PROPER CARE OF THE LAWN
Grass Plat Must Never Be Neglected
If Home ls to Have a Proper
One of the most important duties
on the home place during the summer
is the care of the lawn. There ls
nothing about a place that makes so
much for general attractiveness as a
well cared for lawn.
Many people make the mistake of
"keeping the lawn cut too close. In
that case the grass roots are exposed
to hot sun and drying winds during
the summer. Cut the lawn frequently,
but do not set the machine too close.
To keep the lawn looking clean at all
times have a grass-catcher attachment
on the mower. A careful watch for
weeds on the lawn should be kept
Cut them out well below the surface
with an old knife as soon as they are
large enough to be seen.
A roller on the lawn ls advisable,
but it should be used with care.
Lawns that have been rolled tor a long
time are likely to become over-rolled;
there ls surface cohesion or close
packing of the top soil, which prevents
the admission of air and healthy root
development. The remedy is the use
of the spiked tamper. A home-made
one may be made by taking a piece of.
two-inch plank, some 12xl2-inch tim
ber and inserting four-inch spikes an
inch and a half or two inches apart
Bore holes a little smaller than the
spikes before driving them in, to pre
vent splitting the wood. Perforate
the whole surface thoroughly with
this, give a top dressing, lightly rake
lt in and water the whole thoroughly j
late in the afternoon.
HAVE TOP SASH SCREENED i
May Be Considered Small Matter, But !
ls Always Advisable-Advice for
Don't forget that you may at some, !
time want to open the top sash of the
window, and that flies and mosquitoes I
are not particular as to through which
bash they enter; therefore have the
screen run from top to bottom of the
window; to do this, side springs will
be necessary in the screen frames, but
they will cost little more than a screen
which can be used only from the bot
tom sash and which ls little better
than no screen at all.
Don't forget that there will never be

Don't say you can't build now be
cause you have not enough money; if
you have a little, the co-operativo
banks and building associations will
loan you the balance needed upon
terms under which you can pay for tho

