HAROLD TRASK J Boost For Better Roads Into Kendrick GAZETTE Give Your Home Merchant A Chance VOLUME 28. KENDRICK. LATAH COUNTY. IDAHO. FRIDAY. NOVEMBER 8. 1918 NUMBER 45 A Message by Dr. Smith To all believers,in Christ. Text—"Joab fled to the Tabernacle of the Lord and caught hold of the horns of the A Iter,_ Benaiah said "Thus Saith the King Come Forth", "Nay," said Joab. So many of us are deprived the jAorivilege of our Sunday message "that it will be quite appropriate to get a sermonette through the helpful press. Acts like Joab's doing are daily being enacted. The slaying of just men, Princes, like Abner and Am ara is sheer treachery. Then when caught in their own prepared net j for another, they rush to the altar; cling to the horns and cry for mercy. Such is the cry of the "Kaiser." Today he is slaying the world's noblest manhood; crushing innocent Belgians, betraving Rus sian womanhood and destroying the dedicated temples to God. And Now, death and all its accompanying J terrors facing him he rushes to the temple of God and fastens on the cermonial horns of the altar, crying for mercy, "Kamerad."* But the King of Heaven and the King of Democracy cry out "Come forth." And be assured he will come to his deserved end even if he has said "Me und Gott" and "Dutchland Uber Alles." He, like Joab, like Judas and all hypocrites must come to one end. The reward of his sin will be his death. Right eousness and Democracy will slay all such enemies of God, Country and Mankind; they must come forth and meet their doom. These warn ings are to all men and nations, "Your sins will find you out." Years of practiced sin bring ruin and death, so Germany can now affirm. Relentless warfare nev er affirms truth when treachery lies' hidden beneath. Power and dom inion will be crushed by the hands of righteous indignation. Then: I. We must not trust in external religion such as ceremonies, rituals, altars and ordinances, for they are only shadow's that lengthen as they are cast over the waves until they are lost in eventide. A shadow is only a back cast of the light and you can chase it or run from it, it only remaining until thick darkness swallows you and your death is made sure. Cling not to the cere monial horns of the altar, but come to the fullness of faith as it dwells in Christ, away from deception, hatred and determined destruction of your fellowman and come to Christ, the Holy Spirit and God. II. The spiritual life leads to the Altar of God's love and gives life. Joab clung to the appendage of the alter and died, so will be the end of every unfaithful pretender. Your safety is then in clinging to the altar of Faith in God, who says "I will never leave you nor forsake you. Whosoever cometh unto me will in no wise be cast out" Take hold on the great Atonement and live, it will soon come. The command "Come forth saith the King", and then in glory you will stand having shown mercy, lived truthfully and honest. Friends come forth and let us all pray more earnestly than ever be fore that our boys, our dear boys, who are at the front protecting our homes, our country and our faith, let us pray that they may ever be pure and good and that they may re turn to us again. Be in earnest. Keep the Home Fires Burning which are, Faith in God, the Gospel of Christ and the religion of the country. Read I Kings 2, 28 to 34; Psalm 94 and conclude by reading Psalm 37. Word From Henry Mielke The Gazette received a short letter from Henry Mielke, who is stationed at Camp Hancock, Geor gia. He is at the officers' train ing camp for machine guns ("Sui cide Club") and states that prac tically every minute of his time is taken up. He was one of fifteen men from Camp Meade to be selected for the officers'training. His camp is onjthe outskirts of Augusta. Result of The Election The entire republican state ticket with the exception of Nugent, for U.'S. Senator, was elected in Idaho.

The non-partisan legislative ticket was defeated by about three to one. Carl Smith, democratic candidate for county commissioner leads his ticket but was over 300 votes be hind Elmer Paulson. Campbell was defeated for sheriff by Woody by something over 400 votes. The county gave its usual over whelming vote for Congressman French, the tabulations showing he received 4 to 1 over his opponent, Purcell.

