A GOLBD MINE ON EVERY LOT.
Recent Developments in the KENWOOD district, comprising the Bradford, Brooke and Syndicate Additions to Helena, make the above statement almost absolutely true. But there are other features of this part of Helena that out weigh the probability of finding gold in paying quantities, and those are the freedom from smoke and dust that KEN WOOD Enjoys beyond any other suburb, the direct water service, insur ing purity and ireshness, the fins view, the rich soil, school facil ities, street car service, good drives and numerous other advantages. Prices are now reasonable, and the present is the time to buy. My list com prises many very choice locations. M0 M UTI-H, 214, 215, 216, POWER BUILDING, HELENA, MONTANA. CHILD LIFE IN INDIA. A Converted Hindoo Tells Some Things of Which the World Little Dreams the Work of the First Missionary Sent to India by the Presbyterians. The Songs Sung by Mothers to Induce the Children to Sleep-Reverence to Elders Early Instilled. Blboo Bhimmoull Singh, a native Hin doo who came to this country from India for pleasure, and who was here converted to christianity, delivered a lecture on the manners and customs of his countrymen last night at the First Reformed Presby terian church, Prospect place, near Fifth avenue, says the Brooklyn Eagle. Mr. Bingh appears to be about 28 years old. He dresses in his native costume while lec turing. He habs been away from his native country two years, and it is only two months since he set aside the beliefs of his race and entered into the fellowship of the lieformed Presbyterian church. He is proud of his race and of his country. He will fit himself for a missionary and return to India to assist in christianizing his peo ple. He had already lost the respect of his family before coming from India by having joined the English army there, as by so do ing he was forced to mess with European comrades at arms, and, having oaten with unclean beings, his own people would be come unclean should they eat with him. When his term in the army ext ired hb used the umonny he received from the Brit ish government in a trip through Europe and to this country. The history of hisr conversion to Chris tianity is very interesting. Many years ago the first mis Isonary sent to China by the leformed Presbyterian church picked up ia msle infant that had been cast out to be devoured by wild beasts. This boy we. reared in the nmisstoun school. The mlis sionary found it diflicult to make converts, and after nmny years patient toill lhe saw the first f:uits of his labors in the conver sion of this boy whom ho had cared for from infancy. This first convert's son is Dr. Scott. who oucupies a l:rominent place in .to, Ilndian mission of the Kefo' red Ireeobyterian church. Two yearn ago Dr. Nand, a high-caste Indian, was sent hole by his wealthy Indian parents to study mes chanics. lin met I)r. Scott and by his in fluenco he (D)r. Nand) was induced to emn brac, Christianity. Hte met young ringh, the lecture a or inst nir..ht, in New York re centl :nd co;nverted him to t'hristi:nity. Tlhu, the convr-rsion of tIr. Hiinlh is tim re muit ., thly rescuing of an infait from wild be:st,i+ rntaLv tears ago). ltfore Ii niu-ig htis formal lecture Mr. Fir.,hi , omrt'd out that :Europeans, lile in diae:. were dcvc-ndants of the Aryan race, at d tlhat the European aind therefore tle Amer icau bri.ch of tlir framily, havs min been enli, htened hret, should forl it their duty to send uiiselionaries tor India to con vert tahnt branch of the family. Then, too, the Americansi should realize that when tey send ii missirronary to India it was not only of tie solit to the lidians, but aleso to the Americans, as Chiintianity maikes civil- Zaliion iand civilization increases tlhe trade of older civilized countries. lie had sreen more Ameriean slilps in the, orts of lidia than he had seen in the t:orts of New York, and he believed the people befo e him would be rnrpriseol when Ie told thent tlrat there were nmore thanIi 10,lr AmIteican tnrders in India, each one adding to the wealth of the United States. "But beyond all this benefit to your commerce," he continued, "you should be interested in the missionary work of India, because every European race orig inated in India. We who remained at home have been buried in superstition for centuries, but are now beginning to shake off the old supersti tions. You whose ancestors left the home of our mutual forefathers have had many advantages that were not given to us. When you educate our women you educate a sister. If you convert the women of India the men will soon follow. Our forefathers laid out the plan for astronomy and were far