It has hardly been three years since the "Dream of Gerontius" @as first pro- duocd in England. Since then it has appeared with eclat all over Europe and has met with the greatest ap- plause m New York and Chicago. Mr. Elgar is a devout Catholic. A critic says of his work: "I is seldom that any new musical production evokes suol entlmsiastic praise as ires greeted the first perfor: ances in this country of Dr. flward Elgar's sacred cantata, "ie Dream of Gerontius." This clmal work, Pin the opinion of the ,cw York Com- mercial Adverjm%r, is " of such splen- did beau}r%mt one will not go astray nlJdfing it among the very great achievements in modern music. Cer- tainly, as regards the land of its birth, it cau be considered as nothing less than epocil-making." And Mr. W. J. Henderson, the musical critic of the New York Sun, declares, in even more glowing terms, that "no other English master has given us such a glorious work of this type. Not since Mendels. sohn's 'Elijah' has England been the birthplace of such a fsacred musical drama." The New York Times says ': " f the first performance of Mr. Elgar's oratorio in New York: "The occasion was recognized as a remarkable one, full cf significance. For it was the first real disclosure that we have trod of the true stature and power of a man who Las suddenly risen by virtue of this very work to a com- manding position as one cf the fore- most composers of the day. Cardinal Newmm:'s poem, 'The Dream of Ge- rontius' is a description in verse of the subjective experience in death of a true believer, and the disposition of his soul after death, according to the doctrines of the Roman Catholic Church, by the mimstering agents of the Almighty's will. [t is a picture of the mysteries|that lie hidden across the portals of the tomb. Its musical setting needs exceptional qualities on the part of tim composer,among which may be reckoned a complete intellect- ual and emotional sympathy with the tenaeney of tim poem, its mystical suggest!veuoss, and [its religious ="sig- nificance. This Dr..Eigar has, in vir- tue cf his standing as a devout Roman- ist; and the fact s everywhere evi- dent in his music. It is written with conviction. It is furthermore clear that the conventional formulas of era- In the "General Bib- liography" at the end of the book we were amazed not to find in the grea array of historical works given any mention whatever of Bossuet's Dis- course on Universal History. And in fact the great Catholic historians, one and all, with very few exceptions, are conspicuous by their absence. We consider this au irreparable de- fect in a work otherwise fairly done. The study of history, independently of a guiding principle, o give unity and moaning to the great drama of world- events as they pass gown the centu- ries, we hold to be a useless task, as uninteresting as unsmentific. Peter Fredet, the author of the Ancient His- tory, which has guided successfully the young Catholic mind here in the United States, for so many years through the study oi tile past, follow- ing Bossuet's keynote for tim interpre- tation of history, says: "In the history of ttmse extraordi- nary events, we see men always under the ruling iland of their Maker, crea- ted by his word, preserved by his goodness, governed by his wisdom, punished by his justice, delivered by hismercy, and constantly subject o his power." Of course such words as these would not do to put mtc the introduction of a text book of hstory for the modern non-religious class room, but_'may the grace of God and their commou sense long preserve in the hands of the pro- fessors of history in our Catholic schools the beloved pages of wisdom of dear old Peter Frc0et. We might mention as a second glaring defect of Mr. Wolfson's work the fact that the author forgets to mention the "Bizth of Jesus Christ" and gives some re- markable reasons for the spread of Christianity in those "ancient days" of his (34 A.D.324A. D.) He says: "The Roman empire, as it thou ex- isted, offered several conditions which made the propagation of tle new reli- gion easy." This is verily an astound. ing propositio n. We can certainly credit Mr. Wolfson with at least one truly new idea in his "Essentials of Ancient History." We were half in- clired to take the word "easy" for a /pinter's error. The book stands self- condemned in the eyes of educated Catholics. Young man, if you would have a wonking knowledge of the evils that must be met and controlled during your lifetime you will read very care- fully the article by Cardinal GibDons on the first page of this caper. To live passively is the gr6atest evil that can befall you as a citizen and a Cath- olic. He that will not hear :the Church, let him be to thee as a heathen and a publican: The Church says you shall receive Holy Communion during the Easter period. Hear the Church and obey her, Alfred Dreyfus is demanding