      A dispatch from St. Louis, Mo. says:
      "A qiuet wedding was the outcome Saturday of a lengthy journey made several
      days ago by Miss Blanche M. English, of Alexandria. Va., in order to be at the
      bedside of her allianced husband, Eugene P. McKenney. The ceremony was performed by Rev. Father McKenney, of
      Eilicot City, Md., at the rectory of St. Francis Xavier's Church, Grand Avenue, and Lintlell Boulevard, at 11 o'clock. The officiating priest is a brother of the bridegroom. The wedding followed a romance begun in Alexantlria eight years ago, while McKenney was chief clerk of the Southern Railway at that place. It
      was there the young couple plighted their troth. It was not long after this that the road officials assigned McKenney to Washnington, D. C., and finally to the East St. Louis position. The young man applied himself assidiously to his duties, hoping to go to Virginia at an early date to claim his bride, but events
      did not occur as had been hoped and the wedding date was set for the coming fall.
      Several weeks ago McKenney became ill and was sent to a St. Louis hospital.
      His recovery was slow, and Miss English, with the spirit of a true southern woman,
      came to St. Louis to be at the bedside of her affianced husband. From the moment of her arrival McKenney naturally began to Improve. Two days ago the patient was able to leave the hospital, and the wedding was arranged forthwith. As Father McKennney, the groom's brother, was already prisent, it was decided
      that he should officiate at the marriage. The couple left on the Wabash train Saturday noon for Chicago, to spend their honeymoon. McKenney had been granted a leave of absence from his duties and will take an extensive trip to recover his health. The couple will reside in St. Louis. During her sojourn in St. Louis, Miss English, now Mrs. McKenny, stopped with Chief Clerk Burroughs, of the Southern Railway, who resides at 4553 A Cleveland Avenue. Officials of the Southern Railway speak in the highest terms of Mr. McKenney. His bride is a beautiful and cultured Virginia girl.

