on the main altar, brightly hinling in the glow
of hundreds of lights, stood the stotuc of the
Illessed Virgin, as she appeared to IBernndette.
in the grotto of Mlasnhielle, near Lourdes. All
heartily joined in that great popular devotion,
the Rosary, which always appeals so touchingly
to the hearts of Mary's faithful Iservants,
specillly when recited in the sweet, rhythmical
Spanish style. The litany of Loretto was
chanted, a sermono on the Imnmac.ilate Conception
followed aind the devotion closed with the Bene-
diction of the hipt Blessed Sacrament.
After the services, thel people were regaled
in the churchl-yard with fireworks and miIuic

Ioveira, to rrcvive their culminmionti on tihe
festival day itself in still righterr splemldour bIlth
soithini and without the church. There was
High Mass in the morning, At which about two
hundied persoia received lHoly Conimmnmiion.
In the afternoon there wits a grand prucessioni
through the streets of the town, the stores being
clIsed, followed by Vespers, Sermon, Te Deutin
and Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament.
Some one may wonder how Orange Walk
cam afford to go to such an expense as is entailed
hy this nine or rather ten daiys festival. Tlhe
answer is very plaiii. There is no cost what-
ever to the church, The people unite in
Working together whilst different families bear
the expenses of the separate nights. This year
the generouIs Ienefactors were : Hr. H. Kevlin-
h esrs. Beytlia, Pereira and Alpuche-Mr. A.
A)uso-Mscrs. E. Abila and J. Hayluck-
eleMrs. A. lBesu and M. Dominguez-Mr. R.
Gonzalei-Mr. D. Herrera-Mesars. H. 1.
Marchand, A. Medina and B. Dominguez-
Ilesra. T. Escalante and L. Ayuso.
All the people of Orange Walk extend their
hearty thanks to these gentlemen and their
families. May our Blessed and Immauculnte
Mother reward them and may she ever reign
over this coliimunity as our Beloved Queen.

Tll Czat's ,REDUKE.

The Czar of Russia recently took a strange
way to rebuke some of his officers. Among
Ihe higher grades in the Russian army there is
a great deal of extravagance; and a certain
.oing officer, who had had the boldness to ride
in a slreet-car instead of a carriage, was notified
hiy lis brother officers that they required him to
hland in lis resignation. The Czar heard of
this, and saw the tyranny and injustice of it;
's lie himself took a street-car, rode down to the
barracks, land startled the officers there by
:.'king them if they desired him also to resign.
It is said that the rebuke had the desired effect.
The Czar is still a young ruler, but it seems
lie has already learned that it is not the officers
who wear most gold lace on their uniforms anid
have the greatest number of trunks in their
imjiediiwturti that make the best fighters. Per-
hap, hlie has been reading some sarcastic remarks
haout one of our gallant generals in the
American papers.-Ibid.

A Berlin inventor, Louis Hoffmlann, has suc-
ccedeid, according to the Volk.zeitung of Cologne,
in perfecting a Milk-automaton" which will
prove most bcenefcial in those schools where the
pupils are accustomed, during the time of
recess, to take a glass of milk for refreshment.
Th'Ie Ilstrumenn ts is quit complicated, aa it not
i"ly must receive the "penny in the slot" and
lUiili-h the desired article, but must take good
care to prevent the milk froin souring antd setting,
which it does by a process of stirring and cool-
il1g. Besides the drilkintg vessels must be clean-
ed, and when the automaton has "sold out,"
this must he indicated to the thirsty visitor, and
the receptacle for the penny" must be closed
uP. All this has been successfully accomplish-
" h"y the machine lately xhibited at a meeting
ol tih dairymen of Germany in Hamburg.
