St. Patrick left these at the Field Museum

From the American Memory Collection of The Chicago Daily News.

The archive description reads: "Four Irish relics related to St. Patrick on a table in the Field Museum in the Loop community area in Chicago, Illinois. 1907."

He probably put them in the coat check while he was looking at the dinosaurs, and then, when he got back to Ireland, he found the stub in his wallet and went, "Oh, jeez."

Found a few relics of St. Patrick's Day on sidewalks around the neighborhood. They were small, colorful, metal cylinders containing residue of a "stupifying potion". St. Patrick would have been appalled at such behavior in his name.
