The DAILY STAR-MIRROR
Published every evening except Sun day, at Moscow, Idaho. GEO. N. LAMPHERE, Publisher. The Official Newspaper of the City of Moscow.

After today The Star-Mirror will not issue bulletins. The practice which be gan shortly after the present editor took charge of the telegraphic news, will be discontinued. When the war news became so in tensely interesting bulletins were issued and posted on the front windows of The Star-Mirror office. They proved very attractive and hundreds of persons saw and read them daily. Then merchants, who saw the crowds gathered around these boards, wanted them to post at their stores and these were made. The demand increased until nine copies of each bulletin were made. They went to Pullman, to the barracks where the sol diers are quartered, to the university and to business houses in Moscow. There can be no doubt that a number of persons who could well afford to sub scribe for the paper read these bulletins which cost nothing and did not support the paper. It hurt the circulation of The Star-Mirror to some extent, but the serv ice gave to the people of Moscow the news just as soon as it reached town, and The Star-Mirror was glad to serve the people of its home town. The preparing and posting of the bul letins required a vast amount of work. Three times a day, at the very least, and some times six times a* 1 day the bulletins were written and posted. The editor prepared the bulletins then called up each of the merchants who got them and informed them that the bulletins were ready. This required much time and labor. Now that the war is over and the i people are not so anxious about the news! from "over there" the practice will be Irom over there, the practice um ne discontinued. We know the people ap preciated the bulletins and we hope they will realize how much extra work was entailed by preparing and posting them, and that they will not feel disappointed because they are to be discontinued. Star-Mirror will contain all of the latest news furnished by the Asso ciated Press and will be delivered to the homes of its patrons in Moscow as early The paper as possible every evening, is working hard for Moscow and trying to give the people a better news service than they have ever had. If it gets the patronage it ought to have the service, and it will be improved and increased. We believe, as many of our patrons lave told us and as other publishers have repeatedly said, that "J he Star Mirror is a credit to Moscow" and de serves all the patronage it gets. to to to Tomorrow will be a day that will go down in history as marking the triumphal entry of the soldiers of the Allies in im portant enemy strongholds. Metz, Strass bnrg and Bucharest are to be entered in triumph by the civil and military repre sentatives of the conquering nations, and from tomorrow the reign of Germans in these places will be a thing of history, to Bs PS The democrats in congress evidently plan to retain control of the senate. They have started contests against the seating of two republicans who were de clared elected on November 5. if these men are denied seats in the senate the democrats will retain control. Politics ■was evidently not permanently 'ad journed." Sr- Pa K Won't the people who refused to con tribute to the united war fund—the fund that goes to care for, amuse and enter tain our soldiers who brought peace to the world—feel a little ashamed when they meet those soldiers face to face, when the victors return? We are told in today's dispatches that crews of German submarines declare they will stay with the kaiser, send them to Holland to be interned until the Allies get ready to try them lor murder. Well, One reason why the truth finds it so hard to overtake a lie is that the lie is short and to the point, while the truth insists upon a summary of 3,789 words and a full report of 365 pages with two volumes of indeces.—New York Evening Post.

