St. Cle- ment of Rome (year 100) writes that Peter and Paul with a great numbel of Christians were martyred in Rome. The grave of St. Peter was foufid, and also his body, in a catacomb, under Nero's circus, where the present St. Peter's church stands. Was the Pope always acknowledged as the Primate of all the churches? Yes; in the year (100) when dis- sension arose in the church of Cor- inth, the matter was referred to Pope Clement. Pope Victor commanded the people of Asia to celebrate Easter according to the customs of Rome. Pope Stephen forbade the Bishops of Africa to rebaptize those who re- turned to the Church. In all general councils of the ChmYch, the Pope had the first place, etc. Does the Bible say that we shouhi submit our opinion to the Church? St. Paul says: "Obey your pre- lares, and be subject to them." (Heb. 13, 17.)

She always made a short act of adoration on bended knees after en- tering the pew. he knew that Jesus is always present on the altar during Mass and kept her eyes and thoughts on the tabernacle, the altar, and the priest. She knew that an altar to be prop- erly prepared for Mass must have three clothes on it, in honor of the Trinity. She knew that the amice which the priest wears is a reminder of the veiling of the face and eyes of Jesus by the Jews. When she saw the alb she was re- minded that Jesus was clothed in mocking in a white garment by Herod and his court and also that it is a symbol of the spotless innocence and purity with vhicb the Priest should appear at the Altar. The c!r,cure reminded her of the cor, l: with which Our Lord was bound and when she saw the maniple she recalled the fetters with which His hands were bound.

If we are to hear the Church and observe her teachings and not to condelnn her, and if Christ is with her forever, certainly we should submit our opinion to the Church. FROM THE BIBLE.

She went to confession and Holy Comnmnion regularly and let noth- ing hinder her froin keeping her reso- lution. She was always very clean and neat, and modestly dressed. She never left the church until the )riest had returned to the sacristy. She left the church as modestly as she entered it and never forgot that the church is the house of God. THE SAINT'MAID OF LUCCA. (Continued from last week.) Part III. "I had no right, even in my pity, to lend the cloak," she sobbed. "How can I face my master now?" And with a heavy heart she turned at last and went slowly home. Her face was white and she trem- bled with fear as she entered the house and stood silent before her mas- ter. He looked her over and his eyes grew stern. "Where is the cloak I lent thee?" he asked. "Did I not bid thee bring it back to me most carefully?" His voice was loud and angry, for he was in a terrible rage, seeing that the cloak was gone. His angry words thundered out, and Zita stood silently weeping before him with bowed head .... But who was this that stood at her side and touched her arm so gently? She looked up. Could it indeed be the beggar-man? It certainly was her master's cloak which he placed in her hands, but round the face that smiled so kindly down on her there was a wondrous light, which seemed to lighten all the. place. She tried to speak, but before the wordswould '.ome he was gone. "Who was the man?" the master isked in low, awed tones. "I thought at first it was the poor beggar-man, to whom I lent Shy cloak," said Zita, "for, see, he hath brought it safely back. But when I saw his face, I knew it was the An- gel of the Lord." The master was ashamed of the anger he had shown. How could he blame her now.? From that day his l words grew more gentle, and angry tones were seldom heard in the house. Indeed, it seemed as if all evil things, all unkind thoughts, and selfish deeds were banished at the presence of the faithful serving- maid. .w It was one day in summer when the heat was so great that there seemed no air to breathe, that, ,as went to draw water mountain and bid him tell the people to thin good obeyed the advice that, if they remained faithful to the Lord, He would continue to protect een hundred years] them, and would make them a chosen bo'  - lpeople.

"I only wish that it was wine," said Church of the South Zita, for she knew that it was not wise in the great heat to drink that water. But what could she do. She had nothing else to give him, and he was so thirsty. There was only one thing she could do to guard against the danger, and so she silently prayed the Lord that He would bless the water and not suffer it to hurt His poor servant. , The pilgrim smiled at her words. "I, to, wish that it was wine," he said, as he raised the Cup to his lips. Then he started and looked at the lowly servant-maid who had handed him the water. LOUISIANA. New Orleans. Last month Father Davis, S. J., celebrated the golden anniversary of his entrance into the Society of Jesus. He refused all public celebration or honors. The celebration consisted in his offering his Holy Sacrifice of the Mass as thanksgiving.

C., Oct. 17.--In the tentative apportionment of chaplains for the new United States Army, the War Departlnent has allowed Catho- lies a quota equal to 25 per cent of the whole number to be appointed.

Ford, Captain and Chap- lain of the United States Army, who was invited t preach a sermon at the Rock River Conference of the Metho- dist Episcopal Church last Sunday night, was heard with respect and at- tention, and subsequently complment- ed by many of the ministers. It was the first time in the eighty-one years of the "Conferenee's history that a Catholic priest addressed its mem- hers. Father Ford's sermon struck a pa- triotic as well as a religious note. He l did not fail to present the Church's I teachings on Christian citizenship. He is secretary of the new school for chaplains at Camp Grant.
