The Lt- i ten Season and Its Kelig

The Leiten season was ushered in this
morning, today being Ash Wednesday in
the Mats! iastical calendar. This season
of forty dys is observed by many chris
tian deno ninations as a time to rest from
frivolous amusements, and take adv in
tajje of fa opportunity to repair their
spiritual forces by praver and contrition,
and salutury tasting and abstinence. Tbe
manner of observance is. however, jui'e
different m ni the denominations, some
enforcing more rigid mles than others.
The Cibtbolic church demands of its
people to fast during this season, under
pain of mortal sin The beginning of
the Let ten season in tbe Cath
olic ch irch is known as Ash
Wednesday. The custom of the
church tn Ash Wednesday is to print
the sign f the cross on the foreheads of
the comn unicants, reminding them of the
biblical declaration, "Thou art dust, and
unto dust thou shall return."
In its truest meaning Lent means
spring. The days are lengthening, and
Unrttn o- Lent means to lengthen, and
Untten-tid is but another form of the ex
pression, springtime. Hence tbe word
Lent contains within itself no more
thought if fasting than of feast tn
Lent is a movable fast depending on
the tickle moon. This, if nothing else
were offeed in evidence, would prove its
pagan or gin. On account of the uncer
tainly of tbe moon, lenten time has no
stated d'iy for arriving. This year it
opens o i Feb. 19 Last year Ash
Wednesdiy fell on March 6 In the
Catholic liurcti the following regulations
are obiter e1:
All the days af Lent are fasting. except
All pet sons who have completed their
tweDtv-first year, unless legitimately dis
pensed, 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 tbe morning. In the evening
a colUtit n not exceeding the fourth part
of an on inary meal is allowed
By dia lensation the use of fresh meat
is allowed at tbe principal meal on Mon
days, Tu :srlays, Thursdays and Sat ir
days, except tbe Saturday in Ember week
and the Saturday in Holy week .
The me of fish and ftVsh is not allowed
at tbe sane meal during Lent
All u ider twenty-one years of age,
those wto .r engaged in hard work, tbe
sick and convalescent , and persons who
cannot ast without sen us injury to
betilt' , are exempt from the fast Per
sons en ised from fasting on account of
tender hi e. bard labor and sickness are
not restr cted to tbe use of flest meat
only one meal on the days on which it is
allowed . Those who entertain any
reasonable doubt about their obligation to
fast or h is i am ought to apply to their
pastors for sdvice or dispensation.
In tb - Protestant Episcopal church
Lent is also regarded as important Rev
R F Saeet, rector of Trinity, has is
sued a n -at little pamphlet to his parish
oners relative to the season of ab

Societ,- is getting to observe this rig
orous pe-iod more and more every year,

rest tmt tbe gay whirl of winter festivi

thoroug ily enjoyed the gay season, now
find some appropriate fad to beguile the
tedious boors away in this penitential

The National Prlaan.
The Union, has returned to its old
tricks of misrepresenting the Argus in its
attempts to malign it. This may be due
in part to the morning paper's character
istic villifying disposition, and in part to
its ignorance of facts, also essentially
characteristic of its disposition. The
Arods is not hosti'e to the location of
one of the proposed national prisons
they are not strictly military prisons, as
the Union holds in Rook Island. Tbe
Argus has simply sustained tbe views of
Mayor McConochie and of Mr Fred Hass
that the prison should not be substituted
on the island of Rock Island for the pro
Dosed gun factory and should not be put
there at all if it is to bring with it a
source of illegitimate competition with
local labor. That is as far as the
Ahous has expressed itself and it has
plainly slated that tbe results of Con
gressman Qest's investigation in pursu
ance of the council's resolution should
afford opportunity to judge as to whether
the proposed prison is worthy of encour
agement or opposition. The locating of
one of tbe prisons in or near the city or
on one of tbe islands other than the gov
ernment island, is an entirely different
thing and could not work auy harm to
home labor and would be attended by
more or less advantage to the city and
should theref re receive hearty endorses
ment and support. The matter of lo
cating on the Island of Rock Island is
another thing, and an investigation
should he made before action Is taken.
That is the Anons' position. Is it plain
enough for the morning ninny?
