Today Begins the Celebration of the
' Jewish Festival.
New York. April o.— Today begins the
celebration of the Jewish festival of
"Pesaeh,” or the Passover, the observ

Jewish communities with more or less
formality during the ensuing eight days.
The festival is-the first of the Jewish
ecclesiastical year, and, according to tra
dition, was instituted by the Hebrew
leader and prophet, Moses, in the sojurn
of the children of Israel in the wilder
ness after their departure from Egypt.
The special feature of the celebration
of the Passover is the substitution of
“Matzos." or unleavened bread, in the
households of conforming Jews, and hence
the festival has been designated as the
‘‘Feast of Unleavened Bread.” These

under contract between the bakers and
the frmers; and is harvest, threshed,
stored, shipped and manufactured into
