The waiter dropped the basin, causing
every man in the room to look up.
The gamblers immediately began hid

bills in the cuspidors, behind the stove,
and in every possible hiding place. Po
lice say this accounts for the compara

with the shotgun, sat down in a chair.

the life of a boy or a girl, a man or a
woman. there be honor, reverence,
veneration, love of parents, there Is a
fearful defect. Motherhood is one of
the divinest functions of human life.
When God came at his best to tho
world, he came through motherhood;
and when he touched life to its re

erhood and in childhood.
"The redeeming and life-making
power of a mother's affection and sac
rifice and service and love is the staple
of the choicest and best of literature.
Your best writers have often shown
that there is something in motherhood
which not alone ennobles, but posi
tively redeems and transfigures person
ality. Motherhood is the embodiment
of endless patience, incessant labor,
sacrifice, service and unfailing love.
Ycur best writers have always pic
tured motherhood thus, because moth
ers are thus.
"In motherhood is the highest, rich
est, divinest and most sacred part of
human life. Motherhood! how gracious,
how great, how good! Use it then as
a sacrament: use it as a means of
grace; have It as a constant altar.
Honor thy father and thy mother' and
thereby thou shalt come to the largest
and best of life."

former Governor Edward Dunne of Illi

prisoners in Mount Joy prison and later
called on Archbishop Walsh. At a re

the government under which they lived.
The Irish people, he concluded, had
selected their own form of govern
ment and it would come perhaps in
six months, perhaps within a year.