Text: "So Fight I," Cor. 9:26. Life in all ages has been earnest. Life in these first years after we have come up out of the baptism of blood is freighted with responsibili ties and duties. The highest obliga tion which these years bring is to show our relationship to society. The greatest crime is indifference and no true man can withdraw himself from this imposed duty, can isolate himself from those great principles whose settlement speak for or against human progress. We are truly" rich in the legacy Time has bequeathed to us but with this power a wonder ful charge has been given, a sacred trust has been assigned to our keep ing. The power of moulding the future we hold in our hands. For the thoughts and the ideals which shall control the action and dominate the future life of this century are now taking root in our lives. There are crucial periods in every nation s life which mark the adoption oi- rejection of policies or ideals from which time dates the inculcation of seeds which ingender political degre- i dation, corruption and dissolution; or; mark an infusion- of new life which I raises its people to a greater freedom | and lays its tribute upon the altar of Progress. „ , , Germany dreamed. She was the P rou d mistiess of the woild. But her d , re T wa /.^ e P r ° duct g* fitful s i um i, er of intoxication. She drank at the fountain of Conquest. An insati ate ambition for mastery and triumph j )Y a s fostered. It infused, itself into ] life and thought. Avarice, repine, . craven ignomy and baseness were its j offspring. The heart of that proue. j nation was eaten by the cancer of I militarism. The altruistic philosophy j of Jesus the Nazarene was cast aside for the materialism of her higher critics. She has smirched the pages of history with her crimes, the most awful blot of all the years. Another nation was born in hearts of its hardy forefathers. The principles of liberty and equality opportunity were written. Time passed. That nation whose corner stone was religious freedom whose foundation was the immutible pnn ciples that all men are equal, now emerges, smoke-begrimed from this grave conflict waged in defense these principles, energies through sac nfice, but triumphant! Today Am erica stands in the forefront of the world s great nations and when she shall have shaken off menacing para sites clinging to her, with a manifest destiny will lead then on toward the coveted goal of political perfection— the happy Home of a Mighty People! You see the relation of my text, Paul fought. Christ is more than an ideal. He is Life. Paul had that life, Trim there is much m an ideal. A mastering, dominant purpose whi-' pervades, controls, animates and di rects every energy of a life. It is the silent gentle working force which impells us to activities which set in operation the latent powers of our being and beget within us aspirations and hopes which speak in a voice not to be stilled. But Christ is all this and more. He is the highest ideal and then it is the Nazarene that takes us by the hand and leads us up the Way. . We list to His counsels and with the poise of Jehovah's sons we walk securely into the Realm of Day. Twice victor returning with full num ' 3ers - DEAN HAMILTON, Minister, Baptist Church. "The Lord Reigneth; Let the Earth Rejoice. Ps. 97-1. The world is filled today with the rejoicings of Peace. In the struggle that has ended brute force has been arrayed against righteousness. The mailed fist has encountered the divine forces of God in the awakening of an outraged humanity and has met its doom. God has given us the victory; justice and honor are once more as sured a lasting place in the social order. Humbly grateful that we have had some small part in carrying out the plans of God, we lift our hearts unto Him in praise and thanksgiving that the war has ceased and that we are once more to enjoy the blessings of Peace. The war lords of the world have had their day—Cain and Esau and Senacherit and Wilhelm and all their kind. From the time that Lubal-cain first fashioned the molten metals into w«yipons of war until todrv the sword has been held aloft as the min'istrant justice between tribe and tribe, darf and clan, nation and nation. But the day of the sword 'is ended. Such men as Caesar and Napoleon and Hindenburg have proved unworthy of world leadership and incompetent to PETER SWENSON, FARMER OF NEAR DEARY IS DEAD Peter Swens.on, a farmer living Little Bear ridge, died Wednesday from influenza.

Brute force whether in the slave drivers last or in the massed legions of a nation's army belongs to the ages that are gone. In the new era that is to come our first need is to reorganize the reign ancy of God and to order the affairs of individual, social and national life by the wisdom of His word. Democ racy must be continued with the will of God else it will react and render asunder the solidarities of society. In the ultimate analysis the problem of our national relations is a problem of religion. It is faith and hope and love that will finally cast out the demons of hate and war and finally direct the world from its calvary to its resurrection. WAYNE S. SNODDY, Pastor, Presbyterian Church.

"And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also." St. John 14:1-3. The fact that our churches are closed reminds us more forceably that whether at home or in the trenches or a t the battle front, we ar all in the presence of death.

A nrivat» celebration of Holy Com munion will be held in S. Mark's church tomorrow at 10:30. Special prayers for the sick, and thanksgiving for peace, will be offered. Church member* are aaked to spend the period (10:80 to 11:00) in quietness and wfaare possible, to join spiritually in the service. Our worship is not dependent upon our physical location in church; it is a matter of mind and spirit. It must be understood that there will be no congregation in church; the congregation will be in their own homes. The church bell will be rung before the service; church doors will be locked. I shall be glad to conduct short services In any private home. Is there possibly some connection be tween our national neglect of God and the continuance of the edidem'ic?

Carl Smith, fire chief, asks the people of Moscow to inspect the flues in their homes more frequently. Mr. Smith says that by examining them night, with the lights turned off, one can easily discover if the plaster mortar between the bricks is loose displaced, especially if there is a good fire, for the sparks can be seen then through the holes if any mortar missing. Mr. Smith says that a very large per cent of the fires in Moscow are from defective flues and careful watching would prevent nearly all of them. The suggestion is a good one. O. W. R. & N.
