Ossining, N. Y., where he is preparing for work on the Chinese Missions.
Dr. R. Carney, '04, was appointed attending physician of the new Scott
County Tuberculosis Hospital in the course of the year, a fact which shows the
extraordinary confidence that the medical profession and the Scott County
Board of Supervisors have in the Doctor's efficiency.
Patrick Murphy, '89, a wealthy farmer and stockman of Wapello, paid a
visit to his Alma Mater in April. He is in partnership with his brother Dennis, a commercial graduate of '89.

Father Martin Loftus, who entered the College as a student in 1891, and
ater became a member of the faculty from 1900 to 1902, was called to his
eternal reward last December. Father Loftus was a zealous priest and a faithful friend of S. A. C. His untimely death brought sadness to the College.
Mr. Edward Henneberry in his "Reminiscences" points out the fact that the
one great purpose of the College is to build up men of character. That the College has not failed in his case may be seen from the following: Since finishing
his College career, Edward has been employed in building up the meat packing
industry in Oklahoma. The Henneberry Packing Co. has a large plant at Guthrie, Okla. On July 29th this plant was completely destroyed by fire, with great
loss to the firm, of which Ed. was the principal owner. In stating his loss in a
letter to a friend, Ed's only comment is that he is in the best of health and has
gained thirty pounds.
