(Carried over from last -freek)
'The Memorial sermon was preached
at the Methodist church on last Sun
day morning, by Rev. Carnahan, from
the text Proverbs 14-34 "Righteousness
Exaleth a Nation but Sin is a Re
proach to Any People," tracing the
thought that only. so far as we, as a
nation,' "Yiad, stood for .the principles of
right^6ilsnefls had we gained that place
we ti&vt hold as a great nation, and
pushifiij home the fact that we dare
not refuse to accept part of the re
sponsibilities that we have come to the
stronger nations to help the weak ones
get oh their feet after the World war
that we must .advance as a servant of
the cause of humanity, or go down to
defeat as have the other civilizations
of history. The music was furnished
by a double quartette, with singers
from both Methodist and Presbyterian
choirs, with Miss Genevieve Young at
the piano. Flags and flowers were
the decorations, and the service was
a .fitting preparation for the Decora
tion day services, which were held
here on Monday afternoon.
OnMonday the Decoration day ser
vices were preceeded by .the annual W,
R, C. dinner at the Methodist church
-which was served to the members and
their fi*mUJes and the Corps' invited
guests, the soldiers of the Civil war,
(threp in number,) soldiers of the
Spanish-American war, (two in num
ber,)„and the soldiers of the World war,
about thirty-two of who were present,
Including two sailors. The. school

the nrincipat of "No Taxation Without

"Thai All Nations Have the Right to
Sail the Spas Without Hindrance
from' any Other Nation," from the
Mexfcan war the lesson that even a
nation whose usual impulse and an
pwer' had been toward righteousness
could be led into error find play the
part of the bully, quoting Lincoln
"That the blood of those killed on the
field* of Texas and Mexico would cry
to heaven against the man who was
•. responsible for this unjust war," from
the jjCivil war, "That nowhere under
the Rag should involuntary .servitude

whatever oppressed another nation was
a concern of the United States,"' and
he celled on the men present who had
seeniservice in the latest wfir to see
that Ithe victory they had won for
American ideals in that Vir was hot
lost in these times of peace,' that the
Amwlcan call to use his ballot us a

propriate to 'the occasion. The ritual
of the* American Legion was carried
out as, nearly as possible. The Charter
Oak band did great service as' usual,
giving many selections, playing at the
stand and again at the cemetery. The
celebration began abouj: 2 o'clock with
music by the band, arid this was fol
lowed by several pleasing numbers. An
especially pleasing thing, is the "set
ting up exercises" given by the girls
of the .Lutheran school, to the music
of one of the national airs. The work
showed good drill and good attention.
Two addresses were made and a third
one had been prepared.. Rev.-A. Am
stein spoke first, paying a tribute to
the men who had fallen in war. He
called any man great who fell in the
cause of his country, for not every man
had the nerve to face death. It was a
very pretty'tribute he paid, and we
were happily surprised to note the flu

Mrs. B. L. Wright and Marjorfe and

on some. church matters that he could

of America—bolshevism, wrongly ac

races and such things.

The United States has changed from an agri
cultural into a semi-industrial nation. Never
again will it see the day when 97 percent of
its population dwells or) farms. Yet the fact
remains that the United States must feed
itself, and the only way this can be done is
through intensive soil cultivation, made pos
sible by automotive machinery.
On the farms of the Middle West the* gaso
line tractor, truck, and automobile are multi
plying the productiveness of man-pbwer, and
are doing their part in furnishing an adequate
supply of food-stuffe^^?
Throughout this great section the Standard
Oil Cotnpany (Indiana) has developed a sys

oils. This system is based upon huge storage
depots, fed from three large modern refineries.^
