tiio wonderful series of services which take pi: ce
at the rettial scenes of the death and resurrection
of the Savior. No one who has attended the
services of holy week and Easter at the Church
of tlie Holy Sepulcher in Jerusalem has ever
failed to he deeply impressed by the services.
And yet hut comparatively few people know
that the unique services preparatory to and cul
minating in Piaster which take place in Jerusalem
are reproduced as faithfully as circumstances
will permit in one spot in our own land—at the
Franciscan monastery on the outskirts of Wash
The Franciscan order of friars has had charge
of the holy places of Palestine since early in the
thirteenth century. Sr. Francis of Assisi, the
founder of the order, was granted their custody
by the Mohammedans. T n Washington a body of
devout monks has created an establishment which
is a memorial of all the holy shrines of Palestine
and reproduces the services taking place there.
The Church of the Holy Sepulcher, named after
tlie famous basilica in Jerusalem, and its nttaehed
monastery of Franciscan friars are situated to
the northeast of Washington, three miles from the
United States treasury, regarded as the center of
the city. The holy brothers were wise in their
selection of their site, when some 15 years ago
they chose the glorious wooded eminence now
known as Mount St. Sepulcher, overlooking miles
upon miles of verdant Maryland on one side and
on the other the capital of the United States. It
's a gracious spot and a fitting place for the re
production of the most sacred places of earth.
Tn the great church, built upon Byzantine lines,
restrained by the rule of simplicity of the order.
In the form of the five-fold cross, which was the
coat-of-arms of the Latin kingdom of Jerusalem,
are assembled faithful reproductions of the holy
shrines of Palestine, each separate and distinct,
hut all combined in a beautiful and harmonious
The chief feature of the church, as of the whole
establishment, is the holy sepulcher, which is an
exact reproduction of the original tomb preserved
in Jerusalem as the holy of holies and sheltered
by the magnificent Church of Holy Sepulcher,
the mecca of all Christians. It was to preserve
the tomb of Christ that many of the crusaders
of old from various parts of the world laid dowD
their lives.
The holy sepulcher in the monastery church
here, as in Jerusalem, consists of two apartments.
The outer apartment Is called the Chapel of the
Angel, because the angel was found seated here
on the morning of the first Easter. And the inner
chamber, which is the tomb. The chapel of the
nngel Is entered by a low arched doorway, sur
mounted by a large relief panel representing
Christ rising from the tomb. A casket of stone
In the miter of the chamber contains a fragment
of stone front Jerusalem.
Through an archway so low that one must stoop
far to enter it is tlie sepulcher of Christ. It is a
replica of the bare, rock-hewn cell, the tomb of
Joseph of Arimatliea, in which Christ was laid
after his crucifixion. In the original sepulcher
a shift of marble lias been laid over the tomb to
cover It from desecrating hands. Here that slab
Is reproduced, and on its lies a figure of the
Christ, who. after the anointing of his body, lay
here in death from Good Friday until bis resur
rection Easter morn.
Above the tomb Is a facsimile of the silver re
lief panel of Raphael’s “Resurrection,” which
Cardinal Antonelll donated to the holy sepulcher.
In Jerusalem the soft lamps which dimly light the
sacred chamber are of gold, silver and precious
stones. Here the reproductions are of simpler
materials, but produce the same effect upon tlie
hallowed spot
It is at the holy sepulcher that the holy eu

Above the holy sepulcher and reached by two
flights of marble steps Is the altar of Thabor, rep
resenting tlie commonly known Mohnt Tabor,
where the transfiguration of Christ took place in
the presence of Moses and Elina.
To the left of the holy sepulcher, and the altar
of Thabor is tlie chapel of St. Francis. The
“Sweet Saint of Assisi” is here represented in
the figure above the altar as receiving the em
brace of our Lord, according to the conception
of Murillo. A relief panel on either side of the

