UT jifislcr Was Observed By Great, . Throng of People in Churches 1 ? and on the .Streets. HAPPY CROWDS IN PARKS Spring's Reviving Touch Sends l. Thousands to Leafy Suburban Lanes?Church Services. : Easier was observed generally In all the churches "f the city yesterday, with services nnd music npproprlnto lo the day of the Lord's resurrection, special musical programmes bail been arranged and prepared In nil crises, and the con- ? grpgatlnns were trented to some of tho finest classics in religious composition. Though there bud been threatening ?Ignis I bo night heforo, the day dawned flue and clear, and In the beautiful, warm spring weather all of church-going Hieb, mond turned out to tho varions servies of tho different denominations, the churches In every Instance being crowded to the utmost. With all thought turned townrd the great resurrection of nearly two tbom; arid years ago, and with an attitude of mind framed for the memorial of thai great occasion, the streets were crowd-id at an early hour, with people thronging toward the church portals. After the services ninny people walked tip and down the streets, enjoying tn the full the hrlgbtnesR und the gladness Of the spring, heralded on nil sides by freshly-opening buds nnd trees putting forth their early signs of leaf. ThO parks were thronged with people of nil ages, from the gray-haired sires and dames to the wee children, to whom the spring was but a sign of a greater joy yet to come. The gladness was gcneril, even In the poorer quarters, where the passing of the (lull terrors of winter had given place to the anticipation of the delights and freedom from penurious care of spring and summer. Many Bright Faces. Nor was It rfbserved uloiio In the smarter attire with which Easter Is al? ways welcomed?this general air of pleas? ure and satisfaction with life?but even more In the expressions upon every beam? ing face: for the mind nnd heart speak With the outward signs of fnslal expres? sion. Beneath such an alluring sky., and such a gently beaming sun It was. not at all wonderful that happiness should take the stead of dull core and that people should smile nnd nod with that good-natured camaraderie which kinship in joy and sympathy only can render to the children of earth. It was a day of sunshine, In which everybody had a share, poor nnd rich alike; and the nat? ural bond of sympathy and human kin? ship held double sway under .conditions so bright and cheerful. finch tin afternoon could not be spent indoors, and then, too, dkl the people take other nnd more prolonged strolls-:, tending towards the parks in every direc? tion, or hieing themselves lo the green sword of the country side, where they ?would bo fur away from the "maddening crowd" nnd in n closer, sweeter commun? ion with nature, find that restful ease which only ?rrass, budding flowers and leafy trees can bring. Others took drives, ami besides the handsome carriages of the more well-tn-do. many an humillo gig found the road to some ?pilot resort, the occupants no doubt enjoying them? selves with a pleasure fully equal to, If less luxurious than, that of those who are generally deemed the more fortunate. And later In the evening many a couple still strolled llngerlngly home, ns though loth tn unit the early stars, with their suggcstlveness of moonlit linimtR ami lanes. But In the main they reached home, nnd there prepared themselves for the night services. Again nt night the Church-goers turned out In full force, nnd all the sanctuaries were filled with rejoicing worshippers, come to bear the -psalmixly of the resurrection and tin life without end It promises for all ninn kind.
