Persecu- tion, remarkable evidences of the most intense piety, and the gift of the stigmata added to its luster. Mary Bauardy was born January 5, 1846, at Abellin, a little village of Gal41ee between Haifa and Nazareth At three years of age, she lost both her parents. Taken hen his house by one of her uncles, she went, some time later, with her adopted family to Alexander, Egypt, where she pre- pared herself to prove with her blood her attachment to the Faith. Thus, beginning with her infancy, she wrote one of the most touching pages one Called To Religious Life For several years there ~ollowed for the Galilean heroine a series of penances and voluntary immolations, while she was staying as a servant with private families in Alexandria, Jerusalem, Beirut and ]~arseille. This was a period of a hidden life, but ac- companied by ex~raardinary mani- festations of grace easily comparable with the life of the Venerable Gemma Galgani of Lucca, Italy., With her wish for sanctification, Mary Bauardy saw grow the call ,of God to the religious life in a monas- tery. She was twenty years-old when she took her decision to have the world and enf~er a convent. After several uncertainties in regard to a choice of institutions, in May 1865, she was admitted as a postulant in the Mother house of the Sisters of St. Joseph of the Apparition at Cap- ellette, near Marseflle, Franoe.

Wade, president of the Mercantile Trust Company, internationally known financier and one of the most prominent Catholics in this section of the country, lied at his home here lass night. He was 67 years old. Mr. Wade had been ill for some time, having been operated on for cancer of the throat. Apparently he was on the road to recovery, but sev- eral days ago developed pneumonia. Two daughters, Mrs. L. P. Warren, bf Washington, D. C., and Mrs. Sewell Thomas of Denver, were summon- ed. Monday night his condition became so grave that the Re. Rev. Msgr. John L Tannrath, chancellor of the St. Louis Cathedral, was called and the last rites of the Church were admin-- istered. Mr. Wade is survived by his widow, three daughters and a son. His third daughter is Miss Florence Wade of St. Louis, and the son is Festus J. Wade, Jr., a vice-president of the Mercantile Trust Company. Festus J. Wade was born in Lim- erick, Ireland, October 14, 1859, the son of Thomas and Catherine Wade. The following year his parents brought him to America and settled in St. Louis. From the position of an obscure Irish immigrant, he ros~ to heights in the financial world by force of his own character. He was purely a self- made man. At the conclusion of a ,brief period of schooling in the public schools of St. Louis, and a short course at a business college, young wade began his struggle up the ladder of success. He tried many things, in some ofI which he found himself an almostI complete failure. In fact he was 29 years old before he finally launched on the career that was to bring him l success. I] He was cash boy in a dry goods[ store at the age of 10, shortly afteri leaving school. His {next job was as helper in a photograph gallery, and] his next as water boy for a gang of workmen engaged in converting the railroad tunnel under the approach to Ends bridg6. At the age of 14 he became an In a short while after, the future financier found himself driving one of St. Louis' horse-drawn street cars. It seems the route on the line on which Wade worked was by the very corner on which the great financial institution of which he was the found- er and ~he head, now stands. His irse from then on was meteoric. On November 4, 1899, the Mercan- tile Trust Company was organized with Mr. Wade as president. The first offices of the company had 2,500, square feel The present quar- ters, which stand on the northeast corner of Eighth and Locust streets, occupies 93,000 squar~ feet. As president of the trust company Mr. Wade soon became on, og the leaders of the financial world. The bank's ventures have been varied and many, the institution having financed some of the greatest projects through- out the Southwest. DECLARES LOURDES" CURES MIRACULOUS (By N. C. W. C. News Service.) London, SepL 26. An unusual tes- timonial to the miraculous cures of Lourdes was made at a recent ibrot- estant meeting a~ Wimbledon, near London, where Dr. J. J. Sherry testi- fies to having observed two eFses-- one of spinal troubh and the other of fibrous tumor which were complete- ly and instantaneously cured when, in his judgment~ cure by any ordi- nary medical means was absol~ately impossible. The speaker of the evening had opened the discussion by describing the cures of Lourdes as pure super- stition, but an EngIish Jesuit, Father Felice Rankin, who was in the audi- ence, took the floor and descried the testimonials given at Lourdes last year by 600 physicians. One of these physicians, moreover, Father Rankin said, indicating D. Sherry, hppened to be present in the halL Dr Sherry was therefore immediateIy asked to speak in his turn, and stated un- hesitatingly and unequivocal/y that in his opinion theSwo cures he had himself observed ~muld have been' out of the question for ordinary hu- man powers. The doctor's obvious They show that among those of sufficient distinction to appear an "Who's Who," the present birth rate is 2.9 per family, which is "far be- low- the 4.5 per family required if this class is to hold its own and in- crease very slightly." "If the present tendencies to small families in this class continues." they add, "this is likely to be