vertible 5's, ex-coupon. 10S vras paid.
There was a much larger business done in
bank stocks last week "than usual. For 10
shares of the Metropolitan Bank 270 was paid,
an advanco of $3 per share on a previous sale.
This stock at anything less than 300 is likely
to prove a paving investment. For 10 shares
of West Eud National 9i was paid. There is
si ready sale for this stock at about this price
with no stock offering at the close below 103.
For 30 Ehares of Lincoln Bank stock the
full par value of 100 was paid. The lowest
offering to sell this stock was at 103 on Sa
turday. For Columbia National bank stock
150 was paid for IS shares. This stock will
yield 4 per cent, clear of tax at the price paid,

quotations. Tho closing bid was at 15, with
161 the lowest offering. The only sale on the
board was of 72 shares at 15J.

week was the continued strength of tho Wash

which price several largo sales were made, but
during tho past week no sales wero recorded
at less than 100, at which price on the board

were of 6 shares at 42J. The first sale of
Georgetown Gas stocks for many weeks was
made on Thursday last S shares brought $50.

IN HONOR OP BISHOP OHAPfilLE
Tendered n Recaption by Pupils of Holy
Friday was a mcmorablo day to tho pupils
of Holy Cross Academy. Wishing to offer a
testimonial of their grat'tudo and affection
they tendered to tho IU. Rov. Bishop Chapollo
a reception in tho Academy Hall, which was
beautifully decorated for tho occasion. Loud
applause greeted tho ncwly-orected Bishop as
he entered, which gradually subsided as
Mendelssohn's march from "Athalia" burst
foith from violins aud pianos. A tribute of
affection which is printed below, was pre
sented by Miss Margaret Loughrau, on tho
part of her companions, mingling congratula
tions with regrets. The yoiing lady's deliv
ery was all that could be desired. "Souhaots
de Bonheur" was a pretty French effusion
read by Miss J. Littlelleld "ou the part of tho
French class. Miss O'Brien's recitation, "An
Empty Niche," was given iu graceful style.
On this occasion as on all others, the minims
claim their shato of honors from their older
sisters, and presented in a very creditable
manner "An Elecutionary Contest," which
called forth rounds of applause.
Miss L. Saurn's reuditiou of Haydn's To
Deutu was greatly complimented, as was also
Miss It. Small in" her vocal solo, "Flour des
Alps." The choruses were very good, tho
youug voices ringing out clear and strong to
tho accompanimeut'bf violins and piano.
As the last sounds of Rossini's "La Carita"
died away the Bishop arose to address the
lie preluded his remarks by saying that
nothing renders tho human heart so happy as
tho knowledge that one is loved; that this
lovo is enhanced in value many fold when it
proceeds from hearts young and pure; when
its motive is disinterested, and when sanctified
by religion. The Bishop complimented the
young ladles and their alma mater in tho
warmest terms, assuring them that he re
joiced that so many years of his life had been
spent In their midst, and that ho would carry
away most pleasant memories of the good Sis
ters of tho Holy Cross and the pupils of their
Present at the reception were a number of
tho parents of the children aud friends of tho
institution. Following is tho poetical tribute
delivered by Miss Loughrau:
All days are God's, and each successive dawn
Is but a note that swells tho hymn of praise,
That rises like sweet incense from tho earth
In thanks to Him, trom whom all blessings
And minded in the music of that song i
That endless song our souls to-day send forth
Glad notes of jiratltude and sacred joy,
For Christ tho King, through holy Mother
Has honored ono whom all our hoarts revere.
Tho mitre and tne croslerl Blessed signs
Of two-fold office! First to rule all hearts
By coronet divinely sent, tho staff
To guard the flock of Christ from evil powers.
Felicitations warm our hearts present.
As unto God we offer this our prayer
Ob. may the mitre crown your life with joy.
And may the crosier guide your steps for aye!
As softly over Bethlehem's care there rose
AnRellc voices breathing peace and joy.
Within tho Maiden Mother's heart there rang
Strange bounds, and Calvary's echoes sad und
Awoke to sleep no more ; and so to us
Amid tbo acclamations that abound
There come the minor chords, the nolC3 of
That toll of parting from our father dear.
The years eternity now holds, have been
Most fruitful in sweet thoughts of gratitude.
Of filial lovo; for, every day revealed
A father's care, a lather's tender heart
For those confided to his guiding hand.
The labors of your life an open book
In which we read reflected on each page
The lessou3 taught of Heaven are known to
And must the ties thus formed bo broken now
By parting? No, ah ! no; our hearts cry out,
Our father shall remain oura(ier still.
The memory of your words, your counsels
With holy wisdom shall bo ours for aye.
Aud though your labors call you tar away
To distant land, we are, our father dear.
Your loving children aud your friends In truth.
The bead-roll of the Church in our fair land
Is rich in names of those who raltro crowned
And armed with crosier, firmly meet tho foo
That stands asrainst our God. Now writ in
Your namo shall stand with all tbo golden
And deeds that have drawn blessings from on
On that bravo list, for you have purchased
Souls for Heaven ! Ah ! would that we might
toll you all
Our hearts would fain express, but you who
Our very souls, must need no word of oura
To speak. our sorrow and ourgratof ul love.
As Bishop then we greet you, father dear.
But title dearer, yet more fraught with pain
At thought of losing you, our friend, our pride,
Our father yerf our father, faithful, true.
We oifer you our homage, and wo pray
That whosoe'er tho voice of God may call
Your children's constunt love and heartfelt
May make you blessed, thrice blessed of God
Our greeting and our prayers are lost in tears
And joys sweet lays are soundless neath tho
