At the Presbyterian Church. A large congregation greeted Rev. L. W. Cade at the Presby terian church at the opening of the morning service yesterday. The choir rendered two Easter anthems and Mrs! Edna Eaton a solo, aeoempanied by Miss Yerna Colo, with pipe organ, and Mrs. Will Troop with violin. The violin in the skillful hands of Mrs. Troop added much to the pecial music. Ilev. Hade delivered a short 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. Tt marks find's approval of the sacrifice and alonemenl made on Cajvary's cross. When we think of Easier there comes the echo to heaven and earth of Christ's triumphant words, uttered in Ihe darkest of earth's shadows, 'It is finished.' " .Ulor a clear and convincing presentation of the proofs of Christ's resurrection. Rev. fiade said: "Over the arched gateway to one of our great cemeteries in the easl is inscribed the words Tnlil Ihe daybreak and th shadows flee away.' How fitting are I nose wonts to us who (Mm in and lay our beloved dead from sight, and go our way to rejoice in a glorious resurrection. The risen Christ keeps us. He lead us through life's dusty way when it is dim nnd dark; He carries us across earth's deepest chasms He holds our hand that our foot steps slip not, and He rests us to leep the sleep that men, call ealh nnd keeps us 'until Ihe daybreak and Ihe shadows flee away.' In the resurrection of Christ is the hope of our resur rection and reunion with our friends. Our nnd her, our father, our brothers and sisters went out from us on that long-distant af ternoon. They went into the shadows, and in the hope of Easter morning, I ask you, was it death or dawn? When you visit that loved spot, where the grass grows refreshingly green in the springtime, across which sweeps the summer zephyrs, and where you delight to plant sweet flowers, when you visit that spot, I fancy there comes to you the blessed thought: lien I go Homo I hope to see A little face look up nt me, Unchanged from what il used to be; When I go homo,' "Easter gives this greeting lighl." At the close of the sermon two young men were received into the church, alter winch the sacra ment of the Lord's Supper was observed. The Assessor of Rock Bluffs Precinct Has a Joy Ride Not Antipicated. 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. House leamiiiinig mm iiasiit scratched yet!!
