@£_3r^|1, ANOTHER PROTESTANT TRIBUTE. Sir Robert Hart, a Protestant writer, says of our apostles in China: "The Roman Catholic missionaries have done a great work both in spreading the knowledge of one God and one Saviour, and more especially in their self-sacrifice in the cause of deserted children and afflicted adults. Their organization as a society is far ahead of any other, and they are sec ond to none in zeal and self-sacrifice personally. One strong point in their arrangement is in the fact that theie is never a break in continuity, while there is perfect unity in teaching and practice and practical sympathy with their people in both the life of this world and the preparation for eternity. The Roman Catholics were the first in the field they are the most widely spread and they have the largest num ber of followers, "That the Chinese converts do not deserve the nick-name of 'Rice Clu is tians' Is proved by the religious zeal of the well-instructed neophytes, their moral conduct, their fidelity during the times of persecution, the large number of daily communicants, and by the substantial help they con tribute according to iheir means toward the building nf churches, schools and hospitals." REPOSE IN CATHOLIC CHURCH. in i' v. A benediction outfit consists pf a monstrance that costs $25, a benedic tion cope that costs $18, a veil for benediction costing $10, ajid a censer and boat which will cost $7. For a gift of $G0 a benediction outfit will be sent to this missionary. If you cannot send the entire amount, probably you would like to defray the expense of one of the arti cles needed for benediction. Do not delay sending what you can. Any do nation will be gratefully received by the Catholic Church Extension So ciety, 7t0 McCormick Bldg., Chicago, Illinois, and promptly acknowledged ALAS, THE POOR HINDU. TRIBUTES^ i aning tVnture of the Catholic Church is the repose which its numerous institutions offer to the weary, the broken heart. Protestant ism has no cloisters—no places of holy retreat, to which a man broken with the labors of life, or with private grief, or sick of the selfishness of the world, can retire to pass his days in devotion, and in communion with the wise and good of other days, or in the labors in charity and merry. "To an old man—if without chil dren, or if they are dead, or his lot is hard, or his life unhappy—I can con ceive of nothing more grateful than such a retreat as he approaches the evening of life. There the seductions or the treachery of the world cannot PATIENTLY WAITING. Two years ago the Catholic Church Extension Society received a letter from a missionary in South Dakota in which he said he was sorely in need of a benediction outfit. For two years the Extension Society has tried to secure the desired outfit for this mis sionary, but without success. You can judge from this the great number of requisitions there are on file for benediction outfits, since the society tries to fill the requests as they come in. For two years the people of this mission in South Dakota have not wit nessed benediction of the Blessed Sac rament. Will they have to wait two years more? From Bengal, India, Fr. J. J. Hen nessy sends a picture of life as he sees it among the poor Hindus. "Our Catholics are the poorest of the poor. The converts come from the lowest strata of Hindu society. I gave the last Sacraments not long ago to a sick man, at a place about thirty-six miles from here. To get to him I had to go through mud and v/ater. His house consisted of four posts in the water some bamboo sticks were placed crosswise to sup port a few torn blankets. For over head covering he had such a little platform as a fisherman might erect near a running stream to keep off the sun's rays. I had to stand in the mud alongside his 'home.' There was no question of using lights, as the wind was blowing. I had to hold the pix, etc., in my hand lest they would fall through the platform into the water beneath. After doing what I could for him spiritually, I gave him some temporal assistance, bestowing upon him all I had—sixteen cents." UNEASINESS IN JAPAN. iBishop Combaz, P. F. M., of the Nagasaki diocese, sees dark days ahead for the Catholic missionaries in Japan. Not only is poverty re ducing every branch of endeavor, and threatening even to do away with the valuable catechists, because their ralarles are not forthcoming, but an other equally serious obstacle is be ing placed in the apostolic path. XV, ..A. iVHO ARE WITHOUT. E:. The Japanese government seems determined to insist on the cult of the Emperor and of the ancestors. This Is a distinct menace to the practice of Christianity. Veiled, at first in its forms, the cult of ancestors implies who we now under instruction.. reach him. He is secluded from its occupations, and heavy, wearying care. Hours of study alternate with the gen tle religious excitement of matins and vespers. His life has been full of sor row, and now he finds a soothing re pose in the monastery which creates a solitude in the heart of