ADMISSION 5 and 10 CENTS YOM KIPPUR WILL BEGIN AT SUNSET Day of Atonement Is Holiest in the Calendar of the Jew ish Church. Yom Kippur, or the Day of Atonement, the holiest day in the Jewish calendar, will be inau gurated at sunset today. Yom Kippur will end at sunset tomor row for the Reformed Jews, while the Orthodox Jews observe two days. I The origin and purpose of Yom Kippur is thus explained in a paper prepared by the Central Conference of American Rabbis: The Day of Atonement is the holiest in the Jewish calendar. This year it falls on Saturday, the 11th of October. Its biblical designation is Yom ha-Kippurim, later shortened to Yom Kippur. According to Biblical tradition it is one of the cycle of holidays instituted by Moses; for we find it mentioned in Leviticus 23:26-32, in the list of holidays. Its ceremonial is described in Lev. 16, its sacrifices in Num bers 29 ;7-ll. However, the Day of Atone ment is not dependent on the sacrificial service prescribed in the Bible. Thus, after the de Q+rnr»Hnn tV»p fprrmlp in flip year 70, when sacrifices were abolished, the Day of Atonement was able to survive, and of all holidays of the Jewish calendar it has most completely held its own in the hearts and observ ance of the Jewish people. Em phasis was laid upon confession, penitence, prayer and good deeds. It became the day of “af flicting one’s soul” (Isaiah 58:8, 5) which was interpreted as meaning fasting from the eve of Atonement until the following evening. As in the Biblical cere monial, confession continues to be an important feature of the service; yet, while confession brings forgiveness of sins be tween man and his Maker, sins between man and man are not forgiven until redress is made for the injury. The eve of Atonement Day, therefore, be comes the occasion for the cessa tion of feuds and ill will. And the Day of Atonement is known as the Sabbath of Sabbaths— when we are at peace with all the world. “The service of the Day of Atonement beginning with Kil Nidre service on the eve of Atonement is a continuous one throughout the entire day. The prayers in the synagogues are intoned in plaintive, penitential tones. The spirit of the master ly sermon of Isaiah (Isaiah 51: 4-9), which is the prophetical portion of the morning reading, is manifested throughout. Notice.

Johnson at Paroquet Who Is Reported To Have Been Justified. 1 Bob Green was shot and probably fatally wounded by S. F. Johnson Wednesday af ternoon at Paroquet, says the Newark Journal. Green had done some work for Johnson, and they had some slight trouble over a settlement 'for the work. This was several days ago, and Green is said to have chased Johnson into the store with a brick. Later, how ever, they succeeded in making an amicable settlement, and Johnson says he expected - no further trouble. Green went to Newport Wed nesday morning and returned Jon the local pretty well tanked : up. He lives near Johnson, and a short time after returning • home he went over into John j son’s horse lot and renewed the |trouble, and it is said, fired two' | shots at Johnson, although this • i i i is ucmeu u\ sun it:. I | Johnson secured his shotgun and shot Green, the load enter ing the left side of his head and face. Green was still alive at noon Thursday, but it is said that there is no chance for his recovery. Johnson surrendered to the of ficers and came to Newark and appeared before ’Squire A. H. Saylors and asked to be permit ted to give bond. Bond was fix ed at $1,000, which he gave for i his appearance before ’Sqirire Saylors for preliminary trial on Saturday. Both men are married and have families. Johnson is well known in New port and enjoys an excellent rep utation as being an intelligent and thrifty farmer of amiable disposition and good character, ] ! whose friends here are loth to believe that he was at fault in 'this trouble, but think that it j was forced upon him in defend , ing his life. ! Athletics Now Have Three i In the fourth game of the , world’s series, the Athletics j seized another from the Giants ! and pushed their chances for the world’s championship to within one game of the coveted goal as Philadelphia has now won three and New York but one.

