Many Days of Festivities are Sched
uled for the Next Few Months.
Acordlng to the Jewish ritual, the
year which began on September 12 Is
tlic 5,673d since the creation of the
world. Kosh Hashonah, the llrst day of
the new year, marks the beginning of
the long list of Jewish fast and feast
days and calendars have already been
prepared and circulated among the
Jewish people to how on which of the
English dates the principal religious
holidays will fall during the year r>,67'I,
The principal fact about the year
5,673 Is that It is a Leap Year, of
thirteen months, 384 days, *>>> Sabbaths
In this year there is an extra month,
that of 2d Adar, a month of twenty
eight days. According to the Jewish
ritual, it Is the eleventh year of the
299th lunar cycle of 19 years, and the
nlnteenth year of he 203d solar cycle
of 28 years since he creation. The
month of 2d Adar Is Interspersed pe
riodically in the year to maintain the
relation of the Jewish months, which
are strictly lunar, to the solar year.
Names of Jewish Months.
The names of the Jewish months are
naturally In Hebrew and most of them
may be found in the Bible. They be
gin with Tishri, which covers the sec
ond half of September and the first
half of October, and run as follows:
Tishri, September-October; Heshvan.
or Marchesvan, October-Novembei;
Kislev, or Chislev, November-Decem
ber; Tebeth, December-January; She
bat, January-February; 1st Adar, Feb
ruary-March; 2nd Adar, March-April;
Nlsan. April-May; lyar. May-June;
Sivan, June-July! Tamil/.. July-August,
Ah. August lone day in September this
year; i Ellul, September, one day In
October this year.I This is the com
parison for the present year, but as
it is a Leap Year, with an extra month,
the calculations would be somewhat
different for an ordinary year.
The principal holidays of the year
began with Rosh Hashonah, Now
Year's Day, on September 12. Yester
day was a minor fast, the Fast of Qe
dalla, for the asasslnation of the
leader of that name. The holiest day
of the Jewish year will come next Sat
urday, September 21, which is Yom
KIppur, tlie Holy Day. the Day of
Atonement, when all Jews are com
manded to fast the entire day and to
devote the day to prayer and devotion.
It is the day on which the Jew at
tempts propitiation and atonement for
the sins of the past year and tries to
cleanse his heart by religious devotion
The fast is of great antiquity and is
given much space In Leviticus Hi, 1 to
34; 23, 26-32; and Numbers, 27, 7-11.
It is considered the culmination of the
Jewish expllatory ceremonial, and the
Ideal expression of Israel's religion.
Feast of Tabernacles.
The Feast of Tabernacles, which oc
curs tills year on September 26, is
prescribed in many places in the Hl
ble, notably in Bxodus, Deuteronomy,
Exeglel, Leviticus and Numbers. It is
a harvest feast and Is said to have
been the greatest of the Hebrews
feasts in Hibical times. It is termed
the Feast of Ingath ring, and the
Feast of Booths and lasts eight days,
the elgth day having a ritual of its
own with the name Shminl Axereth.
The day is to celebrate the gathering
of the harvest and was originally of
a bacchanalian character. It has nev
er entirely lost its joyful character,
even though few of the seremonles
practiced in prophetic days are now
Dosing the stomach won't kill Ca
tarrh germs. Neither will sprays,
douches, snuffs, or ointments.
The quickest way to kill germs is
to breathe deep Into the lungs the va
porized air of Booth's HYOMEI.
As this antiseptic air passes over
the sore s|>ots infested with Catarrh
germs, it not only destroys them, but
heals the Inflamed membrane and
stops the discharge of mucus.
Then hawking, spitting. snuffing,
crusts in nose and foul breath will
disappear, and vile, disgustinc Catarrh
will be conquered.

GIBRALTAR NEVER IS ASLEEP
Guns of tho Great Fortress Are Kept
Trained Constantly on the
While It has always been known
that Gibraltar, which belongs to Great
Britain, Ik one of the world's strong,
est forts for both defense and offense,
It seems Incredible that an immense
fleet could be sent to the bottom be
fore getting within five miles of Gib
raltar. Not even a torpedo boat
could succeed In entering tho bay un
observed on the blackest night. The
most eminent naval experts are of
tho opinion that thlB world's greatest
fortress Is nltnoBt impregnable.
Gibraltar never sleeps. By day and
night two perfectly equipped signal
stations, proudly Haunting Britain's
flag of ownership, sweep the seas
around to a distance of 15 miles on a
clear day, Instantly reporting the com
ing and going cf each vessel.
Modern "needle" guns, the finest In
Europe, are Installed on nil the most
prominent points. They are unreach
able from the sea, even as they are In
discernible, owing to tho skill with
which they are planted and draped to
match the surrounding vegetation,
while huge screens drop automatical
ly before them as each shell Is fired.
They have a range of 15 miles and
could drop shells on Ceuta. In Africa,
opposite, quite comfortably.
One gun weighs 110 tons and 1b
capable of throwing a shell weighing
three-quarters of a ton. In that mar
vel of engineering under great dlfll
cultloB, tho galleries, are concealed
guns for every day In the year.
These galleries are divided into
three sections, entry to which Is
guarded, while one Is closed even to
high officers, containing preserved
stores, munitions of war. rain water
(for Gibraltar has no springs) and n
complete condensing plant?all calcu
lated to outlast a siege of seven
The firing Is the most mathematical'
ly perfect Imaginable. The surround
ing waters are mapped out into
squares, upon which certain guns are
kept ready trained, so that it is al
most impossible to miss.
Stumbled on Vein of Gold.
For seven pesos or about $2.55 a
poor Ohlleun bought a few weeks ago
the foundation of an old houae In
PutU near Constituclon, relates the
New York Sun. As the man grubbed
out the stones from the earth his at
tention was attracted to the yellow
specks In one of them. He found It
contained an extraordinarily large
proportion of gold. He inquired as
to whence the stones originally came
and finally traced them to a hill in
tho vicinity. There he found In the
slope a vein of gold-bearing rock,
from a small portion of which in the
course of a week's work he and a
couple of friends extracted $75.000
worth of gold. A company has now
oeen formed with a capital of $100,
000 to open up the vein and deter
mine Its true value.
Ruskln as a Grocer.
Huskln was once a grocer. In 1874
he opened a shop In Paddlngton street.
Nottlng Hill, in order, as he an
nounced, "to supply the poor with
pure tea In packets as small as they
choose to buy, without making n prof
It on the subdivision, larger orders be
ing, of course, equally acceptable from
anybody who cares to promote honest
dealing." The shop did not attract,
Ruskln complained In Fors Clavigera"
that ' the poor only like to buy their
tea where It Is brilliantly lighted and
eloquently ticketed; and as I resolute
ly refuse to compete with my neigh
boring tradesmen, either In gas or
rhetoric, the patient subdivision of
my parcels passes little recognized as
an advantage by my unealcnjatlng pub
lic." Tho shop soon closed down, and
tho grocery trade lost tho most dis
tinguished representative It Is ever
likely to possess.? I?ndon Chronicle.
WHY SHE DIDN'T WIN.

Strong for the lady.

but of course ho might have spared
himself the trouble of grumbling, and
