" Rev. Dr. Pius Mortara has been appointed
to the chair of theology at the University of
Innsbruck." That is a very simple announce
ment, but all the same it will call up a host of
recollections for those who can remember
thirty years back. This Rev. Dr. Pius Mor
tara is the individual who, as a child, was kid
napped from his Jewish parents by the Catholic
Church, and despite civil and moral law never
returned. The boy was raised by the church
and has become a shining light, and some day
may become a Prince of the church or perhaps
even its head. If he shonld ever be Pope, I
hope he will retain his fiunily name and be
known as Pope Mortara Ist It is not such a
long time since the outrage was committed,
but even in that short period, times have
changed sufficiently to render a similar occur
ence impossible. If a man like the present
bishop of Rome had occupied the throne of St
Peter at that time, yonng Mortara would have
been returned to his parents ; if a man like
Pius IX had countenanced the deed at the
present day he would have been sat down upon
by the Italian government in short order.
The rape of Mortara will always be a blot upon
the Church of Rome, but its greatest impor
tance in history will be due to tbe fact that it
marked the end of Roman despotism. A simi
lar occurence will never again be possible in a
civilised country.— Nickerdown in the

Food for the Tiger.—The teacher in a
New York slum Sunday-school was instructing
the kids in a few side questions, with pictures
to match.
"Now, Johnny," she saM to a kid, as she
held up the picture of a royal Bengal tiger,
"whatis that?"
Johnny took one squint at it.
"Dats Tammany," he replied, with pride
and confidence.
The teacher frowned.
"No," she said, "that's a tiger. Do you
know what a tiger is? "
He shook his head.
"It's a fierce animal," she explained, "that
loves to eat up tender little boys like you."
"Hully gee," he exclaimed, "you bet it
don't want to eat me."
" Yes, it does ; it wonld only be too glad to
get such a tender morsel."
"Come off," contended Johnny, "I would'nt
be in it a minute if it likes dat kind. My
mudder says I'm de toughest kid on de block,"
and Johnny settled back and called for "de

FROM WRONG TO RIGHT.
A STORYWITH TWO
SIDES.
Recently, when the Richmond Optic
al Co. was making a catalogue of its
good intentions, it was decided that the
business could not be conducted in the
Right way on the Wrong side of the
street. This first move in the Right
direction has now taken place and the
Richmond Optical Co. is now located
in its new home—lls E. Broad Street.
Our store is more attractive, our
stock largely increased, and our facili
ties for doing a first-class optical busi
ness are unsurpassed. Our experts are
competent to fit the most difficult cases.