The distance from this representation o f Mount
Calvary to the holy sepulcher, across the length
of the great church, is about the same as are the
originals from each other in Jerusalem, and the
height is the same us Mount Calvary.
Beneath the Church of the Holy Sepulcher Is a
series of underground chambers which are true
copies of several of the sacred spots in Palestine.
The Easter services at Mount St. Sepulcher ac
tually commence a week before, for the rites of
holy week are hut a preparation for the glorious
celebration of Easter. They are carried out with
full detail and liturgical splendor and after the
manner of those at Jerusalem, the seat of the
actual shrines of Christ, where the Franciscan
friars have been the custodians since 1223, when
the fervor and piety of St. Francis won this right
for himself and his followers. •
The first service of holy week takes place Palm
Sunday with the nine o’clock mass, when the
celebrant blesses and distributes the palms at the
central altar. After this the traditional proces
sion takes place, in representation of our Lord’s
triumphal entry Into Jerusalem, when the multi
tudes waved palm branches before him and shout
ed “Hosannah to the Highest!” This service is
similar to that now celebrated In Jerusalem at
the Church of the Holy Sepulcher.
After the procession round the monastery
church at Washington, high mass is celebrated
and the passion sung according to the gospel of
St. Matthew.
Late on Wednesday afternoon the matins of
Holy Thursday, commonly called Tenebrae, are
sung in the church, which Is but dimly lighted.
Holy Thursday, or Maundy Thursday, Is a day
of festival because it is the anniversary of the in
stitution of the Lord’s supper.
Good Friday at the Church of the Holy Sepul
cher is observed with rites of unique solemnity.
At the morning service of this day no one save
the celebrant receives the holy communion. No
mass is celebrated in any Catholic church on this
day. In black vestments, accompanied by his
ministers, the celebrant goes to the altar, which
is bare hut for the candlesticks and crucifix cov
ered with a purple cloth. The officiant and min
isters prostrate themselves before the altar dur
ing the singing of part of the Scriptures. Then
while kneeling a plain white linen cloth is spread
upon the bare altar, which Is now In darkness.
The passion, according to St. John’s gospel, Is
then sung by three deacons, as on Palm Sunday,
after which the crucifix on the main altar is un
veiled and brought down to the altar steps, where
clergy and people venerate it. During this cere
mony all the crucifixes in the church have been
After the veneration of the crucifix the friars
form in procession and proceed to the holy sep
ulcher, when the sacrament is brought back In
solemn state to the central altar. The officiant
then consumes the sacred species and the clergy
leave the altar in silence.
The Good Friday evening service at the Church
of the Holy Sepulcher is unique in this country,
and represents the burial of our Lord, following
closely that performed at Jerusalem. The church
is in comparative darkness and the scenes in this
dim light take on an added solemnity. Previous
to this service the figure of Christ has been taken
from Its year-long resting place in the holy sep
ulcher and is now reclining on a bier In front
of the representations of Mount Calvary. The
figure is incensed; prayers are said, and, follow
ing the first of a series of sermons in various
languages is preached from the spot.
Then the solemn procession is formed. The
dead Christ on the bier, partly covered by a pall,
is home by the monks. Preceding this, at the
head of the cortege, are carried representations
of the crown of thorns, of the three nails which
pierced hands and feet, of the spear which wound
ed the side and of the sponge filled with vinegar
which they gave him to drink.

is the blessing of the paschal candle at the nine

The Easter Sunday masses, following the cus
tom of those In Jerusalem, are said in the holy
sepulcher every half hour from 5:30 in the morn
ing. At nine o’clock a solemn high mass is said
at the central altar, when the gorgeous Easter
music is beautifully rendered by the monastery
choir before a congregation which crowds the
great edifice. A custom of several years’ standing

If Easter day be bright and sunny, such of the
grounds of the church and monastery as may be

after this song service. They wander through
the well-kept grounds and generally find their way
to the grotto of Lourdes, lying In a little valley to
the south of the monastery. This is a facsimile
reproduction of the famous shrine of the Pyre

tlie benefit of those pilgrims who cannot see the
famous grotto of miraculous healing in its native
home In the south of France.
It is only upon special occasions that one may

