She married at fourteen, after a childhood of remarkable santity. Her holy example induced her husband also to devote him self to good works, to live in chastity, and distribute his riches to the poor, and together they served a hospital of lepers. Neither the mockery of the wprld nor the artifices of the devil induced them to abandon their holy purposes; and this con stancy drew down upon them abundant celestial benedictions. Mary was con stastly rapt in ecstacy. Sbe worked many 'ltraeles, read the secrets of hearts, and _toho saw:our Lord Himself in the Sacred BH-er spirit was so occupied with Sthekesence of God that nothing could -distract her ; and she passed many days without speaking, except to say, '1 desire to receive the Body of our Lord Jesus Christ," and after Communion she relapsed again into total silence. Her tender love and compassion for the sufferings of Jeansus were so great that she conceived as ardent desire for crosses. She never ate until evening, and then only black bread.; but the angels appeared to her at table, and their heavenly convelsstion overwhelmed her soul with delights. Being fl led with humility and compunction, she had an ex treme horror of the smallest sin, and, although her life was so innocent, the rigour of her penance was indescribable. She died at the age of thirty-turee, in a hermitage near Omgnies. B. Mary could not behold a crucifix with out being dissolved in tears. To stop them she contemplated the majesty and impassibility of God, but the remembrance of what this God of Majesty had suffered for her made them flow faster than before. A priest once begged her to moderate her tears and sighs, and pray in silence. Un able to do this, she left the church; but she prayed God to show the priest the impossibility of a creature resisting the operation of the Holy G:,ost. The same day at Mass this priest was so filled with tenderness that he was utterly unable to restrain his tears, and he shed them so copiously that his vestments, and even the altar-cloths, were batht d with them. August20. ST. BERNARD. Bernard was born at the castle of Fon taines in Burgurdy. The grace of his person and tl.e vigor of his intellect filled his parents with the highest hopes, and the world lay bright and smiling before him, when he renounced it for ever and joined the monks of Citeaux. Here his holy ex ample attracted so many novices that other monasteries were erected, and Ber nard was appointed abbot of that of Clair- I vaux. Unsparing with himself, he at first expected too much of his brethren, who were disheartened at his severity ; but soon perceiving his error, he led them for- I ward by the sweetness of his correction and the mildness of his rule to wonderful perfection. In spite of his desire to lie hid, the fame of'his sanctity spread far and wide, and many churches asked for him as their bishop. Through the help of B. Eugenius III, his former subject, he es caped this dignity : yet his retirement was continually invaded ; the poor and the weak sought his protection; bishops, I kings, and Popes applied to him for advice; and at length Eugenius himself charged I him to preach the Crusade. By his fervour, I eloquence, an miracles Bernar kiudlea the enthusiasm of Christendom, and two * splendid armies were despatched against 1 the infidel. Their defeat was only due, said the Saint. to their own sins. Bernard died A. D. 1153. His most precious writ- a ings have earned for him the titles of the last of the Fathers and a Doctor of Holy Church. All his'brothers followed Barnard to Ci teaux except Nevard the youngest, who was left to be the stay of his father in his old age. "You will now be heir of every thing," said they to him, as they departed. "Yes," said the boy ; "you leave me earth, and keep heaven for yourselves. Do you call that fair T.' And he too left the world. At length their aged lather came to exchange wealth and honor for the pov erty of a monk of Clairvaux. One only sister remained behind : she was married, and loved the world and its pleasures. Magnificently dressed she visited Bernard; he refused to see her, and only at last con sented to do so, not as her brother, but as the minister of Christ. The words he then spoke moved her s: much that two yea:rs later she retired to a convent with her husband's consent, ar:d died in the reputa tion of sanctity. Autust I1. ST. JANE FRANCES DE CIIANTAL. At the age of sixteen Jane Francer do Fremyot, already a motherless child, was placed nuder the care ofa worldly-minded governess. In this crisis she offered her self to the Mother of God, and secired Mary's protection for life. WLen a Pro testant sought her hand, s!:e steadily re fused to marry "an enemy of God and His Church," and shortly arterwards, as the loving and beloved wife of the Baron de Chantal, made her house the pattern of a Christian home. But God had marked her for something higher than domestic sanctity. Twochildren and a dearly loved sister died; and in the full tide of pros perity her husband's life was taken by the Innocent hand of a friend. For seven years the sorrows of her widowhood wer increased by ill-usage from servants and inferiors, and the cruel Importunities of friends, who urged her to marry again. Harassed almost to despair by their en treaties she branded on her heart the name of Jesus, and in the end left her beloved home and children