WHY STAY PALE.
A pity to sec pale girls stay
pale and dull when it is so easy
to get Scott's Emulsion.
One of the best things
Scott's Emulsion does is to
give rich blood to pale girls.
The result of regular doses
of Scott's Emulsion is an in

111111191100 of fraternal societies on the
civilization and proRross of the coun
try, and their right, because of their
power for good, to be styled "Tho Filth
lie first explained that there nro nuw
four recognized estates the church,
law. medicine and thu press, and that
rivalry among various Institutions is
now extant for the honor of being
known as the fifth estate.
He claimed that fraternal societies
should bo accorded this distinction, and
elaborated on four reasons to support
The llrst reason was their Immense
membership. In the United Stales
alone, he said, fraternal societies have
u membership of 5,000,000. These so
tiuties have contributed for cnobllng
pin poses, In tho main, tho enormous
sum of $1,000,000,000. Last year their
lonlrlbutlons amounted to $50,000,000.
Secondly, he wont on to explain, fra
ternal societies are a power for good in
t licit- being the real school of elocution
and oratory. The old time debating
"-ticieiy has gone. In Its place has
tome the lodge meeting. There are
tens of thousands of lodges in this
country daily leaching youns men how
to think on their feet and how to in
telliijently and impressively tell what
they think. The lodge room, the judge
declaied, Is the nurseiy of oratory.
A third reason Is found in the fact
that -these stcietle invariably foster
tho great virtues. The principles an
nounced and preached by these socle
ties, the judge declared, is a loave-n
Unit tan not but work groat good 10
They Teach Loynlty.
Ills fourth reason, he declared, was
that they teach loyally to the1 govern
ment. Patriotism is a basic principle
of their constitutions. As long as the
fraternal societies of the United States
exist, said ho, there need be no worry
about the safety of the etmntrj".

IMMENSE CONGREGATION PRES
Week for tho Women Closed in tho
Afternoon with n Renewal" of Bap
tismal Vows Services for the Men
Beg-nn Last Night Eloquent Ser
mon by Father Nobert on the Folly
of Putting off Conversion, from
Day to Day Services During
The mission for the women of the
Cathedral parish was closed with
special services yesterday nrternoon
and the mission Tor the men Was op
ened last night under most auspicious
circumstances. Uoth services were at
tended by tremendously largo congic
gatlons. A conservative estimate ot the num
ber of women present In the Cathedral
yesterday afternoon Is 2,500 and 1,300
others who were unable to obtain en
trance at nil completely tilled tho large
chapel in the basement of St. Thomas'
Tho Hunt sermon in the C.ithedtal
was preached by Father Oregorj, who
urged upon his listeners tho necessity
of perseverance In tho carrying out of
tho good resolutions made during the
mission. Under his guidance the vast
congregation arose and made a renew
al of their baptismal vows In chorus,
making public profession of their faith
In Jesus Christ.
The Men's Mission.
The Cathedral was packed to the
doors last night with men and It was
necessary lo accommodate the over
How In the basement of the college.
After the lecltatlon of tlio rosary
Father Norbert ascended the pulpit
and announced that the mission masses
during the coming week will be held
at 5 and S o'clock every morning. He
urged uvery man In tho parish to make
It a point to attend one of theso masses
every day and listen lo the helpful in
structions which will be given during
the celebration. They services nightly
will begin piomplly at 7:30 o'clock, he
Father Norbert preached an elabor
ate sermon in which ho impressed upon
tho minds of his hearers with telling
elTeet the folly of putting off conver
sion from day to day.
He declared, in beginning his sermon
that God has nothing more at heart
than man's eternal salvation. Man's
salvation rests laigely with himself
Tho Lord, himself, has declared that
many are called bin few are chosen.
Father Norbert asked why so many
men's souls are losi when all that Clod
does to enable them to bo saved is
taken into consideration.
They Are Deluded.
"It is betause," said ho, "that after
the loominlsstou of sin men permit
themselves to be deluded by the crafty
suggestion of the evil one that thoio
is no danger in living in sin. It is tills
belief that there is no danger on tho
very brink of perdition that lias bd
to tlio eternal ruin of countless souls."
He spoke of the great uncertainty of
life and said that it scented almost in
credible how any sano man would dine
to live In sin for a single hour. Ho
traced the relationship between sin and
death and declared that tho latter fol
lows the former as sure as the night
the day nnd the frost tho cold. Sin,
he saltl, gnaws at the very roots of ihe
tree of life and its punishment is al
Too many men, he said, labor under
the delusion that only those who die
suddenly die unprepared. Herod did
not die suddenly, ho said, but he died
unprepared, as did also tlio unrepent
ant thief who died lingeringly on the
cross beside Christ. He cried out
against what ho termed "the mad
folly and the tenible presumption"
of putting off from day to day the ac
ceptance of the salvation offered lo
every man bj' God.
God, he said, does not foi eo muii to
save their souls. He does not force
Ills divine grace or Ills divine friend
ship upon them and if a man chooses
to Ignore! and Insult Him He will allow
him to go his own way.
Conversion, ho declared, means a
complete change of the moral nature
and a haired of sin. from the depths of
the heart. Il means, he said, a com
plete and thorough change of heart.
"If you have not the courage to pull
up the tender sapling now," he said,
"litiw will you be able to root up tho
tree, if you are at raid of the barking
puppy, how will j on be ablo to wage
with the savage beasts when you have
become the slave of your passions'.'"
Pather Nobert closed with an earnest
prayer at the foot of the largo crucltix
which has been erected In the s.tnetu
ar.v lor the assistance of tho Saviour
In loading' tho men of the parish during
the coming week to throw off tho old
