FIRE AT MCNARY
At 2 A. M. Wednesday morn
ing the inhabitants of MeNar,
were rudely awakened by tin
fire whistle and upon looking
out found the block of buildings
which contained the comqiissary
post-office, picture snow and
ware house enveloped in flames
It was so dry that tho flames
spread very rapidly and, excepi
the mail which was saved mad»
a clean sweep.
The loss is very heavy, probat
ly $100,000; but partiall covere«
by insurance.
We regret to chronicle this de
Struction, as every thing tha
was destroyed was needed an<
will be hard to replace, if indeec.
some of it can be repiaced at all.
Several, conjectures are put
forthas to the origin of the fir«
but the one that seems to pr<
vail among the leaders, is that i
was the work of an incendiary.

characteristic energy are atwoi4i

SLACKERISM OF AN
OTHER KIND
The terms "slacker and slack
erisra" are commonly .heard a
raong us and apply to men and
women who do not stand loyally
by the government in this world
war.
It has made many people push
up to do something worthy to
save themselves from tho odium
of such terms and estimation.
But what sort of slaokerism is
that which fails to attend church
and support its ordinances? Do
we think that we are strong by
rush and hurry? by big money
and loud talk? If so we are sadly
mistaken. We are strong only in
that degree that we are moral
ud spiritual and if we deny our
•Ives the source of this stiength
t is only a question of a little
ime till we are weak, hopeless
ind helpless.
While grateful for physical
strength with which to work
money with which to carry on all
,ur enterprises; let us still be
more grateful that God is access
able at all times; and when we
ire in right relation to him, the
Sundays do not seem lonesome,
nor does the call to worship seem
inimportant.
Our men are called upon to
1 ce this question fairly. How do
you expect for churches, Sunday
schools and other religious work
to go on with success and power
when you absent yourselves
from such services? Slackerism
here will ruin the morale of our
civil population. Wake up fellow
citizens and cut ont this evil a
uong us.
