Kerr Refuge in Canton. I)r. Kerr, who spent his long life in medical mission work in that city, bought with his own money, in 1892, four acres of land opposite tho foreign concession. Friends enabled him to erect two buildings upon this Now there are live buildings filled to overflowing wifli 250 patients, who have come not only from Canton, but from Amoy, Shanghai, Foocliow, Chinkiang and Tientsin. Since 1898, when tho hospital was opened, there have been 1,4 80 patients, and 4 9 per cent, of those discharged have been sent away cured.' Formerly the vio lently insane were imprisoned with criminals; others were allowed to beg in the streets. The Chinese authori ties liavo made grants of ?5,200 for new buildings. Tho physicians* sala ries are provided from America, but running expenses are covered by tho fees of well-to-do patients. ? Record of Christian Work. THE ORE AT PERIL. A missionary from Anhui writes: Some time ago they wanted a place to hold a local assembly. It was pro posed to use a temple for the pur pose, but the idol was in the way. Mr. Hu, ono of the village leaders, said, "Take it out and throw it into the river." Some objected that the idol might be angry and make trou ble, but Hu said: "If he wants to make trouble let him come to my houso and make it; I am not afraid," and Into the river the idol went. Notf the temple is empty. Is it not like the story of the devil that went out, and, coming ba^k to an empty house, brought back seven others worse than himself? The Chinese heart is very rapidly being emptied of the old su perstitions, more rapidly, indeed, than we can fill it with the love of God, which is the only thing that will keep it from welcoming an atheism that is worse even than heathenism.' THE WAGES OF SIN IS HEATH. The terrible penalty for sin, says the apostle in the first chapter of Romans, is not the pain it brings in the way of retribution. For indeed all pain has a tendency to purge; all retribution is merciful and indeed loving. No; the -terrible penalty of our sin is ? its consequences. The loss it brings to us ? the narrow life, the darkened conscience, the ability to be satisfied with the life of the senses, the dying out of the soul, the awful retreat and final departure of the very faculty by which we know our selves to be something other than the brute that perisheth. That in St Paul's view is the wages of sin ? not punishment, but death. And so, in that chapter, ' speaking of the consequences of wrong ways of living, he uses such phrases as these: "Men received in them selves that recompense of their error which was due." "Even as they re fused to have God in their knowledge, God gave them up to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not con venient." And again he says that by persist ing in their evil courses men become "past feeling." They lose even their natural affection, and at last become not merely ignorant of God, but actually "haters of God." ? Condensed from At Close Quarters, by John A. Rarker.
