DISEASES CAUSED BY DRINK. [Newspaper Article] — The Sacred Heart Review — 27 April 1889
DISEASES CAUSED BY DRINK. Dr. Richardson says that it constantly happens that persons die of diseases which have their origin solely in the drinking of alcohol while the cause itself is never for a moment suspected. A man may be considered by his friends and neighbors, as well as by himself, to be a sober and a temperate man. He may say quite truthfully that he never was tipsy in the whole course of his life ; and yet it is quite possible that such a man may die of disease caused by the alcohol he has taken, and no other cause whatever. This is one ofthe dreadful evils of alcohol, that it kills insidiously, as if it were doing no harm, or if it were doing good while it is destroying life.
A TRUE INCIDENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Sacred Heart Review — 27 April 1889
A TRUE INCIDENT. Long years ago, before any of us were born, children, a temperance speaker visited a country village in the north of England, and one of his audience, a young boy, signed the pledge. He went home and told his mother ; she called him "stupid." The workman at the shop said he would die without beer. The lad then went to the keeper of a workhouse, and asked him if the paupers died from want of beer. He was told that rum sent them there, and that they were happier without it. He then went to the jail and asked how many prisoners died from not having beer. He was told not any. He was satisfied, and he has kept the pledge ever since, and that was forty years ago. Boys, follow his example. — M. Rena Wolsey.
LIFE MISTAKES. [Newspaper Article] — The Sacred Heart Review — 27 April 1889
LIFE MISTAKES. When will well-meaning parents cease trying to make their children the exact counterpart of themselves? Of all the millions of human beings who now exist, or who have existed on the face of the earth, God has created no two in form and feature alike ; at the grave of each, personality is forever destroyed. This is as true ofthe minds as ofthe bodies of men and women. Why, then, seek to undo His work, and force nature violently and needlessly into contrary channels? Says the father : "When I was a boy, 1 did and felt so and so" ; and without any more knowledge of his son's inner life than his neighbor may have of him, he forthwith stretches him on this narrow bed of precedent, cramping, disfiguring, lopping off' what, if trained and allowed to grow judiciously and healthily, would have proved an aggregate of vigor, appropriateness and usefulness, such as the maimed and crippled victim of blunder can afford but a faint idea of. What is more common than a father's decidi...

DOGS IN WAR. [Newspaper Article] — The Sacred Heart Review — 27 April 1889
DOGS IN WAR. The English veterinary surgeon, Dr. Bennett, in a recent lecture, traced the use of the war-dog from the Roman days down to the present time. They were put to service by the Spaniards in America by the Earl of Essex in Ireland, by the English at Tangiers, by the French at Marengo, and by Gen. Skobeleff' in his famous campaign in Asia Minor. In 1885 the Germans decided to instrudt dogs as sentries, and to-day, among the Germans, dogs are trained to be of great service in time of war. Dogs are used as auxiliary sentinels to the out-posts and sentries to cover the rear and flank guards, as scouts on the march, as despatch bearers, as carriers of auxiliary ammunition and as searchers for the killed and wounded after an engagement. The bloodhound is, par excellence, the dog for tracking and for sentry work, but on night marches the retriever and spaniel are only less useful. With all the improvements that have been made in the art of carrying on war, we have not improved upo...
ECONOMY. [Newspaper Article] — The Sacred Heart Review — 27 April 1889
ECONOMY. Be assured that order, frugality, and economy, are the necessary supports of every personal and private virtue. How humble soever these qualities may appear to some, they are, nevertheless, the basis on which liberty, independence and true honesty must rise. He who has the steadiness to arrange his affairs with method and regularity, and to conduct his train of life agreeably to his circumstances, can be master of himself in every situation into which he may be thrown. He is under no necessity to flatter or to be, to stoop to what is mean, or to commit what is criminal. But he who wants that firmness of mind which the observance of order requires, is held in bondage to the world ; he can neither act his part with courage as a man, nor with fidelity as a Christian. From the moment you have allowed yourself to pass the line of economy, and live beyond your fortune, you have entered on the path of danger. Precipices surround you on all sides. Every step wdrich you take may lea...
OLD HICKORY'S ADVICE. [Newspaper Article] — The Sacred Heart Review — 27 April 1889
OLD HICKORY'S ADVICE. " I cannot forbear pointing out to you my dear child," said Gen. Jackson once to a young lady, in whose welfare he felt a deep interest, "the great advantages that will result from a temperate conduct and sweetness of manner to all people and on all occasions. Never forget that you are a gentlewoman and that all your words and actions should make you gentle. I never heard your mother—your dear, good mother—say a harsh or hasty thing to any person in my life. Endeavor to imitate her. I am quick and hasty in my temper, but it is a misfortune which not having been sufficiently restrained in my youth, has caused me inexpressible pain. It has given me more trouble to subdue this impetuosity than anything I ever undertook."— Exchange. m • » Catholics have ample reason to take an equal part with the best of their fellow-citizens in this public demonstration of joy and gratitude, for without the aid of Catholics the independence of the colonies would not have been achi...

