On the eleventh of June, 1892, he received the apex of dignities, the priesthood, in the Lateran Basilica, from the Vicar General of Rome, car- dinal Parocchi. The following (lay he said his first Ma.s at St. Peter's, in the chapel of the Blessed Sacrament, being assisted by the Right Reverend Monsignor John Farrelly, the Spirit- ual Director of the American College, now Bishop of Cleveland. Bishop Morris began his missionary labors at Nashville, where he had been appointed assistant at the Cathe- dral parish. As a "dispenser of the mysteries of God," and in the office of "enlightening all men, that they may see what is the dispensation of Urban College De Propaganda Fide, the mystery which hath been hidden disposition, his capacity to rule over the most renowned institution of its others. He was vice-president of the Ceeilian Society, a society of which he has been a member for several years; and this bespeaks his love for music in particular, and for the finer arts in general In military affairs we have seen him successively ser- geant, lieutenanl and captain; this Fea we see him adjutant general to J. J. Long; in other words, he was "all but," as the boys say. In athletics he :was so prominent as to be elected !president of the association; and this i proves that he (lid not surrender one part of the man for the advancement of the other; that he trained the phy- sical as well as the intellectual and moral parts; that he devoted the whole man; and consequently that he understood and realized the principle, "Mens sane in corpore sane;" in a ord, that he did nothing by halves. Furthermore, as a tribute to his elo- quence, he was elected to the presi- dency of the Litersay. Finally, and this is undoubtedly the greatest dis- tiaction for any student, he was ap- pointed editor-in:chlef of "The Senti- nel." This task was by no means an easy one; for to fill a chair that has been so ably occupied by such illus- trious predecessors as Mr. W. N. Law- less, "The Sentinel's" first editor; Mr. Thomas Walsh, a true and sublime poet of the south and at this writing an eminent member of the Louisville bar; the Rev. D. B. Crowley; Mr. Thompson, a poet and forcible prose writer, was sufficient to shake even the sturdiest. But Bishop Morris, true to his native determination, in his first editorial, assures us that he will employ all his energy to-make "The Sentinel" a success.

After but two years of labm are held in Rome. At the end of the! first scholastic year he received the I Baccalaureate of Philosophy and sev- eral distinctions in the public con- cursus. The nineteenth of December, 1890, was a happy day for Bishop Morris; he received the first sacred pledge of his ho:y vocation, of which St.. Paul says: ".either doth any man take the honor to himself, but he that is called by God, as Aaron was." He received the tonsure from Cardinal Parocchi, at that time Vicar General of Rome. Henceforfl he is no longer a layman but a cleric; he is conse- crated to God bythese words: "The Lord is the portion of my inheritance and of my cup; it is Thou that wilt restore my inheritance to me." Ps. XV, 5. On the twenty-second day of De- cember of the same year he received the two first minor orders, and on March 1, 1891, the remaining two, from Archbishop Lenti, at the Lateran Basilica. Finally the (lay arrived to which every cleric looks forward with longing expectancy and on which he irrevocably binds himself by the sol- emn vow and assumes the life-long obligation of reciting the canonica hems, commonly called the breviary, the day on which he receives the sub- diaconate. Bishop Morris was ordain- ed sub-deacon on the 25th day of July, 189:!, by Cardinal Parocchi; and, owing to the progress he had made in his studies, and his very creditable examinations in the various theologi- cal branches, obtained a dispensation from the regular interstitial time and as assistant at the Cathedral, Bishop Morris was appointed his secretary and chancellor of the diocese. The following year, in June, 1895, he nmde him rector of the Cathedral anti on the llth of June, 1900, he conferred upon him the highest honor at his command--he made him Vicar Gen- eral; and on the third of December of the same year he received the title of Monsignor from the Supreme Pontiff, St. ]oesph's (Continued from Page 3.) Joseph's Orphanage is not only a monument to his successful regime as Bishop of Little Rock, but it is a mon- ument to the Catholic Church of l;he South anti a benefit to humanity of all denominations. Its influence will be felt even more in after 'ears, be- cause the foundation is merely laid at this time The institution has not had time to demonstrate its strong qualities. In after years when we find numbered among our successful busi- ness enterprises and professional ca- reers those who obtained their first start in life from St. Joseph's Or- phanage, then we will realize, and not until then, .'wha this institution is doing for our community and for the people of the South. No one could doubt the correctness of the above statement if they had visited St. Joseph's Orphanage and looked over the intelligent faces and happy coun- tenances of the majority of the chil- dren wb, o are being educated and trained at this institution. Here they equip themselves with the weapons to combat the future. Here the seeds are planted in their garden of life The hm-cest that follows will bring glory to many--to those in the insti- tution who mothered them and mould- ed their future as near as words and action couhl do; to those witql: whom they come in direct contact and with those that Providence has designated as their life associates.

On the 18th of April, 1906, he was pre- conized Bishop of Armenia, and Co- adjutor-Bishop to the Rt. Rev. Ed ward Fitzgerahl, D.

They have i sacrifieed earthly pleasures that they be of sere, ice to God and their church in dispensing comforts and care to he needy.
