Do Cntliollc Blrls ilresi mmlctly?
Tho answer, nccorttlne to Dr. Austin
Yv.Malley, tlvpcntli on what part of Africa
iyoti come from.
I Doctor O'Mnlley, physician, profenior nml
,wrltcr, who lives nt 2228 South Ilroad
'itroot, believes that wo are IlvInK In nn
WpnlllnRly decadent atfo nnd that tho ilccn
ilotico Is spreadlnR no rapidly that If some
'body doesn't do poniothlng ilsht nulclt,
Bomcthine la colnp to liappen.
1 In 11 BCnthlnff article In 'America," u
fiJcstilt publication, ho Hays the Catbollcs,
Good Catholic that ho Is. for tlielr part in
brlmclnc about this decadence. Mixed
marriage nnd fashions are chiefly fCBiioii"
slblo. That 1'iotestant O'Liiail.ia and Mc
Evoys nnd o'Donnells exist In this land, ho
'declared, shows which way tho wind blows.
In nn Interview at his home. Doctor
'O'Mallcy expatiated on bis article, t.01110 of
tho mnterlal for which, particularly that
part about Catholic Bills dressing immod
estly, wfti Kleuneci m i-iiiinueipnia.
"Our Church," be said indignantly. "Is
losing thousands of lur people throiiKh
mixed marriages. It is no tmusuat tiling
to taWo un a naner and read of tho innr-
rlago of Hiss Gladjst Murphy to Mr. Fran
cis Durlio In a Uapttst or Presbyterian
church by tho Ilov. Peter Doyle, and
'every 0110 In the group from parson to
flower-girl had grandmothers who took
their beads to bed with them.
"Our peoplo lire pulled down Into disho
nor nlso," be continued, "by tho rapid de
cadenco of the American public conscience.
Walk nlcW Chestnut street today and you
can see Indecent pictures on tho boardings
that twenty yenrs ago would havo put some
0110 behind tho bars. In tho theatres you
enn Beo 'actorlncs' that lit former times
would havo been wrapped In horse blankets
bv tho police and carried uway in tho patrol
wagons. Vnclcan plays aro presented,
brazen dames flop about In what aro called
esthetic dances, university professors
preach ethical slush, -without protest, yet 11
generation ngo these crimes would open
'the doors of tho penitentiary. The worst'
quality of yds paganism is that it has be
come n. matter of course.
"Our women strut about the streets
wrapped lit nothing much but powder, and
rogue Even grandmothers vrnddlo about.
Corinthian columns renrcd on French heels,
clad llko an Irish sergeant In a Highland
jcglmont, simpering, mincing, ogling, until
the devil's faco Is parboiled with tho tears
of his laughter.
"Tho other day I was passing a Cuthollo
school ono of our most fashionable. A
number of rflrls wore coming out. Thcro
was n basement window near tho gate
.-which made an effectual mirror, nnd every
blessed damsel that appeared took n powder
,iuff from her reticule, or whatever you call
tholr ammunition boxes, struck her budding
nose Into It. and pattered off down the street
looking like the white rabbit In a Christ
mas pantomlno. Powder puffs are not crim
inal, but were these girls dressed modestly?'
Doctor O'Malley paused and (united and
consulted hla article.
"Well, as I have written. It depends on
what part of Africa you como from."
But Doctor O'Malley would go no further.
Ho would not bo specific In regard to the
details or lack of details which made tho
dress of tho girls from the Cathollo school
Immodest. He saw them and that wag
enough for him. Doctor O'Malley has
taught at Fordham, Georgetown and tho
, University of Notre Dame.
Old Man, Who Killed Poorhouse
Orderly, Says Ho I3 Afraid of
An old man alts behind prison barB day
after day In Camden although he has been
decreed by the law 0. pie man. He alts
there, friendless and penniless, In the Cam
den County jail, because he Is afraid to
step from tho security of hla cell out Into
the maelstrom of Ufa again. He says so
Christmas Day, when all the-, world was
(oyful, law tho old man 811110? silent be
ilnd the bars, and the new year sees him
11 the same place.
Thomas Green, for that Is his name, one
moment last April forgot the burden of
his evenay-slx years and In a At of anger
killed James McDermltt, an orderly. In the
poorhouse at Blackwood, N. J. Ever Blnce
the time that Green had entered the home,
McDermltt, other Inmates said, took an
especial delight In bullylnff him, a practice
that was continued until the orderly was
beaten to death by Green In a fight.
Green, Btunned at what ha had done, waa
arrested and put on trial. He was freed
by the jury' when It was testified that he
acted In self defense. But now he wantB
to. be tried over again and convicted, so
he can remain in Jair.
"I don't want to leave," he said. "I have
no place to go. I am friendless and penni
less and I don't see how I can get back to
Blackwood again. I am afraid to go out
Into the world because I am too old to bat
tle with It, My cell la snug and besides I
like to play checkers with myself."
