Mr. Bcniiunin Nathan mtis one of the
most prominent, wealthy, publio-pirited
and best beloved of our Jewish citizens.
Yearn ago he amassed an immense fortune
in Wall street, a. id for some time past has
been practically out of business. No man
was more unselfish, more generous in
charity than he, and none worked more
Indefatlgably in all good works. Ilispurso
and tlino wero equally at the service of the
needy, and organized charities had tho
benefit of both, and also of his admirable
administrative ability. He was almost thc
creator of tlio Mount Sinai Hospital, and to
His management as its President was
largely due tho great service which (hat
excellent institution has rendered human
ity. In his time, in many ways( he has
given away to this and other elecmonsy
nary institutions a large fortune, estimated
at SmOO.OOO, and his charity was all absorb

faith or race, but readied mid lightened
the loads of men of all creeds and lineage.
