That the Sun Dances on the Sea on
the Day Commemorative of the
Resurrection Is Simple
A N IRISH legend runs to the ef
fect that on Easter day the sun
dances on the sea ; and the
legend is true. The writer knows it
is. He has seen this phenomenon
when as a child he climbed from the
little farmhouse which was his home,
a matter of a couple of miles to the
top of a rugged mountain overlooking
the Irish sea. This phenomenon can
he seen any Easter day when the skies
are bright. All necessary is to be
on some commanding height as the
sun pokes his head out of the sea to
the east.
The British isles give expression to
the thought that April showers bring
May flowers, and it is not every Easter
day that the sun rises in a clear sky.
That is the difference between the Brit
ish isles and California. Easter day
may come any one of the 20 days fol
lowing the 25th of March. No matter
how early it comes In southern Cali
fornia the sun generally comes up In
a clear sky. Environment has caused
all evolution, and is causing it still.
These desr skies account for the way
Californians celebrate Easter day.
They have at Riverside on Rnbldoux
mountain a great cross, where annually
at sunrise on Easter day thousands
are accustomed to gather to see the
sun rise on the mountain tops and
dance In the heavens. The hearts of
the thousands who assemble on that
mountain top under the blazing cross
dance with the son. The Hebrew
prophet said: "I hear the sound of
feet of the rain." Why not then see
the feet of the sun dance upon the
sea or mountain top? On Easter of last
year It is said that 20,000 people as
sembled on Rubidoux mountain, where
their hearts danced with joy at the
thought of the resurrection.
Those who invented the Rubidoux
mountain Easter festival set an ex
ample that is being followed by many
others. April showers are rare things
in southern California, and one may
plan for weeks ahead for a sunrise fes
tival on Easter day. It may be expect
ed that this -custom will grow and
prove another attraction to the land of
sunshine and flowers.
Eaater Cleaning in Rome.
In Rome and other large Italian
cities there is a great house-cleaning
at Easter, and hawkers appear in the
streets selling long-handled, roughly
made brooms from which to brush
spiders' webs from lofty ceiling cor
ners. This Easter cleaning is a sur
vival of the purification, part of U»
Jewish Passover. >
BPENINO if the
rather O'Suüiven in Morgan
City and Father Adalbert in
Berwick Deliver Strong Dis
courses to Large Audiences
The Rev. Father Adalbert of St.
Louis, Mo., opened the Mission in
Berwick Sunday morning after the
9 o'clock Mass with a sermon on
"The Two Standards."
Sunday night at 7 p. m. he spoke
to an audience too large for the
church, as fifty extra seats had to
be procured. His subject was "Life's
Purpose." The chief purpose, said
the Rev. speaker, of man's existence
here below, is the salvation of his
soul, for, in view of the fact that
there is a heaven to be gained and
a hell to be avoided, Life is not
worth living unless a man live to
save his soul. Or in the words:
"What will it profit a man if he
gains the whole world and lose his
own soul" and yet some there are
who propose to themselves earthly
and created things as the highest
and last end of their existence.
Some seek their last end in riches
and wide possessions, others hope to
find it in honors and high stations;
others again fancy their last end to
be found in pleasures and amuse
ments; yet Wealth and Honor and
Pleasures cry out with thunderous
voice throughout the ages: "It is
not with us." For, above the dim
and turmoil of frenzied finance,
fleeting honros, and midnight de
bauch, are heard the eternal ques
tions of the soul calling for some
thing better, something higher, call
ing for something Infinite.
Father Adalbert is not a stranger
to some who live in the town across
the Bay. But to hear him speak,
with is accustomed ease and power
in tiie neat Berwick church, was a
pleasure rare indeed which will long
be remembered by those who were
The attendance yesterday at the
different Mission exercises was
most gratifying. The Mission open
ed at the 9:30 Mass after the custo
mary blessing of the Palms, during
which Mr. Raouf Delas sang Gou
nod, "Les Rameaux." The Rev.
Jesuit Missionary preached the
opening sermon in which he explain
ed the meaning of the Mission and
of the Great Holy Week.
The night sendee had a large at
tendance. The sermon was on God's
Rights and Man's Duties. Father
Peter O'Sullivan is a forceful, dir
ect and fluent speaker. His charac
teristic note is sincerely, and a de
termination to convince without
disregarding the amenities of polite i
language and kind appeals to the j
soft side of our nature. His talk ;
was chiefly addressed to Catholics, 1
showing them what it meant to be
! a Catholic and what it costs, and
1 how the only way they can gain in
the estimation, of their non-catho
l lie friends is by translating their be
: lief into deeds. The impression he
j leaves is one of absolute friendli
ness softening the severity of catho
lic teaching, so familiar to Catholic
audiences by the gentle persuasion
of an earnestness which draws its
chief and only strength from the
study of the crucified Leader, His
Tabernacle and His Communion
rail. He strongly reminded the men
of their weak points in considering
themselves superior to women, be
cause of their self-assumed intel
lectuality, whilst they forget that
the reason why their mothers,
siaters, wifes and their daughters
practice religion more easily is not
through sentimality, but rather be
cause of their superior morality,
which makes them more capable of
appreciating the God of Purity who
dwells on the Catholic altars.
Father O'Sullivan is exceedingly
practical in all his illustrations, ex
plaining old duties in the new light
of this fast workday world.
After the sermon, Benediction of
the Blessed Sacrament was given
during which a beautiful Duet "O
Salutaris" was sung by Mesdames
Joseph Patterson and Ollie Hebert.
During the Mission the order of
services wil be as follows:
j 5:30 a. m. Mass and short instrue
| tion.
6:30 a. m. Mass, instruction and
j blessing of religious articles.
3:00 p. m. Children's Mission.

