Tho other day we were discussing with a lawyer
the prevalent practice' of misrepresentation and ex
travagant ( verbiage used by advertisers, and he
seemed to regard it aa a harmless amusement. Ho
quoted' tlio old Latin phrase, "Caveat emptor," and
said it was up to the buyer to beware. Perhaps tho
fall of Greece and Rome was duo to tho moral decad
ence, which made it necessary for everybody to look
out for themselves, and absolutely lose all confi
dence in each other. ' In our own country it has
been and is still necessary to keep one's weather eyo
open. Our business, 'however, has been built on a
different platform, but occasionally a -nistake will
bo made, and then there's nothing for us but to
explain and give redress. We placed on sale some
very pretty trays 2 were shown in the window
the ticket called them Mahogany trays; they were
not. The ticket did not tell tho truth; tho frames
were mahoganized; they were very good value, but
wo hope everyone who bought will return them, if
they thought they were mahogany, and are not

the way, if chance or business takes you near this

for a Christinas gift? If in doubt, here's a suggestion
AT NINE O'CLOCK SATURDAY THE
About 40 dozen pairs, excellent lamb and a few real

Claims ah to Fonadlns;.
The ltoman Cathollo church claims to
be founded directly on Jesus Christ,
Whom, together with all Christians, It
considers to be the Bon ot God. It
claims to be. not only the only true form
ot Christianity, so that all other
Christian churches are not 'true
churches,' and all other forms of
the Christian religion are heresies.
But It claims to be the only true reli
gion, the only real revelation of God,
the voice of the living God. the sole de
pository of divine truth, which has been
entrusted to Its keeping and which can
be received only through Its ministers.
who are the direct successors of the
apostles and representatives of God and
of Christ, with the pope at their head,
who la the vicar of Christ the vice
gerent of God, and through Its sacra
ments, ot which there are seven (bap
tism, marriage, unction, ordination,
penance, confirmation and mass), the
only channels of divine grace.
"There is no salvation ouuide ot the
ltoman Cathollo faith. The pope, who Is
the successor of Peter, who was the
greatest of the apostles and upon whom
Christ founded Ills church, holds the
Keys of heaven and hell. .The Tloman
Cathollo church boldly puts forth the
claim of Infallibility of the pope and of
the doctrine of spiritual absolutism.
"These are tremendous claims of the
supernatural order which the church has
held practically (allowing for their de
velopment and evolution) through all the
centuries, and which she holds today.
"It was Catholicism that converted
and civilised Hurope. Such nations as
England and Germany, France, Italy and
Spain were regarded under Roman Cath
olic tutelage. Jt Mas the church that
ave them, government, taught them art,
science and civilization. She. was school
mistress to the nations In their early
formative years. The first universities
were Cathollo universities. Art, sculp
ture, painting and music flourished un
der Cathollo Inspiration. The great ca
thedrals of Europe are monuments to
the Cathollo religion. Dante, the great
eat literary light In the middle ages, was
a Catholic. It may be said that the
ltoman Cathollo church ruled the earth
politically, Intellectually and spiritually.
Throughout the entire middle ages the
ltoman papacy was at Its height In the
eleventh, twelfth and thirteenth centu
ries. Oregory the Seventh (Itlldebrand)
brought Henry IV In penitence to Car
nose, Ilarbarosa humbled himself before
"With the beginning of the fourteenth
century a decline set In. due, as Cathollo
historians admit, to corruption and dis
sension within the church Itself. The
lives ot a great many of the, clergy. In
cluding even thelpopes, were,' scandalous.
Pope Alexander VI, pno of the Iiorgias,
was a monster of Iniquity. Europe be
held the unedlfytng spectacle of two and
even three popes contending at the same
time for the papal crown and villlfylng
and anathematising one another.
"With the sixteenth century and the
rise of Protestantism, the Cathollo church
received a blow from which, I think, she
has never since, despite all her efforts
at reformation, fully recovered. Her pre
tensions to universality were shattered.
Christianity was now divided into Catho
lic and Protestant.
"In 1S70, despite the pope's proclama
tion of personal Infallablllty and the high
est spiritual planes of the church, came
the complete loss of temporal power.
Roman Catholicism Is now but one of
the many forms ot Christianity and ot
j religion In the world.
What of Catholic Future t
"What ot the future of the Roman
Cathollo church? I am not a prophet,
nor the son pf a prophet, but aa a student
of history, aa an observer Intellectually
of the rise and tail of nations, empires
and religions, ot the whole divine course
of hlstorlo evolution, It would not seem
too presumptuous to say that Roman
Catholicism as the specific form ot Chris
tianity has probably reached Its zenith,
played Its full part In the economy of
unfolding religious life. In many things
It Is opposed to the modern progressive
spirit ot the age. It Is an absolute mon
archy In tho era of democracy. It dis
counts science and philosophy. It puts
Its ban upon Individual liberty. It la
bitterly opposed 'to socialism.
"Nietzsche In his Zarathustra Intro
duces as one ot his characters the last
pope. There was a first pope, there may
be a last. The popes may pass, as did
the Caesars, whose spiritual successors
they were. Rut the essence of Catholi
cism will not pass, nor the spiritual In
fluence which It has undoubtedly been
despite all Its errors, aberrations and
Imperfections, and Influence on the world,
for good despite Its Inquisitions, political
and spiritual tyrannies, gross Immorali
ties and crime; a lamp ot religion burn

"Apples are riot standing up this year."
This In the language ot apple, dealers and
grocers means that-they are dry-rotting.
Also It means, as a result, that apples
will probably bo somewhat higher this
year than usual. Fine looking apples on
the market at the present time will often
not bear close Inspection. On close ex
amination they will often be found to be
soft In epota or perhaps throughout the
entire apple.' On cutting Into the fruit
one will find It to be black and soft
practlvally to the core. The apperance In
general resembles that of an apple that
has been severely bruised and has been
given time to rot at the bruise. How
ever, it occurs In the choicest and most
carefully handled apples, as well as In
the windfalls. It Is the opinion of gro
cers that choice atuff that will "stand
up" will be sky high before the winter
is over. Fancy Idaho and Oregon applos
are still selling at JIM a bushel, but
retailers who have noticed the tendency
to dry rot are anxious to unload as soon
as possible. Colorado ganos are on the
market now at 11.40 a bushel. Those are J
of good quality, but smaller than' the

There has been very little change In
