TEXT.-And he oald unto Jesus, Lord,
remember me when thou comest Into thy
kingdom. And Jesus said unto him, Ver
ily 1 say unto thee, Today shalt thou b?
with me In paradise.-Luke 23:42, 43.
There is a fountain filled with blood
Drawn from Immanuel's velnB,
And sinners plunged beneath that flood
Loso all their guilty stains.
The dying thief rejoiced to see
That fountain In his day
Centuries before ihe cross lt had
been written of the Loni Jesus, "He
with the trans
gressors". We can
shame of crucifix?
ion wit I? criminals,
but the deeper
shame of Ills tak
ing the pince of
criminals is be
yond all mortui
ken. Hut, "for
the Joy that was
set lief ore him" 1 le
"endured the cross, 1 and here we are
permitted to see Him tasting a little
of (hat joy before the cross is accom
plished, lie ?s (o have seine spoils
of lils donih before that death occurs.
How di liment the characters that
appear in Scripture as the subjects of
Cod's grace. They runge from the
very bes| of nien. libe Nicodemus and
Hie Italian Centurion, down te the
lowest of th,, vile, like the one before
us now. It would be difficult lo lind
a mun in dooper depths of depravity
than this thief, Not only condemned
to die un Ignominious death on account
Of his crimes but while standing in thc
very doorway of death, he reviled
the Son of dod. Bul, low as lui is,
he is not beyond the reach of the grace
and love displayed In (bat central
cross. Hp ix jH8t tj,e onc j,) whom
they can manifest their'triumph.
A ray of divine light entered that
darkened soul and disclosed In's own
lost estate and the glory of that Person
hanging by his side. The light of that
Presence has searched him through. A
sinner In the presence of the Savior!
The usual result! He confesses his
sin, owns the Justness of his condemna
tion and the spotless humanity of the
Lord Jesus, bears this testimony In
the face of the hostile world, which,
led by Its prince, ls gathered there to
reproach God's Son.
And tims, a Bel f-con fessed sinner,
lie tums to Jesus with a prayer that
ls at once a cordial for that fainting
heart: "Lord remember me when thou
comest into thy kingdom."
Ile lins seen lt all ! Has seen that this
is the long-promised Messiah, and that
though now He ls dying yet Ile must
eenie back into Ills kingdom, accord
ing lo all the prophets.
And this dying Messiah ls a Savior,
for he could not be ignorant of the
meaning of that name: "('all his name
Jesus for he shall SAVIO." A sinner
with nothing but sin as his claim, has
casi himself upon the Savior. With
what result? ,
When did any sinner, malefactor
or moralist, turn to Jesus and not re
ceive far more than his faith dared
expect ? *
Fur beyond the request of the poor
dying mah docs the Loni Jesus go, ns
always in His delight to save, and, In
effect, He said: I'll do fur better for
you than that. You have not to walt
until I come back again. "Verily I
say unto thee, Today shalt thou bo
with me tn paradise." The believing
sinner has passed from death unto lifo
and the Savior's soul ls glad !
No questions are asked, no words
of reproach are uttered, no referenco
made to the recent blasphemy, no con
ditions are Imposed. Without works,
except bad ones, without external rites
of any kind, the dying thief is snatched
from the jaws of death by the Savior's
eager hands. This ls Ills glory! Ho
Is seeking to save, and waits only for
the look or the cry of faith from tho
sinner that has learned his need of
What i miracle of grace ! A man
wholly unlit to live on earth ls In tho
twinkling of eye, without question or
condition, mude flt to associate with
the Son of fled in paradise. And Ho
ls the name wonderworking Savior to
day, unchanged and unchanging. Nono
of His power to save is lacking. Still
He seeks and still glories to save. O
soul, give Him n chance with you.
Men like to say of this story of a
sinner saved at the gates of death;
"There was one such case that nono
might despair, but only one that nono
might presume." Let us rather say
that lt ls Just a pattern case of sal
vation, outlined in the clearest possiblo
woy in connection with Jesus' cross,
so that wherever the story of the cross
should be told, this story of what
happened there must be told too. It
ls Cod's own story. Cod help men to
Union of Prayer.
From tho day of Pentecost, thero
has been not one great spiritual
awakening, In any land, which hus not
begun In a union of prayer, If only two
or three. No such outward, upward
movement has continued nfter such
prayer meetings have declined; und lt
lg tn exact proportion to the mainte
nance of such point and believing sup

word of die Lord in any locality bas
had free course and been glorified.

