A wise man always keeps a little in the bank A WEALTH IN TRAINING I [] [] While the plan of putting aside a dollar each week [] will not of itself make you a man of wealth, it is never- tlieless true that there is no better training for the young man or woman just forming life habits. If carried on for several years," this plan of banking a part of the earnings becomes an excellent habit, for it means you have mastered your expenses and expendi- tures and are living on less than you earn.

It is l)ossible that withiu tile next tell years tile owners of farm lands of tile South. in addition to tile annual profit to be nlade I)y the cultivation of these lauds.will make $5,6oo,ooo,ooo, by the xncrease in their vMue, bring- ing tile value up to nearly $1 l,ooo,ooo,- pop. These stupendous figures illus- trate the possibilities that may come to the owners of Southern farm lands. Not every land owner will share equally. Some will make more and some will make less, but it is fair to say that ten years hence the agricul- tural lands of tile L;outh will have in- creased on the whole to such an ex- tent that they will be worth front $5,- pop,pop,pop to $6,ooo,ooo,ooo more than they are worth today. This unearned inc,'enlent, as it may be called, will adtt enorntously to the wealth of the South. Between 19oo and 191o the average value per acre of tile agricultural lands of tile United States increased from $5.64 to $32.84. During tile same period the average acre value of the South's agricultural lands increased from $7.88 to $5.84, making the av- erage acre value of the agricultural lands of tlle South something more than theacre value of the lauds of the United States ten years ago. It is safe to estimate that within the next tell years Southern lands will advance to at least tile average acreage value of the agricultral lands of tile United States ;,t present, bringing tile acre value to $32.48, as conlpared with $5.84, the average last year. As the South has at present about 34o,ooo,ooo acres of lands iu farms, an additional value of $I6.64 in ten years, I)inging tile average Ul) to the l)resent average of tile United States, would make a total of $5,657,6oo,ooo as the gain for the ten years. When once weahh begins to accu- mulate in a comnaunity rich in natural resources the nxomentunl increases with tremendous power. Tile increas- ing wealth of the South is now pro- ceeding at a rate that will make the molnentunl of the netx ten years carry its growth far beyond anything that this section has 3'et had.Manufac- turer's Record. PROGRESS IN OUR MATERIAL RESOURCES. "Statistical Record of the Progress of the United States" is tile title of a stnall document just issued by the Bureau of Statistics, Department of Commerce and Lahor. It pictures in statistical form conditions in the com- mercial, financial, idustrial and trans- portation systents of the United States at brief intervals since the year 18oo down to and including th eyear ]9II. In those cases in which the subjects considered are measureby govern- mental fiscal year periods the figures for the fiscal year 19I are included; in those in which calendar year pe- riods are used, of course, statements can only terminate with the calendar year I91O. Among the interesting facts shown are that the area of continental United States was 843,255 square miles in 8oo,advancing to L734,63o square miles in i8m; to a,99',536 square miles in t85o, and to 3,026,789 square miles in I853, since which date no change in area is shown. The population, which was fine and one-third millons in 18oo, was ninety-three and a quarter mil- lions in ]9:tI. Puhlic deht, which was eighty-three millon dollars in ..8oo, reached two thousand six hundred and seventy-five million dollars, less cash in the treasury, in ]865, the figures of 9I being one thousand and fifteen million dollars. The per capita debt, which was $5.63 in I8OO, and in I865 $76.98, is in 1911 $I0.8 3, The interest charge per capita, which amounted to 64 cents in 8oo and'$4.2 in 1866, was in 9ti 23 cents, and the total annual interest charge, which was in t866 one hundred and forty-six million dol- lars was in 19II twenty-one and one- third million dollars. Money in cir- culation, stated and twenty-six and a ntillion dollars in 8oo, was in 19t $3,228,627,oo2, and the iJercapita cir- culation, which was in 8oo $4,99, was in t9 $34.35. Deposits in all banks in the country eannot be shown earlier than in x875, at which dat they are set down as a little over two billion dollars, and in 19IO over gfteen billion dollars. Tile number of depositors in savings banks in t82o, the earliest year for which the figures can be shown, was a little less than nine thousand, and in t9m over nine million. Gov- ernme mrecetpts, which amounted to $2.o4 per capita in I8OC, wede in 1866 $14.65 and in 19I] $7.45, or about one- half what they were in t866. Exports of domestic merchaudise, which amounted to thirty-two million dol- lars in value in t8oo, were over two billion dollars in t9xL and imports, which amounted o uinety-one million dollars in x8oo, wer, one and one-half billion in 9xL Copies of the publication "in qua.s- non can be obtained by applying to the Bureau of Statistics, Department of Commerce and labor. WITHOUT GOD. England Reaping the Reword of God- less Education. l,'ather t]ernard Vaughan, preach- ing receutly in Inverness Scotland) gave a dark picture of the l)resent condition in Englaud, says tile New- ark Monitor. A quarter of a century ago or more. he said. they were sow- ing Godless educatiou, and today they were reaping the result of their la- 1)ors. We have been trying, lie con- tinued, to run an Empire without God and we cannot run it child iu a nurs- ery without God. The sin today is apostasy from God, and if they re- jected the lawgover they were snap- l)ing their lingers at the law, attd when they ignored the teacher they would despise the teaching. We call ourselves a Christion nation without Christ; we have taken Christ by the scruff of the neck and thrown t-lira out of the school, where He ought to be head master. Do you think I attt exaggerating? 