Mack, rector of the Church of the Good Shepherd, a fort night ago, several members of that parish have decided to postpone wear ing their spring costumes until after Kaster. Many earnest Episcopalians feel that the "Queen of Feasts" is degenerating into a mere dress pa rade and day of merriment, and are anxious to avoid any observances of it that obscure the great truth which it teaches, the Resurrection of Jesus Christ. Moreover, the Easter com munion is to them the great event of the church year, and they do not wish to have any unnecessary distractions. New dresses and hats suggest thoughts not in keeping with the solemnity of the day. Church Xotices. Second Presbyterian church, Easter Sun day, March 23. 1913. William C. Meeker, Pastor.

Miss Maud Massey, who is employed In the North Topeka Hat Shop, Is go- To the Voters of the City of Topeka: I am making; a direct appeal to you for your support at Mondays pri maries. If elected to the office of commissioner of waterworks and street lighting; I shall consider every promise that I have made during this campaign (which have been printed) as a contract between myself and the voters of the City of Topeka and will employ every effort within my power to carry out these propositions during my term of office. I am candid in the belief that the City Water Depatment has no right in either law or equity to take from the water cohsumers a special deposit which aggregates a sum not less than $8,000, and I shall be in favor of returning the same to the water consumers. I firmly believe that the water rate can be ruduced to the consumer, absolutely upon an equitable and fair basis. And, if cheaper water can be secured, what does it mean for the city during the long dry months of the summer. To those who are unable to make an annual pilgrimage to Colo rado Springs or the seashore I believe it is possible to make home life in Topeka far more endurable by en-couraging sprinkling of trees of lawns and grass and parks. And cheap water will relief the as pect of "Topeka Beautiful" burned and seared by August suns. Cheaper water can be utilized in the encouragement of better gardens during the dry months and in this proposition alone lies the remedy, in part, for the high cost of living. I am in favor of spreading the ci ty lights to the remote and dark cor ners of the City and if elected to this office I shall use every endeavor to so light the public parks that women and children may visit them at all hours of the evening without being subjected to the possibility of affront by lax morality of those who invade these sacred precincts for purposes of an immoral character. My position on the general welfare of the city is well known. I shall endeavor to work in harmony with other city officials for the general good, but above all, I am for a clean town.