CATHOLICS IN THE REVOLUTION. [Newspaper Article] — The Sacred Heart Review — 27 April 1889
CATHOLICS IN THE REVOLUTION. It is only right that Catholics should be conspicuous in the celebration of April 30th, for Catholics, as such, were conspicuous in the founding of the American Republic. Catholic France was the generous and indispensable ally of the Revolutionists. The first Catholic American bishop, Dr. John Carroll, the centenary of whose episcopate also occurs this year, was the trusted envoy of the young United States on a difficult and delicate diplomatic mission. The English government vainly tried bv lavish inducements of money, good quarters and clothing to attract Catholic Americans to her aid. She tried to form a Catholic regiment in Philadelphia about 17S8 with the pioneer priest, Fr. Ferdinand Farmer, as chaplain, to help her crush "the present wanton and unnatural rebellion," as she termed the Revolution in the advertisement for volunteers. Protestant officers were appointed, as under the English law no Catholic could hold a commission. They patiently waite...

WHY WE CALL THE CAT "PUSS." [Newspaper Article] — The Sacred Heart Review — 27 April 1889
WHY WE CALL THE CAT "PUSS." Did you ever think why we call the cat "puss"? A great many years ago the people of Egypt worshipped the cat. They thought the cat was like the moon, because she was more active at night, and because her eyes change just as the moon changes, which is sometimes full and sometimes a bright little crescent, or half moon as we say. Did you ever notice pussy's eyes to see how they change? So these people made an' idol with a cat's head and named it , Pasht, the same name they gave to j the moon, for the word means the face of the moon. That word has been changed to pass or puss, the name which almost every one gives to the cat. Puss and pussy-cat are pet names for kitty everywhere. But few people know that it was given to her thousands of year., ago.
TO DESIGNATE NAILS. [Newspaper Article] — The Sacred Heart Review — 27 April 1889
TO DESIGNATE NAILS. Kails are sold nominally by the thousand ; but, of course, they are not counted. Each size has a given designation by weight, which is supposed to be equivalent to a thousand, if counted. Thus, there are S oz., !12 oz., 16 oz., 2lbs., and so on, each representing a different size. The phrase "ten-pound nails" was first corrupted into " io-p'un' nails," from which it was easy to get "tenpenny." i There is a well-known tale of the great Greek scholar, Dr. Parr, giving his man-servant half a crown to pay , for three tenpenny nails, under the ' impression that they were ten pence each.— Louisville Courier Journal.
THE POPE'S AMUSEMENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Sacred Heart Review — 27 April 1889
THE POPE'S AMUSEMENT. The Pope is a very fine chess player, and one priest in Rome has the especial honor of being his adversary over the board. This priest — Father Giella—has played chess with Leo Pecci for thirty-two years past, says the New York Sun. When Cardinal Pecci was raised to the Papacy, Father Giella, who was then in Florence, got an invitation to proceed to Rome and take up his quarters in the Vatican. Giella is hottempered, but the Pope takes his temper good-naturedly, and is said to often improve the occasion by a homilv on the virtues ot resignation and meekness.
ONE WRONG STEP. [Newspaper Article] — The Sacred Heart Review — 27 April 1889
ONE WRONG STEP. One wrong step has brought many a man to crime, to prison and death ; and many a woman to shame, and sorrow, and destruction. One wrong acquaintance has led many a person to rags and ruin. One wrong bargain has brought many a man to poverty and want. A wrong courtship or wrong marriage has embittered many a joyous life, and broken many a noble heart with anguish and distress. On one single rock a ship may make a fatal wreck. The first pipe, the first drink, the first oath, the first gambling, the first theft—all ! what myriad of wrecks are heaped about such rocks as these. Beware of the first wrong step, and you will have no trouble about the second.
