Second—Tuat our white fellow citixens may be raaiie to see that the only seen ity lor the continuance of republican institutions is found in the observance of law by' all, however powerful, and by the extension of its protection to all, how'ever weak. That He will make them see that in permitting these lynchings they are towing a w’ind which will grow to a whirlw'ind in the time of their children. Finally, that they will remember our lat iy enslaved condition, that they will not forget our centuries of toil w’ithout requittal i the fields of ih ir father.», and that instead of visiting us with proscription and nnirdt'r, they w'ill be patient w'ith our sliortcoraings and encourage us tn rise to that Iqvel of intelligence and virtue which marks the cliarac-ter .1 good citizen.

From the opening of St. Peter’s ’Church, which was in 188G, up to the present services were always conducted without interrup lion and especially during the holy season of liCnt, until this year. The serious illness of our belovec Pastor the scarcity of Priests in this diocese just at this imnortant junO'» tur*\ prevented our good Bishop from supplying the vacancy, hence for the first time 8t. Peter’s congregation took no part in that grand ana gh.r*» ious Catholic privilege and custom of church decoration w'hich is a special pride of theirs, as they are devoted and proud of their Church and Pas tor. God in His wisdom, so ordain d, however that there should be change this year, and instead of the b aiiliful and brilliant display o^’ flowers and caudles upon our altar and a happy and proud congregation. 'J’he Altar and church were draped in mourning, in respect to the mem mory of our beloved Pastor and the Church was filled from morning un* til night with frienis of the Dead Priest, members of the congregation. Pupils ol the school and the Catho» lie community in general, as the remains were remove I from St. Xa-vie ’s Infirmary to St, Peters,s Rectory to lay in state until the day of the funeral w’hich took place on Holy Thursday. Last year (Holy Thursday) the congregation met and united in their adoration of the Blessed Sacrament, asking Go j’s blessing upon themselves, their families and upon their church. This year (Holy Thursday) the congregation met in sadness to pay the last tribute of respectful devotion to their dead pastor, and friend and to unite w'ith the clergy in prayin' ior the repose of his soul Ix)ng l>cfore the appointed hou for the funeral services, the church w'as uncomfortably picked with peo pie of all s zcs, ages, comjilexions id professions. ’I’he Catholic Or» phans in chjrge of the good Sisters of Charity' occupied sea s w thin the Sanctuary, as every available seat was otherwise oi’cupied.

HY MRS. 1.. n. rL'LLKIt. t)ur story commences on oae of those delightfully beautiful April lays, when all nature has laid »side ler wintry garments and is appear* ng ill her rajiturously beautiful garb ol spring. "Fbe little Boiirough of L , situateil on the West branch of the Su aiueh viiiia, wh cb reüected from its’ silvery bosom, the smiling faces of the proud Alleghe lies, \\as indeed, picturesque and beautiful. This little Hamlet by the water’s edge, was said to be the wealthiest in the county. Here toj; stool the grand old B University, which towering high on College Hill, seemed to say the young men, who came lither for instruction, thy Maker is thy teacher. Along the banks of this beautiful stream, the students spent most of their leisure time. But on this particular afternoon, Leo King strolled the bank alone. His usually pleasant countenance wore a perplexed ex» ircssioii, and as he stopped and care-es-ly threw sj, jiebhle into the water Liefow, he 4aid to himself just as that pebble (disturbed the calm of the water just so has my love for .«illiaii broken llie jieacC and calm f my mind. For lour long years le bad loved her, yet he had not ,‘V’en liiated to lier. llow coul 1 he? le ha<l nothing to oiler her aside from lii»i great love for her. 'I’hri'e months more and his school life would be over and he would then start out into life with no other ))ros}>ects than the possib lity of suiue day making a name and a fortune. 'I'nis to some men would seem very bright, but to a young man bead over heels in lov’e, is rather discouraging. Leo bad come to the conclasion that life without Lillian would not be worth living. But he asked himself would he be acting the part of a true man, to ask her to become his wife with the present discouraging out» look? He thought long and eamest-ly' over the matter and at last decided that he would tell of his love and if she loved him truly, she would be willing to wait for him. Yes, he said he would tell her that very evening. Just then his thoughts were disturbed by the ringing of the college bed him of his heart aod give him her’s in return. «-    *    *    *    -N- □ The close of this beautiful ’April day found Lillian Alcove sitting in her cosy little parlor lost in reverie. Lillian was not beautitul, yet there was something interesting and at tractive about her. She was graceful talented and sweet tempered. She was wondering why Leo had called so little of late and so little to say of late when he did call. And she asked herself why she continued lo love him when she was sure that he cared for her only as a friend? For Lillian believed that he loved Clara Draper, who was her 8up**rior in beauty. Yes Clara was bewitching-ly beautiful, but she lacked those tine sterling qualities of which Lil Han’s ciharacter was made up. She lovt d Leo as far as her shallow soul would allow her to love any one and she invited him to her house as often as possible and always tried to look her best. But as the dazzle of the false diamond may