the glass on each side of the hears. A
rloser Inspection reveals a small cisket on
I the Inside of the hearse. It Is a modest af
fair, being merely a rugh board box cov-
ered with cloth.
Aa you are wonderinsr how many years
It has been since the heir's was used, a
team cf horses Is brought out and hitched
to it and It Is driven awav. If you happen
to b of an Inquisitive turn of mind "U
may follow It. anJ if you do It will led
you to one of the synnrgues of the three
orthodox Jews, one loc.ved at Thirteenth
and Capitol avenue, another at Thirteenth
and Pierce, and the third at Twelfth and
Dodge. This hearse hus been In commis
sion In Omaha for s-xteen years, and has
never carried the body of any but an ortho
The translation of characters on the
sides of the hearse Is. "He shall swallow
up death in victory and the Lord Gcd will
wipe away tears from off all faces."
Burial has always been considered by
the Jews as the greatest act of benevo
lence, and It Is a part of their religion to
bury their own dead. In the book of
Deuteronomy Is found the command. "Fol
low ths path of Ood and bury the dead,
even as He did bury Moses In the valley
Demoeraey of Equality.
The orthodox Jews never Indulre In ex
pensive funerals, for they believe that as
the rich and poor csrr.e Into the world
upon equal terms, so they should leave
the world on eiual terms, and no one of
them is sfl poor that he cannot have a de
cent burial, and a potter's field Is a thing
Unknown to them. Wherever they are to
be found upon the earth they have an as
sociation for the purpose of conducting the
burial service without charge, and to be
present at the death of a member and to
conduct the body to the grave. They
seldom bury the dead In a coffin, but sim
ply carry the dead to the grave In It and
the same cofT.n Is used year after ysar.
The body Is wrapped In a shroud of white
linen and rlaced In the ground. The cus
tom of burying the dead without enclosing
the body In a casket or box is an oil one
amorg the orthodox Jewa The process
of decay In the ground Is believed to be
painful to the body, and therefore to be a
means of atonement for the sins committed
This theory has led some to perforate
the coffin, and others to dispense entirely
with it. In order that the "earth shall atora
for the body" with the least possible re
sistance. An embalmer would thrive no
better than undertaker In a community of
orthodox Jews, for it Is their strict cus
tom to b'iry the dead upon the same day
that death occurs, and. furthermore. In the
Testaments of the Twelve Patriarchs, they
derive an Injunction against embalming, as
well as against unnecessary expense, where
Judah enjoins his sons "not to bury him
In cos'ly robes or cut open his body." To
keep the dead overnight was not permitted
In Jerusnlem, and the command given In
the book of Deuteronomy, "No corpse shall
remain over night." and "Thou shalt bury
on that day," is still observed.
shroud Is White.
As has been said, the shroud Is of white
Instead of blsrk. It was Jeremiah who
said. "Dress me In white garments with
sleeves, put cn my slippers and place a
cane In my hand and sandals on my feet
and set me by the high road that I may
be ready when the resurrection call comes."
Further authority for burying In white Is
found in the words of the Rahbl Jann.il.
who said, "Bury me not In black, lest I
appear as a mourner among the righteous,
who are clad In white In paradise."
To be denied burial was always consid
ered by the Jews the most humiliating In
dignity, for lt meant "to become food f'ir
leasts of prey." A person
suicide Is not placed In his grave until
As the orthodox Jews have their separate
hearse, so they have their separate ceme
tery, and lt Is held In great reverence snd
Is referred to In such poetic terms as "The
House of Life." "Everlasting Abode,"
"Garden of the Jews."
There are about 4,'mr- orthodox Jews In
Omaha Those of Russian extraction have
a cemetery near Paplllion. and the Polish
have one north of Otnaha. and lt is at one
of these places that he expects to be
"gathered unto his people" end to "lie
with his father" when life's tempestuous
voyage Is o'er. To be burled in the grave
with his father is his fondest wish.
So when you see that little Yiddish hearse

there Is one more whose wanderings wlth-

found the New Jerusalem.

Wlsmar. a port of 13,000 people on ths
Baltic, situated in the German Duchy of
Mecklenburg-Schwem, but belonging
legally to Sweden, has recently become a
German city. It was pledged to King Gus
