dancing parties are interspersed with songs, recita tions, etc., for the amusement of elders of the family, who sit around tables, socially sipping their coffee, wine, or other favorite beverage, while the younger members glide over the waxed floors to fitful strains of music. Here the young must make the best of their opportunities, for when it pleases the parents to seek the quiet solace of the house the daughters also quit the gaiety of the ball-room. — Philadelphia Times.

Zangwill in Harper's: " The world by this time is pretty well acquainted with the story of Zangwill's early struggles as the pupil-teacher of an elementary school whilst he worked hard in the evenings for his degree at the London Uni versity, which he took at twenty with triple honors. " His first poem was published by a fellow-teacher. In order to decrease the expense of bringing it out the fellow-teacher determined to act as amateur bill poster...

Mr. Broughton, who is doing evangelical work in Atlanta, commented adversely upon the fact that non-Christians and even Jews sang in the church choirs of that city. The Jewish Tribune of Atlanta replied very harshly to the criticism, using expressions which, no matter the provocation, should never be applied to a minister of any denomination. Mr. Broughton retaliated in kind on Sunday last in a "sermon " to 10,000 people in the Moody taber nacle. So severe was he that the Constitution headed its report with the lines: "Swings His Lash With Wide Sweep—Dr. Broughton Waxes Red Hot and Gets on His Tip-Toes —Spouts a Steamy Sermon," etc. In the course of his...

ment to our neighbors, and we do not care to give them ground upon which to stand. The cert monies to which we allude are well known to our older readers, though but little practiced in these days. If any of our friends can inform us if the customs are not indigenous to certain European localities, rather than to Judaism, we shall be obliged to them. As was expected, President Cleveland, on Tuesday last, vetoed the immigration bill. This was the meas ure that was aimed at the Russian Jews, and would have wrought wrongs as great as any ever perpe trated by slavery in breaking up families. Such an act on his part was a fit ending to his offi cial career, and by so doing he has placed the Jews, not only of this country but of the world, under last ing obligations. There is grim justice in the fact that the Greek soldiers who are charged by the Turkish governor of Crete with mutilating Mohammedan children belong to the same church as those Russians who have so often made the like false ...

The Rabbi's Mistake. NY M. H. He surely admired her, so everybody said ; for surely he would not wish to mislead one of his flock by seri ous attentions without serious intentions; and did not anyone who called at her home meet him there, afternoon or evening, and especially on all festive occasions, which really occurred cpiite often, "to give him an excuse to come," some spiteful ladies remarked. Rut you might very properly ask: "Who is 'he,' and who is meant by ' her? " Well, he was the rabbi, a bachelor who, every one said, needed a strong-m nded, sensible woman to take him in hand and teach him a little worldly wisdom. To" look at him, short of stature, slight of build, with earnest student face, broad forehead, from which the reddish-brown hair was receding, alas, too rapidly, you would at once decide him to be one of those guile less souls who fall so readily into the clutches of the first woman that has designs upon them. As a body-guard and stern monitor, however, kind Fate...

" " My dear Miss Simon, I surely have not been mis taken in you after our close friendship of years. Did I not know the goodness of your heart, how could I dare come to you for assistance in winning your cousin's heart? You are near and rear'to her, and can prepare her for the avowal I wish to make. In so short a time, my heart has melted in the fire of her glances. My soul trembles for fear I lose her. Help me to win her, I implore you."

This great man died in 1055, was buried before the of Elvira, in Grenada, and a magnificent monu ment was erected to his memory. His picture can be seen at Malaga. It would be hard for anyone to de tect his Jewish lineage. Abu Hussan Joseph Nagrela was a worthy succes sor of the honors and titles of his father. Even all the Arab poets sang his praises: "Greet his countenance, for in it thou wilt find happiness and hope." He resembled very much his father. Solomon Ibn Gabirol was a great poet, whose poems, full of fire, lament the lot of Israel. " Where fore does the slave rule over the son of the princt ? My exile has already lasted a thousand years. Where is the high priest who will discover to me the end of it all ?" he sang. This poet died in the latter part of the .seventeenth century, and his picture hangs in the gallery of a Spanish nobleman in Valencia. It is re lated that an Arab fellow-poet slew him out of envy, because of Gabirol's masterly power of song. Jehuda ben Samuel...

