t 1-ALOONA (low*) ADVANCI MONDAY, MARCH 14, 1*66 ; «aeeaaaeaeaeaoeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee*eeeeeeeaeeeeeae* "INK in my VEINS" §Y MARIAN INMAN «rt ••••••••••••«*•••••••••« Irvington 6y Mat a •t ,MMooee«*iaeeeee*eeeeeeeeoeeeeeeeeeeeaeaeeeeee«e St. Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland, has been honored from early times. Himself the patron saint of Ireland, for- ever associated with the shamrock and the wearin' of the green, •" it's a typical Irish twist that St. Patrick, was no son of Erin. He was born in Scotland. Nevertheless St. Patrick's day is the day Ho mbwfthe jftlh horn and the Irish themselves are the first to ' be tHanlmirtfdr the^aint who was not an Irishman and yet was the best Irishman of them all. I H*fe U a bit of verse from Samuel Lover's, The Birth | of St. Patrick. •-• » - - : i "On the Ith day of Marth it was, some people say I That St. Patrick at midnight ho first saw the day. f While other declare 'twas the 9th he was born ... f Till Pather Mulcahy, who showed them their sins, j Said, 'No one could have two birthdays but a twins/ > Says he, 'leys, don't be fightln' for 8 or for 9, | Don't bo always dividin', but sometimes combine; * Combine I and 9 and 17 is the mark,. ; So let that bo his birthday.' 'Amen/ says the clerk." ' i. .' 1 - • .! V .."«'' ''.._-• ' | Despite the verse printed just above, the date we celei- jbrate marks not the birth but the death of St. Patrick, in 493. ' . Man who want to live long: should go to Ireland, for | thjlt Is.tha only country in the world where men live longer V than wonion. In evary other country females have a longer ! expectancy of life than mal^s. j V i Havenjt y^u; 1 often wondered how countries received ; their names? Behind most names there is a romantic and in- Herestin'g story. .Sometimes these stories have been lost and 1 forgotten,-while in other cases students have been able to trace , the origin of the name back to its very beginning. For instance, KtaKe the niiinTe of Ireland. This name properly should be Erin- land, derived from the Phoenician word hibernia, which means ^farthest habitation. Several .centuries before the Christian era ^thePhoeriiciiBnfWfBre great seamen. They voyaged as far as Ireland,.and believing this to be the most western land they ; gave it its name, meaning farthest land, or, as it is today, Ire- j,land. :,' .;''';?;.;:•:•_;• :" ' 1 Many traditions have grown up about the life of St. ;• Patrick. Or* relates to the expulsion of the snakes from Ire- v? land., Now this story is widely debated for its veracity but : be that as it may, there are no snakes in Ireland. ', ; •' .'•>". .• n '. . V-,.-' • .,'. • "*," • ; ^ .My good 'friend Ella Bernhard gave me a green clover ^.pin several years ago. I wear it proudly as the daughter of my Irish, father;,Michael Sheridan, who always wore a green necktie on St. Patrick's d|y, £. Everyone, as ho journeys through life, gets grains of "' sand in his shoes. To a mother, these grains of sand may Well be the •mall things which she is forced to do by others of the housohld who leave their clothes hying about for her to pick up, or they may be unexpected company at mealtime. If one is a father, his irritations may be caused by Jun: ipr, who wants'the: : car for a pleasure trip when father needs "the'car for''business.; It may be that he becomes annoyed when his wife asks him to help with some house cleaning just when he is busily planning a fishing trip Dentists and doctors got sand in their shoes when some Himpojrtanf'fooling patients rush into the office expecting to .Jreceiva attention without waiting their turn. Many and ...varied are the grains of sand encountered by "*'irtl.\ Some of-these irritations we cannot change, but there is something each individual can do to make the grains of sand in his shoes'more bearable. '- ; •_ Consideration and understanding stand high on the list of equalities which can make the irritations more bear•able. Consideration on the part of the traveler and his fellow ./•./man. •:'-.;.''•'•'•,"-.''' " ; ; " : . : ; ... .Persons making the journey without faith, courage, understanding and consideration are like persons walking upon a sandy beach ( with,, open-toed shoes or merely sandals. They invite sand in their shoes. It is true that the longer one travels, the better/one understands where one is most likely to find grains of sand, and the more effective he becomes in soothing down the grains of sand which he cannot completely avoid. Stop and think. Instead of deliberately casting grains of sand in anyone else's path, try harder to smooth down the ; grains he is bound to encounter. 0e considerate. Be understanding. '':..' ; v ••".-. As a tribute to our youth read Mary Hannah Krout's poem, "Little Brown Hands." Here are the last two verses. "Those who toil bravely are strongest; ? This humble and poor become great; And so from these brown-handed children Shall grow mighty rulers qf state, .; The pen of the author and statesman I ' The noble and wise of the land ' , the sword, and the chisel, and pallette r Shall be held in the little brown hand."
