Away with your talk about hypo Static Union and Soteriology of the Council of Trent and the metaphysics of religion a Bill would freeze practical christianity out of Trio world but pass along this Gardener s coat to All nations that they May touch the hem of it and feel the thrill of the Christly brotherhood. Not supposing Tho Man to be Caesar not supposing him to be Socrates but Quot supposing him to be the of that is what helped Joseph Wedgwood toiling amid Tho heat and the dust of the potteries until could make for que m Charlotte the first Royal table service of English manufacture.

I Rode Over the new cantilever Bridge that spans King unit a Bridge duo feet Long 850 feet of chasm from Bluff to Bluff. I passed Over it without any anxiety. Why because 22 locomotives and 22 ears Laden w Ith gravel had tested the Bridge thousands of people standing on tin Canadian Side thousands standing on the american Side to applaud Trio achievement. And however Long Tho train of our immortal interests May be we arc to remember that god s Bridge of mercy spanning tin chasm of sin has been fully tested by tie awful tonnage of All the pardoned sin of All the apes Church militant standing on Ono Bank Church triumphant lauding on the other Bank. Of it was to the seven do tied Mary that Christ made Liis first postmortem appearance. There is another thing that the world and the Church have lint observed in regard to this resurrection and that is it was the morning Twilight. If the been inv cute and Mary bail As Gisl a watch As sonic of the. Marys of our time have she would have found it was about half past 5 of clock a. M. Matthew says it was in tie Dawn Mark says it was at the Sun rising Luke says it was very Early in Hie morning John says it w As while it was yet dark. In other words it was Twilight. Tomt was the o clock at which Mary Magdalene mistook Christ for the Gardener. What oms that mean it moans there Are shadows Over Tho grave in lifted shadows of mystery that Tiro hovering. Mary stooped Down and tried to look to the other end of the crypt the gave hysteric outcry. Err Ruhl not see to the other cud of the crypt. Neither can you see to the other cud of the grave of your and. Neither can we see to the other Mel of our own grave. Of if there were shadows Over the family plot belonging to Joseph of Arim Thoa is it strange that there should be some shadows Over our family lot easter re astr not easter noon. Shadow of unanswered question i Why were they taken away from us Why were they Ever Given to us if they were to be taken so soon Why were they taken so suddenly Why could they not have uttered some Farewell words Why a Short question but a Witolo crucifixion of agony in it. By Shadow on the Graves of Pood men and worn in who seemed to die Bosforo their work was done. Shadow on All the Graves of children because we ask ourselves w by so Beautiful a Craft launched at All if it was to be wrecked one mile outside of the Harbor but Bat did Mary Magda line Havo to do in order to get More Light on that grave Sho had ouly to wait.

