Easter Sunday this year has spe

church. Not only does it mark the
culminating triumph in the life of
our Lord which marks it as a season
sacred to all Christians, but for this
congregation this year Easter Sun
day is the date set for their return
to their own place of worship after
having worshipped with the Laurel
wood Congregational for some weeks
past, while their church was being
remodeled. Therefore, the day will be
marked by several special features.
At 945 o’clock the Sunday school will

A Whaling Voyage in the Old Days
From the Deep of the Sea is the
real diary of the adventurous voyage
of the whale ship Diana in 1866, by
Charles E. Smith.
Men and women who like a true
story of a fight put up by brave men
against imminent danger and of en
durance under the most wearing hard
ships will find much to admire in this
diary of a Quaker surgeon on a year’s
voyage in a whaler out from Hull.
Apart from its record of suffering
and peril in Arctic ice packs, when
the supply of food and fuel almost
failed, the diary is filled with Arctic
lore and characteristic incidents of
life at sea in the old whaling days,
as well as many amusing stories told
by the captain of the Diana, whose
conscience wouldn’t allow him to go
after whales on Sunday. The Mac
millan company, publishers.
