, MODERN MIRACLES.
EXTRAORDINARY SCENES THAT ARB
WITNESSED ON TROY HILL,
Nar Pittsburg Hundreds of Sufferera
Cured of Disease by Gratuitous
Treatment, Which is Partly Miracu
lous and Partly Medicinal.
FltUrmrg (IV) ipcclal to the Clobo-Democrat.
On Troy Hill, just across the Allegheny
River from this iron city, there havo been
enacted today scones that mailo all who
witnessed thorn lancy that they had been
transported over tho soa to some foroign
country. For twenty years past the Roman
Cutholic Church of tho Most Holy Nmno,
which occupies a commanding position
near tho brow of the hill, has boon a Mecca
to which halt, laino and blind pilgrims of
every faith, nationality and condition of life
have coino in ever-increasing numbers from
all parts of our country to seek relief from
their physical ailments at tho hands of Its
vcpcrablo pastor, tho Rov. l'athor Mol
linger, a remarkable man, who Las douo
a remarkable work, and who, In addition
to a profound knowledge of modical sci
ence, is believed to possess miraculous
gifts as a healer of all diseases. Whatever
power ho husjn this way FathorMollinger
exercises freely, without money and with
out prico, upon all w ho como to him, and
attributes his success to the immediato
protection of St. Anthony, generally re
garded as the mntit powerful of all tho
saints in his intercession for tho cure of
all tho ills that flesh is Loir to. In his
honor Fathor Mollinger has erected a mng-
niilccnt chapel, at a cost of $73,000, out of
Is own private purso.
ST. ANTHONY TIIS HEALER.
Juno 13 is St. Anthony's Day, at which
timo, as well as upon tho two Jays imme
diately preceding and upon tho two imme
diately following it, that great saint An
thony of l'adua is believed to posses a
special power, and to be most strongly In-
cnni-u 10 empioy it in ocnau oi ai
hen show him honor and reverence.
Consequently, more than 7.000 people, af
flicted with a vast variety of diseases, havo
been assembled on Troy Hill, in the vicin
ity of tho Church of tho Most Holy Xamo
and St Antlionv's Chapel, invoking tho
aid of Father Mollinger and his patron
saint against their bodily infirmities.
Mora than half of theso nHlioU-d onos are
pilgrims from all part of this country.
New York, ltoston, littltimoro and Chi
cago were well represented. Two havo
traveled all the way from San Francisco,
while hundreds como from cities and
towns in almost every State in the Union.
The great saint, to whom so many come
to pay their houiago, and who, In regard
to tho miracles attribntod to him, is, per
hsps, the must remarkable of all tho saints,
was born at Lisbon, in tho Kingdom of
Portugal, August 1 ll'.Lj. At tho ago of
twcnty-livo years ho entered the Francis
can Convent and soon lec.uuo famous for
bis power of converting heretics by his
preaching. It was in this connection that
many of his most marvelous miracles worn
performed. It is said that on one occa
sion, when preaching by the seashore,
he called noou the luilica to hear him, and
itnmcdiatt'ly thousands of thorn raised
their heads above tho water iu a lis'.cning

This miraclo converted all who wit
nessed it, as did also that of his causing
the crow to bo graven upon tho marblu
steps of the great cathedral at Lisbon bv
making tho sign of it in tho air.' He is
said to have converted one heretic by
einsiug his mule to kneel and adore tho
host in prefereuce to eating a luudlo of
hay, though tho animal had been made to
fast three days. A poor woman, w ho had
gono to hear him preach, leaving her in
taut at home, found the child, ou return
ing to hi-r hone, standing erect and un
banned in a kettle of boiling water, into
which it had fallen. On one occasion ho
settled tho disputed paternity of a new
born IiuImi by making it seak the name
of Its father. Not only is St Anthony
said to lie a healer of diseases, but ho is
tho patron of animals as well, and at tho
great church erected in hishoilorat l'adua,
Italy, 1 :f 7 from which he derives tho
nauio of St. Anthony of l'adua and also
the church dedicated to him in Rome,
all animals aro blessed with great cere
mony on St. Anthony's Iay. His aid Is
also invoked in finding anything that is
lot, anl many incidonts aro related of tho
iniarriilou manner in which ho has

rosy streaks of dawn were scarcely visible
in tho eastern heavens when a great mul

