A committee of the ladies of Divi
sion No. 3 have made complete ar
rangements for an entertainment in.
honor of the homecoming men of the
national service for Friday evening.
Feb. 7. There will be dancing of the
old and new styles in separate halls,
both of which will be open to all
guests. On this occasion perhaps the
old time dances will be the leading
feature, but there will be ample pro
vision made too, for the latest devel
opments of the terpsichorean art'.
Young and those not so young may
disport themselves in the styles they
prefer. There will be many other en
tertaining social features in addition
to the dancing bill, the ladies prom
ise. The hall which is at the corner
of Plymouth Avenue and Third Street,
North, is quite likely to be taxed to
its capacity for the occasion, as Divi
sion No. 3 is noted for the excellence
of its social functions. The commit
tee in charge includes, Miss Mary Be
vans, Miss Elizabeth McGrath, Miss M.
Lally, Miss Ella Ryan, and Miss Annie
Egan, with a large corps of assis

A. O. I-J., conducted a joint installa

at Hibernian Halls, St. Paul, on Mon
day evening, Jan. 19, with a large at

State President, Mrs. Mary B. Da

monies, which were carried out im
pressively. The divisions whose offi
cers were installed included Nos. 1, 7,
8 and 12. A well-trained degree team
assisted the installing officer in the
several parts of the ritual, all showing
a creditable mastery of the different
roles. After a short address by Mrs
Daley, in which she spoke words of
encouragement and counsel to the new
officers, the exercises were turned
over to the entertainment features, in
cluding an enjoyable dance. Mrs. Da
ley was the recipient of a handsome
bouquet from the board in appreciation
of her help and co-operation.
Mrs. Anna K. Bryant, President of
the Hennepin County Board, with the
staff of board officers, attended the in

the ordinary definition of co-operation,
"working together for the common
good," he called attention to the fact
that "together" is usuailly stressed
rather than "working," Mr. McMah

with one's self, one's parents, the

London, Jan. 2, l!lf).
An announcement has been made
that the Czecho-Slavs republican gov
ernment is now definitely constituted.
The ministry is composed of members
of all parties, and constitutes a rep
resentative national government. The
newly formed cabinet contains among
its members three Liberals, M. M.
Kramarcz, president of the council,
Rasin and Stransky. Three of the
members are agrarians, M. Stanek, M.
Prasek and M. Zahradnilc.
The last named is, perhaps, one of
the most strenuous and important
members of the cabinet. M. Zahrad
nik, who is a Catholic priest, and Ab
bot of the Premonstratensian order,
while his country was under the dom
ination of the Hapsburg monarchy
carried on a most vigorous and spir
ited campaign for the independence of
the Czechs, and he has lived to see
his life work crowned with complete
Finally, the new Czecho-Slovak cab
inet has among its members the leader
of the Catholic party, M. Hruban.
At a conference of the South Slav
Catholic Bishops, held recently at
Agram, the members of the episcopate
passed a resolution conveying their
the Catholic Church and settle all
questions that affect the Catholic re
ligion in agreement with the Holy See.
The Bishops acknowledge the ne
cessity of a reform of the existing land
proprietorship in favor of the poorer
peasants, and as a sincerity in this
regard, they announce that they are
willing to relinquish^ Church lands
that hitherto have been considered to
be inalienable.
The Bishops further assert that they
intend to preserve a state of concord
and harmony with all recognized re
ligious bodies, in particular with the
members of the Orthodox Church.
It is proposed that an appeal shall
be addressed to the Holy See request
ing that Catholic worship may be con
ducted in the Slav language. Accord
ing to this plan, the clergy would be
permitted to celebrate Mass in Old
Slovak, while the other services of the
Church be conducted in New Slovak.
This project has been a matter of
debate for some years past, and the
matter will be properly presented to
the Holy See through the ordinary
channels for a request of this nature.

envoy from His Holiness Pope Bene

est prelate in the Vatican service of
the Church who has ever visited the
United States. He was accompanied,
as secretary, by the Rev. Dr. Roderick
of Washington, D. C., who has been
engaged in Rome upon the enormous
task of unifying the catechetical texts.
Archbishop Cerretti was met by
Bishop Patrick J. Hayes, D. D., Msgrs.

and Vicars General Gherardo Ferrante,
John J. Dunn and Thomas Carroll.

