Recently she was dis- cussing with her employer the merry- go-round that was running up on the corner. "Nawsuh, Mr. Malcolm," she said, "nawsuh, I don't ride on none o' dem things. Why, Mr. Malcolm, I've seen some o' these here fool niggers git on dat thing and ride as much as a dol- lar's worth, and git off at the very same place they gits on at; an' I sez to 'era, 'Now you spent yo' money, nigger, whah yo' been?" Stamps and Brains. The money-changing and stamp- vending machine designed to take care of the stamp business in public places, perfected by W. F. Moriarity of the Service Machine Corporation of Chicago, has many of the qualities of the human mind; in fact, it might aptly be described as "the machine with a brain." These machines are being placed in the leading hotels of the North and East, and have attract-. ed wide attention and made many "stamp machine fans," thus supplant- ing the stamp business in drug stores and hotels, long since a decided nuisance to the proprietors. These are being installed at the rate of ten a day and soon will be operating in Boston. The machine will accept any coin from a nickel to a fifty-cent piece, and works somewhat on the principle of the cash register, except that it is fool-proof. It will throw out spur- ious coins, slugs and foreign money of any kind. The machine actually takes care of itself, records each transaction ,does its own bookkeep- ing ,and acts as cashier. It makes change and throws out one or more stamps as desired by the customer, all by simply pressing a button. is arranged to supply stamps of dif- ferent denominations. Using Mule Sense. An old southern judge lost a mule for which he offered a reward. For days th whole neighborhood searched for that hybrid hawss with- out success. That reward was in de- mand. After everybody else had given up the idea of ever finding the animal ,the town no-account came up the street one day leading the long lost Aleck. "How in the name of the pink,toed prophet did you ever find him, Ben " asked the astonished jur- ist. "Well suh jedge, Ah'll tell yeh," said the Hookworm One. "Ah jes' asked mase'f whur would Ah go ef Ah was er mewl. An' Ah went. An' he had." Another Tag on Auto. The Department of Justice is con- sidering remedies for the H. C. L. Among other things they advocate is the classifying of essentials and non-essentials in every-day life, giving special attention to automo- biles. One solution will strike terror to many of our Little Rock autoists. It is to license only those autos paid for in cash. Such autos must carry a "Paid in Cash" tag prominently displayed. The bankers tell us that if the mortgagee autoists of Little Rock re not allowed on our streets, ours will be quite the deserted village. Such a regulation would take all the interest out of neighborhood gossip as to just how the Browns or Greens can afford to own (?) an auto. Americanization at Home. They were riding into the city the other morning. "I tell you," said the substantial citizen, "Americanization is the only thing. We've got to take all these foreigners and teach them to live like we live ;they stay herded by them- selves altogether too much/' "I hear an American family has moved in on the next street to yours," calmly interrupted the hum- ble citizen at his side. "Who let them in?" demanded the substantial citizen. \\; Arkansas Travellers. They now ride on the fastest trains, tell the latest jokes, sell the most goods and are 100 per cent sober, in- dustrious and honest, the ear-marks of all good fellows. Mistook His Color.

Apropos of the modern fashions Senator Walsh told a story at a re- cent dinner. "A struggling businessman," he said, "came home one evening with a joyful countenance.

