No Excuse for Using Protestant Schools, Says the Archbishop. ..\\;rchldshol) llruchesi of Montreal consecrated tile new church at Cote, at St. Paul, (m the 2oth, which has ris- of en frotn the ruins of the old church, dest,'oycd by fire; and in the after- noon dedicated two parish scmols in the same parish. In the evening, the new College St. Leon in \\;Vestmount was s(demnly blessed. In congrattflat- ing the Comnfissioners and the Cath- olic resi(lents of \\;'Vcstmount on their gene,'osity, faith and patriotism in I)uilding such a school, Mgr. Bruchesi strongly advised the l)areuts to send their children to the Catholic schools where they would have the oppor- tunity of learning I)oth F.nglish and French. Here there could 1)e no ex- cuse for sending children to Protest- ant schools in order that they might learn l"nglish, for in these schools, both F.nglish and l:rcnch would he taught ou the same 1)hme. POPE'S GIFT TO SCHOOL. .The free school for Italian child- ren on Mill street, near St. Mary's Academy, Portland, Ore., conducted I)y the Jesuit Fathers of St. Mich- ael's church, was recently presented with a unique and beautiftfl painting by Itis Holiuess, Pope Pius X., and i)lans are being made to dispose of it for the benefit of the school. The i)ainting, which was one of the treasures of the Vatican is in oil on black marble. Its subject is St. Charles Borromeo kneeling before the \\;:irgin and the Iufant Cbrist. The painting is evidently of great age, prohalfly by some artist of the late sixteenth or early seventeenth centHry. SECRET YET "KNOWN.' Regarding the reportc(i alloeution of the l:'o0c to the Card;na;s at lhe Cousistory on Monda,' as sn!atnlar- ized in the press dispaiches and pub- lished by nearly all the daily papers, it must be borne in mind that the Consistory was a secret oue at which only the Cardinals were present. There was no reporter present to take down what the Pope said. We !are inclined to suspect that the re- :ported "alloeution" was "fixed up" by some enterprising correspondent. SUNSHINE. Sunshine makes glad the heart, not only of Ifim who carries it about, but the hearts of others likewise. God did not intend that we should be amiable of disposition, kind, tender- hearted, cheerful, and happy, merely for our peace and contentment, any more than Ite made the sun merely for the purpose of shining because it was bright, or the violet to have a ! sweet perfume just for its own sake. There was a wise purpose in all this. God had in view our relation to our fellow-men. It is therefore an es- tablished law that we cannot be happy ourseh, es if we do not make others bappy, and one way in which we can accomplish this is by hring- ing to bear upon them the influence of it sunny life. ]n this connection it should always be renaembered that sunshine has its[ uses in making our religion what it] should be--a thing of brightness.[ There is danger of making it appear I too cold and gloomy. God did not intend it to be thus. It is a difficult matter to induce men to accept re- ligion and its practices, if they are left under tbe impression that there- by they are establishing themselves in the sunless attd gloomy region of an arctic land. Surely such sugges- tion must make it difficult to "choose the better part." Let joy, brightness, geniality, tempered by the spirit of our Lord, eharacterise our religion; and even the most prejudiced will at least attend and admire. Let us make use of sunshine every- where. If cares came, let us go at them with sunshiny hearts; they will soon melt away under its power. "If :afflictions conte, nothiug will so brighten the sickbed as sunshine. If the home is darkened I?y the shadow of death, sunsliine will lighten it and show us the golden stairway up which otn" departed have gone. Sun- shine, suushine everywhere--in the world, in the home, in geueral.

POLES CELEBRATE INSURRECTION DAY. The Poles of Little Rock and Ar- genta held a mass meeting Sunday night in their lodge hall in Argenta in honor of the anniversary of the great Polish "insurrection day," which corresponds in a measure to the Independence Day of Americans. During the morning the day was celebrated with a church service, mass being observed at the Polislt i church in Baring Cross. In the even- ing there were nmnerous patriotic Sl)ceches, the singing of the uational hymn, etc. Noveml)er 29 is the real anniversary, but the celehration was arranged for Sunday in order to accommodate a greater number of l'olish citizens.
