"We are going to be terribly crowded in this little space," I lamented, with a glance at the building chaos which was already overflowing our narrow limits. Barrett slapped me on the back. "There was one time when your Uncle Bob had the right hunch," he bragged exultantly.

He told the same story of Anthony and the Egyptian hermits with similar results. The most renowned ecclesiastic of the Gallican church, whose name is most intimately associated with the spread of monasticism in Western Europe, before the days of Benedict, was Saint Martin of Tours.

A most curious colloquy between the abbot and the devils on this subject may be found in Osberne's "Life of Dunstan." xvii The Benedictine Rule. St. Benedict, the founder of the great Benedictine Order, was born in the neighbourhood of Nursia, a city of Italy, about A.D. 480.

For thy so great love, thy faith and loyalty, fain would I thank thee yet words be so poor, and I O, Benedict " "Lord," said Benedict, "our camp lieth scarce three miles westward, come, I pray thee " "Nay, first come ye, friend, and look upon a dead witch that was indeed a noble woman."
