Tlie waste of fertilizers through the
careless management of farm manures
throughout the United States is enor

this is totally lost, which means that

Best Absorbent to Use.
The principal value of an absorbent

and thus keep the animal and the
stable clean. A sufficient amount of
finely cut litter should be used to entire
ly absorb the liquids and not pack
down in a wet soggy condition. A
tight gutter with plenty of litter will
solve the problem of saving liquid
manures without the need of a cistern
or drainage pipes, which are difficult
to keep clean.

some crops, and to prevent injury of
this character, it is best to thorough
ly rot the manures conta'ning shav
ings. Tight floors are essential to save
liquids, but most important ls to use
plenty of bedding.
Haul Manure Dally.
The regular spreading of farm ma
nures in the fields daily saves the
greatest amount of fertilizers, as
there is practically no loss from leach
ing. Manure should not be spread
upon frozen ground unless it is level,
or upon 'hilly land where washing
rains are likely to carry it away. On
a flat level field "manure may be
spread on snow with no danger of
loss. When applied to the fields ma
nure should be spread uniformly over
the land and not in small heaps, as
y annually drains away from the ma
san farmers. This loss could easily
the latter method is wasteful of fer
tilizer materials. It also involves
more labor to spread these piles later
in the season, and the pile of manure
can never be so effectively distrib
uted as when freshly hauled.
The rate of application of manures
is frequently too heavy. It is much
better to apply a light application fre
quently and to put the manure on
thickly once in several years. Over
eight to ten tons should never be used
for in such cases a large amount of the
fertilizer is lost and is not saved up
for future crops. Greater yields
will be secured from a giveh
amount of manure by applying
It moderately to a large area than if
lt is applied thicker on a small area.
Loss from drainage is very heavy
where the application Is excessive.
Storing Manure in Piles.
Contrary to the belief of many farm
ers, it is an easy matter to pile ma
nure in the open in a way. that will
allow no loss of fertilizing elements.
The trick of this consists in making a
square or rectangular pile with per
pendicular sides and the top sloping
toward the center so that the manure
will always be kept moist Only dry
manure heats and loses ammonia,
^moisture counteracting this loss.
Storage of Manure In Sheds.
A combined manure storage shed
and shelter for stock may be used to
advantage on many farmB. Where the
manure is so stored lt must be kept
moist, since drying out will re
sult in fire ranging.
Supplementing farm manures with
other fertilizers by mixing them in
the stable is very generally practiced
with good results. One pound of rock
phosphate or floats per day for each,
animal, sprinkled on the manure in
the stable will generally provide suffi
cient phosphate fertilizer to make the
manure ideal for most crops. Other
absorbents, such as gypsum or land
plasters, are quite generally used,
since they aid somewhat in absorbing
Avoid Ashes With Manure.
Farmers need to he cautioned gen
erally against the use of wood ashes
and lime with manure. The ashes
and- lime produce an alkaline condi
tion, resulting in the loss of the am
monia which carries off the nitrogen.
On light soils, where coarse manure
is likely to make the soil still light
er, rotted manure should be used. Ma
nure may be rotted under sheds by
keeping it always moist. If a feed cut
ter is available, it should be used to
cut the litter, as the manure may be
handled easier and its absorbing pow

