D. 1458 be, From the custody of a most virtuous wE mother, Elizabeth of Austria, be passed to an the guardianship of a devoted master, the rat learned and pious John Dogloes. Thnus b g4imeated from his earliest years by precept hit .ad example, his innocence and piety soon thi peed into the practice of heroic virtue. Ti the age oftwenty.five, sick of a linger- in lag illness, beforetold the hour of his death he amd ehose to die a virgin rather than take HI .eN i11 'and health which the doctors held rai to him in the married state. In an foi 'stphere of luxury and magnificence the Te lvog prince had fasted, worn a hair shirt, cr silptapon the bare earth, prayed by night, coi ad watched for the opening of the church th, doors at dawn. He had become so ten- as dirly devoted to the Passion of our Lord, Nt that at Mass he seemed quite wrapt out of er mimsself, and his charity to the poor and Gi saieated knew no bounds. His love for ear Blessed Lady he expressed in a long Rc i-d beautiful hymn, familliar to us in our on :town tongue. The miracles wrought by his en body after death fill a volunme The blind Sr saw, the lame walked, the sick were healed, th .a dead girl was raised yo life. And once wi the Saint in glory led his countrymen to co battle, and delivered them by a glorious wi victory from the schismatic Russian hosts. be twenty-two ears hi after his death the Saint's tomb in the pe ethedral of Vienna was opened, that the hi holy body might be transferred to the rich so marble chapel where it now lies. The cr plae was damp and the very vault crum- ro bild away in the hands of the workmen; on yet the Saint's body, wrapt in robes of silk, fe was found whole and incorrupt, and -emit- Hi ted a sweet fragrance, which filled the Ai church and refreshed all who were present. th Under his head was found his hymn to our Lady, which he had had buried with him. The following night three young men saw a brilliant light issuing from the open tomb and streaming through the windows of the hi chapel. fr March . ST. JOHN JOSEPH OF THE CROBS. ti Whilst but a schoolboy John Joseph fe urged his companions to hate sin, sternly e1 rebuked careless livers, and gave to the C poor-the better half of his meals. At the w age of sixteen he had left Ischia, his birth- h place, and received the habit of St. Francis t( in Naples, and three years later was sent h by his superiors to erect a new house of It the Aleantarines in Piedmont. In the hope n of leading a solitary life he now retired to A a hermitage at the foot of the Appenninee; e: but his superiors soon summoned him e: thence, and in 1676 he was made first a novice master and then superior, being h at the time only twenty-four years of age. ft He was a man of strong feelings, a fond ti and devoted son, and all the affection of ti his nature was poured out on his brethren d in religion. His faith, his austerities, and h his prayers endowed his charity with mir- o aeulous efficacy. In times of famine he fed J the friars with bread that multiplied and a baherbs that grew at his command. No suf- h fering seemed too trivial for his wonder- v working sympathy; when a poor sick i woman wished for peaches in the depth of 2 winter they were found on a chestunt A branch which the Saint had planted, and a every ill of mind and body was in turn healed at his word. In 1702 his firmness a and charity saved the very existence of his Order, which was imperilled by internal h dissensions. He worked to his life's end, f an e a Zhe br hint; tOl - 1734. The Saint was not content to relieve a others of their cares and sorrows, but at times took them upon himself. A priest, I in great suffering from two ulcers, and t with a painful operation in view, begged his prayers, whereupon St. John Joseph besought God to transfer the malady to himself. He was at once smitten with the t sufferings of the sick man, who was at the i same time freed from his disease. Again, 1 a man plunged in vice made a general con fession to the Saint, who, moved by his contrition, gave him only a light penance, binding himself to fulfill what still remain ed due for his crimes. March, a. ST. COLETTE, VIRGIN. After a holy childhood, Colette joined a society of devout women called the Be guines; but not finding their state ouffic lently austere, she entered the Third Order of St. Francis, and lived in a hut near her parish church of Corbie in Picardy. Here she had passed four years of extraordinary penance, when St. Francis, in a vision, bade her undertake the reform of her Order, then much relaxed. Armed with due an thority she established her reform through