We are directed by tho Most Rev.
Archbishop to republish and call
special attention to what the Fathers
of th A lo-tfl Pl?harv Council cf Balti?
more, now solemnly approved by the
Holy See, officially declare in their
Pastornl Latter in reference to these
dances, which, under tho guise of
fashionable amusements, are so much
fraught with danger to sound morals
nnd to that delicacy which springs
simultaneously from Christianity,
and is intimately connected with true
Christian faith and sentiment. The
Pastoral Letter was signed by all our
bishops, and it is, therefore, the of?
ficial declaration of tho church in the
United States. Our bishops issue
tho following warning on the snbjeot:
"lu this connection we consider it to
be our duty to warn our people
against those amusements which mny
easily become to them an occasion of
sin, and especially against those fa?
shionable dances, which, as at pre?

feeling of delicacy and propriety,
and fraught with the greatest danger
to morals. "

women went with poor teeth, and all
the young ones with yellow ones,
came to the doctor, had the unsight?

for the job. The next day the doc?

heard from since. There is weeping

A little boy in Lowell was asked
how many mills make a cent. "Ten,

"Please, sir, ten mills don't make a
