TKXT- "Watch therefore: for ye know
?not what hour your Lord doth ocrr.e."
I. That f o
which we are to
watch is the re
turn of our Lord
and Savior Jesus
Christ to this
earth. We seem
shut up to this
thought both by
the context of the
passage and the
parallel places in
the other Gospels.
It is, in addition,
the ?implest teach
ing of . the New
witness the words
in I Thess. 1:9, 10, "ye turned to God
from idols to serve the living and true
Cod: and to wait for his son from
II. Th? difficulty of watching te
Illustrated in the drowsiness of the
disciples in Gethsemane-"What, could
ye not watch with me one hour?"
v.Matt. 26:40). The spirit was willing
hut the flesh was weak. A condition
of things quite as likely in the region
of spiritual truth, if one may judge
by the frequent appeals co Christians
to awake out of sleep, see Ephes.
5:14; Rom. 13:11. 12; I Cor. 15:34;
1 Thess. 5:6. There are few of us
who are not aware of this from actual
?experience, alas! As in the physical
so in the spiritual sense, the longer
. ~we have to watch the more difficult !
. a task it becomes.
III. The danger of not watching is
seen In our Lord's warning to the
church at Sardis-"If therefore thou j
shalt not watch, I will come to thee
as a thief" (Rev. 3:3.) "The thief1
?cometh not but for to steal, and to
kill, and to destroy" (John 10:10). I
This last figure is partly interpreted
by another in which Christ says:
"But and if that evil servant shall say
in his heart, my Lord , delayeth his
coming; and shall begin to smite his
fellow servants, and to eat and drink
with the drunken: the lx>rd of that
servant shall come In a day when he
looketh not for him. and In an hour
that he is not aware of, and shall cut
him asunder, and appoint him his por
tion with the hypocrites: there shall
"be weeping and gnashing of teeth"
IV. The accompaniments of watch
" (1) Prayer (Mark 13:33)-To pray
aright is to watch, but surely he ls
not watching who is not praying?
Hence "men ought always to pray"
(Luke 18:1. Not that we must ever
he in the external attitude of prayer,
as when the Pharisees loved to pray
standing at the corners of the streets,
hut that our inward habit should be
one of daily communion with God, for
he heareth us always.
(2) Service-"loins girded about"
(Luke 12:35). See I Kings 18:46,
Prov. 31:17, 19. ft is the slothful
servant who is not watching. The
"busy servant may not have the partic
ular thought of his Lord's return mo
mentarily present to his mind, but it
?8 nevertheless the underlying motive
.of his activity.
(3) Testimony-"your lights burn
ing" (Luke 12:33t). He who is watch
ing for his Lord's return is speaking
of it, witnessing for him. "Ve shine
as lights In the world; holding forth
the word of life" (Phil. 2:15. 16) that
others may see the way of life.
. V. The rewards of watching are:
(1) Escape from danger-"Watch ye
therefore . . . that ye may be ac
counted worthy to escape all these
things that shall come to pass" (Luke
21:36). Compare the context and the
parallel passages with II Thess. 1:5-9.
(2) Bestowal of divine honor.
"Blessed are those servants, whom the
Lord when he cometh shall find watch
ing: verily I say unto yon, that he
shall gird himself, and make them to
sit down to meat, and will come forth
and serve them" (Luke 12:37). It is,
of course, impossible to apprehend the
meaning of this promised felicity
<Isaiah 64:4); we simply know that
our Lord's language implies an exal
tation beyond our highest thought.
(3) Increase of power and opportu
nity. "Who then ls a faithful and
wise servant, whom his Lord hath
made ruler over his household, to j,lve
them meat in due season? Blessed is
that servant, whom his Lord when
he cometh shall find so doing."
All hail, the Coming Son of God.
He's Coming back again.
He's Coming In the Clouds of heaven.
He's Coming back again to reign!
Sinners whose sins are washed away?,
Nor left a single stain.
Go. hall, the Advent of your Lord.
He's Coming back to reign!
Let every kindred, every tribe.
Free of Creation's pain.
Aloud Acclaim His Welcome back,
He's Corning back to reign!
Ah! soon wiin all the ransomed throng,
Beholding Him once slain.
We'll see the rolling cloud, and shout
He's Coming back to reign!
WATER REQUIRED BY SHEEP
Costs More and More to Produce Meat
as Moisture Decreases and Dry
Experiments have shown that cat
tle given plenty of water with their
pasture contained more moisture and
leas dry matter than did the carcasses
of cattle given pasture, but no ad
ditional moisture. It is a generally
accepted principle of feeding that lt
costs more and more to produce
meat as the moisture decreases and
the dry matter increases. From
this we are able to deduce the fact
that it cost less to grow the steers
that have plenty of water, and so
made watery carcasses than It did
to grow steers that had no water
other than in their food and pro
duced a dry carcass.
What ls true in the cases of steers
would hold equally true with sheep.
Sheep given plenty of water will pro
duce mutton'more cheaply than will
those deprived of it. Muscle expan
sion will be more active in the one
case than In the other, and that is
another reason why mutton produc
tion would be cheaper.
There Is considerable water in any
of the pasture crops that sheep eat.
and they get still more moisture from
the dew that collects on the grass
bia.ies in early morning and late even
ing; but from these two sources/
while lt gets enough water to keep it
alive, a sheep still does not get
enough to keep lt in the very best
growing condition nor to keep all Its
bodily processes going on In the
most effective manner possible.
There is not an organ in the body
that can function properly ^without
water to aid it Being ono of the
chief constituents of blood, water ls
carried to every part of the system,
and not alone helps it In getting its
nourishment, but also In ridding lt of
impurities. It ls obvious that a large
amount of water must be necessary
to keep the sheep doing well. Enough
ls not got with the food and this
amount should be supplemented by
all the sheep will drink when given
constant access to lt.
Good Reason for His Enthusi