Half past. 5 among the tombs now but soon to be the tic Many of explanation Anil beatitude. It was in the morning Twilight that Mary Magdalene mistook Christ for a Gardener. Another thing Tho world and the Church have tint observed a that is Christ s pathetic credentials. How do you know it was not a Gardener his garments said was a Gardener. Tho flakes of the upturned Earth scattered Union his garments said lie was a Gardener. How do you know tin was not a Gardener All before faster had Gono by gave to some of Liis disciples Liis three in Dpi trials. showed them his hands and Liis Side. Three paragraphs written in rigid or depressed letters. A scar in the right Palm in tie left Palm Ai cur amid the ribs scars Sears. Tomt is the Way they knew him. That is the Way you and i will know him. Aye am i saying this morning too much when i say that will be one of the ways in which you Ami i will know each other by the scars of Earth Quot ears of Accident scars of sick mss scars of persecution scars of hard work scars of Battle scars of old age. When i see Christ a surn red body having sours it makes in think that our remodeler Ami resurrected bodies will Havo scars. Why before we got out of this world some of us in covered with scars All Over. I in ave ii will not be a Hay into which float Simm r yachts a pleasuring with the Gay Bunting Aud with tin d sails As fair As when tiny were first unfurled. 11 a veil will to More like a Navy Yard where Nicu of Sarcomo in from Trafalgar and Loput with masts twisted by a Cyclone Meu of War struck of All sides by 7-1 Pounders Man of War with decks or Roli d of the Shell. Old constitutions. Old constellations floating in discharged service to rest forever. In the resurrection Christ Reedc nil need by soars. A a ont Mil i will i Orodon titled und will recognize each other by scars. Do you think them now a disfigurement do you think them now a badge of in Durative i Teli you the glorious thought this morning they no going to be the menus of heavenly recognition. A notable fact. There is one More thing that Tho world Ami the Church have not noticed in this resurrection of Christ nil that is that Christ from Friday to Sabbath was lifeless in a hot climate where sanitary prudence demanded that burial take place Tho same Day As death and where Thero was no ice to retard dissolution. Yet. After three Days comes up so healthful so robust and so rub Cund Mary Magdalene takes him fora Gardener. Not supposing him to be an invalid from n Hospital not supposing him to be a Corpse Fri i the Tomb but supposing him to be Tho Gardener. Healthful by the breath of tie upturned Sod and by a perpetual life in the Sunshine. After Christ s interment every cellular tissue broke Down and nerve Aud artery and brain wire a physiological wreck and yet Conns up Swarthy rub Cund und Well. When 1 see after such mortuary Sile Ueo such Radiant appearance that settles it that whatever should become of the bodies of our Christian dead they Are going to Chino up Trio be rvs re Strung the optic nerve Reil a imbued the car drum a vibrate the whole body lifted up. Without its weaknesses and worldly uses for which there is no resurrection. Come is it not almost time for us to go out to meet cur reanimated dead can Yea not hear tin lifting of the rusted Latch of the glorious thought the glorious Consolation of this subject when 1 find Christ coming up without any of Trio lacerations for Yon Mast re in tuber was lacerated and wounded fearfully in the crucifixion coming up without one what docs that make me think that the grave will get nothing of us except nor von mis and Imp rec icons. Christ went into the grave exhausted and bloodless. A the currents of his life had poured out from ids wounds. To bad livid it life of trouble sorrow and privation nil then i died a lingering death. His entire body Long on four spikes. No invalid of 20 years suffering Ever went into the grave so Whito and ghastly and broken Down As Christ und yet Here Ceni Quot a up so rum and and robust she supposi1 him to to lie Gardener. Ahall the Side aches and Tom headaches and the Back no is and the leg aches and the heart aches we will leave where Christ Ichthis the ear will Cornu no without its heaviness the Eye a a ill Como no without its i inn ass the lungs will come no without oppressed respiration of what races we will run when we become immortal athletes of what circuits we will take when All earthly imperfections subtracted and nil celestial velocities added we shall set up on residence in hint City which though vaster than ail the cities of this world shall never have one Obs any standing this morning round the shattered no Rory of our lord s Tomb i Point you to a world without Hearse without muffled drum without tumulus without cat Falque and without a tear.

That is the common Spring complaint. You feel a ology a Dull. Your appetite is poor. Nothing tastes Good. You Don t sleep Well. Work drags. You Cross every Bridge before you come to it.

