L L Bishop Goes Via Dogsled to Officiate At Mother's Funeral Ottawa. ().--Arriving in Ottawa just in time to officiate at his mother's funeral, the Most Rev. Henri Belleau, O. M. I., Vicar Apostolic of James Bay, had' to make a hasty trip by dogsled and train after he was notified of his mother's death here. He was at a distant mission when he received the word. God Can never be outdone in generosity. Any gift from us to God is rewarded by a grace or supernatural blessing of incompar- able superior value. Emptying our- selves in order to give ourselves completely to God, God answers our gift to Him by the best re- ward imaginable----Jesus in Holy Communion. Guardian Photo.

BIES Editor-in-Chief, Catholic Action of the South THE STORK STORY, AND OTHER DITTIES Girls instinctively love dolls; boys are fond of horses, but a little baby holds attraction and interest for both. Girls know where dolls come from; however, little boys are handicapped in their knowletge of how horses happen to be. A father, so the story goes, had taken little Junior to the hospital when the boy's mother was confined. Father and son were pacing up and down the hall of the delivery floor, the parent nervously taking big steps, Junior wonderingly trotting by his side. The doctor came out, reporting that everything was progressing nicely. The medical man felt lighthearted and happy; he bent over to Junior, and said, "Well, my little man, what would you like better to have--a little baby brother or a little baby sister} Only state St. A ndrew's Cathedral Parish and Very Rec. Msgr. Francis A. Allen are to be congratulated on the completion of the beautiful parish hall. Its spacious quarters and many facilities will prove of great value as the center of parish social activities. These are the compliments of a friend. your wish, and I'll see to it that you get what you want." To which considerate offer, the little man replied: "If it's all the same to you, Doctor, I'd like to have a Shetland pony." This was a fortunate reply for the doctor, for now he would not have to face Juio, r with the burden of cheating on his con- science if the baby should turn out to be of the opposite sex from what had been promised. The doctor could explain that he had not bargained for a pony. Since all children are interested in babies, they naturally want to know all about them, especially where they come from; Sometimes Daddy will get in bad for appear- ing stingy and mean in not want- ing to buy another one, when he can well afford it, and everybody else in the family is so eager to have another baby. What is the answer? You may hold God accountablewhich may be stating the truth, or it may be an awful falsehood. If it is a mm- representation, then hang your head in shame, walk away and weep. Maybe that will stop your little  one from bringing up the sore, bitter subject again. In all events, never give your child the "stork" recital, because, sooner or later, he will find out you de- ceived him, with the resultant con- clusion in his little mind: "Daddy (or Mother) is likely to deceive." When the inquisitive child is small, the story that babies come from heaven can be truthfully worked out; for, in fact, the soul God s hands in does come from heaven. At the age of six, seven or eight, you may have o develop this account a little more, if the question comes up. The age at which you may tell him the truth more fully, in figurative and dell- cats language, will "depend upon the child's rate of growth, both physical and mental, and the cir- cumstances surrounding his life. You should try to satisfy his curi- osity, at least for the time, as fully as possible. A description of the planting of a seed is the ground, how it germinates, then sprouts and so becomes a little plant that grows bigger and bigger, ought to help the explanation, to a certain degree. The account of the fa- ther's participation in procreation how he is the means of God's creative act--can be deferred till maturer years. The story of the seed developing under the moth- er's heart, after God has sent a living soul into it from heaven ought to impress a child with nat- ural, holy reverence. , By all means, don't let your children get this enlightenment from anyone but their mother. This instruction is too sacred for it to be entrusted to anyone else. Do not force it on them till they start wondering. If their own mother does not prepare them, they will look for the narration elsewhere, and they may find the tale told in a shocking and blighting fashion. The proverbial. Scottish father who, on a cold winter night, sneaked out to the back yard and fired a shot while his children were waiting for a visit from Santa Claus, was a cruel man. W.hen he returned to the living room, he made an end to his chil- dren's happy expectations by the announcement that Santa had just [committed suicide. It was a dam- aging untruthand so are some of the saint's sagas, as toId and enacted. St. Nicholas was a reality and, as a lovable old bishop, was kind to children. There is nothing wrong with impersonating and represent- ing characters, if it is done with dignity and proper impressiveness. To see Santa scaring and chasing children with a stick, and to make something terrifying out of him before the day he is to visit, is cheating an untrue and false situa- tion. Nervous and imaginative children should never be worked up tha way. Do not adopt a fearful version of Santa as a coercive measure for discipline. You will miss it after Christmas time is over. Not having a substitute, children are apt to grow more unruly. Picture the saint as a kindly old man, inter- ested in good children all the year. This is the truth.

In no way can we better prac- tice poverty of spirit, than in mak- ing good use of our time; for time once gone can never be recalled. Follow the will of your super- iors rather than your own in things you don't understand. In things which we don't have to believe, lean more to the side of belief. CONGRA TULA TIONS. . .
