The excava tions have brought to light the tombs of several bishops and some valuable jewels. MM EVIL HEROIC WORK OF NUNS—RELI GIOUS COMMUNITY EVICTED BY BISMARCK FLOURISHES IN U. S. Sister Veronica, for thirty-two years instructor and principal of St. An drew's School, Murphysboro, 111., has been elected mother general of the order of the Sisters of the Most Pre cious IftOfkUjluthe \&it9d Stages*. The mother house is now located at Ruma, 111., but plans have been made for a new edifice in St. Clair county. The order was evicted from Ger many by Bismarck arid its original founders in this country, coming here fifty, years ago, first took charge of a farm where the nuns worked in the fields, raised sheep, carded and spun wool and threshed wheat, meanwhile striving to acquire a knowledge of English. Their superior, Mother Clem entine, studied in St. Louis and taught her associates. In time the or 'der took care of the parish school at Ruma. The community now has es tablishments in the archdiocese of St. Louis and the dioceses of Alton, Belle ville, Concordia, El Paso, Oklahoma, St. Joseph and Wichita, its members, close to 400 in number, conducting 60 schools, 2 academies, 3 hospitals and one orphanage, and instructing nearly 7,000 pupils.

TEACHING iLESSON •^RICMUR CATHOLICS EFFECTIVE LY MEET PROSELYTISM— Y. A. SELLS OUT. (By N» C. W. C. Newg Service.) Catholics of Trichur, in the Cochin state, have taught one Y. M. C. A. secretary a well-deserved lesson, and have thereby given their brethren of the faith an example that might be followed in many parts of the world where Catholics are perhaps better organized than in India. The Protestants of the place felt en couraged to engineer anti-Catholic propaganda, financing a high school and some Mission stations. These helped to undermine Catholic belief in several families and the Catholic au thorities here had up-hill work to pre vent prdselytistn. Then came the opening ef a branch of the Y. M. C. A. at Trichur, which attracted many Catholic young men to it on account of its recreational facilities. The Y. M. C. A. at first did ndt give evidence of its anti-Catholic proclivities, but Protestant prayers and the distribution of Protestant leaflets soon followed, notwithstand ing vigorous protests from Catholic quarters. This state of affairs lasted for a few months, and the Catholics were roused to action. Representative Catholics asked the Secretary of the Y. M. C. A. to run his concern on non-sectarian and cosmopolitan lines. He paid no heed to their appeal. Then a Catholic Young Men's Association on up-to-date and improved lines was organized un der the direction, of ecclesiastical au thorities, and the Y. M. C. A. Secre tary shortly found to his chagrin that attendance at his office and functions was falling off at a quick pace. With in a few months nobody attended the Y. M. C. A., and the Secretary devoid of support and hope had to pack up, close the building and dispose of the furniture at public auction. The inci dent is instructive enough and is sure to help Catholics in other localities to realize the fact that well organized Catholic associations are more than a match for Protestant combinations. PRIEST HELPSWORI OFFERS LAWN OF CHURCH FOR USE BY EVICTED MINERS. i^he lawn of the St. Elizabeth's church grounds at Hill Station, Pa., with ample space for the accommoda tion of fifteen tents, is open to the families of strikers who have been evicted from dwellings owned by the Pittsburgh Coal Co., according to an announcement made by the Rev. John J. Hughes, pastor of the church, who has declared his sympathy with those who have been forced from their homes by the company and will give them all the support he can. Father Hughes had announced that he was neutral so far as the strike was concerned, but following an in terview with S F. Armstrong, general manager of the Pittsburgh Coal Com pany, in which he was informed that the company- Intends to go through its plan to force the men out of its houses and to bring in strike-breakers to take their places, he announced that he had determined that he must take a stand in favor of the men and their families, and he offered the use of the church lawn on which to pitch their tents. SIX GOLDjfNOBlLEES DOMINICAN NUNS CELEBRATE EVENT AT SAINT CLARA COL LEGE, SINSINAWA, WIS. Signally memorable at Saint Clara will be the Feast of the. Transfigura tion of 1922, for on that day a group of six sisters celebrated the fiftieth anniversary of their reception to the habit—Sister M. Cleophas Cantillon, Sister M. Dalmatia Connor, Sister M. Regis Varley, Sister M. Matthias Casserly, Sister M. Macarius Murphy and Sister M. Theodora Collins. Rev. F. D. McShane, O. P., of