Between 183o anti 19oo the Catholics have spent over ]o0o millions of francs on their churches alone, and they have established schools in which l more than ]5o,ooo children receive a Catholic education. lu 8oo Catholic pul)lic worship wits forbidder, by law in tlolland and the Catholics. nuulbered ouly 3oo,ooo, while today they are two millions, and occupy leading po,itions in public life, in the cal]inet and in parlia- nleut. The hie,'archy, which was restored in ,85o, consists of the Archhishop of Utrecht with the suffragan Bishops of Bois-le-l)uc, Breda, Har- lem and Ruremonde, and it is oh- vious that if the new Cardinal is to be chosen from this country the choice will fall on Mgr.

Anlerica luakes itnnouncelllCUt of a new u)agazine, "The Conllnon Cause," which will be launched in New York in the uear future. The new enterl)rise is not to I)e distinctively Catholic or denomina- tional in any sense. "'l'he great so- cial l)roblems of the day do uot af- fect one faith or one class more :]lall another," says its prospectus "St)cialism is not "t peril to one I)ody of citizens, but to all ' The board of editors consists Of men whose names are familiar to us: James J. Walsh, I)ean of Fordhan University; Conde D. Pallen, Manag- ing Editor of "The Catholic Ency- clol)edia"; Bird S. Colcr, former (Tomptroller of Greater New York; Charles 11. McDermott, author of "The Gospel of Greed"; Thomas F.I \\;Voodlock, l'resident of the Laymen's Lel, gue for Retreats and Social Studies; l?eter \\;V.

Meader, Managing Editor of the new magazine itself. Besides this publication, several other entcrl)rises are to he counected with the Social I.eforn] Press, wheuce it is to 1)c issued. First, there is to be established a l:)ublic - ity llurcau, whose object it is to supl)ly, free of charge, for the daily and weekly press of our country, such pol)ular articles as shall cover all the varic)us l)hases of social work ;:nd l)resent a truthful 1)icture of So- cialism to the American public. Secondly, an Information Bureau is to 1)e maintained, with a full SUl)l)ly of literatu,-e, I)oth for and against Socialism. The services here is like- wise to be cut]rely free. A list, moreover, of lecturers is to he kept on lile, and no agent's COmlnission is to I)e exacted for the engagements made through this medium. "There is no need, no excnsc for Socialism. But there is sore need of social reform," is the n)otto chosen for the now magazine. BAD ACTORS. The recent statistics collected hy the United States' Government on the suhject of divorce show that ac- tors are the worst sinners when it comes to seeking relief from undesir- able life-partners. This fact alone hell)s us to unde,'stand why it s that the Church has serious douhts as to the effects of the stage upon puhlic morality. More than half the plays presented nowadays are uufit to he witnessed I)y 1)ure-minded men and women, not to speak of young people, who are particularly exposed to feral)tat]on through hearing these suggestive and l)ositively indecent lines which constitute the hon m()ts of the average theatrical perform- ance. The versatile Mr. !)ooley. is repress,)ted on one occasiou as be- ing struck with the inconsistency of these good ladies who go to theaters and make a fuss over dissolute ac- tresses, who wouhl have boiling wa- ter thrown Ul)On tl]e,n if they even so nluch as ventured into the afore- said ladies' back yards. Bad plays in the hands of dissolute actors and actresses are the most insidiou forms of corruptirm, but it is the supposedly good people who keep on patronizing them. ENGLISH CONVERTS IN THE PRIESTHOOD There is ,tot and cannot he any. greater ohjcct lesson of the drawing l)ower of the Catholic Church than the exhihit presented iu the new edi- tion of Mr. W. Gordon's now well-kuown "Converts to Rome." I t is no nlere general statement of a crowd who have beet)me Catholics but it gives the nantes, residences and public station of men and women who dominate the l)agcs of \\;Vho's Who in Fngland. They have been drawn to the Church not by personal vanity or worldly aml)ition, but for conscience sake. Many of them have made very notable sacritices in order to aet ,'ight with God. The list is a roll of hono 2 that might well be quoted on various occasions. There is no lnore l)ower- ful argument for the Church than the one coutained it] this exhibit. It inch]des the nan]cs of 572 clergymen of the Chnrch of Eng- laud, 23 of the Church of Scotland, 2 of the Church of Ireland, and 3 Non-conformist ministers. There arc 29 peers and 53 peeresses 5,32 who are described as "members ) .  , (f the nol)fl]ty, 42 baronets and 2i knights. The names are given of 3oa clergy,hen's wives, 35o clergy- men's daughte,'s and 269 clergymen's sons; 3o6 of these couverts were ottlcers of the army and 64 of the royal navy. Of university graduates, 586 were of Oxford University, 346 of Cam- bridge, 24 of l)urham and 63 of Trinity ('ollcge, Dul)lin, 420 were "pul)liC school nten," l:.ton beading the list with 93 names. Of these, 612 have hccome l.oman Catholic priests, of whom 369 be- came secular priests and 243 joiued one or other of the monastic orders Of these latter, ]o9 became Jest, its.

