The brain is the Positive pole of a com- plicated battery. The liver is the neg- ative pole.' The Cleveland doctor who advanced this view before the Inter- national Surgical Congress in Lon- don says it eliminates the idea of a supernatural soul. It is St'range that some people are exceedingly anxious to get rid of the idea of a supernat- ural soul; anxious to be id of their past when they quit this life. would be a generous thing to do to think of somebody less 4ortunate, and to lighten his own load out of grati- tude for your own good fortune. What I am getting at is this: Scatteret throughout the country 'are many mis- sionary priests who not only neve get a vacation, but who are actually "hard up" for the necessaries of life, a square meal and a suit of clothes. The Dollar Club of the Catholic Church Extension ociety (180 No. Wabash 'Ave., Chicago), is designed to help such priests. Why not send along a small cheque as a "vacation thankoffering," figuring it on a basis of say, five per cent of the estimated cost of your trip ? You'll feel better about the trip.

The body, according to his no- tion, acts as it is acted upon. We ae helpless machines, lriven by forces which we cannot control. My reaction to this nonsense impels me to say hard things of the doctor's wild flight of fancy; but I refrain. Why do I refrain ? Because ] am not driven by forces which I cannot control. "We are not merely electric machines governed by a liver. It is true that some peo- ple seem to be governed by their liv- ers. But that does not explain the nature of life. It explains only the nature of livers. Efficiency of Protest. The best way to reach an offend- ing editor is by way of the circulation department. When an editor is in the habit of publishing statements offen- sive to his Catholic readers, there is no use in merely deploring the fac:, and very little use in merely wri% to him about it. The most effective thing to do is to write to the pub- lisher, tell him to stop sending hi paper, and say why. Even when edi- tors are not in the habit of offend- ing Catholics in this way, it would be wise to adopt this course for an oc- casional offense. It will prevent the offense from becoming a habit. Tn Catholic readers of a Canadian mag- azine proved the efficacy of this pro- cedure the other day. The first in- stallment of an anti-Catholic serial appeared, and the readers' revolt was so eloquent that the serial was imme- diately withdrawn. If Catholics swal- low one insult and come back for an- other, they deserve all they get. We do not have to implore people not to insult us. Far less do we have to support them whilst they are doirg it. So Would the Priest k If we thought more often of the good things which we enjoy and which are denied to other people, I think we should be more contented with life.

I I I I|1 By Rev. Dr. Wilhelm Baron yon Captaine (N. C. W. C. News Service) Cologne, July 16.Nothwithstand- ing the poverty of Germany, efforts are being made to prevent historic buildings and works of art from fall- mg into decay for lack of proper care. This problem is an acute one for German Catholics since many of the fine old churches and cathedrals of the country are concerned. The governments of the various German states, notwithstanding their estant worship and smaller sums have been granted for the restoration and preservation of many churches throughout the country. In Cologne itself the famous stam- ed glass windows in the Cathedral which were removed during the war, have now been nearly all restored. A sum of 10,100,410 marks have been raised by private enterprise for the p;eservation of the Cologne Cathedral and plans have been made to raise 40,000,000 more during the coming year. .PRE-REFORMATION CENSER IS FOUND .... IN ENGLISH MARSH (By N. C. W. C. News Service.) London, July 24.Declared to be the finest examples of silver work el the mediaeval period, a silver censer and incense boat belonging at one time to. the ancient Benedictine Ab- bey of Ramsay, have been placed in the national collection in London. The manner in which these relics of the Catholic past in England were found is interesting. In 1850 a marsh, known as Whittlesea Mere was befffg drained, and in the mud at the bottom were found a number of an- tiques. Among these were the silver- gilt censer and incense boat. From signs on these articles they are be- lieved to have belonged to the treas- ury of Ramsey Abbey ir Hunting- I donshire, which was pillaged at the time of the Reformation.
