How Diphtheria is Contracted.
One often hears the expressoin,
"My child caught a severe cold which
developed into diphtheria," when the
truth was that the cold had simply
left the little one particularly suscep
tible to the wandering diphthera
germ. If your child has a cold when
diphtheria is prevalent " you should
take him out of school and keep him
off the street until fully recovered,
as there is a hundred times more dan
ger of his taking d?5>hther?a when he
has a cold. When Chamberlain's
Cough Remedy j is given it <quickly
cures, the cdfei and lessens the dan
ger ot diphtheria or any other germ
disease bein:? contracted.
Save PV?oisture for Crops.
??loisture for plant growth is in- ?
dispensable regardless of thc fertili- j
ty of the soi!. Water is therefore a
necessity for plant growth. The plants
contain a large per cent of water. We
are told that corn plants at a certain |
stage of development when the plants j
arc nearly grown contain about nine-1
tenths water. The turnip contains j
from 82 to 02 per cent water.
The transpiration of moisture j
through the cells of niants amounts t
to much. Laws and Gilbert found in
the moist climate that wheat, barley,
beans and peas exhaled during live
months about 200 times their weight
of dry matter, lt was determined by
King of Wisconsin station by meas
uring the water given oil" by leaf
evaporation as well as the soil sup-,
ported by plants, that for each pound
of dry matter produced in root, stem,
leaf and seed, it required for corn,
olO pounds of water; barley,401 and
oats, ?Ol pounds.
If ii requires such a volume of
water io produce crops how impor
tant to conserve and utilize it! This
may be done in several ways, the
most important of which Ls timely
und ample cultivation.
lt i? well known that the larger the
per cont of humus within rea
sonable limits the greater the ca
pacity of the soil for retaining the
moisture; conversely, the less humus
the sooner crops suifer for moisture.
When soil becomes warm and the
humus supply reduced under poor
methods of management the impor
tance of cultivation at the right time
and in the proper manner is impera
tive. The fact that this is not gener
ally done accounts in a large degree
for the serious damage to crops du
ring a short drought.-Farm and

IO DO SOMETHING
THAT IS SENSATIONAL
R. T. BURGE, MISSIONARY, SAYS
CHURCH MUST KEEP PACE
WITH WORLD, WHICH IS DOIN-S
THINGS DIFFERENTLY NOW, OR
FALL HOPELESSLY BEHIND.
Appeals to Church to Make Suprema
Effort and Sacrifice at This Time
to Christianize World and
Plans of the Methodist Episcopal
Church, South, indicate that their field
of work will greatly broaden, in the
next few months and wil\ include
Europe and Russia. -"The - .il^nodist
Church has been plodding along for ?
many years and has made a record !
that every .Methodist is justly proud !
of," said R. T. Burge, of the Siberian
Commission of the American Red
?ross, in a letter from Vladivostock
that has just been received at head- j
quarters in Nashville.
"It is time, however, for the Mein.-;
odist Church to do something sensa-1
tional and unusual. All the world is
doing things differently now and thet
organization that cannot keep puce
must fall behind. We should go into
the conni ries of Europe and Russia,
he pioneers in a work that might mean
more to prevent future wars than the ;
League of Nations. Christianize and !
educate the peoples of the world and
there will be no more wars. But if
we have harmony 'by threats and fear,
and by constant show of force, I see
no reason why it might not be another ,
question of 'a scrap of paper.'
"But it would be madness to at- ;
tempt any work in Siberia or Russia
at this time. No complete or intelli
gent investigations can be made until \
order is restored, and from what I j
have seen it will be months before i
'hat task is accomplished. The cam-1
