"It ia better to give your child with a warm hand than with a cold hand;" hence the frequency of dowries. But dowries are a heavy task on a poor father, especially if his daughter la not comely, for "A pretty face Is half a dowry," so her advent la not hailed with joy; indeed, "Seven Seriousness and Fun In Dealing With. jsos prepare a chair for you in heaven, I seven daughters prepare a seat for you the Subject, of Poverty and Wealth- Jn heII Th,g )s the mf)re palnfui to Jewish Aphoristic References0 to j him, since "A eon after death, a daugh ter during life, 1. e., the eon will say i: Christians, Thero is not a people, whether civil ized or savage, that does not possess its tock of proverbs in whli'h the wisdom ; tif practical life is expressed, Natural j Jy, many of the sententious maxims of j, the various nations must coincide in meaning, whatever their mode of ex v pression. This is particularly true of s ine saws ot tne nations 01 Europe, where community of ideas and similar ity of customs have led to identical ex periences. Besides, the constant inter change of their oral and written litera tures has caused a continuous influx of foreign elements into the native pro verbs, eo that It is frequently diflleult to ascertain the original home of this j or that aphorism. The diiticulty is still greater when the adage ia transmuted by means of a homely garb and is giv en the appearance of spontaneous growth. The Jewish proverbs are subject to the same laws and, consequently, re flect the philosophy of the European nations, more particularly those among whom they live or have lived. The av erage popular morals of the Jews, as they betray themselves in these max ims, are neither better nor worse than thoee of the Germans, Kusslans, Poles, and they may ae well be .studied from the large collections of the German folk-lorists as from the slim lists of the Jewish writers on the subject. About the middle of the century Dukee made an anthology of rabbinical saws per petuated in the Jewish writings, and Tendlau expatiated at greater length on those current among the Jews of Ger many. In these writers and in the se lections of more modern times there is, after the reduction of the elements common to all the other nations, a cer tain residuum which is distinctly Jew ishthat ia, which is the outgrowth of pedal characteristics and in its en tirety cannot easily be reproduced else where. It is that part of the Jewish aphoris tic wisdom in which is reflected the Jew's conception of religion and rela tion of man to man, his view on mar ried life and his treatment of women and children, hi love of learning and praise of work, but also hia practical eense and admiration of wealth. There ade also many adages which tell of centuries of suffering, and almost the largest single division treats most es pecially with the blind alley of Jewish poverty. We find here the same themes that form the stock in trade of Judeo German literature, and even as there a pungent wit pervades the tragedy of life and heightens the dismal feeling superinduced by the self-abnegation and self-depreciation that runs through the mind of the humble Jew. It is with this aspect of his proverbs, as it mani fests itself in the collected eawe of the Eussiart and Galician ' Jew, that we ehall try to get acquainted now. God's ' justice Is frequently pro claimed, and man's relations to Him are to be gauged by hie actions to his fellow-men. "He who has no shame before men has no fear before God," yet "God punishes him whom he loves;" end with patent sarcasm, which freely mingles with his pious devotion, the Jew exclaims, "God will help, wish to God, God would help until God helps." In the meantime good-will to all men is the surest) key to heaven, and "Acts of kindness are dearer In the eyes of God than almsgiving." Many precepts enjoin strict honesty, for "Better a pain in the heart than a shame in the face," yet recognizing the general du plicity of man, we are not to trust im plicitly to appearances, but "Treat me like a rabbit and watch me like a thief." , Somehow the rabbi does not fare well in public opinion, which credits him with a greater number of foibles than is allotted to common mortals: "You may be able to stand a rabbi's eating and a horse's drinking, but it is not possible to tolerate a rabbi's drink ing and a horse's eating." It Is not only the rabbi, but the Jew in general of whom the Jew has no high opinion, for even "Moses could not get along with the Jews," and "a good Jew pre fers to take rather than give;" "with a Jew it is good to eat shalet, but not from the same dish," and "a Jewish evil eye is worse than Christian mag ic." In general, the Christian is to be preferred for all ordinary purposes of life: "Bette In the hands of the Gen tiles than in the mouths of the Jews." 