Members of Congress even were heard to remark that they would not' choose between being : conscript and being a convict. U 1 contrary to all such gloomy view:, the work has been going smoothly on and the people have quietly adapted themselves to the la re quirements, till now the calling cf men under its provisions is regard ed as a mere matter of coir.e. The selective draft law is a sig nnl victory for sound government It recognizes the fundamental fact that man owes a debt to govern- ment, and is bound to pay that debt on demand that there can be no exemption so long as the man himself is physically and mentally fit to pay. Nothing but physical or mental unfitness can exempt any man from the obligation. But isn't there a further obliga tion resting upon the beneficiaries of government? Is life and per sonal service all of the debt? Getting down to the gist of the question, if the government has the right to demand the services of your son, has it not the right to de mand the services of your dollars as well? Is property more cacred in the eyes 'of the law than life? Life and personal service alone can never win the war. These must be backed up and sustained by the money and means of the nation. Hut is the burden to fall entirely on the government of raising these means of sustenance? Before many more months of this war have patsed, the people of this country are going to be rudely aroused to the fact that, viewed in the light of Justice and right, NOTHING should be exempt. Life it the most sacred of our poss essions. Yet life U demanded by our government, and we see no In- CHRISTIAN CHURCHES Of Garrard County Respond Generously To Men and Millions Morement. In the Men and Millions Move ment Emergency Drive, conducted by the Disciples of Christ, during the month of April, the Christian Churches of Garrard have done their part well. This drive was not put on to spcaknble cruelties anil vandalism of the hell hounds of the blood lust ing ruler of the German Empire, The early sessions of the body were held in the spacious auditor ium of the Seelbach, where lunch was served, Tuesday noon, and the meeting ended that night with an immense popular gathering at the First Christian church, where ('apt.

Mr., Moorman, county chairman. visited all the country churchu. save two, and gave instructive talks local committees in each congre gation and to these committees nnd their pastors much praise is due.

During one of his short speeches he struck a popular chortf when he said: "the man" who' shirks his duty to become a soldier when called is spoken of as a slacker. I want to say that the man who only gives $5.00 when he is able to con tribute $500.00 to the Red Cross is a dodger and a mean one at that.' and his hearers unanimously agreed that the terms should be applied to the deplorable class of individuals, who will not give their means when our boys are giving their lives to make the world fit to live in. Mr. Farnau has asked for a bus ness meeting at the court house next Monday evening and wants all who are interested in helping to put Garrard county "over the top" with her quota, to be on hand that evening, May Cth., at the court house. ...I f I ... ioe. wnicn snarc& neither wnmpn citUen of this government dare to nor children In thplr rnu-nnllv ami claim that his country has not tho savage warfare, right to his last dollar If that The speeches of R.

It is very gratifying to the friends of Rev. II. S. Hudson and quite a satisfaction to tho members of his congregation, to know that he has been called to preach every Sunday in the month, at tho Pres byterian church. Since their loca tion in Lancaster, Mr. and Mrs. Hudson have made a host of friends and the church, under his watchcare, has made splendid progress and all are glad to know that he will now devote his entire time here. Here tofore ho has been preaching one Sunday in the month at lluena Vista but tho last Presbytery relieved him of that charge.
