Pa.) Text. "The Pre-eminent Christ * During holy week the supreme motive of life should be to five pre-eminence to the One who has made this week possible. Jesus Christ is worthy of the best man has to give and He deserves an exalted place In avery life. In God s mind, the Christ of resurrec tloir power was not only eminent, but pre-eminent, and this Is shown In the fact that God has highly ex alied him and given Him a name which Is above every other name. if this is God’s mind concerning this marvelous character, then there la no doubt but what He mint be pre-eminent In all things. In per sonal appearance He had no equal, in speech man never spake as He In moral* He was clean and pure, greater love hud no man than He. In devotion He excelled, in sym l»ath>, gentleness and tenderness He was absolutely preeminent. In largeness of heart. In faith, hope, charity, yea. in every noble virtue He occupied Uip moat prominent and pre-eminent place. In the Religious World THE WORLD'S SPRING OF HOPE. The International Sunday School Leeoon for April 23, la:. "The Risen Christ." —I. Cor. 15:1-28. By WILLIAM T. ELLIS. What an excitement the world's keeping of Master makes! New clothe*, new gardens, new house cleaning new decorations, new mu sic; streets and churches and holi day resorts thronged; a high tide of business; anew spirit In the very *lr —verily. Eastet is no lnconslder able factor in the world's modern life Anybody who pauses long enongh In the bustle of Master activity for any serious thought is likely to ask himself what is the real meaning of Master, the Christian meaning. Sup pose we decide that we shall not go through the great festival without definitely getting hold of the serious purport and significance of it all. l>rt us seek out the fullest and most authoritative statement of the Mas ter message that is accessible any where. That brings ns straight to the present Sunday school lesson, the noble fifteenth chapter of First Cor inthians. Paul's matchless summary of the facts and meaning of the Resurrection. Let me quote It. using one of the modern transla tions for its touch of freshness: A Famous Argument. "Rut let me recall to you, breth ren, the Good News which I brought you, which you accepted, and on which you are standing, through which also you are obtaining salva tlon. If you bear In mind the words In which I proclaimed it —unless, In deed, your faith has been unreal from the very first. “For 1 repeated to you the all lmportent fact which also I had been taught, that Christ died for our sins In accordance with the Scriptures; that He was burled; that He rose to life again on the third day In ac cordance with tha Scriptures, and was seen by Peter, and then by the Twelve. Afterwards He was seen by more than five hundred brethren nt once, most of whom are still alive, although some of them have now fallen asleep. Afterwards He was seen by James, and thaa by all the Apostles. And last of all, as to one of untimely birth, He appeared to me also. “For I am the leaat of the Apos tloa, and am not fit to bo called an Apostle—because- I persecuted the tu m hi m hi in m in tv Resmol \ heals babies’ \ \ skin troubles!

Rousseau, a great skeptic, wrote: "If the life and death of Socrates be those of a saint, the life and death of Jesus are those of a God." Napoleon Ronaparte wrote: "I know men, Jesus was more than man " When Gen. Grant was in Jerusa lem on his trip around the world, they offered him a great feaat. but he said: **No. this city where Jesus Church of God. Rut what I am I am by ihe grace of God. and His grace bestowed upon me did not prove ineffectual. But I labored more strenuously ihan all the rest — yet it was not I, but God's grace working with me. Hut whether it is I or they, this is the way we preaeh and the way that you came to believe. "But If Christ is preached as hav ing risen from the dead, how is it that some of you say that there is no such thing as a resurrection of the dead? If there is no such thing as a resurrection of the dead, then Christ Himself has not risen to life. And if Christ has not risen, it fol lows that what we preach Is a delu sion. and that your faith also is a delusion. Nay more, we are actual ly being discovered to be bearing false witness against God. because we have testified that God raises Christ to life, whom He did not raise. If in reality none of the dead are raised. For if none of the dead are raised lo life, then Christ has not risen, your faith is a vain thing you are still In your sins. It fol lows also that those who have fal len asleep in Christ have perished. If in this present life we have a hope resting on Christ, and nothing more, we are more to be pitied than all the rest of the world. •’But. in reality. Christ ha* risen from among the dead, being the first to do ao of those who are asleep. For neeinf that death came through man, through man also comes the resurrection of the dead. For Just as through Adam all die, so also through Christ all will be made alive again. But this will happen to eaeh in the right order —Christ < having been the first to rise, and afterwards Christ's people rising at His return. Later on, comes the End, when He is to surrender the Kingship to God. the Father, when He shall have overthrown all other government and all other authority and power. For He must continue to be King until God has put all His enemies under Hla feet (Pi. ▼lift. I; cx. 1). "The last enemy that ts to be overthrown Is Death; for He will have put all things in subjection nnder Hla feet. And when He ahall have declared that "All thing* are tn ■objection." It will be the mani fest exception of Him who has rp dneed them all to subjection to Him. But when the whole universe has been made subject to Him, then the Son Himself will also become subject to Him. who has made the universe subject to Him. In order that God may be all in all." Ward* and Their Meaning. Instead of making an extended comment upon the passage. I sug gest that the reader carefully per use again these great words, seek ing to comprehend their obvious meaning Let us be fair about It, regarding language only In Its ordi nary and accepted sense. This pas sage means what It says and not something that a subtle and specu lative mind may read Into It. The letter of which It Is a part was not written for halr-spltttlng theologians or fantastic metaphysicians, but for a group of plain people freshly out of heathendom, who had no doubt whatever of the resurrection of Christ Himself, but who had been troubled by doubts concerning the Immortality of men. So Paul wrote to set these doubts at rest. Os the Resurrection Itself, H has been often said that "It la the best attested fact In history."

