I once heard a converted Catholic
tell this story: Bridget had been to
confession, and was on her way home
Mary, an antipathy of hers, spied her,
and hurled at her some taunting re
mark. Bridget retorted: "Arrah,
now, te aUy, will ye, for l am in a
state of pace today, but I'll black yer
eye for ye tomorrow!" There you have
the papist style of religion!
Fanaticism, I say again! Let us look
' ' bak a little and how Rome uatd to
proceed In her efforts to tave those
whom the thought to be in error. The
theory was that the error mutt be
driven out in order to tave the soul
And some of the methods resorted to in
difficult cases were certainly oi iginal,
They did it by machinery, so to freak
A recent writer says: "One method
was the squeezing or crushing of the
limbs by means of machinery designed
for that purpose" continuing the pro
cess, of course, till the victim recanted,
thus squeezing the heresy out of him,
very much as the modern clothe -wrlnger
squeezes the water out of a
wet sheet. "Another method was the
Injection Into the body of water, oil or
vinegar" peculiarly papal antidotes
for the poison of error. "Hot pitch
was sometimes applied to particularly
sensitive portions of the body" pre
sumably with the animated intentim
of enabling the patient to Btick fast to
the creed of the mjther church. "A
simple, yet telling, device was to bind
. candles to the fingers (the patient be
& ing first bound in an immovable posl-
tion) and tbea light them. As they
burned gradually away, the flesh of
the fingers was consumed." This wa
the popish method of enlightening
those who were supposed t3 be in the
darkness of error.
Then there was the "Spanish donkey"
an upright prank with a sharpened
.. dge, on which the victim was com
pelled to sit astride, with weights at
tached to his feet to make the applica
tion more forcible, until the tortured
rone was lain to acknowledge that there
is a sharp distinction between heresy
and orthodoxy!
"Again you are tied in a chair, which
is then gradually brought Into proxim
ity to a blazing furnace; and as the
broiling flesh crisps on your bones, the
voice of the inquisitor is in your ear,
exhorting you to confess, to repent, to
speak" thus actually expecting to
"try" heresy out of you, as a skillful
housewife "trios" fat out of a beef's
caul! Again we are told: "If roasting
proven, unsuitable to your cafe, you
were furnished with a roomy pair of
boots, into which boiling water was
poured; and often when the boots were
removed nothing but bare bones were
left behind." Surely, if heresy couldn't
be boiled out of a man, how could you
get it out? Again, you might be seated
in an iron chair with a grove of sharp
spikes for a cushion, enabling you to
reflect with due feeling on the fine
points of the papistical doctrine! Or
you might be stretched on a row of
sharp edged boards, and heavj wheels
rolled over you till every joint iu your
body, as well as In your heretical the-
I ology, was dislocated at the same time.
Or, more effectual still, you might be
submitted to the vigorous embrace of
the "Iron Maiden," which was, in
effect, an iron cloak with sharp spikes
on the inside; in this you would be
screwed up tight, until you acknowl
edged yourself that you had better
return t3 the loving embrace of
mother church, or until your flesh
rotted and dropped into the moat!
We are told that "in the early part of
the seventeenth century a man by the
name of Zachary Druseman was sus
pended by the arms in a torture cham
ber, while screws were applied to his
feet in such a manner as to crush the
bone3. After watching him for awhile,
the judges went out to supper, leaving
him in charge of the executioner.
Druseman Besought the latter 'by the
wounds of Christ' to lot him down If
but for a single moment, but the officer
refused to do so except at the judges'
command. After an hour the judges

