Two weeks ago there was a statement in the daily papers that Tom Watson, a member of the New York me always to express my approval of the efforts made by my brothers for the good of mankind. Six members cf Columbia Lodge, to wit: Robt. J. Hurt, Edgar W. Reed, Leon Lewis, , Albert Bryant, PaulG Chandler, Barney Rasner, have obeyed their Country's call, and have accepted the place Providence found for them among the fighting forces of the United States. They have expressed their willingness to accept what destiny may have in store for them, and to do their part toward sustaining the principles of free government and establishing universal democracy. These men are not invalids in a protected come', they are not cowards, fleeing before a revolution they are guides, redeemers and benefactors, obeying the mighty impulse of a patriot's heart that is leading them into the chaos of the Old World, where their fellowmen are suffering and the women and children are being outraged by the iron hand of Militarism. As Masons, our duty is first to God, then to our country and to our fellowmen. Those of us who believe in the fundamental, teachings of our great Order take pride in honoring our brothers who are offering themselves upon the altar of Humanity, that posterity may enjoy the blessings of free government, and as an evidence of ourappreciation, we who remain at home must obey the call of our Government by furnishing food and clothing to our soldiers, and conserving the supplies produced at home for the maintenance of our Allies. As a token of my appreciation for the services to be performed by the six gallant members of Columbia Lodge, who have gone, and those who may go, I present to my Lodge this Service Flag, on which I have caused to be placed six stars, representing our six ambassadors who will go into foreign fields on the most important mission ever assigned to an American, and I will cause to be placed on this flag other stars representing such members of my Lodge as may follow their example. I hope we will by appropriate resolution, assign a suitable place in the Lodge Room to this flag, that it may become a monument to that fidelity, courage and patriotism displayed by Bros. Hurt, Reed, Lewis, Bryant, Chandler and Rasner, and those whose names may hereafter be added to this honor roll. Let the white field of this flag remind us of the pure life and the crimson border of the blood shed by Him whose birthplace wa3 marked by a star, and as we look upon this flag, pray God's blessings upon these stars of Columbia Lodge, and trust that He will return them to us in the fulL. vigor of their manhood.

Her eyes followed him, a vittil, dynamic American who would do big, lawless things to the day of his death. She sighed. He had been a great figure In her life, and now he had passed out of it. As soon as she was alone with Diane, her Irish cousin dropped the little bomb she had up her sleeve. 'Tm going to be married Thursday, Di." Mrs. Paget embraced ie 3tt jg her for the tenth time within an hour. She was very fond of Sheba, and she had been on a great strain concerning her safety. That out of her danger had resulted the engagement Diane had hoped for was surplusage of good luck. "You lucky, sensible girl." Sheba assented demurely. "I do think I'm sensible as well as lucky. It Isn't every girl that knows the right man for her even when he wants her. But I know at last. He's the man for me out of ten million." 'Tm sure of It, dear. Oh, I am so glad."

I am the happiest girl." 'Tm so glad you see it that way at last" Diane passed to the practical aspect of the situation. "But Thursday. Will that give us time, my dear? And who are you going to have here?" "Just the family. I've invited two guests, but neither of them can come. One has a broken leg and the other says he doesn't want to see me married to another man," Sheba explained with a smile. "So Gordon won't come." "Yes. Hell have to be here." We can't get along without the bride all true about the little folk and the pied piper and " "If it's paganism to be in love with degree the world, you are a thirty-thirpagan." "Well, and was there ever a more beautiful night before?" He thought not, but he had not the words to tell her that for him its beauty lay largely in her presence. Her passionate love of things fine and brave transformed the universe for him. It was enough for him to be near her, to hear the laughter bubbling In k her throat, to touch her crisp, hair as he adjusted the scarf about her head. "God made the night," he replied. "So that's a Christian thought as well as a pagan one." They we're ho exception to the rule that lovers are egoists. The world for them tonight divided itself Into two classes. One included Sheba O'Neill and Gordon Elliot; the other took in the uninteresting remnant of humanity. No matter how far afield their talk began, It always came back to themselves. They wanted to know all about each other, to compare experiences and points of view. But time fled too fast for words. They talked as lovers will to the end of time In exclamations and the meeting of eyes and little endearments. When Diana and Peter found them on the hillside, Sheba protested, with smile, that her half-shIt could not be two hours since she and Gordon had left the living room. Peter grinned. He remembered a hill top consecrated to his own courtship of Diane. The only wedding present that Macdonald sent Sheba was a long envelope with two documents attached by a clip. One was from the Kusiak Sun. It announced that the search party had found the body of Northrup with the rest of the stolen gold beside him. The other was a copy of a legal document Its effect was that the district attorney had dismissed all charges pending against Gordon Elliot Although Macdonald lost the coal claims at Kamatlah by reason of the report of Elliot, all Alaska still believes that he was right In that country of strong men he stands head and shoulders above his fellows. He has the fortunate gift of commanding the admiration of friend and foe alike. The lady who is his wife is secretly the greatest of his slaves, but she tries not to let him know how much he has captured her Imagination.

