SATURDAY, AUGUST 5,1922 One of the latest vagaries of Some "High" Anglicans is to in clude portions of the Roman Mis sal and of Roman Liturgy in the prayerbooks which they are hav ing printed for those of their co-religionists who share their opinions concerning religious mat ters. Everybody's pocketbook was lightened on an average by nearly $5 in the past fiscal year, accord ing to the statement of money in circulation on July 1, issued by the Treasury. Per capita circula tion of money on July 1, was $39.87, as compared with $44.78 on July 1,1921. The Catholic Truth Society has just issued a very interesting brochure of 24 pages (price five cents) on Freemasonry. It is from the pen of Rev. Lucian Johnston. The subject is treated in a fair and instructive manner, and the testimony of Masons is adduced in support of various statements. BYr the first time in several years prices of the two staple foodstuffs, bread and meat, have shown a slight drop in the Mos cow markets. But other staples, such as sugar and butter, are ris ing. Simultaneously the Soviet ruble, which for more than a month has stood at about 4,000,000 to the dollar, advanced in value to the ratio of 3,800,000 to the dollar. 'An exceedingly large per cent of onr boys and girls are hellward bound today because of paternal neglect and indifference, says an Indiana editor. The great trouble is that the average parent, either through weakness, mistaken kind ness, or a disinclination to take from his own leisure the time necessary to discipline his chil dren, attempts to pass this obliga tion on to others. He looks to the school teaehers and their public or quasi-public directors of juvenile activities to do that which can be done properly only by himself. The natural consequence is that it isn't done at all. A local Methodist, has called our attention to a movement in the Methodist Episcopal Church at the present time that is certainly surprising, says the Denver Reg ister. It is to put the pay of the ministers of that denomination into a central fund and to divide it up, so that all can live in more or less poverty. And the reason for this is to make them imitate the great Catholic saint, Francis of Assisi, founder of the Francis can Order. The Rev. Dr. Paul Hutchinson read a paper at the Evanston conference on religion apd economic order, .bringing forth the plan. .. Commenting upon an editorial in the Birmingham Age Herald, which placed the sole responsibili ty for the salaeious play upon the audience, as the managers and producers merely supplied the de mand, the Dearborn Independent says editorially: "A little reflec tion should suffice to show the fal lacy of this reasoning. The pre text is that of the pander and the gambling house keeper, of the bootlegger and the purveyor of shoddv and of adulterated foods. lt is the shameful excuse of the yellow press and of every agency practicing public debauchery for *the money that is in it.' Miss Mabel Carney, of part merit ttt¥ of TV- Rural Education, Teachers' College, Columbia Uni f«rsity, cites an instance to show! how little the woVlt of the teaclier is appreciated by the average local school board, says the Echo. In a town in northern Minnesota, lo cated in the iron mining district, school revenue had been so plenti ful that, after every conceivable investment, for buildings, equip ment, etc., had been made, funds still remained. Finally, after failing to find any possible way to spend the balance, a painting was purchased for $10,000 and hung in the auditorium. It never occurred to the school board to raise the teachers'salaries! English Catholic papers are warning the public against "Harms worth's Universal Eiicv cyclopedia," and as this reference work is pretty sure to be adver tised in this country before long, we deem it our duty to echo the warning. "Harmsworth's Uni versal Encyclopedia" is honey combed with infidelity. The article on "Jesus Christ, His Life and Work," for example, is full of offensive and blasphemous state ments. Under the head of "Jes uits" is rehashed the old, old calumny that the disciples of Loyola teach that the end justifies the means. We hope Catholics will not be misled into buying such an offensive and inaccurate work, which may do great harm to the uninstructed. A non-Catholic Englishman writes the following testimonial of the Church in the Manchester Guardian: "Of the Church of Rome I would say at once that no one who has worked in a Roman Catholic neighborhood, or who has visited regularly in a hospital, can deny that