. Mission Study.
Mission study is . of vital impor tance to all missionary work. The needs and the opportunity thruout the entire world to-day are so urgent as to call for missionary education, nur educational secretaries have planned the very finest study courses for mission study classes, and with the true missionary spirit, which is an essential factor in every well rounded Christian character, the study of missions will produce such results as a better knowledge of the Bible for every Christian, a deeper prayer life, a wider oppor tunity for presenting missionary in formation. The purpose of mission study is not only to acquire information, but In Intensive cultivation whereby men and women may become aroused to become leaders of the church in the prosecution of missionary enter -orison. In mission study classes we do not APk merely to have successful meet inss. or to create a vague interest what w do ask is a M.nnM.,1 attitude of life, and such an increased sense of responsibility hnt will result in definite action. w. want to advance the kingdom f r.nd bv training Christian women for leadership in all departments of flTinrch work. When we face the fact that half the world has never heard of Christ, we face a task set us by the Master himself. We want the world and its needs so impressed upon our hearts that we shall not be content to leave this task unfinished. Oh, if every American woman would only give something of her time, her prayers and her money to this task of estab lishiner the nations of the earth up on the principles of righteousness and love and developing Christlike ness in men and women. Mianinn Rtiidv has aroused thou sands of persons to study more in telligently, to give more liberally, to pray more earnestly and to volunteer for service. The goal of the missionary "work for 1915 is: "A Mission Study Class in every Auxiliary." Read at Mount Zion District Con ference. MRS. W. M. WARTERFIELD. First Christian Church.

Drop a letter with a local address on it into a city box and the carrier takes it to the office. There the mail clerk handles it, and the distributing carrier conveys it to its destination. This in volves the services of three men, and the cost stamp to the sender is two cents. Drop a similar letter, addressed to New York, into a local box, and the carrier, the office clerk, the mail wagon driver, the railroad post clerk and the office clerk and carrier in New York all give it a certain amount of attention, and it travels hundreds of miles no less than six persons "give it a lift," and the cost to the sender is the same two cents of local delivery. In the great sum of national expenses this seems a very unequal charge, and that is why several public men are inter esting themselves to have letter postage fnr Inoal deliveries cut to one cent. The postoffice authorities themselves recog nize the inequality of the cost between the long and short hauls. It is easy to see what a saving this one-cent postage would be to the people who send out monthly bills, and to oth ers who pay the bills by check returned through the mails. Under the present system the goverment gets four cents for every bill thus sent and paid, which is a fine "pick-up." The reason a re ceipt is not returned is because it would take an extra two cents. A firm with a large monthly credit business pays out hundreds of dollars annually in sending out its bills. Of course, they should pay whatever it is worth to the government to distribute the letters, but the conten tion is, ought they to overpay; and is it not worth less to the authorities to handle the mail three times locally than six times in getting it to New York Senator Weeks is much interested in the matter of reduced postage for cities and towns, and has announced that he will bring the matter up before Congress at its next session. It will prove a very popular measure thruout the country if the desired end can be reached with nut loss to the Postoffice DeDartment. i psa than mi vears aero letter Dostage was three cents, and the cut to two was regarded as a public benefaction.

For once Col. , Roosevelt heartily seconds and supports a position taken by President Wilson, as indicated, in the Colonel's speech to the Knights of Columbus in New York Tuesday night when he went even lartner than the President . in scoring the hyphenated Americans who placed the interests of other countries be fore the interests of the United States. In fact, some who heard the Coloned the night of the day after Mr. Wilson had delivered himself of his address on "America First," and soundf his clarion call to Americans to "lme-tip" and show where they stood, were of opinion the Colonel's speech was a pretty close echo of the President's speech, only expressed in more vigorous and direct vernacular than Mr. Wilson permitted ' himself to employ. "There is no room in this country for the hyphenated American," almost shouted the Colonel. "You can't hoist two flags on . the same flagpole and not have one underneath!" And by the hyphenated Americans, the Colonel explained, as Mr. Wilson had explained, he did not mean for eign-born American citizens, but he meant those citizens, whether native or foreign-born, who, place a hyphen and some other word before "American." "When I refer to hyphenated Americans I do not refer to nat uralized Americans. Some of the very best Americans I have ever known were naturalized Americans Americans born abroad. But a hyphenated American is not an American at all. This is just as true of the man who puts 'native' before the hyphen as of the man who puts German, or Irish, or Eng lish before the hyphen." " "Americanism is a matter of the mir-it arirl of the soul." said the i" - Colonel. The President had defined Ameri canism as a "principle" and a "spir it." "For an American citizen to vote as a German-American, an Irish-American or an English American is to be a traitor to American institutions; and those hyphenated Americans who terrorize American politi cians by threats of the foreign vote are engaged in treason to the American republic." Thus the Colonel vigorously de clared. And the President had said: "There is too general an im pression, I fear, that very large numbers of our fellow citizens born in other lands have not entertained with sufficient in tensity and affection the Aeri can ideal; but their numbers are not large. Those who would seek to represent them are yery vocal but they are not very in fluential." The Colonel said: "The one absolutely certain way of bringing this nation to ruin, of preventing all possibili ty of its continuing to be a na tion at all, would be to permit it to become a tangle of squab bling nationalities, an intricate knot of German-Americans, Irish-Americans, English-Americans, French-Americans, Scandinavian-Americans or Italian Americans, each preserving its separate nationality, each at heart feeing more sympathy with Europeans of that nation ality than with the other citi zens of the American republic." The President had said: "We stand apart unembroiled, conscious of our own principles, conscious of what we hope and purpose so far as our powers permit for the world at large, and it is necessary that we should consolidate the American principle. Every, political ac tion, every social action, should have for its object in America at this time to challenge the spirit of America; to ask that every man and woman who thinks first of America should rally to the standards of our life." . The Colonel said: "The man who calls himself ' an American, citizen and who yet shows by his actions that he is primarily the citizen of a Your Interest is Mine This is a Mutual Affair WE ARE DEALERS IN Tea Rose Flour ; Club House Can Goods Fountain Square Coffee Fresh Meat MarKet NONE BETTER Quick Service, Courteous Treatment and Full Weights is our Motto WHITE'S OLD STAND E. WHITE PHONE 66 foreign land, plays a thoroughly mischievous part in the life of our body politic. He has no place here, and the sooner he returns to the land to which he feels his real heart-allegiance, the better it will be for every good American." The President said: "I am not deceived as to the balance of opinion among the foreign-born citizens of, the United States, but I am in a hurry to have an opportunity to have a line-up and let the men who are thinking first of other countries stand on one side biblically, it should be to the left and all those that are for America-first, last and all the time on the other side." It will thus be seen that these two foremost protagonists of the oppos ing political doctrines of America are at one of the most vital issue that now confronts the American people, menacing the very life of the nation, the principle that President Wilson has enunciated as "America first. - It has been the habitual practice of the politicians in the past to. ap peal to the hyphenated Americans as such the Irish-American, the :;Ger man-American, tha Italian,5 the-Scandinavian, the Polish and other strains and creeds rather than as Americans, pure and simple, that there is no doubt great excuse for RfimB of these thinkins: that tneir former nationalities and leaning are more important and worthy to ' be considered than American interests and principles. This is an error and abuse that must be checked and remedied. To paraphrase the words of Abra ham Lincoln. , This nation cannot permanently endure half alien and half American. Let the "line-up" proceed and let the watchword of all patriotic citi zens, of whatever nativity and creed, be "America first." . Let those who are for some other nationality first stand on one side to- p-ether whether it be on the left hand or the right, and let true Amer icans stand together whether it be on the left or the right. It will be quite soon enough for Americans who are for "America first" to consent to be considered the goats when they are thus shown to be in the minority of their country men. Knoxvllle Sentinel. Department of Food and Drugs, Upon investigation, this depart ment finria that it has been a time- honored custom for people in the country to place in containers, sor ghum molasses, maple syrup and honey as well as various farm pro ducts, for the purpose of placing on market. They seem to be unaware that the State laws specifically state that they shall contain no salicylic acid as a preservative. If Sodium Benzoate is used for this purpose, it shall not be over one and one tenth of one per cent, and so stated on the label. Also that containers shall bear a label, and if contents are adulterated .a 4 nmt Yvionnnr it TTi 1 1 R r hft so stated on the lable. The label at the same time must state the net weieht of contents. It has come to our notice that the producers in the rural community are selling these commodities without following out any of the above instructions. I take this occasion to warn them as well as the merchants purchasing same and re-selling to his patrons, that we will be compelled to prose cute all parties concerned, under the laws of this State. Our reasons for this are manifold. We find, that in a large number of cases, goods are being adulterated '. and ... that short weight is being given,, and that there can be no check made upon the mat ter as long as containers do not carry labels of any description. Merchants , mm ho wnmeri that hereafter should. inspectors "of this t Department find goods of 'any- character on their shelyes,:' such as, suggested above,. they1 shall" immediately condemn and Drbsecute the offenders as . violating the Sanitary Food Jaw' of' this State.