eral days with colic, diarrhoea or
other form of bowel complaint and
is then cured sound and well by one
or two doses of Chamberlain's colic,

Dealing With Those

TEXT-"Judge not, that ye be not
Judged." Matthew 7:L
In dealing witt
those who com
plain of the hypo
crites in the
church it is well
to open your
Bible to .Matthew
7:1, and ask them
to read lt. Also
show them Ro
mans 14:12. "So
then every one of
us shall give ac
count of himself
to God." Then ask
"Who has appoint

'"Have your fellow men selected you
for this important position?"
"Of course not."
"You don't mean to say that you
have appointed yourself judge, do
you? A self-appointed judge! Who
ever heard of such a thing!"
Then ask him to read Romans 2:1.
"Wherefore thou art without excuse,
0 man, whosoever thou art that Judg
est, for wherein thou judgest another,
thou condemnest thyself; lor thou
that judgest dost practise the same
Ask him if it ever occurred to him'
that he was a hypocrite himself, and
when he answers in the negative, say
"Well, let us see. You condemn the
hypocrites because they pretend to be
what they are not?"
"But when you claim that the rea
son why you are not a Christian ia
because of the hypocrites in the
church, you are pretending, what ia
not true. The real reason why you
do not become a Christian ia because
you want your own way, and are not
willing to obey God. And when you
say it is because of the hypocrites,
you are saying what is not trua, and
you know it."
Show him John 21:21, 22. "Peter
saith to Jesus, Lord, and what shall
this man do? Jesus saith unto him, if
1 will that he tarry till I come, what
lg that to thee? Follow thou me.'
Say to him:
"Admitting that there are hypocrites
in the church, what is that to you?
If every man in the church was a
hypocrite that would not excuse you
from the duty of repentance."
"If there was a call for volunteers
to defend this country would you stay
out of the army because some bad
men would probably enlist?"
"I suppose not"
"Possibly you are a Mason or an
Odd Fellow. Are there any black
sheep in your lodge?"
"I must confess that there are a
"And yet you joined the lodge,
knowing this fact, and you urge others
to do the same?"
"That Is true."
"Why then do you offer such a silly
excuse when the subject of religion
arises? If you do not wish to be a
Christian, say so in a manly way, but
do not try to hide yourself behind the
faults of others. The only safe hiding

