The fact that Dean YVilliara McNulty, of tSt. John’s Catholic Church, Patterson, New Jersey, visits saloons regularly has caused no scandal among either members of hit flock or the good people of PaU terson. When the Dean leaves his comfortable rectory, next to his large and handsome church on the main street of the city, and the day happens to be on Sunday, it is safe betting every time that he is oflF on one of his usual trips—remarks an exchange. His destination may be one saloon or he may stop at a doznen before he returns home. After each excursion of this kind the man whose saloon has thus been favored usually hears something drop. That something is invariably a summons from the city recorder to answer to a charge of violating the Sunday ordinances. Lately “Father Mac,” as everybody calls him in Patterson, had been allowing his pet habit more than u.tiual latitude. He has taken to visiting jx)ker rooms. His maiden effort in this line was made a few days ago. Tne Dean had to climb three flights of stairs to reach the particular gambling den he was looking after, and he didn’t propose to be disappointed after going that far. Hence when an individual tried to shut the door ou him he put into practice an old trick in which he become proficient through his long experience in making excursions lo salo ns. He placed his f ot on the noor jamb, prevented tho door closing. Then he calleti a policeman whom he had brough* with bin to see the sights, and in a moment the man on the other side of of the room stepjied aside. The Dean gazed ou the suddenly suspended poaer game a moment. The players appeare<l to realize that ‘•Father Mac’’ held a “royal flush,” and when he proceeded to j>ocket the chips they mumiired not a word of reproch. J’lie policeman took the jiroprietor into custody and the prie.-t went home to his rectory w'ith the clfips as relics of his exciirieon. Father McNulty has been in Patterson ab<*ul twenty-eight yiars. he is a typical Irish priest, energetic, witty, learned and sympathetic The secret of his excursion habit lies io his antagonism to gambling. He has grown gray in the service of his (.’Iiurch, ami much of his activity has been directed against what he declares are the greate t curses of the working classes—CoNnrrtiruft i'atJiolJc. SOME SENSE, BUT MOSTLY MOONSHINE. ¡The (. Htholic He view.) Tlie difference betweui the Massachusetts and the Ohio opposition to Catholicity is parti}" in the o^qiosing elements in the iwo states, and partly, perhaj)s, in the (.'atho ics ihem-selve-'. 'I'he p«*ople ol Mass«achuseits are a highly intellectual pco }>le. They have rea-’on to be prouil of the gr^a number and the good stainling of their schools an<i eol.eges. Most of the non-Catholics of that state seem to have outgrown the former antagonism to the Catholic religion, a- a result partly no doubt of the iiumanizing effect of increased iiis lelligence. As for the iion*Cathol c element of ()hio, it does not seem to have made much of a figure in the intellectual progress of the time. Ohi<* is chiefly, si* far at least as the uoii-C’alliolic element is concerned, an agricultural eUate, and farmers are not iisjally a lirogre-isive class. As for the Catholics themselves; Those of M assaehuselts are among the l* Catholics in the Unilea States. 'I’ney are a quick, bright, improving body of men and women, eager t<> acquire v^'hatevor new thing is of ad vantage to the cause of rei ligion, rea ly to identify themselves w i-h every jniblic movement that is worthy of support, and always eager and at the same time prepared, l.> take *arl with their non-CatlioIic fellow citizens in sympathe ic and sincere alliance for the common interest of their state. The ( ’atliulics of Alas.-acliusetts show the same intellectual alertness that distinguishes their non'*cathulic fellow.citizens. .\ii important characteristic of the Ma sacliiisetts Catholics is that tin ¡r prcilo.ninatit * leinettt    KtnjUsh ami habitually use no other iau- guage. 