Languages. Reason: Because it was in these three languages Pilate wrote the in- scription on the Cross. Examples: Hebrew, Hosanna, Sa- baoth, Alleluia; Greek, Kyrie Eleison; Latin, all the rest of the Mass The Church uses the Latin language in the Mass anal in her Liturgy be- cause it is a dead language, and there- fore not subject to change in its vo- cabulary or meaning. Physicians for the same reason no matter what nmy be their nationality always write their prescriptions in Latin. At present there are twelve lan- guages used in the Catholic Liturgy, namely: 1, Latin; 2, Greek; 3, Syriac; 4, Chaldaic; 5, Arabian; 6, Ethiopian; 7, Glagolitic; 8, Ruthenian; 9, Bulgar- ian; 10, Armenian; iI, Coptic; 12, Roumanian. With the exception of Roumanian all these languages used in the litur- gy have for a considerable time no longer been the living languages of the people--but only dead languages. (See Gihr's History of the Mass, p. 319.) THE PEACE-AND-PRUDENCE PACKAGE. (Continued from last week.) Monday morning came, and with it the time for Auht Gertrude's visit was up. She nmst now return to her own home and family. As she was packing her valise, and nmking her other preparations for departing, Os- car came into the room to bid her good-by. "Aunt Gertie, I must start off for school; and, as you will be gone when I come home for dinner, I must say good-by now. I ask your pardon, dear aunt, for having been so disre- spectful to you"last week, in that af- fair with Martin Andrews. I am vei'y sorry for the wrong I did, and for the offense I must have given you. And --will you pray for me, that, when you visit us again, you may find me a beter boy than you found me to be this time?" "There is nothing to forgive, my child, and it was all forgotten, long before this," answered Aunt Gertrude. She took the boy's outstretched hand, and holding it in her own, she con- tinued: "Oscar, the humble confes- sion you made to your mother far outweighs the fault you committed. You acted bravely; and I esteem and love you the more for it. "As a parting admonition, I would say these few words to you: First, [ would encourage you to keep up a true and faithful friendship with that boy, Martin Andrews.

The friendship of such a SENDS OUT FIELD comrade will be a great blessing for you. REPRESENTATIVES Secondly, if you wish to be on good terms now with your school compan- ions and with your fellow-men through life, you must strive to become more humble. Pray incessantly for the help of God's grace, that you may subdue the spirit of pride in your heart, that you may become obedient, unsellish and charitable. Humility of heart will make you prudent in all you say and do, careful not to give offense to others; and only thus will you have peace with God, peace with yourself, and peace with your neigh- bor. "Good-by then; and may God bless you and keep you in His grace! In a few weeks from now we will have Christmas. I promise, if God keeps me alive and well till then, to send you a beautiful gift--something that will not only be a suitable present for the great (lay, but will also be a remembrance to you of the parting words I have now spoken to you." With tears in his eyes, Oscar thank- ed his aunt for her kindness; and, having received from her a parting kiss, he hurried off to school. Often did Oscar think of the pro- raise his aunt had made; and he won- dered what the Christnms gift she would send might be. He was not a little impatient that the time passed so slowly, but, at last, the few weeks were gone by, and the great day o; Christmas was near at hand. Just the day before the feast, it came--a package from Aunt Gertie, addressed to Oscar's father. Certain- ly it must contain Oscar's Christmas gift. How eager he was to have it opened. They cut the strings and tore off the outer wrapping. It was wrapped and tied a second time. On this in- ner wrapper were printed by hand, with pen and ink, the following words: "Peace-and-Prudence Package for Oscar. A Christmas gift from his Aunt Gertie." They cut the strings, and carefully took off the second covering. There was another wrapping of cotton, then the gift! What a beauty! And how Oscar laughed and clapped his hands for joy! I am sure, every one of you would have acted the same way, if you had got the gift, or even seen it. I must tell you now what it was, and describe it for you. It was a lit- tle box, about eight inches long and about six inches broad and high. On the outside it was covered with dark- blue silk. The lid as also all the sides, were set with little mussel- shells, and beads of different sizes and various colors, most tastefully and beautifully arranged, and al fastened to the blue silk covering. In the cn- ter of the lid, and at the four corners, a little space was left free, that in the middle being about twice as large as those on the corners. In each of these places was fastened a piece of fine white wrapping paper ,a little longer than it was broad; and on each paper was printed, by hand, a text from Holy Scripture. On the middle space we read the following words: "Glory be to God in the highest: and on earth peace to men of good will': (Luke ii, 14). In the upper corner, at the right, are these words: "He said to them: Peace be to you" (John xx, 19). To the left: "Peace I leave to you; my peace I give to you" (John xiv, 27). In the lower corner, to the left: "Be ye wise as serpents, and simple as doves" (Matt. x, 16). To the right: "The wisdom of the spirit is light and peace" (Rom. viii, 6). Now let us open the lid of the box and see what is inside. A greater surprise still! We exclaim: "Indeed, the real beauty lies within!" What is it? We see a heart, nmde of red silk, about tire inches long, and three and a half or four inches in diameter a regular, well-formed heart! It is set with small costly beads, and em- broidered most beautifully; and it lies, as it were, on a bed of white silk. Something light and soft, prob- ably cotton, is put under the silk, so as to fill out the box all around the heart, so that, if you fasten down the lid the heart is closed in, and rests as in a case or mould. On the inside of the lid is fastened another piece of paper, with these words printed on it: 'q'he more humble any one is in heart, and the more in subjection to God, so much the more prudent will he be in all things, and the more at peace" (Imitation of Christ, book I, chap. iv).

