Though Inferior to Protestant institutions
Protestants Patronize Them to Sorrow. By Rev. C. F, Wemberly Prom The Christian Witness, July 22,1915. Onr people are asleep ou many vital proposition, touching life and morals, bnt oa uo point do we seem to be so incapable of be ing aroused as on the question of Oatholioism in general, and Catho lie schools in paiticn’.ar, we mean, of oourse, our Protestant pe. ple. The question of Romish school, especially their institutions for girls, presents and unfathomable conundrum. That system; we cannot call it a church, as Carlisle has truly oalled it “the most gi gantic delusion of the ages,’’ has in the faoe of all history, observa tion, and experience created an impression that Catholic sohoole are the best and most thorough Just how this idea has fastened it self upon us is the mystery. But it has, and Protestant people are making themselves the henchmen and dupes of Rome by helping to propagate this falsehood. Noth ing oould be farther from the truth. One must be in school work to know the extent to which this idea has grown; on the other hand, one must know the spirit and ani mus of Rome to understand why she has dotted our land with acad emies and convents, equaling in numbers and building display all suoh institutions of Protestantism oombined. Someone who doubt* tne situa tion touthing the relation of two systems of eduoation should ex plain how it is that our Protest . ant Bohools must put men in the field and campaign as vigorously as a candidate seeking office. By so doing they can scarcely make “tongue and buckle meet.” borne do not make them meet. But a score of “Sacred Hearts,” ”bt. Vincent’s,” ‘ St. Oeoilia’s,” ,l5t. Mary’s," and “Holy Rosaries” remain quietly behind their ten foot walls, and have all the girls they want. Who ever met up with au agent out drumming for some convent or Saint Somebody? We have been doing work for our schools several seasons, in this and other States, and we have the first one to hear of. They don’t have to get out and hustle; our blind, deluded Pro testant fathers and mothers act as their advanoe agents, that is so much better, So long as the de lation remains as it is we can do the hustling and they get the girls. We wonder if all our preachers see this thing in its true perspective. Here and there we find Methodist, Baptist, Presbyterian and Chris tian Champbellite girls attending convents. One rule of our minis terial oareer we have religiously lived up to: no Protestant girl within the bounds of this preach er’s bailiwick getB off to a Cath olic school without our vigorous protest. At suoh time we are Protestant in deed and in truth. Much could be done by our pas tors to counteract this dangerous idea, but not all, the delusion is upon us. nr i. _ - £_ V» O UOTul LUD u uuo wx vixx m. x — testant victims of convent delu sion without quietly getting from them all the infoimation possible Here are a few items which some of our picus fathers and mothers ought to let filter into their gray matter receptaoles, if possible. In one convent there were 140 boarders, 70 per cent of them were Protestant girls. In another there were 20 Protestant girls, 17 of them joined the Catholic Church, two more were taken out to pre vent them from joining. But the harm was done; those girls are ruined for and fruitfulness in the future to their own denomina tions. We once had a neighbor who was a zealous member of the Presbyterian Church; their daugh ter young and beautiful, had grad uatud from a convent. Frequent ly we have known her to leave home on some pretext; then with prayer book, concealed, hurry to the Calholio Church several blooks away. Those same parents had stoutly defended their aotion, as to the choice of sohool, declaring that their daughter’s ohuroh affili ations were unmolested. This same girl could not have passed an ex amination for a certificate to ter,oh a country sohool; she was incapable of writing a oorreot sentence in Eugligh. She had gotten what Rome seeks to give: not eduoation, but training in the ik glory of the “Holy Chthjlic Ohuroh.’’ We once had a friend who was a converted priest, having spent uiue years in their colleges aud seminaries He was densely ig norant of the Bible, and confessed teat his iguorince of any true learning was a souroe of m irtifioa tiou to him. We have never known a woman, educated in Catholic school, who ever put it into prac tical use. They go out, aud just imagine they are educated This discussion, with its object lessons aud living examples, might be nrolonged indefinitely; but we wish to make some general obser* vations aud deductions as to why Protes auts ought not, under any circumstances, patronize Catholic ■ nhnnls. First, ROME DOES NOT BE LIEVE IN EDUCATION. This is a strong statement, but abso lutely true. Outside of Protest ant oountrits she does uot pretend to educate the masses. Rome has blighted with the curse of ignor ance every country she has fully controlled. Every Latin oouutry on earth substantiates this state ment. Rome, in her present ec clesiastical role, has had undis puted sway in Italy for sixteen oeutunei, and 85 per oeut of her people are illiterate. If she be lieves in education, why does she fight to the bitter end our public schools? The reason is obivious, the public schools eduoate; the paroch'al school does uot, only pacifies and keeps the blight of the churoh upon the pejple. Rime cannot afford to educate; her meat and drink are ignorauoe and superstition. Rome is forced to make appearances i n countries where the masses seek education. Second. W e venture a still stronger statement: ROME CAN NOT GIVE A LIBERAL EDUCA TION The reason for this lies more in the system than in the motives of their teaohers. How can tneir priests auu inters im part what they do not possess? Under the limelight of a broad, liberal education, Rome would diB integrate; a system that holds an iron grip censor on every book, every study their people pursue, cannot be other than narrow and faulty. There are seme biauohei upon which Catholic schools place great emphasis; but thiuk of R me teaching an authentic work on the history of civilisation or of the chureb. These two branches are the foundation cf an educa tion. The paganism and false d gmas of Rome could not stand in the light of true