Artistic Dressers Bestrew TheirCapes With FLowers. M m, t New Tbrk, April 1-1. When tlio EaEter bells rang and folks-moved churchward last Sunday, the mufflings of tbe cober minded woman partook of the usual calm simpffcify, modified", of course, to newly n.odisJi Iincs;fcuUtha-lriwho loves fash lon for fashionVsweot sake was a gayer creature.

The new fad for excessive floral decora tion oru-ns the way for further sotimious ncss.nad a few of the new model neck and shoulder fixings have theirTife-like flowers so deftly scented that it seems hard to be lieve lbeyjarcnot the, real thing.

A neck fixing here illustrated is a rrerc trellfs, on wlfith to' bang a vine of morning glories. ,.,rt The lace used is Imitation point applique in a cream while and is In the shape of a vast scarf, much bunched and looped. The ' bunching encircles tho throat in a monster ruche, whero nestle the morning glories, which are of satin, in tints, pale and deep petunia. Loops of petunia satin ribbon, very narrow and of a rich stiff grade, are shrouded iu front by the lace caught up in billows; pointed scarf ends hang below the waist.

AX APRIL CAPE. An adorable little importation lately seeu was a single circle cape of leaf green satin under whito guipure lace. The lace was appliqued on to imitate a shorter cape, leaving an inch wide border all round of the plain satin. At the throat a boa effect iu white thiffon was made be coming and spring-like with close clusters ot yellow t-atin crocups, ami there were also short Jabot ends of the chiffon hold ing two bunches of the crocuses. In length the capo fell only four inches overt ho shoulders, and it washned through out with crocus-yellow silk. Another enchanting wrap that fhe same wicked dressmaker would not allow to be illustrated, was or black chautilly lace, with trimmings of lizard green ribbon and scartetsatui popples. The shay-? was a bodice effect, with a blouse front of not and a narrow back that was drawn down to the waist in a slender V that fmiahed under the belt In a short flirting taa of cliantilly, which, in a seven-inch width and closely knife pleated, fell over the shoulders in a series of capes. A spaco of seven mche3 came between the edges of the capes in front, and this, from throat to waist, was filled in by a broad band of the lizard satin rib bon, which was spangled and exquisitely shaded. A thick rucho of tho chantilly with bunches of tho scarlet poppies finished the throat, and there were also two bunches ot the popples at each Bide of the waist in front. However, all the stunning cape3 are not "fieurid" as the French put it. Posies abound, but so also do unflowered capos, and a delightful Illustration of theso last may be seen in the triple cape design here shown in back view. The materials of this aro pale mauve cloth, biscuit-tinted guipure and dahlia colored velvet. A theater cape, also il lustrated, is of golden brown velvet, with a throat ruche of deep yellow point ap plique and knots of shaded velvet wall flowers. THE NEW COAT. When it comes to now coats all tho world of femininity has reason to rejoice.

Cloth in pale tans and browns is a favorite material for theso coats, cyid not uncommonly the seaqis are trapped over with narrow bands of "the same. Ono very dashing little Jacket after this model was of plain black broadcloth with aq orange silk lining. It was double-breast, ed, with narrow mannish revere, and lnj cooky little affair was lo bo worn with a black and white check ,kirrf "which, ac cording J,o authorities, Fsjlhe la6t agony in combinations. r As to imported modelicontS'there, is no set "shape ot course.

