Thirty-four i CAN BE EXPLAINED INTEI, LI- GIBLY THE GUARDIAN ! i And yet the Catholic principle can be.quite intelligibly explained. When a man oncerealizes that the Catholic Church is?the one divinelx instituted religion which all ought to join, it be- comes clear that he (:an have nothing to do with other rel'igions which of their very nature stand in rivalr. and opposition to it. Every other religion, - whatever truth it may contain, is eith- er false in so far as it contradicts the Catholic/religion, or inadequate and defectiw in so far :ts it deni6s or : leaves something out In, particular, the Protestant sects came into exist- ence by an act of revolt against the Catholic Church; and Imwevcr toler- ant and easy-going.they nmy have be- com.e in course of time, they remain rebel-religious and fall into the cate- gory of alien enemies. For this rea- son, just as St. John tells us that we are to have nothing to do with a here- tic, and, not even say Godspeed to him; even so in our more urbane and cul- tured days we have o follow the prin- ciple underlying that drastic' apostolic precept. We can be as civil as w.e like .to people who are Protestants. but We cannot possibly have anything to do with their religious doings Hence arises the principle which forbids w/hat is called qcommunicatio in sacris" As AI Example If some Catholics and Protestants happened to be wrecked in a desert island, there wbuht be no harm in their saying some family prayers to- getheg, provided no Protestantism was introduced into them; for this would be quite a private" convenience, and not connected with any church. But as soon as the official entity of a :Protestant church or denomination qnters in, there the Catholic must say: "I have nothing to do with this non- Catholic institution, nor do I take part in anything which proceeds from it; whether in the way of services, or ceremonies, or concerts got up in aid ), of that church."

MAKING PERFUME In a lecture published by the Royal Society of Arts last week Mr. L. G. Radcliffe discussed modern progress in the manufacture of perfumes--one of the oldest industries ministering to hunmn pleasure. The art of the maker of scents is to preserve the fragrance of some essential oil, usually vegeta- ble, beyond the time when it would succumb to the natural decay of the living plant. Distillation is a mode 0f accomplish- ing this preseyvation, older than his- tory and still being improved by the perfection of apparatus But 'there are essences too del!cate to survive heat and the passage through still and worm; these are captud by spread- ing the fresh blooms on trays lined with fats' or oils, into which the dying flowers slowly breathe their fra- to receive it, and it so becomes the ex- ]elusive privilege of the soldier. In ]that sense it be considered the nmy high sign of the military fraternity, 'and to realize this one must under- stand its purpose and origin. In all armies that sign consists of raising the hand to the cap visor or hat brim. in some :form or other; but always the hand to the head dress. The significance of this lies in tlm origin of tlie salutg, "a, hich take up back to the days Of chivalry--when fair was first put into warfare--as in the case of many other military cus- toms. When a medieval knight rode afield he always wore the vizor of his hel- met drawn down over his face, to be protected against any sudden encoun- ter with an enemy. All knights had painted on their shields and surtouts the coat-of-arms of their houses, which served the same purpose as the various military insignia of-today. So, when a knight mt another whose coat-of-arms he recognized as that be- longing to his own force, he raised the pigeons' eggs, roasted pigeon, crab and mushrooms and iced watermelon juice " d It mission that is to investigate the i grance steeped in some selective sol- question of ownership and guardian- vent. ship of the Holy Plaes in Palestine.'

In weakening steadily, while the Catho- lic Church is gaining in the general esteem, Must Be Well Instructed Timid Catholics may perhaps be helped by such an assurance, and they cannot do this with effect, unless they make it a point to be well instructed ' Catholics who have thoughtfully mas-  tered the meaning of their religion, fact, ninny mistakenly regdrded it as an act of seryilitya forced mark of class recognitiom .,As late as 1916 the (inTent prejudice was reflected by the suggestion of several prominent writ- ers that it. be abolished as an unde- mocratic custom. Fortunately this sad misconception is rare today. The salut ,between military per- sons is a mark of both respect and vizor of his helmet to expose his countenance and show that he was in fact a friend and comrade and not one traveling under false colors As this entailed a degree of risk, the obliga- tion was first on him whose rank was junior. The modern salute has grown out of that custom. When the hand I is t'aised to the cap it stimulates the I last motion of the knight's hand when raising the vizor of his helmet. It is therefore no servile token, but a knightly aet:--HalfStep. i CHINESE DINNER DELICIOUS "Romantic and strange," writes I Alice Grant-Smith in the Daily Mail, "was the iml)ression created by my. firs real Chinese dinner in that char- I acteristieally Chinese city, Canton.
