BEN-BEOR. A STORY OF THE ANTI-MESSIAH IN TWO DIVISIONS. Part I.—Lunar Intaglios, The Man in the Moon, a counterpart Of Wallace's "Ben Hur." Part ll.—Historical Phantasmagoria, The Wandering Gentile, a companion romance to Sue's "Wandering Jew." Here's a book for every Jew to read ; to be passed from sire to son and from mother to daughter. The critic had this book for more than a year before reading it; he did indeed, soon after obtaining it make an attempt, but after going over a chapter or two concluded that the hallucinations of the author were hardly worthy of a further perusal. His attention having been recently called to the book by a lady of literary taste he returned to it with a suspicion of disappointment which, however, has not been confirmed. The work speaks for itself in such tones of strength that the Jewish reader may, with confidence, request any of his christian brethren to examine its contents without fear of the results. By the over-zealous Jewish student it might...

THE JEWISH SOUTH. INTERESTS OF JUDAISM. PUBLISHED WEEKLY. HERBERT T. EZEKIEL, Editor and Proprietor, 72a2 EAST MAIN STREET. Subscription, One Dollar per annum. Single Copy, Five Cents. Advertising Rate, 25 cents per inch. Entered at the Poat Office, Richmond, VA., as second class mail matter. OUR GREETING. As it is generally conceived, every book of any consequence should have a preface. Likewise, the initial number of a newspaper is not complete without a salutatory. There is the difference, however, that a a preface is ordinarily written after the book is finished, and the writer can measure his claims by his work and tell definitely what he has attempted to do. The salutatorian has the untilled field of journalistic possibility still before him, and has to content himself with a statement of what he hopes to do. This, then, be the endeavor of "THE JEWISH SOUTH." It does not presume to say that it is going to fill a long-felt want but it does claim, that there being only one Jewis...

During the early days of '63, when the success of the Southern arms seemed highly probable, a significant incident occurred in the Confederate States Congress. A debate of no great moment was in progress, during the course of which Henry A. Foote, of Mississippi, incidentally remarked that he purposed, so soon as the independence of the South was achieved, to introduce a law providing that no Jew should be allowed to approach within twelve miles of the capital. Now, Foote was admittedly a fanatic of the first water, and if the matter had stopped there nothing would have been thought of it. But it did not. No sooner had the announcement been made, than the house was swept by a round of applause, thus showing that Foote's views coincided with those held by his confreres. Nearly a quarter of a century had passed, when, in November, 1887, the corner-stone of the Lee monument was laid. The weather upon that occasion was so inclement that the address was delivered in the hall of the House...

ANENT the ordinance now pending in the Richmond City Council for the compulsory inspection of meat and milk, the following, from the Chicago Israelite's correspondence, is quite pertinent: "The method of slaughtering and examining animals as prescribed by the Mosaic code is a very good thing. A diseased animal should certainly be rejected as unfit for human food. I would like to know how many professional slaughterers of animals are sufficiently competent and honest to fulfill the duties of their office. Most of them know there is something wrong if they discover a mass of tubercle as big a hat, or a lung cavity large enough to admit their fists, and tha...

THE DEATH OF ESAU. His Tragic End as Graphically Described in the Talmud. When Isaac died, Jacob and Esau wept together for their father's demise. They carried his body to the cave of Machpelah, which is in Hebron, and all the kings of Canaan followed with the mourners in the funeral train of Isaac. He was buried with great reverence, even as though he had been a king; his children mourned for him twelve months, and the kings of Canaan lamented sorely for thirty days. Isaac bequeated his cattle and all his possessions to his two sons. Esau said then to Jacob, "Behold, this which our father has left us must be divided into two portions, then I will select my share." Jacob divided all his father's possessions into two portions in the presence of Esau and his sons, and then addressing his brother, said: "Take unto thyself both these portions which thou seest before thee. Behold, the God of heaven and earth spoke unto our ancesters, Abraham and Isaac, saying 'unto thy seed will I give t...

