what -will and what will not make gool
feed. That which has been thickly
town, especially on poor soil, is a light
yellow color, tasteless, and nearly void of
nutritive value. That sown in drills and
cultivated once or twice, is large, thickstemmed
and dark green in color. Taste
It and you find the sweetness that with a
little more room and time would be

According to P. H. Jacobs, poultry
authority, young chicks are partial to potatoes,
and adult fowls also eat them
readily. Save all the small and unmarketable
potatoes and boil them for the
hsus. It is not necessary to mash them,
as the hens know how to eat them withnrrf

of ducks use turnips, cooked and thickened
with bran, for ducklings, and serve

winter. But little grain is necessary if

tie their ration of oats and straw coaether.
For this reason it is well to
^? leave unthreshed such stacks as have best
ind shortest straw. One year we put the
unthreshed oats in the barn, but mice
played mischief with them, so that this
plan is not to be recommended unless
one knows hovr to circumvent the rodents.
Since then we have either carried

ferred a stack or more into the barn by
way of the cutting-box. Mice or rats
cannot burrow in the chopped stuff. So
far as we can discover the grain is as
thoroughly digested by cows when eaten
from the bundle as when the whole is
chopped. The advantage of chopping
comes from having less waste than when
daily carried from the stack, having the
_ fodder under cover and consequent convenience
in feeding. The economy lies

time to tie it first and bank it later, than

of keeping the earth out of the centre

now TREES GROW.
There is rarely sufficient room near any
tree for all the seeds it produces tc
germinate or for the seedlings to develop
into fully grown individuals. Nature is
lavish in sowing seeds that the succession
of the plant may be insured. Most trees
are gregarious, therefore, in extreme
youth, from habit transmitted through
many "generations. They love company,
and really thrive only when closely surrounded.
Close planting is essential,
therefore, to insure the best results. As
the trees grow, the weaker are pushed
aside and finally .destroyed by the more
vigorous, and the plantation is gradually
thinned. This is the operation which is
r -always going on in The forest when man
does not intervene. It is a slow and expensive
operation, however, and the result
is attained by a vast expenditure of
energy and of g.">od material. The
strongest trees come out victorious m the
end, but they bear the scars of the contest
The long, bare tiuak and the small
and misshappen head?the only form of
a mature tree found in the virgin forest
?tell of years or of centuries of struggle,
in which hundreds of weaker individuals
may have perished that one giant may
survive. But man can intervene, and Injudicious
and systematic thinning help
the strong to destroy the weak more
quickly and with less expenditure of vital
force. Thick planting is but following
the rule ot nature, and thinning is only
helping nature do what she does herself
too slowly, and therefore too expensively.
This is why trees in a plantation intended
for ornament, like"" those in a park or
pleasure ground, sbould be planted tmckiy
at first, and why they should then be systematically
thinned from time to time;
and It is because this systematic thinning
is altogether neglected, or put off until
the trees are ruined for any purpose of
ornament, that it is so rare to find a
.really fine tree in any public place or
private grounds. Of the implements required
to produce a fine tree the a^ is
^certainly the first and most important.?

"here are thousand of farmers who do
this very thing. They thresh in some remote
corner and leave the straw on the
ground. I have often counted from five
to eight of these straw stacks on a single
farm, says a writer in the Philadelphia
Presi, each containing one year's crop of
straw. Good, bright wheat or oat straw
has considerably more than half the feeding
value of an average hav, and either
horses or cattle may be -wintered in good
condition with no other rough feed, with
a moderate increase o: the ^rain ration.
It is best that this increase shall be of
bran, oats and oil meal rather than corn.
I have neighbors who bore auger holes in
the floor of their horse stall to allow the
urine to run through, and yet leave stacks
of old straw in the fields. I do not only
bed liberally in the stable, but cover my
barnyard so that it is never muddy and
no liquid runs from it. Weeds, corn
stalks, potato vines, clover straw, etc.,
are 3ll packed into the barnyard. We
have just cut and raked up all our wheat
stubble for this purpose. From a part of
the field we got a full two horse load to
the acre. Eight acres of our wheat that
bad been sown to timothy had made quite
a growth, and as the spring was very dry
the clover was poor. Consequently foxtail
and ragweed made a vigorous start,
but we mowed it early and there will not
be a foul seed on the field, while the
weeds and stubbles will help to keep
the barnyard clean and save the urine.
The last week in August I visited a neighbor
who is a successful wheat grower and
found him spreading straw on a field
which was plowed and harrowed ready
for the drill. He burns this straw and
tells me that many years' experience
shows him that it pays as well as to manure
an equal area. Ilis land is strong
and rich in humus, and while this with
oat doubt is good practice for him oil
thin land it will probably pay better to
plow under straw than to burn it. I
would always, however, if possible, burn
stubble on fields where there has been
chinch bugs. It is well on such fields to
set the machine to cut high so as to leave
enough stubble to burn readily. I have
seen excellent effects l'roni burning stubble

