Jackson, formerly Congregational pas tor here. With Sewell K. Crocker of Ta cotna, Wash., his chauffeur, he arrived in New York last Saturday having travelled nearly 0,000 miles. Hardships innumerable were encount ered on the trip, but all discomforts were overlooked in the pride they felt that they are the first persons to cross the continent In a motor car, although many enthusiasts have undertaken the task and failed. The machine in which they crossed was cov ered with mud an inch deep, the accumu lation from a score of states, which tey brought home with them. Dr. Jackson said : "We left San Francisco May 23 and first ran through California to the Sierra moun tains. From the range we proceeded to the north central part of Oregon, going practically 1,800 miles north. We then went southeast, almost directly, striking the railroad at Ontario, when we followed the State line to Pocatello. 'We then ran to Granger, where we struck our first rain, and we have been in it ever since. We ran to eastern Omaha and thence east to Chicago. From Chica go we ran to ButUIo, and over what Is the new State road through New York. "We have traveled (1,000 miles, during the latter part of which we have been hin dered a great deal by the excessive rains. During the time we have been on the road we have been idle about 19 days. Part of that time it was for pleasure that we stopped, and again to allow our expre-s to catch up with us." lhrough the entire trip Dr. Jackson was accompanied by a bull pup, "Bud." The dog has a pair of goggles to protect its eves Irom the dust. "While we were in Oregon desert we lost all our provisions. It was 3(1 hours before we came to a place where we could obtain food. Fortunately we were able to carry a supply of drinking water with us, but at times this became exhausted. The hrst meal after we lost our provisions we secured at the camp of a sheep herder. o banquet ever gave me half the enjoy ment. The man had seeu no one fur 10 days and would take no pay.

Had he not, fortunately, been forced to abandon his work because of ill health he doubtless would never have become a phraser of metaphysical thought.

REQUIEM MASS FOR LEO XIII Celebrated at SUIonica's Church A LARGE CONGREGATION Eulogy Delivered by Fr. P. M. McKen- na Visiting Pastors Assisted in Services. St. Monica's church of this city this morning participated in the observance of the general mourning over the death of rope Leo XIII, by means of the solemn services of requiem, and a large crowd of people filled the church edifice. Four or ganizations attended in a body, the Ladies' Altar society, the Ladies' Aid, St. John's Court, C. O. F and Barre Council, Knights of Columbus. The seats were designated by the various colors of the organization, the Ladies' Aid by purple and white, the Knights by purple alone and the Foresters by black and white. The decorations of the church, both in terior and exterior, were in black and white, lhe interior decorations were completed this morning. The altar was decorated in black with just a little touch of white. The large pillars were a'so wound with black. The windows were covered also with black, giving the church a sombre appearance. Fr. Leonard of Waterbury was celebrant. Fr. O'Neil of Northiield was deacon and Fr. MeKenna sub-deacon. Fr. Ilickey directed the choir. Miss Annie G. Sullivan was organist. The eulogy of Pope Leo was given by the pastor, Fr. McKenna.who had enjoyed the privilege of conversation v, ith the late pontiff, so that be was well fitted to speak of him. Fr. McKenna said in brief, "To day we are called upon to endure the greatest loss that can come upon us in this world. Leo XIII, the great and good pon tiff, has passed away. The church is now without a visible bead, without a helsman, but it is not alone the church which mourns. The whole world mourns, too. It is not like a national loss as - when President McKinley fell at the hand of the vile assassin and when the queen of Eng land died. Nor is it the same as when Israel monrned 30 days for Moses. The death of Leo has cast a shadow not only over one nation but over the whole world. Moses wa the law-giver and the guide. Leo was the guide, the father and the teacher, not alone of one race or nation. Great are the powers of the suc cessors of St. Peter, the representative of Goa, or Jems ihnst, living, teaching and working among men with God's authority and power. Every bishop and every priest acts un der the jurisdiction of the supreme pon tiff, or his acts are either null or sinful. The ollice and the power have passed down to many popes for l'joo years, and many oi tne names are memorable in the world's history, some of the greatest men the world has ever seen or ever will see. If you will, there may have been creater popes than Leo XI 11, but never has one left the papacy more universally beloved than Pope Leo XIII. When Leo succeeded to the position the church was iu great trouble. It was per secuted. But Leo, true to his name, did not despair, knowing the church of God had weathered many a storm. He had faith in God's promises, and he patiently awaited God's time. Though nominally a prisoner in tne Vatican, witnout an army or navy, and without the shedding of one drop of blood, this man overshadowed the temporal government. He forced the whole world to realize that the papacy is the most powerful on earth. Pope Leo en tered with vigor into the spirit of the world, for the church and for humanity. lie taugnt wherein was error and truth. ruin and salvation. He loved the poor with his whole heart and yearned to better their condition. He denounced divorce, the cruelty of the great corporations, an archy and socialism. He was idolized by the world chiefly on account of his per sonality, nis tenderness of heart, his fath erly affection and his gentleness." ir. McKenna then went on to tell of his audience in private with Leo, and how he counted it among the greatest pleasures of his life. He told how cordially he was received by Leo, and was given his bless ing.. A HEAVY STONE. One Weighing 47 Ton Brought Down Yet- , terday. The Barre railroad brought down from the K. L.
