M.MW Carbondale—"Athens of Egypt.' VOLUME 17 CARBONDALE, ILLINOIS, SATURDAY, .APRIL. 3, -1920 ,.-'._.... .NUMBER'H4 "HOLY WEEK""!N "JERUSALEM Particularly Impressive Are the Easter Services in the Church of the Holy Scpulcher. An interesting .account ot Holy Week in Jerusalem was written some years ago by Robert Elch- ens, author of "The Garden of Allah," for the Century Magazine. He described the ceremonies ill the Church of tlie Holy Sepulcher. "My first impression in the church," tie says, "was that I had suddenly come into a barbaric castle of magic connected ,-with. innumerable caves of Aladdin. 'About mo were caves lined with silver and .gold and immense Jewels unknown to me; caves across which miraculous spiders had spun webs of silver and gold. Stars gleamed in them; footsteps echoed, voices munnure(}, eery lights twinkled. Marvelous fabrics shone softly among great pictures, carved wood, marble, bronzes and gilded ironwork." And In the courtyard—"a roar of voices went up. The pavement echoed with the ceaseless tramping of feet and the grounding of muskets. The. walls flung back exclamations and cries; tlie whining and shrieking of beggars, the loud calling of sellers 'determined to compel attention to their wares, the vehement discussions < f those that bought, and—I had al- said tlie silence of the liussian > I ,-,f Eastertide, 1918., "J saw many things. „ . I saw a man in France—a soldier—full kilted—full weary, htimpijar* his leaden pack.

He describes the "Miracle of tlie Holy Fire"—the church packed with thousands eager to light their candles •at the fire sent down .from heaven once a year, according to the teachings of the Greek church; to the priests within the marble sanctuary, which Is supposed to mark the sepulcher. "And then,,after the wonderful midnight mass on the eve of Easter . . . caaie the Easter morning ceremony in the court of the Holy Sepulcher. Ah, •how gentle, how tender, how touching Ht was, that simple (greeting of the •wonderful morning after the delirium and frenzy of the holy fire. All hearts rwere excited to freiizy by the boly^ fire. The Easter morning procession moved hundreds to tears, held them tensely silent. Instead of the blue dome spangled with artificial stars, a faint blue sky was over our heads. Instead of the glare of the torches the sunbeams fell mildly upon •us. Instead of the -yelling multitudes we heard the sound of the wonderful bells—bells never to be forgotten. They Bounded like strange, emotional voices of livln.g things, proclaiming a great, a superb truth. Down below .me I saw tears streaming over the seamed faces of many Russians as they signed themselves, kissed one another, told one another, 'Christ is risen.'"

The-good clothes parade that crowds him out of his usual seat has no apical for him. He Is concerned with worship. He. comes to the sacred meeting to contemplate the greatest or earth's miracles. There is much about it reason cannot compass. Every failure to solve the mystery drives him back to the faith that has never failed to bring comfort when cold reason suggested only perplexity. When tempted to doubt he remembers that a critical nation with antagonistic leaders tried to^ hush up the story when it was flrst reported. He remembers rhe dismal failure they made of it. Though contrary to all experience and knowledge great things have been brought to pass by faith in this miracle. Is it any wonder he sits in meditation and worships? Three Shot by Bandits•: Louisville, Ky., April x\—Three diners were shot, one probably fatally, when .three bandits were resisted in nn attempt to hold up eight men in a restaurant here. SING GLADNESS AND PRAISE Carols Have a Distinct and Beautiful Meaning When Rendered at the | Easter Time. j It seems-as if the East- -ertide was a particularly appropriate time for the enroling out ot-our joy. The spring has come, the birds are singing again after the long winter of ice and snow, and \ve mortals wake to joy again with them. Let us see how the people of ancient times observed Easter. "Carol," the word which we use in' speniting of Enster music, means a song of ..praise, • between- a hymn and a ballad, a song,which was •used first to accompany a dance. One ot the most beautiful of these old enrols had its origin in the southwestern part of France, and is called "The Carol of the'Flowers." It runs thus: Come -with us, Bweet flowers, and worship Christ tha Lord; Let your perfume hover round tha Babo adored. Modest violet, hiding In the grassy Thou canst say how humble He is made. LJly fair; low bending in the sun's warm light, Thou dost tell that He is pure as thou are white. (. As thou, pansy, shinest forth in bright array, So doth He his majesty, dUplay. As thou, rose, wide opening,' do thy scent impart, So His love expanding:, draws each sinful Heart Easter time seemed especially the season that the ancient people were moved" to compose folk songs, which were not written down as ciustc is HEW YORK OUST FIVE SOCIALISTS There's tha bonny Scotsman's' bonnet That he -wears with greatest pride, With a Jaunty silver thistle Fastened gaily at the aide.

