Kaster Sunday ia El Pao for the
year of our Lord, eighteen, hundrad and
ninety-seven, was a red letter day in
church circles. It' was essentially a
musical day, also essential'y a ladies
day, and the doah women had every
thing their oa way. N B. They
generally do, but on Eater it is prac
tically tbeir own day; and with the
lady songbirds and th9 bran new hats
a bonnets so much in evidence, that
common ordinary article called man
was for the time b3ingf relegated to ob
lion. There will be no show for him
until the restoration of the customs of
the Charleses of Eagland and the
Louis of France; when he will
have free course ran and be glori'
lied. The nearest he can get to it at
present is in the lioe of knee breeches
and striped sack coats, and they don't
tro on Sunday. The glorious blue eyed
nlondes and the charming, lustrous
iyed brunettes with cheeks tinged with
rhododendron tints, were out in full
force, and these with the new Easter
costume1, made the various church
auditoriums veritable bowers of beau
ty.
The music was tne most pretentious
ever given in tnis city, ana interested
everybody, as may be imagined from
the following accounts. Then the
preachers were at their best, and their
sermons commemorative ot tne day
were scholarly efforts to attentively
listened to.
At the Catholic Church.
The church of the Immaculate Con
;eption on Myrtle avenue was crowded.
so that chairs bad to be brought id,
and as the services began at 10 a. m.,
not a few people attended church here
ere going elsewhere at a later hour
rne east ena 01 tne auditorium was
Drofusely decorated with lilies, roses,
yellow aud white chrysanthemums and
othes flowers. This display with the
burning candles and ornamentations of
the altar made an attractive s:ght.
As was announced, Iiosewie's mass
n h aott part 01 3iercante's mass were
unsr, and for an offertory Mrs. W. W.
Hose sang Luigi Luzzi's Ave Maria.
rhe music was very good. The Rose-
wig mass is rich in harmony, and the
bores in some of the closing strains
were inspiring. Witn the limited in
strumental resources at command, Mrs.
Berrien the organist did remarkably
well; and she handled the score in
pleading wav that whetted the,music-
1 appetite for the same as given bv a
large orchestra or grand organ. The
tire musical part of the service was
ery acceptable.
t ather Cahill preached tha sermon.
He related how Christ foretold his
eath and resurrection by prophecy.
This was so well known to his enemies
hat the first thing thev did after his
burial was to set a watch at his sepul-
hre and to affix the official seal to the
stone that was used m a door. It is
mportant we should understand the
facts and the evidence that brings con-
u tion to the heart of every man. The
paaker detailed at length the well
nown historical facts of Laster morn.
the earthquake, the coming of the
angels, the terror of the guards, and
heir night into the city. This scene
as the verification of Christ's claim
that he was able t j lay down his life
acd to take it up again. The
SDeaker also referred to the coming of
the women and the two apostles
to the sepulchre; then to the subse-
uent appearances of the savior to the
postles and the disciples. Lessons
ere to be drawn from tins of a spiri
tual resurrection, also a belief in the
ncontrovertible evidence of the resur
rection and the divinity of the Christ'an
faith. Let us have greater faith than
oubting Thomases, and let us believe
the resurrection of our Lord and
Savior Jesus Christ. He who believeth
not shall be condemned.
At Trinity Church.
The rostrum of and immediate vici-
ity of the altar were filled with lilies,
potted plants, and quite a variety of
tiowers. dhere were also attractive
lloral decorations on the orfan. The
musical part of the service was a
marked relief from the lack of diversity
that has obtained heretofore. Trinity
as long bejn in the thrones of a
threatened musical dissolution, due
perhaps to an orer appreciation of the
eed ot financial pruning to make both
nds meet in general church adminis
tration. But the music committee
ave evidently concluded that the nec
sities of l lie occasion demand an
xpenditure in the "organ loft," and
bis stp is in the line of a wise fore
ierht and realization of what exiedien-
cy calls for.
