STEINHAUER Rock, sufficient of number to call for special consideration of their wants on the part of Bishop Morris. Special effort in behalf of these col- ored Catholics had already been made to the limit of resources by the Very Rev. F. Kraemer, O. S. B., then pastor of St. Edward's Church, Little Rock. Bishop Morris made it possible for him to go further and to that end )urchased for him a site for a church for colored Catholics located on Gaines and Eighth streets. Father Kraemer immediately undertook the foznation of a parih and its needed equipment. Two wooden structures in process of decay were on the grounds, one of which was remodeled and put in con- dition to serve as church and school, the Bishop defraying the expense in- curred. Father Kraemer gave his selwiees without remuneration until a pastor was secured. Upon th dedi= cation of the simple structure it was named St. Bartholomew. In November, 1910, the work was taken over by the Society of the Di- vine Word. A school was started under the care of the Sisters .of the Holy Ghost, anti soon it became ap- parent that the quarters were much too small to meet the comforts of the Sisters and pupils. The Rt. Rev Bishop, realizing conditions, donated a piece of property at Sixteenth and Marshall streets, where, with the as- sistance of Reverend Mother Drexe of the Order of Blessed Sacrament, a two-story combination church school and rectory were erected. Four years ago the growth of the congre- gation and school made it necessary to again enlarge the quarters and a third building was completed, giving two school rooms, with movable par- titions, serving as assembly hall and for the various social activities of the cimrch and the school. The school is grammar and high school. During the past year 224 pupils were enrolled. Rev Father J. J. Steinhauer, S. V. D., who has been the pastor of St. Bartholomew's since September 1. 1917, reports the congregation as be- ing very zealous and active, and all the members working hard with him to make the congregat!on grow in zeal and members. A splendid Holy Name Sodality has been formed, as well as the League of the Sacred Heart. There 'Jre 164 faro- flies in the congregation. Father Steinhauer moves every wheel in tlie operation of this unique church ])lant, and to his indefatigable: labors, inspirited by his religious love of church and schools, is due that great success which is placing St Bartholomew's parish among the flourishing of the diocese. The lines of his activities are not in parallel with those of other parishes in many respects, and the success so far ob- tained in this great apostolate, in a great measure, is due to the personal equation of Father Steinhauer with his intellectual acquirements, his la- bors and his pious zeal. The Smiths never had any a)ns, and have invariably sealed their let- ters with their thumbs." "Diseased Nature ofttimes breaks forth In strange eruptions." A.
