He knows something of that city and of the country which we now have to call Czecho-Slovakia—though "Bohemia," if not quite accurate, would be much easier—for he has been auditor of Nunciature at Vienna recently, after having served at Brus sels and in the Argentine.

Russell, star (William Fox—5 reels.) A worth-while story typifying the high sense of honor dominating Ameri can soldiers. Hero sacrifices himself to save a dead man's memory and a woman's reputation. As the young army captain whose chivalry almost results in his being disgraced for life, William Russell does some of the finest acting of his career. This is not a war play—suitable for adults.

Mysterious mechanical effects and a real bear and many funny situations to a worth while comedy plot. Everybody will enjoy it. "BACK TO NATURE GIRLS" A Sunshine Comedy (William Fox—2 reels.) Hilarious from start to finish and creates a desire to see more of the same sort of fun and nonsense.

Paul Bartlett, one of the world's leading sculptors and creator of nu merous statues that adorn public places of many American cities, has commenced work on the statue of La fayette which the Knights of Colum bus will present to the city of Metz, France. The statue, which has been accepted with acclaim by the citizens of Metz, will be a replica of the fa mous Bartlett Lafayette presented to France by the school children of the United States some years ago. On the pedestal of the statue will be four new bas-reliefs, one of General Pershing at the tombe of Lafayette, one of Presi dent Wilson reading his war message to Congress, one of Marshal Foch de livering his prophetic message of the recapture of Metz to the supreme offi cers of the Knights of Columbus, and one of Columbus on the Santa Maria. Besides the bas-reliefs there will be symbolic cartouches concerning each subject. The Knights of Columbus are mak ing arrangements for a mammoth pil grimage to Metz for the occasion of the unveiling, which ceremony will probably be performed by Marshal Foch on Lafayette Day, September 6, next year. It is expected that two thousand persons will go to France on a special liner to be chartered by the Knights, and the French government has promised all the assistance in its power to make the pilgrimage a suc cess. The visitors will be conducted over the battlefields of France and will also make a pilgrimage to Lourdes.

Price 50 cents. The distinguished Dominican, Fa ther Piny, has left a number of val uable wrorks on the interior life, works which have proved of inestimable worth to persons seeking the higher planes of spiritual living. Answering the demand for a reprint of these works, Father Noel has given out the third volume of the series which con siders the ways and means to attain Christian perfection. The essence of the author's teachings in all his books is that perfection is most easily reached by complete abandonment of one's self into the hands of God. In this present work the various means by which one may achieve this de sired end are placed before the read er, and in a manner that is intelligible to the simplest as well as to the learned mind. The work should be in the hands of religious, especially, as it points out several ways in which those dedicated in a special manner to God may attain to the heights of their spiritual ambitions.
