the first day of the - Jewish montlJ
Tishri, will mark the beginning of the
Jewish High Holidays. . These holidays
of deep religious significance, will
commence with the feast of Rosh Has
hanah, or New Year. The New Year
will be followed by Ten days of Peni
tence, which reach their climax in the
Day of Atonement, October 7.
"On the New Year all the inhabitants
of the earth pass before Him as sheen
before' the shepherd." In these words
the - ancient Jewish law book, the
Misha, refers to the s'gnificance of this"
day. It is a day of Judgment when the
sins and the merits of all men are
weighed- by - the Divine- Judg?.
The Talmud tells that in this annual
Ner ' Year's Julgment scene- three
books lie open before the Most High.
In one book, the Book of Life, the
names of the -perfectly righteous, the
sinless, are inscribed; the second book,
the book of death has recorded in it
the names of the utterly wicked; and
the third book is for the-ordinary
"middle type" of men, in whose be
half judgment is suspended through
the ten, -days of penitnece, until the
Day of Atonement when the decision
fs filially, made and recorded.,
The services for the day are especi
ally solemn.- Prayers in prose and
poetryy dwelling upon . the theme of
God's Judgment of man, are recited
arid sung. The Rani's horn, the "Sho
far," summoning men to prayer and
repentance, is soundeeL inilLsyna
gogs. At .the, close' of .the service Vthe
worshippers greet each other with the
words May you be written down for
ar good, year."
Orthodox Jews observe many cere-,
mon'es " which suggest the-ideas and
emotions of the day. In the home
honey and - fruits ; are eatenc and ? thje.
pious wish expressed "May it be Thy
will to renew tor us a good and sweet-
year. During the day, orthodox-Jews
will go to-a river, shake crumbs from
their cloths ' and rec'te among cfccr
nrayera the; verse-: from Mica "And
you wiH. cast into" the depts of th
sea, all their, sins' While orthodox
Jews -observe the feast for two days,
September 27 and 28 this year. Reform
Jews return to the ancient Palestinian
custom and observe but one day.
3Vell John, what can I do for you?
Doctor Brown inquired cordially ag
he Came into his study and shook
hands with John Forbes.
"I am applying for a position in a
bank, sir. S"ome recommendations

ciency expert to look at things that
way, but I didn't think -a Christian

Of viejy ng tb Christ'ait- teaching,'
The clergyman gat still, looking very
thoughtful. . -
"I certainly should like to. recom
mend you, Johh," he said at length,
"but I have a feeling that I ought to 3
be truthful about what I say in such
a matter, and I am wondering just
what I can say truthfully that will
impress the bank in your favor."
John's face showed surprise. "Why
I jcan't think of anything very wrong
that I have done" he said, after a
pause. , ,.- -
"That's exactly as I had rated you.",
replied the-rector,'"and I must admit
that the rating does not impress ,me
very favorably. : Suppose, - for in
stance, that you wanted work as a
porter, and the bank wanted to
knojv whether iyoii' were physically
strong enough for the work I might
be able to mention one hundred dis
eases you did not have. I might
make it two hundred, or any other
number, but that would not answex
the question. The bank would
not want to know how many
diseases you didn't have, - but
how much physical strength you
did have. You might have no disease
at all, and yet have almost no
strength. fW: - '
"I'd like to believe that it was dif
ferent with you 1 norally, but honesty
compels me to say i never have seen
an intimation of it in your life. I
never heard of you1 doing anything
very wrong; but neither have I heard
ot-youc-.doing'.. anything very good. I
can't, say that you. have morl iaarac
ter just-because ydu haven't; any: great

Of them? are-nearer, to it than you.
r ''XPul; have-, only- drifted. You have
let yourself, float 1 along the lin.e of
least-resistance. You - have fritted
away your time and your opportuni
ties,,. You just barely escaped failure
all the way- through , your .high-school
course, -go, far you have escaped-doing
anything very wrong. You also
have escaped doing- anything very
good. In fact, you haven't done any-J
thing at all." . . ..

of His parables, told of a number of
people who suffered punishment after
death. It is a striking fact that not
one of them was condemned for
wrong things Jie had done, but for
right things he had left undone, John
Forbes, turn about and face, the thing
squarely. You haven't been a man
you have beep a kind of jellyfish. You
haven't been anything positive. You
have been a trailer, a hangeron, a neg
ative weakling. Let met see you for
one week positively do something that
is hard to do something you are dis
inclined to try and less-inclined t'j
stick at, and then come back and
I'll give you the recommendation."
"I'm pretty mad," said John, "but
I'm going to do as you say."
"I want you to keep mad until you
have done it,' replied Doctor Brown.