VOL. I. RICHMOND, VA., FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 8, 1893. NO. 3. RICHMOND REMARKS. It is understood that an effort will soon be made to establish a Jewish Chautauqua in Richmond. Mrs. Caroline Straus, accompanied by her granddaughter, Miss Florence Bloomberg, has returned to the city after summering at the Hotel Albemarle. The Board of Directors of the Congregation Kenesath Israel will be at the Synagogue, Sunday morning the 10th, at 9 o'clock, to sell seats for the coming year.

There is some talk of a consolidation of the Sir Moses Montefiore and Kenesath Israel Congregation. Su...

Single Copy, Five Cents. Advertising Rate, 25 cents per inch. Entered at the Post Office, Richmond, Va., as second class mail matter. The advent of the holy season is always a thing of great moment to the Jew. From the prevailing indifference which is to be seen on all sides and which has affected the most solemn of religious observances, the high holidays have so far been exempt. It is possible that their comparative infrequency may in some small measure account for this, but the real reason lies in the fact that these "fearful days" represent that, against which all the forces of civilization have thus far battled in vain. The mystery of death and the still deeper mystery of life are unconsciously brought home to us as, by the New Year, we are told, in unmistakable manner, how swiftly and ineluctably...

MORE INTOLERANCE. Two weeks ago we made reference to the fact that in a recent primary an entire ticket had been defeated in consequence of a derogatory remark made by one of the candidates. It is true that this was a hardship on the innocent victims, but there was no other way of securing the desired result. We are sorry to say that the matter was not allowed to drop there as we were in hopes it would be. A few days ago a woman who does considerable dressmaking for Jewish ladies came to the house of the gentleman who had compassed the defeat of the candidates in question. She said her landlord had given her notice to move as he did'nt want "Jew women" coming to his house to have their dresses made. "Jews and niggers" he said were always giving him trouble, and there was only one decent Jew in town. Investigation disclosed the fact that he was one of the beaten candidates. Now this particular gentleman is an employee of one of the city departments, or to speak plainly a "public serv...

SHE DIDN'T WANT IT. Those whose mission in life it is entertain the public are alays pestered by friends and acquaintances for free seats at their entertainments. There probably never was a singer or an actor or a pianist who has not bored nearly to death by these people, many of whom had not the slightest claim to ask the courtesy they demanded. A pianist who was pre-eminently successful in his day, and that day was not so far back either, was Rubenstein, who travelled nearly the whole world over delighting people with his genius. He like all others, was very much annoyed by requests for complimentary tickets, but most of the time he mantained his composure even though justly irritated. It is told of him that just before one of his recitals in London he was accosted by an old lady in the entrance hall, and thus addressed: "Oh, Mr. Rubenstein, I am so glad to see you! I have tried in vain to purchase a ticket. Have you a seat you could let me have ?' "Madam," said the great pianist,...

Vol. I. RICHMOND, VA., FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 15,1893. No. 4. RICHMOND NEWS. Want to Buy the Synagogue. The following from the Dispatch of Thursday last has the stamp of official approval: At the annual meeting of the Congregation Kenesath Israel, held at their synagogue on Tuesday evening last, the following officers were elected for the ensuing year: President, H. Fisher; vice-president, Ph. Hirshberg; secretary, W. Pearlstein; treasurer, E. C. Myer; trustees, N. Greewald, S. Scheer, B. Paris, M. Myer, G. Kern, I. G. Bernstein; sexton, I. Michael. It was also decided to appoint a committee of five to report back to a meeting to be held the latter part of this month, what revision they deem necessary in the form of worship and rules governing the synagogue, to change the congregation from an Orthodox to a Moderate Reform one. The older members have for years used their every exertion against making any such revision, while the younger members are in favor of it, in order to conform with...

Single Copy, Five Cents. Advertising Rate, 24 cents per inch. Entered at tbe Post Office, Richmond, Va., as second class mail matter. Atonement Day. "Let us not idly shirk the task. But face ourselves and boldly ask Our conduct whether it has trod The path of mammon or of God ?" "Kippur day," as a day of terror is disappearing, but atonement day of earnest devotion, prolonged meditation and self-inquiry is taking its place. The day has not lost its hold upon Israel, because one sees now so many who do not fast, but it is changing its character. From being a period of bodily affliction and mental terror, it has become more a day of spiritual exclusiveness, when the world, the flesh and the devil being cast aside, the heart is undisturbedly devoted to the contemplation of the eternal treasures of faith.

