But we know d that his virtues fitted him for this high a ofie, and in his death he proved himself el detached from all save the service of God, tl a minister who had no need to be ashamed. si When brought before the President of w Pannonla, during the persecution of Dlo- b eletian, he refnused to offer sacrifice, and to " the threat of torments he replied; -'I will m bear them with joy, that I may partake in p. the Passion of the Lord." But another d trial awaited him after his torture. His " friends and his relations surrounded him, B bewailing his youth and beseeching him tc So take pity on himself. To all this Iren- pi nas paid no heed. He was hastening on .l to the prise of his heavenly calling; neither the tears of his friends nor impris- m onment and fresh torture could impede in him in his course or cool the fervor of his at desire to die for Christ. B He hurried on his executioners, and bade he the judge pass sentence at once, and see a how Christ would make His servant vic- to torlons over death. As he reached the re bridge where he was to be beheaded he rl stripped off his clothes, raised his hands to m heaven, and prayed Christ to receive His gl servant who sufitred for His name and re for the people of tihe Catholic Church. et g -if -he-b any relations. "None," he replied. "Who ec then," said thej udge, "were those who stood weeping at your trial !" The holy martyr explained his meaning. "Our Lord Jesus Christ," he said, "has given us this rule 'He who lovee father and mother more al than Me is not worthy of Me.' " And so, in - the words of the Acts, looking up to God, and fixing his mind on His promise, he despised everything. else, and declaredo that none was present with him except hi God. it tt B. ALEXIS FALCONIERI. On the Feast of the Assumption, 1233, hi seven Florentine nobles met together, as at their custom was, to recite the Office of the p, Blessed Virgin. While they were thus m engaged she herself appeared before them, cl and bade them forsake the world for a T more perfect life. At once, like the Chrie- re tians of old, they sold their goods, gave F the money to the poor, and changed their re senatorial robes for the simple habit of B religions. "See, the servants of the Ma- hi donna," cried a child at its mother's breast or as they entered the city; the name was in accepted as a token of the will of Heaven, tc and from that time they and their spirit- le sal children have been known as Servites, vi or servants of Mary. One of these seven ti founders was Alexie Falconieri, the propa- of gator of the devotion to the Seven Dolours T of our Lady. He was with difficulty pre- hi vailed upon to receive ordination, and in ibe religion he always sought out the most of humbling offices. To him our Lady pre sented the black habit which the Servites m wear in honor of the Passion of her Son. hi Every day of his life Alexis repeated a O0 hundred Hail Manries to the Immaculate wi Mother of God; and it was at the end of a the hundretir "Ave" that he expired, on ro February 17th, 1:310, in his 110th year. At lo the moment of his death he saw a flock of bl doves flying round him, and the Infant w, Jeans placing a crown of floweres upon his head. At the time of the foundation of the Servite Order several counterfeit religious - i h lirch. Inno cent IV, therefore, commissioned St. Peter Martyr, the Dominican, to invertigace its f true character. Onr Lady herself urder- hi took the defence of her clients. She appeared to the Inquisitor in a %ision iof I glory with a wreath of even lilies upon m her head. These lilies, she explained to Peter, eignilfed the seven founders of the I Serrites, whoim sie had inspired to insti-1 tute the new Older in honor of the doloui i she had scttiYr.d throagh the Passion of icr Ia Son. di March, 7. t at ST. JOIN OF EGYP'T. cc Till he was twenty-five John worked as a, a carpenter with his father. Then feeling hi a call from Gad hie left tihe world and corn- gi mitted himself to a holy solitary in the E desert. His master tried his spirit by many ci unreasonable commands, bidding him roll A J the hard rocks, tend dead trees, and the fr like. John obeyed in all things with the ri simplicity of a child. After a careful w training of sixteen years he withdrew to ti the top of a steep cliff to think only of God to and his soul. There he dwelt fitty years hi till his death, never quitting his cell, eating L a little fruit once a day, and never seeing a al woman. St. Augustine tells, nos of his ap- it. aring in a vision to a holy woman whose w ight he had restored, to avoid seeing her di ace to face. Devils assailed him contion- sc lly, but John never ceased his prayer. rom his lot g communinge with God he in urned to men with gifts of healing and w rophecy. Twice each week he spoke fa brough a window with those who came to fe im, blessing oil for the sick, and predict- at g things to come. A deacon came to him pc n