the state of Oregon and contains
17 millions of people. To under,
stand this situation, however, one
mutt remember that in many Ori

ried when very young, the wife
often not making the husband's
home her own for some years. In
this connection. Miss Kfm's com
ments were pertinent. She said,
"I cannot understand your , di
vorces. In my country a girl has
no choice as to whom she marries,
yet there is no divorce. In your
country, a girl may marry whom
she will and your divorces are ap
palling." . Miss Kim's age, reckoned by
our methods, Is 24 years. In Ko

son is thisr In many of the Far
Eastern countries, a child is reck
oned a year old on the day of its
birth. This is true in Koreabut
here , is a variation in the usual
custom. On New Years day every
one has a birthday. Thus, a child
born near that time has two birth
days verv close together the one
on the day of birth, the other on
New Year day which is thereafter
considered its real birthday.
The ypung Korean student will
continue her musical studies in
Portland for some time under the
direction of Professor David
Campbell of the Ellison-White
conservatory. Miss Kim's musical
education here Is a contribution
by the Ellison-White people to the
Korean mission work.

What was the first prophetic word that rang
When down the starry sky the angels sang,
That night they came as envoys of the Birth
What word but peace, "peace and good will on earth?'
And w hat was the last word the Master said
That parting night when they broke brother-bread,
That night he knew men would not let him live
Oh, what, but "peace I leave" and "Peace I give?"
And yet behold : near twice a thousand years
And still the Dattle-wrath, the grief, the tears.

And men cry back to God, "There shall be Peace!"
