Moreover, it wouhl be easy to be good. But all is very different now. Be- cause we are Adam's and Eve's c]fil- (lien, we are all born with a sin on our soul. This is called original sin, for it comes down to us from our first parents. The first sin not only closed the gates of the Garden of Paradise, but also the gates of Heaven. Only God's adopted children are in Heaven. What could Adam and Eve do to get back sanctifying grace? Nothing. What couM they do to open the gates of Heaven? Nothing Then can none of us go to Heaven? God is so tender and kind that as Adam and Eve left the garden, cry- ing. He had pity on them and told them that some day a woman would be born who would have a Son so great that He wouht open again the gates of Heayen. This promise was Adam's and Eve's only joy through the rest of their long lives Because this woman's Son, called the Redeemer, was going to come, God gave back to Adam and Eve sanctifying grace and He also gave this grace to many persons after :them. But until the Redeemer came, Heaven was locked and the good peo- ple that died had to wait in a place GUARDIAN, SATUR responded Captain Marden, glancing out of the white-curtained window. Then his eyes fell upon the calendar on the wall. He started, attd an ex- pression of deep grief over-shadowed Ihis handsome bronzed countenance. "The 19th of August," he said hoarsely. Stella's dark eyes filled with tears. I Going to her father's side, she laid her lnmd caressingly upon his shoul- der. "Dad, I don't really think Mary is dead," site said softly. "Someltow lately, I have a very strong feelinl that she is still alive. I have prayed each day to our Blessed Mother to bring her back to us." On the 19th of August. eighteen years ago, the Pearl of Asia, an Amer- ican merchantutan bound for Ceylon, had foundered during one of those terrific storms peculiar to the treach- erous Indian Ocean, Capt. Marden's wife and the 1-year-old twins, Mary and Stella, were on board. The cap- tain, aided by his first officer, suc- ceeded in saving his wife and little Stella. The next day they were picked lilt by a honteward-bound steamer. Little Mary, however, together with the second office]', who had taken charge of lie]', were antong the miss- ing.

A loud rumble of thunder was dis- tinguished above the roar of the break- ors and a stronger gust of wind tore in at the window, wildly tossing the white curtains. The captain aroused himself. "Guess we're in for it, girlie, he muttered. "I'd better shut the win- dows and make everything safe and snug. It's going to blow some, or I'm no sailor."

Oxford, August 1.--One of the most excellent Catholic institutions in this country is the house of Begbroke Place, Oxford, which some ten months or so ago was opened as a primary place of study for converts Anglicanism, and other religious bodies, to test their vocation for the priestlmod. Cost of Conversion. ]n a country such as England, where tim proportion of Catholics is small, there has been found an urgent need for some home where clergymen land other men of education, who have come" over to the Catholic church, may get their bearings, so to speak. Some of them, particularly in the case of convert clergymen, are made homeless and often penniless by their submis- sion to the Catholic Church. For want 6f such a home as Bob- broke Place, in the past some converts have had to abandon all hope of the priesthood, and seek at once a liveli- hood in the world of which they have had so little experience. Begbroke Place offers just this kind of home, as a clearing house, where converts may get their new bearings; where their Bishop Kinsman's Story OF HIS CONVERSION "SALVE MATER" "HAIL MOTHER!" "Salve Mater"--'Hail Mother !"--is the title of the book just published (by Longmans, Green & Co., New York), in which Frederick Joseph Kins- man, until recently the Protestant Episcopal Bishop of Delaware, tells the story of his conversion to the Catholic Church. The book was written in the silence and solitude of the woods of Maine, where Dr. Kinsman retired after publicly resigning his Bishopric, and renounc- ing the orders of the Episcopal Church, and its Com- munion. Ten days after it was finished--an event which the author describes as "the last act of a life that is ended"Dr. Kinsman was received into the Church.
