l,e was a Christian, a baptized member
of our church; that his parents lived
in the Choon Chun district, and his
father was a lay preacher. He then
told me the story of the prisoners.
These two young people, whose ages
were not over twenty-two or twentythree,
had murdered the woman's husband
and had fled southward ten miles
hoping to escape the law. They had
been tracked, arrested, and were now
on their way to the capital for trial,
which would undoubtedly end in the
death sentence being pronounced. As
1 looked into their faces, their eyelids
dropped and my heart ached as I silently
prayed for them. It is not permissible
to speak to prisoners under arrest,
so I ventured only one word, and that

life revealed to you. These two sad
creatures had no trace of crime on their
faces. They looked fairly intelligent,
gentle folk, and only God knows the
reason which overshadowed their consciences
and deceived them into doing
this terrible crime. If only the friends
in the homeland knew the horror of
Korean marriages, how sympathetic
they would be with these unfortunate
people.
A well-known missionary says that
in all Japan there are more than 10,000
people to every Christian worker, including
every Sunday school teacher.
THK GAMBLING CRAZE.
Relative to this increasing and
alarming evil, the Christian Advocate
says: "Some time ago,, at a public
meeting, a Harvard graduate of
18 73, occupying an important position
under the Federal Government (Dr.
Wiley) told his audience that he had
just returned from an intercollegiate
ball game, where every collegian he
met seemed to have a bet on the game,
and where he was himself asked in a
casual way how much he "had on it."
Commenting upon this, a physician
writes: 'If gambling of this sort is

said, what is to be said of the more
insidious development of the gambling
habit among women? Bridge is fast
becoming, among women, a game for
gamblers only. Many who for a time
held out against the fascinations of
playing for money, now gamble "to

medical man, I am convinced that
gambling at cards has had much to
do with the increase of nervous breakdown

mothers are becoming 'a party to practices

children should allow under her roof.'

added to It and enriched it so much
that it came to be called by its name,
as if it were a third temple. He practically
rebuilt Zerubbable's temple,
but without a suspending service in it.
His work took forty-six years.
Tli? Religious Kflfect: The erection
of the Temple consolidated the people
from the religious side made uo
of twelve distinct tribes; they had
only lately been brought together outwardly,
but the unity became more
marked now that it was expressed in
a great house of religion for all the
people, a central shrine. Had Solomon
but been faithful, the outcome
would have been more permanent and
happy. The wondrous Temple also
attracted large attention to the true
religion from th^ outside world, giving
a great object lesson to them as
it testified against the polytheistic
faiths prevailing everywhere else.
