Th cou.rse of lectures on "The Eiscopal Church" have been listened to every evening by large and attenti\ne 'on gregatlons. They arce inteuded to give hlstorical information regarding the Church of England and her daugh ter Church the Episcopal (hurch in America. Tracts have also been dis tributed throughout the church. The sermons during the Lenten season have been designed to define Personal Religion. The Holy Week lecture sermons have been so designed as to give in a brief way, clear and unbiased historical information, freed of all the ory. The Episcopal Church depends not upon theories but upon historical facts. If church going is an infall Ible sign of a Lent well kept, then the congregation of Mt. Olivet have ob served a real Lent this year. We regret to record the death of Mrs. John Hunter, who departed this life Tuesday, at 4:05 p. m., after a very short illness. The burial service of the church was said at the house, church and grave. Interment in Me Donogh Cemetery. Wednesday at 4 p. m. "Father in thy gracious keeping Leave we now thy servant sleeping."

The Public School Athletic League announces that the annual track and field meet of the New Orleans public schools will be held on Saturday, .May 1. This week it will send out, to Orleanians who are or who ought t( he inlterested in the welfare of the school children, tickets for the meet with the reque.t that the recipients retain and remit therefor as their con tribution to the cause. For a l:l ,Iner of years the league has succesfully fostered the devel ol, tint of a;thletics in the New Orleanls schools. While there is close and circ!ial co operation between its officials and the school authorities, the :t":Igl. is a volllllutar organization of citizens and not a branch or depart niult of the ýchool sv'tem. It drawes no revenues from the educational n,,il tand its relianiiic for the nailntnance of its good work is solely upor itil ir.hlli p diue.- a1,l tih- prro'eedels 'c the annual meet. Year after year it -,,pli 's medal .. butt[cns, pelnalnts. trophies, etc.. for tile winners of the ,i nitron-- athil,"-t tolt.-tas. Year after year the value of this systematic , it n ,olr;ni m.ctreni t it! ;tihlt.tics is ladte plainer to those who keep touch with tlit" sc hools. Thie results are, apparent not only in the healthier interest in physical d .velltopnpi;t among the children and their improved physique, but in the Sitpreovcd stutic!y. attelidan.ce and tonldnet records. The youngsters cannot pa tic.ipa:,te- ll the athlhetic programt: of the league unless the reports ol Ithe ir regular school work are satisfactory. The temptation to neglect Is iacool ccork for athlttiet is thus removed, and the youthful interest in the gami'ts. by the admirable systeml of the league, serves as a stimulous tol irntlLa I development al-o. The work of the league is almost universally commended. But praise alone will not defray its expenses. This season its executive committee seeks, by sending out advance tickets for the annual meet, to secure a more substantial support for the cause than kind words and good wishes. The league's affairs are conducted with careful economy, but its revenue should be increased. The purpose of this article, therefore, is to second its request that the citizens who receive tickets to the annual field day will remit for them promptly and cheerfully. The contribution sought is modest indeed when one considers the value of the work to which it is to be devoted. If you happen to be unfamiliar with that work, by all means invest in the tickets and attend the meet for your own education. If you know what the league is doing for your juvenile fellow-citizens you should need no urging to aid, in the ways suggested, a community cause that has been tested by years of practice and is proven abundantly worth while.-T. P. TAKING DOWN FENCES. There is nothing that will beautify a town more than the removal of the front fences from residences. Those of our people who have been in the North of some of our Western towns will bear us out when we say that should all the front fences in our district be removed this part of the city would have an entirely different appearance and would add so much to the value of property here that the Fifth District would be looked upon as "the coming residential portion of the City of New Orleans." Many of our residents are ready to remove their fences and are held hack merely by the continued violation of the Stock Ordinance. Most of the residents here have pretty gardens and hesitate to take down their fences, feeling that their flowers and badges will be destroyed by the cows and horses that are found on the streets almost daily. It is to be regretted that the fine imposed for this offense is not more severe and that the violation does not carry with it some imprisonment of those who are continually violating this law. There are several of our residents who stand ready and willing to remove their fences now pro vided they can get substantial assurance from our officers that the cattle will be kept off the streets. thing to equal it, far less surpass it. At the