Trinity, St. Mary's Avenue and
First Methodist Organiza
tions in Special Services.
Three impressive choral service
were held Sunday at Trinity cathe
dral, one at 6 a. m., 11 o'clock and at
7:30 in the evening. American flags
added a patriotic touch to the Easter
decorations, and each member of the
choir wore small flag on his sur
plice. At the 11 o'clock service the patri
otic note was carried through the en
tire service. Mr. Ben Stanley, organ
ist and choirmaster, prefaced the
playing of the Easter organ pre
lude with the inspiring strains of
"America," which brought the entire
body of worshippers to their feet,
and Dean Tancock preached his ser
mon on "Loyalty," pointing out that
the country owed loyalty to the presi
dent in civic affairs and to Jesus
Christ in religious affairs.
The large choir furnished appropri
ate special music, with incidental
solos by Mrs. Stanley, and other
members of the choir, and exalted the
service with the beauty and spiritual
significance of song. A majestic festi
val "Te Deum" in B flat, by Dudley
Buck, and an inspiring anthem,
"Awake, Glad Soul, Awake," by
Schnecker, were parts of the almost
entirely choral service which especi
ally carried the Easter spirit. The
organ music was of the same high
and lofty plane of music as the
choral portions -nd the congrega
tional hymns were alf of Easter im
port. At St. Mary's Avenue.
A large congregation turned out to
hear the special Easter vesper set-
ice at St. Mary's Avenue Congrega
tional church at 4 o'clock. The serv
ice was almost .entirely musical, there
being but the Scripture reading, "The
Entombment" evening, and the "Res
urrection," morning, given by the
pastor, Rev. G. A. Hulbert, the latter
being a brief spoken portion of the
consecutive Easter story that was
carried out in the music. The serv
ice, from the preliminary hymn upon
the chimes, worked gradually through
the entombment of Jesus to the res
urrection and to the grandeur and
majesty of the Hallelujah Chorus,
with which it closed. The hymns
upon the chimes, organ prelude and
a brief prologue for women's voices,
"Alleluia," by Lisit, preceded the
processional hymn and the entry of
the choir, which is under the direc
tion of Thomas J. Kelly. The scries
of events depicted through the serv
ice progressed from the Scripture
reading by means of organ solos,
hymns, vocal solos and choral num
bers, all carefully chosen for their
suitability for the arrangement and
the occasion. Solos from Mendels
sohn's "Hymn of Praise" were sung
by Mr. Walter Dale and Mrs. Kelly,
incidental solos in the anthems by
Mrs. Kelly and Miss lone Beats, ar.d
among the choral numbers was a
chorus for women's voices "Alleluia,"
from the oratorio "Christus," by
Liszt. Mr. Martin Bush is the or

Of the German's explanation that
they deported only the unemployed
among the conquered people, this of
ficial says: ,
"They needed skilled and active
artisans and these men were naturally
still unemployed. The authorities did
not, however, evidently dare to an
nounce their real wishes."
"Belgium at this moment," says s
letter written in December, "is going
through a reign of terror, it is hard to

French revolution were very much
"The fashion ,in which any given
recruitment is carried out depends
very largely on the character of the
officer in command. A guard of
Uhlans is generally necessary, some
times backed with machine guns. At
times it is thought necessary to
charge the watching crowds.
"Various methods are employed to
force the men who refuse to sign and
work. Starvation is the most promi
nent. Men are placed in an ex
cessively heated room and when in a
great sweat thrust out of doors.
"In Ghent it is learned con
fidentially that 235 men have died
from the treatment or work they re
ceived. In more than one case the
wife was summoned to the com
mandatur and handed a bundle of
clothes with the laconic remark 'Your
husband is dead.'"

Seed That Fell on
Good Ground
The first Pierce-Arrow Motor Trucks, sold six years ago, were
like seed that fell on good ground. They have borne a hundred
fold to their owners and to us. ,
Owners who began with one or two Pierce-Arrows have
steadily increased their purchases year after year. But they
did not buy in quantities until their first Pierce-Arrow had
been thoroughly tried out under the most exacting conditions
of actual service. Then on the solid basis of operating results
they standardized their fleets with
Motor Trucks
Or example: The Texas Company bought
its first Pierce-Arrow truck
in 1912, and began a series of operating tests that
led to the purchase of four more Pierce-Arrows
in 1915. These in turn were tested under varied
service conditions with results so satisfactory that
the Texas Company has now purchased a total
of 110 Pierce-Arrow trucks.

"I Can't Taste It At All, Mother"
Nujol neither looks, tastes, nor
acts like the "medicine" the child
has been accustomed to. In
fact, Nujol isn't medicine at all
in the ordinary sense.
Nujol, unlike drugs or physics, is
not absorbed by the system, and
hence cannot form a habit. It acts as
a mechanical lubricant, keeping the
intestinal contents soft, soothing the
inflamed mucous membranes and so
promoting normal movements.
For children, particularly, no other
remedy is at once so harmless and
so effective.
As Nujol is not a physic but
a lubricant, it does not gripe
or upset the system. Being
tasteless, it is not unpleasant to
The Standard Oil Company (New
Jersey) has used its world-wide re
sources in producing Nujol and its
reputation is behind the product.
Nujol is the only remedy for constipation
we manufacture. The genuine sold only
in pint bottles bearing Nujol trodt-niark.
All bottles filled at our Nujol plant, ab
solutely modern and sanitary.
Write today for an instructive book
let on Nujol and its uses.