Itev. Dr. ltojjcr Tllntrts Hjs Sermon Uy StiTcopticon Vlewa, . A unique and impressive Easter service was that last night at the Church of Our Father. It was condncted by the pastor, Dr. A. G. Rogers, assisted by Prof. Murray, and consisted of a scries of very fine Etere cptical views illustrating events connected with the resurrection. Dr. Rogers delivered a lecture of comment. The services were interspersed with con gregational smgicgot time-honored hymns which were thrown upon" the canvass in letters of light. "Among tliese were "Shall we, gather at the .rjver," the Portuguese Hymn and Corouation. Tho church, crowded in auditorium and gallery, was darkened for the occasion and D r. Rogers made a btriking figure as hestood in tho light and delivered the truth illus trated by the pictures. Altogether it was probably as dramatic a presentation of a scriptural topic as was ever seen in Wash ington. The views were or heroic proportions, and in nearly every instance well done, in some very finely. They bogan with the crucifixion, and ran through the se ries to the resurrection and ascension. At the close was a series ot five repre- ,scjUipg,..the coronation, acdthey were presented as the hymn was sung. ilia Inst.wjisa nobUs figurcpf ChrlstliiraarbJCit Dr. Rogers, in his comments upon tbe angel at he &epn!clier, said: 'Fear not'' 13 the watchword of modern Christianity. Ho could not understand wJitc men bad got the gospel ot fear. It has given place entirely to the gojH'l of love. Tin resurrection or Christ is a prime factor in this new gospel. It is one point upon which all churches tliatcnU themselves Christian unite. Some otie has described the n-surrvction as a vision ot hysterical women, and others insist that He ap peared after death only in the spirit, but the truth is that He. the rken Savior, was eeen on eleven' diffCrerit'oocacions, and at one time by over 500 persons... .All these could hardly be liystericar women. ' "He paid" a high tribute to women as the bearer ot the m'-ssage of the brotherhood .Qf(ma:i and the.

The Rev. George F. Dudley ,the rector, has been indefatigable in his efforts to have it ready for occupancy forthisoccasion , and it was only through his vigorous endeavor that Ais result was accomplished. Trie new organ wasin place, but the pews and some of the chancel furniture had not arrived, so that partsof the furniture of the chapel were set up temporarily in the church. Only a part of the main church has been completed, the tower aud front beiug too much of an undertaking to have ready at this time. Theedifieeisconstructedofgrayrough faced stone, and is in the Gothio style of architecture. The transept has not been carried out (Ho the full building line projected jn the plans, and a temiramry front of brick has been erected which will be replaced by the stone front and tower as soon aspracticable, and the church proper extended sixty feet beyond t he presentline. The interior is to be finished iu polished antique oak, and the altar and roredosnre to beof thesamematerialrichlyornamented In brass. The church when completed will cost in the neighborhood ot $100,000. These rvieesyesterday morning were rather dedicatory in their character, the rector giving in his sermon a review of the work that had been crowned with so successful a result. A full surplieed choir rendered the musical bervice. The church was beautifully decorated, the altar and the space back of the chancel rail being profusely covered with banks of Easter lilies and smilax. RELIGION OP PACTS. Itov. Dr. Stnkeiy Proaohes nn Interesting Sermon ou tho Resurrection Doctrine. Notwithstanding the threatening weather, I a large congregation attended the services at the First Baptist Church, on Sixteenth street, last evening. Tho sermon was delivered by the pastor, Rev. Dr. Stakely, on the "Resurrection of Jesus," his text being taken from Corinthians, xr:20, ftBut now is Christ risen from the dead and become tho first fruits of them that slept." "Christianity, after all, is a religion of facts," began Mr. Stakely; "there is nothing, perhaps, more interesting or striking than the resurrection of Jesus. If Jesus Christ did not riso from the dead, as according to his own utterances, wo must change our views and conceptions of him. If he did notrlse from thedead on the third day, he was not what he claimed to be; he was not the son of God, ho was a deceiver. "There are monumental proofs of thq resurrection of Jesus. Ono is the empty tomb. It is useless for people to tell us that theso facts are not historical I would rather believo tho word of God than tho word of man. God had. indorsed the ministry of the SaviourJ He, himself, hath Baid that the resurrection