FIREWOOD MAKES
GOOD CASH CROP
Farmer Can Make His Farm Pay
Substantial Profits by
Producing Fuel.
USEFULNESS OF MACHINERY

poses About the Farm.
(Prepared by the United States depart
ment of Agriculture.)
The farmer's problems appear, all
of a sudden, to have become the lead
ing national problem. Congress is
talking of little else titan legislation
ulmed to help the agricultural Inter
ests. The bankers are busy explain
ing why they can't lend the farmer
the cash he needs. The plight of the
farmer ls the chief topic of diseusslon
In railroad circles and among business
men at all Ute big markets. Farmers
themselves are organizing everywhere
to force the prices of their products
np to a point where selling will not
mean a loss to them.
Meanwhile what the Individual
farmer needs ls not talk, but cash.
Certain things he must buy right
ulong for himself and his family. He
can't walt for the national debate to
run down.
In this situation farmers who are
bard pressed for cash may be over
looking the fact that all around them
"money ls growing on the trees," and
the crop ls Just walting to be i 'eked.
This is almost literally trw*, in oth
er words the farmer can harvest an
other crop-his timber. All over the
country thousands of farmers are
turning to this immediate source of

cash. In money value, firewood ranks
ns America's sixth crop. Government
statistics show rank of crops In this
order: Wheat, corn, cotton, hay,
oats, firewood.
Money In Producing Fuel.
With one of the practical, low-priced
power log saws now on the market,
the farmer can make hts farm pay
substantial profits by producing fuel
-a commodity that has held up well
In price and for which there ls an al
most unlimited demand. Then, too,
there ls always a steady market for
ties, fence posts and timbers that
can easily and quickly be cut with
these lightweight, portable machines.
In this way the farmer, with little
work or expenses, can realize good
profits and still hang on to his grain
and live stock if he wonts to, until
prices get better.
On nearly every farm in most sec
tions of the country there ls timber
In more than sufficient quantities for
home use. There are live trees that
need to be taken out to give room for
younger ones to grow, or to clear the
land for cultivation ; thero are dead
trees that are allowed to decay ; and
on thousands of farms, thc banks of
rivers nnd creeks are lined with great
logs and other drift wood.
For many years thc farmer has been
Interested In, and has readily accept
ed, machinery that would sn*e him
time, labor and money. Now be is
seizing upon a machine that actually
maka* money for him-ns well as sav
ing him time and labor. Those who
have used the 1021 Improved model
log saws say these machines come
near to being perfect sawing outfits.
They do the work of ten to fifteen
able-bodied men-cut down trees and
saw up logs nnd branches of any size
-at an average cost of about 1%
cents a cord. Cutting 85 cords of
wood ls an easy day's work, and lt is
possible to cut as much as 50 cords
In that time.
Machine Cuts Standing Trees.
One of the most popular log saws
makes over 300 strokes a minute, and
Its engine pulls over four horsepow
er. This particular machine cuts
down standing trees, too. By attach
ing this clever device, trees cnn bo
cut down with the level of the
ground, so there will he no stump, or
higher up, as desired. Ry ni Inching
a circular saw the outfit ls quickly
turned Into a buzz saw, which rapid
ly zips tip limbs and branches, those
parts of the tree which usually go to
waste, yet which produce fully one
third of the wood.

The Object of
Satan's Hatred
By REV. B. B. SUTCLIFFE
Extension Department Moody
Bible Instituto, AJhicago.
TEXT-Your adversary, tho dovll . . . '
whom resist steadfast In tho faith.
Pot. 6:8, 9. i
Is there a personal dovll? Many are
answering this question lr the negn
11 v e, forgetting
that In doing so
they deny all the
teachings of his- j
tory as well as,
the experience of
millions of men ;
ami women of
ever'- age. They
are also very near
to blasphemy, for
of necessity they
must Impute to
God susceptibility
to evil within
Himself, as tito
first chapter of
the book of Job
so clearly shows.
It is not my purpose, however, lu this
sermon to discuss the personality of
Satan, but to speak of the object of
his deepest hatred, whether we think
of him as a person or merely as an
Influence. It ls the Bible more than
anything else on the earth which ls the
object of Satan'B most Intense hatred.
First, because in the Bible alone
there ls the full revelation of God. If
Satan can discredit the Book he can
do away with our knowledge of tho
true God.
Outside of the Bible there are three
particular spheres wherein man has
constantly sought to know God. These
three spheres ure nature, science and
philosophy. Concerning nature lt ls
true as we read In Bom. 1:20, "The
Invisible things of Him from the crea
tion of the world are clearly seen,
being understood by the things that
are made; even his eternal power and
Godhead." But God's nature, which
is love, und Ills character, which ls
gracious, ls not to be found In na
ture. Indeed the very opposite ls
found there. When we come to exam
ine nature, Instead of being drawn to
Its God, we are rather repelled 'by
what we lind lu the way of cruelty.
Think of the birds of the air feeding
upon other living creatures; tho
beasts of the field preying upon one
another; and even man, the crowning
work of nature, must admit as being
true the accusation of the poet, "Man's
inhumanity to mau makes countless
thousands mourn."
Again, there i>re some who tum to
science for their understanding of tho ,
true God because of the orderliness
and exactitude found hy various scien
tific investigations. They feel they
come to know God without coming to
the Book. The difficulty ls that In
sciences there ls continual change.
What ls true today may tomorrow bo
found erroneous. The result ls neces
sarily a changing God, and the heart
of man cries out for a God who ls
the same yesterday, today and for
ever ; one who through all the chang
ing vicissitudes of human life, will be
found unchangeable ; always showing
forth unquenchable love and infinite
wisdom. The textbooks of science
nre continually changing, constantly
being revised as research makes
change necessary because of new dis
coveries. T>.ut the Bible, iike Its Au
'thor, remuais unchanged through all
the ages.
Again philosophy claims to find a sat?
isfactory God for its devotees, but the
best philosophy can do for us is to
present "on unknown God," and we
are forced to become like the reason
ers in Athens long ago and, after do
ing all we know, erect an altar to "tho
unknown God." But the unknown
God of philosophy ls the Ono who has
been pleased to reveal Himself upon
the pages of the Bible.
It has therefore been the continuous
purpose and constant effort of Satan
to deny or distort the Word of God
because he ls aware that In no other
pince cnn full knowledge of the true
God be found. Ho began this effort
away back In the Garden of Eden
where he first uttered through the
mouth of the serpent his age old ques
tion, "Yen, hath God said?" (Gen. 3:1).
He would have mun doubt the fact of
having a revelation from God, doubt
ns to whether God bad spoken nt all,
whether mnn had Indeed and in truth
a word directly from God. Satan has
never ceased to ask this same ques
tion, and tho writings of destructive
critics who question the fact of a di
rect revelation from God, are ns much
inspired of him ns the serpent was
when first this question was used for
the purpose of stealing'away man's
knowledge of Goth
Without the Bible we soon come to
the place of those of whom lt ls writ
ten in Judges 21:25, "Every man did
that which was right in his own eyes."
This Is lawlessness or anarchy ; which
ls another word for Satan's rule. The
growth of lawlessness today ls pro
portionate to the measure In which the
people turn from the Bible as the true
standard of conduct ; where tho Rlblo
lo held In reverence there we lind up
right and law-abiding citizens. Satan
kates the latter condition and there
fore directs his assaults upon that
which produces lt-the Bible. To pro
duce good citizens of this world and
blessed Inhabitants of tho next, tho
Bible ls to be read, studied and
obeyed, ?n spite of all tho raging of
our adversary, the devil, whom we ara
te resist steadfastly In the faith
