CAMII,LUS, OF LLLLIS, " at theage of nineteen took service with his father, an Italian noble, against the .... l.tnks and after four years campaigning found lfimself, through his violent temper, reckless habits and inveterate passion for gambling a discharged soldier in straightened circumstances. A few words from a Capuchin friar brought about his conversion and he decided to enter the religious life. He was ordvined and formed the Community of the Servants of the Sick, which was confirmed in 1586 by the Pope. He died in 1614. TIIURSI)AY, JULY 19.ST. VINCENT DE PAUL. who was born in 1576, devoted his life to the care of the poor and the instruction of the rich in the ways of charity. Soon after his ordination he was captured by corsairs and carried into Barbary, where he converted his renegade master and with him escaped to France. The saint was made chaplain-general of the galleys of France, where his charity brought hope into those prisons, where only despair had reigned before. FRIDAY, JULY 20.ST.

Y., is the mc, s widely known o]easure resor on the. American continent.. Millions of ,tnm.e-1 nlenL seekers visit it each year, look- ing for the latest in thrills which human ingenuity is forever trying to create for lmded tastes. \\;Vithin sound of the grea scenic railway, with merry crowds filling the air with laughter as the, y "clip the (lip" or per- form other mu(l :feLts ]n search of new sensations; near the dancers as they glide round and round to gay music, and within sight of the Atlantic as it thunderously sweeps the sands in mo- notonous rhylhm, s an attraction in- finitely more wonderful, more power- ful and more inspiring than any--the shrine of Our Lady of Solace, West Seventeenth Street and Mermaid Av- enue, of which the Rev. Waltm' A. Kerwin is rector. Pilgrimage to Coney Island. A pilgrinmge to Cney Island! It sounds odd, but in this bumble little church, once a dance hall, one may obtain "all the indulgences the same its if he or she had traveled to the shrine of Our Lady of Consolation at San Valentine, Torio, Italy, which thou- sands of pilgrims from all parts of the world visit annually to obtain just such favors. Roman Slu'ine. it was October, 1906, that the late Rev. Joseph Francis Brophy, Coney Isl:md's first pastor, lovingly called "The Apostle of Coney island," was sent to lome by the late Bishop Mc- I)onnell of Brooldyn and obtained while there from Pope Plus X the great favor of having the church de- clared a Roman shrine. He also ob- tained the privilege of the Portiun- cula for the (lead, and many partial iudulgencies. Accompanying Father Brophy on that memorable occasion was the then Auxiliary Bishop of Brooldyn, Rt. Rev. George Mundelein, D.D., new Archbishop of Chicago, a great friend of the deceased pastor. In the near future it is prophesied that a magnificent basilica will mark the spot of te present Church of Our Lady of Solace, where pilgrims from all parts of the world will lay their sorrows and tribulations at the shrine of Our Lady and Pray for their dead. 'the shrine is particularly a suitable 1 place to remember "Our Beloved I' Dead" and Sovereigu Pontiffs have I granted in perpetuity many indul-' gences whi'qh may be applied also to the Souls of Purgatory. There is a Purgatorial Society attached to the shrine church which aims to promote among the living special charity xor the Souls of Purgatory. For member- slfip in it one may apply to Father Kerwin. KLAN STRONGLY OPPOSES HARDING WORLD COURT Fort Worth, June 30.The declara- tion that the Ku Klux Klan is strong- ly against President Harding's plan of a World Court or any other form of slliaflce with foreign nations, was made here today by Imperial Wizard HfW. Evans. in Ohio, the president's home State, more than 300.000 voter,, are members of the Ku Klux Klan, Dr. Evans said. He asserted the total membership of the organization had reached more than a million and that there were more Klansmen north of tlie Ma:t and Dixon line than in the SouttL Asked whether the Klan as a whole would endorse publicly any man for the Presidency, Dr. Evans replied it would not. FOUR BROTHERS JESUITS; MOTHER VISITATION NUN (By N. C. W. C. News Service) St. Louis, July 9.