first number. Mr. Glickman gave, as
a violin number "Love Song," by
Benda. Mr. Glickman sang in a very
sweet and touching manner,' "Be

strains of "Lohengrin's Wedding
March" sounded the bride and groom
entered from the right aisle where
they were met at the altar by Rev.
Lynch, who in an impressive manner
said the marriage ceremony, during
which time Mr. Glickman, accompan

CYCLONE MACK IN
Great Revival of Religion and
Consecration Now Under
Way at Gastonia
Gastonia, May 8. —One of the
greatest revivals in the history of the
Piedmont Carolinas was that of last
Sunday afternoon, in the large tab-
ernacle at Second and South streets,
when Cyclone Mack preached on the
"Baptism of the Holy Ghost and
Fire." In his usual, characteristic
way, peculiar to him alone as an
evangelist, he had said, "We all
know what it is to be baptized with
water, which is for the outward
cleansing, but we know less and care
little concerning the baptism of the
Holy Ghost and fire. When a coin
is dirty on the surface then water
will clean it, but when the defect is
within it must go back into the fire.
When human being, church members
and sinners, are rotten with sin on
the inside they must go through the
fire of regeneration from the Holy
When the invitation was given
hosts of the people were shouting
and weeping in the old time way and!
seven or eight hundred jammed the
aisles and gave their hearts to God.
Such a\ demonstration was never be
fore witnessed in Gastonia. A great
revival of religion and "reconsecra
tion had come to this town.

AT BAPTIST CHURCH
Baptist and Methodist Choirs
Gave Program Sunday
Evening As Music
A musical service in celebration of
National music week was held at the
First Baptist church on Sunday eve
ning May 6th. The program, given
by the choirs of the Methodist and
Baptist churches, was of their usual
high order and a capacity audience
enjoyed it. The opening number,
Dawes "Melody" was played with
exquisite feeling and expression by
Mr. A. M. Glickman. Two hymns by
the congregation and both choirs
were features of the program. An
anthem, "Awakening Chorus" by
Gabriel was sung by both choirs, and
was an excellent exhibition of the
musical talent of Forest City. Mr.
Henry Giles song, "Behold I Stand
at the Door and Knock," by Holton.
Mr. Giles was accompanied by Mrs.
R. W. Minish, and he sang this beau
tiful song exceedingly well. Mr. M.
F. Moores gave a beautiful address
on music. He discussed its influence,
in the home, in the community and
in the life of the individual. He paid
a beautiful tribute to the most spirit
ual of all the arts and his address
was a fitting opening for the cele
bration of music week.
The address was followed by an
anthem, "A Prayer" by the Metho
dist choir. Mrs. Burwell Moore and
Mir. Giles sang a duet in this anthem,
that was especially good. The Bap
tist mixed quartette, Misses Meares
and Gaines and Messrs. Hughey and
Smart sang, "The Wonderful Peace
of My Savior." This was one of the
outstanding number on the program
and was greatly enjoyed by the audi
This musical program was made
possible through the combined efforts

f an unusually high order and they,
as well as the excellent choirs, de
serve much credit for its success.
