Flo\vcr8 and muslo wore In prominence
nmong the churches yesterday. The ob
servance of Easier was Ronornl nmotiK ( ill
denominations. The presbytery being In
srsslon hero , n goodly nmount of pulpit
oratory wa * drawn from that bountiful
source. The supplies In the various pulpits
Reamed to bo highly satisfactory , and the
sermons reflected credit upon1 the branch of
the church furnishing such pulpit power.
The weather boliiR favorably for the wear
ing of the new bonnets , and the church at
tractions being special , the pews in all. the
churches were Illlcd , aud in some churches ,
as at St. Paul's ' Episcopal , chairs in the ulslo
wcro culled Into use.
St. Paul's church Is a peculiarly popular
, ) luco of worship , on Easter Sunday. Yester
day Indicated that the popularity has not
waned. The church was crowded , morning
and evening. The Moral decorations were all
In pink and white. The marble baptismal
font was almost hidden with blossoms from
the trees , there being In this n delicate nl-
luslon doubtless to the appropriateness of
the christening services. Easter lilies and
ferns wore In abundance. Several of the
memorial windows wore decorated beauti
fully , noticeably the Stcxvari. window , at
whoso base was n rich mound of flowers.
The musical portion of the service had boon
prepared with ijreat care. It was elaborate
and well executed.
At the Congregational church thcro wcro
some very pleasing dccoiations. Among
them was un arch of green , from which was
suspended a largo boll of roses. Above the
ureh appeared , in golden letter , "Ho is
Uisen. " Thcro wcro numerous Easter lilies ,
lilies of the valley , ferns , etc. The male
quartette gave some Inspiring anthems. The
sermon , on "Tho Destiny of the Soul , " was
by Hov. W. S. Barnes , of Corning. Ho is a
boyish-looking minister , apparently a ito
young in years. His sermon showed no
youthfulncss or frivolity of thought , though.
It was ono of those few sermons to which
justly belongs the udjcutlvo , "sttong. " The
audience listened closely to every word.
Clear In diction , close in reasoning , earnest
In delivery , it was a treat to these who occu
pied the pews.
The Sunday school of this church had
some novel exorcises In connection with the
regular noon session. Some emblems wcro
used , and tncso explained in connection with
the lesson of the day.
In the evening the Juvenile Society of
Christian Endeavor held a pleasing service
in the auditorium of the church , ifi place of
the usual evening preaching service. The
programme consisted of a llowcr service , in
which thp language of each flower was made
a little lesson. Little Ned Walker recited a
brief prayer. Lutio Pryor gave n short ser
mon on "Consider tlio Lilies. " Others who
took part in recitations and songs are : 13ello
Snyder , Robert Wallace , Winnie Mclntyro ,
Meda Kirklaml , Gertie Bennett , Anna
Walker and Etu Otis. It was a unique and
interesting service throughout.
St Xavier's Catholic church was crowded
to its utmost. The services wcro In con
formity with the usual rites and ceremonies
of the church. Special music was given by
the choir. Noticuublo was Millard's mass in
Bb. It was rendered at the morning service ,
and grandly so , much care having been given
by the singers in its preparation.
At the Methodist eh ureh the floral decora
tions were profuse and their arrangement
most appropriate to the Jay. Above the alcove -
cove was the inscription , "Ho Is Hison. " A
hugo arch , reaching from cither side of the
auditorium , uroso over the altar. Upon it
