I am a foreigner by birth, educated in
the oldest, the greatest and grandest
civilization of East India, the cradle of
the civilization of the earth. The peo
ple of this country do not understand
the civilization of India, except a ew
college bred men. L' wen ty-four
years ago, educated in my
country as a preacher and
doctor. Alter embracing the Christ
ian religion, I went, to Kurope, thence to
Canada and to the United States, and
devoted some years in the best colleges
in America, as a Medical Missionary.
There are these principal professional
studies in the world, viz., theological,
legal and medical, bir. a doctor has the
hardest life in the world. lie
has to combat the various dread
ful diseases of the human life, when
ever the patient is sick he depends up
on thi doctor, and the doctor must de
vote himself honestly, to raise that pa
tient, it is his sacred du y and honor.
I practiced medicine mostly in a large
cities. There are three regular medical
schools l1 this country, viz., allopathic,
homeopathic, and eclectic. I belong to
the eclectic system of this country.
India has been a land of mystery 1 1 om
the earliest times. From the i lost
ancient days we hear of India as the
most populous nation of the world, full
of barbaric wealth, and strange wisdom.
King Asoka, the grandson o. Chandra
gupta, reigned from 2Ö'J to lG'J 1. C,
Chandragupta was a contemporary of
Alexander, and according to the Hel
lenic, 1 mean (Ireek, historians, Chan
dragapta became king of India, 315
15. C.
It has attracted conquerors and has
been over run by the armies of -?emi-rimis,
Darius, Alexander, by Mahormned,
Tamerlin?, Nather-Shaw, Akober, Aur
ingjob, by Lord Clive, and Duke of
Willmington. These conquerors from
the Assyrian Queen to the liritish, East
India company, have ver run and
plundered ancient India. If we study
comparative Philology we know that
the Aryan (noble) family woo 'livided
into two branches, the Northwestern
and Southeastern. The former marched
to want the home of the setting tun, till
they had reached that small peninsula,
which we now call Europe. The'latter,
the South-eastern branch, set out to dis
cover the home of the rising sun, till
they reached their earthly paradise, in
the alleys of the land of the Ten jab,
and further still, along the shores of the
Oanges and Jamina, "The Lord of the

European family was divided into seven
branches, viz.." Hindoos, Persians,
Greeks and I tomans, who all emigrated
to the south from the original ancestral
home, the Celts, the Teutonics, the
Slavomic, who entered Europe on the
north of the Caucasis and the Caspian
sea. These seven branches were oii
ginally one, that they must have emi
grate . from a region of Central Asia, at
the east of Caspian saa northwest of
India. They were originally a pastoral
shepherd race and gradually changed
their habits as they descended from
those great plains into the valleys of the
Indus and Euphartes.
The first emigration of mankind took
place before the confusion of tongues
at Habel, from the region of Ararat,
where the ark rested at the time the
earth became almost dry; and either
Noah or some descendant of Shem led
the people into the western parts of
India, and this increasing colony
nourished intellectually, morally, social
ly and spiritually, practicing the pure
monostheistie (Monos, one; Theos, God.)
rites of patriarchal religion, without
images and temples, till at length the
descendants of Ham invaded and con
quered India and corrupted the most
pre-eminent religion of the Hindoos.
The eleventh century befoie the time
of Alexander, they (the Hindoos) ar
rived in India.
The venerable Hindoos have sacred
books of great antiquity, and a rich,
sublime literature extending far back
twenty or thirty centuries; yet no one
has any definite idea of it all.
Hindoo religion is professed by more
than half of the human race. The doc
trines of "Veda" are acknowledged all
over India, even in European countries.
The word" Veda" means in the Sanskrit
"devine;" in Latin, "Video," I see; in
Greek, "Idow," I know. The schools
of India were divided into three parts,
namely: Xyaya philosophy; Sage
Gauthma, founder of the lluddhism;
Sankhya philosophy, founder of the
lJrahniaiiism, by Sage Kapela; Ve
danthe philosophy, the Sige liardayana.
These sacred books or bibles were
written by these holy apostles 1280
before Christ.
There are live grandest religions of
the world, imnely: Urahmanism,
Huddhism, Mohammedanism, J udeaisni
and Christianity. According to the
Hindoo religion there are three perons
of the God-head, like the Chritian re
ligion, viz.: Jitahma, Vishnu and
Siva, the trinity. They are equal in
power, glory, majesty ami dominion.
The Urahtna, the Great Jleing, is the
first cause, supreme, eternal, uncreated
God. Urahma, the first created being,
by whom he made and governed the
world is the prince of th j beneficent '
spirits. He is assisted by Vishnu, the
great preserver of men, who several
tunes appeared upon the earth and un
der a human form. For the most
beneficent purposes Vishnu is often
styled like Chreshn.i, the Indian A polk.
The Siva is the destroyer.
This trinity, or belief, was promul
gated in India 1500 years before the
birth of Plato. In the Indian mytho
logy the incarnation of Vishnu has been
innumerable; but in Visnnus particu
larly distinguished. First was in a
form of a fish; second, of a tor oise;
third, in that of a boar; fourth, in that
of a monster half man and half lion;
the fifth, that of a dwarf; the sixth as
the sun of Samadagne. All these took
place in the Sathayoga, or golden age.
The eaily sacred "Vedas" were written
in the sacred language cf India, called
the Sanskrit Many American scholars
are not acquainted with the wonderful
lan uage of India.
We will illustrate a few words of our
relationship. In Sanskrit, deva means
God; in Latin, deus; in Gre'k, theos.
"One touch of n ature makes the wh Ie
world kin. The father, mother, an i
kin beside of kin allied; related by
birth or marriage, of the same race or
blood. The bride-grooms doors are
open wide and I am next of kin." There
are sublime teachings in the Hindoo
philosophy, even with regard to moral
character and family devotion. This
doctrine teaches that degeneraie spirits
fallen from their original rectitude,
migrate through various spher.s in the
bodies of dilferent animals. Hindoo
philosophy teaches us that man is a
lallen creature. There was a Greek
philosopher by the name of Pythagoras
who went to India in order to study
the wisoDm of the men of the East.
The temples of divine worship in
India are magnificent and sublime.
There religions rites are pompous and

