1 Joo much significance is attached to
I the friendly relations between Cardinal I
Sarto Plus X and King Humbert and I I
I the statement that his appointment as
patriarch was made in accordance with
King Humberts desires I I
I It is true that from the first he at
tended court functions when the king
I was in Venice but that is only natural
because King Humbert was recognized j J I
I as the legitimate king of Venice Tus 1
cany and all the northern provinces of I I

was only in Rome and the other papal I II I
states that his sovereignty was dis j I

In Italy the bishops and priests arc1 j
paid by the government and the king
claimed that it was his prerogative to I
appoint the patriarch of Venice Pope
I > o would not admit of that and with
out consulting King Humbert he ap
pointed Cardinal Sarto This was dis
pleasing to King Humbert and he
said I will not pay this man Snrto
wns appointed in 1SP3 and for chree I
years his salary was paid by the pope i
Then King Humbert also appointed j I
him patriarch and from that time hJs
salary was paid by the government I

In battle
The boy was adopted by the Presby

But happening to be In St Louis on a
certain Sunday afternoon he entered

came strangely interested in the ex

by Father Elet who then chanced to

IX NEARLY every war between sav
IX r 1 age tribes ana ivized powers to j I
day the savages are assisted by I
white men who have become traitors
to civilization Such renegades are
scattered through all the remote cor
ners of the earth
The British troops campaigning in
Somaliland are learning to their cost
I i that the Had Mullah is assisted by 3
t white man familiar with the art of
1 1 modern arfare His name is Karl
t Inger He was an oflicer in the Aus
trian army until a year or two ago
An oflicer Captain Tnorp ot
Engilh ofcer ot
the Yorkshire light infantry who Knew
him at Budapest speaks of him as un
exceptionally brilliant soldier with ji
natural gift for tactics and for com
manding men Inger used to speak bitterly
terly against the English and was fond
of expressing sympathy with the na
tive races in their struggles with civ
ilization He would rail by the hour
against the treatment of the Indians t
in the United States of the Kaffirs in I
South Africa and of the Hindus in
India I
He disappeared from Budapest short
ly before the outbreak in Somaliland
and his acquaintances were not sur f
prised to hear that he was fighting as
a lieutenant of the Mad Mullah Na I
tive spies reported that he adopted the
Mohammedan religion in Cairo and
was taken to the Mullahs camp
through Italian Somalilanrt by some
Arab pilgrims whom he mqt in Cairo
on their return from Mecca I is l as
sorted that he had much to do with
stirrjng up the recent war and per
suading the Mad Mullah to defy the
Curiously enough his qld acquaint
ance Captain Thorp hac been sec
onded from his regiment and attached
to the Somaliland field force as a spe
cial service officer Thus they may
meet face to face in battle In that
case one or the other is likely to go
under for Captain Thorp in common
with the other officers o the British
force has vowed to risk the uttermost
peril to slay this traitor to civilization
who is held responsible for the cutting
up of Colonel Swaynes expedition
some months ago
I is said that Lord Lansdowne the
British foreign minister confidentially
asked the Austiian governmeiii
whether it was true that Inger had
joined the Mullah The Austrian gov
ernment replied that there was reason
to believe he had and added a hope
that if he was caught he woula receive
no mercy
Inger appears to be gifted with the
qualities that impress the savage mind
He is skillful in planning ambushes
and strategems and is especially val
uable to the Mullah because knowing
the effects of rifle and Maxim fire he
prevents the Somalis from madly fac
ing i and being mowed don like
corn as the dervishes were at Omdur
manHe takes care that they shall fight
the British troops in the jungle under
conditions which make the superior
arms of the latter ineffective British
officers say that the trouble at Somali I
land would have been over long ago
but for Karl Inger
I he re caught by native troops
uncontrolled by an officer he would
probably die by slow torturp A Zan
zibar spy who has penetrated to the
Mullahs camp asserts that Inger has
made up his mind to shoot himself
rather than be captured
Another renegade from civilization
and one of ithe most notorious is Os
man Digna the De Wet of the Soudan
He was the righthand man of the
Mahdl and afterwar3 of the Khalifa
Ever since 1SS2 he has been 4a thorn in
the side of the British
For many years he was supposed to
> e an Arab chieftain but Slatin Pasha
found that he is a white man born of
Scottish parents in Cairo I is said
that he was In the employment of the
government of Egypt in his youth but
was cashiered for theft and blackmail
on the complaints of some European
merchants in Cairo
Burning for revenge he went south
and joined the Mtlhdi immediately
after the latter raised the standard of
revolt against Egypt in 1882 He soon
became known as the best general of
the dervishes inflicting defeat after
defeat on the British and Egyptian
troopos massacring whole armies cap
