Yesterday wa the most solemn

Wednesday. Fo ir times and in four
different chapters of the Pentaeuch is
the commandmet t given to keep this
day of days sacred. The whole of
the 16th chapter of Leviticus is also
devoted to a minute description of
the sacrcdotal or linances. which de
manded the sacrifice of two goats,
' one of which, the scapegoat, was to
be sent away in tl e wilderness, laden
J w ith the sins an I transgressions of

I only the high priest was permitted
to enter tue sanctum sanctorum as
the intercessor for the people of
Israel, when "Jehovah would appear
in. the cloud upo:i the mercy scat."
But there is a vast difference in the
observance of the dav between the
strictly orthodox ami the reformed
Jews. The former do not touch a
morsel of food or i drop of water for
.1 hours, wear the long kittle or
white shroud in w lich they expect to
be laid to rest at death and the
fringed upper garment, and recite
all their prayers it Hebrew. On the
other hand, in the temples of the re

prevailing languag of worship: some

in the morning and evening have
taken the place of .he old ritual.

KntertKlning a Sister's Friends.
. A yonns fellow the other night rue
fully told me that he bad started the day
with sj.1 in his whit flannel iiockets,
and at lo:rto at night l ad only 70 cents tc
show for it.
"Gambling again?" I asked.
"No. sir," he repliet , with much feel
ing. "Merely been cl.ivalric. You see,
my sister invited five girl friends down
to spend a week with :ier, and I am de
tailed to help entertain. 1 took the
whole crowd bathing in the morning,
saving and fishing in t he afternoon, then
merry-go-rounds, salt water taffy, tin
types, pier, switchb; ck, creaia, soda
water, coaches, and h -aven only knows
what. Twenty-four collars and thirty
cents have just meltxl away since 10
o'clock this morning. And those girls
are h?re for a week. Got a lead pencil?"
And I left him making figures on the
woodwork of the pavil.on, trying to find
out how mnch money he would spend
on his sister's friends in a week if one
girl took a nap in the afternoon and
only left five for him to escort, or if
two girls wouldn't b.-.the in the morn
ing and one girl wan ed to walk to the
inlet while the others vanted to ride, or
if it wonld rain so 1 ard one day that
they couldn't go out, o- well, a lot it
other possible cotnbimr ions.

other day left a will containing some
queer provisions, including this one: "If
my family never settled with Mr. Foster

them to give to the boy Foster who was

SHE LOVED A HORSE.
And Showed a Teamster How He Should
Care for One.
"What are you doing to that horse?"
The spectacle of a graceful and
neatly-dressed young woman calmly
rearranging the head-gear of a wor
ried horse is apt to excite remark
even from the driver of a vegetable
"Aren't you ashamed to tie this
horse's head up so cruelly?" The
speaker was a young actress and
she stood on a Kansas City
street curb deftly adjusting the
horse's blinders and pulling a
mosquito net ovit of his eyes. Then
she loosened the check rein, while a
crowd looked on approvingly and the
horse gratefully rubbed its nose
against her shoulder. Then she pro
ceeded to give the driver some good
advice about the care of his beast.
"Well, it's my horse," he said. The
animal's released head bobbed up and
down out of pure joy, and the driver
thought strange thoughts as he
"This is a very bad town for horses,"
continued the young lady, "almost as
bad as Pittsburg. Ever since I've
been here 1 have noticed how tightly
their heads are reined up and with
what effort they ascend the steep
hills. Their poor necks seem strained
almost to bursting. It is a shame and
ought to be stopped. Yes. I have read
'Black Beauty," and I think every
teamster should have a copy."
An Enormous Kite.
The largest kite ever made in the
United States is that produced in Dur

feet long, weighing each 100 pounds,
and two cross sticks twenty-one feet
long and weighing 75 pounds each.
All the sticks were two by six inches
ic dimensions. Over the frame work
was stretched a great sheet of white
dack, twenty-five by eighteen feet,
which weighed fifty-five pounds. The
tail of the kite alone weighed fifty
pounds and contained 155 yards of
muslin. Twenty-five hundred feet of
one-half inch rope served as kite
strings. The plaything cost S100, and
when it is mounted into the air it ex
erts a lifting power of 500 pounas.
