THE SOUTHERN GUARDIA_N Pap A wise man always keeps a little in the bank A WEALTH IN TRAINING [] [] While the plan of putting aside a dollar each week will not of itself make you a man of wealth, it is never- theless 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. We would not urge you to start an account with this bank were we not positive that the advantages of such an [] account are greatly in your favor. i UNION TRUST CO. 2OlW. Second st.

Many ont of the household of tire faith realize the beauty and superi- ority of the religious education im- parted hy our good religion and are free and outspeken in regard to the expression of their admiration for convent-bred girls. Unfortunately here are but too many Catholics who w;'l insist nl)ou sendig their daugh- ters to schools either under the aus- pices of the State, where nothing is learned about God and His holy re- ligion, or to schools under the con- trol of the sects, where Protestant text books are used and where the l)redominating spirit is unmistakably non-Catholc, or rather, anti-Catho]!c, although these schools are called un- sectarian. It is difticult to convince such ill-informed Catholics tltat they are doing a great and incalculable in- jury to the souls of their girls by ex- posing them to tlm ahnost certain danger of having their souls tltor- oughly penetrated with the spirit o[ indifference m matters of religion. ,hile arguments seem to be wasted on such Catholics. we would repro- duce for their consideration and earnest meditation tlte following coml)liment paid to the convent-bred girl by the Chicago htter-Ocean, a purly secular paper: "Despite the novelties of co-educa- tion and the attractions of public in- stitmions of learning, convent educa- tion still has'a charm and power which all are free to admit. Thor- ough. instruction in religious truth, correct moral teaching and a high sense of duty are known to be fully in accord with the most profound knowledge and the widest stange of truth in every field of study. Hence the convent-bred girl can have every intellectual advantage afforded by a secular college, and in addition mor- al, artistic and social associations of a superior order. It is not surpris- ing, therefore, that men and women of every shade of belief very consid- erately have chosen for their daugh- ters a convent education. "In our country pioneer conditions have passed away, and with them the educational limitations they imposed. Privation and narrowness in the edu- cation of many were not of choice, and the absence of culture was un- avoidable. The future points to wider and more varied obligations, wbich demand higher education for all. Op- portunities for learning and culture are now open to young ladies whose mothers knew such blessings only as a dream. )n the field of science and letters convent instruction is not ex- celled. In the realm of art and music convent training stands pre-eminent, while in the for(nation of character its standard of true womanhood is the loftiest conception the world has ever known." We hope that from Catholics at least we will not hear of any more slurs on convent training in view of the above strong and unequivocal ex- pressions from a non-Catholic source of the beauty and superiority of the culture received in the walls of our religious institutions of .learning for yiung girls.--T. A. B., in Southern Messengre. FATHER SHERMAN IS IMPROVING. Catholics all over the country will rejoice to learn that Rev. Thomas E. Sherman, S. J., the brilliant and zeal- ous son of the late General Sherman who was taken ill recently at San Jose Cal., is expected to make a prompt re- covery. Dr. E. W. Mullen of the staff of the Agnew State Hospital, where the priest is under treatment, declares the patient had no ailment which can- not be cured by an interval of com- plete rest. The Sacred Heart Review calls at- tention to a curious error into which the Boston Evening Transcript has fallen in commenting on Father Sher- man's illness. In its isgue of Septem- ber 2.I the Evening Transcript gives a brief sketch of the career of the noted Jesuit and says: "He was brought into wide publicity in z9o6, when he launched a movement to lead an army of United States troops over *the same route his father followed on his march to the sea. The plan was strongly opposed in the South." "This is grotesquely and mischiev- ously false," says our Catholic con- temporary. Father Sherman 'launch- ed' no movement of the kind. There was no movement of the kind 'launch- ed' by anybody. Not an American army, but a detail of army officers, in the course of their duty and students of the military conditions and prob- lems, proposed, together with other MECHANICS LUMBER COMPANYI field work, to follow the route of General Sherman on his march to the BERT C. SIMON, Manaller -t OLD PHONE A.0 I sea. Father Sherman, having been an -- army chaplain, was known to some of LUMBER, MILL WORK, PAINTS and GLASS these officers, and was invited to ac- company them. The sensational press of the South got hold of it and im- mediaetly made an uproar. The trip was abandoned so far as Father Sher- man was concerned, but that is all there was to it." PRIESTS WHO HAVE PRAYED IN THE SENATE. The deliberations of the llousc of Rel)reseutatives and the United States Senate are always opened with prayer. In t839 the Rev. Charles Constautine l'ise, D. D., was chosen by the Senate to act as chaplain Before that date there is no record of any Catholic priest acting as chaplain of Congress, except when Bishop John ngland of Charleston preached in the hall of Representatives on Sunday, January 