Kindly send what yoo feel you can spare for this important work to Smith F.

Bm- ggVa, BaitMad Av*., Fseegerk MORE SOLDMiS VISfT ARMY HEADQUARTERS (Official Contribution) Saturday night after a amall at¬ tendance f(»' the past three weeks since the 42nd Division "went over" and the 4l8t came to Camp Milla, things took a jump, and the Ladiea' Committee served about 600 cupa of coffee,/with cake and sociability. The "boys" are nearly all from the West, and enjoyed themselves, it was quite evident. One young lad who was with us a week ago, walked all the way from Gamp 'to viait with us again that night We rather think he didn't have any pass eitber, but that was not a thing for na to inquire about, and we doubt if there was any reason why he didn't have one beyond the fact that it happens to be the rule in the 41st Division that a man can¬ not go over 6 miles from camp with¬ out the requisite permission, which practically confines them to the Vil¬ lage of Hempstead, where they are so crowded some of the boys get lone¬ some. The rush was not quite so large on Snnday night, but the ladies were kept busy during the evening. Men on Duty The new plan of assig^ning one duty man as captain for the 'big days" worked out nicely, relieving the chairman of the committee from act¬ ive duty all the time. Saturday Olaf Magnusson was in charge and Snnday Frederick Plump. Sunday being a bitter cold day to walk around the streets, the cup of hot coffee that Capt. Plump and his assistents hand¬ ed out was accepted wiih thanks by our visitors and the rooms were filled from 10 a. m. to late at night. Next Saturday H. B. Kennedy will be act¬ ing captain and Sunday, Robert W. Nutt Desk for Registering The new desk for the book for reg¬ istering at Headquarters was donated with th* compliments of Lee-Fatter- son Co. It was well worth while, as indicated by the increased interest on the part of our visitors. The flrst register has been finished) and filed in our public library. Contributiona Mrs. H. Schloas Slbe.

WANTAGH (Special to Naaaau County Review) At the Union Thanksgiving aervice of the Methodist, Baptist and Pres¬ byterian Churches held at the Pres¬ byterian Church yesterday moming, the pastor. Rev. J. Sidney Gould, preached the sermon of the dsy, tak¬ ing for his text the verse begrinning: "In nothing be anxious". We are fortunate in being able to reproduce hia discourse in fnll: Philippians 4:0. "In nothing be anxious; but in everything by prayer and application with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God." The doty directiy enjoined by thia verse of Scripture ia to pray. The caution that opens the verse is sgainst anxiety. And the condition imposed is that all prayer must be accompan¬ ied with thanksgiving. What more fitting verse therefore could we light upon for this Thanksgiving occasion than this. We have great taslca be¬ fore us that call for great aacrificea in the fac* of which we are over¬ borne with anxiety. We have been aummoned by Ebcecutivei Call, by the traditions of the past and by onr sense ef favors received to render thanks to God informal and sincere | acknowledgement And the situation, | anxiety, tasks and sense of relation i to God will lead us to prayer. | It is a custom of long standing that the Thanksgiving sermon shall treat of National affairs. The cuatom has grown up from tbe sense of fitness that the united voice and soul our Nation should solemnly acknowledge I God as the giver of life, secnrity ano , prosperity. We have yfJeat things to! atk of God at this tim*. But before l we ask them tet Ui takfc inventory of I the thinga fer Which gratitude is due i Him. The blessings we have received have been nxanifold. We have certain things in common as individuals of which we should remind ourselves at this seaaion. The year has brought to all of us the common everyday blessings of food and raiment. None of us have been required to go hungry and none unclothe<L We have had homes to which we could repair for rest, comfort and that sacred fellow¬ ship and love that lightens the mon¬ otony and burden of ddily toiL Our friends have been many and kind. They have ministered to us in sorrow and trouble, and have brightened many a cloudy day and lightened many a heavy task with their sympa¬ thy and appreciation. We have enjoyed a reasonable measure of healtii. If sickness has shadowed some days the sunshine of returning strength has broken upon us again with added splendor and we have rejoiced to live, to love and to work. And what shall I say of the blessing of books, those dear compan¬ ions of the quiet hour and above all of the Book of Books with ite charm and power, and light and leading? Or if I call your thought to your church and the faith that ia there strengthened, the sorrow that is as¬ suaged, the hope that is made to cling more firmly and the dear fel¬ lowship with those high and holy as¬ pirations that live and linger in tfae Church of God what sense of grati¬ tude must stir within you. These blessings, so common, yet so vital to human happlnesa and the de¬ velopment of higher character, we ar* prone to take for granted, and not see tbe hand of a gracious Heavenly Father reaching down in kindness to the children whom he loves. So let us this moming and ever and always lift eor hearta in gratitude to Him who is the giver of every good and perfect gift, before we presume to lay before Him fresh demands for extraordinary favors in thia time of deep anxiety and distress. But beyond the common individual bleaaings which we personally rejoice, there are things that aa a nation we bav« reaaon to be profoundly thank¬ ful fw. Though we are at war and eur young men have gone from oa and our resources of credit and money are being greatiy taxed, no invading army bas set foot within our b«rd«rs. We bave baen distnrbsd by alien *n*mi*s tiu«nS*ning oor peace and aecurity, oor industries and commerce, but our bamea are l«ft to u^ untouched and onr villages and citiea intact and na- diaturbed. It would be wickedly pra- sawptiaus in us to boast over Pnuie* aad Balgium and Italy and Kaaaia. that we are more favorad tban tbay, bnt wc taa he thankful tbat we bav* till now no ravage of war and ao deso¬ lation within onr bordan. The labor of oor banda and brains has been abundantiy bl»sssd by God during tha past yaar. Onr fiaUs, flocks, herds, orebards, vineyards, atlnaa, foaasts, mills and fKtories have ponrad forth their prodneta in a steady and increasing stranm. ilf tbara ba a reatrietioo in oar personal raaonrces and prodneta it is noi ba- caaa* th* band of onr Lord haa not been gradonsly asanifaatad, but be¬ cause w* have trmiy shared with, those who are making common cause witb ns against a comnon cnemy..And for the substance and the spirit to give and share in a glorioua under¬ taking we are grateful to God who haa bmintifu/iy bleaaed us.

That thiS'amonnt will be over¬ subscribed by the people of tbe State, is confidently predicted by tbe organ¬ izers of the campaign, who bave set the 1917 goal at 16,000,000 aaato, an increase of approximately 3,000/X)0 over the total of 191S, when 12,07ft, 413 seals were sold. The American Bed Cross has urged' thorough-going co-operation betw**n ita local chaptera and the variona State and local anti-tuberenlosis as¬ sociations to increase the total salee of Christmas Seals tbis year to an un¬ precedented flgnre.
