DIOCESE OF DULUTH Duluth: Mr. Matthew Boland, New York, the brother of Right Rev. Mon signor Boland, V. G., died at St. Mary's Hospital, Duluth, on Monday, August 14.

Mr. Boland leaves a widow and one daughter. Rev. Theodore J. Schulte, S. J., St. Louis University, is a visitor in Du luth. He is professor of Chemistry at the University. He goes from Du luth to Hibbing to see actual mining operations, which naturally have great interest for him. Monsignor Boland's investiture is fixed for Sunday, August 27, at the Sacred Heart Cathedral at 8 p. m. DIOCESE OF HELENA Dinct-snn CorrrNpondents Rev. Thom as B. Kiiliia. Anaconda: The announcement was made at St. Paul's church that a new parochial school would be built next spring, and that it would be completed and ready for occupancy for the be ginning of the school year the follow ing autumn. The architect is al ready working on plans for the new building, which will be modern in every respect. It will have eight class rooms for the grades and a large hall for the social and recreational activi ties of the parish. This hall will be equipped with a large stage and a steel cage for the best moving picture machine on the market. "The two-pocket envelope system" will be started on the first Sunday in October. The envelopes come in small packages, each containing 63 envel opes, one for each Sunday and holy day of the year and a few extra ones for the special collections. The en velopes will have two pockets, one for the regular plate collection, and the other for the building fund. Each package has a pledge-card which the parishioner" signs, agreeing to con tribute a certain amount each Sun day according to his means. At the end of each month a detailed report will be published, of all contributions during the past month, in St. Paul's Parish Monthly. A general invitation was extended to all the ladies of the parish to attend a meeting to be held in the parish hall, Wednesday afternoon, at 2 o'clock. At this meeting an organization was perfected which will carry out the pro gram outlined. The first work of the ladies will be to take up a complete census of the parish. They will then distribute the packages with envel opes and at the same time procure the pledges. The system has great merit, espe cially in an industrial center, where the majority of the people live right up to their income, and where the in stallment plan is the only successful way of raising large sums. Small amounts, ranging from 25 cents to $2 a week, toward the building fund, from every parishioner who is earning money, would mean in the neighbor hood of $20,000 for St. Paul's parish in one year. A large crowd waa in attendance at the Knights of Columbus picnic held at Mountain View park Sunday. August 13, a large number being from Butte, Deer Lodge and Philipsburg. With a program of sports that in cluded races, novelty numbers and a ball game between the married and single men, the day was one of enjoy ment from start to finish. Trask: With people ftrom Butie, Helena, Boulder and the entire parish present, the new church of St. .Tude Taddeus at Trask, between Woodville and Elk Park, was dedicated at 11 o'clock Sunday morning, August 13, by Bishop Carroll. The Mass was sung by the Rev. James G. Tougas, pastor of St. Helena's church and pastor of the new parish. Father Joyce of Butte was master of ceremonies. The sane tuary was occupied by a number of visiting clergymen, among whom were Monsignor Victor Day and Monsignor Joseph Willging of Helena.

DIOCESE OF SUPERIOR Ladysmith: On the feast of the Assumption, a day of special devo tion and significance in the Order of the Servants of Mary, two members of the Sisterhood at St. Mary's Con vent here pronounced their vows.