VULGARITY IN WOMEN. One of the saddest days in the life of a man who is naturally relined and properly educate(l comes when he is disillusioned about women. In his, boyhood his mother was his queen and his ideal of all womankind, his sisters hc regarded as superior be- ings because of their sweet, pure lives which shed an added halo round his own youug life. ht his home he knew only his mother and his sisters, and from them he learn- ed to think highly of women in gen- eral, to be convinced that woman- kind was all that is best and gentlest and kindest, and most modest and most lovable in the hun]an race. He knew no other women but those of his own household, intimately or well enough to scrutinize their faults of character. 1 ndeed, what slight faults he perceived in his mother and sisters he did not account as such; to him they l)ossesscd nothing 1)ut virtues. But he grows to manhood and mingles with the world; he rea(ls and hears of women who are different from those who in child- hood and yonth were his ideals. At lirst his awakening is a surl)rise and gives him a shock, 1)ut his experience makes him grow accustomed to not- ing the difference between relined WOlllell al]d those who are not re- tined. Now aud then he meets or ol)- serves women who are coarse and vulgar ;111([ worse. If hc is ahle to keep his mind refreshed with the n]emory of his mother and sisters he will not lose his first reverence and regard for womanhood, although his ,nental attitude towards the sex will he changed aud caution and distrust will go before adntiration. Vulgar wolllcu are more vulgar than vulgar men, because vulgarity in women is more disgusting, more shocking to the natural iuclination of well nurtured men who look to women for retinement and for the modesty and decorum which betoken it. Are there not more really vulgar women today in. the world than there have ever I)eeu before? Ar, d in this great free Couutry, whcrc the WOUleU ell- joy, like the men, m(.c lihmty than in any other country are not the ,]umhers of vulgar W31ile,t becol]lhl., exceedingly large? There are re- fined 1)eople, men and women, but they are given to aloofness because of their refiuente,t, while the vulgar peoeple catch the ear aud atract the eye at every turn and till the news- papers with their noisy and disgust- lug affairs. Women may he g,'owing ntore independent ,nd self-reliant in this age, hut are they not doing so largely at the expe],se of refinen)ent? --Western \\;orld. CURIOUS BITS OF HISTORY By A. W. MACY. DIOCLETIAN AND HIS BATHS. That tho ancient Romans, or some of them at least, kept their bodies clean Is proved by the ruins of very extensive baths found at Rome. The Baths of Diocletian, for In- stance, the ruins of which are in evidence today, covered an area about one mile in circum- ference, and there are others. It Is sall that when the 9aths of Diocletian were In full oper- ation they must have nccommo- dated net less than three thou- and bathers at a time. With some of the emperors bathing seems to have been a sort o fad, aa they expended vast sums In the rection of b;h houses and bathing apparatus. Dloclstlan, however, does not depend ent(rely on the baU for his place In history. He be- came emperor In 284, A. D., and abdicated In 305. Two years before his abdication he became very active In persecuting Christians, eo much so that In the annal= of martyrdom his reign Is alluded to as "the Dio- cletian Era." It le said that the Diocletian bath= were built by Christians, 40,000 of them be- Inq compelled to do the work. (Copyright, 1911, by Joselh B.

The University of Notre Dame, in the enforcement of a rule enacted hy the faculty in Septemher, forbidding the use of cigarettes, SUSl)ended three students for violating the rnle. The suspended students were given fair w;trn{ng. The rule was new, and a warning to show that the authorities ('f t::e uuiverity regarded the rule as serious was just. On t]rst offense, the parents of thc offenders were also notilied, One reply is typical of all: "l have written my son that I re- gard your rule with favor, and will support you in its enforcetnent. Its need expect no sympathy from the if he violates it agaiu You are doing line work in helping to suppress the cigarette." The authorities of the university, when they placed the ban on cigar- MY GRIEF IS MORE THAN I CAN BEAR.