out a large part of Europe, and, in spite of the most violent opposition, founded seven teen convents of the strict observance. By the same wonderful prudence she assisted in healing the great schism which then af flicted the Church. The Fathers in Counn eil at Constance were in doubt how to deal with tbe three claimants to the tiara John XXIII., Benedict XIII., and Gregory XII. At this crisis Colette, together with St. Vincent Ferrer, wrote to the Fathers to depose Benedict XIII., who alone refused Shis consent to anew election. This was done, and Martin V. was elected, to the great good oftheCbhurch. Colette equally assisted the Council of Basle by her ad Svice and prayers; and when, later, God re r- veasled to her the spirit of revolt that was rising, she warned the bishops and legatee -retire from the Council. She died March 6th1, 1447, in a transport of intercession for sinners and the Church. St. Colette never ceased to pray for the Church, while the devils in turn never ceased to assault her. They swarmed Sround her as hideousne Insects, buzzing and atinging her tender skin. They brought into her cell the deca5ing corpses of pnb lie criminals, and assueming themselves monstrous forms strock her savage blows; y or they would appear in the most seductive guise, and tempt her by many deceits to sin. Yet the virgin of Christ triumpbed alike over their threats and allurements, and said she would count that day the un happiest of her life n which she sunffered nothing for her G ,d. r YMarch ?. aT. THoMAs aqUINAS. t8. Thomas was born ot noble parents at AiQo.la Italy, A. D.. 18. At the age of nineteen be received the Dominican balt wai at Naples, where he was studying. Seized der by his brothers on his way to Parise, he suf- a p fered a two years' captivity in their castle to i of Rocca.Secca; but neither the caresses of pla his mother and sisters nor the threats and the stratagems of his brothers could shake him son 3n his vocation. Having at length escaped, "F be went to Culogee to study under B. Al- con bert the Great, and after that to Paris, Th where he taught for many years philosophy sol and theology. The Church has ever vene- me rated his numerous writings as a treasure- the house of sacred doctrine; while in naming we him the Angelic Doctor she has indicated thli that his science is more divine than human. at I The rarest gifts of intellect wese combined cot in him with the tenderest piety. Prayer, anc he said, had taught him more than study. at His singular devotion to the Blessed Sac- the rament shines forth in the office and hymns fese for Corpus Christi, which he composed. the To the words miraculously uttered by a ren crucifix at Naples, "Well hast thou written atif concerning me, Thomas; what shall I give the thee as a reward 9" he replied, "Nought save Thyself, 0 Lord." He died at Fossa- sol Nnova, A. D. 1274, on his way to the Gen- cols eral Council of Lyons, to which Pope awl Gregory X. had sanaonned him. bre While St. Thomas was in confinement at ant Rocca Secca his brothers endeavored to tha entrap him into sin, but the attempt only his ended in the triumph of his purity. ma Snatching from the hearth a burning brand, ted the Saint drove from his chamber the hiu wretched creature %hom they had there iot concealed. Then marking a cross upon the Bigi wall, he knelt down to pray, and forthwith, to being wrapt in ecatacy, an angel girded boc him with a cord, in token of the gift of perpe ua chi w him. The pain caused by the girdle was so sharp that St. Thomas uttered a piercing cry, which brought his guards into the we room. But he never told this grace to any Ii one save only to Father Raynald, his con fessor, a little while before his death. of Hence originated the Confraternity of the Th Angelic Warfare, for the preservation of po0 the virtue of chastity. rh, IMarch. Fa ST. JOBN OF GOD. an Nothblg in John's early life foreshadewed thi his future sanctity. He ran away as a boy m. from his home in Portugal, tended sheep ca and cattle in Spain, and served as a soldier let against the French, and afterwards against an the Turks. When about forty years of age, feeling remorse for his wild life, he resolv- we ed to devote himself to the ransom of the an Christian slaves in Africa, and went thither pit with the family of an exiled noble, which pa he maintained by hislabor. On his return in. to Spain he sought to do good by selling wi holy pictures and books at low prices. At wi f length the hour of grace struck. At Gra- a nada a sermon, by the celebrated John of an Avila, shook his son! to its depths, and his co expreesions of