THE NIGHT SCHOOL One of fine biggest possible con- tributiona to the nation's future is being made by the Knights of Col- umbus. At the rate of one a day, they are opening free night schools for ex-service men, regardless of color or creed, in the large cities of the United States. Upward of 100,000 men are already enrolled, and by June, the organiza estimates, the total will reach 250,- 000. Textbooks and supplies of all kinds are furnished free. Every man who served with the colors is invited to attend Expenses are paid from the fund wich the Knights of Columbus had on hand for welfare work when the war ended suddenly. Abraham Lincoln studied by the light of a fireplace. President An- drew Johnson was taught to read and write by his wife; Governor John A. Johnson of Minnesota left school at 15 to support his mother, but he, like so many "others, made good use of his evenings, after his day's work was finished. The Knights of Columbus schools, the free night schools, operated by ninny cities, and the publi7 libraries offer an opportunity for any men de- termined to forge ahead.--Cleveland Pi-ess. CHURCH LEADS LATE CENSUS lContnued from pag 1.) with 152,905 students. The Presby- terians came next with 216 institu- tions and 45,938 students The Roman Catholic Church re- ported 1,188 philanthropic institutions with 616,513 inmates and patients. The Salvation. Army .was next to the Catholic Church in this line of en- deavor, reporting 232 institutions and 11,182 patients and inmates. Most Progressive States Catholic The 33 States in which the Roman Caolic Church ghowed the largest proportions were identical at the two periods, with the exception of Indiana and Kansas, the Methodist Episcopal Church leading in the former in 1906 and in the latter in 1916. Geog- raphically, the Roman Catholic Church led in the New England, the Middle Atlantic, the East North Cen- tral and Pacific divisions, except Kansas. In the southern divisions it led in Delaware, Maryland and the District of Columbia, of the South Atlantic, and in Louisiana and Texas of the West South Central division. Although the membership of the Roman Catholic Church is thus wide- ly distributed among the States, yet a large proportion of this member- ship is concentrated in the larger and more thickly settled States of the North and East There were 25 States for each of which there were reported in 1916 over 100,000 mem- bers of ,the Roman Catholic Church, and each of four States reported over 1,000,000 -- New York, 2,745,552 Pennsylvania, 1,830,532; Mssachu- setts, 1,410,208; Illinois, 1,171,381. These four states, together with Ohio, which had 843,856 Roman Cath- olic members, reported 8,001,529 Roman Catholics members, or over one-half of the total membership of the church in 1916.

A Parish Mission in Holy Week I What a wealth of meaning and im- poFc is embodied in this expression none save partakers of the benefits accruing from such a benediction can begin to recount. Yet it is not to be doubted that the congregation of St. Mary's Church, Helena: are fully pre- pared to sing the praises and rehearse the words of the Very Reveend Doc- tor Polk, who, during the imposing solemnity of Holy Week, conducted a most practical mission among them. The bell which summoned the taith- ful to Holy Mass on March 28, sound- ed with new vehemence for many not accustomed to obeying its call and so the congregation was greatly in- creased by their presence at divine service. Nor did they assemble in vain, for the pith, eloquence and zeal which permeated the opening dis- course impressed all with but one con- viction, that "he spoke" as of old it was said of the Master like one having authority. "Yet forty days and N.ineveh shall be destroyed!" a stir- ring text was forcibly" developed and applied to the present circumstances of the parish. With equal earnest- ness and exactitude were the follow- ing subjects treated in their proper order during the evening exercises: Means of Salvation. Mmal Sin, the Abomination of Desolation. The Christian Home. Death. The Precepts of tJe Church. The Last Judgment. The Glories of Mary. Be Thou Faithful! The morning sermons were highly made upon the nature and scope of spiritualism, secret societies, good lit- erature ,devotional articles, etc. To the average Catholic, the Mis- i sion was truly an education in tself, [ forced home and firmly established within the sanctuary of the heart by! the very interesting and appealing examples seclected from practical life and close experience with human na- ture. Curiosity may have lured many to enter the Church but intereest deep and heartfelt held the listeners spell- bound. Loyalty to Mary is, I believe, the characteristic devotion of the Order of the MostHoly Redeemer to whiqh Father Polk belongs. Hence in filial love, Saturday was selected ah "her own day"--a day to display the heart's affection--a day to array er elients--a day to confound her enemies--a day to rejoice her chil- dren and make them thrill with new and holy delight in her glories and their honors. The evening services were begun with a simple, touching procession uniquely arranged to rep- resent a rosary. And it was verily a living rosary, rich with beauty, charm and fragrance. From the sacristy then sanctuary and on through the Church they filed, these symbols of Ayes and Paters until at reaching their Mother's shrine each deposited a pure, white rose, whose sweet holy breath ascended as blessed incense through Mary's hands on to the Great Creator's throne. Who can estimate the amoun of edification, merit and saving grace obtained through this evidence of unwavering fidelity to her whom "all generations shall call blessed because He that is mighty hath i done gxmt things to her." And what shall be said of the discourse deliv- lered? Oh! it was wonde(fful from every theology, philoso- standpoint, phy, art, science, reason, but best and above all from the view of common sense and strong personal love for the Mother of God to whom children and grown-ups pledged themselves. Sunday's dawn marled indeSd a Resurrection morn. Never was there so reverent, so, attentive, so inspiring a number of communicants as on this Easter Day. How the Risen Saviour must have rejoiced that He could re- veal Himself to so goodly a multitude vho presented themselves as so many Marys seeking Jesus of Nazareth the Crucified and finding Christ, the Glori- fied living Lord. How ardently the Master had used His power to roll back the stone of past sins that hin- dered them from entering in! How joyously He embraced the wanderers returned to Him none but the wander- ers can tell. But surely this we all know, such extraordinary gladness must have its source in God, the source of every good. The sermon given at tihe gorgeously sung High Mass on Easter was a masterpiece capable of arousing the highest loyalty'and enthusiasm in pos- sessing and retaining Catholic Faith, the grand old heritage of Christ's fol- lowers. Evening found the Church well filled with'parishioners truly re- vived in the spirit of Catholicism ready indeed to promise with God's aid to be faithful unto death and thus to gain the crown of life. The key- note of this last instruction was that of hopeful warning suited to inspire the hearer to undertake any task necessary to attain alvation, confi- dent that "we can do all things in Him who strengtheneth us."

It was an unusual thing to witness a wedding' with a nuptial mass in our litt',e mission chZlrch today. As a rule our young people have been going to Fort Smith to have their marriage solemnized. The parties of today's wedding were Mr. Rudolph Silc and Miss Angelina Karehliker, attended by Mr. Caesar Medwik and Mr. Louis PAGE TIREE ii = mlmmm 't Karchliker as best men, and Misses Marguerite McFaul and Welma Pech- nik as bridesmaids.
