will have thai notion dispelled mighty quick after gazing on this display for utes and will join in Oh In And they eat and Yes they At store is the strongest ex- hibit of It is the onion booth and people on the red white and blue display of vegetables are prone to indulge in pun remarks though they do so rather they say The display beets anything of the ever seen on our streets though some people turn up their noses as they pass There are onions of and but the radish color seems to If you havent bean to see this display you better go some enterprising boarding house keeper cabbages the

a few days SAY CONTEST WAS CORRUPT Charges and Counter Charges From Pottawattamie County Sear and Cummins Men are After Each Other Alleged That Vatas Ware Bought and Ballot Boxes Stuffed Des Moines Sept political pilgrims who went out to mie county to assist the good people ol that community in their primaries last Friday and Saturday evenings haVe drifted back to town and they tell some hair raising stories about the contest in which Gear ried the county The ers while they do not admit that the county was of such vital importance to their cause as outsiders considered yet admit that they wanted it very much and made by far the hardest they have conducted in any single county thus far The altruistic advocate of high toned political methods would find a good deal In the general conduct of the fight calculated to grate on his tender sensibilities But the effort of either side to cast aspersions on the other because of methods employed would be a modern instance of the old debate between the pot and the kettle If the stories that are brought back have any truth in them neither side can lay claim to a large measure of political virtue in connection with the matter The Gear people have insisted for some time that Pottawattamie was not a pivotal They declared they had the contest won even they should lose that county The energy with which they devoted themselves to the fight however does not indicate so great confidence as would be pre- from their statements If the whole question of senator had been referred to Pottawattamie the fight could hardly have been waged with more desperation But with this county won and with their triumph In the Big Five district the Gear men are now claiming that the fight is all political out the statement that Gear now votes in sight in the joint caucus on the basis of nominations already made In making this mate he leaves out count of a nominees in close or democratic dis- where the chances are against the republicans electing and his best judgment and information to determine how the others stand as be- tween Gear and Cummins He then calculates that 115 is the outside limit of the number who will be entitled to seats in the joint caucus He considers 107 or 108 the more probable number Placing it at 115 his estimate gives Gear a majority of one But about the Pottawattamie The Gear people who were on the ground say that the Kock Island roact sent all its gravel trains In the vicinity of Council Bluffs into the town on day afternoon with instructions that the men were to vote for Cummins The Burlington however was not to be outdone in any such style It had a few gravel gangs of its own less the management of the road has been libelled it sent them from all over southwestern Iowa into the town ana voted them But this all wasn't a Wagons and came over Omaha with patriots who were willing to vote in Iowa at a fixed amount per And they voted too by precinct which cast less than 400 votes for McKinley in 1896 ana has never cast so many for a can candidate since turned out over 520 votes in the attempt was made practically to assure honesty in the primary Nobody's tions were especially investigated Men filed into the primary rooms deposited their ballots with the judges and filed out to receive the which was as the standard price The Gear people from all accounts had the longer purse They were able to keep at it longer Both sides had managers on hand from general quarters looking after organization and the process of handling the money and it was a red-hot time The half has not been told about it probably never will be written But in the end the Gear people won out The mins people insist that an honest ary would have shown a different re- sult but Pottawattamie has never been very strong on morality in politics and the will have to be accepted philosophically by anybody who doesn't like it ago in sept Partly cloudy Wednesday by n the n i central portion tonight

with congregations all over the world the Jewish ot Waterloo are celebrating the Hebrew New Year of Feast of Rash The observance the day began at C o'clock hist night and will conclude at 6 tonight In Hebrew chronology this begins tho year 6680 In the tabernacles ortho- dox and liberal there will be vance of the holiday alike In Intent but differing vastly In manner and form The liberal congregations in the Uni- ted membership embraces all the Jewish population ex- cept the Russian and Polish grants of the last ten years have discarded the solemn ceremonies ami antiquated forms that orthodoxy still reveres This observance of New Year's like their customary Sabbath services arc characterized by a as severe as the least ritualistic Christian meetings By them the New Year's festival Is observed through re- spect for old traditions and because ot its relations to the of the Jewish religion In the various synagogues there will be devotional assemblages this ing to signalize the advent of the year The services will consist in the liberal churches simply of Biblical readings prayer with responses by the choir hymns and a sermon The folio wing morning a somewhat similar ial will take place At the latter ing of Hannah from the book of Samuel Is to be read in all the synagogues The only other ceremony strictly of the day is the blowing of the phrase the festival derived Its original name of Yom Therau Even in this the ican congregations have departed what from the old forms and Instead sofa blare of horns an organ having somewhat the blance of trumpet tones heralds the advent of the new year New Year's day is but the first day of a season of culiar significance that ends on the tenth day thereafter solemn Yom or Bay of Atonement intervening days are called days of repentance and are observed by prayer and fasting There is much misunderstanding as to Jewish customs and beliefs founded largely on that profess to elucidate It should be understood that we observe the Julian or Gregorian in all respects as fully as do all other modern people It would cause a queer state of sion to do otherwise Our ob- servance of the New Year as such is merely in deference to traditions as as any In the world has But there Is also a philosophy governing this day institution that may bear tion The New Year festival is of course one of joy It signalizes the ing of all life for another year The tradition has it that for eight days lowing the Lord keeps open the books of life and of death and in one or other the name of every mortal is written It 1s natural that in this period of uncertainty there should be a spirit of repentance and mortification cised On the tenth day the books are closed and all make atonement to ex- press their submission to the Divine will So it will be seen there is a religious significance to these holidays but It is a mistake to suppose that in a calendarial sense they possess any importance By the orthodox Jews the ing season is invested with a much more exalted meaning and the most solemn ceremonies are employed The observances begin some days before Rosh The ceremonies are visited and rites performed at the graves of the dead believers in the an- cient faith and in the synagogues the scroll of the decalogue Is publicly read three times dally The Jewish calendar year is a lunar one The first day of its every month is so calculated as to be identical with or but one day after the appearance of the new moon To keep this relation the months consist of twenty-nine or thirty days But a twelve-month year would fall far short in this arrange- ment of the solar year and would displace the calendar in relation to the seasons To adjust this it was ar- ranged centuries ago that an extra month of twenty-nine days be inserted seven times in nineteen years And so this survival of the world's oldest is today as accurate and re- markable a piece of astronomical culation as the Gregorian calendar W A WILSON DEAD
