TACOMA TO OBSERVE WAR-TIME EASTER
HOW CUSTOM
ORIGINATED
Ad old rhyme contains a complete explana
tion of the expensive modem Easter parade:
"At Easter let your clothes be new
Or else be sure you will it rue."
As in marry other festivals symbolism, cus
tom and superstition are closely combined in
the popular observance of Easter day.
Flowers are freely used as emblems of the
Resurrection having just risen from the earth
where they seem to have been buried during
the winter snows.
The egg was a very ancient symbol of the
universe in the time of the ancient Egyptians.
Bonie writers claim that Easter eggs were first
dyed red in memory of the blood shed by
Christ, but it is probable that the custom of
coloring eggs originated with the Persians who
believed that the earth was hatched from an
immense egg.
Eggs are exchanged as Easter gifts by the
people of many lands, and from this practice
grew the various sports with eggs, egg hunt
ing, egg rolling and battles with hard boiled
The bunny came into the Easter celebration
by wty of Germany. A genuine Easter bunny
is ahvays pure white and he is supposed to hide
{lie colored eggs for which children search on
Easter morning.
The name by which we know the day is
identical with that of the ancient Saxon god
dess of spring, Easter or Eostre, whose feast
day fell in the month of April.
FARM LOAN BANK IS
RETARDED IN STATE
By its negligent failure to en
act the farm loan legislation asked
by Secretary of the Treasury Mo-
Adoo, the Washington legislature
haa retarded the development of
the bunk in this state.
It lias not, however, prevented
the establishment of the bank at
Spokane, aa was feared at first.
This assurance has been received
by State Senator Ralph Metealf
from W. W. Klannagan, secretary
PIMPLY? WELL, DON'T BE 1
People Notice It. Drive Them
Off with Dr. Edwards'
Olive Tablets
A pimply face will not embarrass
you much longer if you get a package'
of Dr. Edwards' Olive Tablets. The
skin should begin to clear after you
have taken the tablets a few nights.
Cleanse the blood, the bowels and
the liver with Dr. Edwards' Olive
Tablets, the successful substitute for (
calomel—there's never any sickness
or pain after taking them.
Dr. Edwards' Olive Tablets do that
■which calomel does, and just as effec-.
tively, but their action is gentle and
safe instead of severe and irritating.
No one who takes Olive Tablets is
ever cursed with "a dark brown
taste," bad breath, dull, listless, "no
good" feeling, constipation, torpid
liver, bad disposition or pimply face.
Dr. Edwards' Olive Tablets are a
purely vegetable compound mixed
with olive oil; you will know them by
their olive color.
Dr. Edwards spent years among pa
tients afflicted with liver and bowel
complaints, and Olive Tablets are the!
immensely effective result.
Take one or two nightly for a
week. See how much better you fee)
»nd look. 10c and 25c. All druggists.

the legislature's negligence.
.Slaughtered in HnuMe
The legislation asked for pro
vlded merely that farm loan bond
should be declared a lawful In
vestment for fiduciary funds in th
state.
A bill embodying this was In
troluced by Senator Metealf am
passed the senate without opposl
tlon.
But in the face of letters fron
', Secretary McAdoo that the bene
fits of the farm loan bank rnigh
be lost here if the bill were noi
passed, it was buried in the houst
rules committee, headed by Speak
er Guy Kelly of Ta«oma, bo busy
,were the leaders cutting the pi€
iind spending the state's money.
Mate w ill lv- i „,•,,■•
"It Is to be regretted that the
Htate legislature of Washington
did not follow .the suggestion of
Secretary McAdoo," says Secre
tary Flannagan's letter.
"In point of fact, until such law
Ir enacted, the state itself will be
the loser, in not having this ad
-vantßge possessed by th*. great
majority of states which do follow
tho suggestion.
"You can rest assured that this
failure on the part of your legis
lature will not affect the estab
lishment of the federal land bank
;it Spokane. It hae been organ
ized and the secretary of the treas
ury requested to make payment of
his subscription to the capital
stock.
Farmers Anxious
"I can see that the failure to en
act the law will lessen the local
demand for farm loan bonds, and
to this extent retard the develop
ment of the Spokane bank, but
the farm loan board will not dis
criminate against the bank on that
account, although such failure
may create the necessity of the
board assisting that bank in mar
ketins its bonds."
The secretary's letter was in
reply to one from Senator Metealf
urging the need of the bank here.
Since the legislature fell down
on Its job, many farmers have
been anxious concerning the fate
of the bank in this state.
Manager Itadke of the Yeomen has
signed "Otta" Ofstad, a brother
of Ab Ofstad, the veteran semi

Sheriff Longmii'e says he has
been having between 30 and 40
calls a day from men who want
Jobs as guards. "Lots of people
think I'm running an employment
bureau," he says. "I tell them if
they want to guard something they
ought to enlist."

nearly every legislator singly to
vote for the bill.

Jesus: American Citizen
A Holy Week Interpretation by a Noted Christian of How the Nazarene
Would Conduct Himself Today, Were He a Citizen of an American
City in These Stirring Times.
LOVE THE SUPREME THING IN HIS LIFE!
To Jesus, LOVE is the supreme
thing in life. It overshadows
everything else
■— c 1 t izenship,
politics, justice,
religions, busi
ness, and nil
else that en
gages the atten
tion of men!
He says love
is the greatest
tiling in the
world — it is
"the fulfilling
of the law."
This is wh.it
makes 11 is own
love m> wonderful. It isn't a
vague, vanishing tiling— some
thing that disappears into thin air
when you need it most, and expect
most from it—it is strong, pas
sionate, manly.
Neither is it so colorless and
general that it means little to in
dhiduals. The love of Jesus at
tracts men—little grovpa of them
have gotten closer to him than the
crown.
One man — a fisherman — 1b
known ao "the one whom Jesus
Ijves"—only bSOftUM li" seems to
understand Jesus better than the
rest of us.
Ills home is always open to
tiiose who wish to know him.
Sometimes men come to Him by
nisht to talk out their hearts.
And Jesus never deals in plati
tudes that sound fine enough, but
never get you anywhere.
It's liecatise He juits His own
heart Into Mis speech that men are
won l»y Him you quickly see that
It 1b love which prompt! ilim—He
cares little about fine phrttM.
■When men call on Jesus He
speaks in plain, ragg«4 language
which everybody can understand.

BY THE REV. CHARLES STELZLE.
"And who is my neighbor?" And
He told a story — a parable —
about a man in this town, who is
despised because of his race. This
man proved that he wan a better
neighbor than some of the high
brows who wouldn't associate
with a poor chap who had been
beaten by the gang.
Jesus loves this town. He loves
its people.
He would Rive himself for them
in service, even to the point of
sacrificing all that He might claim
as His own—time, comfort, con
venience.
He has said tliat He would gf*l
His life for His friends—a man
couldn't do more than this.
That's why Jesus, Cie citizen,
may have anything that He wants
in this town. The wonderfully
strange thing about it is thai He
doesn't want favors- He's quite
willing- tlita others should havt
tliem, and lie is all the time pour
lag tiieni into others' lives.
He is great -just as a citizen—
