Palm Sunday was observed with elab

Mark's Episcopal Church yesterday.
Bishop Walter T. Sumner was present
at the 11 o'clock, service. He presided
at the blessing and distribution of the
palms and preached the sermon. The
rector. Rev. J. E. H. Simpson, read the
lessons. A choir of men and boys ren

BishoD Sumner painted a vivid word
nicture of the procession of the tri

his congregation to go with him as a
part of the procession.
"Is it nothing to you, ye who pass
by? Behold and see if there Be any
sorrow like unto my sorrow." This was
the text from which the bishop spoke.
He said: "Possibly we are a part of
the great procession that we may
catch a glimpse of the man of Galilee.
Possibly we are here through remorse;
nerhaps through curiosity: perhaps be

"Understand me. I do not know

humor? I'm uncertain. I doubt
if, in the ordinary sense of the
word, humor is a natural product
of the Jewish race."
So says Harry First, who plays
Perlmutter in "Potash and Perl
mutter," soon at the Heilig Thea
ter. "And yet the Jews are 'really
the most humorous people the
world has ever known. There is
a curious bent in the mind of
every Jew which gives a twist
of its own to everything, and he
is at once so shrewd and so sim
ple, so serious and so hopeful, so
cautious and yet eo daring, so
suspicious and yet so trustful, so
desirous to be honest and yet so
human, he cannot but be a hu

unconscious. But when it comes

the Jew leads easily."

Sermon Thoughts From
Portland Churches.
ETWEEN attending special Holy
Week services and paying neces
sary visits to the dressmaker and
milliner, the maids and matrons of
smart society will have little time for
entertaining until after Easter. A few
informal affairs are planned and some
interesting lectures are to be given,
but teas, bridge and dancing will not
be much in vogue this week.
Among the sub-dobutantes and
younger college folk some small par
ties are heralded, but on .account of
the season these will not be at all elab
orate. Matinee parties and luncheons
will afford the principal entertainment
of the young people.

cuiiering xor otners Is as old as
human history." said Dr. Moses, "and
It is everywhere evident in human ex
penence. It is made necessary -by sin;
the losses occasioned by sin and the
need of salvation from sin.
The Bible is full of these three
things, and full of examples of men
who experience them. Sin, sacrifice,
substitution, through suffering, unto
salvation are elemental axioms in hu
man experience. One sins, another
pays the penalty of that sin through
sacrificial suffering.
"Suffering must he voluntary: sub
stitution must be for salvation and sac
rifice must be prompted by love.
"Jesus, speaking of his own sacrifi
cial, substitutionary death on the cross,
said. The hour is come that the Son
of Man must be glorified.' He stated
the law that led him to Calvary in
these words; 'Verily, verily I say unto
you, except a corn of wheat faH into
the ground and die, it abidcth alone;
but if it die it bringeth forth much
frulr.' v
'The life with no cross is selfish and
lonely. The life that, at a Gethsemane,
suffers and dies, brings forth fruit unto
life eternal."

that followed cried, saying. "HoEannt to the

"Just as Christ came to people In
those far-off days, he is coming to us
now. If we rise to accept him we may
have a beginning of a new era in our
lives." was the conclusion reached by
Rev. J. M. Skinner, pastor of the Rose
City Park Presbyterian Church, in his
Palm Sunday sermon yesterday morn
ing, when he spoke on "The Triumphal
Entry." Dr. Skinner said:
"On Passion Sunday Christ announced
to his disciples the necessity of his I
death. From that date onward the
events in his career seem to converge
toward the tragedy of the cross. But
before that hour should finally come he
-was to be the center of a last out
break of popular enthusiasm. He
cpent his last Sabbath in the quiet of
the home of Martha and Mary at
Bethany, and with the dawn of Sunday
was on the road to his passion hour.

bride was given away by her father,
C. F. Hendricksen. Miss Bertha

The sixth anniversary of the break
ing ground for the new building for
the First Universalist Church, at the
southeast corner of East Twenty-fourth
and Broadway streets, was observed
yesterday morning at the church, and
Rev. James D. Corby, the pastor, re
viewed what had been accomplished
since the work was started. He pre
faced his sermon at the morning serv
ice with a statement of the attitude of
the Universalist Church toward Christ,
which he declared w "putting his
spirit into your life."
"Six years age a few here today were i
present at ine 'im chuil-h win; cwiai
on East Eighth tnd East Couch streets.
said Rev. Mr. Corby, "and alter we had
met we came out here in the rain and
broke the ground for this church, which
was to be a community church, a church
for the whole people, for the rich and
poor, the high and low. And you will
remember that matchless address by
Rev. W. H. McGlauflin under the trees
that thrilled our souls and filled our
minds. Tou will remember that H. W.
Scott, then editor of The Oregonian,
now gone from among us, said that this
address was in accord with the true
spirit of Christianity and humanity.
Accomplishments Are Told.
"Since that 'time we may well ask.
What have we done? You have sup
ported the services and through your
co-operation made it possible for the
pastor to do his work among you. The
children and young people have been,
coming here and receiving inspiration
for character-building. It may be that
they have been taught no dogmas, but
they have been taught love to God and
humanity. Through this church and its
life the standard of life has been made
a little higher and life better.
'Hundreds have been coming to this
church for help, and they have received
it without price. Week after week the
sick, the distressed have been coming
here for help through the past six years
and have received it. A steady stream
of people have come to the open door
of this church and been received and
helped.' We have given what we had
to give, sometimes not money, for we
had little, but comfort and cheer and
encouragement that have enabled them
to take up the duties of life with new
hope und energy. Some have received
our assistance silently without words
of appreciation, which makes one sad;
not that we wanted pay or thanks, but
appreciation would have been encourag
ing to the pastor and people of this
church. Many have received our help
in this community, and have done noth
ing to help this church in its mission
to serve humanity.
Ability to Help Pleases.
"Jesus Christ did not come on earth
for thanks and praises, and so we are
glad today that we have been able to
help humanity even though some have
not shown appreciation, but it would
have been so much better for those we
have helped had they shown apprecia
tion. And hence in closing I want to
thank the teachers, the members and
the trustees and all others who have
helped to make this church an open
door of hope to this community and to
tins worm.
Rev. Mr. Corby also outlined what he
referred to as the platform of the First
Universalist Church. It is a church that
gives a new thought of God and man;
that is open day and night and has lnt
the, keys to all its doors, he said. "It
is an open door of hope to the com
munity, to the down and out, the dis
tressed, the needy," he asserted: "a
church that fights man's inhumanity to

Thought She Was Going

Vinol Helped Her.
Norfolk, Va. My health was very
poor. I suffered from nervousness, had
no appetite and was so thin. I thought
I was going into a decline, and nothing
I took seemed to help me until one day
friend came into my office and told
me if I would take Vinol it would do
me lots of good.
"I have now taken six bottles and
have gained fifteen pounds: have
good appetite and can eat anything. It
is wonderful what Vinol has done for
me in building up my health. My own
friends hardly know me and when
anyone comes Into my office the first
thing I begin to talk about is Vinol."
MATTIE DENNING, Norfolk, Va.
The testimonial letters which we are
continually publishing prove the value
of Vinol. our delicious cod liver and
iron tonic, and what it did for Miss
Denning it will do for any thin, tired,
nervous, run-down, worn-out man or
woman.
If we can induce you to try a

is all we claim, we will return your
