Aprcuil CnUle I)ttrMh to Tin. Sl.v Home, Jan. Si). Tho Congregation of the Index has Issued a decree placing a ban on all the works of Maurice Maeter linck, the Belgian author and poet. All the faithful arc forbidden to rad. keep, burrow or sell his works, One of th.' latebt books of the Helgtm poet, which may have cuus.d the Catho lic Church to object to his writings. Is "Immortality," In which he discusses the question of u future life from a phllo hophlcal point of iew. After laying stress on the Impossibility of tile human brain grasping this tremendous problem even to the extent of being able to formu lttto It In definite, words. M. Mueterlluck says : "It ctenm to us that if our existence after death Is not continued Kith the wor ries tho littleness, und the. defects which characterize It to-day our Individually will be lost, thnt each one of us will lu- come a drop of lgnorur.es In tho Imnit .is-1 ocean of the in. known mid that theretort , what lmpp ns after this llfo Is no con cern of ours. "What IniinuiUtlUy can b promised to men who necessarily concelvo It In this fashion" What would there bo to do In such a future state'.' This Is the question proposed to us by nn instinct, puerile, jet profound. All Immortality which does not drug through eternity, like the, ball ami chain of the prisoners which we are. that strange consciousness formed during the years, all Immortality which does not bear this Indelible sign of our Identity Is for us as if It did not exist. Thu majority of religion" havo understood this, nnd have taken Into account this Instinct which gives birth to and destroys at tho same moment tho dtfilre for a future life. It Is thus that the Catholic Church, going baek to the mot prhnltlie hopes, guaran tees to us not alone the Integral contlnu aneo of the terrestrial ego but the resur rection of our bodies." In another book entitled "I. Mort" M. Maeterlinck examines the question of sur vival In a morn detailed manner. His con clusion In tills book Is an absolute rejec tion of the Idea of hell and lie expressed the conviction that no matter what may come after life on eaith It cannot bo worse thun llfo Is for us here, no matter now we have conducted ourselves during this life. M. Maeterlinck received thu Nobel prize for literature In 1911. MISS CRUFT LEFT $1,249,406. Public Beqnesta of Boston Woman Amounted to :(3,000. BoaTOS, Jan. 30.
