The h'- NOT --,-v-,,ish tour of 0081,l was a success, and he formed a lasting frmmiship with Dan- iel O'Connell, then beginning to make a name as a barrister. Payne sent the music as well as the verses of "Home, Sweet Home" to Sir Henry Bishop, and as there is mucii misconception as to the source of the melody, it seems tolerably certain that Bishop's share in it was merely as an "arranger." Here is Payne's own ac- count, communicated to his friend, James Rees, of Philadelphia: First Heard Air in Italy "I first heard the air in Italy.

Reception Into Church For evidence of Payne's reception into the bosom of the Church the fol- lowing letter from Father Abram Jo- seph RYan, the poet-priest of the Con- federate army, author of "The Con- quered Banner," a friend of Payne,] may be taken as conclusive.

For five years this Catholic man was nmved about from hospital to ho:pital, undergoing no fewer than sixteen operations, to save him trom this disastrous effects of wounds re- ceived at the Dardanelles during the war, The surgeons werd unable to help him, and at last, carried helplessly in a wheeled chair, Traynor "vent to Lourdes with the great pllgrmage from Lancashire. He was carried down to the healing waters, and after the ninth immersion he was able to walk out of the waters without any assistance whatever. At Liverpool, when the pilgrimag returned, a vast crowd thronged the platformf where the pilgrim train was co draw up; for news of the marvel had been flashed from Lourdes to Liv- erpool. Spellbound by the sight of - the once paralyzed man walking free-! ly and easily across the platform, the] crowd broke out into cheers, at the .,pectacle of this wonder wrought through ther/tercession bf the Ble, "- ed Virgin. It is not wise to generalize; but a l very great change seems to be tak- ing place in British non-Catholic pub- lic opmmn in regard to Lourdes. Ths change of attitude is being helped by[ i the tale of the .wonders wrought in Scotland, where at the Lourdes shrin erected 5y the Catholic miners in the I village of Carfin, remarkable answers to prayer are reported.
