Adversity. " The name of the slough was Despond.". Walking along a country road one summer morning all filled with restless discontent I idly broke off a branch of bitter-sweet from a" hedge near by. While carrying it in my hand, I chanced to notice, amongst the many green berries, one whose vivid scarlet and orange coloring proved it was fully ripe. What could possibly have brought this one berry to perfection in growth before any of its fellows showed the slightest sign of maturity ? Upon closer inspection I discovered that the little stem upon which this particular berry hung had been in some manner snapped and almost broken across, but the berry still clung bravely to the parent plant by a few remaining fibres. Prevented from receiving its usual supply of nourishment, and in a way separated from all the other berries on the branch, Nature seemed to have compensated for this double deprivation by helping, it in ways known only to herself, to gain the beautiful hues of ripeness lo...

SELFISH CONTENTMENT AND COMMUNAL DUTY. A SERMON BY RABBI EDWARD N. CALISCHSeek the peace of the city whither I shall exile you, and pray to God in its behalf; for in its peace will there be peace to you. <Jer. xxix 7.) Content has always been valued as one of the most highly-prized of human possessions. Poeta have sung its praises ; philosophers have spoken of its beauty ; teachers have ever urged man to its attainment. The contented man is pictured as the only really happy man, and the discontented is the embodiment of unhappiness. This picture is true in a certain measure and to a certain extent, but by no means wholly so. While absolute contentment may be a very valuable thing for the individual who possesses it, it is hardly so for the race at large or for the community in which that individual may live Had all the world been absolutely contented with their lot, it is barely possible that any human progress had ever been made. Tnat the race has advanced, and that impr...

, , — 3he kicked, but it did not help. The other sinner would not let go his hold, and the angel, continuing to pull, was lifting them both. But lo ! another sinner clung tot hem, and then a third, and more and more—till a chain of miserable sinners hung at the woman's feet. The angel never ceased pulling. It did not seem too much for the carrot, and they all were lifted in the air. But the old woman suddenly took fright Too many people were taking hold of her last chance of salvation, and kicking and pushing those whe were clinging to her, she exclaimed, "Let go! hands off! the carrot is mine." No sooner had she pronounced the word " mine," than the tiny stem broke, and they all fell back into hell forevermore. This is only a legend, and not a Jewish legend at that, but it illustrates so well the attitude of many people to the community at large. With them everything is "mine," "mine," "mine." "Ours" is not found in the dictionary of their lives. Yet by that very selfishness is the...

THE JEWISH SOUTH. A JOURNAL DEVOTED TO THE INTERESTS OF JUDAISM. PUBLISHBD "WEEKLY. HERBERT T EZEKIEL, Editor and Prop, 72? Sapt Main Street. Subscription, One Dollar per annum. Single Copy, Five Cents. Advertising Rate, 50 cents per Inch. Entered at the Post Office. Richmond, Va., as second ciass mail matter. The latest publication—" Sabbath Hours "— by the Jewish Publication Society, is perhaps one of the best, if not the best, of those which it has sent forth. It is a translation of Dr. Liebman Adler's series of sermons for Sabbath afternoon reading. It is an echo of the good old days, when the wife and mother in Israel sat down to her Sabbath reading in that afternoon's restful calm. Doubtless the fingers that tentatively turned the pages were gnarled and twisted, and the eyes that followed the fantastic type had doubtless looked upon the hardest and saddest of what life had -to offer. Yet on this afternoon these things were all swept aside. The jeers and taunts of the Christian...

The Spirit of the Jewish Press. While it is our sacred duty to honor and respect the dead, the lavish expenditure of money upon funerals and costly monuments is a great folly and should be done away with. It would be far more advisable to spend some of that money for the benefit of the living by contributing toward the support of charitable and educational institutions. By doing this the memory of our departed ones will be perpetuated in a far more noble manner, than by erecting expensive monuments in the cemeteries.— The Spectator. Some of our good Christian neighbors are begining to find out that the Parliment of Religions was a delusion and a snare. What, they ask, becomes of our pretence to be " the alone-saving church, " if we place ourselves on a par with other religious faiths. Tolerance is all very good, but it must not be carried too far. And then comes all kinds of bitterness against other creeds, and the re-assertion of Christianity's claim to all that is good on earth. B...

