airaid of sudden changes of weather;
let no change, hot or cold, keep yoa in

more need for your going out, because
you cat as much on i rainy day as up

of what ought to be thro - n oIl' by ex

sured me she not only had one, but shte
actually had seven devits. I became
Irightenied alnost to death. I firrmly
believed that there was niot thenl o~n
tbe earth a man more sorrowful, terri

what couild be done. He told me Ihe
did not see that an) thing could possi.
bly be done at present. I asked him
in the name of Almighty God and the
blessed Virgin, to do something for
her. He made no answer, which still
increased my alarm. In the perlexi.
ty of. niy"inin.a I had forgotten to
make an offering. i.o I saw at once the
reason he did nothing for her. lie
did not wish to ask me, I suppose; and
knowing it would have no ef1ect if
not paid for, I ofTered hin one doliar
lie asked me if I could give no more.
I told him I had to borrow even that
from one of the men that worked with
me. le told me it was not enough,
but seeing I had no more, and was
poor, he would accept it and cure her.
lie put oin his stole, got his book and
heoly water, got her to kneel down,

It seems that on the 21t''January

that on the Saturday preceding two
fanmibles, consistinig of ten persons,
were inl the act, of maoving from South

They arrived at Oxtard, the county

forty miles i.orthwest tol Lafayette,
with two ox teanins, and well provided
with necessaries fIor the roaid. They
remained there through the storm, aid
on Monday morning resuimed their
journey. Last Tuesday morning a
man passitig over a prairie, only about
live miles from Oxford, camie upon a
sight which filled him with horror.
The carcases of two oxen, Iromn
which the visceral had been removed,
