The Burning Bush. One day, while Moses was watch- ing his sheep, God appeared to him in a burning bush. Moses' was sur- prised to see that the bush did not burn up, and went nearer to look at it. God commanded him to stand still and to take off his shoes, as the place was holy. At the voice of God, Moses fell on his face. Then God told him that he was chosen to free the Hebrews, and for this he must go before the king; but, as he was slow of speech, his brother Aaron should be spokesman. The Plagues of Egypt. Moses and Aaron went to the Egyp- tian king ahd told him that God had ordered him to free the Hebrews. The king not only refused to do this, but even gave the people harder work than before. Moses and Aaron went again to the king, wlm refused a sec- ond time to do as he was told. For not obeying, God sent ten plagues on him and his people. At first the water of the rivers was changed to blood; then frogs covered the whole country; after that the dust of the earth turned into small insects which troubled both men and beasts; next came a plague of flies which filled all the houses; and then a disease which carried off the cat- tle. The sixth plague was boils on men and animals; the seventh, a hail- storm which destroyed the grain and fruits; and last of all, a lreadful darkness for three long days. Before sending the tenth and most terrible plague, God ordered each He- brew family to sacrifice a lamb on the fourteenth day of the month, and to sprinkle the door-posts of each house with its blood; then to roast the lamb and'eat its flesh with un- leavened bread--all of which was done.  The night God's angel visited the houses that were not marked with prisone;.,!.! woflld write and thank the blood of tlm lamb, and there was He exhodr.C. F.

Then the king'sent for Moses and Aaron and bid them go out of Egypt as fast as they could, before any more of the Egyptians would die. The Passage of the Red Sea. Rfoses started at o,ce with all his people, but they haft not gone many days when the king was sorry that he let them go, and, taking his army, went in pursuit of them. When the Hebrews, who were on the shores of the Red Sea, saw the army coming, they thought them- selves lost, as there seemed no way to escape. But Moses bid them fear not, and stretching forth his rod over. the sea, as God commanded him, ,the waters divided, rising' like a wall to the right and left, leaving a dry pass- age through which the people crosed over to the other side. The Egyptians followed, but when Moses again stretched his rod over the sea, the waters rolled back to their place and the king with his whole army was drowned. This passage through the Red Sea is a figure of Holy Baptism, by which we are freed from the slavery of sin.

Wevill adore Him whatever He does for He is God and we are His," That while this battle raged in heaven all the beauty of Lucifer and his followers was changed into ugli- ness; That they were hurled out of" Heaven into seething flames created Y* s' F.light. as forty years did tO help his ounh'y. !Uffering many hard- [eased the king, who o be put to death; tgYPt to Madian, in became: a shepherd. d i'  STOR' y their sin ; dgegS .

Up among the marble mountains of Carara there are beautiful glens where many a little village clings to the side of the hills or nestles in the valley below. Lower down in these glens are fruitful vineyards and olive woods, while higher up the chestnuts and pine trees grow, with little patches of cornfields between. But high and low there are always flowers springing up to make the world beautiful with their colors of purple, white, and gold. It was in one of these little villages among the hills, nine miles north of the city of Lucca, that one of the fairest flowers in God's Garden blos- somed long years ago. She was only a poor little peasant baby, born in a humble home, and she never became rich or grand or pbwerful. But the story of her life, has still the sweet perfume of those hidden flowers which never fade. It was to a very poor home that little Zita came, poor at least as the world counts poverty. Her father and mother worked hard, but even then there was not always enough to eat; and in winter time Zita was often cold and hungry. But there are Other things that count more than gold, and the little home was rich in goodness and kindness and honesty. There was not a better man in all the country- side than the father, Giovanni Lore- bardo, and the mother, who was called Buonissima (which in Italian means very good), early taught her little daughter all that was good and true. The child was easily trained, for she was so sweet-tempered 'and obe- dient and thouglitful for others. She was quick and merry, too, and very helpful in the house. It was only when she knelt in church that she grew quiet, and dreamy. She loved to think of