Jewish Family
Pittsburg, .Pa., Dec. 19. President

Taft has brought about the reunion of

a family that for four years had been
separated because of Russia's attitude
on the passport question.

Wolf Fanlmich, a Russian Jewish

cobbler, came to this country five years

ago. Later the immigration authori

ties refused to admit his wife and

children because the mother had a

disease of the eyes that at first was
supposed to be trachoma.
Russia ignored the passports of the
husband and father, when after four
years he, a naturalized American cit citizen,
izen, citizen, sought admission to the czar's
country that he might again see his
family. His claims of American cit citizenship
izenship citizenship were ignored and he was told
that being a Jew he could not return
to Russia.
Henry Friedman, cashier of the
Roth bank, a foreign savings Institu Institution
tion Institution in -McKeesport, laid the matter
before the president in a letter. Pres President
ident President Taft through the state depart

ment communicated with the Amer American
ican American ambassador at St. Petersburg and
ordered an investigation that resulted
in his wife and children being sent to
this country. They were held at Ellis
Island for forty days while the wom woman's
an's woman's eyes were treated. Yesterday
she and her little ones arrived in McKeesport.

HOSPITAL'S GOOD WORK

Editor Star: I wish to say a few
word3 of praise for the Marlon County

hospital Nov. 29th, to be operated upon
for appendicitis, and the operation was

performed Tuesday, Dec. 5th, by Drs.
Dozier, Lindner and Lane, and the op operation
eration operation was most successful. She has
nothing but kind words of praise for
the prompt and courteous treatment
extended her by the imatron and
nurse3 in charge and it wa3 with p.
feeling of regret that she bid them all
good-bye today.
I certainly hope and trust that it
will not be long before Ocala will have
it3 new hospital, as the old one is en entirely
tirely entirely too snail and inadequately
equipped. I feel a deep interest in

any im.ovement affecting Ocala, having-
oeen a resident there for the past

three years, up till two months ago,

when I was compelled to move to

Waldo on account of my duties.

With best wishes for the hospital,

between Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa,
and it was there I learned to shoot

"Von had been in the army, and dad
was an old seadog, and they were both
stern disciplinarians only Von's girls

thoy were two men, after all. They
spoiled us terribly. You see, they
didn't have any wives, and they made

both languages passably well, and we
learned them wholly in the saddle or
in camp. When I was sixteen we three

"I was tisree years at Mills sem seminary,

two years in New York, and then dad
went smash in a sugar plantation on
Maui. Dad had nothing left, and
he decided to return to the sea. He'd
always loved it, and I half believe that
he was glad things had happened as
they did. He was like a boy again again-busy
busy again-busy with plans and preparations from
morning till night. He used to sit up
half the night talking things over
with me. That was after 1 had shown
him that 1 was really resolved to go
along. We were ready to start to Ta Tahiti,
