It is our weakness as surely as we are Americans. And unle.-s we start building up along that lin-. we shall not long last as a national v o. ld power. I am not one who wouid op pose progress and a change in living conditions which naturally come with inventions and greater enlighten ment, but too many of us, both young and old are living too much in automo biles and not enough in the home. We must get back to the hearthstone and there spend more time in teaching our children those old virtues which are so essential to the building of character, HONESTY, MORALITY. SOBRIETY, INDUSTRY AND GOD LINESS. It was this home training which made George Washington the "Father of his country." He com manded the army of the American Revolution, BUT MARY WASHING TON COMMANDED HIM FIRST. When Henry Clay lay dying his pas tor sat by his bedside to do what he could to comfort him.
