Patriotism ia one of the (rreat, ab

country and iruvrrnmrnt under which

lovo of the Idenla and free inatitu
tiona of our democratic rivilitation.
There have been aome dollar pntriota
and profiteera who have Uken advan
tage of the diatreaa of their country to
enrich themaelvea. There have alao
lieen aome alackera who fled the call
of duty, but the rank and file of the
people have len nobly true la the
idrala that make an American.
One of the moat pitiable caaea of
lacking haa juat come to light. A
young man. American born and bred,
ahipprd to Mexico to avoid aervice in
hia country'a name. While there h
contracted the dread epidemic and died
among atranevre with a dishonored
life and a breaking heart. Hia mother
will not rniae a monument to him; un
like thnt Wanhington mother who on
hearing the tragic newa of her boy 'a
deatii in action, aaid in teara, "I can
not regret giving him for my coun

one of the great worda of the war

She knew and understood the various
patriutiama of Europe and aho aaw

"Patriotiam la not enough." Hut
patriotiam with the Chriat religion ia
"The nation aporf from religion waa
never truly great," aaid Horace Rush-
nell. He meant the religion of Jeaua
Chriat, the divine Son of Cod and Sav
iour of men, who came Into the worki
not merely to give a little higher ideal
of life than the propheta nnd thinkcra
of the paat, but to Impart thnt life to
the Individual aoul nnd make him a
citizen of tho Kingdom of Ilenvon.
The religion ot Jesua Chriat ia the
central nnd moat potent fact In the
life of mankind, for when a man'a re
ligion ia wrong hia whole life of
thought and mornla becomea chaotic.
Of all the thrilling facta of life none
ia ao mnrked aa the fact that when a
man accepta tho way of life aa reveal
ed by Chriat, aurrenderlng hia will to
Him, hia experience will become rich
nnd beautiful, Tho power of Jeaua
Chriat can chango tho natural tenden
ciea of men awept by temptation.
There la an Infinite aource of aupply
for our spiritual needa aa there ia for
nil our phyalcnl needa. Light for the
eye, wave aounda fnr tho ear, thought

irand :or similar action on the part of