DIOCESE OF WINONA Winona: Two retreats were held for lay people during the month of August. A retreat for men opened at St. Mary's College on the evening of August 19 and closed on the morning of August 22. The retreat for women was held at the College of St. Teresa on the same dates. Eight students, graduates of St. Mary's College, are to enter the semi nary this fall. These students will at tend seminaries in the United States, Canada and Europe. Among them are the St. Paul Seminary, St. Paul, the Kenrick Seminary, St. Louis, the Mon treal Seminary. A number will attend the American College at Rome. Applications are coming in large numbers for entrance to St. Mary's College the coming scholastic year. If these applications continue as at pres ent, the outlook is that the attendance at St. Mary's will break all records. Although one hundred private rooms have been added to the College in the new buildings, it now appears that the capacity of the buildings will be taxed to the utmost. In a few weeks the authorities of the College declare a 'waiting list" will have to be adopted. Owatonna: Bids have been taken for a new church by the parish of the Sacred Heart. The church was de stroyed by fire and the edifice to re place the old one will be a much larger structure. SCHOOL FIILS CALIFORNIA REFUSES ASSENT TO ANTI-CATHOLIC MEASURE DOES NOT FIND PLACE ON BAL LOT. It is to the credit of the citizens if California that the measure for he abolition of Catholic and private schools, for which a petition had been irculated, has failed to qualify for a place on the November ballot because of the lg&k of .3. sufficient number of signatures. This initiative petition was put into circulation some two nonths ago and aroused a sporadic in erest among a certain class of pre judiced individuals and self-styled latriotic organizations. A Public School Defense League, with a pen hant for fighting windmills, is still wasting energy in issuing pamphlets ind vainly endeavoring to persuade a portion of the populace that the iangers to the public schools are real ind imminent and that their salvation ies in a constitutional amendment for ompulsory attendance for all children between the ages of seven and sixteen. Tuesday, August 8, was the last lay for the filing of petitions in the State house, and on that day it was innounced from Sacramento that al hough thirty other initiative meas ures had qualified for a place on the Fallot, and will be submitted to the lectorate in November, the school petition had failed to find the neces sary 55,000 supporters to bring it suc cess. romuipiSES DOES NOT WANT CONFERENCE ON BIRTH CONTROL. Announcement from London that he next international conference on birth control would be held in Port and, Ore., in 1925, has not stirred any inswering enthusiasm among Port and citizens. When told of the plans it Mrs. Sanger and her associates. Mayor Baker declared that the dele gates would not be welcome. He add d: "I don't know what's the matter with those people. Of all the cities )f the world Portland would be the east receptive to them and their doc rines." Portland, according to the London mnouncement, is "the most central neeting place, now that the propa ganda front has swung to the Far Blast and the United States." Mrs. Margaret Sanger, leader of the birth control forces, visited Portland '.n 1916 in the interest of her propa ?anda and was arrested when she at tempted 'to address a public meeting. She was acquitted, although three men were fined at the same time for listributing her birth control litera ture. FIRST MASSJ ONTARIO The Holy Sacrifice of the Mass was offered for the first time in what is now the Province of Ontario 307 years ago August 12, and a monument com memorating that event has been un veiled recently upon the site of this early manifestation of Catholic life in America. Pere le Caron, a com panion of Cham plain, celebrated this first Mass at Caraghouha August 12 1615. A monument in the form of a great granite cross was unveiled at Carag houha, August 7, by Archbishop Neil McNeil of Toronto. The Archbishop celebrated Mass in commemoration of the first time the Holy Sacrifice was offered up in Ontario. I "V -i'K THE CATHOLIC BULLETIN, AUGUST 26,1922 RECALLS HUMBU SAINT DIVORCE IN GEKMANY ST. GERMAINE COUSIN'S HOUSC SAVED AT SALE TO LIQUIDATE ESTATE—TO ERECT BASILICA. The house in which Saint Germaine Cousin lived at Pibrac, near Toulouse, France, has been placed on sale in the courts of Toulouse in order to liquidate an estate. Fortunately it has been purchased by a notary of the city who intends to preserve it and keep it open for the devotion of the faithful. It is a very humble little house, the home of a shepherdess, for Saint Ger maine Cousin was an humble maiden. Persecuted by a step-mother, she nevertheless set a marvelous example of faith, piety, patience and charity. During her lifetime she performed many miracles: the wolves which abounded in the forest of Bouconne never touched a single sheep of her fold and the Courbet river, which often overflowed, never prevented her from going to church lor her devA tions. Germaine Cousin died June 15,1606. Her body was interred in the church at Pibrac, opposite the pulpit, and silence enveloped her name and mem ory until 1643. A vast basilica is now under con struction to replace the present church of Pibrac, which is not large enough to accommodate the pilgrims. The present church was built two hundred years ago on the site of the smaller edifice in which Germaine Cousin prayed. TO POLISH RELIGIOUS CONFRATER NITIES FLOURISH IN GERMANY —STRIVE TO PRESERVE NA TIONAL IDEALS. There are ninety-three Polish re ligious confraternities in West Ger many, according to statistics recently given in the "Posener Jageblatt." The Poles are well organized for the conserving of Polish ideals and for the organization of the Polish emi gration to the mother country. A Po lish central committee, which has the care of school children, as well as of widows and orphans, makes it a prac tice to send the children to Poland during the holidays. The aim of this central committee is to prevent the Germanization of the Polish children. In sixteen places, Mass is said every Sunday and in other places on dif ferent Sundays at intervals of from three to six weeks. A Catholic Polish priest, Father Rolewski, has been sta tioned in Westphalia, and many Ger man priests interest themselves in the teaching of the Polish language. Even before the war the German bishops selected priests for the Polish population and even made arrange ments to send the children to Poland for some time to learn the Polish lan guage. Lessons in Polish before the war were given secretly, but now they are given in many of the smaller Po lish schools, and even in' the German schoolrooms. There are about one hundred Polish schools, with 12,000 PUpilS. ,1 I COLLEGE SHIS GROWTH ST. JOSEPH'S PURCHASES TRACT FOR NEW OVERBROOK SITE. St. Joseph's College, a* Jesuit insti tution established in Philadelphia in §51, has purchased a fourteen acre tract in Overbrook which is to be the site of the college department in the near future. The present plant will be retained for the use of the prepara tory department. College buildings, the total cost of which will be $1,000,000, will be erected on the new site in Overbrook, according to announcement made by the Rev. Albert G. Brown, S. J., presi dent of the college. Father Brown declared that the acquisition of the new site was made necessary because the present accommodations of the college have been outgrown by its en rollment. It is expected that within five years there will be 500 students in the collegiate department and 1,200 in the preparatory school, according to the college officials.

In 1920 there were 59.1 divorces per 100,000 persons as opposed to 26.6 per 100,000 persons in 1918. During the war divorce decreased considerably in Germany. The pres ent increase is due to the earty and hasty marriages entered into during and after the war. The number of divorces is highest in the great cities. Hamburg with 223.6 per 100,000 leads in divorces. Berlin, with 219.7 per 100,000 is next. Saxony has the high est number of divorces, by percentage, of any state, with 686 per 100,000 persons. i «r 'A .«*• alMk 1 Minnesota State Fair September 2 to 9, 1922 Vice Pres.
