':' It is under the Sisters of Mercy and its educational opportunities are rec- ognized as being above par by the progressive citizens of Fort Smith. The institution is well patronized from all over the State. Eastern Arkansas. Jonesboro has a fine school; Poca- hontas has a beautiful little school tucked away in the quiet hills, a short walk from the center, of the town. Paragould has a progressive school. In fact we could describe almost a hundred schools supported by the Catholic Church and that are doing good work to educate the future gen- erations of Arkansas. Subiaco College. Subiaco College is situated in a charming, healthful spot of Western Arkansas, six miles south of the Ark- ansas river. Its substantial buildings stand upon a hill which commands a! view over the picturesque and refresh- ing landscape which surrounds the in- stitution. It is a classical and com- mercial college in charge of master- ful educators. The building is a massive structure erected of sand- stone. The main building forms a large square measuring 216 feet on each side, with a wing 40 by 60 ex- tending from the east front. Subiaco is well furnished, is vezT comfortable and conveniently laid out. Its equipment and improvements for educational purposes are modern and the building is fire-proof. They have as fine equipped gymnasium and audi- torium as will be found in the State, with splendid athletio and baseball grounds.

John Baptist Haley & Morris, D. D., under whose influence some of the more important of these institutions were made possible, and some enlarged to meet the require- r--'- meats of public demands. He was born on the 29th day of June, 1866, at Hendersonville, Sumner county, Tennessee.

Morris, who was born in 1825, near Anthcnry, Galway County, Ireland, mnigrated to America. In his early life he made a comfortable livelihood by many successful ventures in the contracting line. In 1863 he settled on a farm near Hendersonville, where he spent the rest of his days. Bishop Morris' mother was a Ken- tuckian by birth, being born at Mun- fordsville, in Hart county. She was i a most zealous Catholic, interesting herself not only in the Catholic hain- ing of her own children, but.also that of her Catholic neighbors; and was loved and revered by all, non-Catholic and Catholic alike. Early Life of Bishop. Of the Bishop's early life and pri- maw education, it is worthy of note that he was tutored by no less distin- guished a person than Capt. Charles S. Douglas, formerly an officer in the Confederate mny. At the age of thirteen, on the 14th day of October, 1879, dawned one of the brightest days in the life of Bishop Morris-his first holy communion day. Tha Bishop Morris was well pre- pared for this happy day is beyond doubt, for he received his instzctions from a learned and devout Jesuit Father, the Rev. Richard Scannell, who, in 1879, was consecrated Bishop of Concordia, and, in 1891, transferred to the See of Omaha, Nebraska, and who was at that time (1879) the rec- tor of St. Mary's Cathedral, at Nash- ville. College Career, 1882-1887. The way of a man's heart will be foreshadowed by whatever gogdness lies in him--coming from above and from around--but a way foreshadow- ed, is not a way made. And the mak- ing of a man's way comes only from that quickening of resolves, which we call ambition. Now, Bishop Morris unquestionably possessed this stead- fast purpose to achieve something in life; he had a definite goal towards which to direct his youthful energies Whether it be the Sisters of Charity or some other Order of the Catholic faith at the head of these institutions, the work of benefiting the general public continues with untiring effort. Strength in Education. In mentioning these valuable in- stitutions we have shown that the Bishop believes that education is the foundation upon which the future generations will build their success. It is the bulwark of good citizenship and he has spared no time or energy to advance every opportunity in edu- cational lines. The big cities in the territory of the Diocese of Little Rock have forged to the front with influen- tial colleges and academies, while the smaller towns begin in a modest way and grow as the countT develops But in each school the same educa- tion is taught by the good Sisters-- Patriotism and Love of Country be- ing part of the educational program, and while the grades are not so nu- merous in the smaller schools, the training and courses cover the same end. In Civic Life. The Rt. Rev. John B. Morris has few spare" moments. The period of which he has been the Bishop of Lit- tle Rock has been one of great devel- opment, botk for the Catholic insti- tutions and the State of Arkansas. Scarcely had he taken over the duties of the office when he saw the need of this development and begun the i work at once. I With his many spiritual duties: Bishop Morris has found sqme time to p devote to ciwc purposes and has i shown an entmprising spirit towards. improvement. He has been the means of improving parts of the city where some wiseacres condemned his judg-i merit, only to find at a later date that the Bishop's progressiveness had not only proved a good investment, but it caused others to follow his example and build up the city. This last year he has done quite some building in the way of enlarging and rebuilding and seldom a year passes that the Bishop does not do something to sub- stantially upbuild Little Rock. He is liberal to a degree in the support of civic affairs and very often does more than his share in the work of helping worthy enterprises, oz. establishin8 some project of benefit to the com- munity. He is one of the most pro- gressive and far-seeing men of the I State and lends his influence to any I cause, civic or otherwise, in every day, June 27, 1883, prove that he faithfully and zealously followed his ideals. Neither was he less success- ful in the following year; on the con- trary, each year brought with it an increase of honors and merits. Nor were his energies confined to a few specialties; while he probably devot- ed more time to those particular stud- ies that were more intimately and im- mediately connected with his voca- tion, he did not, on that account, neg- leot his other duties; for we see him carry off premiums in English, his- tory, French, etc., while he invariably, without a single exception, during all his years at college, captured the medals and premiums for religious in- struction, Church history, Latin, Green and philosophy. That his worth as a student was of sterling quality is evidenced not only by the fact that it was acknowledged by his fellow companions, for" already in his second year he 'was elected vice- president of the Literary and Debating Society, an honor keenly appreciated by every true student; but also by his general interest in every college de- partment; for there was not a single society with which we do not find Bishop Morris' name connected, either as a member or officer, usually the latter. One year we find him sec- retary and treasurer of the Society of the Blessed Virgin MINT, and the next year he holds the highest office, pre- fect; certainly a tribute to his piety. In that same scholastic year, 1884-85, I he is assisant prefect of the Altar I Society, then under the zealous rood- i crater, the Very Rev. Valentine Lan- I ciotti, C. R., a member of the Cecilian Society; lieutenant of Company C, un- Ider the captaincy of Mr. T. E. Byrne; commencement orator, the subject of his oration being "Self Education." The following year, 1885-86, he was n president of the Holy Name Society; secretary and treasure of the Cecilian Society, and captain of Company B. At the commencement exercises of that year, Bishop Morris, always fond of classics, distinguished himself by giving a Greek declamation from De- fiosthenes, i His graduating year was undoubt- edly the brightest in the college ca- reer of Bishop Morris. His merit had been recognized by his fellows in pre- vious years; but in 1886 it was ac- knowledged by his superiors; for, while still a student, he was made a member of the teaching staff, of which that grand educator and profound (Continued on Page 8) TIN, SHEET IRON, CORNICE AND BLOW-PIPE WORK" Heating and Ventilating, Slate, Metal, Tile and Composition Roofs, Stuart Roofing Company Connections ALL WORK GUARANTEED I 115 East Second Street -b00@.4.1,0000000,l, !Central Supply i Company' Mill and Machinery Supplies Also Machinists' Tools i 201 EAST MARKHAM STREET ! i  LITTLE ROCK, ARK. ,lq 000 .I*.,004.}.I00.0.',-t.0000000 WHITE DIAMOND BRAND I FERTILIZERS for Fall Planting Make a Hardy Crop That Will Survive the Winter and Increase the Yield Arkansas Fertilizer Co.
