(J. T. A. Mail Service)

The conversionists in Hungary are extremely active in the last few months.

The “Magyar Sion,” which they recentlyy published as their organ, is conducting a very vigorous propaganda. The editor of the paper is an ex-Jewish teache, who was some time ago sentenced to a year’s imprisonment for his out-spoken articles against anti-Semitism in “Mult es Jovoe.” At the girls’ school maintained by the Scotch Mission, 98 per cent, of the pupils are Jewish. The parents of the girls all have to sign a statement before admission giving their consent to their children taking Bible study. The girls are required to take part in Christian services.
