NOT INTERESTED IN THEOLOGY.
A noted person having said recently,
"I am very little interested in dog
matic theology, but very much inter
ested in its practical application,"
The Chicago Standard (Baptist), with
a commendable dislike of such vague
ness, replies:
One might as well say: "I am not
interested in gravity, tint am much
interested in its practical application
to the lifting of blocks of stone, for I
am a builder." No one can be a
builder without being interested in
"dogmatic gravity." His practical ap
plication of its laws depends upon a
knowledge of what they are ..
A dogma is merely a clear-cut expres
sion of a truth. Those that want
truth left at loose ends, so that they
can palm off as truth their whim of
the movement, hate dogma but the
sincere truth-lover loves dogma of
necessity. Dogmatic theology is sifn
ply scientific theology, theology with
no guesswork about it.
LESSONS OF THE WAR.
The war is teaching many lessons.
Among others it is impressing on the
honest observer what the Catholic
Church has done to instruct her chil
dren and prepare them for the crises
of life. "A Chaplain at the Front,"
writing to the Church Times, (An
glican) gives a frank account of what
he noted personally. He says with
conviction
The almost entire ignorance of the
average soldier of the elements of re
ligion, the paucity of confirmed men
or regular communicants is simply ap
palling. A Roman Catholic soldier
knows at once what to do—he asks
for a Rosary to help him say his
prayers he asks you to get him a
priest he wants his Communion or to
make his confession. He knows the
Gospel of Christ he. understands
about repentance, about grace, about
the presence of the unseen army of
—The missions in the Philippine Is
lands have at last received a gift that
will go far toward setting many of
them on a good solid basis. The check
brought great joy into the offices of
the Catholic Church Extension Society,
and the size of it would bring joy to
most any missionary enterprise. It
was for $12,000.00 and especially stip
ulated that it go to the Philippine mis
sionaries. The sad plight of these
brave priests in the Islands has long
been a source of worry to the officials
of the Society. The missionaries
•write in and tell the most pitiful tales
of their hardships, almost unbelievable
tales. One bishop told us of a priest
who was starving to death, and an
other priest told us that the years of
exposure to the tropical rains would
kill him if he did not soon have a roof
to cover him. Still another wrote that
his people were starving. He did not
mention about himself. Like other
priests there, proper nourishment was
unknown to him. And these are but
a few. Father Juergins, who is work
ing among the non-Christian tribes,
who in fact has established a flourish
ing mission there, recently wrote in
to the Society that unless help would
be forthcoming his missions would
have to be disbanded. And these men
and hundreds of others who are labor
ing on the Philippine mission with
little for today and only hopes for the
morrow have literally been storming
heaven with prayers that help would
come to them, and, Providence tried
them, but answered at last. The man
who gave this vast sum for the Philip
pine missions surely had at heart the
honor and glory of God, for parting
with money is a pretty good proof of
Faith. A few weeks before he sent
the Society this magnificent sum he
mailed in another check for $1,000.
That sum was for the missions of
Bishop O'Doherty of the Philippine
Islands, whom he heard speak about
his missions in the East a few years
ago. The man is an easterner. He
has made a place for himself forever
in the annals of the Church in the
Islands. At a* time when money is
needed with a terrific need to offset
the proselytizing influences of Protes
tantism in the Islands he has come
forward and done much toward main
jtaining the missions of those Islands.
