But, you have universities and high

but everywhere against the one truth,
sod the one Church and the one Christ,
who has said, " I am the Truth."
Each man is talking to a knot of his
neighbors, and the loudest is convincing
most. Now and then, a voice happens to
dlstinguish itself, like that of the strsnger
mentioned above, and rising above the
habbub it commands a momentary lull,
which only breaks again into a loader con
nerd of unpoar and commotion. Whose

scientist, like Huxley, or a statesman, like

mt key of the prevailing excitement, and
had rung it out with a louder ring on the
one subject wherein alone they all agree,
and than one is what it ever has been
trying down the Truth and always saying
the same thing.
Catholics are in the midst of this world,
are part and parcel of it. Can we flatter
ourselves that they are altogether free

they are as though they used it not; and
having so much to do with non-Catholic

tholic's door, or walks into his store, and
nets the very same newspaper right down

atmosphere, and the common mind is do
fraunded of its common sense to sic that e

to their yearnings must be bad under the
suon, and a rest has to be found in this 1
warfare upon earth, or else-everlasting
woel "0 Truth, thou has made our heart
for thee, and they cannot rest till they
repose in thee!' This is the cry of our
wandering brethren-this the yearning of
their soul, naturally Christian, naturally
religious and devout. And to them it is, t
and to this beautiful cry, so touching in I
the ear of God, that an answer is given, not n
Ly preachers whom God has appointed, e
not by teachers of the old Gospel, but by c
babblers of a new one-by throats and by s
tongues and by lips, of which He hath said: ii

Can Truth keep silence and lt the bar- w
barians talk I Our readers know what we Ic
mean by Truth. Christ hath told us: " I w
am the Truth." Can His Heart refrain and p,
His tongue keep silence I The eyes of the w
wise old philosopher filled with tears and to
his breast heaved with emotion, when an C
a empty talker robbed him of his disciples. fo
I So our Lord has had to weep more than ii
a once, and His Heart iore than once has to
beaten fast for us out of love and out of a
desire : " Oh, how am I straightened," he tb
exclaimed. " until my baptism be accom- be
plished." He came to cast fire on the earth, b
and He yearns only to have it kindled. He
chose Apostles and set them to goand bring as
forth fruit, and fruit which should remain. is
He sanctified Himself that His little ones to
might be sanctified in Truth. He offered to
Himself up for ns, to redeem us from all to
iniquity, and purify for Himself an accent- or
I able people, a pursuer of good works. Will es
His Heart admit of His keeping silence, of S
I His holding His peace, now, in circum m
a stances such as beset us, when there is, as di
the Wise Man says, not only " a time to of
I keep silence, but also a time to speak ;not A
I only a time of peace, but also a time of sa
I war " as
We do not indeed mistake the character ri
of Our Lord, who is the Truth, if we say bl
that He loved silence and sought retire- se
I ment. He lived during thirty years in the a
little house at Nazareth, and then when His w
time was come to shine forth during three i
years, it was only to the house of Israel. "I at
am not sent except to the lost sheep of the gi
house of Israel." And in that house He am
spoke chiefly by actions : " He began to do of
and to teach." "He will not cry," said b
Isaias describing Him, "nor will His voice b;
be heard in the streets: He shall not be sad Is
nor troublesome." He is sweet and mild, it
I reaching from end to end mightly, dispos- ol
ing all things sweetly. His spirit "one is
and manifold" is "subtle, agile, active, T
I sweet." Though in Him all things are P
made and subsist, yet nothing comes into h
collision with Him. He is irresistibly sweet. m
"While one in Himself He can do all things; as
while remaining in Himself the same, He tl
maketh all things new; And through nations a
conveyeth Himself into holy souls, making d
them friends of God." This is His personal it
character. Without doubt He is a silent d
Truth, a " hidden God." e
But since a voice must be heard on the m
t housetops and in the streets, and Heo resides n:
silently in the Tabernacle all the while, t
does it not seem that He is making ioom
for us. and inviting us to speak in His be
I half, and It nd Him our voicet St. John
the Baptist 'was the first to do so: " I am
the voice," lie said "of one crying in the
desert." And we know what Oar Lord
thought of him. "Amen, I say to you, T
among those born of women there hath not
risen a greater than John the Baptist." p
I 'I hen the Apostles were the next to lend A
their voices : "Their sound hath gone d
forth into all the earth; and their words c,
unto to the end of the world." And what ti
did Our Lord say to them T "You shall
sit on twelve thrones judging the twelve '
i tribes of Israel." Lastly, His preachers ti
and HIis teachers will be His voice unto fi
r the end of time-and ' they who guide el
e others to justice shall shine like stars for ail ri
The question which interests us at pres t,
a ent is, shall we lend this voice of ours T u
Will we epeak out t judging it a shame to a
e keep silence, when so many are ranged y
against' Christ and His Church, when the r
i Gentiles rage, and barbarians devise vain o
e and evil things. g
, First of all, there is the voice of our
actions, which speaks most eloquently of ft
g Him. He covets them, saying: "So let p
your light shine before men, that they may a
I, see your good works, and glorify your a
r Father." " In this shall all men know that c
e you are my disciples, if you have live for t
d one another." a
d In the second place, there is the voice of fi
our prayer. " Pray for one another, that c
you may be saved.,' says St. James. Our ti
Lord bids us to pray al-ways. He points a
t to the harvest which is always ripe; and ti
He asks us can we not pray one hour with p
SHim. Less than this required by theApoe- r
tleship of Prayer. Let only the works you c
do, and the words you say, and the thoughts
Syou think, be offered up with an intention. r
It is enough.
S In the third place, there is the voice of c
the tongue and of the pen. To the faithful b
s who can use either, whether by speaking
r or writing, Pineus IX, the Vicar of Christ,
addresses exhortations, and adds encour- C
Sagement. " By the pen," he says, " we
amust destroy the work of the pen." He b

