Neidermeior, the murderer, the newspapers inform us, after several times attempting to commit suicide refused to the last all religious assist. ands, saying that tie had determinod to dis as he had lived, an atheist, His companions iu crime, Marx and Van Dine, were converted in prison and died after kissing a crucifix in the hands of a Catholic priest. Protestant fnneral services, hnwever, were given to the remains of the dead atheist. We wonder wimt were "the few appropriate remarks" made on that melancholy occasion. The Asso. elated Press gave ti,e following hrief account of the funerals: "OHIO.GO, April 25.In a down- pour of rain the funerals of the late automatic trio of carbarners were held ths morning from the undertaking rooms, where the bodies lay since the exeou tiou. Three thousand morbid people stood about. The services held over all three were, Uatholio in the case of Marx and Vau Dine. and Protestant for Neidermeier. The latter was buried at Oakbridge cemetery, and the terser two at Me. Carmel. The mothers bade pathetic farewells to their offsprings, kissing their pallid faces." CHRISTIANITY AND JAPAN. Will Japan become a Christian na- tion? We doub it. Were Christianity pure and simple, h] all its beauty and attractiveness, presented to the Japar- ese people, it is a foregone conclusion what results the grace of God would accomplish ;but there are deadly oppo. bing influences at worg to prevent this great conquest for the Clmrch. The hioago Evening Post enumerates some of Hmm. Speaking of the visit of the Japanese religmus commission at present in the United States, it says: "A Japanese commission is Jmre studying Christianity, If we can keep LEITHEAD'S PHARMACY DcaIer in pure Drugs First Avenue Mar it away from the lynching districts, from Congress, from most of our larger municipalities, from Wall street ann from a good many of our squaDbling churches its report may not be unfit- vorable. ' ' "THE CHRISTIAN." As annouuced on the advertisement cards about town, "The Christian," the play which is to be presented by tim Seattle College Dramatic Society on the afternoon of Ascension Tlmrs- da,,. May 12th, is no the dramatiza- tion of the novel of Hall Gains, but a dcelfly religious play,written by a Jes- uit father, which has attracted consid- erable attention in other cities where it has appeared, The 'contrast between the true Ghristian and the hero of Hall Gaine's weird story ]s a striking one, with everything in favor of the Jesuit Fa- ther's hero. The play will b(present- ed with every embellishment of cos- tume and music. EASTER OCMMUNIONS Tim expiration of the Easter period is rapidly approaching and t is hoped few used to be reminded that they must comply witl this obligation to be in full communion with the Catho- licChurch. Those wh) belong to either branch of tim Catholic Order of Foresters are obliged to make their Easter communion, or s:ffer expulsion from the Order and the loss of their insurance. The Chnrol being established Pnd orgahized to minister to man's spirit. mtl needs reserves this one right to en- force compliance with the Easter com-] mullion. To neglect this excludes o]w, I i from all rights ot the Church, Ires I burial in its consecrated ground after i death. It is the mark of obedience that makes as true children of this great and holy Catholic Church. Cam- men belief and God's bounteous grace make us one in deepest sentiment, and in the praetme of universal precept we become a universal brotherhood. The administration of public affairs require an election of officers for which vigorous arrangements are be- ing made by the r, wo great parties, and it becomes evident tliat the people mus take a strong hand in the matter if we are to have honest men. We hear of men aspiring to preliminary influence under party leaders who em- ploy intrigue that is disimnor.tble. Trickery is not politics and should be a mark of infamy. Treachery is what manes political corruption, for dishon- esty works its ends in bribery apd spoils. The Protestant Missions of New York are employing novel and no very commendable methods to deceive emigrants from Italy. They are plat. ing in their meetmg placessuch orna- ments and figures as will lead the strangers to believe tlmy are Catholic chapels. The surroundings are reen- forced by liberal gifts of clothing,mon- ey, etc. The result is that many inno- cent people are deceived ,rid led away from the Church. Vigorous measures arc being employed by tim Caiholio authorities to counteract this influence. Those Protestants doubt- less believe "the end justifies the m arts. " Tim peaoable possesion of. undivided affeotmn is not the portion of the Mor. men motlmr,yet she brings her daugh- ters up to haw no higher ambition than to follow in her footsteps. What ideals must fill up the lives of children whose family history is rooted in un- bridled lust. "What is home without a mother?" n m.t have peculiar force among a people where site has all the respondibility of briuging up a portion of some man's herd. The fathers of the present generation doubtless had such bringiug up, and they are only civilized beasts. Tlds is the best proof that eithez homes lack authority