'Flu C'uthol cs of Ohio are a very iiunieroos l>ody of exemplary Christians. They have three dioceses, the oldcst^f which, thit of Cincinuiti, dates from tlie early jxirlion ot this century. But the laiglish language is nut so prevalent among them as among the Ma sacliusetis Catholics. In the field of intellect, a sort of Bo*-otiaii sluggishness has m-arked Ohio in general. Can it be that this has affected the (.’alholits, too, and thus, along with the shyness resulting from a want of familiarity with the common speech of the American people, has prevented the Catholics of Ohio from receiving from their non Catholic fel'ow citizens that attention anj consideration wUich their numbers, their virtue aud their geueral contribution to the public good would entitle them to receive? The northern jiortion oí Ohio jjderived its first inhabitants from Connecticut, the central jiortion largely from Pennsylvania and the southern portion from Virginia, But Ohio in its attitude towards Catholicity seems to be not much in advance of what the people of those three great states were more than a century ago, when when the first settlers made their rough and dangerous way across the wild forests and the rugged moun» tains to their new home. The Cath* olica of Ohio ought to be up and doing. It is time for them to begin to impress themselves on the land that is their home and that is to be the home of their children and their children’s children for generations! BARDSTOWN, KY. May 30th, ’92. Thursday, the 26th, was Ascension day, the day on which our divine Lord ascended into heaven. It was a holiday of obligation and prayer. Our Divine Lord ascended into heaven for three principal reasons; first, to heiid, according to his prom-* ise, the Hoiy Ghost upon his Apostles; second, to open the gates of heaven for the saints who were waiting for him in Limbo, not only to open it for them, but for all others who would merit it by their good works; third, because he had completed his work ou earth and had nothing to retain him longer. The forty hours devotion began at St. Joseph’s Sunday the 29th, and closed Tuesday at 10 o’cDck. Con fessions will he heard Saturday evening aud all day Monday in order to give the faithful ample opportun ity to approach the Sacrament The faithful are commanded to spend an hour in adoration of our Lord, in atonement for the insults they have < ffered him. Tilt re were about fifty boys and girls, whit« and colored, who made their first Holy Communion the 1st of iMay at St. Jo eph’s Church. The children occupied the front seats on the right and left of the main aisle. When the time came for them tc receive Holy Communion, headed by tw.» flov.-er girls strewing flowers, and si.x aco'ytes bearing the cen.-ors and lighted tapers, they filed in double ranks “down the main aisle and then divided in single ranks aud mirched up the side aisles into the sanctuary where they formed a semi circle aroun 1 the Altar and there received Communion,and then marched d *wn the ailes again back to the position occupied by thc-m before. On the 4th, Conformation was administered to them by the Rt. Rev. Bishop McCloskey at 9 o’clock in the morning. Saturday the eve of Pentecost will be a day of fast and abstinence. Bellk Rudd. POPULAR TALK ON LAW. nV WM. C. SDliAIJUK, ES(¿. The Massachusetts, Connecticut and Hhode Island Colonies. 'Fhe government wicli the Puritans founded was democratic. All the raeiibers of the church met in a gen* eral assembly, and made the laws, until H>39, a representaive body was elected to take the place of this popular legislature. Their governor wa^ elected from their own number. In 1020, King Charles I confirme<l a grant made by theP ly moth company to ‘‘ Tlie g •vernor and company of the Massachusetts Bay in Neir England,” and gave tiiem powers of gov* ernrnent. 'Fhe charter gave pow r to elect annually a governor, deputy governor, am I e gliteen assistants. Four “great ami general courts” were to be held every year, t-J consist of the governor or deputy,ihe assistauts and the freemen. These courts were authorized to appoint such otH jers as they should think proper, and also to make such laws and ordinances as to them sh(*uld seem meet; jirovided they were ijQt eontrary to the'bT England. its lorm of government was the same as that of the Pilgrims at Plymouth—first popular and finally representative. This charter was «leclare*! forfeited to the king in, a id ill 11*91, a sec ind charter was ^ranted, which continued in force down to the Revolution. This second charter merged Plymouth, New Hampshire, Maine and Nova Scotia in Massjichu etts. Maine continued