An Oregon Priest Goi4to Minister to
the Leper Exilealn Molokai.
From the Catlu/ie Sentinel.
For some time posy it bus been pretty
genarally known thattke Rev. L. L. Con
rardy, of Umatilla /reservation, had de
cided to go to the reUf of Father Damien,
the apostle of the kpers in the Island of
Moloka, Sandwich Islands. The reverend
father, having reseived permission fiom
Archbishop Gr<jss has bjen waiting for
some time to boj relieved as Indian mission
ary on the r sta-TAtion; and now that his
place is supplied by two young priests, he
is here, in tnis'e.'ty, en route for Molokai,
the home of the poor lepers, to whom he
proposes to cdasecrate, we may add sacrifice,
his life.
Earner (jmrardy is a countryman of
Father Dahien, having been born in the
city of Luff*, Belgium, where also received
his early dTucation. Father Conrardy is a
typo of Ihoso intrepid, fearless souis who
court sai/fico and peril to further tho in
terests of religion and give glory to God.
ImpelleJby the missionary spirit, he gave
up a las{e parish, to wbicn he had lieen ap
pointei/mimedirtely after his ordination, to
duvotyhiauolf to foreign missions. Going
to Pa|is to the celebrated seminary which
has tpr more than 2')o years supplied Ind a,
Japun and China withs > many missionaries
andsiariyrs, he remained there sometime,
and in 1871 was assigned to the mission at
Pfudielierry, in Soutneru India, where he
labored nearly three years under the killing
lent of the tropical sun, and enduring all
kinds of privations. His health failing, he
was advised to go to a temperate climate,
and chose to cast his lot among the Indians
of Oregon, where ho arrived in 1874. He
was placed in charge of the Indian tribes
on the Umatilla reservation by tho saintly
Archbishop Blanchet, where he has re
mained ever since.
But Father Conrardy, whose ambition
has always been to take’the worst and most
difficult place, was not satisfied. It was in
187(5 that he, having heard of the heroic un
dertaking of Father Damien among the
lepers of Molokai, conceived the idea of be
coming his companion. As early as 1881 he
was accepted for that mission, but, owing
to the scarcity of priests in this archdiocese,
he was constrained to postpone his depart
ure for this field till a more favorable time.
Letters received from Father Damien re
cently show that the leper colony has in
creased to 1,500 souls, ami they are arriving
in large numbers, sometimes as many as
thirty a week.
It is well known that Father Damien has
fallen a victim to his charity. He writes
Father Conrardy that, disease having set
tled in his hands, he will soon be unable to
celebrato mass, and there will be no one to
break the bread of life to these poor creat
ures. In order to hasten to his relief Father
Conrardy gives up a farewell visit which he
contemplated paying to his family in
Europe. A short time ago Father Cou
rardy was offered a fine parish in the Ar -
gentine Republic, but that did not fill his
ideal of self-sacrifice. The reverend gentle
man leaves the city next Sunday, and will
soon be among the stricken ones of Molokai.
We bespeak for him the prayers of all.
A German journal gives the following
process for making blotting paf>er able to
give copies of letters: Boak 4 parts of the
best clear glue in a mixture or 5 parts of
pure water and 3 parts of ammonia liquor
until the glue is thoroughly softened. Warm
it fill the glue is dissolved and rdd 3 parts
of granulated sugar and add 8 parts of
glycerine, stirring the whole well and let
tne it come to the boiling point. While
the mixture is hot paint it with a broad
brush on clean white blotting paper until
the latter is thoroughly soaked and a thin
coating remains on the surface. Let it dry
for two or throe days and it will be r< a >y
for use. The writing or sketch to be copied
is done with the usual aniline ink on writ
ing paper. Before transferring it to the
blotting paper wet the latter with a sponge
or bn sh and clean water and allow it to
stand for one or two minutes. Place the
written side on tho blotting paper and press
out the air bubbles. After a tew moments
of gentle pressure remove the written pa
per. A number of copies can then be made
after the manner of the “graph” processes
from the blotting paper. When the im
pressions grow faint dampen the surface of
the blotting ] aper again.
