Defiance Express (Newspaper) - August 5, 1903, Defiance, Ohio In the monks of the United Stites Vas Peculiar Catholic brotherhood which maintains three monasteries in this country. N the present Day of materialism there still survives in the Trappist monks theirs the most austere of the Catholic orders Stern asceticism and hourly striving after spirituality. The Trappist the a silent monks a have three com Piuni ties in american one in Canada one at Gethsemane ky., and one in the Vicinity of Dubuque la. There was a period when the Trappist were not so strict so unworldly As now and history tells us an interesting Story of the changes the years worked in their ideals and manner of life. The Trappist Are a Branch of the cistercian order they received their name from the Abbey of la Trappe situated in Normandy France founded in 1140. The Abbey which was governed Many years by the a commend Atory abbots fell into decay and by the seventeenth Century the discipline of the monastery had become very much relaxed. But that Century Marks the great reformation that took place at la Trappe and the establishment of a practically new religious order one noted for its extraordinary austerities. The Reform was started by the celebrated Armand Jeanie Bouthellier de Ranche a Man that in Kentucky from Early times has shown herself kindly to the Catholic Church but the Trappist wandered somewhat before finally settling in that state sojourning for awhile in Pennsylvania for a time in Missouri and also for a season in Illinois. The present Kentucky Colony was founded by members of the order that arrived in the autumn of the year 1848 landed at new Orleans from there went by boat to Louisville and then walked the sixty Miles remaining. Their monastery is called the Abbey of Gethsemane. The Domain of the monks residing Here comprises 1,700 acres of land. Both wooded and tillable lands belong to the estate and it is a place of great Beauty and fruitfulness. Architecturally one does not find a great Deal to please but the gardens and Trees Are of loveliness sufficient. The Trappist gardens Are far famed and this one in Kentucky is a wonderfully kept place. Or. Allen remarks that certain types of monks have been painted for us from time to time the intellectual the rub Cund and others he characterizes those in this Retreat in Kentucky As a working he writes that none Are exempt from work there is no place among them for the slug Kings and Queens. It is said that King Edward has Given it to be understood quietly that he considers a Toast As much honoured by those who drink water As by those who prefer something stronger. The Khedive whose tour in Europe is exciting so much interest is still on the sunny Side of 30. He was educated in Vienna has a charming personality and his intelligence is altogether of a higher sort than that of his father the Khedive Tewfik. He has but one wife and is understood to be devoted to her and their children four Little daughters and a son and heir just four years old. Queen Helena of Italy has a very practical knowledge of cooking. At her fathers homely and unpretentious court Queen Helena Learned Many useful things and among them the Art of cooking. The Prince of Montenegro insisted that All his children should learn a Trade a Rule which by the Way obtains in the German Imperial family and the future Queen became not merely a Plain Cook but also skilled in the preparation of curious sweetmeats and patisserie of which the orientals Are so fond. The English bodyguard of gentle men at arms which is the a nearest guard to his majesty is limited in numbers and composed of officers who have seen Active service who Are a certain height and under 50 years of age at the Date of appointment. His majesty personally selects the officers who form his English guard and the appointment is looked upon As a great prize. The gentlemen at arms have a very Good Billet being called Ripen for duty at All court ceremonies but never going out of England. The Captain receives $6,000 a year pay. Contrary to the general belief the Young King of Spain is quite a muscular fellow. He proved that to professor Lorenz during a recent visit of the famous specialist at Madrid. The King educational interests. William Darrach who graduated from Yale in 1897, and who has been appointed one of the lecturing physicians at the p. And s. Hospital in new York City is the youngest Man who Ever held the position. The departure from Russia of or. Gustav Tammann professor of chemistry at the University of Dorpat to accept a chair at Gottinger has been much commented on because he was the last remaining eminent instructor at that once famous seat of learning. A proof of the change of educational ideas at Oxford and Cambridge is the growing popularity of the natural sciences. There is at the same time a decadence of the mathematical Tripos at Cambridge. It has always stood first until this year when at a jump it has gone to fourth place. Prof. Irwin Rautenstrauh. Of Ashington University who formerly lived in Sedalia kan., has asked the courts to change his name. Nobody in this country has Ever been Able to pronounce it right and the professor has got tired of being called a Rotten Straw which was conferred upon Tim in his school Days. Sir Gilbert Parker has come Forward to reinforce Cecil Rhodes scheme for the knitting together of higher education in English speaking countries by calling a conference in London to discuss this and related topics. It is expected that a permanent Imperial Council will be formed to have supervision of these matters. The conference is to be followed by an a Allied conferences dinner a at which or. Balfour will preside. Edward l. Henry the academician is considerably Over 60 years old but his Youthful smooth face aside from his Gray hair has deceived Many persons. He is an inveterate joker and also exceedingly absent minded. This is an actual experience he had at the Century men and affairs. Received the surgeon. The Queen j club not Long ago. It was a reception Mother was present at the audience during which professor Lorenz happened to remark on Tho wonderful muscular development of her son. A see whether i am said the King and he proceeded to pick his Mother up. Then he carried her around and or. Henry was very Busy talking to a fellow artist when something irritated his ankle. He stooped Down lifted the Edge of the Bottom of one of the other Many a trouser legs calmly scratched the other Many a ankle just above the Patent tie and replacing the the room three times much to the garment went on talking wholly Oliv amazement of or. Lorenz and the embarrassment of her majesty. Heard in Paris. Ious of his action and apparently perfectly satisfied. A set of dead failures. In the Kitchen of the Gethsemane monastery. Youth was by no Means reputed ascetic. Though belonging to the clergy he led a Gay life in Paris was Active in sports and famed As a Gay Cavalier. 