INFANT MORTALITY is something tfrightfiil We can hardly realize that of
all the children horn in civilized countries twenty two per ccntv or nearly
one quarter die before they reach one yeaf thirty seven per cent or more than
one third before they are five and one half before they are fifteen
We do not hesitate to say that a timely use of Castoria would save a ma
jority of these precious lives Neither do we hesitate to say that many of these
infantile deaths are occasioned by the use of narcotic preparations Drops tinctures
and soothing syrups sold for childrens complaints contain more or less opium or
morphine They are in considerable quantities deadly poisons In any quantity
they stupefy retard circulation and lead to congestions sickness death Castoria
operates exactly the reverse but you must see that it bears the signature of
Chas H Fletcher Castoria causes the blood to circulate properly opens the
pores of the skdi and allays fever

An Excellent Production of A Day
nnd a Msht
The final week of the summer season of
Hovtlan comedes at the Grand was In
augurated yesterday when two large au
diences applauded the capable work of
the comedy stock company in A Day and
a Night Despite the humidity every
eat in the roomy playhouse was occu
pied last night and the terrors of high
temperature were forgotten during three
V hours of merriment The production Is
as near perfection as the author himself
might have wished it and is even more
elaborate and more satisfactory than tho
presentation given the farce during its
former appearance in this city The
characters have been distributed among
the members of the clever company with
great discretion and from Otis Harlan
who Is once more the Marble Hart which
lie originated to the members of the
chorus who assist In the specialties
hardly a word of adverse criticism can
be used The fun making piece has been
carefully groomed The hitches and
rough spots have either been eliminated
or smoothed over and the result with
the aid of the many delightful specialties
introduced i3 very enjoyable and Is cer
tain to draw big crowds all weclc

is high praise as he is a finished come

humor of the playwright as the latter In

all the part offered her Andrew Bode
was Savage Noves the deacon and con
tributed his share to tho fun of the per

as N Guge Chips the stage manager
and introduced some specialties worth
the price of admission alone David

Hcnriette Lee the charming widow la
the former productions has a new field
as Ada Marr the footlights favurlte and
is clellgntcul throughout Jlary Marble
is the ludicrous country girl and
succeeds In gaining favor Some of
the specialties worth seeing are Clara

There appears to be little alirm on tho
pirt of the local Knights of Columbus In
consequence of the nctlon of Bishop Jans
sen of Belleville lit against the estab
lishment of tho society ia his diocese
Knights of the ordr in Washington do
not conceive tht Bishop Janssen is sup
ported in his attltutle of antipathy to the
order by any prominent dignitaries of
the Catholic Church nor U any action
agnlnst th9 order anticipated on the part
of American Bishops Cardinals or the
Many of the highest official of the Cath
olic Church In this country are members
of the order and confidence In their sup
port Is Mt Other prominent officials of
tho Church have sanctioned its mystic
ritual which Is open to all priests to
know without necessarily being members
of the order and Cardinal Martlnelll
himself Is understood to have read and
revised the fourth or memorial degree
of the order At any rate it Is a well
known fact that Cardinal Martlnelll is a
stanch friend of the order and takes
great pleasure In attending its religious
It is stated that the Knights ot Colnm
bus is not regarded as a secret society
In that Interpretation of the term which
brings secret societies under the baa ot
theChjrch Every Knight Is obliged to
inform his confessor of the ritual and
working of the order
Father Hannan pastor ot St Anthonys
Church Brookland Is State chaplain ot
the order of the Knights of Columbu3 in
this jurisdiction and was tho first priest
south of Philadelphia to become a Knight
of tho order lib is very enthusiastic with
respect to the prospects of tho Knights of
Columbus In this country and even in
other lands especially Ireland Father
Hannan Is thoroughly familiar with the
status and history of the order
When shown the article appearing in
The Times announcing the action taken
by the Bishop of Belleville against
the order Father Hannan smiled He re
marked that most ot the gentlemen quot
ed knew as much about the Knights of
Columbus as the average Catholic knew
about Free Masonry
The comment of Dean McClancy of
New York to the effect that billy goat
chivalry was unworthy of decent men
was shown to Father Hannan who said
that he did not care to express an opin
ion about billy goats in the Knights of
Columbus and added that he had never
heard of Dean McClancy
Father Hannan Is the only priest who
represented tho Archdiocese of Baltimore
at the recent consecration ot Bishop Mul
doon at Chicago on Thursday last
There were present SCO priests said
Father Hannan many of them Knights
or Columbus- Bishop MuMoon is himself
a Knight of the order and if he should
become Archbishop or Chicago Bishop
Janssen of Belleville would be his sub
ordinate and appeals from Bishop Jans
sen concerning the Knights of Columbus
would go to Bishop Muldoon Sunday
evening last in Chicago the Knights of
Columbus tendered Bishop Mutdoon a
magnificent reception
The new Bishop ot Portland Me the
Right Rev R R O Conneil whd -was at
the bead of the American College In Rome
for years was a very enthusiastic Knight
before leaving Boston for Rome- Tha
first thipg orf returning to his see at Port
land the Bishop -renewed his allegiance
to the Knights Bishop OConnell was
the Popes personal choice for the dio
cese of Portland la itself a very re
markable thing
And the fact that these two brilliant
and young ecclesiastics the most recent
appointments to bishoprics in this coun
try both of whom were classmates and
warm personal friends of mine at the
very seminary where Father McGlvney
the founder of the order was educated
and ordained are very enthusiastic
Knights and are doing everything in
their power to propagate the Knights ot
Columbus in New England and the
West Is the best answer that can be
made to the Bishop of Bellevilles mani
Father Hannan was told about the man
ifesto while at Bishop Mnldcons conse
cration He said it was the opinion of the
priests at the consecration that the Bishop
of Belleville would very soon change his
stand In the matter
Father Hannan suggests that the
Bishop of Belleville can see the ritu
al of the order If he cares to Fathor
Hannan Is authority for the statement
that that part of the rvtual which pertains
to the memorial services was prepared at
the Catholic university by a priest of
national Tepute and submitted to Cardinal
Martlnelll as the representative of the
Pope- Father Hannan further states that
the Cardinal expressed himself as much
pleased and considered it very beautiful
and absolutely unobjectionable In fact
