TRUTH THAT EASTER TELLS.
you look into the face of human
ity on Easter day and listen to Its
accents and watch its movements
wherever the message of Easter
has been spoken you know that it is
joyful news, good tidings. The pealing
bells, the jubilant songs.- the churches
and the homes bright with the flowers
of spring, the festive garments, the
whole costume and utterance of Chris
tendom show Jthat the word has been
spoken as a word of cheer, a word of
hope, a summons to rejoicing. Is not
this in Itself a great achievement? To
fill the heart of the world with a great
hope and an unselfish joyis not that a
great good? That Jesus the Christ has
done all this for the world no man can
There is reason in this rejoicing. It
Is the truth that Easter tells that
makes the whole earth glad^What is
this truth? It is the truth that there is
life beyond the grave. To the perfect
man there is no death, and in every
man there is a spiritual principle over
which death has no power. This has
been the unquenchable hope of man
kind in all the ages, and the resurrec
tion of Christ gives to this hope
great confirmation.Dr. Washington'
Gtadden In Woman's Home Compan

I saw two women weeping by the tombV
Of one new buried In a fair green place
Bowered with shrubs. The eve retained
Of aught that day performed. But the
Of dying day was spread upon the sky
The moon was broad and bright above the
The distance sounded of a multitude
Music and shout and mingled revelry.
At length came gleaming through the
Helmet and casque, and a steel armed
Watched round the sepulcher in solemn
The night word passed, from min to man
And 1 could see t.lose women rise and go.
