SWIiDEI, A literary distinction of the rarest kind, and one that every Jew will note with pardonable pride, has just been accorded to a Swedish co religionist. At the last sitting of tbe Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences at Stockholm, the first prize of the institute, its large gold medal, was conferred updh Dr.

Karl Warburg Librarian of the Museum of Gothenburg for his historico-literory Study, The Life and Works of Olof vou.Dalin." The honor is the greater, as since the year 1856, when Professor Ljnggren received the distinction, the Royal Swedish Academy has not crowned with its first prize a single work of the many brought under its notice. A Committee lias nlready been formed, with tlio Kev. L. N'uri inheri! asCbairruan, the other memherB heinp IS. Wertlioimer anil S.

Nuremberg, who takes a great interest in tiie movement, at great length on the proposed enterprise at the last meeting, and stated that he was one of those who were present and spoke at the first meeting to consider the building ol the fiimr-islnng Foster Home, in Philadelphia. It is to be hoped that this charitable enterprise will be crowned with success.

The Rev. Dr. Myer has gathered five hundred dollars for the aid of the German sufferers by the flood, and was pprsent at a meeting held at the Turner Hall, in Pittsburg, convened by the German residents in Pittsburg and Alleghany, for the express purpose of aiding their distressed brethren in the Fatherland. I think it right to mention this, and it is a lesson which should teach all those who hold Anti-Semitic doctrines to take notice that all the German Jews in this country still remember the Fatherland, and always come forward to aid their countrymen in time of trouble and dialrebs.

Hi" popularity, and I think the success of modern ministers iB partly due to their conciseness. The coming more immediately to the noint. Divines of the century often labored to be dull, spending a great deal of time in proving what was self-evident. We like those BermonB least which are incumbered with scholastic and learned Quotations, and always keeping insight some lesson ot piety to be inculcated. A sermon which enforces one grand point or illustrates some beautiful truth in a directand simple way, is the most acceptable.

Although the sacred writings should be the ground work of all pulpit productions, there is a freshness when tbe utterances are taken from daily or local occurrences. Therefore the minister of to dny studies science and the human system as well as the Scriptures; hence, less picturesque dis- i.iy ot Heaven and Hell, and more talk of and Spencer than the coming of the Messiah.

8. FALK, OF BUFFALO, Ji. V. Concerted action against the public nui sance of Jewish traveling mendicrnts or, to call the child by its right name, timer- ant schnorrerx becomes more and more an imperative duty Jewish co minuniticsowe to themselves. It uasalways been a nuisance, but of late it has grown into a Bcourge, which tries the patience and overtaxes the time of the tlficers of Hebrew relief associations, drains their treasuries, which are mainly and generously supplied for the assistance of the home poor, and jeopardizes their very existence.

These bodies could far more effectually care for the needy in their immediate vicinity were it not ior the transient in most cases unde serving beggars that infest cities and villages, especially ttiose situated on tne truuk lines. The scum of the Russian refugees those who do not want to work, and those who, doubtless, have been schnorrers at home already have swelled, this winter, the numucr oi ttiose wuo habitually prefer to live by the sweat of other people's brows. Where, in former years, two or three per day arrived, now a dozen come, and besiege the office or store ot the president and treasurer, inns we are confronted with a social evil, the abatement of which is a serious problem. One city alone is powerless to cope with it. Energetic steps have to be taken simultaneously by all, or most, of the ielief organizations in Ihe whole country.

Concerted action by all concerned may at least diminish this evil, if a total suppression should not succeed. Be it lar from us to advocate a measure which would reconnizij no poor traveler, whoBoever he may be. It would be hard, yea, impossible, to be carried out. Such a sweeping measure would do more harm than good. No rule without an exception.

Inviting public discussion and suggesting intercommu nication between the various benevolent associations on this burning question, we start from tlie following reasons, which are incontestible truths: 1. We know from experience and obser vation that every Jewish community, large or small, is benevolent enough and ever willing to assist or support worthy poor livina in the midst oi it. This wil lingness springs not only from a sense of humanitarian du'y, to which religion gives the strongest impuiso, but also from a keen sense of honor; aud ut no time was the charitable inclination, with which the Israelite is proverbially credited, more lucidly shining out than within the last fifteen months in tins country ot oui-e. We are confident that no Israeli's who 19 able to help will reluee to bestow chanty even to unwurlhy poor, when utter destitu tion stares in his lace, in our loog prac tice in this "lucrative field" with some ministers it is a specialty we can not recollect one case where an applicant from abroad eet up tlio plea of having been neglected by his co religionists, and thus indirectly forced to seek assistance away from home. Since every Jewish commu nity in America at least sufficiently provides for the home poor, no one, who has yet a particle of sell-respect left, is excusable for starting on a begging expedi tion through the country.

The Jews have always taken a pride in takiug care of their own poor, at great sacrifices, in order not to degrade their brethren in faith lo pauperism, iieuce," wnosoever conducts himself well and tries his best to earn his dally bread, will soon be favorably known 10icre he lives, and, if at all compelled to apply for charity, comes well recom mended, so mat nis petition ior renei win not be rejected. The actual help accorded to him at home is of more worth and leBs humiliating than the mites which he gathers abroad, but from which he brings very little home. And why? Because a second weighty reason for checking this nuisance is the fact that the greatest part, if not ail, of the assistance granted to itinerant beggars does them no good, inasmuch as it is absorbed in traveling expenses. Tbe railway companies get it. We will not say much about the countless instances where the recipients prove to b-; imposters, rude ingrates or shiftless individuals that leave just as destitute as they arrive.

incidents occur sometimes in this line of human industry." It is not infrequent that deaf and mute is played for the sake of exciting pity; and, strange to say, a coin dropped behind such an unfortunate's back usually restores instantly his articulate, audible speech. It beats "shrine cures." A year ago we had two such imposters arrested. But is it not time to try a combined eff jrt against this scourge? Half of the money which ia annually swallowed, if devoted to agricultural or colonizing projects, how much truly and lasting good could be accomplished thereby? We shall advance in our next article some practical suggestions. to be continued.