attract but cannot hold the attention of the expert, even so Clara Draper’s outward beauty failed to attract and hold the affections of this deep character reading student. To Leo, Lillian was the only jewel worth wearing. Her artless simplicity was what charmed him and her pure, lof*y character was to him what Hawthorne’s great Stone Face was to the village lad—it was his moral teacher. Yet Lillian was unconscious of the influence of her character on his love for her, and tonight as she sat think* mg of him her heart seemed nearly to break. She thought of the many pleasant evenings they had spent together, and yet lie always acted as a brother. She smiled sadly as she said to herself, “1 have played jthe role ot sister badly; at any rate, I shall lean my heart upon ray slaves no longer longer,” and rising, she took h r seat at the piano and began to play a lively waltz, unconciously the pent up sadness of her heart would creep out, and she found herself playing one of the sad sweet airs of Mendelssohn. Tiring of tliis, she took of Shakespeare and was soon buried in “Love’s Labor Lost.” It W’as eight o’clock w'hen» Leo rang the door bell, aad Lillian sup-ising that she was reading her own late 111 “Love’s Labor Lost,” w'as too busily engaged to answer the bell, but said, “Come in I” “Good eveiiiug, AFiss Lillian I’’ said Leo. “Gooil evening, Mr. King! I beg your pardon for not opening the door, but I hope the d lor lo success will opened by you as the door to my hctse,” “'ikank you, Miss Lillian, but I would rather have future happiness than success,” said Leo. “But Mr. King,” said Lillian, “I thought that success ami liappiuess were twins sisters and always went side by side.” “Sometimes they do, and sometimes they do not,” said Leo. “Then” said Lillian, “1 w’ish you success in all things that will bring happintss to your life; but how haggard you lo k! I am afraid that you are becoming a bookworm in your scieiuiiic researches, and that it is making sadly against you.” “No,” said Leo, “you are a¡book-worm, for did I not catch you buried ill the leaves of a bo^l/?” “Yes, but I was reading Shakespeare, my favorite author, because he seems to know' the hearts of men and women so well,” said Lillian. “What W'ere you reading,” asked Leo. “I W'as reading ‘Love’s Labor Lost’” replied Lillian. “Do think that love’s labor can be lost Miss J.(iIlian ?” “Not absolutely, but in some cases,” replied Lillian. “What do you think, Mr. King?” “Do you w'ish me to speak from experience, Aliss Lillian.” “Fi'v.111 nothing else ?” she replied half serious, and half joking. ‘•When 1 made my deductiaii fr .m books and figures 1 did not think so, but tince J am making them from ]>ersonal expei ien'ie, 1 am inclined to think so Mi.»s Jhliian. ’ “Experience is a stream in which we all must fish, but I ho|>e you have not li»hcd iu vain, Air. ivmg. But tell me, what you mean ?” “Will you allow me to spoak frankly, iNlis Lillian ?” “Ccrtainlv 1 will, for 1 never •f    f thought you could speak any other w'ay,” replied Ihllian, “1 mean this, and only this. Miss Lillian. For four long years 1 have fished in the stream of your associa» tion, but have never caught one single token of affection.” Had night turned to day, or spring to autumn in one moment Lillian could not have been more surprised. Looking up abashed and half disconcerted, she replied in wo» manly voice:    “M.r.    King, I have never dreamt that you thought any» thing of me but as a sister and have always so interpreted your actions.” “But what has been the ground of this interpretation ?” asked Leo. “Simply this, the difference tween us is so great. 1 know 1 1*0* so many accomplishment in wnion there are so many other ladies wna excel me- so far, that I cannot^^ se© how or why you should love oa®* “M-iss Lillian I have seen ladies with more sham and visible adorn'^ ment ihat you, but I love not for what you have, not for what yott know, not for what you appear to be, b it for w’hat you aRB,” l»eo replied. “Mr. King, there is nothing that a woman need to do with more cau^ tion than to thr >w open the doors of her heart to a man. I have walked and talked with you, I have sounded the depths of your soul. I believe you speak the truth, and confess very freely that the love you have confessed finds a respou e in tny heart,” said Lillian, “Then will you be mine for life ?” asked Leo. “I will,” replied Lillian “Here is my hand, and in it the ke/ to my heart, take it and keep both, for both are yours, and shall be íínt^ ever more.” PHILADELPHIA. All the solemn ceremonies of Holy Week was ob> served and well attended at St. Petv er Claver, On Good Friday evening every seat was occupied and even the. aisles were crowded by those who come to hear the Rev. Father Brady 6. J. of St, Joseph’s deliver his beautiful and forcible sermon on the Passion of our Lord. Never since the dedication of the St. Peter Clav r church presented such a beautiful scene as it did on Easter Sunday*^ The^altar and sanctuary were nicely decorated with flowers, palms and terns by the masterly hands of Miss Addie Campbell. The music which was under the direction of Prof H. Murry with Mrs. Brennan as or«» ganist, was as follows:    Mozart’s Twelth Mass and Lambilotte’s Res gina Ceali at the Offertory. The pas> lor Rev. Father Nolan celebrated Mass and with his brilliancy of sp ech delivered a very interesting sermon on th^ resurrection of our Lord. Mr. John T. Maxwell is to be complimented tor the beautiful raaiiner in which he sung “resurrec» tion” at the conclusion of Mass. There were also a large attendance at 4 o’clock Vespers the choir * sang Koseivig’s Vespers with Mozart’s Vlagn ficat, Lambilotte’s Regina Ceali, O iSalutaris and Tantum Ergo ay Goeb.