to live for God alone. She was to found with St. Francis de Sales a great order. Sickness, opposition, want. boset her, and the death of children, friends, and of St. Francis himself follow ed, while eighty seven bouses of the Visi tation rose under her hand. Nine long years of interior desolation completed the work of God's arace ; and in her seven tieth year, St. Vincent of Paul saw at the moment of her death her soul ascend, as a ball of fire, to heaven. It was on the 192h of March, 1609, that Madame de Chantal bade farewell to her family and relations. Pale and with tears in her eyes she passed round the large room, sweetly and humbly taking leave of eash. He sen, a boy of Afteen, used m, ,to in ' duce his mother not to leave them, and at iaut passionately Song himself across the door of the room. In an agony of distrees bshe passed on over the body of her son to the embrace of her aged and disconsolate i fatbher The anguish of that parting reached its height when, kneeling at the feet of the venerable old man, she sought and obtained his last bleasing, promising to repay in her new home hi sacrifioe by her prayers. Well might St. Francis call her "The valiant woman." August 29 ST. BTYMPHORIAN, MARTYR. About the year 180 there was a great procession of the heathen goddess Ceres at Anton in France. Amongst the crowd was one who refused to pay the ordinary marks of worship. He was therefore dragged before the magistrate and accused of sacrilege and sedition. When asked his name and condition he replied, "My name is Symphorian ; I am a Christian." He came of a noble and Christian family. He was still young and so innocent, that he was said to converse with the holy angels. The Christians of Anton were few, and little known, and the judge could not believe that the youth was serious in his purpose. He caused the laws enforcing heathen worship to be read, and looked for a speedy compliance. Sympborian replied that be must obey the laws of the King of kings. "Give me a hammer," he said, "and I will break your idol in pieces." He was scourged and thrown into a dungeon. Some days later this son of light came forth from the darkness of his prison, haggard and worn, but full of joy. He despised the riches and honors a ffred to him, as he had despised torments. He died by the sword, and went to the court of the heavenly King. Little more than a century later the Roman empire bowed before the faith of Christ. Many miracles spread the slory of St. Symphorian and of Christ the King of Saints. The mother of St. Symphorian stood on the city walls and saw her son led out to die. She knew the honors he had refused and the dishonor of his death; but she esteemed the reproach of Christ better than all the riches of Egypt, and she cried out to him, "My son, my son, keep the living God in your heart; look up to him who reigns in heaven." Thus she shared in the'glory of his passion, and her name lives with his in the records of the Church. August 23. ST. PHILIP BENIZI. St. Philip Benizi was born in Florence on the Feast of the Assumption, 1233. That same day the Order of Servites was found ed by the Mother of God. As an infant at the breast Philip broke out into speech at the sight of these new religious, and beg ged his mother to give them alms. Amidst all the temptations of his youth he longed to become himself a servant of Mary; and it was only the fear of his own unworthi ness which made him yield to his father's wish and begin to practise medicine. After long and weary waiting his doubts were solved by our Lady herself, who in a vis ion bade him enter her Order. Still Philip dared only offer himself as a laybrother, and in this humble state he strove to do penance for his sins. In spite of his reluc tance he was promoted to the post of mas ter of novices; and as his rare abilities were daily discovered he was bidden to prepare for the priesthood. Thenceforth honors were heaped upon him: he became general of the Order, and only escaped by fight elevation to the papal throne. His preaching restored peace to Italy, which was- wated by civil wars, ;,anat the Council of Lyons he spoke to the assem bled prelates with the gift of tongues. Amid all these favors Philip lived in ex treme penitence, constantly examining his soul before the judgment seat of God, and i condemning himself as only fit for hell. He died, a true child of Mary, at the Arde Maria, on the Octave of the Assumption i 1285. St. Philip, though he was free from the stain of mortal sin, was never weary of beseeching God's mercy. From the time he was ten years old be said daily the Penitential Psalms. Oa his deathbed he kept reciting the verses of the Miscrere with his cheeks streaming with tears; and during his agony he went through a terri ble contest to overcome the fear of damona tioc. Bit a few minutes before he died all his doubts disappeared, and were suc ceeded by a holy trust. He uttered the responses in a low but audible voice; and when at last the Mothor of God appeared before him, he lifted up his arms with joy and breathed a gentle Eigh, as if placing hie soul in ,er hand. August 21. ST. FiI:EN, ABBOT. The sanctity of St. Pee Ben was so eminent that he has been called the fellow citizen of the angels, the chief of solitaries, and the prince of the desert. He was an Egyptian, and about the age of fifteen he entered the desert, and