To Be Another Liberty Loan Secretary of the Treasury McAdoo ! has announced that, no matter what the results of the pending overtures ! for peace may be, there will be an ! other Liberty loan. To use his ex pression, "We are going to have to finance peace for a while just as ; we have had to finance war." 1 There are over 2,000,000 United States soldiers abroad. If we trans port these men hack to the United I States at the rate of 300,000 a month, it will be over half a year before they are all returned. Our army therefore, must be maintain ed, victualed, and clothed for many months after peace is an actuality. The American people, therefore, having supported the Liberty loan with a patriotism that future his torians will love to extol, will have an opportunity to show the same patriotism in financing the just and conclusive victorious peace ! whenever it comes. Not for a mo ment, however, is the Treasury acting on any assumption that peace is to come soon. Until peace is actually assured the attitude of 1 the Treasury and the attitude of the whole United States Govern ment is for the most vigorous pros ecution of the war, and the motto of force against Germany without stint or limit will be acted up to until peace is an absolute, accomp lished fact. One more Liberty loan, at least, lis certain. The fourth loan was popularly called the "Fighting Loan"; the next loan may be a fighting loan, too, or it hiay be a peace loan. Whatever the con ditions, the loan must be prepared for and its success rendered certain and absolute. Begin now to pre ! pare to support it.. What Do You Think Is My Share? By Bruce Barton He is a conscientious gentleman, who honestly wants to do right. And he came to me shaking his head. "I want to do my full part in this United War Work Campaign," he said. "Do you think a hundred dollars is my share?" And I told him that it would be hard for anyone but himself to decide. "There are so many different ways of looking at money," I said. A hundred and seventy millions looks big at first glance. It is forty times what Jefferson gave for the Louisiana territory. It's a dollar and seventy cents for every man, woman and child in the land; it's more than eight dollars and a half for every household. "You can figure it on that basis," I told him. "On the basis of dollars and cents. Or you can figure it on the basis of boys." "Of boys?" he questioned. "I do not under stand." It's less than fifteen cents a day for each of our soldiers and sailors," I answered. "Fifteen cents a day to give them warmth and comfort and entertainment, and lectures, and games, and the thought of mother and of God." "Fifteen cents a day for a boy: two for a quarter a day. How many boys will you take ?" And his eyes kindled. "I think I could take ten at least," he said. He drew his check book out. "Figure it out and tell me the price," he said. "I want you to give them the best you've got. What is it going to cost?" "—for ten boys, for a year, at two for a quarter a day?" So I figured it out for him: suppose you figure it out for yourself. Mrs. Adam Alber The following obituary of Mrs. Adam Alber, who died Oct. 25, was received too late for publication last week: Augusta Auer Was born in Zurich, Switzerland, July 28th, 1846 At an early age she, in company with her parents emigrated to America, the' family settling in Illinois.

Her husband, W. D. Carmichael and son George, age ten, were also afflicted with influenza and it was through her unceasing care of her husband and little son that her strength gave out so that she was unable to recover from the first at tack of the disease. Mrs. Carmichael was 30 years cf age at the time of her death. She married Mr. Carmichael at Lewis ton .October 29.

H. Thorp of White Bluffs and another sister, Mrs. C. Sampson of Moscow, Bailey Raises Prize Corn Jack Bailey brought several sam ples of field corn to this office that would do credit to the best corn raising section in the country. He secured seed enough from a brother in the east, to plant a quarter of an acre. From this patch this season he harvested 20 sacks of beautiful yellow corn. The ears are large and the kernels very deep and well ma tured. The Gazette Office has a sample ear of corn brought from Kansas last year. It created con siderable admiration as it was a jumbo ear. It is oversadowed in size by the corn raised by Mr. Bailey on Texas ridge. One ear weighed just a pound and three quarters. It isn't thorougly dry but allowing for a quarter of a pound j shrinkage it will still weigh a pound and a half and that's no small ear of Drug Store Burglarized Last Sunday evening the Red Cruss Pharmacy was entered be tween the hours of seven and eight o'clock through the back window and robbed of 20 boxes of candy, 4 boxes of cigars, 1 caddy of cigaret tes, rings from the jewelry depart ment valued at $150 and money taken from the cash register a mounting to $10. Before morning the burglars were apprehended and were found to be W. B. Van Wert the local horse doctor and Norman Jacobson, painter and paperhanger ■ of this place. Mr. Newton returned to the store Sunday night about 8 o'clock and noticed that the articles were mis sing from the stock. He called Mr. Herres and asked if the articles had been sold. Learning that they had not, he knew that a robbery had been committed. He called Sheriff Campbell who arrived on the scene a few hours later. In the meantime Constable Chandler, Mr. Newton and Mr. Herres had made a search , on their own account and their efforts revealed that Norman Ja cobson, who was said to be under the influence of liquor, had in his possession a box of the stolen candy, Just before the 9:05 night passen ger train left for Lewiston Van Wert was seen passing a box of candy to a party on the station plat form. He then left for Lewiston. Sheriff Campbell upon hearing