THE SOUTHERN GUARDIAN q, k,- I I Writing for tile Southern Mes- senger, Elenita Kirkl)atrick, who is a loyal subscriber to atttl reader of this pal)or, contrihutes tile following sl)lendid article : "\\;Vhere can 1 lind s(,ute literature exphtining the Catholic Church? .... l would like to read up on this and so. I)ut [ have no idea where to find the referoncc. ' Such conllnents as tile ahove, are heard ahnosl daily, by priest and lay- me,t. Tht: church rack is but an- other instance of the willingness on the part of the Cburch to furnish the faithful with spiritual help, when it is demanded. The church rack is a simple, ordin- ary, aud cheal) contrivance: as each person sees it for the th'st time, he woudcrs wily he had never thought of it befo,'c. The rack is placed in a eonveuicnt and prominent place at tile I)ack of the church It is filled with good books for sale. One has only to examine the boks, select what he wants, drop the price in the slot. and go abont his husiness re- joicing. The books placed in the rack are tnarked with the price iu )lain letters. The litcrature is of an inexpensive though very high order, including simple prayer books, cate- chisms, "The l:aith of Our Fathers," the Question Box. The Leader, Tile Christian l tome, "The Worth of tile Commonpace." Frequent Commdnion for young and old. Social Reform by Legislation, The Journal of My Life, by a nnn, etc., etc. The pampblets a,ld periodicals are, in tnany in- stances, new anti very interesting; the perusal of such literature will keel) tile readers ahreast of the times. Sense of the hooks .are deserving of more than passing mention, for in- stance: "A Simple Prayer-Book," puhlished by the Catholic Truth So- ciety, is sold in England for a penny, in America for five cents. It is neatly hound, does not hnlk in the pocket, has the Mass and the ()tiler prayers. Tbe hook-rack described above, is in St. Austin's Chapel, Austin, anti there is :t constant demandS for this kind of literature. Would it not he a good idea, in connection with the church rack. for persons who have Catholic papers, periodicals, or books which they have read and no longer need, to take them to the rack, where they would be accessihle to others who would read them? It is a well- known fact. that many persons who are fond of good Catholic literature are so situated that they cannot buy it, they are thus debarred from one of the greatest influences in the Churchthe Catholic press. PRESIDENT TAFT'S ANNUAL PROCLAMATION. In keeping with a time honored custom and believing tile reasons are many, President Taft has issued his annual Thanksgiving proclamation. The proclamation reads as follows: "The people of ttfis land having by long sanction and practice set apart toward the close of each passing year a day on which to cease front their labors and assemble for the purpose of giving praise to Him who is the author of the blessings they have en- joyed, it is my duty as Chief Execu- tive to designate at this time the day for the fulfillment of this devout pur- pose. "Our country has been signally fa- vored in many ways. The round of tbe season has brought rich harvests. Our industries have thriven far be- yond our domestic needs, the pro- ductions of our labor are daily find- ing enlarged ntarkets abroad. We have heen free from the curses of pestilencefi of fatnine and of war. Our National counsels have further- ed tbe cause of peace in other lands and the spirit of benevolence has 1)ronght ns into ch)ser toucb witb other peoples, to tile strengthening of the bonds of fellowship and good will that link us to the contrades in tile universal I)rotherhood of Natious. Stroug in tile sense of our own rigbt and i,tspircd 1)y as strong a sense of the rights of oflters, wc live in l)eaec and harnlony with the world. Rich in the priceless pos- session of al)nndant resources, where, the unstinted hounty of God has endowed us, we are nusellishly glad when other peoples pat sonward to prosperity and l)eace. That the great privileges wc enjoy may cou- tinue attd that each conllug year may see our country more th'ntly estab- lislted in the regard and esteem of our fellow Nations is the prayer that should arse in #very thankfttl heart. "Wherefore, l, William Howard Taft, President of the United States ()f America. designate Thursday, the thirtieth of Novemher next. as a day of thanksgiving and prayer, and ] earnestly call upon my countrymen and upon ;ill that dwell under the flag of onr beloved country, then to meet in their accustomed places of worship to join in offering praise to Ahnighty God aud devottt thanks for h)ving mercies lte has given to us. "In witness thereof, I hereutato set my hand and cause the seal of the United States to beaffixed.