this afternoon on charges of em
bezzlement, conspiracy and confi
dence game, through the alleged use
of interest on State funds for their
Four Indictments wero returned.
They covered charges of fraud by
the trio during the terms of Small
and Sterling in the State Treasurer's
ollice between 1017 and 1921.
The first indictment charges the
governor, Lieutenant Governor and
Curtis jointly with embezzlement of
$700,(100. A separate indictment
against Governor Small charged him
With embezzlement of $500,000.
while Lieutenant Governor Sterling
was individually charged with em
bezzlement of $700,000. The fourth
indictment charges the three with
conspiracy and confidence game in
volving $2,11(10.(1(11) in interests on
Sta lo funds.

Accumulation Beneath Perches
of Fowls Receives Only Oc
IS FREQUENTLY THROWN AWAY
la Worth 30 to 40 Cents Per Fowl Por
Year If Properly Cared For
Especially Rich In Nitrogen
(Prepared by the United state? Depart
ment of Agriculture.)
The average poultry raiser attaches
little or no value to the manure pro
duced hy his flock. Its gradual accu
mulation beneath the perches of his
fowls receives only occasional atten
tion, in many Instances, and even
when cleaned out more frequently ls
thrown away. When Its removal be
comes necessary he considers lt one of
the unavoidable and unpleasant evils
that go with the business.
Rich in Nitrogen and Phosphorus.
But poultry manure has a very real
value, ami may become a profitable
by-product of the plant, lt luis been
determined by the Maine experiment
station, working in co-operation with
the United States Department of Agri
culture, that the average nigh! drop
pings ot" Hie medium breeds amount lo
?50 pounds a year for one fowl. On
this basis UH) fowls would produce
?1,000 pounds, or I Vi tons. Tho
analyses of Ibis manure show lt to be
especially high In (wo of the three
principal fertilizing elements. If the
plant food contained in a ton of aver
age fresh poultry manure were bought
at the price paid, usually, for lt in the
form of commercial fertilizers, the
outlay would bc about $10.
Taking into account the fact that
the quantity of manure produced In
A Roosting Platform Helps to Con
serve the Night Droppings.
the daytime is at least equal to that
produced ut night the specialists find
that one average hen produces about
CO pounds of manure in a year. How
ever, only the night droppings are
available for use, as the day droppings
are widely scattored over the yards
and ranges. The night droppings from
1,000 hens would be worth about $150
a year. As hen manure, as it usually
is cared for, contains only about one
half its original value, the loss through
this form of neglect must be vers
large for the entire country.
Tho town or city backyard-poultry
man has two real Incentives to Induce
the saving of his hen manure. In th?
first place his poultry house should bc
kept cleun If his fowls are to bc
healthy, and, In the second place, thc
manure may be used Immediately dur
lng a large part of the year In the
orchard, or around berry bushes. How
ever, If this Immediate use is resorted
to the manure should be applied some
what sparingly. It ls from two tc
three times richer in phosphoric acid
than the ordinary farm mnnuros. This
of course, ls due to the kinds of feedi
used, and also to the fact that liquid
and solid matter are together.
It can be handled most satlsfactorilj
if mixed with loam to remove stick
lness in tho summer. In the winter ll
should be mixed with a fair propor
Hon of loam, sawdust, or coal ashes
sifted dried earth, land plaster, ot
gypsum. Wood ashes and lime should
never be used as they set free thc
nitrogen, which must be avoided.
Keep In a Dry Place.
To put manure on the ground In thc
winter would mean to los? one-half ol
more of Its value. Tho bettor plan Is tc
store lt In barrels or boxes until time
to use on a growing crop. When stored
this way the container should have
several large holes bored in it to adnill
air. Some plants having several thou
sand fowds have large bins of concrete
for saving this manure. Untreated, fi
large part of the nitrogen escapes inte
thc air as ammonia gas.
The Maine experiment station
recommends using with every 8(
pounds of poultry manure 10 poundl
of sawdust, 10 pounds of acid phos
phate, and 8 pounds of kainlt. Thc
acid phosphate and the kainlt prevent
the loss of nitrogen, and thc sawdust
absorbs the excess moisture. If saw
dust is not obtainable, dried earth ic
about the same proportion may bc
substituted. After being treated lr
tills way tbe manure should he put
In a sheltered place until used. If thc
materias are kept handy the buslnesi
of mixing soon becomes a routln?
