Eighteen years ago, a Jewish wom an, Mrs. I j. V. Benoit, of Cliicugo, worked out tlie idea of the cord tiro I for automobile, and sold it to a mau factnrer, thus implanting the seed of i u i, *'t industry-. A garment protec-j toi 01 . berized material for children, 1 Mrs. Benoit’s next venture .in IHOH. All mothers are familiar with ' romper that the small child finds so comfortable. This was patented in Mrs. Benoit's own name. hi 1011 there was evolved in this same fertile brain a plan for co-operative building —an “own your own llat" proposition that readied practical expression in New York and Brooklyn. At this time, Mrs, Benoit allows a new and superior kind of chain to pro. toct ears from skidding, which will soon la* on the market. At the same time, she hands out a scheme, thoroiy illustrating it, which will do away with the processes of sewing on but- 1 tons and making buttonholes. “The biggest tiling you've done" says all womankind. Wliat are the advuni uges to automobiles or airships* or 1 family finances compared with the chance of escaping a form of drudg ery that accompanies a woman from the cradle to the grave? “Anybody might have thought of it." is the inevitable remark, when one scps the simple fastener that a twist of the linger- fixes in place. The button nuiv be of pearl, or any other button mate rial. There is no sewing, the button is screwed into place, and it can’t conic off.—Jewish Exponent. • Tan Delta Phi Fraternity, an or- i ganization of Jewish collegians with chapters at Harvard.

Bessie's eyes, heavy with weariness, sought tho clock; she gave a slgli of relief for the tyrant liand9 pointed to ten minutes of six. Soon the whirring of the machines would stop for a few hours: there would he the usual mad scramble In the musty-smelling, over heated cloak room for her shabby wraps, a short walk down Second Ave nue to the little Diary Lunch she us ually patronized for her lonely sup per. But it might not l>c lonely this evening, something like a flush stain ed her shallow cheeks and the eyes she forced back to her machine were no longer tired. She was not disappointed, for when she entered the tiny white-tiled place a boy a 1 tout her own age was already there to nod his greeting over the mag azine propped against his bowl of crackers and milk. Ilis eyes brighten ed appreciatively as site sank into the seat opposite, pushing back her red turn upon her rough bobbed curls; even after a day’s work in an ill-vent Hated New York loft. Bessie Hurwitz some how’ managed to look at least ten years younger than Iter tweuty-flve years. Her order given, she sat hunched foreward, shabby elbows on the bare table, chin propped on hands. Ralph, pushing lius magazine aside to give better attention to his supper and ids companion, noticed her growing frown, the sullen twitching of her mouth ; they had been close friends for only a few months but he already knew the signs of her moods of depression and how to conquer them. “Anything wrong at the shop to day?’’ he asked at* last. “Nothing more wrong than usual.” Her precision of speech and touch of accent contrasted strongly with the looseness of her companion’s diction, betraying the native-bom. ” r BI»e shop i-i like New York —and New York Js like America.— a great, hungry ma chine—whirring, whirring all the time and always hungry.” Sin* shivered a little. “It is like that picture of Lillen —the worker is like tin* fly caught in the spider web and Ik* can not escape.** He laughed boyishly. “And you’re feeling like a fly tonight! Come, here’s ■ jour supper. You’ll feel better If you , i eat something.'* She pushed hack the heavy china 1 with a gesture of disgust. “You talk like nil the other Americans.” she .said with n gesture of disgust. ‘lf you nr,, lonely--or discouraged—or heartsick —Just eat and you will feel* 1 letter, in America the soul* is swallowed by j the stomach.’’ j “You're not fair tonight. Bessie.” He | | no longer spoke, lightly. “It’s only n few months since you’ve come from * Russia—not even a year. How many ► real Americans do you know, any >l how? I don’t mean some of those lit - >1 tie girls or cheap fellows you meet *' at the factory. They’re not real Amer ► leans even if they were born here; they’re never had « real chance, most of ’em. and to them to he American means to wear the lutest fool fashions and see the latest shows and dance the newest dances. But we've got some real Americans in our old ‘ma chine. too. Only you haven’t met them yet.” “I’ve met you.” Her face softened a little. "It isn’t only that you and , your father and mother were horn here: hut you stand for the America 1 us(>d to dream about ‘way over in ! i Russia. You work hard all day but I at night you’re not 100 tired to go to j your night school: you read and study | and think. I read in your newspapers that America can feed the world al most with corn and meat: but it lias no food to give for the soul. There are so few of you that you arc lost— lost In the wilderness.” “Oh come you mustn’t make me think I’m a young wonder.” flushing boyishly. ".lust because I’m not a regular loafer —” “You’ve got dreams,” she interrupt ed. "and they’re tin* only things that count. “If I could only write Eng lish the way you do.” with sudden wistfulness, “that I could tell my dreams, too!” “Oh. I’m not among the best sellers j yet. even if I have sold a little poetry jto the magazines! Which reminds j me,” and In* began to search through , the sagging pockets of his coat. “I thought you’d like this, knowing the 1 original and everything.” He drew out a sheet of paper. “Something 1 : translated from l’.ialik the other d*.y. ! Want to hear it?” I “Yes.” “It’s his Tity of Slaughter.’ May be you know it. V” “Yes." Her tone was colorless and even, hut if he had not already fasten ed hiw eyes upon his manuscript, the sudden pa lor of her face, the tighten- ’ | ing of her lips would have warned him. “You know it vu« written after iof their damned pogroms.

Come, follow me into the dreadful town ” The girl leaned toward him. eyes desolated, her work-room lingers clenching and unclenching themselves, ns she listened to the Hebrew’s poet’s word-picture of the horror wrought upon helpless Jews by tin* maddened mol)—a picture of broken bodies strewn ninid the ruins of broken homes on which the spring sunshine shone iu its mild cruelty. “Behold, your CSod with Ills mild hand doth bring A two-fold blessing. Massacre and Spring!" “Massacre and Spring!” repeated Bessie and the horror in her eyes deepened. But Ralph did not hear her: ho swept on. thrilled by the scene ho had never witnessed, shaken by horrors which by the grace of Klod in* would never know. Ills voice sympathetic with tin* generous sympathy of youth, trembled with tin* burden of a sorrow net his own. the sorrow of ids people; it l.rokc w« *. «••• ooet -• fivi’/'.ij np peal: •Rise, God, for the slaughtered inno cent, For the martyred rise ami for the faithful aged. For the poor sucklings, for tlie little children. . . .” “Stop—please,” begged Bessie in a low voice, hut in* no longer heard her. He liatl followed the master singer of the woes of Israel into the blood defiled street *f tin* “City of Slaugh ter.” . . A market with living broken ware! , Men like worms* beaten, crushed, half • dead. Broken and twisted back*. Skin and hones, wrapped in rags. With children, dark, forlorn. And bony women, weary unto death. And beggar-learned, reach out their hands. Crooked bauds on which the wounds are hare. .And each of them cries out his rag ged wnres. Looking at the shining windows meek ly. Like slaves, like soulless, cringing, beaten slaves.” His voice broke. lie laid tin* paper , side. and. looking up. met Bessie’s eye which seemed to mirror all the ! vile tortures the ringing lines had pictures. Then truth flashed over him and he understood. “You—you have seen it all and know how true it is.” he said when he found his voice. She nodded. “AH of us in one po- J groin.” she said dully, “except my j brother and they took him In the army i afterwards. I never heard from him again.” Her lips curl scornfully. "You know the Hebrew well ami you choose the right words when you put in Eng. lish—hut what do you know of the things Bialik writes about—the tilings I saw with my own eyes?” "There is such a tiling ns the blood tT7* which hinds all Israel.” lie remind ed gently. "I cannot feel it as you do. hut still I have suffered a little ii: the suffering of my people.” "Suffer You suffer?” Her laugh rose strained and hysterical. "What can you in America know of suffering? You are all too well fed and comfort-j aide: you don't know what it is to suf fer here." and her clenched hand struck al her breast. “It is. impertiu-; ent for you even to speak of suiter- j lug.” But now his eyes, no longer soft with pity, challenged hers. "You are, -peaking of something you know, nothing about.” he