Bishop Itapp, of Cleveland, ()., va9 a
French gentleman of the old -chool. He
came of gooi blood, and was early ed i
cated for the sacred orders of the priest
hood. Ills advance was rapid, and In
1850 ho was a bishop in that church which

on earth. lie had a pleasant diocese at
Cleveland, and a nock who almost wor

Edwin Cowics, of Cleveland, was a inid-cle-agcd
journalist, at the heal of the
baiiy Leadtr. H was a ni m of family
sons and daughters whom he loved,
but not to denionstrativentss. His char
acter was peculiar. Eccentric, of strong
convictions, and of stronger prejudices,
he was very passionate, and quite as Illog
ical. Among his children was a daugh
ter, Helen. Then a mere child, she after
"ward grew to be a prepossessing, comely
young woman. FranK, susceptible and
coullditig, she trusted every one, nod sel
dom a lowed her suspxlons" to force inves
tigation. VIKST VICTORY HY DEATH.
Her father was a politician from the
nature of his profession, an I on a certain
opportunity made war on Bishop Rapp's
church for political effect. He Intended
no serious harm to the church "when he
began, but the warmth of political di.s.
cmsion carried him into a personal at
tack on the venerable divine. I'D is was
resented, and In the wilJuess of charge
and counter-charge the bishop was ac
cused of i aving an underground passage
between his pulaco and a home of an or
der of the sisters of the church. An in
ference was made of wrong doing be
tween the parties. Dissension grew In
the church lrora these attacks, and at the
sif lit o1 his divided flock tho thought of
ids tarnished name, the g jod, white
haired man went down in sorrow to a
VIGILANCE OK HOME.
The restless eye at Korae dwelt on
Cleveland. There was a consultation at
the Vatican. The three names sent to
the Holy See-for the selection of a new
Bishop of Cleveland were ail rejected
an'nnusual thing. Richard Gilmour, an
active Scotchman in the primj of lite,
who had been converted from austere
Calvanlsm, was selected for tbo vacant
mitred hat. He had, as priest, made a
reputation which had traveled on and on
until It reached far-away Borne. He
looked upon the grave of hisolllcial pr.-d--ecessor,
thought of the advice he had re
ceived from the eternal Italian city, and
his course was unalterably fixed. There
was no hurry. Time and the vigilance
of tbo eternally faithful were sure to do
RENEWAL OF TflK CONTENTION.
Editor Edwin Cowles was eager to try
tho mettjle of bis specially-selected oppo
nent. He approached him carefully,
guarding even where an attack wa3 least
expected, but no defense was made. He
grew bo der, still there came no response.
In the belief of his own security he at last
left himself exposed, and at once came a
counter from Bishop Gllmour, which fair
ly flayed the editor alive. The old war
was now on, and was waged Incessantly
by Editor Cowles. Tho Bishop took his
own time and opportunity to reply, butit
was a broadside every time he took up
bis pen. Defeated by the Bishop the
angered editor made various attacks on
the helpless Sisters of Charity, Little Sis
ter of tho Poor and like orders, and
plotted with politicians continually to
crush the church In America. D stant
Rome felt these ungallant stabs and
winced. The fertile brain of the church
perfected Its plans In tho quietness of Its
closets, and Its secret emissaries went
on their work.
TI1K PLOTTING REGIX3.
Miss Helen Cowles was of a romantic
nature. F'rora her mother she Inherited
a world of tenderness and acuto affec
tion. Tho servants In the household had
been changed. The new ones were pos
sessed of many thrilling works of fact and
fiction portraying the wonderful self
denials, self-sacrifices and glorious
achievements of young ladies In the great
conflicts engaged In by the Romau Church.
Theso, accidentally or otherwise, were
especially adapted to gain and hold the
attention of a mind like Miss Helen's.
They were left where she could not but
see them. She borrowed them and read
them ia secret, earing the wrath of her
father, did ho know the kind of literature
she was perusing. The supply remained
retxhaustlble. Tho rewards portrayed
grew more magnificent. The romantic,
dramatic ard tragic In the great church's
hist iry were paluted hi theso works in
the w rmest colors. The leaven was
doing I s w rk. The beautiful Miss
Cowles never ceased to ask her servaut
companions about the Roman Church and

