TOMORROW HOLY SATURDAY
Order of the Services in the Catholic
Churches of the Coun
try. This is Good Friday. The day of
the passion has been held as a festival
by the church from the earliest times.
In England, the day is one of two,
Christmas being the other, on which
all business is suspended. In the
churches, which are generally well at
tended, the service is marked by an
unusual solemnity. In early days
Good Friday was celebrated in
England with the same relig
ious ceremonies as in many Cath
olic countries. A dressed figure of
Christ being mounted on a crucifix, two
priests bore it round the altar, with
doleful chants; then, laying it on the
ground with great tenderness, they fell
beside it, kissed its hands and feet
with piteous sighs and tears, the other
priests doing the like in succession.
Afterward came the people to worship
the assumedly dead Savior, each bring
ing some little gift, such as corn and
eggs. There was finally a most cere
monious burial of the image, along
with the "singing bread." amidst the
light of torches and the burning of in
cense, and with flowers strewn over
On Holy Snturtlny.
The services of Holy Saturday, as
they are conducted in Rome, are the
blessing of fire and the paschal candle.
For this purpose "new fire" is employ
ed. At the beginning of the mass a
light, from which the candles and char
coal for the incense is enkindled, is
struck from a flint in the sacristy,
where the chief sacristan privately
blesses the water, the fire and the five
grains of incense which are to be fixed
in the paschal candle. Formerly all
the fires in Rome were relighted on
this holy day from the holy fire, but
this custom is no longer kept up. Af
ter the service, the cardinal vicar pro
ceeds to the baptistry of St. Peter's;
there having blessed and exorcised the
water for baptism and dipped into the
paschal candle, concludes by sprink
ling some of the water on the people.

central fact of the Christian religion.
has always been regarded as the chief
festival of the Christian year, and has
been from the earliest times observed
with a stately and elaborate ceremon

Christians to salute each other on the
morning of this day by exclaiming.

or "And haih appeared unto Sinum."
This custom is still retained in the
Oerlvrd t'rwin Saxon Deity.
The common name for this festival
in the eat was the paschal feast, be
cause kept at the same time as the
paseha, or Jewish passover. and in
some measure succeeding to it. The
name Easter, as we are accustomed to
call this day. is supjosed to be deriv
ed from Eostre, the name of a Saxon
deity, whose feast was celebrated ev
ery year in the spring about the same
time as the Christian festival. It was
later called Oster, which is supposed
to mean rising.
There has never heen any difference
of opinion in the Christian church as
to why Easter is kept; there has been
a good deal of comment and discussion
as to when it ought to be kept.
It is one of the movable feasts that
is not fixed to one particular day like
Christmas, but moves backward and
forward according to the full moon
next after the vernal equinox falls
nearer or further from the equinox.
The rule given at the beginning of the
prayer book to find Easter is this:
"Easter day is always the first Sun
day after full moon which happens
upon or next after the 21st dav of
March; and if the full moon happens
upon a Sunday, then Easter day is the

MAXIMUM IS 14 YEARS
Attorneys For Young Man Give No
tice of Appeal Other News
Henry Vermeesch, convicted by a
jury of the crime of manslaughter,
this morning was sentenced to the re
formatory at Poutiac by Judge1 W. H.
Gest in the circuit court, it having
been shown that the defendant has not
yet attained his majority, having only
recently passed his 2h year.
The penalty for manslaughter is not
less than one nor more than 14 years.
If the whole term is inflicted, Ver
meesch win have to remain at Pon
tiac until he is 34 years of age, old
enough to be the father of many of
However, it is believed that the
young man, in view of the excellent
reputation he bore before his crime,
will be pardoned after he has served
a reasonable period beyond the mini
mum sentence of one year.
His attorneys. Searle & Marshall,
though, have not yet abandoned the
fight they are making to secure his
freedom, and this morning gave notice
of an appeal to the supreme court.
Court Shows Synipnthy.
Judge Gest, in passing sentence, evi
denced, as he has on so many occas
ions during his term on the bench, his
sympathy and interest in the young
men brought before him for punish
ment. He told Vermeesch that he
should not grow discouraged: that his
whole life was before him. The judge
said that he did not believe the boy
was mean at heart; he did not believe
that there was that cold premeditation
behind the shooting of O'Connor that
is ordinarily manifest in crimes of that
character. Yet the law was plain, and
it became his painful duty to see that
its spirit was carried out. The crime
had been committed, despite that evi
dence of a motive was lacking, and
the offender must pay the penalty.
Vermeesch was visibly impressed by
the friendly admonitions of the court.
Kmult of Saloon ltotv.
Vermeesch last November shot John
O'Connor, of Bloomington, in the sa
loon of I-eon Callawaert, in East Mo
line. Vermeesch was serving as bar
tender. O'Connor entered the saloon
with three companions. There was a
fight among the four. Vermeesch or
dered that they behave themselves or
leave the saloon. Three did so, but
O'Connor remained to have it out with
the bartender. A chair was broken
and a cuspidor thrown at the bartend
er by O'Connor. Vermeesch drew his
revolver, as he claimed, to defend him
self. O'Connor was shot twice. He
died the following day at the Moline
