THE CURSE OF INDIA.

Itl the lixed scale of descent in India
some classes are merely inferior, while
-!ine are "tne-lean" or untouchable."
but from whatsoever class a man bo
born in be has no esf.-ip.- but death.
Children born in an "unclean" caste
remain 'unclean:" children born in an
inferior caste remain as their fathers
were. Nothing that they can do can
in the slightest degree change their
situation. They were born "unclean;'
their ancestors were "unclean :" their
descendants will be "unclean" till the
end of the chapter.
To give :i few illustrations from
many, a weaver is less "unclean" than
a carpenter, a carpenter is nlmvc a
bouse cleaner, a house cleaner is above
a street cleaner, and a street cleaner is
above a pariah or no caste man. Every
trade or occupation has its exact place,
arbitrarily fixed, in the scale of degra
dation. Above all the men that labor with
their bands in whatsoever way are
the tradesmen and shopkeepers, also
with subdivisions into classes: above
the tradesmen is the useless and now
almost idle warrior class: above the
warriors is the P.nilitiiau or priestly
class, and with these grand divisions
the structure of the system is com
plete. Wealth or material situation or suc
cess has nothing to do with the caste of
any man. You may hire for your cook
or valet a Brahman of the purest strain
serene, who for weeks before you en
gaged him may have been 011 the verge
of starvation. The meager beggar to
whom you toss alms 111 the road may
be of a very high caste. The well fed
groom, resplendent in gorgeous livery,
flashing by on a carriage that covers
the beggar with dust, is very likely of
a caste n mile In-low the beggar. Time
no more than effort can break down
these walls of division. One of 1he
wealthiest and most distinguished fam
ilies In Calcutta, the famous Tngore
faintly, lost caste about two centuries
ago. Members of this family have re
ceived honor from the government,
have conferred great benefits upon city
aud country and have been noted for
their numerous charities and benefac
tion. One exerted himself all bis life
to further native education. Another
helped to eudow Calcutta university.
All are enormously rich, and all bear
enviable reputations for goodness, hon
esty And philanthropy. But the wall of
caste has never fallen for them. They
are still hated and avoided by their
countrymen exactly as they were at
the liesinning of their exclusion. In the
Streets of Calcutta is many a ragged
artisan that would not sit on the same

of his robe.
