The- old year Is gone. It haa
disappeared beyond recall. Its
record Is made up, and made up for
eternity. What was thought and
said and done during it remains now
Indelible. The use that was made
of its time can not now be changed.
But 1913 Is here. Its history Is
still unwritten. Its page Is now
without a blot. Its time may be
utilized. It can be filled with good
deeds. What are you going to do
with 1913? Here we present three
resolutions every Catholic young
man should make:
First, to live a Catholic, faithful
to the practice of religion, sober and
Second, to make himself excep
tionally skillful at some special
special employment.
Third, to save some money every
week until he has at least $1,000 in
There are plenty of other good
resolutions that a man may prof
itably make and keep. To make
the three above mentioned will be
no hindrance to others. But these
three ought to be made, as a rule, by
all. They are a foundation on which
everyone may build a superstruc
tnre to Dlease himself. But to ad
vance in grace and virtue, to excel
In some gainful pursuit by which a-
living may be earned, and to prac.

public. The paragraph in his speech
which caused most comment, how
ever, and will without doubt cause
consternation in some circles, was a3
"I could pick out some gentlemen,

office in which a man must put on
his war paint. Fortunately I am
not of such a visage as to mind
marring it, and I do not care whether
the war paint Is becoming or not.
And it need not be worn with
truculence. A man can keep his

have found that be sometimes , dis

thrust that is delivered with a scowl.
And there must he some good hard

years, but In the next generation, In

Though meager the news from
London contlnuea encouraging for
home rule for Ireland. Cabling the
Chicago Tribune the Hon. T. P.
O'Connor, M. P., the Nationalist
leader in England, says the poli
ticians already are beginning their
preparations for a renewal of the
big fight over the home rule bill on
Monday next after the brief vacation,
and John Redmond has sent an
urgent message to all Irishmen to
attend the Commons, lest the Tories
attempt another snap divislou. In
the meantime the Tory split keeps
widening, and the quarrel which
Christmas day Interrupted is now
going strong again, and Bonar Law's
position as opposition leader is be-
"coming more impossible daily.

The movement for the celebration
of one hundred years of peace be
tween England and he United States
is said to be very popular on the
other side of the Atlantic. Perhaps
so. But it will scarcely

the opinion of the Omaha True Voice,
'ihe attitude of England during the
civil war was not exactly peaceable
and that was only fifty years ago.
Then there is the Panama canal tolls
question which, Just now, is not
making many friends for England in
this country. We can safely postpone
that celebration for another fifty
years at least.
Merchants take stock at the be
ginning of the year to determine
the condition of their business and
to find out how they stand before
the world. This good rule observed
by every careful man suggests
stock taking in the more serious and
important business of salvation.
How-do you stand before God?
Perhaps the only civilized country
in the world which no longer accords
any official observance of New Year's
day is Great Britain, where business
of every kind, of the State as well
as of finance, trade, and industry,

was carried on as usual. Elsewhere
in Europe New Year's day is not only
a legal but a popular holiday.

Don't let the Christmas spirit get

While the meeting of Trinity
Council was not largely attended
Monday ntRht the proceedings were
spirited and the elate was swept
clean. The Social Club Committee
repcrted that forty members had
been enlisted as members, with John
M. Hennesey as President. The re
port was received with applause.
This club will give its initial dance
at the club house next Thursday
night. New Year's day the club
nouse was thronged at the reception
tendered the members and their
friends, and every one present
voiced the praises of Trinity as a
host. Every feature on the pro
gramme was carried out to the let
ter, with not a dull moment during
the three hours, end when the hour
for dispersing arrived everyone
seemed to sigh a regret that the
happy affair was over. The children
were delighted with Santa Claus and
the Christmas tree that was so
abundantly loaded with toys for
them. The pool and pinochle tour
naments were warmly contested,
and the vocal and other numbers
were artistically rendered and well
received. Taken altogether this has
been a great week for Trinity

tnd of Cloys Contest Tor
Possession of Air
Another tragedy that brought sor
row and gloom to a happy household
occurred early New Year's eve, when
Charles Finegan, fifteen years old,
accidentally shot and almost In
stantly killed his twelve-year-old
brother, Hugh Finegan, at the home
of their parents, 533 Zane street.
Tho boys were having a good
natured contest for the possession
of a Flohert rifle when it wss
accidentally discharged, the bullet
penetrating the younger boy's
heart. Hugh fell to the floor, mor
tally wounded, and became uncon
scious at once. The unfortunate boy
was still alive when the grief
stricken mother readier his side, but
died before his father could be
called from his work at the office of
tho Adams Express Company, where
he is Assistant Superintendent. For
the parents and almost heartbroken
brother there is felt the deepest sym
pathy. The funeral took place yes
terday morning from St. Louis Ber
trand'a church.
Attack Made on Guard P.
J. Mulkern In State
Patrick J. Mulkern, of this city,
now a guard at the Frankfort Pen
itentiary, was seriously cut on the
face and neck while trying to
separate Leonard Isaacs and Bob
Stevens, two white convicts who were
fighting. Isaacs had a grudge
against Stevens", it Is said, and
while they were at work In the shoe
shop, witnesses say, ruBhed over and
grabbed him, shoving his head back
while he slashed savagely across his
throat with a knife. Guard Mulkern
hurried over to stop the fight, when
Isaacs turned on him and slashed
him from the left eye down across
the cheek and in the neck. He
grappled with Isaacs and kept him
from doing any more cutting till
J. A. Brown, another guard, came
to the rescue and overpowered the
convict. Mulkern's wound was an
ugly one, but fortunately the knife
reached no vital point. Nine
stitches had to be taken in the gash.
The wounded man was able to return
to Louisville to remain at his home
until he recovers sufficienly to re
sume his duies as guard.
