Member of The Stanford Christian Church: Dear Friends: Feeling: keenly the loss of the social element of public worship, you will, I am sure, yield graciously to the closing order for the largest measure of good to the greatest number. It is heartening to know tlmt He Whom we worship in the sanctuary is not limited by time or place; that the Bible we read in the meeting hduse is not chained to the pulpit; that the "fellowship of kindred minds" is not dependent on personal contact but upon the blending of spiritual thought. So may I suggest that the Lord's day be a holy day ond not a holiday; tnat it be a time for rekindling the fires of family altars; when once again each household becomes a parish and its head a high priest of spiritual things. What a fine opportunity for family fellowship and how gladly will we avail ourselves of the privilege! In your meditations, intercessions and conversations some things will have the preeminence. God will be petitioned for a cessation of this epidemic. The large place the church is occupying in the present world order will be cause for thanksgiving; the agencies at work for the amelioration of human suffering, the sustaining of moral force, and the progress. toward world peace taking shape in Red Cross, Y. M. C. A., Liberty Loan and Allied Armies will lift your eyes afield. Our Service Flag jvith-nearly-fifty stars will add to your petitions, wfule perhaps you will find time to write a letter to one of those boys. All this will contribute to your per-, sonal enrichment of soul and make the day a glorious gain and not a woeful loss. Sincerely, your minister, HOWARD J. BRAZELTON.

VANDEVEER GONE Another of Stanford's old and highly respected citizens has gone the way of all good. Mr, M. Owen VanDeveer, aged 76, died at the home of his daughter, Mrs. J. C. Lynn, at iu o ciock last night, in August he was prostrated with heat and was taken from his store to the home of his daughter and he had .never been able to leave there. For many years the deceased had been a member of the Christian church and he was a most excellent man in every resnect. He was scrupulously honorable in all of his dealings and it could be truly sum or mm mac nis wora was as good as his bond. He had been a resident of Stanford for the past 20 years, coming from his farm two milea East of Rowland, which he sold to the late S. H. Shanks. His wife, who was Miss Bettie Broaddus, preceded him to the grave by 26 yearsj but the following children are left to moutn 4-tti loss of the splendid father: Mesfcrs. Owen VanDeveer, of Little Reck, Ark.; D. W. VanDeveer, of Richmond; Mrs. J. C. Lynn, of this city, and Miss Blanch VanDeveer, who is teaching at Morganton, N. C. They were all at his bedside when the end came . He was conscious to the last and talked with them until almost the last moment. Mr. VanDeveer was born in Casey county and was one of a family of 14 children, only two of whom survive Mrs. K. L, Tanner, ,of McKinney, and Uriah VanDeveer. of Casey. He came to this county when about 12 years old and had since made it a most excellent citizen. The funeral will be preached at Buffalo Cemetery at 9.45 tomorrow, Saturday morning,"hy br.itusinss b?cminK one of the biggest H. J.

LINCOLN HAS DONE HER BIT Lincoln county has done her bit in the sale of Fourth Liberty Loan Bonds and this paper is delighted to tell its readers this afternoon that she has sold more than her quota. She was asked to dispose of $338,-350'b worth, but the patriotic citizens of the best county in the State have bought bonds several thousand dollars in excess of, that amount. I took some, work, but Chairman J. S. Hocker and Assistant Chairman W. H. Shanks and their noble band of helpers were more than equal to the occasion, and as a result we are "over the top" good and strong. The West Lmi did her part nicely, the East End exceeded expectations, the South End did all that was asked of her, while Stanford, as usual, outdid herself. Chairman J. S. Hocker said this morning; and by the way, he is about the happiest man in the county: "The Loan has been raised by the cooperation of the good people of the county both men and women, and I am proud of what we have done. Our. people have never faltered when asked to do their duty, but this was a big task, and the fact that they more than accomplished the desired end, makes me prouder than ever that I live 'among them. I attribute the success of the drive to three things, namely: The education of the people -from the platform by intelligent speakers; a house-to-house campaign by both men and women, and last, but not least, to judicious use of the columns of our home -paper. I would labed these the 'Big Three.' " The Lincoln County National Bank's quota of the sum total is approxi mately $112,000: First National Bank, $95,000; National Bank of Hustonville, $43,000; Peoples Bank of Hustonville, $33,000; Crab Or chard Banking Co,, $29,800; Waynes- burg Deposit Bank. $18,250: McKln ney Deposit" Bank, $10,500 ; Bank of Moreland, $5,800. There may be and likely will be changes in these figures as subscriptions will mjore than probably come in for a day or so yet. It appears that the Sum total of bonds sold will reach $350,000, nearly $12,000 more than this county was requested to sell. The Interior Journal congratulates Messrs. Hocker, Shanks and all others who helped to make the drive the great success It was and hopes that it has been or some little assistance in the great work that has been done. PAID FOR BOND IN DIMES For three years Miss Alice White. daughter of Mr.-Isaiah . White, of Moreland, played the. role of treas urer for her nephew, a little son of Mr. and Mrs. George Hunn, who with their children were killed in a col lision between their car and a train some six months ago. She held for the little fellow 500 dimes and the other day she put the 500 pieces of money in a Liberty Bond. It is probable that no other bond sold during the present campaign was paid for with as many pieces or uncle sam s money as this one, Mr. J. L. McKce Riffe made the sale. DR. A. GATLIFF DEAD Dr. A. Gatliff, one of the richest and biggest men in fcastern Ken tucky, is dead after a brief illness, aged 70. He was reared on a mountain farm, educated himself and aft erward became interested in the coal operators in Kentucky. He was a staunch democrat and a Baptist.
