WHITSON, President 0. E. CAMERON, Cashier W. A. HENSLEY, Vice President ALLEN RAGLAND, Ass'tCashier D. C. WILHITE, Active Vice-President OUR DUTY AS A NATION TO THE WORLD v Cookeville, Tenn., May 26, 1914. Duty comes by oblogation and obliga tion comes by relation. Our greatness gives us that relation which brings the obligation of duty. Our duty from four standpoints: 1. Military. 2. Educational. 3. Social. 4. Christian. 1. Our military positions should be that of protector and not oppressor. Imperialism should be religated to barbaric tim and colonial conquest abandoned. We should be keepers at home and develop our own resources. I suspect that ere long we shall awake to the fact that the declaration of war with Spain, the acquisition of Cuba, Porto Rico and the Philip'cce is but the beginning of a policy that marks our decline ard points to the was that leads to the end of our own greatness. In our a titude toward Mexico I am reminded hat fools rush in where an gels fear to tread. Yet In the begin ning we founded our common wealth and acquired our territory y oppres sion and encroachment on the rights of liberty and domain of the rude poor ly armed savage and on the ruins of his empire, the vanishing of his heroes the distraction of his home. - -er of bis wife and children, the po sesslon of his land, lakes, streams, for ests, sun, moon, and stars, was built a province which in its achievements is the wonder of the ages. We draw the curtain on the cruelty of the colon ial times and as to rights and wrongs await the decision of a higher tiibu nal of man. Our flag in time of peace should be white as the driven snow and emblazoned on it as our motto "peace on earth and good will to man" and when forced to war unfold old ...lory, Ct fiance to the on-coming foo Educational standpoint. Standing as we do as authority in art and litera ture our speech, books and periodicals should be free from immoral taint sickly sentiment, or sceptical views on homo, society and relogion so that we may be worthy to copy and to em ulate. We must- preserve our Eng lish for it is dest'ned to be the com mon language of the world and the classic language of the future. . We rival other nations in romance, song, and story, our sculptors, bards and poets have almost out-classed those favored as lauriates to kings. Our epics, valor and chivalry worthy of the admiration of the world. Our In stitution of learning should conform as far as this age of progress will al low, to language arts and science of other years and keep pace with prac tical education every-where. In patri otism and literature we should be the leaders of all nations. Social. No nation is stronger than its social structure. No government more powerful than its homos. When tumult and dessilation threatened France the child of Corsica cried France needs homes! Our nation . owes a duty to itself j-.nd to the world, in that we .should preserve the homes I as the Bible directs for the family is j a divine institution and its purity necessary to the strength of the nation and of the world. 'Coming as we have from a race of heroes and heroines puritanical in home life and for our es timate of the home we have become proverbial to our sister countries. We should maintain this standard and with loyalty and love carry it to the extent of the habitation of man Our duty is great because of our great ness. Cbr'stlanity. The world looks upon us as a christian nation. Other coun tries to whom we send missionaries are surprised at the wickedness In our country and large cities. Our duty is clear that we should maintain a high standard of morality the same for men as for women a deviation from this is but an inheritance from barbarism and feudal times. We should advo cate practical Christianity and loyal faith that the world cannot gainsay and with zeal, love and power with God and man carry these principals to every creature to all nations. Higher criticism and so-called higher learning have assailed the Bible in our own land. The churches are loyal to God's word and should herald the cross to the entire world. Oh to be noble is to be good. Stout hearts are better than coronets. And simple faith than Norman blood. S. N. Fitzpatrick, D. D., Chm. Pastors Alliance.

DECORATION On Saturday, May 16, a large crowd of people gathered at Brown's Mill, to decorate the graves of loved ones, Addresses were made by Rev. G. E. Pennington and Bro. Wm. Ray. Bro. Hiram Brown Supt. of the Sunday school report. a good time. He said we! want to do away with Sunday Decorations and all day singings. Rev. W. W. Baxter says the Put- nam county Sunday School Associa tion has passed resolutions urging the people of Putnam county to observe the 30th of May, wh'ch Is National Decoration day, or such other days, so as not to conflict with church and Sun day school services. A hopeful sign of the times for pro gress is that the sentiment is growing against the all day Sabba h decora t'ons with big dinners served on the ground, which not only conflicts with other regular church services but the hard work of preparing the dinner makes the Sabbath a burden instead of a day of rest and worship. FOR RENT Two good barber chairs and other furniture. tf S. Hayden Young.