a re- hearing of his case after five years of condemnation. Considering the spirit of injustice prevailing in France at present even if he is guilty he should be exonerated as an act of consistency. The religious orders have been made tim scapegoat, then let Dreyfus be the Barabbas of today. More American sailors were killed by the recent explosion of a gun on tim Battleship Iowa than during the naval engagements of the Spauish American war. The imitation is usu- ally more dangerous then the real thing. Bremerton is undecided whether the people or the council run that burro Tim councilmen arc evidently good politicians as they are excellent at breaking promises. Having gained considerable notori- ety during her sojourn with the ban- dits in the Balkan mountains a year ago, Miss Ellen Stone, the missionary, is now going to place herself on exhi- bition. Prize fighters, bridge jumpers and globe trotters usually end up on the stage or in the side show. PROTESTANTISM TRIES THE SOULS OF HONEST MEN. We so frequently find such extreme nd exasperating restraints put upon Protestant ministers in some particu- lars, and sucl unwarranted freedom accorded them m other particulars that we begin to be of the opinion that an honest man cannot eonsistently be a Protestant minister. By all tile precedents of origin and tradition a Protestant is bound to no superior au- thority m matters of doctrine, but it seems that in matters of recreation and observation hc has no choice or con- viction that does not endanger his peace. From Syracuse, I7. Y. comes the in formation that Rev. Mr. C.B. Car- lisle is to be ousted from the pulpit of the Jordan Pesbyterian church because he tlas opinions of his own out- side tim pulpit. The telegram says: "Mr. Carlisle was an army chaplain during the war in Cuba and in the Philippines. One of the statements to wMch the clergy take exception is that there is no room for Protestant missionaries in the Philippines." Another bold and bad saying of this honest divine is that men do not at- tend ehurch because of the kind of preaching that they are treated to. Even worse and likely to bring dis- grace and loss of position was the un- pardonable conduct of Rt. Roy. Wil- liam H. Moreland, Episcopal bishop of Sacramento,Gal. The bishop is ac- cused of having frivolously played tennis. Nine reverend gentlemen are to make due inquiry and if lie is found to have done so he is to be regularly tried by a court of bishops. Poor Bishop Moreland. From lack of exercise a man must become a hyp- oclmndriac and a dyspeptic, he must have aclfiug head and trembling limbs to be truly divine in his ministrations. He must not have s sound mind in a sound and healtty body. A man nmy deny the divinity of Christ and dispute the inspiration of the Scriptures, but he must not by word or act scandalize his fellow churchnmn by being natural and hon- est. Yet, "truth will nmke you free." Only deception makes men slaves. Truth is Catholic. True free- dom is found in Cadmlicity only. SUNRISE ON PUGET SOUND. By D, F. McDonald, From a deep refreshing sleep, on the mountain side, I had jus awak- ened. Dreamily 1 beheld the advanc- ing dawn roll night's black trusts back across the wooded hills that stretched out dimly below me, until they were lost in the dark scowl of the retreating foe. Crimson and gold tints were reflected on the brightening East as I rolled up my blankets, and built my fire. Enjoy- ing the glow produced by the vigoruos application of a towel, after a shower bath in a cold mountain torrent, I drew in deep breaths of the vitalized mountain air;and sat me down vo ad- mire the beautiful ceremony that her- alds the advent of the summer morn- ing on Puget Sound. Gradually the twinkling stars grew dim,and feeble,and stole away. Slow- ly the fantastic forms around me were robbed of their vague strangeness, and shaped into ordinary trees, rocks and stumps, by the pale. colorless light that floated out from banks of fire piling up in the mighty distancs beyond, the snow-capped peas. Birds sang, and mountain streams.babbled forth their greeting to the sheets of old gold and sun-burnished clouds, that arranged themselves in the vast ultra-marine blue of the East, to receive the Great Orb of day. Atendcd by all the splendor of morning he moved iu sol- emn grandeur across the threshold of the world,and diffused his betlediction on all. Oh l children of men, let not the beauties that scintillate beneath tle gay chandelier tempt you to miss his morning greet'rag; for visions that are grandly fair, and health that is per- feet,are the blessings which he then be- stows. After a hearty meal, and the en- chanting effect of the morning, I gaily shouldered my pack and sang as I strolled forth,alone with beautiful na- ture in her mountain home. A SHORT SERMON. THE SACRIFICE OF TItE MASS. In the last two instructions we spoke of the