"Ladies and gentlemen: It is a great pleasure to me to be with you today. I did not come here withjany purpose to make a speech, forjyou have your chosen Bpeakers, but to meet and mingle with you as neighbors and friends. If on the spur of the moment, I can add anything, etc., etc. With that he launched out into a most forceful and eloquent speech, which doubtless captivated his audience, and sent them away saying, "Why Bramlette, although called on unexpectedly and without preparation, made the best speech of the day." We may add right here, that things of this kind have occurred at other times and with other speakers. A crowd is always pleased to get something better than it expected, and it does not detract from the fame of the one who is the cause of the pleasure. In this old portfolio was another paper. It was a printed page of a part of the proceedings of the Russell Creek Baptist Association held at an early day. In one place was the statement that Brothers Thomas E. Bramlette and Rev. Moses Akin were appointed on a certain committee. Moses Akin, at that time, was a noted preacher of Green county, with a reputation for remarkable native ability and eloquence. He preached in all of the counties of this section extending over to Clinton, and it was under his ministration, as I have heard, that Bramlette was brought into the church. Akin was a very large man weighing close to or over three hundred pounds. In his preaching tours, he told me, his weight was such that he carried a led horse so that he could alternate from one to the other. In his early ministry his meetings were very successful. His power over an audience was said to be re znarkable moving it from laughter to tears at will. But the "flesh and devil'' were too much for him, and he fell. His license to preach was revoked by his church, and what preaching he did after that was a free lance. Although out of the ministry and out of the church, he continued to preach from time to Along time until his death. about the close of the Civil war, he was charged by the Federal authorities with moonshining, and a deputy Marshall was sent to arrest him. This officer, who was something of a dude in appearance and dress, and withal a very small man, found Akin at his home, on Brush creek, with an ax in hand on a hill side, beside a large tree which he had just felled. After a salutation, the officer explained to Akin his mission, and told him to get ready to go with him. "You say I must go with you, mister. "Have you got any papers" inquired Mose. "I don't know anythingaboutcourts,and I am an ignorant man, living way out here on Brush creek, and I woulovlike for you to read them if you have any." With that the officer produced the warrant directing him to take tte body of Moses Akin and have it before the court in Louisville, etc." When he read it through Mose laid his ax down and went and spread his three hundred pounds at full leneth on the down tree. "Come on" said the officer. "Read that paper again" said Akin. The officer read the pa- tpr as requested. That paper says for you to take me," and Akin refused to budge. By this time the officer's ire began to rise and drawing his pistol, he again commanded him to "come on," but Akin still held his position, saying, "Here I am take are resisting an ofme." ficer, and will be punished for it" said the deputy. "No I am not, said he, and I am not going to resist you. I won't hurt a hair of your head, and I am ready for you to take me, as that paper says. I will lie right here and you can take me whenever you are ready, but it don't tell you to shoot me." The officer could not shoot him in his resistless attitude, nor could he take him. So he had to leave him on the log. He returned to Louisville, had another writ issued for his arrest, charging him with resisting an officer. In a few days the officer returned to Brush creek, and with him he brought a spring wagon and a force sufficient to lift him from a log and into the wagon. On arriving at Louisville, Akin asked to be taken to the office of his old friend and former church brother, Gov. Bramlette. Bramlette took him into the consulting room, and had him give all the facts as they occurred. When he was through, he said, "Mose, I would be glad to defend you if I could be of service to you, but it would be impossible for me or any other lawyer in Louisville to secure your acquittal. Of course you know as well as I, that you are guilty, but there is a way out, if you will take my advice." ''What "Go is that said?" said Mose. into court and make your own defense, cross examine the officer, and make him tell the facts just as they occurred. Then, tell them yourself in your own way. When the evidence is though the Judge will permit you to speak in your own defense, and I know you will do it better than any one can for you. Put some fire and wit and pathos of old times in it, and it will be all right for you." Mose acted on the suggestion, and when the case was called he appeared as the innocent, artless old countryman, who had no lawyer, and did not desire ou mmmwMmwmmwmmmmmmmmmmmmwmmwmmmmmmm m m 1 Receiving Daily From The Spring Goods in Great Abundance, Purchased at Close Prices.