Tins book purport I to be a compact narrative Hebrew hlstor from 36 vears before until 7ft years after the Christian era period of time covering events of the greatest Importance in tbelr hearing on our present civilization. The fact that the author la a Jewish Rabbi would lead us te-espeet. in the work, evidence of familiarity witk Jewish history, and, for the most part, the reader will not be disappointed In this expectation. rVpatn: This tame fact would lead us to expec that those events relating to Jesun of Nazarethy and the origin of Christianity, would be Inter prctcd according toJewieh notions and proi dices; and in this respect, aain, the reader wilWiot bet-disappointed.

American Hebrew, The period of which this book treats Is the mom lmportaut in the history of the Jewish race as regards its development and world-miBsIon. Tea return from the Babylonian exile, the hierarchy of the High priests, the Egyptian and Syrian domination, tbe Maccabssan war, the establishment of national independence, the growth an (5 development of Jewisn loro, the rise of Gnosticism, of Christianity and the dispersion of the Hebrews far and wide among the natives of the earth with the fall of their nationality; such are tin-events and movements which crowd upon eacb other in this period with hastening foot. As tbe author himself saya iu his preface, ha-has preferred to write the history of the interior development of tbe people to an elaborate account of its wars, we are prepared for the minuteness and fullness with which the rellglo-llterary culture of the Hebrews is described. While we can not at once receive as unquestioned and unquestlons ble, certain hypotheses which are from time to time put forth in the work, such as the Identification of that discordant figure, "Acher," with Paul the Evangelist, yet critical acumen is discernible In every page. It Is, on the whole, a book entitled to rank with tho best production! of our brethren beyond the ocean, and a very creditable testimony to American scholarship.

Jewish. Advocate: While acknowledging hia Indebtedness to PrI-deaux, Raphall, Mlhnau, and other writers on thlo- Berlodof history, tho author claims that this tfr ie first book of tho kind written from "a democratic, free aud purely scientific standpoint, without referenco to political or religious preferences and considerations; also without any mysticism supernatural ism to tincture the facts." It 1 undoubtedly a plain, matter-of-fact history, dealing with the lifo of the people and describing in clear, perspicuous stylo their growth in politic and civilization. It Is no dry record of battles and court life, but a geuuina narrative of tho history of the nation in Its every-day life, with a clear in-light Into the principles, religious and political, which influenced them and bore fruit in popular Movements hitherto generally misunderstood. The arrangement of the work merits especial commendation. Its division into periods and chapters, and sub-division into paragraphs, with capital head-lines to each, renders it convenient for reference to the student as well as the ordinary reader.

KOlMAPtlA. The emigration of JeB from Koumnnia is proceeding at an unprecedented rate. At the same time the attitude of the authorities is becoming harsher from day to day. A restrictive law has just been passed auecilog not the trading class ol Jews, but Jews serving in the army. By tine utw uii strangers are suoject iu mill tary service, but are incapable of promotion.

The term strangers." our reuders mnst be aware, is in Roumauia a covert term for Jews. Another law of recent enactment is to the effect that no Jewish trader unable to meet his liabilities is to be adjudged bankrupt, but is to be treated. as one obtaining money under false pre tenses, rnis law is evidently intended to lead to the exclusion of the Jews from all trade by imposing on them such condi tions, under these circumstances it must be a source of satisfaction to see the Jews leave the country where their coudition is growing worse daily, and appears almost hopeless. A law has been passed in Roumauia prohibiting Jews from acting as factors to manufacturers and merchants. Hundreds of Jewish families have been thus de prived of their lireud.

A Jew named Ro- senzweig has recently been sentenced to two years' imprisonment and to pay a fine of 1,000 francs for transgressing the law in question. M. Maperhofer, a Jewish banker at Jasy, recently had a law euit with a Christian in that city. In the course tlie pleadings he had occasion to contradict a statement advanced by the advocate of the other party, when he was assaulted by tbe advocate in open court. eor tins the Judges nncd mm forty trance.

This incident was made the subject of comment by the press, who laughed at the fact that the price of an assault on a Jewish banker is only forty francs! Jewhh nonet. We recently mentioned that on the strength of proposals in tavor of an emigration ol Jews to Mexico, nearly throe hundred Jewisn families residing in Kon-mania had expressed their readiness to settle in that Republic. The measures which the Mexican Government are prepared to adopt in tlie interests of Jewish settlers are extremely favorable in their nature, and may be briefly summed up as follows: The emigrant families will have tbe right of claiming the reimbursement of their traveling expenses. Land will be placed at ther disposal and they will be supplied with all the necessary agricultural implements. They will, in addition, be exempted during a period of ten years from every kind of impost.

They will receive the rights of citizens and will be nt liberty to, elect municipal functionaries irom among tneir body. Liberty ot con science is guaranteed, as the Republic does not recognize any State religion. The Jews could with safutv follow their re- religious practices and celebrate the ceremonies of their church, but not in the public thoroughfares, all processions being Sternberg's Opinion ot Steele's Grand American Art Journal.
