The navy " department submitted an estimate to congress asking $90,000 for this pur pose, butj the house' appropriations committee did not see fit to Include that sum in. the urgent deficiency- bill. "Chairman Fitzgerald was of- the opinion that the chief reason for the purchase was the elimination of the fertilizer- factory, which Is considered an awful nuisance by officers on. duty at that station. He critised the navy department for falling to include that purchase when the development and improvement of the submarine base was originally provided for.

Arthur F. Purkiss upon his pas torate at the Central Baptist church was marked by special programmes at the various services of the church on Sunday. The church was most beau tifully decorated ' with hydrangeas, clematis and yellow daisies, banks of these flowers-- being., arranged on the broad ; window-ledges and along the pulpit platform, most effectively. ' Intrdudctory remarks were made for the deacons by Deacon C'.- Edward Smith. Mr. Smith said: "Today Is one to which we have long been look ing forward, with hope and prayer. We ard confident that -here is a -man se lected by God to be our pastor, to be our spiritual inspiration and leader. Our work together has' Just begun and. we must remember that no matter how spiritual the leadership, how untiring fhework put forth by this leader, the the- - fullest accomplishment '. cannot be realized unless.' we . do our . share With this in mind,, we feel that we are still looking forward to the most sucr cessful and spiritual era '' of our church.. '- . Mr; Purkiss in reply, emphasize of Mr. Smith s words, that no pastor can do without the earnest help and co operation of the church. Success de pends not alone on the man at the I head, but on the man and the people oacK or tne minister must De in prayers and love of the people. Mr. Purkiss. epc;e of the evidences of this intention. . m - the earnest words ad dress'edVto -him through 'Mr. Smith and the loving preparation shown in the beauty of the decorations through out the church. Mr. Purkiss read as his Scripture less the tenth chapter of Mark and took for the theme of his sermon, Re ligion as. Life. Sometimes, he said, we have the con ception that church ana religion are one and the same thing. Such is .not the case. The church is the pro duct of religion but it is not religion, We hear it said sometimes that the churches are all alike, that they are all good, all Dound for the same place There is some good in all churches, the vitality of their -message depend ing on us, as well as the character of it. - - Again- we sometimes think of the church as the embodiment of a creed and those not able to subscribe to the articles of that creed feel that a bar rier to belonging to church. .The creed is but a proSuct of the church, There are a great many people out in the world who have more religion than some of those who are in church living up to a hard, and fast creed. Sometimes we think that sacrifice is religion. That a life filled with con scious and patiently borne sacrifice is the truly religious life. Religion is a devotion to high and noble things ana such devotion always inspires in voluntary sacrifice. As Jesus conceives it, religion Is life, abundant mental, physical, spir itual life. No one really knows what life is to define it. It has eluded philosophers and scientists. The only way to know life is to experience it. There lies the danger of teaching and preaching, since it cannot be describ ed. The religion of Jesus brings a deep satisfactions Most religions fail here, giving only a spirit of restlessness. Jesus came to bring peace into the midst of the World s tumult and storm. It is difficult for- imperfect man to en ter info this. Much is said today of salvation by character. The gospel teaches us sal vation for character. . Jesus can start any man ' in the right way, ho -matter or what race, or . color, or character. God establishes relations . with him through Jesus. The religion of Christ removes from our minds all fear. We are living in times of great blind, brute force, but after all these forces are but God's servants. Nothing can havpen to man that God cannot turn to his ulti mate triumph and good. Paradoxically, the religion of Jesus promotes dissatisfaction. Many re ligions give a narcotic satisfaction. dulling effort, and producing only a .satisfaction with things as they are. Jesus gives us a noble dissatisfac tion, an instinct and desire to climb. We. are anxious to hurry on toward the light, toward something higher and better. The need to be calm, but to make ourselves and tne wrld bet ter. One