Rev P A Simpkin Tells Im
port of Opening of Pas

The message of Palm Sunday was the
theme of the sermon of Phillips Con
gregational church yesterday morning
The Rev P A Simpkin in speaking of
its lessons said
Palm Sunday is notable for more
than the fact of its marking the open
Ing of Passion week in the life of Je
sus and the remembrance of the
church It has its value in the triumph
of the Christ its testimony to the eth
nic expectancy of the Redeemer The
significance of it is not found in the
semipolitical aspirations of Jewry that
were voiced In the welcome of Jesus
in the marvelous outpouring of the peo
ple and their paens of praise The ful
fillment of prophecy and the fervor of
the great manifestation that marked
His triumphal entry into the Jewish
1 3 u
capwt UUUl au nu uu uuanlng
The Christian world remembers with
gladness the triumph of Christ that for
a day filled Him with gladness and cast
a glow even into the shadows lying in
the week of agony The incident has
three lessons at least to speak to us
who profess to be His followers to
know His life
The mind of Christ that faced the
Eternal will in glad submission and
with quiet heart moved on to find the
Wills end in the uplifted cross and
the opened grave is the greatest ex
hibit of that far Palm Sunday That is
the lesson of the Easter The command
to make tho Fathers will lifes busi
ness comes out of the frenzied acclaim
of that day
It was a day of prophecy The road
from Bethany to ZIon did not end at
the temple The triumphant march of
Jesus that day was a prophecy whose
fulfillment has been unrolling in a
splendor which has been the ages glory
and wonder The peasants flinging
palms flowers and garments at thefeet
i of the Christ and singing the song of
praise are tiny figures at the other
end of the long long road Today the
triumph proceeds and the mind and
soul of Christian civilization flings its
greatest canvases and sculptures its
loftiest oratorios and stateliest archi
tecture Its places of pity and Its richest
messages its hopes and dreams at His
feet as he rides across the years to
loves final triumph In the day of
truths fulness Nothing is more mar
velous in all the diverse pictures gra
ven on the wheel of time than this the
picture of the Christ throned upon the
chair of peace arbiter of times dis
putes fountain of its hopes guarantor
of Its final attainments If any message
of life and gladness tremble on the lip
of man It Is the echo of His song and
whisper and the acclaim wrung from
the worlds great common heart Is for
Him who rides triumphantly coming In
the name of the Lord
One message of the Palmday wo

I Rev Francis Burgette Short Tells
Mothers to Teach Useful
Home Arts
The Rev Francis Burgette Short of
the First Methodist church in his apr
mon last night drew a practical illus
tration from the Biblical story of Dor
cas the beautiful woman of Joppa re
ferred to in Acts ix36 Now there
was at Joppa a certain disciple named
Tabitha which by interpretation Is
called Dorcas this woman was full of
good works and alms deeds which she
Dr Short said in part The city
of Joppa is immortal It is the sea
port for Jerusalem Here was landed
the cedar for Solomons temple which
Hiram had cut In the Lebanon forests
Here the fleeing prophet Jonah took
ship for Tarshlsh But best of all here
lived and wrought that beautiful wom
an Dorcas
There is nothing else quite so beau
tiful as a beautiful woman But mere
physical beauty is both external and
temporal That which is sometimes
called beauty Is merely the result of
certain rorm or color ootn 01 Which
may be bought Real beauty comes
from the heart that burns with high
and holy Impulses that struggles to
realize noble ideals that unselfishly
seeks to pour happiness Into the un
fortunate of earth Such was Dorcas
Real beauty is immortal because f
its source and its character It has
its birth in the soul and it receives its
light from the torch of Truth It goes
about doing good like Its Master It
cannot die because It Is too busy help
Ing others to live Why was Dorcas
beautiful Because she was full of
good works and kindly ministrations
for the needy She not only gave of
her substance she gave her time and
her labors With her own fingers she
made garments for the poor widows
and doubtless little coats for the or
phans Their concern entered her very
life The sympathy of her soul conse
crated the works of her fingers Rich
sentiment made her gifts the more
i valuable
Can you do something worth while
young woman Can you make a gar
ment Can you make a loaf of bread
Can you with your own fingers darn
a stocking knit a Jacket or some lace
Life Is losing much of ifs sweetness
because everything is being more and
more machine made Where did you
get your suit Bought it Where did
you get your hat Bought It Where
did you get your bread your cake
your meats At the grocery
Let me ask you in all candor would
it not be a good thing for mothers to
teach their daughters how to do some
things with their fingers