advanced in architecture and other arts. Do you wonder that I am proud of my country? It has a bright future, and its success depends unon your missions." Mr. Singh began his formal lecture by describ ing child life in India. He is the son of a wealthy farmer in Napaull, in the northern pat of the country. He told how he had, according to Hindoo ways, been taught the dilfference between good and bad, and to love the former and shun the latter. He was taught to fear the gods, love his par elts. respect the aged and adhere to all the institutions of his ancestors, social or relig ious. Most of the Indians thus trained do and say many things that they have no conception of, much as a parrot is taught to utter words. In early life children were taught to have a terror of vouths or devils, the spirits of men, women and beasts dying under pe culiar ciroumstances. 'I here spirits are believed to be innumerable in countiles through which the sacred Ganges river does not pass. Most of the rich people carry their dvina triends to the Ganges country to die, so that they will not encounter d(evils and be enabled to reach heaven. M.others sing the, na.nirs if deivils as lullabys to chil dren. He reruemilered his mother singinIr to her children wihen they were fretful and would not go to sleep, "I aml Ear Cutter. live on burr trees, enrd cut the ears off of noisy children." So firm was the belief of the childrcn in Ear Cutter that in terror they ceased to cry as they poked their heads unider their lothller's arml to prote-t their ears. As childrenr grow older they ale soothed with songs made up of the stories of thil acts of devils, lions and tigers upon bad children. It is the custom for saervants to gather children about thern after dark and tell themr how devils wander about thi village at night and require the people they meet to recite their provers. They do all sortse f horrid things to those who rain nut do as required. Trhe children in great fear learn all the prayers and the naeoriIs of the idols that they Uav avril the evil of the dlevils.

In India, he said, daning .i ilte mnin source of pleasure among the high caste people, but instead of dancing themselves they hire others to do so. He was surplrised to find in this country and Europe tmen and women of all olasses not only were glad to dance for nothing, but paid for the privilege by giving entrance fees to hall rooms. In India they pail dear for danc ing. It cost from $500 to $5,t0O0 a night for the services of twelve dancing women and musicians. The reason Hindoos will not dance is because it is believed the custom originated among savages, and it is believed to be a degrading savage practice to move about or stretch the limbs with measured step. It is strictly forbidden among men and women of any standing whatever. Dancing men and womlen in India always belong to the disreputable class. "I want you to understand" said the lecturer, with some show of pride, "that even the dis reputable public people do not dance together. Men and women leanig aganinst each other's bosoms and putting their armas around their waists is regarded as both im moral to the public and a sin against God. A high caste Hindoo would rather see his children walking on crutches than see themo waltzing before anybody." In describing the occupation of high caste women he said: They spend their mornings in sweeping and cleaning the kitchens anld cdlean ing the supper dishes. Servants hi lp in thlk but those of a lower caste are not allowed to cotie to that part of the kitchen where the cooking is done. If any one should touch a cooking utensil before bathing it it would not be used again. After sweep ing the women spend two hours lattling and annointiuig themselves with oil anld perfumes. Then they help each other ill cookintig. As highly seasoned and spiccd dishes are use:l cooking is quite a taHl'. .i)e woltan takes care of the vegeiltable., the second grinds the spices, the third takes care of tile flour and rice, tie fourth nlItmkes the fire, the fitth sits by t.e fire to cook and the sixth does the tlsting, because the one sits Iy tue fireside and ilOes the 'olk iug does not taste anythmhie, Its it is conasld ered both d:rty and uneiodly to taste anoi thing in the kitchen. 'Ieloeftor the tasting is donte in another room. 'l'he lietlthod of cooking is scientific. 'iThe HindIoo Women take two or theoe kinds of vegi ttbil-s aind prepire ten dishes each differitig troi tile other in flavor, apperianilce and richness. The nlen eat first siid then the women eaCt irom the same dishes. Men clntsider wonwu their equals, but consider that they would forget God should becoiie toot familiar with them.