she has kept her poor faithful to her teaching and practice to an extent not equalled by any other community. She has never for a moment fallen into the heresy of regarding the first duty of the Church to be the im provement of the conditions of this world. The Church of Rome has never been backward in tak ing the part of the poor. From India to Peru, she has withstood kings, princes and governors on behalf of the poor, the oppressed and the slave." EXERCISES OF DEVOTION. One of the peculiar beauties of the Catholic Church is to be found in the great variety of devotions which she offers to her children. In the first place, she sets before them the grand essential* of re ligion: dogmas, mysteries of faith, sacraments. Upon these solid foundations does she rear the edifice of faith, comely, rea sonable and permanent. Fortified in the strength flowing from this source, the practical Catholic is bidden go forth and save his soul. No angle or circumstance of life is left unguarded adequate means are given him to cope with every danger, every emergency and every need of existence. At the same time this edifice is not a bare fortress. It is stately and imposing but it is also adorned and embellished and set off with all the ornaments that make it a veritable tower of ivory, a house of gold and the ark of the covenant. The shields of strong men hang from its towers: but the graceful spires that leap into the air, the glinting rays of light that play about its battlements, and the fragrant gar dens that are found within the enclosure beyond the moat and portcullis, all tell of an artistry that reflects a love of beauty. Now, the devotions of the Church are precisely these adorn ments. They flow naturally from the fountains of the sacraments and the simplicity, virility and life of faith. They take form in all those practices of piety so common among the faithful: novenas, prayers to one's patron, the use of blessed candles, of holy water, sacred images, relics, suffrages for the suffering souls, indulgences, offerings for God's poor, Stations of the Cross, and countless other loved forms of individual piety. A Catholic who prizes his faith at its full value will seek to ben efit by these riches placed at his disposal by a loving Mother. He will profit to a great extent by the opportunities afforded him to draw closer to God. Never will he make these devotions the chief aim of his religion but while clinging to the sturdy oak of faith, he will also from time to time avail himself of the fruit hanging thereon, and he will admire the luxuriant growth of limb and branch and spreading leaf. BREEZES FROM THE SOUTH. Just now the South, our proud land of chivalry, is the scene of new activities. Bigotry in myriad forms is breaking out every day. The Catholic Church is the object of nearly every attack: Klan, Knights of America, wandering ex-priests," "ex-nuns," lying slanderers, not counting ex-con victs, and not omitting the follow ers oFlbe little^ Votewiitsons, these and more have turned the delightful southland into a veri table Babylon of confusion. The southern people are noted for hospitality. This perhaps may account for the abuse of this beau tiful quality by the benighted mongrels who gain their daily bread, and incidentally consider able fiendish satisfaction, from the violence which they stir up. Not rarely ignorance of the object attacked arouses the sane people of the South to apparent danger. At heart, however, they are sound. They even tolerate the blustering Watson in the Senate, the same statesman who at inter vals threatens to whip this or that colleague. (It. might prove salu tary to eleet to that august body the redoubtable Jack Dempsey or the local pride. Mike Gibbons. It would be a brief but glorious battle, my mates! Yo ho, and a bottle of liniment.) Lately we have become aware of certain pungent and malodorous breezes from the South infecting the clear atmosphere of the North, A few buccaneers are stealthilv going about seeking whom they may enlist, in the fight against their Catholic fellow citizens. To be more specific, the Twin Cities are not free from these mischief makers. More than once of late have we come upon facts that show the aim of these men. A whispering campaign is not un known here right now. A certain prominent .Jewish lawyer, ap proached upon the subject, indig nantly ejected the scoundrel, add ing that Jews and Catholics had suffered enough in the past from such infamy, and that the whole scheme was entirely un-American. Now. it is