Blair Lee has consistently upheld President Wilson in his measures for Preparedness. The same cannot be said in favor of Mr. David Lewis, his opponent, as the Congressional Record will show. Congressman Lewis, less than a year ago, made the statement that Senator Lee should remain in the Senate. In these trying times, it is doubly important to have Maryland represented by a Senator who is in full accord and sympathy with President Wilson in his policy and meas ures, which stand for safety, protection and for the honor of the United States. If Senator Lee was needed in the Senate a year ago to uphold the hands of President Wilson, he is much more needed now, as he is do ing splendid work in support of the President.

Thursday afternoon, April 20th, the remains of Mr. Alex. P. Beatty, of Wash ington, D. C., was interred in the United j Brethren cemetery at this place, short ' funeral services being held at the home ! of Mr. and Mrs. M.. L Rouzer, Rev. W. C. Waltemyer, of the Lutheran church, : officiating. j Speaking of our deceased friend, Mr. i Charles H. Heeds, of Carlisle, Pa., writ- I ing for the Carlisle Evening Sentinel, | say*: j “Our letter this week is one of the ; saddest that we have penned during our ! many journalistic years, rendered so by I our personal association of more than I six decades, including boyhood, manhoul, ' and advancing years, as well as practical i representatives of the same trad I printing. “Alex. P. Beatty, youngest son of that ; foremost citizen, the late Captain E. Beatty, of Company A, Seventh Penn sylvania Reserves, was born in 1848. “After attending the Public Schools and the Grammar connected with Dick inson College, he entered the office of the Carlisle American, Geo. Zinn, editor | and proprietor, as an apprentice to the ] printer trade, which ha finally finished in the office of the Carlisle Herald “During his early days as a journey man printer, he traveled extensively, and worked on daily morning papers in many large cities and towns. “At different periods he was editor and proprietor of offices in Carlisle, Me chanicstown, (now Thurman) Mil., and Georgetown, now know l as Washington, D. C. “It was during the 70’s that the de ceased received his first appointment to the Government Printing ofli ;e at Wash ington. After succeeding to the owner ship of the Maryland Journal, he wedded Miss Sarah Rouzer, the daughter of one of the prosperous and influential citizens of the mountain town. “After a few years, he was favored with a second appointment to the world’s greatest printing office. “He was a worthy member of Pioneer Council of Jonadabs, of Washington, one of the most powerful temperance organ izations in the world. “During the past twenty years Aleck Beatty was regarded as one of the lead ing factors in the Mission work at the Capitol of the Nation, especially of that branch of the Central Union Mission, lo cated in the northwest section in prox imity to the river front. A veteran work er informs us that he not only sacrificed his time outside of Government employ, but his finances in his efforts t > redeem his fellowman. “Funeral services were held at his home on Thursday evening, April 20, at 6 30, largely attended by representatives of the organizations with which he was closely identified as well as his fel.i w craftsmen. Rev. W. A. Marshall, pas tor of the Presbyterian church, of which he had been a devoted member for eight years, conducted the service.” ’Rah For Mayor Marlin. One day last week our new Mayor. Mr. Joseph C. Martin, went a fishing up Hunting creek and came home happy and with a smile that lasted several deys. He caught two fine trout, one weighing ’if pounds, 15 inches long, and another not quite so heavy. This was not the first lime he was after the spotted beau ties, nor was it the first he has I rough! home. $ I Ecunl Trip EVERY SUNDAY Excursions (o BALTIMORE. On regular trains in both directions.

