PART I

TEXT AND TRANSLATION

 

SUBDIVISION OF LABOUR REQUIRES THAT INTERNATIONAL
AGENTS SHOULD DEVOTE THEMSELVES FIRST TO LANGUAGES,—
THEIR MEANS OF OPERATION,—AND NEXT TO THE STUDY OF MAN,
AS AN INDIVIDUAL AND IN COMMUNITIES.

 

A NEW CHINESE LANGUAGE OF VASTLY GREATER CAPACITY
THAN THE OLD IS COMING INTO USE THROUGH THE CURRENCY OF
NEWSPAPERS, THE INFLUENCE OF WHICH IS PERHAPS THE
GREATEST OUTWARD FORCE IN CHINA TO-DAY, AND IN SPITE OF
POLICE SURVEILLANCE TENDS TO INCREASE.

A. H. SMITH, D.D.
