SH0FAR IN HEBREW RITUAL
Wood Instrument Data* Back to tho
Vory Earliest Youth of th«
Hebrew historians, with a special
eye (or ear) to the rncial history, are
very proud of their shofar. They say
it Is the oldest form of wood wind In
strument in the world, that It was
used in the original Mosaic ritnal.
It Is the one muslral Instrument, says
Dr. Cyrus Adler, which has been pre
served unbrokenly In that ritual.
There Is even a theory, voiced by
Professor Stelnthnl, that the shofar
antedates the people of Israel. He
says It probably goes back to prehis
toric times. And another investiga
tor points out that It obviously came
Hrst from a folk solely dependent on
the growing of sheep.
This ancient ram's horn Instrument
was perhaps earliest used for the sig
nals of alarm wliioh were so neces
sarily common In primitive society.
The Israelites then adapted it to their
religious services, and with such fit
ting effect that It has persisted
uniquely since the beginning.
But the Talmud indicates that, even
among the Hebrews, the shofar was
also developed into a hora for giv
ing alarms. Fuhdamentally these
alarms would be Incidental to war.
Afterward, though, the Instrument was
blown in other seasons of danger or
distress. It warned of famine or of a
plague of locusts or of drought. And
It was employed In the public serv
ice of excommunication.
The children of Israel had other
horns which were used for musical
afid ritualistic purposes, but this Is
the only one which has survived.
WHAT MIR0 READ AT SCHOOL
Youngster's Initiation Into Culture
Was Made "Almost a Re
At school Miro was early impressed
with the vast dignity of the literary
works and names he was compelled to
learn. Shakespeare and Goethe and
Dante lifted their plaster heads frown
Ingly above the teacher's as they perch
ed on shelves about the room. Much
was said of the greatness of literature.
But the art of phonetics and the com
plications of grammar swamped Miro's
early school years. It was not until he
reached the high school that literature
began really to assume that saoredness
which he had heretofore felt only for
holy Scripture, Randolph Bourne writes
in Yale Review. His Initiation Into
culture was made almost a religious
mystery by the conscientious and
harassed teacher. As the "Deadwood
Boys" and "David Harum" slipped
away from Miro's soul in the presence
of Milton's "Comus," and Burke "On
Conciliation" a cultural devoutness
was engendered in him that never
really died. At first it. did not take
Miro beyond the stage where your
conscience is strong enough to make
you uncomfortable, but not strong
enough to make you do anything about
It. Mlra did not actually become an
omnivorous render of great books. But
he was filled with a jich grief that the
millions pursued cheap and vulgar fic
tion instead of the best that has been
thought and said In the world. Miro
Indiscriminately bought cheap editions,
of the English classics and read them
with a certain patient uncomprehend
On Chasing Pleasure.
"I don't believe in makin' much ex
ertions after pleasure. I don't believe
In cliasln' her up." Says I: "Let her
come of her own free will." Says
I, "You can't catch her by chasln' of
her up, no more than you can fetch a
shawer up In a-drewth, by goln' out
doors, and runnin' after a cloud up In
the heaven above you. Sit down, and
be patient, and when It gets ready the
refreshin' raindrops will begin to fall
without any of your help. And It's
just so with pleasure, Joslah Allen
you may chase her up and all over the
oceans and big mountains of the world,
but she'll keep ahead of you all the
tttae but set down, and not fatigue
yourself a-thinkin' about her, and like
as not she will come right into your
house unbeknown to you."—From "Jo
slah Allen's Wife."
Battlo for Prohibition.
Hard drinking In* England come to
be regarded as a grave national dan
ger. In 1735 a London grand jury held
the traffic responsible for a great
crime wave, and regulation of the
liquor business by law was Instituted.
Similar experiments were In the mean
time being made In America.
The battle in this country against
use and abiise of liquor began in a
mild way as a protest in pulpits
against drunkenness. A New England
society went so fur ns to bind Its mem
bers nn! to get (hunk except on the
Fourth of July mid general training
Advocates of moderation gave way
to those who felt that only total ab
stinence was the remedy. Then the

There is a showcase in the Roman
British section of the British museum
that contains the discharge certificates
given to soldiers In Britain at the time
of the Romans. The bronze certificates
are'quaintly worded, and record the
fpet that the holders "discharged hon
orably after 25 years of service," are
granted Roman citizenship If not al

their marriage with those who are

any wives they may subsequently mar
