BIBLE SCENES IN CHINA

In north Fukien province there dwelt
an artist who painted pictures on silk
for the gentry of his little village. The
people in this secluded hamlet nestled

the long journey to Shanghai to watch
the great steamers come in laden with
merchandise and messages from the
ports of the world. "But they knew tlie^

soul, writes Elsie F. Weil in Asia Mag

And the artist returned to: his