self-abhorrence were so to extraordinary that he was taken to the of asylum as one mad. There he employed th himself in ministering to the sick. He had at found his vocation. On leaving he began m to collect homeless poor, and to support them by his work and by begging. By hb degrees helpgilowed in ; the bishop became pt his patron, and gave him the name of John of God. When his hospital was on fire, di John was seen rushing about uninjured w, amidst the flames until he had rescued all at his poor. Atter ten years spent in the ser- te vice of the suffering, the Saint's life was tt fitly closed. He plunged into the river as Xenil to save a drowning boy and died tt A. u. 1550 of an illness brought on by the tb attempt, at the age of fifty-five. cc One night, St. John found in the streets at a poor man who seemed near death, and, ni as was his wont, he carried him to the as hospital, laid him on a bed, and went to bh fetch water to wash his feet When he bad ol he knelt to kiss them, and " started with awe; the feet were pierced, t a and the print of the nails bright with an tc t unearthly radiance. He raised his eyes to ri look, and heard the words: "John, to Me o0 thou doest all that thou doest to the poor p a in My name; I reach forth My hand for the e; h alms thon givest; Me dost thou clothe; tt n Mine are the feet thou doet wash." And n, e then the gracious vision disappeared, leav n ing St. John filled at once with confusion si and consolation. a Yarbh s. ST. FRANCES OR ROM. B. Frances was born at Rome in 1384. Her a parents were of high rank. They over ruled her desire to become a nun, and at twelve years of age married her to Lorenzo I Ponciano, a Roman noble. During the 5 a forty years of their married life they never ae had a disagreement. While spending her v a- days in retirement and prayer, she attend i er ed promptly to every household duty, ar saying: "A married woman most leave t re God at the altar to find Him in her domes- I ry tic cares ;" and she once found the verse of r Is a psalm in which she had been four times a r, thus interrupted completed for her in let i- ters of gold. Her ordinary food was dry t i- bread. Secretly she would exchange with n of beggars good food for their hard crusts; n- her drink wra water, and her cap a human ly skull. Daring the invasion of Rome in ,d 1413, Ponziano was banished, his estates f-. conftiscated, his house destroyed, and his n- eldest son taken as a hostage. Frances sl saw in these losses only tie hfoeer of God, I - and blessed Bis holy name. When peace y was restored Por ziano recovered his estates th and Frances founded the Oblates. After o her husband's death, barefoot and with a ad cord about her neck, she begged admission as to the community, and was soon elected e Superioress. She lived always in the ly presence of God, and amongst many vis - ions was given the constant sight of her - angel guardian. She died on the day she as had foretold, March 9th, 1440. e St. Frances's angel appeared to her ch under the form of a lovely child about r eight years of age; his eyes were fixed on heaven, his arms reverently crossed on his 1 e breast; he shed such a brigtnese around er him that the Saint could read her midonight d Office by this light alone. He shielded her d in the hour of temptation, and directed her t in every good act. Busoe when she was - betrayed into some defect, he faded from a her hight; and when some light words a; were spoken before her, he covered his e face in shame. Match is. ts, THE FORTY MARTYRS 01O SEBASTE. 0 The Forty Martyrs were soldiers quar ed tered at Sehaste in Arumenia, about the 3ear 320. When their legion was ordered from the rest, aid formed a company of martyrs. After they had been torn by at soourges and iron books they were chained of together, and led to a lingering death. It bit was a cruel winter, and they were con ed downed to lie naked on the icy ourface f.f if- a pond in the open air till they were frozen tie to death. But they ran nndismayel to the of place of their combat, joyfully staipped off ad their garments, and with one voice be im sought God to keep their ranks unbroken. d, "Forty," they cried, "we have come to Ll- combat; grant that forty may be crowned." is, There were warm bathes hard by, and a E by soldier stood on guard, ready at each mo e- ment to bring to the fire any one amongst e- them who would deny Christ. As he ug watched he saw angels descending with ed thirty-nine crowns, and while he wondered on. at the deficiency in the number, one of the ed confessors lost heart, renounced his faith, or, and crawling to the fire died body and soul ly. at the spot where he expected relief. But ,c- the soldier on guard was inspired to con ns fees Christ and take his place, and again ) Ad. the number of forty was complete. They a a remained steadfast while their limbs grew en stiff and frczen, and died one by one, till ve the last of the forty entered heaven. 