Hebrew Fast. The Jewish new year, 5,646, or "Rosh Ilashona," in Hewbrcw, began last even ing at 6 o'clock and will end at the same hour Friday. Ten days later comes the days of atonement, or in Hebrew "Yum Kipur." These two festivals are strictly observed by reformed as well as orthodox Israelites all over the glolie. Temples and synagogues are crowded during the days and Imsiness and other avocations are generally suspended, especially on the day of atonement. The services on oSuw Year's day are of a high and solemn char actor, and the feast is celebrated by all Israelites. Hars Again. There is a great deal of excitement in Muline today over the revival of the lli-nry Mirs case. Il has lieen given cir culation that Mars is In-fore the niand jury in hopes of finding indictment aguinst the parlies who gave him a coat of tar and feathers some months since and the ruumr has awakened a. spirit of indignation widen will end, it is stated, in a puriUlinient no less serious than the one w in rein he played a principal part l ist June. Molineites are ioud in their denuncia tion of States Attorney Entrikin, who, thev claim is particularly friendly with Mars, conducting a very weak prosecu lion against the negro when he was tried for his illegal offense, and now quite act- ive in scouring the town for witnesses to testify against the party who tared and feathered Mars. By bringing the case into the circuit court the county will be put at considerable expense, and as it is claimed that Mars' trial was little better than a travesty on justice, it would seem proper that the case, with all its mistiness, should be dropped What ever is done, Moline is entitled to the name of being the wickedest spot in Rock Island county. STILL OUT. Miners Refusing to Work. Comparison of the Wages Earned Here and in the East An Unset tled Condition In the Upper End of the County. All is quiet in the region of the miners' strike, in the east end of the county to day, but no work is being done. The proprietors of the mines, while dealing with the strikers civilly, refuse to accede to their wishes, claiming they are unable to pay 4 cents a bushel tor extracting the coal at the present price. On Tuesday it as stated in the Akous that the only mine in operation in the "upper end" was that of the Silvis Bros'., but such a pros'. ure was brought to bear on their men that all but one had quit yesterday. The men refused to strike, but simply stopped work, and took their tools home. They feel that their employers have treated them fairly, giving them work all the year around, and allowing them suflicient to make a comfortable living without any particular exertion. They have received their wajres in cash on the loth of every month, and are allowed the privilege of drawing whatever is coming lo them at any time during the month. The firm supply's them with powder at a moderate price, simply keeping it as an accoinm dilation or the miners. The other mines are ops crated on atioul the same plan, the men making anywhere from 2 to $4 per day. In the present quiet and depressed con dition of everv class of trade, the action of the miners seems to lie unfortuate. If, as it is claimed by the propne- Court Callings.

' Bed lien Attention. O. San Kec Trilic, No. 15. improved order of Red Men. All brothers are re quested to meet at the Wigwam, Friday evening, at 7 o'clock, Sept. 11th, for the purpose of going to Davenport to visit Oseoca Tribe No. 0, tors, the miners can make a very com fortable living at the prices now offered, we think it would be far better for them to go to go to work, at all events for the present. Winter is rapidly approaching, and unless these men take the opportuni ties now offered them, it is much to be feared that we shall see a considerable amount of suffering among their fami lies in the very near future. As a matter worth the consideration of miners in this district, we publish below an account of the pitiable condition of the miners and their families in the great coal region of Pennsylvania. When tempted to grumble at his own hard fate, it is well for a man sometimes to look around him and com pare his condition with that of some of his fellow men The causes of this poverty arc happily of a nature which render it improbable that the workers in our coal fields are likely ever to be afllicted in the same way or to a like extent. Thank God. the time is very remote when a dweller in this state will have to work and support his family on 75 cents a day. But if reckless strikes are indulged in the average earn ings of a man who can, when at work, easily make $2 a day are very quickly pulled down to 70 cents and less. We do not mean to say that our miners have struck recklessly, but we do desire to raise a warning voice against this constant tendency to strikes Small points of dif ference can so readily lie settled by arbi tration or mutual agreement that we hope the day is not far distant when these petty strikes may be looked on altogether as things of the past The story ot the Pennsylvania miners and its causes is given as follows in the New York Hun. It is unnecessary to search long deeply for the cause of the discontent of the laborers. In the coal and iron re gions a man's wages range from If 14 to f'Mi a month. The best paid iron miners are making about $14, and the best paid coal miners about The prevailing rale of wtges in the iron mines is seventy cents a day. The amount of money which each individual has lor iood.cloth ing, medicine, anil all necessaries, count ing three adults to a family, a man, h wife and three children, ranges from ten to thirlyfoiir cents a day. A miner has worked for from ten to twenty days in the iron and aulhracite legions, and