In addition to the regular hymns, the
hoir in the morning sang the anthem
by Sudds, "Christ is Risen," and there
as a tenor solo by Lawrence Jones en-
tilled ''Calvary." At night the choir
ang "Hear our I'rayer," an anthem
by Sudds. There was also a soprano solo
by Miss iNannie .Beall entitled "Not a
Sparrow Fallath," by Franz Art, and a
lo-ing anthem 'Protect us Tn rough
he Night." by Sudds. Charlie Kolr-
nr sang biss in the evening, as there
was no night service at St. Clement's.
or the very brief time this choir has
ueen together tliey did remarkably
well, tbe closing anthem of the even-
ng being given in a particularly pleas-
manner, ine closing' mornincr
hymn, Coronation, would have "gone
better-' had the congregation caught
onto the tempo which was more rapid
than it had been accustomed to. The
tendency of any congregation is to
rag, and if le' t to its own devices will
n time turn the shortest into the loiog-
st Kind ot a meter. Aiiss iSeali might
liod a cornet of service in forcing the
congregation up to tne standard tempo.
Rev. J. T. French preached from
the tsxt, "Blessed be the (ioi and
ather of our Lord Jesus Christ, which
according to his abundint mercy, hath
begotten us again uoto a lively tiope by
the resurrection of Jesus Christ from
the dead, to an inheritance in:orrupN
ible and undehled, and that fadeth not
away, reserved in heaven for you," I
Peter, 3 and 4. The speaker said in
part, Hope plays a wonderful part in
our life. What is tbe Christian's hope?
There is hopa for all; butt what is tbe
Vi. V
Christian's hope? It i a star of the
first magnitude in the c jnstellution of
salvation, it is the brightest star that
shines in the darkest night. Jesus
Christ is our hope: Jesus in us is t he
hope of glory. Jesus says I am the
resurrection! He thea is our hope ia
glory. What kind of a hope is the
hope of the resurrection.' lhere is a
mechanical hope, and agricultural
hops; there are different hoies; but
what hope has the Christian man of a
better life? His is a tangible hope.
The speaker detailel the fall of hope
at the crucifixion when hope was dead
ened and for th5 time banished. What
is your hope today? The Christ who
was crucified, hung iu agony, spoired
by the Roman soldier, the body of tha
dead Christ? What is your hope today?
No wonder Peter stood up and declared
we are begotten to a lively hope
tnrough Jhrist tne risen jord. .Jesus
preached to the people hops in hinr.
His life went out a victorious life, and
it came again victorious.
What is the medium of our hope? It
is not through a dead Christ, but
through his resurrecf on, through a
risen Lord. Why was there ever in
stituted a resurrection Because it
was incorporated in the plan of Cod
salvation. Where do you get the
promise of a resurrection? Peter tells
us in the text where it came from. The
world today, is too much given to con
sidering a dead Christ. The bible is
not a dead book, it is a book of eternal
life. Where do you get the resurrec
tion, for it is the bis's of your hopes
today? It is given us through the
mercies of Christ. The thought of the
abundant mercy of your God should
occasion the mo?t beautiful thoughts
in our hearts, aid enable us to coaae
off more than conquerors. The object
of the resurrection is that unto us a
lively "-hope -may be b rn to an in
heritance, a home ia heaven. This
This hope is through the conr'ng forth
of the Savior from the tomb. This
home beyond is for everyone who
loves our Lord.
At St. Clement's Church.
It was standing room only in the
Episcopal church where the musical
part of the service was of an 'unusual
high order, as was expected, and the
floral decorations witbin the chancel
and on the Eister hats of the ladies
were not:ceably lioe. The back of the
chancel was profusely decorate 1 witi
calla and Easter lillies, roses and other
tiowers, varied with banks of ferns and
potted greens. These with the beauti
ful stained glass windows as a back
ground made a lovely ensemble. The
adies who arranged the decorations
eserve a good long credit mark.
Chairs were placed in the aisles, but
hese were lnsufhaient to accomodate
the attendance. Tbe choir that is
the ladies, "looked just too lovely for
anything" in their bright new Easter
costumes and bright fresh faces, and
they took bold of the work with earn
estness and vigor. The same thing
was true of the entire choir, and the
addition of Capt. Auger, cf the Fifth
avalry, was a musical gain. The cay-
tain has a voice of sweet quality very
pleasant to listen to. Tbe musical
part of the service was something of a
stupendeous affair for this section of
the country, and considering that this
s the hrst attempt toward the intro
duction of the English cathedral
service in this citv. especially
the singing of the entire Psalter,
and the compara'ively few rehearsals
due to Profes ror Smith's necessary
absence from the city nearly all the
week, the choir did remarkably we! I.
