A sadder duty has never devolved upon us than that of chronicling the death of S. S. Nyburg, Grand Secretary of the Grand Lodge B'ne B'rith of this district. The sad event occurred in Baltimore last Friday evening, and will be sorrowfully heard by every member of the order of which he was so devoted a member. Men like Simon S. Nyburg are scarce these days. It was our privilege to have had a personal acquaintance with him, and never have we seen a truer man. A loving husband, an upright and honored citizen, he was as gentle as a woman, yet as unflinching as adamant in adhering to what he knew was right and just. The very manner of his death—dropping dead upon...

tion except one player raised up from making a billiard shot and said laconically, "He's after money." The suspicion with which converts to Judaism are regarded is not exactly in keeping with the record of the English society which is still converting ( ? ) Jews at about $35,000 per head. Our thanks are due the Congregation Beni Israel of Tarboro, N. C, for an invitation to attend the dedication of their new synagogue on Wednesday next. ' IT SHOULD BE OTHERWISE. Danville, Va., January 27, 1897. To the Editor ot The Jewish South: We were very much pleased to look upon the cheerful countenance of our old friend, The Jewish South, after an absence of five-months. Clothed, as it is, in an entirely new and fashionable garb, giving fair promise to its readers of furnishing interesting and instructive matter for their perusal, we wish it all manner of success in the future. May its mission be appreciated and fulfilled —that of causing the wisdom of Judaism to be more thoroughly inculcated ...

A CITY ON PAPER. C\) BROAD stone slab, encased in a wooden frame, £X has been added recently to the many relics of the Buffalo Historical Society commemorating one or another event in the history of the Niagara frontier. The slab is about five feet long by two in width, and in itself is not at all remarkable. It was probably quarried only a few miles from the spot where it now rests. The interesting thing about it, however, is that it is the corner-stone of a city that was never built, and that although it was laid with great ceremony, it never reached the site on which the proposed city was to stand. The inscription on the face of the slab recalls one of the most chimerical of the great land and colonizing schemes of the early part of the century. The inscription reads as follows, the first line being in Hebrew : Hear O Israel, the Lord is our Goil—the Lord is one. j i ABAKAI. , i i A eitv of refuse for the Jews.

announced himself as a "Judge in Israel," though without the slightest autority from any authorized body in the Hebrew church, and calmly proceeded to map out the destiny of the Jewish people. September 15, 1825, was the date selected by Major Noah for the founding of Ararat. So far he had secured a site for his city, and had provided himself with robes of office befitting the title of "Judge," which he had bestowed upon himself, and with a secretary. He had never visited the spot where the future glory of Israel was to shine, but early in this month of September he set out for the budding city of Buffalo, attended by his suite of one and with his robes of office packed carefully away in his box. It does not appear that any other Hebrew had anything to do with the founding of this Hebraic city. When Mordecai Manuel Noah, having journeyed across the State of New York in the primitive conveyances of the time, reached the town of Buffalo, he found its citizens considerably excited over...

not a rabbi acknowledged the authority of the "Supreme Judge" or paid the slightest attention to his enticing scheme. In a few days Major Noah himself returned to New York without having set foot on the island where his great city was to stand. He seems to have abandoned the scheme at once, nor does it appear that he ever tried to revive it. All that remained of the "City of Refuge" was the corner-stone, which for many years leaned against the rear wall of the church in which it had been laid with such elaborate ceremonies. Afterward it did duty as a horse-block for one of Buffalo's citizens for a time, and later, Mr. Lewii P. Allen, who had been familiar with Major Noah's scheme, removed it to his farm on Grand Island, where he had it placed in a small brick mnoument facing the river. There for many years travelers pointed out the monument as marking the site on which the city of Ararat had stood, forgetting that the stone was not placed there till all hope of building the city had...

[Written for The Jewish South.] A PERFECT FAITH. " Give ear, O God, to my prayer, and hide not thyself from my supplication."— Psalm lv, 2. Help me, O Lord, my footsteps guide, The path is rough, the road is dark ; Thy spirit let with me abide Till safe I rest before Thy ark. And should my soul grow weak and faint, Or should I sink beside the way, Do Thou lend ear to my complaint And help my feeble steps to stay. For not alone can moitals stand, All strength and hope must wait on Thee ; All gifts come only from Thy hand, 'Tis Thou alone from sin can free. Then turn our burdened hearts to Thee, And let Thy mercy on us rest; Oh ! help our finite eyes to see The love that's in our Father's breast. Though weeping lasteth but a nifjht, And joy awaiteth morning's dawn, We must be pure, must seek the light Ere clouds obscure and it be gone. Thy children, when Thou dost chastise, Must learn to bless the chastening rod, To trust Thy love c'en in disguise, To know and bless and serve their Go...

Mrs. I. M. Rosenbaum has been detained at home by sickness for some weeks. Mr. Henry Abram has returnd from an extended business trip through the South and West. Mr. Charles Straus has been indisposed for several weeks past to an extent that precluded his leaving the house. The Jefferson Club will give an old-time Purim ball this year for members and their families. The children will be given the floor from 8:30 to 10:30 o'clock, after which they will retire in favor of the grown people. ADVANTAGE OF HAVING A DAY AT HOME. Few of us realise the great demand on our time ami strength in fulfilling the arduous of paying and receiving calls. A set day at home insures the callers of a hearty welcome; a hostess dressed and prepared to receive callers. When the "head of the house" gives up one afternoon of each week to entertain her friends, they should be willing to come at that time or not expect to find one on any day, at any hour, ready and willing to have her busy life interrupted to s...