Washington, D. C., was the celebrant of the high Mass -offered for the jubilarians, and Rev. James M. Cleary of the Church of the Incarnation, Minneapolis, preached the sermon. Bearing the credentials of fifty years of service in the priesthood, two of them having been spent as chaplain at Saint Clara forty-four years ago, the kindly, venerable speaker, with the sincerity of a friend paid gracious tribute to those who that day had reached the fiftieth milestone in a life of devoted service to God and souls The eloquent sermon left the heart of each hearer thrilled with increased joy and gratitude for the privilege of having been called like the three fa vored Apostles "unto a high mountain apart" SYSTEM FOR DLIND Another step linking the daily life of the blind with that of their more fortunate' brothers was achieved last week at the international conference in Paris for assisting the blind, in the adoption of a new system of writing known as Eastern Braille. The idea was originated by two priests who are devoting their lives to this work, Fattier'Cantonnet and Can on Nouet. The Braille system, apart from the difficulty in reading, even by trained fingers, is not useful for com municating between blind and normal writers. The Cantonnet-Nouet system fol lows more closely the synthetic forms of the Latin alphabet, some letters such as those composed of straight strokes, remaining absolutely un changed. Tests have shown that student can master the reading of the new characters in less than a month as the angles appeal quickly to the sense of touch, IHE fim in OLDE8T KNIGHTS GET GREATj WELCOME IN 40TH CONVEN TION. Two of the original members of the small group that incorporated the Knights of Columbus in 1882 attended the fortieth annual convention of the order last week. They are Cornelius J. Driscoll, in whose office the order was organized, and who according to available records was first grand knight, and William Geary, both of New Haven. The entrance of the two veterans on the convention floor was the signal for a great demonstration on the part of the delegates. There are two others original incorporators now living —Daniel Colwell, who was prevented from attending by illness, and William Selwood. In connection with the early history of the order, it was revealed how, on one occasion, e.fter several years of existence in which little progress was made, it was determined to disband. A resolution had already been put in the meeting and had been carried, when one of the most enthusiastic members, M. E. Tracy, who arrived late, made a fervent appeal for a fur ther continuation of the work and it was decided to go on. The regular meeting of the St. Paul Council of the American Association for the recognition of the Irish Re public will be held Sunday, August 13, at 3 p. m., in the Marquette Room of the Ryan Hotel.

TO SAFEGUARD ITALIANS MGR. CERRATI ANNOUNCES PLAN TO BETTER PROTECT EMI GRANTS FROM ITALY—PARISH PRIESTS IN DISTRICTS FROM WHICH EMIGRATION IS HEAVI EST TO HAVE SPECIAL COURSE OF INSTRUCTION. (By N. C. W. C. News Service.) Mgr. Michele Cerrati, the Italian Bishop in charge of emigration activi ties, has decided upon an effective plan to increase the influence of the clergy in the matter of emigration. Experience having shown that the majority of prospective emigrants are ignorant of the most elementary facts concerning their rights and duties, with the result that they suffer not only in their material interests but also in their moral and religious wel fare, Mgr. Cerrati believes that the best way to remedy the situation would be through the co-operation of the parish priests in those communi ties from which emigration is heavi est. As it is not always easy for in dividuals in remote localities to keep informed concerning the latest rules and regulations governing emigration, or the legal, morai and religious needs of Italians preparing to leave for for eign lands, Mgr. Cerrati, with the ap proval of the Consistorial Congrega tion, has decided to undertake an ex periment which, he is convinced, will enable the clergy to render effective assistance in solving the emigration problem. A special course of instruction for the clergy will be opened in Rome in September, and will include lectures on Italian legislation on emigration, practical assistance for the emigrant (documents, information and advice which emigrants should have before leaving), data concerning the country to which the emigrant is going, and religious preparation of the emigrant with a view to protecting him from propaganda by non-Catholic or anti religious organizations. The course will last two weeks, and the priests chosen to attend it will receive free board, rooms