Wednesday, Friday and Saturday of
this week are Kmber days. Von w ill
lind them mentioned in any almanac.
So ancient was the observance of the
Kmber days that St. Leo ascribes an
Apostolic origin to them. These have
been and are to-day fast days in the
Catholic church. They occur four
times a year, namely, the Wednesday,
Priday and Saturday which follow De
cember 13th, the first Sunday in Lent,
Pentecost and September 11th. The
object of these days are that we may
purify our souls and do penance as we
begin each quarter of the year.
The Kmber days are days of fast and
abstinence, that is we abstain from
meat and eat only one full meal on
those days. Those who are engaged in
hard labor, the sick, those who are not
21 years of age are exempt or dispensed,
but even these are obliged by the law
of (iod and the church to do penance
in some other way. And if Catholic,
or any man do not follow (Jod's law in
regard to penance, self-denial, it is not
the fault of (iod or (Jod's church whose
laws bind strictly, but it is the fault of
those who do not obey these laws.
We read in Luke 13-3 "unless you do
penance you shall all likewise perish"--see
Webster's definition of penance
it is "The suffering, labor, or pain to
which a person voluntarily subjects
himself or which is imposed on him by
authority as a punishment for his
faults, or as an expression of penance,
such as fasting, llagellation, wearing
chains, etc. Luke 5-32 "I came not to
call the just but sinners to repentance"
and also Acts 2-3S, Acts 2-2i Acts
The word Kmber is not derived from
the Knglish word meaning ashes. It
may come from the Anglo Saxon
yinbnn meaning revolution or circuit.
It is more likely a corruption of the
Latin quattuor temjmru-lour seasons.
The Dutch has qruittr temper, (Jerman
fuaiember, Danish kcut ember. The
word then probably conhes from these
in the four seasons.
The Kpworth League has secured
Miss McKinley, a missionary from
northern Ilindoostan, to give a lecture
in the M.' K. church on Monday even
ing, March 12. No young person can
afford to miss hearing this impressive
young lady tell of her work and people
she has been with the past four, vears.
A rousing choir is being secured and
the League hopes to have a full house
greet Miss McKinley. No admission
will be charged other than a free-will
Republican Township Caucus.
A caucus of the Hepublican electors
of the Township of Hrockway will be
held in the building on the Jacob
Menerey farm, 1 mile west and 1 mile
south of Vale, opposite Menerey church,
on Wednesday, March 21st at 1:30
o'clock p. m., local time, for the purpose
of placing in nomination the following
officers: 1 Supervisor, 1 Clerk. 1 Treas
urer, 1 Commissioner of Highways, 1
Justice of the Peace (full term), 1 Jus
tice of the Peace one year (to fill
vacancy), 1 Justice of the Peace three