great organ in a mild toue, sent forth the

of voices so swoet that it seemed as
if angels must surely be singing a beav

Trembling with awe and pleasure, Miss
Cowles emerged into the moonlight just
as the last notes of the choral hymn were
dying away Inside. Nothing could havj

sacred pledge of secrecy tbeso visits
were repeated. LilUe by little tbe ma

She began meeting a select few of the
best young Catholic society of Cleveland.
Amoug these was a young man of wealthy

Quietly Miss Cowios took the solemn
vows that made her a member of the
Roman Church, and thi war between
bishop and editor still continued and
grew iu heat. The association of Helen
and her young mule frieud, though they
were not formally cngag-d, became ob
served, and was discussed l.i young so
ciety some time before It reached the ed
itor's tars. When It did tbe wronged
parent was furious. He deprived his
daughter of outdoor liberty, save lu com

She was fi ri iJden tj enter a Catholic

the garb of a Catholic divine. Father
Schultz was frequently lu Miss Helen's
company, aad soon leirned from
her the contemplated path of her
travels. It was an easy mat
ter for him to modify her
route to meet bis own views, as he was
familiar w th all the avenues of Eu
ropean tourists. He turned up occasion

ever had some European Ir end of good
family to introduce. These were In

and Miss Cowles became familiar wiU

noblest devotees of the Rjman church In

Ikr lovable ways won to her tbe scion
of one of the oldest aristocratic houses
of that country. The young Marquis
F'ontenay, wealthy, handsome and very
devout, was thoroughly captivated with
her person and mind, and when the
strange story of the cause of her presence
In Europe was artfu ly revealed to him by
F'atber Schultz, he grew wild to claim
her as his own. His family was adverse
to the union in the begtnnlns, but the
mild, frauk, sweet ways of Helen soon
won them, and in their hearts they deep
ly p tied her as they became couversaut
with her history. The Marquis, after a
respectful lapse of time, declared
his affection and asked Helen's In
return. With a directness which was a
striking beauty of her chatacter she
confessed a reciprocal love, and accepted
the proposal of marriage. A father's,
stern refusal and his presefcee In Europe'
was the reply given to a request for his
blessing. A second time was the poor
girl separated from a man whom she had
In sorrow learned to love better than all
others ou earth. Arrived at her Cleve
land home, she became a recluse. At

him one cruel message that he must
learn to forget her, as her father's refu

Under such conditions It is not to be
wondered at that her h alti broke com
DECIDES TO TAKE A NUN'S VEIL.
Frightened at her falllug condition,
she was again sent on an ocean trip.
Arrived in t:urope, she met many of her
old friends, but the Marquis Fontenay,
In despair, had joined the French army
and gone off to the Asiatic colonies. She
brooded over her wrongs, only flndinz a
slight consolation In her religious de
votions. Naturally, she sought
greater refugo where she got the
little that was allowed her. She
resolved to take the sacred veil that
would forever shut her out from a world
which certainly had been cruel to her.
Rome reverently held out to her an invit
ing hand. Withiu tho imposing and sa
cred walls of St. l'eter's, in the presence
of tho Ho'y Father, l'ius IX, she took
tho Hi st preparatory ceremony looking to
bcr becoming a recluse. In that grand,
classic edifice, with her face looking to
Heaven and her haud on the Holy Book,

By soma unknown person a notice of
her actions and Intentions were hurried
by cable to her father In Ohio. The Instru
ments between Cleveland and the White
House clicked sharp, fa t and long that
day. From the Department of State
William M. Evarts' d spatches went thick
across the Atlantic to the United States
Ministers and Consuls in England, France,
Switzerland and Italy. A great Govern

orders of President Hayes, was quickly
put in motlou to defeat the pre

editor. Editor Cowles and wife took the
first steamer, and before Helen knew of
their alarm (they were at her side.
From fair Italy she was harried to stern
Albion, and a contest between parental
authority and church obligations begau.
It was persuasive, dogmatic and man
datory In turn on one side, but ever un
flinching and determined on tho other.
On the condition that her devotions
would be untrammolod Heljn would re
turn. Th'.s was denied. The father
came back alone. Mother and daughter
srossed over to France.

