God does no patch work; whatever He does is done well. tt A good home is not made by a grand house. tt The bee rest on natural flowers, never on painted ones,, however inimitably the color may be laid on; apply this to all things. ft The mother that intrusts her children to the care of ser vants will, later, have such children intrust her to the care of the poor house. tt There are a great many fools in the world; he who would avoid seeing one must lock himself up alone, and break his looking glass. tt The actual doings in France, though not all persons re alize it, constitute a more momentous episode than the bar barities of Turkish soldiers in Albania, or the prospect of war in the Balkans. The future will prove the above assertion. tt Mr. Charles F. Lummis, a non-Catholic, whose exten sive sojourning in Spain and Mexico have resulted in some interesting works of travel, says in referring to the numerous works of philanthropy established by Spain in her American colonies, "no other nation has founded extensively such ben eficences in its colonies. It is a useful Delsartean attitude for the mind to try to 'fancy' England peppering New Eng land with schools, hospitals, asylums and churches for In dians. But that is what 'infamous' Spain did three hundred years ago up and down a space which measures something over one hundred and three New Englands.
