The Key. J. J. Boyle Delivered Fine
Sermon Tuesday Evening—Mis
sion Will Conclude Sunday
A mission is in progress at St.
Bernard’s Catholic church which will
conclude Sunday evening. The lec
tures which are being delivered night
ly beginning at 7:30 o’clock are at
tracting many people regardless of
religious affiliation, and the public Is
invited to be present any evening dur
ing the stay of the speakers. The
Tuesday evening sermon dwelt with
the great eternal truth, “It is appoint
ed unto men once to die and after
death, the pudgment.” As you live
you shall die. There is but one way
Vo die a holy and happy death and
that is to live a holy and God-fearing
From the parables of the gospel and
from the words of Christ the rever
end speaker pointed out the uncertain
ty of Ife and the supreme importance
of learning from the life of Christ
how to live and how to die.
“Every year,” he said, “the Catholic
church, with the voice of a tender
mother, calls all the world to witness
the stupendous drama of Calvary, the
death of Jesus Christ. The minds of
her children she prepares for that
solemn event by a season of silence
and prayer. Her ministers wear the
robes of sorrow during this period;
her music is hushed; the statues
veiled; and all the world is bidden to
look up from its accustomed labors, to
look up the sloping heights of Cal
vary where the cross stands bare
against the setting sun, where the sa
cred heart of Jesus has ceased to beat
and the white form of the Savior,
dead and drained of blood, hangs life
less and alone. And she says, my child
'learn there the meaning of life and ot
’death, for the dying Saviour is the
'center of the world and of time and
of life. There saint and sixmer alike
find comfort and consolation. Christ’s
earthly years must teach all how to
'live, and Christ’s death must teach all
'how to die.
God knows what is best for us and
yet he commands us to remember our
last end. Everything around us sug
gests life rather than death. The fall
ing leaf, gives promise of a future
spring. The meadows bleach and
whiten but to grow more green again.
The decaying seed holds promise of a
future resurrection. Then too the
world in which we live is forever try
ing to blot the word death from the
language. Death is a most unwelcome
subject for the health seekers, the
money seekers, the pleasure seekers
of the world. The world hates to hear
of death because death laughs at
( worldly wisdom, it mocks world power
and brings contempt on worldly aims.
And it is precisely that we may not
be deceived by the false wisdom of the
world that the Lord God commands
us to remember our last, end. Sin is
the only obstacle to a happy death.
To live free from sin is the guarantee
of life with God when time is no
In Tuesday’s work, Father Boyle
more than sustained all the splendid
impressions made on Sunday and
Monday. The missionary is surely a
most instructive and eloquent pleader
in the cause of Christ. Father Mulloy,
hlso a gifted speaker, will give the
chief sermon this evening.

If a certain actor had accompanied
a party of round-the-towners the oth
er night he would have been either
thrilled or embarrassed, says New
York Sun. After the theater the par
ty went to the Waldorf roof and saw
one of the actor’s former wives the
center of a gay, laughing party. The
next stop was at the Astor roof where
there was another former wife of the
same actor dining with a handsome
young gallant who danced divinely
and at the last stop on the Majestic
roof was the third former wife giving
a dinner to several women and tw 7 o
French army officers. It was hard to
tell which was the most beautiful.
They all seemed happy. It is remind
ful of another actor who went to an
other theater than his own to see a
play. He was seated next to a former
wife and her husband. They all chat
j ted pleasantly together and later
supped together. A strange town —

S. F. Stange is in receipt of a let
ter from his son, Bernard C. Stange,
Battery F, 348 F. A. in France. In
part he says: “Our outfit is about 12
miles southeast of Verdun where some
of our worst fighting took place. We
were all packed up ready to move to
the front on the day peace was de
clared and that happened on the lltfi
day, 11th hour and 11th month. So I
did not get any chance to take a shot
at some German but had the chance
to go to the front to see how things
were after all was over and there
sure was a sight to see. But as for
coming home just now we cannot
hope for the way things look to me
our outfit will go to Germany to do
police duty so the Germans will not
have a chance to start something
again. But I think as soon as peace Is
signed up right and Germany does all
it has to do we boys will soon be
home. I feel good now and always
have since I am in the army and also
got in with a good bunch of boys, and
also have a good captain, Quinn from
California, and all the other officers
are good, but for all, home is the place
for me and would like very much to
get home by spring so i could put In
the crops. Our outfit was a good one.
We had the things to rip old Germany
up. A six inch gun does roar when it
is fired and that was all heavy artil
lery work. When I get back I can tell
you more than I can by letter.”
Oscar Schmutzler, with the Ameri
can forces in France, writes an inter
estng letter to his parents in which
he describes the manner that his
company “went over the top” on the
day that the armistice was signed.
The American forces knew of the sign
ng before the Germans and retreated
back into their dugouts amid the fir
ing of the enemy. Later the soldiers
of both armies took part in a regular
In a recent letter from France writ
ten by Henry McGowan, he says it is
not very easy to get mail over there.
He says he’s glad the war is over and
the troops are to return home. He’s

the French girls are not up to the U.
S. A. product on looks and he has
traveled quite extensively. He ex
pects to be in the states soon, and he
never wants to leave it again.
Mrs. Anna Lotz is in receipt of a let

A base hospital in Prance. He did not
state whether he was wounded or
sick but only mentioned that he was

It hasn’t been many years ago since it was the general custom to
choose gifts regardless of their usefulness or real merit. Consequently
each year a great many gifts found their way into bureau drawers to

One’s Personal Influence.
Every one casts a shadow. There
hangs about us a sort of penumbra—a
strange, indefinable something—which
we call personal influence, which has
its effect on every other life on which
It falls. It goes with us wherever we
go. It is not something we can have
when we will, as we lay aside a gar
ment. It is ' - something that al
ways pours out from our life, like light
from a lamp, 'ike heat a flame,
like perfume from a flower.

Rhubarb Useful to Gardenia.
Rhubarb, apart from its usefulness,
has values for its beauty. The giant
Chinese variety, with Its enormous
leaves, is often employed by landscape
gardeners to produce bold sub-tropical
effects; nor do they always disdain
the charms of the more modest pie
plant itself, of which the tall, graceful
spikes of white flowers and 1 rge
leaves, deeply veined and stained, are
as certainly handsome as the succn*
lent stalks are palatable.