leaning; do one knows this better than Rome and her emissaries. The mythol ogies of ancient Rome are as ra tional as the dogmas aud tenants of Christian (?) Rome. When we make the statement that Rome canuot educate, we mean exactly that. Three fasets a s further proof. (1) Beoause her teaohers, men and women, are the ex ponents of a system that grows and flourishes on the iguorance and gullibility of the communi cants; teaohiug can go only so far and no farther. (2) Our Pro testant pupils get the same till of fare as they give their owu. Only those who have felt the pulse and sincerity of Protestant educa tiou can know the saultiuess and shallowness of Catholio schools. (3) A system that eliminates the Bible as a fundamental part of th curriculum is a shell whithout a keruel bark without ths sap Not only is the Bible kept from the people, but the priest aud sisters are themselves iguoraut of the Word. A converted priest who bad beed trained from academy to seminary told the writer that three weeks would cover all the study be had had of the precious Book. The facts are, for thorough ness and breadth, the Catholic sohools are not in the same class with our own schools. Third. And we wish we could make this point sufficiently strong to penetrate the molly-ooddle brains of otherwise good people; ALL THE KINDNESS AND SYMPATHY SHOWN OUR GIRLS, WHILE UNDER THEIR TUITION, IS PREMEDIATING HYPOCRISY. Catholic girls have confessed the partiality shown Protestant girls. They are the moBt consummate proselyters on earth, but they do it by indirect methods. Rome never fights in the open until she has the soepter of power. This indireot method is the dope that hoodwinks the parents aud unsophisticated daughters. Rome is organized from the pope to the humblest ■ im? i . . .. member of the Knights of Colum bus; they are not for education, salvation or civilisation, but to bring wealth and power to the *’Womau”desoribed in Revelation. Fourth, We must keep iu mind that ROME BIDS ONLY FOR OUR GIRLS. They make no effort to reaoh our boys. When th9 womanhood is loyal to the onurch she has 1.0 fear of the fu ture. In this she shews a deep iaid sohume. The shortest route for winning a nation to this cult is by winniug the future molheiB; this she is seekiug to do with all ;he Jesuit duplioity. nun. i ne.oia time rnnistines were no more under the ban of re ligious ostracism than we are re garded by the minions of the Va tican. Every Protestant parent, not married by a preiet, is living in adultery; the very girls we place in their care, bf stowing smiles and caresses upcu them as they do, are nothing less than ille gitimate children. Protestants who deny this advertise their ig norance. Catbolias who deny it are wilfnl prejnrers. Sixth. Catholics are careful never to plaoe their girls in Pro testant schools; the priest controls this matter, when he issues one of his ultimatums; but Protestants ignore the advive of their pastors. The exceptions to this rule, even to i nr public sohools, are when the church has prsotioally lost its grip upon them. Seventh. By patronizing Cath olic sohools we are placing money, inflaenoe and prestige into the hands and coffers of the most treasonable and dangerous menace with which our country mnt soon er or later reckon. The rule of Rome meaus death to our free in stitutions and blood-bonght privi leges. Iu all history there is not one exception, “Roma uever changes.” Step by step we are passing the scepter back to the hand which swung the sword and dagger on St. Bartholomew’s Day, leaving behind 100,000 murdered Protestants; baok to the "syna gogue of Satan,” which oould in stitute the hellish Inquisition fcr many centuries, and her popei sirg the Te Denies after the husefc eries. 6U RIGHT AT IT Frleods and Neighbors in Saiisbuiy Will Show voi a Way.

HUSBAND RESCUED DESPAIRING WIFE — After Four Years of Discouraging Conditions, Mrs. Bullock Gave Up in Despair. Husband Came to Rescue. Catron, Ky.—In an interesting letter from this place, Mrs. Bettie Bullock writes as follows: “I suffered for four years, with womanly troubles, and during this time, I could only sit up for a little while, and could not walk anywhere at all. At times, 1 would have severe pains in my left side. The doctor was called in, and his treat ment relieved me for a while, but I was soon confined to my bed again. After that, nothing seemed to do me any good. I had gotten so weak I could not stand, and I gave up in despair. At last, ray husband got me a bottle of Cardui, the woman’s tonic, and I com menced taking it. From the very first dose, I could tell it was helping me. I can now walk two miles without its tiring me, and am doing all my work.” If you are all run down from womanly troubles, don’t give up in despair. Try Cardui, the woman’stonic. It has helped more than a million women, in its 50; years of continuous success, and should 1 surely help you, too. Your druggist has sold Cardui for years. He knows what it will do. Ask him. He will recom mend it. Begin taking Cardui today. Write to: Chattanooga Medicine Co., Ladies* Advisory Dept., Chattanooga, Tenn., for Special Instructions on your case and 64-page book.

J-62 j -i-9 Red Devil Lye EATS UP FILTH FILTH MAKES FLIES, AND OUT-HOUSES ARE FLY FACTORIES Make Your Out-House Sanitary The odors arising from privies are sickening and unbearable, particularly in summer. They are also the breeding place for flies and other vermin. Flies carry disease germs direct from such places to the baby’s milk, the meats, vegetables, pies and other foodstuffs. Typhoid fever is invariably transmitted from germs that originated in out-houses and such breeding places, and these germs are usually carried to the house and kitchen by flies that take an air route. RED DEVIL LYE, plentifully sprinkled in privies every tivo or three days, will eat up the filth deposits, keep such places sanitary, and wipe out the pestiferous fly. The cost is trifling, while the benefits can not be measured in dollars and cents. Use Red Devil Lye for this impdttant purpose, you will be amazed to find how it actually eats up the filth. Do it at once, and get rid of the filth, flies and odors. RED DEVIL LYE Is Death to the Fly BIG CANS 5c. and 10c., pulverized, ready to sprinkle. Write for Booklet “PREVENT.” WM. SCHIELD MFG.
