Easter Love Feast in the Home Mo
ravian Church of Winston-Salem.
Reverently we entered the old
church. The softened light sifted
through the rich stained plass of im
ported memorial windows. The sac
redness of the place hushed even the
whispers of the congregation of nine
hundred and fifty souls. Quietly, ex
pectantly, they waited, the air sweet
with the perfume of Easter lilies.
On the stroke of the clock Dean Shir
ley, Professor of Music in the College
came out from the vestry, and took
his seat at the grand organ. Imme
diately the silver tones of the bell >
rang out. And this bell is truly called
silver-toned, for when it was cast in
the year 1800, one hundred young men
each put into the metal a silver dollar.
As th^ bell ceased, the organ pealed
forth the Easter music, the choir
came in, eleven Moravian preachers
took their places in the pulpit, and the
service began. After music, song and
prayer, a number of v/hite-dressed
women with tiny white lace caps on
their hair came up the aisle, bearing
baskets containing buns. These were
followed by men carrying trays filled
with steins or mugs filled with coffee.
All of the great congregation was ser
ved. Bishop Rondthaler made an ad
dress, which made us feel the very
presenc* of God. After this there was
more music, and the service ended.
Early Easter Service.
At two o'clock A. M. the trombone
bands began playing. Four bands ag
gregating one hundred and twenty
pieces went from place to place play
ing at street corners. We left our
cormfortable beds at an early hour ?
Ion# before daylight ? and went to
the church. Already a vast throng
had gathered. The crowd waited pa
tiently, expectantly in the cold cheer
less hour before dawn, being contin
ually augmented by newcomers, un
til it numbered fifteen thousand.
At last the Bishop appeared, and
his dear old voice rang out, clear and
unshaken by age, to the farthest out
skirts tf the crowd, with the triumph
ant announcement, "The Lord is Ris
en! He is Kisen Indeed!" He pro
claimed the great fact as enthusiasti
cally as if he had just heard it for
the first time, and was overjoyed with
the privilege of imparting the blessed
news to a despairing world. Just as
his voice died away, the bands burst
out with triumphant music, and the
vast throng began their march to the
grave yard. (Never make the mis
take of calling it the cemetery.) The
bands played alternately, answering
each other. Slowly we moved down
stately Cedar Avenue. The great old
cedars which sheltered George Wash
ington when he visited Salem, still
spread protecting arms above the
'avenue. Marshals were stationed on
each side about twenty feet apart.
Above the entrances to the graveyard
are inscriptions such as, "I know that
my Redeemer Liveth;" and "I am the
resurection and the life."
As we entered the graveyard, the
beauty of the decorated graves and
rising sun made a picture that will
long be remembered. The Bishop read
the remainder of the service, and we
would scarcely have been surprised if
the graves had opened, and the dead
had come forth to the final resurec- '

WHAT WILL THE FARMERS DO!
The government has asked that the
time pieces be set forward one hour. <
This has produced some confusion in ;
the towns and cities but what will I
the farmers do about it! Somebody
said "the farmers will set their watch
es and clocks ahead one hour andthat is
all they will do about it." Really that
is about all the farmers can do. They j
work by sun time and cannot afford |
to change their hours, as town and
city people do. In the first chapter of ]
the Bible it is said "And the evening
and the morning were the first day."
Since the farmer has recognized these
two divisions of the day, he feels like
the noon hour has arrived when the
sun gets to the highest point in the
heavens. He expects to eat his dinner
at midday and not at 11 o'clock in the
morning nor in the afternoon. He
should be allowed this privilege and j
no one has a moral right to interfere
with him in his habits. In summer j
when the longest days come the sun
will set about 8:30 new time and it
would be at least half an hour later j
before he could get his supper. If
he should eat his dinner at 12 o'clock |
new time this would make nine hours j
between his dinner and supper which i
is entirely too long. It would not be j
justice to himself nor his family nor !
his stock to change his hour of eating
dinner. This would make his after din- j
ner time too long. The farmer can '
set his clock forward one hour and j
keep in mind that it is an hour too
fast. He can be loyal to his govern- j
ment by buying War Stamps and
subscribing to the Liberty Loan
and in many other ways. He can be
loyal without changing his well es
tablished habits of labor and eating.
Most farmers have left off flour to [
an extent which will show that they !
are loyal in conserving wheat. But
it is not necessary for them to
change their dinner hour nor their
work hours in order to be loyal. ? J. 1

Are you complaining be
cause "war time" means coal
shortage; less sugar in your coffee; bad
business; less money than you think
you ought to make?*
What about the boys who are
fighting for you in France?
For you? a little economy
and deprivation. For them the
trenches; the pitiless storms of rain and
sleet; the ceaseless deafening bombard
ment of the guns; hunger, cold and
fever; wounds and death.
That you may dwell in
peace, plenty, and security, they
sacrifice everything, give everything,
brave everything, and face a nameless
grave with a smile and a song.
What are you doing, or giving,
or sacrificing for them?
is your opportunity to
prove the patriotism that is
in your heart and on your lips.
Your opportunity to
show yourself worthy of
the heroism, the devotion, the
self-renunciation of your sol
diers and sailors.
Your opportunity to
share, insome small degree,
the sufferings of those who
stand ready to make the su
preme sacrifice for you.
A 11 you can do is little
enough. You simply lend
your money. Do it, and be glad
that you can do so much and
sorry you can do no more.
