This is true of Catholic lay organizations in other parts of tho diocese.

This is a step in the right direc- sUppositlon Terifled, the advice is good. Money laid away underthe^heittL-JiMjood neither for king nor country.

Wejdo'fipt really make that a conclusion, but wo act ait though it were a proposi- tion that would bo approved by Sabetti-Barrett or Tanqueray. We are not lasy, although wo find It.im- posslble to get up eairly, and *e a>e nbt actually dls- We think, even wh^en; like some foreign na- tlohs, we defer payment on our just debts. A good ng-hiB^eiolution for the New Year would be to pay the buicher and the baker forthwith, not forgetting the doctor, the dentist, the school, and the grocer.
