A MINISTER AT MASS IN COLOGNE CATHEDRAL. The solemn awe that the services of the Catholic Church always impose upon all beholders who see them free from prejudices is well shown by a let- ter written to St. Anthony's Monthly by th:e Rev. Frank Crane, D. D., a Protestant minister. In the morning at 9:30 o'clock I went to mass in the Cathedral. I was early, and walked about to view the interior. Here was the forest. The pillars were as tall trees and the arches above them as their meeting branches. The light melted within softly as through thick leaves. The air was cool, as though the dim half-nlght dwelt here great cathedral, ringing sonorous and distinct to the remotest corner. The organ displayed its loudest harmonies the chorus sang strenuously, but easily above all, as an angel soars above all the lesser flocking birds, rang out this sweet, glorious voice, "Kyrie, Kyrie, Eleisonl" until I found myself chok- ing with sobs and my face wet. I brushed away furtively my tears and looked around me. The faithful were counting their beads and moving their lips in prayer, and rising up and kneeling down to the tinkling of the bell. I suppose they knew more of that mass than I, but I know what "Kyrio Eleison" means and I said one prayer there. So I saw the Cathedral of Cologne, in the face, the teeth must be main- tained in normal position and eondi. tion, and that this often means con- stant attention i9 early childhood. Says Dr. Mitchell: "Your child breathes through his mouth, and his teeth arc not in normal occlusion (do not shut together prop- erly). You are aware of these condi- tions and still you allow this perversion of functions .to exist until the e.hild grows to be twelve years of age, if he lives long enough, and then you awake to the realization of the fact that some. thing is wrong. Nature has spent more than half of the time allotted to her for developing the osceous structure of the child's face, and then you expect to readjust this organism to render it serviceable with the aid of your mo- ctmnical abilityl "You regulate the teeth, extract two or three, and though you somewhat re- duce the deformity and gruesome ex- pression of the face you are dissatisfied with the result, because nature's ar- chitectural plan has been spoiled--the features do not ;harn|onize with the rest of the head and the balance is imper- fect. "If y6l would but study the growth of the facial bones of your child and understand the forces which produce this development, you could not help appreciating the necessity of assisting nature at an early date by bringing these forces into their proper influ- ence. Remove the obstructions from the nose of your child in his fourth year or earlier; see that the faucial tonsils arc not abnormally large, and study the normal occlusion of the in- clined planes of the deciduous teeth (the way in which they shut together ; watch the locking of the first irma- nent molars, and if they do not oc. elude properly, have them placed in their normal position. That a noruml occlusion does exist in all types is t fact that has been accepted by the scientists for the last twenty years. If you do not understand this normal co clusion, familiarize yourself with the manner in which the inclined planes of the human teeth occlude. Learn how man masticates his food." Dr. Mitchell declares that one in. dined plane in malposition, one rotated tooth, one abnormal restoration by means of a poor filling, or one extrac- :tion, is sufficient to spoil a face which might otherwise show harmonious lines He continues: "Do not feed your child with predi- gested food--with hash and croquettes after these imperfections have been always. I saw long rows of pillars. Books by various art critics will tell you what is the matter with them, and how to eock your eye at them in a superior way and say, "YesU' But if you are vase enough to open your heart and empty it of all this cheap, foolish knowledge, and look around you, as a bsby looks at the moon, you may re- ceive something of the spiritual mean- ing of the place. The clock chimed. Tbe organ began to rumble. A long row of priests and vested boys came in through a side door and wound toward the altar, head- ed by a frail old man clothed in bright robes, supported on either side by an assistant priest. The bishop was about to celebrate mass. I do not recall much about this mass, but above all is the memory of a voice. It came from the choir loft. Some boy --I never saw him, but I want to hear him sing in heavenbroke forth with a "Kyrie Eleison," and I thought he would break my heart. It was a sweet, wholesome voice, unspoiled as yet by masters, who teach singers how not to sing. It was clear as the River Reuss that gushes out of Lake Lucerne. It was sweet as the sunshine that falls on the ripened orchards. It ws as caress- ing as a woman's love. It was as pure as .a calling angel. It filled all the distant arches of the profile against a moonlit sky, and saw my spiritual mother, and her shadow lay on me and blessed me. I gazed at the two towers of the facade and saw my two sky-piercing brothers and they put their arms about me, and I walked for a space with them along the milky way. I threaded the interior end sensed the shaded glory of that forest in stone, and my soul ran up along the grouped pillars and peeped into heaven. I attended mass and heard, if not the voice of God, a voice that God made and man had not yet spoiled. I visited the Cathedral of Cologne. Often the Cathedral of Cologne visits me. Rev.

