around the archiepiscopal resi

pains with his religious educa

think of barking during religious
service than he would of trying to
pick a quarrel with the sculptured
hound on the lawn. During reli

Prizes for Servants.
In celebration of the empcitu' of
Austria's birthday a short time
ago 20 purses , each contain
ing the equivalent of $75
were offered for competition
among domestic servants who
could prove long and satisfactory
service in respectable situations.
The qualifications of the winners
showed some truly remarkable
periods of service. One of the win
ners a valet had been in the
service of one man for 4(5years. ( A
maid servant of nearly SO years of
age had served about IIJ ) years in
an orphanage , where she was stil
in active employment when she re
ceived the award. Another worn
an , aged 74 years , had entered the
serviceofafamilyas scullery inaie
and was still with the sam'e fam
ily , after 43 years' service. All of
the winners had been in their sit
nations more than HO years.
