She was taken sick two weeks beiore

LI Hang Chang and the Hible.
Li Hung Chang, or the European,
as this broad-minded Chinaman is
called, has for some time been show
ing a keen interest in Christianity
and the study of the Bible. Apart
from the innate desire that Li Hung
Chang has to possess all knowledge,
this is probably owing to the skill
ful elforts of Gilbert Reed, who per
haps more than anv other mission
ary has used the most successful di
plomacy in securing a hearing with
heathens or high degree.
Gilbert Heed was first sent to
China by a Presbyterian board of
missions. When there he recalled
the well-known motto of the Ro
mans: "When in Rome, do as the
Romans do," and became, in fact, a
thorough Chinaman. He rented a
house in the circle that is occupied
by the high mandarins about the
court and furnished it in true Chi
nese style. He adopted their dress
and customs and grew a very re
spectable queue. Curiosity was
soon aroused about him and the de
sire was bred to know more about
this estimable man. In the adop
tion of their ceremonious politeness
he particularly delighted them and
became a favorite gu'st at state
fetes and banquets. He did not
force his opinions upon them, but
stated them clearly when they were
sought after. Kxcepting the em
peror, he was received by every
ugh Chinaman about the court.
For he argues that it Is to this class
Christianity must flr8t be preached
In this way he became acquainted
with Li Hung Chang, who delight
ed to ask him innumerable ques
tions, the first request always being
to know his age, that of his father
and mother, and family ; for this is
Chinese form or acquaintance.
Shortly, Li Hung Chang became so
interested in the handful of men, as