They were of all clssnos sndonditions

vast crowd of sight wow, and not a few
devout Christians, ho, though physically

Tho scene carried ono bac k In finry to a
similar ono enacted at the pool of lletliemla
more than I, tax) years ago. when the sick
people of Jerusalem and tlio surrounding
country sought tho miraculous water with
no greater luitli than that with which this
throng of nineteenth century lnine. Imlt
and blind applied their hamls and lips to
the counterpart fnvsnntment of St An
thony, for msny kissed it and all seemed
loath to leave It, despite the eager pressure
of the waiting throng UtiinJ. as each
one knelt before tho image ho passed his
band over its forehead and then over tho
.aJltcicd.portinn of his lody, repeating tho
'rtion three times in aiirctWoa, while his
lips moved in prayer. Ko7 wonderful
tun-s wore said to be emctnl In this wsy
today. Anulo Ames, a I'rotcstsnl young
lady o( personal attractions, residing
In the country near Youngstown, 0., had
been totally deaf for many years past She
prayed before the image of St Anthony,
and rubbed its forehead for the first timo
yesterday, On rising from her knees she
found to her groat joy that she could hoar
the voices of the priests, and today, after
oll'oring hor second petition to tho great
saint, sho found that hor hearing had be
come perfectly normal. Miss Millie Cor
bin, a beautiful girl of this city, who was
stricken with paralysis some two years ago,
and whose lowor hmbs have since been
completely powerless, was homo up
through the crowds to tho imago, andaftor
rubbiug its forehead and praying in the
manner described for a few minutes,
rushed out of tho church wholly unaidod,
and like ono of old went about shouting
and leaping and praising God.
THE CLOSING CERKUOME3.
Mrs. Lizzie Schott, a young married lady
w ho is tho wife of ouo of Pittsburg's best
known citizens, was suffering from a hor
ribly painful attack of intlammotory rhou
mntistu. living homo upon a couch to tho
imago of St Anthony, she soon declared
that her pain had all disappeared, and
later in tho day sho walked from hor homo
to tho church entirely restored to health.
This list of miraculous cures might bo con
At tho closo of "tho 10 o'clock, or high
mass, Father Mollinger pronounced a
six-rial blessing from the steps of tho
church. It was a unique Bight to seo the
multitude, which tilled tho churchyard
and blocked the streets to the walls of tho
opposito dwellings, kneel as ono man w hen
tho good priest appeared with uplifted
hands, in ono of which ho held a bono a
relic of St Anthony and attended by an
acolyte bearing a font of holy water. Upon
thoso 7,000 kneeling souls rather Mollin
ger, with love and pity vibrating in his
voico and team streaming from Lis up
lifted eyes, bestowed a fervent blessing,
praying most earnestly that all sick souls
who had come to him this day for relief
might in no wise be disappointed, but
might bo healed of all their infirmities.
As he stood beneulh the beautiful Juno
sky in his priestly robes, with his whito
hair streaming iu the breezo and his snowy
beard an apicndage w hich, unlike most
priests in this country, ho permits to
grow falling to his waist, ho looked liko
somo prophet of old, to whom his creator
hud mado the secrets of life and naturo an
It was 12:30 o'clock when this blessing
was given; still there was no diminution in
tho crowd, though it included many who
had been on tho ground sinco daylight.
Refreshment booths had boon erected all
along tho streets in tho neighborhood of
tho church, and at these, a well as the
many excellent boarding houses, which
aro maintained in tho vicinity to accom
modate the great number of pilgrims who
Hock hero at all seasons of tho year, the
hungry multitudo weru fed.
Though Father Mollinger' every mo
ment had Item busily occupied sinco ho
rose at 4 o'clock this morning, he devoted
tho interval between high mass and ves
pers to the private examination and treat
ment of tho sick who now crowded about
his houso, a magniliceut dwelling erected
liko St Anthony's Chaul out of his
own privato means, at a cost of $ '5,000..
Four o'clock vesers and another gen
eral blessing at the Chapolof St Anlhonv,
said to contain 4,KX) rohes of Anthony and
other saints, brought tho auiiuul ceremo
nies of tho Festival of St Anlhonv to a
THE IIKAUNfl 1-BIEST.
Father Mollinger, tho remarkable man
who drew together this vast concourse, of
people, Is a native ol llelgium, tifty-eight
years of ago, and was born of wealthy und
noblo parents. After titling himself for
the career of a physician, ho abandoned it
to become a misMouary priest in America.
His llrst seven years in this country wore
pssod in missionary work in porta of
Western Pennsylvania, which wero then
little better than a wilderncM. lie often

