Roads Into Kendrick KENDRICK GAZETTE Give Your Home Merchant A Chance VOLUME 28. KENDRICK. LATAH COUNTY. IDAHO. FRIDAY. DECEMBER 20. 1918 NUMBER 51 Sermon by Dr. Smith "The Hidden Force" ! "Prove what is acceptable to the j Lord." Eph. 5, 10. There is a hidden force is every body's life, for good or bad. The secret of conquering evil and hold ing fast to the good in you lies A wholly within your own self. You can "be a man or mouse." The secret power is not in the flesh or in the blood but is within the soul. That soul like the bird on the wing which takes in great draughts of air and then forces it into every bone and tissue, giving it lightness that it may be easily borne up that it can long be on the wing. So the soul takes in great draughts he to of spiritual goodness from the Holy Spirit that it may live long in the land and come finally to the haven of rest. So then life, eternal life, summed up means, this life plus the power of the spirit in us. This prison house of clay by this dynamic force of the Holy Spirit becomes the house of immortality. This power comes to us by a great price—nothing less than the blood of Jesus. The greatest battle of the late war, into which our brave boys went and won. was not fought out j on the field of battle first, but in the very heart of every brave sol dier boy. He called upon God, he called upon the Holy Spirit to his aid, and then wounded, gassed or even stair., he won. No one in America knew the evils our boys must face on the battle front and its awful surroundings. Come then sweetheart, mother, father, brother and sister, pray God to find your soldier boy and that he may prove that acceptable will of God. Sin of every sort confronts the soldiers. He is worth more than gold or silver to us. Let us then pray for him and do for him what God has put in our hands. Let him know that he can be right, good, noble and true. He will do it if you want him to. When he returns be ready to furnish him wholesome amusement, manly positions and proper places for his spare hours. Do you realize it, when these sol diers come home their hearts will appeal pathetically for needed help, j . a .. , good influences, amusement and solid enjoyment? You can give it to them. Being a good man or woman, as you ought tobe. Will you come to the fore and with right principles, prove to the man that you have already proven that ac ceptable will of God. Our battle to clear the way for our brave boys at home, is even greater than any ever fought on the field of blood. Come, be courage ous, patriotic and no slacker. Shame on the church members who will be so busy chasing dollars that he will not give his best self for the soldier boy. The world physically and spiritually is growing better. Physically we are fighting disease at every corner, draining swamps, killing the mosquitos and every germ and microbe. We are making life worth living. So now come, let us clean up the jjm>ls of iniquity, the rivers of temptation and the insects of lust and the microbes of evil thought and make our spiritual life worth living. Fight on, over come evil in spite of the many croakers who think and say "You are too pure." "Put I ! oay luuc.ctu« .jette. im. on the whole armour of God" and win, by proving the acceptable will of God. We can over come the impossible, i we have done it in the matter of temperance, in the areoplane, in the wonderful motor system and on the field of battle and now we can do so in the heart of man, by proving the acceptable will of God. Where are you lined up, on the right side or the wrong side? It makes a difference. Leave the vie- i tories with God, you fight and you will win. Get sin out of your heart and the love of God into it and when our soldier boy comes home he will love you, follow your lead and bless you and be a saved man. "Is it worth the candle? You must , . , ,, answer by your proving the will of God. The Lord bless you. Cashed Worthless Check A stranger, giving the name of Fred Larson and representing that he was from Troy, tried to cash checks at nearly every store in Ken drick Thursday afternoon and even tried to cash one amounting to $150 at both banks. At the Ken drick Store he cashed one amounting to $25 and at the Red Cross Pharm acy tried to buy a nine dol lar kodak and give a fifteen dollar check in payment. Mr. Herres, however, re fused to accept the check and the stranger left the store without tak ing the check with him. The check was made out to Fred Larson and was signed J. J. Smith. The Kendrick Store Co. learned about six o'clock that the check was bogus and notified the authorities at Juliaetta, Moscow and Lewiston. Constable Hampton arrested two men at Juliaetta about seven o'clock last evening, one of them being the man who passed the checks and the other a man who was seen in com pany with the check raiser here. Sheriff Campbell notified Mr. Ham-; pton to hold the men there until he could take them in charge. j T ractor School at University In a recent survey of the state it was found that one of the most im portant factors determining the suc cess or failure of a tractor as an in vestment was the ability of the operator. Many men get the ex perience in operating during the busy season when time is precious, This is expensive in more ways than one. The loss of time when the work is pressing and the rapid de - 1 terioration of the machine due to lack of experience and knowledge in care and operation. In the two week's school to be given, a man may secure a know ledge of his machine which will save him much loss during the com ing seasons. To the prospective buyer it gives an opportunity to compare the different machines as to material used, principle of con struction and the methods of oper ation. Lectures will be given daily and ,, ^ „ .. , all parts illustrated. Operation and , , . j I shop work will occupy the remaind ! er of the time. If you have a tractor that is in need of overhauling bring it and overhaul it during the school. Drop a line to J. C. Wooley of the a Agricultural Engineering Depart- j ment telling him that you will be present January 27 to February 7, 1919. , ., , . t « .ill hospital, at Lewiston at five o clock ; Death of Ruth Seals Miss Ruth Seals died at the White I Wednesday morning.

