through tbe grand and joyous
dedication of its now church, when

A ureat excitemout in tho midst
of tbo population of tbe littlo
place was caused by the refusal of
burying ber according to tho ii es
of tho Catholic church, though sho
was a catholic.
People who are ignorant of the
rules of tho Cntbolic church, eithor
foreiunors or Portuguese, wore
quick to blame tho priest, and it
whr at firxt though that thoy woro
right nod the priest wrong. But
now that tbo facts are a littlo moro
known tbe public knows why sho
wan refued a catholic burial. It
was becmiso sho had married
against tho law of ber church,
which does not admit divorced
persons to marry again when both
parties are catholic, married by a
catholic priest, and the family had
unfortunately neglected to cull the

mind tbat no man gots any more

you do not pay for good woik you