of the circumstance decided that Van Wert was his man. He took a car for Lew'ist«n, arriving there about 4 a. m., and located him in the Ivanhoc hotel. Upon search ing his room he found the box of jewelry in a dresser drawer. Upon his arrival in Moscow Van W ert confessed that he- committed the j robbrey. Jacobson was taken to | Moscow' Monday morning by L'e puty Sheriff John Hall, and there lodged in the county jail with Van Wert. The stolen articles were found cached under the Kendrick Roch dale warehouse, Sunday night. Temple building last week. Local Lodges Keep Bees Thos. Sturdevant and N. Brocke secured 84 pöunds of sugar sub stitute in the loft of the Fraternal For the past three years there has been a swarm of wild bees in the loft of the building and during all this time these busy little workers have been putting away their surplus products so that two enterprising Kendrick citizens could secure it at the logical moment to help win the war. To get the* honey, however, it was necessary to smoke out the bees with sulphur and this caused their untimely death, It is said that wild bees from a strong swarm will rob the smaller hives of tame bees and (bus the tame bees will die during the win ter of starvation, so that the death of this swarm could not be consider ed a calamity from a conservation standpoint. It was also thought best to extinguish this little colony in to guard against a contin gency that might arise during the solemn and mysterious rites of con ferring degree« in the various local lodges. During the winter when the cus todian of the building, N. Brocke, started a fire preparatory to a lodge meeting, the warmth brought to life the hibernating little insects and they had a habit of dropping down through the ventilators of the ceiling, probably for no other pur pose than to start their sluggish blood to circulating and to bask in the warmth of the room. Eaves droppers, however, are net allowed within the gates of the various sec ret orders so tint it wrs impossible a to tile the lodge properly in their presence. Then too, it was feared that during the solemnity of confer ring some of the degrees, the can didate and a bee might form a con tact which would cause unnecessary confusion within the temple. ; L. G. Peterson was a Moscow itor Wednesdav. 3 _ 'Lest We Forget' By Rev. Gregory We are in the great whirlpool of events and were it not for abiding faith in the Great Friend of sin .ners* we might be swept from our reasoning. We look back just a span, and we see a world in appar ent peace; almost without warning we are informed that war is raging: homes desolated; where peace and plenty had been, there now reigned sorrow, grief and desolation. Men have given themselves over to a reprobate mind, their mission ac cording to God's plan is lost sight of. In forgetting the principles which change not, man permits sin to flood his soul; benumb his feel ines and present to his mind rea sons for pnrsuing his course of ruin, The dominating thought of America has been "win the war". We have seen the great cordon of opposition to human liberty give way link by link; and we are compelled to feel that the Mighty Balances are still weighing accurately. The vision of spiritual things is dimmed because material things engage our atten tion; the days are crow'ded, there is no time for meditation upon our duties and obligations toward God. The still small voice is not given a hearing, neglecting the Spiritual, selfishness dominator— no stirving for improvement or thought for others. When we read of the brave here ism of our boys, in defence of Lib erty, our hearts leap within us; but alas, when we read the names in the casualty list, we ask, How long, Oh! how long? If the war does nothing else it is teaching us obedience, self-discipline and the joy of service. Many are calling "Hero am I, send me." The close of the world war will be the opening of a door of greater opportunity than the church has ever known, to give to the world of mankind the gospel in its working - order. The churh is already plan- ning to meet the needs of the hour. The entry of our nation into the war, with singleness of purpose— that being to defend the oppressed without remuneration, has been an object lesson of world wide recog nition, an army of trained fully equipped men, of which the greatest Christian nation under the canopy of heaven may well be proud. Jt is not surprising that the people of every country, having studied the conduct of men, and knowdng what they stand for, are asking for the same sort of leadership that the moral forces of America have had. The door is swinging wide open for service and it would be nothing short of a crime for the church to neglect the opportunity. Hence, " no easy hope of life shall bring us to our goal, but iron sacrifice of body, will and soul. Morgan Killed in Action Walter Morgan, son of Mr. and Mrs. G. E. Morgan of Juliaetta, was killed in action in France on September 12. His parents receiv ed the message conveying the sad news, last week. This is the first fatality reported in this immediate community. Guard House For Him Q. M. Serg. Ray Steele, of Camp Lewis, says this is the best war story told thus far. A San Fran-* cisco life underwriter was recently drafted into the army and immedi ately upon his arrival in camp a dairy was started. The following is from his book: "They took me from a good job and put me in the army. They took away my good clothes and gave me olive drab and* heavy clothing. They took away my name and gave me a number, No. 494. They make me go to bed when I am not sleepy and make me get up when 1 am. They make me g 0 to church which I never did be fore. The other day the preaeher said: 'We will now turn to No.^494. 'Art thou weary, art thou footsore?' and I said 'Hell yes' and they gave me ten days in the guard house."
