Tin' National .Jewish Hospital for consumptives ivwived a letter from the hoard of St. Louis World's Fair man agers for Colorado, notifying them that the hospital had been awarded a "old medal. The letter reads as follows: Colorado Exhibit. I’alaee of Education, World’s Fair. Oet. 10, 1904. National Jewish Hospital. Denver, Colo., I am pleased to say that a •fold medal lias been awarded your hospital by the jury of awards. Colorado has attracted* much attention in the I’alace of Educa tion. She took frrand prize, besides many ‘■old medals, silver medals, etc. Yours truly, JAMES B. RAH AX. New Thought The Jews have been least insistent on labeling thoughts. They give their thoughts to the world and never show that silly weakness of calling and labeling every one a Jew who be lieves and thinks as the Jews. Not only in ancient Israel when prophets spoke, and poets sang, but in all later ages when nations were steeped in. ignorance, the 1’ tit JEWISH OIJ T OO tv Jews were students, scholars, teachers, professors, and never grew so invidiously siupid as to call every one a Jew who showed any signs of thinking, studying and teaching. And vel to-day one can hardly open his mouth and lei fall the word "mind'' without immediately be ing labeled as a Ncw-Tlioughtist. or what not. All these hundreds of years, nay thousands of years, the Jews used their minds, expressed their thoughts, aroused the world to think, and never made a fuss and uproar about it. while now a few people, whose families evi dently were never .guilty of thinking find the act of thinking such a novel ex perience that il becomes nauseating to one to whom thought is natural to lie la beled New-Thoughtisl the moment one speaks of mind and thought. Pretty soon our modern wise men and women who never read a chapter of the Prophets of Israel will call the peace con ferences assemblies of New-Thoughtists. never dreaming that twenty-seven hun dred years ago Isaiah dreamed the beau tiful dream of a universal peace when lie said (chap. 11. verse 4): "And nations shall beat their swords into plough shares, and their spears into pruning knives; nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more.” Tlu- thought is Imrnc in upon us llint per- A Tribute of Affection hups the truest measure of a man's worth is the love he arouses in other men. For if it he true that we are enriched and en nobled by the love we ourselves feel, then that man has lived best whose life arouses in us feelings of love and respec!. Such a love-inspiring soul was that kindly gentleman who hut a few weeks ago moved in the Jewish circles of Den ver. Mr. Julius Freyhan of New Orleans. 'I he “ready credence" of which the poet sings was marked indelibly on his face, and one had but to look into his eye to catch a glimpse of that sweet soul that animated the man. The tenderness, the nobility, the love that slumbers in every man rose in majesty to meet Mr. Frey hau’s own tender, noble and loving sou!. Such a, soul that spreads light and love wherever it goes can not he in darkness wherever it dwells. The human heart feels certain that such souls dwell in eter nal light, and God’s spirit is with him •and in him. lii mi article (iii “Christian The Label Progress in India.’’ Lord Radstock lends a number of oracles to the front to deliv er tlii‘ins(“lves of their confessions in the sight of all the living:. Speaking of Swaini Dharinanda. one of the mosl re markahle ascetics in Bengal. he says: “lie learned Hebrew and (Ireek in older to read the Bihle in the original, lie lea rued Arabic to read the Koran, has traveled in Knrope. spent a long time in Koine, went to Armenia. Constantinople, and from tlienee to .Mecca. China. Japan. After seventeen years’ study of Budd hism. .Mohammedanism, and Christiani ty. he has now avowed his faith in tlm Lord Jesus Christ, and has written a hook to show that our Lord Jesus Chris! is the Savior and Messiah, the only K deemer for now and all ages. lie ex pressed to me his opinion that India owed her civilization and her education tot he missionaries. ” The above example is strikingly illus trative of the difference between Chris tian and Jewish methods of injecting thoughts into humanity. Such confes sions and the like sound very nearly like patent medicine advertisements. Juda ism gives to the world its thoughts with out asking that everybody become Jews in name. If there is any good in religion, sect, school or family, why not give it to the world and let the world make the best of it. Why should we attach a label and yoke it.-upon the people’s neck .’ Very striking indeed, and very unique is the fact that the Jews will not only make no effort to.convert to Judaism, but will strongly discourage every one who volun tarily wishes to embrace Judaism, saving in reality, “If the religion for which we have lived and died brings you the mes sage of life, take that message and let it lead you into the fulness of life in your own individual way. Never mind the la bel, it’s the life you want.’’ Must not Christianity honestly confess that it has and does insist upon the “Christian la bel ’ which alone admits to a reserved seat in the halls of salvation !
