Easter Sunday was an ideal day.
The rains of the two days pre
vious came but to freshen and re
vive and make even more beauti
ful the verdure clad mountains
The sun shone with ai genial
warmth, the azure blue sky had
but a few lace-like clouds, and
Dame Nature, clad in the most
delicate green, smiling and laden
with flowers, was in attune with
the sacred day. ;
Of course the ladies took advan
tage of the superb weather and
Main street was a veritable fash
ion parade between 12 aud one
o'clock. Many pretty gowns and
hats were seen, and one poor,
puzzled man was heard to exclaim,
"Well, what bothers me is this:
Which is the prettiest, the' hats
and the dresses or their charming

man, of course.

Easter was appropriately and im
St. James church never looked
more beautiful. Dogwood, Nar
cissus, spirears aud snowballs were
used in profusion in the scheme
of decoratiou in the body of the
church, while dogwood blossoms
and magnificent Annunciation
lilies transformed the chancel into
a bower of beauty.

was impressive and eloquent and
the church was crowded with de
The special Easter music, with
Mrs. F. W. Eubank at the organ,
was fine, the solo, "He is not here,

were Mrs.. Louiae Springer ""Miss.!

At the five o'clock services for
the children, Rev. Willcox spoke
of the necessity of discipline in
our daily lives, punctuality being
one of the results of this discipline.
At the Methodist church Rev.
Jno. W. Moore delivered an im
pressive sermon, taking his text
rom Acts 26:8: "Why is it
thought incredible with you if God
should raise the dead.'
Special Easter music by the
choir, a solo by Mr. Pless in the
evening and by Mrs. Pless in the
morning, the decorated altar made
the Easter services very beautiful.
There were no services held at
the Baptist church.
At the Roman Catholic cnurcn
Father Marion, of Asheville, con
ducted the usual Easter services.
Owing to the illness of Mrs. John
ston there was no special music.

(By Charlotte Young)
I wish you knew a way I know
Along the Cullasaja.
There, everything to quietness
And happy thoughts persuade you.
The river sings its own wild song
Around the rocky turnings,
There honey-suckles lieht the banks
With red and yellow burnings. '
Along the cliffs the ferns uncurl,
And trails the pink arbutus,
And here the wood thrush lilts a song
As sweet as any flute is.
I wish you knew a way I know
By dreaming flowers and river,
The little cares that hurt you so
Would float away forever.