was the following:1 'Wo , Too , Shall Uiso on
That Glorious Morn , " both sentiments cm-
bodying the lesson taught by the day. In
front ot the speaker's desk arose a pyramid
of llowors and smllax , while upon either side
were potted flowers in profusion. The
grouping was beautiful.
The sermon was by the Rev. T. C. Smith ,
of Clurinda , a member of tno presbytery.
The text was in I. Cor. xviO : ! , "Now is Christ
risen from the dead and become the first
fruits of them that slept. " The subject was
treated from n literal standpoint , showing
the speaker to bo a lltcralist in his belief in
the truths and exposition of the stated facts
of scripture. It was an able effort. The au
dience w.is ono of the largest that ever as
sembled within these w.ills and the attention
given the speaker was a decided compliment
The evening services consisted of n Sun
day school missionary concert in whicli reci
tation and song were the essential features.
The collections mudo by the various classes
during the preceding week wcro announced.
The amount was a large ono.
The services at the Presbyterian church
wcro particularly Impressive. The floral
decorations aided in this effect. Upon the
speaker's stand was a beautiful white mal-
tcso cross. ' This is the emblem of the "King's
Uaughto'rs , " and was placed by them. Other
designs appeared hero and there as taste and
the sentiment of the occasion had suggested.
A number of divines were present morn
ing , afternoon and evening , and assisted in
the services. The sermon of the morning
was by the moderator , Rev. O. A. Elliott , of
Logan. Ho spoke from the text found In
Acts " 7 : 3. Ho draw a sharp distinction be
tween admiration and love as the feelings of
men toward God. Also between church
membership and the membership of Christ's
body. The sermon wis : an instructive ono.
The music was an important feature. The
chorus tendered an Easter unthoni nilimra-
bly. Mrs. Judd sang "Resurrection" very ef
fectively as an offertory. The chorus was
under the direction of Prof. Uacteus , with
Will Thlckstun at the organ. -
At . ' ) o'clock p. m. the sacrament of the
Lord's supper waa administered.
The evening services were important , in
that two young men wore ordained for the
ministry. These are Rev. CIcorgo B. Ueed ,
of Walnut , and Rov. John A. Fitch , who re
ceived this setting apart to the work as a
special dedication to the missionary work.
He satis In September for northern China.
The sermon was by the Rov. A. L. Sarcliet ,
of Hedford. The charge was given by Dr.
Phclps , Rov. W , II. Snyder also assisted In
the services. The "Laying on of Hands"
was Impressive. The candidates knelt be
fore tfio altar. The moderator placed bin
hands upon their heads and llio entire pres
bytery gathered about them and placed their
hands upon the heads of the candidates.
Mrs , Orphia Myers sang as a solo , " 1'ho Day
is Done , " and sang it well.
Thn pulult nt the First Baptist church was
lllled by the Rev. W. V. Jeffries , of Malvern.
The contest between right and wrong now in
progress in the world , was the subject ,
taken from thu words of Christ : "Bo of
good chcor. I have overcome the world. "
The effort was an excellent ono , giving the
assurance of llio triumph of good und tha
11 mil conquest ot the world by the children
The decorations upon the altar were very
beautiful , and aided much In the sentiments
expressed In the Easter gathering.
Too evening exercises wore by the Sabbath
school. They woru in harmony with the
day , and were HsU-neil to by a lurpo audi

