. An interesting literary: program, was
the feature of the regular meeting of
the Woman's Board of ' Missions of
the Central Union Church, which' was
held yesterday afternoon at. three
o'clock. The meeting was poorly attended,-
and this was accounted for
by the busy Christmas season.
"The Moral . Teachings of the
World's Great Religions" was the sub-.
je'ct of a paper which was ; read by
.Mrs. Howland. in which she discuss
- ed the different religions and . their
morals. The paper touched upon the
i different religions .in which the wo
men of the local churches are great
ly interested, and showed the Chris
tian religion to be the best one. A
brief sketch-of the religious?--movement
in India, and the difficulties
surrounding it, was given by Rev.
Mr. Scudder. and following this, Mrs.
. Doremus Scudder gave an account of
Her recent visit to the mainland and
of the different churches she visited
while tht-re. She was present at the
meeting of the American Board - of
Missions in Boston, and brought
greeting to the local society.

An. unusually;-interesting .meeting
of the - Woman's Board oh Missions

yesterday afternoon. ; The ; meeting
was opened - at half past ; two o'cloek
by the president,; Mrs. Theodore
Kichardsu The deVoUjnal services
Were fcondueted ;by i'Mrs- Will Forbes,
wha took "Jesus Christ" as her text
Following the reports of the re
ccrding secretary and the treasurer
Mr,. E.C. Scudder of Southern India
gave a short but interesting addrcis.
He told of the three fold work which
the missionaries In. Southern India
areVv, doing. " "The" first - entering
wedge", he said "is :the Hindtr- girls'
school., In.; the . Hindu" girls school
only the high caste gtrls and christian
girls are admitted. -. Though the Hon
dus and the pariahs are not allowed
to mingle the, Hindus and Christians
may; , for the missionaries will not
keep the Christian': children aVay
from the Hindus tbbugU they are
bound to separate the Hindu from the
Pariah. la this school the elementary
subjects are taught, for after the girls
reach the age pf eleven or twelve they
have to enter their Zanatas.
Much of - the work of bringing the
families to the? Christian relifAm Is
done by the children. " They" tell their
parents: of 'the good ' things at; the
mission and sometimes, thought not
often a whole . family will be urged
to go to the mission by . a little girl.
The second1 wedge is the "zanana"
work. This W done by the women
Bible readers. They go ; Into the
homes of the Hirfdu Vvomen and not
only read ' the Bible to them but also
teach them to seW j and to do the
other things thah the women who
have taken a higher education know
how to do. Thes6 Bible readers,
though many of them, have come from
the pariah families, are accepted by
the -Hindu - women for ; their learn
Ing., v ,
The third portion of the work which
is accomplishing a great deal In the'
Gosha hospttaL Here, too, the work
Is done among - the higher class jot
people.- The Brahmins can -come in
their carriages and remain in the hos
pital away from', the public eye. rA
Hindu woman is not. allowed to go out
of her home where the gaze of the
common people , may rest upon her.
Bnt If she rides to the hospital in a
well sheltered vehicle and when she
reaches her- destination, is kept In a
secluded part she Is allowed to re
ceive the treatment.';
Mr. Scudder says that hundreds of
these high class Brahmin are con
tinually receiving treatmept at the
hospital. -. ! ;
Good Work Here Promised
In his closing remarks Mr. Scudder
spoke of the good work the Woman's
Board is doing here and complimented
them in that. they have missionaries
of their own out In the field.
Mrs. Doremus Scudder, who "has
been on the mainland for some time,
gave a short talk on the churches
and Woman's Boards she had visited
there. It was her privilege to visit
the -Woman's Board in Boston at one
of its monthly meetings and also the
Woman's Board of the Pacific. She
also told of the visits to a number
An interesting letter was read from
Miss Mabel Bosher of Kawaiahao
seminary. -Mfss Bosher recently vis-
"ited the annual meeting of the Ameri
can Board in Boston as delegate from
the Hawaiian Board. Miss Bosher in
her letter told of the work accomp
lished by the Board.
Mrs. W. A. Bowen read two Inter
esting letters from Mt. Selinda,
Africa, and from Pang Tchuang.
From Mt. Selinda came news that
was most encouraging. A. nurse,
which has long been needed, has been
secured, in the person of a Miss
Lundquist. Miss Lnndquist will leave
the United States for Africa in a
New Industry Started
A spinning and .weaving, depart
ment has been opened and the cotton
industry is. being started. The corres
pondent in the letter said that these
things might seem small to one who
was not in the field or who has never
seen the natives of Africa but to. one
who has spent a great many years
there and who has a thorough knowl
edge of the people and their customs
every step towards' -their uplifment
The letter from Pang Tchuang was
from Dr. Tucker who is well known
here. This, contained news of the
war. He told of the many soldiers
who came to the hispitals for care
and who, while there, received Christ
ian teaching. The war brought the
missionaries in contact both with the

Dr. Tucker also told of the work
dcue among the women. "Foot-binding
is still in vogue in China and it
is usually after remaining for a time
at the mission that the women re
lease their feet. This foot-binding not.
only is the. cause of a great deal of
suffering but many times causes tu
berculosis of the feet and the women
die while still young.
There were to - have been report:?
from the Chinese Auxiliary and from
the Lima Kokua. an organization in
the Kawaiahao Seminary, but the rep
resentatives of these two societies
were unab! to be present at the
meeting. - '
