A service flag was unveiled Sunday
evening at' the Christian Church in
honor of the toys' froea- tit At church
who are serving their country at the
trout A chorus of thirty voices and
.the ''high 'school orchestra furnished
the special music .for the occasion.
The flag was unveiled by two young
ladles. Iter. J. S., McCallum, pastor
of the church, was In charge of the
beautiful1 and Impressive ceremonies.
The program opened -with the sing
ing of "America" by the audience.
After the scripture raiding the chorus
rendered "The Awakening Chora"."
Miss Ruby Seasefiey sang the beauti
ful song, "Keep the Home Fires- Burn
ing." - -
Rev. McCallum took as bis text.
"Render unto Ceaser the thing that
are Cesser's and unto God the things
that are God's." Jesus said this to
the Pharasees when they tried to
catch, him in a word trap in order to
convict him under the Roman law.
But he answered them completely, for
he was wise and saw through the'r
"But the question arises, what are
God'ii goods 7 Man was wade in the
image of God. therefore he belongs to
God, and he should give himself to
God. We belong to him bodv and
"Then what are Ceasar's goods?
Our Ceasar is our government and we
should be loyal to it and ready to sac
rifice for it, especially that our coun
try be safe for God and his teachings.
Germany's deeds are vulgar, low, sac
religious. They are not fit to deal
wth as a nation or as a military
power. This war is for International
democracy for liberty, equality and
fraternity. Might does not make
right, and no if there should be a
German victory it will only be the be
ginning of war.
"Our country is filled with traitors
to us. A traitor is of no account to
anybody, even to the one he serves,
afterTiIs dirty work is done. No one'
wantB to nave "any thing to do with a
traitor. ' 'He' is detested, hated, and
"There are two ways in which we
can do our best for victory, for peace,
and 'for happiness. First, we can
conserve food that we may be able
to send large amounts of it to the
boys at' the front. Food means en
durance for them. Second, we can
equip the men who have gone. We
must send the men properly equip
ped, and to do this we must make
volunteer loans to the government.
Our government can conscript our
boys, but It cannot conscript our
money. We want our boys to come
back to us. The more money we
give the sooner they will return to
us. The government has sent out a
call for volunteers, not for lives, but
for pocketbooks, and we should be
willing and glad to respond to the
After a song, "As a Volunteer," by
the audience, J. C. Holbrook made the
presentation address. He spoke of
the loyalty and patriotism of tho boys
who have gone, and of the principles
for which, they are fighting. He also
thanked the Ladies' Aid Society, who

Rev, McCallum responded' to tho

All of these are esentlal to control

feed treatment, described as follows
by the O. A. C. plant patiio'.ogltJw:
Take four ounces of mercuric
chloride, ppwdered or chrystalllne
(which may be bought at the local
drug store), and dissolve it in one
quart' of hot' water. Add enough wa
ter to. make thirty gallons. Barrels',
wooden tubs or concrete vessels may.
be used, since tho disinfectant cor
rodes metals and soon loses strength
in metal receptacles.
After sorting and cleaning the po

or crates and immerse them in the so

about one and a half hours. Remove
and spread the seed or drain the
sacks, after which the tubers may be

The solution is a deadly poison, and
the treated seeds should novor be

President Wilton, August 27, 1917.
WE FIGHT FOR GOOD FAITH
'The faith of treaties Is the only
olid foundation on which a Temple
of Peace can be built up." (James
Bryce.)- Good faith between nations,
as between men. Is the one and only
safeguard from a return to barbarism.
Without It brute force, sheer might,
must rule. Without it there is no
security in human relations no se
curity, even, for life Itself". To kef p
one's word, when once given, that Is
the evidence of the progress of 'civ
ilisation, and tho test of it.
Hence the ease of Bolglum becomes
the slnglo greatest, German offense
against clvTlltatlSn"ln this warX At
first, In our American Ignorance of
world conditions, we did not see this.
We da see it now; more and more we
realize that until the crime against
Belgium Is atoned for, there can be
no peace, and no hope or a world
at peace. M
What the the factsT By treaties
signed In 1816, and again In 1831, and
still again In 1839, this last revision
being in effect in 1914, it was agreed
"Belgium shall form a perpetually
neutral state. The five powers guar
antee to It this perpetual neutrality,
as also the Inviolability of Its ter
ritory." These five powers were Aus
tria. France. Great Britain, Russia,
and Prussia. By such treaties the
neutral state was pledged to defend
in arms the neutrality of Its terri
tory; and each of the .great powers
pledged Itself not only not to march
troops Into or through the neutral
state, but also to aid her, In case
her territory were violated.
The worli, thinking no nation so
base as to break Its word, was com
pletely taken by surprise by the at
tack on Belgium. But we know now,
from Oerman statements, that German
military plans had for years Intended
to break this pledge.- German rulors
lied as to this consistently, and lied
up to the last day. On the morning
before the German troops advanced,
the German minister assured Belgium
she need feel no alarm, and in the
evening o that same day he delivered
The world has never seen so com
plete a denial of the binding effect
of tho pledged" word. Why has Ger
many so lost sight of the principle
of honor among nations-?- -Hep own
answer reveals the catjse; It is again
the plea of might.. "The fafe that Bel
glum has called down upon! heraelf
(note the hypocrisy of, this) Is hard,
but not too hard,- - ' . 'or the
destinies of the immortal great na
tions, stand so high "that they can
not- but have the right, in case of
need; to stride' oVer "exlstencles that
can- not deend themselves." (Pro
cessor Oncken.) When the British
Minister at Berlin notified the Ger
man Chancellor that Great Britain
was in honor bound to; defend Bel
gium's neutrality, the latter argued
that this was "Jerri ble,"'-.a war "Jus
ror a word 'neutrality just roi; a
scrap of paper."" The pitiful yea, the
terrible significance of such utter
ance, is that Germans believe them
"If I am asked what wo are fight
ing for," said Prima Minister As
qulth, "I can reply in two sentences.
In the first place, to fulfill an obliga
tion . . . not. only of law, but of
honor, which no self-respecting man
could possibly have repudiated; sec
ondly, to vindicate the principle . . .
thai small nationalities are not to be
crushed, In defiance of International
' America was not a direct guarantor,
like Grea Britain, of the neutrality
of Belgium, though In various con-.i
ventlons (of which Germany ajso was
a signer) we pledged to the main
tenance of the world principle of "good J
faith. But every nation was attacKea
when Germany broke faith. "The law
protecting Belgium which was vlo-
Iated was our la,w and the law of
every other civilized country. . . It
was our safeguard against the neces
sity of maintaining great armamonts.
Our interest 'n having it maintained
as the law of nations was a substan
tial, valuable, permanent interest,"
In tho hope of an enduring peace, In
tho hope of an advancing civilization,
we can not forget Belgium. In 'the
hope for unmolested self-development,
In the sense of our own security nec
easary (o progress, wo must not forget
Belgium, until her wrongs are righted.