would be tho convincing sign. ' Jesus waa the authorized messenger. Itev. dorian. Lambkin's1 Sermon. The Salem Baptist Church, Champlain avenue northwest, was most beautifully decorated yesterday wftb'tt largo variety of flowers and evergreensiTvhich, "with tho songs ot the birds in different parts of the church, added much to the pleasure 6t the lafgo congregation that assembled to hear tho pastor, Kev, S. Geriatf Lambkin's, discourse, oq the resurreotldh ot Christ from the dead. Sis text was taken from tftp E8th chapter St. Matt., 'and 6th fsiS9 1 'He is not hcrejHe is risen as He eald" In All Churches Swelled Anthems to Christ, the Lord. ALTARS WERE FLOWER-DECKED Nearly All the Sanctuaries Were Crowded With Worshipers Brightest Sunshino, Balmy Breezes, and Bluest of Skiea Made . It an Ideal Eeaurroctiou Day An Atmos phere laden With the Odor of Blossoms. All Washington joined yesterday in the grand choral anthem which, under various forms, was sung iu joyous tones In all Uie city's temples in honor of the Redeemer triumphautoverthegrave. It was a lovely Easter morning itself an incentive to the feelings and emotions of prayer and devotion. The morning was exquisite enough in its suggestions for a poet to conjure with, bright, unclouded, the aif just moist enough to give one the seEso oMiquId sunshine, aud from all around the perfumo of early blossoms and the fresh odor of the ambitious buds and expanding leaves. A word as to these ambitious buds. They have accelerated their pace much bince the, chilling reception given them by Palm Sunday, and are now diBtinct in the warm sheen of their green and grey. It is no longer a figure of speech to say thutthe buds arc coming. They are here, on the elms, on the maples, and the hair of the willow is already beginningto sweep the ground. The most picturesque ot all the sights abroad on the streets, in hedgerows or in plots, is the glorious golden citfzus, whose jellow massc'3 attract the passer-by. And again in the parks these aro seen with com panion pictures of pure white spira in massive form. SHRINES DECKED WITH FLOWERS. But tho loving hands and hearts of the city laid gardens and conservatories unckr contribution to do honor to the day the Lord made. On Saturday the ap proaches to all the churches were marked with flower-bearera to the shrines within; and the result of this work was beautifully manifested in the gorgeous ness and splendor of the floral tributes with which ninny of the altnra, chancels, and other parts of the churches were decorated. The chancels of the larger churches were symphonic poema of perfume, light, and color, each a little garden from which the fragrance went up as a part of the incense of prayer to the risen Christ whose legends were everywhere Inscribed on the walls. As usual, It was a day of religious fervor and enthusiasm. Tory fewvpeople stayed at home, eo tliat before and after the morning; services there were great throngs of people on the streets, all bent where thesweet toned belts invited them to the feasts of flowers, mtiElc and prayer. , Humanity, like the other beautiful part of nature, the treesand shrubs, was nutinits vernal-raiment, which well became the proprieties of balmy air, invigorating sun- ahlne anU "fhe bluest ot April skies extended Iikea IwDedictlonoverthemovingniultitudes The frequency or yellow, nmk and blue, marked the spring costume, although, as a matter of fact, there were not as many of these "out" as were anticipated. Man was even more conservative than woman in the respect of drawing the golden mean between the wiuterand strictly spring styles. There waa a fair sprinkling of light colored hats and trougere, but the niajonty were just dressed up In their Sunday clothes without regard to the fact that the sun passed the vernal equinox nearly arnontb ago. ALAS I FORlPRIL SnOWERS. And perhaps it was just as well that so much foresight had been used, for alas, before evening tbe -lovely Easter, like Niobe, "was simply dissolved in tears which scattered her daughters far and wide in flight like frightened doves to reach their homes. It will ram in April, and Easter Sunday, even, has not the right of way. People who left the city after church to do the suburbs and pluck the ox-eyed daisies where they nod on their native slopes, came back in a hurry between 4 and 6'pira'.; with their Tew fortuitous daisies, and Easter ribbons well bedewed with the beaiilifol but embarrassing April shower. Some of the ribbons will wash; others will not. But altogether it was simply a superb Easter Sunday, and thousands upon thou sands of those who wentto church yesterday must have arisen this morning with the grand music ot the choirs still ringing in their