The same day that the $12,000.00
check came in another pleasant sur
prise arrived. It was not a check for
as thousand nor even a hundred dol
lars. It was the gift of a chalice—
paten and case—from a blind young
man of twenty-three years. He is a
poor young man—without the means
of earning a livelihood for himself, and
yet out of his weekly allowance dur
ing Lent he saved the money to make
this gift to the poor missions. Is it
any wonder that God blesses the ef
forts of the Society, when there are
those who make such noble sacrifices
in behalf of the missions? We only
•tiave a few words about him, but we
are going to tell them to you that
every one reading this will say a little
|rayer for him. Our correspondent
'Writes: "He is a daily communicant
of an exceptionally saintly character,
He begs of you that you will say a

saints and angels. Our poor Tommy,
not from any fault of his o\^n, but
from our neglect, is quite unconscious
of most of this as a reality. Some one
wrote to me, the -other day, these
words: "This war should make a dif
ferent manhood for the Church of the
future. Men can not live by the
French churches for nothing. Their
eyes must be opened." My friend
meant that this great company of An
glicans—soldiers, orderlies, doctors,
nurses, chaplains, etc.,—living in a
Catholic country day by day, feeling a
need for religion, as they must, in the
midst of such a critical experience,
will ask themselves "Does Anglican
ism give us what these Catholic Allies
of ours find in their religion?" Here
we have churches crammed day by
day with Roman Catholics doing just
the same work we are doing. They
find time to pray to make their con
fessions and Communions. Why do
not we? Why do not we want these
things?
PREACHING IN NON-CATHOLIC
COLLEGE8.
With regard to the preaching in the
non-Catholic colleges, President Fitch
of the Andover Theological Seminary
(Congregationalist) has this to say in
The Harvard Graduate Magazine:
"We need, both in the daily and the
Sunday services, a more authoritative
and comprehensve interpretation fcf
religion. There is, indeed, I believe, a
growing satisfaction with the present
type of college preaching. It is ad
dressed largely to boys rather than
men. It is narrow in the range of
human thought with which it deals
being either vaguely mystical and in
spirational, or else being wholly con
fined to the ethical, the practical and
the immediate. It needs to be lifted
to a higher and more serious level
One of the reasons why we are losing
some of the best boys out of our
chapels is because we are not minis
tering sufficiently to their minds."

may receive his sight—if it would so
please the good God." Reader, say
the prayer he asks of you.
On the list of the applicants for
church goods there are many priests
calling for monstrances. Few mon
strances come in. One may be pur
chased for $20. Do you want to send
one to a poor missionary? Donations
may be sent to the Catholic Chureh
Extension Society, whose offices are

CONDITIONS IN MACEDONIA.
From Bishop Scianow, "Vicar Apos
tolic of the Bulgarian Catholics of
Macedonia, Greece, comes a letter de
scribing the condition of these poor
people. There seems to be little peace
for our Armenian and Bulgarian
brothers in the Faith wherever they
may set their feet the Greeks, from
this account, are treating them as
badly as the Turks:
"I have been very much occupied
with our Bulgarians, who find them
selves obliged to emigrate, on account
of the tyrannical rule of the Greeks
who make their situation insupport
able. It was heart-rending to see these
poor creatures, God's children, robbed
and despoiled of ^everything, and at
last obliged to leave their houses and
lands and seek elsewhere liberty, and
the right to live as men and not as
slaves.
"The secular hatred nourished by
Greeks against Bulgarians Inspired the
authorities to place a thousand diffi
culties in the way of their departure
"As to the Catholics who, in spite of
all the difficulties and the painful situ
ation in which they found themselves,
had decided to stay in Greek territory
the Greeks seized their schools and
churches, drove away the priests by
force of arms, and then forced the
population to submit to the schismatic
Greek patriarch.
"Meanwhile all this takes place be
fore the eyes of the European consuls
in the 20th century of light and civili
zation which should give to all peoples
social and individual liberty. Unhap
pily we see, on the contrary, the re
turn of a baiTSarism and tyranny more
terrible than in the times of Nero.
"I am more than ever convinced
that from unbelievers, infidels and sec
tarians we can expect nothing but
evil."
SEMINARIANS TEST VOCATIONS
The Assumptionists of Turkey in
Europe have suffered much at the
hands of the Turks. They had scarcely
passed through the painful experiences
of the recent Balkan conflict, when
once more the Turks are at war, and
all religious work is again made im
possible. The priests and nuns are
scattered wherever they can find
shelter.
Father Leandre, A. A., is now at
Athens. He had left France and was
hoping to regain Gallipoli, but was
obliged to remain in Greece. Some of
the most advanced seminarians are
with him, and having set up thebr
abode in a house given them by the
Archbishop of Athens, they are trying
to resume their religious life and
studies. The greatest economies are

cooking is done by the little commu
nity the latter does not require much
skill as often there is nothing hut a
few herbs to cook, while the supply of
bread is nearly gone with no hope of
renewing it.