ADDRESS CAMPAIGN TO BABIES LIVES. SAFE-GUAR- D The welfare of three hundred thousand babies is the inspiration campaign orfor a nation-wid- e ganized by the Federal Children's Bureau and the Child Welfare Committee of the ' Council of National Defense. Believing that the civilian population has no greater patriotic duty than the safeguarding of the nation's children, the directors of the campaign inaugurated a Children's Year on April 6th, the first anniversary of the United State's entrance into the war. Carefully prepared statistics prove that three hundred thousand American children under Ave years of age die each year and that last year 15,000 mothers died needlessly. The purpose of the approaching campaign is to counteract such ruthless sacrifice and to give every mother and baby a fair chance at life and health. Authorities agree that of the deaths of infants and most of the deaths of mothers are easily preventable. This year, notwithstanding the withdrawal of many doctors and nurses for war service, it is believed that a large proportion of mothers and babies may be saved. Thus" while abroad war and death are reaping vast harvests, on a huge scale, at home the United States is pledged to the conservation and protection of human life.

His primary object in his teaching during this time is to prepare the disciples for the tragedy of the cross, His which he knew was so near. teaching gathers around the great cardinal doctrines of the Christian faith. He instructs them touching his person, atoning death, resurrection and glorious coming again. He knew that in the measure that they intelligently apprehended these things they would be able to pass through the ordeals before them. The same is true today. Those who clearly apprehend the Divine Person, the vicarious atonement, the glorious resurrection, and second coming of Christ, are undisturbed by the world tragedies of the present hour. I.

Two questions of Christ provoked this confession: 1. "Whom do men say that I am?" (w. 27, 28). This question referred to the opinions of the people regarding Jesus. Some believed him to be John the Baptist, some Elijah, and some one of the prophets. Tly all recognized him to be a teacher or prophet with more than human authority and power. Today, as then, there is a diversity of opinion among people as to Jesus Christ. Some think that he was only a man, others that he was a great teacher, but nothing more. Jesus was not content with this acknowledgment. Had he been satisfied with this, he would not have been molested in Jerusalem, for the Jews willingly acknowledged him as much more than a human teacher. 2. "Whom say ye that I am?" (w. 29, 30). C.

He suffered physical weariness and hunger, ridicule and contempt, and even misunderstanding and lack of appreciation on the part of his friends and disciples. (2) "Be rejected of the elders, chief priests and scribes." These were the nation's official representatives, the very ones who should have known and received Christ and recommended his reception on the part of the nation. Truly, he came to his own, and his own received him not John 1:11. To be rejected by one's own friends and relatives is doubly painful. (3) "Be killed." This announcement was startling to the disciples. They had not yet come to realize that redemption was to be accomplished through the passion and the cross. Jesus now states with definiteness and certainty that he must die on the cross. This necessity was due primarily to the fact that it was the divine purpose to make the death of Christ the heart and core of the atonement; and also, to human hatred and opposition. (4) "Rise again." Though this was utterly incomprehensible to the disciples, he shows them that this would be the glorious Issue of his death. III. The Cost of Discipleship (v. 34).

American Girl, dam of Bohemian Leader, was sold by Ball Bros., for $5,000 the highest price ever paid for a Saddle mare. Bohemian King, the Sire, was bought by Allan Edelen at two years old for 510,000, the highest price ever paid in America for a saddle horse at this age. Bohemian King won the championship at the State Fair, at 3 year? old, something no other horse ever done except his sire, Bourbon King.
