Wearies Any One Brings a Cheer and Happinos Which Lasts the Year Round BRIEF HISTORY OF THE DU Christ is born the great Anointed Heaven and earth his praises sing O receive whom God appointed For your Prophet Priest and King Hasten mortals to adore him Learn His name to magnify Till In Heaven ye sing before him Glory be to God most high The history of Christmas is the history of the Incarnation which has proved the hope of every ago The story of the Nativity is ono of which the world never wearies It puts into the hearts of vast multitudes a cheer that lasts all the year round Christmas seems to have its earliest mention by St Clemens of Alexandria born about the middle of the second century and St Chrysostom says that from the very commencement the Western churches had kept December 25th as the feast of the Nativity- In the fourth century the Eastern churches which had observed January 6 accepted the December date thus making the feast of the Nativity coincide with Epiphany St Chry sostom writes that In A D 386 the Nativity had been observed at Antioch This change was affected by the Holy Roman See while the Roman Emperors declared that separate days should bo set apart for the two great festivals of Epiphany and the Nativity p In the days of Charlemagne Christmas tide was observed for forty days and Alfred the Great was another who wall distinguished for his love of the sea sonIreland was never behind In the observance of the day In Joan the monks In early agar kept the season religiously and the Spaniards Portu guese and French have observed the Nativity for ages In America the Nativity was first observed by the French The English first observed the day on the Ken nebec in 1607 At Plymouth on Christmas Day 1622 It is recorded by Bradford that the people found it against their conscience to work and so went to play in English fashion In Massachusetts in early days the people being severely Puritanical legis lated against all observance of the day Recognition of the day directly or Indirectly was rank Popery How things have changed Now in the metropolis of Boston over half the population are Catholic and to be sure Christmas is observed religiously not only by Catholics but by many of the descendants of the Puritans On May 11 1659 the Legislature of Massa chusetts passed a law obliging men to labor on Christmas Day and inflicting a heavy fine on all who might observe the feast At that time there were a few Episcopalians who wanted to ob serve the day It was not until 1681 r that the law walt repealed Thank the Lord we never have had any such laws as this in Kentucky Christmas has been observed in tho Dark and Bloody Ground since the time of Daniel Boone The Irish pioneers who came to this State ob served the day as was fitting Their descendants continue to do so On Christmas Day 1306 the great festival of Christmas will be observed more generally than It ever was before by all denominations There are in the great city of Louis vllle thirtythree Catholic churches The regulations of the church permit a priest to offer up the holy sacrifice of the mass three times on Christmas Day On no other day in the year Is this permitted to be done On Christmas Day it is customary to bo liberal with alms giving and as the times are prosperous contributions this year will bo more generous than ever It is a season when good will toward men should truly prevail The usual Christmas services will beheld in the Catholic churches with a high mass at 5 oclock in the morn Ing At the Cathedral St Louis Ber trands St Patricks St Boniface St Martins St Anthonys and the other largo churches there will be masses every hour until 10 oclock but in the smaller churches three are the most that will bo celebrated MOURN HER DEATH Miss Nellie G Coleman a talented young woman of literary accomplish ments and well known In Catholic circles died suddenly at 7 oclock Tuesday morning at her home 933 Seventh street While her death was unexpected it was not wholly a sur prise as she had been an Invalid all her life Recently her condition be came worse and it was realized tha- she could not long survive She had heart truoble with asthma and

Coleman connected with CarQns city directory Her funeral took place Wednesday afternoon from the Cathe dral PRIEST AND UNIONS Asserts They Are Countrys Best AntiPovertySociety Addressing a meeting of the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers at Baltimore a few days ago Father M J RIordan declaring In words that have since gone round the country- I believe in the principles of labor unions Their primary aim Is to secure good wages and good wages means prosperity for merchant and banker and larger offerings to the church and charity Labor unions area countrys best antipoverty society since good wages and prosperity are synonymous The workman who refuses to join a union helps to retard the betterment of all wage earners and superintendents who re fuse to deal with union men do not promote the best Interests of stock holders The best paying concerns in the world employ union labor and make periodical contracts with the unions representatives The theory that trades unions by establishing a uniform rate of wages discourage the better man and produce a dull medi ocrity is as one of the professors of political economy at Johns Hopkins University has said Only a theory and has never received statistical demonstration Even if it were a fact it would yet be bettor that 108 men should receive 5 a day than that ten men should get 10 a day and the other ninety men only 2 a day It Is better to strengthen ninety weak men than to increase the strength of ten strong men It has been said that labor unions are trusts Rightly administered there Is nothing objectionable in a trust whether of labor or business If men shaped their conduct In Indus trial and public life In accordance with the teachings of Christ or even with the ethical principles generally lived up to In private life there would be less objection to trusts than to competition Industrial competi tion means an enormous waste of ef fort and material whose ultimate ef fects Is to increase the burden upon the shoulders of labor Broadly speaking it is war and is opposed to the Christian Idea of brotherhood A parent does not send a half dozen children to perform the same errand Why should a nation which may be regarded as one huge family employ a half dozen railroads pipe lines or factories to do the work of one OFFICERS ELECTED St Josephs German Catholic Orphan Asylum In Good Hands Last Sunday