"A steely glitter came into the woman's eyes. " 'No you don't, Joseph,' she said, I'll have just the same kind of dresses all the other women are wearing.'" IRISH RELIGIOUS SPIRIT IS STRIKINGLY SHOWN IN TRAGED (By N. C. W. C. News Service.) London, May 17.mIllustrating the importance attached by Catholics to the last Sacraments, and also the deep religious spirit of the ]rish people, the Daily Chronicle has given prominence to an account of the last moments of James McCarthy, a baker of Thurle, who was recently shot dead in the night in that town. The story recalls the death of the Lord Mayor of Cork, who, after receiving the last rites, forgave his murderer and commended his own soul to God. McCarthy, according to the Daily Chronicle, had received a threatening message some days before his mur- der. In spite of this warning, he went to the door himself in answcr to a violent knocking. On the threshold he encountered two men who asked his name and immediately on hearing it fired with revolvers. The Daily Chronicle thus completes the tragic story: "A sister cried out: 'Poor Jimmie has been murdered,' and sped out into the moonlit night for a priest. One shot was aimed at her, but without effect. Inside a dramatic scene fol- lowed. The dying man staggered into the kitchen and collapsed before the fireplace. A brother, raising his head. said: 'Say to God you are sorry for your sins, and ask Him to let you into Heaven. I'll say an act of contrition and let you think the words.' James was just conscious enough to nod and smile feebly, and then his life flick- ered out." FRENCH CANDIDATES FOR AMERICAN SCItOLARSHIP (By N. C. W. C. News Service.) Washington, D. C., May 25.--Miss Mary M. Finn of New York, repre- senting the National Catholic Wel- fare Council, has been selected by the American Council on Education as a member of its Committee on France- American Exchange of Scholarships and Fellowships, and vil[ sail for France in June to arrange for the at- tendance of French young women in merican colleges. Miss Finn and Miss Virginia New'comb of the Insti- tute of International Education will examine candidates for these schol- arships during July. In the season just closed 125 French young women came to the United States to enter colleges., Of this number *8 became students of Catholic institutions. In addition to board, room and tuition, several of the Catholic colleges gave the young women funds for traveling expenses and for entertainment during the Christmas and Easter holidays. The National Catholic Welfare Council is endeavoring to provide congenial em- ployment for the young women who remain here during he coming vaca- tion. Miss Finn is well known as a writer of short stories. She is the sister of Rev. Father William J. Finn, con- ductor of the Paulist choir of New York. Vice is a sin in the sight of God, and is considered a crime in the eyss of the law; but, unfortunately, persons who continually indulge in vice become calloused and do not look upon their misdeeds as crime.

Fry onion in butter until yellow, add flour and stir until smooth. Gradually stew tomato, then add shrimp and serve. This is a good chating dish lunch for Sunday night. En glis Potatoes. When roasting beef try this way of preparing white potatoes: Peel and slice six or eight good sized potatoes, slices to be about three-quarters of an inch thick. About an hour and a half before the roast is done remove the pan from the oven and stand these slices all along the inside edge; it won't do any harm to tilt a few against the meat. Retua the pan to the oven and contintie baking till clone. The suet spatters the slices and crisply brooms them, while the meat imparts a splendid flavor. Inside they ate like French fried potatoes: Hope you will like them. Creamed Oysters. Clean one pint of oysters and cook until plump and the edges begin to curl.

Soak 1 cup split peas over night. Parboil in water they were soaked in, then discard water. Melt 1 tablespoon of butter in saucepan and fry the peas till they begin to brown and stick to pan.

DEATH OF MOTHER ABEL. (By N. C. W. C. News Service.) Washington, D. C., May 20.--Moth- er Mary St. Abel, of the Sisters o the Presentation of the Blessed Vir- gin, who died suddenly at the Apos- tolic Mission House here a few days ago, was one of the numerous Catho- lic Sisters who were driven from France during the atheistic uthreak against the Church in that country fifteen years ago. She was a woman of exceptional culture, and before her enforced exile had been a teacher ir France. After coming to the United States with many members of her community she took charge of th housekeeping fr the Paulists here. Four other Sisters assisted her. Mother St. Abel was a Breton and had been a member of her Order for thirty years. MOTHER. The following from an essay on "Our Mother," by Christopher Morley, i worth quoting: "There is nothing more beautiful than our mother's face; no memotT more dear than her encircling tender- ncss. She built the earth around us and arched us over with the sky. The passion of her love compelled the rude laws of life to stand back when we were soft and helpless. She defied gravity that we might not fall. She set aside hunger ,sleep and fear that we might have plenty. She tamed her own spirit and crushed her own weak- ess that we might be strong. And when we passed down the laughing street of childhood and turned that corner that all must pass, it wat her hand that waved good-by." LAYMEN'S BOARD OF DIRECTORS TO MEET (By N. C. W. C. News Service.) K Washington, May 2.--The fact that more than 70 per cent of the Catholic laymen of America are not member of any Catholic society will not prevent their full participation in the great work of the National Catholic Lay- men's Council, according to an an- nouncement made here by Michael J.
