Roads Into Kendrick ENDRICK GAZETTE Give Your Home Merchant A Chance VOLUME 29. KENDRICK. LATAH COUNTY. IDAHO. FRIDAY. JANUARY 3, 1919 NUMBER I Sermon by Rev. Gregory "The Soul's Attitude." Isiah 40, 31. When Israel, by the route taken in the escape from Egypt, marched into what proved to be a blind alley, 1 the sea before the mountain heights; on either side, and the Egyptian hosts behind them, there was but! one resource; neither their frenzied ! fear, nor their wise energies, nor the inventive genius of their lead ers, could avail to rescue them, j They must stand still and see God work. "Stand still and see the sal- 1 vation of thy God*" was the order of Moses. When Cormwell was at Dunbar, with the opposing Scottish army in a practically unassailable position, and his own soldiers sick and starving, he had resolved on the retreat of his trodps, but in the dusk of the evening he saw signs of movement in the Scottish camp, The Scottish force was apparently leaving their vantage ground and coming to the lower English level, Cromwell flung his whole force up on the enemy and scattered them. As the sun rose on the following morning Cromwell exclaimed: "Let God aris" and let His enemies be scattered " It seemed to the great leader the working of God and the victory he received as God's gift. A father as reported in the Advo cate sometime ago said- "I was trvintr to save a wav ward son I ei y mg to save a waywaiu son. i had sought Divine grace, and pray all in vain. . . ° ers and tears were There was nothing vicious him; it was the old story—he was a victim and he realized it. One Saturday night I found him only to lose him. It was midnight and I sat in my office weary and faint, I had done my best, my heart was broken, my aching eyes fell upon these words: : Lie down and sleep, Leave it with God to keep, This sorrow which is part Now of thy heart, When thou dost wake, If still't is thine to take, Utter no wild complaint; Work waits thy hands; If thou should'st faint, God understands. "I said, I will. I went home and slept in peace. The next morning se( the way was opened and from that bright Sabbath morning through the abounding goodness of God, my by boy , was rescued and saved. It is this attitude the text por trays. It is the retreat into God, the waiting for Him. It was the neces sary position for Israel to take in ex\\e. There were no signs, in to ■events that their deliverance was at hand, but their faith was their re-i fuge. Nature, mightier than the . work of men declared to them the power of the supreme God. Theii own history bade them not forget j His interest in them. Our lesoui- of ces are like theirs. Out waywaid ness is apparent everywhere. His unconquering power which is ever seen in nature flooding us on every side is a rebuke to our selfishness. His presence in life is at all times a guarantee to us of His guiding hand in our frail lives. We do not need catastrophe to make plain the availability of God. When George Washington, with his ragged, hun- 1 gry, shivering army was waiting the winter out at Valley Forge and was found on his knees asking help of God. When Lincoln "the kindly brave, far-seeing man," before Get tysbrug, according to General Sick 1er, was closeted with God and is •sued from his communion sure of i victory. When Havelock marching to relieve Lucknow was up an hour before the camp was astir each morning to confer with God as to his campaign and listen to Him in the open word and upon his knees. When we have read many times of our noble boys bowing in prayer upon God. In those instances it was not a sign of weakness, but proof of insight into the source of power. If men in striking crises ; just before going into battle, we are compelled to teel that all these cases which meant so much to the world carrying such vast burdens, were entirely rational in waiting need such help, are ordinary men in life's regular business free from Will Have Good Road Cedar Creek ridge has declared itself unqualifiedly for good roads by sending in a petition to the county commissioners containing the names of over 90 percent of the land owners in that district. The petition contained 44 names and represented property valued at $263,214. Twenty-five names were sufficient to bring the oganization of the district before the commis sioners but the Cedar Creek people never do things by halves. I The petition will be presented to the county'commissioners at their I next regular meeting which will occur January 20, 1919. It asks that the people of the Cedar Creek dis trict be allowed to form a bonding district to vote bonds for the build ing of a hard surfaced road from that district to Kendrick. The value of such a road to the people of Cedar Creek can hardly be estimated. It will do more to ward developing the raw land in that section than anything else that could be done. It will also make the timber valuable as transporta tion facilities will be very good. The hardest part of the work is over for the Cedar Creek people, To get enough combined effort to begin the formation of the district is always the difficult part. The rest of the details yet to be attend - ed to are simply a matter of routine work. The rest of the ridges of the Potlatch country could do well by following the example of Cedar Oreev. - James Carl Gentry, youngest son 0 f Mr. and Mrs. William Gentry, : was born at Crane, Missouri, March fully attended Sunday school and school here and will be greatly mis se( j by his many friends and school mates. Death of Carl Gentry 31, 1909. He moved with his parents' to Big Bear ridge, in December of 1914, where he has lived until he j was called to a better Home, Dec ember 29th 1918, aged 9 years, 8 months "and 28 days. He has been ! ill for almost a month, and every- ! thing was done by kind hands to : ease his sufferings. He has faith The funeral service was conducted by Ur . Smith of Kendrick at the home. December 30th, and he was ta laid to rest at the Wild Rose Cemetery. He leaves a father, mother and the following brothers and sisters to mourn his loss: Ira, Dave, Les ter and Victor who live here; Ben, who is in military service at Camp i Lewis; Otis, who is serving in the a U. S. navy; Earnest and George at Seattle, Wash., Mrs. J. Tucker at Grape, Arkansas and Mrs. Val Bi itz of Seattle, Wash.