completed for the usual Christmas celebration which always Includes a fine dinner and tree loaded with toys and good things for the little ones MODERN MISTLETOE Prominent in the Christmas revels and with the holly most essentially Chrlstmasy of all the plants used was the mistletoe With us the old significance and sacredness have gone leaving but charm enough to give the well known privilege to

sometimes but never could be persuaded to do so if a British officer chanced to take part in the game There was a strange concldence at a trial which took place in Lifford Courthouse in 1817 The Judge was Doherty the prisoner was Doherty his solicitor was Doherty the man slain was Doherty and many of the witnesses had the same surname The prisoner was found guilty and was sentenced to hang in Lifford jail in side a month It was then remem bered that he was from the parish of Gartan and that St Colum Cllle had prophesied that no person born in Gartan parish would ever be eerytiling but a

requires It is announced by the General Man ager that a voluntary raise in the wage of all shop employes has been made commencing December 1 This action of the L N railroad is to be commended but it is no more than other great railroad systems have done within the past six months As the General Manager of the L N well and truly says the other lead Ing railroads find that it is difficult to secure good men without an increase In compensation and the L N desires to be in line by giving its em ployes as much as any other railroad else they would be without competent mechanics to look after their shop business for they would go to other roads for an advance If the L N did not grant it It may be said for the L N railroad that it treats its shop employes with consideration and respect hence many

Sixtyninth started to the front and from that day to its return Its record in the field was a monthIterrecruited meanwhile and known as leaghers Irish Zouaves followed the Uxtynlnth to the frost The regi meat fought splendidly at the battle u J of Bull Run Corcoran was wounded upon the field and taken prisoner with some of his staff by the enemy The charge of the Sixtyninth stripped of knapsacks and overcoats across the open country in a brave but unfortunately vain attempt to capture the Confederate batteries was pronounced as gallant a feat of arms ns any that had ever been per formed In the brave days of old Meaghers Zouaves suffered deperate ly their gallant Captain who was Acting Major had his horse shot from under him but the Intrepid rider im mediately bounded on his feet and

Hancocks division of the Second Corps of the Army of Potomac commanded by that most skillful General and most Illustrious of American soldiers Major Gep George B Mc Clellan Among the great battles par ticipated in by the Irish Brigade In rapid succession were Fair Oaks Savage Station Malvern Hill An tletam and Fredericksburg The valor displayed by men and officers on these memorable fields must

eloquence and encouraged by the Intrepid daring of their idolized leader mindful of the wrongs which exiled them from their native shores grateful to the fair land that welcomed them to home and liberty there was no danger they were not ready to face no suffering they were not prepared to endure no odds too great for them to encounter Some idea of the terrible havoc from which the Brigade suffered may be formed when it is remembered that at An tietam alone the killed and wounded among officers and men numbered a total of 540 and that five more than that number or 545 fell in the his

plastering work In Louisville It comes to them unsolicited Every architect and builder will tell you 11 you have a house to build Let Barney Campbell do the plastering He Is honest and straightforward He does good work This is a compli ment not often paid to a contractor but Barney Campbell is straight goods as the saying goes He is the oldest living plasterer in Louisville In 1851 he helped plaster the Cathedral of the Assumption No one else that ho can recollect who worked on that great edifice is now alive He plastered the City Hall the County Court House and all of the big public buildings and his work was all that could be desired- A few years ago Mr Campbell said to the writer I have quite a busi ness I leave everything now to my sons I am going to take things easy but Barney Campbell can be seen every morning on the streets at 7 oclock looking after things He cant help it He likes to work The firm of B J Campbell Sons make a famous plaster which is now used on many public buildings They have factories on the river near First street in this city and also Ip Jeffersonville Ind The demand for their goods is great It looks now like Barney Campbell would be