In ancient times the Saxons were worshipers of the heathen goddess Eos-- tre whose'festival fell in the spring; The feast of the Resurrection falling in Use" spring, also, the flame was transformed to thi? Christian feast ; which, in the Saxon'church, was re- : garfled as.the queen ;of festivals. It was termed the Day of Light'., and from midnight of Easier, eve until daylight the churches were brilliantly il; luminated and decorated. On Easter i morning the people 'flocked to .the 1 elaborate service, and- especially to witness the symbolic resurrection from the sepulcher. This was repre- sented'by the. priest's glevatlng in full view'' of the'people" file* -supposed' body"of the risen .Christ. In connection with the celebration In the churches the people Indulged in feasting and rejoicing in their own homes. This • was but a natural reaction from the rigorous fast of Lent imposed by the church, during which written now, but which were sung, from generation to generation of people. In this way they were kept alive, as surely as If they had been printed, or written on parchment, according to the custom in ancient days. These folk songs depicted scenes In the garden of Gethsemane where the Saviour walked, or of the women who went to the tomb bearing precious spices, of their finding the empty tomb, of the white-robed angel,- and of Mary, the virgin mother. ' One of the most beautiful of all the songs -which have been written of this event Is Handel's "I Know That My Redeemer Llveth." ' This ' has been sung on Easter for many years, in churches. Awake to Spirit of feaster. It Is the tragedy of many a Ifrfe that it weeps at an empty tomb. It thinks that there all its hopes are buried, ail Its possibilities of joy, all its future. How empty and joyless is the life that I has not met the risen Christ!. On the first Easter evening two disciples were walking down to Emaus. Their hearts were sad, their lives were hopeless be- j cause they haC lost their Lord, and ; they had no faith in certain rumors of a resurrection which had'come to their ears. Jesus Joined them on the way, but j their, eyes were holden so they knew him not. May the Spirit open our hearts and eyes on Easter day to the glory and Joy of the Risen Lord.—Exchange. Oldest Christian Festival. ! Easter is the oldest festival of the i Christian church. The celebration of it is really. continued from Sunday to I Sunday, and will be till 'at -last, the ' dawn of the Eternal Sabbath breaks, and the everlasting Enster morning shall rise on a new heaven and a new earth. The Resurrection was an announcement of the greatest victory which has ever been won, a victory over bondage and over death. Many victories have been celebrated since, but none can compare with this; though roany have been the result of It. Senator Knox Seriously III. Washington, April '4— rSenator Philander C.

He is suffering from a severe attack «>f laryngitis and his condition is said to. be serious. no meat whatever was eaten and on Good Friday no food at all was permitted. x The custom of using eggs is supposed to have originated with the ancient Greeks and Homans, who colored them to use in their pagan festival. Marvelous stories may be found of bewitched eggs, said to bo- able to fly straight toward the sui.,. mid one famous variety was said to have been laid by a rabbit. The story of the origin of the Easter egg seems to be a mixture of the Christian and Pagan, legend, and is as follows: "There.fell from the heavens, long, long ago, an-egg of immense sine; it rested on the Euphrates, when a dovu descended and.hatched it, and out of H arcsR a splendid beauty of Venus/ 1 .
