the result, ol borrowing money on inter

acquitting Father Purcell'of any dishou
eaty, the trustees attribute the disaster to
"bad investments, shrinkage in value,
niisplaced conhdeuce, and unbusiiies>
like management."
buch is the record of one of the most
disastrous failures, In both its direct and
indirect results, that litis occurred since
the panic of 1873. In reflecting on its sad
story it is interesting to note how, in
1865, Archbishop Purcell issued circulars
to the clergy of his diocese touching the
management of Church property, in
which he pointed out mat, while the pas
tor of a congregation, iu the discharge of
of hiH duty, "may b« ad vautageousiy as
sieved" by lay counsellors, "the evils
done the Church In the United States in
times past, and the scandals giveu by lay
trustees, have caused the Holy See aud
all the true fneuds of religiou to look
with disfavor on the appoiutmeut of lay
men as managers of Church funds." lie
furthur pointed out that laymen are sim
ply the assistants of the pastor in the care
of the temporal a flairs of the congrega
tion." This, as we have said, was in 1863,
and, in the light, of the facts as develop
ed, the Archbishop was at that very time
conducting a savings bunk for his par
ish ''»ihth in a manner quite as reckless as
* imagined. While acquitting both
•!ibishop and his brother of any
conscious dishonesty, it would be an easy
matter to indulge in over-much senti
ment concerning bis misfortunes. Any
sympathy should be bestowed upon the
unfortunate« who lose by his utter lack
of fores ght and bu>iues sagacity. One
of the first essentials in dealing with af
fairs is for a man to know when his

know this, and yet to assume tasks for
which one is wholly unfitted, is to be
come guilfy of recklessness bantering on
criminality. The moral to be drawn from
the-»« pitif ul revelations is that tue good

perience, Is as much out of place in man

as in politics,— Record.

For some time previous to the duel and
before any suspicion of trouble existed it
was well known to her fiienda that she
was strongly attached to Hinds, whose
family was opposed to their intimacy. It
was remarked by some ladies and gentle
who were urgent at a lar n* nrivate
mm, who wcw (présentât^ a lar^e private
excursion of a W » si End soual club hist

James seemed on the afternoon of that
day when Mr. Hinds reached the grounds
where the excursionists were and joined

would ultimately make a in itch, and
those who knew'Miss James certainly
never anticipated the terrible results that
f.,n., w
The allray on Baltimore strei t, with
its sad disclosure, was crushing in its ef
fects upon both families, the parents of
Mr. Hinds seeming 10 lake the matter to
heart almost as keenly, it that were pos
sible, as the p «rents of the unfortunate
young lady, who has ever since been in
the most pitiable condition. Her mind
constantly reverted to t he man whom
she loved, and during periods of delirium
which were not frequent, her cries for
him were agonizing. Her mother, who
appears to liavd grown older by y«ars
duringt.be weeks that have elapsed since
the exposure, endeav«jred to procure a
visit from Hinds, but did not succeed.
The duel between Hinds and young
James took place at. about eleven o'clock
on the morning of December 22, in the
basement of Robert Moore & Co.'s store,
corner of Baltimore and Hanover streets,
where Den wood B. Hinds, one of the par
ticipants, was employed. The assailant
was William M. James, a brother of the
unfortunate lady, and a clerk in the em
ploy of the shoe bouse of Buck, Heme
bower «& Co. Botli were members of the
Fifth regiment. James' reputation had
always been that of a quiet, geutlemanly
and well behaved young man; but the
