A Catholic doctor who has no zeal for the salvation of souls. who thinks of nothing beyond what his scalpel touches, who has no desire to acquaint himself with the Catholic principles that should guide llim in his l)ractice, is as nmch an anomaly as the Catholic teacher who is not inter- ested ill the religlous phase of her work and who is wholly intent in in- structing her j)upils ill that secular knowledge which they might acquire even more thoroughly in the public school. Unfortunately we have ex- amples of both these anomalies. Of course the chief reason for this dearth of Catholic doctors is the same that accounts for the small number of Catholic leaders in every department of our civic life, viz., the neglect of our young people to avail themselves of the facilities for higher education placed at their disposal.

(By N C. W. C News Service.) Paris, Aug. 12.--Catholic workers ill France--men and women gave proof at the recent "Social Week" at Caen and at the Congress of French \\;Vork- ingwomen's and Employes' Catholic Syndicates, held ill Paris, that they intend to translate into action the Church's proposal for the solution of social problems, adbering to the Cath- olic princil)les and doctrines which Monsignor I.emonnier, Bishop of Bay- eux, ill his recent pastoral on "Cath- olic Social Action," ileclared should be [ their guide. Resolutions adopted by the Na- tional Congress of Professional Cath- olic Women's Syndicates demonstrated tlmI these organizations are firmly de- cided to play an active and effective part in the movement for the material and moral betterment of working wolnen. tt was determined that several re- forms and improvements ill the pres- ent conditions and the prospects of female workers should be undertaken at once. Some of the objects com- prised in the program adopted were these : Proposed Working Reforms for Women. Tim Dressmakers' Union has de- cided to urge all kindred associations in the provinces to initiate a canl- paign against night work for dress- makers, embroiderers, lacemakers and other similar craftswomen. The eln- l ployers' syndicates town are to Of each be requested_ to abolish night work. Newspapers are to be counseled to inform their readers to have all altera- t tions and repairs in their clothing made during the dull season--ibis to )revent a slackening of work, Workingwomen ill tile provinces are instructed not to give extra hours of service, since this is harmful to their health and detrimental to the proper care of theh' boules. Exception is. of course, to be made ill cases of pressing need, and without exceeding the lim- its fixed by law. Training schools for apprentices al- ready established in Paris for seam- stresses, enlbroiderers, laundresses, flower makers and the like, are to be extended to the provinces. These training schools have been a great success in Paris and several big era- dangers, but it would devoutly to be have our Catholic medi- ake their entire course Catholic atmosphere.

Canon Ritchie accolnl)anied the pfl- gl'ilnage, and was ill e, losP, toucll with the four persons who are sahl to have becn cured. The firsl of these, a Mr. Martin Graham. a Glasgow C, atlmlic, . whose name has already been mentiolled Ill this connection, was badly crushed between railway cars some six years ago. tte finds himself completely cured, and able to walk without the use of tile stick that 1)reviously was necessary to help him shrug. A girl wh2se foot was badly twisted as the result of an accident, had to wear a Slmcially made boot. Her llmb has bet;pule nornlal, and she has had .to discard the special boot. The fourth case was that of a Dumbarton Cath- olic, one Mr. Charles Sweenie. who was so crippled with rheumatoid arthritis that he had to hobble along on crutches. Mr. Sweenie went on the pilgrimage to Lourdes. with his crutches. He has now returned to Scotland, and his crutches have been left behind at Lourdes. The most striking of these four cures--though all are remarkable--Is Ginnell, M. P., on a visit to this what seems to ns tile of the motive ira- to forbid Archbishop ill Ireland.