or that religiou as imbibed in Utah is more effective, after its kind, than is genera!ly the oas; GREGORY THE GREAT. The long encyclical issued by the Holy Father on'Gregory the Groat has been Imblished in nearly all the Gath. clio papers. It will be read by a few, and of the few a small percentage will make slight effort to promote tim spir- itual conditions which the times de- mand. Vigorous language only reach. es the men of enthusiasm. Convic- tion, aud zeal do nov need such elo. uent exhortations, and the men who are self-satisfied will' only be aroused by circumstances that burn into the spiritual nature and call fcrtil a cry of resistance. The spirit he exemplifies in the ]fie of the Great Gregory is lofty and ide- al. ver be done to create THE CATHOLIC PROGRESS. the enthusiasm of that early day must tend to revive religion. The heathen world and the mighty conquests made by the Church were enough to make saints and heroes. In this degenerate day when the world is in dulgen and material ndnded no great man of the past, nor of the present, claims more than passing attention. We nee'cl'm faith of the early Gbristians to make such men as Gregory possible." We have become so practical and matter of fact that religion does not pass be- yond our assent. WiH tim early Chris. tians it was the great work of life to perfect themselves as servants of God. A saint did not stand alone as he would seem to now. The lines of de- ntarcation between Christian and pa., gan were distinctly marked, while to- day tim man of no religion often has a higher ideal of conduct than the church member. FIRST COMM UNIONS. In every parish classes of children are being prepared for their first com- munion. It is a joyful time for them and their parents. It is-the opportu. nity of a lifetime for the parents to impress the little ones with the deep sense of pleasure they experience in seeing their offspring increasing in heavenly knowledge. There is another tlmught. It is this --While parents wish to impress their ohtldrenwith their happiness it might be well to take tb;reatest p.i22'&o22 livTas to show what the grace of God . does iu the life of a Catholic so that there be no contradiction in the theory and practice of religion. Religion is not o talk about but it is a living principle to live by. If it consecrates the lives of the parents it will also impress the infant mind as sublime, beautiful and inspiring. The power of God working through the grace at lathed to the saeraznents mus have co- operatimt to do its work. It is more than a leaven, but it will shine forth in whming maimers and kind words, in little sorifices and constant devo- tion to home and duty. It bridles the tongue and stops the ear against de- traction and slandeL It frame is a con- tradiction no preparation for first com- munion wilt avail for the eternal wel- fare of its members, as a rule. Inoon- sisteucy is the readiest means the dee. il employs to destroy respect for reh- glen, and It is too often the suirtt tkat dominates the years of childhood. The great publicity given to the en- dowment of th Chair of Secular Hm- tory by the Kniglts of Columbus will have a good effect upon the public. First itwill make the order better known, it will suggest like donatmns from other societies; it will insure the correction of some of the errors now sown oroadcast by irresponsible wri. ters and anti-Catholic societies. Cath- ohc Truth societies will have a source from which to seek compiled informa- tion to use in tim battle of truth against error. Such donations tend to make the university what its name signifies-- comprehensive in its scope. Respect turns toward that which is substantial aud enduring. Thus will the grea'sst American school have a wider sympa- thy among its benefactors, for each that gives has forever an abiding inter- esg in its welfare and its work. Tim dedication of the Apostolic mis- sion house has special significance to every adherent of the Catholic Church. It moans that in tim near fu. ture we too shall have the privilege of inviting our Protestant friends to sit down to reason with us and our teach- ers upon the all-imF.ortant subject ot the means provided for the salvation of our souls. The mission house will be a school for mmsionaries, and forth from its portals will come men of tal- ent and sound iuformation to teach stubborn man his errors and lone him to a knowledge af tim truth that will make him immovable', for in Iron will be the truth, and truth is inwnoible. A PROTESTANT PROPHECV. "The Religious of the Future" as Indi. cated by Present Day Conditions. A New England Journal, the editor of which is Mr. George J. C. Colby, published the following article on "The Religion of the Future." "But, there is one Church that dates from St. Peter, and not Horace Mann, which makes religion an essential in education, and that is the Catholic Church, in which their mothers teach their faith to infants at the breast in their lullaby songs, and whose brother. hoods and priests, Sisterhoods and rams imprint their religion on souls as indelibly as the diamond marks the hardened glass; they ingrain their faith in human hearts when most plas- tic to the touch.

