THE FOREST CITY COURIER* FOREST CITY, N. C.
OF CHINESE GODS
Writes Especially of the Farm-;
j ers' God Who Rules Agri- j
! . |
| c P. O. Box No. 12154, Shanghai,,
| China, Nov. 6, 1930.
i Dear Editor: —You doubtless have j
. m&ny readers .among farmers whom ■
| the Chinese class as second only to j
[ the officials. They may be interest-j
;ed in the god I enclose. He is "San-,
j da-loh-te" the one Chinese farmers j
| worship to get good harvests.
! Though "highly civilised" China
lis a country of idols and idol-voi
| s hip. The people have gods for every j
purpose and need and for each and j
! every class and occupation. I some- j
times think China has as many gods j
as people! This farmers' god is real
ly named meaning "grain
god." "San-da-loh-te" describes him
."Three-heads-six-hands" god. The
Chinese often call men and gods this
way, as Mr. One-eye or Mr. Pot
mark, or 'Mr. Crooked-foot, .or Mi.
Iron-crutch. You will notice that
the god I send has six hands. In the
upper two hands he carries the sun
(red) and the moon (green). If he j
turns the sun and moon properly the .
seasons come to the advantage of j
the farmers. If not, then Spring, j
Summer, Autumn and Winter are
In • the second pair of hands are
the "rain-bell" and the "wind-charm"
(7 stars of Great Bear). With these
he governs the winds 'and the rain
jso as to give the farmers (if he is
j pleased with them) sufficient wind!
'and rain to make crops grow quickly]
j and abundantly. Koh-zen's third two j
[hands grip two swords. With these!
!he slashes all the devils who would
destroy or harm the crops or farms, j
Koh-zen has two eyes for each of his
three heads and an extra 6ne for
good measure. Seven is a "perfect
number." With his seven eyes he can
see everything perfectly. He can so
! see the needs and supply thm. He
jean see the dangers and devils and
i repel them. Is he not a useful sort
*of fellow? But. they must worship
j him faithfully to keep him pleased.
;He is worshipped chiefly in the Spring
' enough to last the whole year. They
J set a fine feast before him and burn
! candles and incense, themselves eat
l ing what he leaves!
The eight red characters express
their prayers, "S-kyi bing-an, Zan
hwa mo-zwen" —May the four sea
) sons be peaceful, the silk and pro
jduce be abundant. The figure above
j is the "Pa-kua," a highly valued and
much used charm. The four gods at
| tending Koh-zen are powerful as-
sistants. Koh-zen is very busy and
needs these fellows to run his er
j l ands and carry out his commands
J of mercy. You will thus see how the
Chinese needs and desires are like?
those of Westerners, and how Chin
ese, to meet the needs, work out in
I their gods the attributes suited to
J supply their needs. How we wish they
J knew our one true God and realiz
j ed how He is really living and ablr
) and willing to supply all these pic
jtured needs and all other needs as
It is our joy to live among this
interesting people and lovingly point
them to our wonderful Lord, not
' forcing our religion upon them but
; revealing "a more excellent way."
j for them to adopt or reject according
j to their own sweet will. Pray for this
j great people. May you and your
1 friends have a very Merry Christ-
J mas and a .Prosperous New Year.
Yours in Christ's glad service,
(Rev.) H. G. C. Hallock.

Mr. Wells describes his stop at Nai
"it is a new-looking town, with j
plenty of building in progress. It is j

it is not at all unusual to see ladies |

"Nairobi has several excellent hotels, i

How Word "Fal" Originated
Although "pal" in the sense of » j
chum or companion is regarded as j
American /slang by many writers, it
was probably derived from the gyp

is the word for brother.

Quickly Relieved by this
Here's a doctor's prescription
called Thoxine that is really throat
insurance. Its success is due to its
quick double action. With the very
first swallow it soothes the sore
throat and stops the coughing. It
goes direct to the internal cause.
The remarkable thing abou:
Thoxine is that while it relieves
almost instantly it contains noth
ing harmful, and is pleasant tasting
and safe for the whole family.
Singers and speakers find Thoxine
very valuable. Put up ready for use
in 35c, 60c, and SI.OO bottles. Your

jgood drug stores.