Solving ill VfxntlniiH Social Priiblrm GelltJfllrll Pity Patience Am LoveareTbings Positive ly Needed Uplifting of the Poor DUcuHe by Ml n Katherine F jlltrhhlitley AN INTERESTING PAPER TO READ Katherine F Mullaney Intelligent ly discusses Womans Mission In in recent article In the Boston Pilot She calls attention to the fact that thisGIs the age of Socialism the leveling of social barriers either by pulling down the rich and powerfu or the uplifting of the poor and weak It is with the latter subjec the writer deals for she truly couI tends that woman was chosen by Dl vine Providence for every mission where gentleness pity patience and love must be the influences ttb achieve success Miss Mullaney calls attention tto the fact the the vast majority of the emigrants now coming to this coun try aside from the Hebrews are Catholics The problem therefore of looking after them devolves upon Catholics When the church takes up a problem it never gives 1It up unsolved and it Is now turning Its attention to modern social work In a manner that bespeaks suoh activity as will render Protestant effort for Catholics people futile They cannot hold their own peo plcand their Illusions regarding success with ours are fast disappear ing In this same direction Social benefit even in some large church mission house are no longer dispensed only as the reward for a betrayal of conscience The tactic now are less aggressive and the result is negative success They must needs be content now with the knowledge that their Catholic beneficiaries have become like them selves a nonOhurchgolng contingent and this brings us to the grea question What are we Catholics going to do about this great fact tha is staring us In the face While iiIt is magnificently true that our churches are filled to overflowing at ever mass of the five and six masses on every Sunday in every parish it IiIs also truetoo truethat the slur districts are stagnant moral pools where tens of thousands of our Cath ollcs are living without God without religion without moral activity of any kind Social settlements with their reading rooms their entertain ments their Innumerable materla benefits have appealed to the selflsl part of mankindnot In vain Hu man nature Is apt to like what con duces to its pleasure and comfort and to prefer the sourse whence then good things flow While nothing 1III said now to antagonize Catholic Instincts inuendo is not lacking Why does not your Church which Is so rich do as much for you ai we do is a very common remark To the ignorant Catholic it is a very troublesome question The Church In America has al last emerged from the pioneer state and is now a mighty force in the land New churches and schools and institutions are built and well ugh paid for therefore she Is ready to grasp this new work so called md concentrate her attention upon it In devoting her energies to so clnJ work she is but reverting to the custom of happier times when the world under her beneficent sway was taught that every man should give of his abundance to his poorer brethren and every ladys aduca lon Instructed her In the sweet arts of almsgiving and the welfare of the poor was a matter of conscience The Church recognizes that ro tation alone may solve the slum roblem for it is a question of eter sal Interests at stake No mere ilrellng however philanthropic can teal with immortal souls The day rill come when religious orders will take up this modern idea devoting hemselves absolutely to its perpetuation and perfection Then will the problem be solved effectually In every age there have been moral needs to tax and test the resources of the Church but over and always the need has been supplied by he ale apostles whose souls responded to the call of Christ in His suffering opes and whose lives and bllltles were given generously for tbe souls dear to Him As it has bee so it will be The vineyard of the Lord in time will have its con crated workers and the wilderness of the slums will blossom as a garden under their care Miss Mullaney discusses the subject at great length and very enter= alnlngly Of course her discourse ppllea mostly toblg cities but

