The Unpardonable Sin Once upon a Friday cherry, sick of prunes and of beans weary to a restaurant I hurried, 'feeling T would have some chops. I was tired of eating pancake mackerel and Salmon beefsteak, Friday fish, with Holy Water and the: other kinds of slops. As into the room V rambled, and a joy within 1 me gamboled, to a seat I lightly ambler tripping gently o'er the floor. "Waiter" auoth I, yelling loudly, as4 he sauntered to me proudly, and he listened for my order, 'bring me in a mutton chop. Cook it well-in home-made butter, let It fry. and blaze and splutter, till it drips in rich red gravy, I would eat of meat once more. And the waiter, j always dreaming, straightway brought the chop a-steaming, mutton I chop .the like of which I'd never seen before. Little j recked I of the morrow, doing penance for my sorrow, when I'd have to pay the "Father" to eradicate my sin For my system had a craving, ; notwithstanding the Pope's 4 raving against eating meat on Friday,- tho he drinks booze by the tin. As I started in to eating, eyes aglow and proud- heart beating, suddenly there came a clatter from the t restaurant front door. With much noise and clash and clatter, frequent- hiccoughs and loud chatter, in there walked . a Holy Father, almost j sprawling on the floor. "Waiter (hie) bring me a bottle, and be sure that it has got all thJe ingredients of Benedictine, " Monastery beer and booze. One more beer, and then another and some more 1quick, lest I smother let me drink until it runs into my pockets and my ! shoes. As the Holy Father gabbled and upon his priest-gown drabbled bits of sandwiches and fishes like drunk, Holy Fathers do, suddenly he saw me eating, and without a word of greeting, forthwith at me madly dashing full into a) rage .he flew: "Ignominious dog and -heathen, Friday's not the day nor season to eat meat, and well you know it, come and my Big Toe adore! You may rob and kill and pillage every creature in, the village, slash your wife's throat and commit all sorts of ! sins and crimes galore I forgive with my indulgence, give yc;ur halp a refulgence, and you can go out into -the world and blithely. sin some more. But in eating meat oh Friday, you had better choked and died a criminal like Judas or the thieves that swung; upon the tree. Its the one sin that's unpardoned; it's sure proof that you're j sin-hardened; drunkenness is mere diversion, priestly pastime in high glee. ; Why a priest may ruin a 'daughter,' and atone in Holy Water, and drown the mem'ry of the act, quaffing Monastery beer." Then (the priest arose and staggered out the door and on he swaggered, as he reeled from post to corner, looking thru vhis red eyes blear. He a1 god and l a sinner; I -the loser, he the winner, ust because I made nrydinnrdf flesh meat instead of beer. Then I cursed his pagan tea ching, and from now henceforth I'm preaching doctrines of jfree Christian worship of the God that I adore. And that priest is no more creeping where my wife and daughter's sleeping, and this bachelor's name is mentioned at my residence ne'ermbre. Now reread The Yollbw 1 Jacket, boost its cause - and with subs back it, and my family gets " clubs for it, as we'll do forevermore.

Every reader of The Yellow Jacket knows how Jesuit Private Secretary Tumulty has forced Masons; G. A.

