depleted parts of the orchard can be
made very fertile.
The land is checked off at the proper
distances with a good two-horse turn
plow. At the intersections hoics two
feet square are dug, the top soil is
thrown to one side. I use a liberal
anonit of well-decomposed stable ma

stable manure is not available, then I
use from one to two pounds bone-meal,

,%ty E lw iauabe in
formnation is taken from a
g le-ter whviichi the write-r has
reTceived from, Ronad Suiper
140 ,visor. Mr. 'F. II. Owens,
wviio .an authtority On the construe
tionl of l.:y roads. HjTe Saiys:
-The nece.ary fepwntity of !,and on
clay. or chiy on sand. has to be deter
mined by experimIent !ing. Whien the
road has been; prope j, graded. and
the road-be(_d is of sand roundation. the
vlay is spread evenlly ovrthe surface
to a depth of fromn foir to si~x inches,
the dlepth depending on the per cent.
(it sand in the clay. If the -oaad-bed
is cf clay foundation. the sand is
spread onl a little thicker. say from
six to eight inches. The clay or sanld
is simply spread on. not mixed, as the
mixing11 is dlone by she travel over the
road.* which is not interfered with
While the r -ad is in course of con
struction. I find after thorough exper!
muenting that sand on elay does not
give us as good results as clay on s.-and,
on account of the drainiage being in
sufficient under the road-bed and the
clay not being as porous as the sand.
"As to the Curability of the roads
treated in this manner, I will state
that those which were built five years
aigo are in as good condition now
a1S when constructed, and in some in
stances better. Of course the roa(-s
have to be runi over occasional~y and
repaired, wiclh is quickly and easil *y
done. SZometimes when there is mnhnt
tr-avel over the roads small holes will
%vear in them, due to a lack of elay or
sand being not at that particular point.
I find -hsto be the case near Colum
bia where travel is necessarily greaf
er than in the remote scetions of the
country. There are come roads in the
country, constructed five years ago,
that have had no repairs and are now
in firs;t-class condition.
"We have about fou., hundred miles
of public road.-, iuilt on the sand
clay method out of a tetal of about
six hundred and fifty miles in the
country. These roads are giving per
fee 'atsfatin.and have stood the
tests of hard rains and constant travel.
The ecst of constructing roads by this
miethod depends on the amount of
garadingz to be done anC the distance the
sanld or clay has to be .iarled. The
cost of repairs is 7vary slight.
"In construetmlzg roads, by thi-s meth
od #:are must be takent not to g-etsthe
cross-section grade too heavy, as this
Iwill have a tendency to cause the
Isand o: clay to washzl from the sur
face of the road."

Christ's Life.. Lessons From His
Miracles of Healing. Matt. 9:
27-34; 25: 31-40.
Christ is always saying to u2. "'Ac
cordipg to your faith be it unto you''
Faith is the key to all blessedness.
The blind men were healed, not so
much that the. mighit see as that
they might speak. Their gratitude
was better than their vision.
There are still "dumb devils" that
need casting out!
Do you think of Christ as sitting on.
a radiant throne? Think of Him as
suffering in the boav of the next
wretched man whom yoA could help.
The only thing at which Christ
wondered was the splendid faith of a
Gentile. Perhaps He is now wonder
ing at our unfaith.
Christ healed bodies in order to the
far more important healing of souls.
Christ's promise that we should do
"greater things" than He is fulfilled
In the marvels of modern science.
Will Christ answer prayers for
healing now? Yes, if the prayer Is
willing to be denied.
To Christ, the Creator, a sick hu
man body was like a halting machine
to the inventor of it.
There was no 'real marvel in
Christ'. healing; the marvel would
have been if He had kept from heal
ing,-as if a fire should burn without
heat or a lamp without light.
Christ's miracles were the mint
mark stamped upon His teachings.
Healing radiates 'from Christ as
light from the sun, and the true
Christian must reflect it like a mir
Are you trying to heal the sins
and sorrows of those around you?
Has Christ been a Physician to
Are you spreading the prais3 of
the Great Physician?
The medical mission is the out
come of the living teachings of our
faith.-Isabella Bird Bishop.
Christ is now, through His dis
ciples, healing more sick, opening
more blind eyes, binding up more
broken-heated, than He did in Pales
tine eighteen hundred years ago.-F.

The seventeenth anniversary of the .

A complete and attra'tive program
will be prepared, which every chapter
ought to use. It is intended .to be sim
ple, sensible, and full of interest. Its
successful presentation is meant to be
within . the powers of the smallest
chapter, and yet the largest should find
it entirely worthy of being used.
Do not permit any light reason to
interfere with the use of this special
program. It affords every chapter th'e
one opportunity of the year to put its
work fairly and strikingly before the
The whole day may be profitably de
voted to the anniversary theme. Per

preach a special sermon at the morn

understanding with the pastor, so that

Wheat has two uses. It may be
eaten, or it may be sown. Eaten, it
satisfies the appetite of the moment
and ministers to the needs of the body.
Each grain has one grain's value, and
no more. It abideth alone.
Sown, it dies. But out of the death
of the wheat comes the life of the
harvest. The grains are buried in the
dark earth. The fields are brown and
bare above them. But soon there is
a shimmer of green, then a sea of gold.
Each grain of the sowing has risen
from death, but with its life and its
value multiplied thirtyfold.
Life may also be put to two uses.
It may be eaten, or it may be sown.
It may be consumed as it comes, each
day's power antd worth used to satis
fy each day's i:esires. That way there
is~ 'ratification for the moment, but no
gain1 of inhluenre, no strengthening of
the forces of life, no enlargement of
Life may be invested for others.
And that way comes the increa:e ot
