DEVOTED TO THE INTERESTS OF JUDAISM. Vol. I. RICHMOND, VA., FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 29, 1893. No. 6. RICHMOND NEWS. A number of improvements in the synagogue music are in contempla tion. Messrs. Henry and Nathan Strause of Henderson, N. C, were in the city this week. If there is much more rain, even the most orthodox will hardly feel like praying for it next Mon day. In future no children under the age of six or over sixteen will be re ceived in the Beth Ahaba Sunday school. The fruit used in the Succoth dec orations at the Synagogue Beth Ahaba was afterwards sent- to the Jewish poor. We hear nothing of the Bazaar that was to have been held this Fall. Have "hard times" caused an abandonment of the project? Billiards and pool are on a boom at the Mercantile Club. The re ceipts from that source of late have been among the largest known. ' Mr. Joseph Cohn, reader of the ( congregation Beth Shalom enter tained a number of friends last Monday in the Succoth at his resi dence. The Sir Moses Montefiore and Kenesath Israel congregations are arranging for an old time Simchas Torah celebration next Monday night.

The present entertainment commit tee are hustlers and deserve credit for the many pleasant affairs they have given. The attendance at the meeting of Paradise Lodge, 1.0. B. 8., Wednes day night, was so small that the amendment looking to an increase of dues was not considered. This will, however, positively be dis posed of at the next meeting. As to Subscribers. In answer to repeated inquiries, we would state that we will call on no one for money who has not in timated their desire to subscribe to The Jewish South. It is true that the United States Postal Regulations make every person who receives a paper re sponsible for the subscription price of same, but it is not our desire I or intention to take advantage of any such technicality. To all non-subscribers who re ceive the paper, we would say it is unreservedly a free gift from the editor, sent, however, with the hope that they mnst ultimately see that it is worth more than the nominal charge of one dollar per year, and recognizing that fact will not fail to send in their subscriptions. We have been asked a score or more times in the past day or two by persons who have never sent in their names: "Shall I send you the dollar, or will you send for it? " To all such we would say that we do not consider you indebted to us to the extent of one copper un less you have expressed your inten tion of taking the paper. If you wish to do this we would be glad to have you mail or send your sub scription to The Jewish South of fice, 722 East Main street. If you cannot conveniently do this we will cheerfully send for it upon notifica- To such subscribers as may fail to recevie their papers we would be obliged if they would call up 'phone j 876, and we will see that the trou- From Danville.
