Jerusalem Burial Customs. I hiring mv long residence in Jerusalem I never became reconciled to the Oriental method of conducting funerali. I never saw one without feeling in a degree shocked at the haste with which the body, al er he breath had left it, was taken to the grate, W"U*«* lamentable lack of quiet and order which attended tic barial Mv previous ideas of BKWkratiofl,«•_ lh , d / ad , were wholly at variance with what I saw or heard At such times, we (i. c.. Americans) arc Slow and sedate in all our movements; the Oriental is quick and hasty. After death we wait a considerable time before burying; the Oriental buries as soon JIS possible. We are quiet in our expression of grief, while the Oriental is loud and boisterous. If for example, a person dies in the early part ot the night, he is buried as early the following morn. lag as possible. If a person .lies before daybreak, he is buried before noon, although occasionally there is a delay till afternoon. If a person dies in ...

faint voices said it was not right, but the only vigor* otis and effective protest was from a high-minded Catholic who had resided twelve years in England and had there learned something of liberty of action and what the saeredness of burial places meant, lie was so eloquent in hit denunciations of this outrageous sacrilege that the high officials of that Church Stopped their work of desecrating graves. This man had a true Lutheran soul, and the few Protestants who were cognizant of the facts wondered at his boldness.

It is a fact of some significance that not a single American was killed or wounded in the shooting by the sheriff and his deputies near Hazleton, Pa., on Friday last, upon which occasion about twenty men were killed and sonic fifty more injured. There is no necessity for going into the whys and wherefores of the event. Sufficient it is to say that whether a peaceable or unlawful body the striking miners were on an illegal errand, that of persuading a number of other men, by force, if necessary, to quit work. Their inarching in a body was of itself an infraction of the law. When met by the she...

Roman historians, such as Herodotus, Strabro, Mutianus, and Pliny, and repeated in monkish legends, or portrayed in the maps of the middle ages, which agreed with the folk lore of the district. These tales explained that the canal dug by the ancient Israelite served to carry the surplus waters of the Nile into an extensive lake lying south of the Fayourn, and so large that it not only modified the climate, tempering the arid winds of the desert and converting them into the balmy airs which nourished the vines and olives into a fullness and fragrance unknown in any other part of the country, but I also added to the food supply of the land such immense quantities of fish that the royal prerogative of the right of piscary at the great weir Iwas valued at £250,000 annually. This lake was said to be 450 miles round, and to be navigated by a fleet of vessels, and the whole circumference was the scene of industry and prosperity.— Engineering. <3ot _bern 3Botb.

grams were received from absent friends. •The presents were both numerous and handsome. We join with their friends in congratulations and wishing happiness and prosperity to the newly wedded couple in their future life. Bbtdon'e fftrdt .iCm Chech. Wizard Edison recently came over to New York from Menlo Park on business connected with some of his numerous enterprises, and while in town dined with a friend and the writer. During the dinner-hour the great electrician became conversational, and told in his quaint way the story of his first acquaintance with any large sum of money.' It was in the early seventies, when he was a young man struggling along with his inventions, and had no capitalists to back him. In fact, he had no bank account, and haidly knew what one was. Bank checks were things he had never had occasion to use and he had as much idea of their value apparently as the man in the moon. "I had," said Mr. Edison, "just sold my patent on the gold and stock indicator to the Wes...

Sunbag fleet. Of recent weeks a certain class of shopkeepers in New York and New Jersey who keep no Sabbath at 'all have been reminded that Sunday is the civil day of rest in this land. It is a pity that these traders have not yet learned the elementary lessons in citizenship, but must be taught by the police not to violate the civil laws. The civil statutes of both states are liberal enough. They forbid Sunday trading, but allow Seventh Day observers to keep open Sundays provided they do not disturb the public quiet. This qualification is ample in most instances, and even where some hardship does exist the average Jew is not inclined to protest. He knows that being in the minority, he must submit to certain inconveniences. Now, there aie some shopkeepers of whom a number are Jews, who wish to make all the money they can, and, observing no Sabbath at all, wish to utilize Sunday for trade while their competitors are at church or at home. Their conduct is not legitimate enterprise; it...

"Doth not wisdom cry, and understanding put forth her voice? " "By no kings reign and princes decree justice." "I lead in the way of righteousness in the midst r)f the paths of judgment." "Hear instruction and be wise and refuse it not." " For whoso findeth me lindeth life, and shall obtain favor of the Lord." "But he that sinneth against me wrongeth his own soul: all they that hate me love death." — Prov. Science confirms the words of the great preacher. Those that will not obey the law of the Lord literally bring disease and death upon themselves and those that shall come after them. American statistics show that there has been a deterioration in the physical well-being of those who have thoughelessly thrown aside the dietary restraints of God's law. In whatever way we may have erred, we stand now at a new mile post on the road to eternity, and let us rectify our ways and strive to bring them into conformity with the behests of the Living God. In our prayer for wisdom let us not f...

spiritual synagogue. lie spoke of the support given to other communal institutions, but dclared the synagogue must be first, all others secondary. " Secondly, the community should live up to its ideals. We dare not as a community condone evil or hide wrong, or cover up fraud, simply because it has been done by one of us. No man shall escape the merited recompense of his deeds through the connivance of friends. It is contrary to all the spirit of our faith, which pi rices justice, and justice only, as the keystone of civilization's arch." Rabbi Calisch referred to the fact that the synagogue of England had refused to take any contribution from, and had finally expelled from its membership, the great English money lender, Isaac Gordon, " for by his dealings he had offended Jewish morality." The law-giver had said that "even from the altar of God" should the malefactor be dragged to receive his punishment. "We can't help a man being born in the Jewish faith," said the rabbi, "but we ca...

>ctor leaned against the head of the bed. He was big-brained large hearted Irishman, a Roman Caolic. The husband looked on him in frantic interrogation. " You are not too late," said the doctor. " Thank God," said the atheist. " Betsy, old girl, :re is a clergyman." The cloud seemed to pass off the ashen face, and a aye of wan sunlight to traverse it; slowly the eyes icned, the hands withdrew themselves from the lildren's grasp, and the palms met for prayer.

It mist be conceded by all that Rabbi Galischwas right in his sermon on Monday last when he commented adversely upon the fact that of the seventeen young men who have recently joined the Jefferson Club scarcely a single one contributes to or even attends the synagogue. The rabbi does not oppose the club in the abstract as many Christian ministers do, but takes the high ground that it and all other communal institutions must be subordinate to the synagogue. By his own. action he demonstrates that he does not disapprove of a reasonable attendance Upon the club at the proper time. That proper time is not while service...

At the time of his father's death Judah Touro was only eight years old, and when his mothtr died he had just reached his twelfth year, so that his care and education devolved upon his mother's brother, a son of Michael Moses Hays, of Boston, in whose counting room he was reared. He remained in Boston until 1802, when he went to New Orleans, where he became a prosperous merchant, and owing to his honesty, thrift, and industry, he acquired great wealth. He volunteered in the American army in the War of 1812 under the command of General Andrew Jackson. When the British marched against New Orleans January 8, 1815, Judah Touro volunteered as a common soldier. He aided in carrying shot and shell from a magazine to a battery, and while engaged in this service he was severely wounded by being struck in the thigh with a twelve-pound shot. Mr. R. A.
