JOSEPH'S ORPHANAGE That seeing is believing was never more fully demonstrated to the writer than on yesterday afternoon, when His Lordship, Rt. Rev. Bishop John B. Morris, took us out to St. Joseph's ()rphanage and over tile vast planta- tion connected therewith. To our astonishment, wbich grew into amazement and wonder, we be- hehl there ,m the hilltops, amid the forest primeval, a most magnilicent structure, planned, erected and equil)l)ed by Bishol) Morris at a cost reaching near tile $2oo,oo0 mark. The buihli,lg, though grand in its every al)pointnmnt, is not comparable to tile oCCUl)ants thereof. There the good Benedictine Sisters have charge of and care for more than a hundred children--chihlren who, but for the got)d home furnished at St. Joseph's, or some similar institution, would be out in the world, homeless and per- haps friendless. Unlike some unfor- tunate children we have seen in or- phanages, each boy and each girl at St. Joseph's is bright, intelligent, healthful and happy. The boys, strong, with cheeks rosy and eyes sparkling, were husy, some gathering tonmtoes, others plucking luscious waternielons from tile vines anti load- ing them in wagons, ready for market, and others Still were pulling weeds and doing such pleasant work as the very nature of things called for. In walking ahont over the premises, admiring a octton patch here and a promisiug young orchard there, com- menting on the l)otatoes, Irish and otherwise, and viewing tile vast do- main, surrounded on some sides by stone fences, ancient, perhaps, as the surrounding rock-ribbed hills, it was our 1)leasure to pull from the vine-- just like we dil in flays gone 1)y--a fine, large melon, which, in company with the Bishop, we thoroughly en- joyed without the aid of a knife as we sat tm a standstone under the shade of an oak that sheltered us from what seemed to us the hottest sun we ever felt. Following the Bishop, who, we thought, would soon tire of his ram- blings, but wbo surprised us by grow- ing more animated and faster of foot as we proceeded, we went on, regard- less of nmd and heat, until we had as we tbought, seen it all, but was told on our way home of many inter-. esting things we didn't see. We did see, however, some of the linest stock we have seen since leaving Kentucky some years ago. Hogs of the fat, red Duroc Jersey variety ambled out from among the bushes and grass as we passed along, aud so fine were they, being so well bred and registered, that the grunt of the big ones sounded soft and sweet, while the squeal of the pigs was really musical. Cows, fat and sleek, were grazing on the green, waiting for the coming of the milk- maid, who would surely return with large pails well filled. The white rabbits, frying size chickens, cackling hens, crowing roosters, noisy turkeys, swimming ducks, pretty feathered pheas'ants, all gave the place a cheerful; homelike appearance. On our return toward the orpran- age we passed through the vineyards, and though we labored not, even from the eleventh hour, we did eat some line grapes, while his Lordship pointed out to us the vast beds of as- paragus, strawberry beds and hrry vines of every kind and variety. When we returned to the orphan{tge we heard in some of the halls pretty music; in other parts of the building we saw the girls working about the laundry and the kitchen, and in the chapel, devoutly praying, we saw some old women kneeling with howed heads. The immensity of the buildings and grounds mad( us know" tile work of building and maintaining such an in- stitution must have been and is great on His Lordship, and as we stepped into the big Chalmers that had been waiting for us, we were just about to wonder why the Bishop shouldered such an undertaking, but before the thought was hardly born the big car was passing through the wide gate, which tile children had hurried to open, and as we were whirled away many glad hands were raised and V.

Archbishop Bruchesi's Address at the Reding of Decrees Proclaiming Their Heroic VirtuesThe Holy Father's Tribute. On Wednesday, July ]9, in the Vati- can, in the august presence of His Holiness, Plus X, were promulgated tile decrees proclaiming the heroic virtue of the venerable servants of God, Louise (le Marillac-Legras, co- foundress of the Sisters of Charity, and Marie d'Incarnation, foundress of the Ursulines in Canada. Among those present were Cardinals Marti- nelli and Verrata, exponents of the two causes, thc chief officials of the Sacred Congregation of Rites, Mon- signor Bruchesi, Archbishop of Mon- treal, and many representatives of the Lazarists, Sisters of Charity and Ur- sulines. After the reading of the decrees Monsignor I3ruchesi, chosen by the mstulators to thank His Holiness, spoke as follows: "Most Holy Father, would it he rash to see an admirable disposition of Providence in the coincidence which uuites today in receiving the saute honors from the visible head of the Church those two ilustrious servants of God, the venerable Louise de Marillac-Legras and the venera- ble Marie d'lncarnation? So perfect- ly (It) they seem' to be Sisters in their origin, in their wonderfully fruitful careers, in the works they have left after then(, in the virtues of which your Holiness proclaims 'Urbi et Orbi,' the heroic character. Both of them are daughters of France. They are born both at the close of the Six- teenth Century, within eight years of one another, and (me follows the other to the ttnnb after an interval of twelve years. Both of them, in their l youth, are distinguished for a tender love of the poor, feel themsel,es drawn to the religious life, and yet embrace the married state in obedi- ence to their spiritual directors. They are model wives and mothers, like the 'muller fortis' of the Scripture. F.ach of them has one son, that of Louise de Marillac-Legras hecame Royal Councillor of the Court of Les Mon- naies; that of the spouse of M. Martin entered the order of St. Benedict. Both of them, becoming widows; give MILDRED SANDEFUR. To be a real singer is an accomplishment anyone may justly crave. This accomplishment is attained by comparatively few, barring the age limit and years of training. To