not our intention to do aught that would stir up strife. Our fondest wish is to live at peace with all our fellow citi zens of every creed, race and col or. We deprecate disturbance of all kinds. We associate with all we trade with them Ave assist in every good cause, and we are Avilling to unite with them in every movement for the better ment of the community. When, however, Ave learn that signatures are quietly being sought: that respectable citizens are being approached to aid in doing us harm that lies and slanders are being disseminated about us that certain business men, who willingly receive our money and patrouage, applaud in public attacks made by unprin cipled rascals upon us and our faith when, in a word, Ave conditions Avarrant be come aware that the bigoted elements of the community are trying to band against us, we would not be human were we to remain passive. These breezes from the South are laden AATith deadly laisama. They blow in upon a people who desire health and freedom from contamination. They are the product of unhealthy minds and diseased souls. What more natural than that we should strive to dissipate them? Will publicity accomplish this result? If shun strife: to others, because it Avould pillory them before their just and upright fellow men. Whatever may betide, these enemies, if they continue their foul tactics, will not be allowed to work in secret. The public wi^l learn their names, their deeds and their motives. And the public will judge. HONORING OUR HEROES. It was a beautiful thought of the Daughters of the American Revolution to originate the idea of a monument to the heroes of Ram sey County who gave their lives for their country in the world Avar. Soldiers, sailors, marines and nurses will be remembered by a grateful citizenry. The memorial will take the form of a graceful shaft surmounted by a cross, the symbol of redemption— fitting testimonial to those who paid the price of our redemption from the death of defeat. This monument will stand in Shadow Falls Park at the foot of Summit avenue, where it will make its appeal to the countless thousands who yearly pass that delightful spot. It is expected that the whole memorial will be in place by October 1, when a solemn dedication will be held. Shafts and monoliths as remind ers of great victories were com mon in ancient times. The obelisks of Egypt are a splendid example while Greece and Rome seemed to revel in this particular form of national pride. With the coming of Christianity the cross blazoned forth from these symbols of tri umph, and the custom has existed and prevailed down to the present day. The model of this Ramsey mem orial is to be seen in the window of the Holmes and Olson store. It is the purpose of the organizers of the testimonial to encourage many small donations rather than a few large ones, in order that this pledge of a people's gratitude may be widely representative. »HB istitdLie BULLETtk, Xtftsofet'i, 1922 WHERE ARE THE CHILDREN ON SUNDAY? We are taught by our holy faith that one of the chief obliga tions, one of the most stringent duties, incumbent upon a Catho lic, man, yoman or child, is attendance at Mass on Sunday. The Church makes this the test of loyalty. She is insistent upon our meeting it without equivocation, pretext or sham. So determined is her view of the necessity of this act of public worship that she obliges us sub gravi, as theolo gians say, that is, under penalty of mortal sin. True, there may be circumstances, as grave illness, long distance from church and other similar causes, that will serve as lawful excuse from this attendance. But, the Church takes the vieAv that since violation of the precept is a mortal sin, it therefore requires a very serious reason to justify one in absenting himself. The presence of a Catholic school in a parish usually means that the children's Mass on Sun day witnesses practically every child in his place for the Holy Sacrifice. The teachers and the priests have impressed upon the child mind the important nature of the Mass and the corresponding duty of every child to attend Hence the absence of a single boy or girl is quickly noted, and ordi narily means are at once taken to bring the youngster into line. So successful is this method all through the year that many churches are forced to reserve the entire edifice for the children and their special Mass. During the vacation months, however, WHERE ARE THE CHILDREN ON SUNDAY MORN ING? Some parishes, it is true, make a goodly showing in this line. It is perhaps