answered coldly. | ; • Suffering did not make saints and prophets out of nil the people you saw hearing their martyrdom over there:; ami freedom and safety and a chance to earn a decent living hasn’t hurt all iof us in America either. You call us I well-fed: and I’ve known many hoy -1 who've given up a square meal to buy ! an opera ticket: or a hook, for we have our spiritual hungers too! And wei have our hero-martyrs ns well as you. although it isn’t as horrible. A boy I u:y brother chummed with at college I was actually offered a tlrst-claas job. a professorship in a college not a hundred miles from New York, either, and refused it because he knew* they didn't dream they were offering such a. chance to a Jew. He wasn’t a Jew like ’our father—or mine—and he didn’t hiy T'llllin or keep the Sabbath and I doubt whether lie’s been in a syuugog for years. Hut lie knew he was a Jew and kept the better drop alive in his heart —even in Amrica.” “The hitter drop?” Her tone, no longer scornful, was frankly curious. “Yes—that's my name for it. It’s the one thing that will save the Jew in America or in any other country, for that matter, where he’s not perse outod and tortured. In a free country like tills it's so easy to Ik* comfort able and well-fed, as you call us —and fov,V-. But if we’keep the bitter drop alive in us, the thought of the suffering of other Jews still in (loins, we'll bo spirit-brothers to all those ex iles: their sufferings will be our suf ferings. and they will help us to re 1 member the heritage for which they die and by which we and our children will live.” There was a long silence liotweon 1 them. At lust, smiling a little wist ‘ fully, he fo dcil the paper and thrust I into his pocket. “I am sorry you filin'.: it is only an exercise in trans ! alien for me.” hi* said slowly, “and Shut I did not understand.” I Her band clasped his across the lit tle table. “It was I who did not n«- 1, island.” she confessed brokenly. ‘‘I 1 was unjust. But here In America I have met so many who seemed to for got—who laughed ami danced while ‘ my Jews on the other side starved and 1 suffered. Like the Jews Bialik and I know.” and she turned away. 1 “Come along with me tonight,” he told her abruptly, “and I'll show you a few Jews who aren’t luughing ami dancing. But they're not allowing themselves to grow too hitter; they're working anil dreaming nml some of them are praying* for tin* day when all Jews may laugh and he happy togeth er.” lie rose anil reached for his hat. “Will you come?” * “I can’t— m3’ night school," she ob jected. “You’ll have to miss it tonight. I’ll miss my classes, too, but it’s worth it. Come along—I want to introduce you 1 to some Jews you haven’t jnct yet. * Please I” * lie nodded. “You understand now. * Ah.

For a I long time neither spoke, too moved by : what they had heard that evening. At last the man broke tin* silence that lay 1 warm and comrade-llkc between them. r “I am glad you were with me to night. . . . when I hoard him s|>cnk s it was like listening to the vole, of my people. . . . lie knows . . . and * .vcu. . .” “You, too," slie told him warmly. - "Perhaps you understand lietter than j ! do. for I am unhappy because I •! have seen so much of the horror he spoke about tonight, while you, suffer j oil with those martyrs because you, ■ , were so close in spirit. If ail AuierL * cans were like you, the 'City of Sluugh * tor would belong to faraway times I j like Home or Bablyon.” i 1 “There are many like mo,” ho ns- I sured her. “You heard them cheer I , and you saw them cry tonight.” “Yes.” As they passed a street lamp j lie saw how her eyes glowed with j feeling. “Yes, those who have never suffered as I have will help to ease , the suffering of the Jew. They will build a new city for us —a City of i Befugc.” Suddenly the glad light left her face. “But we cannot all go to Palestine. At least not for a very long while.” ”1 believe I am a good Zionist,” answered Italpli thought tally, “but to m ( . there; are other cities of refuge for the Jew lM*side Jerusalem. 1 know what you are going to say,” as she seemed about to interrupt him. “hut America, my America will soon be lu*r own strong self again.

After all,” he , added quaintly, “after all. we can : make even noisy, materialistic New York a holy city if we raise our eyes above tin* skyscrapers and look up at i the stars.” She held out her hand to say good night, saying nothing but looking into his eyes.