Sacrifice of the Mass as the most excellent of all sacrifices, and of the ends for which it is offered. We will say a few words now ou the im- portance of assisting frequently and properly at Mass. When we come to treat of tim Comnmndments ef tlle Church we will speak of the obliga- tion of hearing Mass ou Sunday and holydays. Some of the faithful can- not imar Mass daily; others can. To this latter Mass we address ourselves. Brethren, religion has nothing wtfieh does more honor to God than the Sac- rifice of the Mass, nottfing more wor- thy oi Him, nothing more holy, noth. lug more useful for the whole world. nothing more agreeable o Jesus Christ. There is nothing at the disposal ot the 3hurch militant as great as the Sacri- fice of the Mass. The Mass is a daily embassy, sent to the Most Holy Trinity, accompanied by a gift of incalculable value, bearing testimony to our sub- mission and dependence, and proclaim- ing God's sovereign dominion and in. finite majesty. The Mass is a daily tribute offered by the Church mill- ant in acknowledgment of God's pew. or, goodness, and infinite perfections. The offering, which is the greatest possible, is offered by heaven and by earth, by all creation, in union with Jesus Christ. It is offered every day, and thereis no nobler work the crea- ture can be engaged in than assisting daily at the mystery of the morning. The Mass is a perfect holocaust of burning love, join which Our Savi r, the God of love, transforms Himself into a Victim and is consumed in hon- or of His Father. He invites us *o join to this holocaust of love, all the love )f which our hearts are capable. H  wishes us to offer in union with Him our bodies ,our souls, our lives, to the Eternal Fatimr, so that the Sac- rifice may be complete and without reserve. This oblation for many is possible every morning. Was ever privilege greater, holier, dearer than that of being able to assist daily? The Mass is an efficacious applica- tion of the merits of Christ, an open- ing of the dvine tr msury whence we draw forth heavenly riches,store them up for our own use, and pay with them abundantly the debts which we have contracted towards God. In the Mass we cau address our petitions to God the Father, through Jesus Christ present upon the altar, as mediator, intercessor, priest, and victim, the same Christ of wlmm the Father said: "This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased." Here we can ob- tain grace, life, health, peace, and ev- ery best gift. The daily Mass opens this divine treasury every morning. Who will absent himself from Mass wtsn he can possibly attend? It is true that you are not command- ed to hear Mass every day by any law, but for the pious soul there are duties springing from the heart's deep well which, Oecause more tender, are not less sacred than the duties of the law. St. Louis, King of France, was cer- tainly the busiest man in his kingdom, yet he found time to hear one or more Masses every day. Thomas More, who shed his blood for the faith, was accustomed o say: "I give the first hour of the day to God, the rest be- longs to my king and to those who seek my advice." Necessity is often pleaded as an ex- cuse for absence fromMass where no real necessity exists. We might rise a little earlier; we might regulate our duties so as to leave ourselves a spare hour in the morning; we might not lose so much time" in.visiting; and at least, during certain seasons of the year, hear Mass daily. Rest assured the half hour spent assisting at Mass would be the most profitable of the day. A special benediction seems to accompany through life those who hear Mass every day. God blessles all their efforts. There is peace m their fam- lies. They lead Smly lives, and die the death of the just. To hear Mass well is of still greater importance than to laear it often. A person accustomed to banish distrac- tions in prayer, who is [familiar with the incidents of the Passion and Death of Our Lord,'and with the ends for which the Mass is offered, can assist at Mass profitably without using a prayer-book. Bossuet once said that he would exchange all his learning for the simple piety of a poor, illiterate woman, who employed her time dur- ing Mass saying her beads; and St. Ligouri approved the practice of an. other pious person who spent all the time at Mass bewailing her sins. Or- dinarily speaking, however, all, both young and old, will find it very advan- tageous to use a prayer book. Tim prayers at Mass fix the attention, they contain the petitions proper to this service, they are instructive as well as devout, and the recital of them makes us publicly participate in the Sacred Liturgy. It will also serve to make as hear Mss more devoutly; to haw some special favor to ask of God ev- ery time we assist at Mass, such as an increase of grace for ourselves, or the conversion of those who are dear to us. % The.