moment of the renewal of the baptismal promise as the men - held lighted candles, the lights were id put out, and then, the altar boys were . seen to have formed a huge human cross extending from the steps of the I altar down the middle aisle. It was in a most impressing spectacle. The men repeated the promises with voices . filled with deep emotion, and strong conviction. That night, it goes with a- out saying that all went home re jolcing and all thankful to Father Lar kin for having brought down these two ,s worthy missionaries, and all felt that eI they had been amply repaid for their ,s troubles of the week, one man, wish e ing to extend to poor and infirm peo . ple the benefit of the mission, paid for a carriage to carry the fathers to 1I their homes. The altar boys were in charge of II Raymond Richards. present president of the organization. The following were in line: Obrien Clarke, John Rupp, Tom Tallon, Louis Lebouef, Charles Andry. - Joseph Brown, Robert Talbot, Maurice Heath, Joseph Tallon, Cassidy Bar n. rett, Eugene Lebouef, George Huff, r. Lambert Murtagh, Malcolm Manent, O'Neil Barrett, Artie Cummiskey, John Ryan, John Brown, Joseph Bevan, Maurice Robichaux. Ned Whitmore, Nelson Graham, Raymond Euper, Thomas Goff, Victor Olivier, Floyd r- Crane, Raymond Curren, Harold Healy, Is Raymond Richard, James Charbonnet. n Yet while it is not intended in any - way to diminish the devotion of the men, it must be said in all fairness that they could hardly help it. The two, good missionaries were perfectly at home with the men. Father Al phonsus again gave the instructions in his usual and incomparable at tractive way. If he remained in our midst a little longer there would be it nothing left for the priests of the t- parish to explain, so thoroughly and e comprehensively does he do his work. IFather Ignatius was in his element r- when handling the deep truths of sal e ration from the view point of men. 1 y It was worth traveling miles to hear a him say in his own Inimitable. har s monious way, "men." Everytime he iuttered the word he brought them Icloser to him, until they seemed to I drink from his words. Words could a not express their joy for some shed Stears of emotion at his words. It t will be an epoch making event in the n history of the parish, and in the lives [ of many. d Wedmesday the most serious ques- a tio of Judgment, was treated, in a masterly way, showing the awful J awakening, that like a flash, will bring the Lord's truth before the mind of a those to be jdged. Thursday the preacher took for his subject, "The Spirit of the Age," which he quail- * -ed as beang ome of "Reaned Pagan is." because bhas, dbma asamuin eats, teed to the t at catiga of the C senses, with the idea of God left far if behind. It is above the old pagan. SaIsm only in so far as it throws the mantle of culture over an old state of things. e Friday, which by the Passionist Fa s thers is always given to the Passion, e was as usual taken up by this most a interesting phase of Christ's life. The g idea of the "Ingratitude of the World" º. from the apostles down to the pres ent generation, was a serious, and . deep lesson which went home. From o the great number of confessions that ,t night and the next, there is no doubt r that this lesson had real practical - effect. Sunday morning the priests were r nearly exhausted giving communion D railing after railing came up, until it seemed that the whole parish had f assembled to do honor to their Lord. t Sunday night was thej eventful R night. The church was packed. No greater tribute could have been paid n to the missionaries, and no greater proof of the sincerity of the men's e devotion could have been given. "The mission is ended," said Father Ignatius, "but life's battle has just begun. God commands you to con 3 quer the world, the flesh and the devil with the weapons of prayer, Mass, communion, fleeing of occasions of sin and hope." Solemn Benediction was given by Rev. J. Jeannard, chancellor of the archdiocese of New Orleans, assisted T by Rev. Father Stemnans of Gretna, as deacon, and Rev. Father Cassagne as sub deacon, Raymond Curren, cen ser bearer, E. Charbonnet, master of ceremonies. Monday the non-Catholic mission was opened and another crowd filled the church. It was impossible to judge exactly the number of non-Cath olics present, but taking the number of questions asked there must have been quite a gathering. It was grat ifying to the preachers and Catholics. Clearing the way was exactly what it was intended to be, that is, the stating of what Catholics do not believe. Tuesday, the lecture on the Blessed Virgin showed how reasonable is the worship given to the mother of God by Catholics. Wednesday, the Church's attitude towards marriage add divorce was clearly .and forcibly explained. It was shown that the Church holds marriage to be a sacrament, it also maintains its unity, sanctity and un dissolubility for ever, hence divorce, and also its opposition to mixed mar riages. Every one has expressed themsaeves as highly pleased with this course of lecture and the attend ance proves this fact beyond doubt.

