At The Churches
The Easter Sunday meeting at the
Spiritualist church was well attended
by a large and appreciative audience,
One hundred and fifty people were there
and many were unable to get seats.
The interior was beautifully-decorated
with lilies, carnations and roses, and
the speaker's stand was tastily draped
with white curtains. Mrs. Guy Reraore
rendered a beautiful solo, "Eyening
Star," with piano accompaniment.
Mrs. Remore has a beautiful voice
soft and mellow, and with more vocal
lessons from some of the Great Mas
ters, such as she intends to take, she
will undoubtedly shine as one of the
great Prima Donnas of the Northwest.