We are no prophet, but i does seem to us that CatbMics, retaining their religious teaching and we our heathen schools, will gaze upon cathedral crosses all over New Eng- l:nd when the meeting houses will be turned into barns. Let them go on teaching their religion to the children and we go on educating our children in sctmols without a recognition of God and without the reading of thc Bible. and they will llant corn and train grapevines on the unknown graves of Plymouth Pilgrims and of the Puri- tans o Massachusetts Bay, and none will dispute their right of possession. We say this without expressing our own hopes or fears, but as Inevitably from the fact that whatsoever a man soweth that shall he also reap." SAINTS OF THE WEEK. May 1. SS. Plfihp attd James AINT PHILIP was born at Beth- -* saida, in Galilee, and was among rle firs of the twelve called to the apostolate. He was, it would seem, a married man, like S, Peter, aud is much commended by St. Chrysostom for not allowing family cares to inter- fore with his study of the Soriptures. Ite must have boon a man of winning manners as the strangers, uentioned in a passage of the gospe, ought through him an introduction o Jesus. In the partition of the world Scythia fell to his lot, and he died at Hierapo- lis, fastened on a cross and overwhehn- ed with stones. St. James the Less, cdled hrother of the Lord on account of close relationship, was a man of rig- id penance and persevering prayer. First bishop of Jerusalem, hc upheld Peter's primacy in the Ghuroh's first Council, and preached sunmission to his authority.. He was cast headlong from the lunnaclo of the temple by the Infuriated Jews and then beaten t9 deati with a club. May 2. St. Ath snasius. T. ATHANASIUS, one of the most commanding fgures in the early history of the Church, was born at Al- exandria in Egypt, about 296. He became sueoesisvely deacon, priest attd oishop in hs native city, and then his troubles began. At the Council of Nice, guided by the instinct he had for the detention of heresy, he lifted iris voice against the Arians and secur- e0 their utter condemnation. These Arlans denied the divinity of Christ and pursued their opponents with im placable hatred. The creed composed by St. Athanasius and bearing his name, was aimed at Heir errors. It is a masterpiece of clearness,piety and sublimity. Tim history of S Athan. asius as a bishop isa long record of alumny, exile, weary journeys, hard- ships and persecution. To escape death, he was once forced to hide for five whole years in an unused well. At another time he had to lie conceal edfor four months in his father's tomb May 3. Finding of the Holy Cross.

PIUS was born at Bosco in Italy 1504, and entered the Order of Preachers at the early age of fourteen. Here he soon distinguished himself by his holiness and love of study. He taught philosophy and theology with marked success, and by his preaching saved whole cities from Imresy. He enjoyed the favor of his two predeces- sors in the Pontificate, Paul IV and Plus IV. The formermade him first a bishop and then a cardinal. The latter employed his splendid services in d.fli- cult affairs of diplomacy. On the death of Pope Plus IV, St. Charles Borromeo urged the Dominican's elec- tion and secured a glorious era to the Gimroh. During sis reign the Turks wore driven out of Europe and ceased to be a menace to civilization. He pubiisbed the decrees of Hm Council of Trent and took strong measures to put them into exeeutmn. Hc dzed in 1572. May 6. St. John Before the Latin Gate HIS is a feast instituted to com- memorate an inoident in the life of tim Beloved Disoiple. St. John was the last of the twelve to die, living sixty-eight years after the death of the Lord. He was enjoying a peaceful old age at Ephesus, engaged in governing tim ohurohes of all Asia, wheu the call came to fulfill his promise to drink th Master's cLaliee.

A curios, she instituted a search on the hih of Calvary for the true cross of Christ. Tlree crosses were found some distance beneath the ground. The inscription ordered by Pilate, was detached from its own cross, and left it doubtfal on which of tim three Christ bad died. At the suggestion of Maearius, bishop or Jerusalonl, all three were applied in turn to a woman sick unto death in the city. The third oared her and removed all uncertainty. May 4. St. Monioa. HfS model hmong women was born in 83 and died 387. The eon- spiouous place she fills in history is in great measure due to the fact that she was the mother of St Augustine. Au- gustine owed his conversion and fame in the Church to her tears and prayers. She was married to a pagan and we may well wonder if that circumstance I Lad any share in St. Augustine's early mistakes. By her devotion and piety she succeeded in maling lmr husband a Christian before sis death. Then began her long struggle 'for her son's scum She followed him from country [ to country, and finally rescued him from sin and ruin. A holy mot!mr's heaoiest cross is a daughter.
