ASTER in the Holy Land
is the most impressive
occasion of the year, for
thither throng pilgrims
from all parts of the
Christian world, deeply
reverent with the spirit
of the season. In Jeru-
salem they follow in the
footsteps of Jesus on his
march to the cross, and
the procession that
leaves the Church of the Holy Sepul-
cher,'bearing a huge cross, and makes
Its way along the Via Dolorosa, offer-
ing supplications at the stations of
the cross, is a spectacle that never
grows dim in the memory.
Here, in the setting of the most pro-
found tragedy in the history of the
world, is incarnated the eternal spirit
that had its expression 2,000 years
ago, defying time and death and
sweetening the world with tenderness
and love. Incense from fire and the
incense of prayer rise along the way,
and hearts are hymned to tears, while
the stolid Moslem looks on with im-
Next to a pilgrimage to Jerusalem,
the bathing^ in the river Jordan is one
of tie precious experiences of the
peasants from Russia, Greece, Bul-
garia, Turkey and other countries.
Thousands joiyney to this holy stream
to bathe, that they may be washed
clean of their sins. And in tlye joy
of the cleansing, those who are com-
pelled to remain at home are not for-
gotten. So every pilgrim fills a bottle
with the sacred water to be taken
back on the tedious journey.
These reverent people even go to
the extent of taking home branches
and shrubs growing along the banks
of the river. But one of the most
picturesque sights is the carrying
away of sacred fire from the Church
of the Holy Sepulcher.
The pilgrims light their candles at
IN THE SEASON OF REBIRTH
Mankind Can See in Nature Awaken-
ing an Appeal to His Spiritual
Between the penitential season of
the religious year, which Ash Wednes-
day opens, and the weather of win-
ter's decay and of spring's renewing,
is a mysterious bond of similarity
.which enhances the meaning of the
observance. In the order of nature it
is a time of the sloughing off of the
old and the quickening of the new; of
the release of earth and streams' from
icy fetters and snow burial, and the
deep, secret stirrings of new life. And
these, if we will, are but the symbols
of what may stir and quicken in us
under the influ^ice of this season of
self-denials, both of the great things
and of the small. It is the season
which reaffirms the mystery which,
like death, no man understands until'
he has passed its portals by experi-
ence; the mystery, namely, that it vis
only by giving up that we acquire the
greatest gifts of life. We know that
the principle holds in the little things,
yet the fear of trying it in the great
things is such that comparatively few
ver bring themselves to the supreme
Dint, and they, their selves forgotten,
Proper View of Easter.
Through the fitting associations of
this festival day of nature with the
name of him who demonstrated in his
life the essential things of existence,
the soul's salvation through love and
service, the triumph of the spirit over
the flesh, we are able to regard Easter
as a day consecrated to the rebirth or
resurrection of our own nobler ele-
ments, of the divine principle in man.
If we sp view it, if we accept it as
ft day of reconsecration to the ideal of
the WayahowWs life, it should serve
/ .v •,
the shrine, and, jealously guarding the
little flame from capricious winds and
drafts, make the journey to Jaffa,
board ship, and, throughout the sea
voyage, often to the end of a rough
journey over mountains by the most
primitive means of transportation,
unceasingly guard the treasure until
they finally arrive among the expect-
ant stay-at-homes with their blessings
of fire and water. '
Pilgrims recall one Holy Week
when, in upon the peaceful spirit of
adoration, came the menace of Chris-
tian massacre—so the first alarm told
it—and in a few minutes the streets,
swarming with picturesque crowds,
were deserted, the shops and bazaars
closed. But when the garrison of the
city marched through the streets,
headed by the band to allay the fears
of the Christians, the Moslem popula-
tion turned out—not to rise against
the infidel, but just like the inhabi-
Lo! Moriing breaks! The shades of night
Melt as a scroll In burning light;
First day, creation's morn, the dawn
Of this when, ilfe anew is born,
Begotten of the parting breath,
The pangs and agony of death;
Brought forth, to human view displayed,
In resurrected flesh arrayed.
Arisen, to rise to highest height,
Beyond the gaze of mortal sight.
Great mystery divine! We bow
In solemn reverence, for now \
Knowledge and reason fail to guide]
But faith is ever on our side
To whisper hope and lift our eyes
From empty tomb to yonder skies.
spend the rest of their lives striving
to tell their truth to others who will
not believe until they, too, have
passed through at the same gate of
their own free will. Then follows the
eternal paradox—that those who have
given up their lives, with no thought
of a reward, are given back in another
form, all they have given up, and a
gr«at deal more besides, and they who
supposed that they had destroyed all
selfhood see as, through the eyes of
another, their self living and transmit-
ting its force and influence to the com-
ing generations, it may be in the
mighty legend of a great life, it may
be in the obscure usefulness of a life
of infinite consequences which the
world never hears of.
for the entombment of the dead body
of our earthly passions and desires
and its resurrection into a fairer spirit-
ual semblance, instinct with love light
Thus may the mortal reveal and
demonstrate the immortal; the mortal
put on the vestment of immortality.
True Message of Easter.
The message of Easter is that one
man among humanity's millions suc-
ceeded not only in passing through
the gate of death unharmed, but that
tants of any western city—to see the
parade go by.
Easter celebrations take on varied
aspects all ever the world, with curi-
ous customs and usages in the rural
districts and spots remote from the
great traveled highways. But it is
in the foreign cities that one often
sees the expression of the big, impres-
sively picturesque note. This is es-
pecially so of the Latin countries. In
Spain, for instance, one sees it, as
well as in Italy and In France.
But in all countries, though it is
the time of outpouring, it is largely
judged from an individual standpoint.
Easter in Vew York is different from
Easter .in Rome; and so the contrast
may be carried along between many
places. What is Easter to one man
may not at all approach what another
conceives to be the day—it may be
too destitute of form and show, or
too prodigal of it.
Fields of Lilies.
Loveliest, perhaps of all the sights
of nature are the fields of Bermuda
lilies when in bloom. The vast un-
dulating field of lilies rises and falls
like an ocean of pearly white, and a
vague, sweet perfume permeates
everywhere. Sailing and boating are
naturally among the principal pas-
times of Bermuda.
The Eas ter Hymn
all who are joined to him in spirit,
resembling him in character and pur-
pose, shall share his triumph, contin- j
uing in some other sphere a definite,
conscious existence, freed from the
limitations and downward tendencies
of the mortal body.
We may reasonably hope that some
day, through the refinement of tho
spiritual nature, man may gain posi-
tive information concerning the con-
ditions of life beyond death; but at
present i:o one knows and all specu-
lation is Iruitless.

HOW TO STOP DANDRUFF
AND LOSS OF HAIR
Here is a simple, inexpensive treat-
ment that will almost always stop
dandruff and scalp itching, and keep
the hair thick, live and lustrous: At
night, spread the hair apart and rub a
little resinol ointment into the scalp
gently, with the tip of the finger. Re-
peat this until the whole scalp has
been treated. Next morning, shampoo
thoroughly with resinol soap and hot
water. Work the creamy-resinol lather
well into the scalp. Rinse with grad-
ually cooler water, the last water be-
ing cold. Resinol ointment and resinol
soap are sold by all druggists.—A&v.
