' The Great Gift of Our Lady she had found out that she was to 2 " " " - As a little girl Zoe had always prayed to our Lady. She loved our Lady very much. She had often asked her guardian angel to please ask our Lady to come down on earth to see her. Then she be- came a Sister of Charity, as her sister Mary Louise had done be- fore her. She was Sister Catherine. As she knelt in the seminary she prayed again tlutt our Lady might come. That night, in the chapel, Sister Catherine actually saw and talked to our Lady, who said there was something God wanted her to do. * * * The happy days came and went. They went very fast. But still Sister Catherine did not know what is was that God wanted her to do. Summer was over. The leaves were nearly all off the trees. It was getting cold. And still Sis- ter Catherine waited. "Maybe I will know by Chris- mas," she said to herself. But she did not have to wait un- til Christmas. It was the twenty-seventh of November. It was Saturday eve- ning. All the Sisters had gone in the Chapel at half past five &clock. Everything, of course, was very still. All the Sisters were kneel- ing and looking at the Altar. God was there in the Blessed Sacra- ment. Sister Catherine was thinking about our Blessed Lady. She said to our Lord: "Will it be much longer before I know what You want me to do?" Just at that very minute she heard a sound like moving silk. The sound seemed to come from near St. Joseph's Altar. Sister Catherine looked over that way. There stood our Lady! Oh, how beautiful she wasl Her robe was the color of the early morning sky. Over her head was a long, soft, white veil. She was standing on a big ball. There were some clouds around it. She was look- ing up to Heaven. In her hands she held a ball. It looked like the world. She was offering the: world to God. She was praying for it. On our Lady's fingers were many rings. The rings were full of very, very bright stones. Rays of light came from these stones. The rays fell to our Lady's feet. Sister Catherine heard a voice. The voice said: "The rays mean the graces our Blessed Mother gives to all who ask for them. Some of the stones do not send out any rays. This means that some people do not get graces because they do not ask for thevn." Sister Catherine just knelt there looking and looking at our Lady. Then she saw our Lady look- ing at her very sweetly. Sister Catherine heard the voice again. The voice said: "The ball in our Lady's hands means that she prays for every- body's soul." Then Sister Catherine did not see the ball any more. Our Lady lowered her arms. The rays be- came brighter and brighter. Then Sister Catherine saw words written around our Lady's head. The words were: "O Mary, conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to thee." Then a frame of gold seemed to be around our Lady and the words. Sister Catherine seemed to be looking at a beautiful picture. Sister Catherine heard the voice again. The voice said: "Have a Medal made to look like what you are seeing. Every- body who wears it will receive great graces. It should be worn around the neck." The picture turned. Sister Catherine saw many things on the back. She saw a big letter M. This meant Mary, our Lady's name. Below the letter M were the Sacred Hearts of Jesus and Mary. Above the M and a little higher up, was a Cross. Around all these were twelve bright stars. Then Sister Catherine saw the picture no more. It was gone, Just like a light that had been put out. But Sister Catherine's heart was singing. It was singing as it did when be a Sister. "I know, I know, I know," her heart sang. "This is what God wishes me to do. I am to have this Medal made, so that every- body will love our Lady more and nore." She saw our Lady standing there. The golden rays fell every- where. (To Be Continued) (Medal Stories, published by the Whitman Company, Racine, Wts., may he purchased at ten cent stories and elsewhere). (N. C. W. C.

Favor Barcelona Regime Those who regarded the4r sig- natures as expressing sympathy with the Barcelona Regime: SENATOR NYE, North Dakota: Said he "participated solely out of a desire to demonstrate sympathy with duly constituted and recog- nized government." SENATOR THOMAS, Utah: "I signed the greeting honestly be- cause I believe that the ability of a parliament to persist under try- ing circumstances is worthy of congratulations." SENATOR LAFOLLETTE, Wis- consin: "The message is proper in view of the l'act this parliament can survive in the face of inter- vention from outside nations. It was an appropriate occasion for members of this legislative body to send a word of greeting to mem- bers of a parliamentary body which has been able to survive the tragedy of a civil war." SENATOR FRAZIER, North Dakota: "The Loyalist , Spanish Government is the duly elected and constituted government of that country and everyone who believes in democracy must, it seems to me, oppose a revolution against any duly organized gov- ernment which is sponsored by the financial and Fascist interests both at home and abroad. This revolution is openly backed by the Fascist interests in both Italy and Germany, and apparently by those same interests throughout the world." SENATOR ELLENDER, Louis- iana: Said his sympathies are in line with the Loyalist govern- ment in Spain; believes church destruction in Spain due to out- side interference. REP. PIERCE, Oregon: Said he signed because he is interested in: the Loyalist cause. REP. TIEGAN'; Minnesota: Said he signed because he is "very much in sympathy with the Loyal- ist causeat all times." tLEP. POAGE, Texas: "The Loyalists are deserving of some What Do You Know?

