She directed them to form an army, and
promised them that God would give them'
victory.. When Attila heard this, he was
afraid and dared not attack the city. Thus
Paris was saved through the confidence of
Genevieve in God's mercy. She was then
only fifteen years old. Some time after
this Paris was again besieged, by ChilMeric,
and there was a great famine in the city.
Genevieve was never weary of taking care
of the sick and wounded, and doing allsahe
could for the poor, famishing people. At
last, when it seemed as if noying would
save them from starving, she took'some
boats, and a number of men to assist her,
and, at the risk of being attacked, she suo
ceeded in going up the river to Troyes, and
in getting her boats well loaded with pro
visions, which she. brought back to Paris,
thus saving the lives of many of the peo
ple. However, the city had to surrender,
but Childeric, on account of the great vir
tue of Genevieve, sand at her request,
spared the city. His son Clovis, who is
considered the first King of France, asked
her for her blehping, and promised her that
he would becoe a• Catholic, which prom
ise he afterwards fulfilled. When Gene
vieve died, she was canonized and made
patroness or the city of Paris. Beautiful
churches were built in her honor, and to
this day tapers are constantly burning
around her tombj showing the honor and
vdheration in which she is held. The
beautiful city of Paris has lately been in
vested. Let us hope that God, at the'in
tercession of St. Genevieve, will give to the
inhabitants the grace to serve him better in
PERSEVERANCE OF A YOUNG ScOTon
STUDENT.-A few weeks since it was my
duty as University examiner, to recom
mend a student for the high degree of Doc
tortof Science. This graduate its the son
of a poor Highland crofter, and when a
boy went out to herd cattle during the
summer, from March to October. His
wages for seven months were only 25s.,but
they wetse enough to pay his fees at the
parish school during the winter. It is true
that the school was six miles from his fa
ther's haut, but a walk of twelve miles to
and fro, over a bleak moorland, does not
deter a promising Scotch boy from going
to school. It did deter, however, some of
the farm r's sons in his neighborhood;
so at fd.rteen my young friend took
up a little adventure school to teach
these less hard lads, and in the course
of time he made enough to carry him to
the burg school at Perth, where be extend
ed the knowledge of classieR and mathe
matics which he had begun at the parish
school. Still working, still teaching, still
saving, he fought his way, step by step,
through bursaries and scholarships won by
him, till he became a certificated teacher of
the first class under the Privy Council, a
Master of Arts, a Bachelor of Science in
the University of Ddinburgb, and, as I
have said, a few weeks since it was my
privilege to examine him as a Doctor in
KEEPINO TO ONE THING -We earnestly
entreat every yonog man after he has chosen
his vocation to sdick to it. Don't leave it
because hard blows are to be struck, or
disagreeable work performed. Those who
have worked their way up to wealth and
usefulness do not belong to the shiftless
and unstable class, but may be reckoned
among such as took off their #oats, rolled
up eir uleeves, conquered their prejudice
against labor, and manfully bore the heat
and burden of the day. Whether upon the
old farm, where our fathers toiled diligent
ly, striving to bring.the soil to productive
ness; in the machide shop or factory, or
the thousand other business places that in
vite honest teoll and skill, le1 the motto
ever be: Perseverance and industry. Stick
to cpe thing boys, and you will have success.
SELt RELIANCE.-Thel r is nothing more
likely to result in the successful career of
a young man than confident self-reliance.
It is astonishing how much more a youth
wilaccomplish who relies upon himself,
than one who depends upon others for as
sistance. Having first ascertained the di
rection in, and the mneans by which his ob
ject is to be reached, let him put his whole
energies to work, and with unflaggihg io
dustry press forward. The young man
who, instead of rising at five, sleeps till
seven or eight, and who spetnds his even
ings on the corriers, or in the companion
ship, of those who are waiting in laudable
amubition rarely ever wins a position of
honor or achieves a reputation above that
enjoyed by the common masses.
i auune Op tedeath i Bonl e,:.
She asmended the Pap throne as Be le
the Eleventh.. in 1 . 1s pontificriT was
a short one, for he died nine months after
his elevation. Of him it could not-be said
that "hanores muaont p'ore,," for he never
departed from the simple style of life whieh
he had adopted in the cloister. He enter
tained a thorough contempt for ostentation,
which some one has Justly called-the "lau
ury of pride j and he disliked nothing so
much as affectation and those foolish efforts
to which weakminaded people resort in
order to impose on their neighbors. The
following anecdote, related by Perdinando
*di Castille in his life of Benedict XI., iles,
trates what we-have stated : "The Pontia ,
with his court,, having arrived in Perelia
(says the historian jest quoted), some iudi
viduasa sought Benedict s mothers and had
her arrayed in .smptuous fAnery, in order
that she might t1 duly presented to is
Holiness. Being conduooted into thejpre
ence, the Pope, lastead of recognising her
at onee, said, 'I know that my as teris
living, but I also know that she is toopoor
to drmss like she individual now i/ntfoucbd
to me.' Hearing this, the poor woman re
tired, confsed and mortifld. .ezt e ay
however, afer resaming her usual aspprel
-that whish- she used to wear wheni tend
nlg sheep, she in. preseatd herelf at
the Papal residqle, and requested audienee
of her son. Thiis was speedily grated,
aad Benedict, app*oaching her, said, 'Yea
this is m nother; dresse sahe was yes
terday Idald not identify her. I am her
son; I honor her, and command every one
in my household to do the same.' Bzolio,
the ecclesiastical historian, states that Ben
edict's mother earned her bread as a laun
A somewhat similar anecdote' is-told of
Hadrian IV., by Baronio, in the twelfth
tome of his Annals, A. D. 1159: "A mem
orable example is that which Pope Hadrian
left to posterity. He never bestowed a
single obolus upon his relatives. Nay more,
he allowed his mother to be maintained by
alms of the church of Canterbury, as ap
pears from the following passage in a letter
trom Alexander III. to St. Thomas: 'What
did the great lover of the Church of Can
terbury, Pope Hadrian, do for you-that
Hadrian whose mother is now suffering cold
and want 7' ' Osus water apud veu algore
torquetur, et ineda.' Such conduct was to
be attributed not to despicable parsimony,
but to scrupulous economy of the funds of
the Papal treasury. Hadrian-Nicholas
Breakspeare-granted the bull-by virtue of
which Henry II. invaded Ireland. The
same Hadrian compelled Frederio Barba
rossa to hold his stirrup when dismounting
from his mule, and refused to crown him