the Gesu Bambino who was born in just such a poor little place as theirs, and of the years He walked on earth. She pictured Him going from one little village to an- other helping all the poor people she knew, and then on lethe great city below which rich and powerful peo- ple lived, who still needed His help. The charm of that life seemed to fill her whole heart. The little mountain maidens very quickly leave their childhood behind and learn to be helpful women, and Zita was 0nly twelve years old when she began to think it was time she should try to earn her own living. Her father worked so hard and her mother too. She could not bear tb think that she was doing nothing, and she prayed that the good God would send her some work to do. "Little daughter," said her mother that very day, "thy father and I have found a lblace for thee with a noble family at Lucca. .I know thou wilt do thy best to be a good servant, for in serving thy master thou wilt be serving God." "I aM ready to start at once," said Zita cheerfully, "and I will do my very best." There were not many :preparations to make, and the little maid 'soon set out with her father to Walk the. nine miles that lay between them and t!e city of Lucca, where her work was waiting for her. It was to the Casa Fantenelli that they Were bound, and Zita thought herself .most fortunate to be engaged to serve such a noble family. But it must have been very hard for the little maid, in spite of the twelve years which made her feel so grown- up and womanly, to keep back the tears as she said g0od-by to her father. It felt so lonely to be left standing at the door of the Casa, in a strange town, among strange peo- ple. But Zita seldom wasted much time thinking Of herself. She was always looldng for the work that vas waiting to be done next, and had no thought to spare beyond the desire to dc Lhat well. SO, although there was perhaps a mist of tears over her dark eyes as she watched her father turn and go down the street, sloe did not watch for long, but passed through the great door ,anxious to begin work at once. he was but a child when she entered that service, but she never left it again, and served the family well and faithfully until her death. Never had there been a more hard-working Iittle maid. No one knew how early she got Up, and how much work she got through before the sun began to rise. There was only one favor she asked, and hat was to be allowed to go to the early service at the church close by. And as she always came quick}y home and Worked twice as well when it was ver, she was allowed to go each morning as she wished. All the family grew fond of the cheerful, busy little maidwho served them so faithfully, and as the years wentby, everything was left in her '_ --" hands, for they knew she could be trusted. There was no waste in the kitchen now, for Zita had always a thought for the poor, and nothing was thrown away that could with care be used for them. Even her leisure time she spent in helping others, and many a sick and lonely person was cheered and fed by the little maid, who often went hungry herself that she might share her food with them. It was indeed seldom that Zita neglected or forgot a duty, but one morning a strange thing happened. It was the day when the bread was to be baked, and the loaves should have been ready before Zita started for church. She could not think af- terwards how she had forgotten, and it was only when she rose from her knees after the service that she sud- denly remembered that she had left her work undone. In great distress she hurled home, and was quite breathless with running when she entered the kitchen. But as she looked towards the table she stood quite still and her eyes grew round with wonder. There law a row of loaves, all evenly shaped and ready to be baked, with a white clOth laid over them to keep them from the dust. Could it possibly be her mistress who had come down and done her work? But no, no one was stirring in the house, every one was fast asleep. (Continued next week.) BISHOPS BANISHED AND THEIR GOODS SEIZED BI  CZECHS (By N. C. W. C. News Service.) Budapest, Oct. 5.The methods of the anti-Catholic section of the Czech s in dealing with Catholie Bishop is very.well typified by the sort of treat- ment given to Mgr. Batthyany, Bish- op 0f Nyitra, who together with Bish- op Ra.dnai, was exiled from his See by the Czech authorities, and forced to reside in Budapest. | While Bishop Batthyany was under the displeasure of the authorities, but still remained at the episcopal palace, on him one morning ] there called I Czech army officer, who told the Bish- ] op that his own house in the city was I not ver. well furnished, and would the Bishop voluntarily place at his disposal some furniture, carpets and other household gear from the epis- copal palace. 