a city—the stillness of its paved court broken only by the murmur of a fountain, and its long corridors echoing only to the foot fall of some passing solitary who has retired from the world. In the lone ly imprisoned cell, the lamp suspend ed from the ceiling lets fall its light on the bald-head of the aged pilgrim bending over the pages of St. Augus tine. "The scrolls that teach him to live and die. In former ages, monastic in stitutions had a high literary utility. Never have I seen a monastery afar on the, top of a mountain, glowing in the sunset, without recognizing grate fully a luminary of the Middle Ages —one of those stations along which the torch of knowledge was transmit ted from summit to summit while the world beneath lay buried in darkness. The importance of these institutions to learning is lessened, now that the sun shines down into the valleys as well as on the hill-tops. But as places of religious seclusion, I cannot but wish that there were some such retreats in Protestant lands, to which a man who has nothing more on earth to live for could retire to calm the fever of his mind, and prepare to go to God. "The Catholic Church deserves also groat, honor for her charitable institu tions. She has erected monasteries in lonely and almost inaccessible places on the top of the Alps and of Mount. Sinai amid perpetual snows and frightful deserts, to extend assistance and relief to lost or helpless travelers. I walked over the Pass of the Simp Ion with an Episcopal clergyman, and I remember well his animated excla mation, as we first caught sight of the Hospice on the t&p of the moun tain: 'There is what the Catholic Church does!' And I confess I could scarce resist any abstract argument better than the Monks of St. Ber nard, or the Sisters ofCharity."—Rev. H. M. Field. MISSION FIELDS. attendance at temples, burning of in cense and other forms impossible to the Catholic. That the school chil dren shall attend the ceremonies is now being demanded. Nagasaki, the largest centre, will be first to resist this mandate, but what will such re sistance mean? This question is causing Bishop Combaz and his co workers much uneasiness. STORY FROM A WHITE SISTEft. The White Sisters of Africa are trying hard to make converts among the Mussulmans. One of 'them writes: "One winter day a. Sister was asked to visit a young woman dying of consumption. "Orphaned at an early age, brought up .by an old aunt whose poverty forced her to seek a home with an avaricious uncle, she married to please relatives. The man soon re pudiated her. "She sank into extreme poverty anf her privations soon brought on the fatal malady we have named. "The Sister evinced the liveliest interest in the poor creature, who, soured by her past, viewed her new friend coldly. '1 do not speak or un derstand French,' she responded as the Sister greeted her. "The former redoubled her atten tions and said sweetly, 'My child, I will speak to you in the Kabylil tongue. Listen, do you know how dear you are to me?' 'Do you really love me? Very well then, I love you also.' 'Yes,' replied the Sister, 'I love you but God loves you still more be cause you have neither father nor mother to help you. If He sends you crosses here below, it is to purify your soul so that you will gain Heaven. He is a good Father. Cast yourself in Ilis arms with confi dence.' i "The heart of the Kabyle woman was won. Her black eyes glowed. "The next day when the Sister came she cried out joyfully, 'I am perfectly resigned, Sister I rest in the arms of God. I trust entirely in Him as you wished me to do.' NEEDS OF A NATIVE PRIEST. Father Joseph Ouang, of Pinghu, China, is a native priest who has done very good work among his own peo ple. He writes in Latin with as much grace as he no doubt writes his own tongue. Sufferfng and need are the same in every language, and the man in the heart of Africa or China knows how to plead as eloquently as the best of us here, when his wants are many and his supplies few. Here is a translation of his letter in which he conveys his message: "The good and holy year will bring us deliverance. You have, assured me that you will help us and God will bless all our benefactors. The European war has affected us very much. We lack $400 for our cate chumenate. In my district we have 2,000 good Catholics and this number will be increased by the 200 converts tsx-safaa- •cxff£jacntat^^^a.''- ."..