      «b»The Rev. F. X. McKenny, S. S. L.L D.
      «/b»Seventh President of S. C. C.
      For over twenty five years Father Mc Kenny has been a strong influence in St. Charles' College life. He stood out among his schoolmates, free s poken and earnest, frank, resolute to speak and defend the right, constructive in criticism, original in planning, He stood high i n«i» «/i»his clas ses, skipped the fifth, delivered one of the three commencement speeches, and was graduated, in 1862, second in his class.«tab»After his course of philosophy at St. Mary's, Baltimore, h e taught at the college, 1884-1885, and then proceeded to Paris for his theology. «tab»During his four years of r esidence here, mid high religious animosities, he displayed his moral courage no less in combating the anti-republicans than the anti-clericals whom he encountered both at s chool and on the public highways. «tab»In I 888, he was ordained and he spent a year in the Solitude at Issy before his return to the United States.
      Once more teaching, he sustained and increased the early r eputation he had won as a just disciplinarian and brilliant«tab»teacher, and in 1896 he succeeded the veteran Father Vuibert in the con- duct of the graduating class in English, Latin and History. Here he brought his wide reading, varied erudition, broad and detailed philosophy of history, his cultured, exquisite taste in literature and the arts, and, above all, his genial personality to the final development and rounding out of the intellectual life of the students. Those who were fortunate enough to sit as disciples before him recall the perfect order of his class, his calm poise in listening to recitations, his searching queries when translation faltered, the flashes of wit that escaped him, the apt word and graceful turn he gave to a crude rendition. ln the complications of an historical problem or the details of a battle scene he was lucidity itself.«tab»History had for him a marvelous fascination, some share of which he infused into many of his pupils.«tab»His lectures in the development of The Art of Oratory were to the point, copious, stimulating.
      In recreation it was a treat to be with him to hear his views on current topics, or to listen again to the matters of class, or to catch the sparkle of his characterations of men and affairs. His calm judgment in moments of perplexity, his sympathetic insight into the ruffled soul of a penitent, his kindliness to the backward and bashful, his words of cheer to the plodding, are treasured memories time will not efface.
      Students and alumni alike applauded the choice of Fr. Mckenny as President of the College, Sept. 1, 1905, when ill health obliged the zealous Fr. Schrantz to resign the headship of the house. In this wider field of activity, Fr. McKenny made his influence felt as a careful administrator entrusted with a responsible work. His relations with his associates were just and cordial, with the students paternally strict. Twice a week at the spiritual reading he gave his conferences, always thoughtful, earnest, holding up the ideal, and stimulating the noblest aspirations of his auditors. He was a man of faith to whom the supernatural was a close reality. He was careful to safeguard the religious atmosphere and life of the house. Zealous, too, for intellectual culture, he undertook a thorough revision of the curriculum of studies, fostered happy rivalry in classes by periodic reading in the study hall of the best compositions, by enlisting the services of the professors to lecture, and by summoning from without priests and teachers of experience to address the students. Afitting commendation of his academic endeavors was the high degree of L.L.D. which Villanova College conferred on him in 1910.
      Within the space of a very few years it devolved on Fr. McKenny to recruit almost anew a Faculty to replace the aged teachers whom God was calling to Himself after thirty, forty, fifty years of service, spent, hidden with Christ in God, in the education of priests.
      It was his sad lot also to see not alone the inevitable closing of the long careers of his colaborers but the complete destruction of the stately edifice of St. Charles' College. He had, immediately upon accession to office, caused the erection of a new wing to serve as recreation auditorium and basement lavatories, and had underway the placing of new windows in the chapel, when suddenly, Mar. 16, 1911, fire reduced the aged pile to ashes.
      Indefatigable was Fr. McKenny in working for the reconstruction of his destroyed college. Days and weeks were consumed with the problem of temporary housing and permanent location and building.
      All the alumni have heard of the pioneer work of the early months at Catonsville; and all visitors were impressed by the substantial, well situated, modernly equipped college, which with the aid of Alumni and other friends, Fr. McKenny was instrumental in erecting.
      But the strain was too much even for his energies and strength. On his way home for a short rest he was suddenly brought near death by an attack of heart trouble. A week or so later he resigned his office of president and trustee of the college. An entire year passed before his strength was sufficient to warrant his return to the college. Here he moved round, reminded of his erstwhile active life, exhibiting a splendid heroism in his affliction. It was his now to counsel; not to do. Yet the spirit of teaching stirred within. Last year he resumed his classes in English, French and history. In February of this year he was obliged to relinquish them and go to the hospital. He declined gradually but steadily, though he moved about in his wheelchair, and was actually at the college for an hour or so on Holy Saturday.
      A few days later he went to Providence Hospital, Washington.
      On May 15 word came that Fr. McKenny was sinking and would be anointed on the morrow. He lingered till May 22, when at half past ten of the morning, he breathed his last. Present at his bedside were his sisters, Dr. Pace of the University, Fr. M. Riordan and three of his
      · Sulpician confreres.

      Resolutions

      WHEREAS it has pleased Divine Providence to call to Him- self the Rev. F. X. McKenny, S.S., late President of Saint Charles' College: and

      WHEREAS by his death the College has lost a distinguished member of its Faculty, and we a devoted teacher, guide and friend;
      be it
      RESO LVED that we bow in humble resignation to God's inscrutable decrees; that we extend our heartfelt sympathy to the College and to Father McKenny's parents and sisters in their be- reavement; that these resolutions be included in the minutes o f this class-reunion; and that a copy of them be sent to the College and to Father McKenny's afllicted family; and finally, that a copy be preserved in the f iles of the class records.

      Francis X. McKenny was born in Washington, D.C., on May 17, 1860. He entered St. Charles College on September 11, 1877, and graduated in 1882. After graduation he studied Philosophy at St. Mary's Seminary, Baltimore; he then returned to St. Charles to teach for the year 1884-1885. For his Theoology he went to Paris; was ordained on December 22, 1888 by the Archbishop of Paris, Cardinal Richard; and then entered the Solitude at Issy. In 1889 he returned to the United States.
      Father McKenny's association with St. Charles College as a faculty member.resumed in 1890. When Father Vuibert moved in 1896 to St. Patrick's Seminary in San Francisco, Father McKenny succeeded to his classes. Nine years later, in 1905, he succeed Father Schrantz as President of St. Charles.
      His eminent scholarship was rewarded in 1910 by the degree of LLD., conferred on him by Villanova College.
      A year later, fire destroyed St. Charles College at Ellicott City. The strain of its reconstruction in Catonsville was heavy on Father McKenny. Failing health caused him to resign the presidency in 1913. He was able to resume teaching in 1916; but in February, 1917, he again became seriously ill. He died at Providence Hospital in Washington on May 22, 1917.

