Never Before in History Have They .Gjvjeh ' So Much
Space to Religious News, He Declares Rea- ,
TWO RINGS IN SAME
as!sBssB .sSsVsVsSski effSsSssW
sons for Thanksgiving Set Forth.
Fralslng the press of thli country for
'Its spiritual awakening," the Rev. John
Compton Ball, pastor of the MitropM
ltan Baptist Church, In a. sermon today
on "National and individual i:aso.i KT
Gratitude to God," said that this coun
try should not alone irlvo tn oka to Ool
for the great harvests that aru btlng
reaped, but for :hi womterfiil good the
iKwipapers are doing.
The paator said that It was an Insult
to American patriotism for a man to
consider Thanksgiving Day simply a
day off from work, and pleaded 'that tha
thousands of persons In Washington
who will urge a rest from their labors
on that day be thankful to Qod for It
In part the paator said: ."America la
the new hand that Is directing the des
tinies of nations. The harvests this yesr
are the greatest In the country's history.
We should be humbly thankful, for the
3,018,000,000 bushels of corn, the 1,417,000,000
bushels of osts, the 310.000,000 bushels of
spring wheat, all of which represent a
value of 19.000,000,000.
Thanks Given Newspapers.
'JWe should be thankful for the spirit
ual awakening of the American press.
Never before In the history of this
country has the newspapers devoted so
much space to religious news. The press
is doing a grand work and the people
should thank Qod for what tho.ninri.
papers have done and for whut they
can do. We should be thankful fur the
Panama canal, which will coat- this coun
tnrl376,0OO,0O0 before It Is completed
"There Is every reason why this
Thanksgiving should be the most, the
best in the history of the country for wo
have more things to be thankful for."
Practically all of the churchea wll
hold special Thanksgiving Day praise
services Thursday. For this reason but
few churches held special praise serv
In a sermon at the Mt. Pleassnt Con
gregational Church the Rev. Dr. Frank
Goodwin preached on "Is the World
Growing Better." He contended that
It was and to substantiate his conten
tion he pointed to he grown of civic
and religious freedom.
"Writing On The Wall."
"Tho Writing on the Wall" was th
subject of a sermon today by the Rev
Dr. James Shcra Montgomery. He said
In part: "Dclshasxar, the King, made
a great feast to a thousand lords, am
that night he was slain! Here Is the
Inglorious ending of an eventful lit
filled with privileges and opportunities
which were unusual; at the last he
meets his own.
"Just so with many a one this morn
ing here and nn the streets of ou
great city. He. this King, cannot smasl
the Heavenly gates with a hammer of
gold. The crisis Is at hand; conceal
ment Is futile; the haunting sense of
disaster Is upon him; It cannot be al
layed. He would hide himself In thi
darkness, like a toad under a atone,
but he cannot. The Immortality o
right Is, stirring beneath the wreck
and ruin of a human life; It will asaer
Itself, and no power can down It.
"The lesson of divine assertion Is wltt
us. Man has the power to stand enc"
the power to fall: but he has the rlglr
to stand and not the right to fall) There
Is a great world Between license ana
liberty. It Is to a man's disgrace that ,
ne allows nig noenies o run rroi-aut-ing
at his better self like a vampire."

, One of the most singular string of
coincidences ever accompanying the
loss and finding of jewelry In a crowded
thoroughfare, la that of the-Atexandria
ring mystery. Just how a person could
drop a ring at a point where, hundreds
of persons pass, have It picked up by a
second person, and, then, four hours
later, some one lose a second ring at
exactly the same point, and have this
ring found by the, same person. Is
baffling the amateur detectives of the
Virginia city across the Potomac.
Friday morning Miss Walling, society
editor of the Gazette, while . passing
down King street, found' the first of' the
rings. A moment later she entered the
Gasette office, noted the hours, which
waa exactly t o'clock, and then Inserted
an advertisement in the lost and found
column of the papers.
At noon Miss Walling left the office
for lunch, and, returning an hour hlter,
found a second ring In exactly the tamo
Slace where the first one was picked up.
he revised the "lost ad." In the paper,
and when she left the office In the after
noon, passed the same place again, hop
ing to find a third piece of Jewelry, but
It appears that the ring mine had been
The questions which the amateur de
tectives of Alexandria are asking them
selves In their efforts to locate tho
owner, are: .
Could both rings have been dropped
at the samo time? If so. why didn't
Miss Walling se both of them when
she picked up the man's ring If they
were dropped at the snmo time, how
could the lady'a ring have laid on a
sidewalk four hours, unseen? What pe
culiar fate Is It that causes a man to
lose a valuable ring In tho momlng. and.
when passing the same volnt four hours
afterwards, to drop a second one there?