4 he was a favorite with Cardinal Richelieu who helped him to More than one Benefice. But at the age of 36 worldly pleasures ceased to satisfy and he retired to the Convent of la Trappe and for 36 years thereafter Laboured with penitential Zeal for the reformation of the monastery. The monks were forbidden to use fish meat eggs and wine. Intercourse with outsiders was not allowed and manual labor made obligatory. Self was abased prayer almost perpetual. To the monastery came the poor the helpless the penitent and a Welcome and Asylum was Given All. Many of in the gardens. Noble blood sought Here to expiate past sins the abbeys roof sheltered pilgrims from far and near Rich and poor. For too years after the death of de Ranche faithful followers maintained his reforms at la Trappe. Then came the French revolution those mad years when religion was Tabooed the Trappist had to leave France the Abbey of la Trappe became a foundry for Cannon. Many went to Switzerland. Others to Germany still others settled in Russia. After the restoration in France they regained by Purchase their beloved old Abbey in Normandy and it became the head monastery of the order. Among the Branch monasteries of the present May be mentioned those in great Britain France Belgium Germany and the United states. Or. James Lane Allen writing in the Century tells us that the Trappist j Trappist wears Gard. To keep up the faultless cleanliness requires much labor the sick must be cared for the duties of the three kitchens is no Small matter the Kitchen for guests one for the Community and one for the infirmary repair shops of various kinds provide constant employment the pharmacy needs skilful labourers and then there is the work of the Orchards the gardens the vineyards the sawmills the Dairy and the care of the Stock. A Good Deal of the land is let out to tenant Farmers but Brothers not members of the order till the Fields reserved for the use of the Community. The Trappist is not bound to absolute silence his voice is heard in the singing and raised in the confessional but he goes about his work silently. A sign language is employed that that unruly member the Tongue May offend As Little As possible. To speak he must receive permission from the Superior. A it is silence a says the Trappist a that shuts out new ideas worldly topics controversy. It is silence that enables the soul to contemplate with singleness and mortification the infinite perfections of the in their movements the monks Are drilled in the matter of quietness drilled to make no Clatter no rustling. In the Abbey of Gethsemane Are men from various old world countries but no americans. The other Trappist Community in the United states situated at mount Mellera about 12 Miles from Dubuque owns a farm of 6,000 acres most of which is under cultivation. There Are about 50 members of the order Here and they employ an equal j number of helpers. They raise crops of All kinds their farming is most skilful and their Stock among the Best to be found. By no Means Are Tey wholly utilitarian As is attested by the rare Beauty of the monastery grounds i the Early Iowa Trappist were much interested in horticulture and those following have tended what the first i ones planted and to Day Beautiful Trees both foreign and native afford Shade for the silent workers and the enthusiastic guests. The a Pine walk is especially Beautiful an Avenue bordered by Row upon Row of tall Pines. The monastery offers hospitality to the wayfarer no charge is asked for entertainment but the Box in the Vestibule gives silent invitation to drop in an offering. The guest House is immaculately kept and the food As Well As the cleanliness Are of a much higher order than in the average inn. Tramps Are Macle Welcome As Well As the More industrious. When a Trappist Monk Dies and is buried a new grave is immediately dug that All May be reminded life is but for a moment night and Day the his garb of rough vaccination is now compulsory in France during the first year of life and re vaccination during the eleventh and Twenty first years. Paris thieves dressed in workmen a blouses and wearing Caps similar to those used by men employed in the Telephone department of the French Post office Call on subscribers and take their instruments away on the pretext that they Are out of order. The question of making the Public pay an Entrance fee to Paris museums arises again. It is argued that the receipts thus levied will be useful to the administration Des beaux arts As an example the italian and German galleries Are Given. The Vatican makes $8,000 yearly the Nuremberg museum a like amount the Dresden Royal gallery $5,000, and the British National portrait gallery $16,000. The curious looking eyeglasses of m. Ribard seem to be gaining favor in France. The lenses instead of being Oval Are in the form of Long and narrow rectangular strips but they Are otherwise like Ordinary lenses. Their advantages consist in the readiness with which both near and Distant objects May be viewed without removing the spectacles. In Reading or working the worker looks straight ahead through the lenses but in looking off he raises or Lowers his eyes seeing Over or under the glasses. Epitaphs of in the cemetery failure. He lacked tact. Worry killed him. He was too sensitive. He say he did not find his place. A Little Success paralysed him. He did not care How he looked. He did not guard his weak Point. He was too proud to take advice. He did not fall in love with his work. He got into a rut and get out. He did not learn to do things to a finish. He loved ease he did no to like to struggle. He was the victim of the last Man s advice. He was loaded Down with useless baggage. He tried to pick the Flowers out of his occupation. He could not transmute his knowledge into Power.

Berryer and the late Prince Consort. But no picture has impressed me More than that of Pope Leo Xiii. I always think of him As one of those figures which must have been often seen in the Days when saints walked the the following incident furnishes one of the reasons Why the men in the employ of Clarence h.
