Before Easter Sunday dawns it la

Increased Demand for Azaleas.
Along with tho sudden activity in
the (lower market, which compares fa
vorably this year wfth last, there Is a
greatly inurensod demand fo azaleas,
rrown in all shades and mixtures of
red, pink, and white; for flaming hy
drangeas and ihododendront. In tho
next the days as many of these
plants will bi disposed of lib aro or
dinarily sold in the course of a month.
Washington hotels feel the effect of the
close of tho Lenten season. It Is a fa
vorite plan with many parents to spend
the Easter season in Washington with
their children who are attending school
in tho East. Easter vacations permit
tho students to break away from class
rooms for ten days or two weeks, and
foregather with relatives in Washing
ton. From the far South and West
come tho parents while the students
swarm from Vassar, Wellesley, tho
Eastern universities, boarding schools,
and private schools for boys.
This Easter, like each preceding one,
brings out new millinery creations. The
milliners refuse to attempt a descrlp
tlo nof what is new. There is no start

Bay fashion demands each spring.
"You can depend on It that tho cro
atlons will be original, and that they
will be so different that oven tho un
practlced eye can tell thi season's hat
from that of last year. That is all In
tho business," explained one dealer
Tho President Instructed Col. Spencer
Cosby a week ago to open the Whate
House grounds Monday for the annual
egg rolling Adults with children will
be permitted to attend the time-honored,
ceremony, but adults without children
will be barred. In the afternoon a band
concert will be added to the program.
Preparations In Churches.
In every church preparations are be
ing made for special Easter services.
In, the older churches the day marks
tho close of a season of fasting and
repentance, while the day itself has
much significance to tho devotees of
the newer creeds.
Friday is the last day of school for
Washington school children until Mon
day, April IB. They will have a whole

taa.te of the long summer vacation.
An a part of Washington's Easter ob
servance lilies ate ordinarily sold on the
streets. Just as the flower vendor sells
violets, sweet peas and narcissus dur
ing the winter and early spring. So far
lilies have not appeared on the streets.
At the Center Market there are huge
stocks Indoors, but they have npt been
out among the street salesmen.
Eggs "grown" after April 1 are deem
ed fresh for Easter purposes and every
Incoming train bears a supply to meet
tho increased demand. Washington's
egg stock is larger this week than at
any other time during the year.
