Yom Kippur, or the Day of Atone
ment, began at ( o'clock last Sunday
evening among the faithful Jew s all over
the world, and was observed until six
o'clock on Monday evening. The day is
the celebration of the greatest and most
sacred festival in the Jewish calendar,
nnd in its observance the places of busi
ness of our Jewish merchants were closed.
A. F. Voigl, Fred. Michels, Henry
Schoell, Jonas Katz and Carl liocsiger,
of the Honesdale Skat Club, are repre
senting the local organization in the
North Kastern Skat. Congress, now hold
ing its session in Philadelphia. The con
tests, opened on Wednesday evening last,
and will close with a "conimers" and
grand reception entertainment to-night.
As the delegates from Honesdale are
among our strongest plnyers there is good
ground for the hope that they will se
cure at least, one of the valuable prizes.
Prof. Fred. L. tiraiubs, formerly of
Honesdale, now organist of the Church
of the Advent, Hirniinghaiu, Alabama,
is thus' complimented by the Advent
Herald: "It is hardly claiming too much
to say that the best music rendered in
any church in Birmingham is heard at
the Advent. Professor Orambs, though
the organist for many years loses none
of his enthusiasm for his loved employ.
As choirmaster he is painstaking, pa
tient, capableand highly esteemed, while
his musical ability and knowledge of his
art command the respect of all."
The past season was a most favor
nble one for the raising of musknielons
in Wayne county. K. Wilmot Carr, of
Prompton, has been a most successful
grower of above description of melons
for a number of years, but this season
eclipsed all previous efforts. Several
weeks ago the writer had the pleasure of
sainplingone that weighed eleven pounds,
besides numerous others since. George
EckLwho Lives just, above the, fair
grounds; John Burcher, of Honesdale,
and Treasurer Fred. Saunders, of Kasl
Honesdale, also grew generous quan
tities of them.
An encouraging start was made on
Tuesday evening toward the organization
of a choral society here under the leader
ship of L. 15. Phillips, organist, and chor
ister of the First Presbyterian church of
Scranton, and leader of the Scranton
Symphony orchestra. Mr. Phillips is a
thorough musician, who for eight years
had charge of the musical department
of Syracuso University. Honesdale is to
be congratulated on the opportunity
which lie affords our people to develop
latent musical talent. This should bo an
epoch-making winter, musically. All
who arc interested are invited to attend
the meeting next Tuesday, at 8 r. m., at
Grace church Sunday school room, when
the first rehearsal will take place.
Most people have heard of the cau
tious fellow, who, many years since, re
fused to pick up a ten dollar bill which
was lying on the sidewalk, because 'he
was obliged to allow a discount on one
he had found the week before, when he
wanted to use it. His sort are not all
dead yet if we may credit the following :
Half a dozen men passed by a fat-looking
wallet lying on the Main street side
walk, in Monongahela, on Wednesday,
each chuckling as he thought he was too
smart to be fooled. Then Krnest Mil
ward, a business man, came along, pick-
' cd it up and found it contained $237 in
bank notes. He left it with a trust com
pany, and two hours later the owner
, came and identified it and left $37 as a
reward for Milward.
"Othello" at the Lyric, on Tuesday
evening, was well patronized, but it can
not be said that the audience was an en
thusiastic one. In fact there are few
situations in Shnkspcare's tragedies cal
culated to draw forth great applause,
and "The Moor of Venice" is perhaps
the one least stimulating in that direc
tion. John Grifhth is an actor of the
old Forrest school, and the strut and rant
nnd violence which wns characteristic of
the latter's acting half n century ago does
not cnptivnUi the average audience of
to-dny. Miss Totten made a most pre
sentable Desdetnona, so far as personal
appearance aided by beautiful costumes
went, but sho wns grently disappointing
in what should have been the emotional
parts of her role. Iago, ungracious as
is the character protrnyed, was exceed
ingly well rendered by Pedro DeCordoba,
and Miss Graham, as Kmilia, his wife,
waH acceptnblo throughout nnd specinlly
strong in Iter denunciation of her bus
hnnd'fi treachery and double-dealing
witli the jenloiis Moor. For the rest it
may bo said that the piny wns well cos
tumed nnd staged, nnd (lint Manager
Dittrich is to bo commended for his evi
dent effort to please nil tastes in Ids se
lection of attractions,

of the praiseworthy work accomplished
by I iouesdale's Society for the Preven

lake heed lest they liud themselves sub

as punishments for tin-common, aijfl as
they may think, excusable offenses.
Overloading, iiisullicicut padding of har