not too much to say, hoAvever, that the average church seems to be comparatively deserted at the children's Mass on Sunday mornings during the sum mer. Now, certain prosperous localities may explain this by the fact that many children spend the vacation in the country, at the lakes, etc., and therefore they at tend elsewhere. What about the ordinary parish, where the vast majority of the people spend the summer at home Are the chil dren permitted Avith impunity to miss Mass? Do the parents allow this? Do they sanction the child's leaving early for lake or country Avithout having--fulfilled this obli gation? Or do they simply toler ate Mary's or Johnny's sleeping late in the moaning? A Catholic who is recreant to this bounden duty of Sunday Mass is Avorthless. such a course the publicity probably will be forthcoming, although this means would prove unpleasant to all concerned to us, because Ave He is but a rotten specimen of religion, a disgrace to his Church and a scandal before unbelievers. Are our children to day growing into such future renegades? Does religion mean anything to them, outside of the merjace of punishment for derelic tion of duty?. Are they being made thoroughly religious or are they becoming simply time-serv ers, even as the offspring of those Avho belong to some denomination that does not demand church attendance, but simply advises it Here is a fruitful source of leak age in the Catholic Church. Use less to deny it ridiculous to seek to cover it harmful to evade it, and fatal to tolerate it. The cause? Is it the children? The parents? The method of in struction in onr parochial schools? Surely one can place his finger on the sore and declare with truth that the source of the infection is to be found in one or aViother of these three places, perhaps in all three. No doubt the parents chiefly are to blame. They con trol the actions of the child. It is for them to enforce the law in their families. The Church does not permit them to dispense from her law in favor of their own children. They assume this right at their OAVII risk. If the child misses Mass, usually the sin is upon the souls of the parents as well as upon those of the children. There is no escaping this conclu sion. Disobedience on the part of a refractory child easily can be adequately punished. What about the methods of in struction? Is the child handled properly in this regard? Is re ligion pounded into him and forced down his throat at the point of an instrument of torture or a dire threat of murder? You cannot legislate people into good ness, nor can you drive practical faith into a child's mind. Are the children given special instructions on this obligation, particularly during the feAv weeks preceding the vacation Are they convinced of the necessity of this duty, or are they subject merely to threats of hell fire, a thrashing or other form of suffering? The fact remains that our paro chial school children, in spite of all our boastiilg, do not as a body attend Mass on Sunday during the summer months. The cause of this dereliction must be found, and remedies taken to remove it. Sure lv it is a time for a searching of hearts on the part of teachers, parents and priests* CAVE HER LIFE SUPERIOR OP GOOD 8HEPHERD HOME DIES AS RESULT OF RIOT —MOTHER MARY WAS VICTIM OP INTENSE CHARITY. Two weeks ago, the wires carried throughout the nation the story of the troublous times at the House of the Good Shepherd, Detroit, Mich., when a band of unruly women turned, with the unbridled fury of beasts, upon the gentle Sisters who conduct the insti tution. Many of the women who led the riotous mob were crazed—the aft ermath of the drug which sent them to the sheltering walls of the cdnvent —and mistaking liberty for license, could see but snares and poison in the ordinary provisions of life. For three hours, amid the jeers and taunts and curses of the infuriated women, Mother Mary of St. Francis Xavier, the superioress of the institu tion, held the mob at bay, now coun seling, now pleading. But her physi cal endurance was not as great as her moral courage, and, at the end of the siege, she collapsed, falling exhausted at the feet of her tormentors. For three days, she suffered, and early Sunday morning closed her eyes on a weary world. Mother Mary of St. Francis Xavier Reidy was born in New York City, February 1, 1863, and entered the con gregation of the Good Shepherd in Louisville, Ky., in 1885. Throughout her religious life, she held important positions in various convents, labor ing for