ROUGH ON WOMEN.
Miser Harris Said to be Want ing in Respect. His Habit of Making Disgusting ! Remarks About Them. ; A Man Who Disliked to Change j His Underclothes. Tbe Administrator's Suit Against Dr. j Shorb—Buessord'sJSomewhat Racy Testimony—A Peculiar I - Man. ! Some rare evidence was given in de- 1 partment four yesterday in the case of Public Administrator Field vs. Dr. A. 8. Shorb and his wife. The suit is for the recovery of about $27,001) alleged to have been obtained from Daniel J. Harris, deceased, by undue influence. i The most sensational evidence waa given by F. G. Buessord who was em- i ployed by Dr. Shorb to nurse Harris, i which position he left July 15th, 1890. He gave gome rat.y testimony concern- 1 ing the relations of Harria with the : Shorbs. When he first went to the palace Dr. Adams was the attending physician. Upon being questioned as to Harris's habits witness said: "He was the ] dirtiest man I was ever called upon to attend. His body was filthy in tbe »x- 1 treme and hjs clothing disgustingly 1 dirty. Tho bed was covered with ver min", and tbe sheets not fit to I t «een The witness thought Harris i wea minded, in fact, crazy. He would not allow himself enough to eat and talked i constantly of women in a filthy way. He frequently played on the piano and jumoed about the houee in a wild man ner.' He had fits of cursing, when he - would insist that the doctors wore keep ing him dowu in order to get his money. Buessord was asked to repeat what Harris said concerning women. In re ply he said : "I have too much respect for myself and the ladies in the court ( room to give his remarks. They were ( not fit to be repeated in the presence of . ladies, and I will not give them." J Counsel for both sides agreed that the 1 ladies could retire while the witness re- I peated what Harris was in the habit of | saying concerning women. This invita- ( tion waa accepted and about a dozen left the room. The wituess then repeated ' many of the remarks made by Harris, ( none of which were fit for publication. The old man, the witness said, never ( spoke respectfully of any woman, ex- j cepting a sister. He classed them all as thoroughly bad and unchaste. He never saw a woman pass that he did not ' make a disgusting remark about her. 1 His habits wese as filthy as was his con- 1 versation. Leaving this branch of the case, the < witness was asked questions concerning 1 the visits of Dr. and Mrs. Shorb to Har- I ris during his last illness. Upon one occasion Mrs. Shorb advised the sick man to have her husband called to at- i tend him. He wa* a good physician, i would give him proper advice, etc., etc. Harris at that time did not seem to 1 have a good opinion of Dr. Shorb. He i reviled liim, accused him of being a i quack, and when he first came to Loa : Angeles practicing without a license. < Then he went to Cincinnati, procured a < sheepskin, and returned in six weeks. The witnesa next related a circumstance ' in witnessing a deed along with Mra. i Shorb. It was for tlie sale of a piece of property up north. When the question of employing an attorney came up upon . one occasion, vi r. Holcomb's name was mentioned. Mrs. Shorb spoke up and advised Harris not to employ him, add ing: "You know, Mr. Harria, I don't like that man." The next day another lawyer was brought in. The witnesa continuing, said that for a long time previous to being stricken with paralysis in July, Harris kept a lot of valuable papers under his pillow. One day tho witness went down town and when he returned the papers were not there, but had been placed else where. When Harris became so very sick that the nurse thought he might not live, he telegraphed for B. F. Har ris, nephew of the deceaaed. The nurse thought the old man wanted him. Pre vious to thia Mra. Shorb had insisted that the sick man had no relatives. Afterward Dr. Shorb told the witness that Harris intended to shoot him for sending for the nepnew. The witness told how Harris used I swear and curse at him. Everything he did was followed up with a shower < oaths and curses. The nurse said ht told Dr. Shorb about thia and the latter replied: "Oh, you must not mind the old man; he does not know what he ia Baying." The witneaß was asked about intoxicants be ing given to Harria. Whisky in small quantities was administered, also cham pagne—about one bottle of the latter a day, along with plenty of ice. The pa tient was fond of whisky and the bottle had to be kept from him. While Dr. Adams waa in attendance intoxicants and ice were prohibited. The opposite course was the recommendation of Dr. Shorb. Upon cross-examination witness aaid that Harris made such a fuas about -changing his undergarments that a change was made with difficulty. The witness was there five weeks before he could get the sick man to remove his disgustingly dirty garments. Some time afterward the bed underwent a change, much to the diaguat of the occupant, who bewailed the heavy expense. A number of other witneasea were ex amined as to Harris's manner and hab its, and all agreed with the testimony given by Biiesiord. TEACHERS' INSTITUTE. The Proceedings at the Session Yes terday.

