This was told by one of the darkies to the manager, who repaid him with a mess of greens for dinner. Tales Out of School. Bishop Morris always has been a lover of natme and enjoys to visit the farm and see Uhe beattiful green foliage, the green fields ladened with grain and crops that will be so bene- ficial to the Orphanage and to see the well-kept stock in the pink of condi- tion that are doing their bit to keep down the high cost of living by pro- ducing pure milk and butter and fresh eggs for the Sisters and chil- dren. He also enjoys looking over the pens of Poland China and Mule- foot hogs whdch are doing so well this year. One called "Silver," a big beauty, also a great pet and favorite, usually expects a treat in "good eats" when on exhibition and sometimes shows his "hoggish" nature by insist- ing on more. One day the Rt. Rev. Bishop, taking a general look over the stock, remem- bered Silver with an apple. The day turning to be rather warm, he took off his overcoat and hanging it o the fence, went his way. Shortly his Lordship was seen 1,ustily runninp down the hill. George, a slow-footed, rather awkward, heavy-set hired man, followed, clumsily nJnning down the hill Seeqng George run, so amazed were all that investigation began, only to find that "Silver," in search of more apples, grabbed the Bishop's overcoat and ran. Of course, the IBis.hop ran for his coat. George"fob [lowed the Bishop. Silver, so surprised to see George run after him, dropped the coat, which was none the worse but for a few mud stains, was now ca+efu]ly put in the car to avoid fur- i ther exercise. Pleasant Surroundings. The Sisters live in a neat little house of live rooms, a small pantry and linen room. Each bedroom has its clothes' closet. The house antl REV. HERMAN H. WERNKE, barns are equipped with he Delco- Chairman of Orphanage Committee Light System, which adds chatun anti beauty to the convenience of the coun- try home. A new Ford auto was bought so the Sisters can come to town for re- ligious services and business, but the Orphanage Express is stall the boys' own toy and the swellest car in town could not put its nose out of joint. His Lordsip, always solicituous about the Sisters' welfare, made them. a present of a nice rug, two parlor stoves and several ornaments. So our little CounUT Home has a cozy ap- pearance. Boys aml girls change about going to the farm to help take care of the stock, work in the garden anti field. A movie could not have more charm for the "kiddies" than to say, "You may go to the farm." School Traitfing Complete. The education given at St. Joseph's is practical and comprehensive. Par- ticular attention is given to the moral aml religious culture.of te children, but the principal aim of the Sisters is character building. The children arc carefully supervised but are taught self-reliance and to do their duty from higher motives than that of fear of punishment and failure. A family spit'it prevails between the Sisters and the children, which elevates the. student body as it were, morally and intellectually, encompassing greater happiness and contentment. expresses a desire to+live to the age Orphans at School. of :100 years.

Full Equipment. St. Joseph's Orphanage is a well- equipped institution and is successful- ly carrying out the instructions of those who founded it. The necessary n sery for the wee tots, play room anti grounds for the bigger ones, wimming pool and bath ropms, apartments for athletic exercises and rooms for various purposes have been tprovidcd as liberally as space the would permit. The institution is tak- ing care of about its full capacity at present and is always kept in a sani- tary and healthful condition. Chaplain Assigned. The religious exercises in connec- tion with the chapel for the Sisters and the Cat@olic children are under !he supervision of a priest assigned by the Rt. Rev. Bishop. Rev. Thos., Smith, A. B., of Little .Rock College is acting at present. Rhv. Father H. H. Wernke, secre- tary of Bishop Morris and assistant rector of the Cathedral, is one of the untiring workers in behalf of the Orphanage. He is a live wire on all matters or movements intended for the betterment of the institution. The !Rt. Rev. BiShop has placed him in charge of the annual Orphanage pic- nSc for the last four years and he has ben very successful. He has become i popular in this work and ,is known at the Orphanage as "Picnic Father." If you want to see him smile just tell him you are with him and want a job on picnic day. Father Wernke puts vigor in any- thing he does, but he seems to save a soft spot in his hea for the Or- phanage, and there is ]aothing too great for him to undertake if it is for the benefit of the Sisters and the little ones under their charge. Covers Big Scope. The years of 1919-1920 show a wondeul record of good done by St. Joseph's Orphanage. 'lheir records show that one thousand children have[ been sheltered and cared for during I this period and that five old peoplel, are inmates of the institution; the[ oldest being ninety years and the I youngest four days old. The ninety- I year-ohl sings and attempts to shov: how he danced in years gone by, and (Mary Frances), or better known as "l)oll-doll '' rules, while "Mickey" de- clares he is "Tissie's" little man. Fritzie Boy, with a git'lis; face, bu ' a coarse voice, insists that Daddy and Mother are always on a choo-choo train. Ernest Wright, who was very proud to be promoted to the school class, likes his Bible stories very much, also the liltle catechism. His answer to the question, "What do the good Angels do for us?" is as follows: "The 'ood Angels peck us (protect us). pray for us and pump us (prompt us) to do flood." Wonderful Institution. Imteed, St. Joseph's Orp!hanage is a 'wonderful institution; a very wor- thy one that is doing" untold gdod in this community as well as tlaroughout the entire South When Bishop Mor- ris conceived the idea of this g'reat in- stitution, he brought out an influence for the good of everybody. And while. he carried out his plan, amidst the discouragement of man,, both in and out of his church, he nmdc good be- yond all expectations in his foundin in Little Rock of one of its most hu- mane anti practical institutions.
