To the present generation the name
of Mary Duff is known only by tradition.
and by Moore's poem, says toward no
in The Ladies' Home JournaL Yet her
career reads like a romance. It was in
London that she was born, in 1 (84. Her
christened name was Mary Ann Dyke-
When she was scarcely 15, she waa
known far and wide as one of the most
heantifnl eiris of the neighborhood. Her
poverty led her to adopt the stage as a
profession, and sue and ner two me

singular grace, comeliness of face and
person attracted immediate anenuou

sisters appeared, the theater would be
thronged. And Mary seemed to do inn
favorite of the trio.
T was the fashion of the time at Kil
kenny for gentleman amateurs to give
annual public performances for the ben
efit of the poor of the city, and it waa
on one of these occasions, when the as
sistance of professional ladies from Dub

the Irish poet, was introduced to Mary
Dyke and immediately round mmseu

The Irish poet became Mary Dyke'a

some reason, the beautiful Mary did not
reciprocate the wealth of affection thus

was this which led Moore to return to
his room, and in the midnight hour pen
his celebrated love song, beginning
"Mary, I believed thee true."

In October, 1886, a religiously mind
ed Buckinghamshire farmer named Jen

church to be christened, and this was to
be the name : Abel Benjamin Caleb Dan

It will be observed that the names
are all arranged in alphabetical order
and are, as far as possible, selected from
Scripture. It was only with the very
greatest difficulty that the clergyman
dissuaded Mr. Jenkins from doing the
lasting wrong to his child that he had
unwittingly devised, but eventually it
was decided to christen the boy simply
Abel. Chambers' JournaL
The Shakers had their peculiar desig
nation given to them in derision. Dur
ing the religious excitements which
were encouraged by their form of wor
ship, members of this sect often fell in
to convulsive tremblings, sometime
ending in partial or total unconscious
ness, and this singular phenomenon gave
a name to the sect.
