NATURE POINTED OUT
'General Duty Of All Who
Cannot Take Up Musket
For Uncle Sam
Tho Rev. M. S. Freeman, pastor of
ithe Congregational church, preached
.a powerful and effective sermon Sun
day morning, taking as his subject:
"'When God Calls 'Attention'!"
When the blessings of life come to
"us, said Mr. Freeman, we are Inclined
to take them for granted. We accept
thorn and ask not whence they come.
It is only when the disasters, the great
"world upheavals such as the present
arise, that we stop and ask what is
"the moaning? This is God's way of
"Calling us to attention.
Tho speaker referred to tho condi
tion of France before the war gay,
light-hearted, frivolous, careless appar
ently of the deeper relations of life,
nut thon came the storm clouds God
called and all France arose to give
tho world a new example of patriot
Ism, self-sacrlflce and spiritual awak
ening. And so It is with us. God has
called; we must respond, each to do
his duty in the great world effort to
re-establish freedom and Justice and
Prefacing his sermon, Rev. Free
man spoke of two movements in which
cur people are now asked to help the
Red Cross and the Liberty loan.
Of the Liberty loan he said:
"Reluctantly, and after unparalleled
.patience under provocation, our coun
try has been forced into the great war.
Whatever the origins of that war, the
passing of time has defined and clarl
Hed its issues, until it Is plain that the
conflict is now on between world-wide
autocracy and the hopes and aspira
tions of all free peoples.
"Some of us will enlist and, after
months of training, may bear a glori
ous part on the lighting front. All
honor to those of us who can and do!
"Most of us must find some other
-way or have no share In tho supreme
achievement of our time. Fortunately,
here Is a way open to almost every
one. Money can strike and strike
now, needs no months In training-
camp; no shipping for transportation.
Tho accumulated wealth of America,
placed at the disposal of our govern
ment, can rain giant blows upon the
strongholds, Prusslanlsm and Interna
"Your money can-do it can begin
the moment you subscribe for a bond
and keep striking all the while you
are saving it. And the blows soonest
struck count double.
"Why buy a Liberty bond? I leave
-to others to show that It is a safe and
profitable investment financially. Mor
ally and spiritually I affirm that It is
a sound investment and its dividends
Tho Rev. G. R. Dye at the First Bap
tist church also spoke of the loan:
"What response shall we make to
cur country's needs? Buy a Liberty
ibond and you will bo helping just as
really as though you went to the
front. Our country Is engaged in a
'war for liberty and honor against sci
entific barbarism, Civilization Itself
Is at stake. Wo must do our best.
"It may seem unusual to hear a mat
ter of Investments discussed from a
pulpit. Nevertheless I do urge every
ono who can do so to buy -a Liberty
bond. It Is a safe dividend-paying In
vestment and at tho same time a pa
triotic contribution to the cause of
-freedom, civilization and honor."
Tho Rev. Fr. Mulhane gave out on
Saturday tin) following statement:
"We cannot all of us take a gun and
canteen, but we can help by word and
deed. 'Money talks' is an old saying,
especially true now. To buy a Liberty
bond lo an effective way to show our
concern In the welfare of our beloved
land. Back of the bond Is the credit
of a great country, that has never re
pudiated a dollar of Its obligations. It
is a safe and sound investment vlowed
solely from on a financial side, as It Is
free of all taxes. Hence we can ad
vise everyone to buy a bond, as the
conditions are very simple and plain.
Let a little of your savings do a bit of
'talk for the good of that fine, genial,
.old relative of us all Uncle Sam."

L COM S
Despite tho plans made In many
cities for tho ousonance of Tuesday
as a holiday, marking the rpglstratlon
of men of military ago for service If
called to tho colors, Mt Vernon will
follow the plan of passing the day by
no other mark of celebration than the
registering of tho male citizens.
Tho Chamber of Commerce and var
ious ofllclals discussed the Idea of
making the day a holiday, closing the
storcB and factories and holding a pa
triotic demonstration and program,
but after some discussion It was de
cided that a moro substantial method
of showing tho patriotism of every
man In the city would be to carry on
the regular business activities and
make arrangements so that men com
ing within the limits prescribed for
registration could be given ample time
to perform their duty without Interfer
ing with their regular work,
Leroy G. Mayer, secretary of the
Chamber of Commerce, said, in speak
ing of the arrangement finally decided
upon, that the impression prevails that
keeping tho Industries moving and let
ting the men register without Inter
rupting the progress of business is a
greater patriotic service than to stop
production In order lo hold a parade.
"The machinery and other articles
manufactured here are needed badly
and some of the factories are behind
In their work," said Mr. Mayer, "and
for that reason Registration Day will
be observed In Mt. Vernon solely by
the registering of the men upon whom
that duty devolves."
Superintendent P. C. Zemer of the
public schools announced Monday that
the schools will be kept open during
Registration Day. This statement most
likely did not meet with the approval
of the pupils, but Superintendent
Zemer said that there was no appar
ent reason for suspending school work.

LISPING AND STUTTERING.
Children Should Be Taught How to Use
Their Speech Organs.
Lisping may be caused by a lack of
practice in the organs of speech. Stut
terers are recruited largely from tho
ranks of the llspera. Children Imitate
the slovenly and disagreeable lan
guage of their elders.
Among the causes of lisping, In ad
dition to the wrong use of speech or
gans, are abnormal teeth, lips, tongue,
Jaw or palate. Some cases are appar
ently due to carelessness or haste In
reproducing speech sounds.
Lisping is not to be considered ab
normal unless It noticeably persists
beyond the age of five or six years.
Usually tho tendency to slur over
words disappears rapidly In the upper
grades of school. Fully one-fourth of
the children entering school suffer
from this speech defect.
Many educators argue that the first
months of school should be given over
to exercises in oral language Intended
to form correct habits of speech. They
claim that the anxious haste of the
primary teacher to teach children to
read is unjustified and maintain that
If one-half of the time used for phonic
drills were devoted to voice cultivation
