1900 - TRAPPISTS ARE TO MOVE. Monastery in Nova Scotia to Be Removed to Cumberland in Rhode Island.

St. John, N. B., April 28. - The trappist monastery at Tracadie, N. S., is soon to be removed to a far near Cumberland, R. I., and the farm at Tracadie abandoned. It was established in 1814. It was founded by members after the house in France was broken up by the Emperor, Napoleon. There are twenty-five monks at Tracadie. The discipline is rigorous. Bread and water constitutes their diet, eleven hours a day are spent in prayer, and the members are prohibited from speaking to one another.