a part of Massachuetts, until it became a state in 1820, and Massacluis its and Plymouth were never separate<l. Discontented Massachusetts coK onists planted three towns on the Coiineciicul river, between 1034 and in U*:pi^ and, 16-39, these towns united the adopted a constitution called “'Fhe fundamental order of Connecticut.” These three with a settlement at Ne*v Haven, and others on Long Island Sound soon united ill one colony under the name of New Haven. They had no charter and no title to their laud; but, in 11)62, Charles II. granted them a charter, which remained in force, save daring five years, for 156 years. The people of this colony, by the express words of their charter were entitled to the privileges of natural-born subjecD, and invested with all pow ers of government, the only limitation being that their laws should not be contrary to those of England. So well were the people satfied with it, that Connecticut did not adopt a constitution till 1818. Another offshoot from Massachusetts was Rhode Island, and ' as in the last cases, the Rhode Island colonists had, at first, no grants either of land or power. The Rhode Island colonists were Baptists, under the lead of Roger Williams. They were driven out of Massachusetts colony in 1635, one division of them founding Providence and the other Rhode Island plantation. In 1663, Charles II. united them under the name of “Rhode Island and Providence Plantations,” and gave it powers of government similar to those of the Connecticut colonies. The Rhode Island charter continued in force, .with but a brief interim, until 1842. The colony of New Hampshire, which became a royal conloy in 1692, was founded by Capt. John Mason and S’r Ferd*-inando Gorges, by a grant of the old Plymouth colony in 1622. Their territory being betw"een the Merrimac and Kennebec rivers. Massachusetts claimed this territory, and for the most part, the New Hamphire settlements were subject to her government until 1692. PRESIDENT SPENCER’S APPEAL. CoLOBED Catholic Congress U.S 1 Office of President, v No. 137 King St., ) Charleston, S. C., June 1st, ’92. To the JjQlegates of the Third Cath'> olic Congress, Dear Sirs and Brothers;—I feel it incumbent upon meat this time, in the interest ot the great work in which we are engaged and on acs count of the official action of the last Congress, to call your attention to the importance of the hour, the responsibility of your posit'on as honorable delegates, and the sacred obligation thereto attached. You aware of the fact that we stand pledged before the people, for the printing and publishing of the minutes of the several Congresses, and to that end a circular letter was issued by the executive committee, dated April 15th, 1892, calling your attention to the obligation and requesting your [irompt action in collecting from your Catholic constituents your assessments, and forwarding It to Mr. Frank Dorsey, 1614 Thompson SSt., Philadelphia, Pa., who is Tieasurer of the Executive Committee. I regret to say that I have been officially informed that the delegates are very slow and indifferent in forwarding their assessment. I there* fore, by virtue of the authority vested in me and in the interest of the Colored Catholics of America, earn> estly appeal to you, their honored representatives, to discharge jour sacred obligation by responding at once and thus extend to me that support and assistance needed in my earnest and determined effort to carry out the instruction and worthy intention of the Congress in printing and distributing the minutes With your earnest co-operaiion success is inevitable. I therefore ask that you will not, at this important stage, desert and forsake me in my eff #rts to carry out successfuUy the worthy object above stated. The minutes are now in the hands of the printer, and further progress of the "svork cannot and must not be stopped. Will you then at this iaa^ portant crisis refuse to co-operate with me, or shall I find myself strengthened and encouraged by receiving the unanimous support of ■ ■ true Catholic priociples that actuated and controlled your actions and sentiments on the 6tn of January last, when by y^mr united action I was elevated to that high and re-spo isible office, the obligations of which I am now endeavoring to dis* charge. I sincerely trust