Polish Countess Contributes Saplings for Yeshiva Grounds

Recently, when the famous “Yeshiveth Chachmei Lublin” decided to improve its grounds, it was found that several thousand saplings were needed. When the Polish Countess Roland heard of the landscaping plan she was moved to offer young trees from her estate. She measured the grounds to ascertain the number of saplings required, and a short time later a number of small peasant carts, piled high with seedlings, were drawn up before the Yeshiva.