pier were Justice Victor J. Dowling

the port, escorted the committee on

Before leaving the ship the Arch
bishop celebrated Mass in the drawing
room on the upper promenade deck
which was attended by a number of
the passengers. It was the second
celebration of the Holy Sacrifice since
the liner left Brest on Jan. 10.
Message From the Pope.
When he received the reporters the
Archbishop reminded them that he had
been in America from 1902 to 1911 as
Papal Nuncio at Washington, and
therefore felt that he was visiting
friends and not coming to a strange
country. He alluded to the bright sun
shine, which they saw for the first
time since leaving France, and said
that he was glad to be here once again.
In a statement which he had prepared
before arrival in port, Archbishop Cer
retti said:
"I am happy indeed to be back again
in America. It is like coming home.
Here in this country I spent some of
the happiest years of my life. I am
especially glad to be here because my
mission brings me to my much vener
ated friend, Cardinal Gibbons. I
have come to represent the person of
the Holy Father at the celebration of
his Golden Episcopal Jubilee. Before
leaving Rome I asked the Holy Father
what' I should say to the Americans
for him.
'Tell them,' he said, 'that 1 love
and admire them. Tell them that I
love their ardor and their spirit. Tell
them that I am in full accord with
their noble ideals and their high prin
ciples of freedom and justice.'
"In Paris I had the pleasure of meet
ing President Wilson. He was very
kind and simple in his manner. As
the European press said, it was a his
toric day when the head of the great
American republic met the head of
that old democratic institution found
ed by Christ nineteen centuries ago.
America is looked upon today as the
hope of the world. May God bless and
prosper this good people."
Archbishop Cerretti added that he
would have no other statement to
make concerning church matters be
fore meeting and conferring with the
ecclesiastical authorities of America.
He was grieved and shocked, he said
to learn of the death recently of
'U! 'ial known here and at Rome.
Archbishop Cerretti drove from Pier
61, North River, to the Archbishop's
Madison avenue, where rooms
had been prepared for him and where
a photograph was taken (which ap
pears in the adjoining column).
Archbishop Cerretti was commis
sioned several months ago by His
left Rome then on that mission. It had
been intended, too, that he should
have an interview with President Wil
son. When word reached Europe that
our President intended to attend the
peace conference in person, Msgr. Cer
retti waited in Paris for the coming
of the President, and upon the latter's
arrival had an interview with him.
Subsequently Msgr. Cerretti visited
England, from which he sailed for the
United States.
May Announce Successor of Cardinal
New York, Jan. 19.—Archbishop
Cerretti's mission to the United States
has been a matter of speculation since
announcement' of his proposed visit
was made last fall and it is said he is
clothed with extraordinary authority
from the Vatican. He is the highest
Vatican official ever to visit the
United States. Before embarking for
America, the Archbishop conferred
with President Wilson in Paris. In
terest in the visit is increased by the
belief that he brings with him the
official announcement of the Pope's
selection for a successor to the late
Cardinal Farley as Archbishop of New

—Report of Sick Fund.
A prominent feature of the regular
monthly meeting of Division No. 4,
A. O. H. of St. Paul held on Monday
evening, January 27, was a protest
adopted against the Smith bill now
introduced in Congress for the Feder
alization of all the schools, of the
country. Since all Catholic parochial
schools may be included within the
scope of this measure it has aroused
opposition among Catholics in all parts
of the country. The proposed bill
was discussed at some length at the
meeting, and it was finally decided to
send a, telegram to the national A. O.
11. officers urging them to a determined
effort to defeat, the bill. The unani
mous sentiment expressed was that
such a departure from the present
American educational system would
constitute an invasion of the religious
freedom afforded to all citizens under
the national constitution. Over two
hundred members were in attendance.
Officers Installed.
The following staff of officers was
installed for the current year, with
the usual ceremonies of the order:
President, P. J. Byrne.
Vice President, Thomas Redmond.
Rec. Secretary, Thomas Donahue.
Fin. Secretary, J. W. Muivennan.
Insurance Secretary, E. Corcoran.
Sergeant at Arms, Thomas Malony.
Sentinel, P. H. McCartney.
Chaplain, Rev. J. C. Cassidy.
Marshal, Dr. J. D. O'Brien.
Other Business.
The attention of the Division being
drawn to the fact that 46 of its mem
bers who have been in the national
service will soon be back home, a
committee was appointed to arrange
a suitable reception in their honor.
Announcement of the particulars of
the plan to be carried out will be made
in the near future.
The financial officers reported a
surplus of $2,200.00 In the Sick Bene
fit Fund, $1,600 of which is invested
in Liberty bonds and War Savings
Stamps. This was considered a re
markably good showing in view of the
fact that the influenza epidemic had
been so widely prevalent.
Six new members were initiated at
the meeting and eight new applications
for membership were received and re
ferred to the committee.
To Run From Fair Head to The Mull
of Kintyre in Scotland, 14
Would Facilitate Transportation of
Irish Butter, Fish and Other Com
modities to the Extent of
2/z Hours.
London, England, January 18.—Con
struction of a tunnel between Great
Britain and Ireland is up again.
With war restrictions gone, propo
nents of this plan see no reason for
its delay. They point to the need of
Irish butter, fish and linen arriving
in England without the necessity of
breaking bulk on the journey.
The main value of such a tunnel
would lie in bringing the Irish and
British people into far closer contact
than the present, politically as well as
Distance 14 Miles.
During the last 25 years four engi
neering schemes have been worked
out, but none attempted. The short
est of the routes so far proposed is
one from the southernmost point of
the Mull of Kintyre ,to a point on the
Irish coast a little to the southeast
of the Fair Head, a distance of 14
miles, under a seabed of uniform level
80 fathoms under water.
The great objection to this route is
that it would involve the construction
of more than a hundred miles of rail
way in Scotland to join the existing
system and a shorter railway to link
up Irish lines.
Saving In Time.
Naturally, since these plans were
proposed, cost of labor and material
has gone up, and the original esti
mates have gone by the board. How
ever, the war has taught men to think
in millions, and, if the necessity of
such a tunnel were proven, money
would not be an object.
A saving of two and a half hours
could be made in a journey from Bel
fast to London throughout such a tun
nel, and it would, furthermore, mean
a reduction of many hundreds of miles
between London and New York.
For distribution by the Knights of
Columbus secretaries to returning sol
diers on transports the Knights have

Father John's
Its Value
For more than half a century Father
John's Medicine has proved its value
as a pure and wholesome body-build
ing tonic. Those who prove its value
by using it in their homes always tell
others of its merit. This great army
of people who use Father John's Medi
cine is constantly growing in numbers
and the medicine has passed on from
one generation to another as the
standard, safe family medicine to be
used when any member of the family
becomes weak or run-down or is at
tacked by a cold or cough. The great
food value of Father John's Medicine
makes it especially good for those who
are thin, pale and weak. It. builds new
flesh and strength without, using alco
hol or dangerous drugs in any form.
