To the People of the South: NEA T WEEK Sunday, December 5.--II OF ADVENTiSt. Sabas, one of the renowned patriarchs of Palestine, who early forsook the world and entered a nmnastery. Later he dwelt in a cave on top of a big mountain. His sanctity became widely knot'n and he was made superior general of the anchorites of Palestine. He died in 532 at the age of 94. Monday, December 6.--St. Nicholas of Bari, patron of Russia, a special pro- teeter of the wronged and innocent. He is generally represented stand- ing by the side of a vessel wherein a certain nmn had concealed the bodies of his three children whom he had killed, but who were restored to life by the saint. St. Nicholas (tied in 342 and his relics were trans- lated in 1807 to Bar: in Italy, where, after fifteen centuries, "the manna of St. Nicholas" flows from the bones and cures many illnesses. 't'uesday, December 7.--St. Ambrose, governor, and later chosen Bishop of Milan, who showed fearless zeal in foiling the impious attempts of the Empress Justina to give one of the Milanese churches to the Arians.

She in, heart and soul with the farmers, in an organized effort that must and will move solidly and continuously mtil relief can be obtained. Salavtion Demands United Effort. It can be done and it will be done. Salvation-from fiRancial ruin demands it; the social, educational and reli- gious betterment of the entire country requires it. There has never been, therefore ,a need so imperative and so[ great but what a remedy has been I found. Our people are wise enough, I loyal enough and big enough to work] cut their own salvation, and o bring[ to themselves an era of sane farming and correct financeering. It is believed that this will be done without a doubt at the Cotton Con- vention to be held in Memphis, De- cember 7-8, 1920. The greatest con- structive minds of the entire South will be in attendance to confer and work out a plan that will be simple, ye comprehensive. There is not an overproduction, as all will admit ,although there may be an inability of certain portions of the world to buy and pay for the raw naterial. There is therefore no ap- )arent need for the world to be with- out clothing, and the cotton producing States of the United States to sustain financial losses, and that is the rea- son why you are called together to confer. We have not the time to sit down and find fault with the failures of the past, whatever the causes might have been. Speedy action, all together, with not a thought of let up, is what is needed. This is not a cry of wolf, when there is no wolf; he is at every door in the South. We are expecting the governors and agricultural commissioners of every Southern State in which cotton is grown, L]e bankers, merchants and farmers from every tot'n, city and county in the South to attend. Yours very truly, Thos. B. King, Secretary, Memphis Cot- ton Convention. FORT SMITH. Saint Boniface Church Observes the Thirty-third Sacerdotal Annivers- ary of Rev. P. Basil, O. S. B. Sunday, November 21, marked the thirty-third Sacerdotal Anniversary of the Rev. P. Basil Egloff, O. S. B., pastor of Saint Boniface Church. The members of the parish planned a surprise for the Reverend Father on Tuesday evening when they en- tertained with a church social, at the close of which they presented him with a handsome smoking set filled with cigars, in appreciation for his great, untiring and faithful service for both our church and school. Presentation Address. Reverend J. M. Lundergan, pastor of Saint John's Church, made an elo- quent and fitting presentation ad- dress, which was responded to very fittingly by the recipient. Wishes were extended to Father Basil by the great number assembled that he would :clebrate his Golden Anniversary at le Saint Boniface parish. Lay Council. A meeting of all the members of Saint Boniface Parish was called o Sunday, November 14, by the Rev. Ft.

