THE MISSION FIELD

The Rev. F. P. Joscland. lute of Amoy, China, gave a*i address yesterday afternoon in the Moray Place Congregational Church to members of the Otago Ladies’ Auxiliary of the Loudon Missionary Society. Mr Joselaml spoke of the good work done by women missionaries in China, explaining that their entry into the homes o? the people had overcome one of the greatest difficulties that the men engaged in the Christianising of China had to face. These women, in addition to teaching in the schools, taught the Chinese women in their homes with remarkably good results. This, he-said, was a complete answer lo (hose who claimed that it- was not a proper thing for women to go out among the Chinese. In the-evening Mr -lose'.and gave an address in the Kavensbourne Congregational Church. He referred to the general influence of the Christian ideas on the Chinese, and said that it had been so marked that the ideas of the people had been revolutionised, and there came over the country a great change as compared with what it was like under the old Manchu Government’s regime. The influence against opium was most marked, and the growing of the, poppy was prohibited, as also were opium dens. No mandarin was allowed to smoke opium, and the Government of the day were accepting the higher ideals of the Christian teaching.
