The appointment of Mgr. Dennis O'Connell to the rectorship of the Cath olic university at Washington will bring back into prominence a man who for the past eight years had, through the once powerful influence of certain American prelates, backed by that of still more powerful dignitaries in Borne, been in retirement. In 1S83 Mgr. (then Father) O'Connell was Cardinal (or rather Archbishop) Gibbons' private secretary. He ac companied the archbishop to Rome on the occasion of the niemorablfe council of the American episcopate which had been summoned by the propaganda at the pope's order. Soon after he was intrusted with the responsible position of rector of the American college, in the Via Umilta, where until 1893 or 1SD4 he was an active, albeit not an ob trusive, factor in the great struggles betwee...

When the bishop of Colorado, Dr. Sanford Olmsted, was rector of the Church of St. Asaph, at Bala, Pa., his ready, wit made him at once the admiration and the fear of the people of the neighborhood, says the New Yom Tribune. Jlhere is a fashionable golf and riding club •t Uala. with grounds that adjoin those of the little church, and it happened on a certain afternoon, when Dr. Olmsted was holding a special service, that a number of golnng clubmen were caught in a drenching shower, and hurried for shelter into the church.

"Possibly no woman ever lived," says one of her friends, "who has given so Imany years of active work tp a re formatory measure and has been leftf with such wonderful vitality." Born at South Adams, Mass., in 1820, this girl of Quaker parentage was early taught the importance of courage, self reliance and of thinking and acting for oneself. Indeed, courage has always been herstrongestcharacteristic. Miss Anthony's early education was ob tained from a school supported by her father for his own children and those of the sneighborhood, and later at a Quaker boarding-school in W...

Time and again acceptances for the same social function had arrived from both, only to be succeeded by a hastily written apology or excuse itorn one or the other. Apparently, then, fate was against their meet ing. Each had been willing to for ward the well intended plans for bringing them tygether, but hitherto in vain. One evening Miss Browne, having with he'r a visiting cousin, had issued cards for a reception, and had sent one of them to Mr. Dunn.

WESTERN CANADA AROUSING GREAT INTEREST. Until the last five or six years but little attention was, given to' that vast area of grain-producing land lying north of the 49th parallel and immediately adjoining the northern boundaries of Minnesota and Dakota. The Canadians themselves were •ware of the wealth that lay there, but being rotable to fully occupy it, they hdve asked the Americans to assist them in converting the land from its virgin state to one that will largely supplement the grain-produc ing area of the North American Con tinent, and the response has been mopt liberal. During the year 1901 upwards of 20,000 from the United States went over to Canada, being induced to set tle there by the reports that reached them of the success of those who had preceded them during the previous years. This 20,000 was increased to 30,000 during the year 1902, and it is fully expected that there will be fully SO,000 during the present year. The work of the immigration branch of the Canadian ...

In the heart of the exclusive Back Bay of Boston, under the very eaves of aristocratic Trinity church, a little pawnshop flourishes, remarkable not only for its environments, but in that it undoubtedly is the cheapest in the world, the only one conducted by a church and the only one that is run solely on a philanthropic basis. Four per cent, a year is its rate, so cheap that every other pawnshop in the city and in the world, in fact, would be plunged into bankruptcy if run on a similar plan. One can raise money on anything, from a tool to a jewel, at Trinity Chap el pawnshop. The sexton at the chapel door said: "Yes, they do lend money here," and he pointed out a little room in the rear of the church, where the money is lent and jewels received. It is a plain, uncarpeted, bare little room, big enough to h...
