The other evening Io a «troll along
the Bowery with a detective acquaint­
ance we heard the «train* of Chinese
stringed Instruments and turned Into
Mott street In time to witness the a r­
rival of a bride for her wedding cere­
mony at the home of her merchant
dance, snya a writer In the Philadel­
phia Ledger. The bride, we were In­
formed by a dapper young Chinese,
was a “slog-song girl," whose wedding
had been arranged by her father. The
“sing-song girls” are those who have
difficulty In finding a husband and
whose futhers, for a monetary consid­
eration. dispose of them to a Chinese
seeking a wife. It is an ancient cus­
tom In China and one that still holds
good among many of the Chinese here.
They may adopt American clothes and
some American practices, but mentally
they continue as true oriental*. Some­
times the Chinese girl. Influenced by
American ways, chooses her own bus-
hand and sometimes she runs away
with a man belonging to another tong
than that of her father, thereby pro­
voking trouble between the rival so­
cieties. Usually the bride has nothing
to say about her wedding and may
not look upon her Intended until the
night when the feast has been spread
and the wedding music Is heard.

Dr. Frank Crane, writer, after an
Inspection of one of the dreadnanght*
of the United States navy, said: “I
recently had a very illuminating visit
aboard the battleship Tennessee. It
wns illuminating because I found It
not only a fighting machine, but a
schoolhouse. In this age of modern
efficient methods It is only natural
that a wise government provide mean*
to Insure the highest type of person­
nel. Why not? A battleship is per­
haps the most perfect laboratory In
the world. All its machinery must be
the best of Its kind and to maintain
the high standard the United State*
navy has set, It is necessary that the
personnel be highly trained. Education
proved to be a deciding factor and to
further their policy, the Navy depart­
ment has provided enlisted men with a
correspondence course system that is
perhaps the most completely organized
project of its kind In use. It Is com­
prised of 126 courses, prepared by the
leading universities of America. A
program of personal supervision by
naval academy graduates and compe­
tent Instructors Insures a thorough
knowledge of the subject undertaken."

Ject of the Lesson-Sermon in
a lt Churches of Christ, Scientist, on
Sunday. June 30.
The Golden Text was, "O send
out thy light and Ihy truth: 1st
them had me; let them bring me
unto thy holy hili, and to thy taber-
nacks”
IP s a lm a 43:31.
Amon-j Ihe citations which com-

fo llo w ii g from the Clbie:
“All
scripture is given by inspiration of
God, end is profitable for doctrine,
for reproof, for correction, for In­
struction in righteousness” ( II Tim.

The Lesson-Sermon also included
the following passages from tbe
Christian Science textbook, "Sci­
ence and Health with Key to the
Scriptures”, by Mary Baker Eddy:
"For three years after my discov­
ery, I sought the solution of this
problem of M ind-healing.............I
knew the Principle of all harmoni­
ous Mind-action to be God, and that
cures were produced In primitive
Christian healing by holy, uplifting
faith; but I must know the 8clenc*
of this healing, and I won my way
to absolute conclusions through di­
vine revelation, reason, and demon­
stration” (p. 109).
