farmers, who raise large crops ol Uieeerenls; others
follow btock raising to a considerable extent. Some
have large paMuios, thore being two oat of town
one for horses, the other for cattle. Here in our

leading occuihUioiis of our village, but there are
many minor ones too numerous to mention.

In the Nineteenth Century for October, Mr. E. G.
Salmon contributes an article on "Bciks for Girls."
Mr. Charles Welsh, the publisher, sent out to various
school for girls the question, "W ho i&your favorite
author?" and rejecting all names whidi are not
mentioned live times, Mr. Salmon tabulates the
result as follows:

" This analysis of the voting, ns it may be called,
suggests," bays Mr. Salmon, "some curious re
flections to those who have ntaJl studied gills"
literature. Hardly one of the recognized writers
for girls is mentioned. Mr. Welsh is, doubtless,
correct when ho Mirmises that much of tho popu
larity, from the publisher's point of view, or
'books for girls' is due to the fact that they are
bought by parents nnd friends Tor pi taenia. If girls
wore to choose their own books, in other words,
they would make a choice for themselves very
diil'ercut from that which their ciders make for

OUR RURQL TOPICS,
Some Practical Suggestions for Our
CAItE OF YOUNG ANIMALS.
Young animals at this season arc very sus
ceptible to cold aud dampness, and any check
through failure to supply a sufficiency of food
at regular periods, orcxposurcTtowet aud cold,
may produco injurious results. Young colts at
this season should bo allowed to rcinaiu with
their clams as long as they will suckle, as but
little work is required of breeding inarcs during
tho "Winter, aud if tho mare3 givo largo quanti
ties of milk tho colta will grow rapidly. Whcro
tho young stock is dependent upon the dams
the food must bo of a kind that produces milk
rich in nil the elements necessary for struct
ural growth. Ground oats twico a day, with a
plentiful supply of hay, will afford an abun
dant amount "of nourishment in tho shapo of
milk, and on cold days au allowance of corn
meal may be given with advantage.
Young calves are often deprived of the milk
that naturally should go to them, owing to its
tho skim milk usually allowed. Unless judg
ment is exercised in feeding tho calves scours
will result, from tho effects of which the calves
do not recover until they have beon seriously
injured in growth. Young pig3 that havo been
suddenly weaned, aud especially if taken from
tho sows too soon, aro often "stunted" in such
manner us to debar them from becoming largo,
heavy hogs at any timo. It is important to ho
careful in Winter, for the reason that when tho
young stock is weakened through mistakes in
feeding the cold weather often comes upon them
at a timo when thoy aro physically unablo to
It is best not to wean tho youug stock too
soon, hut if it becomes necessary to do so, tho
feeding should ho dono often, and, if possible,
tho food should ho warm. Tho younger nu ani
mal, the moro rapid it3 growth aud tho moro
frequent its times of feeding; honce, when they
aro allowed only thrco meals a day, tho same
as the adults, they do not thrive as they do
whenfed oftcucr and iu smaller quantities.
Dieting tho animals is necessary in Winter, iu
order to avoid costivencssof tho bowels, as well
as indigestion, and thercforo the adults and
young stock should rcccivo succulent food,
such as cusilagoor roots, but in the caso of tho
young stock roots without ensilage may be fed
cooked if they aro old enough to cat well. Tho
djetiug of young stock by fecdiug a variety of
food as they aro gradually weaned will save
them much sickness, as they aro easily affected
by sudden changes.
Thcrimrncwi GardVii offers this advice on tho
subject: "Most nuts will not sprout after thoy
have become thoroughly dry, and should therc
foro bo planted :ts soon as ripe. If the ground
is iu proper condition tho best plan is to plant
the nuts just where the trees aro wanted. A
mellow, moderately rich Eotl, covering tho nuts
two or thrco inches deep and packing the earth
firmly over them, is all that is needed. If it is
not practicable to plaut in the Full, or where
squirrels and Held mice abound, which aro very
apt to steal tho nuts, it is hotter to defer plant
ing until Spring. In this caso tho nuts have
to bo kept in sand over Wintor. To pre3ervc
nuts ovcrWinter taken box which should not
bo watertight cover tho bottom with about
threo inches of fino sand, spread a laycrof nuts
over it, cover with sand, aud eo on, finishing off
with a thrco-iuch covorlug of sand ; placo out
doors aud cover with soil. In Spriug, as early
as possible, plant in nursery rows, or in tho
places where tho trees aro to remain perma

