and particularly in the two latter, a
r thorough acquaintance with both the
k, theory and practical application of the
e science of nutumbersi wais manifested.
In their ex-rcises on the black board
there was no parrot-like repetition of
rule, but an intelligent application
ii of t he principles onl which rules are
I baeed. In this they bore testiiony
to the faithfulness and eiliciency of
their teacher, 'rare virtues in these

allowed for dinner, and the character

Facts About the Jews.
A late official statement as to the
present proportion of the Jewish to
the earth's population shows that in
Palestine the Israelites now form but
a small community. From there
they seem to have migrated to the
northern part of Africa and to the
region between the lower Danube and
the Baltic, in which it is estimated
there are about four inillioti Israel
ites. Everywhere the race is report
ed to be increasing. It is singular
to note how widely they are scattered,
and in what strange and ont-of-the.
way corners they have settled down.
Timubuctoo has a Jewish colony near
ly all merchants. The other Jews in
Africa ate the Falschas, or Abyasiau
black Jews, aid a few European Jews
at the Cape of Good 1lpo. There
are numerous Ifraelite colonies in
Yemen and Nedseran, in Western
Arabia. It has long been known
there are leraolites in Persia and in
the countries on the Euphrates. In
the Tuicoinan countries they inhabit
the four fortresses of Scherisebs,
Sobamatan, Kitab and Urta Kurgan,
and thirty small v-illages, residing in
a separate quarter, but treated on an
equal footing with the inhabitants,
though they hrve to pay higher taxes.
Theie are also Israelites in China
and Cochin China ; there are both
white and black Jews. The white
Jews haiv a tradition, according to
which their numbering 10,000, set
tied at Crauganore, on the coast at
Malabar, after the destruction of the
Temple, about the year A. D..79.
