All the churches observed Eas ter fittingly and solemn. The day was ideal and the congenial zeph yr that blew across the aerial world, was most pleasant and in spiring. This beautiful day, with all nature aglow, was made su perbly beautiful and pleasant by the gay, beautifully attired maid ens, lassies and mature ladies, who came forth like so many beautiful birds out of a cage. “Merry widows’’ were worn and they monopolized the side walks and the streets, when a crowd of merry widows were in a bunch, all else was hidden from view—however we all managed to’haar the preachers even if we could not see them, and enjoyed the best Easter in our city’s his tory. The programs rendered at all the churches were excellent. At St Paul the choir rendered most pvrjojlont music, homing the congregation in rapture, by thtiralgelic voices. This may become the finest choir in the state. At Union B and the Luth eran church, exceptionally good. Alderman Arrowsmith of the 6th ward will do his constituents a favor by putting in some arc lights on 18th street south of Cook to Clay or Kansas streets. Also the colored people should repair, mend their fences and put down side walks. 31IA1IAI A1 lilt/ tnilitUlt/3. Every Sunday. St. Paul, 622 E. Mason St., Rev. T. Price, pastor.
