A rich Parisian lady recently had a
memorable ad venture. On tearing the
theater one afternoon she hailed a
taxlcab. Instead of driving her to her
home at the address she gave him,
the chaoffeur drove to the Cola do
Boulogne, and ontered the wood,
where the taxi was surrounded by
five men, who hustled the lady out of
the cr.b and, possessing themselves of
her furs, outer clothing, and Jewelry,
were driven off In the taxi by the
chauffeur, who was evldontly In

was left thinly clad and shivering with

In civilized countries, where the grace

There are no women in foreign
lands who will open their heart to
men. Using very shy and suspicious,
they aro often reluctant to do this
even to the missionary women who
visit them. In fact, auch a network
of suspicious fears has been woven
around the lives of women In non
Christian lands that they shrink from
every foreigner who would pry into
the secrets of their inner life.
It would be enUrely improper for a
man to visit the home of any Btlve
woman in any non-Christian land, ev-en
ehould she be a member of the church.

A missionary doctor in China was
once asked to visit a Chlneso home to
prescribe for a sick wife. When he
insisted on seeing the patient, the bus
band remonstrated. However, when
he found that no relief could be given
without examination, such as the feel
ing of the pulse, he hastened to her
room, Ued a twined string around her
wrist and passed the end out of tho
window to the doctor, telling him to
take hold of it and see if ahe had
fever. There are thousands of wom
en in Asia who would rather die than
let a man see their faces.
Over most of the territory from Ja
pan through Korea, China, Slam, Bur
nish, India and on to Palestine and
Turkey, women are shut apart in
places called the "woman's apart,
meat." In poor Indian homes, this
secluded portion of the housfe la made

Under auch conditions as these, it
can be easily soon to be impossible
for the men ot the mission stations to
preach tho gospel to tho quarter ot a
billion women living in the Orient; It
must be done by women.
In the first place, tho women of
these non-Cbrlstlan lands need the
gospel for their own sake. Tho soul
ot a Hindoo or Chinese woman la aa
truly precious in tho sight ot God as
that ot ony othor woman, for ho does
not look on the outward appearance;
whothor the person be black or white.

Another reason why tho womon of
tho Orient must be reached Is bo
cause they support and maintain tho
religious systems et the countries in
which thoy live.
It must be readily rcen that the
hundreds ot millions ot women In
Asia mut perish without tho gospel
it the womon ot Christian landa do
not respond to the call of Christ and
carry hit message into their homes.
The response which these women
give to the missionary lady who aaka
for admission to their homes U a
guarantee for untold usefulness for
any Christian woman who can find it
in hor heart to take tbvm the words
of ltfo. In tho non-Christian lands
women aro often so anxious to hear
tho messago concerning the "new
way" that they will listen with In
tense eagornesa for a longer period
than the missionary la able to speak.
With such an open door of blessing
offered to the women ot America who
have como to know Christ can there

would prevent ono from entering the
