The weather is a the me "which has
been worn thieadbare, but the extra
ordinary beautiful, mild weather which
lias been prevailing here in Minnesota
for the past few weeks has put the old
theme in the mouth of every one. Just
think of it the last week in November
and the weather more pleasant than it
was during the last week of May. The
farmers have been blesfeed, and he is a
shiftless, procrastinating fellow who has

St. Peter Claverffe Catholic
Persuant to the announcement in the
APEBAL, a large and very intelligent
audience assembled last Sunday eve
ning in St. Peter Claver's (Catholic)
church to hear Father Shanley's lucid
explanation of the Catholic doctrines
on the subject of indulgences. The
large congregation listened very atten
tively to the Rev. Pastor, who spoke
substantially as follows:,
The civilized world was Catholic until
Jbe sixteenth century. I the begin-
ningofthe sixteenth century, a Cath
olic priest, Martin Luther, rebelled
against the authority of the Catholic
church, and founded a church of his
own. One of the reasons which Luther
gme for leaving the church of Christ
and starting a church of his own was
the Catholic doctrine about indulgences,
which he vilely .misrepresented and
abused.. From that day to the present
non-Catholics bav persisted in mis
understanding what the Catholic church
teaches o-n this as well as on every her
important subject. .Non-Catholics think
that an indulgence is a permission to
commit em. Now wbafc do we Oath
olics mean by an indulgence? An in
dulgence is the remission of the tem
poral punishment due to sin, after the
guilt and eternal punishment have been
forgiven through tike aaerement of pen
ance. An indulgence has nothing to do
with the guilt or with the eternal pun
ishment of sin. I refers only to the
temporal punishment which Godinflicts
on the sinner for every sin committed.
That every sin brings -with, it a temporal
punishment is clear from the plain
teaching of the Ploly Bible. Adam
sinned, and his sin, together with the
eternal punishment thereof was for
given. But the temporal punishment
sickness, death, spiritual weakness
remained, Moses sinned at the waters
of Contradiction, and was forgiven.
But the temporal punishment remained.
He cou'd not enter the Promised Land.
So every sin brings with it a temporal
punishment, which must be undergone
eithei in this world or in Purgatory.
An indulgence is the remission of this
The tme church has power to grant
indulgences-the forgiveness of this
temporal punishment. For priests ha\
pouei to forgi\e sins. Wlose sins ye
shall forgive, they are forgiven.'
(John 20th, T}
verse He who can do
the greater, can do the less. Now it is
greater to forgive sins and the eternal
punishment due to them than to remit
temporal punishment The Savioi gave
to Peter the kejs of the kingdom of
heaven, and said to him' "What-so-ever
thoushalt hind on eaiih, shall be hound
in heaven and what-so-ever thoushalt
loose on earth, shall be loosed in heaven."
(Matthew 16th 19 veise.) These words
give an unlimited power to Petei and
his successors of freeing a person prop
erly disposed from every thing that
may keep ms soul out of hea\en. I
other words the Saviour then and theie
gave Petei and his successors the power
of gianting indulgences.
We cannot gain an indulgence unless
we are free from mortal sin.' There
fore, in asking us to stihe to gain in
dulgences, the church urges us most
powerfully to abandon evil, and to truly
return to God.
At the close of the seivice a society
was formed to aid in evangelical work
among the Coloied people oi the South.
Mi. S. E. Hardy and Mr. N. Gillaid,
together with Rev. Fathei bhanley
pased through the aisles taking names
of the members, and issuing to them
tickets of membership. About seventy
membe rs were oiled.
Society circles have been in afluiry
of excitement since the fact became
public property that Miss Hattie M.
Ball, the charming daughter of SIis. S.
J. Ball was to give up a life of single
blessedness for the sake of the man she
loved, Mr. Frank Beard, of Chicago.
Mr. Beard arrived in the city Tuesday
and the important event took place at
the lesidence of the brides mother No.
228 NorriH street Wednesday evening
at ei^ht o'clock. The very beautiful
ceremony was performed by Rev.
William Gray. The bride was given
away by her brothei Mr. F. Ball
while Miss Zoe Ball and Mr. Wm. Ball
acted as attendants. The brides rare
loveliness was iuither enhanced by a
gown of cream broadcloth entrain,
white brocaded satin petticoat, high
necked basque with angel sleeves and
fastened with white satin bows, Sara
Bernhardt gloves, diamond ear rings
and flowers. The bridesmaid wore
mahogany brown plush, tiimmed with
cream plush, mbies, flowers. The

"Who Stole my Overc at?"
These were the sad words uttered by
Presiding Elder Knight, just as he arose
from his seat in Farv\ell Hall, last
week, on the occasion of the address of
Ex-Pr eS ident Hayes, on "How to le
form criminals." The good Elder had
just bought the coat and as Piesiding
Eldeisare never oveily flush the loss
was no one horse affair. When we left
the hall the pood man was stid asking
the question "Who stole my coat." He
now more than ever is in favor of re
forming the rogues.
A GREAT MAGAZINE.
The Century for 1889.
HE question lias often been
asked, "to what does Th
Century owe its great circu
lation?" The Chtistian Union
once answered tins toy the
statement that "it has been
fairly won, not by adver
tising schemes, but by the excellence which
chai-acterizes it in every department." In
their announcements for the coming year
the publishers state that it has always been
their desire to make The Centuty the one in
dispensable periodical of its class, so that
Whatever other publication might be desira
ble the iamily, The century could not be
neglected by those who wish to keep abreast
of the times in all matters pertaining to
culture. And the unprecedented circula
tion of the magazine would seem to be the
response of the public to tins intention.
With the November number The Century
begins its thirty-seventh
volume. Two great feat
ures of the magazine
wtucb. are to continue
throughout the new vol
ume are already well
known to the pubhc, the
Lincoln history and the
papers on "Siberia and
the Exile System." The
first of these, written by
Messrs Nicolay and Hay,
President Lincoln's pri
vate secretaries, contains
the inside history of the
dark days of the war, as
seen rom the White
THE SIBERIAN PAPERS,
by George Kennan, are attracting the at
tention of the civilized world. The Chi
cago Tribune says that "no other magazine
articles prmted in the English language just
now touch upon a subject which so vitally
interests allthoughtful people in Europe and
America and Asia." As is already known,
copies of The Century entermgRussia have
these articles torn out by the customs officials
on the frontier-.
The Century will publish the most Im
portant art feature that has yet found
place in its pages. It is the
result of four years' work
of Mr. Timothy Cole, the
leading magazine engraver
of the world, in the galleries
of Europe, engraving from
the originals the greatest
pictures by the old masters.
A series of papers on Ire
land, its customs, land
scapes, etc., will appear, and there are to
be illustrated articles on Bible scenes,
treating especially the subjects of the Inter
national Sunday-School Lessons. George
W. Cable will write Strange, True Stories
of Louisiana." There will be novelettes
and short stories by leading writers, occa
sional articles on war subjects (supplement
alto the famous "War Papers" by General
Grant and others, which have been appear*.
Ing in The Century), etc., etc.
The Century costs four dollars a year, and
it is published by The Century Co., of New
Sork, who will send a copy of the full pros,
