RUIN IN SCANDAL
Father Ignatius, at the Sacred
Heart Church, Criticises Evil
Tendencies of Time.
YOUTH ON STREET CORNER;
Corruit in Himself, He Is Ever Striv.
ing to Bring Others Down to
His Own Level.
Large crowds are attending the
"mission at Sacred Heart church. The
sermon last night was delivered by
Father Ignatius. In plain yet for
cible "language he depicted the evil
wrought "by scandal-givers. He show
8d how scandal does an injury to
God, to souls, and to the scandal
He appealed to his audience to bear
him out in his statement that today,
in this our boasted age of progress,
the sin of scandal is only too com
mon In all walks of society. Men
and women seem to vie with each
other In ruining innocent souls. They
do the work of the devils in hell, and !
become in verj deed the apostle of
tne prince of darkness. Young men
pride themselves on their manhood,
when they can point to their evil
companions, the many whom they
have brought to ruin by their scan
Striving; tor Victim.
"Look at the young man of today,"
said the speaker, "and you can see
depicted on his countenance the vice
he is ever striving to Instill in
others. Standing on the street cor
ner he brings the blush of shame to
the cheek of Innocent girls. Corrupt
himself, he is ever striviHg to bring
others down to his own level."
The speaker condemned especially
the scandalous conduct of many par
ents, who, instead of fitting their
children for heaven, are driving them
fheadlong into hell. Parents are
Abound to Instruct their children by
"word and example, but mans of them
fare altogether incompetent for this
fwork, simply because they them
selves are so indifferent to religious
Many other modern scandals were
spoken of and those who listened to
the speaker were convinced that there
are more ways man one to ruin souis
and render void the blood of Jesus

Frequently one saw people going and

difficulty in getting a sufficient num

whole families spent days without
food. Many quarters were without
water and gas and the electric plants
are only just besinnins to furnish the
