For Assessor EUGENE ItERKELE There now exists a state of war be. tween this country and Germany. It was the wish of the people that we could avoid this conllict, but Germany by her reckless and ruthless disregard of every principle of right lias forced us into the break. Now that we are in the war th whole power of the nation, both in men and resources should be marshalled against this enemy of lib erty and freedom.

EASTER Comes On April 8th And Here's Some Facts Abont It. Easter Sunday falls in this year of I grace on April 8. being neither late norl eany. L.asi year it came on April '1, and next year it will fall on March 31. In 1913 Easter Sunday came upon tl earliest date for it in this centuiy, March 23. Last year's Easter .Sunday, on April 23, was as late as it will be before the year 2,000. when it again falls on that date. Easter is what is called a movable festival. It is always neld on the next Sunday after vernal full moon, with the exception that if the vernal full moon should fall on a Sundaj, then, to avoid all conformity with the Jewish I practice, haster is not kept till the fol-. lowing Sunday, The vernal full moon at present chaplain of lxlge So Si, mm which t(,KC5 . .i . on March 2! or on the next date after March 21. If the vernal full moon falls on March 21 and that day happens to he a bunday then Easter cannot be held till April -'.j, which is the latest date op which Easter can fall, the earliest being March 22 From the earliest ages various cus toms and superstitions have associated themselves with Easter. As at Christ mas, it used to be believed that nil water was turned into wine and that all cattle kept in their stalls knelt in adoration of the infant Savior, so it was held that at Easter the sun danced in honor of Christ's resurrection. ii l "Speed the Parting."

A notic- has appeared in our state pajiers recently, announcing the propos ed visit to Kentucky of auirragists rep resenting the Congressional Union or Woman's Purty. The Kentucky Equal Rights Association takes this opjiortun Ity to state to the public that the Con gressional Union or Woman's Party is in no way connected with the National American Woman Sullrage Association, of which the Kentucky Equal Rights Association is u branch. The National American Woman Suf frage Association does not endorse, and greatly deplores, militant methods, heckling officials, picketing the White House, or any method of promoting the cause of the enfranchisement of of women excepting LEGITIMATE ap peals to reason and justice. There is no organization of militant suirragists in this State. It Is nur with that there may never be one. It is our belief that militancy will never be en dorsed by out women and will never be necessary to securo justice from the men of Kentucky, Christine Ilradley South, President Kentucky Equal Rights As sociation.