If you would have your child grow to be a runner, you would not keep .him indoors for a month before a race, and what is true of one part of the human system is true of another. "The mother takes ber child to a professional man, calling his attention to the child's crooked teeth. The in- stinct of the parent precedes science. But how many guardians have been put off with the statement that the twelfth year is the proper time for adjusting malformations, and that the nervous srain connected with such cor. rection would be detrimental to the child's .health? If an animal cannot masticate its food, will it "thrive? "T.he harmfulness of such advice is .elucidated by the fact that by leaving the child's teeth in malocclusion the normal development of the jawbones of zs prevented. Considering, then, that each jawbone stands in close relation- ship to nine bones of the head, it is evident that the whole enclosure of the brain is being retarded in its de- velopment. Men need not bc scientists to understand what influence this con- dition will have on a child's nervous system." Statistics show that the child grows in weight as soon as this strained con- dition is relieved by moving the teeth to their normal position, thereby per- mitting the bones to develop freely. Further: "Common sense tells us that if a child's arm be put into a splint for six years, atrophy of the osseous and muscular tissues will ensue, and a ner- vous tension of the whole system be produced. With the removal of this splint the child's nervous system is immediately relieved. But even then the child's one arm will never at- tain the ppportions of his other, for too large a portion of the period during which the tissues develop has been lost. This illustration only partly emphasizes the former statement, that the devel- opment of the osseous inclosures of the brain, which is the citadel of control of the organism, needs the most careful consideration. If you would have your of dentistry. "Do not extract either the deciduous or the permanent teeth. Soo that each is in its normal position and that the one hundred and thirty-four inclined planes are performing their natural functions. Only then a child can de- velop perfectly and exhibit the highest standard of beauty that is inherent to his type." THE MAN FROM THE KENNEBEC Who Could Not Raise Even Pumpkins on His Gold Mine Without a Toothpick. "Now here," said the man from Montana at the Rocky Mountain Club luncheon the or.her day, "is a story that has gone through my state from one end to the other, and we all think it is good. "There was a white-faced little man who had taught school on the Kennebec river all his life and saved about $5,- 000, which he brought out to my glo- rlous state to invest in mining proper ties. One of our leading ditizens of a flourishing town took the gentle stran- ger in tow. "He tooR that stranger back into the mountains a good way, and finally when they .had got nearly up to the timber line our leading citizen stopped before a stretch of ground with a ledge of granite breaking through the middle of it. " 'There, my friend,' said our repro. sentative citizen, 'there is a gold mine. It is a real gold mine. " 'Why, that ore is so rich that you don't have to have it smelted. Just sack it up and send it to the mint in Frisco and they will send it back to you in gold bars. " 'I'm giving this thing away to you practically because my health is not good in these altitudes and I have to go to Arkansas Hot Springs right away. Yes, sir, I'll give this thing to you for the nominal sum of $5,000, title clear and all that sort of thing, regular and sl2ipshapc. It's a benefaction ca my part. ' "Well, gentlemen, that man from the Kennebec paid down his little five then and went up there with a tent and a pick and shovel and some sacks and started in to pick his claim apart iJ, chunks for transportation to the mint. Just because he didn't know anything about rocks he thought it best to have a preliminary assay made, and his friend the mining man who had parted with the claim at a sacrifice recom-! mended an assayer. "The report on his assay was written in letters of fire and punctuated with chip diamonds. The new owner of the mine began to wonder whether he would spend his money back home in Maine or go to the Continent and breeze around a bit. "One day he was biting into the granite on his claim with a hand drill ?reparatory to firing his first shot when a tired looking stranger drifted down the road past his claim. The stranger took in the lay of the land. " 'My friend,' said he in a far-away voice, 'what you want to do before working tha.t claim of yours is to send a good healthy specimen to the Agri- cultural Department at Washington to be placed in the Smithsonian Institu- tion. You are patriotic and public- spirited enough to do that little thing for a paternal government. I'd advise -our taking about .half a ton right out of the ,middle of that there claim and shipping it to Washington. "The man from the Kennebec thought this excellent advice. He dug about six sacks out of the middle of his claim and sent it on to the Agri- cultural Department with a letter ex- plaining that if there was a mining bureau in connection with the depart- ment it might be interesting if the officials of that bureau could make an analysis of the ore and forward the result, so that the sender might know just how great a gift he had made to the government. "Ite kept on digging and blasting at 'his claim, saving up the sacks of rock and dirt until he could get enough to make it really worth his while to forward the whole lot to the mint and make his pile all at once. He used to sit on his pile of dirt with a shotgun when he saw anybody coming down the road. "Tn about two months he got an official looking envelope, with the let- terhead of the Department of Agricul- ture. " 'Dear sir,' the letter read, 'your letter and consignment, freight paid. duly received.

Washington.--Three nuns, mmbers of the Congregation of Perpetual Ado- ration, took the oath of allegiance to the United States in the District Su- preme Court on November 8. They are Harie Kamp, born in Holland; Rachae- lina Maresea of Italy and Severina De Giovanni of Sicily. They came to the United States in 1900. The oath of allegiance was administered to th.e nuns in Justice Bernard's chambers, although their answers to the routine questions were given in open court. The clerk of the court arranged for the applica- tion for citizenship and respected the vow of the nuns to live cloistered lives, but J:ustice Barnard required that they appear in court. The salaries of th.e various editors of the Methodist iscopal church are fixed as follows: Editor of Sunday school publications, $5,000.00; 1Viethod- ist Review, $5,000.00; Christian Advo- cate (.New York), $5,000.00 i Epworth Herald, $4,500.00; Northwestern Chris- tian Advocate, $4,500.00; Christliche Apologete, $4,500.00; Hans and Herd, $4,500.00. In addition to this, a cor- respondence fund was granted each pa- per as follows: Christian Advocate, $7,000.00; Epworth Herald, $5,000.00; lorthwestern, $4,000.00; Central, $4,- 000.00; Western, $4,000.00; Christliche Apologete, $3,000.00; Hans and Herd, $1,200.00; Sunday school publications, $9,000.00.