In those journeys they met a William
romeroy, or new jersey, who was ootag
good-Iooklug or Industrious and had no
ambition la life. He wooed Helen. She
had no heart for his attractions. Sho
bad suffered so much that sho had be
come Indifferent to lite and Its objects.
She accepted his favors as a relief from
consuming sorrow. Hi proposed. To
forever prevent her becoming a nun, she
was urged to accept and did so. The
day after the mournful marrlago her
husband's father died and she fouud her
legal pr lector penniless.
STEALING A CHANCE TO WORSHIP.
Again was this woman's face turned
homeward. Her llnanclal condition
forced her once more to become an in
mate of her father's homo. Religious
contentions were renewed, and she wrote
fraakly about them to her Father Con
fessor. Sho was broken In spirit and
health, and could no longer resist.
Whllo deprived of religious consolation
in her own city she managed occasionally
to visit the sanctuaries of the churches
of surrounding vl lages, whither sho
went ostensibly to visit friends.
Meantime the war between her father
and her spiritual adviser broke, forth
with renewed fury. The Bishop was
charged with religious Intolerance and
curtailing tho liberties of the parish
ioners. The editor offered the prelate
his paper to defend himself. He wrote
pernaps the most caustic document of
the whole controversy. The editor
refused to publish It, as promised.
F'ather Houcfc, the Bishop's pri
vate secretary, was forcibly assailed and
rudely ejected from the building when he
went to Inquire why. The Bishop's re
ply subsequently appeared In the Penny
l'ress and CattvAic Universe. It was cruel
as It was crushing. Editor Cowles was
arraigned as a hypocrite, in that he de
nied bis own daughter Helen her relig
ious liberties, and by his persecutions
had ruiued her health. It waa even In
timated that he would be responsible for
her death did it occur from mental pros
tration. SICK ROOM 8CK.1K.
Editor Cowles was frantic. He fairly
rain d libel suits, civil and criminal, on
the rival editors and the bishop. Under
the intense excitement Mrs. Cowle -Pom-eroy's
condition became critical. It was
decidod to take her anti-mortem state
ment. The mental weakness of her hus
band left her In some respects a widow.
Her father and the attorneys gathered in
her sick room. Her physician sat by her
bed, bis Angers on her pulse. She had
admitted writing the letters to her spirit
ual adviser. "Were their statements cor
rect?" This was the vital question.
She besittted. Did sho deny she con
demned herself, defamed her priest, and
did her church an injustice. Did she af
firm she not only condemned but crushed
her father; she looked at him and he at
her for a full minute. Her pulse beat
quick and fast, her slight and emaciated
frame trembled, aud a slight tint came to
her pallid face. She refused to answer.
The Bishop's lawyer threatened contempt
of coart proceedings. The father sprang
to his feet in a rage and shook his fist
uf?der the attorney's nose. It was a ter
rible scene, and the doc .or only brought
quiet by insisting that Mrs. l'omeroy's
life depended upon It. A kind judge
subsequently protected her in her silence.
DEATH AT LAST BRINGS PEACE.
A slight recovery enabled her to go
again to Europe, wh re her husband had
received a consulship appointment, but
the germs of consumption were fatally
at work. Within a year she breathed her
last at Florence, Italy. Tho news of her
death was a terrible blow to her n w
broken-down father. The ol bishop's
eyes were wet with tears when he learn . d
the sad news.
Her body now tests in consecrate I soli
at Cleveland, the Catholic emblem of the
cross marking Its sepulchre. The mis
guided father and tbe unrllnchlng bishop
have, for a time at least fit is to be
hoped forever,) burled their enmity to
mingle their tears over their child by
blood of one, by the church of the other.
'Tis a tit time for mutual repentance.
