Mrs. (i. L. Wharton, who, hn recently returned from India, met with the Ladies' Missionary Society of the Broadway Christian Church at their last meeting. In reply to questions she gave a good deal of information. Nothing is consid ered a sin among the Hindoos ex cept some offense against an idol. Murder, lying and stealing are not crimes; there is no law against them except English law. The life of no Hindoo is considered of any value except it be that of a man of high caste, and even then if the murderer cuts off his hands he is not held responsible. Clu-tnut Street Mission. The handsome brick church on Chestnut street, which was cstab lished a year ago as a Mission by the Broadway Christian Church, is now almost self-sustaining. The Sunday School numbers one hun dred and fifty scholars, and there are over one hundred names on the church book, with frequent addi tions. The pastor, Mr. Tinsley, has the confidence and affection of them all. Chestnut street has im proved rapidly, and the church oould not nave selected a better location. Electric cars pass the door, and the street will be lighted by electricity. ; Kindergarten. Since the January, issue of The Record vigorous movements have been set on foot to establish free kindergartens in Lexington. Mr. zette, has organized one at the In dustrial school rooms in memory of his mother, Mary Cecil, who died fifty years ago. Miss Mary Hamilton is the teacher. The W. C. T. U. are soliciting subscriptions for another free kin dergarten . The value of this kind of training among the children is immeasurable. More than any thing else in life it proves how truly prevention is better than cure. The Church Home. This institution given by Mrs. E. B. 'Woodward for a refuge for the women of the Episcopal Church who are not Eaupers, but who required assistance, as-been, further aided bv voluntary contributions. Mrs. Wm. Warren sends us a brief notice of the llou o Endow ment Fund, which she undertook to rais about four years ago. She says: "To raisj a fund of $1,500 from a subscription of ten cents week looked almost like folly, yet it Ins not proved . so. The fund now amounts to nine hun dred and live dollars and thirty cents. Eight hundred dollars are now out at interest, which brings fifty-eight dollars and fifty cents a year. If the subscri bers still feel disposed to continue their contributions the desired amount can be easily rained." The Second Presbyterian Church has lately given a contract for the building of a new organ which is .to be erected about the first of March according to a novel and beautiful plan. It will be much larger than the one now in the church and will have many improve ments upon thn old style mechanism. The ch ir in this church are all mem bers of it, and work together in furnish ing music which is both beautiful and churthly. We understand that the congregation are looking forward to a series of meet ings the firbt week in February, when Dr. Blackburn, of Covington, Ky., will preach every uigbt. JHml Ilfxht Chmripioii. Among th-j faithful in onr groat band of Ioxinjton philanthropist; is a woman whopo every pulse throbs with anguished sympathy for womankind, whoso heart and mind devote their mighty ttrength to breaking the chains from hr sisters, whose, nervous forco is tried to the ut most tension lest she fail. Ic is to her that we bread winners owe the wondrous revolution in the social code which per mits the Southern woman to go out from her home and earn her living She and her co workers have made it possible for women to be clerks, type-writers, mer chants, aye, something besides the household drudge and the needle's slave. Kead the literaturo she scatters broadcast; give her a respectful hearing; study the property laws sho would cor rect so as to enable you to hold the piti ful sums you work for, and the day may come within our generation when in the eveuing, if not in the meridian of life, Laura J3. Clay my sit with hands folded and look triumphantly upou the bless ings she has wrought. With woman's innate reserve, Bhe faces the multitudes with the courage of conviction. With all of a Southern woman's shrinking delicacy, sh presses on, conscious that innovations are op posed, that Ephrairn will cling to his idol of ignoraut submission. A Ken tucky woman, with the boat-ted blue blood of the Biuegrass heraldry in her I veins, she turns - iroin the social tri umphs to which her native gifts entitle her, to the disputed arena of woman's true place under the laws of the Com monwealth. Do we, her sisters, realize her motives and her aims ? Ynint TIicyNny. "We look forward to The Record stir that grows in magnitude th nearrr the time approaches for its appearance.'

The Gleaners Secretary's port. lie- The Mcrehead, Ky., Mission. The Broadway Christian Church is preparing another box for this mountain church which the late Gen. Withers in part supported. Mrs. C Calvert, of South Limestone, made a call some weeks ago for school books and suitable reading of all kinds for the people whose iniittis are starving in that barren section. The result was a huge box of magazines, text-books, history, fiction, etc, and the letter of warm thanks that she received amply repaid her labor. Mrs. Calvert, as President of the Broad way Aid Society, wishes to send another box as soon as contributions come in. Rid your closets and shelves of rubbish thct will make glad the hearts of the Morehead people. The Y. M. C. A. This order has taken a fresh impetus in our city.
