was determined to be a follower of the Lord Jesus Christ to the end of his life. Mr. Andrew speaks of him as a remarkable young man, specially so in prayer, having undaunted courage and great force of character. On Sunday, May 15, a crowd began to gather around the mission house, and the fatherof the young man and a number of Hindus came with a request to see the youth. The father was admitted, but the entrance of the others was forbidden. The crowd to the number of a hundred broke in, refusing to leave, and the father and a Brahman friend commenced to drag the young man out of the house against his will. Violent treatment was also given the missionary, but later, when the police arrived, the rioters took to their heels. The respectable Hindus of Chingleput are said to be much ashamed over the persecution. Though deploring the conversion of the Brahman youth, they denounce the attack made upon the missionary and the convert. This incident well illustrates the attitude of the people in many parts of India. A later report affirms that the young man returned to his father's home under the promise that he should be allowed to hold fast to his Christian faith, but that subsequently he yielded to the tremendous pressure brought to bear upon him not to break caste. W bether this report is true or not, no doubt he has been subjected to trials of which those in Christian lands can have little conception.
The correspondent of The English Independent, in Northern India, reports an interview with Dr. Thorold, who accompanied Captain Bower in his recent famous expedition across Tibet to Western China. Dr. Thorold made a special study of the religious life of the Tibetans, and he declares that they hold a form of Buddhism which has all moral life sifted out of it. He speaks of the people not so much as immoral as unmoral, apparently having no conception of virtue. Another obstacle to the conversion of these people is the fact that the lamas, or Buddhist priests, hold the only positions of influence, and they will resist to the utmost the coming of any wbo will destroy the faith of the people in their power.
FIJI. It seems that there are over 10,000 coolies from India now working in the Fiji Islands. Strange to say the immoralities of these coolies have seriously affected the Fijians, and the Wesleyan Missionary Society has sought for and at last found a catechist in India to go to Fiji as missionary to his countrymen.
Notes for the Month.
SPECIAL TOPICS FOR PRAYER.
For the health of missionaries: that they may be strengthened for the special labors which
press upon them; that those who for Christ's sake are constrained to live in surroundings unfavorable to physical vigor may be delivered from the power of disease; that those whose labors are increased by the failing health of associates may not be overborne; and that those who are now kept from their fields of labor by reason of impaired health may be
restored to the work they love, DEPARTURES.
