Easter Sunday, the Christian I'ass
o: the festival ot tho resumption
ot Crist, came this year just t' lays
before its latest possible date.
The early Christians cclebrate'l Eas
ter on the day of the Jewish Passover
that is on the day of the full moon
which occurs on March 'Jl, or next
thereafter. But the Council of Nice
in the year :12.1, decreed that Easter is
the first Sunday after this full moon of
March. If this full moon occurs on a
Sunday, the Sunday is Easter. By
this arrangement, Easter can come
not earlier than March -2, nor later
than April 25.
As Ash Wednesday Is the first day
of Lent, so the Saturday before Easter
Is Its last. On Easter morning the
penances and self-denials of the Len
ton season cease and the devout are
free to make the most they can of the
late spring pleasures which comes be
fore the dog days.
Ere the hour for Sunday school ar
rived the young ladles and gents and
little boys and girls were donned In
their Easter suits and colored eggs
galore. The young ladies, that is most
of them, appeared blooming as the
morning rose, and the fresh, bright
ribbons on their hats made them ap
pear very charming to the young men,'
especially. The day was a most lovely
one throughout, "Old Sol" beaming
forth in all his glory during the entire
day, arid many availed themselves of
the tine weather for a stroll over the
city. -The exercises at the churches
were unusually largely attended.
sT. I.VKK's ( III KI II.
The Easter services at the St. Luke's
church yesterday morning were of a
brilliant character, and the custom of
attending divine services once a year,
was faithfully preserved by the mem
bers of Knights Templar who, in full
uniform, were present in a body at the
services. The sermon by the pastor.
Be v. Burgess, was from the 4th and
ith verse of the tirst chapter of Rcvc-
lations. The greatest performance of
man as exemplified In Christ's giving
up His life, was given by the speaker,
to be unselfish and self-sacrilicing. His
sermon contained a vivid word picture
of the scene on Mount Calvary during
the crucifixion and the resurrection,
and ascension following. At the close
of the sermon the pastor spoke many
words of praise to the Knights Tem
plar, of which he Is a member.
The sermon was pleasantly Inter
spersed with sweet music by the choir,
and the altar was profusely decorated
with beautiful Easter lilies, ferns and
numerous other flowers.
( IIItlSTIAS I HI IUII.
The special music consisted of two
anthems "Eye Hath Not Seen," from
the Holy City and Easter Gloria by
Lorenz, and a solo, "Redemption" by
Rev. Youtzy's subject was "The
Power of His Besurrcctlon." The text
wasl'hli. 11:10; "That I may know Him
and the power of Ills resurrection."
The resurrection Is the greatest fact
In history. Men and nations have
risen and fallen, but connected with
no other manor nation Is there a fact
comparable, with this event, which oc
curred In an out of the way corner of
the world. No doubt that at that
time it seemed Inslgnltlccnt, but today
It Is considered a world event.
The resurrection was predicted In
song by Hebrew poet, declared by their
prophets, taught and consumated by
Jesus Christ himself, and faithfully
preached by his lApostles. It Is the
basis of the Christian religion. We
rejoice over his birth, but without the
resurrection the birth would long ago
have been forgotten.
It Is the highest attestation of the
Sonshlp of Christ, that Cod requires
all men everywhere to repent and ac
cept his atonement, that he has ap-
pointed a day when Jesus shall Judge
the world, and that there is to be a
How did Paul want to know him?
By actual experience, by having the
shlrlt of 111m who raised up Jesus from
dead to dwell in htm. Why did he
want to know him? For the effect it
would havr upon his own life; for the
effect It would have upon other lives;
for the transformation it would work
in society and the governments of tho
world. The speaker gave forceful il
lustrations of the changes the Chris
tian religion lias wrought in society
If one is tempted to doubt the force
because it is not visible, let him look
about him for physical, mental and
moral forces, the presence of which
can lu' detected only by their effects.
Let us accept the power of Christ and
permit it to not only resurrect us from
death of sin. hut gradually change us
into the image of lllm who was will
ing to give Himself for us.
MirnmnisT iu i: u.
Beautiful Easter exercises were ren
dered last night at the Methodist
church, which was tilled to its full
seating capacity by a large and atten
tive audience. The church was artis
tically decorated with ferns, palms,
lilies and other flowers. The entire
evening was devoted to the Easter
Cantata, which was rendered by a
chorus of forty voices under the skill
ful direction of Mrs. E. H. Wescott.
Each number of the program was
pleasantly diversified by the Interpre
tation by Rev. Iloulgate preceding the
rendition. Several numbers by the
male chorus, with bass and tenor solos,
were highly appreciated by the con
gregation. The solo rendered by Don
York was listened to wit h vast pleas
ure. From the beginning to the end
the exercises were a profound success,
and much credit is due Mrs. E. II.
Wescott for the perfect harmony of
voices that existed in the chorus.
The morning was devoted to com
munion services yesterday, thirty new
members uniting with the church and
Will Baird being ordained as an elder.
The pulpit was decorated with flowers
aud , the Easter spirit was manifested
throughout the musical service.
The evening was devoted to an
Easter Cantata, which was rendered
by a chorus of twenty-four voices.
The program was opened with "Braise
Ye the Mighty (Sod," by the chorus
with baritone solo and duets, and the
entire program was carried out in a
very creditable manner, under the
direction of Mrs. L. K. Hasse. "Light
of the World" by a nuartet of ladies,
"He Knows it All" by a male quartet,
and "Crown Him with Many Crowns''
were among those numbers worthy of
special mention, although the entire
program was a decided success, and
was listened to by an exceedingly large
and enthusiastic audience.

FORTUNATELY HOT SERIOUSLY HURT
A runaway that might have resulted
in serious injury to tlie occupants of
the buggy, occurred Monday morning
while Mr. and Mrs. Gamble and Mrs.
Imngan, who Is visiting with them,
were driving down Eighth street from
tlie Columbian school building. When
a short way down the hill a bolt In the
neckyoke broke, allowing the tongue
to fall to the ground and the team
became frightened by the buggy strik
ing them In the Hanks. Mrs. Gamble
who was driving at tlie time, handed
the lines to the county superintendent
and Jumped from the buggy In order
that he might be in a position to con
trol the team which Immediately broke
Into a gallop. But before the Super
tendent was able to check the gait of
tlie ponies the tongue was thrust Into
the ground, overturning the buggy
Mr. Gamble being pitched onto the
heels of the ponies and Mrs. Dungan
thrown to one side. The Superinten
dent received several kicks from the
demoralized team, but fortunately
none of them were serious, and the
ladles escaped from the accident with
only a severe shaklng-up. The team
ran as far as Sixth street, where they
were caught, but the buggy was a
complete wreck, and It was Indeed a
miraculous escape from Injury of the
ladles and the Superintendent.

I'lattsmouth has business men who

who have grown rich here, to still
more greatly enhance their property
through their liberality. Itlsasliamo
that such conditions exist, but these