8, 1826. The Rev. Father I)ider, S. J., presideut of Georgetown College, opened the deliberations of the Senate on two occasions in 84o. The Rev. Father Aiken was the tirst priest to make the sign of the cross in the new hall, and a little later Bishol) John Ilughes of New York, by invitation of Stephen A. Douglas, John C. Calhoun and a nuntbcr of other equally dis- tinguished men, delivered a sermon in the House on December t2 , 847. Two years later the great apostle ot temperance, Father Mathew, made a visit to \\;Vashington, and both Itouses of Congress extended to ltim the priv- ileges of their respective floors, an honor seldom given to a resident of a foreign country. Father Mathew made his address in the hall of the house of Representatives, and on the following evening was the guest of honor at a banquet at the White House, not a drop of wine being served out of deference to the distin- guished advocate of temperance. Fatlter Stonestreet, in I859, opened the meeting of the Representatives with prayer, and an old hredord says: "Speaker err conducted the reverend gentleman to the platform, and, cloth- ed in Iris cassock and wearing his beads, Father Stonestreet made a large sign of the cross and read the prayers of Archbisltop Carroll for au- thorities." A DANGEROUS AGE. We are living in a dangerous age Papers, pamphlets, books and maga- zines help plant the germ of infidelity in the hearts of the rising generation Yea, the very air we breathe is con- taminated, and unless we are careful and use the necesary antidotes we run awful risks. The words of the brilliant K. K. Chesterton, who is not a Catholic, but who is as broad-mind- ed as he is learned, should be burned into the brain of every Catholic. He writes: "The ordinary agnostic has got Iris facts all wrong, lte is au un- believe,' for a multitude of reasens, hut they are untrue reasons, lie doubts because the Middle Ages were barbaric; but they weren't; because Darwinianism is demonstrated, but it isn't; becanse Christia, art was sad and pale, but it was picked out in peculiarly bright colors and gay with goh[: because luodern science is nlov- ing a way fronl the SUl)ernatural; I)ut it isn't: it s moving toward the su l)ernatural witlt tim ,apidity of a rail- way train UP-HILL BUSINESS. A well-known Franciscan friar tray- cling by railway lmppened to take his seat near a very l)igoted free thinler. Seeing the friar, he could not with- stand the temptalion of showing off his ignorance and l)ervertness. Tak- ing advantage of the stop at the sta- tion, he cMlcd to the friar, "\\;\'hat in the worhl's name do you Catholics have all that oiling performed on your heads, hands, feet. eyes, and ears? I don't need all that and I fare just as well." Teh blasl)hemous bigot was alluding to the ointment which holy Mother Clturclt prescribes in Bap- tism, extreme unction. "Ah," said the friar with a placid face and also in a loud voice, "this is quite natural for us Catholics, for me are going np hill and need all the hel l ) we ca get to push onwards, but you are going dowu hill and consequently need no puslting, for you get there soon euough." All the passengers broke forth in a merry laugh and the free thinker retreated in silence.--Contril)- utcd. MUST TAKE LONG REST. The Society for tim Propagation of the Faith, whose headquarters for the United States are located at 627 Lex- ington avenue, New York City, an- notmee that the Rt. Rev. Monsignor J. Freri, D. C.. L., president of rite society in this country, owing to ill- health, has been contpelled to take a long rest. The Rev. George J. lull- lard, S. T. L., vice preident of the society, has been requested and will act in the president's stead during his absence. HOW TO AVOID DIVORCE. My advice to husbands who wish to avoid divorce ts this: Don't quote moths. Call up your wife while at business and ask her ltow site is anti tell her that you called her up just to hear her voice. Bring her a box of candy; one of the new books that she is interested in; a flower, even if it is faded and you have picked it up off the street; a pretty pil oz" bandker- chief--and don't ever lay your heatt on your pillow at night withbnt bay- ing done something to gain and ob- tain a firmer hohl on your wife's love. Kiss her every day. At least once a monttvmeet her down town an(] take her to dinner and the theater. Don't ever stop cottrting, for as soon as you do some other man will begin. Make your wife your companion. Take hec out with you and when you have a big time take your wife along, and the divorce evil will be lcssencd.-- Lcslie's Weekly. SAID ,gOMETHING. On board an ocean liner were a lady nd a gentleman, accompauied by their young hopeful, aged 6, and. is usually the case, little Ville was the wellest thing on board. One day the parents were lying in their steamer chairs, hoping that they would die, and little %Villie was playing about the deck. Willie did something of wlfich his ntother did not approve, so she said to her ltusband, "John, please speak to Willie." The husband, with the little strength left in his wasted form, looked at his son and heir and feebly muttered, "Howdy do, Willie." AN EMBRYO. We do not credit the rumor that Professor Burbank has successfully grafted a watermelon vine with sprigs from a lenten tree. prodtteing a melon that when squeezed gives forth two quarts of fresh lemonade. We far this ntust go the way of that weird tale from the Southewest of a man who fed his pigs on dry bread, pro- ducing a quality of meat ,hat tasted like a railway ham sandwich, which on investigation proced to l)e a DaSe- less canard.
