AN OLD TRUTH REVIVED.
Every day now the line is being more
sharply drawn betw.-jn the real, self-
sacrificing patriot, and the profitter
hiding under a cloak of blatant loy-
alty.
Nineteen hundred years ago the
Man of Gallilee quietly remarked to a
company of friends aud followers that
it is more blessed to give than to
receive.” At the time it made little
impression upon his hearers, and in the
centuries since that day men have
grasped it merely as a theoretical
truth, with no real thought of making
it a life principle.
But the present world cataclasm has
put the people to thinking seriously
of this statement of the great Teacher.
People with no claims to religious con-
victions are waking up to the fact that
underlying the statement is found
true secret of life. V/e are coming
to see more clearly every day that the
selfish life is the miserable life, stunt-
ing and dwarfing all the finer quali-
ties of our nature that have elevated
us as a race so immeasurably above the
human brutes with whom we now do
battle.
When the final history of this wai
is written, those whose names will go
down at the head of the honor list will
not be the profiteers who grasped mil-
lions from a suffering world; but those
who gave, and gave, and gave, till they
could give no more—who stripped
themselves of earthly possessions to
gain a crown that all earth and hell
can never deprive them of—
The proud consciousness that they
have “done what they could” for hu-
manity and the right.
Many superstitious people are pro-
phesying that the world is coming to
an end. It will—in time.
FRIDAY,
June 28
. Is the day set apart
by the President of the
United States for every
citizen to answer to roll
call and pledge to buy a
certain, stated number
of War Savings Stamps,
the amount to be in
proportion to their fi-
nancial ability.
Meetings will be held
in every school district
in the United States. In
Tecumseh school dist-
rict the meeting will be
held at the High School
Auditorium beginning
at 2 o’clock p. m. and
will continue until each
and every person in the
district has had an op-
portunity of subscrib-
ing.
Those who fail to be
present and subscribe,
unless they have good
reasons, will be regard-
ed as enemies to this
country and all names
will be turned over to
the Council of Defense.
