Somehow, by common consent of the boys who learned in the Bes Midrosh, one of them was elected as Gabai and charged with the responsibilities of this institution. He would make up a list of boys, appointing them to collect money from the Jewish merchants in town. Each boy would have his Friday assigned to him in which to make his rounds. Another list was drawn up designating one boy a week to collect the books strewn on the tables and place them in their respective shelves. The money collected was turned opcr to a treasurer, usually a merchant of good repu-tation. The money was withdrawn only when needed to buy new books or mend the old ones.

When in winter the pumps froze or when, due to some mechanical malfunction, the pumps would fail to operate, a board was lifted up and the bucket dropped directly into the well and thus the water was drawn. Rising above the rows of single storied homes in the Marck were two taller structures each having two stories: one in the west, and one in the north. Both ow־ners used the lower floors as saloons and the upper ones for living quarters. The one in the north served also as a sort of hotel when cir-cumstances imposed detention on an infrequent visitor. All roads led to or emanated from the "Marck." Southward was the heavily ...
