of the ChurchesMethodist Church Packed to Overflowing
By Crowd to Hear Musical Services.
The Kapler sun .shown bright
and clear yesterday morning, and
although the air was cool the
churches of the city were crowd
ed for the annual celebration of
At the Methodist church, as
well as all others cuhrches in the
city, the services began with the
Sunday school, the rooms being
decorated with palms, ferns and
Easier lilies. Across the arch
above the minister's desk was
suspended the "Easier Greeting"
in large white letters festooned
with green foliage. There was a
large attendance at (he Sunday
school, as at all of the services
of the church.
Jlev. Austin, at the morning
service, gave an exceedingly well
timed discourse, his theme being,
"Illusions, or Mistakes or Mis
conceptions of Christ," basing his
sermon on the scriptural incident
of Mary at, the tomb mistaking
Christ for the gardner.
The evening service was one of
song and consisted of an Easter
Oratorio by Dultois, "The Seven
Last Words of Christ," a master
piece in music, beautifully and
sweetly sung by the choir and
Glee club of the church. The
principal solos were sung by Mr.
Don York of this city and Mr.
Lucius Prior, a tenor, from the
Omaha Mendelshou choir,
The auditorium of the church
was packed with auditors half an
hour before the lime to begin, and
when the lecture room was
thrown open il loo soon tilled
with people anxious to hear the
musical program. He fore the
singers took their places Miss
Cook played a violin selection, ac
companied by Hugh Cecil with
claronet. and II. E. Wescott with
piano. The tones of the instru
ments had hardly ceased until the
platform was quietly but. quickly
filled wild singers. The Ilev. Mr.
Austin pronounced an invncal Ion,
and the Oratorio was preceded by
a solo, "A (ireen Hill Far Away,"
sung by Mrs. E. H. Wescott.
The solos and choruses were
each preceded by the words read
by Mr. Austin. Each of the sing
ers sang I heir parts with expres
sion, the choruses were most ex
cellently rendered, particularly
the softer passages. Mr. Prior,
Nearly all the Easter Hats worn
by all the best dressed women of
Plattsmouth will be from our store.
The authentic styles this season are extremely
varied and they are graceful and harmonions in
color, but more than ever, they require the skillful
individual touches that adapt them to the faces of
Miss Leona Bryant, our head designer has been
one of our most successful milliners. She is a style
authority and every hat in this department must be
absolutely correct. Her advice and aid in the se
lecting and adapting of the proper Easter Hat will
be of wonderful advantage to you.

who took the tenor solos, has a
fine tenor voice, which he had un
der perfect control, his part be
ing one very diflicult to sing. The
baritone solos by Mr. York were
as tine as one ever hears in any
city. There are few singers hav
ing the range and compass and
smoothness of lone possessed by
Mr. York's fine voice. The Ora
torio was followed by a chorus,
"Christ We Du Adore Thee," when
the audience was dismissed with
the benediction by the pastor.
At the Presbyterian Church.
The Easter services at the
Presbyterian church yesterday
morning were of more than or
dinary interest. A large con
gregation assembled lo hear Rev.
L. W. (lade preach on the theme,
"The Life After Death." lie gave
his auditors a strong discourse,
taking for the basis of his re
marks, the words of Job, "If a
man die, shall he live again?"
The special music consisted of
an anthem by the choir, "Sing
Alleluah Forth," by Dudly
Huck, the solo parts being sung
by Miss Mathilda Vallery, Mr.
Clarence Slaals and Mr. Ralph
Marshall. Miss Vallery also ren
dered a solo, "Thy Father
Livelh." After Ilev. Cade's dis
course, Holy Communion was ad
ministered. Rev. Cade's dis
course was a clear presentation
of the reasons for his belief in
the immortality of Hie soul, his
clusing sentences were as follows:
"Easter comes to tell us of
Christ's complete triumph over
all the powers of death and hell.
It comes to tell us that earth's
burdens grow liirhler at thought
of him who broke the bands of
the garden grave. It comes to
the broken and the crushed, with
the sweet fragrance of the bright
an unfading (lowers of eternal
hope. Easter day comes to tell
us that earth bath no sorrow that
heaven cannot cure. It tells us
that dear departed friends that
went out from us are-not lost in
the"1 night, shadows, ' but have
reached the dawn of the eternal
"0, ye troubled souls! O, ye
who have lived in the nighl of
bereavement, with prospects
gone and hearts broken', I have a
cheering message for you. This
is your glorious Eastertide! Rise
up and greet the dawn! And as
God is now painting visons of a
new life on field and valley and
forest and tinting the spring hills
with Jieauly and pluming the
birds for their sweet singing, see
you not' in the radiance of resur
rection morning the resplendent
sunset tinging the clouds with
golden, and the tracing rainbow
of promise after the departing
storm." .. .

