Methodist Honor Board.- Before a crowded attendance at the East Devonport Church last night, an Honor Board was unveiled in memory of those members of the church who had enlisted for active service. A solo, "Jesu, Lover of My Soul," was rendered by Miss F. M'Call, Miss R. Barnes presiding at the organ. The preacher gave an address on the subject of religion as a factor in the making of manhood. He said that Christianity had produced a high type, as seen in the great reformers of history and the readers of the time.

Religion was also a great factor in the making of patriotism, teaching ideals which made for love of country and for law and order. The churches had sent nearly all their young men to the war, and the erection of honor boards preserved their names as a reminder of the sacrifices which they made.
