Ardent beer drinkers of Malvern who have been calling lustily for their brew these many months continued to slake their thirst with Adam's ale and no suds appeared in town until Wednesday. Town Clerk -Woodford B. Byington, at various times reported to be beselged by a doten or more frentted license seekers, had granted only one by Wednesday afternoon. This went to Lee Bingaman who early Wednesday made application, obtained state* menta showing he was of good moral character and, that his property conformed-to all laws, plunked down tbe f 100 license fee, obtained a |>,000 bond. Clerk Bylngton hastily summoned the council who, since all legal requirements were fulfilled, granted the license.

Reason for the resignation was that Mr. Bosenfeld had accepted a similar position in Shelby county and that he expected to take up his new work there in Harlan on May 1. Genuinely sorry to lose so good an agent the Mills Bureau board accepted the resignation, considered new applicants for the post* tion and hired one Bruce Ktlpat- rick, 28 year old farmer who livea near Harlan. Mr. Kilpatrick was graduated from Iowa State college last June, has farmed since then.

But that w«* the last for the old horse; tof a day or so later he died. Sot, Fred says he had the honor df distinction, or whatever you may want to call it, of having driven the old horse hi* first and his last drive, and h* lived to a good old age.

Before the tomb in Joseph's garden three guards, sent by Pilate, were left to guard Christ's body. As they slept the stone was rolled away and, awakened by a great light, tbe guards fled. As Mary Magdalene came to the tomb the following morning she found the tomb open and the body gone. Angels appeared and told of the resurrection. Later Salome, Mary of Bethany and Joanna came to the tomb and learned of the resurrection and then Peter and John. During the pageant vocal solos wero rendered by Edna Hertz, Margaret Berkhlmer, and Vernon Bobbitt and a duet by Mlaa Berkhimer and Ruth Donner. Mrs. George Hilton furnished violin obligates for solos and played the offertory. Harry Hilton served as trumpeter and with Mrs. Hilton played a violin, trumpet duet for the prelude.
