The ladies of the Christian church held their annual Easter sale on Fri day and Saturday of last week. It was one of the most successful of the many successful Easter sales those ladies have conducted. They took in a little over $200. The ladies above referred to hereby tender their thanks to Mr. T. C. Duugan for the sales rooms so gener ously furnished them. They also thank Mr. Chas. Koock for the eight neckties donated to them, from which they realize $2, also Mr. II. A. Evans, who generously donated oranges for the sale. Mrs. I). J. French proved to be an expert in selling neckties as she sold every one Mr. Koock donated and whenever Mr. Koock is short of help and wants somebody that knows how to sell neckties, call on Mrs. - French, she won't let a man or boy get away without leaving their quarter and taking away a necktie. The ladies wish to thank everybody who patronized them in any way dur ing their sale and especially the folks in the Union neighborhood, who so generouslv donated butter, eggs and chickens. They never will forget that grest basket of eggs, butter, etc.. that Mrs. .lames Bucher sent in. They thought sure there had been a mis take and that it was meant for the store. The secret of their great suc cess is. we think, that in some way it had leaked, but that these ladies had pledged $300 for rebuilding thechurch. So everyone just felt like helping them. -The Kansas City hay man. who has been here for several weeks, ship ped out to Kansas City, Friday, a big W (oteuT THAW S&'J I The Silent Reaper. HOBL1TZELL.

We sit in the shadow of mourning, Beside the bier of the dead, "Tis a mother whose smiles have all vanished, The voice can no longer be heard. So cold, so silent, so death like, She gives no response to our call, Can it be that mother has left us. Can it be that mother has gone. The death of Mrs. Lora Opel-Pol-ley is keenly felt in our community. Mrs. Policy was an ideal wife, daugh ter, mother, and her greatest pleasure was in ministering to the needs of her family and her greatest joy was in their comfort and happiness. She was also a most kind and obliging neigh bor taking pleasure in doing kindly acts. From early girlhood she lad been a member of the German M. E. church, and her every day life was lived in full keeping with her long Christian profession. For a number of years she had suf fered from chronic stomach and bowel trouble, and oh, how patiently she bore these sufferings. Now life's storms are passed, and she rests wait ing to take up the new life work that is her portion in the world into which she has entered. It is not our portion to know what awaits on the other side, but we do know that 'in His wisdom He doeth all things well, and thus we may enter the unknown without a fear, for we are all a part of Him who created us, and death is but the waking into a better exis tence. ' How feeble are the words we utter to carry condolence to hearts bereav ed. The family chain is broken: no one can fill her place in the vacant chair: no one can take her place in yourhearts. It will be. asacred thought in years to come to know that she shed radiance in the home as long as she did. .blowers are uou s i noughts in bloom, and His love for His own was truly manifested by the many friends and relatives who expressed their sympathies through His emblems, a beautiful floral piece being sent by the Odd Fellows lodge of this city her husband being a member of Ore gon lodge. Her beautiful life is ended, and the world is better for her having lived in it. Loved while living, she is loved in death.

Both were enjoyed. The congregations morning and evening were large. Easter joy was radiant in each face. Our choir out did themselves. A beautiful anthem and a solo for the morning and four anthems at night. If you missed this you missed a rare treat. The Dowers that adorned the pulpit and platform were a delight to the eye and an uplift to the soul. Flowers. music and the services all blended in a happy harmony. Thk Pastor. Eradicate the Evil. The alarming proportions which the drug habit has attained could not be emphasized more than by the fact the dealers in drugs have themselves seen the necessity of taking steps to cur tail it. At a recent meeting of the Pennsylvania branch of the American Pharmaceutical association a resolu tion was passed setting forth the duty of the profession in this regard and putting the members on record as against the selling of harmful drugs for improper purposes. It was agreed that such drugs should be sold only on the prescription of a physi cian and that no such prescription should be refilled without the order of the physician. The druggists have it within their power to eradicate the drug evil if they will. The conditions under which harmful drugs are manufac tured and sold to the retailer are such as to make it a much simpler problem than the curbing of abnormal appe tites for strong drink. The limita tions upon the persons who can sell drugs are of a character to preclude the sale of any considerable quantities in a surreptitious manner. Elimi nate the unscrupulous and over- greedy druggist and the problem is more than half solved. Notice to Banks and Bankers.