A Good Audience. The Rev. Lyman Beecher was once engaged to preach by way of exchange for a country minister, and the day proved to be very cold and stormy. It was midwinter, and the snow was piled in heaps all along the roads, so as to make the passage very difficult Still the doctor urged his horse through the drifts till he reached the church, put his horse into a abed and went in. As yet there was no person in the house, and after looking about he took his seat in the pulpit Soon the door opened, and a single individual walked np the aisle and took a seat The hour came for opening the service, but there were no more hearers. Whether to preach to such an audience or not was only a momentary question with Lyman Beecher. He felt that he had a duty to perform, and that he had no right to refuse to do it because one man only could reap tbe benefit, and accordingly he went through all the services, praying, singing, preaching and benediction, with one hearer. And when all was over he ...

A COMPARISON. A SERMON BY RABBI EDWARD N. CALISCH. Rivers of tears run down my eyes, that they have not kept Thy "law." (Psalm cx1x~136.) Doubtless the comparison, which I wish to mace this morning, has been anticipated by most ot yon, for it is so obvious that it almosc forces itself upon the notice of every one. It is one that is not new, yet none the less strong and forceful in its application. It is a comparison between the almost universal observance of the Christmas holiday, and tbe almost universal neglect of any festivities connected with a Jewish holiday. The Christmas season has become so vital a force ia all oar life's various avenues, that it is recognized in all of them. National and state governments adjourn because of it; public schools, colleges and academies give vacations, as also the courts of justice and the post office; the railroads and tbe express companies make preparations for a vastly increased traffic, while in the commercial world the Christmas season is ...

Shall we fail now ? No, friends, no! Let us dry the tears that flow. Let us cease the life that is false, artificial and unreal. Seize again the law of life, sound again the harp of the singer of Israel, and let us again be known by the power of the faith that is within us, and the strength of the spirit of God, and by His grace will we set the standard of true and spiritual life upon the highest ramparts of humanity. Amen. Israelite or Jew. - 'Thy name shall not be (any longer) called Jacob; Israel shall be thy name." (Genesis xxxv., 10.) This is a Bibical commandment as obligatory, at least, as the commandment in the same connection, "Therefore the children ol Israel eat not of the sinew which shrank, which is upon the hollow of the thigh, unto this day." Allo thodox Jews, since time immemorial, observe also the former, and call them selves Is.aelites instead of Jews. Almost everybody knows that we are not the sons of or children of Judah, the fourth son of Jacob, except our Sepha...

Jews at Harvard. Nrt many years ago there was scarce a Jew at Harvard College, to-day there are more than a hundred. While each Freshman class brings in a proportionately increasing number every year. The significance of this is not hard to discover, it is merely a proof of the increasing wealth and a desire for culture on the part of the American Jew, ever desirous to improve (his own condition and that of bis children. At first, accordingly, the students sent to Cambridge were hard-working diligent scholars, who realized fully the purpose for which they were sent, and did their best to take advantage of the educational opportunities extended to them. Soon, however, the young Hebrew discovered that the curriculum of the average college man by no means consisted of study alone, but that such matters as amusements, college societies, dress, etc., etc, entered largely into student life. Thanks to bis rather extensive means finding himself able to dress as well and dissipate as as much...

[Written for Thk Jewish South.] SABATHIA Z'VI, j s The False Messiah. f i An Historical Sketch by Rabbi 8. Horwitz, of Petersburg, Va. For the last two thousand years Israel in its deep Messianic yearnings has been again and again deceived by shrewd pseudo Messiahs, though a more thorough consideration and more earnest investigation would have easily undeceived them as to the claims of these po-litical-personal Messiahs. Still Israel, in spite of her many disappointments, with somewhat heroic patience continues waiting and hoping, wishing and praying for a realization of the prophets' promise. From the greater of these imposters that stained the pages of our history, let us pick out one, who in a most cowardly manner, and more shrewdly than all his predecessors played the partof a Messiah. Sabatbia Z'vi was a contemporary of his antipode aud coreligionist Baruch Benedict Spinoza. While the former was admired and idolized for a long time by almost entire Judiasm, the great thinker of...