Whs..,m - Qu rI Her Husband's Ghost By F A. MCHEL Enocb i'ogram was a farmer in the west when the see~.tlin in huch lie lived was in slow process of settlement. Lit had pre-empted a quarter sectiou uo land on a prairie and built a log house em it There he dwelt alone. Strange it is that there are men who can be content only when far away from all other persons. The famous hunter Daniel Boone was one of these, and Enoch Pogram was another. In the spring he prepared his laud. planted. tended his fields. keeping them tree from weeds during the suml mer. and in the autumn, having gath ered his crops, went forth with his rifle to provide meat for his winter use. Returning one night with a plentiful supply of venison and bear meat. he went to bed. The next morning was clear and cool. Enoch we. out to the tin basin located on a ben o to perform his ablutions when he was astonished to see far across the plain a log cabin with a man standing near it. Enoch was much disgruntled. If be had been at home when that cabin was being erected he would have tak en measures to prevent its being finish ed. He was not sure that it had not been built on his own land. He would go at once to investigate. Turning, be went into his cabin to get his ritle, for he was not sura but there would be trouble between him and this new squatter, and when be came out the other man was just emerging from bhis cabin also and with a gun. Pogram started for his neighbor's cabin, and his neighbor advanced to meet him. ePogram. who carried bts rile in his right hand below his hip. raised it to a level with his chest in order to have it ready In case of need. The other also raised his weapon. "Looks as though there was goin' to be more fightin' than talkin'." mot tered Pogram. and he brought his piece to his shoulder. His enemy was ready for him, bringing bhis own gun to ex actly the same position as Pogram. "You drop that guns" shouted Pogroam at the top of his voicee The man held his weapon firmly to his shoulder and seemed to be sbout tg something which Pogrom did not hear. "rve either got to kill him." thought Pogram. "or be'll kill me." He cocked his gun. The other man semed to be going througb a similar motion. Pogram was nervous. Whether or not be really intended to kill his neigh bor he has never been certain. Prob ably be pulled the trigger without In. tending to do so. The neighbor evi dently was not hit. for be stood his ground. He was not sufficiently plain at the distance for Pogrom to discern if be had fired. At any rate. Pogram could not detect smoke issuing from the muzzle of his rifle and didn't even bear a bullet pass him. There were no repeating rifles In those days. and both men dropped the butts of their rifles at the same mo ment to reload. It was a question of life and death with them as to whblcb could load the quicker. The more haste Pogrom made the more his op ponent hurried Roth finished at the same moment. and both fired again at the same moment Pogram was not bit and did not even bear a "ping." They stood for a moment looking at each other. Then It occurred to Po. gram that they were at a greater dis tance from each other than be had supposed. He had a rifle in his cabin that he used for long distance bshooting and went In to get it. He had not used tbts latter rifle for a long whblle. and it was not where be bhd expected to find It. Be hunted for It some time before bitting upon It. then went out again to resume the sboottng. Meanwhile the suan had cleared the hortison and cast some warmth and more light over the prairte. Pogroam looked for his nelghbor, but be wuas not to be seen Probably be had pgone ainto his cabin But the cabin was not there either. Pogram was astonalbed. Had be been irlnl at a phantom? He shuddered. For the first tm e in hb life be felt lonely. He started for the place where be bad seen the cabin wltbh the intention of baving a nearer view Lt there was reslly anything there. He walked several miles without fnding ather a house or a man. Then be met a woman. "8tranger." she aid, "me and my husband settled last week over that (pointing). "YLsterday be took sick and died this mornin'." Pogram started. "I seen his gbot a spell ago," be said. The woman was so distressed that she did not bhear. "I'd be obleeged it you'd give me a bit o' belp. I was goin' to the cabin whar I reckon you live for some one to do somethin' for me I'm dead alone." "So am L" said Pogram. The two went back to the woman's cabin, and Pogram helped ber to bury hebor bhusband and In sceb other ways as she needed. Pogram and the widow, both being lonely,. concluded to live together In Pogram's eabn. Several years pis-ed, when one morning the bhusband went outdoors and saw the cabin he had seen befere and the man standing be side it. He ran beet into the bose, pale and trembling. "What Is Itt?' asked his if, Mart "Yer fuat man!" Mrs. Pogram went out. Qalloweg her hsbannd. They saw the cabt. the ma i tbi time a woman.