turing cities and devastating many
hundreds of miles of country
lie took no prisoners spared no neu
trals Wherever hisswift cavalry and
camel corps went they left a trail of
desolation behind them
Many efforts were made to capture
or kill Osman Digna but all without
success A former captive in the camp
of the Khalifa says that an Abyssinian
whom he had injured stabbed Osman
violently over the heart
The knife broke in two but Osman
I was uninjured Naturally ignorant
I dervishes thought he was invulnerable
The simple explanation is that he wore
a coat of very fine chain armor under
his burnouse
i I A British officer recently told how he
fought in handtohand pom pat with
Osman when the dervishes broke the
I British square at TelelKebir
I got a thrust with my sword right
home on his chsst said the officer
and it should have gone through him
but confounded chain armor turned
the point of the weapon A rush of the
dervishes then swept ur apart i
I remember him as a very tall and
powerful man with a most ferocious
expression He fought like a madman
HisskJn looks like a white man and I
noticed that his eyes are light blue
When the power of the Khalifa was
utterly broken at Omdurman in 1808
Osman Dignn escaped the slaughter
riding off the field with a small body of
picked horsemen Before the battle was
over Lord Kitchener was bitterly dis
appointed and sent expedition after ex
pedition in pursuit of him Most of his
comrades including the Khalifa were
captured and slain but Osman always
He is now dwelling with the Mabas a I
Mohammedan negro race who are the
ruling tribe in the kingdom of Waclaj
Natives assert that soon after Osman I
found refuge there he conspired with I
Abu Said a son of the former king of
Tadai to assassinate the reigning king I
The conspiracy was successful
Abu Said now rules over Wadai with
Osman as his prime minister The are I
supported by hordes of the finest and
most fanatical native fighting men in
Africa including the remnants of the 1
khalifas forces I
The English and French authorities
in the Soudan expect that Wadai will
give them serious trouble in Jhe near
future now that Osman is there They
fear it will be ihe center of another
outbreak a formidable as the Mahdis
By an AngloFrench agreement made
in March 1899 WaJai Wlas assigned to I
mance But in Africa it is one thing
to assert authority and another thing I
to enforce it
Osman told the natives of the agree
ment and they became indignant and
resolved to fight the unbelievers But
Osman restrained them He has leavneij
by experience the power of a civilised
army and he does not mean to fight
one again until he has a reasonable
hope of success I I
The new sultan of WadaJ has accept 1
ed Turkish suzerainty and IT retQrn
the sultan of Turkev has refused to
recognize the AngloFrench agreement
of 1899 and is lending his Influence in
support of the pl6ts of Osnian Those
who know the man declare fnaf Osijinjv
inspired by his indomitablehatredof
his own race will never rest t1U he
has stirred up another war and
drenched central Africa in blood
The dark continent is full of these
romantic stories of traitors to civiliza
tion One of the strangest is that of
Captain Voulet
He was a French military officer in
tKa employment of the governor gen
eral of French West Africa He had
command ofa column o native troops
in 199 and was ordered to march to
ward Lake Tchad and explore the vast
stretch of new territory which had just
been assigned to France by the Anglo
French agreement I was an impor
tant mission and Captain Aroulet might
have made a name for himself and be
come a second Major Marchand
But he had more ambitious dreams
He was fired by the example of Rabah
the black Napoleon who starting
in life as a slave of Zebhr Pasha be
came the greatest conquerer and mon
arch in Africa and was at that very
moment successfully fighting the
Let us he said to his subordinate
Captain Chanoine become kings in
our own right This country belongs
to the men who take It
Let us carve out an empire for our
selves We have a small army who
will follow us in everything without
asking the reason whv
Chanoine agreed They immediately
threw off their allegiance to France
and attacked village after village and
tribe after tribe with their column of
I Some French noncommissioned officers
cers who objected to this treachery
were promptly murdered Natives were
massacred by hundreds and thousands
until the two renegades established a
reign of terror over a wide area of
the country
News of these strange doings soon
reached the French colonial office and
a small expedition under Lieutenant
Colonel Klobb and Lieutenant Meunier
was dispatched to find out the truth
Klobb overtook Voulet at Sinder in
Damanger half way between the Ni
ger and Lake Tchad
He asked for a parley but Voulet
reused to allow him to approach
threatening to fire on his party Klobb
advanced shouting that he had come
in peace and would not fire Voulet
received him with a volley
Klobb and most of his escort fell
dead Meunier severely wounded was
borne away into the jungle by the sur
vivors and escaped to tell the story
td the authorities
Voulet and Chanoine were outlawed
and a strong expedition sent against