'It is beet to live among Christians and die among Jews." Just as English fairy tales may begin with the words "Once upon a time there lived a king," so Jewish nursery stories commence with the sentence: "Once upon a time there lived a rabbi and his wife;" hence the proverb says; "A rabbi without a rabbi's wife is but half a story." This adage expresses the fundamental principle of the marital relations, on which the whole Jewish life Is based.1 Indeed, "a house without a housewife i a wagon without wheels," and though marriage does not always lead to happiness, "it is better to be a young widow than an old maid;" but the Jewish old maids are rare, for "a Jewish girl is never left." No wonder, then, that with the prone ness to marry again as soon as the wife is dead or has been divorced, divorces should be a frequent occurrence, though they are by no means looked upon with favor; hence, "better 'tis to tear the pa per (ot betroiiiiii) than the parchment (of marriage)." Yet when man and wife cannot agree, "it is 'better for four to be happy than for two to be misera ble," and thus the loophole for divorces is left wide open. Of his wife the Jew has a high opin ion, for "A wife puts one on his legs and pulls one down." and "A wife makes of her husband what she will," though he is conscious of her defects, of which talkativeness ip the most detest ed. Nor does he relish a desire for learning in a woman, since "A chicken that crows, a Gentile that speaks Yid dish and a Jewess that studies the law are a bnd lot." He loves his children tenderly, and prefers to aid them dur ing hie lifetime, which is enunciated in kadbh after the parents, which may be j the only obligation he will bear to his 'progenitors, while the daughter shows her affection as long as her parents live. He educates his children gently, for "A good boy needs no blows, a bad boy Is not helped by them;" yet too much lenience is not good for them, and "It is better for children to weep than for parents." Though he values learning highly, knowing that "A well-instructed Jew will always be able to help hlmealf," he values work even higher: "An artisan does not die of hunger." "Handicraft is the best coat of mail against pover ty," "An humble handicraft la also a handicraft," are some of the many maxims of this kind. If with all that he admires wealth, it is only because this is the only avenue for his ambi tion, and yet) "Jewish wealth is like March snow." In fact, nothing is per manent with the Jew but his poverty, and he takes especial delight tto be merry at his own want, though his heart be heavy. "Three men," he says, "sing from sorrow a Chazon, a beggar and a Badchen," or else, "When does a Jew sing? When he is hungry." Nor can a Jew well be rich, for "A Jew has only money to lose and time to be sick." And when In sickness he allows himself the luxury of a chicken, the chicken is equally afflicted, since "When a poor man eats a chicken he is sick or the chicken." Yet poor people are not only cheerful, but generous; "Poor people have good hearts," and "God rejoices when one beggar scratch es another." A beggar's joys are few: "A beggar is happy when he has lost and found again." He is long suffering, but "When does a beggar complain? When he has two weddings In one day," for he loses his chance of eating at one of them. The Jew's Rabelaisian humor finds vent in many sayings similar to the last'. "Barefoot a whole year and in socks on Tishe-be-ab" is an ironical il lustration of a poor man who, to show his sorrow at the fall of the temple, dons his eocks on that holiday which he could not afford to wear during the rest of the year. "When one is angry at the Chazon he does not make the re sponses of 'amen,' " Is a good pendant to spiting one's face by cutting oft the nose. An English proverb says that every dog has his day, but the Jewish adage is more explicit, and informs us of the precise time the dog has his day: "When has a dog his holiday? When he has broken his leg." Somewhat drastic is the following illustration of the ubiquity and universality of the Talmud: "In the holy Gemara you may find everything, even a shrivelled up bedbug." Those who have ever seen a Russian chedar will fully appreciate the truth of the statement. "Death," says another adage, "Is the only gratis thing, and yet it costs your life." Of death the Jew makes as light as he jsests with religion. "It is never too late to die," and "the angel of death cares not whether the dead man has his ehroud." Though filial affection, love to children and wife are frequently commented upon, the mere romantic love has but one representative, and even that smacks of utilitarianism; born of bitter experience: "Love Is sweet, but ie tastes better with bread." Humility Is encouraged and pride meets with stern reproach. "Pride Bleeps on a dunghill," but "the greater the gentleman the smaller he feels." Of family pride, so common among the Jews, the proverb says: "A genealogy In the memetery and tribulations at home," or "pearls on your neck and stones In your heart." Independence is (regarded as the highest good: "Better your own porridge than somebody else's roast meat," and one is warned of needless humbleness: "if you stoop too low they will step on your head." It must be noted that the proverb plays a more Important part In the every-day life of the Jew and Is more frequently made use of as an illustra tion by the raconteur than is the case with the nations whose languages are more generally used for literary pur poses. AVhole conversations and stories are often a string of maxims in their proper sequence. Jewish Comment. ular in this part of the town and doubt less the near future will find Madison with a well organized fire department. The E. C. Scran ton Memorial library will be opened on Thanksgiving day from 4 to 6 p. m. It is customary to have the library opened on holidays, but on this day many of Madison's "boys and girls" return home. The li brarian has kindly consented to be pres ent at those house, so that any who wish can view this beautiful building. TWO DIVORCES GRANTED. In the superior court, yesterday after noon two divorces were granted. A di vorce was granted to Rose Coslln from Michael Coslin, both of New Haven, the ground being desertion, Frederick Ktr chonsky was granted a divorce from Minnie Kirchonsky, both of Meriden, on the grounds of adultery.

