But efch re'uurring i -year r'ings to view the crownine trinmph of our mortal career, the Resurrection of the dead. St. Pal, the most gifted of the apostolic writers,, cl)pains the Resurrection by a simple simile. He speaks of a grain of wheat sown in the earth. In its decay the quickened germ springs forth, and the beautiful stalk, bearing its golden grain, is typical of the rise from death to life. 'Tie birth of the butterfly from the chrysa lis is also a familiar figure of the victory of life over death. The Resurrection teaches aome Sthing more than the doctrine of the immortality of the soul, a - creed held by pagans and Chris tians alike. The followers of Chriat believe also in the resur Srection of the body; that with the body exists a germ of eternal life which, though its earthly habi'i ments shallbe turned to dust and scattered, will at the summons of the Almighty rise heavenward it: a semblance of its former lbeing but clothed with the glorious garb of immortality. When the an el appeared to the two Marys at the tomb "lis coun tenance was like lightning and his raiment white as snow." But when in the gray of early morning the risen Lord accosted Mary a Magdaline with: "Woman, why weepest thou?" she thought the figure was that of the gardner, - and said: "Sir, if thou iast borne him hence, tell me whoere thou lha6t laid him, and I will take him away." One word re vealed the Lord. He said to her: I "Mary," and she turned and said unto him: "Master," The Resurrection is a mistery; but there is little in this life and nothing in the life beyond that is plain to us. We know on the tes timony of othersa that the oxygcn in the air is necessary to our exis tence, but we can not see it not' touch it. We believe on the evi (hence of astronomers that the stars are great worlds that -move harmoniously in their spheres; but for t'his faith the magnificent constellations wouldl make but lit I. tie more impression outUhe human intelligiee than the fitful light of fireflies on a summer' a night. It is an inexpressible consolation to grief-stricken hearts to feel that s* dearly loved forms have not van ished foiover. What a deep so lace for a mother, weeping as if a heart string broke with every sob, to know the parting is but for a - time, and that there will he memo I ry and recognition in the life eter nal. Christ conquered death. The victories of Alexander and Ctesar are almost buried in obliviln among the wreckages of time. Buit the triumph of Jesus of Gallilel over the g'ave was celebrated on ii the past Sunday throughout the eivilized world as an ever living, glorious tact. A heavy star, bright with its promise to the human race, rested' above the cradle of the infant of Bethlehem. The Sunshine of the .frst Easter morning banished the shadows of death and opened to *. mortal vision the splendor of ever 5. lasting lifr.-Y1. 0.

When there is no news he must make somc, and he must, for every issue, provide ý. the most brilliant editorials and f. highly interesting reading matter v suited to the taste and ideas of *. every one of the'readers of his pa per. That he should fail in com ing up to these requirements, is not to be wondered at, and that the mlhi:y censors he encLounters (1 at every land should frequently d-clare "t!iat tlhere': nothing to lenad in that paper," is as natucral a3 rolling (f1 a floating log. Te man who can't stand the ordeal of the hi:rslust criticisms has no le busiocss to ibe a journalist, yet the a woods are full of people who think that it is the easiest k:nd of work and it is only when the reflector of their brains is smashed by the coldl hammers of the auctioneer that they realize how hurl it is to revolutionize seciety and to turn the world up side down. IHence, athe man who can manage to float along in the billowy sea of journ. alism, should be peraitted occa sionally to "point with pride," to IS the complimentary notices that are bestowed ulpon his work, In fact he can be sufered to pz.rade them before his audiences. * * * * ---Louisiiana Realew.