"This ia theduatiest city in the west," said a traveling man yesterday, aa he scooped the duat out of his eyes, and sneezed six auccessive times. "It's ab surd your trying to get tourists and in valids to come here when you don't even attempt to make things comfort able for them. Why don't you sprinkle youratreeta?

It Is a Memorial of Blowing the Shofar. A Statement of Its Features and Its Lessons. The Celebration of tbe Creation of the World—A Day or Memorial Which Haa Been Celebrated for Thousands ef Tears. [The year 5652 will be ushered in to day by religious servicea in the syna gogues and in temples of the sons of Israel scattered throughout the world. The day is termed " Yom-Haze-Koron," a day of memorial.] BY RABBI A. W. EDELMAN. Thia evening at sundown all Israelites throughout tho world (with but very few exceptions) will assemble in their various abrines to celebrate tbe year 5(152 from the (assumed) creation of the world. The recurrence of the annual festival with which the Hebrew race celebrates the advent of the new year is termed "Yom-Haze-Koron," a day of memorial, a time t.> reflect ou the events of the past year, and reaolve to make the future more worthy of his better self. It is more than a mere private holi day, for opening new books and starting upon a new business. It is more than an almanac festival. It is even more than a religious festival. It is a histor ical occasion, and founded on Biblical authority. "In the seventh month, in the firßt day of the month, ye ehall have a Sabbath, a memorial of blowing the shofar." Leviticua xxiii, 24. It i» a day of memorial, which is ob served in every quarter of the globe by hia brethren, aa his brethren have cele brated it for thousands of years. But what ia a memorial ? It ia some thing which shall cause ua to think, tiiat ehall make ua cry halt on our jour ney and aak ourselves whither we are bounding, or whither we are swifting? Memoiy tella us that we are on the thn-ahold of a new year, and before bid ding farewell to the paat forever, we should look back and review the past: to note whether in the past we have done our duty to God, to our neighbor, and to ourselves. Oh, blessed gift of memory, by means of it we bind the sheaves which we gar ner from the harvest of life, with it we carve again tbe lines which truth would impress upon üb, with it we rekindle the Binoldering fires of goodneas, piety and virtue. Other creeds have their new year to commence in midwinter. But our great legislator, Moses, has wisely established ours in autumn. Then the harvest is gathered ; then we ccc what the crops have been, and then we see the fruits of all our labor. If it is successful we learn how to become more so in the future, but if we have failed, we learn that great lesson which one can ouly learn from a failure. It ie for that reason that we hold this solemn convocation, having laid aside all thoughts of the world and its busi ness, we take account of our r ast. How many have ever realized how rapidly their Uvea are gliding away? How many really feel that the longest life is but today? How many use their time properly? It is the purpose of thia sol emn day that such thoughts as these should occupy our time, otherwise the day i 8 of no earthly value. We should ask ourselves, what good have we done for ourselves individually, or for others in general. What have we done for our religion, for Israel, or for God? And the answer will be: Yes, we have had abundant pleasure, but we have become indifferent to the stern call of duty and of religion. Many and many a chance of doing good ■ have we neglected, many and many an unkind word have we spoken, many an unfeeling action have we per formed, and now the voice of the past, which is gone, never, never to return, speaks to us, and urges us all to change before it ia too late. To aonie my w°rda may perhapa be the summons which the prophet Jere miah spoke to Hananiah: "This year shall ye die." Are you ready? Are your books in order? Are all your debts paid ? Can you stand before the great judgment seat of your own conscience and say, I have honestly and faithfully endeavored to do my duty ? The Talmud says: "Man is born with his hands clenched; he dies with hia handa wide open. Entering life he desires to grasp everything; leaving the world, all which he possessed has slipped away from him." Even as a fox, so is man. "A sleek and well-fed fox, who waa fond of good thinga, espied one day some very juicy grapes in a vineyard. ' He longed and lusted to taste this beautiful