other thing this religion gives us power. The crying desire of men is for power. We bend every effort toward that end and spend years in training our youth to .develop their highest powers In every line. And what Is the greatest power in the world? The power of personality, the ability to bend thin;3 to our will, bringing with It a poise, joy. passion and devotion to the big things of life. At the Beginning of Chrisfs church there streamed forth this pow er. We today live on too small a plane. . We do not sound the depths of life. Life is irrestable. Give it a start and it gorows. The life of Jesus Is the same. If started in our hearts it will grow. So the man who would have spiritual power must bend his efforts toward developing that life. we don t spend time, now-a-days. on things not worth while. So we must have all our powers at their highest expression to be able to go out in the world to do . the work of the Master. ou arewvoite A Cordial Invitation Is Extended To You To Attend Our Formal Fall ODeniner TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 18tji TO THE 20th INCLUSIVE MILLINERY WOMEN'S AND MISSES' APPAREL .This formal showing is rriost complete, the most attractive of the Atitum's models in both Millinery and Apparel being shown in profusion. iz NO LICENSE SPEAKER , :AT ND CHURCH Rev. W. E. Lamphear Addressed Con gregation at Sunday Morning Serv- ice.- ' " ' At the Second Congregational church Sunday morning, Rev. W. E. Lanphear' field -secretary 'of the Con necticut Temperance Union, spoke on the - no-license: question. 'His topic was Making the World Safe for Dem ocracy. ' Among the points of his ad dress were these: - We are in a great world war to help make the " world safe for democracy. We - should also work to make' our state, or nation,' or city, safe for our citizens. -' ' Some say, one thing at a time. We were deep In - the fight against liquor before the world war started. Lloyd George and other world leaders state that; liquor ' is a greater enemv than Germany; " - The war may last for years. ' We can do no better service than - to stop liquor selling now. The ' kaiser couldn't '. do better for himself than ' to foster the American saloon. It -is his best-friend. Noth ing so militates against' our success in this war than the sale of liquors. One man showed his 'patriotism by saying he was willing to see all his wife's -relations in the war. I am ; not a prohibition party man. This movement is not- a party one. Men of all -parties support .it. The li quor traffic has manifold underground ramifications.- Churchmen hold prop erty contest to the saloon, etc. In this time -of our nation's need shall such press the nuisance for one year, which incidentally, was the year during which efforts were made to sell the site to the government. - 'Captain McKean informed the corti ntittee that if the land is not purchas edN it will be used for a fertilizer fac tory, and the submarine base cannot be used with the factory in operation. He stated that the stench was so bad that it nauseated husky sailprmen." men not be ready to sacrifice these interests. In the state of Connecticut the di rect cost of the liquor traffic is $16 to 817 per person, but the direct cost is not less 'than. $100 for each inhabitant as I can demonstrate to anyone who will sit down with me to go over the facts. The sacrifice of lives in the country to the saloon is 66 to 67.0OO. Connecticut's share is 660. In our Jails are 1200 prisoners on the average, 900 of these are there because of drink. We need the labor of those 900 men. Don't think voting out the saloons will totally stop drinking. Some- old topers will get it somehow, but even these will drink less if the constant temptation is removed. Far fewer boys and young men .will begin the habit. What are you going to do about it? . - 1 I heard a man on the street say "If Norwich goes no license it will be on the bum!" I said to him: "If you have had a saloon -doctor- for 30 odd years and he has left you on the bum, isn't it time to change doctors? The saloon business will he on tne bum if Norwich goes No." When Oct. 1 comes and you go into the ballot booth and press the lever labeled "Yes" you are voting for the kaiser. If you press the "No" button, it is a vote for democracy. The signers of the petition have done their share by providing an op portunity to vote. Will you do your share by voting No and getting oth ers to vote the same? Our union last winter tried to get a bill through to permit women to vote on this question. The saloonmen in opposing silently admitted that If women voted they would in large majority vote