If a Roman wife has a Protestant husband, do you halt in your opinion as to the results ? Solicitation? Yes, and salesmanship of the very highest order, and the service rendered to the Church, abso- lutely gratis! Do I believe in solicitation ? You bet ] do--of the right kind. I don't be- lieve in solicitation of candidates for ANY of the Degrees of Masonry. Facts show that most of our passen- gers are dead-heads. But when any of you get the solicitation fever, just try it on YOUR FAITH. See how it works. In the meanwhile don't pester me by telling me how the Romans are controlling everything m America. Either do something constructive to stop it, or get off here and stop blow- ing about your Protestant Faith and stop propagating Ku Klux Klans.

M ARRIAGE LAWS We set down here the esntial points of the Church's marriage leg- islation which it is necessary for all Catholics to know: 1. Only those marriages are valid which are contracted before the par- ish priest, or the Bishop of the dio- cese, or a priest delegated by either of these, and at least two witnesses. There will be no marriage at all un- less there be two witnesses--one wit- ness with the priest will not suffice. 2. Marriage of all Catholics (both parties Catholics) before a minister or civil magistrate is no marriage at all. . 3. Marriage of fallen-away Catho- olics (who have become Protestants or infidels) before a minister or a civil nmgistrate is no marriage at all. 4. Marriage of a Catholic to a non- baptized person is never a real mar- riage unless the Church grants a dis- pensation. Such a marriage before a minister or a civil magistrate is no marriage ,at all for two reasons. 5. Marriage of a Catholic to a Protestant ,one never baptized in the Catholic Church) before a minister or a civil magistrate is no main'rage at all. 6. The marriage ceremony, as a general rule, should be performed by the parish priest of the bride. N. B.--The foregoing laws do not apply to marriages in which both con- tracting parties are and have always been non-Catholics. Our motto, The Guardian in Every I Home." II fll ,11 '11 R. H. Sutton, President R. J. Williams, Sect'y and Mgr. L. H. Williams, Vice Pres. F. M. Sutton, Treasurer PLANTER'S LUMBER COMPANY Paris--M. Leon Berard, Minister of Public Instruction, broke a long estab- lished precedent when he presided at the unveiling of a monument to the air hero, Georges Gu'ynemer, at the Stanislas College in Paris. Many years have elapsed since th(. head of the goernment department of educa- tion has presided in person at a meet- mg in a religious school. Georges Guynemer, who enlisted at the age of 20, despite ill health, in the aviation corps, won 56 decisive victories in aerial combat, was cited 23 times in army orders, and disap- peared in 1917 in Fhmders, during' a I pursuit patrol. His body was never] recovered. I In closing, the minister expressed I the wish that the "sacred Union" I might be maintained in the country by I the development of intellectual cultule, taking for his thenm, in this part of his address, the rules of two noted Catholic prelates, Bossuet, the ,famous Bishop of Meaux. and Msgr. Julien, the present Bishop of Arras. "These rules," M. Berard said, "establish the reign of intellectual progress and the peace of the minds of men." CREMATION The Law forbidding Cremation is disciplinary and not doctrinal. The , Church, for good reasons, might per- mit it. Cremation is not necessarily or essentially wrong from a moral point of view It becomes wrong be- cause it is forbidden, and it is forbid- den because it is not according to Christian practice; is repugnant to Mother Church's love and veneration for the dead, as pagan in origin, and, moreover, is encouraged by those who are antagonistic to Christian tradition. It is a Church Law and like other Church disciplinary laws, e. g., fast- ing and abstinence, the celibacy of the clergy and the observance of Holydays of Obligation, whilst it is rooted in stone" deep principle might, in certain circumstances, and with the approval of the Church be lawful. The Church [can "bind," and the Church can "loose." It is for us to obey and not to eat any forbidden fruit. I PATRONIZE OUR AI)VERTISERS.

The movie is seen and for- gotten, but the picture on the wall remains for years deepening its im- pression with the passing of time, arousing new thoughts and richer in- spirations, and often acting as a per- petual monitor and guide. It may be the picture of a father or a mother, it may be a beautiful reproduction of U some great artist, or better still, it nmy be a religmus picture carrying its irresistible appeal to piety and goodness. WHY JUSTICE STAFFORD ENTERED THE CHURCH tended the conference of the Hier- archy of the United States in Wash- ington recently, talked of the influ- ence which led to his decision to en- ter the Church. Chief among them he placed the feeling inspired by the Real Presence which, he said, mani- fested itself long before he realized what it was, or had any notion of be- coming a Catholic. THE ART OF BEING DEAF Justice Wendell P. Stafford, who be- came a convert to the Catholic faith not hear gossipers would not at the age of fifty-nine, and who at-their tongues any longer. Who knows this art ? Who wants to acquire it? It is so sweet to gossip and relate the mistakes and sins of our neighbors--and to listen to such gossip. If a class were started in which the art of being deaf were taught, how many would join that class ? If we will have to give an ac- count for every idle word, will we not be accountable for listening to idle and sometimes sinful talks ?