Over the Entire World Some of Them Have Settled in Tills Country and Are Welcome Those Who Came to St Louis Exposition Have Re mained AND THEY MAKE GOOD CITIZENS All the world admires the brave stand taken by the Boers of South Africa against the British empire in the memorable war which did so much to show the world what a small nation can do to preserve its integrity when stacked by n more powerful one In the United States the sympathy of the people was with the Boers and many will be glad to hear that an important contingent of Boer veterans have settled in this country They certainly are most taclcoine Recent investigations made by the New York Evening Post as to whither the selfexiled Doer veterans located after the war has brought to light some surprising facts not generally known and now for the first time made public Some of them went to German West Africa but the expedition proved a failure Others settled in Argentine but the land set aside for them was unfertile and the cli mate uncongenial and most of them returned to their old home Still another detachment located in Mex ico and it seems that they fared better than the others But from all accounts ho most contented of all the Boer exiles are those who have found a home in the United States The Boers who came to the Louisi ana Purchase Exposition with an exhibition are now permanent resi dents of this country They were left penniless at the close of the exposi tion but they sought employment and easily obtained it Some of them are in the lumber trade in Georgia and the rest are engaged in farming In Louisiana Mississippi Missouri and Kansas In New York City Boers cult be found in the department stores and shipping yards while a number of them are making excel lent motormen and conductors on

Street TRADES LA9El COUNCIL LOUISVILLE KY SATURDAY DECEMBER 22 1906 LTHE FRENCH PERSECUTIO r- r The Catholic people of Americ who are heartily in favor of a separation of Church and State look on tin present antics of tIGe French Government with amazement That tbe Atheists and Socialists of that coun tryshould have been able to carry- on persecution iintheir outrageous L phs name of liberty and while pre ending to desire only a separatioi pf State and Church that tbey should have been able to do this by reason of the indifference of o tee great mass of Catholic of France is surprising indeed but hardly more surprising than the quiet approval or open ap plause of some American newspaper that are supported by Catholics as k well as nonCatholics The main reason why the Atheists and Socialist of France have so far won is tha they through the press and by book and on the stump have lonb been al- lowedr to misstate facts and to urg false arguments without being iI promptly met in debate and at tin polls by earnest and able Catholii defenders Thus public opinion has slowly but surely turned against the church In the present fight public opinion in America an influ ence not to be iignored will eithei palliate or approve the French poll tlckns Atheists and Socialists unless the Catholic press and the Catholic laymen here make plain the merit of the Controversy and also their own unqualified contempt of all who give the present French Government their encouragement in this effort to suppress religious liberty while slyly and hypocritically pretending to establish it on a better basis To a wellinformed and unbiased man it is plain that the separation of Church and State in France does riot require the outrageous proceedings now going on In the first place the French Gov erment in the bloody days of the Revolution unjustly confiscated all the property of the church A large part of it if not most of it had been dedicated to religion and charity by private persons from their own means Subsequently Napoleon al lowed a part a small part of this propertymainly the bare churches to be used for the offices of religion and then once more the State paid salaries to the clergy It in excusable now to stop the salaries paid by the State to the clergy thpugh vuicivlc while the conflict is r going on with Socialism and anarchy L but it is outrageous to confiscate those churches and all their equip moist and their treasures which were honerttly accumulated and of com paratifely small value The amount of the church property has been wil fully and grossly overestimated to excite the envy and cupidity of the anarchiatm and the proletariat Furthermore the closing of Catho lie school and the expulsion of nun and monks and clergy can be called nothing fire in tiffsl age but high Kand d fywmny however artfullythe n o f n si d purpose of such actions may be disguised The Atheists and Socialist hope to prevent the present generation of children from bcin ttaught at all by religious men and women so that when these children ave become grown they will have no eliglous convictions and be goo aaterlnl for the manufacture of So ialists and infidels Protestant peo lie who arc silent or approve ough see that this is no mere blow at Io Catholic church it is a blow at Brlstianity and has been aimedbr antiChristian press that hates all 1ms of the Christian religion Bo show how thus propaganda i- fIng carried on and how hypocrit is the pretense that the French ernment is liberal in its treat- t and Is supported in Franc- n by socalled liberal Catholics re we need only cite one of tIle liny partisan and artful dispatches itch are being sent out from Paria mislead American readers In the buricrJournal of Thursday Decem if 3 1006 appears such a telegram hick said That the rank and file of tin Iberal Catholics disapprove of the itransipcnt attitude of the author es at Home was evidenced by tin net that M Martinet editor of the eiinaisnnce and Felix Robin filed or icir own initiative with the Prefect f Police Lepine today an application nder the publicmeetings law of 981 for permission to held religious iieetings in all the churches 41 fartlnet who formerly was an An rchist explains that he and Robin j ho is a street hawker took the tep of making the application in the nterest of public peace etc Think of an Anarchist and a street hawker trying to get under he letter of the law all the churches jf Paris to hold religious meet ngsl What a beautiful pair to hole religious meetings And yet it seems lint they were within tIle letter of the law and were repulsed only because they asked for too many lurches If they ask for only one rig Catholic church they will probably get it It is hoped by the Government that if each church can be turned over to a few laymen they vill run the church like a theater or i concert hall or will at least pay scant attention to priest bishop or- Pope And yet even in this coun try there are newspapers that seemI I to think if they ever think that tIle Popes refusual to submit to such control of the church is unreasonable In one of Louisvilles newspapers I here was an editorial on December I I 12 1000 on this subject and the writer in a hunt for padding material of the usual kind and with a desire to find any reason except the rue reason for the attitude of the church and the Pope professed to relieve in the ridiculous suggestion his this is a political question in which the German Emperors I playing a part and hence our droning contemporary quoted argely from and editorial to his effect from the National He view the well known British Journal which is not well known out of England and even there is not an mportant journal The quotation given was probably not an editorial but the private opinion of some nar owmlnded hidebound English contributor who had the usual British biased way of looking at everything ffecting the Catholic church In his ridiculous quotation from an Jnglish bigot it is said With two opes Pius X and the General of the Jesuits in his pocket Kaiser Wil helm is a happy man and is mnni estlng his joy by showering Black Eagles on ecclesiastical dignitaries This style of absurd irresponsible writing is very agreeable to men who are too lazy or too ignorant to learn tIle facts bearing upon the Catholic church and its principles or too nor rw minded to understand them when explained The man who wrote the English article and the man who quoted it in Louisville were evidently dominated by a dislike of the Catholic church and of Germany or Emperor William the sort of dislike molly due to provincial ignorance or inheritent dullness It is surpria ing but true that most editorial backs in this country get their scant information and the substance of heir editorials on Europena topics from English newspapers and magazines and English dispatches sent from foreign capitals and hence most of our newspapers are a weak eflectipn of English opinion which i 1 always warped by English selfln rest We baveno quarrel with the reach nation but with the present dominant political forces there the men who in the language of Abbe allana

