Jews Want Russian Names.
St. Petersburg Feb. 4. The right
of Russian subjects of the Jewish
faith to assume ordinury Russian first
names and to confer them on their
children instead of those recognized
as characteristically Hebraic is to be
brought before the senate for deci-
sion by the Ministry of the Interior.
The custom has recently grown
among Russian people of this reli-
gious sect to resort to the use of
ordinary names in order to avoid
business and social embarrassment
The Ministry of the Interior has hith
erto held that while a man could not
arbitrarily assume another nams
than that entered on' his record at
his birth nothing could prevent He
brew parents from conferring on their
children non-patriarchal names.
The Holy Synod has objected
strongly to this custom and as
consequence of this the ministry is
appealed to the seriate and a decision
is expected shortly.

There Are More Foolish Buyers
Than Foolish Sellers. Why?
If you had something for sale you would know first what the
article cost you and second just what you wanted for it. You
would not sell it to the first person trying to buy It unless Jyou conld
get your price.
But are you as careful as a buyer? Most people are not and from
this lack of care arise much complaint. That which is done hastily
is usually not well done; what a first glance seemed to be wool turns
out to be shoddy; a shapely garment loses its fit after the first
laundering and so on. Bad ware is never cheap. Do your shopping
with thought and care.
Read the advertisements of the reputable merchants advertising
n THE AKDMOREITE today; read them closely and persistently
every day; shop with these merchants and you will have no causes
