From the opening of the doors until
10 o'clock last evening the scene in the

The store had been attractively dec

was indeed one of splendor. Hidden

In expressing him grief at the death
of Judge Madison the President said:

Dr. Wiley on the Value of Cottonseed
In these days when so much is being
said about the purity of food products,
and the health fulness of different foods
it is refreshing to hear what the great
authority. Dr. Wiley, bai to say about
cottonseed oil and its pro luct.
The quotation given is from an ad
dress Dr. Wiley made before the Inter
state Crushers' Association in New
York last June.
"You have a meritorious article, you
have learned h iw to purify it and make
it palatable anl attractive, an 1 you
have everything now but the confidence
of the public mid the knowledge on the
part of the consumer how to me your
product. Put a little effort in that line,
and you will see what wonderful re
turns you will have. I do not believe
there is a man, woman or child in this
country, if the consumption of cotton
seed oil was common today throughout
this broad land, but what would have
better health and be a better judge of
what ia good to eat, and be happier, by
reason of his better health, than he i

of the puhlic, I am pleading for a wid

THE DAY OF
Begius on Sunday Evening And
' Continues Through
When the first stars appear in tho
heavens Sunday evening, October 1st,
they will usher in the day holiest to the
Jew in his entire religious calendar.
From that hour until the evening of the
following day, Oct. 2d, the devout Isra
elite will give himself entiaely to God,
and to the purifying of his soul by re
pentance. It wilt be a day spent by
him in meditation and prayer, with no
thought of the world, its profits or
pleasures. It is the great White Fast,
wnen, aosiaining irom an iooa, irora
sundown to sundown, the people of Is
rael "afflict their souls" for the sins of r
the past year. : ;. . v .'.;'' i' f- Sr'
The holy day is mentioned in : the Bi-
ble in a number of places; Leviticus xvi -describes
the elaborate priestly ceremo
nial of atonement; ibid xxiil, 26-32, it
appears in the list of festivals where
i he "affliction of the soul" (fasting) is :.
ordained; ibid xxv, 9 announces that on '
the Day of ' Atonement, each fiftieth "
year, the trumpet sound shall usher ia
the jubilee year; while' Numbers xxix,
7-11 describes the sacrifices of this so-
credday. Froat .these 'references akdv
later accounts in the Talmud we can"
get a picture of thia Day of Awe as It
was celebrated in Biblical times. The
holy day on the tenth day of Tishri was
observed by abstention from food and
drink and by an elaborate ceremonial in
w ich the high priest waa the central
figure. He besought forgiveness for his
own sins and those of his own house
hold, then for those of the wider house
hold of priests, then for all the people.
Of two goats, he slaughtered one as a
sacrifice "for the Lord" and set the
other aside "for AaazeL" The blood
of the sacrifices he sprinkled Upon, tho
curtain of the Holy of Holies, to puri
fy it from the sins of the people. .
. From this Biblical ceremonial which
throughout seeks for forgiveness of the
community as a whole, the Day of
Atonement has been somewhat changed
iu Rabbinic Judaism and in the modern
service and emphaaizea also repentance