^fasi .. '"My allocation for the year has b-een lessened, by the Bishop $200. To pay for food, salaries of catechists and the lodging of some of my poor I would need even more than I re ceived from the Bishop, but if he has not the money how, can I expect it'? I am an unknown Chinese priest and without friends in the great land JTV the West, from which all help'titnyv comes for the missions. If I ran onfjf succeed in securing some one who will help me to keep my work frfrni failure until after the European priests come back from the war, I am sure that I can then depend on them.' I can only pray God to re ward them. I can give nothing but my thanks and promise of prayers." SALESIANS IN MADAGASCAR PLAN TO TRAIN NUMEROUS} CATECHISTS. & Rev. F, J. Dautin, M. S:, Prefect Apo&tdlfe of Betafo is planning to have the catechists fill some of the gaps left by absent priests. He writes: "To put up an offensive more ener getic than ever we opened Tast month a school for student catechists. These students have been chosen among our best young folks who have been educated and who are mar ried. They will apply themselves principally to the study of our holy religion so that later they may teach their fellow men, aiding the mission aries in the sublime work of propa gating the Gospel. Their wives also will study the catechism and the first elements of sewing in order to render service to the missions. We have twelve families studying at present in Betafo, and they are completely de pendent on us. Though they live in a very frugal life and have a menu that is seldom varied, yet a sufficient ly important sum is necesary for their upkeep, considering that, our re sources are already small." MISSION NOTES. Fr. A. Desmarais, O. M. I., does not mind distances when seeking soulis in Alberta. A note from him says: have been away in the country Visit ing families and baptizing children, hearing confessions and giving holy Communions. I traveled about two hundred miles last week, to visit fif teen families. I said Mass in th£ private houses. I will leave for home to continue the work of my new church. Some help would be very welcome to enable me to finish the edifice before another winter." HIGH COST OF LIVING IN AFRICA Bishop Biermans, of Uganda, Africa entertained a large group of his priests in May last who came to the main mission to lay in supplies. Prices have advanced on all the goods they need for their work, and the reason for their visit was to lay in a supply much of it on credit before the prices got beyond their means. Calico, which is heeded for clothing the natives was raised $20 on the bale in one month. The Bishop is certain even the necessities of life will reach a pro liibitive figure in a short time. 1 With a five weeks' confirmation tour before him through the interior the Bishop remarks that though the jo\ir ney will be a hard one, the consola tions received from the flourishing Catholic communities are more than a sufficient recompense. He concludes his letter: "You need not ask whether the American mails are anxiously expected by us all. Without the generous as sistance sent by friends that I met while in the United States it is a ques tion what progress could be made." This mission of Uganda is in a spe cial way the product of American thrift and enthusiasm. Twelve years ago the first letter to reach the dio ces^n office came from Mother Mary Paul, who at the time was Superior of the school and hospital work With the consecration of Bishop Bier mans new life was infused into the mission, and to-day it is one of the best equipped centers in Africa. With new enterprises projected for the widening of Catholic influence more money is needed, and a dollar in the hands of the Bishop means a miracle of multiplication. REVOLUTION IN ABYSSINIA. A serious revolution is taking place in the Ethiopian Empire, and aside from its political aspect, it may seri ously affect the work of the mission aries. Abyssinia the ancient Ethiopia boasts a Christianity older than that of Europe. Though divided by schisms from the Church, its natives have of late shown a leaning toward the True Faith and the Catholic mis sionaries have made many converts. The famous King Menelik was staunch supporter of the Christians and upon handing over the throne to his successor, Lidj Yassou, enjoined him under pain of a terrible curse to protect them, as they also were to obey him. But the young ruler had no sooner entered upon his reign than he embraced Islamism and joined the most fanatical bands for the persecu tion of the Christians and for this he was deposed. He is lurking in the1 desert and gathering about him horde of Mussulmans. A DESIRE FOR THE NEW YEAR. His Holiness Pope Benedict XV rec ommends as the intention of the League of the Sacred Heart for Janiv ary "The Fulfilment of the Desires of Jesus." The great desire that filled the Heart of Jesus was to bring all men to salvation, to win their love, and to secure for them eternal happi ness.: For this He offered Himself on the Cross. For this His divine Heart, is yearning, pouring out on us a tide of sweet, tender longing.. Let us keep this intention in mind during all the year aa well as during January. m-wttmnrmw THE CATHOLIC BULLETIN, JANUARY 27, 1917 (Continued from page 2.) THE STORY OF AN ORPHAN. -She had walked up. from the sta tion in' preference to taking a car, she explained as she sank into a chair after depositing box, umbrella and #vaJise on the floor. She was great for. looking lat houses and places as she went al6ttg, and it gave her a chance to compare th©m, too. Her survey had proved to her that her nephew, Bill Read, had as fine a