Banner. The Cedar Point community is to be con gratulated and commended for having inaugu rated the idea of some fitting testimonial to the selected men who will leave for the training campon the 27th of this month. The affair held at their Community Hall on Monday night reflects the proper spirit. At best we can never sufficiently honor the men who have been chosen to perpetuate the valoi for which this county is so justly famous. A similar function will be held at Ridge on next Monday evening, Sept. 24, and every man and woman in the county who is sensible of his or her obligation to these men should be present. The selected men should be there also. The dance and reception is given for them and they are the honored guests of the evening. They are requested to wear a white ribbon in their lapels to distinguish them from the others pres ent and to enable ihe committee in charge to show them the proper courtesies. The number of our youn g men who are al ready actively engaged in the different depart ments of the armv and naval establishments con stitutes a most gratifying response from old St. Mary’s to the nation’s call in this, the hour of her most trying need. In one week more, on September 27, our representation in the military forces will be further augmented bv the mustering in of the mother county’s first detachment of the National Army. In looking over the list, published elsewhere in this issue, of those who will comprise this ad vance guard, it is apparent that they are in every sense of the word, a “selected” body of young men. St. Mary’s is giving “of hei best’’ in defense of those same principles for which our forefathers sacrificed their fortunes and their lives. While we would not attempt to minim ize the hardships, privations and dangers that they must encounter, yet deep in their hearts they must be conscious of the rare distinction that in their jouth and physical perfection has been bestowed upon them. To clean, whole some lives they owe the honor and privilege that they will attain when they lake their places beside the flower of England, France and our other allies in the last great struggle between democracy and militarism. Nobly they will discharge the duty that a confident nation has imposed upon them. Will we who remain at home do ours? We vie with each other in honoring them during these last few days before we send them away to hear the "brunt of battle. We will spare no effort or expense to provide them with every possible comfort and to cater as far as lies within our power to their every! material want. But when the day of parting comes and in the days of separation that must follow, will we lighten the burden of heartache and sorrow that must be their’s in bidding farewell to the fond ones at home and to all that they hold dear and sacred in the land of their birth? Will we set an example of fortitude and self sacrifice to strengthen and hearten them until they return triumphant to receive the plaudits of a grateful nation? We are sure of them and we should be equally sure of ourselves, that we do not discourage or unnerve them by a display of weakness on our own part; that we enthuse them by our messages and inspiration; that we help to make them, by our example, the heroes we know them to be. Let every letter from home be filled with cheeiiug words that will in still fresh courage into their manly hearts. Let us bear our burden as patiently and nobly as they will bear their’s and make them as proud of us as we are of them. k | New Advertisements | For Sale Prime Dry Red Chaff Seed Wheal for sale.
