LETTER TO TIE EDITi A DAY IN THE SUNNY SOUTH. Key West, Fla., Feb. 26, 1914. Editor of The Catholic Bulletin: Rev. Dear Father: It will be difficult for a denizen of the frosty North to imagine the daz zling sunshine and balmy breezes of this Ash Wednesday at the "Gem of the Emerald Seas." As we wend our way to attend Mass, the roses and oleanders are filling the air with fragrance, the cocoanut palms are rustling and sway ing, and it is really too hot to walk the short distance of six or seven blocks. Mary, Star of the Sea, seems such an appropriate name for the church of this busy seaport with its harbor crowded with innumerable ships of every size and description from the stately ocean liner to the tiny sponger with its rag of a sail no larger than my lady's lunch cloth. The church is a beautiful building of native stone with two graceful spires. It has one feature peculiar to itself, namely, the windows. The up per part of stained glass is set high in the walls, while the lower extends to the floor with shutters which may be closed during the sudden tropical storms or opened to let in every stray breeze. The light inside is subdued by them, so the church proved a wel come retreat from the glare of the dazzling sun on the snow-white streets. The Sisters of the Holy Name from the Convent of the Immaculate Conception nearby ushered in their pupils, so we knew we were just on time for the services. Over the main altar, the large stained glass window represents the Virgin Mother standing on a crescent moon, in the midst of a storm at sea. Rays of light shine from a lighthouse and from a star on the brow of the Virgin, while the In fant in her arms has His tiny hands extended to help a vessel in distress. After the distribution of the ashes, the pastor, Reverend Father Friend, S. J., one of the most beloved men in Key West, conducted us about the grounds, pointing out the points of interest. The immense cement cis tern which contained 45,000 gallons of rainwater made us realize that Key West depends very much on the rain for its supply of drinking water. We spent an hour at the Convent of the Immaculate Conception, which is located in beautiful grounds adjoin ing the church property. It is the old est educational institution in Key West, having been founded in 1868 by the Sisters of the Holy Name from Montreal. The first school was open ed in a building which had been used as a barracks during the Civil War. In 1878 a tract of eight and one-half acres was selected as the site of the present imposing building of native coral rock quarried on the island. In 1898 the Sisters placed the en tire institution and their services as nurses at the disposition of the naval authorities for hospital purposes. The infirmary of the convent was used as the operating room. At the close of the war, two adjoining buildings were turned over to the Sisters by the gov ernment. One of these buildings is now St. Cecilia's Hall and is used by the music pupils for practicing and musical entertainments the other is now the kindergarten, one of the most interesting departments we visited. The room has an ideal location in a bower of roses with a latticed porch in which were arranged tables and chairs for the little ones to have their luncheon parties. Another feature was a merry-go-round with a music box at tachment. The children operated the apparatus and while it was in motion the music box played familiar tunes for their enjoyment. The art department is justly famed for the splendid work done by its pu pils and we reluctantly withdrew from a room filled with treasures which our limited time would not allow us to enjoy. Sister Rosalind Was an ideal guide and kept us in constant excla mations of delight. At a signal from her the folding doors slid back and the entire lower floor of eight school rooms was thrown into one long vista of 294 feet. After visiting the bal conies near the roof for a view of the Gulf of Mexico on one side and the Atlantic Ocean on the other we de scended to the rose garden, where we said adieu and departed with mem ories of a golden hour with Mary Im maculate. Yours, very sincerely, MRS. C. D. WRIGHT. 8AINT CLARA COLLEGE, SINSINA WA, WISCONSIN. The Feast of Saint Thomas Aquinas of 1914 was signalized by the courtesy and kindness of Archbishop Keane of Dubuque, who accepted the invitation to spend the day at Sinsinawa. On the eve of the Feast, the Archbishop addressed the students on Saint Thomas, treating the well-known life of the Saint in a manner altogether new and inspiring. On the eighth instant, Br. Clinton Babcock, of Boston, Massachusetts, gave an illustrated lecture on "The Parthenon." The speaker, a genuine teacher filled with enthusiasm, held the unflagging attention of even the youngest of the audience for nearly two hours. .*.