OFFICIAL Judge John McCann Has Served the Public Many Years The position of Judge of the Police Court of Loulsyillo held by the Hon John McCann is one of the most Im portant judicial places In Kentucky and the present Incumbent performs his duties with credit to himself and his constituents More cases come before Judge McCann in one week than are heard by many of the County and Circuit Judges in a year Judge McCann is now rounding out many years on the bench He served long In the Magistrates Courts He first served as Constable then ad Magistrate and then as Senator in the Legislature His record as Police Judge has been creditable to him It Is an exacting position and would put a less experienced man in his grave in a few years Judge McCann how over manages to hold his own and if it were not for occasional attacks of rheumatism he would be on the bench every day in the year As it is he misses but a few days No man in Louisville will get more Christmas greetings than Judge John McCann and he deserves all he gets He Is well on the way to the golden jubilee of hIs service to the people of Louisville which has been faithful to a degree that is almost remarkable NIGHT

er Henry ENGLISH AND SCOTCH CARED FOR During the past fiscal year 880543 Immigrants came to the United States breaking all previous records The greatest landing place for streer age passengers Is Ellis Island Now York harbor No longer In the lead in point of pumbers the Irish Immi gration is still large considering the population at home According to the records In the department of statistics at Ellis Island the Irish Immi grants for the year preceding June 30 1906 numbered 28772 including 6 559 who were here before In the total were 14617 males and 14155 fe males Of these 1171 were under the age of fourteen 23356 were be tween the ages of fourteen and for tyfour and 1245 were fortyfive years or over The entire money brought amounted to 773077 The distribution of Irish Immigrants among the States was somewhat Ir regular New York Pennsylvania Illinois Massachusetts and Connecti cut receiving the larger numbers and In the order given It Is worth not lag however that some went to every State In the Union The Rev M J Henry In an address recently published describes how Irish immigrant girls are cared for at the Mission of Our Lady of the Rosary at Ellis Island which was founded by the Rev John Reardon In 1883 The chief aim from the be ginning has been to guard the faith and morals of the Irish Immigrant girl and if necessary to afford her temporary shelter and hospitality This the mission has accomplished faithfully and well and much other good besides From continent to con tinent its Influence extends Steam ship and railroad companies recognize this and as a result are the more vigilant In protecting the Immi grant The mission Is now estab lished twentythree years and from Its founding to the present every ship that brought Irish Immigrants to New York was met at the landing by one or more of its representatives The girls are interviewed briefly their names and destination recorded and Information helpful to their guidance and safety conveyed A friendly word from the priest whose very presence inspires confidence an assurance that relatives will be notified that with a little patience everything will be well and the heart is happier and the world much brighter All the Irish girls not discharged before 430ln the afternoon as well as those going to points farther than New York but un able to resume their journey are taken to the home and kept free of charge until reputable relatives or friends call for them or until com munication with such is established For those who have no relatives or friends as well for those who have but who wish to get work without delay the mission secures employ ment in good families It is well to add here that Protestants girls from Ireland England and Scotland have often been willing guests and that there never has been nor novel will be the least discrimination shown or Interference with their religious be lief Within the last twelve months the total number of girls received was 1474 and for 337 of these positions were obtained A large number of those who arrived previous profited from the Influence for good which the mission exerts through interviews and correspondenceAnd to how the mission Is supported It was the intention of the founder that in every sense of the word the mission should be a home and not a hotel and that no girl should ever be charged for any stay long or short beneath its roof This rule has been rigidly observed to the present moment The cost of main tenance which Iis very considerable is met chiefly by generous responses to our annual address Through such hearty cooperation the founder and his successors have been enabled to pay off a debt of 70000 on the prop ertyand meet heavy current expenses as well- In the early years of the Republic and indeed down to a

