tlon by the council waa following
out the suggestion : made by the li
brary commission that la working
upon the consolidation plan.
The Lowly Naiarene died upon
the eroea that the way might be
pointed for the sal ration of human'
tty. Today the fulfilment of the
promise is celebrated in the service
of Easter Sunday, the promise of the
new life and the assurance that
death la not the end, rather the bo
finning. This Easter day, when the
Christian world should rejoice and
raise np its voice in praise, finds
all the great nations of the earth
plunged into warfare, such a satur-
Italia of death and destruction as has
never before marked history. But
out of it will come a day when the
atone of autocratic, self-seeking rule
will be rolled away, and a world cru
cified that a Hohenxollern might seek
glory nnto himself will be resurrect
ed for the elevation of marfklnd. To
' this end the war is a justified war,
a necessary war. Just aa the cruci-
' flxion was necessary In the scheme
of the Christian faith.

Government officials hare asked
that newspapers give out the infor

the American flag should be draped

hang a flag from a window or en

Some of. our farmers are worry
ing about the lateness of the season.
The soils are thoroughly saturated
with moisture and no doubt there
will he plenty of water for Irriga
tion. Most of the farmers are aware
that with tho soil In good condition
and that with thorough surface work
ing of the soil, It will give good
crops. If the farmer will watch his
land carefully and get It worked
down to a good seed bed, making n
mulch on top, being careful not to
lose the moisture while working it
' and plant the seed not too deep Just
aa soon as the soil Is ready, and then
I properly cultivate and care for tho
crop, I have no doubt we will be
able to get just as good a yield as
when the spring Is earlier, for the
early spring Is often followed by
some cold weather. So I would
urge upon our growers the proper
preparation of the soil before plant
