Then the robber dashed toward tlhe ticket booth, the door of wMGh bad been left open. Tom jumped at the intruder and j the British side of the c gTappled with him. The two men fell to the floor and while they were struggling Lawless retreated to his booth and closed the door. He yelled loudly for help. The robber broke 'loose from Tom and ran down tlhe stairway. He was by a cabman at <tlhe bottom of the stairway, tout as no policeman was in sigh* he was able to run west on Eigh- teenth street and escape. Lawless was not seriously hurt and he remained on duty. Tom was so badly knocked out by the excitement that he was sent home. The robber was roughly dressed and wore a red skull cap.

'Bienit reporting the surrender of an 1 insurgent general and a number of Filipinos. He says he regards the surrender as very important and that j it indicates a collapse of itfhe\ insur- t rection because the territory in which 'the surrender took place has hereto- fore been obstinately defended. His steward to -Mesopotamia to find a wife for Isaac, alter meeting Rebekah, tlhe daughter of Bethuel, a nephew of Abraham, he gave Ihar ecrane presents, consisting of a goldien earing, orae Beka, or a half stoekel, -two bracelets, and 10 gold slhekels in weight. Jacob bought a parcel of land in Shechem for one thumdtred Kesitaih, Which had tihe same value of a Maneh rn gold. By the purchase of Joseph by the Is(hma.elites from his brothers, they paid them twenty pieces p.f silver, buit \it\'doesn't easy money. It. appears, therefore, beyond doubt, 'tlhtat before She exile, 'tihe Hebrews Had silver and go-id pieces of fixed values for tihe pur- poses of caanmerc'e.

John Hyrcanus was succeeded at h.is death by his eldest son Judah Aristo- bulus, who died in the year 104 B. C. E., after governing but one year. The coins issued under his government are like *hose of his predecessors, with the exception that his namp, Judah, is inserted instead of his fa- ther's. Judah Artetobulus was suc- ceeded by his brother, Alexander Jan- BUCUS. who reigned for 25 years. The money coined in tihe early part of his reign was exactly like those of his predecessors, with the exception that Shis name, Jannueus, was inserted; this appears to have been the original form of the name Jannah, Which is tihe appellation by which he is known in the Talmud. After Jannaens had been victorious over his enemies he changed his modest title of \high- prfeat\ into the more ambitious title of \king and inscribed on his coins, \The King 'Yehonaitban.\. This legend in some specimens, is inscribed in the spaces between the eight rays of a star, surrounded by a circle, and in others is written around a half-open flower. Cta the reverse side is an an- chor with two cross-pieces, surround- ed in Greek words, (Alexandroi Basil- eos). the King Alexander. In the museum at Marseilles there is a coin of thi3 reign, which has only a wreath on the reverse side and the Greek words (Alexandroi Basileos), the King Alexander, with two con- nected cornucupiae and a poppy-head on the obverse side.

The exact values of these weights, according to ouir American money, was as follows: the Talent was worth £1,350; the Maneti, about -$22; the Shekel, 44 cents: -ithe Bekaih wais about _._ cents, and the Gerah, a fraction over two cents. Tiie flra* mention • of coined money lised among the He- brews is (found in Ezra, after their re- turn-.flrom their Babylonian captivity, where Darkemonim of gold and Man- im of silver are spoiken of. This was about 538 B. C, and about eighty years later ttlhe Adairkooim are again alluded to Ezra and Neshemia. Tlhe Darkemon and Adairkon are both in- tended to onean one and tlhe same thing, nameily a goa'd coin, wthich was well known to the Greeks, and \had be- come «urrenit before the time of Dari- us Hystaspea. Specimens of it are still in existence. On one side there is no stamp; on ihe other •Chere is a crowned bowman in a kneeling pos- ture. Tlhere was also current in Per- sia, the silver shekel, called by the Greeks and Medians siglas, which we find also to (Netoemia. Its value was one-twentieth of tbe gold coin last- mentioned and it was stamped like the latter. There were halves and quarters, thirds and sixths. The first two were rare. During tihose years while the Jews lived under Persian pule, -they used Persian coins, and made none of tJheir own. The first trace we have of any regular coinage among the Hebrews, is found in 1 Mace, xv: 2-9, in which. Antiochus Epiphanes authorizes Simon to coin money for his own country. Tnis was in itfift year 138 B. C. E. During the four years of Simon's government, aiftter he had obtained the requisite pofwer, (138-135 B. C. E.) he issued the following coins: 1. A silver shekel .\containing on the obverse side tlhe inscription, sihek- el of Israel, in amoientt Hebrew char- acters, encircling a cup which has ov- er it a Hebrew letter, meaning 1, to denote the first year \of independence; and on the reverse side a twig of lilies containing three flowers, one upright and one on eaah side ait right angles with it, the inscription, Jerusalem the Holy, surrounding it. The authenticity of this coin, and the truth of the reading of the legends thereon, are indisputable, for we can find them in the British Museum., The weights of the Hebrew coins were not according to the Attic system of Alexander the Great, but they follow- ed Dhe older, namely, \The. Tyrian weight,\ wlhidh was founded on Babylonian. The Talmudtets deration the Man eh zuiri, a portion of pain, and also Kesef zuri, a silver piece in need. 2. A silver half shekel, with thi same inscription and figure on the re verse side as fthe shekel. On tne ob- verse, the same flowers as the Shekel, he was executed by Herod, the son of Antipater, who succeeded him. There were some small eolins which were is- sued during Ms reign. There are a (few bronze coins of the reign of An- •tigonus. The obverse side thas the Greek words, BaMleos Antigonoi, the King Anitigonus, aronmid a laurel w-reatih. TSie reverse has two cornu- oopiae, connected at the ends and his Hebrew name, Matathia, tihe high priest and the connmundty of the Jews. In farm and character these coins dif- fer from those of the preceding reigns. Some of them have but a single cornuoopia, probably to denote in Hebrew, Of the deliv- of Jerusalem.

In the Talmud there Is a discussion regardii ng the money used to the day* of Davifl and Solomon; some say tney used pieces of silver, copper and gold, even lead, as a meddum of exchange; and some say they used the shekel of Istrael which is very often mentioned •in the Bible.