and tuition. The course will be opened on September 4, and may be followed by a second course beginning September 18. Mgr. Cerrati has sent a circular to the Bishops in all the districts of Italy where emigration is heaviest, request ing them to designate the priests in their respective dioceses Who are best fitted to take the course! The efficacy of prayer is drawn from faith which believes in the providence of God, and confidence in the holy promises He had made to us, •IF"-** THEYJEIP HEEOY BUSINESS METHODS APPLIED CHICAGO CATHOLIC CHARITY WORK IS HIGHLY PRAISED— COMMANDED BY OFFICIAL OR GAN OF TH£ ASSOCIATION OF COMMERCE. Commendation of the work of the Associated Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of Chicago, and predic tion that its plan will be adopted gen erally in Catholic charity all over the country is contained in an editorial in Chicago Commerce, the official publi cation of the Chicago Association of Commerce, an organization of borne 60,000 industrial, financial and com mercial concerns of the city. The association maintains a depart ment of Subscription Investigation, which passes upon all subscription so liciting bodies of the city. The edi torial is based on the findings end re port of Henry Stewart, the head of that department. An Expert's Tribute. Under the caption, "Administration of Catholic Charities," Chicago Com merce says editorially: "Organization of the Catholic char ities of Chicago receives an interest ing exposition by Henry Stewart, sec retary of the Subscription Investigat ing Department of the Association of Commerce, who comes to the conclu sion that the Catholic charities plan of this city bids fair to become adopt ed by followers of that Church every where. "The Associated Catholic Charities of the archdiocese of Chicago was formed December 24,1917. There are 369 directors and an executive com mittee of 58 prominent business men. This committee makes systematic vis its to the beneficiary institutions of the archdiocese, and because the mem bers of this committee are business men their administrative standards are those of economy and efficiency, and by encouragement of Archbishop Mundelein they feel the utmost free dom in suggesting institutional im provements. To extend practically the policies of the organization there are 700 priests and 128 conferences of the Society of St. Vincent de* Paul. There are also other relief societies, and the aggregate of workers on the problems of poverty is about 2,500. A central charities bureau relates the parish priests to the various institu tions. "It is the observation of Mr. Stew art, than whom nobody is better in formed on charity organization in this city, that the Catholics have worked out a method whereby conditions of sickness and distress are very quick ly registered in the central organiza tion, and that the vast knowledge and experience of the priests working in their parishes constitute one of the chief assets of the general plan. It is the prediction of this observer that in the next twenty years Catholic charity will, not only as now, be ef ficient in succor and relief, but will have made important progress in pre ventive activities. Children Taught to Understand' Work. "It is noteworthy that the children in Chicago's Catholic schools are be ing educated to appreciate the sacri ficial service of their Church in be half of the needy, and this is evidenc ed by the fact that 80,000 children have written essays on the different phases of relief work in which is en gaged the Associated Catholic Chari ties. Mr. Stewart says that the official annual report of the directors of this great organization is a business man's document setting forth fundamental methods and achievements." TO AID YOUTHS WORK FOR GROWING BOY COM MENDED TO KNIGHTS BY BISHOP. Work in behalf of the growing boy and of foreign-born Catholics was urged upon the Knights of Columbus by the Right Rev. Thomas J. W7alsh, Bishop of Trenton, in his address to the fortieth supreme convention held in Atlantic City. "If the Knights of Columbus will take care of the growing boy," said Bishop Walsh, "then the boy grown into manhood will take care not only of the Knights of Columbus, but of the Church and the nation as well." Bishop Walsh called attention to the work being carried out in Tren ton in behalf of Catholic boys, and he said that a substantial building for a recreational center has been secured at a cost of $150,000, with the aid of the Knights of Columbus and the Catholic men of the community. He urged the spread of such centers, not only in great cities but in towns and rural districts. A great part of the happiness of life consists not in fighting battles, but in avoiding them.