It is a fact, perhaps not known to all,
that one pound of the urine of a horse
has a fertilizing power equal to six
nounds of the dronnincs. and the onlv
way we are likely to save this is by free
use of absorbents. With goo<l management
every farm will furnish enough- of
j these, and it is wise to make tight stable
j floors and bed freely. Even cornstalks
make an excellent absorbent and will
decay more quickly than straw. If cut to
lengths of from six inches to a foot they
make excellent bedding for horses. They
crush easily, and the pith of the stalk
takes up the liquid better than straw. I
scatter the waste of twenty acres of corn
fodder over n.y small barnyard each winter

There are so many traps that wait for a
man's feet. The solid ground may break
through, and the sea?how many dark mysteries
it hides in its bosom! A few counsels,
?' hasty good-by, a last look, and the ropes
rattle, and the sails are hoisted, and the
p?Xnks are hauled in, and Paul is gone. I expect
to sail over some of the same waters
over which Paul sailed, but before rol.ig I
want to urge you all U? embark for Sfrvvu.
The church is the dry dock where sot-'u are
to be fitted out for heaven. In making a vessel
for this voyage, the fhsfc need is sound
the timber. The floor timbers ought to bo
r;f solid stuff. For the ?vasifcof it, vessels that
looked able to rim their jibbooms into t ha eye
of any tempest, when caught in a storm have
been crushed like a wafer. The truths oi"
God's Word are what I mean by floor timbers.
Away with your lighter materials. Nothing
but oaks, hewn in the forost of divine truth,
are stanch enough for this craft.
You must have love for a helm, to guide
md tarn the craft. Neither pride, nor ambition,
nor avarice will do for a rudder.
Love, m;t only in the heart, but flashing in
the eye and tingling in the hand?love married
to work, which many look upon as so
homely a bride?love, not like brooks which
foam and rattle yet do nothing, but love like
a river that runs up the steps of mill wheels
and works in the harness of factory bands?
love that will not pass bv on the other side,
but visits the man who fell among thieves
near Jericho, not merely saying: '"i'oor follow!
you are dreadfully hurt," but, like the

wave that so often sweeps the deck and -fills

Let my give you two or three rules for the
voyage. A How your appetites and passions
only an under deck passage. Do no!; allow
ttiem ever to come up on the promenade deck.
Mortify your members which are upon the
w.->r r-1'oTv vonr lower nature anv
tliiMg better than a steerage passage. Let
wapifuJiieSs walk the deftteas anarmed scn4
ff i i i ? utiiw n ri in?irTf!?n
tinel, and-shoot down with great promptness
anything like a mutiny of riotous appetites.
Be sure to look out of the forecastle for
icebergs. These are cold Christians floating
about in the church. The frigid 2one professors
will sink you. Steer clear of icebergs.'
Keep a log-book during all the voyage?an
account of how many furlongs you make a
day. The merchant keeps a day book as
well as a ledger. You ought to know every
night as well as every year, how things are
i eroin?. When the ernress train stops at the
j dopot you hear a hammer sounding on all
the wheels, thus testing the safety of the
rail train. Bound, as we are, with more
than express speed toward a great eternity,
ought we not often to try the work of selfexamination?
suro to keep your colors up! You know
the ships of England, Russia, France and
Rpain by the ensigns they carry. Sometimes
it is a lion, sometimes an eagle, sometimes a
star, sometimes a crown. Let it ever be
known who you are, and for what port you
are bound. Let "Christian" be written" on
the very front, with a figure of a cross, a
crown anrl a dove: a;i<l from the masthead
let float the streamers of Iinmanuel. Tliea
tin? pirate vessels of temptation will pass you
unharmed as they say: "Thero goes a Christian,
bound for the port of heaven. We will
not disturb her, for she has too many guns
aboard." Run up yoirr flag on this pulley:
'I am not ashamed of the Gospel of Christ,
for it is the power of God and the wisdom of
God unto salvation." "When driven back, or
laboring under great stress of weather?now
changing from starboard tack to larboard,
and then from larboard to starboard?look
above the topgallants, and your heart shall
beat like a war drum as the streamers float
i ?.i *! ? wind f 1>a cirrn of t.hfl cross will lll.lkrt

I Before you gain port you will smell tho
land breezes of heaven: and Christ, the Pilot,
will meet you as you come into the Narrows
of Death, and fasten to you, and say: "When
thou pas.se.st through the waters, I will be
with thee: and through tho rivers, they shall
not overflow thee." Are you ready for such
a voyage? Make up your minds. The gangplanks
are lifting*. The bell rings. All
aboard for heaven! The world is not your
rc\>t. The chaffinch is tho silliest bird in all
thu uartli for trying to make its nest on the
rooking billow. Oh, how I wish that as I embark
for tho Holy Land in the East, all to
whom I preach by tongue or type would em
j bark for heaven. What you all most need is
Cod, and you need Him now. Some of you I
leave in trouble. Things are going very
rough with you. You have had a hard
struggle with i)Overtv, or sickness or persecution
or bereavement. Light after light has
gone out and it is so dark that you can
hardly see any blessing left. May that Jesus,
who comforted the widow of Nain, and raised
thedeeeased to life, with His gentle hand of
sympathy wipe away your tears. All is well.

Tl is prosperity that lulls and trouble that
saves. While tho Israelites were on the

they behaved welJ. After a while, they
prayed for meat, and the sky darkened with
a large flock of quails, and these quails fell in
great multitudes all about them; and the Israelites