After the second opera- tton the foot twisted, and the girl was only ablq to get about by the aid of crutches and a specially made boot. She was incurable, the surgeons said. her. and nothing more could be done for It was in this condRion that she was helped into the waters at Lourdes. "There is a little statue of Our Lady at the end of the bath," she said, "and I ktsaed it. I kissed it a sec6nd time, and as I did so a severe pain shot through the injured limb. Something seemed to crack behind the knee and I felt my leg straighten out. I kissed the statue a tlrlrd time, and instantly all pain vanished. Then I walked out from the waters unaided, and forgot that I had ever suffered from any in- firmity." OUR MOTTO: "THE GUARDIAN IN EVERY HOMEI" vided a fund to afford unmarried mem- bers all opportunity to l)ut aside money for their wedding day. Bishop of Bayeux's Warning. Recalling the words of M. Henri Lorin, founder of the "Social Week," that "it is only by loyally and rigor- ously adhering to the Catholic tradi- tion that we may hope to reach our goal," Monsignor Lemonnier, Bishop of Bayeux, in the letter to which ref- erence hv. been made ill a foregoing paragraph, says: "The revolutionary turn of the labor agitation has originated in the neglect of Catholic doctrines, for which are substituted the principles of an anti- Christian philosophy. Whenever em- ployers and workers cease to be in- spired by the Christian doctrines of the Divine Fatherhood, of the immor- tality of the soul, of the life to come; and of charity which binds all men together--which ,form the basis of human brotherhood--all then become engrossed in mere earthly pursuits, and the enjoyment of earthly posses- sions being their sole end, violence is the only means to obtain them." Czech Schismatic Says "High Mass" in the Evening SERVICE AT FOOT OF JOHN HUSS STATUE WHILE THE MILITARY BANDS PLAY (By N. C. W. C. News Service. I Prague, July 20.---Evening "high mass" at the foot of John Huss's statue, to the accompaniment of mili- tary bands and the singing of sec- tarian llymns to Catholic melodies, rep- resents one device by which the chief dignitary of the new "national church" of Czecllo-Slovakia is attempting to entice faithful Catholics into this strange fold. This "mass" was said by Bohunlil Brodsky-Zahradnik. fornmr priest and monk. now a ministerial counselor in the-governmenL of President Masaryk. By diligent endeavor this apostate suc- ceeded in getting the servlees of two military bands. These descanted mer- rily'to the Hussite singiug, thus draw- ing a great concourse of the curious, who came not to worship but to wateh. Only One Ofticial Present. The niinlsters of the Governnlent, as well as foreign guests, were invited to the ceremonies, but none came. The only important official to al)pear was General Palls, who soon departed, however, when he saw that it was nothing more than a gathering of idle. spectators. l)ux'ilg tile services members of the now cllnrch were alert ill preserving order. One man wearing oil the lapel of his coat the insignia of the Sokol athletic association, which has mauy Catholics on its roster, approached an onlooker and directed the latter to remove his bat. This spectator de- clared that he was not present lit the "mass," bat only waiting the arrival of the next street car. The Sokol socieies, it may be ob- served, are giving every assistance to the new church. Catholics in these organizations seem not to realize that they, by their adhesion to the Sokols are giving aid and comfort to the war i Books of Interest THE BRIDES OF CHRIST. trays in her life the life of Our Lord. By Mother Mary Potter A new book abounding in unction and piety. There are many so-called spiritual books pretending to have an especial appeal to Religious,.but "The Brides of Christ" will appeal to every Sister, to every Nun, to every Novice, as well as to those women of the world who are striving for Spiritual peection. Ecclesiastical Authorities will look far before they find a guide book which is at one time spiritual in tone, simple in language, and practical in its direc- tions. This little volume of one hundred and twenty pages combines all the features sought by the director or con- fessor of nuns. It is a guide to the daily duties of the Sister. The direc- tions are such that they apply equal- ly to any community. It consists of three parts, which the author entitles "The Spouse of Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament," "The Spouse of Jesus Crucified," and "The Spouse of Jesus Glorified." Nun As the Bride, Part One treats of the Nun as the Bride of our Eucharistic Lord. He has chosen her as His Spouse, and He will, because of this, lend her all His power and support. In tm, He expects from her absolute fidelity. She must co- operate with His Grace. She must have the "faith that will move moun- tains,' 'and that confidence and trust in Him engendered by such faith. Be- cause of hei" love, her confidence, and her trust, she will naturally obey His slightest wish, as expressed through His representatives, her immediate superiors. Sorrowing and Suffering. Part Second treats of the Passion of Our Lord. The true religious per- against their own faith. Government Aids Y. M. C. A. President Masaryk has furnished Hobart Archbishop every facility fro" the introduction of Suffers ln{llgnll;y L t.he foreign sects into Czecho-Slovakia, Near Irish Home and the Y. M. C. A: and the Y. V. C. A. of course, have not failed to take tile fullest advantage of this opportunity. There are many of these religious workers ill the country today--and they are all well l)aid. The campaign of proselyHsm is everywhere active. In furthering their propaganda these two American organizations have tlle use of nuluerous autonlobiles and gasoline supplied free of charge by the Government. It is almost iul- possible for native citizens of lhe country to buy this fuel withou! per- nnssion and help from the state. The club lmuses conducled by lhe Y. M. C A. serve as resting place for the soldiers and as cenlers of sectari;tn en(leavor. Recenlly, representatives of the Y. .Xl C. A. visited Archbishop Kordac of Prague to solicit the "co-operation of tile Catholic clergy In their work ill the field of Christiau action." Arch- bishop Kordac assured them that he wouhl feel profound satisfaction at the conversion of souls to Christianity, but declined to collaborate with them. He declared that the Catholic Church is the most telex;ant of religious bodies ill the sense of tolerantia religiosa, but cannot be careless in regard to what may be theologically termed tolerantla dognmtiea, for Ibis would be to admit relative truth cud not absolute truth. In addition to the sectarian agencies ah'eady mentioned, the Salvation Army is liberally assisted by the Gov- ermnent, from whicb its workers re- ceive the free use of automobiles and donafions of gasoline ]n fact, the Government ]s quite generous and zealous ill behalf of alien propagators of the "true gospel," but for the native Catholic Czechs and Slovaks, who have representatives in the national assembly, there is not even recogni- tion, notwithstanding that without the support of the Catholic party the pro- gram of President Masaryk and his as- sociates would be defeated. HELD UP FOR FORTY MINUTES BY BRITISH SOLDIERYOTHER OUTRAGES. tBY N. C. W. C.) News Service.) Dublin. lreland, Aug. 10. Most Rev. Dr. Barry, Archbishop of Hobart, Tas- menial was held up for forty minutes by British soldiers near Midleton, County Cork, the 1)lrthplace of His Grace. They searched his motor car for' lirearms, which, naturally, they (lid not discover. Then the officer approached the Archbishop" and Very Ray. E. Brauer. secretary to Arch- bishop Kelly, of Sydney, and said lie would search them for firearms. The Archlfishop gave the officer his card. On reading it the officer asked: "Where is Hobart?" "In Tasmania," replied the Arch- I)ishop. But the officer was not en- lightened by the reply. His Grace then showed his gold pectoral cross, chain, and episcopal ring. These con- veyed as little indication of the rank of His Grace to the officer's mind as the word Hobart did of its position on the map of the world. He persisted In his attempt to search the Arch- bishop. His Grace refused to be searched. The offtcer then sent one of his men to consalt a superior of- ficer. When the messenger returned the officer, without a word of apology, p allowed the Arcbhisimp to proceed. I ttis Grace, in all interview, ex- ] I pressed indignation at the outrage ] l)erpetrated upon him and his guest. He has made a strong protest to the nilitary authorities. Cardinal on Stat of Ireland. His Eminence Cardinal Logue, ill a letter read in the churches of the Armagh diocese, states that the bishops had ordered a novena in prep- aration for the Feast of the Assump- It was a life not of luxury and ease but one of sorrow and suffering-- sorrow and suffering for the welfare of others. His Spouse must suffer as He did, for she is to bear Him a family of souls saved through her labor. This implies patience in trials, humility, and, above all, self-renuncia- tion and voluntary mortification. Glorified Life. The fruit of all this love, both active and contemplative, tends to draw the religious ever closer to Him, and will finally unite her to Him forever in heaven, as the Spouse of Jesus Glorified. The masters of the spiritual life, St. Francis de Salcs, Rodriguez, and others, can be obtained only in a strange tongue, or m poor translation: Their tone is too high, they apply to conditions other than those which we meet in tlte active communities of our day and country. "The Brides of Christ," is a guide to the daily duties of Sisters, and equally applies to any and all com- munities. In the book, which is richly inter- spersed with quotations from the Sacrcd Scriptures, every duty of the day, prayer, meditation, visits to the Blessed Sacrament and the thousaml and one tasks that arise in the course of the (lay are mentioned. "The Brides of Christ" is a book that the spiritual director or con- fesor of a community Sisters cannot afford to leave off his desk. If read and meditated upon by the Sisters themselves it will do much to make them true "Brides of Christ." Bound in cloth. 128 pages, 12 me. Price $1.25, net; $1.35 postpaid.