Lutz Has Resigned The many friends of the >-j fami , y in Kendrick will be Lutz very sorry to learn that they have decid ed to leave here. Mr. Lutz sent in his resignation this week and it will take effect the first of the year. He has several offers of positions in Snokanp but has not decided in Spokane hut nns not aeciaea definitely what he will do until he has made further investigation. Mr. Lutz is a very able banker having had twelve years experience in the various departments of banking, His record here is exceptionally good. The Lutz family have made many warm friends here who will regret ' exceedingly to see them leave. H. B. Emmel Here H. B. Emmel, Y. M. C. A. sec retary, who has been stationed in New York City for the past five months, returned Monday night to spend the holidays with his family here. He wrote to them not to ex pect him until after Christmas, so his home-coming was a glad sur prise to them and to his many'warm friends here. He expects to leave the last of this month for Seattle, as he is due there the 30th, and will embark for Russia where he has a position in the Y. M. C. A. work. Mr. Emmel left here last spring for New York City, expecting to immediately be sent overseas to France for Army Y. work. On ar riving in New York he was inform ed that the Government had order ed his passport canceled. This was a complete surprise to him and to the members of the Y. M. C.A. and it was several months before he was informed of the reason for the Government action. It developed that someone had accused him of dis loyaty, but from whom this report origiated and from whence it came, no one but the Government and the pro German propagandist who made the charge knows. Mr. Em mel 's friends here know how utter ly absurd the charge was and that there could be no just cause why anyone should put this cloud over him. His unqualifiedly loyal spirit was known here and before leaving for New York he was one of the most energetic war workers in this community. The charge would seem ridiculous if it had not carried with | it such serious consequences, After five months of perseverance, and by the assistance of several in fluential friends he succeeded in clearing up the cloud'and the Gov ernment had to acknowedge that it was a false one but gave no partic ulars as to its origin. However, the trials which this big hearted Y. worker had to en dure were not without their com pensation. The fight which he made to clear himself brought him into prominence among some of the leading Y. M. C. A. officials and as a recompense for what he had gone through and to show the con fidence'in which he was held by his Y. M. C. A. brothers, he was given a very responsible and promisftig position as a specialist in physical i culture and is being sent to Russia where he will be in charge of re construction work, or rather, in the furtherance of "American Pro paganda" or "Americanism" in that unenlightened country. His work will be somewhat in the na ture of missionary work but will reach farther than that ^d will be primarily to educate the people there into the spirit of American | principles. It will be a broad field to as is is It to Mr. and Mrs. Clarence Harris of Bear ridge are visiting at the Jim and is work that is wonderfully suited to Mr. Emmel's abilities. He has enlisted for two years and will probably have to be away from his family during this time, al though it is possible that after the first year he will be allowed to have them with him. In the mean time they will remain here. Linden Items Ball home. Miss Heida Kellberg spent Satur day evening at the F. home. There will be Christmas tree at school on Christmas eve. is invited.

I think nothing is more irritating to the nerves than bad manners, and nothing is less justifiable. In the long run, good manners are as easy as bad ones, for while it may be a good deal harder to be mannerly than to be ill mannerly, when one is through with the good manners he is done with them; but when one gets through with bad manners he is just where he begins to see what should have been different. The text which I gave says, "About the time of forty years suffered He their manners in the wilderness." It is high time we were learning courtesy of the heart and brain, and weighing our influences] ana duties to those with whom our manners will have bearing. A man may go about a selfish and extravagant life with the thought of it being his privilege, and at the same time re velling in that which shoud go to procure support to loved ones, and passes out to his neighbor a code of manners which will cause his fam ily to be held at distance, and they bow their faces with shame. The sooner men and women come to realize the value of high ideals and their own influences, the better it will be. When people learn that behavior is a thing that flows like living water out of the deep wells of the heart, the better it will be for society. There is a type of bad manners, when you don't remember that other people have feelings, when you don't remember that other people have shadows and sufferings, tho they don't show them. Good manners would put the best construction on things in stead of the worst, speak kindly of people rather than harshly. Here was a people called Israel, God had done all sorts of things for them. He had given them liberty. Liberty is the gretest gift the hu man soul possesses except God. and God is another name for liberty. He had brought them out of bond age, He had broken the chariot wheels of the pursuing Pharaoh, God led this people to freedom. He gave them the choicest gift his hand has yet produced, and they never so much as turned their faces toward God and said, "I thank you." They were given a leader. Moses came with out any large gift of language, but with beautiful humility and a clean spirit and trust in God, he led them out of slavery into manhood, he brought them not into conquest so much as into a land of plenty. God made them to have a great mission; what is there like that. If you have no business in the world you will be worthless. But through the temple of service in your life be stately and beautiful, if the Master has no door of entrance your life will fail. He said, "I will bless the world through you," and they never said for thy largeness of mercy and thy tender kindness , "we bless Thee." This may look incredible, but it is the truth, we are today no better than Israel. We do what they did. We are guilty of ingratitude and thoughtlessness. Adoration of low things and lack of high ideals. Do we remember God? Just as God canno t make flonwers bloom with planting seeds so He cannot make courtesies bloom except people let Him plant the seeds, and tend and grow them. Think of the beauty • of the flower but the seed must fall the ground there lay until spring, wnen there will be beauti ful bues and pinks as will make the Sun glad. Wei 1 after that fashion you are to let the seed of courtesy fall in the soil of your heart and \ grow upward ' i - 1 Not Much Flu Here No new cases of flu have been re ported in Kendrick since early last' week and nearly all those who have been ill with the disease have re covered and are able to be öutdf doors. If no new cases develop by ...... , , ..... the end of this week there will be no flu in Kendrick.