There were occasional ragged edges, it
is true, and one case of forgetfulness in
the offertory sentences that came near
upsetting things. But then that mu?t
be overlooked in the general excellence
and the admiration of the congregation
at the high and most pleising standard
of music towards which St. Clement's
choir under the direction of so able a
man musician as Prof Smith is aim-
ng, was fully called for. The Te Deum
of Dykes was rendered with a spirit
and achievement in successful melody
that very greatly pleased all listen
ers, and was appreciated even so far olr
as the federal building where the pist
office clerks stood in the wagon porch
and "took it all in."
The sermon was by Rev. George M.
DuBois of Canyon City, Co o. His
text was "I am the resurrection and
the life;" John XI:25. The speaker
lid in part: . The gosp?l of our bless
ed Lord makes its strongest appeal to
us at those points wherein it satislies
the deepest longings of the soul for rest
and peace, (riven a world of loss aDd
pain, sin and suffering, poverty, loneli
ness and grief what do we !t I ask in
stinctively as a satisfactory recom
pense? Not the philosophy of him who
joores pain and forces the tears bar-k:
not the folly of him who would bury
the misery under a round of inake-ba-
leve pleasure, but the coming ot some
ntinite power from without great
enough and good enough ti Hood the
soul with peace, as the sunrisj rolls
back the night.
Can he complete us.J Can he be aH
this to you and to me? Can he 1)3
fatherhood, motherhood, love, res'-,
home, whore these aro now denied?
Can he turn bitter into sweet, want
nto wealth, loss into gain? Can he
rovide a Held somewhere for every
talent, for every good impulse that
now asks in vain to be set to work?
Can he out of this patch work of human
lives, broken, enslaved, victims of evil
habits, evil customs, wrong social con
ditions, make a redeemed race of men,
now, here? Can he bring- a kingdom
of God on earth? Oh. Ye! T It- is the
very resurrection and the life, and
they who will do his will may dwell in
Him and He in them, and tnis is rest,
poaie and life. And then beyond!
Words can not picture that. Then the
human plant which has grown l"re in
beauty, through the indwelling of
Jesus, will finally bloo n it all its
heavenly sweetness in the kingdom of
our father.
Oh! if wo could only realize, by some
effort of the imagination, ho.v much
Jesus by his resurrection has becorue a
part of our world today. Were we to
wake tomorrow morn'ng, face to face
with the grim iptelligeftce there ia no
l ill -
God, what would life and all of its pet
ty struggles be worth? No God! No
Jesus! No heaven! Our doar ones gone
iorever into the dust of the gravevard!
What would you and I do? Would food
tasta good any more.and water refresh.
op the sweetness of the violets please?
would not tne sunsnine mock us, and
tne lull glory oi tne Pascal morn seem
only the stare-of a cruel dead eye,and the
kiss of our little girl bring only pain?
It is most pathetic to see how the ln-
tidelity of the day still hopes for what
it has tried to explain away. Jesus
has come to be the warp and the woof
of human life, and you cn not teir
him out of it. Yonder on the great
Atlantic is a great steamship heading
lor her port. 1 he winds roar through
t ne rigging; tne sea is troubled; ana
the night closes dark. But up there
oa the b-idge is the captain, and every
now, and tnen, you will hear a cheery
cry from one of the watch, '"All's Well!"
So our brave old world is going home
through storm and night. But Jesus
lives and reigns, and th3 heart bears
its burden well, for it knows that "All
is Well."
Communion followed tha regular
morning servic
Knights of Templar Service.
The annual service of the El Paso
Commandarv, Knights Templar, No. 18,
was held yesterday afternoon in St.
Clement's church. Rector Martin,
nimselt a iinignt. preacned the ser
mon which was full of animation and
spiritual zeal. The Knights marched
in a ooay irom iviasomc nan in lull re
galia, and filled the entire body of the
church. There were a line looking
body of men, and the part they took in
the ritual was interesting and impres
sive, particularly where the Credo was
read, the Knights presenting swords
at tbe time The music was excellent,
and the Larnby anthem was repeated
from the morning service. Tha organ
ist, Prof. Smith, wore the regalia of
his Mason iu lolgj in England.