it the ha'f or the two thirds time which makes the rate of wages meaningless. Rents are high. A man whose monthly income is $10, pays tt (or rent, and in some places rents run up to $15 and f 30, rive dollars a month is the amount charged generally by the companies for tne tenements winch tney own. What ten cents a day means is shown all over the mountains of Pennsylvania The houses in which the miners live arc usually no better shanties than are to be found in the outskirts of any one of our great cities. They have two or three roorts each. The front one is literally the living room. There are done the cooking, washing, and eating, and often the falher and mother occupy it for sleeping room. A rag carpet is rarely seen. J ne nouses are almost never painted, but are left to blacken with the accumulating coal dust of years. There are, of course, model villages, like Senas tor Cox's, at Dauphin, where the houses are while, and where there are gardens But in such a town as Scranlon, the workingmen's houses are built in long ugly rows. Dirt prevails, for to keep clean seems a hopeless task. The dwell ings have no gardens, the streets are not shaded by trees. The houses, some of them so wretched in appearance as to in cite uuthrift, crowd upon roads that are black with coal dust. Scranton and al most every other large town in the coal regions has plenty of ground back on the hills, where the workmen's cottages might be built, and where each house might have a tut of garden, but either the work men prefer the begrimed consolidation of a town, or else the operators find it more convenient to have their miners live to gether in barrar . -. Almost every rum ing community u.u a "shanty town" and it is there the laborers and miners are to be found, These people. living thus in dwelling! without a single attractive feature, eat scanty and unwholesome food. Ten cents a day will not command much in the wav of meat, and the men do not have much besides the cheapest kind of vegetables. The ordinary dinner in a miner's hut consists of potatoes and cabbage. thrifty man will keep a pig, and if he can get a piece of ground will raise potatoes and cabbages, lie is sure then, through the winter, of a barrel of pork and an the company store is maintained. This institution has recently been made illegal by the legislature of Pennsylvania, but the corporations find means ot evading the statute. Four or five of the leading stockholders, for instance, will own a store and put in an agent to manage it. A commission is paid to the agent, or tne store building, owned by the company or operator, is leased for from 112,000 to 20,000 a year. The property is worth actually from $300 to 400 rental. This large sura represents prospective pronts, less a fair sum for the agent's services. These stores charge from 15 to 30 per cent more than is charged by the regular vallage storekeepers, and the agents do their best to tempt the men and their families to extravagant expenditure. A miner's credit is good until his monthly earnings are exhausted, and, though the law of the state requires that all wages shall be paid monthly in United States money, there are mining places where othing is received by the men at the end of each month but a receipted bill for rent, for the sharpening of tools and for goods bought at the store. A large num ber of suits are now pending to test the validity of these receipts, some of the workmen having sued a corporation for wages, notwithstanding the payment of the store bills by the company. On the trial the suits were decided in favor of the workingmen. A good many tricks are resorted to by the stores for the pur pose of increasing the bill. If a miner wants a load of hay it is the practice to haul it for him in installments, the store charging for each hauling. Miners have been ordered to "lay on for several davs because they were a few dollars ahead of the store, and have been compelled to re main idle until their indebtedness at the store equalled the sum due them from th company. Other exactions are charged against the operators. It is said that they are unfair in weighing coal. In the anthartic re gions mining is paifl for by the day, so many carloads being required for a day s work. The miner is fined for a certain percentage of slate in a car. and dis charged when the amount of slate is in excess of the coal. His helper or slave suffers with him. In the bituminous re gions the coal Is paid for by the bushel, and seventyssix pounds constitute a bush el. The weighing boss determines for the company, and the check weigher for the men. 1 he law requires that the men shall have this check weigher, and they pay him from their earnings. But at many mines this law is also evaded, am the men charge that they are cheated by the weighing boss, and that for them a ton sometimes means d,000 pounds. 1 he men are paid only for the coal that does not pass through the screen, although the company sells all that is se.nl to the sur face. Three weeks' psy is kept back as a guarantee that a man will keep his con tract, so that a new hand works seven weeks before receiving a cent of pay This is a good thing for the company store. A miner who complains is drop ped, and he discovers that his name is known at the neighboring mines, and that he cannot get employment in the vicinity The men say that the operators keep black list of the men who are dissatisfied The Agrii-nltnral Display nt the Coe FairEffects of the Bad Weath erAttendance, Entries, Amusement, Etc TUG COB FAIR.

The enternrising ladies of the congregation have done all in their means to improve the interior decorations, and well have they succeeded. The contract for this work was let to Mr. F. A.
