SATURDAY, RKITE.MHEK 2, 1882
Tlic order of (lit; lttiricd Alive in
Rome, the convent of the ScpoltoVivu
is a remnant of the middle, ages in the
life of to-day. The London Quiai's
correspondent hurt the privilege of an
entrance within, one after another,
of the five iron doors, nnd t.dking
with the. Superior tluoiigh the thick
swathing of n woolen veil, hut odin
nry communication with the convent
is carried on tliiough the ' Imirel,"
which fills an opening in the wall.
Over the harrel is written: "Who
will live contented within these walls,
let her leave at the gate every eiut li
ly care." You knock at the hand,
which turns slowly around till it
shows ti section like that of an
orange from w hich one of the quarters
has been cutout. You speak to an in
visible sister, who asks your will, and
she answers you in good Italian and
cultivated intonation. You hear her
quite distinctly, hut as if it were far,
far awnv. She is rcullv separated
from you only by a slender slice of
woort, hut she is absolutely invisible.
Not the smallest chink is visible he- j
tween you and her. hound travels
throug the barrier but sight is abso
lutely excluded. These nuns live on
charity, keeping two J,ents in the
year one from November to Christ
mas, the other the ordinary Lent of
Catholic Christendom. Living, there
fore, on charily, they may eat what
ever is given to them, saving " llesh
meat " during the fasting time. If
you take them a cake or a loaf of
bread, a bottle of wino, a roll of
chocolate bonbons, basket of eggs,
it is all good for them. They must
bo absolutely Without food for
twenty-four hours before thuy may
ask help from the outside world.
And when they have looked starva
tion in the iacc, then they ring a
bell which means, " Help us, we aie
. famishing" Peihaps you take them
nothing eatablo, but you place on
the ledgo of the cut orange, by
which you sit, some money, demand
ing in return their " cartolini,' or
little papers. The barrel turns slowly
round, then back again, nnd you find
on the ledge wheie you had laid your
lire a paper of ' cartolini." Theso
are very small, thin, light-printed
filijis, ne.!.tly folded in tiny packets,
threo to each packet, which, if j'ou
swallow in faith, will cure you of all
disease. After your talk is ended,
the barrel turns round once inoio
and piesents its face as of an im
movable and impenetrable looking
harrier. One of the pretty traditions
of Rome iH that each sister has her
day, when she throws a llower over
the convent wall as asigntoher watch
ing friends that she is still alive.
"When she has been gathered to the
mnjority the. flower is not thrown,
slid the veil has fallen forever.