2he Bishop did not welcome the proposal, and said as much, adding that he had already had experience of these voluntary lendings, which, he said, amounted to involuntary appro- priations. The officer took the refusal badly, and withdrew, muttering threat's against the'Bishops. Shortlyafterwards he returned, ac- companied by a squa4 of troops. Act- ing on the word of command the troops smashed in the doors with hatchets, and after having made their way into the Bishop's palace, seized what ever goods they thought desir, able, and the officer took a consider- able share of the plunder. Sho:fly after this the Bishop 'was told by the authorities to depart from his See; his housewas taken over and orders issued that no one in the dio- cese was to offer shelter to him. In the circumstances the Bishop was obliged to depart, and he is still I for- bidden to return to his diocese. AUGUSTA ROTARY CLUB DENOUNCES CONVENT INVASION (By N. C. W. C. News Service.) Augusta, Ga., Oct. 2.The &u- gusts Rotary Club has adopted res- olutions 'condemning the inhuman act of a ruffian who recently assaulted a Sister of Mercy at St. Mary's' Con- vent. The resolution, which was of- fered by Rufus H. Brown and secofld- ed from all parts of the floor, was adopted unanimously as follows: "Whe?eas, the perpetrator of this act has been able, thus far, to elude the police authorities and is still at large, waiting, no doubt, for another oppoi'tunJty to attempt a similar of- fence against an innocent and unpro- tected woman; be it therefore "Resolved, That the Rotary Club of Augusta, in meeting assembled, here: by expresses its unqualitied condem- nation of this inhuman act and calls upon the constituted authorities of] this city to redouble their' efforts to] apprehend and bring .to justice this] enemy of womanhood." " i t i COmmunicatiOns [ (Continued From Page 5) of the morning service and declared that he was never more impressed receiving communion. He also spoke than by the sight of all these laymen of the address of the preceding day and admitted that he never thought such strong sentiment could be couch- ed in what he always supposed to be an inflexible language. One of the group asked for a special medal. When the attendant ho wont to seek it returned empty handed, the Holy Father started off himself with his little jogging step to fetch it. Noth- ing so eloquently showed the simpli- city of the man as this action on the part of the representative of the Lord who wished to satisfy the longing of amother to bring back from him a souvenir to her child. Archbishop Cerett{. The time in Romewas all too short to enable the Knights to take in the points of interest, but with the  assi- duity they paid the task, the import- ant places were not neglected. A splendid testimonial was tenedered Archbishop Ceretti at a banquet in the Grand Hotel where he expressed the gratitude, of the Holy Father and by suggestion outlined what the pol- icy of the Order might be. Monsig- nor Kelly made a great hit by telling the Knights truthfully what he thought about them and their activ- ities. It was refreshing to hear words of praise f:om one, who is in cl6se touch with the work of the organiza- tion. Trip to Genoa. From Rome the Knights went to Genoa to place a wreath on the statue of Columbia. The writer, was not along so can give no further details of their movements. Renewing old acquaintances in Florence, Milan and Venice he spent the intervening days till the company came again together in Paris. The papers in America have been filled, no doubt, Kvith the strike agitations over here. In Florence the chief of police was buried on the day we arrived, killed, it was said, by so- cialistic or bolshevic rioters. It was strange, then, to see all the social- istic societies in the funeral cortege. It was t01d us that they came out'to manifest their disagreement with vio- lent methods of reform. In Milan the workmen were about to take over the factories. There is discontent, possi- bly, but speaking with one who has lived in Italy for nearly forty years, he assured us that there was no more bolshevistie sentiment rife here than one might find, say, in Denver, his na- tive city. Venice has the same old lure and it is so crowded With Ameri- cans that hotel accommodations are at a premium. Good Results. As  clergymen one might sum up the impressions of this vsit of the Knights to Europe in one way, but as an American citizen fit might be bet- ter to say that nothing but good h.s resulted from this touching of el6ows with residents over here. The French have surely been convinced that our country, as represented by these men, is in absolutely friendly accord and the American visitors cannot have other feeling than deepest gratitude for the cordiality manifested by the JUST PUBLISHED TRENrS ' DAUGHTER k A NEW NOVEL By Isabel C.