The seminarians have a great oppor
tunity to learn the art of mortifica
tion and have indeed expressed them
selves ready for any sacrifice in order
to save their vocation.
VOLCANIC ERUPTION IN
OCEAN IGA.
The Island of New Hebrides have
also had some terrible volcanic erup
tions. Father Caillon, a Marist mis
sionary, tells of the havoc that lias
been wrought in the island of Ambrym.
There much loss of life and devasta
tion to homes were caused by the
latest eruption, and the three mis
sions of the district are constantly
menaced by new craters which have
been opened.
The principal one, which dominates
the whole island, continues to pour
forth torrents of smoke and cinders,
and at times, the blackness of night
prevails.
The mission at Craig-Cove has been
abandoned, but the Christians of Sesivi
are so attached to their native soil,
that they have returned to it, after a
hasty flight to other shores, and estab
lished themselves two miles from the
newly-formed crater, where they are
still in great danger.
Notwithstanding the seeming reck
lessness of this act, Father Caillon has
followed the Christians, as it is his
duty to watch over the souls that have
been entrusted to his care* regardless
of personal peril.
STENOGRAPHERS' CHAPEL FUND
GROWS.
The idea of letting the Catholic ste
nographers of the country build a cha
pel in some poor missionary priest's
station seems to have taken hold upon
the stenographers in many places in
America, and contributions have come
in even from Canada. The thought
caAe from the brain of a Boston ste
nographer. She sent in her dollar "to
start the ball a-rolling," as she said
she also suggested that the chapel be
called The Chapel of Jesus and Mary.
The other day a New York stenogra
pher sent in $25 with the suggestion
that the chapel be called The Chapel
of the Blessed Virgin and other more
modest donations though welcome
gifts are daily received.
The fund, though only a few weeks
old, is creeping up to the $100 mark
When $500 is reached it will be used
for the building of a missionary chapel
Of course donations are not limited to
stenographer's gifts. Others may send
in to their contribution chapel fund if
they desire. Donations may be sent to
the Catholic Church Extension Society
McCormick Building, Chicago.
MY NEW CONVERT
One nigttt, while returning from a
visit to my mission at Oakwood, I
was hailed by a tall, distinguished in
dividual, in the following manner:
"Say, are you a Catholic priest?"
replied that I had the honor to be such
and awaited further interrogatives
from my distinguished, hut uncertain
friend. "Well," he said, "I am not a
Catholic, and I hope to goodness I
never will be one. But, say, I like
you priests, though I do hate your be
lief in many ways. There is one thing
about you you are not afraid to talk
and you generally happen to know
how to talk."
I was glad to hear this compliment,
though I felt that he might meet a
setback in his humble servant.
"DO you know," he continued, "that
there is a number of your people up
this way who work in the mines, and
who never go to Church? yes, there
are Irish, Dutch, Poles, and a few
other nationalities."
'Well," I replied, "I have not been
coming here very long, and as yet,
have not had an opportiftiity to meet
all my congregation but be sure I am
grateful to you for the information.
Would you kindly give ine your name?'
I am Father Watson."
"Well, I am plain John Pine, and
they call me the lawyer of this coun
ty. I don't belong to any church at
present, but I have been a Methodist,
Presbyterian, Baptist, and have had a
taste of a few other sects but I have
come to the conclusion I am as good
as some of them, and better than most
of them. The Lord will teach me with
out their assistance. But I must ad
mit there is one thing I admire you
Catholics for, and that is the way you
respect the Virgin Mary as the Mother
of God. I can see clearly why she
should be honored, since it was she
who gave birth to the Son of GOd,
our Redeemer, and as His Mother, is
worthy of honor due her from His fol
lowers. My last visit to church was
about six months ago. I was then a
Methodist at least I thought I was
until one night a preacher got up, and
used the vilest and most scandalous
language about the Virgin Mary.
