Ther? Is to be a great parade and
masa meeting next Sunday in thls clty
of the men who are Interestecl ln thc
rellglous llfe of the community. The
students i'. the Blble classes of aU the
evangellcal churches wlll join In thls
demonstration. II I" expected that
there wlll be slx thousand men ln
Hne. and the tramp, tramp. trainp or
the ohcomlng host wlll emphaslze ln
a most impresslve way that hero upon
these cverlasting hllls the falth once

Twelve month? apo thero was .1 pa?

Nearly a thousand years ngo tlie
Chrlstlan nations of the Wesl deter?
mined upon the rescue of Palestlne
from the domlnion of the IniUlel, and,
moved by the representatlons of those
who had returned from that country,
tho rellgious zenl of Chrlstlan Europe
was klndled into a ilame and "a gen?
eral ardor was nwakened to dellver the
Bepulchre of Chrlst from the hands ol
tho infldols. In tlie mental twlllght
of tho closo of the Dark Ages, men
?were just in a state to receive a
strong rellgious excltement," and for
one reason and another, elther for an
extenslon of terrltory or tor the joys
of Paradise. or for the love of ndven
ture, great companies of Crusaders
joined in thelr efforts to rescue the
Holy Land ln the name of Chrlst. The
Bt ry ol the Crusades ls one of the
most movlng eplcs In tho hlstory of
I ? tvorld. Paleatlne is yet ln the
hands ot the unbellevers, but the work
ot the Knlghts has had a wondertul

Volumes have been wrltten about the
Crusaders and their work. llisto
rlans and poets have strlven with thls
"wonderful theino. We havo p.issed

New World of ours. \Vo do not ln
dulge, generally, in pllgrlniages to holy

There is no surprlse down ln North
Carollna that the Kalser should have
preferrod to talk to Professor Smith
rather than to conversc wlth Professor
.Miinstorburg. Says the C-reensboro
? id. whlch probably went to school

? Of course lt remained for a native
North Carollnlan to- take all the cake
and the pudding without the least ef?
fort. Dr. C. Alphonso Smith, of the
Unlverslty of Virginla. a native ot
Greensboro, now and for somo tlmo ln
<_?er: inny, had an audlence wlth the
Kaiser the other day, when that potcn
tate became so Interested In hlm that
he is quoted as 'turnlng hls back' on
tlio others ln the party. There ls
nothlng astonishlng ln the fact that
Dr. Smith 'caught hlm' at the first
shot. Tho entlre Smith family i.s given
to thls without effort. It is n habit
they have without knowlng. Had Dr.
Smith had hls banjo wlth him ho would
have routed tho whole push. leavlng the
Kalser nnd hlmself ln sole possession
of the premlses."
Thore is no music Ilke the music of
the banjo, and no life Ilke the llfe that
dances to Its music. Wc did not know
before that Dr. Smith was a vlrtuoso
on thls instrument, but we nro ready
to believe that he could make lt hum.

to vlrtually compel hlm to establish