---Among the thir- ty-four members of the Society of Jesus ordained to the priesthood by the Most Rev. John J. Glemton, Arch- bishop" of St. Louis, was the Rev. Ed- ward A. Scott, of Chicago, the third member of his family to be ordained a Jesuit priest. A fom%h brother, Francis Scott, is now pursuing his studies in a Jesuit scholasticate and will be ordained two years hence. The mother of the four Jesuits is a member of the community of Visi- tation Convent, Springfield, lio., which she entered several years ago. The Rev. L. A. Wheeler, S. J., of Baltimore, who was among those or- dained, has two brothers in the priest- hood, the Rev. David Wheeler S. J,, president of Holy Cross College, Wor- cester, Mass., and the Rev. Francis Wheeler of Rochester, N. Y. Ineludedd in the class ordained here was the Rev. Simon Tang, said to be the first Chinese priest to be ordained in the United States. NEGLECTED INDUSTRY THE AMERICAN HOME President Har(Eng, in the address delivered on the occasion of the John Howard l?ayne celebration, made a statement that is true enough, but not specific enough. He said: "We have developed much thought to improve all production, and a lhou- sand tlfings that make :for the ad- vance of civilization. We have too often overlooked the fact tlmt, after all. the greatest single industry in America is the managJnent of the American home." Not all elements of our population, however, are equally guilty in this respect. While a president, who has his eyes on a second term, may noiJ wish to dig into sore spots, we have no reason to conceal the fact that next to the religious debacle, the economic conditions must be blamed for the neglect of what Mr. Ilarding is pleased to call "the greatest singl ' industry in America." Women have been $oreed and are being forced out of the home. The heads of only the minority of families earn a sufficient income to permit them to keep their daughters at home. Girls become wage earners at an early age; in many ease this leads to a loss of tim instinct, love and knack for homemaking. The knowledge ',and abilities necessary for conducting a home properly are not obtained. Our grandmothers knew not alone more about cooking, sewing, stitching than t]ae young married women of today, but even of hygiene, in spite of the fact that this science has made won- derful strides (luring the past 100 years. Hygiene is taught in the school, and forgotten like so many other things teachers and textbooks force upon more or less willing pupils. The hygiene of former times was a part of a family lore; it possessed the sanction of family authority and expe- rience, and that authority was held in high esteem, while today there is very l{tle respect left for authority of any Hind. Autlority is as necessary to the ]mme as it is to the state. Authority must, however, be embodied in a rep- resentative. According to Catholic teaching, the father is the head of the family. But he, too, has been de- throned, and this is another reason for the failure of the modern home. The guilt of having brought about the disintegration of family and home lies with those who accepted the ate- mizing theories of liberalism. The French Socialist, Louis Blanc, said some "70 years ago that the great Rev- olution had begun with the attack @n the authority of the Pope and the Church in the sixteenth century; that it had been continued in the eight- eenth century, when thrones were overthrown, while it would be car- ried to its last end in our time by the d,struction of the family. While on all sides the cry: "Beware of com- nmnistsi" is is l)eing raised, the dis- integration of the very roots of the family and the home, which are the pillars of society, is hardly sensed, or at least not realized in its full grav- ity. Mr. ttarding laid his finger on a sore spot, but did not dare to call it a cancer and to demand a drastic cure. Nor did former Vice President Marshall do much better in his ad- dress delivered at the closing exercises of a college in South Carolina. What he said is more epigramatic than the utterance of President Harding quoted, but he, too, neglected to drive the scalped into the nasty sore and to proclaim the necessity of euttirt away the proud flesh. Both men be-- long to a school of thought which. places its hopes on a humanitarian philosophy of life, based on the con- ception that man is his own savior, that le needs no mediator and that, pursuing this course, he is fast up- preaching a wonderful dawn. In splte of the great disillusionment of tim pas few years men professing tKis philosophy persevere in the blind hope that by applying their own rem- edies they will be able to arrest the social decay, the existence of which they cannot deny. Bu they will fail" in this as they have failed in their ef- forts to establish a just and firm peace among the natlons of Europe, and as they have failed in all attempts to as- suage social unfed. Only when they will be willing to tell the people that they must return to God and His laws, may they hope for a restoration of society, which stands in such "great need of being healed that the saintly ' Plus X proclaimed: "Unless we re- formfi reconstruct society, we must despair of the future."--C. B. of C. F.  /:!i As a general thing, the only people who would be shocked by naughty books are too respectable to read them. The tough part of it is that the girl who won a prize by mking a com- plete change of dress in 12 seconds probably intends to die with the secret.
