CALL ON J B EDWARDS & SON FOR FRESH MEATS AND FISH OR PHONE 59 VOLUME 26. 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 bined. 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 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 Testament. 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. (To be continued next week.) JACKSONIAN ROLL OF HONOR. 19 new subscribers this week. L. Noseworthy, E. G. Duke, F. M. Mabdox, J. F.Flynt, J.