It Is well known that shopkeepers make pounds by ignoring farthings, oi by giving something for them that is worth far less than a farthing; but where shopkeepers make the pounds, banks and tho English government make their hundreds of pounds, ac cording to a writer in Pearson’s. If a farthing is due from you in taxes, you are charged Id. On the other hand, you are never paid Id for a farthing. The same principle Is applied to fractions of pounds. Banks In reck oning interest for themselves call any part of £1 a full pound, whereas in reckoning Interest for you odd shil lings are left out of account. Thus for a deposit of £99 9s lid you would receive interest on £99 only. It is amazing how the state profits by not paying fractions of pence. The government has a special fund In which are placed the fractions ot pence withheld in paying dividends on i government stock. This fund amount [ ed to more than £150,000 in ten years before being used for other purposes As far as the government is con cerned, farthings mean a lot. WHY RAIN INDUCES SLEEP > Moisture, It Is Asserted, Causes th 6 Blood to Circulate Far Slower I Than It Should. Sleep is the result of poisoning. A day spent in active work, whether of the mind or the muscles, entails exer tion. Exertion means the breaking I down of cells in various parts of the body, and the waste from these brok en-down cells forms a sort of poison which It is the duty of the blood to carry away. When awake, we make more poison than the blood can re move; when asleep, we make less; consequently by alternately waking and sleeping, the balance is evened up. When we wake up fresh, all these toxic or poisonous products have been removed; when we wake up “stale" it 1s because we have not been able to got rid of them. Working too hard or too long, or sleeping too little or too lightly, means that the poison is in creasing in quantity and our health suffers. The desire to sleep late is the body’s signal that we need more sleep in order to get rid of this body ! waste. In crisp, cold weather, in a bedroom I with the windows open, the blood cir culates rapidly. We breathe more easily, the air enters the lungs more rapidly, the purifying oxygen enters the blood more freely and eight hours of sleep will purge the system of all the previous day's harm. In rainy weather, or in a room with the windows closed, the blood circu lates slowly and sluggishly. Breath ing moist air is harder than breath- I ing dry air, so that the body has to do j more work. This takes away some of its capaelty for removing the work poison. In addition to this, when the air is damp the oxygen is held fast by the air and it does not go through the membrane of the blood vessels in the lungs so easily. The blood, therefore, receives leas of the purify ing oxygen and is not as well able to rid the body of the poison. In order to make up for the differ ence between dry and damp air a greater number of hours of sleep are needed. If, for example, on a rainy night or in a closed room, the amount of oxygen received is only one-half of what it ought to be, it will be neces sary to sleep twelve hours in order [ to secure as much good as eight hours in crisp and dry air. Sleeping late on rainy mornings shows that nature is not satisfied with the amount of recovery from work of the day before. This is the cause of a “bad taste in the mouth," of much yawning, of aches in the joints and ol a bad temper at breakfast time. For | exactly the same reasons people in i mountainous countries sleep much less on the average than those in the lowlands. —Pittsburgh Post. Y. M. C. A. In Egypt. Wherever a camp has been creat ed the V. M. C. A. has pitched Its ten! —at first an ordinary canvas one, but later on one made of matting, says the London Mail. Each tent is rup by a voluntary secretary—usually a university man—who merely looks to the association for his board and lodg ing, and who is responsible for the organization of his particular area At each of these centers the men find materials for letterwriting, papers tc read, games to play; they can get good square meals at ridiculously low prices, and they can use the tent ab solutely as their recreation’room. Ev ery evening there is something doing —concerts, organized by the secretary or by private individuals, in which the men take part; popular lectures, competitions, boxing matches, etc. En passant, it is interesting to note that since the association started op erations among the troops in Egypt alone it has distributed 3,GU0,000 sheets of paper and as many envelopes, and that at the present moment it requires 400,000 sets every month. One won ders how many of these letters would have been written had it not been for the intervention of the association. Corrected His Age. A well-known textile union official who is on a recruiting committee tells a story of a man aged forty-four years, who was anxious to join the army. At the recruiting office he put his foot in it by telling his true age, and was rejected. Going to the union man he com plained bitterly of the red tape ideas that kept him out of the army. “Well,” said his adviser, "go back and say you made a mistake, and that your real age is thirty-six." Away went the would-be soldier, and putting on a bold front, told the re cruiter that he was only thirty-six years of age, “And why on earth did you say you were forty-four?” asked the sergeant. "Oh —you see—” stammered the man, "I got a bit mixed. It’s my moth er who is forty-four!”