NO MORE BULLETINS.
After today The Star-Mirror will not
issue bulletins. The practice which be

charge of the telegraphic news, will be
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

people are not so anxious about the news!

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.

the latest news furnished by the Asso

homes of its patrons in Moscow as early
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.

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

Germany dreamed. She was the
P rou d mistiess of the woild. But her

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.

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

control the destinies of a people. No
longer will we submit our questions
of difference to the uncertain verdicts
of war. 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

Special Church Notice.
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?
It's worth thinking about.

Watch Your Flues.
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.
