That the divinity of thq Chnrch is proved by the historical value of the New Testament; but the historical value of the New Testa- ment is not proved by the Church but by mere critical arguments. The Church could be proved without ttu Bible. Her unity, holiness, Catho- licity and apostolicity bear witness to her divinity. I4. That baptism given by those outside the Church is valid when ad- ministered with the right intention with the right words and in the right nlanner. I5.

One of the leading spirits in tile 7ormation of Little Rock Conncil, Knights of Colnmhus, was Louis Koers. One of the enthusiastic, faithful members of tile council to- day is this same individual. To show their appreciation for services rendered and to reward merit the council at the last reguhlr meeting nn'aninaously elected Mr. Koers to the high office of Gram Knight. Tile selection of Mr. Koers for this office was a happy one, for many reasons. He is a parlimentarian educated in the school of experience. His execntive ability is all that the office demands. He is a many sided of his office to prevent the cornels- George McDonald ("Seoras Douuul- sion of the crilne he was speaking of, lach") have been greatly appreciated he would have "resigned the office and gone to Honespath and have led the mob." The press dispatch dealing with the worst speech ever delivered by a Governor of a State that the farm- ers who listened to it "were shock- cd hy his open avowal of sympathy with the nlob." It adds "great in- dignation has been aroused throngh- out the State." This indignation does credit to South Carolinians. They are justified in condemning one who, though pledged to hohl the shield of the law over all, whether they be white or black, rich or poor, has proveu himself to be nothing more nor less than an anarchist, who has earned for himself tile con- by all our readers. This week we are glad to be able to publish an- other front the same clever pen. Speaking of Dr. Roche's panaphlet, "Masges For the l)ead," the Buffalo Union and Times says: "l;ather Roche handles his snbject 1)ointedly, as he handles every suhject, and lfis vigorons style is ill evidence in ev- ery page of the booklet." 1Hshop l;allon's course of Sunday sermons in the London Cathedral is attracting eonsiderahle attentiou..

That Catholics sin in spite of the Church, not because of it. 4I. That only God can condemn a man to hell. 42. That there cannot be morality without religion. 43. That nuns are not admitted nor retained in convents against their will. 44. Marriage between Christians is indissoluble. 45. That they are prohibited mar- rying those outside the Church not because of any superiority of morals in themselves, but because of the danger of loss of their faith. 46. Catholics are allowed to marry in Lent or Advent, but not with solemnity. 47. That Mary should be honored next to God, but infinitely less; that they should venerate, but not wor- ship her, her pictures and images. 48. That honor given to Mary, :he Mother of God, redounds to the l honor of God, her Son. 49. That the Immaculate Concep- tion means that Mary was conceived without incurring the stain of sin. 50.

In a sermon recently at the re- opening of a churclt in England 13ishop Vaughan (brother of the famous Father Bernard) eloquently remarked npon the magnificent cathedrals erected throughout the man.

Excursion trains from Paris and Scranton brought a large number of vistors to witness the play. The drama presented on this oc- casion was Carleton's "More Sinned Against Than Sinning," and the ex- cellent rendition of this drama called forth high praise from the large and appreciative audience. As usual the orchestra under the admirable direc- tion of Father Luke, O. C. B., gave sanctuaries where He dwelt. It was dnring the ages of Faith, before the so-called "Reformation," when every- one in this land was Catholic, that the great cathedrals and abbeys arose in all their beauty in every part of I,'ugland. Men felt the suprelne ma- jesty of their divine Guest, and they yearned to build Him a dwelling place as worthy of Him as was possible. It was the abiding thought of His Sacramental Presence that in- spired the architects and enabled them to design those masterpieces which are still the glory of the land, and the adnfiration of all who see them. It was the vivid' realization that the Incarnate God was living in their midst, that induced rich and poor readily to strip themselves of their gods and possessions in order to supply the means of raising those glorious temples, those poems wrought in stone and marble, north and south, east and west. Look at Westminster Abbey, or at the cathe- drals of Canterbury or Durham, or Salisbury or Gloucester, or York, or indeed, at any of the gorgeous struc- tures that dot the land. What is their history? They were designed, in Catholic times, by Catholic archi- tects, and paid for by the generosity of the Catholics of those days, be- cause they were destined to form the homes and the dwilling places, and the special audience chambers of l God-made-lnan. There He held His court; there He gathered around Him the spiritually halt and feeble and sick; there He fed the multitudes with Hi.s own sacred Body and Blood; there, amid the ringing of bells, the swinging of censers, and the fragrance of incense, the peal of organs, and the chanting of chorist- ers, He offered Himself up in the Holy Mass, an expiation for our sins taking upon Himself at once the of- rice lmth of Priest and of Victim. Then, after a thousand years of Catholicity, there came the spiritual revolt of the sixteenth century. The Real Presence was denied; the altars were broken up; and the altar stones )laced at the church entrance, where all might tread upon them, dishonor and trample them underfoot.

