CULL CELEBRANT * J* Celebrated Hie First High Mass In % Home Town St. Bernard’s church was the scene of a most Impressive ceremony on Sunday when Rev. Leo Cull, a former resident of the town, who was recently ordained Into the Dominican order, came back to his home town to read his first mass. Rev. M, P. Mahon, pastor of St. Bernard’s church, in order that the affair should prove more impressive, arranged for a solemn high mass for the occasion, the mass selected being Kormer’s mass in honor of St. James. Fr. Cull w’as celebrant and Rev. Charles Blanchard of Brighton seminary was deacon, with Rev. Edward Conroy of the seminary sub deacon. Rev. Fr. Beasley of Dorchester was master of ceremonies and Rev. Dennis Lynch, curate of St. Bernard’s church was assistant master of cere-monies and incense bearer. Fr. Cull was assisted In saying mass by Rev. Fr. Mahon and Rev. Michael J. Scanlon, former curate of St. Bernard’s and now at the Cathedral, Boston, gave a most eloquent sermon on "The Priesthood.” The choir of tho church furnished most inspiring music with Miss (’atherine Haggerty organist. The soloists were Miss Mary Mulcahy, Mrs. James Laughlin, Miss Helen Fitzpatrick, Miss Margaret Fallon, Miss Winifred O’Neil. Thomas Powers, Philip Flavin and James Laughlin. The church was well filled with the friends of Fr. Cull and many of them took occasion to greet him at the conclusion of the services. Fr. Cull was ordained on Wednesday of last week in Washington, D. C. where he has been in preparation for several years at the Dominican college in that city. Fr. Cull is the son of the late John W. and Mrs. Cull who were old residents of this town. Following the death of Mr. Cull several years ago Mrs. Cull moved to Somerville, where she now resides. The many friends of the young priest will wish him success in the holy field in which he is to labor. EQUAL SUFFRAGE NOTES The Butte Miner says, "Progreso isn’t altogether at a standstill in Europe—Denmark has just instituted ‘woman suffrage.’ Montana herself showed progress when she became a suffrage state in 1914, as did also Nevada. The gains for equal suffrage have been steady, though at first very slow, since Wyoming adopted it in 1869. Another state won it in 1893, two in 1896, one in 1910, one in 1911, three in 1912, two in 1913, and two in 1914. The cause of justice ever advances. Now there are five campaign states. How many will come in in 1915? 18 A LOVER OF CONCORD Mr. and Mrs. James Cudahy and family of Allston were the guests of Mrs. William Wall last Sundav.
