the air was crisp and bracing. Just
such an R aster more as draws the heart,

no service at the Baptist church as the
pastor has not yet returned.
The Methodist church was tastefully
decorated about the pulpit. A garland
of evergreen gracefully festooned the
arch, and beautiful flowers of different
shades and colors showed to advantage
in front of the pulpit. While the dec- f
orations were not elaborate, they dis- a
played excellent taste. A large con- Y

The Easter services at the Lutheran
church were attended by one of the
largest congregations in the history of
the church. The auditorium and the
galleries were crowded and many were
turned away by the ushers for want of
room. The pastor, Rev. Dr. J. B. Fox,
delivered a brief address suitable to
the day, re-erving the Easter sermon I
for the evening service. The decora- i
tions were elaborate and very beauti- i
ful. The interior was festooned with
garlands and the walls around the
pulpit twined with ivy and bright-col
ored roses. "Christ Oui' Pag6over" was
the central motto, exquisitely made of 1
the beautiful wisteria, cont'asting ,
br'ightly with the deeper purple back
ground of the pulpit i'ecess. A lar'ge i

bouquet of beautiful tulips graced the ~

prlettier in its Easter garbh. The music,
both moring and evening, was render
ed with excellent effet. The holy a
commun ion was ad in isteredI at the
morning ser'vice to tIhe largest ninber'
of mnember's ever p)esent at a single