recollection, and with memories, however fleeting or faint of the fragrance of the flowers of Easter. There were special services in many of the chu relies. TRETT Y AND EFFECTIVE. Ono of the prettiest and richest effects in Easter decoration was at the Church of the Epiphany. The beauty ot the scene in tho chancel was not in the profusion, but in the extreme grace of the disposition of the flowers. The magnificent cathedral glass window of the chancel and the aide chande liors, with white electric lights, shed a soft lustre overthe roses, white and red, stands oflllie8, and rows ot potted palms. The lectern and bapttstery were prettily set oft with bunches of roses. Midway of the church, on tho right and left, were a mass of Easter lilies, tho only decoration outside the sanctuary. Around the altar were the Rev. Dr. J. Randolph McKini, rector; Rev. J. T. Cole, and Rev. J. B. Sterrett, assistants. The sermon was by Dr. McTCim. on the "General subject andsuggestions of the resurrection." The congregation was exceedingly large, a great number ot people standing until the beginning of tbe communion service. This was partaken of by a large proportion of the congregation. The music was remarkably.fine, and was sun aspublishedon Saturday in The Times. At St. John's Church it was impossible to fiud even standing room a half hour before the opening ot the morning services. The beauty of the interior of this church was highly accented by tho richness of the decoration. A conspicuous feature of the ornamentation was a mass of Easter lilies and greens, which was disposed against the oast wall of the chancel . Elsewhere in the sanctuary there were palms androses, spira, and other white flowers. The sermon was by the Rev. Dr. Mackaye Smith on the very appropriate text: "They shall walk with Me in white," signifying the innocence and purity of man in tho resurrection. In the sanctuary with the rec tor were Rev. P.. W. S. WoodandRev. F.H. Bigelow. The music was-cxcelleut. CRUSH AT ST. MATTHEW'S. It was expected thattbecrowd wouldbea crush at St. Matthew's Church, and such was the fact. Hundreds of people were turnedaway.failingtofindaccommodation. The church was quite tastefully but by no means elaborately decorated. The chan cel was brilliant wjth candle lights, and qrnoog the manjr rows of these were dis posed rich and rare roses. The chapels on the right and left were also decorated with roses. Tho musical part of tho services was given with grand and thrilling effect at the offertory and the devotion. A splen dldsermon was delivered by Father Bart, of Trinity Church, Georgetown. Father Kenrick celebrated tho mass, Father Burke, deacon, and Father Lee, sub-deacon. ' AtSt.Augustine's the mass was celebrated by Mgr. Sbaretti, auditor of the papal legtaion, tho masB being preceded by a procession from the priest's residence to the church. The officers of the mass vterei Rev. F. X. BIschoff, deacon; Rev. P, Kane, sub-deacon, master of ceremonies, G. A, Dogherty, Father Griffith occu pied a seat in the sanctuary. The sermon -'was on Easter Day and by Father Devitt, of Georgetown. The music otthe mass was magnificently Bung. " Tho emblems of Easter were many and beautiful in the chancel. There weremasses of Easter lilies to the right and left of the altar, and a very pretty effect was had by the suspension of these., beautiful flowers above the tabernacle. There were many vases of rich roses on the altar and disposed among tho lights. REV. DR. EASTON'tf'BER'MONV " Dr. T. Cbalmors Easton, pastor of the Eastern Presbyterian Church, had "Giad Easter tidings" for tho theme of yester day morning's discourse," and preached about three great central facte the deity of Christ, tho sacrifice of Christ, and His eternal life. There was a large congregation present, and Dr. Easton stood in the midst of bright flowers and broad-leaved paints, i with ferns aud Easter lilies intermin gling, to deliver his messagp. Ho took forhis text the following words, selected from the eleventh chapter of St. John, the divine. "I am Alpha and Omega, first and last; I am no that.liveth andVwas dead, and behold, I am alive forever more. Amen." "The church that denies the Godship ot Christ is the church that Tuns?" hd"Hatd; "take the Godship ot Christ out of the Bible." he quoted, "and to me it is a book without meaning." " 'Besides Me there is no God, waa tho message that came through -prophetic lips ages before the advent of Christ upon earth. When all else shall fail, He shall endure. Though all else Bhall pass away. He will abide. " " "He must come not last, but first and last. Take away His glory, IDs kingship and His divinity, aud you rob Him of aU that makes Him superior. Aud shall