"Coupled with this, difficulty Is
the unusual condition of a great
shortage of snow in the, mountains

Sir.' Do the people, of Pitts
burgh believe In prayer?
Here stands the challenge he
fore everyone of us. We are
past the time of conventional
religion'; past Up service to God;
.past cheap denial of divine in
stitutions. '' We are face toface '
with the tragedy of a world, and
we know if we know anything'
that there is but one power
which can keep the future safe.
We have easily called this a
Christian nation now prove it.
We have complacently pointed to
the number of churches in Pitts-
burgh, and then ' left most of
the pews empty. We have dur
ing this war, elicited support
from every human source;-now,
then, is not It time to remem
ber God? "
One clergyman In Pittsburgh
has sent forth a clarion call. The
First Presbyterian church is
holding , a dally, meeting -for
prayer and intercession, and how
much attention has been paid
to it by Pittsburgh's people.
Yes, when Sousa's band plays
there is a mob clamoring to beT
the audience. When Mary Pick
ford is to speak for the Liberty
Loan, not one Inch of standing
room is available. When the
.church doors are open there Is
plenty of loom and to spare.
Shame upon us all. how dare we
- so flout the Lord God -Almighty!
People of Pittsburgh go and
pray it Is our bounden duty, it
is our opportunity. It is the only
way in which we can hope, for
victory and peace.

Pleads For Patriotism.
"Sea dad what good shoes the war
department furnishes for us," my boy
said one day just after coming home
from the Mexican border. He con
tinued. "Had I known you would
appreciate a pair I would have secur
ed them for you." It is needless to
say that I would have felt better
if he had not gone into details quite
so far in speaking of the matter.
Napoleon is quoted with having
made the statement' that armies
march on their stomachs. Quite like
ly that Is true wit regard to his
and other autocratic ai-mies as well.
Follow if you please the trail of the
Hun armies and see hoir, they have
ravished and aiultuated women and
children leaving- their carcasses to
pollute the land thinking thus to
terriorize the people into submission
to their devlllith rule. See how they
have df fied churches and other build
ing with their filth and poisoned the
wells from which the Inhabitants
drew their cooling drink, and when
they can do no other nastyrwork they
fly over head and drop "stink"
bombs. And it Is said they were
careful to save the breweries while
destroying the churches, in order to
serve , their stomachs. Every move
they make Indicates the work of the
serpent, nasty wriggling slimy
thing It is. . The decree went forth
at Eden's closed and guarded Kate a
long time ago: "upen thy belly shalt
thou go and dust shalt thou eat all
the days of thr,llfe:" and enmity
will I put betwean thee and the wo
man and betweA her seed and thy
seed;" It shall bruise they head
and thou shalt bruise his heel." I
hare killed many a 'poisonous rattle
snake In Nebraska, my native state,
and I almost always when I chanced
to have shoes on my feet mashed the
victim's head with my heel and re
membered that thus It was written
In the scriptures. There are I think
non poisonous snakes which perhaps
should not be molested unless near
residences where they might be bad
for little children to come in contact
with. . ,
Yes our enemies march on their
bellies as It was decreed that they
should,, wallowing In the mire and
filth and will lick the dust when
Uncle Sam gets good and ready.
Don't you ever get the Idea how
ever that freedom's forces "go crouch
ing and skulking into the fray
ashamed of their movements. - Our
government has furnished . the best
shoes that skilled mechanics can
make and our officers are demand
ing that our boys keep clean, and
respect woman's virtue and honor.
You remember one of Pershing's men
paid the death penalty for mistreat
ing a woman. And dont you re
member our modern Daniels banish
ed the grog from the navy, and Sec
retary Daker Is constantly demanding
tnat the cantonments be kept clean
for the boys who are to fight our
Here Uncle Sam's boys come mil
lions of them marching in the best
shoes money can buy with heads
erect and shoulders thrown back and
their lungs filled with the pure air
of freedom's clime and their faces
are turned toward Jibe rising sun and
they will continue" to travel- thus in
countless numbers till their noble
task Is accomplished andthen they
will come back with heads enveloped
in a cloud of glory shed upon them
from the constellation of stars with
in the folds of the most beautiful
banner It has ever been the privilege
of mortal to gaze upon. Are you
sorry you are a citizen of the good
old U. S. A.? Where's the man who
wants to shirk when there Is such
a grand and glorious fight on band?
I am glad I lived to see the day I
can help although a few short years
ag I Vailed, "why was I born to go
through with such misery?"- Well
thank God It's over and I have my
"eyes open" to the fact that it Is a
most glorious privilege to live and
fight when my Fatberhas a conflict
staged to give the children of men
their liberty. "If the Son shall make
you free ye shall be free Indeed."
What's the. matter with some of you
holiness people? I was informed a
few years ago over In Idaho when
I sat as a learner at your feet that
Joshua carried on a holiness cam
paign, when he went Into the land of
Canaan ;and put away a lot of filth.
Now Uncle Sam is carrying on the
same kind of work why don't you
