Many Cities of Spain Can Show th«
Remains of Streets and Build-
ings They Occupied.
In mnny big towns In Spain there
are beautiful remains of the ancient
Jewries, the streets and buildings liuv-
inir fe^en preserved intact to this day.
There are, for Instance, says the Jew-
ish Tageblatt of New York city, sever-
al tine residences which belonged to
wealthy Jews before 1102, especially
the two beautiful synagogues in To-
ledo, with their Hebrew inscriptions.
In Cordova, an important part of the
old Jewish quarter still exists, and
there is a beautiful little synagogue
with Inscriptions around the building,
which is sltauted in a street named
Calle MalmonMes. In Seville there are
four churches which were formerly
synagogues. One of the most beauti-
ful Jewries is that of Cordova, the
birthplace of Maltnonldes (Ramban).
It Is built in a tine Gothic style, and
| the old communal' house Is now used
' as a school. In Saragossa there are
I whole Streets of the old Jewry still pre-
j served with residences of wealthy Jew-
I ish denizens. Another old Jewry Is
| that of l'ontevedra, which is supposed
I to have been the town where the al-
] leged Jewish forbears of Columbus
I lived. There are thousands of Span-
ish families bearing Jewish names, and
they know they are of Jewish extrac-
tion. Several members of the Spanish
nobility are also of Jewish origin. It
' Is very remarkable that the Jewish
: type is even still preserved with such
' purity in those parts of Spain which
| have large Jewish communities, es-
pecially Andalusia and Catalonia. Nev-
| er can one .see in Europe such beauti-
ful types of women with their wonder-
' fill eyes, natural elegance, and most
attractive elasticity and dignity as are
to be found In Seville and Granada.

ALL HAVE FAVORED NUMBER
Inhabitants of Various Countries Show
Marked Preference for Numerals
to Their Fancy.
Some curious conclusions have been
reached as the result of what are
called the "preferred numbers" of the
Inhabitants of different countries. The
basis of ihe Investigation? had to do
with the various denominations ci
motley, postage stamps and other me-
diums of value. '
It appear* that nenrly all rrtees
, ince a marked preference for the
numbers two. three and live and their
multiples. The Mahommedans, howev-
er avoid the use of the number three.
Among the French and other Latin
peoples two and five are more popular
than three, while the English prefer j
two and three and the Germans three
. The Chinese ' 'd to resemble
the Latins in their choice, while the I
peoples of India have a strong liking
for two. The number seven is most j
used in the Slavic countries. The I
higher numbers ate not much used ex- |
cept In Spanish-speaking countries, as
eleven In Salvador, seventeen In Mexi-
co, nineteen In Spain. The people of
Hawaii are said to be fond of thirteen.

The Director of the Census, Hon.
Sam. L. Rogers, announces that 80,-
000 enumerators will be needed to
take the next census. The work be-
gins on January 2 and will last about
"(wo weeks in cities, and a month or
more in rural districts. Rates of
pay will vary, depending upon the
locality and character of the district
to be canvassed. The average pay
per enumerator at the census of 1910
was about $70. At this coming cen-
sus It will probably be not less than
"Active, intelligent, and reliable
men and women, not less than 13
years of age, are needed for this
task," said Director Rogers, "and, In
a sense, this is a call for volunteers.
The importance of a complete and
reliable census, especially in these
critical times when more than ever
before perhaps we need complete
data regarding population, condi-
tions, tendencies, and resources, can
hardly be .ever-emphasized. The re-
organization of the social and eco-
nomic structure and the readjust-
ment of International relations ne-
cessitated by the War must be based
on accurate knowledge it we are to
act wisely and deal Justly with all
classes and all interests. It Is hoped
