ingSocial Events Notes and Per
sonals. Ilcv. Falhei' Fa gun, oC Great Demi,
'delivered a very impressive sermon ut
Kt. Patrick's Cuthollc church last even
ing to tho members of St. Patrick's
Holy Name society, and many others
who were in attendance at the services.
The object ot the society Is to pre
vent and discourage in every way pos
sible the talcing of the name of tho
Lord Jesus Christ in vain, and the use
of vulgar and obscene talk In general,
nnd along this line Father Fugan spoke
with much feeling and Imnresslveness.
.Among other things, he said:
"In your socioty do not forget to Im
press the mercy ot Jesus on your mem
bers. To the disciples He fcald, 'Tby
sins are forgiven, go and sin no more,'
nnd be sends the same message to those
who believe and trust In him today.
"The name of Jesus, the founder of
lellglon, was destined by God to save
souls, and Ills mime should be greeted
everywhere with reverence and respect.
You always address your friends In
everyday life with respect, but this can
not be said to be true in addressing
Christ, whoso name is so often taken in
"When you swear you take the name
of Jesus In vain, but I ask you if you
over call on Him to witness your other
deeds. His name should always be
treated with veneration and resDecl.
lint how often do you find that It Is
almost impossible to leave your home
without listening to blasphemy?
"God pity tho blasphemer. Those who
uannot regale their children with any
thing better than blasphemy are to be
pitied. If there is one more sin more
despicable than blasphemy, I do not
know what it Is. It is a vulgar habit,
and if you indulge in it you cannot ex
pect to enjoy the respect and esteem of
As an illustration of how the habit ot
Mvearing- grows on a person, the
speaker told ot a young man who was
injuied in a railroad wreck, and had to
undergo tho effects of ether in order
that an operation might be performed.

The police havo received Information
during the past week that two fellows
have been attempting to blackmail the
keepers of certain disorderly hou.ses in

One of the pair visited a certain place
and had an Interview with the propri
etress, in which he told her that he
represented the police authorities, who
were going to havo tho house raided
tho following night unless $10 was paid
over. The woman was told to send tho
money to a hotel, which was named,
and that If she did so all would go well.
The money was not sent, nnd the fol
lowing night the man came back, ac
companied by a companion. They stated
that they had authority for the raiding
of the place and would proceed at onco
to arrest everybody inside, if the $10
was not immediately forthcoming. The
proprietress became suspicious and rang
for a messenger boy, saying she would
send him up to city hall to see If tho

Something About Trimmings
There is no longer any doubt about trimmings for
this spring season. The graceful curves and unique
designs of the spring styles make them harmonize hand
somely on the "clingy" materials for gowns. Most
prominent probably are the Gallaon, Medallion, Serpent
ine and Applique designs. They are so constructed that
you can separate them. This is but a hint about our
large stock of trimmings. A few more ideas selected at
random in the Laces are Colored Appliques, in black and
white, "Olio," Two-Toned and Persian Effects in the
colors. No better display in this city.