'bt Among the Forty there was a young a. soldier who held out longest against the n- cold, and when the officers came to cart pe away the dead bodies they found him still T breathing. Tney were moved with pity, at and wanted to leave him alive in the hope to that he would still change his mind. But ly his mother stod by, and this valiant wo y,. man could not beat to see her son separa d, ted from the band of martyrs. She exhorted he him to persevtre, and lifted his frozen body ire into the cart. 11ie was just able to make a he sign of recognition, and was borne away hb, to be thrown into the flames with the dead ed bodies of his brethren. of 'as eg The first of a series of musical experi he mots was made lastweekiu-the R-mtt'a ny Island asylum, New York, for the pauper in r 1n- sane. The investigators consisted of aparty th. of medical men, musicians and reporters. she Thepurpose of the visit was to determine, if w of possible, the relative and specific effects of rhythm, melody, and harmony upon patients suffering with melancholia and -w acute mania, and to note the emotional in fluence and therapeutic results (if any) of red the different modes and various kinds of w moy music when performed under favorable cir sep cumstances to individuals and groups se lier lected from the large number of insane now i nat under treatment on the island. ge, About fourteen hundred female patients lv- were assembled in the entertainment hall ei the and subjected to a continuous strain of her piano music for half an hour. This pre lich paratory move was not unlike the prelim urn inary measures of popular biologists who tug wish to place their audiences en rapport o At with themselves, and to tell them tolook at c era- a revolving diek, or to hold their thumbs, C of and then select the susceptible cases. The his compositions covered a wide range: Noc- c so turne of Chopin, song of Schubert, waltz C the of Gottaschalk, Polka of Pattison, " Hold c yed the Fort." a bit of " The Moonlight Son- C bad ata," "Tramp, tramp, tramp, the boys are c gan marching," a strain or two of Mozart, and Moit "The Sweet By and By." It was obserar- C By ble that the goneral etlect was to raise the ame pulse and make the patients restless. A ohn A prevaeunt desire to keep time with the ire, dance music was noticeable. Rhythm they fred were all susceptible to, and its effect was all stimulating. Mere melody of an uncertain ser- tempo was without any effect, except in 1 was those individual cases where the force of iver association was still operative. During lied the performance of a waltz, it was with - the the greatest difficulty that the keepers could keep the patients in their seats; eets and even when thus confined, the greater end, number kept time by drumming on the the seats with their hands, wagging their t to heads, or shuffling their feet. In one case had of chronic melancholia, the performance of and "Home, Sweet Home," invariably brought ce, the patient to er nees, an to recite the "Lord's Prayer," in an appa 5s to rent ecstasy of devoticu.. In another case Me of acute mania the dance music raised her poor pulse from 78 to 106 without the patient the exhibiting any other signs of excitation the; than the involuntary twitching of her facial And muscles In the worst cases, cantabile eav music seemed to have much the same sion soothing iffect that it has upon certain animals. They were disposed to lie com fortably down and go to sleep under it. In nearly every instance the effects of pro nounced rhythm were involuntary, the Her movements of the limbs and facial muscles ver- being attributed to reflex action. Experi d at ments in the mad house upon Ward's enzo Island were deferred, there being no in the strument there. ever It is understood that further experiments her will be made this week, and among others end it is proposed to try the effects of music lty, upon a raving maniac. It should be stated eave that the patients on Randall's and Ward's mes- Islands are not entirely. strangers to good se of music. Every facility is offered to profes imes sional visitors to sing and play for the let- unfortunates, and scarcely a week passes dry that some kindly disposed musician does with not visit the islands and offer a charitable lats; entertainment.
