The choir rendered two Easter

violin in the skillful hands of
Mrs. Troop added much to the

Easter discourse, which was full
of hope and comfort to the believ
ers. Among other things Rev.
Ciade said: "Easier festival is the
largest observed of all the Chris
tian festivals on the calendar. It
brings into view the resurrection
of our Savior and through Him
the resurrection of the dead.
Church ritualism and church
formalism cannot, destroy the
powr of its value. The Cireek
church, the church of Rome and
all Protestant denominations join
in hailing the Redeemer's triumph
from the tomb. Jesus and the
resurrection has been Ihe glad
theme of preachers and worship
pers, poets and philosophers, for
nineteen hundred years. Easter
can never be forgotten for it cele
brates Christ's glorious resurrec
tion and complete triumph over
all the powers of death and hell.

of Easier there comes the echo
to heaven and earth of Christ's

Christ's resurrection. Rev. fiade
said: "Over the arched gateway

The Assessor of Rock Bluffs
Precinct Has a Joy Ride
As the assesor of Rock Mutt's
precinct was making his rounds
listing the personal belongings
and chattels of the citizens of his
precinct last week in his single
buggy and behind his trusty gray-
nag, he unexpectedly took a joy
ride which he had not counted on.
As the assessor was descend
ing one of the gentle slopes which
abound in the eastern part of the
precinct, the bit in the mouth of
bis foaming charger gave way and
left nothing with which the
officer could check its speed. The
buggy and the assessor crowded
down upon the mare, and the
faster she went the more fright
ened she became, and at the 11 r
farm house passed she turned in
and nearly ran over the lady of
the house. Nothing seemed to
check the frightened animal, and
on she sped until she came in col
lision wilh the pig pen, into which
the gray, wilh the buggy and
driver still intact, plunged, and
where she was stopped.
There was, no particular dam
age done, unless to the feelings of
the joy rider himself, as nothing
as broken but the bridle bit.