one so young in years, whose natural, untrained talents entitle her to the distinction of being classed among the singers with a hard and well-earned reputation is a mark of distinction rarely enjoyed. The exception to the rule is proved in the case of little Miss Mildred Sandcfnr, the 10-year-ohl (langlUcr of Mr. and Mrs. J. 1t. Sandefur of this city, whose voice is the envy of o/der singers and tb} marvel" of those not talented vocally. Since she was 3 years old Mildred has heen appearing in public, and her sweet voice and natural self-possession has won for her the admiration of all who have heard her. By special request of the management and numerous patrons of the Gem Theater, she consented to sing, and did appear at that popular amusement house last Friday evening and Saturday afternoon. With the "spot light" upon her she sang, and her stage appearance was almost the personification of self-poise and grace that rarely comes to those whose training and public appearances cover a period of many years, Her songs there, as usual, were enthusiastically applauded, which marked the degree of. appreciation with which they were received. Her parents will not permit her to sing much or often, lest in her tender years she may injure her voice, which able critics have pronounced as little less than wonderful. Among the singers of Little Rock Mildred is a fa- vorite. themselves irrevocalfly to Christ, and henceforth live only for him. As If by Miracle. "Louise de Marillac was associated with that apostle, that 'giaut of char- ity,' St. Vincent de Paul, whose feast we are keeping today. She fotmds the congregation of the Sisters of Charity in the same year in which Marie l'In- carnation, who has entered the con- vent of the (Jrsulines of Tours, makes her religious profession. She devotes herself to all the works of mercy, the care of the sick in their homes and in the hospitals, of the aged in the hos- pices, of ahandoned chih[ren and wounded sohliers; she visits the im- prisoned in heir dungeons; she is the comIlassionate mother of all who are unhappy. Her institute has develop- ed as if by a miracle, and today it cotmts 35,ooo' memhersl and 266o houses, scattered all over the world. Free one day every year, March 25, from all religi'ous bond, these 35,ooo wonlen renew together with joy un- tohl the sacred engage,nent which hinds then( to Jesus Chris.t and to the service of His suffering menahers. "The Theresa of New France." "Madie de l'lncaruation has heard the heavenly voice bidding her leave country and her son to cross the At- hmtic and labor for the conquest of souls in that new France which has just arisen on the banks of tile St. ing disnmys her. Quehee receievs her Lawrence. Nothing arrests her, noth- with the strains of the 'Te Deum' as a minis.tering angel of the nascent col- ony. Thanks to her, the Ursulines are established there, the little chil- dren learn the word of God, the sick are tended with a mother's care, tile floor savages open their minds to civ- ilization and tile faith. At the same time she writes about the Trinity, which a supernatural vision has re- vealed to her, pages worthy of the soundest theologian, and iifty years before the revelations of Paray-le- lvlonial she speaks of the Sacred Heart in ahnost he saute accents a. those dsetined to he used hy the Blessed Margaret Mary. "Louise de Marillac dies at Paris at tile age of 68, regarded as a saint by St. Vincent de Paul himself, leaving in all who know her a souvenir of the genius and beroisn of charity. Marie de l'Incarnation expires in Quebec at the age of 73, full of merits, lamtented by all, after having been named by Bossuet as 'the Theresa of New France.' 'Most Holy Father, the Sisters of Charity, the Ursulines of Quebec and the whole family of St. Angela in the two worlds at htis moment share the same happiness and sing the same canticle of thanksgiving. I regard it as a great houor to have been chosen to voice their deep gratitude to your Holiness. France and the Canadian nation, mother and daughter, unite in the same transports of holy joy to witness the glorification of two lives so pure and so entirely devoted to the little on(s, to tile humhle, to the suf- ferers and the earth, and they earn- estly pray the Lord that it may soon bc given them to hear your august voive prochfim 'Blessed' Louise de Marillac-Legras and Marie dt l'lncar- nation. And for the two great re- ligious fanfilies so worthily represent- ed today before your throne, for France, our old nlolher country, and for Canada, always faithful to teh Christian traditions and to the lan- guage of its forefathers."--Standard and Times. THE ANTI-CLERICAL PRESS SNEERS AT CATHOLIC FAITH. The Spanish anti-clerical press is trying to compensate itself for the display of Catholic power and faith during and since the Eucharistic Con- gress by sneers aud even open blas- phemies, an offense punishable by Spanish law, hut which is likely to go scot free under the present min- istry, as other public outrages upon Catholic dogma have done, says the Catholic Weekly of London. But, for all their pitiful snarling, the cham- pions of unfaith and revolution can- not help admitting, by the way, how hard they have been hit by the proof of Catholic vitality which they have witnessed from behind their window curtains. Titus the notorious anti- clerical, Senor Morote, in a rahid arti- cle to the press, describes his inter- change of impressious with anti-cleri- cal friends whom he met in the streets of Madrid after the procession wa;s over. Everywhere he found his po- litical allies deeply depressed at the spectacle of religious strength they had witnessed. THE THING TO DO. I:ather Vaughan, the London priest, is said to have, in addition to his more deliherate rhetoric, the art of putting wisdom into a political phrase, which is the definition of the hrightest wit. Often the irony is very qiuck and flash/ng. Once, when he was being shown a portrait of Henry VIII, by Holborn, at Trintiy College, some one asked him what he would do if King Henry stepped down from his frame. "I should ask the ladeis to leave the room," was his instant reply.Argu-. naut.
