to tell about Rudolph's career in the

to the conclusion that Rudolph was
none other than the ill-fated Marshal
Ney. This is not the first time that it
has been claimed Marshal Ney was an
American. It is hardly probable but
altogether possible that Ney was none
other than Michael Rudolph.

A Dastardly Outrage.
Tlie fact has just been made public
that, on the 19th day of July, some
persons entered the Sister's chapel, at
Belle Prairie, by breaking the lock,
and destroyed an oil painting of St.
Anthony of Padua, that cost two hun
dred dollars. Some of the fixtures
the buildiug were taken out by the
same parties and were thrown into the
river. The paintine was cut into sev
eral pieces. This is the most amazing
display of natural and acquired de
pravity that has occurred in this im
mediate vicinity for several years. It
is reported that the deed was perpe
trated by certain boys whose parents
are Protestants in good standing, but
the charge is denied by the boys and
their parents. Whoever the "perpe
trators may be, they richly deserve a
term of service in the penitentiary or
the reform school. The painting was
sent to Father Pierz several years ago,
to be presented to some of the missions
in his circut, and he presented it to the
mission at Belle Prairie. Father Pierz
labored on the frontiers and among
the Indians for 65 years, and endured
the hardships, trials and accidents in
cident to that manner of life. He was
engaged in this part of the State for
v^vl* 20 .years. In addition t/\ bis
duties as/preist, he was at the service
of those who needed medical treat,
ment, either Catholics or Protestants
and his services in such cases were
free. His estate in Germany yielded
him a considerable income, which he
freely but judiciously expended to re
leive needy Indians and others, and his
whole life was occupied with works of
christian love and charity. Four years
ago, at the age of eighty-seven, his
physical facclties Lad become so weak
that the Bishop insisted upon his re
tirement from labor, and he returned
to Germany, where he is still living.
The painting that was lately destroy
ed, having been presented by Father
Pierz, possessed a value that money
could not replace, and the perpetrators
of this crime should suffer the penal
ties of the law to the fullest extent.
