" I inquired pro
testingly. "Arrahan" we are that, me sundown."
"But, by all the saints, we'll drown."
"Its by thim same" and here he crossed
himself reverently "we'll not Faith an'
'twas the brave currash that carried safe
ivery wan o their blissed selves, God give
them power!"
The curragh as it is, and was, resembles
in form a diminutive square-end scow, with
perpendicular sides, and long angles from
its ends to the square bottom. Some are
made with square sterns and raised square
prows. Others again are similar in shape
to the pecan nut shell, cut in halves length
wise. But they are all made with light
oiseror bent wood frames, covered with
tarred canvas. "While their carrying ca
pacity is usually from 1,000 to 2,000 pounds,
they are still so light that any western
coast boatman will readily pick one up,
with all of its belongings, and carry it away
upon his head.
The ancient curragh,,or coracle was pre
cisely the countepart of the curragh of these
waters to-day, save that it was covered with
rawhides. All coastwise testimony has it
that wonderful feats of seamenship and dar
ing are performed in these curraghs; that
the most savage seas are braved in them,
and that the little craft skim the most dan
gerous serfs like birds ot the air; but I
know nothing of this of my own experience,
for our passage was as calm as upon a land
locked lake in June.
The faint outlines of the Arran Islands
soon came in view. The sunlight from the
east playing upon their misty clouds formed
a strange mirage above. This continued
along the sea's horizon to the north, with
diminishing but magical distinctness. The
splendid scene drew from me an expression
of enthusiastic surprise; and this led to
some interesting revelations of belief which
I find is shared in varying degree and form,
by all the waterside folk of the Irish west
ern coast.
"Yet may well sav there's more nor three
islands (the actual number of the Arran
group). More's like they be 300 1"
"Three hundied? And where are they?"
"Where ?" This with lofty disdain.
""Where! Beyant, there" with a com
prehensive gesture towards the western hori
zon "to be sure." Then, as if to give op
portunity for penitential introspection upon
iny surprising American ienorance, he re
lapsed into a stern and wrinkly-faced
silence. Finally he continued.
"Sure aany one knows thim islands."
""What are they called?" I ventured tim
orously. "Called, is it? An' for phat an' for
"Have they no names? how do you speak
of them among yourselves?"
"Anything's aisy among oursel's."
"But their names? "Now you've a name."
"I have that, bliss God! Conn Leahy,
sor. Sorra a man would be, lackin' that
"But, come now, how would you speak of
these islands, Conn?"
"Wid respect, sor!"
"Thank you, Conn."
I put my notebook away gently, and
gazed at the wondrous mirage, where lay
these isles of Irish superstition. Then there
came a long wrancle, in Celtic, between the
boatman andhis shock-headed lad assistant,
in which I heard the words I wanted. Then
a long silence; and finally a little rest in
Conn's rowing.

"Divil doubt it They're thrue, sor."
"And of course many of you people have
been to these wonderful islands?"
"I'll go bail to that same."
"How do they get back, Conn?"
"Git back? Git back, is it?" For a mo
ment the man seemed dazed a little. But
we were nearing the bleak pier at Killaney.
More than a hundred God-forsaken Arran
Islanders stood listlessly watching our ap
proach. Conn was in the presence-of an au
dience and a deleinma. Who ever knew an
Irishman's powers forsake him then? Giv
ing the old curragh a few leaps in the water
that took us swiftly alongside the pier, Conn
closed the journey and the argument with:

Breen Eegrets the Decadence of
Republican Simplicity at
Eiddlefcerger's Successor a Great Orator
and Story Teller.
K the palace of the Luxem
bourg, in Paris, may be seen
a painting of such greatness
of conception and execution
and so startling and sug
gestive a moral as to make
it a matter of regret that the
whole civilized world could
not at one time or another be
brought to gaze upon and consider it. The
picture is called "The Decadence of Borne."
It represents a Boman carnival a "feast
and flow," participated in by the noble
class of Boman and men and woman under
the Caesars. Thecentralandabsorbingfigure,
more terrible in her youth and wondrous
beauty than any monstrous human copy
could be, is a woman about whom there is
nothing womanly, the soul oi .whom is
burned out by passion, who reels and
sways as she raises the spilled wine to her
If there was not about her other men and
women debased as she by long indulgence
in sensous pleasures, she alone wonld ex
press the decadence of a people and of a
period that could be responsible for such an
orgie. At the right of the picture two ot
the revelers, a man and woman are press
ing wine to the lips of a marble Casar, who
looks down upon them with a gaze of a
stern, condemning Stoic. .
The painting is suggestive in that it is
faithful to the written history of Boman de
cadence, and thatit pictures to themind asno
written history could possibly do, the con
dition of the society of a State or nation
given up almost wholly to the worship of
money of shoddy and sham and
who have lost the Bepublican simplicity
of the elder day, I am not
drawing on .my imagination, but writing
with parsimonious moderation of what "the
eve hath seen," and what is known to'
thousands, when I say that certain features
of the inauguration ball on Monday night,
if reproduced in one of the panels of the
Capitol, would not only indicate a startling de
parture from the republican simplicity ot the
"Old Oaken Bucket" period of our history,
but would viyidly recall sundry "Belshaz
zar" features that prevailed in the gorgeous
money-worshining days in Borne tnat pre
ceded the "Decline and Fall." The ball
was the "sassiety" event of the inaugura
tion, and the big dull red Pension building
was filled to suffocation.
"There was a sound .of revelry by nijht,"
and the sounds were prolonged far into the
auroral hours. The Presidental and Vice
Presidental parties, and Cabinet, and Con
gressmen, and political "what not," were
there to add splendor to a scene that most
people do not witness once in a life
time. It is very doubtful whether such a
modest, unassuming gentleman as President
Harrison, who has never yet worn a frock-
coat, wonld much enjoy such a swallow
tailed gathering, and even the stately Levi,
leader of society, millionaire and "all that,"

