dig up the few shares of stock that a dot

The new cardinal will sing the pontifical
mass of the day, and Archbishop Kya.i
of Philadelphia will preach the sermon.
Every member of the hierachy who can
possibly da so will be present.
During this mass the Corriere de Gabi

trimmed with gold; white buckskin
breeches, jack boots and spurs, and hel
met with long horsehair plume, and gold
sabertasche, will be the most picturesque
figure in the sanctuary, guarding h's
trust until it is placed on the head or

he will make a short tour of the count v>

the new cardinal, and has all his eu

Cardinal Gibbons ,on the day after the
ceremony, will leave Baltimore with the
Rev. William A. Fletcher, his secretary,
for his contemplated trip abroad. He
will sail from New York on the Trave

Just how the company learned about
it no one knows. Mr. Gould avers he
did not tell, and Miss Morris is equally
sure she never let the secret escape.
At any rate it soon became whispered
about that Miss Morris had won a fortune
in Wall street. Lillie Brink was one
of the very first to put the story in words.
"Vera didn't tell me," she said to a
group of eager listeners, "but I have it
