scher An zeigey \n\n -of Galicia, which was to meet in- Lem Iberg on the 18th, 19th and 20th of this month. A union and consolidation of the Galician communities will do much good. We hope that by this time the “Schomer Israel” convention has been a great success. —A Jewish widow, Fanny Friedman by name, died at Burgkunstadt on the 18th of May, at the high age of about 110 years. She was born in poverty and has spent in poverty the long days of her life. For many years she was struck with blindness, and crouching upon her couch, she worried herself with the idea that God had forgotten about her. Up to her last day she had an excellent memory and a good appetite. The lat ter was amply satisfied by the benevo lence of her co-religionists. Austria and Hungary* —The Polish congregation of Vienna is about to erect a new synagogue. One of its members, Ephraim Spitzer by name, who had donated 8000 fl. for that purpose some time ago, has again shown his munificence by a new donation of 28000 fl. —An interesting and highly useful work is about to be published by the well-known bibliographer and publisher Oh.

This work will be issued in installments of six sheets each in royal-octavo size. All those whose mention is to be made in that work, are requested to send their names and a list of their literary productions to the abovesaid publisher. —Mr. Ignatz Barnay, the secretary of the Jewish Religionsgemeinde of Pesth, died on the 24th ult. His was an active and useful life. There was not a move ment going on for the elevation of his people, or for dispensation of charity, in which he was not head and foremost in the ranks. A great many institutions of learning and benevolence have been called into life by him. He was bom at Troponar in the year 1813, studied at Pesth and graduated in 1832. Since then his brilliant abilities and public spiritedness have made him known throughout Austria and Hungary. He has held offices of high distinction in his community and his influence was benefi cial in every position which he occupied. —It is a superstition amongst the more ignorant Jews of Hungary that the Serbs are descendants from Amalek. The origin of this idea is the Judaeopho bia, which has so long been a distinguish feature of the Serbian character. Switzerland. —The cantor of Gothenburg has pub lished a large work which contains 1,511 synagogical melodies well arranged to music. That work is divided in four volumes : for the week days, for the Sab bath, for the principal feasts and for the New-Years and|Atonement day. Besides the music, the work contains valuable references for Jewish Ministers, such as the forms of Kethuboth, Tenaim, a list of Jewish names, both male and female, etc., etc. The munificence of Mr. Mag nus of that city has assisted the author in the publication of this work. —Dr. Hermann, of Gothenburg, was elected professor of Hygiene of the “Karlinische Institute” of Stockholm. He was the only Jewish candidate among many others. France. —The Budget of the Jewish confes sion of Paris contains 14,600 fr. more for 1879 than it had for the current year.

Thus the state will contribute in the ensuing year toward the maintenance of the Jewish confes sion the sum total of 207,000 francs. —General See, who was commander in-chief of the regiment which has been appointed to do the honors to the Prin ces and representatives of all countries at the opening of the exposition at Paris, is a Jew\ Some of those European dig nitaries may therefrom draw a parallel between the high station which the Israelites occupy in France and the op pression which they underlie in their native lands. —There is a specific Jewish stall at the Paris Exposition. Mr. Strauss, a well known antiquarian, has on exhibi tion a collection of articles and -works of art, pertaining to Jewish synagogical and private life. Among others, there are in this collection two arks, a pulpit, ornaments for the scrolls of the Law, Chanucah chandeliers, Torah pointers Kiddush cups, spice boxes (used for habdalah), wedding rings, etc.—All these articles are of fine, artistic work manship and some of them are from the 16th, 15th, and even from the 13th cen tury. —The “Universe Israelite” enumerat ing the curiosities which are to be seen at the Exposition, says : “The foreigner will find here something which he has never seen at home : Three Jews as generals of the army, two Jew ish prefects, a Jew as presiding officer of the Cour-de-cassation (court of Ap peal,)— beside the many synagogues which Catholic municipalities have built and Jewish schools and Rabbinical sem inaries which are maintained by the Government.

Her despairing parents having applied to the authority of the Government that their child should be restored to them, have not yet obtained their just demand. —Another case of this kind has oc cured at the hospital of St. John, of Rome. A Jewish girl, Enrietto Calo by name, was baptised there while she was in a state of unconsciousness and did not know what was done with her. The “sisters of charity” have assisted the Priest of the capital in this great feat. —A fanatical priest conceived a desire to baptize a Jewish girl, a pupil of the public school at the small town of Ivree. The parents of the girl became aware of the abduction trap which was laid for their child, and sent her away from Ivree in time to save her from the “only soul-saving” church. —Amsterdam. The King of Hol land expressed himself in the following flattering terms to a Jewish deputation which had waited on him at Amsterdam : “My Jewish subjects are moral, honest, industrious and faithful citizens. They deserve perfect liberty and the full enjoyment of the rights of citizens. —Melbourne, (Australia.) Several Christian ladies of Melbourne have be come converted to Judaism and the Rabbins have accordingly accepted them into the creed. The community, how ever, is unwilling to admit them into the fold of the Jewish brotherhood, and there is a strife between the rabbins and their congregations. —Jerusalem. The congregation of Ashhenasim ( European Israelites ) is endeavoring to establish schools in which the Arabian language should regularly be instructed to Jewish children. They have sent in a petition to llabbin Samuel Salant of Jerusalem that he may sanc tion this measure.

About 150,000 piaster have already been collected. —Lionel H. Rosenthal, of Dublin, Ireland, is one of the most celebrated mathematicians. Says the Educational Times: “This is one of the Jewish pro fessions. In all ages Jews have been noted as magnificent mathematicians. Many a poor fellow has cursed Euclid and Archimedes first, and next Mayer Hirsch for his book of equations. Unger Gunz and Klaber, Slominsky and Stern, and a dozen more have taught that science in our days.” qurfilzaIm MAYER—CLAYBURGH.—Mr. Ben Mayer, of New York, to Miss Ida Clayburgh, of Chicago.

A.Christwann. Dr. Des-chauer is sufficient ly known as one of the best and most reliable dentists in this city. But as the junior partner of the firm is comparatively little known to the patrons of Dr. D., we deem it but a duty to say, that he is a very able and skilled dentist. Dr. Christmann graduated in ope of the best schools in this country, “The Missouri Dental College” of St. Louis, and as a student he has always been second to none. Drs. Deschauer and Christmann can thus meet the require ments of their patrons in all the branches of modern dentistry. pALENDAR^ OF J_,ODGES IN CHICAGO. District Grand Lodge No. 6, I. O. B. B.
