Excerpt from The Gleaner: Spring Issue; May, 1922 There's much beauty and poetry in the customs and traditions of the holiday, most of which are reflected in the literature of the race. The housewife starts her work of completely renovating the house months ahead of time and does it with extraordinary interest. Poor men's houses appear like princely palaces. The whole race is truly affected by the advent of the holiday. All common animosities and prejudices are forgotten between the neighbors; all worries and industrial pursuits are laid aside, and a democratic free spirit prevails. As each Jew ish family sits around the richly set table celebrating the feast of Passover their thoughts are with their brethren scattered all over the earth. Who are also participating in the same feast. With race assimilation staring into their faces they are consoled by the fact that there are still common traditions which keep them united in one great fraternal bond. Passover comes in the spring of the year and that adds more to the romantic beauty. It comes with the songs of the birds, the buzzing of the bees and insects and other harbingers of spring. The whole atmosphere undergoes a complete change and mother earth clads herself with colors of freshness. At that time twelve million souls contentedly enjoy the outdoors after a long and dreary winter. Proudly they trod on mother Nature's paths, exchanging smiles and greetings as the 9001 spring breezes sooth their faces. There have been many \advocates for the plan of changing the judging of cattle so that performance and ancestry would be taken in consideration besides con: formation. At the recent Brentwood National Exhibition and sale the actions of those present belied the asser tions of the advocates of the change. There were cattle men of renown from all parts of the U. S. And even some from Canada and the animals exhibited and sold were the very best, yet it was shown conclusively that con formation occupied the prime requisite. The regularity of this prof is sufficient to deny that it was a coincidence. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