Rev. A. L. Zink, in delivering
the Easter message, was at his
best, and preached a strong,
logical and eloquent discourse on
the theme, "Does Death End All ?"
The music was especially adapt
ed to the occasion. The Easter
exercises for the Sunday school
occurred in the evening and were
in charge of the Loyal Daugh

An Organization That Is All That
Its Name Denotes, and Worthy
of Much Study.
With the growth of the railroad
business seenjs to come a some
what disproportionate increase in
the number of accidents, especial
ly as to injuries to employes in
the service. The recent efforts of
the Burlington company to im
prove this condition, through the
establishment of a bureau of
safety, is welcomed by employes
and also by the public. Nowadays
we all do some traveling and it is
cheering to think that the risks
connected therewith are being cut
down. We are willing to take our
share of "thrills," but prefer to
pass on to sonic esteemed con
temporary all our right, title and
interest ia any old railroad wreck
This safety bureau has at its
head a superintendent, Mr. 1. M.
Switzcr, who has made a study of
the work. He is assisted by in
spector's in the field. On each
operating division is a committee,
chosen from oflicers and other
employes. These committees
meet once a month and talk over
safety mailers brought up for dis
cussion, and in this way defects
are corrected and safer methods
adopted. The tendency is to
promote greater caution upon
the part of men engaged in this
hazzardous occupation. At large
shop towns,' lhke Plattsmouth,
there is a sub-comniillee for the
shops. The shop committee here
is as follows:
William Baird, shope superin
tendent; R. B. Hayes, general
foreman; E. C. Hill, storekeeper;
Joe Wales, machinist; J. F. Jan

Mr. F. B. Thomas of Omaha,

To the Voters of Cass County.
Having filed for the ofllce of
county assessor, il is but right
that you should know something
about me. I live on a farm about
midway between Ashland and
South Bend. Have farmed for
about fifty years. Am not a
politician, and never was a can
didate for an ofllce before in my
life, ami would not have thought
of il, bad it not been for some of
my friends. Have been associat
ed with the polilicial parties and
churches for !ver forty years
more with the churches than with
the parties. I voted the repub
lican ticket for twenty years and
the democratic about the same
length of time, but for county
ollicc have voted for the men that
I thought best, filled for the place,
whether they be republican,
democratic, prohibitionist or
socialist. Party lines and church
lines are fading. People as a rule
do not boast of vol ing the straight
ticket as they once did. I think
we will always have two or more
political parties, but I hope that
the church lines will keep fading
until there will be no line.' It is
no dim now il can scarcely be
noticed. II, is aljnosL'.the : same in

They aim to do what is right, but
have different opinions.. It is not
so much what a man believes as
how he acts. The record thai is
being keirt is not a record of be
liefs, but a record of deeds. Have
you fed the hungry and lodged
the stranger? However, I am run
ning for. assessor, and think some
things ought to be exempt from'
taxation. Whatever does not
bring in an income should not be
assessed. A man's house, fur
niture, farm implements and
barns not only do not bring in
anything, but are a continual ex
pense. To illustrate: Here is a
man with an 80-nrre farm im
proved with house, barn, yards,
lots,' gardens, etc. Here is an
other with six or eight eighties
not improved nothing taken off
for lots and yards. Is il right to
charge the one on Ihe small farm
more than on Ihe full 80 just be
cause he must have a place to
live? I think il is not. We
shouldn't lax a man on some
thing that brings in no revenue.
I believe if we would all go by the
Golden Rule, "Whatsoever ye
would that men should do to yon,
do ye also to them," il would set
