The judges awarded MOTHER JOSEPHINE, SIXTY YEARS A NUN DIES AT THE CONVENT SISTERS OF MERCY ON MT, ST. MARY AGAIN VISITED BY DEATH--LOSE THE OLDEST MEMBER OF THE COMMUNITY. The brightness and the gladness of the commencement sea- son at St. Mary's Academy and the Convent of the Sisters of Mercy, Pulaski Heights, was changed to a mournful sorrow, when dear old Mother Josephine died at 4:30 o'clock on Wednesday Afternoon, June 6. Death came to her in a imacefui repose after several years of a well-merited rest, self.obligated only by the ailments of her 86 years of life, and after 60 years zealously and most actively spent in lhe service of the Lord, studying, teaching, praying, directing the intellectual and spiritual of tim many young novice who became Sisters of Mercy, as well as the hundreds of parochial and 'academic students who went forth from her class rooms with the distinguishing impress of a thorough education. Some of her years found her at the bedside'of the sick and the injured, the ministering angel of comfort and relief. She experienced the awfulness of war, when the Blue and the Gray found refuge and care under her mothering at convent and hos- pital during the days of civil strife. She in a major measure helped to crown Pulaski Heights with the now famed convent and academy of St. Mary. Mother Josephine was a sister of the late Sister Alphonsus, founder of the Sisters of Mercy in Little Rock. During her long span of community years she carried officially the responsibility of the most prominent posts of duty. In turn she acted as Mother Superior at St. Joseph's Infirmary, Hot Springs, and at Mt. St. Mary's, Little Rock. Mother Josephine Carton was born May 5, 1837, in Dublin, Ireland. She is survived by two brothers, Richard Carton of Earl Park, Ind., and Lawrence Carton of Chicago, and a sister, Mrs. Delinda Boyle, of Ottoway, Ill. Funeral services will be held at St. Mary's Academy chapel with a Solemn Mass of Requiem on Friday morning at 9 o'c ock. Final obsequies will be at the Sister's lot in Calvary Cemetery. R.I.P. 1 TENDER TRIBUTE q To the Late Mother Patricia of the Sisters of Mercy, Mr. St. Mary's Academy by Miss Anna M. Joyce. She had done the work of a true we- mail, Crown her, honor her, love her; Weep over her, tears of woman, For the warmest of hearts is frozen, The freest of hands is stilled, And the gap in our picked and chosen, The long years may not fill. Memory walks with us today, and weaves a chaplet of love and devotion around the life and work of the late lamented Mother Patricia. Memor] bids us think of those blessed years "at are gone, and faith points to a beautiful crown, garlanded in Heav- en, its nms precious flowers being those which she planted in our hearts, the seeds of immortality and he hope of Heaven No more of Time is the gentle Mother Patticia, who was the sun- gI[ine of her Community, ever wreath- ed in smiles, ever at her post bidding a royal welcome to all who entered the portals of Mt. St. Mary's. Profoundly happy in the renuncia- tion of the world and all its pleas- ures, hdr forty years of religious life were years of benediction and frui- tion. wlth the quiet manner was lat- ent strength and with the gracious s]mplicity, was a winsome directness, which won the love and admiration of all who knew her. Affectionate, gear tie, refined, sympathetic with a ing and evening prayers, calling down God's benediction on their young lives. Last, but not least, will she be missed by the members of Mt. St. Mary's Alumnae Association. Would that I were sufficiently gifted to give expression to the grateful feelings of emotion surging deep within our hearts. From a tiny seed planted within tlie walls of Old St. Mary's, 'and spon- sored by Mother Patricia, whose watchword was ever "Onward, U- ward," we have blossomed into a most prosperous organizatio. To imve had the privilege of such unmeasurable care and assistance, it is fitting and right that we should strive and continue in our work, and in our efforts and appreciation plant a flower of gratitude in the meadow of memory. We will all miss our re- unions, but her memory will flow on like the clear current of u melodious stream, whose associations are with the sunshine and the shadows, the song of birds and rippling waters at dewy eve, with all things pure, sweet and exalted 'that unite in that crown- ing glory of Catholic womanheod the Sister of Mercy.

In her community, the place left vacant can not be easily filled. But, with silent resignation, the Sisters bow their heads to the will of God and their prayers and supplications in her behalf are borne on the night wind's breath to the T/rone of the Almighty. The hundreds of young girls, whose happy privilege it has been to spend some years under her blessed in.flu: race, will recall with tenderest rev- erence the many lessons of christian morality interwoven with the instruc- tions in the classes of Science and that this was the only manner of corn- Literature. pleting a divorce in Ireland, as the ]n the school room.'she will be sad- procedure of bringing the matter be- ly missed.

AND DIVORCE SIITS Dublin, June 4.The position of the Irish Free State relative to divorce hs just been raised in Fee State courts. Mrs. Peard of Dublin, plaintiff in a divorce suit, had obtained a prelimi- nary decree against her husband. Pre- viously it has been necessary to have every such decree of an Irish com't ratified by special act in the British House of Lords. In the Peatd case the attorney declared that ratificatibn woulud have to be sought from the Free State Legislature. He alleged Relctant to Grant. This contention has raised the isue of whether marriages can be dissolved in Ireland. It has always been con- trary to Irish jurispudence to' allow divorce cases to be made absolute by any Irish tribunal, and it is thought that the Free State Legislature wId be very ,reluctant to grant such' per- mission. Justice Dodd, Presbyterian, differed from the attorney's view of the mat- ter, and expreed the opinion that the British Parliament can still ratify di. vorces sought by litigants 'domiciled in ireland. )