Single Copy, Five Cents Advertising Rate, 50 cents per inch. Kn tercel at the Post-Office. Richmond, Va , as second class matter. We have serious doubts as to whether the question of permitting or not permitting the burial in the Hebrew Cemetery of non-Jews who liave married into lewish families is worthy of the very weighty consideration being given it by the Board of Managers of that institution. To our mind it is the company a person keeps before death, not after, that is of importance. In taking this stand we are not forgetful of the sacredness attaching to the burying-ground in the minds of the greater portion of the Jewish people; but in these days, when cool judgment and common sense are supplanting religious prejudice, bigotry, and blind intolerance, the " I-am-holier-than-thou" belief is fas...

gregation left its old temple, the church was in turn used by them until the new one was ready for occupancy. There is something unique in the idea that a Jew, Alderman Joseph Hirsch, should have been the person to introduce in the Atlanta Council an ordinance providing that when Christmas is celebrated in that ■city it shall be in a rational manner. The religions Sjpapers of all denominatians, as well as the secular ■press, unanimously endorse the Alderman's course. Although Hon. Herman Myers failed of reelection to the mayoralty of Savannah, Ga., at the )*ecent contest in that city, three Jewish aldermen, Messrs. A. S. Guckenheimer, S. Krouskopf and A. L. Weil, were successful. THE JEW AS A WARRIOR. The Jewish nation became extinct at the beginning of the Christian era. Prior to that time, Biblical and post-Biblical records tell of Joshua, Saul, David, Sampson, Jeptha, Judah Maccabee, Bar Cochba and very many others who were great captains and mighty warriors. With the life of the...

JEWISH SURNAMES. JEWISH surnames may be roughly divided into names of Biblical, geographical, and generic origin, names of traders and of the animal, vegetable, and mineral kingdoms. The majority are without doubt Teutonic, and must be due to the early and long-continued settlements of Hebrews in various parts of Germany. At the beginning of this century, the position of Jews in many parts of Europe was greatly improved by the removal of irksome restrictions. Frederick William 111, King of Prussia, on March 11, 1812, promulgated a law which, among other things, provided for a census of those Jews who wished to be reckoned among citizens. The entries were made at a government office, where the head of the family had to attend, and give his name, and those of his family together with other details. To fulfil this requirement was a matter of difficulty with some Jews, as up to that date so many had been satisfied with first names only, being described as their fathers' sons, in accorda...

Of safety. Dutch geographical terms are Maas, Van Ryn, Bronkhorst, Van Noorden (in East Friesland), ■Van Minden, and Holland. Piza is an Italian town ■n Spanish garb. The origin of Lisbona is obvious. ■IVarschawsky, Berlinsky, Strelitskic, and Krakotski ■are place-names with Polish endings. Old Testament names are very numerous and common to many families totally unconnected with each other. Solomon in its numerous forms is freely used, appearing last year as Solomons, Solomon, Salaman, Salom, Salmon, Sloman and Soman. Samuel does not in the year undergo many changes, though occurring also as Samuels. Levi assumes forms innumerable: Levay, Levene, Levy, Leveson, Leviansky, Levien, Levine, Levey, Levinson, Levitt, De Leef, Leefsma, Lion, Leon, Lyon, Lyons, Lewis, Lewin, Lewy, Lowy, Lewie-, Louis, Lo wenstein. Many go by the name of Abraham, Abrahams, Abrahamson, Braham and Brahams, whilst Asher, Gabriel and Tobias (the Old Testament name of Tobijah has thus been Hellenized in the Apo...

artisan who, as a cobbler, sits on a three-legged stool, or to a pedlar, supporting his pack with the aid of a stick. (Familienndmen, Leipzig, 1853). It does not seem quite impossible that it is a corruption of Andrew, which is also found masquerading as Drewcs, Dreves, Dreefs and Dreis. Andrew also occurs as a first name in Dreiwie, which is not far removed phonetically from Dreifuss. Having regard, however, to the existence of Beyfus and Vierfuss, we prefer to consider Dreifuss as equivalent to threelegged. Thoroughly English names, quite indistinguishable from those borne by the general population, have been assumed by Moore, Giles, Grant, Scott, Byers, Campbell, and many others. Distinctly characteristic French surnames in our list are few. Cahen is of course a Gallic form of Cohen. Many names come from Poland, terminating in ski or sky, as Barczynsky, Koski, and Dworski (a member of a lord's or prince's household).

No Jew need make any apologies for his people. The Jews are and always have been a great people. They have blessed the world by giv- ; ing it a sacred literature which has done more than all other literature toward elevating and refining the Gentiles. They have shown mankind how to bear centuries of wicked persecution almost without a murmur, and have prospered where their envious neighbors have starved. When the Jew begins to apologize for his race he does it an injustice. He invites attack and stirs old prejudices against his people. The Jew is admired for what he is, Hot for what he says. When he begins to throw bouquets at himself he loses ground every time. However, this is true of any people. It is to be hoped that the Jew will toon be lost in the American citizen.
