: The Editor of Punch. —lt is a curious example of the irony of fate, says London Truth, that the new editor of Punch is a Roman Catholic. There was a time when Punch was so conspicuous for its attacks upon Roman Catholics that Doyle severed his connection, . with it., At one period these attacks grew so virulent that the Tablet announced that if they were continued it would publish a series of accurate biographies of the Punch staff, beginning with the editor. The attacks stopped, and the.biographies did hot appear.