SCHOOLS AND SCHOLARSI Learning flourished In Ireland even before the time of St Patrick It iIsI learned from Caesar that this learning l was not committed to writing but was handed down by oral tradition It was in the exclusive pos session of the privileged classes such an the Druids and Bards These wished above all things to keep thei learning to themselves and to inspire the people with a mysterious nwe for their own power and wisdom Bishop Heal of Clonfert has writ ten a most interesting work on Ire lands Ancient Schools and Scholars The bishop places the Druids in the first order of learningIt has been said by some writers that Druidis was a philosophy rather than a re ligion but this statement can not be admitted against the express testimony of Caesar who must have often seen the Druids both In Gaul and In Britain He asserts most distinctly that they attended to religious wor pubilfca omens and oracles We must bear in mind what Caesar says of the Druids of Gaul and Britain because It is quite evident that the Druids of the three great Celtic nations about this period had practically the sam religion A course of twenty year was required for the profession i Gaul as in Ireland The British Druids In the time of Caesar were very famous both as priests and scholars so that It was customary for the young Druids of Gaul to be sent over to Britain to finish their education The chief establishment was In the Isle of Anglesey anciently called Mona Caesar gave that name to the Isle of Man During the period immediately preceding the ar rival of St Patrick In Ireland It seems highly probable that Mona was occupied by a colony of the Irish Celts It is certain at least thatl very freuent and friendly intercourse took place between Ireland bse safely inferred that if the Druidis of Anglesey was not of Irish origin Irish as well as Gaulish Druids wer certainly educated in that island Tura was the chief sent of Druid Ism of Erin but we also find them at Cruachan in Connacht and In Kil lala beyond the Mayboth royal seats of the kings of that province They accompanied the kings in their journeys and were present some times on the field of battel They were generally dressed In white but wore an inner tunic to which refer dice Is sometimes made They were sworn enemies of Christianity and frequently tried to take St Patricks life by violence or poison Their New Years day was about March 19 andI was deemed as the great tiny on which they eat the mistletoe on the sacred oak The first of May wa I kept an a festival In honor of the Sun God and probably gave origin toI that custom of lighting fires iin honor of the god which was after wards transferred to the eve of Tune 24 St Patrick In his Confession cleverly refers to this sunworshi pas an idolatrous practice That sun he says which at Ills bidding we see rising daily for our sake will never reign and Its splendor will not last forever but those who adore iit will perish miserably for all eter nib The treat November festival called Samuin seems to have been held especially in honor of the side or falrvcods who dwelt in time bosom of the beautiful green hills of Erin and were supposed to hold a festival throughout nil the land on November eve Bishop Ilealy discusses Bards of preChristian times The functions of the Bard or poet was to eulogize and satarize In time the poet be came a pest and a nuisance He was willing enough to eulogize when expected lIberal rewards but 41 heII were disappointed in his hopes or IfIi from any other cause he wished to inflict the last of his satire on any person he never spared the poisoned shafts of his flashing wit Hence Cormac MaeCullinan who knew the tribe well derives File the old Irish word for poet from fi poison and II

missionaries should go to China and other far ort places when this work lies right at our doors There are 3000000 people scattered about in the wild mountain districts of the South To carryon Tin effective missionary work among hem means not the expend tore of hundreds but of thousands ol dollars Special study for this particular field is also required We financialmeansBc lofhat it requires

