One of the first acts of the Knights of Columbus Am- erican History Commission was to is- sue a brochure on the opium evil, showing how vast quantities of this narcotic were shipped into the United States for both domestic exploitation and for export to the Orient. This brochure covered but one phase of the deadly dope traffic, which rivals reck- less bootlegging as a social menace. "The support of all good citizens is merited by any legal measures, however stringent, which seek to check and suppress this active threat against the physical and moral health of the nation."

"The Quebec Knights," he declares, "will aid the properly constituted au- thorities in every way in preventing or prosecuting what has some sem- blance of an incendiary drive against the Catholic churches of the Prov- ince. We are ready, to whatever ex- tent the law sanctions, to protect not only Catholic persons and property from outrage and malicious damage, but the persons and property of all others who may be subjected to at- tack." any such trafficking. "But still," I said to him, "you told Holworth that some of the big boys were giving out a lot of 'dope,' didn't you? .... Oh," he said, "By 'dope' I meant the story the boys have been telling that Fa- ther is going to be changed from our parish to another church," At once the ight dawned upon me. The "dope" was the rum or of a trans- fer of the most popular curate in our parish. As soon as I could restrain my i bursts of loud laughter, in which the lights to every part of the hall. Va-] rious contests were had. The feature t of the evening was an old-time square I dance and a silver Loving Cup was[ awarded as a prize to the best dancer. Air. Forrest Hill was the successful winner. Another feature was a cake[ contest for the most popular young lady. Miss Regina Kleba was the suc- cessful contestant in this race. Music was furnished by the "Hit and Miss" Orchestra. Card playing was enjoyed by those who did not care to dance. and at 11:30 p. m. lunch and hot cof- fee was served. A large crowd at- tended and the nice sum of $85.00 net was realized, which will give the Treasury of the Ladies Branch a nice boost. The affair was a success in every way and enjoyed by all present. TIlE SECRET OF REAL PRAYER There is grave suspicion among the I Quebec Knights of Columbus that the] string of church fires is more than a I chain of coincidences. "If the Ku Klux Klan or any other anarchistic outfit contemplates active organiza- tion in Quebec or any other Canadian province, it will quickly learn what a real fight against it means," Mr. Bol- vin concludes, who, besides being C nadian supreme director of the K. of C., is also a member .of the Do- minion parliament. THANKFUL FOR SAGEGUARD Rumors are very prevalent in most every community of size telling of the looseness of morals among the "ad- vanced youth" of our high schools. The past several years have had their reports of "wets" and "drys" in the student bodies, with the "wets," if boys, who carried "the hootch" in the hip pocket, and if of the flapper es- tate, bulging the vanity case with a] cute little phial. I More recently came press notesl from several sections of the country] telling of underground narcotic de-] liveries to the boys and girls of the high schools and the known resence of many student dope addicts. This startled the parents and inves- tigations were made and the fact as- certained that the vice was indeed in- sinuating itself into the school life of the young people. World knowledge and fear dominat- ed the thoughts of our watchful pat- entsand the word "dope" carried its sinister meaning into the home. How seriously it was take by one parent is homely brought forth in a letter published in the Brooklyn Tablet last week's issue. Here is the letter: The Danger of Hasty Judgment Dear Sir: I have a little boy, 8 years old, who attends St. -- Pa- rochial School. Last Wednesday when he came home his mother, as usual, questioned him about his day's ex- periences in. school. You can imagine her amazement and consternation when he uddenly told her, "Jim Ca- sey says there is a lot of 'dope' being given out by some of the big boys of the .school." Not knowing just what was most prudent for her" to do, she did not question him any further, but waited my return from business. When I arrived home my wife was in a state of nervous excitement. She immediately told me what she had heard and was impatient with me be- cause I would not rush off at once to report the matter to Dear Father -- , our pastor. "No," I said, "Let's not get overwrought. I will talk to Holworth (our son) and find out more particulars before taking the action you suggest." After question- ing the boy I decided to call upon Jim Casey's parents for further in- formation, as my son had simply heard the remark made that a "lot of 'dope' is being given out by the big Caseys joined, I hastened home to re- A young woman, spending the sum- assure my wife.

NOTES Little Rock Branch An enthusiastic meeting of St. Ed- ward's Branch No. 79, IAttle Rocl was held Thursday night, Feb. 22. A large number of members were pres- ent. The meeting was opened with prayer by Presiden G. P. Kords'- meier, a,,,. n order to take up the Pass Word a rush was made to the Secretary for same. Five new mem- bers were obligated by State Secre- tary Jos. H. De Clerk. Fourteen ap- plications for membership were read and acted on. Communications from the families of Lawrence Kleaser and Bro. Wm. Cavanaugh were read and ordered spread on the minutes. Bills for Masses and floral offerings were read and ordered paid. Special com- mittees reported as follows: Sick com- mittee reported no one sick as far as they knew.

Af- ter a day or two, the visitor always looked out for the old woman, and the sight of her inspired devotion, and gaveh er, too, a certain feeling of con- fidence in her wn prayers. One evening the two were leaving the chmch together, and the young wom- an approached the bowed old figure, told her that she had noticed her every evening and offered her her prayer book, saying: "You might like to have this, it has many beautiful prayers." The 01d woman looked at her with 'a smil on her kindly face and thanked her, but said, "it would be of no use to me at all, alanna, I never learned to read, even if I had the eyes for that now. I just pray my own prayers. Sure, the Lord knows me well after all these years, and I just talk to Him and I know He love to listen." Like many another simple Irish peasant this holy old soul has learned the secret of real prayer.

" lone, with no mark of distinction, lressed in a military overcoat that gave no clue to his rank, the Emperor passed through the town without at- tracting attention, till he arived at two roads, and found himself obliged to inquire his way of a man who was itting before the door of the-last house, snaking a pipe. Like the Em- peror, this individual wore a military overcoat, and seemed to entertain no small opinion of himself. "My friend, can you tell me which of these roads will bring me to ?". asked the Emperor. The man of the pipe scanned him from :e'Ad to foot, aparently sur- l.riscd at the presumption of a pedes- trian in speaking to such a dignitary as himself; and between two puffs of smoke he growled: "The right." "Thank you, ,sir!" said the Em- peror, raising his hat with the re- spect this uncivil personage seemed by his manner to command. "Will you permit me to ask you anothe question ?" "What do you want to know?" "Your rank in the army." "Guess," returned the other. "Lieutenant, perhaps ?" "Go higher." "Captain ?" "Much higher"---and the When birds are in trees, there is a gave a consequential puff. great difference in the way they move I and perch. Some move sideways, like[ sparrows.

THE MASS It is always a pleasant thin'g to have been at Mass; it sweetens and savors the whole day. It is, indeed, a wonderful thing, as we walk about to think that "we have seen the Lord" seen Him with our own eyes witldn a few feet of Him! What a privilege to enjoy over ordinary men and women whom we pass by in the streets! No one, therefore, who cain do it, should miss this seeing of the Lord every day.