—Loudon An swers. Nothing More Lacking. “Young man,” said the elderly mil lionaire, "my daughter has had every luxury.” “Every luxury but one, perhaps, and that one I am in a position to supply, sir.” “What do you mean?” “A husband.” One of Life’s Necessities. . “Dubwalte figures his expense ac count rather closely.” "He didn’t u6e to be that way.” “Oh. he has a car now. A man has to be careful to keep a balance in the bank large enough to cover his gaso line bills.” _ Terms SI.OO in Advance NO. 7. I The Master’s Re ! ception Evening By REV. HOWARD W. POPE of the Moody Bible Institute of Chicago —— -V ~.x TEXT—Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together.—Heb. 10:25. I. The ideal prayer meeting never happens. If it is a good meeting, some- body has put , . f prayer and thought and work , Into it. The laws ' °* Brace ai e as > ( .JxjPH rigid, and as re | liable, too, as the ifiwl Ipibflpp laws of nature, i "Heaven may bo \ ha< * for the ask ‘ ing,” says the poet, \ hut the ideal V P ra y er meeting \ cannot. It Is as true here as else /JIPPI" where that “what soever a man sow- Jfyi | M idflTn cth, that shall he also reap.” Hence tho leader should prepare carefully. The hymns can be select ed; one person can bo asked to pray for the sick, another for the absent, and so on. Attention to details helps immensely. Hut especially should the leader wait upon God in prayer until his heart bums with love, and his soul is sensitive to the faintest whisper of the Holy Spirit. If athletes train for a boat race or a ball game, simply to secure the applause of people, sure ly the Christian can afford to train for a spiritual conflict where all the forces of heaven and hell are arrayed against each other, where eternal destinies are at stake, and where every part of the service is watched with keenest so licitude by "so great a cloud of wit nesses.” Not only the leader, but all the mem bers should prepare. Let them read, think and pray over the subject. Let them deny themselves dally, for a godly life is tho best preparation for an ideal meeting. Let them gather up spiritual strength all the week and concentrate it upon this service, mak ing it the supreme hour of the week, the hour When heaven comes down our souls to greet, Ami glory crowns the mercy-seat. 11. The Ideal prayer meeting has an object as well as a subject—a definite object, never to be forgotten by the leader or the workers. What is that subject? It Is not simply to have an interesting meeting. A service may be interesting, and yet be so devoid of spirituality as to sug gest only, “sounding brass and tinkling cymbals.” The real object is to awaken spiritual emotion, to bring the soul face to face with God, to kindle fires of devotion until tho altar is all ablaze with tho sacrifice of willing hearts, and there comes over the audi ence that Indescribable thrill and holy hush which betokens the presence of God, and which makes every heart ready to say, “O God, thy will be done.” This is the true object of a prayer meeting—to bring every soul to the point where it is willing to do its duty, so that decisions may be made and re sults may be secured, right then and there. At the close of a meeting where the theme was temperance the tide of feeling rose so high that 64 young men and women signed a total abstinence pledge and thereby com pletely revolutionized the temperance sentiment of that church. Whatever the subject of the meet ing, never lose sight of the object. Feeling which does not lead to action it of questionable value. 111. The ideal meeting is cheerful, social and hearty. Have a bright car pet on the floor, appropriate pictures on the wall, flowers on the table, and the room seated with chairs. Make it look as lirtle like a church, and as much like a home as possible. Lay off hats, wraps and overshoes. Have a “smile-’em-up committee” at the door to welcome strangers and to distribute the audience widely—the small boys apart from each other, the workers near the unconverted, and the timid ones near tho more spiritual. Into this “rest for tho weary” come with your thanksgiving and rejoicing. Make the v elkin ring with song. Let the most spiritual members lead in prayer until a strong devotional at mosphere has been created, which will make it easy for anyone to confess Christ. Be cheerful! Paul had his discour agements. but he kept them to him self. Cultivate the habit of handshak ing, and do not wait for an introduc tion. In short, strive to be One of the spirit chosen by heaven to turn Tlie sunnyslde of things to human eyes. IV. Tho ideal meeting is one in which all take part. There are some things that lie within tho reach of all. You can fill up the front seats, and thus support the leader. You can speak early in the meeting, and one sentence then is worth a dozen later on. Anyone can repeat a verse of Scrip ture, and if it is selected with care and prayer, Cod will use it to strength en th#saints and to carry conviction to sinners. Remember that th^'' w ‘‘* of God Is the sword of the it for a purpose, and expect