Oct. 10.—As a re sult of the recent inspection of the Arkansas State Guard, four companies of the militia have been recommended for discharge b.v Captain A. B. Sloan inspector instructor, and the War Depart ment several days ago sent or ders to headquarters in Little Rock for them to be mustered out of the service. The companies affected are: Piggott, Company L, First Reg iment ; Black Rock, Company E, First Regiment; Heber Springs, Company I, of the Second Regi ment ; Eureka Springs, Company If of the Second Regiment. They are already being mustered out. but it is possible that some of them may re-organize. This action was taken by the War Department on account of the fact that the companies did not come up to the requirements i set by the government for the National Guard, especially in the matter of caring for the property. The dropping of these companies leaves eighteen in i the organization but there are a number of other places apply ing for enlistment that will soon fill the full quota of the two reg iments. “Religion and Patriotism.” All real liberty as well as ev-; ery true democracy is the pro duct of evangelical religion. De- j stroy evangelical religion in our nation, and we will soon be num bered with the nations that for- . got God and are known to men only from the pages of history. God in His love and wisdom has ' chosen our nation to be the home of liberty. This is shown in His , directing our forefathers who ; were persecuted at home, to this land, where they were to build , this glorious nation by their re ligious zeal. Back in Germany and England and other countries God had by special Providences protected the Anglo-Saxons even in their growth to a great race, the greatest in the world, from the blight of Islam and from the curse of Roman Catholicism. In the defeat of the former by Charles Martel after it had taken Spain and carried its way into the heart of France, God by al most a miracle saved England from its ruin. In the success of Protestantism in England and in the destruction of the “Invin cible Armada” of Phillip, a fleet of three hundred and sixty ves sels by the English fleet of thir ty-four, God again worked a miracle and saved liberty from being strangled in its infancy, and our country from being set tled under Roman Catholic m fluences. So in the discovery and colon ization of America God was op eningthe way for the Anglo Saxon people, imbued wit spirit of the evangelical gospel, to become a great nation. r j F. Love says: “A continent would be needed for the people who would be most affected bt modern learning, who would c<> ! most to carry it forth toward its fulfilment and best exemplify its spirit. The Anglo-Saxon race and evangelical religion mus have unfettered opportunity t benefit by all these and to find a free and full expression undei their inspiration. Hence m the fulness of time, had come a new land arose out of the sea to serve as a bulwark and reserve for the age reformation The student of history i*s blind who fails to see that (iod has a great purpose in the build ing of our nation and that pur pose is to be the apostle of lib erty to the nations of earth. And may I say here that that purpose can be carried out only so far as we live up to the prin ciples o fthe evangelical gospel. Our nation shall fail or succeed inin proportion as she fails or succeeds in cann ing the gospel to the world. The founders of our nation realized that only as our people were true to the principles of the evangelical gospel, would this nation succeed. Hear the words of the great Washington in a circular letter issued to the governors of the thirteen states from Newburg in 3 7815. ”1 now make it my earnest prayer, that (Iod would have you and the state over which you preside in His Holy protection, and final ly that He would most gracious ly be'pleased to dispose all to do j justice, to love mercy, humanity j and pacify temper of mind, which were the characteristics of the Divine Author of our! blessed religion, without our i humble imitation of which ex ample in these things we can never hope to be a happy na tion.” In his farewell address he said: “Of all the disposi tions and habits which lead to social prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable sup ports. In vain would t1 t man claim the tribute of patriotism i who would labor to subvert the great pillars of human happi ness.” Then we must realize that “the question affecting our na tional greatness is not how big the nation is going to be, how rich nor how powerful, but how virtuous, how true. Neith er the census report nor 1h port table is the criterion of our greatness, but the state of preservation among us of those principles and pillars ot the re public which make charactm and on which 0111 institutions ;>iv built." the re arc >ome tilings which every man who loves his country and his home must oppose, a mmig them are, "the liquor busi ness'—in which the nation is a partner in its own rum and sells the manhood o| it-' citizens for revenue; the divorce evil— the nation's social scandal; the white slave trathe 'he world’s disgrace: murder in which mu nation leads the world; graft, bribery and ballot box fraud t he barter of thieves in the priv ileges of our freedom. Liberty does not mean license; Democracy does not give anyone tin* liberty to do anything which will certainly harm an inno cent fellow citizen. A democra cy is the collossus of civil evils if the people be degraded. There fore only evangelical religion can establish and maintain a true Democracy.
