Ms era Rev. John C. Sage Calls Father of Country nings True Christian Patriot In Hla 8ermon Yesterday. LAUDS HAY AND BRYAN Believe* Principles of Jesus on Which Nation la Founded Being Carried Out at Preaent "Washington, the Christian Patriot was the subject of the address tor the Itev. John C. Sage at the vesper ser vices of the St. John's Episcopal church, yesterday. Although the storm materially lessened the attendance, a group of the old soldiers, and mm bers of the Keokuk cfhapter D. A. R.* and of the Relief Corps, who were especially invited to vices attend) the ser wer» present. Not only did Dr. Sage pay a tribute to the Christianity of the father of our country, but he took occasion to laud the principles which have governed the dealings oo the late John Hay, and William Jen Bryan, secretaries of state. "If we ask what is patriotism, the ordinary answer and the correct one, is love of country," Dr. Sage said in introducing his theme. "A patriot is therefore one who loves his country. But what does this love of countryi mean. DOES the it mean that we love-only material things? Does it mean, what the song says, 'I love thy rooks and rills?' Of course we love the ma* terlal aspects of our country. But wa must go deeper. We must ask what are the principles on which a state is founded. "What is it that constitutes a state? Not walled cities, coast defenses ana the like, but high minded' people. Men Mho know their duties and rights. They are patriots because beneath their love for the material tilings is a love for Justice, and for the prin cipals on which the country is found ed." Christian patriotism is based on the shaped, principles of Jesus-Christ, Dr. Sage Washington himself read the held. Justice Brewer wrote time that the United States guided and» developec by Christ's teachings, the speaker I/rant on to explain. Lauds Hay and Bryan "We have two examples of chris tian patriots in two of our secretar ies of state," Dr. Sage resumed. "At no time has this patriotism been so well defined as through the dealings of the lata John Hay. Hay showed ^that we were a christian nation. Es pecially was this so in our dealings with China.

His ancestors were all christian patriots. We must* look to them for his inherent mili tary and religious traits." Dr. gage then went into some de tail concerning the geneaology of the father of our country, showing the God-fearing.anosstry of the man, and the traits of character which develop ed in the man whose birfchiday the country was observing yesterday.
