It is strange to think that this intimate associate of Thomas Davis did not catch one spark of the fire of patriotism that burned within the breast of that devoted son of Ireland; that none of John Mitchell's deter- mination of purpose and opposition to everything politically British could find a place in his character.

On May 15, 1778, he became a secretary to Washington and his rela- tions with the latter continued through life to be those of trusted friend and adviser. Parnell rose to call attention to the maladministration of the criminal law in Ireland, and more especially of certain provisions of the Crimes Prevention Act during the viceroyalty of Earl Spencer, whereby persons had in some cases been condemned to death and executed, and in others sentenced to penal servitude for life or for long terms of years, which sentences were then in operation, and to move that in the opinion of the House it is the duty of the Government to institute strict inquiry into the evidence and convictions in the Maamtrasna, Barbavilla, Crossma- glen, and Castleisland cases, the case of the brothers Delahunty, and generally all cases in which witnesses examined in the trials now declared that they committed perjury, or in which proof of the innocence of the accused is tendered by credible persons, and such inquiries with a view to the full discovery of truth and the relief of innocent persons should be held in the manner most favorable to the reception of all available evidence.

Do not be afraid of a toothbrush and toothpaste. It is said that the superior beings who look down upon this world pity the silly struggles and strivings which mortals engage in for either a worthless object or some momentary pleasure.
