Once upon a Railroad schedule, there was a Railroad Standard Time.
But for other's love of war, verily I go ~ "Coal & lamp oil savings time." A call to arms. Railroad standard time was reset to move forward wartime one hour. Get a jump on the poor fellow on the fighting for opposing nations. Little "Free Press" wasted on actual savings... Little press devoted to "Peace Saving Time" or "Saving Grace Time."
Be wary of "Daylight Wasting Time." Here is an example cited in Webster's 1828 definition of "Intercede." Even worse when "Daylight Salvation Time" is interdicted by authorities. Verily I go.
