Mil things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall **receive. Mathew 21:2^ Bagan origin brings our Good Friday hot-cross buns. The An* gio-Saxon savages consumed cakes as part of the jolnty that attended tneir welcome to spring. The early missionaries Irom Home despaired ol breaking tnem of the hauit, and at last biess- ed the caKes, arawing a cross upon them. Berennial spring urge is to fling the winter garment of re* pentance into the "ares of Spring" thus producing the Easter parade. Everybody wants to Diossom forth in new array. Even the ever prudent benjamin iiranKhn had a tew thriftless woius to say auout Easter apparel in Poor Richard's Almanac. "On Easter let your clothes oe new, or else be sure, you will it rue." you'll find but one world conqueror, who came with clean * hands, and those hands the soldiers pierced with iron spikes when they nailed Him to the cross. Easter clothes: when we dress in our best at Easter, we con- "cinue a practice of the earliest Christians. In the early Church, baptism was administered at Easter; the catechumens wore Spotless white robes as a sign ol tneir new lite oi grace. They commemorated this new beginning every year afterward at Easter, by wearing their very best clotnes. ft man was going down a street in Chicago when in a store ** window he saw a very beautiful picture ot the .crucifixion. As he gazed, spellbound at the vividly pictured story, he became conscious trial at his sioe stood a little street urchin. The boy, too, was gazing at the picture intently. Touching the boy on the shouluer, tne man said, "Sonny, wnat does it mean?" "That there man is Jesus," the boy answered, "an" them others is ho- man soldiers, an' the woman what's cryin' is His mother, an'," he added sorrowfully, "they killed 'im." Finally the man turned and walked down the street, in a few moments he hearu toot- steps running alter him and the little street urchin rushed up to him. "Say, mister," he exclaimed breathlessly,"! forgot to tell you, but He rose again." urgery has five classifications of wounds, says a Detroit physi- an, and Jesus was wounded in all five oi these ways: contused wounds, when they smote Him and buffeted Him; lacerated wounds, when they scourged Him; penetrating Wouhas, irom the crown of sharp tnorns; perforating wounds, when they crucified Him; inciseu wounds, irom the spear thrust in His side. The Easter egg is secular! It has remained through all the ages ' a folklore of fertility and new life. The ancients exchanged eggs at Easter time as a symool of good will. They were gilued if the givers were rich, and powenul, crimson it otherwise. E aster corresponds to the Jewish festival of the Passover. Pesach means the pasing-over of the angel of death. In France Easter is called Paques; in Italy, Pasqua; and in Spain, Pascua. The liturgical color tor Easter is white as the sign of joy, light and purity. In ecclesiastical art, the lion is one of tne many symbols of the resurrection. The egg, holding the seed of a new life is anoth er symbol. Babbits as an emblem of fertility are also associated with the Easter observance. This is a remnant of the old totemic beliefs when animals were part of the nature rituals. "In the bonds of death He lay Who for our offense was slain;. But the Lord is risen today. Christ hath brought us life again, Wherefore let us all rejoice, Singing loud, with cheerful voice, Halleluiah." Mary Neitzel engaged A JUNE WEDDING is planned by Mary Kay Neitzel, daughter of D. A.