1 am grieved to say 1 cannot exaggerate. Conlulon au- thority is gone. Where in England is authority in religion? Where in Eng- land is autharity in political life? Where ts authority in the industrial ranks? "Truth to tell, when God is not Riven His right place everybody else is in his wrong place. Aud con- sequently it is that we as a nation have got out of hand. We cannot control it. The Church of England cannot control, tile Nonconfornlists cannot control, political leaders can- not control, strike leaders cannot con- trol. There is no respect for au- thority because there is apostasy fronl God. from wllom all authority comes A quarter of a century ago, he said publicly at Mvnchester that things would come to this. There was no guarantee that England might not be- come a democracy with the King as President He appealed to them to teach character. They could not have character without God; they could not have character without sprite ideal and some ann in life--some original whose features they must copy. Men had shifted their center of gravity; they were being taught today without ideals, without aims, without ambi- tions. The man who thus describes Eng- land as it is today is a thorough Eng- lishman and therefore not likely to speak with prejudice. He 15roclaims the truth, even though it tells against his own country. FEASTS OF THE MONTH. St. Theodore, Martyr. October 2a--About the year 36t Ju- lian, uncle to the Emperor of that name, and, like his nephew, an apos- tate, was made Cotmt of the East. He closed the Christian Churches at An- tioch, and When St. Theodore as- sembled the Christians in private he was summoned before the tribunal of the Comlt and most inhunxauly tortur- ed. His arnts and feet were fastened hy ropes to pulleys and stretched until his pody appeared nearly enght feet long and the blood streamed from his sides. "Oh, most wretched man," he said to his judge, "you know well that at the day of judgment the cru- cified God Whom you blasphente will send you and the tyrant whom you serve to hell." Julian trembled at this awful prophecy, but he had the saint dispatched quickly by the sword, and iu a little while the judge himself was arraigned before the judgment seat of God. Those who do not go down to hell in spirit are very likely to go there in reality. Take car eto meditate upon the four last things and to live in holy fear. You will learn to love God bet- ter hy thinking how He punishes those who do not love him. St. Magloire, Bishop. October 248t. Magloire was born in Brittany towards the end of the Fifth Century. When he and his cousin, St. Sampson, came of an age to choose their way in life Sampson retired into a monastery in the prac- tice of virtue. Amon, Sampson's father ,having lleen cured by prayer of a dangerous disease, left the world and with his entire family consec,'ated himself to God, Magloire was so af- fected at this that, with his father, mother and two brothers, he resolved to fly the world, and they gave all their goods to tile poor and the Church.. Magloire and his father at- tached themselves to Sampson attd obtained his permission to take the monastic habit in the house ,over which he presided. When Sampson was consecrated Bishop Magloire ac Oole and in the episcopal character. After three years he resigned his bishopric, being 70 years old, and re- tired into a desert on the continent. vnd some time after into the Isle of Jersey, where he founded and govern- ed a monastery of sitxy monks. He died about the 3'cal 575. "lie mindful of them that have rule over you, who have spoken to you the word of God, whose faith follow, con- sidering the end." Saintts Srispin and Chrispinian. October a5--These two glorious martyrs came from Rome to preach the faith in Gaul toward the middle of the Third Century. Fixing their res- idence at Soissons, they instructed naany in the faith of Christ, which they preached puhlicly in the day, and at night they worked at making shoes, though they are said to have been nobly born and brothers. The infidels listened to their iustrnctious and were astonished at tile example of their lives, especially of their charity, dis- interestedness, heavenyl piety and contempt of glory and all earthly things, and the effect was the conver- sion of many to the Christian faith. Tile brothers had continued their em- ploynlent several years when a coin- plaint was lodged against tltem. The Elnl)eror, to gratify their accusers and give way to his savage cruelty, gave orders that they shouhl l)e brought before Rictius Varus. the most im- placable enemy of the Christians. The martyrs were patient aud constant under the nlost cruel tormeuts and finished their course by the sword about the year 287.St. Anthon's monthly. ITALIAN-TURKO Vv'AR AND THE PAPACY. War Follows Peace as me Night the Day--Italian War Affects Whole World, It Being the Home of the Pope. Writing for the True Voice, Wil- liam F. Markoe contributcd the fol- lowing splendid article on the Italian- Turco war find the P-tpacy, which ap- peared in last week's issue of that paper: "Apparently the forebodings of the Neapolitans because the blood of their St. J anuarius did uot liquify as' usual this year on September t9 were not without foundation. Just ten clays later war was declared between Italy and the "nnspeakable" Turk. "Nothing could illustrate lnore strikingly the fact that all Europe as well as ltaly is seated on a wflcano. As night follows day, so war follows peace, and whenever the atmosphere becomes charged with the talk of "peace pacts" look out for war. Nor could anything illustrate more strik- ingly the rope of sand that binds Christendom together and the head- less condition of the body politic in Europe. Without asking leave of anyhody Germany takes