1;he Davis centenary celebrations are in full swing as I write. The President is attending a great musical function, for which special music has been composed, the Lord Mayor of Dublin is welcoming a big gathering, and the publishers arc selling like hot cakes (I) a massive volume (7s. 6d.) of Dairis's best writings, with centenary memoir and lavish illustrations, and (2) a sixpenny edition of the entire political works of the patriot of 1845—evidence that all classes are equally interested in the event.
Many people were astonished that Davis should stir the country still so strongly after a hundred years, a young poet, whose lifework was done in three years in a newspaper office.
