The lecture was illustrated with curios and various articles made and used by the natives, which showed that a primitive life prevails among them The natives lead a life of ease the women doing the work svhich needs to be done and which consists or about eight days' work a year to procure a livelihood for the family. Half of each day the year round is spent at the market selling and buying and peddling novro TUn -- ,_ . . .. be rebuilt about every three years, within which time termites succeed in ruining them,'the mission- :iry declared. They're Not Happy "While they seem to be a happy people, yet they are not; fear is their tragedy," said Mr. Keeper. "They are constantly haunted by the spirits of departed relatives whose delight it is to vex them. "The birth of twins is considered a very evil omen. In former times both mothers and new-born babes were put to death, until the British government stepped in and prohibited this practice by law The killing of twins, however, has continued secretly until the present time. But as a monument to the power of Christ's gospel, 16 sets of twins are today living among the clan of 50,000 people, whom our two missionaries and' their wives and one deaconness have served for little over one year. Accordingly, it is assumed that about that many sets of twins were strangled annually. "Thus the Christian religion is not only preparing the natives for D q m o h the lite of the hereafter, but is also delivering them from the haunting fears which daily obsess them. Practice Polygamy Polygamy is an existing evil among them, a man being entitled to as many wives as he is able to purchase at $20 apiece, the speaker stated. Wives welcome the addition of more wives, since their portion of the work is lessened thereby. A girl having re- cejved an eighth grade education is worth S150 in marriage. The problem of polygamy, however, is bong successfully solved, the natives yielding to the precepts of the Christian religion. Pastor Keeper will again return to the field after his physicians have declared him sufficiently recovered from a tropical sickness which he contracted while there and for which reason he was given a leave of absence to the states to procure medical treatment. Several southern states are experimenting w i t h the use of cotton fabric in voad construction.
