Jewish Benevolent Institutions Through the recent report of the United States census bureau on benevo lent institutions, Jewish Comment lias made a study of data relating to insti tions maintained by Jews. The census inquiry relates to three classes of insti tutions— (1) hospitals and dispensaries, (2) orphanages, children’s homes and nurseries, and (3) permanent and tem porary home for adults and children, in eluding schools and homes for the deaf and blind. The census report enumerates 4,207 institutions in its report, and of this total sixty-eight, or a little less than 1 1-6 per cent, are conducted under Jewish auspices or are Jewish in char acter. They are divided and distrib uted as follows: No. of No. of localities States where where found, found. No. No. No. Jewish hospitals and dispensaries 22 14 11 Orphanages, children’s homes and nurser ies 25 14 10 Permanent homes for adults and children 15 12 10 Temporary homes for adults and children 0 5 4 More than two-thirds of the Jewish benevolent institutions are located in the ten largest cities of the country. This can be explained not only from the fact that the great bulk of the Jewish popu lation is found in the large centers, but also because the smaller communities often contribute towards the support of the city institutions, to which they send those requiring care. The growth of Jewish benevolent in stitutions has been slower than the in crease of population. Of the sixty-eight institutions included in the census re port of 1904 thirty-four were founded between 1840 and 1890, and an equal number during the next fifteen years. Thus, although as many institutions were founded during the past decade and a half as during the preceding half century, the great proportion of the Jewish population emigrated since 1881, and before that time there was little need for institutional care. THE SEVEN WONDERS OF THE WORLD. The following convenient rhyme will en able people to remember easily the seven wonders of the world: The Pyramids first, which in Egypt were laid; Next, Babylon’s Gardens, for Amytis made. Third, Mausolns’ Tomb of affection and guilt: Fourth, the Temple of Dian, in Ephesus built; Fifth, Colossus of Rhodes, cast in brass, to the sun; Sixth, Jupiter’s Statue by Phidias done; The Pharos of Egypt, last wonder of old. Or the Palace of Cyrus, cemented with gold. It would also puzzle many people to name the Seven Wise Men of Greece. They were: Solon, Bias. Chilo, Periander, Thales, Pit tacus and Cleobulus.