Rector Mtirtin said: Sir Knights. I
greet you a fellow Christians profes
sing the same fa'to, acknowledging
the same Lord, and holding firmly the
cardinal truths of Christ's holy reli
gion. I greet you as Christian soldiers,
men willing to draw your swords in
defense of truth as it is in Christ Jesus,
and it need in to shed your blood in
behalf of our Lord. I greet you on
this Easter day when we are assembled
to commemorate the resurrection. We
are here to testify to our belief that
Christ rose from the dead, and the im
mortality of "he soul. God has given
us light in the lamp of nature, tbe onlv
light that thousands of benighted pil
grims have had. But under it 3 rays
men have been brought to seethe
truth of the resurrection. There is no
such thing as dea',h, the light of na
ture tells us. All you can do is to
change forms; you cannot destroy in
the sense of annihilation. There is no
such thing as absolute death. Nature
reveals her truths beautifully, and
everything we see spsaks of the resur
rection. The oak grows from the acorn,
aud the greatest endings come from the
smallest beginnings. Thsre is within
you a light that Goi has pla?
td there, the light of reason,
the light of the inner con
science, the knowledge that though we
die we snail live again. It there is no
life after death, there is no God. It
is one of God's rules that nothing shall
be created in vain. We must wait,
hope, trust and believe: wait for the
fulliliment of God's providence in his
own time; trust in his mercy; hope in
his love, and believe iu his faithful
ness. God gives us the assurance that
man must live again. The old testa
ment has the promises that are ful
filled in tLfe new testament. Nonsensi
cal is the mission of the savior if life is
not immortal.
At i o'clock there was a well attend
ed and intertstiDg children's service.
This complete 1 the service of the day
at St. Clement's, and there was no night
service, as with four services the offi
ciating clergymen realized they had
done all that was required of them,
and the choir and organist felt so to.
At the Presbyterian Cl uitIi.
Tlrs church was packed with eager
listeners at both services, and at night
s-. ores of people were turnsd away, un
able to gain entrance. The morning
audience especially was one of the
dressiest audience s ever seen in an El
Paso church, and there were so many
tine Easter hats, that the male part of
the audience paled into utter insignifi
cance; a magnifying glass seemed nec
essary to locate them. The floral dec
orations elsewhere in the church were
fine, and consisted in calla and Easter
lilies, roses, ferns, anrl an elaborate
lloral exhibit that made the north wall
of tbe church look like a thing of
beauty aud a joy forever. The musi
cal part of the service, as was expect
ed, was of an exceptionally high order,
and those who worship in the service
of song as well as in tbe preaching
part of the service, found full scope for
tbe exercise of their devotional feel
ings. The Presbyterian church has always
been iiotsd for its music, and the fact
that Misses Shelton and Ullman have
been there so long and have sung so
long together has ever been an a-sur-ani'3
of that combination of the artistic
with the devotional that makes church
music so elTe.-tive. Tne musical pro
gram was well curried out yesterday,
and the way the. voices harmonized and
the expression both solo and in en
seiulib'. were not only pleasing but
intensely gratifying. Such high stand
ard of song is always an incentive and
source of encouragement to a preacher,
and R-!V. Mr. Moore has that true
sense of the beautiful iu devotional art
that enables him to appreciate this.
Mr. Moire preached his Ensier
sermon iu the morning from the text,
With wh it body do tliey come." I Cor.
XVS). The speaker s lid iu part, the
qu'ist ops: Am 1 going to live again
when this 1 fe is over? What are our
friends doing in t'n-- o'her
world ?
Nh-ill we kno.v them? are questions
which will alwajs ongige the in tensest
i nte rust of men. W'lm is it that does
not approach death with great curios
ity? As Charles Kingsley said when
lie was dying. And that other ques
tion. What kind of bodies shall we have
in the next life? Who is there that is
not interested in it? Silica many of us
hive more fri'M.iis yonder than here.
Materialists say that we differ not from
tbe clod under our feet. The soul dies
with the joay, When you destroy the
harp, you destroy the harmony. But
we all feel and know that the "I" in
us is different from the body. This is
my brain, but the brain is not "I."
The true relation of the soul to the
body is not of harmony to the harp
but that of the rower to the boat,
Even if the frail vessel is splintered by
the surges and the lightning, or rots
on the reef, the rower, the soul, is safe
Spiritualism swings to the other ex
treme and teaches that nothing but
spirit survives, and there is no bodily
resurreetien. But Jesus did rise with
a real body, and our bodies are to be
like his glorious body. Between these
unsatisfactory teachings comes the
teachings of Jesus and Paul which has
given joy and peace to the world. Ou
bodies shall rise. It is sown a natural
body of flesh and blood, where the
natural, animal passions predominate
It is raised a spiritual body, a body in
wbich the spirit, the highest part of
man rules. It is sown in weakness.
