Consonant With Right Reason So in matters religious we Catho- lics find it eminently in consonance with right reason to have an external authority in the Church to correct the vagaries of private judgment. Fur- thermore we could not reconcile with the divine wisdom and omniscience of Jesus Christ his failure to establish just such necessary authority in "I-Iis Church. It will be clear from the foregoing considerations that "instruction i morals and good citizenship drawn from carefully selected Scripture pas- sages" can not be made by Protestant clergymen from the Protestant ver- sion and canon of the Bible and be at the same time acceptable to Catholics. We have the greatest sympathy with the object our Protestant friends have in view; but let us face the question squarely, and honestly admit its implications. They are important and far-reach- ing. THERE IS A DIFFERENCE When 'Ma is Sick When Ma is sick, she pegs away; She's quiet, though, not much to say She goes right on a-doin' things, An' sometimes laughs, or even sings, She says she don't feel extra well, But then it's just a kind o' spell. She'll be all right t9morrow, sure, A good old sleep will be the cure, An' Pa he sniffs an' makes no kick, An' Ma, she smiles, let's on she's glad, When Ma is sick it ain't so bad. When Pa is Sick When Pa is sick he's scared to death An' Ma an' us just holds our breath; He crawls in bed an' puffs and grunts And does all kinds of crazy stunts. He wants "Doc" Brown, an' mighty quick. For when Pa' ill he's awful sick. He grasps an' groans, an' sort o' sighs, He talks so queer, an' rolls his eyes. Ma jumps an' runs, an' all of us, An' all the house is in a fuss. An' peace an' joy is mighty skeerce-- When Pa is sick it's something fierce. OH! YOU FISH! A motorist, stranded by the road- side, telephoner frantically for assist- ance. "I've turned turtle," he shouted. "Apply at the aquarium," came the answer. It is only the souls that do not IQve that go empty in this world.

Evidently some of the blank verse we used to read in school was so called as a slight tribute to the minds that wrote it. NEEDED HELP. "Dear," said the fond mother, "I must punish you for disobeying my orders." "Please, ma," said the little boy, "may I go to my room first?" "Yes," consented the parent, and she cautiously followed her first-born upstairs. There Robert was kneeling by his bed, and his mother heard him say: "Dear Lord, if You ever wanted to help a little fellow in trouble, now's .Your chance." The whipping was indefinitely post- poned. THE TELEPHONE'S MONOLOQUE I am a telephone. While 1 am not broke, I am in the hands of a receiver. I have a mouthpiece, but unlike wom- an, I never use it. Fellows use me to make dates with girls, and girls use me to break said dates. Husbands call up their wives over me, and wives call their husbands down over me. I nev- er get to call anywhere, but sometimes the company comes and takes me out. I am not a bee, but I'often buzz. I am the "Bell" of the town, and while I do not get jewelry, I often get rings.
