Jerusalem Christian w;.ion Kirsion-
It has been my privilege for sev
eral years to he in persona! corres
pondence with the founder of this
missionary undertaking, Rev. Ah
salom Ben Oliel, who, together
with his faithful wife and daugh
ters, are laboring among the Jews
iu the City of the Great King in
Palestine. It is proper to men
tion that ho is a man endowed with
great learning, thoroughly ac
quainted with Jewish economy,
Talmudic lore, and thoroughly un
derstands the Hebrew Scriptures
in the originals, and with such in
formation he is prepared to an
swer all questions or meet any ar
gument from the learned Rabbis.
His method is to take up the Scrip
tures and show by the prophesies
that their fulfilment is accom
plished in the New Testament,and
that Christ could have been no
other than the Son of God, the
promised one to Israel. Under his
ministerial efforts several have
professed conversion, and now re
joice in their Savior, among whom
may be mentioned the sou of the
Chief Rabbi at Jerusalem, who, to
avoid persecution, had to flee the
city, and iie is now in this coun
try preparing for the Christian
The Jews at the present day are
divided in two main branches,
known as the Sephardim and Ash
k nazim, the former being of the
royal tribe of Judah, who were ex
pelled from Spain under the ty
ranny of her priestly influenced
rulers; the latter are of the tribe
of Benjamin, of which was old
brother Paul, and include those
Jews of Germany, Austria, Poland
and Russia. Of these two respect
ive branches it is said the Sephar
dim are the most aristocratic in
manners, and it is intimated thov
are more approachable to the Gos
pel. There are now in round nutn
be.s about 120,000 Jews in I’alas
tiue, including both branches
above named, and a few others of
minor tribes, and between 40,000
and 60,000 in the city of Jerusa
To the Christian the Jew must
ever hold a tender place in the em
brace of his feelings and affections.
They are God’s ancient people. To
them were the Oracles of God com
mitted. Of them were the Holy
Prophets. To them God manifest
ed Himself in various wavs,making
known through them the riches
of His grace, pow er and majesty to
a darkened world. They are the
kinsmen of Peter, Paul and John,
and “of whom Christ cams, who iH
over all, God blessed forever.”
To use a metaphorical term of St.
Paul, they are the root of the good
Olive tree that supports the branch
es —the church. If, then, because
of unbelief some of the branches
are broken off and that which is
wild by nature grafted in and par
takes of the fatness of the root,
let not such branches grow boast
ful and begin to chide the broken
branches, but live in fear, love and
humility, and have a tender, lov
ing regard for even the broken
branches. For God is able to graft
them in again, and will do so in
the fullness of time. Ho has said
so by His Holy Prophets, and what
He says He will accomplish.
What the Jew needs is the Gos-
pel. His right to it is one of pri
ority. There have always been
among the Jews a remnant, as Paul
Bays, who prove faithful to the
trusts of Christianity. Now, let
Christians be not unmindful to
show a willing support of the Gos
pel among .Tews, in holding up the
hands of those who are preaching
to them, leaving the result to God.
Money spent in this way, in my
opinion, is to as good, or 1 may
say to a better, purpose than in
many es the foreign missionary
enterprises, or even Home Mis
sions. Notwithstanding the Gos
pel is to be preached to thej whole
world but it is to the Jew first.
Now, our old brother in Jerusa
lem in a late letter to me makes it
known that he is in need of addi
tional funds. He asks me to let
it be known to Christians in my
community and country. Any
large 'or small pecuniary offering
they' may feel like making will be
accepted. It mav be sent through
mysplf, or direct to Rev. A. Ren
Oliel, Jerusalem, Palestine, Tur
key, in Asia.
Reader, remember what the
Psalmist said: “Pray for the
peace ot Jerusalem; they shall
prosper that love thee.”

Editor N ews-Herald : We beg
t l at you give us a little space in
the News-Herald to solicit tne
sympathy and earnest and hearty
co-operation of every good person
in Gwinnett county, and the sin
cere prayers of Christian people
The dark clouds of the Spanish-
American war have just been swept
from our political, moral and re
ligious skies, and the glorious sun
shine of righteousness, peace aud
prosperity is just about to dawn
upon our bright, beautiful land,
but we see the dark, angry aud
lowering clouds of dissipation
gathering* thick and fast; wo see
the vivid lightning of the human
passion and appetite as they (lash
untold misery acrosß our imagina
tion, and we can hear the rumbling
of the mighty thunder that is pent
up in the intoxicating cup, warn
ing vis of the approaching danger
of the mightest enemy to the hu
man soul, and one that would
overthrow all law, and defeat all
justice, and would throttle aud
rupture the very foundations of
our government if possible. It
behooves us, therefore, to muster
out all our forces and present a
solid phalanx. The enemy is not
just iu our community—in our
county. What is true in our
county is, no doubt, true iu every
county in the Btate that has “gone
dry.” What is true in our com
munity is true iu every communi
ty in Gwinnett county. We know
that the laws against the manu
facture and sale of intoxicating
liquors are being violated every
day right in our midst, greatly to
the discomfort of every good citi
zen, to the injury of the morals of
our town and community, and
therefore, to tlie detriment of our
present and future prosperity.
We have deemed it our privilege
anil duty to organize a “Law and
Order League,” at this place, the
object of which is to enforce the
law at all hazards, and we earnest
ly beg that every community in
the county will organize and co
operate with us in the enforcement
of the law. Let ns go to the
courts and ask the officers to put
just such fines aud punishments
as will lessen crimes.
At our last meeting we adopted
the following resolutions:
“Resolved, Ist, That we look
with horror upon the crimes that
are rife in our laud today. That
we most emphatically condemn
any and all violations of law, as
being unwise, aud against the
peace and good order of our com
munity, and against the very hope
of the country, the youths of the
land. Such crimes sow the seed
of discord, and perpetuate every
other vice and crime, and bring
untold misery into this world, and
in the next, eternal death.
“Resolved, 2nd, That we look
with contempt and horror upon
the man who will so far forget or
trifle with his own iuterest, aud
seek to destroy ours, by violating
Resolved, 3rd, That we mutual
ly pledge our best efforts to put a
stop to such violations. That we
will spare neither means nor labor
which may be necessary to accom
plish this purpose.
“Resolved 4th, That we look to
thorough and rigid enforcement of
the law as being the only effectual
remedy against this great evil, and
to secure such enforcement, we
most earnestly invite, request and
solicit the sympathy and hearty
co-operation and support of every
good citizen, and especially the of
ficials of this town. “United we
stand, divided we fall.”

the circumstances were sufficient
to excite the fears of a reasonable
man that such entry was intended,
and the killing was done under the
influence of such fears, such a hom

near Trip recently one farmer
said he was not going to buy guano
until the price fell—that he was

presume that it has fallen upon
that declaration, as we see that a

pimple or scratch has developed into
the most malignant Cancer.
