By direction of the Very Reverend
J. U. Laval, -ims Gueeal etof thS

every church in the diocese in honor
of the twenty ffth anniversary of the
elevation of his Holiness, Leo XIII.
to the Pontifical Throne. At St.
Joseph's Church here the ceremonies
were particularly solemn and impres
sive, and the population attended in
large numbers, considering the had
weather and the deplorable condition
of the roads.
Catholics do well to glorify God
and return their heartfelt thauks for
His Divine goodness in having vouch
safed such a long life and glorious
reign to the Grand Old Man who now
occupies so worthily St. Peter's Chair,
and no doubt on yesterday many a
prayer ascended to the throne of

A Sacrilegious Burglary.
(h) Wednesday morning our com
inity was startled, shocked and
grieved to learn that St. Joseph's
Catholic Church had been burglarized
and desecrated during the night, and
valuable chalices and other sacred
objects stolen. The thieves laid their
sacnlegioui hands even on the taber
nacla containing the consecrated Host,
which they carried awry in their haste
with the vessel in which it reposed.
As soon as the bhwgtary was dis
covered, Sheriff Beary was notified
sad he lost no time in hetaking him.
belf, assisted by deputies, to the scene
of the burglary, with the hounds.
These toA the trail aid fe1le.ed N
to some point on Acadia plantation
where it was lost, presumably on
account of the thieves having past
through water.
The entrance into the eh'irch was
effected by breaking in through a
window of the sacristy. The bur
glars seem to have known their bet -
logs well, and pland. red the chureh
of all its valuab!e sacred vessels
which could be easily carried away.
Among other objects was a beautiful
gold chnlce, the property of Rev.
Father Dubourg, and a chalice which
was highly prized by Rev. Father
Ravoire as a gift to him from his
uncle, the late Rev. Father Ravotre.
* It is estimated that the objects
stolen aggregate is value some
$500 00 The Sheriff and his deputies
have been working on the case asi
duously but without satisfactory re
snits up to the.l present writing.
Every body hopes they will succeed
in capturing the thieves, though the
prospect of success is gloomy. The
burglary was undoubtedly planned
and effected by experts who know
just how and where to dispose of
such booty, which makes their captuse
all the more difficult.
Our Catholic population is deeply
grieved by the heinous sacrilege com
mitted in their church.