would be no more than you would or*

The City Beautiful.
A one-time mayor of New. York,
George B. McClellan, said: "In a l
leif-governing community, the -ul- !
timate object of the government is the j
isppiness of the governed. Something j
oaore is needed to make the happy j
Hty than health and,stealth and wis- j
dom. The -city healthy, tte city j
wealthy, and the city wise, may excite
Satisfaction, complaisance and pride!
?it it is the city beautiful that com
pels and retains the love of people."
When, last the tree men of the South,
met at Riverside, in the music room
Of the famous Glenwood Mission inn,
an illuminated sign stretched across
the stage, which read: "Make your
city beautiful and you will learn to
Standards for Electric Service.
A representative of the United
States bureau of standards has been i
ta conference with the public-service
commissions and managers of public- ,
service corporations in various parts I
of the country. The Information BO
obtained has been used in preparing !
the bureau's forthcoming circular on
.".Standards for Electric Service." An- ;
ether representative of the bureau
spent the entire month in the South,
making measurements of street il-1
iumination and electric current in the j
ftreet-lightlng systems of a number I
of cities and towns, The results of !
the investigation will form the basis j
ti a circular on street lighting.
Ute Only Fire-Resisting Material.
There has been established in Cleve
land, O., a society whose object ls to
disseminate "information on the safe,
sane and sanitary building of mod
erate-priced houses. This society rec
ommends only such building materials j
as will resist the action of the ele-1
m en ts, thus reducing to a minimum
the fire hazard.
Shads Tree? Improve Property.
It h?s Been estimated "that within
the cities of New York state there are
20,000 miles of streets capable of sus
taining z. growth of 5,000,000 shade
trees, which can be made worth $100,?
000,000 in increased property value.
"GOB, THE FATHER
Words of Scripture Convey Mes
sage of Truth to All Who
Will Read and Heed.
Science shows us that all souls are
alike. It has studied millions of souls
in every part of the earth and it finds
them exactly the same in their facul
ties of knowledge, feeling and wilJing.
Men may differ in color, in language,
in size, in ability, but they don't dif
fer as men. If one of them came
from a certain original source, all of
them must have come from the same
original source, which proves that the
Father of souls is the Father of all
souls, and therefore the All-Father or
the Universal Father.
Science also shows that all souls
are going" through the same discipline.
No matter where we travel, we will
find sin and sorrow, light and dark
ness, pain and hardship, and all the
other things that try men's souls and
turn them out rugged and divine in
character. This.being so, does it not
prove that God takes an interest, and
the same kind of an interest, in all
men? H? is doing for all exactly what
he is doing for each, and he is doing
for each exactly what he is doiiig for
all. This is another proof of his uni
versal Fatherhood and a display of
his partiality and favoritism. Sci
ence will allow no religious sect; to
monopolize God, any more than it
will allow one part of the world to
monopolize gravitation. Gravitation
ls a universal law-everywhere found
and everywhere alike. God is a uni
versal Father, everywhere present and
Father of All Mankind.
When we take the great-vislc ned
characters of the Bible-Jesus and
Paul-we find them united in be iev
ing God to be the Father of all man
kind. Hear Jesus: "When ye j ray
say, Our Father." The "our" is an
inclusive and not an exclusive Vro
noun. Jesus authorized and made lt
possible for every human being in this
world to lift up his voice and nay:
"Our Father, who art in heaven." Hear
St Paul. He ls speaking to the Greeks
at Athens. They are not yet concert
led to Christianity, so that it cannot
be replied that he is speaking to
Christian Greeks. He says: 'God
that made the world and all things
therein. . . . hath made of one
blood all nations of men, for to dwell
on all the face of the earth. . . .
In him we live and move and bave
our being; as certain of your own po
ets have said, For we ara also his
offspring." There you have the doc
trine of the universal Parenthood of
God from Christ's chief aposcle and
the greatest Christian preacher and
missionary the world has ever known.
It it hard for some people to come
to this. They are as strangely deter
mined not to believe lt as was Sinon
Peter. But he had to come to lt
and so will they. God sent Pete* a
dream, a kind of heavenly parable, in
which he told him to eat certain
things that Peter, as a Jew, had al
ways thought he had no religious
right to eat. He thought that -.hey
were unclean and were condemned by
God himself. But God told hint to
e?t them. In other words, he Com
manded him to broaden out and to
see that what God had cleansed could
not be unclean, and also to see that
no one whom God had created could
be alien to God and should not be
allen to him. Peter opened his ?yes
and'said: "Of a truth I perceive that
.God is no respecter of persons, but
(n every nation he that feareth nina
and worketh righteousness is accept
able to him." (Acts 10:34.) You und
I and everyone in Christendom and
In the rest of the world should wake
up and see and know and believe in
the universal Fatherhood of God. I'or
this is? the latest and highest discov
3ry the soul has made concerning God,
the grandest discovery it can possibly
make. He is not only a Father,.but
a world-wide* Father,
r True Christianity.
Christianity, as Christ taught it is
the only religion in the world that
proclaims the universal Fatherhood of
God, and is therefore the only re
ligion that can bring about the univer?
sal brotherhood of man. If you do
not believe this doctrine, you have
stopped short in your search for a
Father, and have got a Father who ie
altogether too small and too provln
cia! in influence to save the multitu
dinoas Inhabitants of this globe. He
must be an All-Father, to save all.
And this is the purpose and program
dear to his heart, if I read the Bible
aright and science aright The Bible
says "that in the name of Jesus Christ
every knee should bow, of things, in
heaven, and things on earth, and