-•. «r^!f ".v^.r AN INCIDENT IN THE LIFE OF THI8 CATHOLIC STATESMAN AND PATRIOT. In looking up some facts the other day concerning the life of Charles Carroll and his relations to George Washington, a rather interesting bit of information or rather an anecdote, was fund among some reminiscences of the distinguished revolutionary character published in the Baltimore American of July 4, 1888, from the pen of Captain Jenkins, of Baltimore, writes R. C. Gleaner in the Catholic Columbian. He wrote that during the winter of 1830-1, he saw Charles Car roll almost every Sunday at his de votions during the service at the Bal timore Cathedral, but only once had he an opportunity to converse with liim. "This favor was given me," he writes, "at the instance of the Arch bishop. A number of altar boys, of whom I was one, were, by Mr. Car roll's request, introduced, and for an hour we remained near him in the rece'ption line. We were all ar ranged in line on his departure from the house. As he passed along in front of us he placed his hand on our heads and said: 'God bless you. Love God, honor your country, respect your superiors, civil as well as religious, defend your country's flag and the Constitution.' "Mr. Carroll was then about ninety four years of age. His frame was thin and somewhat bent, but his voice was clear and strong, his walk firm and quick, his eyes mild and with a most benevolent look. His hair was quite thin and white." Mr. Jenkins concludes his recollec tions by remarking: "In all my long life I have never seen his counter part, neither in this or any other clime." The above words of Carroll to the group of altar boys may well be remembered for their intrinsic value as well as for the circumstances that gave rise to their expression. DURHflMJATHEDBAL LEGEND OF ITS FOUNDING—COM PLETED IN 1242. I l»*/ tUIBLESCARROLL Probably most people in America who own Durham cows associate the name "Durham" with the county of that name in England, where this breed of cows originated. There is an interesting legend connected with the bovine's ancient relatives across the water. In the seventh century there lived on the Scottish border a monk named Cuthbert. Upon his death, in 687, sur viving monks preserved his remains with pious care, guarding them in a local church. When dangers arose from the marauding Danes, the monks gathered their treasures and relics including St. Cuthbert's sacred coffin, and wandered for seven years through the north of England, until St. Cuth bert miraculously revealed to them that his bones were to rest at Dun holme, later known as Durham. Though happy in this knowledge they knew not where to find Dunholme, so journeyed on. Watching for clews as to their destination, a monk heard one woman ask another if her cow, which had gone astray, had been found. Much to his joy and relief the reply came: "Yes, in Donholme." Dun holme means Hill Island, and on a rocky cliff eighty feet above the river Wear, the holy bones were deposited and there the imposing Durham Cathe dral came into being. Several hundred years passed be fore the noble and dignified structure was completed. But during all these years the ?tory of the woman and her cow was told to those connected with the Cathedral and the city which grew up around it. The last portion, built in 1242, was the beautiful Chapel of the Nine Al tars at the extreme east end of the Cathedral Church. Near the Nine Altars stands the forms, sculptured in stone, of the woman and her short horn Durham cow. They were placed there in 1775, nearly one thousand years after the woman found her cow QUEEN OF SCOTS Three hundred and twenty-seven years ago Mary, Queen of Scots, was sentenced to death on the charge of conspiring against the life of Queen Elizabeth. On the fatal morning she rose early and repaired to her oratory to beg grace and strength for her con flict. The sheriff's step was heard, and she took her crucifix in her hand and repaired with him to the hall where she was to die. A moment she stop ped to comfort Sir Andrew Melville, who flung himself on his knees before her lamenting her melancholy fate. A last appeal she made for a Catholic confessor and was denied, then, re signedly, she ascended to the scaffold. In the presence of all gathered to witness the last act of her life's dolor ous drama, she thanked God for the opportunity given her to make open confession of her Catholic faith, for which she protested she was to die, and not for designs on the throne and the life of England's Queen. "As Thy arms, O God, were stretched out upon the Cross," she prayed, "so receive my soul into the arms of Thy mercy, and forgive me my sins." Her handkerchief was pinned over her eyes and she was led to the block. The Queen kneeling prayed in an unfaltering voice: "Into Thy hands, O Lord, I commend my spirit." Unnerved by the sobs and groans of the crowd, the headsman missed his aim, and only at the third stroke of his axe was the head severed from the body. The exe cutioner held up the head, and the muscles of the face were so strongly convulsed that it could not be recog nized. "God save Queen Elizabeth," he said, "So perish all her enemies! answered the Dean of Peterborough. "So perish all the enemies of the Gos pel!" exclaimed the fanatical Earl of Kent. Not a voice was heard to say "Amen." Party feeling was absorbed in admiration and pity. 8T. JOSEPH'S H08PITAL Training 8chool for Nurses.