Christ, and you will realize lt some
, A man once said to his pastor that
the reason why he did not accept
Christ was because he once had a
partner who was a professing Chris
rtian, who wronged him in business.
"That ls your real reason, la it?"
asked the minister.
"It is," replied the man.
"Suppose we put it down in writ
ing," said the minister, and drawing
out his notebook, he wrote: "The rea
son why I am not a Christian ia that
my partner, who claimed to be a
Christian, wronged me in a business
Tearing out the leaf, he folded lt
and handed lt to the man, saying,
"When you come before t' a Great
White Throne and God asks you why
you have rejected his Son, just hand
him that paper," and turning away, he
left him. Hardly had he reached
home, when his door-bell rang, and
there stood the man, with the paper
in his hand.'
"Well," said the minister, "what can
I do for you?"
"I have brought this paper back. I
am afraid lt would not answer as an
excuse to give to God."
"You think God would not accept
"I am afraid not"
"We may as well tear it up then,"
and suiting the action to the word,
the minister tore it into fragments
and threw them away.
"Now have you any other excuse
which is better?" /
"I do not think oiNany."
"If you haven't any good reason for
not becoming a Christian, had you

? PREVENT DISEASE IN CALVES
White Scour and Lung Affection Are
Two Great Scourges-Latter ls
Caused by Carelessness.
(By W. P.. GILBERT.)
The two great scourges in calf rear
ing are the white scour and the lung
affection, which latter has been proved
to be quite preventable.
. The method requires extreme but
not laborious care in carrying out.
When thiB care ls taken, satisfactory
results are obtained.
Investigation has proved: First,
that the disease ls located in districts;
and second, that it is more prevalent
where sanitary conditions are not per
fect; third, that the disease is
contracted through allowing the infec
tious matter of the place, when the
calf is dropped, to come Into contact
A Fine Specimen.
with the navel of the young calf,
through which it find3 its way into
the circulation of the animal.
The remedy is to have the place for
the young calf carefully cleansed, and
as soon as the calf comes into :he
world, to dress the navel with a prep
aration of carbolic acid; that will de
stroy any Infectious matter that may
attach itself to the navel.
Naturally failures have been re
ported even when precautions hare
been taken, and doubts cast on the
theory of infection.
Still, seeing that infection of dis
eases similar to this may be carried
on the point of a fine needle, how can
we say with confidence, that the dis
ease, white scour, occurs through any
other cause than Infection in places
where the Infective matter has been
known almost with certainty to exist?
There are districts where this
scourge ls unknown. Let a dlsea?ed
calf be brought in and the disease ai
All bouses m which young ca1 ves
are reared should be made thoroughly
clean; a large application of disinfec
tants should be made until the place
is purified. All calves should have
their navels dressed with carbolic
acid dressing as soon as they are
born, and they should be liberally sup
plied with clean dry straw for bed
Another disease appears to be a
form of contagious bronchitis. J; is
generally fatal if it ls allowed to run
unchecked for some time.
It is possible that this very serions
disease may be caused by allowing the
calves to remain oat la the fields too
long in cold or wet weather.
Provide good comfortable, dry quar
ters for the calves while they are
young. Let them have sufficient ven
tilation in their houses, without
drafts. Allow them open air exer
cise only on warm days, and not until
they are sufficiently ?strong to stand
even moderately cold weather. Never
allow a young calf to have its coat sat
urated with cold rain water.
The principal matter to be borne in
mind is that all young animale taken
from their natural conditions of life
and living must have thoughtful care;
and it should not be necessary tp ob
serve that In the management of
calves, we are dealing with a valuable
farm asset that will repay consider