Herr Rischitz was born in 1811 in Sierbogard, Hungary. He was a wholesale mer chant and proprietor, and held a high position in commercial circles. In 1895 the Emperor-King Francis Joseph granted him the Hungarian nobility. The funeral was marked by a demonstration of sympathy in which all sections, Jews and Chris tians, participated. Oberrabbiner Lazarr Low, in Ung var,has received from the Emperor- King the gold cross of merit with the crown in recognition of his val uable public work. Now that the anti-Semitic party has gained the majority in the Land tag of Lower Austria, as well as in the Municipal Council of Vienna, a blow has been aimed at the teachers holding free opinions. The school board of the Vienna district decreed that all teachers in the elementary and upper schools, numbering some 800, be asked to resign on the first o...

HER OLD SLAVE AIDED HER. Two members from Mississippi were swapping s'torics during the intervals between re r reshments, when, in an accidental way, the name of ex-Senator Blanche K. Bruce, was mentioned. "That reminds me," said one, "of a story told me a long time ago by a barkeeper at the Kbbitt. I was in there one day when Bruce came in, went into one of the side rooms, and, having been served, walked out without saying anything to any one. '"You don't draw the color line here, John,' I re marked to the barkeeper, '"Not on that man, sir, I don't,' was the reply. 'I have had a pretty good opinion of him since a little thing that happened soon after he first came here. '"Bruce was in his seat at the Capitol one day. when a card was broug it to him. He read it and nt once when out to the waiting room. There lie met the woman who owned him when he was a slave. With her was her daughter. Both were in tears.

CZAR AND RABBI. J T WAS IN 1840. The Czar Nicholas inspected the * troops stationed in the western provinces and in I'oland, and on that occasion paid a visit to the city of Homel, in the government of Mohilew. Generals Rodinger and Baron Offenlwrg were in command of the troops. The C/.ar was no friend of public demon strations, and did not care to have the civic authori ties go to the expense of arranging great fetes. lie usually remained two or three days in those cites whe ehe held these inspections. At an early hour in the morning he coul i be seen at the head of his troops, galloping to the parade ground, where he took com mand himself. When the day's labors were over he preferred to take a quiet stroll outside of the city, clad in the uniform of a simple officer, without even being accompanied by an adjutant. He seemed to enjoy these lonely promenades, indulging in deep reverie, he, the man, feared by everybody, but unrecognized. Ivven in Warsaw, where the revolutionary spirit...

Are you really ignorant of who lam ? " " I don't know ; I take you to be an officer, perhaps a colonel." "Not well guessed, rabbi," said the Czar, hardly able to restrain a laugh. " I am more thanacolonel."* " Perhaps a general," exclaimed the rabbi, excited ly, retracing his steps and touching his hat. " More than a general." " Perhaps Rodinger? " And without waiting for an answer he stepped further back, took his hat off and bowed deep, because he doubted not that he was in the presence of that mighty dignitary. " More than Rodinger," laughed the Czar, with out taking his eyes off the Jew. "Then," stammered the Jew, almost palsied with fright, "you must be Prince Paskiewitch!" " More than Prince Paskiewitch, rabbi." Speechless, and in pangs of horror, the rabbi held the hat in his hand; trembling all over, he loo...

THE NUMBER SEVEN. Vi\IIE number seven is one of the most singular of * all the digits, and the part that it plays in ancient, popular and natural history is surprising to one Who has never known the facts. For instance, among the Babylonians the god of the number seven received peculiar honor, and when the Chaldean Noah had escaped from the deluge his first act was to build an altar and set seven vessels on as many fires. The famous Chaldean witch had to bt sub dued by being bound with a cord tied with 7x7 magic knots. And a sick man had to be anointe 1 seven times with purifying oil. In the Chaldean scriptures the deluge lasted seven days, the gates of Hades were seven in number, and seven fish-like men were said to have ascended out of the Persian Gulf to teach the arts to the antediluvian Babylonians. In the ancient theory of mystical numbers, from which so many of our lucky signs are derived, four was significant of natural and three 01 the spiritual world, .and one of the old o...