disguise, and be reverently kissed his CL and. To the Emperor Theodosius he ee oretold his future victories and the time m f his death. The three last days of his m fe John gave wholly to God; on the third di was found on his knees as if in prayer, at t his sorl was with the blessed. He w edA. D. 394. si St. John left first his natural and then lo spiritual brethren, and gave himself to prayer, to learn the state of his nacience, that he might purify himself, as God is pure. The more le knew of himself, the more he distrusted himself. i For the last Afty years, therefore, he never r women, and seldom men. The result f this vigilance and purity was threefold: B holy joy and cheerfolness which consoled ti all who conversed with him; perfect obe- ml lence to superiors; and in return for this, in uthority over creatures, whom he had w rsaken for the Creator. March SS Ms·reh 49 hr ST. DOSITBEUUS, MONK. Dositheos was brought up in luxury, and al tained high rank in the imperial army, ti the sixth century. He had never been or aught any religion. At Jeruealem he saw hi picture of hell, end whilst woodering w what it could mean a bright figure appeared di and explained it. Friends seeing his life G changed, said in joke, "If you wish to live t< thas yeo abould enter a monastery." He er asked wlr.t a monastery was, and some one took him to that of St. Seiidon. Tois Saint seeing him in rich military uniform told St. Dorothens to question him on various points; but his only answer was, "I want to save my soul." Dorotbes hen told him he was too ddlicste to reach sanctity by penance, but most perfect himself by Interior mortificationo. Dosithcns devoted himself with ardor to this study, and became a model of unhesitating obedi ence. He thus fulfilled in five shbort years the measure of his sanctification, and God sent him a painful and lingering disease which led him to paradise. On hise death bed Dosithens said to St. Barsanuphina, "Bid me die, my father; I can bear no mere.' The Saint answered, "Yet a little patience, my son; the hour of God's mercy draws nigh.' Afterwards Dositheus said, "My father I can Jive no longer." And Barsanuphins said, "Go In peace, my son, to appear before the Adorable Trinity, and pray for us." And Dosithens by obedience slept in the Lord. After the death of Dositheus his fellow monks murmured among themselves, say ing, "Dositheus fasted but little; he did no great penance. Why does our father Barsanphins ask his prayers, as though he were already a Saint in heaven t" But a holy solitary arrived, who asked God to show himr the merits of the former religious of that monastery. He saw them il in vision, and with the venerable aged monks a 3onng novice, equal to them is glory. From his description the monks recognized Doeitheus, and learned that a short life of heroic obeduence is equal befwo>aasLm:loaz ºa v -rs of anstere bnt aoef-chosen penance. March 9e. ST. MONTAEUS AND C(.MPANIONS, IM.U. Soon after the death of St. Cyprirn, about the middle of the third century, eight Chrietians fell into the hands of the persecutom at Carthage. In a letter still extant they tell us that they usneed the time of their imprisonment to fit themselves for heaven by communion in prayer and char ity, and found their loathsome dangeon a paradise of delight. Charity was ever on their lips and in their actions. Flavian, one of theirjnumber, practised it in such an heroic degree that, when they were all suffering from hunger, he used to save a portion of his scanty pittance tlhat there might be more for the rest. But this charity shone brightest in the hour of death. Two of their number died in prison. The rest were led out to be beheaded, except Flavian, who was spared for the time, and remained full of grief at tl.'e separation. But his brethren did not forget him. Just before his head was struck off, bMontannus, one among them, prayed aloud that Flavian might join them in three days; then he tore in two the bandage for his eyes, and left one half for him. In three days Fla vian was beheaded. lie blessed the Chris tians who stood by. if. they kept the unity of the Church and the bond of charity. Then he bond his eyes with the other half of the bandage which iMontanus had bequeathed to him, and knelt for the stroke of the sword. We can see from the history of these martyrs how uentirely their perseverence huong upon the exact observance of charity. One of them had some slight difference with another on a matter of prudence. In a vision he seemed to stand in the white robed army of the martyrs; but when he looker: at himself he was stained with the black mark of hit fault. He awoke, and was reconciled with his brother.

John mnde, while still young, such pro .a in "ari iat he was called the Scbolastic. t thie age of sixteen he turne from tie brilliant future which lay before him, and retired to Mount Sinai, where he pot himself under the direction of a holy monk.