"Well, I always felt a love for Mary
and I would be a queer fellow if I did
not love and respect the Mother of my
Redeemer. How could I love Him if
I did not have some regard for His
Mother? I waited till that preacher
got through with language not fit for
use in the toughest society. Then I
arose and asked permission to say a
few words. The congregation looked
a little puzzled to see John Pine arise,
and no doubt wondered What he would
have to say. Well, I turned square
at that preacher, and said to him:
'See here, my man, you know every
word you say is a lie and if the same
words you have just said about the
Virgin Mary were uttered by you
about my mother, I would shoot you
dead on the spot. You think you can
gull people by your vile harangue
which you know to be false. But I
know a few things about the Catholic
worship of tne Virgin, and I know she
was the Mother of the purest of Men.
For that reason she must necessarily
have been the purest of women, and I
know you lie when you speak as you
go. N§w, my friegds, from tWg night

I cease to be a Methodist, or any other
branch of your tribe, and shall seek the
trut| for myself hereafter. That
preacher attempted to explain to me
his language, but my ire was up, and
he thought it best to leave me alone.
I was thenceforth numbered among
the lost sheep. So you see. Father—
what's your name?" y. $.***
"Watson," I replied,
"Yes, you see, Father, I am out of
all churches for good and for all for
I know now my light shall come from
,the Holy Spirit. He shall teach me
'here in the quiet of my walks, and
In my chamber. But I am not a bigot,
and I believe in every man following
the dictates of. his own conscience.
For that reason I want to see those
of your people down at the mines
have their priest. You won't do them
any harm aha you may do th&ta some
good."
I thanked my friend most graciously,
apd promised that as soon as I could
do so I would arrange to have g, place
in which to say Mass.
Well, as I am interested in the
mines, and go down there to-morrow,
I will tell your people. But when
shall they expect you?"
"As soon as I can secure a place
large enough," I said. For as I had
first started the Oakwood mission, I
had but a small room in a private
house where I could say Mass, and
this place was over a mile from the
mines.
"Would you say your Mass in my
house?" my friend inquired.
This was too sudden, and I almost
lost my breath. This invitation was
from one who had no use for religious
form or ceremony in general, and the
Catholic form in particular. "I should
be glad, Mr. Pine, to accept your kind
invitation, and shall come out on Tues
day next," I replied.
"Well, come then, and you may be
certain I'll not bother your Mass, nor
shall any of my family. Come and
stay at my house over night if you
care to, and I will gather all your peo
ple and have them ready on Tuesday
morning about half past five or six."
"Yes," I said, "and tell them I shall
hear confessions of any vho care to
come."
"Well, you won't have me among
them," was the parting shot from my
newly found apostle, though a peculiar
one, I must confess. We bade each
other good evening, and I boarded the
train for my house at Hampton.
John Pine was the subject of my
thoughts all that night, and the next
day. I saw in him, honesty and sin
cerity. I knew he was one of those
whom God's grace would not leave un
aided. He was peculiarly brusque
but that trait I love to find in a man.
Better a thousand times than the char
acter too languid to think. He could
quote Scripture, verse after yerse.
His respect for the Bible was char
acteristic of the entire man. He had
tried every sort of so-called reformed
religions, but found no rest in any of
them. I saw a restless soul seeking
for truth, and knew that soul would
assert itself. And, above all, I saw
in him a true child of Mary. But I
resolved that John Pine should first
introduce the subject of religion. He
kindly gave me "the1 iise of his house
for my people beyond that I could not,
nor would not go. The spirit that
breathed over the waters would
breathe on the soul of John Pine and
the Mother of Mercy would plead for
a child who honored her as did this
one among those who dared to de
throne her. For him I prayed often
that the Light.ofHhe world might
beam on him, and teach him the way
and the truth.
The following week I went to Oak
wood, and stayed over night at the
house of my friend. We talked Scrip
ture, religions and many things of a
like nature, my friend, Mr. Pine, al
ways taking the initiative, for I was
determined to keep to my resolution,
not to introduce religion as a topic
of conversation. We both discussed
Scriptural texts, he agreeing with me
in the interpretation of some, and
differing in others.
