PECK ilXtX9HB!IPS!li STATESWOMEN VERSUS CHURCHWOMEN Editorial .P' SB -6jPfjS CARDINAL JAMES GIBBONS . 2 Cardinal Jmei Gibbont STATESWOMEN VERSUS CHURCHWOMEN Ily CARDINAL JAMES GIBBONS THIS WORLD is governed more by ideals tlinn by ideas; it is in fluenced more by living, con ereto models tban by nbstraet princi ples of virtue. The model held up to Christian women is not the Amazon, glorying in her martini deeds nnd prowess; it is not the Spartan woman, who made female perfection consist in the development, of physical strength at the expense of feminine decorum and modesty; it is not tho goddess of pagan love, liko Venus, whoso votaries regarded beauty of form and personal charms as the highest type of female excellence; nor is it an imperious Juno. No; tho model held up to woman from the very dawn of Christianity is the peerless Mother of our Messed Redeemer. She is the pattern of virtue alike to maiden, wife and mother. She exhibits the vir ginal modesty becoming the maid, tho conjugal fidelity and loyalty of tho spouse, and tho untiring devotion of the mother. The Sexes Equal Now and Hereafter TA7"OMAN'S origin and destiny are the samo as man's; so is her dig nity ccpial in every way. As both were redeemed by the same Lord and as botli aspire to the same heavenly inherit nnce, so should they be regarded as of equal rank on earth; as they are par takers of the same spiritual gifts, so should they share alike the blessings and prerogatives of domestic life. In the mind of tho Catholic Church, however, equal rights do not imply that both sexes should engage promis cuously in the same pursuits, but rather that each sex should discharge thoso duties which are adapted to its physical constitution and sanctioned by tho canons of society. To somo imong tho gentler sex the words, "equal rights," have been, it is to be feared, synonymous with "sim ilar rights."

It is then that Sauatogen comes as the friend in need to revitalize and uplift the nervous system, to infuse new strength ?nd endurance. Every day, in every land, thoughtful people avail themselves of the splendid tonic and upbuilding properties of Sanatogcn under just such conditions. Hall Came frankly states "that on more than one occasion Sanatoccn has benefited him." Ncaier home. the Hon. Win. C. Adamson, Chairman of the Committee on Interstate and then hearts Foreign Commerce H. R.f reports that he has found Sauatogen valuable to restore wasted energies and to compose the nerves of cases of long-sustained effort and exhaustion." And remember that more than 16,000 members of the medical profession have recorded in writing their observations of the beneficial action of Sauatogen. Write for a Free Copy of "Nerve Health Regained" If you wish to learn more about Sanatogcn bclorc you use it, write for a copy of this book let', beautifully illustrated and comprising facts and information of the greatest interest. Sanatogen is sold by good druggists everywhere, in three sizes, from $1.00 THE BAUER CHEMICAL COMPANY, 25V Irving Place, New York Suffrage, or the right to vote, and the right to hold oflice, are ambitions which some women have, that are really rights of simihirit; and not of equality. Seeking these so-called rights alienate the feminine spirit from its foreordained and guarded haven tliei home. To debar woman from such pursuits as suffrage, or from doing a man's work, or from wearing masculine at tire, is not to degrade her. To restrict her field of action to the gentler avocations of life is not to fet ter her aspirations after the higher and the better. Woman's Superemlncnt Rights IT IS, on the contrary, to secure to her not equal rights, so-called, but those supereminent rights that can not fail to endow her with a sacred influ ence in her own proper sphere; for as soon as woman trenches on the domain of man, she must not be surprised to find that the reverence once accorded to her has been, in part, or wholly, withdrawn. The home whether that home is a palace or a cottage exercises more sway in tlie government of the land or I the uplifting of the people than our houses ot Congress and State legisla tures. Our President, our statesmen and, our judiciary hold the high offices of framing or interpreting or execut ing the laws. But our Christian women wives and mothers hold a higher place, for they mould the char acter of our statesmen and jurists their cjnldhood and instil virtue Our greatest statesmen have loudly and unanimously elaimed their indebtedness to mothers.

The miim" of a child, like soft ened wax, reoeiwith ease the first impressions, which are always the deepest and most enduring. "A young man, according to his way, even when lie is old, hoTwill not depart from it." I. Peter, II.,'2. A child is susceptible of instruction much earlier in life than parents generally imagine. Mothers should watch with a jealous eye tho first unfolding of the infant mind, and 'pour into it tho seed of heavenly , knowledge.