a sad world two or three, centuries hence, when witb the mother's particular job, which is the bearing and rearing of children. Mrs. Norris concedes that women usually do not see it that way, for the reason that for hundreds of years the world has been lying to them about what is vital to their hap- piness. "I disagree with the advocates of birth control." Mrs. Norris continues, "because motherhood, rightly taken, both brains and ,beauty have been is so much the most exquisite, the fully weeded out among our worn- most satisfying, the most important en." Variotrs causes are assigned by the authors for the decline of the intel- lectually elite. The fashionable be- lief that large families are not "good form." the rising cost of living, kitch- enette apartments and feminism are given most discussion. "We must completely abandon the modern idea that it is 'the thing' to have small families," they assert, "and the means must be found of're- moving the economic handicap of children among people of the kind whose 'children are the most likely to turn out well." The authors scout the belief that the upper classes constantly gain re- cruits from the lower classes. The exact opposite is their conclusion. In order to save the upper classes from bringing about their own extinction not only must they multiply, accord- ing to the authors, but the "fecundity of ~he lower classes must be control- ed." The authors profess to find a close connection between religion and the birth rate The more religious types have larger families than the non-re- qigious, although chrgymen have been reducing the size of their families in recent decades, they,point out. The development through eugenics of superior classes possessed of emo- tional control will reduce, they pre- dict, the number of criminals. Crim- inals are emotionally unbalanced,, they assert, and tend to reproduce their kind. SCOTLAND YARD HERO, CATHOLIC, ONCE GUARD TO ROYALTY, IS DEAD London, Sept. 26.--A famous Ca- tholic detective, Superintendent John McCarthy, one of the best-known men at Scotland Yard, died here this week, aged 66. He was a member of the Catholic Police Guild. Though he retired fro his normal work about ten years ago, he was retained in the inner counsels of Scotland Yard until he died, on ac- count of his exceptional learning and capacity A thorough knowledge of German and Spanish gave him open- ings for proving his usefulness in European countriesoutside Great Britain and Ireland. Royalty came under his care. He accompanied King George when as Prince of Wales he visited Canada, and also attended him when he went to Madrid for the marriage of King Alfonso. He was riding behind the King when the notorious bomb-throw- ing incident occurred. One of Superintendent McCarthy's most famous cases was the Muswell Hill murder. A child's toy lanterv was one of *he clues. One man wa~ under suspicion, but his possession of the lantern could not be traced. The police thereupon placed the lan- tern in a conspicuous position in a 'shop where one of the suspect's child sincerity did not fail to impress the lxelatives used to go. On his next hearers, visit the child recognized the toy, part of any woman's life; because children are so infinitely dear and valuable; because the occupation of bearing them, raising and training and studying them, is the real bust- ness of the nation; because when they are pushed aside for the stupid ma- terial things we fight so hard for nowadays ~heir baffled fathers and mothers grow hard and dull, discon- tented and miserable. "It is my profound conviction that more sorrow, illness, loneliness, frus- tration, have come, case for case, to the women of the world, ~hrough de- nying motherhood, already in these very first years of birth control, than the sum total of the different trials that have' come to the distracted and bverburdened mothers of large and unregulated ,families. "No, control everything else first! Control passions if you can, control rents and food prices, control amuse- ments and luxuries, come down to lifo in one or two rooms, to plainer fare and fewer dissipations. But let every woman appreciate, in her very childhood, that life is the crown of life, and that it is her amazing privi- lege to give it." * * * * * * * * * * * * STATE LEGISLATURES * * * * * * * * * * * * Washington, D. C., Sept~. 29.--- Outstanding among proposals to be submitted by the New York State Crime Commission to the New York Legislature in 1928 are a "first- of- fender act, which will serve to regu- late erring youth rather than make of them habitual criminals, and a "fence" act that wlil reach all hand- lers of stolen gods,, according to State Senator Caleb E. Baumes, chairman of the Commission and father of the Empire State's anti- crime laws which bear his name. Senator Baumes, who was in Buf- falo last wek for conference with re- gard to the Commission's program, said the Commission also is planning an act that will permit a District At- torney to comment on the failure of a defendant to take the witness stand and a probation act that wil[wipe out existing defects and shortcomings in the present system. On completion of the hearings of the entire Commission, which will be held in New York City next V~ednes- day and Thursday, the body will hold other sittings throughout the State until the holidays. "We are whipping our p~ogram in- to shape," Senator Baumes said. "We want the united and hearty support of all members of the Commission for the proposals on which we are work- ing.
