St Joseph’s Day procession

MINTARO, March 25.
On Wednesday the Sisters of St. Joseph who have charge of the Roman Catholic School here determined to celebrate St. Joseph’s Day by a procession of their scholars and a picnic, but owing to inclement weather the affair had to be postponed till Thursday. In consequence, however, of the postponement and the gloomy weather then the attendance was not nearly so great as it would have been had Wednesday been fine. Seventy children marched through Mintaro, preceded by a beautiful scarlet silk banner with a picture of St. Joseph and an inscription, and a blue silk one with a picture of the virgin. The girls were prettily dressed in white frocks, blue sashes, and white veils. Judging by the number of people present the efforts of the Sisters to do good seem to be appreciated.