If so. then no words In all literature may be trusted to mean w-hat they say. Some Tremendous Implications. The implications of the fact of the Resurrection as stated by Paul are tremendous. Spiritual life springs from Ihe Resurrection. Jesus Is not a mere teacher and ex ample, lo be ranked with Socrates, Plato, Aristotle and Philo: He is a source of new life within the breast of the believer. The supreme mys tery of Christianity is how this fommunlcated life makes the Christ and the Christian one. All the reality of the Resurrec tion is pledged by Paul as proof of the resurrection of the d«td. This is gospel for the graveside. Here shines the eternal hope; we die but we shall live again, even as Christ ever llveth. Take away the Resur rectlon and faith Is vain. Three of life’s profundities for every Christian are found in the story of the Resurrection. First, there is comfort—the only comfort adequate to life's deepest needs. Then theru is power, for a life be yond merely human capacity. And there is hope, which shines as a star into every grave, and guides all weary wanderers to the long home where lives and reigns the Risen lord.

DETROIT TIMES THE STAGE Harry Lauder, the famous Scotch comedian, who was unable to fulfill his engagement in Detroit In the Garrick theater recently, owing to lurnygitis, will give four afternoon and four evening performances, be ginning Monday afternoon, May 1. tn the Lyceum theater. Mr. expected to return to the Garrick, but the bookings in that theater for the only time that the Scotch come dian was able to come to Detroit could not be changed. Roy Walling, leading man of the stock company in the Lyceum, offered to withdraw his company from the stage of that theater for Mr. and the ar rangement was made. Mr. Lauder will leave Detroit. Thursday, April 4, nt midnight, and will sail for Eng land Saturday morning, May 8. It was by the merest chance that Jean Webster's delightful "Daddy long logs" letters found their way into dramatic form. Henry Miller, taking a train one day. found Mtsa Webster's story on a depot book stall. He read it on the train and at once saw its value for stage pur poses. He arranged with the author to dramatize It. and placed Ruth Cltatterton, who had been appearing with him in "The Rainbow," In the principal role. The reault was one of the greatest successes the Amer ican stage has known In years. Mr. MUIOT and Miss Chatterton in this chawing play have been delighting Detroit opart house audiencea this week. The "French Models." a new and lively burlesque company, will pre sent two burlettas and an olio of \audeville acts next week, in the Cadillac.

Harry’ Morrison and 100 Curley, and a chorus of 30 girls. Fanlta. dancer, will be an added fea ture. "If the gown Is fashionable, with hat to match, shoes and stockings iu the very latest style, woman may leave her conscience at home, for her clothes will uphold her through any difficulty or battle of life." says Katharine Hancock Galloway, the charming prinia donna of the oper etta, "Molly O." now In the Garrick tfcpnter. "A woman Is strongly In fluenced by her clothes. Dress her in shabby, out-of-date garments and she becomes shrinking and old-fash ioned, middle-aged and meek: take the same woman and dress her so that her frock is just a little smart er than those of other women and she will bloom. There’s no shield and buckler In the world so excel lent as good clothes. It’s folly to pretend that we rise above clothes. We rise to them, and we rise for them, and we mostly rise when we have them on nowadays, because they're not meant to sit on. but they make or mar us." Miss C.allo- Found-a W atch!

It slips into your pocket like a silver dollar and lies there snug and flat It keeps good time. It’s the kind of watch your friends check their time by—that always gets you to your train while it is still in the station. I’ve been looking for this watch for years. I know my customers want a thin, accurate, 7- jeweled, bridge-model watch like this; but until now the price of such a watch has been more than manyvof them cared to pay. That’s why this new one is such a find. The name is “Ingersoll • Reliance.” And the price is just about a third what you think it would be. It’s THREE DOLLARS 7 ife ' *»y ought lo Know, for in her role of Mollie O’Malley, In the operetta, ahe wears the daintiest and love liest of frocks. Emily Stevens In I.outs K.

New With two exceptions, the play will be presented locally with the original cast. Miss Stevens, a cousin of Mrs. Flake, is looked upon as one of the cleverest younger women of the stage. It Is generally conceded that her performance of Caroline Knottys, "the unchastened woman," is a wonderfully fine bit of work. Mr. Anspacher is said U> have drawn his types exceedingly well, and to have told the story with considerable force. The lines are bright and srlntilating with satiri cal reflections, and the characters are very human. Miss Stevens and the play have been one of the big successes of the present season in Now York. The company support ing Miss Stevens includes H. Reeves Smith. Hassard Short, l/tuis Benni son. Jennie Lamont, Isabel Rich ards. Marlon Ruckert and Emelie Polini.

I will tell of that in to tTiOrrow’s Times. i p v Character A MAN’S capacities are determined by several factors, chief among which is the fiber of the stuff he is made of. Like all of Nature’s most potent forces this is invisible, and being so, it secures its expression in effects and results. Competency, energy and hon esty—these qualities constitute greater worth. And their development creates character. | v Motor cars, too, have character. It is injected and molded by the hand of man; its presence is conspicuous when put to the test. Maxwell Motor Cars, for example, gain character and individuality by reason of experience, care and skill with which they are made. Every operation must strengthen the final result and thus the ability to give abundant? and satisfying service is correspondingly increased. As we specialize in the manufacture of light weight, standardized auto mobiles, we can and do concentrate our entire attention on those details that make for better motor car character. vl One Chassis, Five Body Styles Two-Passenger Roadster $635 Five-Passenger Touring Car 655 Touring Car (with All Weather Top) 710 Two-Passenger Cabriolet 865 Six-Passenger Town Car 915 Full equipment, Including Electric-Starter and Lights.
