VARIETIES. Spread of Mohammedanism. IT OUT&TEIPS CHBISTIAJSEITT nr ASIA. ' APEICA. The assertion that Mohammedanism is ad vancing far more rapidly than Christianity in Asia and Africa lias often been made of late years; but when it was repeated a short time ago in the English. Church. Congress by a dignitary of the Church it was received with surprise and anger. The speaker was the Rev. Isaac Taylor, Canon of York, and his exact declaration was that " in Asia and Africa Islam; as a mis sionary religion, is more successful than Christianity, and our efforts to convert the Mohammedans have failed." Having, since the Congress, been challenged to prove these statements, and produce the facts to sustain bis generalizations, Canon Taylor now answers his crities and que&ticn^rs through the London Times. D He points out that, according to the census returns, the Mohammedan population in India increased 9,239,062 between 1871 and 1S81, or about 25 per cent. After making ample...

Petersburg Catholic Bazaar. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 13 April 1888
Petersburg Caibolie Bazaar. The Bazaar was continued on Fri day and Saturday last and closed on the evening of the latter day. most "of the articles on sale being disposed of during this period. The gross proceeds so far as known at present amount to about £130 but this sum will be increased by the addition of other monies yet to come in. When everything is taken into consideration-amongst others the poor season, the fact that the Bazaar follow ed closely on a similar event held in aid of the Church of England, and the various other attractions of Easter week-we think the ladies taking part can be heartily congratulated on the success of their efforts, whilst the result m list, we are sure, be very gratifying to the energetic pastor-Father Norton. In our last i*aue we referred briefly to the three stalls and we now give the names of the various ladies assisting: Mrs Brady's and Mrs CPHare's Stall -Mrs Nelson, Misses Blunsdeu (2), Cavenagh, White, McMahon, Graney, Brady, O'Loghlin (2...

The Paris branch of the banking firm is said to keep a capital of §300,000,000 at its command. Five generations ago, the blood which now rales these millions was selling old clothes in the .Tewidi. quarter of - Frankfort-on-the Mjain, and when Madison was President the &est millionaire Rothschild died leaving only §5,000,000. _ ;I once visited the" home of -all the Roths childs at Frankfort, and looked at the little "backing house where years ago Anseltn Meyer Rothschild began to take articles on pawn and to shove notes for so much per cent. It is in-the dirtiest part of Frankfort, and it has about the same surroundings as .Five Points, New York.
