it with Christ's response to the devil's

Country on Trial.
Rev. H. A. Hodges took his text
from Proverbs 11:24, and said that
liberality tended to plenty and selfish-
ness to want. He said that the coun-
try was on trial and that every Christ-
ian was under obligation to do his
best. He stated that we would be
called to sacrifice for church • and
country, and urged his congregation
to be thoughtful in planning for
emergencies and not to neglect the
essential things of life in the midst of
the great conflict. He said that the
people should keep purposes thor-
oughly Christian and be willing to
volunteer and serve wherever they
could be of the most service. He then
made a strong appeal for food con-
servation and had his members to
sign the pledge printed in yesterday's
Telegram. At night the same gen-
eral idea predominated in the service,
except that more emphasis was placed
on moral preparedness.
(iather lTp the Fragments.
ltev. E. S. liledsoe of the First
Christian church took as his text the
command which Christ gave to his
disciples after the feeding of the five
thousand, when He said, "Gather up
the fragments." He said that the an-
swer to the cry of human need was
the very heart of the gospel. Igno-
rance and suffering of humanity stand
in the way of the progress of Christi-
anity, he said, and the duty of the
church is to do away with these two |

upon the fact that love was the su-

those doing our fighting, and said
that It was our duty to see that they
were supplied with food necessities.
In order to provide this sustenance
we must conserve our own food sup-
ply. He said that we must heed the
call of the government and fall in
line with its suggestions.
The evening service at the Seventh

The ltev. ,T. W. Bergin of the First
Methodist church read Mr. Hoover's
letter to the people of the United
States and then took as his text, "In-
asmuch as ye have done it unto the
least of these my brethren, ye have
done it unto me." He said, "The
cause of humanity is the cause of
Christ," and that it was "America's
time to play the good Samaritan." He
commented on the world war situa-
tion and said that things looked
bright for our country to win the war.