thrchurch of God be organized aboutadead Nazarine'.' God forbid! "The church that 'languishes- Isthat in which the light in the candlestick has gone out. The church alone that "proSp'ehiS ' titat oms living, active, working, powerful, united church that rallies about Christ on these thirc great vital .nrncipU;fs :the, Deity, sacrifice and eternal life of Jesus Christ.: At tlieclose of the service It was announced that the ordination of deacons and eiders would occur next Sunday morning. Thre was special Eastef'mosib by' the choir, a principal feature being a solo by Mr. Myers, the offertory entitled "Angels Rolled the Rock Away." ,,, , -,.. .. G REAT THRONGS AT ST. ALO YSIUS Mighty throng3 of the devout are the rulo at St. Aloysins' on feMal days, and yesterday marked no exception to It, as at each service the capacity of the famous church was tried, many wors Uppers' i kneeling outside the pews. The joyous solemnity of the day was honored In earnest prayer, reverent words, .glad.muslc, . and the sacrifice of sweet flowers. The services were conducted In accord ance with the programme as printed in Tbe Times of Saturday; ? The floral decorations were not elaborate, though effective, the stations being bare ot blossoms and tho efforts of th decorators being concentrated in embellishing the sanctuary. Easter lilies, calla 1 11 lea t white carnations, white roses, yellow roses, and jonquils combined into bouquets were distributed thickly among the candles glowing at the altar. Rev. Father McGmney, S. J., was cele brant ot the mass; Rev. FathorDolan, S. J., deacon, and Rev. William Scott, S. J., sub-deacon. Goonod's "Mease Eolmnell" was rendered very effectively by a cboru3 ot forty voices, assisted by Darche's orchestra of twenty pieces. The quartette were Mrs. Kittie Thompson-Berry, soprano: Miss Pauline Whitaker, contralto; Mr. M. W. Handlin, tenor; and Mr. James ,j. Nolan, bass. Miss Jennio Glelma'ii presided at the organ and the music was undor4he di rection of 3lr. Handlin. Tha sermon was preached by Bev. Father Conway, S. J. At St. Patrick's, the Easter services were performed without deviation f roni tbetidb. lished programme. The resurrection was the theme on which Rev. Dr. Stafford dwelt in his sermon, and in words ot homage to Christ, and just counsel to mankind, they told the'story which all the .Christ-loving world yesterday celebrated Jn pious happiness. Monster congregations lironged the great gray church, the musio seamed an inspiration from tho heavens, and spring flowers lent their charms, their. graces, and their sweetness to the scene. It was an Easter, glorious iuthe sight.ot God, that was honored at Luther Memorial Church. The resurrection ot'Hira.Avboihad. that men might live, was tho keynote otthe eloquent discourse delivered by Kev. Dr. Butler. The music was ot tho highest or der, and the flowers that decked the church, were pretty and pleasing. IN OTHER CHURCHES. The Easter services at the West Wash ington Lutheran Church were attended by a laTge congregation yesterday. Rev. S. Billheimer delivered a discourse, his trxt being taken from Itomans, fourth chapter: "Who was delivered., far our. offenses and raised for our justification." Ho graphically described the scene at the tomb. The church was beautifully deco rated with palms and flowers. With flowers, ferns, aud palms cut and potted, in profusion, exhaling fragrance throughout St. John's Episcopal Church on Potomac street, the Easter Sunday services were held. Rev. Charles E. Buck's sermon, from the Gospel ot St. Mark, on "Rolling away the stone f rom'the' sepul-' chre," was very impressive. At Holy Trinity Church fiign"mass"was celebrated, and Rev. Father Baccio .de livered a sermon on the day. The church had beautiful floral decorations. With the pulpit surrounded and clustered with cut Easter and calla lillles and sprays ot palm Rev. Albert R. Stuert, or Christ Church, Georgetown, preached 'his" Easter sermon to an unusually large congregation yesterday morning. The sen-ices were very impressive, forty vested chortcrs-chaiir ing the anthems. Tho congregation at the" West- Street Presbyterian Church listened with much interest to Rev. W. C. Alexander's eloquence yesterday at tbe Easter Sunday morning service. His theme, from Romans, vi:9, dealt with the "Living . Christ, and Reality of Faith." Mr. J. H. Hunter sang a solo entitled "Tho Resurrection." The church was decorated tastefully with lilies, jonquils and palms. - w Rev. B.Peyton Browu.who is acting in tho place of Rev. Joseph B. Stitt, preached aa edifying sermon to the congregation at the, Dumbarton Avenue M.E. Chutch yesterday. The singing was exquisite and the floral decorations presented a beautiful sight.

