Main St. COLU THE SOUTHERN GUARDIAN MBUS AND HIS GREAT DISCOVERIES (Continued from page I) 1)resence of Norsemen on tile soil of North America." ]Iowever, let us admit tlaat the Norsemen and {)tilers (lid know of America, is this reason to rob C<gumhus of Iris glory? Of what avail were these obscure discoveries? Of what henetit to mankind? Did Columbus, perchance, know of them? On the contrary, history tells us that the learned men of the time ridiculed the idea that the earth was round, or that itwas possible to go beyond cer- taiu fixed limits. Is it reasonable, then, to suppose Columbus alone should have heard of such discovery? No; we must believe that Columhus came to his conclusions after 'long hours of deel) and earnest study, for history tells that there were only a very few who would agree with the then theoretical reasoning of Colum- hus. Hence his was not a purely hap- hazard expedition; he was not acci- dentally thrown upon unknown shores, but his was au expedition planned and courageously executed, in spite of great opposition. Coln- bus not only had the ability to get tltere, but he had the ability to get back, bringing back with him the proofs of his discovery, continually living up to his motto, "With the help of God I will persevere," and it is to this faithful perseverence that we bear witness today. His was not a journey of the North Pole type, productive of no practical benefit to mankind, but a journey un- dertaken to put an end to the difficult and perilous voyage to India, and, though the new route was longer, yet he hoped that more propitious seas would more than compensate for the length of the journey and thereby eliminating the horrors and dangers of the African coast. And how nearly correct were his calculations, consid- ering the knowledge and instruments of his day, or the proof will show that he was on a straight line to In- dia. But an Almighty Providence saw fit to place an obstacle in his path, and that obstacleAmerieahas proven to be of farmore benefit to humanity than could have been the accomplish- ment of a journey to India. Columbus, like the majority of the world's great men, came of lowly parentage, his father being a poor candlemaker, but young Christopher was not to be bound to the making of small lights, and hence he chose the sea for the display of his energy and made numerous voyages to all parts of the known world, nor were his leisure hours spent in idleness or use- less recreation, for he used them for i ' study in those branches that would better fit him to take a commanding Moving and ,Storage position in his profession.

TELEPHONE 576 I strove continually, to master, and it was in the pursuit if these studies that he was convinced of the earth's shape and that a voyage to India hy the western route was a possibility. But he was poor; he must needs look to others for support. He argued and gave his proofs to many without avail. He was scoffed at and ridi- culed as one mentally unbalanced; his theories as the visionary vapors of an abnormal intellect, But after years of fruitless endeavor he persuaded the good Queen Isabella of Spain to as- sist him, though the court of Spain was bankrupt following the wars with the Moors, yet history tells us that so tmpressed was she with the learn- ing and earnestness of Columbus that she pawned her jewels in order to fit up an expedition. His expedition set sail from Palos on Friday, August 3, after Columbus and all his crew had received the sacraments. During the voyage wlfich followed Columhus called into action all the attributes of a truly great commander, for he had 'to deal with mutiny, nostalgia and de- spair, but he was capable of handling each situation as it arose until finally, on the night of October I, 1492, Co- lumhus saw in the distance a tiny light moving to and frothat light which has steadily grown and grown until now its radiance encircles the whole globe, penetrating to innermost recesses, dispelling the gloom of ty- rannical darkness, beckoning to every down-trodden people and making light the path to a better and happier existence in this, our own free Anaer- ica, thus again duplicating that great light of Scripture which led a people out of bondage into a land of milk and honey. But Columbus, fearful, un. willing to trust his sight or to arouse false hopes, kept his peace, and early the next morning, October ]2, a sailor on the lookout saw land and the pent-up hopes of realization gave vent in that glad shout of "Landl Landl" a shout destined to be ecltoed and re-echoed to the present time, when thousands yearly sight the Statue of Liberty and cry out "Landl Land of our dreamsl Land of prom- isel" That is what this land has been since that memorable October of 1492. What nmst have been tile emotions in tile breasts of those despairing 1hen. and how nluch more intense must have been those of their conl- mander--joy and satisfaction at the successful culmination of his efforts, gratitude to God. who in o magniti- cent and singular a manner answered his prayers, sacritices, and we are told upt)n landing all threw thentselves upon their knees, kissing the ground and thanking a beneticent Creator, while Cohmfl)us holding aloft the nmnubrin of his sword, fashioned as a cross, christened the new-found land San Salvador, thus dedicating it to the Savior of tile world. After further explorations he re- turned to Spain for his reward. He was received with open arms and his prowess extolled on every side. But Cohnnbus was uot satisfied. Again and again he visited the scenes of his triumph, while his enemies were at work in the court of Spain, and fin- ally, as a result of their intrigues, Co- lumbus was branded a crinfinal and hrought back to Spain in chains, where, soon after, the physical tor- ntents consequent upon exposure and the mental agony produced by the display of ingratitude ntade his soul long to break from its confinement, which it finally did on Ascension Day, in the year ]506, a litting day for the death of the second liberator. It is worthy of note that his two greatest calumniators, wbo sought financial gin in his downfall, Boaha- dilla and Roldan, both found watery graves before the realization of their ill-gotten riches. In conclusion, then the life. charac- ter and work of Columbus gives rea- son for every American in general and every Knight of Columbus in partic- ular to be proud of and grateful to that most intrepid of navigators who discovered and left to the world so rich a legacy. TO