Then he knew that it was for the soul of the Holy Bishop that the angels had come to earth. A few days later, the shepherd had made up his mind to go to the mon- astery at Mailros and ask Eata to train him as a monk. But Eats wished to prove the lad, and as these were rough times in the Border counties he sent Cuthbert away to serve Go as a soldier until more peaceful days dawned. Then he might return to dwell in the monastery if he willed. So Cuthbert rode away to seek his the many vegetables and fruits which should be your food during the hot days of July and August?

Father Tynin, Diocesan direc- tor of the Laymen's Council, spent Sunday, July 10, at Osceola and Blytheville in behalf of the Council. On account of threatened rain, the en- tire congregation at Osceola was not present, however, those present, .about forty in number, were enrolled into the Council. The same excuse must be made for the small number which had congregated in the church at Blytheville. Here about fifty were enrolled. Father Tynin's explanation of the work was explicit to the point, so that every one here may be well aware of the necessity of the Council and the good that would be derived from it. At Oeeola the officers were Mr. Jack Sehnan, and Mrs. A. G. Brickey. At Blytheville, the oficers elected were Miss Helen Taschner, Miss Ela- nora Shanks, and Miss Ella Roeder. All to whom these officers are known are able to conclude that the Organi. zation in this part of the state is in capable hands, and therefore, success m assured us. We hope that within not many months we shall have an en- rolhnent of 100 per cent. Father Butterbach will undertake to promote the good cause at Hufman in case Father Tynin sees it impossible to make the trip. Jonesboro, Ark.
