Brother Aidan's Extracts


"Brother Constantine, once so well-known and popular among students and neighbors as the director of the boot and shoe establishment here, is again at his post after an absence of several weeks caused by illness. Previous to his taking charge of the establishment a second time, he had been for four years director of a school in Hamilton, Ohio. Since his return he has been actively engaged in completing arrangements and facilities to meet the increased demand for work . . . .1st class work at that -- which is made him from all quarters. Eighteen hands are busily employed on good material, selected by the director himself and cut by him. We can attest personally to the durability of the work turned out by the boot and shoe establishment here, as we never could repeat an order inside of a year no matter how much traveling we had to do." SCHOLASTIC, October 9, 1875