imasinaiion is needed to make one
shudder at this story; Satan himself
might hesitate to fill up the gaps of
the narrative." ,
Such was Rome's method of convert
ing heretics, under the theory that the
soul might be saved by a recantation
secured by these means. Protestantism
relies solely on argument, proof, per
suasion, addressed to the reason and the
conscience. Which 1 nki most like
fanaticUm? Let us not flatter ouralves
that such ice ins bave been renounced.
Rome utet tueui still at times, though
more secretly. 'Stmjxr mJhm" (al
ways the tame) is her b.-asl. And
hen Bishop O'Connor writes, "Re
ligious liberty is merely endured until
the opposite cab be carried into effect,"
he forewarns us that all this Is liable to
re '.urn if Rome gel the power. The
fact Is, Romanism i only heathenism
thinly vereertd. We notice In both
the same lust for power, the same gread
of gain, and the fame spirit of fraud
and dec -ption.
ice Hierarchy ltseii, witn Its many
grade of officials, 1 patterned after
Roman paganism, whose head was
called pontiff, as the pope is today.
And now, over in Thibet, the degraded
heathenism of Central A ia is character
ized by a similar hierarchy, having at
It head the Grand Lama, so called
who i only an Asiatic pope.
The pagan priests know how to make
use of their position to extort money
irom ice multitude, xiut Home can
give them point on this line. The
priests would impose heavy penance
for trifling offence, such as fasting
several days in succession, walking
barefoot in the most Inclement weather,
laying aside all comfortable garments
and wearing sackcloth, leaving the!
homes and going on long pilgrimages
to distant shrines, or renouncing society
altogether and entering a monastery,
and then fix their own price for remit
ting the penance, which the victim must
pay (or do the penance) under pain
perdition and money came in streams
The pope looked on with envious eyes
to see his priebts reaping such a golden
harvest, and soon found means of enter
ing the field himself. Perhaps he
thought a lit le competition would help
to regulate prices; at any rate, prices
finally got down to what must cer
tainly be called a very reasonable figure
For the way the popa took to get ahead
of tQe priests was to tell an indulgence
to sin beforehand; and so afterwards
there was no need of buying off a pen
ance from the priest. And the price
got so low at one time that infanticide
cost but eighty ceat-v parricide or
fratricide an evei dollar: witchcraft
was two dollars, and pjlygamy only six
which was cheaper than emigrating
tj Uuh!
Tad theory on which this dogma was
based Is certainly ingenious. Many of
the saints, it was said, had merits far
beyond their own individaal obliga
tions; they had merit dough tj be
saved, and a good bit to tpare. This
surplus merit, or, as they put it, this
supererogatory" merit, together with
the superabundant merit of the Re
deemer, constitutad an Inexhaustible
fund of merit, all under charge of the
pope, who could distribute it around at
will in quantities just sufficient to make
up the deficiencies of his erring flock
provided they could furnish the needful
So the pope had something to sell
after all. The merits of the saints was
the commodity put up for bids, In what
the historian well calls this inconceiv
able barter. And by sending out agents
in different directions to sell on com
mission, a vast territory was laid under
tribute to enrich the papal court at
Rome. Do you say that this is long
past? But how is it now? Look at the
vast properties under the form of
churches, cathedrals, parsonages,
school-houses, convents, and what not,
belonging to the hierarchy all built
by money somehow wrung from the
Ignorant, duped multitude.
Ana wnat maKes ice priests loot so
plump and rubicund, while their flocks
look so ragged and careworn? Why,
there's a fee for about everything a
priest does. His masses are paid for,
his prayers are paid for, his offices in
the various rites necessary to a "good
Catholic," from baby christening to ex
treme unction, are feed and the fee
comes before the office.
Recently a body was brought for
burial to a Catholic church by out-of-town
parties; the priest demanded, in
advance, his fee of twenty dollars. The
friends were not able to raise the money
on the spat, but promised to make it
good, and beggei him to go on with the
service. But he refused to do so till
the money was paid, and retired to his
house, leaving the corpse lying un-
shrived before the altar.
And since the sun crossed the vernal
equinox, a priest's card has been seen,
left at the houses of his flock, on which
he states that for twenty-five cents per
week he wiil say ten masses per day,
and for fifty cents per week he will say
twenty-five masses per day making a
very creditable reduction in the whole
sale rates! Perhaps you call this
Christianity, but it strikes me as being
a good deil more like heathenism.
This likeness to paganism is also
seen In the sham sanctity of their de
votees, supposed to be gained by wear
ing hair shirts, living unwashed in
dirty caverns, eating grass instead of
bread, or standing for years on the top
of high columns; precisely on a par
with the heathen whom our mission
aries describe as walking on shoes with
spikes in their soles, rolling over and
over on the ground for hundreds of
miles, or swinging themselves on hooks
thrust through their bleeding flesh. If
there is anything to choose, it is not on
the side of the Romanist.
Their depreciation of marriage and
implied contempt for woman U heathen
Um. Their silly legends about the
talnU and the Virgin are healhenUh
Their empty rite and core monies and
ivpelilioua prayer court to J off on their
beads are aped from the pagan, who
bad their rottarie before ppe wtre
born, and whose prayer c insisted often
in saying over and over, hour afksr
hour, the name ot some imaginary
deity; till at la.t, in Thibet, thl idea
of efficacy through repetition led to the
invention of the prayer wheel which
wa a wheel on which a prayer
written, and every tlnio It revolved
bringing the word on the upper side,
counted as a separate prayer. Some
time they turned it by hand, but some
time they hitched it to a small mill
wheel, and tnu actually prayed by
It i a wonder that some of the
smart jr papist bave not ere thl eon
trived a machine for praying by steam,
or an electric motor. They would, I
opine, had not popery addled their
brains a well a darkened their spirit
ual perceptions. If it had not done
both, Low could they have failed to
understand and heed the Saviour' In-
junction: "And ye, when ye pray, use
not vain repetitions as the heathen do,
for they think they shall be heard for
their much speaking."

hierarchy, already referred to, com

But inasmuch as it has grown with

In the matter of intelligence the con

Catholic faith, Protestants and all!
The parochial schools which they
set up are everywhere Inferior. The
teacher are incompetent, and so much
time is wasted in mumbling the cate
chism and learning pravers to the
Virgin that no thorough instruction
can be given in the sciences. The re
sult of their course is to mako Ignorant
bigots instead of Intelligent scholars.
Congressman Linton sayc "For
more than a century the mission In-
ians have been under Jesuit control,
education and influence, and t.Mlay are
as incapable of self-support, as citizens
of our country, as babis." Such is the
result of the Romish handling of the
ntellect. While in Protestant Ger
many, England and America the sys
tems of education existing are the very
best in the world. Which, then, shows
most signs of intellectual desay, Roman
ism or Protestantism?
But it is when we compare the moral
standards oi tne two peoples that the
most stunning facts come to the surface.
Protestantism has always been noted
for its strict moral requirements; even
its enemies confess this. So evident
and striking has this feature been,
from Luther and Calvin to the Puri
tans and on till today, that even Ro
manists have been compelled to ac
knowledge it; and skeptics generally,
instead of endeavoricg to deny it have
rather made it a subject of ridicule, as
constituting an unnecessary restriction
of the natural Inclinations.
No charge of this kind is in danger
of being made utraln.t the rank and file
of llomanUu, even a they aiw-ar lo

not hesitate to commit the bloodiest

"the end justifies the means." They

world. Everywhere the word "Jesui