house as any on the street. Imagine the surprise that awaited Mildred and Lucy to find the old lady the_y._had seen on the street sit ting in the parlor when they came in a half hour later. "We're going to have a lovely time with her around," complained Mil dred to her mother, after her first interview with Aunt Phoebe. "She'll keep us busy yelling ourselves hoarse to make her hear. I wish she'd take her umbrella and junk and go home where she belongs." At supper that night Mr. Read asked his aunt if she had ever tried any remedy for her defective hear ing, to which she made answer that she'd tried every cure known, but she'd be blessed if there was any thing that seemed.to help lier pe culiar case. And as Mr. Read shouted, Mildred and Bert laughed and made remarks, all of which Aunt Phoebe heard just as well as anybody at the table. She observed, too, how ladylike and kind Lucy was to her, and how she re frained from laughing and talking like the other two. Neither Mrs. Read nor the chil dren, Lucy excepted, refrained from talking about the old lady in her presence. Once Lucy remonstrated with Mildred for something she said about Aunt Phoebe, and Mildred ex claimed, "O, what's the difference, she's as deaf as a post." "Yes, but she may suspect that you're making fun of her, and it's a shame to hurt her feelings," went on Lucy. And not a word of the conversation, nor indeed of any con versation, was lost on the old lady. 1 She observed, too, that the little orphan was imposed upon and treated with little or no consideration by the household, with the exception of Jamie, who, following Lucy's good example, was very polite and kind to his aunt. "Why don't you let that child go to school same as your own?" An Phoebe asked Mrs. Read one day, as Mildred and Bert started off leaving Lucy at the breakfast dishes. "Well, you know, aunt, I'm quite delicate and really not able to do any work unassisted," said Mrs. Read, not exactly pleased at this outspoken query. "Besides, I don't think that Lucy cares particularly about school Anyway, she'll have plenty of oppor tunity for an education yet. She's still young, you know." '"Humph!" Aunt Phoebe sniffed "You don't seem so awful weak an sickly, Hannah. 'Pears to me you gad about a heap, and keep runnin' to that tliei'e' club you're always talkin' about. And fur's that child's concerned, she's not asked much about what she likes or wants, fur as I kin see, nohow/' This speech made Mrs. Read mentally decide that Au«t Phoebe was a regular busy body, and she felt, greatly incensed toward tire old lady. During her three weeks' stay, Aunt Plioebe received nothing but rude treatment at the hands of the Read children, who mimicked her way of speaking, talked about her style of dress, and showed their utter lack of good breeding. Not once did the old lady reveal the fact that she plainly heard everything they said. But she was very much attached to Lucy and her little ally, Jamie for they made up by their kind atten tions for what the other children lacked. One day Aunt Phoebe asked Mil dred and Lucy if they would not like to go to the moving-picture show "I'm goin' away in a few days," she said, "an' I'd like to give you a little treat afore I leave." She had often brought home candy, fruit and dain ties to the children whenever she went down town, and had listened to fun that Mildred and Bert made of her gifts, while they ravenously dis posed of the same. Lucy at once thanked Aunt Phoebe for her invitatibn to the theater, and said she'd hive to go. But Mildred said she didn't think she wanted to go just then. Then she expressed herself* freely to Lucy, not dreaming that her aunt heard it all. "Would you go to tho show with her?" she asked. "Why, she's show enough herself without going down town to one. I bet she wouldn't know enough to buy tickets, and she'd try to rush in and take a seat anywhere. And the looks of her! Why, I wouldn't be seen on the street with such a sight for anything." "Well, I'm going.with her," Lucy answered. "She wants to be nice to us, and it would be a shame not to go. Besides, Mildred, she knows how to act and what to do, I've been to town with her often, and she isn't ignorant like you think. Besides, she's as kind as she can be, and I like her more every day even if she does dress kind of queer.'' Aunt Phoebe was getting on her things by this time, and the two girls were out in the hall near by, but close enough for her to catch the conversation that took place. Then she Jreard Mrs- Read's voice. "O well, if you want to go out with that scarecrow, just go along, Lucy. %You're good company for each other." And she laughed maliciously. Then Mildred spoke: "I'd be scared stiff for fear I'd see someone that knew me if I went out on the street with that sight. I believe Lucy kind of likes the style of her bonnet and clothes. Don't you, Lucy? I bet you'll be dressing like her yourself one of these days. Maybe she'll leave you her bonnet to remember her by away. You Avhen she seem of hers anything." it goes