The religious institute of the Sisters of Charity of Nazareth, with a special view to he education of young maid- ens, was founded on December 1, in the year 1812, principally through the zeal of Right Roy. M|,r. lOlaget, Bishop of Louisville, in the United States of North America, under the Rule of St. Vincent of St. Paul, chief Patron of the Society. The nunlber of sisters, at first two was in the following year increased to sixteen Afterwards, as the number of sisters and foundations increased llow great was the ardor for the salve- :ion of their neighbor, which animwted this religious institute, was singularly shown during the misfortunes of their country, especially when epidemics and civil war ravaged their country.

THE COST OF ADVERTISING. From Collier 's. Very few readers of Collier's, or any ..... national publication for that matter, 51  IJ__  1 I know how advertising is placed or what m m 00.00lit costs. Advertising is becoming an New Era Press 315 WEST MARKHAM ST. LITTLE ROCK, ARKANSAS Catalog and Commercial Printing |!.-, JlJ art and the advertisements in the best )publica:tions are an embellishment. Without advertising the splendid peri- odicals of today would be impossible and readers are the ones most vitally interested. Reverse the tables: Let publishers withdraw from accepting any advertising and again the readers would :be affected The advertiser and pub- i lislrer bring the reader in touch with ]the latest and best of everything in every ook aud coruer of the country. That is why you, as a reader, ought to be interested. A one-inch advertisement in Col- lier's, one time, costs the advertiser $35. A quarter page costs $400, a page in black and white $1,000, and color pages all the way from $i,800 to $2,- 500, according to the colors used. When a nrerchant or ma;mffacturer spends $400 for a quarter-page announcement or $1,000 for a page, ,he is pretty cer- tain in Ms own mind that he is making a wise'investment, for it surely is an investment, for the immediate or dis- tant future. If he is a mail-order ad- vertlser, he must get imfaediate returns in the form of cash or replies from prospective customers. In other words, I lie must make money on eery adver- tisement else be suffers a distint loss The publicity' advertiser is building for the future. He rarely expects and seldom gets any inquiries, but by keep- ing everlastingly at it he nakes his product ku0wn and many times a by- word; a well-known camera manufac- turer has ad'ertised his cameras so thoroughly and consistently that the word "kodak' has actually become synonymous with the word "camera" WHERE DOES MORMONISM SE- CURE ITS RECRUITS? In Liverpool (England) the Mor- mons have recently been carrying on missionary work with vigor and appar- ently with considerable success. Where --in what elmnent of the community do they get most of their "converts" and where do t)hey get none? On these points an article il the Catholic Herald (England) contains some porti- nen,t queries and some pertinent obser- vations as to the position of the Angli- can clergy and c,hureh in connection with the matter: In some quarters it is asserted that the charges made against the :M:or- mons, and tim allegations as to the suc- cess of their mission, are very greatly exaggerated, and that some of those engaged in the agitation against them are simply anhnated by a desire for self-advertisement. These assertions may be true to omo extent, but no one can deny that the Mormon campaign in the city is pursued with remarkable vigor, and timt it meets with a considerable amount of success. And no one can doubt Vhe bona fide of the Protestant Bishop of Liverpool, and Archdeacon Madden, and the Rev. Mr. Bartlett, or of other prominent representatives of Anglicanism and Nonconformity. The statements as to Mormon prog- ress which these men are daily mak- ing on public platforms and in the press are only too true, and the efforts they are putting forth to prevent Mor- monism further strengthening its al- ready strong grip on the Protestant rank and file are only too necessary. And the truth and the necessity are facts calculated to make Catholics ask certain questions. Archdeaon Madden, in his speech at Itope Hall, denmnded that Mormons should be "excluded from the society of a moral and Christian nation." By a moral and Christian nation the Archdeacon, of course, means a Prot- estant nation. How Is It That It Is Only in Protestant Nations That the Mormons Axe Suc- cessful? i But how does he account for the I fact that it is only amongst the Prot- estant nations that success attends the efforts to propagate what he very prop- erly describes as "a soul-destroying creed, because it is immoral in its es- sence, and disastrous to the highest in- terests of the home, of womanhood, and of childhood?" An American, who Ires been sent to his country for the express purpose of helping to fight the evil, declares that "last year there were no fewer than 5,000 new con- verts to Mormonism, and of this num. ber 3,600 were from Great Britain and Denmark, while it was signifi- cant that eight hundred giEs arrived in Boston every year, mostly from Great Birtain." In one year this t'soul- destroying creed" obtains 3,500 con- verts fr(ml two of the most Protestant and, therefore, in the estimation o i Avehdeacon Madden and his friends, two of the most moral and Christian nations in the world. And the com- bination of all the other nations of the earth supplies in the same period only 1,500 converts. Why should tlle campaign of this 'soul-destroying creexl" be so success- ful in nations which ought, because of their Protestantism, to be veritable holies of holies of Christianity and morality? Why should the Mormon missionaries find their recruits, as Mr. Bartlett tells us they do find them, amongst "comnunicants of the Church of England?" Why do not "the poly- gamous conditions prevailing in Utah," at.cording to Mr. Bartlett, draw thou- sands of converts to Mormonism from the Catholic nations of Europe? Do Not Pursue Their Campaign in Catholic Nation---Why? It may be said that the Mormons do not pursue their campaign in the Catholic nations of Europe. But, why do they not? Why are their mission- ary effor[s onfined to the "Christian and moral" Protestant nations? Again, whilst the dignitaries of the Englican church in Liverpool and many of the Nonconformists of the city find it necessary to fight tooth and nail against i[ormonism, why have the Catholic authorities no necessity for a similar campaign? Whilst Mr. Bart- lett has to complain of the attraction which the ' ' polygamous conditions" in Utah have on communicants of 4he Church of England, why &o Catholics find themselves without the need for similar complaints? In Liverpool, the Mormons distribute their plausibly- written and insidious literature broad- cast from house to house, without stopping to consider tt, e religion, or want of religion, of the inhabi'tants. Why does Vhe distribution of that literature operate differently, acording as .the recipient is a Catholic or a Protestant ? These are simple questions, which any Catholic school child ould very promptly answer. But it would be very interesting to have them answered by Bishop Chavasse, or Archdeacon Madden. or any of t.he Anglican or Non- conformist leaders of the fight against Mormonism.--New York Freeman's Journal.
