307 THE INDIAN ADVOCATE.
We pass through this world but once. Anything we can
do, or any kindness we can show to a human being, let us. not
delay it, nor neglect it for we shall not pass this way again.
The soul of a child is a noble and precious field; whatever
you sow or plant therein by good instruction, will bring
forth frequently golden fruits which will afford to you a rich
and golden harvest.
Do not entertain a suspicious thought of your brother, for
that takes away purity of heart. If you lived among the
angels and gave heed to what was going on, many things
would seem to you not to be good, because you do not under
stand them.
The New York World has looked up the Indian statistics
and finds that there are more Red men in the country now
than when the Pilgrims landed at Plymouth Rock. It is
hard to tell how many Indians there were in the country at
the time of the first white settlement, as there was no way of
counting them then; but the chances are,.they were not
nearly so numerous as believed, and it may be true as the
World finds that Red men are actually increasing instead
of dying.
The highest duty of Catholic parents consists in giving
their children an education that will fit them not only for the
present life, but which will prepare them for the life to come
as well. Our public schools being irreligious, necessarily
fail to develop the moral instincts of our children which all
Catholics know to be of paramount importance. "What will
it profit a man if he gain the whole world and lose his own
soul?" are the burning words of the Divine Teacher of man
kind and well worth the serious consideration of Catholic
parents.