In lwio ho was apHilnted to a country
parish in tho diocese of l'ittsburg, and after
Ihrvo years there was transferred to the
Church of the Most Holy Name, on Ttjiy
Hill, whore bo has ever since continued.
I li re his famo has been won as a worker
of miraculous cures, and thero is not a day
in tho year that ho is not visitod by hun
dreds of sick Hope, many of whom como
Father .Mollinger la not a faith-curor.
His treatment is both spiritual and medic
inal. He gives prescriptions to be fi 1 d by
druirgists, and enjoins penance, faith ami
prayer. All Protestant are required to
atmlain from meat for sis suceenivo
Fridays. Ha charges nothing, but patients
aro at liberty to contribute to tho oor
box of bis church. Personally, ho has ho
need of money, lk-sides a large income
from estates in (iormsny, ho hut several
hundred thousand dollars' worth of prop

A day sacred to tho-iiiemnry of fit An
thony ol l'adua brought this morning
thoiiMindsof people, both Protestant and
Catholic, to worship at his shrine, erected
to him In tho chel boaring his namo at
the Church of tho Most Jloly Nsme. on
Troy Hill, Allegheny, at whose altar pre
sides a chief priest the far-famed Falhur
Mollinger. Almost every city in the coun
try was represented, mid nil' believed they
would go away benefited, if not entirely
cured. In this church are somo of tho
bones of the saint, and it is on tho pres
ent occasion that Father Mollinger begin
somo of hi most miraculous cure. The
reverenre and love with which tho rever
end father was greeted by the multitudo
was truly wonderful.
Pivt) o'clock tho church was thronged
with decrepit and diseased people. They
came on crutches, in carnages, carried on
pillows and stretchers, a smlering and pit
ml, but hoping and fuiih-liiicd multitude.
Tho si-cnes in and almiit tho church
were iruaU solemn and impremive. Peo
lo kneeled upon tho bare ground and
hard brick to receive a blessing, and while
weeping tear of pain would amilo and
bless tho priest a ho passed among them.
From early atorniug until mas at 10
o'clock Father Mollinger minis'ored to
the faithful, aud tho result in somo raws
were slinmt miraculous. His methods
ililler w itu the various case. Sometimes
ho rubs the deformity, hi other he uws
medicines alone, and in some en e Itothjaie
used. Ho protends to di no miracles, but
having a wonderful knowledge1 of medi
cine and human ills, prescrilw for them
and Invokes (iod's and thn saint's all
healing power to aid him. In some rases
months must clne, while in others tho
cure aro almost instantaneous.
Today when Miss Parks, of Philadel
phia, was carried into the church she was
a twitching, helpless woman. Hor ail
ment w as epiliqisy. Father Mollinger told
her that iu three days sho would bo en
tirely cured. She arose, from her couch
and walked away with scarcely any por
ceptiblo evidence of her sickness,
A lady from New York was led Into the
church totally blind. Sho walked from
the edillca slone aud unaided, and could
distinguish many objects. The ower of
speech wss restored to a lady who has not
spoken a word for two years. A young
girl hobbled up to the rail on her crutches,
lather Mollinger prescribed for and
worked with her awhile, took the crutches
from hnr and she walked away.
