blossomed out In new togs yester
day—but with a difference. The
Easter revelation, made as usual
at the morning church hour, was
sobered by the war. The show
ing was less elaborate if not less
bright than in other years, show
ing that Thrift Stamps and Lib

Bright sunshine marked the
morning hours, and though n brisk
breeze was felt all days the weath

Fore-runner of Progress
A thousand miles without changing cars;
freight from coast to coast; fast express from
afar;—all are the outgrowth of a great princi
ple first applied by
when it brought under one system the early unconnected
telegraph lines. On this principle of "through connections''
all freight, express and sleeping car service is based today.