Catholic missionaries who are going through Kentucky and Temres see declare that they find that re- Blon one of great promise that the mountaineer Is ready to listen is free from prejudice aufl as soon as he understands the Catholic faith readily adopts It The mountaineer wants something substantial and many of them are joining the church The trouble Is there are not enough missionaries or

Lincoln and absinthe shades of green attract attention Filmy tulle Is the feature par ex cellence for the evening gown and metallic embroideries are all the rage for suCh materials Furs are more fashionable than ever If such were possible And the Parisian furrier deems no pelt too costly or too common upon which to exer all the charms of this art Embroidered braids are among the latest

advance Ir wages of from 5 to 10 per cent before the beginning of tho year By Now Years it Is semlofllclally announced 175000 cotton mill employes will re ceive the advance they have been con tending for In fact all over New England an advance of wages is expected at the opening of the year On account of the advance In the price of living It is no more than rea sonable to expect an advance In wages The cotton mills in the East have advanced the prices of all ma terials produced In the factories from 50 to CO per cent and it Is but reasonable to expect that they should ad vance wages at

unhealthy climates and frequently returned ruined in heart These returned emigrants usually bought a field and built a house The apparent value of the land was Increased by their often paying twice and three times its real value and the wages of laborers rose but agriculture made little progress as the small proprietors were lacking inI capital and knowledge The number of emigrants from thc Southern provinces in 189400 ave aged 82000 In 1005 the average was 244000 They sent home millions of money wages rose the value of lamI increased usury disappeared and the desire for education grew

CHRISTMAS CRIB Most Beautiful Devotion Had Its Origin With the Lowly St Francis of Assisi in the Year 1223 It is fitting that we should owe the most beautiful of Christmas devo tions to St Francis of Assisi the browned robed mendicant whos- passage through the hills and valleys of Umbria has left a golden memory r iii the heart of the world for 700 years lie was the apostle of sun plicity this gentle saint who soulsi speak so wisely to his little brothers the birds who could learn such wonderful lessons from his little friends the fishes He found God everywhereI and saw Ills likeness in everything He sanctified the commonplace see ing the symbol of the Creator in least of Ills works blessing the beasts praising God In the flowers loving every created thing He loved the lambs because they reminded him of the Lamb without spot an- r we read that when he met them be ing led to the shambles he wept tenderly and would not go until he had redeemed them from death One day seeing a poor little sheep walking i- p in the midst of a troop of goats he said s sadly to his brethren It was thus that our Saviour walked in the midst of u troop of goats when with th Jews und Pharisees Ills friar- wished I to buy the sheep to save thei gentle master from distress but they had no money A passing dealerone of those opportune provi tenses that follow the footsteps of- Francisseeing the embarrassment of the brothers paid for the sheep Is it any wonder that such a man should have been seized at once with the Idea of the human beauty of the Incarnation Is It any wonder that he should have seen In the Nativity not the coming of the King not the unspeakable mystery of time redemp tion hut the birth of a Babe in Bethlehem St Francis may not have originated the devotion of the crib it is one of those beautiful heart growthn by which Christianity has nourished the human soul from the beginning but lie at least popular 4 ized it In Italy Christmas was his c spiritual holiday It was the feast of loVe and St Francis Is the Worlds greatest preacher of the love of God His brothers asked him one day if it was right to eat meat on Christ mas when the feast fell on Friday Assuredly answered Francis he of all saints the closest to the Passion he of the Stigmata assuredly I would even wish that princes and great ones of the earth strewed the country and the highroads with meat and cheese In order that the birds and the beasts ftIIe Held Rhoulfl have their share In so great a feast And ho began to consider how le IIllould brinK tile ghrlstmasUt1 ntIIto Hie hearts and vivid to