sixteen years with the Magda lene community, where her memory will linger, like a benediction. In 1912, she was made Mother Superior of the House of the Good Shepherd at Grand Rapids, where her great zeal and executive ability was made mani fest, and, in 1918, she was appointed custodian of the convent in Detroit. PUini6ET0 SHRINE Members of the Confraternity of Our Lady of Consolation will make the annual late summer pilgrimage to the Shrine of Our Lady of Consolation at Carey, Ohio, August 6 to 15. The schedule of services will consist of Holy Masses, Confraternity exercises, Blessing with the relic of the Holy Cross, Rosary, Benediction, Novena prayers. Pilgrims visiting the Shrine for the first time will be received into the Confraternity. DM« BY FIDE Damage of $3,000 was caused by an early morning fire, on Tuesday, in the Madonna di Pompeii church, Milwau kee. Firemen were more than an hour controlling the flames, which ate their BISHOP TWICE INJURED Mgr. Oibier, Bishop of Versailles, who was injured in an automobile ac cident a few weeks ago, has just been the victim of another accident. While attending a meeting of the Catholic athletic societies of the dio cese of Croissy, in company with Un der-Secretary of State Colrat, the grandstand collapsed under the weight of the spectators. Many people were injured and M,gr. Gibier was struck by a timber over one eye. Fortunately, the wound did not prove to be serious. KEEP TOJHE LEFT TRAFFIC RULES WERE FIRST MADE BY POPE BONIFACE IN 1300. In England, the rule of the road is that all traffic shall keep to the left, and an agitation has been started by the Safety First Society to nave pe destrians observe this rule—which they do not. ID the discussion of the regulation, the interesting fact has been brought out that this English rule of keeping to the left was instituted by Pope Bon iface VIII. The reasons that induced the Pope to introduce the rule for traffic, which the English still observe, is that at the Papal Jubilee in 1300 the concourse of pilgrims and visitors to Rome was so great that the Pope devised these rules for the regulation of traffic. As to the present continental rule of keeping to the right, this is said to have dated from the time of the French Revolution, when an obstinate opposition to anything like an ecclesi astical direction brought about a re versal of the old rule. WINS UTEIMIY PIKE The Brequette-Gonin prize of 10,000 francs awarded by the French acad emy for historical work of unusual merit, was given this year to a priest, Abbe Chenesseau, of Orleans. Abbe Chenesseau's work was a his tory of the construction of the Sainte Croix Cathedral in Orleans. noil SHU SHIES The Labor Committee of the Paris Chamber of Deputies has approved the report of the Duke of Dalmatia in avor of the adoption of the bill pre lented by Abbe Lemire on the sub ject of Sunday auction sales. Despite the legal institution of Sun day as a day of rest, it is the custom in some rural districts to hold auc tion sales on Sunday because it is the one day when the farmers are not at work in the fields. It has been proved, however, that these sales deprive many notaries, clerks, etc., of their Sunday rest, and the bill of Abbe Le mire proposes to abolish all auction wles on Sunday, /r MONTANA SCHOOL FOR INDIANS LAYING OF CORNERSTONE AT VILLA UR8ULA, INDIAN SCHOOL, ST. IGNATIUS MISSION, SUNDAY, JULY 16—NEW BUILDING TO TAKE PLACE OF BURNED STRUCTURE—BI8HOP CARROLL OFFICIATES AND DELIVER8 TOUCHING ADDRE8S. The laying of the cornerstone of the new Ursullne convent at St. Ignatius Mission, St. Ignatius, Mont., proved to be a touching and impressive cere mony. More than three hundred peo ple from all parts of the reservation were present. The Right Rev. John P. Carroll, D. D., Bishop of Helena, ac companied by the Right Rev. Mgr. Willging and many priests, officiated at the solemn function. At four o'clock, the Right Reverend Bishop, preceded by surpliced altar boys and members of the clergy, made his way to the church, where he put on his pontifical robes, whilst the choir ren dered the "Ecce Sacerdos Magnus" in a brilliant fashion. Then the proces sion, made up of altar boys and many friends of the nuns, the Sisters of Charity of Providence, other visiting Sisters, the Ursulines, and lastly the Bishop, accompanied by his clergy, started out of the church. The procession first stopped at the site of the chapel of the new convent, where the Bishop blessed a cross erected for the occasion. A beautiful canopy of green branches had