Thumbnail for

Hindoo Civilization.
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 ?

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. Mr. Distin, the Secretary, is
here, and active steps are on foot to se
cure a building where the society may
grow and prosper. Profi Wilbur Smith,
Major Mculellan and others are at the
van. In this city where colleges abound
and hundreds of young men congregate,
the YJ M. C. A. should flourish beyond
question. The convention to be held
here during this month will bring into
our midbt orators from all parts of the
country. Grand results are expected,
and should be brought to pass.
The Orphan's Home.
We have no specific report this month
from the Orphan's Home, Two littte
Preston girls have been entered there.
A sad fclliiction has befallen tho good
Matron, 'Mother Albrecbt, in the loss of
her only son, a fine young man, whom
his friends delighted to honor. She has
tho sympathy of The Record, and our
prayer that her grandchildren aud the
little mothe. leas ones may comfort her.
We have known her for many years and
in other scene s.
The "Gleaners" continue to meet once
a week and are busy upon gowns and
flannel shirts. The interest has increased
since we are to have a" poor suffering
chilcf in the "Polly Monroe Cot." The
earnings ef the past year have been in
vested in bank stock, 'and the Gleaners
are anxious to make enough money to
pay the current expenses of the cot with
out touching the invested money, with
which they hope in time to permanently
endow the cot. They therefore hope
the public will not think them bold if
they ask their patronage for the "Cake
Sale which they expect to have in a few
weeks. Fanny S. Todd, Sec'y.