persuaded his six young brothers to do the same. They em braced a life of prayer, labor and extreme mortification, ofte:, passing many days without tasting food. Although so severe towards himself, PI'nlen's spirit was one of marvelous gentitness towards others. Ho would say, "If a monk wishes to taste true peace, hie muost learn never to judge another, and oe convinced of his own nothingneee." Aultary once said to him, "My father, wen I receive a visit from one of !bet rethren whom I know to be guilyf a considerable fault, I refuse to -dmit him; but if I know him to be a good religious, I receive him with joy." St. Poemen answered, "If you are kind to him who is good, yon should be doubly so to him who is ailing." He also said: 'God came down to earth to see the guilt of Sodom before punishing it, to teach us never to believe the evil we hear of an other." And again: "A jaust man who subdues his passions may give lessons to others; but if he is subject to them he is like one who pulls down his own house to build that of another." Framen died at a great age, about the year 451. St. Pcasen greatly disapproved that bit ter zeal which blames every little fault without consideration for the weakness of human nature, and which is ever prone to judge and condemn our neighbor. Some solitaries said to him, "My father, when we see any of the brethren asleep at the hour of prayer, ought we not to awaken them 7" But Ptmen answered, "When I see a brother thus overcome by sleep, I only wish I could pillow his head upon my kniLs, that be might rest the better." ST. LOUIS, EtlO. The mother of Louis told him she had rather see him die than commit a mortal sin, and he never forgot her words. King of France at the age at the age af twelve, he made the defence of God's honor the aim of his life. Before two years be had erushed the Albigensian heretics, and forced them by stringent penalties to respect the Catholic Faith. Amidst the Bares of Government be daily recited the Divine Office and beard two Masses, and the most glorious churches in France are still monuments of his piety. The fearless protector of the weak and the oppressed, he was chosen to arbitrate in all the great feuds of this age between the Pope and the Emperor, between Henry III. and the English barons. In 1248, to rescue the land which Christ had trod, he gathered round him the chivalry of France, and embarked for the East. There, before the infidel, in victory or defeat, on the bed of sickness or a captive in chains, Louis showed himsilf ever the same, the first, the best, and the bravest of Christian knights. The death of his mother recall ed him to France; but when order was re-established, he again set forth on a second crusade. In August, 1270, his army landed at Tunis, and though victorious over the e: emy, succumbed to a malignant fever. L uis was one of the victims He received the viaticum kneeling by his camp-bed, and gave up his life with the same joy tlat be had given all else for the honor of God. When Louis was a captive at Damiletta, an Emir rusbed into his tent brandishing a dagger red with the blood of the Sultan, and threatened to stab him also unless he would make him a knight as the Emperor Frederick had Facardin. L,nis calmly replied that no unbeliever could perform the duties of a Christian knight. In the same captivity he was offered his liberty on terms lawful in themselves, but enforced by an oath which implied a blasphemy, and though the infidels held their sworda' points at his throat, and threatened a mas sacre of the Christians, Louis inflexibly refused. His dying words to his son were, "'Pnish all who speak evil of God or of His Saints." If anybody had told the poor people who were massacred up in Wyoming-Ger trnde's family and the rest of them-a hundred years ago, if anybody had told them that their most miserable deaths at any time in the fature would be made the foundation for a country-side junketing. they would have died all the harder and would have felt that posterity was sitting down upon them, hard. And yet the fierce and unreasonable longing on the part of the average American for centen nial exhibitiocs has ended in bringing about precisely this disordered condition of things, in making the massacre thelbasis of the jolliest frolic that the vale of Wyo ming has ever known. Overtasking the Energies. It is not advisable for any of us to overtaak our energies, corporeal or mental, but in the eager pur suit of wealth or fame or knowledge, how many trans gress this salutary rule. It mustbe a matter of great importance to all who do so to know how they can regain the vigor so iecklessly expended. The remedy is neither costly nor difficult to obtain. Hostetter'a Stomach Bitters is procurable in every city, town and settlement in America, and it cmpenssates for a drain of bodily or mental energy more effectually than any invigerant ever prescribed or advgrtiaed. Laboring men, athletes students. journa'is. lawyers, clergy men, physicians, all bear testimony to its wondrously renovatin powers. It increases the cspabilities for undergoing fatigue, and counteracts rte injurious effects upon the system of exposure, edentary habits, unhealthy or wearying evocatlons, or an insalubrious llimate. and is a prime ahlerative, diuretic and blood depurent. .,FUNERAL5, MARRiAGIOs, uTc.-Attention is called to the card of Coroner J.