I THE ROMANCE OF 00MMI*CE AS SHOWN IN
THB CAREER OF SIU TITUS SALT.
(Loedon Telersapi Dee. 3T.)
With the death of Bir Titus Balt, baron
ends a career which may not inaptly besaid
to belong to the romance of commerce, for a
the story of how the owner 8altaire made t
his fortune is indeed singular. Many years v
ago there were consigned to a firm of mer- t:
chants in Liverpool several bales of some b
strange hairy wool from Australia. No- r
body had ever seen the like of It before; no- a
body thought much of it; and thus it lay n
stowed away in a shed at the docks as v
though it were so much lumber. It hap- e
pened one day that Mr. Titus Salt, a small a
manufacturer of Yorkshire, was in in Liv- a
erpool, and, wandering about the docks, he a
chanced to come across this neglected con it
signment of seeming rubbish. He exam- t
ined it, ho ever, and asked if he might be a
allowed to take some of it away with him. p
Of course he obtained permission to carry w
off as much as he pleased. What he did a4
with the samples thus procured need not tl
be told. Suffice it to say that he came tl
back again, offered to purchase the whole m
of the " rubbish," and became its possessor at
for a merely nominal sum. This hairy ill
wool, this trash which no one would even tt
look at as marketable commodity, and of di
which Mr. Titus Salt secured the mono- in
poly, was alpaca. Such was the way in w
which the fortunes of the great manufao- fe
turer and millionaire, who died at his seat, ki
Crowanest near Halifax, yesterday, were he
founded. For years Mr. Salt and his fam- el
ily were the sole makers of that useful ma- ni
terial which has grown to be something like 114
a rival for cotton ; ao on the strength of ni
the valuable patent they thus acquired they cc
built a factory which, with extensions, has at
become one of the largest in En and.
This huge hive of industry, conspicuous
as It is to the eye of, the passing traveller, Pe
is not, however, the most remarkable fea- O0
tore of Saltaire. Surrounding the vast fac- en
tory is a large village or small town, con
taiing many thousand inhabitants, every
one of whom of working age is s)mehow .
employed at the big alapaca mill. Sir Titus
Salt was the sole landlord of this busy com
munity, and the manner in which he
discharged his responsibilities as such is
one of the most notable facts of his times.
At his own expense and under his personal
supervision he provided everything that
seemed necessary for the moral and mate
rial well-being of this little kingdom. He
built for his people baths and wash-houses, 1
schools and places of recreation ; he erected
a mechanics' institute, the appointments of
which will compare with those of a fash
ionable club; and he also caused to be con
strucnated a chapel attached to the Congre
gationlist body, of which all that can be
said in the way' of objection is that it is c.
only too splendid. Saltaire, in short, has
been established on what may be called a C
basis o' practical philanthropy, while a
laudable attempt to guard the morals of its B
inhabitants has been made in the rigid ex
elusion from the place of all public traffic (
in intozcating liquor. In these things Sir
Titus Salt both meant well and did well.
Personally he was an intelligent, kind- 1
hearted man, a progressive politician, a
munificent contributor to public charties,
and a zealous promoter of popular educea a
tion. His life has been usetul in many
Ways. He made his fortune by the intro
duction of a useful and valuable commod- 1
ity, and be spent a large portion of it in c
doing substantial good to those he at once E
employed and served. In the history of the "
manufacturing industry of England few i
names will have so high a place of honor as
that of Titus Salt.
An English Editor on American Railways. 14
Mr. Walter, of the London Times, has
been interviewed by a New York paper
The report sayS:
" Mr. Walter di not feel himself com-,
petent to judge of the cxomfort of ordinary ti
American railway travelling. lie had rid- p
den so luxuriously in the special Pullman
car which had been placed at his disposal
that he was unable to form an idea of the
way in which other people travelled.
'The palace car,' he exclaimed enthusias
tically, 'is fit for the Queen to ride in ! In
fact, it is much handsomer than the one
she uses.' The liberality with which rail
road directors carried him to and fro over E
the land was a cause of great astonishment
to Mr. Walter. It was a courtesy entirely
unknown in England. The Queen herself E
was obliged to pay immense sums every
year for railway conveyance, and no rail
road company in all England would think -
of offering a coach for the free u-e of any I
gentleman, public or private. The Ameri
can car, in Mr. Walter's estimation, was
far superior to the English carriage. The
possibility of being shut in with thieves or
madmen (it had fallen to his own lot to be 1
shut in with a madman); the close,
cramped quarters which, in their very na
ture, stifled all the cdmfort out of the r
unhappy traveller; the partitioning a man n
from the sight and society of his fellow
creaturs ; and above all, the shortness of
the carriages, which caused them to sway
and jerk about so violently that conversa
tion became a torture and reading an im
possibility-all these things combine to
render a journey in an English railway
carriage a matter of something worse than
nopleasantoness. The 'permanent way,' or
road bed, of the English;ailroad was much p
more substantial than that of the Ameri
cans; but the English carriages could not
be compared with the American cars." 2
WATER VERSUS RAIL.--The New York
Ocal Trade Journal says : "The actual cost
of transporting coal by rate between Pitts
burg and Louisville is as low as one and
three- quarter cents per bushel, including the
return of the empty craft, equal to forty
seven cents per too, a distance of 600 miles, I
while the cost of transporting coal from C
Louisville to New Orleans, a distance of
1,400 miles, is two cents per bushel-fifty
five cents per ton. At the lowest rate of
railroad transportation fifty-five cents
would not transport a ton of coal sixty
miles. There is no such cheap and speedy
transporation elsewhere in the world for
bulky freight, the passage from Pittsburg '
to Louisville requiring less than five days,
and from Louisville to New Orleans less
than ten days, under circumstances at all
favorable. Bridge obstructions between 1
Pitteburg and Louisville increasing the
trip one day. and the same at the falls de

