Adventist Minister Believes
Empire Will Become Great
in Family of Nations.
That the Chine?*? people are turning
away from idolatry and are looking lo
j the western nations for instruction and
j science and religion was a statement
made by Elder I. II. Evans of Shanghai,
China, third vice president of the Gen
era! < onferenev of Seventh L>ay Advent
ist.", this morning at the services held by
the conference at the Seventh Day Ad
ventist Church, in Takoma Park.
I"he temples are being forsaken, the
old priesthood is losing its influence
j among the people and China is looking
forward an,l westward for light and
knowledge," jir ^id.
Effect of Revolution.
In his sermon lie spoke freely of the
effect that the present Chinese revolu
tion would have upon rhristian missions
in China. "The present crisis in China
can only tend to the furtherance of the
Christian religion." said Elder Evans.
"It is impossible for China to go back
ward. Her people are determined to press
forward and become enlightened. With
its 4.??,iw(o.Mn of population, with the peo
ple more industrious than almost any on
earth. < hina needs only an opportunity
to become a mighty factor among the na
"V.'r of the present age.
' liina is in the midst of a revolution
which may overthrow the present regime
and establish a new order of things. The
reicming dynasty, which has !ield almost
undisput.d sway over the Chinese empire
for more than two centuries, seems un
able to cope with the situation."
Manchu a Foreigner.
"To the Chinese people the Manchu
is a foreigner. His presence in China
has always been unacceptable to the
Chinese people. Since the Boxer rebel
lion the Chinese government has been
most conservative, ami many of the most
progressive m< n i:i government employ
have been set aside, and a conservative
el? ment placed in. authority.
1 he advan e of our missionary work
in t. hina has been most encouraging. In
no other country in the world outs de of
Korea have the Seventh Day Advent
ists made such progress a.? among the
hmese people. Our mission stat.ons are
established in five of the leading prov
inces. In these province we have eight
schools. \\ ith an attendance great? r than
the capacity of the buildings that we oc
cupy will accommodate. More than iiOO
people will have been bapt zed and re

passed the 37.00i> mark. Had we the fa

u??;^eaR,,.y inorease this circulation to
11H.MM9 copies monthly.

Cannot Go Backward.
"The present crisis in China can only
tend to the furtherance of the spread of
the Christian rel gion. It is Impossible
lor China to go backward. Her people
are determined to press forward and be
come enlightened. If a new regime can
bo established, a liberal, progressive irov
eminent control affairs in China and a
free schooi system thoroughly establ shed,
so that the common peopie can receive
an education. China will be one of the
great nations of the day. '

STUDY OTHER RELIGIONS,
IS ADVICE GIVEN WOMEN
Twenty Churches Represented in In
terdenominational Mission
Study Course.
An interdenominational mission study
course v.-as inaugurated yesterday after
noon in the Sunday school room of the
Church of the Ascension, with Mrs.
George Thompson Prewitt leader and
"Light of the World" the text book. Tills
class is held cach fall under the auspices
of the Woman's Interdenominational
Missionary Union, and Is open to all
church women.
Mrs. Mary Lattimore of the Vermont
Avenue Christian Church led the devo
tional exercises and reports were heard
from the various interests of the uniotj.
Mrs. Prewitt gave as reasons why all
Christian women should familiarize them
selves with the religions of other nations:
"Know tnd you will feel. Know and you
will give. Know and you ^\ill pray, and
'go tell.' "
The subjcct under discussion for the
afternoon was Hinduism. The speaker
dwelt on the characteristics of modern
popular Hinduism and sketched the
progress of reformed Hinduism.
It was declared that Hinduism , is de
ficient la that "It rests not upon brother
hood or equality, but upon caste; the in
feriority of woman; the pantheistic idea
of God. and idolatry and gods of bad
character." Contrasting Christianity with
Hinduism, the speaker found as gratify
ing points of contact that "preparation
for Christian li\ing is seen in the daily
religious life oi' the devout Hindoo and
in the deep spiritual longings oi" the Hin
doo soul; (:?? belief that the things seen
are temporal and the tl:ii>t-'s not seen are
spiritual it. deeply ingrained :u the Hin
doo temperament."
Mrs. .'. C. Gilbert of the Methodist
Episcopal < hureh followed Mrs. Prewitt
and closed the session with a prayer that
all Christian women may realize their
debt to Christianity and carry the mes
sage of life to all nations.
Eighteen churches in the District were
represented and two in Maryland. It was
announced that next Friday Mrs. Prew
itt'.-) subject will he Buddhism, and also
that Mrs. A. E. Wood of St. Thomas'
Protestant Episcopal Church will give a
B'-ble reading on the subject "The Signs
of the Times."

LECTURES ON HYGIENE !
FOR PAW BENEFIT i
I
j
Course Has Been Arranged by j
Woman's Clinic and Approved ;
by Supt. Davidson. |
A scries <>f lectures on practical hygiene,
to be given to the parents of school boys
and girls of this city, have b?. n arranged
hv the Woman's Clinic of rj.!7 T street |
northwest, and will be Riven at meetings
of home and ^ liool associations and sltn
ilar organirations. as well as before the j
high and normal school students thrt.ugh- (
out the winter. The lectures have all
been approved by Superintendent of
Schools L>avids?>n for the parents, and
with but one exception, in which case
he is at present withholding judgment,
have been approved for the students oi
these schools. This exception is the
series of lectures on personal and s^x
h\ giene.
The lectures are in a series embracing
the following topics: ?"First
tagious and Infectious Diseases, l bJ sl"
ology and Hygiene of the < hild." hex
Hygiene and Education and numerous ^
miscellaneous sub ects. i
The Monday Evening Club also is sawi
to be arranging a series of lectures to l?c j
given tills season along similar lines. .
Last vear this club Issued a small bullf- (
tin treating practical hygiene t ? every
school child in the city*.
Will Awaken Interest.
That these lectures will in all proba- j
Dility be another great aid in awakening
the home to its responsibilities is the
prophecy made by school o.iicials today.
Washington, it is said, already lias made
rapid advances along this line. In some
cities, it is said, in the poorer districts
of New York and Chicago, for example,
the duties of the home are so tar neglect
ed that the school teachers have to su
pervise the baths of the children and
regulate their eating. It may be said,
however, that nothing of the sort Is an
ticipated in the immediate future for this
city.
At the same time it has been founu ,
necessary to employ dental inspectors, )
and teachers have been asked to look
after the children's eyes. Also medical j
inspection has been going on for years. ,
Although these things are said to have
their "good points," especially for chil
dren whose parents are somewhat lax.
many of the school chiefs have" begun
to wonder where the line will be drawn
between the duties of the home and the
duties of the school.

close, but in each case it was reported

| some months ago. and at that time was
i informed that an automobile patrol would
| be provided. The condition of the old
\^agon, however, would not permit of
! waiting until an appropriation could l?e
made for an up-to-date wagon. 2nd
therefore one of the old wagons was
! overhauled and placfd in sPrvlce. MaJ.
Sylvester hopes, however, to secure an