A Chicago shirt. That portion of Chicago s population which is particular about the Way it dresses Aud is such a portion whatever the jealous residents of other towns May pretend to think is just now in astute of intense hut pleasurable excitement. This emotion results from the fact Bluit in one of that City a most fashionable stores there Luis been placed on Sale u full Liue of shirts so constructed us to be exactly Liat the elegant youth of Chicago have Long demanded in vain. It is a shirt planned of wholly new principles and tie inventor claim9 for it the Merit of preserving an appearance of for an almost indefinite period other shirts must to sent to tie laundry every few Mouths but this one is subject to to Scult necessity Anil thu consequent Economy in Money and Trubio will be almost beyond tie Power of figures to express. The greater part of the new garment is much Liko similar sections of its prod i a censors. It is upon the exposed front that Chicago a Benefactor bus expended All tie Power of his Genius. Indeed it is simply a front that hns produced and yet it is by to menus a a Dicky Quot for which demands admiration and patronage. The Quot Dicky has been tried in Chicago and found wanting. The new device is a disk of stiff Linen revolving on a Gold stud and divided into four v shaped segments of equal size and different colors. Each segment is Large enough to More than fill the space left open by n reasonably Hiigli Waistcoat and is therefore a shirt for All practical purposes us practical purposes in die Liitt line Are understood in Chicago. When tie Quarter of the disk has served the purpose of Beauty Aud Protection to the Arery a satisfaction All lie hns to do is to turn tie next Quarter into View Aud behold lie is started a Mew on social rounds Aud can fact Trio Worril with Confidence of his Power to undergo severest scrutiny.

Local papers say that the enterprising Hunters near the Boundary Lino Bavo a Way of taking advantage of both the Maine and Tho new Hampshire Laws Aud so get double Bounty upon every Bear they kill.

Tie demand Luff or in proportion than to into of opem Singer. A somewhat novel object was proposed not Long ago for the Mutual musical protective Union commonly known As Trio musical Union and the new Brandi of the organization s work promised to develop very interesting code que Cucus. A composer who was also an instrumentalist wrote a comic opera that fared very Well until through some alleged extravagance on the part of thu managers the author and Tho composer failed to receive tin in re allies. The composer proposed to have the members of tie orchestra refuse to play until to bad been paid claiming that As a member of tie Union to Lead a right to Call his fellow members to Liis Protection just As lie would have Doue if had been a player in the orchestra instead of tiie composer and the director at times of the hand. The matter was settled before the composer had to use this remedy. The question involved was an entirely new one and i have been critical enough of the society to say that if the Union saw an Opportunity to exit i its Powers of interfering with people it would not fail to take adv Otago of it. When there was consider Bio talk last Winter about the Tigli prices demanded by foreign Gera singers when the Camo to this country the in it t known operation manager in new York told a Sun reporter something which is net generally known about the compensation of foreign musicians that come to this country. One hears a great Deal about the difficulties musicians have of finding regular employment and the necessity of their playing All sorts of music Aud accepting ail sorts of engagements As Well As of the other complaints which justly or unjustly Are attributed to Tho fact that new York supports no orchestra that Cun to called permanent in the real sense of Trio word that is to say an orchestra which pays its members enough to enable them to live without seeking employment in other bands. One of Tho severest complaints that the Good musicians make those for instance that play in the symphony or Tho philharmonic orchestra is that they Aro compelled after playing at a concert to go to a dance or a reception and play there until Early in the morning in order to make their incomes Large enough for tin in necessities. In Europe there Are a number of permanent orchestras claiming a Many a entire time Aud rewarding him proportionately in return. Quot the difference Between the salaries that musicians demand hero Aud what they get in Europe a said tiie impresario Quot is out of All proportion to Tho increase in the salaries paid to Siulc is. A Good musician who is satisfied to earn a go a Mouth in Europe expects $250 or 8300 Here and the majority of them get it. Our inc Are paid of the latter scale and a ridiculous increase it is Over Tho urn but that they could get for their services in Europe. But to Are compelled to pay it if we done to want a foreign Singer by cause or she charges too much we can Settle the matter by quietly engaging another. But that is not possible with a orchestra. We be got to engage the musicians on practically their own terms and for that reason we have to the salaries we do. With the guarantee of so Many performances a week and the pay they get for each particular appearance their salaries mount to a very High figure compared to thu compensation they should receive for their services. They demand far 11.01 than the singers in comp�.11-011, . 1 the really High prices go to Only the finest of the singers. Quot a new y Ork Bun. Sena for the cd Retinol Quot 100 pages fret j.
