Inspector of schools Is assisted by this guild. Children
of the poor receive two full meals gratis In
Swiss schools, nrsd If the mothers of these children
bo employed at outside work until a lat.o
hour the guild takes charge of the little ones.
Through the Influence of this guild a law was
passed last year by which a guardian Is appointed
for illegitimate children and this guardian ea'i

also she, too. heroines a ward of this guardian. A
similar organization to tho Zurich guild < \ists in

of noral obligations Is traced easily and
extradited. To women is due the large number of
temperance restaurants existing in Sv. ltzeriand.

church in the world not dedicated by human
hands; (lie legend Is that Christ himself performed
the act.
lCinsledeln and vicinity were known as the Sombre
Forest away back in the eighth century, when
a holy hermit, Melnrad, the son of Prince Herthold
of Ilohenzollern, built for himself a cell in which
ho lived many years. lie was murdered by bri
KiimiH hi wiioin no nan oirerod Hospitality and
who hail hoped to find concealed treasures; all
they got was a chalice and some books. Itavons,
whose evil characteristics had been disarmed by
tho gentle hermit and had beeomo his companions,
pursued tho assassins to Zurich, screaming
and picking at tho villains' heads. Tho strange
actions of tho irate birds attracted tho townspeople's
attention and they questioned tho murderers,
who, terrified, acknowledged their crime. In tho
Kinsiodoin Abbey coat of-arms me two ravens.
When tho noble edifice was erected ovor tho
hermit's cell tho walls of the coll were enclosed
in black marble and made into a chapel. It stands
in the nave of the church and, while plain in style,
tho richness of tho material and the simplicity of
design make It Impressive. On tho altar stands
tho renowned statute of the Mack Madonna,

of Abbot Eberhard to consecrate tho now

the Kmpress Adelaide and a large retinue of clergy
and courtiers. As they knelt preparatory to boginning
the ceremony suddenly the chapel becamo
