A necdotes About
"Fools" of Helem

This tale is one of many that
might be cited as evidence of the
business acumen for which the
Helemites were famous.

The story is about two of them
who agreed to go into partnership
and, between them, managed to
find enough capital to buy a little
keg of whiskey as their stock in
trade.
- Beret," said Sholem to his part-
ner. '•I have seen many a business
like ours ruined by credits. Let us
sell for cash only "

- For cash only.•• Beret agreed.
They opened their business to
the public and waited for custo-
mers. But no customers came and
after a while Beret felt just a
little bit discouraged.

"Sholem," said he to his part-
ner, "I have five kopeks in my
pocket. Pour me a little glass of
whiskey. Its for cash, of course."
Sholem poured and Beret paid
and drank. lie MI and looked
much better.

"Beret," said Sholem to his part-
ner. "I see in your eyes that we
have the right stuff. Now that I
have five kopeks. I think I'll have
a little also. Its for cash, of
course."
Beret poured. Sholem paid and
drank, and he too felt and looked
much better.

"Sholem," said Beret to his part-
ner after a rather long pause.
"We'll not he so foolish as to sell
on credit. Pour me another little
glass—for cash, of course."

Berel drank and passed the five
kopeks to Sholem. Then Sholem
drank again and passed the five
kopeks to Beret.

Still there were no customers,
but were the partners discour-
aged" On the contrary! They were
in a state of satisfaction bordering
on Joy'
"Another little glass for me!"
said one and paid spot cash.
"Another little glass for me!"
said the other and paid spot cash.
The day passed and the contents
of the little keg as well. It was
time to close up for the day.
"Look. Sholem!" said Beret to
his partner, hugging the keg on
one side. "In one day we—we sold
out our stock—all of it!"

"Yes!" said Sholem, hugging
the keg on the other side, "and
for—for cash only!"




Now with regard to the school
teacher of Helen' it goes without
saying that he was in every re-
spect a true Ilelemite. How could
it be otherwise? Isn't every gen-
uine school teacher, no matter
where tie may live and labor, a
Helemite?
The one of Helem was particu-
larly shrewd in matters economic
and financial.
"You know," said he to his wife
one day, "if I were the Czar, I
would be richer than the Czar."
"How so?" she asked.
"I would do a little teaching on
the side." he explained.




With regard to money, the
school teacher of Helem had his
feet completely on the ground.
"It's a topsy-turvy world," he
once declared to his wife. "The
rich who have plenty of money
buy on credit. The poor, who
haven't a copper, have to pay
cash. Isn't it common sense it
should be the other way: the rich
to pay cash and the poor to "get
credit? What's that you say? A
merchant who gives credit to the
poor will become a poor man him-
self? Very well! What if he does?
He'll he able to buy on credit,
won't he?"

Foremost among the philosophers
of Helem was a certain Lemach
ben Lekish. No question was too
deep for him. Take the following
as mere illustrations:
"Why," he was asked, "does a
dog wag his tail?"

"Because," Lemach answered
without hesitation. "the dog is
stronger than the tail. Were it the
other way. the tail would wag the
dog."
Again he was asked why the hair
on a man's head turns gray sooner
than his beard.

"It's because." Lemach replied.
"the hair on his head is twenty
years older than his beard."

"And why," he was further
asked. "are the waters of the seas
salty?"
"Don't you know?" he said. "It's
because so many thousands of
herring live in them."
