It was the duty of every parent and others who had the training of the "lambs of God," to see that they were trained in such a way that they would not desire to leave God, and turn to the vice...

A better day than yesterday could scarcely have been desired for the out door celebrations in connection with St. Patrick's anniverseary. A trifle warm at times, that did not matter when there wae no more of the exasperating sultrinces of the previous week; and there wee no rain, notwithstanding that the early hours rather threatened a downpour. Under these favorable con ditions the celebration yesterday was a pronounced success, but very much in coesrquence of the able and energetic committee of ladies and gentlemen who, with that magnificent worker Mr J WV Grace, as hon. secretary, had planned overything admirably and carried it through triumphantly. How much the Very Rev Father Higan had advised and assisted will never be known; with his master mind, he was naturally looked to in all matters concerning the anniversary; and to *his energy and counsel the succees of the day must be largely att...