The Presence of J'. II. Stacy Yesterday
Drew a I.arjje Audience.
Friday afternoon a large .'number
of people interested in the Y. M. C. A.,
woik in Plymouth met at the pleasant
rooms of that association to listen to an
address by -täte Secretary E. E. Stacy.
'wing to the shortness of the time, no
regular line of thought was taken up.
The only question of importance that
arose, was how to push the work of se
curing sufficient funds to insure the
successful operation of the association
for the ensuing year. Questions of im
portance were asked by those present
and intelligently answered by Mr. Stacy
and Hon : Thayer.
The executive board of the asso
ciation are in earnest, and are extremely
anxious to push the completion of the
gymnasium and bath rooms. IJut it is
surely known by our people that this
cannot be done without money. It will
no doubt cost in the immediate neigh
borhood of SI, 200 ti SI, 100 to do this
important matter justice, and it should
be borne in mind by our business men
that the greater portion of this money
must be subscribed by them.
It is of the utmost importance that
this necessary ingredient be forth
coming; and our people should not wait
for the finance committee to hunt them
out, but show their appreciation of the
good work that is under headway for
the benefit of the young men of Plym
outh, and come to the front and donate
a handsome sum toward this commend
able enterprise.
Discovered in Time.
Last Saturday evening at about 4
o'clock, the barn of Alfred Huff, about
seven miles south of this city, was dis
covered to be on fire. Mr. Huff and his
hired man were hauling corn fodder
from the fields to his barn and he had
just opened the barn door to drive in
when smoke was plainly seen and they
immediately carried water and extin
guished the fire, wfiich had been started
by some one rapping some old rags in a
bunch and placing them under a sill. A
hole about two feet square was burned
in the barn lloor, and in a lew moments
the large structure would have been a
mass of llame, only for the timely dis
covery. They cannot account for the
A Dangerous I'lay thing.
One day lat week the three and four
year old boys of Moses Lauer, while
playing about the house, accidentally
spied a revolver which was placed in
one of the drawers of a commode and
immediately took possession of the
same and were sitting on the lloor play
ing with it. IJut for the timely ar
rival of their mamma, there would
probably have been a serious accident.
Lacerated Aim.
While operating a rip saw at the
novelty works last Saturday John
Urittleham was struck by a splinter and
badly, but not seriously, hurt. His arm
was badly lacerated and the bone was
fractured but not broken.

