Misses Maggie and Mollie Curley, at [ '1834 Madison avenue, passed away ! At the last.meeting of the Young Friday evening. Miss Kelly was 68 tized, matrimony is a sacrament. From this there also follow certain conclusions, Which the Church log- ically holds regarding a sacrament• Whether others hold these same prin- ciples or not. is not questioned; nor does the Church attempt to force her views upon anybody; but surely she is entitled to hold her own doctrines. Finally, there is the marriage of those who recognize the Church as their spiritual Mentor; in other words, the marriage of Catholics• For these the Church lays down certain conditions and certain laws, "w~ich," she says positively to her children, '"must be observed or I shall not rec- ognize your marriage." I~ence there are three categories, under one of which the Church must list every marriage that takes place, no matter where or by whom it is contracted, or who the witnesses may be. Those Who Are Not Baptized• First, there is the marriage of :hose who are not baptized, and there- ~ore do not receive a sacrament~. years of age. The remains were tak- en to Galena, Ill., Saturday evening for interment. Besides the .Misses Curley, another cousin, Mrs. William Gavin survives. differ in their legislation on this subject. Cousins may marry in Tennessee, for example, but not in Indiana• The State of Tennessee is certainly not legislating for the State of Indiana. But it does say that if citizens of Tennessee wish to marry, they must do it according to the laws of Tennessee. That is just what the Church does, when legislating for Catholics. She does not legislate, or wish to legis- late, in respect, to marriages where both parties are non-Catholic. But she does hold firmly to her right to administer the laws of the Church in regard to her own children. Impediments. There are certain impediments to marriage. By such an impedimentI is meant an obstacle which hinders[ or stands in the way of contracting a marriage; so that as long as" that impediment exists the Church will not allow the marriage; at least not until the impediment or obstacle is removed. Some of these impediments are such that they render a marriage illicit, or sinful; they forbid the marriage, but nothing more. Then there are impediments which render a marriage absolutely invalid," that is, they prevent the marriage entire- ly. Almighty God has placed some such impediments in the way of marriage, and from these there can be no dis- pensation. The Church has placed impediments in the way of certain marriages, and, as already shown, has a perfect right to do so. In estab- lishing these, she has two ~houghts in mind, first the safeguarding of matrimony in its integrity and •sanc- tity; second, to secure the spiritual good of the individual and ultimately of society. Surely the Church, with her experience of nineteen hundred years to guide her, and the wisdom of God to protect her, is well quali- fied to decide what is for the good of the people. Albert Vannucci, 61 ),ears of age, died Monday morning at his resi- dence, 643 Beale avenue. Mr. Yan- nucci came to Memphis from Chica- go; he operated a ga'ocery at Orleans and Beale.
