The practical value of this book to young women cannot be over-estimated. It is also a fitting gift for parents to give their daugh. ters, or employers to present to women em. ployees. Says an eminent Catholic prelate: “So highly do I esteem it that I have preached it from cover to cover to a Young Ladies' Sodality.”
The Reverend Clergy will find the book a valuable auxiliary in their parochial work.

THIS LETTER SPEAKS FOR ITSELF.
MOUNT ANGEL COLLEGE,
February 23, 1905. EDITOR DONAHOE'S MAGAZINE,
Boston, Mass. DEAR SIR:
Will you please tell me where I may order “Whisper" by Frances Wynne—the book of poems, so affectionately reviewed by Father Russell in your last New Year's edition? Or still better, if it be not too much trouble for you, will you order the book for me?
By the way, I wish to avail myself of this opportunity to tell you how much I like your Magazine. I know of no magazine in which the illustrations are selected with such an ästhetic taste, reproduced with such artistic finesse, and shrouded in such a poetic halo as in your Magazine. The articles, too, are so interesting and instructive that I cannot see how any Catholic family, imbued with truly Catholic instinct and sensibility, can prefer to subscribe to purely secular magazines in place of yours.
I am particularly fond of Fr. Talbot Smith's articles on opera and stage. I venture to say that I regard the idea as superannuated, that the stage is fundamentally bad and that the attendance at theatres is to be frowned upon by all good Catholics. As there are good books and bad books, good friends and bad friends, so there are good plays and bad plays, and as no sane man will discourage the reading of all books on account of the pernicious influence of the many bad books, so I cannot see why, on account of the many bad plays, we should not go to see the good plays. Let me add that the percentage of bad books in the book market is much larger than the percentage of bad plays on the stage. There is no more powerful factor for good than the stage, as, of course, there is no stronger factor for evil than the stage. This was evidently recognized in the good mediæval days when the attendance of miracle plays was highly encouraged by the clergy and, I believe, even rewarded by the granting of indulgences.
He who points out to the untrained with the authority of a connoisseur, which plays are good and which are bad, and trains our eyes in the school of dramatic criticism, so that we may distinguish for ourselves good plays from bad ones, does a very noble and priestly work.
F. DOMINIC, O.S.B.
