Lady of Lourdes was only under
construction. About the second

ot the first Holy Mass therein. The

time the church society was up
wards of $11,000 in debt, and had to
facethe'burden-with rather a "blue"
outlook. Today, however, the
church is both completely, and ex
pensively furnished. It -has its
