Take a glass ubout ten inches in

The Jews. Phi you ever think
how remarkable il is that a proplo su
long away front their native couutry,
and so wide? scattered among other'
peoples, should keep their original (rails
of character, their religious brl'rfs,
aud theii' genera) distinguishing I co
in res, so wholly unchanged? Tho
Jews in America, iu Chins, in K up
land, iu Kassiu, or Franco, believe to
day just as the Jews iu Jerusalem be
liercd long years since, anil look just
us they looked. Jews seldom uiairy
other than a Jewish church. They
cling to the nutinnuliiy as to something
sacred. Aud it is sacred in their
sight, (loco tbey thought themselves
the Lord s chosen people ; nnd ihey
think so still. To urn the blood of any
other people in thir veins is, in tlieires

worthy ol lioJ's i -special regard.