been arranged above the stone and there the Bishop officiated. After calling the blessing of God on the new build ing, the Bishop took the trowel and with it made the Sign of the Cross over the cornerstone, which he then blessed and sprinkled with holy wa ter, whilst one of the clergy inserted in the center of the stone, hollowed out for that purpose, a leaden box in which were placed fnedals, signatures of benefactors, a copy of the local pa per and relics of the old building de stroyed by fire. The masons then put the cornerstone in place whilst the litanies of the Saints were chanted by the clergy and the Ursuline choir. Then the procession wound its way all around the building, during which time the clergy recited the psalm, "Mis erere," and the Bishop sprinkled each part of the new building with holy water. Having reached the canopy again, the Right Reverend Bishop, mi tred and holding the crozier in his left hand, gave this touching and in spiring address: The Bishop's Address. "The night of February 19 to 20 last, brought great sorrow to St. Ignatius Mission. That night the Ursuline Boarding School for Indian Girls was burned to the ground, the tragedy of horrors having reached its height when it was discovered that good Sis ter St. John had perished in the flames. Three years before, the In dian School of the Sisters of Charity of Providence was totally destroyed by fire. That school has not since been rebuilt. This fact, coupled with the thought that perhaps the Ursuline school, too, could not be replaced, add ed to the sorrow of that eventful night and plunged St. Ignatius in gloom. "But the cloud of depression has lifted, and today, as we lay the cor nerstone of the splendid building pro jected by the Sisters of St. Ursula, our sorrow is turned into joy. Thanks to the prayers and generosity of the friends of the Indian children all over the United States, a new era in the history of our beloved Indian Mission has opened, and we look forward with hope and confidence and pride to the successful completion of the work in augurated here today. It would take too long to make special mention of all those who contributed to this noble cause. In the name of the good Sis ters and of the Fathers of St. Ignatius Mission, as well as in my own name, I wish to thank all our donors, great and small. May God bless them and may generations of Indian children, yet unborn, rise up and call them blessed. POPE Bits® K.0F C. MR. HEARN BEAR8 MESSAGE FROM HOLY FATHER—K. C. WORKERS GIVEN HIGHEST DEC ORATION. Edward L. Hearn of Mew Yortt, Eu ropean Commissioner of the Knights of Columbus, arrived in New York last week by the S. S. Majestic, bearing a message from His Holiness Pope Pius XI for the fortieth annual su preme convention of the Knights of Columbus, which began in Atlantic City August 1. Mr. Hearn, who directed the work of the K. of C. with the A. E. F. throughout the war, has, for the past six months, been in Rome inaugurat ing the $1,000,000 American welfare work undertaken in Italy by the K. of C. at the behest of the late Pope Ben edict XV. Pope Pius XI, in a recent interview accorded Mr. Hearn, cordially endors ed the K. of C. project and donated to Mr. Hearn the first piece of ground belonging to the Holy See ever award ed to other than Italians. It was the Pope's wish that the ground be used for a playground. It will be the cen tral welfare activities location of the K. of C. in Rome. While overseas, Mr. Hearn received the highest decoration ever awarded an American layman by the Vatican— the Ambassadorial Star. He was also made a Knight Commander of the Or der of St. Gregory the Great in re ward for his services as Supreme Knight and European Commissioner of the K. of C. Commissioner Hearn also brought a gavel, made of walnut wood taken from an ancient altar of the Popes in the private chapel of the Vatican, to be used at the opening of the conven tion of the organization at Atlantic |City. iv. -4MU Symbol of Strength. 