Hindu Widow's Lot.
Action is being taken by certain en
lightened'ndtives to ameliorate the shock
ing condition of tho avorago Hindu widow,
says the Bombay Advocate, of India. To
begin with, the Indian widow is shaved
bald, and can only hide her baldness with
her cloth ; she is deprived of all jewelry,
wears coarser clothes than tho rest of
womankind, must fast on certain days
and.every day has fewer meals than are
taken as a rule by tho rest of the family.
The scheme of relief afoot is that no
widow shall bo shaved until she is twenty-
one, ttie age at wtilcn it may be supposed
that alio will be able to show a will of her
-own in case sho objects.
