With this issue the various councils of the Young Men's Institute will cease to get copies of the official organ furuished by the Grand Council. As in the past our colunms will be open to a full and free discussion of all Y. M. I. and Catholic matters of general interest. Next Wednesday evening the Knights of Columbus will have the honor of listening to Very Rev. Father Hylebos, V. G., on "Colnmbus." No member can afford to nfiss these monthly liter- ary and mnsical sessions. Herein is the begimfing of Catholic social life in Seattle. Too long have we waited for someone to arrange opportunities for meetiug often and socially. The Catholic Order of Foresters are preparing for a meeting of the local oourtsof the order on October 20. In- vitations have been acknowledged by enough courts to insure a good attend- once. This is a new idea with the Seattle court and will result in much good to the order. The committee having this in eharge is composed of Mr. Andrew Weber, Mr. M. ft. Nist and Mr. 5. C. Ford. The fraternal spirit is surely getting hold of the peo- ple and is bouud to manifest itself for the general good of not only" members but of the whole eommmfity. On the occasion of this meeting there will be some initiations. No pains will be spared by the home court to make a good showing to our visitors. Every member is urged to get himself ready to be present. Those who sel- dom attend meetings are the ones who gradually drop behind aud allow thcir insurance to lapse. Wives and bene- ficiaries should take a lively interest in encouraging their husbands to at- tend regularly and keel) up their pay- ments. Perseverance is the great vir- tue iu insurance of any kind. It is valueless to "have been insured," while it is the best security to BE in- sured. MEMORIES OF THE SITXH GRAND COUNCIL.

The total membership at present is 108 and the affairs of the organization are Ill a prosperous condition. Most of the members have served in Cuba, Por- to Rico and the Philippines.

(Continued from Page One.) fear of meu iu the desire to be their very servant. Francis, brought up to believe tha the goods of his father were his and being accustomed to use them magnifi- cently for his equals, gave of them as magnificently for his poor. What were silks and velvets and cloth of gold compared to the satisfaction of follow- ing the precepts of divine living? Let priceless stuffs go for almost nothing, that the naked should be clothed! Bernardone was irritated beyond en- durance. HiM son was eccentric. The- ories of self-sacirfice were all well enough for i)eople who were not in businens, and Franeis could afford to amuse himself with them if he liked In fact there was nothing within rea- son, as he often said to 3iadoima Pica that his son could lint afford to do. But to make 1)ad bargains, to trade velvets and even a good horse for al- most nothing in tile impulse of alms- giving was more that he could bear. The breach between the father and son grew. To be splendid while others suffered; to shower gifts on a dear son and deny them to God's poor; to have munificence for those friends who had mucll and so little for poor neighbors, our brothers the lepers, our sisters the lowest of the ear th! Francis was puz- zled by the new aspect of things in this world. Gleams of his Mission. A petty war broke out between As- sist and Perugia, and Francis joined the Assiuians. He was taken prisoner, and he astounded his cmnpanions with his gayety. Why'? Some strange power was working in his heart. Thn sorrows of the poor, the afflictions of the weak oppressed him, but lie dimly saw himself as the lmaler. "Some day," he said, "the world will ac- claim me." In his youth lie had loved to make a good figure in the world; his companions knew it, and be an- swered them gayly, not knowing that gleams of the light of his mission were upon Its path. Walter de Brienne asked him to fight for the pope against the Germans. Enthusiastically he went, appareled magnificently. But whenXhe saw a poor knight, tattered and miserable, he forced his gorgeous clothes upon him. "Thou eanst choose between the'slave and the Master," a voice said to him. "Why, then, choose the slave?" Not by wealth nor by war nor by intellect nor by temporal power had the world been saved. There was on- ly one Master. He had not been rich or warlike or proud Love, then, meant to this reader of the Bible the giving up of all possessions. Poet of the People. Let us observe that St. Francis did not forbid to his followers the enjoy- ment of tile beauty.of the world. He was a poet, the first Italian poet to sing in file vernacular of the people. He loved the people ; to die for them would have been easy, but to live for them was harder. They must see him even PHOTOS ENLARGED IN CRAYON, PASTEL, OIL AND WATER COLOR.

Seattle, Wash. poorer than riley; they must be taught to love all creatures to know the sun as their brother tim moon as their sis- ter. They u'eated God's creatures the animals brutally. To this he opposed his exalnple of sweetness and ldudness evcn to the smallest bird. The Budd- hist wouhl not kill tile aninnfls but he did not love tlmm; Francis would sing of the living brol;herhood of the crea- tion and he did it iu his famous "Song of the Creatures." The poor should learn also to be content with little things to be grateful for tile blue sky tile simple herbs fair to look at and swett for their simple salads. The rich had their palaces and their glow- ing pictures 1)ut the l)oor had the tem- ple of God with our gentle sister the water to lave them tenderly to queueh their thirst and the line pictures made for them by their brother, the'sun. The simple life, the life of poverty, oouhl only be made beautiful by love of the " Creator and Itis creatures. There were those in this decaying Italy who did not love little children who did not look on them as a blessing who acted as if they were a. budren. At Christmas Francis with great pa- tience, fashioned ligures of the httle Cln'i,t, of the adoring ox and the ass, of the humble slleplmrds and the wor- shil)piug Idngs. These were for tile children; the stabh had boon the Iirst Christian oh'arch and here it was tor the children. It was St. Francis a child at heart who made the coming of the Christmas time the birthday, the twelfth night, the season of the chil- dren. Francis Second Birth. But this was after he had chosen to bitt.er and the better part through love. The war iu is heart made him ill after he came back. He was no longer Fnmeis of the merry cheek and tile gay voice. The spirit of love was consuming the old Francis; the new one was about to live. Beruardone, augered by is grits to the poor brought him before he mag- istrates. Francis appealed to the bish- op. Why should his figher regret to help the little ones of Christ? If h must choose between an earthly father, whose clotles he wore, and' the com- mands of a heavenly father, to whom his'soul belonged, he would choose then and here. Before the wondering crowd, who had come to look on him as a foolhe, the ones beloved and courted of all the rich youths of As- sist-cast off the garments that be- longed to his father. Let the gold and the lands of his father go; ll) gave tllem up willingly, to the, amaze- ment of all about him. "No,he would be no longer the son of Bernardone bowed by earthly cares; he had only one father, the father of the poor in heaven." Ahuost naked he stood poor for the sake of the poor, as when; he came into the world. A peasant's frock, coarse, rough was thrown over him; he caught up a piece of rope,and tied it about him. He dipped his hand iu mortar and traced a cross on his breast. Became a Pauper. Francis the rich, the acclaimed, the heir of luxm'y, was Francis the pau- per, with no place in which to lay his head. In all Italy, there was not such another man--none willing to be poor for love of the poor. The motives that guided him had been lost sight of by his countrymen. Even his father did not understand them. The tem- ple was iu ruins. If the Lord would not build it through his servants who could? ' So to the astonishment of his world Francis began the building foL lowing the scriptural injunction of his Lord. By the example of Francis the in- dolent clergymen forced themselves to activity. Abuses of credulity were corrected. A desire for love andpeace grew among the eitizens who hated one another. Pharisees loving the forms of religion, but hating the spirit of Clrist, threw aside their rich robes, and became with Francis oxamphs of ove, siml)lioity and cheerfulness to the people, who learned that theworld was not all dark and hopeless because they were poor. And the love of na- ture, of sweet, pure, homelike song, of the sanctity of child life, and tender- ness of all creatures awoke again in Europe.
