Practical Christianity in Many
Far-Off Lands Themes
An unusuaiiy. interesting meeting
of the Woman 8 Board of Missions
was that held in the church parlors
yesterday afternoon. The meeting
was opened at half past two o'clock
by the president, Mrs. Theodore
Richards. The devoiional services
were conducted by Mrs. Will Forbes,
who took "Jesus Christ" as her text.
Following the reports of the. re
cording secretary and the treasurer
Mr. E. C. Scudder of Southern India
gave a short but interesting address.
He told of the three fold work which
the missionaries in Southern India
are doing. "The first entering
wedge" h said "is the Hindu , girls'
school.',' In the Hindu girls' school
only the high caste girls and christian
girls are admitted. Though the Hon
dus and the pariahs are not allowed
to mingle the Hiudus and Christians
may, fori the missionaries will "not
keep the 1 Christian ' children away
from the Hindus, though they are
bound to separate the Hindu from, the
Pariah: In thjs school the elementary
subjects are aught, fdr' after the girls
reach the age of eleven or twelve they
have to en tef . their Zanatas.
Much of ffie , work of bringing the
families to" h4 "Christian religion is
done by the'children. They tell their
parents of the ' good things at - the
mission and . sometimes, though not
often a whole family will be urged
to go to th$ mission by' a little girl.
The second wedge Is the "zanana"
work. Thlrfris done by the women
Bible readers. . They go , Into the
honjes-of the7 Hindu women and-not
only read the Bible to them but also
teach them to sew and to do the
other thing that the women who
have taken a- higher education know
how te do.- These Bible readers,
though many of them have come from
the pariah families, are accepted by
the Hindu , women for their learn
The third portion of the work which
is accomplishing a great deal in the
Gosha hospital. Here, too, the work
is done among the higher class of
people. , The Brahmins can come in
their carriages and remain in the hos
pital away from the public eye. A
Hindu woman is not allowed to go out
of her home where the' gaze of the
common people may rest upon her.
But 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 . Brahmins are con
tinually receiving treatment at the
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. Miss 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 Lundquist 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
seems wonderful. ,
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 wdrk
dene 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 or
suffering but many times causes tu
berculosis of the feet and the women !
die while still young.
There were to have been reports
from the Chinese .Auxiliary and from
the Lima Kokua, an organization in
the Kawaiahao Seminary, but the rep-'
resentatives of these two societies

and more than interesting paper on
