Byrne, Catholic chaplain of the United States Peniten tiary at Atlanta, Ga. A believer in bringing the best there is in men to the top is Father Byrne, and that is why hundreds of prisoners who have left that institution look back to him and bless him in their daily prayers. A believer also in the influence of good books is Father Byrne, and that is why after his work In the chapel and confessional his chief interest in life now is the building up of a library for the Catholic inmates.

Scores of men who have gone forth from its walls, some of them bankers, some of them lawyers and men in public life, have promised their aid in help ing to build up a library for Father Byrne and the men under his care.

This Season Appears to Feature of Catholic Authors Promineftt-In the world of drama, Catholic au thors in Ireland are well to the fore this season.

Several new plays are listed for setting during the sea son. These include a three-act drama by Mr. T. C. Murray. He has alread written some adinirable sketches Irish rural life. A one-act play by Mr. Bernard Duffy will be produced. As a novelist, Mr. Duffy has made a good impression upon the reading pub lic. His novel "Oriel" was highly ap preciated. It need hardly be said that both Mr. Murray and Mr. Duffy are Catholics. Among the other new plays for the Abbey is one written by a Catalonian and dedicated to Terence MacSwiney, late Lord Mayor of Cork. Pilgrims Resume Vialts.—-The pil grimages of Saint Quentin, which were interrupted during the war, have just been resumed in the city of the same name In France. Bordered for months and months by the line of combat, the great basilica erected in the twelfth and fifteenth centuries suffered terribly from artil lery fire. It has lost its arches, its tower, its 110 windows and all its furniture, in fact the building itself was on the verge of collapse. Ever since the armistice work has been go ing on to strengthen the pillars and the walls which supported the arch of the central nave, at a height of 40 me Eversharps, with sautoir neck attachment.

The least damaged portion of the church has been covered and restored, and it is in this part that the bishops of Amiens, Soissons and Beauvais re cently presided over the offices in honor of the Saintly martyr.

Oante Celebration by Dail Eireann. Extensive preparations for the cel ebration of the Dante Sexcentenary have been inaugurated by the Ministry of Fine Arts of Dail Eireann. At the principal celebration in the Mansion House, Dublin, in December, Presi dent De Valera will preside, and the attendance will include the Minister of Education, official representatives from the leading educational literary and artistic bodies in the country, and a number of other distinguished Irish men. Irrespective of creed or party, the foremost leaders of Irish thought are combining in a spontaneous trib ute to the greatest of Christian poets, Cathedral Has Thirty Bells.—On the feast of all the Saints of Ireland the inauguration took place of the new carillon with which St Pat rick's Cathedral, Armagh, has been furnished. The carillon consists of thirty bells, the total weight of which is 11 tons. The largest bell weighs nearly 3 tons while the weight of the smallest is only 20 pounds. In his Lenten Pastoral for 1920, Cardinal Logue said one of the chief works to which he had set his hand since com ing to Armagh was to complete, and, as far as possible, render worthy of God's honor, the National Cathedral Now that his end drew near he should like to put the last touches to it be fore it might please God to call him away. One of the remaining things needed was to furnish the tower with peal of bells. He then asked the clergy and laity of the Archdiocese to help him in completing the work up on which he had set his heart. This pathetic appeal met with a generous response. A magnificent carillon has been installed and Armagh Cathedral shares with St. Colman's Cathedral, Cove, the distinction of possessing two of the finest modern carillons in the world. Priest Scholar Dead: After a long life of intense and fruitful work for the good of ttte Church, the life of Mgr. Giuseppe Camele, Private Cham berlain to His Holiness, has come to an end. Born August 18, 1842, of a noble family of Lagonegro, he embraced the priestly vocation, in which he afterwards distin guished himself by his zeal and learning. His especial work was the direction of the education of youth and of the clergy. To this end he founded a college at Lagonegro, whose direction he supervised. With liter ary ability most marked he was a frequent contributor to the "Ecclesias tical Monitor." For a short time he held the delicate office of spiritual di rector in several seminaries, acquit ting himself of his sacred duties so as to merit the esteem of all. One of his most famous works is that upon Ec clesiastical Pedagogy, and, in spite of blindness during the last years of his life, having gathered the precious fruits of his erudition in a volume, he had the happiness of having it publish ed. The loss of Mgr. Camele is keenly felt throughout the Church in Italy, and the memory of his holy life so earnestly dedicated to the greater glory of God will ,be perpetuated through the work which lie has left behind. Spain Seeks Facts.—Evidence of the great attention that the Na tional School for Women's Serv ice is attracting in Catholic coun tries is manifested by communications which have been received by the na tional headquarters of the National Council of Catholic Women asking for its program and prospectus. Among the most recent communica tions is that received from Dolores Pidal, the secretary of the Women's Catholic Social Action Society of Spain, with headquarters in Ma drid. With several students from foreign countries, Including France, Belgium, Poland and Italy, already in attendance at the Service School, it is expected that it will become a vital bond between the Catholic women of America and those of foreign countries. Mgr. Cerretti Says dews' Mass." —This was the touching ceremony. recently presided over by Mgr. Cer retti, Papal Nuncio, in the Basilica of Montmartre, Paris. He had consented to celebrate Mass on the first Friday of the month at the main altar of the Sacred Heart for the repose of the souls of the husbands of all these Christian women who fell on the field of battle. The various Christian as sociations of war widows invited all their members, and the naves of the great basilica were entirely filled with WASTE The greatest crime in the world perhaps is waste.

Cardinal Du bois and the auxiliary bishop of Paris were in the choir, and it was the new Archbishop of Rouen, Mgr. Charost, who during the war was bishop of Lille, who delivered the sermon. In stirring words he exhorted the widows to rise through the nobility of their resignation, courage and abnegation to the heights of the sublime sacrifice made by the heroes for whom they wept.