The publication by the 1nii:ii:niknt
last Saturday of the fpet that there was
a lloaMng rumor current to the e fleet
that one of the saloons had been open
in violation of law the Sunday before
started Marshal Myers on a merry
chase in search of its cause. Mr. Meyer
has, in consequence, been engaged this
week in special self appointed detective
work and yesterday had the satisfaction
to report that the rumor was groundless
and without foundation.
The result of this investigation was
just as Mr. Myers thought it would be
for he did not believe there cou:d have
been a crowd of cigarette smokers,
billiard players and card players in any
saloon where all curtains and screens
have been removed from the windows
as directed by the Nicholson law with
out being seen and he was certain that
all screens in all the saloons in this city
: had been lawfully disposed of on that
particular Sunday. Furthermore this
was a matter in which Mr. Myers was
particularly interested for the odium of
negligence would have fallen upon hini
i had the rumor been well founded.
On Sundays one of Mr. Myer's special
duties is to guard the people of this
municipality against infractions of the
Nicholson law and see that the dignity
of the state as involved in that law
shall be preserved inviolate. With that
special duty and the unpleasant infer
ence? to be drawn from a rumor imply
ing that that duty had been neglected
weighing heavily upon him we are glad
that Mr. Myers has run the canard to
the ground with so much satisfaction
to all concerned. It is gratifying also
to know tiiat where lawlessness was
implied there were only the conditions
of peace and good order.
Ir. Hoy's Lectures.
The announcement of the lectures
at the U. II. church Sunday morning
and evening by the Hindoo, Dr. Hoy,
drew crowded houses both morning and
evening. The doctor, thoroughly un
derstands his subjects, but the trouble
in handling the English language
makes the understanding of the entire
sentences difficult. The congregation
last evening was forcibly struck by his
numerous description of the difference
between the United State and India in
their marriage relations.
I mproyed Appearance.
The improved appearance of Kothen
burger & Landis' market is gratifying
to proprietors and customers alike.
The re-painting and re-decorating
from entry-way to ice chest have great
ly changed the general appearance of
the entire market so that it is a real
pleasure to go there on a marketing ex
pedition. This firm is to be congratu
lated on its steady growth, both in
facilities and patronage.
There was a special review held by the
K. O. T. M. Eriday night for the pur
pose of balloting on seven candidates.
After the balloting a general good time
was had. Next Tuesday night we will
have several candidates that will be
given the work and there is several of
the Argos Sir Knights to be here, also
several Sir Knights from Tyner. Sir
Knights, turn out and have one of the
befct reviews of the year 18'JÖ.

cided at its meeting Wednesday last, to
treat the Nicholson law as a non-partisan
measure. While a large number
of the party do not believe in the posi

that body believes they have acted for
the best interest of that party in the

The proposition of the hin :ri:iKX r
to give a crayon portrait free with every
one year paid in advance subscription
to theSKMi-W'KLKi.Y Ixin;ri:xiu:xThas
proven to be a proposition that scoies
of people have been wishing somebody
would make. Theie is hardly a family
in which there is not one picture or more
that someone in the family has been
flunking of having enlarged in crayon.
Many have been deterred from having
the work done on account of the ex
pense necessarily involved and have
therefore deferred, their orders
from time to time expecting before I01.7
to be better prepared financially, lint
money comes and money ges and the
demands are continuously a little ahead
of the income. The luxury, therefore,
has given away to the necessity.
The IxI'i.:pi:mk.t now oilers the
crayon portrait free and there is 1.0
longer any excuse. No family ran af
ford not to have the local and
world's news furnished tiitin. Uy

And the Wearying Patience of the faith

Ti.e process of revising the ordinances
of this city has dragged itself wearily
along over many weeks and last night
the legislative functions of the council
were rendered inoperative on account of
the failure of kthat body to muster a
Tne meeting last night, as have beer,
a number of preceeding meetings, was
appointed for the purpose of contin
uing tne revision of the city ordinances,
and the failure to secure a quorum was
but one of many annoyances that have
attended these special and other meet
ings for some time past. It is not usual
to fail in getting enough members 01
the municipal legislative body together
frr the transactian of business, but the
thing that has most persistently ruffled
the good temper of the faithful has
been the repeated and almost habitual
tardiness of members that came in late.
To have members come straggling
in from the hour set to thirty, forty-five
or sixty minutes later is a handicap to
the smooth progression of business and
in laboring for the people it is due the
people that councilmen should report
for duty at the hour set, the same
as would be required by any private
concern. It is the only way that the
machinery of government can he made
to run smoothly and without friction.
"Keep oil' the Cirass."
While our friend Endley, of the
Walkerton Independent, has no beauti
ful well kept lawn around his sanctum,
yet lie has that which is of considerable
benefit during this winter weather. In
last week's issue he breaks forth thusly,
(and, by the way, there, are some people
in Plymouth, who, if this reaches their
eye, should read it twice: 1
"To tlise who have been making
themselves fresh with the Independent's
wood-pile after dark, we wish to say
that we received a nice dry load to-day,
so that we can keep them supplied. It
is good, hard body wood and we are
confident that our neighborly friends
will be well pleased with it.''