and courtyard of the monastery, the great, severe

The courtyard, with its vine-covered cistern in

Wet Goods Dealer Found That Bundle
He So Obligingly Kept for Cur
tomer Had Its Usee.
Aren’t the master workmen of the
wet goods establishments easy marks’
That is what the gentry who live by
their wits are asking each other. They
know that the proprietor of a wet
goods establishment loses bis mental
balance and is completely disarmed
when he is invited to have a drink. Re
cently two husky-looking individuals
entered a Forty-second street suds em
porium. One of the party carried an
enormous bundle, which he placed on
the top of the mahogany. They both
called for a drink.
“Well, it is hopeful that my wife
will stop her nagging about the cold
weather and being "cold when I carry
this home.” said the man who carried
the bundle.
At tlie end of the bar stood the pro
prietor of the wet goods e- tablishment.
He seemed euii'ga, so the two men in
vited him to have a drink, which was
accepted. One of them explained that
he had the finest pair of wool blankets
that was ever sheared from the backs
of sheep in the package.
“Feel for vonrself,” he said, as he
unfastened one end of jhe bundle.
The proprietor felt and acknowl
edged that they were the simon pure
wool article.
“I’m taking them home to my wife,”
said the owner. “She has been kicking
about being cold.”
Then they had another round of li
“Well, I must be on my way.” said
the man, as lie picked up the bundle.
“Why don’t you leave them here un
til you start for home?” interposed his
“Good idea.” he said. And turning
to the owner of the cafe lie asked if
he could leave the bundle.
“Sure,” said the proprietor, “but you
had better write your name on it to
avoid any mistake.”
Twelve o’clock came around and the
man hadn’t called for his bundle. “I
can see that fellow- getting more h—l
when he goes home tonight.” said the
proprietor as he turned the key in the
Tlie next day the owner of the cafe
was the first on the job. He took a
survey of the wet goods and then went
to the rear of the store, where the safe
was. Here was a surprise for him.
He found the door of his burglar-proof
safe neatly reposing on the pair of
downy blankets, which had been used
to muffle the sound of the explosion.—

Maritime Miscellany.
One of the minor and yet exceeding
lv important articles entering into tlie
construction of a wooden ship is tlie
“knee.” A ship knee is a right-angled
wooden brace used to give strength to
the framing and is fashioned from the
natural crook of a tree formed by a
heavy, shallow, horizontal root and a
section of the trunk. Knees when fin
ished are sometimes as much as six or
seven feet high and many of them are
four feet high. The tremendous impe
tus to wooden shipbuilding brought
about by the war has resulted in the
establishment of a sawmill at Port
land. Ore., designed exclusively for the
finishing of ship knees. The timber
preferred is second-growth Douglas
fir, found growing in shallow soil, so
that the roots turn off at right angles
to the trunk and thus give the proper
shape. A tract of timber that will pro
duce five to seven knees per acre is
considered a good location for a camp.
The standardized wooden ship requires
some two hundred knees of all sizes,
while another type of wooden ship, also
under construction, requires more than
one hundred and sixty knees. In addi
tion to the production of knees by the
special Sawmill at Portland, various
operators are also getting out knees by
the old-fashioned method of hand liew
ing in the woods. —National Lumber
Manufacturers’ Association.
Food—After the War.
Whatever other blessings peace may
bring it will not bring instant relief to
the masses who are now distressed by
food shortage and its natural conse
quences, high prices. There will be
as many mouths to feed when the arm
ies are demobilized as there are now.
It is true that the fare of the soldiers
in most European countries is more
liberal than that of the civil popula
tion. hut no statesman will take com
fort in the prospect of masses of dis
banded soldiers reduced to the level
of civil undernourishment. And be
sides, tlie civil populations that are
now enduring semistarvation uncom
plainingly, recognizing that no relief
can he expected while the energies of
their government are engrossed by
war, will be far less patient when
peace returns. More food, not less,
will be required in peace.—The New

Unsatisfactory Visit.

Broken Stove Lining.
If any one contemplates mending a
broken stove lining with a cement
made of salt and ashes mixed with wa
ter, don’t do it. The salt will rust the
stove, ruining it beyond repair. In
stead, get a quart or so of cement and
some sand from the street, and mix
with water. Fill all the holes and
cracks and your lining will he as good
as anew one and your stove not in
