While in St. Louis a few weeks ago I bought the largest stock of Holiday and Fancy goods ever shown on this market. These goods have just arrived and will be ready for inspection in a few days. While it is early for such goods those wishing to get first choice can select now and we will take care of them till wanted. W. P. Wood

Ben Siegel and L. Rothbaum went to Lehigh Tuesday to be present at the religious exercise Tuesday night and Wednesday. The day is known as the Day of Atonement to the Jews and is the most solemn day in the Jewish religious calendar. It comes just nine days after New Year’s Day and forms the conclusion of a period of meditation and earnest thought known as the Ten Days of Repentance. The devout still observe it as a fast, and touch neither food nor drink for twenty-four hours from evening to evening. It’s name indicate its purpose of calling to people’s minds their sins and transgressions but Biblical, Rabbinical teaching both declaring that not prayer nor penitence nor fasting alone can win divine forgiveness, but the firm resolve to do better and live more worthily. On this day Israelites the world over abstain from their occupations and devote themselves to the solemn services instituted by their religion. Formerly, and to this day in some parts of the world, the pious once entered the house of worship at sunset on the eve of Atonement Day remained there all night through and the next day till the stars again appeared. In all temples and synagogues continuous services are held through the day. An impressive feature is the memorial of the dead in which all the departed are called to remembrance.
We invite the merchants of Caddo to come to the Herald office at any time and see the enormous pile of papers that we print and circulate. If they will do this we have no fear but that we will get an ad from them at the low rate which we make.
HOGS HOGS HOGS
Remember that hogs are bringing a big price. Feed your corn to your hogs; it will bring you 50c or more per bushel. It requires less labor to raise hogs than cotton and there is more profit in corn and hogs than there is in 10c cotton. Bring me your fat hogs and I will pay you the highest market price. R. A.