Is God necessary in the world's emergencies, and un necessary in its daily processes? When sorrow comes, or other dis asters and the currents of life run sluggishly or threaten to stop, God is resorted to. He serves as a stim olo, when the fires of life burn low. We need not look for the old phys i cal demonstration, but heart rap ture is not, and should not be thought of as an ancient relic. The revival for which we pray and yearn is one which is based on heart revival in which Gods delivering Will is declared, and His perfect love shed abroad. To the energetic toiler, who with fresh vigor, daily hear its music, and the eye to see its beauty-to all alike God comes with renewed strength. Let those ; who see, those who toil and those grapples manfully his life task, and tries to change the deformed act ual into the ideal; to the patient souls who live peaceably with the commonplace, and strain the ear to who walk with patience all wait upon God. .

Strange Acting Englishman The Star-Mirror published the fol lowing item about Charles Har reman, who has spent a greater part of the past year in Kendrick: "Charles Harreman, a native of England and subject of Canada, who was arrested a week ago on a charge of insanity, was discharged today by Judge Adrian Nelson of the probate court, after having been held in jail a week. Judge Nelson decided the man is not insane, or had recovered from his mental de lusionsand he was released with the understanding that he leave town. The man was employed by the Mark P. Miller Milling company of Moscow, and claims fo have hurt his back while working in the mill, He has had influenza and after his recovery claimed to be a doctor and went about Moscow, calling at pri vate homes and demanding to take the temperature of the women. His strange actions have been under the surveillance of the police force for six weeks. It is charged that he was in the habit of getting a lot of boys aroundihim and then frightening them by making threats. He calimed to be a detec tive and tried to "throw a scare" into a number of the S. A. T. C. men here. It is believed by many he is mentally unbalanced. The man is said to be a giant in size, standing six feet and four ....... ... iaches in height, and has a powerful j frame. The police force will feel relieved if he leaves town as he is ! said to have agreed to do. So far 1 , , , , , . : as known he has 1,0 Natives here, Still The Flu Continues Another flurry occurred in the flu situation, beginning last Friday.