Counsels are rules of life and conduct for those who, not sat- isfied with the bare minimum, choose to aim at greater moral perfection by means of good works not commanded but commended as better than their opposites, e. g., abstinence from lawful pleasures. Observance of the counsels is meritorious only if done from a supernat- ural motive. 3.

In size it doesn't compare favorably with most of its neighbors, but in beauty it surpasses them. As soon as some one mentions Switzerland you begin to think are massive, magnificent, majestic. And surely if the Boy Jesus were visiting in Europe He would call upon His Swiss friends. Imagine what fun He'd have climbing up the lofty peaks with the Swiss children. The only t: '1, animals that find it easy to climb the steep mountains are the goats. Possibly some of them would join the children. Switzerland has a population some 3, 959,999 people. Catholics number 1, 591,000. See how well you can color the picture. 1550 FASHIONS ._.

W.__C. Features) IN THE KITCHE With Molly Gavin the two contending sides in Spain. However, he added, he did have sympathy with the Loyalists sole- ly because of the intervention of i Germany and Italy. "My thought," he said, "is of the awful results that will follow for civilization if powerful nations can go into weaker countries for ulterior mo- tives." REP. O'CONNELL, Mont., could not be reached because of absence from Washington. A telegraphic attempt also failed. However, m view of Representative O'Connell's How and What To Serve: Through the winter months when fresh fruits are not avail- able many delicious dishes can be made with dried fruits. Some- times a housewife may think that dried fruit is more expensive than fresh or canned fruit. But, just think, you can buy 50 dried apri- cots for the same price you pay for a can of apricots which con- tains only six or eight whole fruits. Pound for pound, the dried fruit contains more vitamins, more val- ue and less waste than either fresh or canned fruit. Dried fruits are especially good for children because they contain not only sugar but valuable min- eral constituents. The desire of children for candy and sweets might well be supplied by the use of more dried fruits. Those of the dried fruits that are richest and contain the small- est amounts of fibrous cellulose are dates, figs, currants and rais- ins. They should always be steri- lized by pouring boiling water over them or by steaming before eating, unless they are put up in sterilized packages, in Which case the above precaution is unnecessary. Prunes and raisins are two of the best known dried fruits, but l try dried peaches, apricots and apples. Delicious pies and des- serts can be made with these. Dried pears when properly cook- ed and flavored, make an excel- lent dish. Do not buy if you can help it a cheap quality of any dried fruit. A few cents more a pound will insure a much higher grade, larger and cleaner pieces. Apricot Cream 1 pkg. Lemon Gelatine maintains the sanctity of demo- cratic institutions under such con- ditions." REP. BINDERUP, Nebraska: "I signed premediatedly because my sympathies are 100 per cent with the Loyalists in Spain." REP. BURDICK, North Dakota: "I signed it. I knew what it was when I signed it, and I meant it that way." REP. BOILEAU, Wisconsin: "I am an advocate of democracy and oppose the overthrow of govern- ment by force. I hope the people of Spain will decide to solve their political problems through demo- cratically-elected parliamentary government, rather than by con- tinuing this awful civil war with all its suffering and bloodshed." REP. LEA, California: Said he signed the "message" without gir- l ins it much consideration; that he was not particularly interested in the set-up of the government in Spain, nor the conflicting rights of sort of congratulations for trying to carry on under such trying cir- cumstances." REP. COFFEE, Washington: His secretary said he could say the Congressman "has the deepest sympathy with the Spanish Loyal- ists" and is "vigorously opposed to those who are fighting them." REP. GEHRMANN, Wisconsin: Said he intended "an extension o congratulations" on a fight to maintain a democratic form of government." REP. AMILE, Wisconsin: "My sympathies are 100 per cent with the Loyalist side. I think anyone who is on the other side isn't an American." REP. BERNARD, Minnesota: 'As a Catholic, I cannot believe that the Catholic people or the Cath- olic priesthood of America will fail to understand why I am proud to join with other democratic and humane people in sending .my greetings to a paHiament which 1 cup apricot pulp 1 cup hot water 1 cup cream, whipped Dissolve the Lemon Gelatine by the directions on your package so that you have 1 cup gelatine mix- ture.