How we get sick and suffer, are
fatigued here. But this bodv is raised
in power when fatigue and pain and
disease shall not harm it.Our 9enses and
faculties will be wonderfully intensiti
ed in the other life, when flesh and
blood shall not clog the reason Of dim
the vision. Our bodies we bury here
shall rise again, changed but exchang
ed.
Tnis doctrine oi tne bodily resurrec
tion, brings whole arm loads of com
fort. From it follows future recogni
tion. Bless God we shall know our
friends yonder in tenderer and purer
love than we ever had here. What I
society is that other life. No sin
None want to sin. A common moral sen
timent is there where sonls shall move
in an atmosphere of rectitude and love
Living with the greaS masters of
thought and song, martyrs, warriors,
missionaries, Paul, Elijah, mother,
wife, friends what a gospel to preach
to men! there is no death to those
who love Christ. He who believeth
hath eternal life. Death cannot touch
a lite like that, it is ageless. Dvln
here today, 1 expect to take up my
work yonder the next morning. This
is the gospel that has kept the world
from dispair, made the bells of hope to
ring in the human heart. There is no
religion, no system of thought more
adapted to keep the heart sweet and
young. Ueautitul, nope giving, heart
soothing, gospel of the resurrection.
There were good audiences at the
Myrtle avenue Methodist and Christian
churches, the Methodist church being
crowded in the evening when children's
service was held. At the latter church
anthems were sung morning and even
ing with, a morning duo between Mrs.
Newell and Miss Maude Doane. At
the Christian church Miss Phelps sang
a solo in the morning, and Mr. Shedd
sang in the evening.
Moody and the Bible,
The famous Evangelist Moody, who
has been stirring up the sinners of Chi
cago, the wickedest of the modern
cities of the plain," is a remarkable
man, says the Mexican Herald. His
power consists in his tremendous appeal
to the moral instinct in man, to the
conscience which is man's monitor and
his certain pilot in life's voyage, if on
ly heeded. And Moody preaches the
pure gospel with its noble promises, its
sweet consolations, and its warning
against the consequences of sin. He
does not, like the fashionable preach
ers talk on Cuba, Armenia, Bryan, the
gold standard, and the latest topic of
the day. He preaches the old, whole
some doctrine that, as a man makes
himself, so will he shape his future lot.
Itis healthy, manly, invigorating doc
trine in these days of sophistry, of ag
noticism, und moral decadence. Napo
leon at St. Helena, hearing from a
flatterer that his name would echo down
the centuries, remarked that, when his
name and that of Alexander and
Caesar should serve merely to attract
the attention of the school boy busy
with his history lessons, Christ would
be a mighty power among all men, the
greatest force on earth! It is with
this sincere conviction that Moody
preaches. He knows the depths pro
found, and tbe shallows, too, of the
human heart, and his religion has no
sectarianism and no bigotry. He finds
the Catholics his brethren and com
mends their work, and, among all the
sects of Christendom he encounters
helpers and comrades. Moody is an
instance of what genuine belief enables
a man to do, and shows low respect is
accorded by men of the world to a true
Christian. Plain sinners detest a
milk-and-water Christian who is sneak
in gly ashamed of hia religion. As
Moody says, let men be always whole
hearted whatsoever they do.
In his annual report state Secretary
Wayte, cf the Y. M. C. A. says: Thirty-nine
associations report thirty-one
young men's meetings with a total
a.verage attendance each week of 1800,
an iucrease of 455 each week over lust
year. Twenty-three associations re
port thirty-three bible and training
classes each week, with a total aver
age attendance of 314, an increase of
forty-four each week over last year.
The number of professed conversions
is 351), and 120 have united with the
churches. This is a very large in
crease over the religious work of the
associations of the btate reported for
last year.
A Child's Health
depends almost wholly on the mother's,
not only before its birth but after
wards. A sick mother can't properly
care for her child's health. A sick
mother sometimes bears a healthy
child, but it isn't to be expected. May
be the baby will possess the appear
ance of health, but will lack stamina.
Maybe innate weakness will develop in
after years. Every woman should be
particularly caiefiil of her health dur
ing the period of gestation when the
child is really a part of herself. Dur
ing all this time, she fchould keep her
bjdy strong and pure and she should
take proper precautions against her
time of labor. Eor this purpose Dr.
Pierce's Favorite Prescription is pres
cribed. It has been used in thousands
oi cases, wmi me most graiiiying re
sults. It is a tonic to the whole body,
but particularly to the organs distinct
ly feminine. It so prepares the system
for childbirth, as to render it almost
painless. It cures all female troubles
aad promotes regularity.