DEPICT LANDING OF THE GREAT COLUMBUS. Moving Pictures to Portray Discovery of America by the Great Catholic DiscovererChicago Knights in Charge. The first voyage of Columbus to the New World, the setting out from the Court of Spain, the principal incidents of the memorable trip, together with the picturesque landing of the great navigator in the New World will be presented to millions of people in moving piceures. The latest accom- plishment in the work begun in Chi- cago some years ago was perfected when the Knights of Columbus of Chicago succeeded in having the pic- tures of the World's Fair carnivals taken by a ntoviug picture company, incurring an approximate cost of $5o,- OOO. A half ntillion persons will view the great pageant which is being prepared for Columbus Day, October I2. The original caravels, the exact counter- part of the vessels that carried Co- lumhus to the New World on his first voyage, will be used in the pageant. The great care taken to preserve the caravels in keeping with the resem- hlance of the vessels used by the great navigator makes the pageant a mat- ter of great historical worth, and will help preserve the memory of the dis- coverer and keep alive in the minds of the youth of tiffs country the real beginning of our history. The latest accomplishment in the preservation of records of the mem- orable voyage in picture was accom- plished when a moving picture com- pany secured pictures of the three original caravels, the entire crew of seamen, together with the "great dis- coverer," and will preserve the rec- ords for presentation to millions of persons in Chicago and elsewhere. The work has cost many years of pa- tient labor on the part of persons in- terestted in the movement in the pres- ervation of the caravels brought to Chicago at the time of the World's Fair, and the latest cost; anm.unting to more than $5o,ooo, has been in- curred by the moving picture com- pany through tlte efforts of the Chi- cago chapter of the Knights of Co- lumbus, that the history of the great- est event in American history might not be lost and that the American school children may be hetter ac- quainted with the real beginning of the history of their country. The latest work in the compaign to perpetuate the memory of the great discoverer and to preserve the rec- brds of tlte memorable voyage can- not be overestimated. With a cost of $5o,ooo the enUre picture of the v6y- age, the picturesque costumes of the times, the near representation of the THE 702 Main St. I &ge FtTe i great discovered has been accom- lllishcd The Cohunbts Day l)ageant will be enacted nn(ler the direction of tile Chieagt, chal)tcr of the Knights of Co- hmll)us John lhlrns, chairman, and l'. J. Ilalley of the entertainment coxnmittee of the Chicago chapter, will have charge of the affair. Tlaomas A. O'Shaughnessy, the artist. who several years ago discovered the three ca,'avels in tlle h,rhor of the Cahtment River, and twice, through his persistent efforts, saved the his- toric ships f,'om the "junk pile," has planucd tile educational pageant and will have charge of the artistic fea- tures. The voyage, as planned, will begin iu the harbor at South Chicago and pass akmg the lake front for twelve miles. The landing will take place ill Lincoln Park, therehy giving thou- sands of persons in Chicago the oo- portnnity of viewing the pageaut. ,hen the pageant was staged last year on Columhus Day the spectacle was witnessed hy more than one httn- dred thousand school children. Tile work of preserving the caravels as an educational project was begun hy Thomas A. O'Shaughnessy, who was visiting the Caluntent region, dis- covered the three caravels unprotected in the harl)or. He brought the matter before the other artists of Chicago, the Board of Education, and, finally, hefore the South Park Conunission- ers. Once the historic ships were ad- vertised for sale, and again they es- caped the "junk pile" only through the efforts of the artist and the late t'. Shelly O'Ryan and Mrs. P. J. T. O'Keefe of the Chicago School Board. Now that the history of the voyage may be preserved and the event kept fresh iu tile minds of the children of this country, the story will he pre- served and the motion piceurse shown all over the nation. IMPROVEMENTS ,T OKLOHAMA CITY. Rev. B. Mutsaers, D. D., the rector of St. Joseph's Cathedral, who re- turned only a short time ago from a trip to Europe, is maugurating some substantial improventents in the par- ish. The first will he the erection of a new and connnodius parochial resi- dence on the site of the old house on West Fourth street, which has done service as a priests' residence for ntany years. This will be removed to the school grounds in the rear of tile handsome two-story brick school house of the Sisters of Mercy. The new parochial residence will contain twelve rooms, well ventilated and heated and furnished with all other modern conveniences. The interior of the Cathdral, too, as well as the cross upon its lofty spire, has been supplied with new electric lights of the Tungsten pattern, which are another much-needed and greatly apl)reciated improvement.-- Southern Messenger. LIGHTNING STRUCK SCHOOL. Strikes St. John's Catholic Institution in Kansas City, Kan. Lightning struck the St. John's Catholic school in Kansas City, Kan., one day last week, throwing ]o chil- dren into a panic. The belfry was shattered and the havy bell fell to the ground, striking within ten feet of a group of children who had just left the building. Blinded by tlte flash and frightened hy the trembling of the huilding, the children rushed for doors attd win- dows. None were seriously hurt. BAD COMPANY. Boys are not the only mortals that had contpany ruins. No person can witbstand or resist the evil influence of bad companionship. Parental in- fluence cannot check it. No virtue is so strong, no intelligence or educa- tion so superior or enlightened as not to fall a victim to the baneful influ- ence of evil companionship. The proverb says "Tell mc With whom you associate and I will tell you who you are; or, again, "Companionship is among likes or many likes." This being so, therefore should the greatest vigilance be exerted in this respect. St. Augustine says "Bad company is like a nail driven into a post, which, after the first or second blow may be drawn out without diffi- culty, but deing driven up to the head, tile pinchers cannot take hold to draw it out, but which can only be done by the destruction of the wood."