Scranton Memorial library. Stimer's History of Guilford and Mad ison and a History of the Quinnipiack Indians have been presented to the li brary. On Monday evening the H. II. society will give a phonograph entertainment in the chapel. On Thanksgiving evening the Madi son cornet band will give their annual concert and dance In Memorial hall. The band has the reputation of always giv ing a good concert, and the one this year will not fall below the standard of excellence. At the monthly debate held by the Young Men's Improvement association on Wednesday evening the affirmative won, the question being: "Resolved, That the town should maintain a fire department necessary for its protec tion." At the debate to be held on De cember 19 the leading speakers will be W. D. Whedon, L. M. Royce, V. M. Wil cox and D. W. Ayer. The juniors of the Y. M. C. A. have formed two basketball teams known as the Crescents and Stars. At a game played b riday aiternoon the Crescents won by the score of 7 to 4. On Thanks giving day a picked team of juniors will play the senior team on the Association grounds near their rooms. F. C. Dowd and wife are spending a few days in New York city. Captain F. C. Crossley of Fair Ha ven is at his mother's, Mrs. C. P. Cross ley, on AVall street. Vincent M. Wilcox, one of F. C. Dowd's popular clerks, has returned from his vacation spent in Walcrtown and Hartford. A subscription paper is being passed around for the purpose of raising the necessary funds to purchase several hundred feet of hose to be used for fire protection. This movement is very pop- Slump lu Steel and Wire as a Danger .Signal. New York, Nov. 23 The slump in Steel and Wire of 4 1-4 points just at the close of the trading last evening was universally regarded as a danger signal. The speculative public came down to Wall street this morning in a mood receptive of suggestions ot de pression and reaction. The first sug gestion came in the form of a further break of 3 points in Steel and Wire. The sudden weakness of this stock did not raise any doubts of the reports hereto fore accepted of the prosperous condi tions in the trade and the excellent prospects for the future, but It did aroure serious apprehension of a deter mination on the part of some of the steel magnates to enter upon a course of slashing competition. The wide reaching effect of such an outbreak of hostilities in the steel trade may be measured by the degree of ap prehension exhibited by holders of long stock to-day. The eteel stocks them selves were most Immediately affected, but heavy declines are shown in almost every department of the stock list. The sharp effect produced was due in part of course to the extended speculative accounts held all through the market. The purpose of the bear maneouvre was palpably to dislodge these holdings, and it was successful. As the decline in prices extended, the offerings Increased. The local traction stocks, the grangers, the Pacifies and Baltimore and Ohio were the most prominent in the down ward movement. Sugar was freely sold on the cut of prices of refined sugar and suffee, which seemed to threaten a renewal of the trade war. But the stock was very feverish at all times. Practically the only effective resist ance offered to the decline was In the early dealings. New York Central and Chesapeake and Ohio showed continued strength at that time, New York Cen tral rising 1 S-8 over last night. An effort was also made to boom Amalga mated Copper on the occasion of its first being dealt In in the unlisted de partment of the exchange, but the first price, which was 99 1-2, was the high est. The price subsequently fell back to 97 5-?, compared with 98 1-8 In the curb market last night. The frequent rallies during the day, when room shorts were taking quick profits, showed the professional bear character of the attack on the market. But the buying demand seemed not to extend beyond the short Interest, and the market quickly lost animation on the rallies. The closing itself was wav ering and uncertain, but at considera bly above the lowest for many stocks. There was nothing In the money mar ket to cause apprehension, rates ruling at 3 1-2 per cent, or lower practically all day. The receipts of gold from the Pacific coast insures a good Increase In cash reserves for to-morrow's bank statement, although the net receipts from the interior on the express move ment show a considerable falling off from last week. An expansion in loans is expected on account of the speculative activity, but the easiness of the money market Is evidence that the position of the banks Is not materially weakened. There were firm spots in the bond market, but railroad bonds as a whole were affected by sympathy with the re actionary movement In stocks. Total sales, par value, $2,445,000. United States threes registered ad vanced 3-4 and the coupon and the fives 1-2, the old fours 3-8, new fours 1-4 and the refunding twos when Issued 1-8 pet cent, on the last call.
