WHERE 18 TIPPERARY?

It is related thst Cromwell once
stood on a hill top in Erin and sur
veyed th* imtl.ng expanse of fertile
plain that unfolded before his eyes.
"Th*1 i» • land worth fighting for!"
he exclaimed. He was gaaing at ths
golden vale—the heart of Tipperary.
Tipperary today is a region as
beautiful as 1U people are hospitable
■nd kindly; a peaceful region quietly
iroeporous, a people proud of their
history and their relics of the golden
age of Cashel of the Kings. It ia a
region whose story is interwoven
with the most glorious and the most
--—wi inui miiorj.
It la a region bright with color and
vivid with romance.
A word about the Tipperary of to
day. There ie Tipperary, the county
and Tipperary the gamaon town.
No matter which of the two the rimr
atcr had in mind when he made hit
■ong, Tipperary town U described ai
• "alow" sort of a place, which never
recovered from the "kick up" in the
Irish party after Pamall'i death
but more of this later. Tipperary
comity is 10 the Irish province of
Munster, and is tha sixth largest
county In Ireland, having 1,06U>63
of past bog, meadow, Held and
mountain. It U a
the Knockctnaldwon mountains, and
nortli of them the erild Cal trues. Gal-1
lymore, the highest of them, lifts Its
ancient bend over 3,000 feet In the
elr. On the oast are the Slicve-Ar
ilegh hills, and near the town of Tera
plcmors the storied Devil's Bit Moon.1
tains. The Suir is Tipperary's big
gest river. It takes iu rise in tha
Devil's Bit, and flows southward and
eastward, by the historic towns oi
Tsarplsmore, Thnries, Cashel and
Clonmel. The River Shannon, the
posts' own river, washes the border
of the county.
Tipperary of this modem dey is
one of the host agricultural district,
in Ireland. From Cashel to Lime
rick, right in the midst of Tipperary,
stretches the golden vale, the moat
fertile valley in all Erin. Tipperary
ie given mostly to agriculture and
dairying. There are some ancient
lead mines, whose ores hold a trace
of silver, but they engage a small
portion of tho populace. Large meal
and flour min. arc scattered, over the
country, and the town of Tipp.rary
comes second only to the city of York
il 1 butt Hr miriiM
The town of Tipperary ii very an
rtent. King John built a castle there
aa far back aa th« thirteenth century
and on* of the landmark! of tho plar*
i« an old gate house which belonged
io an Augustinian monastery found
ed by Henry 111. One of th* show
place* of the town ia th* barracks
both by the Kngliah government,
about which it seems that th# govern
ment architects war* simultaneously
planning a barracks for Tipperary
end a barracks for Hong Kong China.
Both seta of plans srera drawn up
and forwarded to their destinations
By some blander the Tipperary plans
went to Hong Kong and the Hong
Kong plans went to Tipperary. No

of tho builder* was complete. So it
happens that a (In* piece of Anglo