However, my first evening was very
pleasantly spent, and the hospitality
with Which I was received made me
feel quite at home. The next morning
when I awoke, and had prepared for
Mass, I was delighted to find in the
parlor, besides my regular congrega
tion, about thirty men, their wives,
and a few of the older children. Here,
indeed, were many nations, though
one ignorarit of the language of the
other, about to worship at the same
altar, about to adore the same God.
There ware Irish, Germans, Poles,
Slavs, and a few French but they
had the sign, the pass word of Christ's
flock—the sign of the cross. My friend
had the two parlors of his house con
verted into a charming little chapel,
capable of holding about fifty o(r more
people. A temporary altar was ar
ranged, and immaculate linens sup
plied for the service. Not a member
of the Pine family did I see. True to
his word, Mr. Pine thought they would
annoy me. If he but knew the joy it
A S s a
Of course, I *was profuse in my ap
preciation of his kindness, and talked
with him until my train arrived.
I resolved to make a tour out to
Oakwood once in every ten days, and
this resolve I kept. As my visits in
creased my friend and myself became
more and more familiar. We dis
cussed the prominent events of both
hemispheres, the various people in
public life, etc. But my friend, being
of an inquiring, religious turn of mind,
would invariably return to the subject
of religion. Many subjects of Catholic
dogma he would ask to have explained,
many practices of the Church which
seemed strange, he wished to under
stand, and all these I set before him
as clearly as possible. But his old
spirit of self-reliance and self-guidance
clung to him. Were he once convinced
John Pine would not hesitate a mo
ment in accepting the teachings of the
Catholic Church. After my fourth or
fifth visit I noticed his wife and daugh
ter among my congregation. She was
as noble a woman as he was a man.
She came to me one morning after
Mass, and asked to be instructed.
She had her husband's consent, land
I gladly granted her request. Within
three months Mrs. Pine became a Cath
olic, and she told me the day of her
baptism was the happiest of her life.
Soon Mr. Pine himself came to me,
and asked that I recommend some con
vent to which he might send his daugh
ter. I advised him to send her to
Brentwood.
The girl became a student of the
good Sisters, and their life and ex
ample led her to follow in the foot
steps of her mother. Coming to her
father one day, she said, "Papa, will
you allow me to become a Catholic?"
And he in his honest way replied
"Well, yes, my girl, if you think you
are doing right, I have no objection."
No more questioning, nothing but
his consent. If he could only see the
light, and follow it! Their youngest
boy they sent to Nazareth. He, too,
asked permission from his father, and
was received into the Church. After
I had been going to Oakwood for about
six months he introduced the subject
of inspiration, and endeavored to
prove that he was guided by the Holy
Spirit in his idea of religion, that he
knew he was right, and the Holy
Spirit guided him.
"Well," I said, "Mr. Pine, both of us
cannot be right. I know that I have
the true teachings of Christ, and I
know the Church I belong to is alone
the Church of Christ. Now I base my
proof on the earliest authorities, they
are my guides. And when I have a
difficulty with any passage of Scrip
ture, and may have two ideas equally
valuable in my estimation, and know
not which to hold, I go back to my au
thorities, the Apostles and the early
Fathers. I go back to the time before
the Bible was in existence, and find
what tradition gives me on the sub
ject. There I can find a solution of my
difficulty. You have the Bible, but you
have no authority to guide you in your
reading of it except your own self. A
thousand like you, without any author
ity but their own, can make the same
cl^im, yet have a different interpre
tation of the Bible text. Now, as a
lawyer, Mr. Pine, you do not rely on
your own interpretation of the law.
Did you not, as a young man, and do
you not go back to some of the early
authorities on law to sustain your
view in any difficult matter? Suppose
two of you had a dispute on some
legal point. Your opponent had no
authority you had. Whose argument
would be the stronger? Yours, of'
course, because you had authority to
sustain you. So with the Scriptures
the Church of Christ is the interpreter,
the guide, which Protestantism tried
to destroy that the ignorant, and those
poorly educated, and in fact, her entire
following, might take these

I heard many confessions before
Mass. My knowledge of German and

Well, I said Mass there that morning,
