note urged in forcible terms the desirability, in the interest of both countries, of a speedy conclusion of the present agitation. The presentation of this note led M. Dupuy, the French Prime Minister, to bring pressure to bear upon the Court of Cassation, which, however, by a majority of three decided to continue the proceedings (its own way and hold a supplemental inquiry, lich is now virtually ended. Mr. Vizetelly learns that eighteen of the Judges of c Court of Cassation are in favor of revision of the eyfus case, and that fifteen of the Judges are op posed to that course. It is probable, Mr. Vizetelly adds, that on a full vote of the Judges of the United Court of Cassation the revisionists will have a ma- R 4 Unto the success of a sermon two people con nate, and without their joint efforts the sermon st be a failure," writes lan Maclaren, in the May Ladies' Home Journal, of * 4 The Art of Listening to a Sermon," the first of a series of articles by him. "One is the preacher and the other is the hearer, and if some art goes to the composition of the sermon, almost as much goes to its reception. In the art of the hearer the first canon is practice, for it is a fact that the regular attendant not only hears more but also hears better than the person who drops into church once in two months. No doubt if the preacher has lungs of brass, and the hearer is not stone deaf, a casual can catch every word on the rare occasion when he attends, although for the past six weeks he has worshipped at home or made the round of the neighboring churches. The voice of a competent speaker is not so much sound merely, but is so much music, with subtle intonations and delicate modula tions; his pronunciation of a word is a commentary upon it; his look as he speaks is a translation of it; his severity is softened by the pathos of his tone; his praise is doubled by its ring of satisfaction. A stranger's ear is not trained to such niceties; it is the habituated ear which reaps the full sense. Besides, every speaker worth hearing creates his own atmos phere, and one cannot hear with comfort until he is acclimatized."

If he ventures to live outside the Jewish pale in Russia a Hebrew has to carry on some hum ble trade, and the richest banker in Odessa, if any Russian has a grudge against him, may be compelled to wore as a cobbler, on pain of banishment. Naturally the Jews retaliate, and delight in get ting Russian officials and nobles under their power with loans of money. One million five hundred thousand fews live in the Austrian Empire, where they are persecuted. The present mayor and corpo ration of Vienna were elected for the express purpose of bullying the Jewish community. France has 80, --000 Jews, Roumania has 100,000, Germany 700, --000, Holland 80,000, and Italy 50,000. Great Britain has 80,000, including many of our most notable and popular public men. Europe has 6,000,000 Jews, America 350,000, Africa 500,000, Asia2so,ooo and Australasia 20,000. So, altogether, there are 7,120,000 of this nation, which is pretty fair, considering that 3,000 years ago they only numbered about 3,000,000, and the whole civilized world has been massacreing and bul lying them ever since. They seem to be by far the most capable race on earth. There is not a single art, industry or science they have not excelled. — Cin 11iititiii inquirer. "As I understand it," said the heathen, "you pro pose to civilize me?" ''Exactly so." "You mean to get me out of habits of idleness and teach me to work?" "That is the idea." "And then lead me to simplify my methods and invent things to make my work lighter?" "Yes." "And next I will become ambi tious to get rich, so that I won't have to work at 5659. Calendar. 1898-9.