Agadir; then Italy wants Tripoli and proceeds to help herself, so that we have the un- wonted spectacle of Turkey pleading with Christian powers for peace and asking their protection from robbers and the Christian powers turning a deaf ear. It used to be just the other way until our own Decatur and his American bluejackets sailed to Tripoli and swept the seas of Mohammedan corsairs and pirates. Now Italy de- mands a "protectorate" over Tripoli, and the mere demand and the hollow- hess of th.e pretext is shown in the fact that foreigners all flee from Trip- oil in hot haste at the mere aunounce- ment of the demand. To whip Tripo!i at sea and to whip her on land are two entirely different propositions, and the world seems by no means sure that Italy can do it. Italy has not distinguished herself recently as a great military power. No one has forgotten how she attacked old Men- elik, the "Abyssintan Lion," and was routed, bag and baggage, leaving thousands of her sons prisoners or dead on the liehl of battle. It seemed like the irony of fate when it was learned that the weapons used by Menelik were none other than the muskets of the Papal Zouaves, laid down at teh command of the Pope when the breach was made in Porta pia of Rome, since changed to breech- loaders, but still bearing the Papal coat of arms. Can it be possihle that the Turks have been selected by the hand of Providence to teach Italy another lesson? "An Italian war means much to the I whole world, for Italy is the seat of the Papacy, and the Pope counts his spiritual subjects in every nation on companied him in his apostolical la- the face of the globe. The Papacy is Armorica or Brittany, aud at his death the only truely international power in he succeeded him in the Abbey of]the world, and recently the Pope had been complaining bitterly of his lack of freedom and independence. "If tiffs be the case in tinxe of peace, what might it lie in time of war? Al- ready the cable is beginning to bring reports of what the L'ope "thinks" and "feels," as if he were an Italian sub- ject and taking sides in the quarrel between his spirittml children in ltaly and his spiritual children in Tripoli. Italy has, indeed, "guaranteed" the complete independence of the Pope, who is supposed to control his own telegraph and postal service, but has the outside world entire confidence in the Italian law of guarantees? If ally oue of the American States were to seize the District of Columbia and confine the President in the Capital at Washington, would all the other States feel the same degre of confi- dence in the administration as though it were entirely independent as nov? The g,'eat ltalian exposition that wad intended to comnlenmrate the relegat- ing of the Papacy to the confines of the Vatican has fallen flat, and the great peace congress to have been held in Rome last month has been followed by the declaration of war against a neightmring State. Noth- ing conld have happened to bring the ohl "Ronmn question" more promi- nently to the front and to enphasize the necessity of settling that before uuiversal peace can be permanently secured in Europe or the rest of the world. ]t is said that 'whom the gods wish to destroy they first make mad.' It would surely be another ease of 'poettc justice' if the war between Italy and Turkey should lead to the restoration of the Holy See to a po- sition of real independence amovg the nations, guaranteed, not only by oue, but by all the great powers of Chris- tendom." FIRST HOLY NAME SOCIETY In the United States Established in the Diocese of Louisville in the Year r8og. Members of the Holy Name so- cieties will be interested to know that the tirst Holy Nante Society in this country was established al St. Charles Church, Marion county, Keutucky, by Father Nerinckx. The record, in his own handwriting, preserved at Loret- to, shows that he estahlished the so- ciety on the fourth Sunday of Lent in t8o9, and that he kept it up for ten yearstill 189. The long list of nantes so familiar as fanfily names in Kentucky is very interesting. It should awaken the zeal of the Holy Name societies of today to know that Father Nerinckx found the so- I to be on the lookout.--The Wichita Advance. ciety an effectivc means of promoting piety and religion. The fact that he established the society in Kentucky is of more historic interest, especially to Kentuckians. It is a reminder of what we owe to his apostolic zeal and heroic ntissionary labors that should arouse gratitude which can best be manifested by faithfully prac- ticing the lesosns I/e taught the so- ciety in his day,The Record. THE GUARDIAN ANGEL. October is the month, not only of the Holy Rosary, but also of the Guardian Angels. We are surround- ed by invisible enemies, against whom our strength would be of no avail. We are blind and too self-confident amidst ninny dangers. We arc easily deceived and easily overcome. God, beholding the infirntity of his fallen human creatures, appointed to each one of us a guardian spirit, who should protect, guide, direct and gov- erit us in all our ways and be faithful unto death. Such are our guardian angels. They are princes of the heav- enly court, yet their duty, as well as their delight, is to be near us. When we sleep they are watching; when .we are awake they are at hand to re- prove, counsel and assist in whatever way we may need thent. They love us with the tenderness with which God has endowed them. qhey will never leave us until we are judged, and they will be our advocates if we have not been too unworthy of them. Can we be ungrateful for such fidel- ity? We need never be lonely with snch companions and we will never perish if we be guided by their whis- pered promptings, which are the dic- tates of our consciences.--St. Antho- ny's Monthly. METHODISTS WARNED. The New York Sun had a special dispatch this week informing us that the Pope has just received a shipment of new arms for his "soldiers."