are better than the calculations of the head. I know that careful people, prudent people, politic people, people who never commit themselves, appear to get along better; that impetuous, impulsive people are always doing things awry, stepping on people's toes, and saying things mal-apropos, and committing blunders; but now, think you when you choose a friend, or have a friend, on whom do you the more rely, the one who acts for you from motive of the head, or from the promptings of the heart? Is that affection, is that, true, deep and earnest love that rises from calculated results, or that wells up, irresistibly from the fountain of the heart ? Let the heart speak, for it speaks in no uncertain tones. Guard well the heart, for out of it are the issues of life. See now, you will all have opportunity. The winter promises to be a hard one, and a severe one for those who have been accustomed to rely upon their weekly wages for support. The factories and shops that have been closed, or th...

HEART vs. HEAD. Dr. Calisehs New Year's Sermon a Splendid Effort. Proverbs IV. 23—"Above all things, guard thy heart, for out of it are the issues of life. My Friends:— The difference between the sentiment aroused by New Year's eve, and that by New Year's morning, is as the difference between death and life. Last evening we stood at the grave of a year that was dying, and ere yet we had left the house of God, it had been laid away in the limitless sepulcher of the past. Our minds were then naturally busy with retrospection. The fading rays of the sun, the oncoming twilight and the deepening darkness of the night gave rise rather to the subdued sadness of memory, than to the brightness of hopeful expectation. We were busy then meditating on what had been and was no more. This morning we stand at the cradle of a year new born, that is coming to us.with its burden of life's happenings for us all. Ignorant, though we are, of what may be in store for us this coming twelvemonth, yet we we...

ing, of purely a religious nature, should have taken place just at this particular season, and without human design, even rather in defiance of human wishes and plans is nothing short of providential, and he who sees nothing significant therein, is surely blind. The wordly-wise may scoff and declare it is a mere coincidence. So too the expulsion of the Jews from Spain and the discovery of America in 1492, and Blucher's arrival and Grouchy's delay, which rendered Waterloo possible, have been coincidences. They are coincendences wrought by a design, deeper than human comprehension, and are remarkable, not so much for their fortuitousness, as that they are figures on the dial of history, which mark the fulfillment of the plans of Him, who maketh and unmaketh nations. C. From Petersburg. Petersburg, Va., Sept. 13, 1893. The New Year's services here were very impressively conducted by Mr. Horowitz, our new Rabbi, and were better attended than previous years. Our young people were out in ...

RICHMOND NEWS. No Change in Time of Services. An extremely well-attended annual meeting of the congregation Beth Ahabah was held at the Synagogue last Sunday morning. The reports of various officers were submitted, and proved quite satisfactory. The financial condition of the Congregation was shown to be all that could be desired, and it was ordered that $500 additional be placed in the sinking fund. The board reported, with adverse recommendation, a resolution providing that during certain fall and winter months the Friday evening services be held at 8 o'clock instead of at dark. There was a long discussion of the question, which resulted in its defeat, the vote standing, ayes, 27; noes, 13. Mr. Moses Milhiser, president, and Mr. N. W. Nelson, vice-presi-dent were re-elected to their respective offices. Messrs. Wm. Lovenstein, Jacob May and Isaac Thalhimer were reelected to the Board of Managers for the term of three years.

HE WAS A JEW. And Knew How to Give Good Reasons for It. Under the caption of "A Political Document of the Year 1800," Dr. Cyrus Adler, contributes to the first number of the American Jewish Historical Society papers, the splendidly written paper given below : Dr. Adler states that, "the original copy of the document was secured from Mr. John M. Noah, of the U. S. National Museum, grandson of Mordecai M. Noah. It was evidently written in the heat of a politicall campaign and is at once dignified and spirited. "Benjamin Nones was of French birth. Some years since I made a copy of his naturalization certificate, dated October 9th, 1784. In that instrument he was described as a'merchant.' Someaccount of his military career may be found in Markens' ' The Hebrews in America,' p. 126." It should be borne in mind that the two grand political parties of that day were the Federals and Republicans. The latter's principles were about the same as those of the Democrats of the present, whilst the...
