The. Sunday school teachers and scholars took charge of the service, and after the manner in which the programme was carried out, it is to be hoped that such services will bo hold more frequently. ' The Girls' club gave lite church a thorough cleaning on Friday and took particular care that everything would contribute to the enjoyment of the service. The programme itself was varied and interesting. The children vied with each other in doing their parts, and though tlio applause was omitted, (heir efforts were none the less appreciated. Others who assisted wore Mrs. Roberts who saiifj with feeling Matheson's beautiful gem "() Love That Will Not. Let Me Go." Miss Crandall, assisted by Mrs. Mice recited in fine style an old but touching piece entitled "The Last Hymn." A quartette by Mr. and Mrs. Klee, Mr. Uoxter and Mrs. Henthorshaw brought a beautiful service to a close. Great credit is due Mrs. Rice, Mrs. 1-lonthorshaw and Miss Sutherland for training the children. > SP.

The joy of home-coming was marred when he learned in Leth-brldge for the first time that his wife had passed away. Letters were sent to England but owing to the unsettled conditions he never received them. The sympathy of the whole community goes out to our esteemed townsman. Mr. and Mrs. .Toliffe have returned to the district to engage in 'farming. We welcome them, and trust their stay will be a long one. Easter Services Sermons in the church on Sunday were. In keeping with the day. Appropriate hymns were sung. In the sermon, which was on the resurrection of Jesus, emphasis waji laid on the point that though it was a fact of two thousand years ago, it was also a groat spiritual experience. The ] subject tor next Sunday will be. "Is j the end of age near?" Those inter-1 csted in such questions would do well to be present. The church is your own church; enter and be at peace.