to be a sort of pet I wquldn't be her pet for -A*! vijli Just then the door opened and Aunt Phoebe stepped out. Her eyes were snapping at she looked first at Mrs. Read and then at Mildred. "Who'd want you for a pet?" she said, addressing the latter. "Such a sassy, impudent girl as you are!" Consternation was writ large on the faces of the three, and there was a look" of humiliation, on two faces, at least. Then turning to Mrs. Read: "So you think I haven't heard every word sence I've been in this house. Why, I can hear as well as anybody, and better as most people, too." Mrs. Read gasped and her face was truly a study. "I've heerd every mean thing you've been sayin' agin me," went on Aunt Phoebe, "and all the peart, sassy things them children of yours said. Not that I'd expect anything much of them, seein' the bringin' up they've got. And I've seen, too, how different this little gal is from the other two," she turned to Lucy. "And I want to say it's a downright shame the way she's worked to death in this house, and not treated half right." "I suppose she's been complaining to yoif, like the sly creature that she is," interrupted Mrs. Read, thorough ly angry at this tirade. "No, she ain't been complainin'," continued Aunt Phoebe, "she's told me how good you folks wuz to give her a home. And I thought to my self at the time that it sure wasn't very homelike for the poor little orphant gal." "Well, take her yourself if you think she hasn't a good enough home with us,".angrily retorted Mrs. Read. Then she turned to Lucy: "You'd better go with this old woman. She thinks we're not fit company for you." "Wal, she's welcome to come with me," said Aunt Phoebe. "She won't be worked from morning till night, I'll promise you, and she can go to school like other children. And an other thing, too, I'll leave my fortin to her when I die if she'll be willin' to come with me. O, yes, you look surprised to hear me speak of a fortin, but you can't alius jedge by appear ances, Hannah Read." Poor Lucy stood tearful and trem bling during this announcement from Aunt Phoebe. "Now what liev you got to say, little gal?" She turned to the child. "Do you care to go with a old creetur like me?" Before poor Lucy arose visions of rest and(surcease from constant toil and added to this, the assurance of going to school, her great desire. "Why, of course she wants to go,' Mrs. Read said with sarcasm. "After she knows that she'll be an heiress some day," and she laughed unpleas antly. "Why, yes, I'd like to go with you Aunt Phoebe," faltered Lucy, "but but then you've been kind to give me a home," she turned to Mrs. Read "and I'll never forget that." "No, I suppose not," was Mrs Read's satirical answer. "I'll pack up your things, and you can g6 a soon as you like." With this she strode to Lucy's room and began tc gather her clothing. The little girl had on© regret at leaving, and that was her parting with Jamie. But Mr. Read, who had always felt kindly toward Lucy promised to bring the. little boy tc see her often, which he afterward did. Upon reaching Aunt Phoebe'i home she found it to be a large, com fortable though rather old-fashionec place, with very beautiful, well-kepi grounds surrounding it. A kind, pleasant-faced servant gave them a warm welcome, anc Lucy felt quite at home and happj from the very first. She went to school and gained the much desired education that she sc often dreamed of when she was wit! the Read family. Aunt Phoebe's one desire was to make Lucy happy, sc she allowed her to often invite hei girl friends and have merry partie: and pleasant outings together. Anc Lucy was very popular with the girls One day Aunt Phoebe laughingly remarked: "You know, I heard yoi tell Mildred, when you both though I couldn't hear, that you liked and would go with me even if I di dress funny, bless your dear heart Well, I'm goin' to try and be a bi' more stylish for your sake. Wh: not?" when Lucy remonstrated. Anc she did adopt a more up-to-dat style of dress and looked wonderfully sweet and charming in modern at tire. Besides, the old-fashionec house was remodeled, and new fur nishings installed, and they wert both greatly delighted over what th old lady called "a shakin' up al around." And Martha, the maid shared their pleasure. As time passed Mildred vastly im proved in her disposition and deepl." regretted her conduct toward Aun Phoebe and Lucy. She went to se» them after Lucy had repeatedly sen her urgent invitations, and humbl' apologized for her past uncharitable ness. Needless to say, she was par doned and ever after she and Luc and Aunt Phoebe were the best o friends, and often she came anc spent several weeks at a time witl them in their beautiful home. Jamie, too, frequently came to sec his favprite "Lu," and a delightfu reunion followed. And so Lucy tjic orphan girl met with great good for tune and many blessings all becausc of her sweet, unselfish character anc her patient endurance of the many crosses that marked her childhood's path. —Catherine Have*, tn the Tidings.
