The Bryan Silver Club.
There was quite a noticeable difference
in the enthusiasm tbat was displayed at
tbe Bryan club meeting last evening and
that of tbe Catron meeting. At tbe former,
the room was not large enough to bold the
fourth part of those who came and every
inch of standing room was taken. O. A.
Larrazolo made a speech tbat fir clearness
of reasoning, familiarity with tbe subject
and eloquent delivery, has not been equal

spoke here, last January. The young man
surprised every person prtsent with his
ability as a speaker. , , . . i

ALL SOULS' DAT.
Monday will be All 8ou!s' day, a festival
of tbe Catholic church. The object of it Is
by prayer and almsgiving to alleviate tbe
sufferings ot tbe souls in purgatory.
It was first instituted in tbe monastery of
Clungy, 933, and the following Is the ac
count given of its origin: A pilgrim re
turning from the holy land was compelled
by a storm to land on a rooky Isle, some
where between Sicily and Tbessoloolca.'
Here be found a hermit wbo told him tbat
among tbe cliffs of tbe island was situated
the opening ioto the under world, through
which flames ascended, and tbe groans
tormented by evil angels were audible
Tbe hermit had also frequently heard tbe
complaints and imprecations of tbe devils,
at tbe number of souls that were torn from
them by tbe prayers and alms of tbe pious ;
they were especially enraged, he said,
a'zafnst tbe abbot and moDks of Clungy. The
pilgrim on his arrival acquainted Odilo,
the abbot of Clungy, with what bad cdChe
to bis knowledge, and the abbot thereupon
appointed the day after All Saints to be
kept in bis monastery as an annual festival
for "All Souls." Tbe observance was
quickly adopted by the whole Catholic
By another account, the scene of tbe In
cident is laid In Sicily, and tbe institntion
to tbe year 998.
All Saints' day will be specially ob
served at tbe west side Catholio cburch,
tomorrow, by Rev, Fr. Defouri. There
will be solemn mass at 10 o'clock, with
sermon on the saints and souls -in pqrga
tory. There will be solemn vespers at 2 p,
m,, and at 4 p. m., the Benediction ot tbe
Blessed Sacrament, followed by vesDers
for the dead. v ;
On Monday morning at 8:30 o'clock.
