SUNDAY IS MOTHERS' DAY.
Will Be Observed In Most Churches
--White Flower the Emblem.
By proclamation of Governor Hay
next Sunday ba« been Bet apart and will
be observed an "Mothers' Day." Special
services are requested to be held in the
churches, and all persons are urged to
wear a white fl jwer. The custom will,
undoubtedly, be genially observed. In
Colfax all who can are requested to cc
cure a white carnation, at all events a
white flower of some kind. In most, if
not all, of the churches appropriate
services will be held.
Mothers' Day should be the most
siered day of the year. What soul
possesses the love and devotion of a
mother! It is a fire that burns forever,
misfortune in any form only adding to
the spark of love. Looking back to
childhood's happy days is looking back
on a green oasis in the life of every man
and woman, no matter how far the dis
tance or dimmed by age the vision may
be. A writer, whose name is forgotten
and whose exact words cannot be re
called at this time, showed the steadfast
devotion of a mother's love by eaying
that no darkness was so dense that she
could not see the form divine of the one
she bore; there was no prison wall so
thick that she would not find her way to
comfort the wayward one confined
therein; there was no gallows so high
that she would not climb up and minis
ter to the soul as it took its departure
to realms far away. Let us observe
Mothers' Day, old and young, rich and
poor, all classes and conditions. It is a
day sacred to all humanity, belonging to
all alike. If may bring back tender
memories, but they will be memories of
love, of unselfish devotion that only
ended at the grave.