OF AMERICA. J This is the day of salvation. The time ! has come when you must save not only yourselves, but the Protestant religion which you and your chnrches profess. You are the leaders in religious thought in America. Are you keeping abreast of the times? Are you posting yourselves as you should, to cope with the intrigues of the Romish clergy? Do you realize that Papal supremacy in this country means the destruction of tree worship, and the annihilation of your own church? Do you know that the Roman Catholic representatives in this country designate Protestantism as "a murderous hag slowly dying of congenital rottenness and corruption?" Do you approve by your silent indifference, the ,. official characterization that Priest IPhelan, the American mouthpiece of the last three Popes, has gtFen Protestants, in declaring to I the American Catholics that "The men who openly profess themselves Protestants are a disgrace ; to our common humanity?" Do you propose to submit in silence to such insults and slurs, while the Jesuit jugglers and Romish Hierarchy deliberately plot the destruction of the life-work hi which you are engaged? It is incomprehensible to me that Protestant preachers, in ,th face j of all that Rome has heaped upon them and their j religion, can kmger re-main silent, and I am glad to say that many have spoken from their pulpits in no uncertain tones. For two years ! I have been making the fight for Protestantism and freedom of; conscience and- constitutional worship in this country;. I have borne threats, rebuffs, plots, boycott, official handicap and everything else that the hellish Hierarchy could heap on me in their futile effort- to -put my paper out of the United States mails. I have amassed a collection of startling facts about Romanism which I have published in my Anti-Catholic Dictionary which leave absolutely no room for doubt in the mind of any reasoning man. With this book available at only 50 cents, there is absolutely no excuse, for any man's remaining in ignorance of the plans and purposes of Rome. I Yet in spite" of all this, frequently I read of half-baked Protestant clergymen who rise in their pulpits and endorse Roman CathoM ioism- deliberately deceiving their congregations. The day lor Romish truckling is past. Protestantism must f either defend itself against the aggressions of Roman, Catholicism or suffer the consequences of its sleepy apathetic indifference. God forbid that! the Protestant preachers shall ever be gagged in free America. Men, in the name of humanity. I call on Read The yon to take a stand. Yellow Jacket. It has never misstated the facts Read my Anti-Catholic Dictionary. Then, if you are still unconvinced, all I have to say is j that records reeking in the blood of helpless innocence have ceased to fir the zeal of the Protestant followers of Luther, Huss, Calvin and Wesley, as they did of yore. i R. DON LAWS. PROTESTANT I MARRIAGES A SIN. Priest Phelan wrote an editorial in his Western Watchman of June 24th, 1915, about ; the marriage of a Catholic to a Protestant wife and said: "The test! came when, the first child) was born. How have it baptized j in the Catholic Church without' having that unlawful mar riage rectified?" (A marriage m a Protestant j Church', remember.) "There was a joint visit to be made to the priest, a public confession of wrong-doing, and perhaps a second marriage ceremony. The young man lacked the courage and put the matter off. The Protestant wife did not want her I child brought up a heathen and insisted on its being baptized. The poor Catholic" husband consented on the theory that the Protestant religion was better than jio religion atall. Other children came! and they too, were baptized Protestants. The burden of sin now bearing on. the young Catholic man became so heavy that it crushed out all his Catholic manhood and he 'gave up his religion in despair." Any sane man j that cannot understand that; ought to be bored for the simples. The next time a Catholic tells youj that Rome does not regard Protestant marriage legal concubinage,! read him Priest-Phelan's official utterance' and ask him if he thinks you are a copper-riveted fool. j ; -. "GREAT AXD WOJDERFUL BOOK." Rev. W. B. Abernethy, A. M. D.

This Is the issue, and upon this issue we, as American citizens, must assert ourselves. The command has gone out from Rome where our Lord' God the Pope, the Infallible Father of the Vatican, sits in papal "splendor as the vice-scrent of Jesus Christ upon earth. He has issued the order that as this country was discovered by a loyal son of the "true church" (?) it belongs to them byj right of discovery and consequently, they have tolerated, the obnoxious presence of the cursed heretics altogether too long. These Dago Popes apparently would have us forget that Christopher Columbus not only NEVER discovered America, but that he was not a Catholic but a heretic. It makes little difference to them how well it is known that good old Christopo Columbo was a Jew and a Mason. Just as they crucified Jesus, who was a Jew, and then made him their God, whom they (Continued on page 4, col. 3.) Our Lay Text: "I do not pretend to be a prophet. But though not a prophet, I see a very dark cloud on our horizon. That dark cloud is coming from Rome. It is filled with tears of blood. It will rise and increase till its flanks wilT be torn by a flash of Hghtnmg, followed by a. fearful peal of thunder. Then a cyclone, such as the world has never seen will pass over the country, spreading ruin and desolation from north Jo south. After it is over, there will be long days of peace and prosperity; for popery with its Jesuits and merciless inquisition, will have been forever swept away' from our country. Neither I .nor you, but our children will see these things." ABRAHAM LINCOLN.
