LOUISVILLE, KY ...SATURDAY, APRIL 8, 1H16.
With very evident signs tho
Lenten season has given to us a
wider thought of the sufferings all
over tho earth. Not only tho very
rich, but those of moderate wealth
and those of no wealth at all are
working to alleviate distress and
pain. There has been inaugurated
a great and wonderful plan in
greater cities for tho better brjnglng
up and guidance of our children, es
pecially for boys who under too
abusive control In many places
develop Into criminals. Those of
great wealth are aiding in providing
work for the unemployed, so that a
man's self-respect may bo saved and
tho habits of the professional tramp
bo gradually changed into the more
capable man of tho farms. In with
these efforts much charity has been
given so unobtrusively that it is
difficult to make a reckoning of It.
Added to our own poor we have not
neglected those who aro homeless
and sick from tho ravages of tho
war; nearly every race Included In
tho actual territory at war has had
a representative In the United States
seeking aid, and they have not re
turned with empty hands. It can be
said that such a Lent for prayer and
giving and earnest faith has been
but rarely witnessed.
his facts; yot facts aro facts wher
ever found, and denial does not
destroy them. It Is all too true that
a vast number of Protestant, and
not a few Baptist, churches are
satellites of Home In thlsr silly busi
ness. It is a fact, as the Archbishop
suggests, that every church that
keeps Lent, and we may add Easter,
which is the climax of Lent, are
headed for the Eternal City Rome.
The man Is not born of woman that
can justify Lent and Eactcr In the
light of Now Testamont teaching.
Easter originated as a heathen fes-H
tlval, was grafted on Christianity by
Rome, andpeddled but In quantities
to suit the purchasers and perform
ers. Oh that our people especially
could see that every form of Easter
observance is a compliment and a
concession to Romanism, and Is
rightly so considered by all its in
telligent adherents. It Is by such
spectacular performances that
Romanism has gained a multitude
of advocates, and by them yet hopes
to win some of Its collateral kin.
That roal progress Is being made In
this regard will hardly bo denied by
anyone at all acquainted with the
ecclesiastical situation. We are fully
conscious of the fact that many who
aro committed to this Easter tom
foolery aro actuated by tho best of
motives and do not know from
whence it same, or whither It Is go
ing. To Protestants generally, and
Baptists particularly, wo would say,
HOSPITALITY MAY IT BE GENUINE.
"To protect girls from moral
dangers," Is the primary object of
tho Girls' Protective League which
quietly camojnto existence in New
York City almost a year ago, and
just as quietly has become perfected
Into an organization of twenty-eight
branches with a membership of
nlmost 2,500 girls. It was an out
growth of tho New York Probation
and Protective Association and first
was suggested by Miss Maude E.
Miner. Five thousand inquisitive
eyes are being "trained to watch for
the person( b&$ho man or woman,
who harbors designs upon tho moral
welfare of the working girls of New
York City. These girls aro not
detectives they do not go about
eternally on the watch for the evil
doer jjut they are trained through
the work done for them by the Girls'
Protective League to know when
conditions are dangerous to the
morals of girls In a factory, at a
dance hall, In a motion plcturo thea
ter, In a furnished room house, or
on a recreation pier. Such condi
tions aro reported to the officers of
tho league, who take tho matter up
with the proper civic organization or
official, or make an investigation
themselves, and steps aro taken to
better the conditions or to keep un
protected girls away from such
places. This league has saved many
young women. It has a field in all
our cities and should be spread ev
erywhere by women who aro profess
ing Interest In tho welfare of their
And now it is Scotland which is
protesting against tho tactics of John
Bull, ns is shown by the following
extracts from 'he "Thistle," pub
lished at Edinburgh: "We deem It
our duty to draw tho attention of
the Scottish people throughout tho
world, so far as our humble means
permit, to tho degradation which
9ur English fellow-citizens con
stantly lnlllct on us by their per
sistent efforts to Anglicize our coun

being 'Englishmen' and not as
'Scotsmen.' This 1b a degradation of
our position in tho, empire which

Lloyd-George to account for con
demning Prussia in Its treatment of
Belgium and calls his attention to
tho breaking of tho treaty made be
tween England und Scotland.

PREPARING .MAY FESTIVAL.
The editor of tho Western Re

lishes extracts from the Lenten
regulations as published in the
Catholic Record, and sneeringly
refers to tho different dispensations.
In a crudo attempt at humor he
mentions the different foods allowed
and Intimates that on Sunday Cath
olics may dissipate as -that Is not a
day of Lent. As an evldenco that
the humor of tho Baptist gentleman
Is forced is shown in another article,
when he drops his humorous style
and shows that tho more and more
generous observance of Lent Is
galling to his narrow views, his pro
test being headed "The Greater the
