Let mo tell you, my dear brother, that
thu silliod and w ickedest thing a man ever
dis's is to reject Jesus Christ. The loss of
tho soul is u mistake that cannot ha cor
rected. It is a downfall that knows no al
leviation; it is a ruin that is rumudiles; it
is a sicknesa that has no medicament; it is
a grave into w hich ii nmn goes but never
comes out. 'fhereloro, putting my iimid
on your shoulder us one brother puts his
linud on tho shoulder of a brother, J say
this day, be manly and surrender your
heart to Christ. You huvo I icon long
enough serving the world; now begin to
servo the Lord who bought you. You
have tried long enough to carry theso bur
dens; let Jesus Christ put his shoulder
under your burden. Do 1 hear any ono
in tho audience suv: "1 mean to attend to
that uftcr awhile; it Is not just tho time?"
It is the ti in.i, for tho simple reason that
you nro sure of no other; und tiod sends
Vou hero this morning, und Ho sent mo
hero to comfort you with this message;
and you must hear now that Christ died
lo siivn your soul, and that if you
wiutt to ho saved vou may
bo saved. "Whosoever will, let him
come." You will never find any inoro
convenient season than this. Koine ol you
have been waiting ten, twenty, thirty,
forty, fifty nud sixty years. On some of
you the snow has fallen. I seo it on your
brow, and yet you have not attended to
lliosu duties which belong to tho very
springtime of life. It is September with
you now, it is Outolstr with you. it is Do
ccuihor with you. I am uo slarmiat. I
simply know this: If a man does not re
pent in this world ho never repents at all.
und that now is the accepted timo, aud
now is tho day of salvation. Oh, put olf
this matter no longer. Do not lura your
back on Jesus Christ, who comes to savo
vou. lest vou should lose vour soul. '

If ow to larrenne n t'oliou Crop.
From tlio Unlurprfso ysriiicr.
That man roust indued bu on inexpe
rienced (armor who does not fully appre
ciate the value, of stable manure in the
cultivation of i cotton crop. And yet in
many sections bf Arkans is there nre farm
ers who nre actually afraid to use it, saying
Unit it will cuuau Ootton to shed in time of
Tho idea no doubt prevails for t'.io reason
flint Arkansas farmers huvo hnd compara
tively little experience with manures and
for tho reason that' tlioso who huvo hud
experience applied it in such a manner us
really to do injury instead of good. To ap
ply manure injudiciously will, of course,
injure any crop.
If shallow furrows aro filled fo tho ton
with strong stablo manure, so that tho
roots ol thu plants, from the timo they
sprout until hurvest time, uro subjected to
its steaming heat and strong absorptive
power, thu plant would be forcud to shed
its leaves, blooms mid even fruit Jiut if
stable manure in pluccd deep enough in
the soil to allow a sullicieut amount of
earth to exist between it nnd the plant
above, so ns to hold thn moisture, the
most gratifying results will be obtained.
No farmer need hnvo any feur of putting
il so deep that thu roots of tho cotton stalk
win lail lo reach It. W hen used in this
manner, our farmers will find that the
more they uso tho better. Of course it
would bu lietter to bavo it broadcast and
plowed under deep, earlier iu tho season,
if the quantity would justify it, but
tho trouble with most farmers is that they
pay so littlo attention to homo-uiado man
ure that the supply is always limited. We
wuro very forcibly' struck by thin false
notion of Arkunsaa farmers while at Arka-
delphia a few days ngo. in tho lots of the
livery statiies ol thai town, ttiero are hun
dreds of tons of (he richest stable mantiro,
the accumulation of three or lour years,
nnd thn proprietors of tho stable said they
had olleied to give It lo auybody who
would haul it out.

From tho Tennew Farmer.
In labial I ol the neglected and unappre
ciated hen of Tunncasoo, wa rise up,
Knocked almnt from pillar to post,
"shewed" off the steps, kicked from the
hny loft and throw o from tho feed trough,
alio is the most abused and mislreatod fac
tor of wealth In our fair land.
What voice has she? Who is her spokes
man? Who cares for her, tbo poor, de
spised, but faithful )ien?
Compare w ith bur tho hog. Tho hog
that wallows and roots iu all bis glory.
Tho hog that is tho sis-culators' pool.
Iho hog that is "cornered" bvtho "bulls"
and "Is ars," that Belts on ' "puts" and
"culls," that govs horl" and "long."
Tho great hog, with which, indeed, we
may gamble to our heart's coutout from
the (our points of the compass.
rrom ull partsol the Slate come reports
of tho condition of tho hog. Then is
much solicitude altuut him. Ho furnishes
us meal that Is often must fed, and larj
1 1 1 nt Is openly adulterated. When we are
iu health and vigor wa may rat his meat
and stomach bis gtcase, but when tho sys
tem Is worn nut and wesk, we turn from
him in disgust The thought of him
mukes us sick. Our digestive organs can
not handle him.
Where do wo then lura (o recuperate
our weakened vitality nnd to regain our
strength and vigor? What is considered
wholesome snd recommended to us then?
Why, chicken soup and soft boiled eggs!
Tho hen. Tho ben and her product
come to our rescuo.
That which agroca with us In sickness
cannot well disagree with us In health.
Why not then, appreciate tho lieu and
exalt her as sho should be?
Small as alio is, sho is not to be do-
iho hog. with ai ,. no iiiKgi.siines. and

Puget Sound has a shoro lino of 1,800

farther than tho oyo can reach, is ouo vast

600,000,000 feet of lumber out of them
yearly ior more thou ton yeurs, and tho

Olllciul estimate places tho amount of
