THE SUCCOTH CARPENTER. by in is An Odd Character of the Jewinh Quar ter in Great Ci tie«. The oddest industry In the metropo lis Is that of a succoth carpenter, who finds employment one week of the year In the Ghetto among the orthodox Jews. His work is done in the fort night which precedes the Feast of the Tabernacles and consists in building odd little booths known ns succoths in the back yards of the tenement-houses. The feast of the tabernacles- Is sup posed to commemorate the time during which the children of Israel wnuidered in the wilderness, and probably also their sojourn in the land of Egypt. During this period they lived more or less in the open, which fact is symbol ized by the booth having no roof, or else a covering of evergreens and bul rushes. According to another school, the booths represent the time when tue Israelites came in such numbers that they were unable to get into the temple, and so built temporary shelters around the sacred edilice. The succoth should be boxlike in shape, not less than six feet In height, six feet long, and four feet wide. It should be made of the cheapest and flimsiest building material to indicate what it represents. Some of the build ers take pride In making the structures as ramshackle as possible. Others use the poorest materials, but saw and tit them with so much skill that the fin ished succoth Is neat and attractive. There is but little commercial element in the Industry. The employer sup plies the wood or the builder sells it to him at cost, while for the work of setting it up his price Is nearly always 50 cents. Charitable Hebrews will often employ two or three builders and pay each the same as the rest. Here during the festival week the family takes its meals and assembles every day for prayer. It is not at all unpleasant In fair weather, but when, ns aften happens, it rains, the situation is decidedly uncomfortable. On a rainy day symbolism vanishes, ns rain is practically unknown in the stony des ert where the Israelites wandered ages ago. Still more suggestive Is the way in which the prayers are said. Instead of kneeling or of clasping the hands, the one who prays holds a fruit, usu ally a pomegranate, In one hand and a bulrush or water reed in the other. At the end of the prayer each of these is shaken twice and then handed over to the next member of the family. The water reeds are supposed to commemo rate the finding of Moses in the bul rushes, and the fruit the promise of the Loi-d to give them a land flowing with milk and honey.—New York Evening Dost. TEXAS SUITABLE FOR DATES Opinion of a Syrian on the Growth of the Palm in America. According to views entertained by Josef Hahmet, n Syrian who has set tled near Waco, the northwestern counties of Texas are exactly suited in all respects for the production of the. date palm and would afford settlers of that portion of the Lone Star State an unfailing source of revenue, writes the Dallas News. Mr. Hahmet said: "The date paint should be grown far enough from the ocean to Insure It from humid breezes and give it hot, dry summers for the ripening of Its fruit. It wants plenty of water, however, and no country is better supplied with water underneath and sunshine overhead than the west ern and northwestern portion of Tex It would not be new to the Uni as. ted States, for Arizona and California are producing dates successfully. In New Mexico date palm offshoots w T ere planted this year extensively. So far as I am able to learn no one, other than florists, have Introduced that val uable plant Into this State, so that he who attempts it here will earn the credit of adding another crop to the productions of his State. "Once established, a date palm or chard lasts for centuries, and when planted where nitrogen and phosphates are abundant, provided there are water and hot sun, an abundant yield is certain. Water can be obtained In any of the counties west and north west of Cisco at depths varying from thirty-five to fifty feet. The soli is re tentive and embankments are all that are needed for reservoirs, with just enough excavation to get the material for the embankments. One average tree should yield 200 pounds of fruit annually after attaining an age of eight years. High grade trees will ex ceed the average given perhaps 100 per cent. The best palm orchards are planted forty feet between the rows and thirty-five feet apart: any other fruit or any crop can lie sucwssfnll grown between the palm trees. One I acre of date palms, together with other I crops that can be grown on the same ■ space at the same time, will support n ; f am iiy. in Africa and In Asia date palms occupy pasture lands and are not hurt .by the cattle, sheep or cam els. After a date palm orchard is es tablished It Is hard to injure it by any process. Date palm trees are beauti ful, and they Improve the health of those who reside near them." y The average man loses his nerve just when he needs it most. Trade Report. Dun & Co.'s vYeekiy Review of Trade says: Interruptions of industrial progress the holiday, labor conflicts and in clement weather again produced a somewhat unsatisfactory trade situa tion. Yet the money market is easy and accommodation readily obtained legitimate business channels. Lia bilities of mercantile failures are com paratively small, indicating that most concerns have prepared for a quiet season and are able to withstand a period of diminished sales and tardy payments. This conservative attitude the fundamentally strong feature of the situation, and when business re vives there will be no pressure to dis pose of heavy stocks of undesirable goods. More manufacturing plants have reduced hours or wages, and sev eral strikes have added to the army of unemployed.
