Wash ington) and the whole Easter week. However, this, whole Interval may, in effect, be considered as Easter. From the standpoint of officialdom the first significance of Easter is the religious one. For, be It known, mos: of our officials that Is, our national officials are very conscientious church goers. Whether they are offi cials because they are church goers, or er they are church goers because they are Federal officials may be a mooted question, but the fact remains that the average public servant during his Incumbency of office In the city on the Potomac Is faithful in attend ance at divine worship. And even the excep tions who are "backsliders" at other seasons of the year strain a point to be "among those present" on the joyous Easter morn. The second significance of Easter in official dom is as a day of family reunions, second only to Christmas In the eagerness with which v It is anticipated. "The opportunity for such reunions arises from the fact that a large pro portion of the children of our public men at tend public or private schools elsewhere than In Washington, even though their parents may maintain a home at the capital. Sometimes It Is a matter of sentiment that makes an official desirous of having his children educated In his old home town, and In the case of the young men and young women there are the college magnets Vassar and Wellesley and the rest for the girls, and Yale, Harvard, Cor nell and others for the boys. It thus happens that there Is a small army of sons and daughters to come home to the. habitations of officialdom for the "Easter vaca tion," and usually they bring with them as many school chums as parents can arrange to entertain, for Washington at Easter Is proverbially one of the most fascinating places In America and offers no end of opportunities for good times for young people. During the Taft administration the White House has taken espe cial cognizance of this Easter home-coming cus tom, for the junior Tafts have been among those exiles who have made the Easter pilgrimage, bringing with them school friends. Accordingly Mrs. Taft has always made it a point to arrange a round of social festivities, Including an Easter week dance for not only the "house party" at the Presidential Mansion, but the whole body of Eas ter reunloners In officialdom. a tMrri Rltrniflcance that attaches to Easter In officialdom is Its function as the Inaugural of the NICE, BUT NOT IN HIS LINE Exhibition on "Mantles" Most Pleas urable, Only Young Man Had Other Business to Attend To. - "I've come to seo about the mantles, Miss." "O, yes, I'm so glad you have come so soon; will you step into the draw ing room?" The young man stepped; he was pleased with his pleasant reception. After awhile ma came in and said: "How do?" So sorry to trouble him, but would he mind if they" tried the mantles on? Her daughter's was a trifle too full, and her own a trifle too long, she thought. Perhaps he would be good enough to see. The young man said he would be only too delighted. The two elegant mantles in the lat est style which were lying across the back of tho sofa were then donned, and the young man said he thought they looked charming: Yes, perhaps a little alteration was required, but If they would excuse him he would be glad if they would let him get on with his work and show him the gas-burners that were requiring fresh mantles. Why! Wasn't he from Jiggins & Jigginses? 0, no! He was the young man that attended to the mantles from the gas company! Rehoboth Sunday Herald. 5- .

But it Is the President that the Easter throng wants to see and they block the sidewalks about the church until aftet his big motor car has whirled up to the curb and the President has disappeared into the church. After the service there Is somewhat of a repetition of the scene, but the crowd Is not so large, because it is etiquette for the President to be allowed to make his exit ere the rest of the congregation leave their seats and he Is well on his way to the White House ere most of sthe peo ple emerge from the church.

Here fair-beared Russians from Moscow herd with yel low Copts from the Nile valley and pale Rouman ians mingle on the hanks of Jordan with bushy headed Abyssinian blacks. From the moment the visitor lands at Jaffa, where the only convenient hotels are kept by Ger mans and situated In the German colony, he is made to realize the weight of German influence in Palestine. It dates, in fact, from the visit of the German emperor, for whom, lest he should fulfill an old prophecy, a special gate was built Into the Holy City. The tradition was that any ruling monarch who should enter Jerusalem by one of the ordinary gates on horseback would stay aa Its king. A month In the Holy Land, with Holy week in Jerusalem, offers no difficulty. On landing at Jaffa, wither he Is carried In a night from Alexan dria or Port Said, he may proceed by next morn ing's train to Jerusalem. It is not an attractive journey, but it -lasts only three or four hours and runs through the stony vale in which David slew Goliath, In the Golden City Itself, where the Church of the Holy Sepulchre is the center of at traction, everything lies within easy reach of the hotels; the street of David, with Mount Zion; the Garden of Gethsemane. the walling place of the Jews beside the walls and the Mosque of Omar, the last a majestic mosque, held of great sanctity throughout Islam, patterned with a splendor of tries are adherents of the Catholic faith. Officialdom does not change Its regular routine on Easter, and consequently has Easter dinner la "the evening Instead of at noon, as do so many folks In other American communities.

Evening church services on Easter at the cap ital are as well attended as are the corresponding services in other cities, but one sees compara tively few prominent officials at such evening serv ices. Whether it is that they feel that their devo tions of the morning should suffice, or that the late dinner hour 7:30 o'clock at the White House and In most fashionable official homes Interferes, It is difficult to say. Or, perhaps it may be that officialdom considers that it had best early to bed in preparation for the strenuous program of Easter Monday which is a not less busy day for the grown-ups of officialdom than for the thou sands of excited children who- roll eggs In the President's big back yard.

There are two horseback or carriage excursions to be made from Jerusalem, the one to Bethlehem, the other embracing the Jordan, Jericho and the Dead Sea. The first or these, which takes only an afternoon, lies along a well-laid road past the fields associated with the story of Ruth. The Church of the Nativity, which has a very .viorinr and Is entered by a low doorway that must often have saved It from the attack of fanatical Mohammedans, Is built over tne grouo m which Jesus was born, and at Eastertide it is at crowded as that of the Sepulchre, with the same curious and somewhat distressing conflicts be tween Greeks.