then that you will recognize the rt8ponsibi*ity of your position by manifesting suffix dient Catholic pride to aid in makiug our efforts a crowning success, and thus insure for the noble cause, in which we are engiged, a brighter future. Fraternally yours. Jas. a. Spencer, President. FOR AMATEUR EMBROIDERERS. Hint* and Sugrg^efttlons for Their Help and Guidance. A few suggestions to amateur embroiderers may be useful—especially in regard to the pressing which is no unimportant part of the work. Work done on a frame is usually straighter and less apt to be puckered than that done over the fingers; but even then fine linen will often draw a little under close embroidery unless done by a skilled workwoman. If the embroidered article you wish to press be of linen use a table or board made very soft by several thicknesses of blankets, and covered with a clean white cloth. Lay your work upon it, wrong side up, and be careful to keep the edges very straight. Dampen a sponge and rub gently over the article until it is quite wet and press with a hot iron, which should be most carefully tested to see that it will not scorch, and also that it is absolutely clean and smooth. If there is any uncertainty about the condition of the iron put a damp cloth over the embroidery and press through thaL Embroidery done with floss or silk should be kept as neat as possible, so that washing may not be necessary at first; for, while the floss may be warranted to wash (and indeed most of it does retain its color perfectly unless done by one unaccustomed of thing), there is danger of the embroidery becoming roughened and the threads pulling. Work done on silk or satin must be pressed with a cooler iron than on linen, for it is more liable to scorch—and besides many colors of silk fade from too great heaL It cannot be dampened, either, as that would stiffen the silk; but if the embroidery j is hea'vy and the work puckered badly, the embroidery itself may be moistened slightly. Always remember to press on the •wrong side; and in order to give your work a rich,    look, be sure to have the cover on the table very soft. Yellow is the mosta reliable wash color for anything that is to have hard wear; but for everyday use on the table the embroidery done in white si»k is ad-visa-ble, as it looks well with all flowers, and one does not tire of IL—^N.

For^ side walls a pound of glue instead of half a pound should be used. This is necessary to prevent the whitening rubbing off on the hands and clothes when they are brought in contact with it. This extra amount of glue will prevent all trouble for a year or two, but as there is nothing that will prevent old kalsomine from I’ubbingoff, it is always best to paper or paint the sides of a room. When kalsomine is applied to a fresh plastered wall, it should be sized with glue and a kalsomined wall which is to be papered should be treated in th© same way.—N. Y. Tribune.

'When the spring comes there is always whitewashing, and often kalsomining to be done. In the city, where one can send for a professional worker and put the whole business in his hands at a low price, the matter is easily attended to, but in the country districts this must be attended to by the housewife herself, or be done by the few unskilful hands in her employ, whose work will require her superintendence. The first thing to be done is to inspect the walls and see if they will bear another coat over the one •which has already been put on. If the wall has been whitewashed and has begun to ch’p off, it must be scraped before another coat is put on, and this is quite a serious undertaking. It means the removol of the old coats that have been put on the wall. We believe there are scrapers that come especially for this purpose. It is better to remove everything, furniture and all, out of the room to be scraped, as the fine dust of the old lime penetrates through everything. After the room has been thoroughly scraped, the new whitewash can be applied, though it is best to fill in or mend any holes in the wall -with plaster of paris, wet with paste or water. It seems to us that the very best and sweetest whitewash is made by mixing ordinary slack-lime in water, adding simply salt  enough to make it cling to the wall and to that sort    enough to give it a pearl-white tint.