The two delegates to represent St. Boniface Parish were elected to be present at the general assembly to be held in Little Rock College, Sun- day, December 19, 1920. The chairman then appointed a committee consisting of the Mesdames Eliz. Goss, Lucy Luckenbill and Miss Gertrude Verfurth, to see the mem- bers of the congregation who were not present at the assembly and so- licit their membership. McCRORY. Mr. Ben Starman, of McCrory, Woodruff county, an enterprising town on the Memphis division of the Missouri Pacific, feels the loss of reg- ular church services and endeavors to make up for them in a most'in- telligent and practical manner. He is an old subscriber to The Guardian and enjoys its weekly visitation to the Starman home. This week he renews his subscrip- tion and forwards a check covering that and the subscriptions of John Koors and John A. Koester. He writes of Catholic conditions as foi- ler's: "We are here without a church to go to on Sunday and there- fore we find The Guardian very gooo company on that day. We have a very good farming country around here, the one desirable thing being a Catb- olic Church. Rev. Father Nortor comes to us as often as possible and we are riving in hopes that the future will add to out' Catholic families and give to us the means of having Mass here regularly." WEONA. The first Mass ever celebrated at Weona was offered last Sunday by the Rev. George F. X. Strassner, of We:net. The electric motor, furnished by Mr. A. J. McDonald, superintendent of the branch railroad from Truman to Weona, brought Father SLrassncr and two Mass servers just a few min- utes before twelve. Masters Francis Ruesewald and John Lehr, of Weiner, were the servers. Mass was cele- brated in the public school house. Counting children, there were about seventy-five present. The First Sun- day of Advent, as the "New Year Day" of the ecclesiastical year, sug- gested the thought of the sermon, a brief history of the Church, giving the many non-CathoIics food for thought. The disposal of nearly a dozen copies of the Catechism evi- dences the interest of the people After Mass the baptism of Margaret Susanna McDonald, the five-yem, old] baby girl of Mr. and Mrs. A. J. Me- I Donald, and Harold Gilbert Schultz,] the four months old son of Mr. and Mrs. Michael Schultz, took place. Be- fore sundown Father Strassner an(( he two ervers were speeding back on the electric motor to Truman. Their next visit, during the Christmas holidays, is anxiodsly awaited. 'rhe Catholic Church From Without," By Rev. Jas. A. Carey, Maine Cath. Hist. Society. THE CHURCH AND THE REFORMATION. The Reformers in Scotland. CHAPTER XIII. Of Knox, the leader of the Reform- ation in Scotland, Andrew tang says: "Knox, as to the doctrine of 'kill- ing no murder,' t'as, and Wishart may have been, a nmn of his time. But Knox, in telling the story of a nmrder t, hich he approves, unhappily displays a glee unbecoming a reformer of the Church of Him who blamed St. Peter, for his recourse to the sword. The very essence of Christianity is cast to the winds when Knox utters his laughter over the murder or misfor- tune of his opponents, yielding, as Dr. McCrie says, 'to the strong pro- pensity which he felt to indulge his vein of humor.' Other good men re- joiced in the murder of an enemy, but Knox chuckled."John Knox and the Reformation, p. 17. And elsewhere : "The whole theory of the duty of destroying idolaters was congenial to a nation of long clerished revenges, violent crimes and deadly feuds. But it was eminently unchristian, as was that 'spiritual' hatred which betrayed Knox trite scandalous insinuations, and that bullying truculence of tone t'hich was rebuked by the urbanity of Ninian Winzet. There was, in short, a great deal of 'the old man' in Knox's character and gospel. This was natural and pardonable; but that his gospel and example were ideally excellent, and an unmixed boon to his country, few of his countrymen who know Knox and his Reformation at first hand are likely to contend."-- History of Scotland, p. 88. I Hallam says of him: I "In a conversation with Maitland : he asserted most explicitly the duty of putting idolaters (Catholics) to death. Nothing can be more sanguin- ] ary than the Reformer's spirit in this extraordinary interview." Constitu- tional History of England, note p. 18. "Truly the Reformation is terribly smeared with blood! One would think it were the desci-iption of a chamber of horrors; and so it was. DAUGHTER OF CHINESE PAGAN BECOMES NUN Maryknoll, Nov. 26.--While in Mon- treal, Bishop de Guebriant, Apostolic Visitor to China, presided at the in- vestiture in the religious habit of a young Chinese woman, the daughter of a well known pagan in Canton.