From the elaborate tables drawn up b
Dr. Farr. it would seem, as it as can b
made out, there are certain very criticl
eriods in our career. A baby for instanto

between the teeth and fifteenth years excl
rely is that in which the death average I
the smallest. At about thirty five we mue
begin to take care of ourselves. At this p.
riod oonstitutional changes set in; our hal
and teeth begin to fail uas our digestion ii
no longer what it used to be ; welose the
vigor of youth and neglect out-door exer
cise; above all the cares of life begin t:
nake themselves perceptibly felt. It is
at this time that death from suicide takei
a marked place in the returns of mortal
ity, and there is also considerable reoas
to believe that babits of intemperance an
apt to suddenly develop themselves. The
picture, however, has its sunshiny side. I1
would take, of course, a professional
actuary to deduce from Dr. Farr's table
their exact result. It appears, however,
that if a man tides over his fiftieth year he
may make tolerable certain of living t
seventy, while if he reaches his seventy.
fifth year there is very asong presumption
that he will either turn his ninetieth birth
day or very near it. A still more interest
ing question is opened by a series of tables
whicn show the average mortality in dif
ferent professions and pursuits. Game
keepers are, for obvious reasons, the
healthiest class of our whole population
clergymen and agricultural laborers come
next, and are followed by barristers; so.