Police and military raided the dwelling house of Miss Coyle, a Catholic teacher of h'ish at Balagh, near Roscommon, while she was on holiday. They broke in the door, smashed the locks on her trunks, and scattered the contents about. That night the room in which hese things were, was set afire, and her furniture and other belongings burned. At the close of the Retreat and In- dulgence at Drumshanbo, on the bor- ders of Leitrim and Cavau, motto" cars bringing people to the devotions were held up at the point of the bayonet and the occupants searched. The Irish Trade Union Congress has declined to affiliate with the In- ternational Socialist Bureau. This de- cision is mainly attributed to articles by Rev. Peter Finley, S. J., Dublin, a very distinguished theologian, in which he showed that Catholics could not without sill be associated with the objects of continental socialism. Th= congress viewed '"with disgust" the attacks on Catholic workers in Belfast shipyards, and on non-Catholic trade unionists. Prlesta May Arbitrate. Contradicting a newspaper report, Archbishop Gilmartin of Tuam states that no diocesan rule has been made by him forbidding priests from at- tending conventions to establish arbi- tration courts, nor has he forbidden priests to participate ill these courts, Each priest can do what he thinks "': best in each case that arises.

While this is the first fulTnal and direct appeal made by the Women's Council, Miss Regan reports that already hundreds of women's organizations have come forth voluntarily to enlist in the N. C. C.