'This school is the symbol of our educational system throughout the United States. Of this system, Bishop Spalding said that it is the greatest fact in the history of the Church in America. It represents the struggle of the greatest religious organization in the world against, the forces of un belief. Other Christian denominations gave up the fight to maintain their schools, but the Catholic Church has never bowed to secularism in educa tion. She believes that the life of re ligion, or at least its vigor, cannot be kept up and perpetuated in our day and country unless religion becomes a vital part of education. The fact that two-thirds of the American peo ple are affiliated with no religious de nomination is admitted by all to be due in great part to the absence of religion from the education of the young, and there is a growing desire on the part of Protestants generally to put back religion into the public school, from which they now see it was unwisely banished. Our Indian Charges. "Now, if religious education is need ed to save the religious future of the children of America, how much more necessary is it not to save the reli gious future of our Indian children? Other children have at least the home whose traditions, inherited from a glo rious Christian ancestry, can, or should, go a long way towards keep ing alive the religious spirit. But our Indian children, whose ancestors have only recently been converted from pa ganism, cannot be expected to enjoy such religious home influence. Their thorough consolidation in the morality of the Gospel can only come from the religious training and the religious at mosphere of the Catholic boarding school established for their special benefit. It was not through the Ca thedral day schools of the early cen turies of Christianity, but through the monastic boarding schools of the Mid dle Ages that the Church formed her children in those habits of morality and religion which developed the Christiah home in the bosom of so ciety. If Catholic schools are neces sary adjuncts of the home in I he main tenance of religion in the hearts of our children generally, Catholic board ing schools are absolutely indispen sable for the creation and fostering of habits of Christian morality in the lives of our newly converted Indian tribes. Tribute to Nuna. "Thanks to the leadership of our Bishops and priests and the sacrifices of the laity, we have schools in good ly number for both whites and In dians but these schools could not be maintained or developed without those noble bands of consecrated men and women who are devoting their lives to the glorious cause of Christian ed ucation. Without their labors and sac rifices, the Church in America would still be in its struggling missionary stages. Its prosperity and proud em inence among the Churches of the world it owes in great part to them. "I congratulate the Daughters of St. Ursula on the courage evidenced in the work inaugurated today. May the prayers and the generosity of the friends of the cause they represent bring it to a glorious completion." In conclusion, the Right Reverend Bishop thanked once more from his heart all who had helped to make a success of the ceremony, and whilst all the clergy and the choir in union with the whole congregation joined in a hymn of thanksgiving to God, the procession made its way back to the church. The members of the clergy present were Monsignor Willging, Chancellor of the diocese Rev. A. Sullivan, S. J.% Superior of St. Ignatius Mission Rev. Fathers John O'Kennedy, J. Bruckert. S. J., J. Farrell, S. J., J. McNamara, S. J., J. Cunningham, S. J., Herman Schuler, S. J., M. A. Dimier, S. J., and Frank Menager, S. J. Great credit is due especially to Mr. E. K. Sheble, construction engineer, who has spared no pains in planning the new building and who is putting all his energy into its completion. GOES MILAM MGR. ORSENIGO 13 APPOINTED MCW INTERNUNCIO. Mgr. Caesar Orsenigo Is expected shortly in Holland, to take up his du ties as newly appointed internuncio at The Hague. His consecration to the episcopate has just taken place in Rome, where Cardinal Gasparri conse crated him Titular Archbishop of Ptolemaide at the Lombardian Church of St. Charles on the Corso. The new internuncio comes directly from his canonry at Milan, where he was a close personal friend of the present Pope, while the latter was Archbishop of Milan. IE FIRST ISEIBS Over Ave thousand people attend ed the celebration at Scotch fort, near Charlottetown, P. E. I., in commemo ration of the landing near that place in 1772 of 210 Highland Catholic im migrants, the first organized band of Scottish settlers to come to Prince Edward Island. Many descendants of these pioneers were present from the Island, other parts of Canada, and the United States. IMIED MICK Very Rev. Patrick Mclnerney, pas tor of the Church of the Assumption, Topeka, Kan., and Rev. Thomas F. Kinsella, chaplain of the Ursuline academy at Paola, Kan., have been named Domestic Prelates by Pope Pius XI at the request of Bishop Ward of Leavenworth, Kan., who is now in Home.
