(Dr. Anna Dengel, the author of the interesting subjoined sketch, was for several years after her gradua- tion in Cork, a member of the mis- sion board of the Mill Hill Fathers, laboring as a medical missionary in Kashmir and the Punjab, so that she knows Kurshed and her sis tei~ and brothers intimately. About three years ago, she came to America and established the Catholic Medical Mis- sion House at Brookland, D. C., where a group of professional women doctors, trained nurses and pharm- acists--are prepared for work in India. One member of the band was already left for the work among peo- ple such as those introduced in the article which follows: By Anna Dengel, B. Sc., M. B. Kurshed first met the doctor Memsahibs at the mission dispensary as a patient. One day she clung to poor Baby in the cold stable was to get the warm breath of the old cow. As often as she came to bhe doc- tor's bungalow during tile Christmas season, she went to the Crib first and looked again and again. After Twelve Months A busy year rolled on, and the same little Crib stood in the doc~or Memsahtba's room. Kurshed, still a faithful visitor, saw it, paused before it -but asked no questions. During the Christmas season, she introduced her little friend Begam. Very soon Begam also discovered the Crib and exclaimed; "Look ~t the Babe (baby) !" Indignantly, Kurshed turned to her and said: "You silly, this is not an ordinary babe, it is Esa Masse,e( Jesus Christ) and this lady with ~he blue savi is Mariam, the Mother of God. And Yusuf made tables and chairs for them. And it was very cold for the Babe; the wind need of such treatment. The result of this policy is manifesL ALMOST ALIGHT Mrs. Newlywed was very much distressed. Her husband had caught a bad cold and, fearing flu, his wife decided to take his temperature. This she found to be rather dangerous and so she phoned the doctor: "Hello, doctor!" she said. "Could you come and seemy 'husband a.t once? His temperature frightens me." "What is the temperature?" asked the medical man. "One hundred and thirty-eight," returned the woman. "Well, I am sorry," answered the other, "but the case is beyond my skill; you'd better send for the fire brigade !"---Answers. the Memsahiba's coat and followed blew in; there must have been holes MINOR ORDERS in the wall, it was only a place for] her to the bungalow.

When Kurshed was not engaged in sweeping or minding the baby broth- er, she would dance around her friend, the doctor, and forget her troubles in the company of the white lady. She was very clever and ob- servant, and therefore soon knew the ins and outs of her friend's room. At Christmas she brought her grand- mother, a kindhearted, shrivelled-v/p old lady. Kurshed tapped gently on the verandah door. Both visitors took off their heelless shoes and were ready to enter when the doctor Mem- sahibs appeared on the scene. The old lady lifted her burke (veil) ; her face was all lit up with delight. She was so happy to present the gifts of the season, a cake and fruit. Stroking the recipient gently on the back, she wished a happy barn din (big day.) Discovery of the Crib Kurshed meanwhile made the rouhds of the room and announced the discovery of something Which she had never seen before and of which she wanted a detailed explanation. It was/the Christmas Crib in the corner dimly lit by red vigil lights. The explanation was gladly and easily given. The whole scene spoke for it- self, so to say. The Infant Jesus with His outstretched arms, and His win- ning litle face appealed to her; and ttazrat Mariam, the Mother of the Infant God, was so beautiful and dignified; Hazrat Yusuf (St. Joseph) had a long beard like her venerable- looking grand father. She did not know anything about donkeys but she was familiar with cows. In her own mud-home in the bazaar, two buf- felons and a little calf occupied the ~irst apartment at the entrance, and her family the one adjoining. She could easily understand how glad the rupt and emberrass them. The Crib had done its work! A NEW SOLUTION A news item from Texas indicates that the Lone Star State has a mod- ern Solomon on the bench. Many wearers of the ermine may learn a lesson. The judge in question had fifty-four divorce cases on his docket. He granted just four divorces. He admitted that "it took a little diplo- macy to get the applicants to go back and live together again." If this be indicative of the judge's dealings with marital discontent, he deserves both fame and praise. The average divorce is bred in courtship and not in court. Though the court may not be accountable for the many divorces it has a certain accountabi- lity in its relation to the divorce problem. It would seem that this Texas judge has taken the thought to heart.
