From early morning until sunset women
nnd children streamed Into the weather
beaten old convent. Its entrance Is on Min
nesota avenue and Kansas street, and the
ptructure. as It has been built with its nu
merous additions, rambles over two city
squares. With Its dense foliage and the
beautifully tended grove of great old locust
trees, and long quivering creepers, and the
little beds of vivid flowers, the quaint old
place reminds one of convents in Europe.
Tho convent Is one of the richest in the
West, as It Is tho mother-house of the Sis
ters of St. Joseph In this part of the United
States. The Reverend Mother Algoria Is
the superior. The convent is perched on a
high bluff overlooking- a large sweep of tho
Mississippi River and of the Illinois shore.
Yesterday the sisters were at liberty to
loiter In nooks about the beautiful grounds
with their visitors. The entire place had a
eweet, placid atmosphere that filled the vis
itor with peace and quiet.
One of ths things which the nuns exhib
ited with much pride was the new chnpel,
which has Just been completed. Its con
struction, with the altar and Its various
ornaments, cost many thousands of dollars.

gift of one of the nuns. It is filled with
laro statuary and splendid marbles, and
there are numerous relics of martyred
taints, who'e memory is dear to the Sisters
of St. Joseph. There are also several tomb
stones, taken from the Catacombs, that are
known to bo more than 2,000 j ears old. The
main altar is an "altare prlv lleglatum," by
special dispensation from the Pope, and
there are live other altars around it in
honor of Uc Blessed Virgin, St. Joseph,
the Chapel of Martjrs. the Souls of tho
Head, and Our Lady of Salette. The sta
tions are all of rare beautv and are con
structed of the same material as those at
St. Francis Xavier's Church.
