Yesterday was observed as the Feast of the Sacred Heart in the Cath? olic Church. The services began with mass at C o'clock a. m., with Rev. Fath? er Dougherty as celebrant. This was followed by another mass at 7 tu m., at which a large number of the con? gregation received Holy Communion. Most of these were members of the League of the Sacred Heart. Rev. Father Frioll was celebrant at thid mass. The benediction of the Most Bl< ssed Sacrement was held at 5 p. m.. at which the orphans of St. Mary's Asylum sang the Latin hymn, "Tnntem Ergo" and "O Snlutarls." A large con gregatlon was present at this service. The Leugne of the Sacred Heart ex? ists in more than forty countries; it has about 55,000 centers, over 5.000 of which are in the United Slates, and the 2r..noo.000 associate members, about 3,000,000 of whom are In this country, aggregated by parishes, communities and schools, are united so closely that every month they can barn, through the periodicals of this vast league, what their fellow associates are praying for ar.d what the Pope specially recom? mends to their prayers. The activity Of this league Is so ex? tensive that It Is Interesting to learn bow It originated. in the seventeenth century Sister Marguerite Mary, n pious nun of the Order of the Visitation, had a vision, In which, according to the tradition, Christ appeared t<> her, at Pa ray le Monial, and promised many favors to those who would render this special devotion in His honor. I The nun told her confessor who, on June 21, l?7r>, was the first to nsecrate 1 himself to the Saviour according to the rules prescribed to Sister .Marguerite Mary. The wonderful spread of the de? votion. || Is claimed. Justifies the con lldenc.o express* d by the nun, who, it is said, declared: "If I should see the whole world violently opposed to th's devotion. I should never despair of see? ing It established, for I have had the assurance of It. from the lips of my Saviour Himself." Such Is the story of the origin of this organization, which now nourishes In a most remarkable manner all over the world, and through which, at the re? quest of Pope Leo XIII., the closing days of the nineteenth century were solemnly consecrated to-day.

C, Observer re? produces the Virginian-Pilot's sketch of this gentleman, with its own intro? duction as follows: "A splendid Confederate monument, chicly the r.t--ult of the work of Col. Walter H. Taylor, was dedicated at Norfolk on Memorial Day. As Col. Taylor, who was Lee's Chief of Staff from the time he succeeded Joe John? ston in iommand of the tinny of North, era Vilginia until the close at Appo mattox, was the Great Commander's right arm in that memorable period, the subjoined sketch of hit* life, which we reprodnca from the Norfolk Vir? gin;.! n-Pilot, will n.terest many a vet eran of the Lost Cause. He was a model chief of staff, whose youth and modesty and slender frame were an attractive setting for the genius with which be mastered his onerous and conspicuous duties."

The Ladles' Aid Society of Queen Street M. Church held a lawn party on the grounds of the residence of Rev. S. C. Hatcher, on Wood street, last night.

In its Issue of "Wednesday the Vir glnlan-l'ilot outlined the big sale of Chesapeake and Ohio real estate that was on foot. Yesterday Mr. G. li. Wall, of Richmond, of the real estate depart? ment of the Chesapeake and Ohio Com? pany, returned to Norfolk and was closeted with members of the syndicate of capitalists who were earnestly de? sirous of securing this valuable prop? erty. The sale was concluded at the real estate office of Messrs. B. II. Jones & Co., In the Columbia building, and last night Mr. Wall left for Newport News to attend to important matters there, leaving Newport News for Richmond this morning via the Chesapeake and Ohio. PRICE ABOUT $170,100. This property fronts SM feet on Granby street and about 100 on Taze? well street. The company asked $175, 000 for the property hereinafter de? scribed. The exact figure accepted was not disclosed last night, but Is said to be about $170,400. This figure Is on a basis of MG0 per front foot for the Granby street frontage and $125 per front foot for that on Tazewell street. MR. CAMPE GETS A EOT. Soon after the syndicate had picked up Its big plum from the bargain coun? ts r, Mr. Abram E. Campe, of the D. LrOWenberg Root ami Shoe Company, took one ->f the Granby street lots at $475 per Omit foot, and sales were also made o ?'her Individuals at better prices, ?me lot going for $500 per front foot. Among others who are stated as early buyers are Held Bros., one lot, and the Tazewell estate, two lots. THE PROPERTY SOLD. The property sold is described as fol? lows: Beginning on Brooke street, 120 feet from Granby street, easterly 120 feet to Granby, thence northerly .151 fict on Granby (to this sum add 40 feet for width of Tazewell street), thence westerly 25S feet, thence southerly 114 feet, thence westerly to Boush street, thence southerly 13 feet, thence easterly along Tazewell, to within 120 feet of Granby sire* t, thence southerly to place of beginning. ABOUT TEN DAYS TO CLOSE. It is estimated that about ten days from date will be consumed in the In? vestigation of the title to the realty, be? fore deeds will pass. This will, how? ever, not delay sales, as there Is pro? bably no doubt that the title to this bonanza property Is absolutely with? out Haw. It is understood that more sales of lots to local people will be made this week nnd next and that these sales are not for speculation purposes, but the purchasers desire the lots as the sites of business blocks, some of which arc to be erected In the near fu? ture. VALUES STEADILY INCREASING. The way In which Granby street property has rapidly increased of late k; not surprising to many who have kept their eyes on the tendency of busi? ness that way. East night one of Nor? folk's shrewdest capitalists, a gentle? man who is one of the largest Individ? ual property holders of this city, when interviewed regarding the sale, stated that he expected the Granby street lots to advance to about $S00 per front foot within a few weeks. RETAIL TRADE ON UPPER FLOORS When Interviewed last night on the subject of the sale and character of the structures to bo erected oci the Granby street lots. Mr. D. Lowonberg. who was Instrumental in financing the deal, said that the tendency of retail trade now In the larger cities Is to seek the second, third and even higher floors of business blocks, desirably lo? cated and built with the view of ac? commodating general retail trade. There are a few examples of this In Norfolk to-day, especially In the furni? ture line, and it is Mr. Lowenberg's idea that the wise investor In Nor? folk business structures will erect buildings with this end in view. With the fine modern elevators, space is an? nihilated and the tenth floor of a building is practically as good as the first door, so far as convenience Is con? cerned. LEACHE-WOOD SITE NEXT. It was rumored last night that the site of Leache-Wood School may be the rext piece of Granby street realty to change hands, and that a strong syn? dicate of local capitalists is desirous of securing it. with the expectation that the advance of business up Granby street will make it, ere many years, a most valuable site for business uses. I.efl *"or S?w York. Mr. Peter Wright, president of the Virginia Electric Light Company, left last evening for New York, preparatory to his bidding adieu to this city as his home, During Mr. Wright's stay In Norfolk he has made a vast number of friends, not alone by his upright ac? commodating and businesslike deal? ings, but also by his genial and cour? teous manner; so much so that we can? not help but regret his departure. While hero Mr. Wright made a great many Improvements In the electric light plant here, and we sincerely hope to have Mr. Wright with us once again, in the meantime, we wish him great success in his new field, wherever that may be.
