The vision lasted from two o'clock
until c!t iliirtv in the morning. So
impressed were tho sisters with the
sight that they determined to call
tlipir mother. Mrs. Lavcry was nwc-
stricken when she beheld the appari

On tho widow's entrance, she looked

Thomas XfcOinnis, a son-in-law,
was skepticul nnd strode toward the
figure, to the dismay of those pres

placed his hand through it nnd
pounded the wall nt its back, but the
image stil remained. Then he rushed
across tho room and lifted tho cur

shut doors to see if some shadow was
not reflected on the wall at the foot

"The image appeared as distinct
and lifelike as thnt of a human being.
It held me entranced. When I turned
my head I saw, not ten steps nwny,
the figuro of the Messed Virgin
standing at the foot of the bed on
which my father had lain for so
many weeks befoie he died. Xly first

sisters who had nursed him had re