seemed to look on the mixed and moving
throng in a disdainful sort of way.
As a splendid spectacular display of dia
monds and bullion, of fashion and frivolity,
of titles and gold lace, and high life a'nd
flotsam," it was, of course, a bewildering
success, which the chroniclers of th day
have not failed, to itemize ad nauseam
errors and omissions," as the bookkeepers
jay, "excepted." There was certain to be
'all sorts in a gathering where a $5-ticket
entitled the holder to all privileges except
lunch, There was a swaying sea of painted
and powdered faces of pinchback and of
nickle-platepeople inseparable perhaps from
such a throng, budding maidens in gorgpous
array, big, fat old "dowagers," stoop-should-,ered
with diamonds, who seemed to say with
all the emphasis of a certified check: "We
have the stuff."
These features might be found in a less
degree even at "Lanigan's Ball." But it is
to yet other and blush-raising features
of this gorgeous gathering of beauty and
fashion at an inauguration ball on the
threshold of the second Centennial of a Re
public founded by such staid, old-fashioned
sticklers for the proprieties, social and other
wise, that 1 might more particularly re
fer, if the details of the topic were Buch as
cannot profitably be discussed in a circum
spect paper.
One of the most notable "inaugurations"
during the inauguration period was that of

with his unfortunate predecessor, Biddle
berger, and during the Confederate days
he was a glowing light in the coterie that
stood by Jeff Davis in the darkest of the
dark and bloody davs of the Rebellion. He
is now thoroughly Reconstructed, and will
undoubtedly make his mark in the Senate.
'His colleague, Senator Daniels, who is a
wit as well as a great orator, tells an
amusing story of Barbour's campaigning in
the ante-bellum days. It appears that after
enjoying the highest honors in his State
and deciding to retire to private life,
he was prevailed upon to, be a can
didate for a petty local office. The opposi
tion trotted out against him an illiterate,
rough-and-tumble politician named Billy
Maples. In accordance with the rnles of
conducting a political campaign in those
days, Barbour had to take the stump with
Maples, but Maples could always Tanauish
him in abusive harangue. The final speech
of the campaign by Maples was abusive be
yond all precedent. Barbour was not a little
nettled, and determined to squelch his oppo
nent, which he did in these words:
Fellow Citizens: When I was a young
man, now nearly 40 years ago, your grandfath
ers sent me as their representative for four
terms to the House of Delegates, and I was
chosen Speaker of that body. At a subsequent
period I was elected twice Governor of Vir
ginia. Afterward 1 represented this renowned
Commonwealth in the United States Senate,
where I was the confidant and perhaps 1 may
say the peer of King, GuiUaid, Pinkney and
Van Buren. John Qnincy Adams conferred
on me a place in his Cabinet, and
for three years 1 shared his counsels
with Clay, West and McLean. I was
then appointed Envoy Extraordinary to the
Court of St. James, when it became my duty to
conduct negotiations with the conqueror of
Napoleon. Judge, then, fellow citizens, oi the
ineffable disgust I feel after such a career and
in my declining years at finding myself to-"

with such ad disagreeable little cuss as

It is hardly necessary to say that Maples
got left Barbour is to-day lithe as an In
dian, gray and grizzled after the combats of
a half century, not mourning for the "Lost
Cause," but he still speaks of Virginia as
"my State" as emphatically as he did when

Fiftieth Congress were burning low. The

were simply awful, and no one could 1ail to

rush and chatter gathered volume towarg)

more silent Senators like Cameron and
more silent, patient workers like Errett.
The members seem to think with Senator
Sumner that the whole business'of life is to

