The Indian Advocatk.
TN THE first number of the Indtan Advocate for
1 1900 an article was devoted to Our Nascent Alumnate.
Since January the number of our alumni has increased
from six to nine. The young candidates wear a special
dress a black habit with a short scapular in token of their
consecration to God and of their desire to become one day
religious in the Benedictine Or-
der should God call them to
that state. We take pleasure in
presenting our subscribers with
the picture of one of the first al-
umni. They wear a special cos-
tume only on Sundays and Holy-
days and when assisting at the
public religious services; they
attend class and walk about on
ordinary days in civilian attire.
It is understood that this habit
which they receive a few days
after their admission into the Alumnate implies no other
Engagement but the one just stated and is in no sense a
monastic or clerical dress not any more than the cassock
black red or purple of the sanctuary boy.
Could a mjin be secure
That his life would endure
As of old for a thousand years!
' What things he might know!
What deeds he might do!
And all without hurry or care!
Here’s what’s next.