News Service) Washington, D. C., Nov. 28. Seven field representatives of the National Council of Catholic Men have launched the work of the formation of diocesan, state anti parish councils of that or- ganization in different parts of the United States. A model constitution, outlined at a meeting of the executive committee of the Council, held last week in this city, will be used in the fornmtion of subordinate councils, and it is expect- ed that within a few months hun. dreds of thousands of earnest and forward-looking Catholic men will have enlisted in the vital work the Council has in band. Field Organizers Sent Out. The organizers who have already taken the fieht are Patrick W. O'Grady, of New York, for the North- west'ern section; Frank J. McNulty, of New Orleans, for the South-Atlan- tic section; Vincent S. Sherlock, of Chicago, for the Middle West; Frank Farrell, of Denver, for the Rocky Mountain section; Robert W. Drady; of San Francisco, for the Pacific Coast, and George W. Boyle, of Phila- delphi/x, for the Middle Atlantic sec- tion. James M. Ryan, of Springfield, Ill., is still unassigned. Richmond Dean, of Chicago, the chairman, presided at the meeting of the executive committee of the Coun- cil of Men held here last Tuesday. Among the important projects devel- oped was that whereby councils of men will cooperate in the observance of the first Catholic press month, which has been designated by Bishop William T. Russell for celebration next March. The executive committee ratified the recent action of Michael J. Slat- tery, LL.D., secretary of the Council, in the purchase of a bupilding suit- able for the establishment of a Na- tional Training School for social serv- ice workers. Plans relative to im- provements in the edifice, which is located at 1314 Massachusetts avenue, adjoining the present headquarters of the National Catholic Welfare Coun- cil, were discussed, and the matter of, the formation of the faculty and the courses of social service work to be included in the curriculum were thoroughly gone over. The final draft of the mode] consti- tution for subordinate councils was placed in the hands of a committee headed by Judge P. J. N. Halley, of Detroit. Reports of the progress of organiza- tion in different parts of the country were heard by the executive commit- tee. Among the national organiza- tions which have already joined forces with the Council are the Catholic Young Men's National Union, the Na- tional Alliance of Bohemian Cath- olics, the Knights of St. John, Knights of St. George, and the Pacific Juris- diction of the Young Men's Institute Many state and diocesan organiza- tions have also enrolled.

Arriving at the i beginning of the month of Poor Souls,, ample opportunity has been given to! remember the dead. Several Requiem High Masses were sung during the l I month and all very fmthfully paid I 'espect for the dead by Teceiving the Sacraments frequently. Sunday, No- vember 7, two Benedictine Sisters from Shoal Creek arrived to resume the obligations of the school and Church. Monday, November 15, school opened with a High Mass by our pas- tor. The parents assembled with their children in the school after Mass and were admonished to send their children faithfully and cooperate with their pastor and the Sisters. The en- rollment numbered 24 boys and 21 girls. As this is a farming district, children are needed badly to help gather the crops, so that school terms are divided up into several parts to allow greater convenience and obtain better esults. Patron's Feast. Friday, November 19, the Patron Feast Day of the Church, High Mass was celebrated at 9 o'clock by Father Laurence Hoyt, O. S. B., who also preached a splendid sermon for the occasion. Father Kordsmeier said a Low Mass and gave Benediction with] the Blessed Sacrament. The choir I sang the Mass most beautifully and I the ceremonies were very impressive. I No efforts were spared in beautifying the House of God with flowers and decorations.

The school children rendered a very interesting program. Owing to the short time of practice, the Sisters and children deserved great credit. The young folks arranged for other amusements after the supper and an enjoyable eve- ning was spent by all. The proceeds of the day are set aside as a fund to buy a car for our pastor, as a Ford is badly needed to do justice to all three places. Masses are said at Bigelow and Dixie on one Sunday and Oppelo is looked after on the next Sunday.
