"We expect tile oid lady to grumble a lit- tle, but we are trying to set up ideals that will be followed sufficiently to make her confine her remarks to the tea table,and not to bromlcast them to the legislatures." WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS? (Editorial, CCatholic Chronicle.) You are where your thoughts are. Your mind may take you over land and sea. You may live upon the heights, or sink to the depths. You fashion your soul to the situa- tions and surroundings where your mind dwells. You get the motives, you cherish the ideals, you live the morals of the world your heart treas- ures. So we may say of everyone: Is he good?? And the answer is: Where are his thoughts? Is he growing bet-] ter? Where are his thoughts? Is he i true, is he honest, is he devout, is he I manly? And the answer is: Where, i and in what direction, is his thoughts ? I If the answer is favorable, our will must direct our thoughts. We must make conscious effort to think well] and sanely and kindly. We must de- I termine to be unselfish and courteous I and high-minded. We must shun gos- I sip, the plays, the environments, the reading and the associations that will interfere with high and worthy aims anti thoughts and suggestions. ] The mind can thus carve its king- dom, irrespective of worldly conditons[ and surroundings. The dweller in the I lowest city slums may find heaven be- fore the dim light of the altar, while the prince of the palace cannot call to his soul a single glimmer of spiritual solace. And out of the better thoughts that possess him, the man Whose lot has cast him in the slums, will inevitably 'improve, and even recreate his en- vironment; while the son of wealth, whose thoughts run habitually to in- dulgence and crime, will surely drift to the actual sordid and seamy world, where he has placed his corrupt heart. , .,. TEST OF A HERO. Oh, it's easy to fight in the cause of the right When it's surely, steadily winning, To nobly stand with a gallant band While plaudits loud are dinning, For nothing inspires and fans the fires Of our noblest, best endeavor, Like knowing success will crown our best And glory be ours forever. But to stand with a few and yet be true To a seemingly losing cuse; To fight for the riglit with all out might, With never a note of apllaude; To stand like a brave in the face of a THE GUARDIAN Page Thirty-niam MEMORIAL TO LEE QUESTIONS MY BOOK OF ETl-'sign of the cross and say your own Realization of the south's long QUETTE DOESN'T ANSWER grace, with bowed head, after you are dream of memorial to General Rob- With which hand shouhi tlae napkin seated. err E.

A VILLAGE BY THE SEA By Rose Cecil Fanning From the little Chapel above the an- gry sea, The Angelus-bell calls out to all tran- quietly; Falling as a blessing upon the watCh- ers there, Where the writhing waters cast their cruel despair. QI sweet Mother hearken, kneeling we beg of thee, For heavy do the clouds hang o'er tile face of night. Thou art the seaman's friend O Lady of Delight. Ne'er from thy battlements have faithful souls been hurled, Shield now from tempest with its deadly arms unfurled, Keep them from the wolfish and mad reach of the sea, Lady of Light guide them to the lit- tle ones, and me. A RULE OF ACTION "Thrice blessed," writes Ralph Waldo Trine, "are they who are pleas- ant to live with; they are a blessing to themselves, to those with whom l they live, and to the worhl at large," Along this line, another writer has truly said: "There is a beautiful and an ugly way in which to say ahnost everything, and happiness depends on the way we adopt. You can upset a person for the whole day by the harsh way in which you call him in the morning, or you may give him a beau- tiful start by the cheeriness of your greeting. So not only in words, but in all the little common courtesies and duties of life--think of the beau- tiful way of doing things. A man hurried into a quick lm:ch restaurant and called to the waiter: "Give me a ham sandwich." "Yes, sir," said the waiter, reaching for the sandwich; "will you eat it or take it with you ?" "Both," was the unexpected but ob- vious reply.

One professor connected with the diploma mill has confessed and some of the doctors working with him have skipped out. The Kansas City Journal-Post, which was instrumental in exposing the fraud, said: "Prof. William P. Sachs, former superintendent of schools of Washing- ton County and state examiner of pub- lic schools, has confessed to the St. Louis prosecutor that he was one of the leaders in the crooked medical diploma "mill" conspiracy. In his confession the professor said that 15,000 men and women in this country are practicing medicine fraudulently. What more brazen and desecrating violation ,of home sanctity could be imagined than the attendance of a fake doctor listening with dull ears and counseling with unlearned tongue in the hour of travail and stress ? What greater menace to the well- being of humanity than that the sick should lean for recovery upon a "doc- tor" whose sole qualifications is tlmt he substituted money, fake and forg- ery for the honest study and toil through which sincere men qualify for the medical profession.
