tlmes and after the custom was adopted the
prxests dld not wear them when they traveled
It appears to me that Father Murphy has
done much vsork m the hne of charlty H
has donated many of his books to our own
school llbrary He has also glven us many
beautlful plctures Father Murphy has added
many good books to the Aquxnas Hlgh School
and to the School of Nursing of La Crosse
One of the storles Father Murphy told us
was about the seal that was sent from Canada
to h1m as a glft A llttle boy passed the case
the seal was ln and stood there crvmg H1s
mother sald Tommy what IS the matter?
Tommy rephed I want to take the teddy
bear home He put the seal ln the Aqulnas
Parish School for thc Slsters and chzldren to
see The slsters thought thls a very fine seal so
they took lt oyer to show the sisters of the
Nursmg School Father Murphy XlSllZ6d the
School the next day Sister sald Father I
have somethmg wonderful to show you
She brought out the seal He stammered a
Very truthfully she told h1m The slstels
brought lt over You better take lt back
was h1s only reply
Soon after h1s appomtment to La Crosse
the church bu1 ned Wlth all the work to do
Father Murphy dld not take a Vacatlon even
over the week ends A real vacataon came
twenty three years later He tl aw eled West
A year or so later the 3SS1StdHl1S urged h1m
to take another vacatlon but he only rephed
I w1ll have to walt another twenty three
years One can see that he IS not ln favor of
vacatlons for hlmself
I asked Father Murphy what he thought
of the world cond1t1ons of today He sald I
thlnk they are somewhat barbarous The
Barbarlans fought and a new ClV1llZ2,tlOlI was
formed If the wars contmue as they hate m
Spam we w1ll have a new Chrlstlapnty Com
munlstlc and Soc1al1st1c ldeas are bexng
taught IH schools and colleges That ls why
boys and glrls should attend Cathoh Instl
tutes where tney are prepared to fight
agamst thls Cathollc papers are wrltlnfr ar
tlcles on world cond1t1ons lf people re fl
these they w1ll have the rlght slant of
I was very much lmpressed when Father
Murphy told me that he had never mlssed one
Forty hours Devotlon at St Patr1ck s since
the tlme of hls ordmatlon untll later yeals
He ha oeen prevented from attendlng be-
cause of xllness
Father Murphy IS an excellently s lcce s
ful speaker He has been xnvlted to sp '1 1 at
many banquets He pa sed thls 1e'narl I
would accept all the ll1V1tatlO1IS gn en Ire to
be to zstmaster at banquets I would be a
Aftex I had ootalned all the mformatzon
a v1s1t to the church to see hxs co OLIZIOII of

the ones that are kept on St Joseph s alta IH
our church tHe has glven to St Patr 1Ck s a
large collectlon of rehcs J The smaller ones

Exerythlng IS lmmacula c I got thls 1m pres

If you were to VlS1t Father Murphy I am
sure y ill w ould get the same 1mp1 esslons as I

W8StmlDSter School bu11t behlnd the Ab
bey IS a church school that at one t1me was
Cathol1c Some of the most famous people of
London have gone to th1S school We saw the
school boys 1n their Norfolk Jackets and hlgh
The Changll' of the Guam ds at Buckmg
ham Palace was the next thlnff we saw This
IS a ceremony that should not be mlssed by
any forelgner who v1s1ts England When one
sees th1s ceremony one begins to realize Just
what the DOHIIHIOD of England stands for
and what holds It together The people of
England love pomp and ceremony and they
As we traveled about the c1ty of London
we saw Buckmgham Palace and St James
Palace the present home of the new king of
England and we pa1d a v1s1t to the Tower of
London In the Tower of London I felt as if
the walls of the building were closing ln
around me All those horrible years of perse
cutlon seemed to come marching back and in
my lmaglnatlon I saw the cells of the tower
filled with many people who were condemned
to death by the many klllgS Here it was that
Walter Raleigh were beheaded It IS in the
Tower that the crovsn Jewels are on dlsplay
The crown has a dlamond so large th t the
klng cannot wear xt for any length of tlme
In going from modern London 1 into wh t
looked llke medieval London we passed
through many suburbs and w1nd1ng passages
which finally brought us into old London
It seems very much as lf modem London
had been built in fzont of old London
Old London IS much the same as it was years
ago In one of the old sections of Lo ndon they
still have an old town cr1er who dre ses 1n lns
ancient clothes and goes up and down the
streets calling the hour and all IS well
In splte of the fact that England IS P10
testant it he1 ever one goes one can see Sl ns
of its folmer Catholicism One evidence lS
the many crosses that may be seen even,
The country slde of England 1s much the
same as the Wlsconsxn country slde exceut
that the grass and trees are a much rxcn r
green We passed many beautiful estates ore
of whlch had a flagstone walk Frgush
Country houses are bu1lt close to the road
wlth SDRCIOUS gal dens Ill the back Beautiful
roses are found almost anywhere
VVe vlslted the very beautiful estate of
the House of Warwlck It was bullt ln the
twelfth century Each Earl that llved in the
estate changed the arrangement of the house
so now it has a comblnatlon of fifteenth SIX
teenth seventeenth and eighteenth century
f llIllSlllYlg'S Beautiful tapestr1es hang fx om
the walls The estate IS filled vxxth many old
and famous portraits 'lhele IS a beautiful
