I'llll.l.ll's CASE POSTPONED,
Mr. Phillips' Attorney Not Present
liaise* Objection to Jury.
The Phillips case which was to have
been heard Wednesday morning be?
fore Judge of Probate T. E Itichard
son was postponed on account of the
fact that Mr. Phillips' attorney, the
Hon. M. L. Smith of L'amden who is
now engaged in a murder case in Dar?
lington, could not be present.
The counsel for the railroad Wanted
the case to go to trial, ut would not
preai the trial Wednesday because of
the absence of Mr. Smith. Mr. Phil?
lips also raised objections to the try?
ing of the case before the jury which
had been selected as there were citi?
zens of the city of Sumter on it and
thfse he regarded as parties directly
Interested in the railroad.
No date was set for the hearing of
the case, but a time will be set by
Judge Richardson as soon as the at?
torneys for the two sides agree.
The Day of Atonement.
The Day of Atonement, Yom Kip
pur, the holiest day in the Jewish
calendar falls this year on the 21st
day of September. The Hebrew date
is the 10th of Tishri. The festival is
ordained in Leviticus XVI 29-34 and
XXIII 26-82. In both passages it Is
Styled "A Sabbath of Solemn Rest."
The purpose Of the Day of Atone
no nt is clearly indicated by its name.
It is intended to complete and crown
the work Of the penitential season,
begun on the first of Tishri (New
Year), by Anally reconciling the soul
with the Almighty. Implicitly trusting
in the Divine forgiveness, the Israel?
ite believes that bis contrition, if it
be really sincere, will atone for him.
will make him "at one" once more
with his Heavenly Father. The day,
then, Is devoted to a supreme effort to
penitence, to a mighty endeavor after
communion with the Almighty. It is
spent in prayer and meditation,
it is kept, too, us a fast, in obedb n
to the command given In ? ach of the
two passages above cited where the
expression "afflict his sou " must be
understood, as it is throughout the*
Bible, IIS synonymous with fasting.
The chief, the real aln of the i?a>
of Atonement is the reformed Iii?'.
au the external elements of the day's
observance?its worship and auster?
ities?ars Intended to promote this
hi preme purpose. They cannot do
duty for it. The acl i f fasting is
partly to serve ai a self-imposed
chastisement, and partly it has q iv
fh'x Influence. For hunger and weak?
ness t?-li upon the conscience; they
mortify pride, break down obstinacy,
cast men down before God in humility
and contrition, Bui fasting does even

THE day of the Carpet is past, and 'tis well, for
they are expensive to buy. troublesome to

are unhealthy as they breed germs, whereas with a
Rug it is entirely different. You know the size of
the room, and all you have to do is buy a Rug to fit
it. and when you want to clean the room take up the
Rug and throw it on the back porch or somewhere
else to get a sun bath while you are dusting the fur?
niture, no chance for germs to get a foothold.
You might think we were exaggerating were we
to tell you that we have the best line of Rugs we
ever carried, but we believe you will agree with us
when you look over the stock. To begin with we have