against the saloon. I am not going to be harsh enough to predict what the result will be, but win or lose, the result will be worth the effort in education. In surrounding towns every night women He awake nights wondering if their husbands are coming home drunk from the --saloons of Norwich. Let us clean up the cesspools of Nor wich both for ourselves and our sur rounding no license towns. More than 85 per cent, of the terri tory of the United States and 60 per cent, of Its people are no license. Con gress has protected our states by for bidding liquor to pass our state towns into dry territory. The saloons of the District of Co lumbia close their doors next Novem ber, s A week ago last night the last distil ler of liquor closed his business so far as beverage use is concerned. The breweries are still at . work and wasting food supplies sufficient to feed seven million people. The United States senate voted on Aug. 1 to submit a national amend ment to the- constitution for prohi bition by the amazing vote of 65 to 20. Please God, by 1920 the law of the land will be national prohibition. Shall Connecticut be pulled on the water wagon as one of the last 12 states 'or on the honor roll of the 36 to ratify the amendment? No License Campaign Notes. Gustav Bochman of ' Hartford will speak Tuesday night at 7.30 on Falls avenue and at 8.15 at Union Square. W. E. Lanphear of Hartford will speak at 7.30 at Taftville and at 8.15 on North Main street. Greeneville. . On Sunday, Sept. 23, Rev. Mr: Pur kess will speak on the "no license question at the morning service of the Central Baptist church. Rev. S. H. Howe, D. D., of Park church, will also speak. TWO SONS ENLISTED: TWO ON DRAFT LIST Mrs. James McGrory, of Norwich, Furnishing Young Patriots for the Country's Defence.

SPIRITUAL SLACKERS. Such Are Too Many Who Call Them selves Christian Soldiers, Rev. Peter J. Cuny Tells St. Patrick's Congre gation. Preaching at the . high mass in St. Patrick's church Sunday from the text. The years pass: I go the way whence I shall not return Job xvi-23. Rev. Peter J. Cuny considered what that life is to which Job refers in these im pressive phrases whether the life which is merely a succession of activi ties p,na sensations and experiences, or life which is a preparation for an eternity of existence' with God. Earth ly life ends when the vital spark leaves the body; but the soul lives on forever. The longest earthly life seems short, and none can foretell the exact length of the span of his existence in this world. Life ends often in child hood or early youth, principally through the heritage of those sins of the fathers which result In Impaired bodily strength, quite as frequently because of ignorance of or disregard for the laws of hygiene, or bacause of ones own sins. But whatever the length of life, it is sufficiently long to enable man to carry out God's purpose for him, to make this earthly exist ence a fitting preparation for . eternity Life then is a training time: -and in the perfect system of the Catholic doc trine there comes the intensive train ing of Purgatory, which fits the soul for an eternity of service in God s army of those men of good will who have gone' before Those who, while calling themselves Christian soldiers, shirk this training, this discipline, who live rathor for sin, they are the spiritual slackers whom the preacher scored. If obedience to God and "His law His ten commandments is one's main purpose, then nvill a man be in condition to answer "Ready!" when the final summons comes. There will be none of the cringing of the spirit ual slacker, who, after a life given up to indulgence, hopes to get by. on his death bed a chance he cannot always "count upon. The fact that no lire Is wholly sat isfied, that there is always the craving for Perfection, is, the preacher said, to his mind the strongest proof of the Immortality of the soul. High mass has been resumed at St. Patrick's after suspension during the summer and the regular choir sang during Sunday's service, directed by Oranist Frank L. Farrell. JU-f. Farrell and John Sullivan being heard In sev eral solos during the mass. Regular vespers, followed by Renediotion of the Blessed Sacrament, has been re sumed also, beginning at half past three, Sunday afternoon. of each park, to see that no one vio- lates fcbe privileges of the stopping place. There will be running water. In the parks, benches and tables whera picnics can be held, and provisions will be made so that automobllists may stay over night if .they care to. If all goes well, the parks will ba ready for use by next spring. On Furlough From Niantie Camp.
