had projjer care, have been untouched, bui the others have, no' 
only, been robbed but badly damat;ed. This loss of income, 

increased by costs of repair, is a heavy tax on the meairre

French as well as Kn^'lish. aie heinu- I'laced under the dixu-s of 
our co-religionists? This is hein,!,' done euniinuously. Some-

iind tiu'h, b 't in order that oin- doctrine nii.urht be niis-inter-

Someone thouKhL it worth while to pay for the printing of thi.s 
contaminating rubbish, and tn Kt't those who will jrive the time 
to .ud about distributing it. Yet (^atholics, the most of them, 
think it too much to jrive a few dollars yearly towards spreading 
the real, the TRUE word of God. These thinjrs are beinjr done 
eontinually in cities and towns, and the more Catholic the 
more persistent is the distribution. Have we, then, not rea.son

what will be done in the drv?"

how does ihe Catholic Truth Society of Canadii c-ompare with it; 
tifter its years cd' existeiue '.' The eoinparisoii will be- all the 
more marked hy the fact that "The Protestant I'uhiieity 
Leaytuf ' is fornied primarily to oppose the Catholie Truth Su- 
«iety. There ean hf no ilouhi. of that froiii the fullowintr para- 
uiaph in a leaflet sent out from Toiont.i.

There is no more important work to he done in Canada 
?iy Protestants than to counteratt this movement on the 
;)art of the Roman Catholics". 

There is nothing for us to be ashamed of in that. On the 
vnnlrary. it should be the cause of j-iTat encourani'ment to us to 
■;nuw that in si)ite of the difficulties of the i)asi years, ^ood wdik 
has been do!ie, and the influence of the Society has made it«elf 
felt. 

Hut what of the future? .Are \vc to concede our position to 
■thers because we have not a membership of several thousand 
-T because we are not as wealthy as our opponents. Surley not! 
Sl'RKI.V .\()T: When our Bishops have pleaded with us: when 
"Ui- i)astors have urjred us: and when the Holy Father himself 
has crieil (uk to us. to take <.ur i)laces in the lay apostolate. Let

Is it not tiue that the weapons which the Church has unceasinc--

-■.ot this indeed "a standint;- shame"? 

Those who have interested themselves in this work know 
^veII the reward it brings with it. It has been beuun and not 
ti little has been achieveil. but nothing compared with the j^^ood
