The chief, the real aim of the day of atonement is the reformed life. All the external elements of the day's ob servance its worship and austerities are intended to promote this supreme purpose. They cannot do duty for it. The act of fasting is partly to servo as a self-imposed chastisement, and partly it has a reflex influence. For hunger and weakness tell upon tho conscience; they mortify pride, break down obstinacy, cast men down before God in huniility and contrition. But' fasting does even more than that. Taking the worshipper away from such carnal occupations as eating and drinking, it helps to fix his thoughts upon the needs of the soul. It makes the day one .of physical abstinence and self-denial, but also of correspondingly increased spirituality. ENGINE FRIGHTENS HORSE AND MAX IS FATALLY HURT Clarksville, Tex., Oct. 11. J. K.
