......... : /. . . i PAGE EIGHT * $ $ * * $ * * * $ * $ " LISTENING IN " * By Autolycus * Drnnk as Blazes It appears that the term "drunk as blazes" does not refer to the well- known blazes of the subterranean tropics. The London Universe has made the discovery that the descrip- tion is associated with St. Blaise. At one season of the year, when the nights were cold and the vigils of the shepherds were long and trying, a particularly strong brew of ale was made to fortify them against the rig- ors of an all-night vigil on the moors. This brew was known as "St. Blaise's Ale," and it was so potent that very little of it sufficed to incapacitate even the hardy moorland shepherds. This gave rise to the expression, "drunk as blazes" which originally signified an advanced stage of intern-] perance resulting from an over- draught of St. Blaise's Ale. Exceptional Grip The Pittsburgh Catholic, which is in its 80th year of publication, has a subscriber who has read the paper, or had it read to her, from the very be- ginning. Her father took out a sub- scription on March 1st, 1844, and the paper has been delivered to the same address for over seventy-five years. This case is exceptional, of course. But every Catholic paper of any age has readers whose loyalty to the pa- per has lived through succeeding gen- erations. This tends to show that the Catholic paper has an exceptional glip on its readers; that they esteem it; that its influence in the home is greater than the influence of the or- dinary newspaper. Advertisers should get to know these things, for their 'FRANCE PROVIDES FOR EXTENSION OF RELIGIOUS ORDERS (By N. C. W. C: Nes Service) Paris, Feb. 16.As announced in a recent cable to the N. C. W. C.

The African Missions have estab- lishments in the United States, among the colored people of the states of New Jersey, Georgia and Louisiana. In Africa they have 310 priests and 35 coadjutors, and occupy eleven vi- carists or prefectures apostolic in Da-  homey, Togo, Nigeria and Egypt. i I own sake. Coue Beads Many people who scoff at rosary beads, as "survivals of a superstitious past," will be enthusiastic users of Cone beads; for they are new and fashionable. Coue beads, I learn from an advertisement, are made of "fasci- nating solid walnut," though what there is fascinating about solid wal- nut is L one of those ysteries which I do not expect" to clear up until.
