The .board of supervisors on itiheir
trip of investigation mere found that
the charges against Road Overseer
Hammels were founded on a very
flimsy basis of fact, and decided that
he should not be removed. Mr. Ham
mels has done more work on the roads
during his term of office than all hi'.s
.predecessors put together, and at the
minimum of cost to the county. The
decision of the board meets with the
approval of nearly every property own
er here as far as I can ascertain.
The livestock association received
another car of hog wire fencing Satur
day. Glendale has become the dis

this article. The association received
a oar of lumber last week and another

ciation bids fair to create a revolution
dn the lumber trade of the valley.

Deep Significance of the Day When
Christ Arose from the
Today is Easter, second only in im
portance in the festivals of the Chris
tian churches to the day of the Sa
viour's nativity. It is the day of the
Resurreotiion, the day on which the
immortality of the. soul is the theme
of themes. The tale of holy week has
been told and the agony of the cross
is past; the Son of Man has appeared
unto his disciples and the promise has
been given that beyond the line of
human sight there iKes a land where
reward shall be given in full measure.
It ds a day of rejoicing therefore:
full of rejoicing that ithe victory of j
Christ over death may be repented in
these latter days by everyone who
treads in the Masier's footprints.
From the walls of every church are
strapped the emblems of mourning and
in itheir place appear the white of pur
ity, the flowers of life and joy and the
evergreens of immortality.
Lenten season is past. 'Nature, in
sympathy with flhe time, is clothing
herself in bright raiment and the song
of "He Is Risen" .joyfully rings in the