Efforts of local firemen, assisted by the department from Ellicott City, to gain control of the flames proved unavailing. Within four hours the entire building was wrecked, only portions of the heaviest walls remaining.
      The loss to the Catholic diocese cannot be estimated in actual money, as priceless paintings and manuscripts, many in the original parchments, were destroyed, and a library of more than 16,000 volumes also was burned.
      More than 200 students, as well as the faculty and 27 Sisters of Providence, were made temporarily homeless. No one was injured.
      The students managed to save their personal belongings and the Sisters saved some of theirs as well, but the faculty lost practically everything that it owned.
      How the fire started is unknown, although it is believed that an overheated furnace must have caused the conflagration. Rev. Dr. F. X. McKenny, president of the college, was the first to discover the flames. He was standing in front of the chapel when he smelled smoke. He went toward the furnace room and opened a ventilator, but did not discover anything suspicious. Still smelling smoke, he walked to the sacristy, as he thought there might be a small fire in one of the flues. He shut off a damper and opened a door. The flames and smoke nearly overpowered him when the door was opened.
      The chapel and the sacristy are in the central portion of the building and Father McKenny issued orders for all the water in the building to be turned on, and all the stand pipes started. It was soon seen, however, that such efforts were useless and Ellicott City was notified by telephone. Even the firemen were unable to do anything and after wetting down a few outlying buildings resturned to the city.
      The fire, which had apparently been smoldering in the basement for an hour or more, gained almost incredible headway as soon as the doors were opened. Fanned by a strong northwest wind, the flames swept through the long buildings in almost miraculous time. Within a half hour a major portion of the college was in flames and before nightfall all the buildings had been consumed, only small portions of the walls remaining erect.
      When the fire was discovered by Father McKenny all of the students were out of the building. Dinner had been served at noon, as is the custom, and it was shortly after 1 o'clock when the flames began the doom of the building. The boys were about 100 yards away watching an exciting game of basketball. Father McKenny and other members of the faculty shouted to them to rush to their rooms and save their personal belongings, as the buildings appeared to be doomed.
      A mad rush to the dormitories was made. These were at each end of the long buildings. In a twinkling dress-suit cases, trunks, bedding and other belongings began to be thrown out of the windows. In 15 minutes the boys had saved everything they owned, unless they forgot something in the rush and hurry, and were safely out of the buildings.
      The Sisters of Providence were nearly as fortunate. Their rooms were at the east end of the building, and they had ample time to save their prized posessions. They were allowed to go to the buildings and get their things, and these were also taken out.

      Faculty Lost All.

      The priests and other members of the faculty, however, had no oportunity to save anything. A few saved some clothing that happened to be in other parts of the buildings, but the faculty's rooms were directly in the centre of the structure and nothing could be done.
      St. Charles' College owed its origin to the zeal of Archbishop Marechal, third Archbishop of Baltimore, and to the generosity of Charles Carroll of Carrollton, one of the signers of the Declaration of Independence. These two philanthropists decided that the exclusive object was to be to train candidates for the priesthood, and the charter obtained from Maryland said that the college was for "the education of pious young men of the Catholic persuasion for the ministry of the Gospel."
      Mr. Carroll conveyed $5,349 and 253 acres from his own estate, slightly more than five miles beyond Ellicott City, as the foundation and home for the college. This tract has always been known as "Mary's Lot," and the cornerstone of the college was laid by Mr. Carroll and blessed by Archbishop Whitfield on July 11, 1831. The first building, which was the first to be consumed in the fire of yesterday, was finished in 1832. From time to time since then other buildings have been erecetd, making all told a complete structure which was 368 feet in length and with "L's" on either end. The west wing, which was so badly burned that not even the walls remained standing, was erected in 1877.
      The college carried insurance to the amount of $250,000.
