the Protestant Episcopal Convention

rescinded a provision which would have
required parties to a propsed marriage
to show medical certificates testifying
to their physical and mental health.
The first vote was 240 for and 215

This provision was opposed by Rose

but unsuccessfully, a provision of the
proposed canon which provides for
public and private instruction on the
nature of responsibilities of marriage.
Eight of nine impediments to the
marriage listed in the proposed canon
Were adopted without debate.

headed the procession.
They found the church closed and
woke up the sacristan by loud knocks
at the door. The sacristan, seeing the
crow 4 at that hour of the night, said
it was no time to hold a procession
and they hsd better go home and sleep.
With that he refused to let them enter
the church and closed his dcor. The
crowd became noisy and marched to the
parish house, where they woke up the
1 parish priest. But he also said it was
1 r.ot a time to hold a procession, and
I he refused to let them have the image
cf the Redeemer.
The crowd thereupon forced the doors
of the church and with prayers took
the image from the altar and started
on the procession to the shrine, return
ing only toward morning. But for all
that no rain came and the news vender
was arrested by the police.
But a few hours after he was put in j

I peasant in great excitement, demanded