things under the earth, and that every
tongue should confess that Jesus
Christ ts Lord, to the glory of bou.
the Father." (PML 2:10, 22.)
One God, one law. one element
And one far-off Divine event.
To which the whole creation moves.
Entering Into Reward.
We have been placed upon the way
We have been t?tigst the truth. We
have been made partakers of the life.
The way must be traversed; the troth
must be pursued; the life must be
realized. Then cometh the end. Our
pilgrimage, long as it may be or short.
If we have walked in Christ will leave
us by the throne of God; our partial
knowledge, if we have looked upon
all things in Christ, will be lost in
open sight; our little lives, perfected
purified, harmonized in him wfeom we
have treated, will become, in due or
der, parts of the one divine life, when
God is all in all.-Westcott
TO HEAL THE SOUI
Impossible to Misunderstand th
Purpose for Which Jesus
Came to Earth.
After all, our Lord's1 supreme pul
pose was to be a healer of souls. Hat
the Pharisees understood that he wa
a healer, they would not have bee
surprised to find him among publican
and sinners. But they Judged Jesu
by themselves. They expected hit
to have the same prejudices, the sam
narrowness and the same contemp
for the socially and morally d?grad?e
Men are apt to make' their own fee!
lngs the standard of moral judgment
We common people have eternal re!
sons for thankfulness that Jesus Chris
did not come as a priest, or a philost
pher, with the proud, narrow contemp
often characteristic of those who bea
these titles; but that he came as
healer of souls, with broad, warm syn
pathies and with an abiding faith 1:
all classes of men. This exposed hil
to the censure of his contemporariet
but has earned for him the gratitud'
and love of all later ages.
That Christ came into the world a
a healer ol! souls has many lesson
for us. It means, in the first place
that Christianity is before all things ?
religion of redemption. Its prone
vocation is to lift the low, to raise tb
fallen, to teach the ignorant the wa;
of life, to set free those bound by st
perstition, to cleanse the moral lepe
and to heal those who are spirituall;
There is in the natural heart of maj
a terrible selfishness and cruelt;
which causes men to thrust the weal
to the wall, and often to trampl
savagely on the fallen. Hounds bit?
their sick brother in the kennel, am
the wolves tear the wounded one o
the pack. ' Among savage ^ tribes th?
aged, the sick and the injured wer*
often killed or left to die. In polishe<
Greece and imperial Rome chlldrei
were exposed and slaves were merci
lesBly tortured. Christ taught th<
world that lihis cruelty and hardnesi
of heart were earthly and devilish. H<
taught us once and for all the sr.cred
ness, not only of fine gifts and brillian
intellects, but the sacredness of mai
as mah. He saw the soul of beaut]
in things ugly, and the possible good
ness in things evil.
Few That Are Whole. '
"They that are whole need not i
physician," tiaid Jesus. Are there an]
whole? We find many people who
like the Pharisees, consider themteivei
whole and certainly not in need of f
. physician. Perhaps you and I cranl
ourselves among the number/^ftc
need no help, who are perfectly1 s<ife
fled with our own morality. But th?
day will come when we stand revealed
to our own sight in all our unworthi
ness, and we realize that the cancel
of sin has been eating at our verj
heart Some day we will understand
what Christ told the Pharisees, thal
God will have mercy and not sacri
Since Ghrist's supreme purpose In
coming was to heal souls, then lt fol
lows that his place was among the
publicans and sinners. They sneered
at him that day because he sat down
at table in Matthew's house with those
who were socially ostracized and mor
ally tainted. But if the Gospel of .Je
sus Christ is a saving gospel, then lt
must go where it finds those who need
It the most. When the church forgets
that, lt ceases to be the true church
of the Good Physician?--There ls some
truth in the reproach which has been
directed at the church at different
times, that it has catered to the well
and the well to do. But I believe that
that time has to a great extent passed,
and that of late years the church has
been entering into a fuller appr?cia*
tion of the spirit of th?? Master who
ministered unto the world's leprosy,
who healed the lame, the halt and the
blind spiritually as well as physically,
and who preached the Gospel unto the
Love Always. First
In this story of the Good Physician
'here is a great comfort for us all.
Christ's way with sinners was to
love them and to believe in their re
coverability. -He went among the out?
casts and healed them, and it should
be to us an object lesson in the possi
bility of a restored humanity. When
we preach the Gospel to men, we there
by announce our faith in the Divine
something in them which will respond
to the Divine message which we bring
?hem. That is why Christianity is al?
ways optimistic, and that is why the
church should always be optmistic,
having an abiding faith in the prog'
ress and power of the Gospel. Jesus
said, "Lo, I am with you alway," and
is his love any less than when he
walked the earth, and ls his power .any
less than when be healed the tinner*
"Cleanse thou, me from secret
faults," waa the cry of David of old.
He knew the heart of man, ind he
knew his own heart This prayer finds
an echo in every life. We are an con
scious of sins which are hidden from
the world, and some of which are al
most hidden from ourselves. We are
conscious of the wild beast within,
which some day, we fear, win break
forth. Our great shas have their secret
antecedents. The dari: tragedies of
life are not Isolated happenings. They
are the outcomes of tbs deadly dis
eases of sin which has- been secretly
gnawing at our characters; Wen may

with him for help, aad let us remem

All the male citizens between the
ages of 21 years and 60 years except
those exempt by law are liable to a
poll tax of One Dollar each. A capita
tion tax of 50 cents each is to be paid
on all dogs.
The law prescribes that all male citi
zens between the ages of 18 and 55
years must pay $2 commutation tax or
wurk six days on the public roads. As
this is optional with the individual, no
commutation tax is included in the
property tax.- So ask for road tax re
ceipt when you desire to pay road tax.