Dear Dad:— I was supposed to have written you yesterday but was j too darn busy, so today will have to suffice. The ban on censorship has been lifted so now we can write almost anything. I can tell you now where I have been during my stay here in France, The First Air Depot is ten miles south of Toul. This sector is coni monly known as the zone of ad-1 vance. Of course this field has! never been under shell fire but we have had quite a few real air raids and that is just as bad if not worse, 1 have been all over the country within a radius of four hundred miles of this camp. Naturally 1 have seen quite a little country, I spent two months at the front dur ing the first big American drive at, Chateau Therry. I was attached to j the first provisional supply train hauling ammunition and reserve troops. We were under shed I fire a good bit of the time and I can as sure you 1 had quite a time. 1 drove 52 hours at one stretch that ; means without letting the motor get cold. There were times when they had to drag the dead bodies out of the road and fill up the shell holes so we could get through with the ammunition. the ammunition. Once when I was hauling reserve troops we were delayed on the road , ., , , u , and it became daylight. The Boche spotted us from their observation baloons and began shelling us. We had to split the train and let one truck go at a time across an. open place about a mile wide and then into a woods where we unload ed_ and drove back. We were in front of the light artillery then so you can imagine how close we were with our trucks. The one big re-! deeming feature was that when we hit our line of trucks we had a big, hot meal waiting for us. We work ed almost night and day for two months. After I came back from there I went to Paris where I stayed for al most a month and I certainly had a good time there. I drove on a truck train between Paris and the front for over a month. We made a re cord run with three-ton Packards— 212 miles a day. Less than a day and a half after I got off the Paris run I drove to the Verdun front. Almost two months ago I quite driving and took charge of a small truck train of twenty trucks. I stayed on that job tor about two weeks and was made assistant yard master for al most a month and then advanced to yard master and am holding that job now. This is the biggest trails portation depot in France and is growing every day. Over 400 men are working under me besides four teen truckmasters so you can see why I am so busy. Some of the fellows have been in 1 Metz since the war has stopped but so far I haven't been fortunate enough to go. We have over a thousand prison ers of war in this camp and about thirty of them are working here in the transportation so we use some that wi ;___ • ( , * _ Paul Petrick, 637 bon - oeigeam. i<mi icmm, Aero S.

As ever your - Dr. Kelly of Lewiston was sec ur ed to tide over the emergency in Kendrick, in the absence of Dr. Rothwell who is in Lewiston recup crating from the attack of influenza which he suffered several weeks ago. Dr. Kelly has been very busy attending to the flu cases in Kend rick and the surrounding country, It is very fortunate that his services could be secured» Dr. Herrington returned to Mos cow last week, leaving tne town without a physician for a short time until Dr. Kelly's arrival.

"We receiving a kingdom which j cannot be moved, let us have grace whereby we may serve God accept and Godly cessation of the clash of arms, today means only the shift of the base of ably with reverance fear." Heb. 12, 28. • "Bolshevism," we all tremble when we think what it is and has done to all Europe. But trembling will not answer the question. It must be a battle royal now. The operations. The enemy of mankind, the enemy of God and the enemy of the church can no longer kill by shot, shell shrapnel, gas bomb or submarine, but now the awful pro paganda of discontent, revolution and abolishment of all civilized ideals must be swept away. The terrible thing of all is that this sin j comes to us under the guise of socialism, which all men have re gard 'for, and when the monster is nut made welcome in American socialism, then it assails the church of the living God and attempts to ; inject into her sacred shrines, class idea. Put the man of means against the man who labors, and cause a split in the church of Jesus Christ, Heed the call of duty. "You re ceive a kingdom. Honor it, make 'every man, boy or girl, especially every soldier boy so welcome, treat him so nobly and honestly that he will want to enjov your kingdom with you. Jesus Christ had to come to re deem the whole world. Now come out of your old selfish shell and be a man at least and help ydur next neighbor without a selfish motive. Get away from that dollar idea and be a real professed Christian. I tell I you you are opening the church door that will admit Bolshevism as ! sure as fate. The church cannot be moved. I a to The doctrine can only be assailed, spoken against, ridiculed, persecut ed, even as our Savior was, but can not he moved. Forward, beware of radicalism. It is only fodder for Boshevism. Just get right with God and the church will stand un moved. Get on a firm foundation and the church will honor you, God will bless you and a mansion will await you. Thousands of professors will never get within sight of the mansion they talk about, because they arc not right with God. They ie, cheat, swear and cause dissen of tion. They are Bolshevism ailve'in the church. Now- to serve God is not jo parade your religion before men, but to call men like Jesus did, to love men, to help men, to win men and to urge them to become Christian men like Christ. Forget your mon ey, forget your labor, forget that you are employer or employe and get together and thus we can expel all ideas of the accursed Bolshe vism. Awake, help save democracy and all noble ideas which are now being threatened. The church has a part, has a care. Help u$ to prove her immutable and eternal with all her great burden of souls saved by Jesus, our God. ________ | Mitcham Receives Presents c.pient of a bountiful * . Christmas presents fro , ____ J.
