Sin;, Queen, Cabinet Minister
and Army Officers at Serv
ice at St. Paul's.
London, April 20. America's part
ncrship in the world war was cele
brated by a religious service today
in St. Paul's cathedral. ' The Stars
and Stripes floated from the holiest
toner of the parliament buildings at
Westminster the, first time a foreign
flag was ever displayed on that emi
nence and flew above all govern
ment buildings.
The service in the historic cathe
dral, where the most momentous oc
casions of national rejoicing and
mourning have been solemnized, was
unprecedented in being tne comment
oration of an act of anothe.- nation.
Overhead in the dim arches hung
the dust weighted and battle torn
flags of famous British regiments,
some of which had been carried
the American war of the revolution,
while among the tombs and memor
ials of famous soldiers ranged about
the walls were the names of those
who fought against the colonies in
that war.
King and Queen Attend.
The cathedral seats nearly 4.000
persons and was filled to its further
most recerses. All seats were occu
pied when King George and Queen
Mary entered, followed by the may
ors and aldermen of the twentv-aix
boroughs of London, wearing their
scarlet robes of office.
The American embassy and consu
lar staffs occupied front teats with
representatives of the Pilgrims, the
American society, the American
Luncheon club and the American
Chamber of Commerce. In the
diplomatic section were officers in the
uniforms of France, Russia, Italy, Bel
gium, Serbia, Montenegro, Roumania
and Japan.
Throughout the cathedral the army
khaki and the navy blue were 'con
spicuous. In the reserved seats there
were a large number of wounded of
ficers and soldiers, including many
Canadians and several Americans
serving with the Dominion forces.
Chancellor of the Exchequer -Bonar
Law represented the cabinet in the
absence of Premier Lloyd George.
Sermon From Historic Text
The service which followed con
sisted of the Lord's prayer, Psalms
xlvi and cxliv, lessons from Isaih lxi,
the Apostles' Creed, a prayer, the
"Battle Hymn of the Republic," a ser
mon by Bishop Brent, the hymn,
"Through the Night of Doubt and
Sorrow," benediction by the arch
bishop of Canterbury, the singing of
"The Star Spangled Banner" .and
"God Save the King."
The clergy of St. Paul's conducted
the service, assisted by the archbiah
i ) of Canterbury and the bishop of
I or.don. The text from which Bishop
Brent spoke was chosen from Macca
bees, second chapter, thirteenth verae,
"Having gone apart from the elders,
he resolved that they should go forth
and try the matter in fight, by the
help of God. And committing the
decision to the Lord of the world and
exhorting them that were with him
to contend manfully, even unto death,
for the laws, the temple, the city, the
country and' the commonwealth, he
pitched his camp, having given out to
his men the watchword, 'Victory is
God's.'" I i
Twenty-Two U. 8. Veterans.
One of the most picturesque of the
numerous processions to St. Paul's
was a group of twenty-two veterans
of the American civil -war, who
, marched from their humble head
' quarters near London bridge carry
ing American flags and a banner in
scribed, "American Civil War Veter
ans; not for ourselves, but for our
Three of the prayers offered at the
St. Paul's service were specially pre
pared for the occasion, the first one
"Thou. 0 God, hast put Into the
hearts of the president and people of
America to join the allied nations in
a great war in defense of liberty, hu
manity and justice. We pray Thee
to grant victory to our forces."
The second prayer was:.
"We pray Thee to guide the presi
dent and those to whom Thou hast
committed the government of the
United States, Grant them special
wisdom and understanding that they
may fulfill Thy divine purposes."
And the third:
"We thank Thee for the abundant
blessing Thou hast bestowed on the
people of the United States. We
pray hey may labor always to ad
vance Thy kingdom on earth, that
peace, happiness, truth and justice
may everywhere flourish and
abound." ,
Other members of the royal family
present in the cathedral included
Oueen Alexandra, the princess royal,
Princess Maud of Fife, the duke of
Connaught, Princess Patricia, Prin
cess Christian and Princesi Victoria
of Schleswig-Holstein.
ADMIRAL HENRY T. MAYO AND HIS FLAGSHIP Admiral Henry T. Mayo, commander
of the United State Grand fleet and the mighty super-dreadnought that is hi flagship. If
the United States fleet goes into action at any time against the German High Seas fleet it
would be the Pennsylvania with Admiral Mayo on board that would be in the van of

Washington, April 20. As one
step toward meeting opposition in
congress to the administration's
army plans, President Wilson sent a
letter to Representative Hevelin of
Kansas explaining what is meant by
selective draft and expressing earnest
hope that the bill drafted by the War
department would be passed.
The letter said in part:
"Our object is a mobilization of all
the productive and active forces of
the nation and their development to
the highest oint of efficiency and
the idea of the selective draft is that
those should be chosen for service m
the army who can be most readily
spared from the prosecution of the
other activities, which the country
must engage in and to which it must
devote a great deal ot its best energy
and capacity.
"The volunteer system does not do
this. When men choose themselves
they sometimes choose without due
regard to their other responsibilities.
Men may come from the farms or
from the mines or from the factories
or centers of business who ought not
to come, but ought to stand back of
the armies in the field and see that
they get everything that they need
and that the people of the country
are sustained m the meantime.
The president and administration
leaders in congress are confident of
the ultimate enactment of the army
bill without material changes.
Most Effective Remedy
Mother Had Ever Used
Dr. Caldwell's Syrup Pepsin
Relieves Baby When Other
Medicines Failed
There is nothing so necessary to a
child's health and comfort as regu
larity of the bowels. All children
are especially susceptible to stomach
trouble and any overstrain of the sen
sitive organism has a tendency to ob
struct elimination. This condition is
responsible for much of the illness of
To relieve constipation a mild laxa
tive should be employed. Cathartics
and purgatives arc violent in their
action and should be avoided. Mrs.
Alfred Dubois, Mt. Holly, N. J..
says Dr. Caldwell's Syrup Pepsin is
without doubt the most effective rem
edy for constipation she has ever
used and that it is the only remedy
she could find for her baby. Little
Earl was badly constipated during
his first year and nothing she tried
seemed to help him until she got a
bottle of Dr. Caldwell's Syrup Pepsin.
Now he is a fine, strong, healthy
boy, and she thanks Dr. Caldwell
for it -
Dr. Caldwell's Syrup Pepsin is a
combination of simple laxative herbs
with pepsin, free from opiates or nar
cotic drugs; it acts gently without
griping or other discomfort, and ap-
peals to children because of its pleas
ant taste. Druggists everywhere selt
it for fifty cents a bottle and every
mother should have it in the house for
use whenever occasion arises.
To avoid imitations and ineffective
substitutes always be sure to ask for
rtr r'aMu1t'a Svrun Peosin. See
that a facsimile of Dr. Caldwell's sig
nature and his portrait appear on the
yellow carton in which the bottle is
packed. A trial bottle free of charge
can be obtained by writing to Dr. W.
B. Caldwell, 455 Washington St.,
Monticello, Illinois.
