"KEEP THE HOME PIRE8 BURNING" You sing very often "Keep th( Home Fires Burt^ina," and you sing it very delightfully, but I am sure you, think again and again while singing "Keep the Home Fires Burning" that It is not you that keep the home fires burning. Oh, thank God, people of America, that you live in this happy, in this beautiful land, so far away from the havoc and the ravages and the tragedy of war. "Keep the Home Fires Burning." Remember your home fires are burning today because myriad home fires In another nation have been put out. Your homes are free through the sacrifice of other homes in their de-fense; your little children are safe and happy through the sacrifice of countless thousands of little children in other lands. "Keep the Home Fires Burning." Your home ; fires are burning in the shelter-of those front lines stretching across the fields of France, the frontier of your country is not your own coast, it is this trench carved line across the fields of France. You know I have sometimes walked up and down, those front line trenches in ths cold, rainy, inclement weather and I have asen the little fires of the lads in the line, little fire buc^tets, Just buckets with holes knocked into them, and a handful of coal or wood or charcoal, and there they were burning and sputtering fitfully in the moisture of the trenches. I have looked at them and thought, what ^tiful fires they are! I looked again and | said: "No, they are grand-fires, the g.-andest fires In the world, becausc.they were the advance ^uard of-the finis of freedom the wide World over," Oh, yes, keep the .home fires burning, bUWemembcr it is only possible for you to do this In the shelter of the life and sacrifice of your lads in the line. . .But, oh, how much It^ has cost IPraWee, that line 400 mi'les long? What is the breadth of the area of devastatri^n? You take the en-'erny front-line,-400vrndes long;'tTo .front' (Jfie,tr�rt?)�,-.a-j;messages of cheer and comfort fromHv^o well known city ministers; (By Rov.

"Comfort -ye,, comfort ye my peo-pl�, aalth your: God," was the sustaining word of a prophet of- old In any text more suited to our present ilnic ot nhed, Hnd suitable for many day conditions? Has not this thought | a day since and today. of cheorfulnofs been the keynote of of cheerCviliiess been the very jnvotnl point of the life of the nations fighting as allied forces in the war? Has hot the right of cheerfulness boon the keynote ol all .the deliUerations of the war councils? Has not this been the spirit animnting our lads all the wa.v through. this long and arduous campaign?

Xor has it been in the trenches alone or among the forces on land or sea Uiat this spirit ot che.artulne3S has been evident. While the submarines were carrying on their devastating �work against tlie ships plowing the .seas, and the nations ot Italy, France for the gallant lads who will not coma homo again. Surely it is a day when people.need comfort and steadying, when every true man and woman should carry out tl\e injunction, "Comtort ye My people." Otherwise the obligations of brotherhood and humanity are dlsrs' garded and sordid selfishness triumphs. The church has her proper;wearing their masks. ,1 (Prom Our Own Corre>Doni1�nt> .

For me ^.he German press and universal havoc, this general prostration ot the nattons ot JBurnpe, this rocking of the battlements ot our own separate fortress, we are asked, with an air ot simplicity which would be quite, touching it we could imagine it to proceed from a mere defect ot un-standing, "Why are we not at peace?" , . We have stepped forward to raise tHe fallen-to sustain the oppressed-to. interpose bet-ween the prostrate victim and the descending sword of the conqueror. Aptly as -Canning's deounciation of a false, short-sighted and weak-kneed pacifisni fitted Its exponents in his day and circumstances, now jnuch more cogently does it not apply to the present situation? The advance of marfkind in the' arts ivnd science has lent to the machinatlona of the kaiser and his henchmen a menace many times ndore subtle and dangerous than that of Napoleon at the height of his military prowess.
