Christmas Day marked the fiftieth
anniversary of the first mass that was *
offered in St. Mary’s Catholic Church, f
of this city, the Rev. William H. 1
Gross, C. SS. R., officiating as cele- 1
brant. It is proposed by the pastor, *
the Rev. Joseph P. Nolan, to cele- '
brate the Golden Jubilee of the '
church the first Sunday in June. The f
summer time has been selected on ac- (
count of the weather in December 1
being usually of an inclement nature, *
which would interfere with the at- *
tendance. Also, it being Christmas s
Day, pastors whom Father Nolan ex
pects to be present at the event, would i
not come on account of the services 1
in their own churches.
The masses on Christmas were held 1
at 6:00, 8:00 and 10:00 a. m. At the 1
six o’clock mass the pastor delivered i
a discourse on the subject, “The In
carnation of Christ.” A young choir (
of 40 voices, trained by the pastor,
sung Battenan’s mass in F., “Adeste j
Fidelis,” by Nevelle, “Noel,” by ]
Adam, and “Glory Be to God.” The (
annual Christmas treat to the children
of the parish and Sunday-school was
given in St. Mary’s Hall on the after-
noon of Christmas Day. The hall was

of Christmas songs and recitations ]

Too Weak to Wear Coat—Couldn’t
Speak Above Whisper—Bear’s
Emulsion Cured Him.
John D. Bear, Elkton, Va.
Dear Sir: Eight years ago I was a
great sufferer from weakness, weak
lungs and pleurisy and coughed night
and day and raised and expectorated
a quart in 24 hours. I had as many as
four or five night sweats in one night,
my pulse would run as high as 140
and my temperature was about 103.
I was so weak I could hardly walk to
the dining-room. I had no appetite
and everything I saw nauseated me.
X coulden’t stand the weight of my
coat on my shoulders, and could not
speak above a whisper at times. I
was in one of the best sanitariums in
the South, but seemed to be growing
worse every day and was about to
give up when a friend asked me to
try Bear’s Emulsion. I did so and
had taken it but two days when I be
gan to improve. My appetite im
proved, and I felt stronger, I coughed
very little, my lungs stopped hurting
me and it was not long until I could :
walk two miles a great deal easier
than I could walk around the sanita
rium before taking the Petroleum
Emulsion. I took 18 bottles and to
day I am a well man and owe a great
deal to Emulsion.
