ONLY ONE HOSPITAL FOIt THE
INSANE IN ( 1 1 1 \ \ .
This is the John G. 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.