At the ngo of seventy-tive he was chosen abbot of Mount Sinai. and there 'hlie dwelt in the mount of God, and drew from the rich treasures of his heart priceless riches of doctrine, which he poured forth with wondrous abundance and benedic tion." He was induced by a brother abbot to write the rules by which he had guided his life; and his book called the Cliimax,or Ladder of Perfection, has been prized in all ages for its wisdom, its clearness, and its unction. At the end of four years he would no longer endure the honors and distractions of his office, and retired to his solitude, where he died A. D. 605. "Amongst these men, worthy to be held in everlasting remembrance, I saw many whose heads were white with age, whose faces were as those of angels, who by their fervor of spirit and converse with God had attained a simplicity of wisdom and a perfect innocence which had oiithing in common with the decay of reason and the second childishness we often see in old men of the world. Outwardly they were marked by an exceeding gentleness, a cor dial and seemly gaity of heart; nothing studied, nothing put on; inwardly their whole soul was turned towards God, as simple and innocent children turn to a loving father."-i t. Jolhn Olimnacue. March 31. a. NICHOLAS OV FLUE. Nicholas, called of Fine from his native village in the Swiss canton of Unterwalden, was born in 1417. Bie childhood was marked by a seal for prayer and penance. Returning late from the fielde he would turn aside to some solitary place to be alone with God; and lie fasted rigorously, in spite of his parents' fears, four days a week. At the age of thirty he married, and brought up in singular holiness a fam ily of ten children. In this new state his hunger after prayer did but increase; not content with the day, he would steal out at midnight to pray in a neighboring church till dawn. As a brave soldier in more than one war, and as counsellor and judge in his own canton, he ever gave the same wonderful example of holiness. When fifty.years old, following the orgent call of God, he left home and family, and retired to the mountains above Fine. Here God enabled him to lead an extraordinary life, praying constantly and tasting no foo save the Blessed Sacrament. Examined b superiors, and tried by the touchstone e obedience, his sanctity and the gift of mis aales and prophecy drew to him all wb needed strength, counesel, or consolatmor He received Holy Viaticom kneeling, i spite of extreme pain, and surroounded i his little cabin by the wife and childret whom he had left for God, and whom h consoled and strengthened to the last died in 1487, after twenty years of hermi life. When Nicholas was serving in the wa against Austria, the Swiss had resolved t set fire to a Dominican convent, which th enemy had strongly forti8fied. Filled witi holy seal, Nicholas implored the com mander to desist, prophesying, as indees it came to pass, that the enemy wooli withdraw of their own accord, and tha the convent would give a glorious example of virtue in after times. Having prevailei with the chiefs lie flow to the spot, and, a the risk of his life snatched the brand from the soldiers' hands and put out the rising flames. Thus if we have God'i glory at beart we may find in every state opportunities ot promoting it. TEXIS HOBRE THIEVES.

There are now some seven hundred and fifty indicted horse thieven, fugitives from justice,at large, and perhaps half as many more in jails and in the peni tentiary. But where one horse thief is known and indicted, near about one huno dred get away with the stolen horses, or at least where the thief who steals one horse is known and indicted one hundred horses are stolen and no clue of thief or horse is afterwards obtained. About Austin they seem to be organized and succeed month after month in getting away with the horses of farmers, stockmen, and city people. The thieves are unknown and the horses are never recovered. If their raccess here is a criterion of their general success throughout the State, then the pro portion of one hundred succesasful steals to one failure and exposure is certainly within the bonnds of truth, and on that hypothesis they have stolen one hundred thousand horses in Texas in the last three years. The magnitude of their operations and the difficulty of checking them, then, will explain the fury of their victims against such as fall into their hands. Knowing their game to be desperate, they prepare for extremities, and are rarely caught without a fight and bloodletting on both sides. Hence, sheriffe are not oeusually very enthusiastic in their pursuit. Own ere of stolen stock are about their only pursuers, and when ovortaken by such the reader will readily infer that due course of law will not be had. It is believed that the exodus of outlaws from toe cattle dis tricts of the West, driven to tbo country east of the Colorado by Hall's Police and the Frontier Battalion, thas given an increased impetus to horse steasing, and that an organized handl of hundredie are now operating in Middil- Texas.

An Englishman went into a church in Rome the other day, and as a service was going on he sat quietly down, placing his hat on the grounod beside him. After waiting a little while, and as there seemed no immediate prospect of the ceremony coming to an end, he thought he would go and reached for his hat, but was stopped by an unseen arm which grasped him from behind. Thinking that probably some cnatodian of the church wished him to remain till the conclusion of the service he again waited. Presently he again thought of going, again reached for his hat, and again the nseen arm firmly prevented him. Con vinced that the service was really sume important one which his leaving would disturb, the Englishman again waited for about a quarter of an hour. At the expi ration of that time he determined to depart, in spite of etiquette. So be again reached * for his hat. Again the hand grasped him, y but as hlie determinedly resisted his retain ing efforts, a voice behind him exclaimed in English: "I beg your pardon, but that ais my bat youen are taking." And this was the fact. Our bero had been detained all this time because each time he wished to igo he had reached in mistake for the hat of tanother stranger, placed in close proximity Sto his own.-Londoa Examniner.