national Sunday-school Lessoa Appointed for
Dec. 5. Uct., 5:1-11.
One reading these notes should first carefully
study tho paragraph from the Holy Scriptures 03
Tito book of Eevolation was written by St.
John on the Island of I'utmos, in tho iEgean Sea,
in about the year 0G, A. D. St. John was a son
of Zebedco and Salome and brother of St. James
the Greater, who, though an Apostle, wroto no
part of the, book of tho New Testament. Tho
Emperor Domitian had sent St. John into ban
ishment on account of his being a Christian.
In tho year GG Domitian was succeeded by
Ncrva, who being moro clement released thoso
whom Domitian exiled, among them St. John.
Ncrva ruled two years and Trajan became Em
peror. It was during the reign of tho last that
St. John died. Tho writer of tho Revelation
must havo been about 100 years old when ho
wrote lie died soon after.
Thcro is much of tho last book of tho Eiblo
which can bo oxplaincd without great diffi
culty. Uack of much of it, however, there is
deep mystery. Wo shall do well to seizo upon
tho apparent, practical, and that uppermost in
present profitableness, for our study hour in
Sunday school. Wo could spend all tho timo
in discussing a singlo word or verse, but the
lesson includes 1-1 verses. A German professor
can deliver several interesting lectures on tho
first letter of tho alphabet; so a teacher can
allow tho whole hour to pass in debating differ
ent opinions held on a singlo phrase of a verse.
What the teacher wants in each Sunday session
is to impress on tho class tho uso which can bo
mado at homo, in school and out iu socioty of
tho lesson3 taught by the paragraph appointed
for study each Lord's Day.
Chapters 2 and 3 of tho Revelation give
the letters sent to tho seven churches.
(1: 11.) Those seven churches represent all
tho churches then or to be. Tho letters
sent wero not for tho seven churches only,
hut for all churches through all time nnd
iu all places. Practically tho seven churches
comprehend Christ's Kingdom on earth. Then
tho object of tho remaining chapters of tho
Revelation is to picture forth tho work, experi
ences, trials, victories, rewards, encouragements
of Christianity. We aro taught tho relation
between Heaven and earth. Wo find Christ
interested not only in founding tho Church,
but in all its progress through timo. Wo see
augel3 concerned about salvation. If tho Church
has enemies it also has friends. If earth op
pose, Heaven is in sympathy with it. If Dom
itian persecute, Uod sustains.
St. John was shown in a kind of vision tho
ovents to occur iu tho ccuturies to come The
history of tho Church moved along before his
oyes in a kind of panorama so distinct that it
could be written up a3 a historian prepares his
volumes from data gathered. Thus the Apos
tle was ablo to seo how Heaven and earth act
on each other1 how tho history of earth,
though it be tho product of voluntary human
operations, is toned, modified, shaped, controlled
overruled iu Heaven ; how actors in this world
aro inspired and strengthened by inllucnccs
from Panuliso aud Heaven; how enemies of
Christianity aro restrained, outmatched, out
witted and often vanquished by tho powers
above It can be seen how encouraging to tho
Christiau world must be tho Revelation and
what reason we should study it.
God is represented as sitting on a throne in
Heaven. (V. I, and 4: 2, 3.) Human form and
acts aro ascribed to him to bring him moro into
our comprehension aud sympathy. So ho has
hands, sits, looks, etc.
In God's right hand tho Apostle saw a book
with seven seals. This means that God i3
about to rovcal tho future The events to
occur are imagined written in a volume To
learn the scries of circumstances destined to
exist in the history which the Church is to
make, it is only necessary to read tho record.
So God wa3 nbout to givo to tho world,
through St. John, a statement in advance of
events which could be expected to attend the
onward march of Christianity. Books in early
days wero not printed and on successive leaves,
but written on rolls called scrolls, tho rolls
being sometimes written on both sides. Henco
our word volume, which mcan3 a roll. Ono
side is read as you unroll, the other side as you
roll. Along at different distances tho scroll
had seals fixed. In tho caso of our lesson there
were seven such seals. TIicso could bo readily
Eccnou tho ends of tho roll. To unseal meant
to unroll, and to unroll meant to read. But
tho real signification is that God told to St.
John tho events to occur, aud that tho Apostto
followed, writing his statements asanamanu
ensis. What God had scaled no man dared unseal.