fortunate to be present. For to have
heard the impassioned words of this
missionary in one sermon needs no

on the other vital questions with
which he is dealing.

the following subjects.
Monday night—"Life's Failure."
Tuesday night—"The Great Ship

of American species includes 170 of

125 of red, and 2 of Protobalanus.

Many Have Mistaken Notion That the
White Ones Are So Much Su
perior to the Brown.
Because an egg has a white shell, it
is no better than an egg with a brown
shell. The popular impression to th«
contrary is a childish notion costing
the housewife many a penny. Tt is a
good time to get this foolish idea out
of our heads.
The white egg may he more, attrac
tive to look upon titan its brown sis
ter or brother, but that is all. It is
not more nutritions. And just because
It is a fad the grocer gets a higher
price for it—from 10 to 15 cents a
dozen, ns a rule.
If eggs were used for decorative pur
poses, there might be some excuse for
the greater popularity of the white
ones. But on any other ground, no.
So. when your grocer offers you "white
leghorn" eggs at 70 cents a dozen, and
in the next basket are brown ones.
Just as fresh, take the latter. And
then, again, the chances are that the ;
"white leghorn" eggs were never laid
by white leghorn hens. There are not
enough white leghorn hens in th«
country, however Industrious they may
be, to produce half the eggs credited
to them.
The grocer may have his little joke*
perhaps. But when it comes to eggs,
you needn't let him have it at your
expenses. Remember that eggs are
just eggs.—New York Globe.
Ointment ad Diet for Rheumatism.
For acute articular rheumatism the
following treatment is recommended
by a writer in the Medical Adviser,
quoted by the Medical Record: An
ointment made of four drams each of
Ichthyol, methyl salicylate end oil of
turpentine, mixed with four ounces of
lanolin, is applied to the affected
joints and covered with cotton and
oiled silk. The patient is put to bed
in flannel nightclothes and between
blankets for absolute rest.
His diet must l>» liquid, preferably
milk, together with fruit juices and
plenty of water. Elimination through
bowels, skin and kidneys must be at
tended to carefully. At the beginning
of the treatment a dose of calomel and
bicarbonate of soda is given and fol
lowed after four hours by Rochelle
salts or a seidlltz powder. Rhubarb
and soda may be given to advantage
until the tongue Is clean. Throughout
convalescence the patient mnst abstain
from all animal foods and alcohol. ,«
Mountains That Mova.
The results of geodetic studies by
British scientists in the Himalayas
and the Tibetan mountains indicate an
apparent creeping of these gigantic
mountain ranges, the greatest on th«
globe, sidewise toward the south, with
a consequent crumpling up of the SI*
walik hills. For a long time it has
been known that there exist certain
anomalies in the density of the earth
ander and adjacent to the Himalayas,
but this suggestion of a creeping mo
tion is novel. The surveys that still
are In progress may eventually dis
close the real facts, but the opera
tions on the Tibetan side are rendered
difficult by the fact that Tibet is not
yet wholly accessible to the scientists.
