NOTRE DAME. lad.. Feb. tl.-A move-
ment ha been started In Philadelphia to
erect a monument on tha battlefield of Get
tysburg to Rev. WUllam Corby, C. 8. C
who served as a chaplain through tha. en
tire civil war. It ts the Intention of those
most nearly Interested that th monument
shall stand everlastingly as a tribut to
the strong devotion ef the chaplains to
th soldiers during the terrible yeara of
Civil at rife and Incidentally commemorate
on of the moat striking acta of religion
that ever took place on any battlefield
th giving of general absolution to a whole
brigade Just before they entered battle.
Tha Gettysburg Memorial commission
which haa as president General St, Clair
Mulhotland, who was an officer In the
regiment of which Father Corby waa chap
tain, has the erection of the statu In
charge and ts pushing ths project vigor
ously. The plan already has the warm
endorsement of Cardinal Gibbons, Arch
bishop Rysn of Philadelphia, Bishop
Bhanahan of Harrfsburg and Bishop
Canevln of Pittsburg, all of wbom were
among the early contributors.
Th modelling of the statue will he en
trusted to Samuel Murray,, a sculptor of
eminence In Philadelphia, who was sculptor
of th Barry statue' tn that city and who
designed and executed the memorial arch
erected by the stats of Pennsylvania to
soldiers of that commonwealth who fall at
Gettysburg. The statue of Father Corby
will be of bronse, eight feet high, and will
represent him giving absolution. The priest
wilt be shown wearing the uniform of a
captain of cavalry, which was his rank.
It la the hope of the commlaalon that the
statue will be ready for unveiling on July
10, M6, when the grand memorial arch will
be dedicated. The statue will cost tlO.fOO.
At the beginning of the war Father Corby
was appointed as chaplain 4t the Eighty
eighth New Tork Infantry, one of the regi
ments of the Irish brigade. Previous to his
appointment to tha : ehaplalnacy Father
Corby was serving as a professor In the
University of Notre Dame, then struggling
for aa existence In, the weeds of Indiana.
When war was dec ft red Rev. Edward
Sorln. C. 8. C. founder of Notre Dame,
called his young priests about him and
said there would be need of chaplains for
tha soldiers. Although he could 111 spare
from the duties hi the new college any of
his young professors, he believed It waa a
patriotic obligation,- to re ska sacrifices tn
orJer that Catholic soldiers might hsve the
benefits of the prlesti tn fighting for the
union. Accordingly. tia. chose six of th
priests and sent themay to the front.
Father Corby was one 'Of these six who
left Notre Dame. - it
His career during the war haa been mod

with fine effect during the entire struggle

place aa professor, H was twlcs president
of the university, and. at the time of his
death, in XiSl, he was provincial of his order
in America. The battle flag of the Irish

MANY INDUSTRIAL SCHOOLS. '
Masaackaaetta Reparta Prgra Along;
Thre Dtatlaet Llaes.
In th third annual report of tha Ma see
chuaetta commlsetoa on Industrial educa
tion progress along thre distinct 1 Lines la
noted day Industrial schools, evening la
duetrval eolwwila id agricultural educa
tion. Day Industrial schools have beea es
tablished in two cities and authorised In
five more, while vning schools ara In
operation tn eleven cities. The report
shows Increasing Internal la agricultural
--ducatioo. Rural industrial schools of two
types hsve been provided for: First. wHere
two or more cities or town units ss a
district for the malntenanc of an indus
trial school, each paying Its proportionate
shar of ths expenses: second, where a
town or city establishes an industrial
school at a center easy of access to neigh
boring towns and receive such pupil
from the latter as may deelr to attend
thla erhool under the provision of the law
of 190. which authorises such attendance.
Such Is th school established at Mon
tagu where pupils from five neighboring
towns are tn attendance.
Tha com mission flnda that a careful su
pervision of the industrial schools must be
carried on In order to effect th progres
sive Improvement of the schools, which ts
necessary for their full development.
Special attention la being given by the
commission to the problem of Industrial
education for girts. It being In many ways
more difficult and complicated than that,
of the Industrial training of boy This
difficulty is partly because of the
double aim tn the education for girls, who
need to be prepared for home life as well
ss for an occupation which will provide
self support The commission feels that
domestic efficiency Is of Importance to all
women, and training for housekeeping and
home management should be an essential
part of the education af all girts, but on
the other hand, a large majority of girts
are obliged to earn their living for a time
tn Industry, aad th occupations that are
open to yonng, totally untrained girls are
for th most part 111 paid, without educa
tional value, and not a stepping stone to
better positions. Th commission favors
Independent day schools furnishing girls
with definite special trade Instruction; part
tlma schools for girls who are obliged to
become wage earners at an early age, and
evening classes whose general aim shall be
to Increase Industrial efficiency and give
greater opportunity to women whose daily
occupations do not lead to more advanced
posltlonsx-w1thout additional training.

taioed beat aod with th aid of apparatus and sp

A little book of these endorsement has been compiled by Dr. R. V. Pierce,

it will be found that ths ingredient composing th "Golden Mediosl Discov