Pontiff his Idea of time Christmas crib and his desire to celebrate the birth of the Saviour with his brethren to gather together the populace from all loresthat no heart In Italy HIlllllIU be able to resist it Wtih the Pontiffs blessing and godspeed he started forth the joy of Christmas already singing In his heart It was time vigil of the feast before he arrived in Grecio He had minute instructions to his good friend Giovanni Velltu and he found everything in readiness In accordance with his pious plans An altar had been built in the open air A skillful craftsman among the brown robed brothers had fashioned a crib and grouped around it the ox time ass everything ns the evangelist hail described It and tradition had pictured it In the stable at Bethle hem The shrine was in the heart of the wood tied at midnight the Friday Minor led thence a strange company of mountaineers and peasants awed and silent who craved leave to go to Orecio to celebrate time Christmas festival They lighted the way through the block aisles of tho forest with flickering torches As they proceeded they broke the mys terious silence with song repeating over and over again the haunting verses of the Umbrlan Christmas carols their liquid Italian religious melody compared to which our I harder northern hymns of a colder comnvent J I Pars cjfl wap jubilant We are told 1 tI 1et itti refrain from shed

touch of the dramatic instinct or ut least had wel devel oped that sense of the picturesque which is so strong in all true sons of Italy The Italian immediately groups his ideas Into pictures he at once seizes upon the right artistic moment to perpetuate an emotion It is for this reason that faith in Italy flowers into so many lovely fancies and that Italy has been the worlds Inspiration and the worlds teacher In art At the midnight mass that fol lowed the procession to the crib t Francis filled the office of deacon and preached there in the midst of the trees as he liked best to preach of the birth of the Babe of the angels and the shepherds of the manger anti the oxen of all the dear traditions that hail glorified the cave of Bethlehem tor twelve hundred years that are as near and as clear after nineteen hundred The love of Jesus so welled up In the preachers heart that every time he came to the sacred name lie was obliged to pause for very ecstasy of devotion Ills voice faltered aHif he had tasted a delicious honey says one who writes of him or heard a hidden melody the notes of which he wished to catch The Cavaliere Giovanni Vellta a trustworthy man who had abandoned the career of onus the better to serve Jesus Christ affirmed on oath that he saw a child seemingly asleep over whom the saint bent covering him with kisses and as it were awakening from his slumbers The straw which the apparition touched Is credited with uiterward working several miraculous cures A shape was built on the site of this first Italian crib after the death of St Francis The devotion was taken up as promptly and as ardently as the saint foresaw Ills holy friend St Clare immediately Introduced the custom into all the covents of her order Like St Francis himself she was never so happy as In preparing the crib in meditating with her sisters on the infinite sweetness of the mystery of Bethlehem It is related in n quaint and pious chronicle of Bernard of Bessc that her devotion to the Christ Child once merited for her a proof of the divine favor of the young de vtotee He relates that the sisters of the preparIng mas Only St Clare the victim of n torturing illness was unable to short In the festivities When her daughters went down to the chapel at midnipht to chant the matins of the Nativity she could not control her disappointment and burst into tears She upbraided her Heavenly Snouse with the pious familiarity of those who are flearer the things of heaven than of earth and the Mas ter listened Bernard records that Clare felt herself suddenly transported whether in spirit or In reality she was paver afterwards certain to the Church irf the Sacro Convento She distinctly heard the chantintr voices of the Friars Minor oho dis I smhigl7Tnfmint I received the newborn Ring in the 1 auaC r an- n Blessed Eucharist Whether or not St Clare was favored with such a miracle it iu certain that the devotion of the crib spread over ItalyI and over the world with miraculous enthusiasm Time Bambino is almost u national In stitution in Italy For years In what had once been the capitol of pagan Rome there gathered throngs from all over the country to celebrate the birth of Christianity Then took place the historic procession of the Bambino the jewel set statuette of the Infant Jesus made of olive wood from the garden of Gethsemane and venerated through the year in the Franciscan Convent of the Ara Coeli The Christmas of the North is dif ferent from the Christmas of the Im pulsive the Imaginative peoples of the South The traditions and customs are different but the idea of the crib of Bethlehem Is the same all over the world Its accessories may change with changing climes but the spirit that builds the crib is as uni versal as the mission of the church Time old gospel story is retold every year in every church It is told in picture letters that all alike may take it into their hearts that all alike us children on the verge of life may touch the edges of the