GOLDEN TEXT-"Thou shalt not make

TIME-Jeroboam reigned 22 years from
B. C. 982, the date of the Disruption.
PLACE-The Disruption took place at
Schechem, between Mounts Ebal and
Gerizlm. He built up this town and made
It his capital. The two religious centers
or capitals were (1) Bethel, 12 miles north
west of Jerusalem, which was an ancient
place of worship. (2) Dan was In the
extreme north, also an . ancient seat of
worship. Bethel on the line of travel
was admirably located to intercept pil
grims to the feasts who would otherwise
have gone on to Jerusalem.
Jeroboambelonged to the tribe of
Ephraim, rre^was born at Zereda In
the Jordan Valley. His father's name
was Nebat and his mother was Zeru
ah. He was one of the common peo
ple, as distinguished from Rehoboam
of the royal family and son of one of
the greatest monarchs the world has
known. He was a man of great abil
ity, a self-made man like so many of
the greatest men in history. So mark
ed as a controller of men, of such
business capacity and energy, did he
show himself in his work on Millo a
fortress of Jerusalem, that . Solomon
placed him at the head of the forced
labor hands of the northern tribes.
Thus Jeroboam became acquainted
with the needs and harsh, unjust
treatment of the people, just as David
did during his seven years of exile
during the reign of Saul. Thus he had
a splendid opportunity for training in
Jeroboam made the mistake of start
ing a rebellion against Solomon. But
Solomon quickly put an end to that
scheme, and Jeroboam escaped into
Egypt, where It Is said that he mar
died the daughter of Sbishak the king
who afterwards invaded Judah. The
announcement war. made in order that
Jeroboam might be prepared for the
time when God's providence opened
the way. Moses made a similar mis
take when he began the deliverance
of his people by killing an Egyptian
in defense of one of his countrymen.
He had to wait 40 years before the
time came. But in both cases the mis
take was overruled for good.
Jeroboam's opportunity lay in the
condition God laid down, that he must
obey God, keep his commandments
and uphold the true religion, If he
would succeed. There was no hope
of success in any other way, from the
very nature of things. A religion
that inspired obedience to God, alone
could unite the people, alone could
keep them from the vices and corrup
tion which are the sources of ruin.
JeroDoam in his desire to retain his
kingdom adopted a plan which would
destroy its very foundations, and
make it a house built on the sand and
not on the rock. He was a politician,
i. e. one who seeks his own welfare
first; not a statesman, who makes his
country's good supreme. He. trusted
his own wisdom, and proposed to sue-!
ceed by defying God's "conditions of
success when he offered him the king
dom. It was the story of Adam and
He feared that he would lose his
kingdom, and the two be united un
der Rehoboam, if his people should go
up to Jerusalem to attend the annual
Jewish feasts prescribed by the law
of God; that unity of religion would
lead to unity of state. He had also
the excuse that Rehoboam was a bad
man, and a cruel oppressor. If the
two kingdoms should unite under him,
they would lose all they had gained
by the revolt.
He made two calves of gold. "They
were probably of considerable size,
and representetd a young but full
grown bull." The Hebrews were fa
miliar with figures of bulls, and "the
most conspicuous object in the courts
of Solomon's temple was its molten
sea, supported on the backs of twelve
bulls." The ox-symbol of God was
most natural for an agricultural peo
ple,, for whom the great animal, so
powerful yet so docile, was the bread
winner, a material embodiment of the
divine strength and beneficence. And
he set the one in Bethel, near the
southern border of the kingdom. And
the other put he In Dan, an ancient
place of heathen worship near the
northern extremity of the kingdom.
And this thing became a sin. The
doing this was a sin, and a means of
Bin. Jeroboam "pandered to the rude,
and sensuous Instinct which makes
materialism in worship so much more
attractive, to all weak minds, than
Jeroboam's sin was disobedience.
The necessity of obedience was plain
ly set before him. In the face of this
condition, he disobeyed. He persuad
ed himself that he was obeying. He
was tempted as Christ was tempted
when Satan offered to give him all
the kingdoms of the world, if only he
would worship him. Jeroboam was
ensnared and yielded to the glittering
temptation in order to keep the king
dom entrusted to him.
Jeroboam's greatest wrong to his
nation was the Introducing of bad
things under the names and auspices
of good things. In the name of the
religion of God, he introduced the
deadly poison of idolatry which would
destroy the true religion. He brought
wolves In sheep's clothing into the
fold of the sheep. This is one of the
most common of Satan's devices.. We
are meeting it all the time in the
adulterations of food under pure food
