Cardinal Bourne. Lord Fitzalan and other distingui:hed Catholics are pa- trons of the new school. Father Vaughan had a parish in the East End for twenty years.

News Service) London, Feb. 26--Bequests amount- ing in all to about $50..000 have been left for Catholic purposes by Stephen Taprell Holland, Justice of the Peace and a co-founder of Westminster Ca- thedral, who died recently. The l)rincipal legacy is a sum of $30,C00, which is left in trust with the trustees of the archdiocese of We.stminster, fc, r the maintenance of the Church of the Holy Rood in the IIertfordshire tov,'n of Watford. The church, which was designed by Bent- ]ey, the ::rchitcct of Westminster Ca- thedral, was built entirley at the co:;t of Mr. Holland. and is generally re- garded as one of the most beaulifa] specimens of ecclesiastical architec- I ture in the who'e of England. Watford town is par'.icularly i,lter- esting because it was here, at the be- ginning of the 12th century, a veer boy, one Nicholas Breakspear, was born. Educated by the Benedictine monks of the rich and powerful St.] Alban's Abbey, hc entered the Church, became subsequently Cardinal Break- spear, and finally ascended the Papal Throne as Pope Adrian IV in 1154 the first and only Englishman who became Pope. Under the will of Mr. Holland, Car- dinal Bourne receives a legacy of $10,- 000 for schools and missions in his diocese, and a further $2,500 towards the completion of Westminster Ca- thedral, of which Mr. Holland was a generous behefactor (luring his life- time.

News Service) New York, Feb. 26.Exclusion of training in ethics fron the public hools is deplored by Dr. Charles W. Eliot, President Emeritus of Harvard University, in the course of an arti- cle entitled "An Assay of American Democracy," which appears in the latest number of the New York Times "Current History." l)r. Eliot l)oints out the need of ed- ucational t'cform and indicates several improvements which he declares are in the minds of thinking people. He writes: "Doubtless the most important of all these improvements in the public schools is the intro(luction of sound instruction in tile principles and aims of universal ethics. The present ex-  clusion of training in ethics from all [public schools is one of tile most un- fortunate results of the toleration in religion which was embodied in the Constitution of the United States and of the nmltiplicity of religious and Christian sects strongly represented in the American Commonwealth. A feasible mode of giving instruction in universal ethics in the free school is yet to be invented. ] "Several experiments on this sub- ject are ah'eady being tried; but none of them promising, and particuhu'ly none of then is likely to take any [ effect otl that large proportion of the American population which remains unchurched. The problem is to select a body of material for ethical ,in- struction which Roman Catholics, tixe various Protestant denominations and the Jews can agree upon for use in tile schools, this material to include selections from the Scriptures, stories, fables, hymns and other poetry, dranm and music. "Self-appointed committees in vari- ous parts of the country are already at work on this problem; and there is no ,better field for philanthropic aud patriotic endeavor."

News Service) New York, March 5.Abraham Baylins0n, secretary of the Society of Independent Artists, will appear in the Jefferson Market Court next Men- clay to answer charges that a paint- ig entitled "The Marriage at Cana of Galilee," ill which William J. Bry- an, Andnew J. Volstead and William 1:I. /nclerson are prominent figures, is sacrilegious, and that its display constitutes a violation of the penal statute pertaining to improper pic- tures. Critics h;tve identified one figure, which is shown clutching the Master by the shoulder, as Volstead. Bryan is shown overturning a jug of wine and Anderson stands at the doorway look- i ing on approvingly. ] The picture, the work of J. Francis Kaufman, has been on exhibition for the past two weeks. Charges that its exhibition was a violation of the penal code were made by detectives who viewed the painting and who declar- ed that it was sacrilegious. "Whatever nmy be anyone's reli- gious convictions, there can be no doubt that the painting is objection- able and should come down." declared Magistrate Oberwager. Balinson, summoned into court, disclaimed responsibility for the pic- ture, saying the society was obliged to hang every picture for which the [ university, never to read history that was stupidly written, for there wele ]too many fascinatingly written his- i tories to spend one's time oil a s;upid one.

"New blown" when compared or viewed in the light of present day laxity of morals. "There is around the popular con- ception of Catherine de Medic[s," so the preface states," a sort of aura of wickedness, so visible that most readers open a book about her with the unspoken question, "Was she as bad as tey say?" and expect the wxter will seep betray himself as either an apologete or a prosecutor. I The writer of this book hopes this ex- pectation will be disappointed. He is far from any desire to defend the character of. Catherine de Mealie[s, 'and equally far from any inerest in at- tacking itl His only desire is to show her as she was, and he leaves the reader to decide about the wicked- ' ness.
