around the world Pope Plus has appointed the Rev F C Kelly LL D and the Rev A E Burke LL D to be Presidents respectively of the Catholic Church Extension Society in tho United States and In Canada They are the first Papal nominees for this office as it is only a few months since the society was taken under direct control by tho Holy See which appointed a Cardinal protector in the person of Cardinal Martlnolll There was a question as to the reappointment of two Presidents as the new statute prescribes that a President of the so ciety can not be reelected after serving five years but the

songs of the old heathen festivals and the custom of children and even grown people going about from house to houseand singing them at the door on Christmas eve and being reward ed with Christmas cheer and Christ mas spending money is maintained- In many parts of Europe at the present day Many collections of these quaint mediaeval carols wore made from time to time but of tho oldest of such collections but one sheet remains and it contains only twq It is carefully preserved in the Bodleian library at Oxford as Is also a collection of Chrlstmasse ICar lies published by Wynklh de Horde In 1531 Later collections of these old Christmas hymns of van ous nations have been published in our own country One of the French carols Noels wasissued at Poitiers In 1824 one of English at London In

triumphed over the Union cohorts by a majority of 123 seat in Parliament Tho standing of the parties at the close of the polllni was as follows- Government Coalition Liberals 270 Laborltes fortythree Nation alists seventytwo Independent Nationalists ten total 395 Unionists 272 I ICoalition majority 123 will not meet until after the Christmas holidays butII the opening sessions will be with interest by all parties Liberals through Premier Asquith have been pledged to homo rule for Ireland but oven the most sanguine do not believe that such a measure I can be passed Inside two years so hedged about with red tape is the machinery of British A London correspondent governmentl I The Liberal Government Is returning with a clear majority to insure its being able to carry through programme Tho veto measure 11IS be passed and the Lords will accept it They will doubtless seek to Introduce amendments but finally they wll bow to the Inevitable and accept it Mr Balfour has admitted that the veto measure Kill be passed and that the Lords will do Just as they did with the reform bill and several other measures that they swore they would never accept and then accepted The Unionists are iPrognop1tlcaUI baseless Notwithstanding the triumph of tho Liberals their Joy will be short lived unless they deal fairly with tho Irish Nationalists Mr Red moud has gone back with additional followers and can count on the aid of at least three of the Independent Nationalists in a pinch In other words lIe can rely upon seventysix I votes These withdrawn from the Liberal coalition forces would place tho Unionists In supremacy Mr Redmond and his followers are in earnest In their demands for home rule and the measure must be along broad and liberal lines February 5 Is the time set for Parliament to open and the an nouncement is made that the Govern ment will immediately introduce the bill for Uniting tho Lords veto power But the debate on the Kings address will occupy ten days so the but can not be sent to the House of Lords until Easter Although there has been much wild talk by some of the Tories about resistance to the bill and even about revolution it Is confidently believed the Lords will accept the bill without putting PremIer Asqultk to the necessity of even asking the King to create 600 nbw Piers to carry tho bill through the House of Lords The Peers wrested the Magna Charta from King John and the Commons can wrest nioro privileges from the Pets One notable feature of the recent election is tho failure of the OBrlenltes campaign against Red mond Although they had more than a score of candidates in tho field the OBrlenltes failed to increase their strength Timothy Healy the man with a chronic grievance has been left without a seat and Healy is re garded as OBriens ablest leader OBrien is very sore over the result nor does he hesitate to show his chagrin He threatens to move for a Parliamentary inquiry into tho al leged Intrigues of his opponents with Dublin Castle Let him The Red monitcs have nothing to fear from such an inquiry Mr pBrien and his follpwers have been beaten on their merits Whatever modicum of patri otism OBrien once had he has II dragged In the mire With an Irish Parliament in Dublin OBrien and his followers will bo relegated to a de servod and odious oblivion I CHILDREN ARE CATHOLICS I It will interest many to

