Bishop J. L. Spalding has issued
the customary circular to the priests
of the Peoria diocese relative to . the
observance of the lenten season,
which begins eb. 20. in the same
connection it is urged that pastors
during the next six months arrange
for a mission or the devotions of the
4U hours in order to comply more
fully with the directions of Pope Leo
in relation to the jubilee. Catholics
are especially urged also to attend the
services Wednesdays and Fridays,
which are outlined to include similar
devotions and meditations to those
conducted on these days during lenten
seasons of the past. The regulations
were read in most of the Catholic
churches of the diocese yesterday
1. Ash Wednesday falls on the 20th
aay or February.
2. All the days of lent are fast days
except the bunaays.
3. All persons who have completed
their 21st year, unless legitimately
despensed, are obliged to keep the
fast. Custom allows a cup of coffee.
tea or chocolate, with a small piece of
bread to be taken in the morning. . In
the evening a collation not exceeding
the fourth part of an ordinary meal is
. Meat Four Days.
4. By dispensation, the use of
ilesh meat is allowed at the principal
meals on Mondays, Tuesday, Thurs
days and Saturdays, except the Satur
day in holy week.
5. The use of fish and flash meat is
not allowed at the same
6. All under 21 years of age, those
who are engaged in hard work, the
sick and convalescent and persons who
cannot fast without serious injury to
health, are exempt from the fast.
rersons excused from fasting on ac
count of tender age, hard labor or
sickness, are not restricted to use of
flesh meat at only one meal on the day
on which it is allowed. Those who
entertain any reasonable doubt about
tneir obligation to fast or abstain
ought to apply to their pastors for ad
vice or dispensation.

Jn virtue of special faculties given
in a letter of the sacred congregation
of propaganda to the ordinaries of the
United Mates on the 15th day of
March, 1895, for 10 years, I hereby
grant to all laborers in this diocese
ermission to eat meat at one meal on
ays of abstinence.
From this permission, ' however.

Ash Wednesday, Wednesday, Friday
and Saturday of holy week and the
vigil of Christmas. It should also be
remarked that on those days on which
the use of meat is thus allowed fish
and flesh Cannot be eaten at the same
meal, - . ,
' This permission, to eat on certain
days of abstinence extends not only
to the laborers themselves, but also
to their family, so that every mem
ber of their family participates to the
privilege of the indult.
Those who make use of this dis
pensation 'are earnestly exhorted to
perform some other work of penance
on those, days.
The best mortification for lent is
to abstain from the use of - intoxicat
ing drinks in honor of the sacred
thirst and agony of our Lord on the
cross. Because drunkenness 'is such
a withering scourge and counts its
victims by many thousand on its ex
tirpation depends the blessings of
health, the happiness of homes and
the salvation of manv souls.

Hence the choicest self-denial for
the holy season to make in your
heart to carry out in practice the fol
lowing promises: v
l. To abstain from all intoxicat
ing drinks during lent.
z. To keep out of the saloon.
3. To say one oar father and threo
hail Marys every day for the sup

BASEBALL MEN ACTIVE
Reorganization of the Rock Island
Baseball association under the incor
poration of 1898 was effected at a
meeting of stockholders Saturday
evening, J. F. Mnnger being chosen
president, Lou G. Eddy secretary,
and T. F. La elle treasurer a trio
of active supporters of the game who
can be relied, upon to do their utmost
to make the local club a winning
proposition, both financially and from
a baseball point of view. Mr. Munger
was also chosen a league director.
It was agreed that the $1,000 capital
stock, which has been subscribed by
10 persons, be collected Feb. 25. In
the meantime $500 is to ba gathered
by general subscription, as past ex-
rerience has proved that at least
1,500 is needed to put a team in the
field. The additional funds can be
easily secured, the officers already
having any number of voluntary
oilers of donations from business men
and others who realize a ball team
cannot be organized on talk.
As soon as a manager is engaged
the employment of players will be be

home in Minnesota that he has signed
as manager of the bhrevesport. La

have preferred to have come here,
but had received advance money from
Shrevesport .before he learned that
Rock Island was to put in a team.
Bobby Warner, who held down second
base with the local club in 1898, is one
of those applying for thi management.

EXCITEMENT IN A CHURCH.
Ignites Girl's Fnr Coat
What might have been a serious
matter was narrowly averted in the
choir loft of St. Joseph's church at
the second service yesterday morn
ing, when the fur coat of Annie Kail,
the daughter of one of the choir mem
bers, was ignited by a candle, near
which she was standing. Several of
the singers rushed to the side cf the
girl and united in an effort to smother
the flames, which they succeeded in
doing with no more serious damage
than a few scorched hands and a
slight interruption to the service.
