how faithfully ho had unforced the

cided It waa tho right thine to do.
"It took you u Iohk limn to de

tliat parkliiK regulations had liven In
tho coilo for two or Ihrvo years and
the mayor had shown no enforcement
until thin week.

whether It was Reed for tho gonoral

among Jewish holidays, for It Is not

The fast originated In Biblical

and afflicted themselves while the
high priest made atonement for the

sacrifices, and especially by the sym

Into the wilderness to bear away the
sins of The People.
Now prayers take the place ot sac
