Apart from the cate- chetical instructions of the pastor and parents, exper' ience proves that the best informed candidates, in the examination for confirmation, are those into whose home comes Catholic journal. Children will invariably read the paper. Catholics should therefore, make every effort to establish journals, not merely nominally, but thoroughlyCatholic, otherwise views, not in accord- ance with faith, may be adopted and defended: A liberal support should be extended to good Catholic papers already in existence, in order that they may accomplish still more efficient good for both Church and state. This is a work of supreme utility and abso- lute necessity. "-The Catholic Bulletin, St. Paul.
