A certain mother, given to mysti

evening was entertaining visitors.
Suddenly came tho sound of little feet

The motlior raised her hand In solemn

cerned, ono neither loses nor gains
by accepting Christianity. "Know yo

(2) Let us lay emphasis upon
"choose" Religion Is a matter or
choice, for men may servo God or
not as they please. Of courso ho may
compol a man to serve him, but ordi
narily ho does not do this, a man
would bo merely n machlno if ho did.
This liberty of choice Is man's glory
and also his peril. Ab Whlttler says:
Though Qotl bo good, and tree be heaven.
No force dlvlno can love compel;
And though tho song of sins forgiven
May .sound through lowest hell;
The sweet persuasion of his volco
Respects thy sanctity of will.
Ho glvoth day: thou hast thy choice
To walk In darkness still.
(3) Lot us lay emphasis upon
"you." "Judge thereforo yourselves,
brethren, that yo bo not judged of tho

SHEEP RAISING AND WHEAT GROWING
FEASIBLE AND LUCRATIVE COMBINATION
Ability to Utilize and Turn Into Account What Would Otherwise

missioner of Province of Alberta.)
As Bwino growing la tho natural ad

Another fact worth considering 1b
that tho prosenco of a flock of sheop
on a grain farm doos not necessitate
n material reduction In tho area de
voted to grain growing, but on tho
other hand It nevor falls to lnsuij a
larger yiejd of better grain, and It
makes possible tho growing of grain
for a longer porlod of years than can
bo dono without them, or somo other
kind of livestock.
A certain amount of technical
knowledgo regarding sheep, iholr
habits, etc., is necessary to success,
but tho samo Is equally true of all
classea of animals, and amateurs
should acquire this knowledgo with a
email flock In order that their mis
takes do not cost them too dearly.
Tho first step to bo taken when
embarking in tho business of sheop
raising is to enclose at loast ono field
with a coyote-proof fenco. Additional
fields similarly enclosed should bo
provided as occasion requires, or one's
means permit. An effective dog and
coyote-proof fenco can bo made by us

high and attached to tho Insldo of the
posts. A strand of barbed wire should

Serious Troubles One Rem
(By MKS. C. C. THOMAS.)
Most fowls are liberally fat In the
fall, paitlcularly thoso that havo frco

grain, weed seeds, grasshoppers nnd
bugs and as tho grain in the Held
ripens It Is a Btrong temptation to
over-feed tho poultry.
Over-fed hens aro subject to In
flammation ot tho egg passage, nnd
thlB Is a very serious trouble.
Feeding ground popper or other
stimulating poultry feeds to force the
laying Is almost certain to produco
inflammation. The so-called egg feeds
advertised aro many of them without
valuo, In fact they aro harmful.
When tho egg passage becomes'
congested tho hen may burst n blood
vessel In her efforts to expel tho egg
and a fow days later sho will show
signs of weakness, the comb will turn
dull, the temperature fall low and
tho bird will dlo.
Tho first symptoms aro tho droop
ing of the wings, roughing of the
feathers and loss of energy.
It is a good plan to keep the pullets
and the old hens separated becauso
tho hens fatten much quicker than
the pullets on tho same feed.
If a hen Is suffering from inflam
mation of tho egg passago, tho egg
must bo removed soon or tho bird
will dlo. Tills may be accomplished
by covering the flngor with vnsellno
and inserting It into tho egg passage,
moanwhllo pressing gontiy on the left
