Death of Father Dominic.

Latrobe Clipper. -- One of the saddest events recorded in the annals of St. Vincent's Monastery is that which took place on Saturday at 7:30 o'clock, when Rev. Father Dominic surrendered the short lease of mortal life to its originl Giver. The death of Father Dominic brings a pall of sorrow to the whole community at St. Vincent's and entails a great loss upon the institution, because he can never be fully replaced. Being an accomplished scholar, an able teacher, and a man of kind and amiable disposition, during the past twenty years, with an occasional intermission, he occupied the professional chair as teacher of the classic and commercial courses. While engaged in this important and responsible posion of training the youthful mind and heart to integrity and fidelity to God and man, Father Dominic won the love and respect of all under his charge. He has also a large circle of friends throughout the various States who will grieve at his demise. Father Dominic's death is the result of blood poisoning from a rusty nail which penetrated the ball of his right foot some two years ago. He was in the forty-second year of his age.

The funeral took place yesterdat at the Monastery, at 2 o'clock.