fruit, but to his great dismay, he found the vineyard too well hedged in and enclosed to enable him to enter. "He searched hard all around the vine yard to find an entrance, and was just sorrowfully preparing to depart and forego his "delicious treat when suddenly he found a little hole left open in the fence. He tried hard with all his might and power to creep through it, but in vain; the hole was too small for hia capacious body. His greedy disposi tion, however, would not allow him to depart, so he resolved upon reducing his corpulence by fasting, in the hope that when he had become quite thin he would be able to squeeze himself through the narrow aperture. And he was not doomed to disappointment, for, after fasting many days and nights he found himself sufficiently thin to get through the fence into the vineyard. He sees the delicious fruit before him —his appetite is excellent, He taates, 1 he eats and revels in the delicacy to his heart's content. "What an excellent and capital idea this was of mine," he says within his heart, with self-sufli cient pride and satisfaction. "Such a grand idea could only enter a head like mine." And bo he' continued eating and eating ravenously, till—for there must be an end to all things—he was satisfied ; and he began to think it was tine for him to return. But, alas! he cannot go home, for how can he squeeze himself through that very small hole by which he had entered? No. He had grown far too fat for such a little opening. The hole was Urge enough for a lean fox, but not half :»rge enough for a fox that is full of grapes. No course remained open to him but to reduce his siae, and to become again tbe same lean and thin fox. And when at last he issued forth from the hole, through whi*m he had entered with such glee and inward satisfaction, O, how de jected was he! how crestfallen fie looked I and how wretched were his feelings! "O, Vineyard!" cries he, "thou art indeed fair to look upon, thon art very sweet to tbe taste; but how vain, and how un profitable art thou 1" Such, 0, man, will be your lot; snch will be your fate, if yon only seek after and value earthly things. No matter how much wealth yon will hoard up, you must not forget that on parting this world that you must leave it all behind you. For naked dfdst thou come into this world and naked must thou return. ■ There ie, however, one thing which we can carry with us, and that is, if we have added one single jot to the sum to tal of human happiness, this we can take with us, for this will bear ns into life that is eternal. To many it may seem as if these words were sad matters to speak of, but the occasion demands earnest words. The day of memorial is not a day of en tertainment nor 'of amusement, but to think and reflect. It is a day to make you all feel that life is earnest. That the weight of care has pressed heavily upon some of us; "death hath come up through our windows aud entered into our houses." Many have been taken from us, the old and the young, the robust and vigorous no less than tbe infirm and weakly, and yet, here are we alive this day; and although wedo miss with heart pangs mauy a loved one, yet shallj we not be grateful for so many that are slill spared to us? If the new year suggested nothing more than this lesson in the line of spiritual thought, it would surely be sufficient to justify its being regaided not only aa the day of memories, but also as the day of self judgment. Let the New Year, with its old-time and yet ever fragrant memories, stimu late in us a keener sense of responsibil ity and obligation. Let is incite the appropriate idea that duty honestly performed is the best memorial we can preserve, the beat form of gratitude we can exhibit. Let it suggest the ques tion, what are we doing for the happi ness and welfare of our fellow-creatures? There is plenty and abundant room for work, and right within reach. Standing before all mankind as the house of Is rael, let us reach up to the high and noble demands of Judaism by laboring not only for Israel, but for humanity, and so promoting the spiritual and ma terial needs which surround us, that "all the ends of the earth shall see the salvation of God." Let us welcome the New Year with such feelings; let us enter into it with the firm desire to lead a new life in the coming year. Then will the Lord send Hie blessing to all of yon. He will vouchsafe His grace upon our beloved country, her guardians and her institu tions, and extend His divine favor and pardon to all mankind. THE CITY'S HEALTH.
