129 OBSERVAT I ONS IN THE ORIENT To reach the preparatory school we had to cross the railroad track, and just beyond this point the Bishop pointed out a large tract of land covering many acres, for which he paid twenty dollars a few years ago and which has already advanced considerably in value. He has planed trees, for wood is a scarce commodity here, and another generation will benefit by this precious investment of a few dollars. The boys of the school and their professors — three priests, a Hollander and two Chinese — were all glad to welcome the Bishop home from his trip to Tientsin and they were pleased to see a priest from America. They are a bright-looking set of young aspirants and number a hundred and twelve. As we were leaving the "little seminary" we saw the village church, which a heavy rain had reduced to ruins, and we looked into the house of a catechist, a rather well-to-do man whose home gave a fair idea of the kind of place where a missionary bishop or priest may find shelter and say Mass when on a tour. It was not dirt-proof. The report of spiritual fruit in this vicariate is unusually good, the more so as Bishop de Vienne holds out no advantages, such, for example, as sustenance for catechumens during their period of training. His vicariate contains about 65,000 Christians. Last year there were baptized : 2,220 children of Christians 946 adults 50 adults at the point of death 20,072 pagan infants at the point of death Communions of devotion during the year were 376,082.