To violato tho rights of a seal was a capital
crime What God would havo secret no ono
can Know. Who then can ten tuo liuuro
Who can unseal tho book which sets forth
history to be mado? Nono other than Tho
Word, the Jnnifestatiou of Deity, tho One who
knows God as God knows him Jesus Christ,
styled the Lion of the triho of Judah, (Hob., 7:
11,) the Descendant from David as a root. St.
John was evidently anxious to know the
future He was filled with disappointment at
the thought no ono could reveal the destiny of
the Church. Ho had fear tho promise mado
(1:1) was to fail, to wit, "I will show theo
things which must be hereafter."
Wc must remember that the consolation of
tho vision given to St. John did not depend on
God's omuiscicuco alone, but on his omnipo
tence It was not God's purposo to tell the
Apoatlo what was to happen, hit or miss, at tho
bauds of human beingi, but to declare to him,
nnd through him to tho Church at large, how
ho (God) was determined to manipulate mun
dane affairs nnd force them to coutributo to
tho growth of the Kingdom of God on earth.
St. John was greatly concerned to foreknow
tho divine program, so as to forewarn and fore
arm tho Church for opposition, to comfort it in
trial, and to cheer it for duty.
What it was wicked for man to peer into,
(V. 3.) Christ could forseo aud reveal by naturo
and right. (V. D.) Ho was, howovcr, eclectic in
this. After all, wc learn very littlo of the fu
ture It was not God's plan to removo all
mystery, all demand for faith, all inspiration
for healthy and animating curiosity, all call
for study, work, patience But sotno rovola
tion to thoso destined to great trial, discour
ngomont, sorrow, was well, as affording courago
to face a future, even yet left quite dark aud
Tho revised translation ha3 for " man " in
V. 3 "ouc." It was a belief that the departed
dead wero under tho earth. Wo all allow they
nro as to their bodies. So verse 3 means that
no being already iu Heaven, no inhabitant
of earth, and no occupant of Hades (or the
place of departed spirits) could opon tho book
i. c, was ablo to foretell tho future No ono
but God knows what coming centuries have in
Storo for the Church.
It is difficult to explain who aro meant by tho
four beast3 and the 21 eldors. " Beasts " is not
a correct translation, and "living creatures "of
tho revised rendering is hotter. All thoso wero
indebted to Christ as Savior, (Ys. 8, 9,) and henco
wero of tho redeemed. They probably stand as
representatives of tho Church.
Most prominent of all was tho Lamb. (Y. G.)
Iu the verso beforo ho is callod tho Lion.
Strength and tondemoss combine in Christ.
(St. Johu, 1 : 29, 3G.) Horns symbolize power,
aud eyes intelligence Seven is tho perfect
number, and the scuso is that Jesus is omnipo
tent und omniscient. Christ n Lamb slain 1
There is power in inuocence Thoro is gran
deur in suffering.
It was left to Christ ulono to rovcal tho ftituro
of tho Church. As soon ns ho is recognized and
it is known ho is to make a revelation of what
tho Church may expect as its futuro career,
thcro is joy among all tho saints. Thoy know
ho had power and authority. Having interest
ed himself even to tho coit of life, none could
question his worthiness to act in nil that relat
ed to tho welfare and happiness of tho Church.
Tho augcls, too, (V. 11,) declare tho fitness of
Christ to bo tho medium of communication be
tween Heaven aud earth. So groat i3 tho joy
that all animated nature is supposed, with a
kind of poetic liconse, to rcalia tho event and
to burst forth iuto exclamations of praise
The universality of salvation is seen in tho
fact the redeemed aro " out of ovory kindred,
nnd tongue, and people, and nation." (V. 9.)
Christ was of Judah as to his birth, but ho was
cosmopolitan in his death. Notico tho expres
sion, "Sent forth iuto all tho earth." (V. C.)
It was this same Christ who promised to bo
with his Disciples ovorywhero and in all ages.
Evidently St. John's anxiety was not duo
simply to personal consideration. Tho future
of earth was little to him. He was so aged ho
knew ho must soon die He was concorucd for
tho Church after his decease No one should
be satisfied if provision bo made for his present
ago and section alone He should feci anxious
for tho generations to como and pavo their way
the best ho can.
God is tho Fountain of all Knowledge He
13 omniscient. Henco wo should seek wisdom
from him. (Jos., 1 : 5.) Nothing will over oc
cur unexpectedly to God. No ono can outwit
his knowledge. No ono can outflank his forces.
However mysterious things seem to us thoy aro
clear to God.
