It ia not an nnfreqneut ocenrrence
that I am asked which of the three ap
pellntiona given to onr people, Hebrew,
Israelite or Jew, be the more correct or
acceptable. 1 have 110 doubt that one
or the other among you have had similar
questions to answer, nor that yon ex
perienced some difficulty in shaping
your reply. In books, jwriodlcals anil
daily papers, in pnlillc meetings anil
private conversations, these words itro
used either indiscriminately or with an
apparent donbt as to whether or not one
or the other wonld be preferable, or per
haps objectionable. In order to form n
correct opinion it would appear neces
sary to have some knowledge of tlm
etymology, origin mid former usage of
Hebrew in our unwed tonorue called
"Ibri" Is derived from "nvar" "to
cross," "come over." It was lirnt applied
by the ancient inhabitants of Puli-stine
to the family of our ancrstor Abraham,
who, migrating from Mesopotamia to
Palestine, had to crotui or pum over the
river Euphrates. It was the mime lit
which the Jews were known to fureign
crs in nncient days. Thus .liwepli is
spoken of by the Eyptianx, mid Intro
duced himself to them ns 011 ,-Ibii" or
"Hebrew." Miriam auks Pharaoh's
daughter whether Rhe should go and call
a "Hebrew" woman. Moses speak to
Pharaoh of the "God of the Hebrews."
and the Prophet Jimuh tells the heathen
mariners, "I am a Hebrew."
The second term, "Israel," "Israelite."
Is to be traced to the story of Jacob
wrestling with a mysterious being at
"Penlel," when he was told. "Thy name
shall be called no more Jacob, but
Israel," that is. "striving with Mod.
victorious in Ood," or, as Uesendu
translates, "soldier (or champion) of
Thus the term Israel or Israelite point
to the mission of the children of our
race to wrestle with or battle against
any forces hostile to their sacred trust,
at the same timo foreshadowing their
final Uitimp and victory.
The name "Israel" became the na
tional name of the twelve tribes collec
tively. Later, after the division of the
kingdom nqder Jeroboam, the name ap
plied only to the teu seceding tribe
forming the northern kingdom, known
as the kingdom of ' Israel, in contradis
tinction to the southern kingdom, con
listing chiefly of the tribes of Jndah,
Benjamin and Levi. After the destruc
tion of the ten tribe kingdom we find
the old name Israel again used to desig
nate the people of the kingdom of Ju-
uah, and tbo name "Israel collectively,
and "Israelite" individually, has to this
day remained in common usage.
The third appellation, "Jehndi" or
"Jew," originates in the name given by
Jacob a wife, Leah, to her fourth son
"Judah" or "Jeliudah," meaning praise
or thanks to Ood. For at his birth the
mother exclaimed, "This time I will
give thanks unto the Lord!" The name
was worthily borne by the noble and
sturdy son of Jacob, whose record
throughout is without stain or blemish.
The tribe of Juduh, named after hiin,
was the most numerous, enterprising
and valiant among all the tribes of
Israel. During the inarch threugb the
desert Jndah a place waa In the van oi
The traditional standard of the tribe
waa lion's whelp, with the words,
"Arise, O Lord, and let thine enemies
be scattered." Later the name "Jehndi,"
or "Jew," was applied to member of
the kingdom of Judah (alter the separa
tion of the kingdom of Israel), even to
those aot of the tribe of Jndah, proof of
which we find In the fact that in the
book of Esther Mordacai, though of the
tribe of Benjamin, U called "Ish John
di." "Jehudi" or "Jew." After the re
turn from the Babylonian captivity all
the members of the new state were
called Jehndim, Jews or Jndeana, the
name being extended to the remnanta of
the people scattered throughout the na
So much as to the etymology and his
torical significance of the names "He
brew," "Israelite" and "Jew." From it
it appears that among the three the
first, "Hebrew," la the most ancient and
remote. And as in ancient days, by it
the Jew was distinguished from for
eigners, so today it would appear that
in order to point out anything distinc
tively Jewish the word Hebrew is more
properly applied. Thus we speak of a

Hebrew melodies, etc. Otherwise the
appellations Israelite and Jew, or Israel
iUsh and Jewish, are more frequently
employed as more expressive and char
acteristic in their meaning and impor
tant in history.
Of the two the former is a name of
honorable distinction, referring to the
divine calling of Israel, the spiritual
combat of truth against falsehood, of
light against darkness, in which our
people were enlisted as a nation, in
which they were soil engaged when,
with the fall of Jerusalem and the de
struction of the temple, they ceased to
be a nation, and which will not termi
nate until, in the fullness of time, God'a
lighi. and truth will finally triumph.

According to the statements of the
English naturalist. Professor Stirling,
there are in existence today upward of
fifty species of fishes having more or less
apecialixed organs, the function of which
is the generation of electric discharges.
The fishes differ widely, sometimes
strikingly, from each other, belonging
mostly to different families, and oc
casionally even to different orders of the
'Pisces. In structure they closely re
semble the other species of the genera
to which they severally belong, differ
ing from them, with an occasional ex
ception, mainly in the possession of or
gans for electric generation.
The well known "electric rays," for
example, of which Nicholson mentions
three and Onnther six, are the most
prominent. These rays are found in tho
Atlantic and Indian oceans and the
Mediterranean sea, and are seen in the
English channel, or even farther north;
while other electrio fishes are still more
cosmoolitan, though most of them in
habit limited areas and warm waters.