The legend of the Irish St Brendan
and his Monks having discovered
America far back in the early age of
Christianity was thus told by Arch
bishop Healy in his sermon the other
day at the dedication of a new church
in honor of the Saint in Galway
There Is a great mountain that still
bears the name of the Saint some eight
miles west of Tralee rising morE than
three thousand feet over the Western
weaves I was on the summit of that
lone mountain that Brendan built him
self a little oratory and a cell and thero
tip spent two or three years exclusively
in the contemplation of God living with
God and for Him alone There no
doubt as be gazed to the west over the
boundless Atlantic ocran the idea grew
in his mind which he afterwards real
ized of sailing over the old sea as it
was called in the hope of finding the J
land of promise the fortunate islands i
to which reference was made in the 1
literature both of Greece and Rome I
and to which constant references was
made in our own old Irish literature
Brendan heard the x > ld tradition and
iis heart was filled with a great pur
pose of trying to find out these islands
and of preaching the gospel of Christ
to the people that dwelt there if the
message of salvation had not reached I
them over the great ocean He built
himself a large currach boat and I
taking with him fourteen of his Monks I
they sailed the western ocean seeking
tjiis land of promise and for seven
years they sailed they knew not whith
er AVe acn hardly trust the narrative
or ¼ the ancient in all its details but it
was said that under Gods guidance
and fed by Gods fatherly providence
Brendan and his Monks crossed the
Atlantic ocean and were the first to
discover if not the Continent of er
ica at least some at those beautiful
islands in the West Indian seas which
were afterward discovered by that
great Genosese navigator And when
St Brendan landed Gods angel met
him and his companions and told him
that it was not the will of God yet to
reveal these lands to the people of the
East but that it was Gods will that he I
should return home again and preach
the gospel in his native < Ireland I
Let us never forget that the great
I work itself we want done is after all
not done by men but by God himself
i using or not using men as seems to
i him good and therefore that always
I our most effectual working wilj be
I prayer to him that he may be pleased
himself to work A single prayer of
fered in secret to Almighty God by
some devout soul unknown to the
world can effect more than our most
elaborate articles or brilliant and stir
ring editorials God loves the simple
and humble and will do anything for
them The times are dreadful the
dangers are thick and threatening Let
us betake ourselves to prayer as the
surest and speediest remedy

You will find that the mere resqlve
not to be useless and the honest desire
to help other people will in the quick
est and most delicate ways also im
prove yourself