What is known as Mason’s blueing is the very best to use, as it will go further and do better work and give better effect than anything else. It is an easy matter to apply whitewash, and a good whitewash brush does not cost over seventy-five cents. It may be found in any country store. A kalso-miner’s brush is a more expensive article, and ^ 8aJtj|gf{^tory one may cost as hauch as two dollars.    . A kalsomine wall which is to be re-kalsomined should be washed. It is impossible to^apply kalsomine to a wall that has been whitewashed. It would look streaked and queer. An ordinary rule for preparing kalsomine calls for ten pounds of zinc-white, mixed to a thick cream with warm water, half a pound of dissolved glue, all stirred together. The kalsomine must be applied while it is warm, adding a little hot water when it is too thick to spread easily. Old-fashioned kalsominers always spread their kalsomine on as painters usually spread their oil paint, evenly in one direction, row after row, and this is probably the easiest way for one to do who is not experL It may be jnst as well for a_beginner How Tn<llans Converse Without tho Aid •** 'P**    •““ of^Yords. Make a letter A with your hands, and lock the ends of your fingers; that is a tepee, or tent. Keep your handspixi that position, and bend them dowi^^Jiiso that your fingers point away from yjüu; that’s a house, and a very good one, because it shows how the logs are infPér-locked at the corners of the sort of houses one sees on the frontier. If you want to say you saw something, point to your eyes. To say you heard something, point to your ears. To say you slept, or are sleepy, put up one hand, with the palm side toward your head, and bend your head as if you were going to lay it on that hand. To say that you saw some one who was beautiful, put your face between the thumb and fingers of one hand, and draw your hand softly down from your forehead to your chin. A faint smirk or smile made at the same time greatly helps this sign. If the beauty you tell about •was a woman, make believe take hold of a mass of hair on right side of your head, and follow it down past tho shoulder with your hand, as you see women do when they dress their hair. These signs for seeing, hearing, sleep, beauty, and woman are exactly the same as those used by George L. Fox, . the famous clown, when he played Humpty Dumpty. I have no doubt that Grimaldi, the great English clown, also used them, for they are the natural motions for expressing those terms. Did you ever notice how the paws of small ahimals are curled in -when they are dead? This is the sign for “died’* or “dead.” Hold one hand out with the fingers bent toward the thumb to make the sign. But if you would say some one was killed, hold out a fijst with the knuckles away from you, and move the wrist slowly so as to force the knuckles down as if the person wae struck down. To tell about a child, hold your hand as far from ,th^    ^ ^as its head would reacli:'' ""up to elth^er side of the head to say “cow”; to say “dear,” put up all your fingers like branching horns. But another way to tell about a deer is to imitate his loping with one of your hands. To tell of a snake, wiggle one finger in the air as a snake would move on the ground. That sign is the name for tw'o tribes of Indians. The sign for a Sioux is to make believe cut your throat with one finger; for a Blackfoot, point to your foot; for a Blood, wipe your fingers across your mouth; for a white man, rub your hand across your forehead to show how white our foreheads are; for a Piegan, rub one cheek. The sign for water is to make a scoop of your hand and put it to your mouth as you would if you were drinking at a stream. To tell of a lake, make that sign, and spread out your hands to cover a big space. To tell of a river, make the water sign and then .trace the meandering course of a river with your finger. But the sign for whisky is made by doubling up one fist and drinking out of the top of it as if it were a bottle. If you do that, and make believe to stir up your brains with one finger, or reel a little, you will describe a tipsy man. Nearly all signs in the language are made with the right hand. The sign for a field or a prairie is the same as that for a lake, but it is followed by the grass sign instead of that for water. The sign for walking is a splendid one. Hold your hand down, shut up two fingers and the thumb, and then make the two fingers which are free go forward and backward like the legs of a person walking. The sign te indicate fear—“he was afraid” or “I az4 frightened”—is to put your right hand on your heart, and then move that hand up to your throat, as if your heart hed' left your breast and gone into your throat. If you want to ask a man te trade -with you, just cross the forefingers of both hands like a letter X. It is a curious thing that the sign lan« guage keeps on growing, even now th&% the Indians are nearly all shut t^P Q& reservations, and do not often meet either strange white men or membore 'of other tribes. Two recent additioxMl to the language are signs for a railroad andifor a match. To tell about a matohi you raise one knee and dra-w a flnj^^ rapidly along that leg.

One of the rudest ac^, in their eyes, is tQ| step over a person asleep on the floor. Sleeping is, with thena, a very solemn matter. They are strongly averse to waking any one, the idea being that during sleep the soul is absent from the body, and may not have time to return if slumber is suddenly broken.
