149 THE INDIAN ADVOCATE
went to bed anywhere without praying every bead on his rosary." The conductor then found an opportunity to talk to our little Catholic hero, telling him that he had witnessed his conduct the night before and proffering words of compli ment and encouragement. In return for the confidence established came the simple, candid, child-like confession. Here's the story. When leaving his home in England for the present thea trical tour he had promised his father ard mother that he would say his rosary every night that the Blessed Mother might protect him and sen 1 him back to them safely. And then, quickly adding. "I haven't yet broken my promise." That's why he was on his knees in prayer in the slee per. He was saying his rosary, keeping his promise. Don't you think him a little Catholic hero? Don't you admire his manliness? How beautiful how touching! What an inspi ring lesson the little fellow teaches to other boys, and, may it not be truthfully added, to many of his Catholic seniors? MATRIMONY. Some marry when they cease to roam And have a yearning for a home. Others yet, to save their purse, Will marry when they need a nurse. And some will wed for pounds and pence Their number seems to be immense. And there are those who for position Will marry any imposition. And some for simple love are wed; May blessings rest upon their head! Henry Bartlett Morrill.
