10 But now, O Lord, behold, we have endured all these days, and have borne sufferings. Make these forty-three days an equivalent for the one hour in which we transgressed." 鈥楬e courteously addressed me, sat down, and prepared for a t锚te-脿-t锚te with the Englishwoman. He told me that he had none of our books; that he wanted a controversial one, that he might compare the two religions. There was no appearance of bigotry at all. He asked me whether we read prayers. I told him that we not only had regular prayer, but that we sang God鈥檚 praises,鈥攚hich the Muhammadans never do,鈥攁nd opening my Bible, I read aloud several passages in which Hasrat David (Saint David) commands us to do so. My gentle Maulvi made no observation on this proof that Christians pay more obedience than Muhammadans do to the commands of one whom both acknowledge as a Prophet.... 鈥楪ood-night, my Leila. May the Almighty make you, my dear Godchild, as unselfish, conscientious, and lowly as was the loved one by whose grave I am to stand to-morrow.鈥? 鈥淒unno, ma鈥檃m; great Christian, I know,鈥攎ember of the Methodist church, anyhow.鈥? Charlotte Tucker鈥檚 stern side seems to have come out[227] in this stormy interview with the furious old lady. 鈥楢re you not afraid,鈥?she demanded, 鈥榯hat God鈥檚 anger is on you? You have been your son鈥檚 enemy. When affliction comes, remember,鈥攔emember,鈥擱EMEMBER!鈥? 鈥榃hat fearful people the Nihilists are! When one reads of them, one seems to see Satan let loose! There is some similarity between India and Russia. Perhaps some years hence a Nihilist crop may rise from tens of thousands of sharp conceited lads whom the Government so carefully educate without God! They cannot possibly all get the prizes in life which they look for; they won鈥檛 dig,鈥攕o will naturally swell the dangerous classes. Such dear lads as we have here will be, we trust, as the salt in the mass. But they may have a difficult work before them.鈥? 一本道高清到手机在线 � ???I farther cou'd inlarge upon this Theme, It is always a difficult question to decide in such cases what does or does not constitute luxury. For example, the number of servants kept, which often startles an Englishman, is unavoidable to some extent, arising from the very low wages given, and the small amount of work which each servant will undertake. Indian servants sleep often in the verandah or in outside huts, and provide their own food out of their small wages; so, keeping several of them is a very different matter from keeping many English servants. Moreover, an Englishman, still more an Englishwoman, labouring in such a climate as that of India, must as a matter of simple safety have many things which in England would be entirely needless. To walk any distance under the heat of the Indian sun would for the ordinary European often mean death. To 鈥榬ough it,鈥?to brave the climate, to be reckless of hardships, would in the majority of instances be tantamount to suicide. Yet, on the other hand, it may well be that under the guise of necessity some things not necessary have here and there crept in. A story has been told of an officer, himself a hearty supporter of Missions, who received a very unfavourable impression of one particular Missionary from observing the large amount of comfortable furniture which arrived at the said Missionary鈥檚 bungalow, for the latter鈥檚 use. The officer felt at once, as he said, that the Missionary 鈥榳as not made of the right stuff.鈥?He may have judged hastily, and he may have been mistaken. It is by no means impossible that the Missionary may have been 鈥榦f the right stuff,鈥?despite his superabundance of home-comforts. Nevertheless, such judgments will be passed, and it is well if Missionaries can live a life that shall render them uncalled for. � Conceal an ambushed friend, and at a word
