British Isles last night to deal

that some of. the men were still
living when the great vessel
struck the. ground. The cap
tain's body was found some dis
tance from the wreck.
The death and burning of the
first Zeppelin was witnessed by
tens of thousands of London's
residents but the wounding and
descent of the second raider was
a matter of doubt until today's
official statements were given

Londoners were jubilant today
but there was not the same ex
ultant enthusiasm as three weeks
ago, indicating that the destruc
tion of giant sky-raiders is al
ready taken as an ordinary inci
dent in this unusual world war.
The fact that the airships were
brought down well outside of
London, both last night and

with which the defenses

in dealing with the raiders was

Steel Car Shed 109x600 Feet to be Erected
Washington, D. C , Sept. 23.
Greatly enlarged facilities for re

repairing points on the system,
wuXbe constructed at once by
the Southern Railway to consist
of a new all steel car shed 109
feet by 600 feet with a shop ad
Joining 50 feet by 100 feet.
The new facilities will replace
the present small and congested
wooden shed used for this pur
pose and will permit a greater
output at less cost. The shed
will be equipped with overhead
cranes for handling car bodies
and materials and will have all
modern conveniences and econ
omic appliances, while the shop
will be provided with machine
t(Kils of the latest design for
this special line of work. Addi
lional track room will be provid
ed for handling the increased
number of cars that can be re
paired. The plant will be elec
trically operated with current
purchased locally. A transfor
mer house will be constructed
to take care of the current.
Bids are uow being solicited
from contractors for the founda-
tiou work which will be com

been awarded and the remainder
of the work will follow promptly.

JEWISH NEW YEAR FALLS ON THURSDAY.
More Orthodox Will Observe Thursday and
Friday in Celebration;
Rosh Hashanah (the - Jewish
New Year) also called Yom
Hazikoron "Day of Memorial,"
falls this year on Thursday,
September 28th. Itcommences,
however, the evening previous
since in Bible usage the days are
coon ted from sun-down to sun
down. The in re orthodox will
observe not only Thursday but
Friday as well, it being their
custom to keep a second day in
connection with practically all
the more important Jewish holi
days and festivals This custom
on their part grew out of certain
complex conditions in the calen
dation of early rabbinical times
and the practice, once estab-
lished, has been kept up by
them, even though the original
reason n longer obtains, rue
Reformed Jews observe only
tne day scripturally prescribed
The date of Resh Hashanah is
the first day of the month of
Tishri and the New Year now to
be ulhgred in is, according to
the traditional Jewish Calendar,
the year 5877.
Unlike January 1st. Rosh
Hashanah has been fully able to
resist secularization It is in
form and spirit a holy day dis
tinctively, not a holiday. Solemn
services characterize its observ
ance both evening and morning.
It is a time dedicated! to retro
spection, introspection and reso
luti i .s for the future. The day
bears the special designation of
Yom ha-Dinora Day of Judg
ment. With puaiut mysticism
the old tradition represents the
souls of men as being on this
day before the Divine Tribunal
at the auuual assizes on . high.

are set down, but (and this is the
significant element in the con
ception) the award in each given
case must be sealed by the per
son himself, meaning thereby,
that, though the varying issues
of the New Year proceed rrom
God's providence, no one's future
is determined apart from what
he himself is and does. Out of
the above conception has grown
up the familiar greeting inter
changed by Jews on Rosh Hash
anah, namely, "leshonali tovah
tikasevu," meaning "May you
be inscribed for a good year!"
An important feature of the
ritual f Rosh Hashanah is the
blowing of the Shofar or Ram's
horn. In ancient days the
sounding of this instrument was
associated with times of national
crisis and other solemn occa
sions. There are various fanci
ful explanations of the counec
tion of the Shofar with the cele
bration of Rosh Hashana. Each
of its dominant notes likewise
nas been given a symbolic sig
nificance. As the tones of the
Shofar are of a peculiarly pierc
ing quality the sounding of the
Shofar may be regarded as a
clarion -call "to the conscience to
strive after the higher life in

corded to the ceremony of the
