Quarant Ore at Mount Carmel. ? ^ ? The forty hours' devotion was commenced in the above church, on Friday last, with the usual, ceremonies, carried out in their entire solemnity. The High Altar was very tastefully decorated by the ladies of the Altar Society, and the large attendance of the parishioners during the exposition testified to their practical faith.

THE LAND AND INCOME TAXES. Meeting of the Free Conference. The Free Conference between the Legislative Assembly and the Council in regard to the amendments in the Land and Income Tax Assessment Bill held several meetings last week, and met again on Tuesday afternoon in the back library at Parliament House. At half-past six an adjournment was made for dinner. On reassembling the managers for each Chamber sought separate committee rooms, and considered certain proposals and counter proposals which had been made. Half - an-hour sufficed for the Council representa tives, but it was some time later before the Assembly managers came to a decision. At a quarter past eight the Conference was con tinued until about nine, when the Council managers retired to consider a proposal sub mitted by the representatives of the Assembly. Later on both parties met again, and shortly after it was agreed to adjourn till this after noon at a quarter to five. Speculation has been rife in the lobbies as to t...
BARNATO AND HIS BANK. [Newspaper Article] — The Catholic Press — 30 November 1895
BARNATO AND HIS BANK. ? -^ ? Fkom the latest English papers we find that ' Barnato and his Bank ' is the modern won der of the world. He is the great magician that can convert all he touches into gold. Mr. A. J. Wilson has an article in the October number of the Investors' Revieio, which might be entitled the story of u Barnato and his wonderrul Bank. Mr. Wilson says : — Mr. Barnato has been one of the greatest ' successes ' of South Africa, and has already as mang biographies written about him as the young Emperor of Q-ermany, or Sir Henry Irving. By the law of financial progress, he should be a baronet or a peer soon. This bank of his should do that much for him if all his . previous deeds heroic were uncounted. . . . The 'banks' of Messrs. Robinson and Barnato are nothing other than ' trusts ' of the 'in- dustrial and general ' type, but they have been constructed with a boldness of design which leaves their prototypes far in the shade. That of Mr. Barnato, is to our mind, partic...

FUN AND FROLIC. [Newspaper Article] — The Catholic Press — 30 November 1895
FUN AND FROLIC. We advised our readers some time ago that we would never subject them to the painful ordeal of having to read, anything witty in our pages, that we would not retail the side-splitting jokes without which no ordinary weekly paper is considered complete. We have no wag or funnv person of auv kind on our staff, nor do we intend to procure the valuable services of any such gentleman. Postulating this much, we ask the indulgence of our readers while for once we depart for a little from our policy of gravity and serious philosophy, and offer them a bit of brilliant humour that we apologetically borrow from last Saturday's Telegraph. We would advise, however, any of them that may be suffering from weak heart not to read it. The convulsions of laughter that it must in evitably compel might prove too much for them. Here it is : — 'At one of the Melbourne Wesleyan District Synods a superintendent of a circuit was writing a letter, unconscious for the time of the routine busine...

THE PLENARY SYNOD. SECOND PUBLIC SESSION. A SOLEMN CEEEMONT. On last Sunday, at St. Mary's Cathedral, the Plenary Synod of Australia held its second public session. The attendance, as on the previous Sunday, was wonderful, the large edifice 'being densely packed. The procession passed from the Presbytery, through College street, on to the Cathedral sanctuary^ it being composed of His Eminence the Cardinal, the entire body of Australian Bishops, and the representatives of the religious orders and the delegate priests. 'With the Cardinal were Dr. Carr (Archbishop of Melbourne), Dr. Dunne (Archbishop of Brisbane), Dr. Murphy (Arch bishop of Hobart), Dr. O'Eeilly (Archbishop of Adelaide), Dr. Salvado, O.S.B. (Abbot of New Norcia), Dr. Murray (Bishop of M ait land), Dr. Lanigan (Bishop of Goulburn), Dr. Torreggiani, O.S.F.C.

BLESSING OF THE NEW CHURCH AT ASHFIELD. IMPOSING GATHERING. LARGE BODY OF PRELATES. ADDRESS BY THE CARDINAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Catholic Press — 30 November 1895
BLESSING OF THE NEW CHURCH AT ASHFIELD. IMPOSING GATHERING. LAEGE BODY OF PRELATES. ADDRESS BY THE CARDINAL. The Vincentian Fathers are to be congratulated on the success that attended the ceremony oil opening and. blessing their new church at Ash field on last Sunday. The large number of Prelates present, and the immense crowds of people would almost induce one to believe that it was a Cathedral Church that was being, for the first time, dedicated to the service of the Almighty. The new church is exceedingly handsome, and is a marvel for its light, airy elegant appearance, and for its accomodating facilities. It can seat, though not large in pro portions, very nearly 1000 people. It can boast of being the only church in Australia built in the Roman Corinthian style, and what ever may be said of Gothic architecture as in most fitting harmony with the solemn spirit of religion, yet, for the convenience of the people, and for affording to the entire congregation a full view of the rel...

EXTRAORDINARY COMPUTATION. The End of the World.—Will it be in Three Years ? [Newspaper Article] — The Catholic Press — 30 November 1895
EXTRAORDINARY COMPU TATION. ,; The End of the World— Will it be in A5 Three Years ? ^A. writer m the .English Olmrohnan says:— ^jThe interest that Turkey is occasioning at the jl| present time must plead my excuse for tres \\j\ passing on .your kindness in asking you to give '\j publicity to the following statement of pro .'phetical dates, which I have gathered chiefly IH'rom Mr. J. B. Diinbleby's u New Era at ;,;Hanci;' a pamphlet for which I think the ^Christian public should be greatly indebted. J; We may not agree with everything contained fhin it, but the subject is certainly deeply in | teresting. ' w I ' The Times of the Gentiles are generally ladmitted by prophetic students to consist of |2520 years, according to the vearrday theory, I 1 'a day for a year,' as in Ezek. iv., 6, and Numb, xix., 34. A prophetic year of 360 days (taking ' a day for a year ') is 360 years, which multiplied by 7, makes seven times— i.e. 2520 years. ' Seven times ' are mentioned four times over in ...
PRUNING FOR FRUIT. [Newspaper Article] — The Catholic Press — 30 November 1895
PRUNING FOE FRUIT. It is never wise to let trees bear fruit while still quite young, and should they flower and fruit, then the fruit should be taken off before it gains any size. But it sometimes happens that the reverse of this is the case, and trees which are well grown, and should bear fruit, do not do so. It is then that the skill of the fruitgrower comes into play, and he uses his art, and prunes for fruit. Pruning may be of the branches or of the roots, and both may be done to produce fruit. It must be understood that when a tree is growing fast, it will not rruit. To check the growth is a step towards fruiting, and this is what pruning is for. A tree in rich ground will grow larger and be longer coming into bearing than one in poor soil. This is why, with the same variety of tree, one man may have fruit from his tree long before his neighbour does — the soil differs in richness. There is no use in waiting long after time for a tree to bear, any more than there is to have one...
