MINERAL POINT, WISCONSIN, THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 16, 1909. Patron Feast of St. Mary’s Congregation The eighth of September marked a day of solemn rejoicing at St Mary's Catholic Church, it being the feast of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary, under whose pationage St. Mary’s Congregation is placed. At the early Masses over 250 members received Holv Communion. Solemn High Mass was celebrated at ten a. m. The celebrant was Father A, Bierstner of Highland; Father John Feld of Fennimore acted as deacon of the Mass; Father Eicher of Seymour, as sub-deacon; and Father Weyer, the pastor, as master of ceremonies. The sermon delivered by Fr. Feld was one which held the closest attention of everyone present. He used as his text the beautiful salutation to the Vir gin with which the church greets her on this day at the offertory; “Blessed art thou O Virgin Mary, who didst bring forth Him w r ho made thee, who didst bear the Creator of all things, and forever remainest a virgin.” Fr. Feld spoke of her power and influence at the throne of her Divine Son, and he ad monished his hearers to have recourse to her powerfu intercession. After High Mass. Benediction of the Blessed Sacra ment was given. The altars were elaborately decorated with choice flowers and ferns; perenni - al phlox, asters and cosmas being used in profusion. The singing rendered by the Sisters and their pupils was in ac cord with the solemnity of the services. St. Mary’s Congregation can justly pride itself in the manner in which the festal days of the Church are observed in this parish. For it is a special aim of all who are intimately connected with the work, to have the ceremonies performed with all of the splendor and solemnity which the Catholic Church affords.

David Power of Springfield. Mass., recently visited his old home in Ireland, and tells the Springfield Republican that he found conditions greatly improved there. He says: “The transformation since 1903 is nothing short of marvelous. It will be remembered that the land act enabled the tenants to borrow the money neces sary to buy the land they occupied at a nominal rate of interest from the gov ernment. This act has been the means of the salvation of Ireland, where the tenants had no inducement to improve the land and improve their own position because of the rents which were always raised by the land owner in proportion to impovements made by-the tenant, the people of the soil now have the necessary money and security to buy land and improve it. Barns, stables, and other improvements, are being erected on the farms, and the farmers are getting really quite prosperous. The chances are good for anyone in Ireland who has energy in him. Of course a lazy man or one who is not ambitious or industrious will not make a success there any more than he will anywhere else. But a man who will work hard and save has as good a chance in Erin as he would in the new world.” Stray Taken Up. Taken up by the undersigned on his farm adjoining the city on the east a small bay horse with white spot in face. Owner will please call and prove pro perty, pay charges and take said away.

The great rainstorm of Monday night left its mark in great furrows plowed in the stone covered streets of Mineral Point, and added to the already conclu sive evidence that only the most per mant kind of street work should be employed on our steep grades. On Tuesday W. E. Reach of Chicago, who is interested in the sale and proper use of tar via, the new road making ma terial which is growing in popular favor, was in town with a view of se curing its introduction into Mineral Point. At a meeting of members of the council he explained the advantage of a road properly constructed with tarvia and macadam. He estimated that in this city the cost would not exceed one dollar per line foot for the entire width of High street; or dividing the cost by two, one dollar aiuV'a half per line foot for each side of the street. For resi dence streets the cost would not exceed two dollars per line foot for the full widih of the street. It is not contemplated that any exten sive street improvements be made this fall; but it is hoped that some wise plan be adopted for the throughough im provement of High street, and that it will be put into practice next year.
