Agadoth of Israel Translated for The Jewish Outlook by Rabbi Elias Margolis, Pueblo, Colorado. VII. The Rib. 1 God did not create woman from the head of Adam, nor from his eyes, nor ears, lest her heart grow vain, and she become inquisitive. Neither did lie cre ate her from the mouth, hands and feet of man, that she should not prattle and gossip, covet and envy, meddle and run about hither and thither. From the rib did God create her, in order that she might ever be modest, and do what is righteous, good and perfect in the eyes of God and Man. VIII. The Princess’ Reply. 2 It once happened that a heathen King asked one of the illustrious men of Is rael: “Why did your God steal the rib from Adam?” The King’s daughter overheard the question, and said: “My dear father, command, T pray lliee, that one of the judges who rule the people come before me.” And the King said: “What hast thou to do with a judge?” Upon which the Princess replied: “When the judge comes I shall ask him to im prison the thief who entered the palace last night.” “Pray tell me, my daugh ter,” said the King, “what did the thief steal?” And the Princess answered: “Just as sleep was stealing over us, the man entered the palace, stole a silver goblet, leaving in its place one of gold.” Amazed and astonished was the King at these, his daughter’s words, and he said : “Would that many such thieves would enter the palace every night.” And the maiden said: “Now lot my father incline his heart to the deed of the God of the Hebrews. Behold, He indeed took a rib from the sleeping Adam, but gave him. in its stead, a wife.” Hearing his daugh ter’s retort, the King then realized that he had not spoken wisely. NOTES.

The Jewish colony has bought up land all about that town and now numbers nearly one hundred persons. At first the appearance of Jews did not excite any unrest. They obtained options on poor farms and bought them at a low figure. Others followed, and one by one better places were made over to Jewish owners. They organized schools, built a synagogue and the colony continued to grow. Where the Yankee farmers had given their attention to tilling the soil, the Jews turned to farming on other and more profitable lines. They began rais ing poultry, which was shipped on the community plan to New York. They bought their supplies in large quantities in New York. This gave shopkeepers of fense against the Hebrews and file agi tation began. So strong has grown the feeling that Jews now have to buy their farms through real estate dealers in Winsted and Great Barrington, as the farm owners will not sell to the Jews, and make stipulations against the race, so that often the farms are transferred sev eral times by arrangement before they are finally deeded to their purchasers. Besides raising fowls the Jews have cultivated the wild black and buckle ber ries, gathered chestnuts for miles about, shipped carloads of laurel and spruce to New York decorators, and are showing the old-time Yankee farmers a new way of making their hillside farms pay. Some of the remaining farmers are sur rounded by Jewish neighbors and com plain that they will now he obliged to sell. All of the farms have been paid for in cash, which has led to the belief that the colony is backed either by a syndicate or some philanthropist. W. J. SPRAY, President and Manager. Telephone 2040.
