THE OUTLOOK IN CHINA
BY REV. S. P. WIGGINS.
(Continued from last, week )
Chinese literature constitutes the
classics of Japan and Korea; while
its language is the medium of com
munication between uearly one-third
of the inhabitants of the earth—used
by more people than the Erglish,
French and German languages com
The Chinese are very industrious
It passes our comprehension how
a man could support his family off
of the product! of a two-acre farm;
and it puzzles us to know that off
an eight acre farm a Chinamm
grows rich. We have gotten some
idea of their industry and energy
from th- lauodrymen who have come
to our country, and yet these are
from tl “ lowest and sorriest classes
of Chinese. Indeed, wo are prone to
get an erroneous opinion of t he Chin
ese by juding from Ihe ones in our
country. They are enterprising and
great colonizers, a* seen by their im
migration.into all countries, and the
way they huddle themselves together
in the cities —having their own
schools, temples, customs, dress and
idolatry. They know how to make
money, and how to save it.
The Chinaman belor.gs to the Mon
goliari race, with yellow skin, black
eye, active body; usually healthy
and energetic. After his kind, he
is educated, proud, patriotic, cour
ageous, eonceited clanish, loving
passionately, ever reverercit.g all that
i3 Chinese, and until very lately
spurning all that was foreign. On
the whole they are a great people.
Napoieon, in exile upon St. Helena,
musing over the empires of the
world, and he knew them as no other
man, declared,“when China is moved
it will change the face of the globe."
But she will never be moved, ex
cept through the gospel of Jesus
Christ. However, the signs are very
propitious, and daily growing bright
er. Anew day is breaking in the
•astern horizon, which shall be efful
gent with the beams of the Sun of
righteousness, the Christ of the New
Dr. Young J. Allen writing on Jan.
1,1907, of the sweeping changes in
thought, in business. \n schools, in
the home, and in the government
said; “The movements on are sim
ply marvelous, and effect an impire
of millions. No such thing was ever
witnessed or chronicled in the his
tory of the past, or of modern times.
The whole of china Is involved; and
when China moves the orient is mov
ed the whole world is affected."
By imperial edict schools and col
leges are being established for girls;
and all branches of western knew
ledge are being taught. In three
provinces by a recent edict of the
governor the Bible will be taught in
the publis schools—everywhere the
people are eager to learn the western
knowledge, the English language,
and to hear the Christian religion.
What a glorious and oppor
tun'ty for the Church of Christ.
