(Matt. XIX.-29). Such was the text of a very touch- ing eulogium spoken by Reverend PAGE THRE]. pathy filled her heart where Charity reigned and dominated alq other im- pulses. Throughout her religious life she retained the simplicity and docili- ty of a novice, which, in one of her age and standing in the Community was at once charming and remarkable. All who knew Mother Josephine loved her--loved her for her frankness and sincerity. Beautiful Death as Life Although she had been confined to her room for some time, her death came as a shock. Wednesday morn- in, she was up for Mass and Holy Father H. H. Wernke at the funeral Communion and the other Communi- services of Mother M. Josephine on ty exercises.

In the sanctuary were Reverend Fa- thers G. H. McDermott, A. E. Fletch- er, Flaherty and Martin. A profusion of floral offerings attested the devo- tion of friends and relatives. After the Mass the remains were taken *co Cal- vary cemetery for interment. One of Foundresses Mother M. Josephine was one of the foundresses of the Sisters of Mercy in Arkansas. She was born in Dublin in 1837 and as a young girl came to America with her family who settled in Indiana. After the death of her parents she saw the way to realize her desire to follow in the footsteps of her two older sisters who had "al- ready entered the religious life. Like or to the first Bishop of the Diocese of Little Rock, already has a the disciples of old, she had heard the credit deposit of $1,225.00.

But difficulties serve only to Bishop Bye Burse credits to date: strengthen the determination of an earnest, sincere character such as Mo- ther Josephine was. So--when the first steamer came down the Missis- I sippi and landed at Helena, she was one of its passengers. Here she en- tered the Novitiate of the Sisters of Mercy and later made her holy Pro- fession, the Very Reverend Patrick O'Reilly receiving her vows. Thus, we see that with her, as with many another chosen soul, the following of the Master's call led through difficul- ties and trials, and we are more than ever convinced of the truth of the saying that "All things worth while are hard."

Her death was beautiful as was her life, coming as it did while the Forty Hours Devotion was being held in the Convent Chapel, and occurring on Wednesday, the day of the week con- secrated to St. Joseph, her special patron, and the patron of a happy death. She was buried on a beauti- ful feast, the Feast of the Sacred Heart,--and thus was fulfilled the promise of ohr Lord----contained in the words, quoted by Father Wernke at her funeral. Truly she had borne the burden and the heat of the day, laboring for souls in the vineyard of the Lord and has gone to receive His blessing and His reward.