The pastoi, Rev. Alex.

NOT 1IA.TEHIAL, In This Light Only, Says Dr. Kent, Must tho Resurrection Bo Regarded. -That the doctrine ot the resurrection is to be taken in a spiritual, not material, sense, was the teaching of Rev. Alex. Kent's Eas ter sermon at tho People's Church yester ddy 'morning. He told how it came- about that we fix the day as a movable feast .dependingupoQ the 'occurrence of the full moon after tho vernal equinox, and gave a comparison o the doctrines ot the creeds as to the resur rection o the body. Then he pointed out that none of the Gospel writers profess to have seen Jesus after the resurrection, and two ot them do not say that anybody else saw him. The belief that Christ arose with the mortal body he characterized as a "materialistic, dramatic, and mechan ical way ot conceiving the great spiritual reality." .This sort of misconception passing into tlie teachings of the early church, and coming to the present "has been the great blunder of the centuries" along" with the looking forward to a material second com ing of Christ to judgment and a great cony flagmtioa in which the earth itself shall be burned up. The only sacred writer who says he satr Christ after the crucifixion is Panl, and Paul's report of his vision on the way down to Damascus only states that he and the others saw a great light and he heard a voice saying: "1 am Jesus of Nazareth." Furthermore Paul leaves it as a fair in ference that he saw Christ as he under stood others to say they had seen him. Fur. he says: "Last of all he was seen of me," -aad Is silent as to any difference in tho manifestatiqn. "Jesus always refused to recognlzo existence devoted to selfish ends as life. Mea who were living meanly and selfishly he always spoke ot as dead. A change of purpose and spirit that carried a man oat ot his own self and enlisted him in the service of his fellows, a change that brought him into sympathy and feHowship with God was a passing from death into ' lit e."' ' He. quoted a Congregational writer as holding similar views, and also from Wfeit .tier, showing a like belief on the part ef tbe Quaker poet. In -conclusion, he welcomed as frcea making for right, all ceremonies and war ship under whatever ritual that bring men to think of and follow the diviaely entrain. Christ portrayed ia the Scriptures. RESURRECTION AND THE r.I5B. Keystoaeof Christina Dootrice Considered From a Thcosophloal Point of View. A lecture on "The BesurreeUen and ,tlie Life" was delivered by Mr. Gerge M. Coffin, Presides of the Theosophical "Society, at their hall, No. 419 Tenth, street northwest, last evenlag. The teachings of theesophy, be said, "are 'that the spirit of man "is without birth, and meeteth not death; it Is ancient, constantand eternal, and' Is not stain when .his body is destroyed," for in accsrdnnce with the teachings of Jesus, the kingdom of God Is within him and the spirit ot God dwelleth in him. This being true, the life of man Is co eternal with that ot God, which is without beginning and without end. As the king- .dom of God Is within man, then all ot heaven he experiences is in this kingdom of God within himself, and so all of hell, so-called, must also be within his own consciousness. On this point, theosophy teaches that at, death the immortal part of man, made up ot spirit, soul and mind, continues to live in an appropriate "incorruptible" body, afterbeingdivestedat death of the physical body. Life Is one endless chain ot causes ana effects, which produce perpetual change of form, and man beingsubjecfc to this law, , puts,pff old bodiesand takeson those which, are now. When he has acquired ail the experiences of earth life and learned aU. the secrets of nature on this plane of. being, lie is no longer subject to rebirth on this earth, and so ha cotMyiered death, "which, as St. Paul says, is "the last en emy to be destroyed."
