SUNDAY, APRIL 16. 1911.
Typical of the spirit of Easter, tale
clouds that all the week hung low and
dark have lifted and out of the high
blue sky there shines the glorious sun.
Eirth, which was unresponsive in the
sullen llght of the gray mists of days
ago, smilen back at the sunshine this
morning and our hearts leap high In
the enjoyment of the revival of spring
life. We revel in Nature's resurrec
tion. Now we see the silver lining of
the cloud and we wonder why we ever
la.t talth In Its existence. The grow
ta grass, the blossoming flower, the
Ilnging bird, the laughing child-each
Is tilled with the inspiration of the
]Daster season and each responds as
God has given It the power to do. In
the eostasy of the happiness (which the
sunshine brings, we forget our des
pondency and we forget the clouds
Whlch brought It. O, we of little faith;
we shall also forget the beauty of the,
silver lining and we shall lose almost
the recollection of its existence when
again the cloud lowers-we shall unless
We hold within our hearts the abiding
belief in tile spirit of Laster, the spirit
so splendidly exemplified In the glorl
ous sunshine of this morning and tilhe
resurrection which It typlfies.
EASTER'S NOTE-Hope Is the tlosn
lnalit note of this season, ,hope
strengthened and made greater by tilhe
falth which this festival teaches. lHope
Is ours as the gift of tile first Easter,
hope not only for better thngs in this
life and upon this earth but, better and
broader than that, hope for the life be
yond. And, even as we hope0' fur liese
better things, here and hereafter, our
faith teaches us that our expectations
will be realized and we take new cour
age. We see tile clouds vanllish and we
feel the warmth of the sunshnlle; we
see the earth shake off tile clutch of
Winter and spring Ilto new life; we
see tile annual na.akening of nllture
and-what? Do we regard It quite as a
matter of course? Do we se llnothing
Itn It but what tlhe scientist tell us of
the law of reproductiolln and Iren'll\tl
No, we see Inore thun that. Htoffetrs
we may be and Indifferent we mally be;
but In our hearts there Is olllethingll
which tells us that there Is morl'e in
the springtime miracle thanll Just hl
chance has brought. .In tile hart of
each of us there Is the Inherent faith
Whlh tells us that the hand of God is
there and bids us note these things as
parables of the greater resurrection.
And that same faith blds us hope that
this Is for us; It urges us to strive alnd
to endure.
HOPE 18 NEW-Easter is disthic
tively a day apart. It has no duplicate
In all the ages. The muessage which it
brought is ours alone, as distinguishinlg
us from tile inert1 of tlnes past anrd of
races forgotten. The lesson *whlolh It
taught Is ours alone, as distinguishing
our wonderful incentive to better liv
lgll from the hopeless life of ages
gone. Until the Easter lesson was
taught ,man had lived without ho0pe.
The barrier between tile mortal and
lmnnqrtallty had never been beaten
down. Man.. mliht enljoy the factll
ties which had been bestowed upon
biln; he nlight win glory and fame
With the talents which had beenl
given him; he might find happliness
In the love of the children that had
been sent to him; he might feel the
thrill of power following the triumph
of hir valor; he might wield at scep
tar over thousands and tens of thou
lgelds--e might be but a little less
than the gods, but at the end of It all
there was nothing but tilhe grave. lie
s',allw not the hopu Iwhicl Iaster
eihut jt to us for our priceless pos
)ssiou.. The relglion which he knew

' Al. so ail lived untIl
C'hrl'et came and delivered the tes*
sage of ltCater. And now we live In a
new life with a hope that was un
known, a hopIle that ,was vaguely felt
but never rellised until Easter came
and brought pleace.
DOUBT DISPELLED-The b1,lifr in
Immortality is Illlheret In mlankind.
'For centultries, I1 many lanlds, paganl
plhilosophe'rs had repeauled the fiues
tion "Is this all?" Vaguely they hy hd
felt ine their hearts theat deatlh weas
not all but their gods hiad no anPswer
for their anxious ple'ading for Ilroader
light. From Pe'rsia, fronim ,gylrt, froll
llahylon and from Athenis thee Intel
lectuals had snIgt up the quelllsthln, "If
a man die, shall he live again?" And
thle fire, the sun and graven inmglges
had answered not; nor had theg reply
cong' from Olylmpus. Yet the Atlieni
anl were not nltisfied anld when Paul
ealie to to their city he foeund an altar
dedicated "to the unlknlown god.'
Blilndly and painfully had tile age
groped for the truth, pursuinlg their
quleest uponH Intellectual lines, when the
knowledge had to omen tllrloughll the
soul. Even to the Jews did Gdtl deny
th nossession of the great truth until
their th had beenl developeltd, 1. 1i
the germn of the hope lay in eaech
lbreast and inllkllllnd wakiened to the
kngowllelge onl thalt Hullntllly illrlllninl
whenli a flaithflll ,womanli went to ith,
tminl of IlliI who was slain upeioli tice
cross and received the message w 'ichl'l
tllrilled her swoul and whic'h lihas
brought lastlnlg joy to all nlulllltnd,
"lie In rnot hIere.: lIe has riseni."
HOPE ETERNAL-And so, ('gcel
hope, hope of better things li this lit,
alld In the life to coilec, hope bornl of
faith that these thinegs will be given
unto us. And wllth this hope nille this
faitlh there carne a new ligllht Into the,
life of mgankind. Stteadily the world
lees grown better: steadily our knowl
edge has broadened; steadily thil hope.
has driven out from the heart of lall
those baser things whiclh rwvere there.
Under the influence of the Easter
thought, iihckch Is the cornerstone of
thle Christian belief, the natloins of
the earth are drawing nearer to the
universal brotherhood which colies
from the acknowledgement of The
Pa.ther oef us all. rSometlil our Iollhpe
Ilmaly grow dim anlld. semetitgws our
faitleh may fehlter, but they uare nlever
entirely conquered anld they rise igall,0
shaeeieing Ius for oulr weaklless and bid
dling us take new culrage el to Ibe
of gi.ed chlleer. And, just to tilt. ix
tient that this radiant hope illuminesilg
our lives, we grow broader in our
conlceptions and stronger In our llr1ief.
In the light of this hope ,we look hie
yoeid tle shiorttcominlgs of our broth
ers anld see the good that is in theeem.
In the effulgelce of this raey lee 'see
the, latleh of duty and in the ceoura;gel
of thim faith 1wv' follow that way. (Great
e li the effort, solletillies, whicieh is re.
eqglrtegd, but greater, far grealte'r, is lthe
n reward which collles to those \llWho

HOPE RENEWED-Whe'rever the

it Is true that the movement for bet.

turn; It Is preached vigoroutly and It
Is practiced, too; do not lose sight of '
the latter fact. The movement for di

all these are signs df the deterrniIna

corruption from their civic matters by
taking their politics out of the hands