It is hotter to plant the seed as soon as
it may bo supposed safe to do so , aud depend -
pond on replanting than to wait until
danger of frost is gone. A Into crop , if
overtaken by a dry season , may not
have time to mature before the fall
frosts appear , but it is certain that even
under the most unfavorable circum

is of itself a very important item of the
corn crop. Use seed that is from a tried

An old piece of sod land plowed in the
fall in order to destroy the worms and
allow the frost to pulverize it , and the
land well manured and cross-plowed in
the spring , if not too wet , is considered
the best for corn. The roots of the corn-
plant interlace each other and cover
the whole ground , feeding on all kinds
of plant food that can be appropriated
Any kind of cheap fertilizer will
give the plants a good sotid-oll if ap
plied in the hill. If the soil is rich and
has been well manured the cheapest
substance to use in the hill is land plas

in disintegrating the particles of plant

Ono object of a corn crop should bo
to prepare the land for the crop that is
to follow , as the corn requires constant
cultivation and loaves the ground clean
nnd free from grass and weeds. The
first preparation should be deep plow
ing and thorough pulverization of the
soil , which permits of greater feeding
capacity to the roots and allows the
plants to go down deeper for moisture.
The adherents of deep and shallow cul
tivation of the crop after it is well under
way , now admit that the mode pre
ferred depends on the kind of boil and
the rainfall. It is now known that the
corn roots should not bo disturbed or
broken , as is done by deep cultivation ,
hut that when the season is dry the
shallow cultivation , or simply keeping
about an inch of the soil loose , con
serves moisture and assists the crop by
the top soil serving as a mulch to arrest
the process of evaporation. This will
also keep down the grass and weeds.
If thii soil is lightly stirred after each
rain a vigorous crop cannot ho severely
injured unless by a long-continued
Fluid Hoot Crops.
An acre devoted to carrots , parsnips ,
beets nnd turnips will provide an
nmount of succulent food for winter
use that not only lessons the grain re
quired , but promotes the health and
thrift of the animals. Though low in
nutritious value , yet the enormous
crops that may ho obtained inoro than
recompense for any deficiency that may
exist otherwise. Root crop < largely
take the place of ensilage where biles
have not boon constructed , and one
acre in roots will enable the farmer to
keep more htock and have the animals
in bettor condition than from any other
crop that can he grown.
The difllcuUy with carrots and pars
nips is the extra work required with
the crop after the seed is sown , the
slow germination dobtroying the lines
of the rows , us grass covers the entire
plot hooro ( the needs begin to shove out
thnir young plants , the tedious labor of
Jiuiid-woeding being required. Tills
dilllculty , however , has been overcome
by mixing the boods of quick-germinat
ing plants , such us radiBu , with that of
the carrou or parsnips. The radish
soon comes up , the rows can bo worked ,
und the radish then pulled up and mar
keted or fud to the pigs.- Improved

Another tlillloullv' is that of storage.
The practice of heaping the roots in
mounds , to bo left out during the winter -
tor , renders the task of feeding them to
stock very disagreeable , especially
when the ground isifrozon. This is now
overcome by storing thorn in bins , In a.

bo packed in dry earth in the bins.

required for an aero , according to the
mode of planting. If the cutting ol the
potato seed , the labor of destroying the
bcotlo and the lower koop'ng ' qualities
of the potato , compared with the carrot
or parsnip , he considered , the cost of
production should bo no more for
the carrots and parsnips than for
the former , while 11 much larger
yield and of more valuable

tops ) , may ho obtained. If such crops
are to bo grown , however , farmers

should bo well started before warm

time as possible for completing growth.
The soil should he rich , line , and the
crops thorough ly cultivated.

south wall plant eydonia jnpomca , with
its brilliant criimon and pink visitation
bloom in spring ; also , the pyrus pyru-
canthu , whose autumn scarlet of berries
is most attractive. Both those are ad
mirable wall shrubs for city gardens.
On the northern exposures plant poly
anthuses , myosotiscs , saxifrages , peri
winkles ( white , blue , plain-leaved and
variegated ) , the white garden lily of
ancient fame and such flowering bulbs
as crocuses and daffodils. There might
also ho columbines , irises and ferns of
many sorts. On the eastern and south

Washington Post : The oddest oflicc-
scelter who called at the white house
yesterday was a little girl , about twelve
years old , wcnrintr short dresses and
long yellow hair with bangs that fell
almost to her oycs , She has been at
the white house receptions several
times , but yesterday was the first time
that it transpired that she had business
with the president. Her mime is Eliza
beth Morroll , and she lives at a little
village near Suspension Bridge , New
York. She has frequently visited in
Washington and used often to go and
see Mrs. Cleveland , the introduction
being through her French teacher , who
not many years ago taught Miss Frances
Folsom the correct Parisian accent. It
occurred to Elizabeth that it
would bo an excellent thing for
her father to bo collector of the
port of Suspension Bridge , nnd it
seemed to her the most natural thing
in the world for the president to give
him the office. So yesterdar she went
up to ask him for it. Sue gave her card
1 to Doorkeeper Loofllcr , who declined to
take the responsibility of introducing
her , and turned her over to Private
Secretary Halford , and to him Miss
Elizabeth told her story. It was not
much different from that of the callers
in the other room. Her father had
worked hnrd for General Harrison in
the last campaign , and , in fact , had
nearly worn himself out , in his efforts
for tlio success of the republican party.
That is about what they all say. The
young lady's application is stored away
in Private Secretary Halfoad's memory ,
and will receive proper attention.