Any sketch of the inauguration scenes
would now be a week "after the fair," but
at least one of the big signs on Pennsylvania
avenue during the big parade made more
than a ripple on the surface, and cansed no
end ot comment among the spectators and
marchers, but I have failed to see any refer
ence to it in print. It is not news to say
that Blaine is a prime favorite in Washing
ton, but one of the most significant among,
the many moist inscriptions along the ave
nue was this, from Perry Corson's House:
This slop-over would satisfy even such a
snarling old hero worshiperas Carlyle; but,
on the other hand, it may not be fair to hold
Blaine responsible for all his fool friends.
The President's inaugural pleased or
seemed to please most people, except the
professional fault-finders. What he might
say abont the tariff, civil service and for
eign relations could have been anticipated
from the tenor of his Senatorial record, but I
was amused and surprised to find a modest
plea for temperance in such a document; and
while it is in perfect harmony with Har
rison's 'practice and profession, it seemed
queer enough as a public utterance when it is
remembered that the National Convention

loads of nose-paint from Milwaukee every

Her Representation of Fedora it Nice De
scribed in the Herald's For
eign News. .
The following appeared in the New York
Herald of February 23:
"Nice, February 22. 18S9. Sarah Bernhardt
has opened a series of performances to-night at
the Nice Municipal Casino. She is play
ing "Fedora" to crowded houses, every
seat being taken, notwithstanding the fact that
the ordinary prices bave been quadrupled. The
audience is highly fashionable. Just in front
of me in the orchestra stalls was the aged fath
er of Victorien Sardou, following adoringly
every, detail of his son's grand work.
"Sarah's magnificent dresses were the admi
ration of everybody. Her powerful represen
tation of Fedora and her display of tragic feel
ing were fully acknowledged by the audience.
She was well supDorted by Pierre Berton as
Loris Ipanoff, and a very strong cast."
Madame Bernhardt has set the fashion on
more articles than any other one woman of her
day. She introduced the, following articles,
which have all been immenselv popular: The
32-button glove, the empire dress, directoire
sash, and the revival of the lone boa, dear to
the hearts of our grandmothers. She has set the
fashion for Theodora hairpins and Tosca bats,
and has, in fact, wielded an influence over the
world of dress beyond that exercised by any
other woman since the days of the Empress
Eugenie, and while she did not introduce those
mentioned in the following letter, yet she has
used them constantly and expresses her opin
ion of them in forcible terms:
'he Hoffman House, April 27, 18S7.
Dear Madam The Recaniier Preparations
are the perfection of toilet articles. Please
send roe withont fail to-moirow tw.o dozen as
sorted for immediate use.
Sarah Bernhardt.
Among the thousands of letters which Mrs.
Ayer has received from ladies who are using
tho Recamier Preparations, perhaps the most
exquisitely dainty one is from Madame Bern
hardt. Mrs. Ayer will be pleased to show it to
an v lady calling at her office, 52 Park place.
French women above all others are said to be
more dainty about their persons, and take
greater care of the charms that nature gives
them than any other women. That the divine
Sarah should have ued the Recamier Prepara
tions proves her good judgment, and shonfd re
mind all women that the most charming leature
is the complexion, that beautiful faces and
hands are above price and can only be secured or
maintained by the use of Harriet HuDbard
AVer's Recamier Preparations; that the woman
whose face is covered with pimples, red spots,
moth patches, blackheads, etc., is a repulsive
object to men as well as to ber fellow women.
These can all be removed and the complexion
preserved in yonthful beauty to old age by
using Recamier Cream according to directions.
Recamier Powder can be used in connection
with it. It is the finest powder made and will
not make the face shine and will not
mb off. Of the 'Recamier Soap, Madame
Fatti wrote Mrs. Ayer: "Recamier Soap Is
perfect. I thought other soaps good, but I had
never tried the Recamier. I shall never use
any other. It far surpasses alt toilet soaps."

Mrs. Harriet Hnbbard Aver:
Dear Madame The Rev. Dr. Rainsfora
has desired me to write and ask you a favor.
Last year you most generously donated a large
quantity of Vita Nuova fortneparish poor. It
has been carefully dispensed and has proved
most beneficial to many.
The last bottle was given a few days ago,
and the favor I am desired to ask is: Would,
you again kindly remember the sick poor by
contributing for their use some more of your
excellent tonic?
With sincere thanks for the benefit you haVa
conferred by your gift, Iremiin. dearmadarae,
yonrs truly, J. E. FORNERET.
Vita Nuova is the best remedy for dyspepsia,
nervousness, sleeplessness and overwork. It
will assist the weak stomach, it will resttha
weary brain, it will "brace up" the shattered
nerves. As it is made from the prescription of
a famous physician, you are not taking a quack
medicine. As it is made by an honest manu
facturer, yon are sure of pure ingredients. As
it is used and indorsed by men and women you,
all know and respect, you are not using an un
known or untried remedy: only be careful to
get the genuine; ref use substitutes.

a bottle of it on hand. I have not felt so well
in years as I dn now, after taking only one bot
tie of it. Yours, verv repectf nil v,
