They Are Doing
It may be of interest to our
readers to know how much the
Church is doing towards promo
ting education on this reservation,
especially the Catholic church.
A few days ago we were gracious
ly permitted the privilege of ac
cess to a large and well filled store
house adjoining the St. Benedict's
mission school. Here were great
piles of boxes, barrels and flour,
and an endless yariety Of useful
articles pertaining t6 the home,

Oweing to some misinterpreta

connection with the furnishing of
building material to be employed
in the construction of St. Bene
dict's mission school at this agen

will necessarily have to be delayed
until next summer. Th founda
tion only will be put up this sea
son. And we learn that Rev. Fa
ther Aloysious has already received
instructions to proceed with this
part of the work at once. Con
tracts for the excavation and the
furnishing of stone for the founda
tion walls, etc., will soon be let
and the work pushed rapidly for

heavy fall frosts set in.

GROWTH OF A BI ROOK.When
Webster's Unabridged was first pub
lished in one volume, it was a compa
rative small book. Some years aftei
an addition was made of 1500 Pictori
al illustration, a Table of Synonyms,
and an Appendix of New Words that
had come into use. A few years later
came an entirely new revised editioi
of larger size, with 3000 Pictorial il
lustration then after an interval of a
few years, a Biographical Dictionary
of nearly 10,000 names, and a .fiuppfc
ment of nearly 5000 new words wer
added and now there has. come. anoth
er new and most vrluable addition,
Gazetteer of the world, of over 25,00t
Titles. The work is now not only th
best Dictionary of the words of the
language, but is a Biographical Die
tionary. a Gazetteer of the World anr
a great many other good and useful
things in ifca many valuable Tables.