MANY EMBRACE TRUE fAITH Tho arrival of the Rev Xavle Sutton C P of Louisville in our midst to conduct a two weeks mis sion for tho Catholics and non Catholics of our town and surround ing country was Indeed a benediction of God to our people A new church at a cost of 30000 batd pastortbo opened with a mission for Cath olics and nonCatholics To find sa missionary with the training and experience necessary to conduct a nonCatholic mission successfully is by no means easy A member of th congregation who had tho good fortune of hearing the famous Passion 1st missionary Father Sutton suggested him as the man qualified In every way to fill the bill Application was made to the Superior of the Passonlst order with the result that Father Sutton was authorized to conduct our mission At first when the mission to non Catholics was suggested by the pastor to the leading members o1 tho congregation they unhesitatingly and unanimously declared that they wore confident that we would not have a dozen nonCatholics In attendance Some Catholic laymen are pessimistic in their views about missionary work among nonCath olics They will say It Is useless to try to explain the truths of Catholicism to Protestants They have little or no religion and they want none This Is a very false and unjust attitude to assume toward retlglonUi of God and the Broad of Life but they have none to break it to them How can they ever come to a knowledge of the Catholic church and her divinely instituted sacraments if priests and people keep their holy faith bottled up within themselves The pastor believed that untold good would result not only to Catholics but even to nonCatholics if a course of lectures were delivered on the leading tenets of the Catholic faith Ho was optimistic from the first his optimism prevailed One thou sand invitations were mailed to non Catholics containing a list of the subjects upon which the reverend lecturer would discourse each eve ning also stating that a question box would be placed In tho rear of the church for the purpose of giving nonCatholics an opportunity of asking questions about the doctrines and practices of the Catholic church The thing worked like magic The missionary spirit seized the entire community In shops offices rail road circles and on the street corners nothing was discussed during the entire two weeks but the lec tures to nonCatholics by Father Suttou The deepest interest was aroused and it continued to grow from the opening to the closing eve= nlng Tho large church was crowd ed every night with a serious and appreciative audience their very attitude showing that they were vitally anxious to know the truths of Christianity as they were revealed by Jesus and preached by his apostles Night after night many non Catholics drovo seven or eight miles to hear the lectures In the town of Wentworth fourteen miles from Monett a number of nonCatholics made application to tho ticket agent at Monett to have the train that arrives at Wentworth at 11 stop In order that they might be able to attend the lectures and re turn the same night Their efforts were successful One of the number did not believe in hell Echoing the predominating vIews of those out side the Catholic church he said I Man hits his hell here upon earth IE his own conscience There is no place of punishment in tho life to come When bo joined his com panions after hearing Father Sut Iton lecture on Hell ho said to them Boys if I believe in God and 1 revelation I must believe there Is a hell to punish the wicked I The novel feature of the question box appealed to the nonCatholics Questions wore asked pertaining to almost every doctrine and practice of the church which the missionary answered Jn a manner which re vealed a high order of Intellect and a mind bubbling over with wit and humor A lady asked Why do Catholics lay a corpse with candles I have hoard said the missionary got a hen laying an egg but I have never heard of a Cathollo laying a corpse This Is but a ample of the many questions asked which called forth sallies of wit from the lecturer All the questions asked were of a serious nature many showing earneet thought and inMttlftd minds The folowlnr wee ound In the question box the losing evening WJMc would yqu dvdoe me to 4o I west to lie a Ukolto 1ntCDOt die Tpart- Wdttld punish me I MrUlnly eay I Joyed your lectures and I have beard you every night Your lecture havo led me to the light of truth 1 know your crown of glory will be brighter because of tho good you have done in enlightening mo and many others by making clear to us tho path that leads to God You lectures are now over but wherever you go the blessings of me and my companions shall follow you Man nonCatholics havo already ex pressed their desire of receiving in oxtpected that in the near future a llarge number of those who attended the lectures will be received into tho church Over 200 copies of Clear- Ing the Way were distributed to nonCatholics The Catholics are full of pride and rejoice that thel faith is better known and better appreciated The lectures have cer- tAinly established a more kindly and friendly feeling between Catholic and nonCatholics and have com pletely changed the attitude of Protestants toward the church and her doctrines The general verdict of all is that the mission has don untold good in the town of Monet for the Catholic religion Father Sutton Is a scholarly and acompllshed orator Ho possesses a fine personality and a deep bass voice which carries his pointed arguments to the heart as well as to the mind of his hearers His subject are timely well chosen and vital dealing with mans duty hero tc God to home and to society Nc one can hear him discuss the momentous questions of Marriage and Divorce The Homo and the Family The Existence of Hell and The Mission and Antiquity ol beinifilledhimself and the church of which he has been a standardbearer in half tho States of the Union Tho con summate ability with which he handled tbo various lectures hii solicitude for those outside the fold of the church his gentleness and re finemon modesty and kindliness I mako him all things lo all men I He Is doing valuable service to his country and to his creed He places the Catholic church on a pedestal of honor and integrity so exalted in the minds of his hearers that no slanderer can ever dethrone her I Mpy the Lord make frutful his labors In the future as Ho has in the past and may Ho spare him multos annos to the glorious adII to which ho has devoted his life Tho Rev Xavier Sutton

Lafayette Ind which is now the mother house of the order in America A band of six nuns from Germany was the nucleus that formed the present large community One of that band of six Sister Augusta is

skin of somo American citizens Tho Junior Order is taking all the credit to itself for tho election of the new School Commissioners but as a matter of fact it was a coalition of the Junior Order and the Republicans that pulled two Commissioners through The Republican ward and precinct captains worked hand In hand with representatives of the Junior Order on election day and tho patriotic native Americans sacri ficed two of their own candidates to curry favor with their Republican allies The Kentucky Irish Ameri can stated during the campaign that the Junior Order had combined with the negroes and other Republicans to put over certain candidates This was indignantly denied by the Louis ville EveninKTost when that paper was fullyaw ithat such a combinA- tion of interests had been formed because tho editor was in the con fidence of the leaders Since the election the officers of Banner Council Jr O U A M calls on their whatIletters yet recently a Judge In Now York sent a man to prison for man ing an anonymous communication to the editor of a paper Some editors are always serious and the New York journalist must have been un usually gftar to hArefakon the writer of the scurrilous letter into the courts Anonymous letters are the toy weapons of midnight assassins liko the A P AB Junior Order and kin dred elements Very often the authors of these unsigned communications take themselves seriously and expect others to do so In nine tynine cases out of 100 the authors of anonymous letters advertise their Ignorance They fall to state facts and they can neither write grammatically nor spell correctly Every editor has had more or less of these unsigned missives to handle As a rule they laugh and toss tho communications into the waste basket be cause the editors have long since found out that the man who is afraid to sign his name to a communication Is mentally morally and physically crooked Tho Kentucky Irish American does not desire to force any member of the Junior Order Into the Cath olic church but it is unequivocally opposed to members of the Junior Order proscribing citizens on ac count of alien birth or denying them the right to worship God In their own way Glance over tho roster of any of the Junior Order councils and you will be struck with the names Nearly all of them show that they are of foreign ancestry Some of them can not even speak

Liberals themselves rortunately freed from the old Liter + 1 Unionists seem earnest in tur- in regard to home rule and advanced abcr measures The powers of the Peers must be curtailed for the benefit
