Miss Mary Mclnerney Leaves the
World and Its Vanities and Joins
the Sisterhood of St. Joseph.
Tuesday evening at the college of the
sisters of St. Joseph was an interestiLg
event in the reception into the sister
hood of Miss Mary Mclnerney, one of
Abilene's most talented young ladies.
For a long time Miss Mary has been
preparing herself for this step, accord
ing to the ordinances of the Catholic
church, but only yesterday did she take
upon herself the vows which bind the
votary to a life of self-abnegation and
labor for others. The young lady who
has just foresworn the world and its
vanities enters now upon what is called
the novitiate and which extends over
two years. During that time the novice
is only on probation and is not permit
ted by the church to take the final
vows until its expiration. Then, if
satisfied with the work, allegiance to
the order is promised for a year at a
time; but so strong is the influence of
such a life and so infatuated are the
members of the sisterhood usually
with it, tint it is extremely seldom that
one once entering ever withdraws.
Miss Mclnerney will be a valuable
acquisition to the society as she has
been carefully educated and is a thor
ough, conscientious student. She
graduated at the Leavenworth Acad
emy m lsbo ana last year graduated
from the Quincy, (111.) Conservatory of
Music. She is a charming musician
and has lead the Catholic choir since
her return from school. Father Leary
says he has never seen her extraordi
nary skill ii' managing a choir as well
as her superior musical ability sur
passed. That she is a lady of remark
able piety is evident from the fact of
her devoting her life to religious duties
She will not be alone among the
novices of the college as several have
already joined from Junction City and
Manhattan and others are preparing.
Twelve of the sisters in charge of
Mother Superior .Bernard will be lo
cated here and conduct the St. Joseph's
college during the coming year. Miss
Mclnerney under her new name which
has not yet been decided upon, will
have charge of the musical department.
The sisters make their home at the
college and wear the habiliments of
nuns, but are allowed by the Mother
Superior generous privileges, such as
yisiting their friends, etc.
Miss Mclnerney is a daughter of Ab
ilene's well-known merchant, T. C.
Mclnerney, whose family now loses a
member valued and loved. But though
they may mourn her depaiture from
the circles of home, they are happy in
the thought that she will spend the
years in serving the Master with a de
votion and a self-sacrifice that it is
given to but few to exhibit,

Burton for Representative.
Hon. J. R. Burton today announces
himself as a candidate for the Legisla
ture from this Representative district.
Mr. Burton represented the district in
the Legislature from 1882 to 1886,
nd during that time he won for him
self a State reputation as a statesman,
orator and parliamentarian second to
none in Kansas. During every cam
paign since 1S7S when Mr. Burton first
reached Abilene, he has been found an
earnest, devoted advocate of Republi
can principles and Republican candi
dates. In each campaign he has been
invited to make speeches in every part
of the State, and he has responded to
the satisfaction of the Republicans all
over Kansas. And now the State Cen
tral Committee, of the State of Maine,
in which the first great contest of this
campaign will be fought, sent to Kan
sas for her ablest and best orators to
come and assist in rolling up an over
whelming majority for the Republican
party in that State, and among the very
few who received an invitation to come
to that State is the lion. J. R. Burton,
who left this morning for Portland,
Maine, where he will join in the first
great meeting of the campaign with
Hon. J. G. Blaine and Hon. Warner
Miller, of 2sTew York. This fact
shows that Mr. Burton is not only
appreciated as an orator and
speaker, but that his reputation
extends throughout the Nation.
Mr. Burton is thoroughly familiar with
the public men and public measures of
the State of Kansas. He is probably
as well qualified to legislate upon any
issues that will likely come before the
Legislature in January next as any
other man that can be selected. It is
certain that if he is elected, his in
fluence will be felt in the Legislature
as it has always been in the past, and
the District can be assured that if he is
elected that its interests will be in safe
hands. We predict for Mr. Burton
the unanimous support of the Republi
cans of the 68th Representative dis
trict. Don't forget Saturday's ball game,
White City vs. Abilene. A good time
and some good playing.

Among the county officers to be
elected this fall is to be a County Super
intendent of Public Instruction. The
indications are that the present incum
bent, J. S. Ford, will be renominated
and re-elected practically without oppo
sition. Mr. Ford has filled the office
during the past term most acceptably
to the people of the county. He is not
only well-fitted by education for the
place but his conscientious attention to
duty has endeared him and his admin
istration to the public. Mr. Ford is
bringing the schools of this county to a
high standard and he fully deserves the
indorsement of his administration
which will be given him.

My Dear Sir The Republican speaking cam
paign in Maine commences Wednesday,
August 15, and closes Saturday, Septembers.
I extend to you, on behalf of the Republicans
of Maine, a most eordial and camestinvitation
to participate in this contest.
Maine is to be the first State to speak decis
ively in the coming campaign. It is unneces
sary for me to dwell upon the importance of
the struggle here. You can render valuable
if you will
that vou w
welcome from our people. Trusting I may re
ceive an early and lavorable reply, I have the
honor to be
Your obedient servant.
J. H. Man lev. Chairman.
Mr. B. will be present at the open
ing meeting in Portland next Wednes
day night, and will speak almost daily
until September 10th, the date of the
State electiDn. The cal'ing upon Mr.
Burton is a deserved honor to Abilene
and Dickinson county, as well as to one
of Kansas' foremost orators, and proves
that his fame is rapidly becoming na
tional. Mrs. Burton will accompany her hus
band on his trips thiough Maine and
upon thpir return will stop in Washing
ton, D. C, for several weeks visiting
Mr. Burton will probably also assist
in piling up Harrison's majority in In
diana after the Maine contest is over.
The examining board completed its
labors last Thursday.
Three first grade certificates were
issued to the following named teachers:
Fred D. Carmen, of Herington; J. F.
Landis, of Abilene, and Lucy G. Stacy,
Seventeen of the teachers secured
second grades, while seventy of them
only attained a third grade, and forty
five failed entirely.
The many failures and the low grades
made by those who secured certificates
were due largely to the puzzling char
acter of the questions and not to any
deficiency of knowledge on the part of
the teachers. The ladies and gentle
men worked hard during the normal
and their answers to the questions pro
pounded showed that they had a wide
knowledge of the things they are ex
pected to teach; but many of the ques
tions were so irrevalent to the topics at
hand (and this was true especially of
the arithmetic questions) that it would
have required walking encyclopedias to
have successfully handled them. The
examiners say that outside the arith
metic papers the applicants' grades
averaged considerably higher than did
those of last year.
We congratulate those who did suc
ceed and assure those who failed that
they had a good excuse for so doing and
that their reputation as stu Jents and
teachers is in no ways injured by their
failure to secure the desired grade of

McMillen. He was well along in life,
being 81 years old last June. He has
been quite feeble for some time and
his death was practically the result of
old age. Mr. M. had seen much of life
and took a keen interest in the events
of the day but-yet was willing to face
the dread summons of death when it
came to him. (