Cole Blease, Governor of South Carolina, deliver- ed a speech which we cannot charac- terize in fitting terms. It is one which all South Carolinians who are jealous of the fair name of South Carolina will regret and condenm. Never has the official head of any State in the nion employed such re- prehensible language as that used by Governor Blease, who approved mblicly of the lynching of a negro by a mob. Here are the facts in the case: A negro .was lynched at Honespath, S.C. The crime with which he was charged and for which he paid with the forfeit of his life was the one that has caused so nlany lynchings in the Southern States. If 56.

That indulges do not remit sin, but remit the temporal punish- ment due to sin. 58. That to buy indulgences would be simony. 59. That confession of silts is not sufficient to merit forgiveness, but contrition and firm purpose of amendment are also essential. 6o. That they cau have their sins forgiven only by resolving to com- mit them no more. 61. That some sins are greater nursery is $I5.OO complete with the than others. But a mob stepped in between the negro and the law and usurped the function of the courts. The Execu- tive of tlte State, whose sworn duty is to see that laws are enforced, not only has no words of condemnation for the violation of these laws by the Honespath mob, hut actually ap- proves of and praises the lawless act by which a human being was done to death. Gov. Blease was addressing an audience of a thousand farmers, when he said: "If the naob had not acted as it did I would have been Why is a duel quickly managed? ]ecanse it takes only two seconds to arrange it.

By way of emphasizing his approval of what was a crime against the State whose laws he had sworn to enforce, he added: "If the mob had not acted as it did I would have been greatly disappointed." As if this declaration were not shocking enough in itself he supplemented it with the state- Thos. Lonergan Furniture Co, Old Phone 396. 618 Main St. 62.

Great Results Expected From Catholic Truth Campaign. Meutbers of the Catholic Trnth Society dwell with much satisfac- tion on rite change that has taken flace in the attitude of Englishmen towards the Catholic Church. Many perjndices have still to be combated. They are deep-rooted. Bnt the edge of the old antagonism has been bhmted. We have had and have writers of high ability who by works that have circulated extensively have done much to enlighten the public, says the Catholic Times and Opinion of Liverpool. And we have had and have in the Bishops and clergy men whose virtues and devotion to duty could not have failed to make an nnpression on those around them. When an Englishman sees that his neighbor, whether cleric or lay- ruan, lives and acts well he is always willing to give him a good and kind- ly ltearing. At present a favorable opportunity for gaining his sympathy presents itself. Rationalists are courting his attention for publications calculated to destroy his belief in Christianity. The Catholic Truth Society has ini- tiated a campaign against them, and if it is supported as generously as it ought to be, it will result in bringing many non-Cotholic doubters into the Catholic fold. DEATH OF ESTIMABLE LADY. Mrs. Enlily M. Patterson, 72 years old, a wealthy and prominent lady of this city, died Friday afternoon at the home of Mr. and Mrs. J. E. Boyce, on Laurel street after a long illness. Mrs. Patterson suffered a severe stroke of paralysis about two years ago and that combined wtih her old age was the indirect cause of her death. The passing away of this aged lady marks the passing of one of the women of the Old South, as she was born and reared in this county and lter parents were among the early settlers of this part of the country. Since the death of her husband about 4o years ago she has lived with her grand niece, Mrs. J. E. Boyee. Mrs. Patterson is survived by one sister, Mrs. Mary Estes, of Benton; her grand niece, Mrs. J. E. Boyce, of this city and other relatives. The funeral serwces were held Sunday from St. Joseph's Catholic chnrch, of which the deceased was a devoted memher and Monsignor J. M. Lucey, assisted by other priests, conducted the servic'es.--Pine Bluff Express. .*,,4141O,@,,@,,IHMPP4P,@,,IP 41, 41, ST.
