This ls (llffc.renti Quite likely lt ls hot

ject something pleasant. .
And so lt Is; tho Une must bo
drnwh bet Ween the pleasant, but
harmful; and the less pleasant, but
holy. Thc Christian ls saved by Ono
and he follows One whoso ways lit
exactly Into this portion of Scripture,
^ foi* ho forfeited the swed morsels and
the elaborate banquets, nnd accepted
the hunger and thirst by the way,
leading lo the cross.
There aro other dainties upon which
one may feed besides those which are
pleasant to the appetite. Dainties of
landscape, dainties of apparel, dainties
of literature, (lainlies bf abode. Not
ff many people possess' all of these nt
once and few people possess many of
them. Hut Christian people bave mot
the crisis In which they have settled
that lhere ure tilings they are willing
to do without. Not only that they
have duly considered things they
would prefer to dd without because
Jp over against them is something of
greater worth than they nil. Happy

The children of Israel "went after
thc initions that were round about
them, concerning whom the Lord had
charged (hom Hint they should not
do like thom." (ll Kings 17:15.) The
4 Prophet Amos pictures them as a
people who "abound In superfluities."
Thus, they claimed these cheap nnd
perishing things while they turned
from the sure covenant and the Unfall-,
lng providence of God. Through the
eye they saw und through tho ear
they heard and through the lusts of
the flesh they went nf 1er the delusive
Bights and songs und deeds exempli
fied by (ho idol worshipers In their
neighborhood. We must guard against
the same sinful tendency today. Since
our Lord Jesus Christ paid the entire
debi and wo receive His gnn-e with
out money ?mil without price, we must
consider that Ile docs not save us that
we may lightly regard lils will.
Make of lt what wo may, the Chris
tian ls a pilgrim and a stranger on
tho earth, ii pilgrim journeying homo
and a stranger on a sphere where lils
Loni was cruclflodi There is a vast
difference between our living in th?
neighborhood nnd our allowing the
neighborhood, to live Its Ood-defjing
program in our souls.
What are (hose dainties when care
fully examined? _ Men risk all for
them, but Hie ardent quest is a de
lusion. Do (hoy imply indulgence of
nppetlto? Whnl If with lt ls the sure
loss of physical health? Is l. that
one hungers for fame? What If with
the ambition for distinction comes ili
se the betrayal of the most enthusi
astic flatterer o? nil those who urged
us on? Did you pay all for beauty?
And did you with ^t become possessor
of the virus of Incurable diseuse? Hut
these are only illustrations of tho
fnet that the ninny dainties of tho
wicked have fellowships from which
they never permanently part com
pany. Happy tho <luy when a man
draws the dividing line between good
and bad with flaming fire so that to
go down to tho bad menus to h'm Hint
he would have to pass through tho
O, lt ls groat to step over tho lino
that divides between things and Jesus.
Just to see Illili with tho eyes of the
heart until tho glory of Ills fnce
shines upon the tilings men consider
dainties nnd reven?s how easily thoy
decay or how quickly they leave ?ii: or
how groat aro tho losses they bring
with them. But do not begin by trying
to cross that Uno. Regln by receiving
Jesus Christ. This moment it may be
forbidden dainties, but the next P. ls,

?< TUM SILO IMPORTANT IN ??.

Clemson College, .lune 30.-Dairy
farmers are realizing more ami more
tho placo of the silo in the success
ful feeding of dairy cows. Business
farmers and experiment stations have
found that a silo not only increases .
l h o yearly profits of tho farm, bul
eliminates many uncertainties of live
Many products which il* fed div
have little feed value are converted
into splendid feed by a silo. Sixty
per coat of the feeding value tn* a
good corn crop is in the ears and 40
per cent, in the stalks and leaves.
When tho crop is a partial failure a
much greater percentage of the total
nutrients is in the roughage, and in
tlie event ol' protracted drought, the
roughage often contains practically
all tho food elements. Putting the
corn in the crib, therefore, does not
mean that pie crop is all harvested.
Can the fanner afford to waste 40
cents out of every dollar when by
putting Iiis corn crop in the silo he
can get its full value-100 per cent?
Silage bas no equal as a succulent
and economical feed for dairy cat
tie. lt. keeps up thc flow of mille
when pastures are short, and during
the winter months it keeps up milk
production at less cost than dry for
Tho Ohio experiment station lias
shown that a silage ration produces
butter fat for ll. per cent less cost
than does a grain ration. A silo is
a very economical storage place, as
ten tons of silage can bo stored In
tho samo space as ono ton of hay.
Tho filling of tho silo can bo done
in wet ns well as In dry weather,
while other crops would be entirely
lost If harvested under those condi
tions. If enough silage is produced
all tho year round, the pasturo acre
ago can be reduced, and thus a largor
acreage can ho used for cultivation.
Another groat advantage of the
use of tho silo is that tho land upon
which silage is grown is cleared early
In tho season and ready for fall and
winter crop3, el thor rye or oats for
winter pasture or oats and vetch for
Tho use of silage during tho sum

io pasture. Tho great disadvantage
in their uso is that much labor is re
quired, for they must ho cut and
hauled every day. This is expensive
because only small areas are cut at j
one time. It is inconvenient also
because tho field work is pressing at
that season of tho year, and both tho
Alan and horse-power are needed
badly in tho fields. Silage, - on thc
other hand, is cut at ono oporalion
when tho field work is not pressing.
Besides, weather conditions may in
terfere greatly with a soiling sys
tem, wherons, with thc silo, a good
supply of succulent food for tho cows
lg available regardless of the weather
conditions. When lt is not necessary
to use the silo during tho summer it
can he scaled up and tho silage pre
served for winter use, thus prevent
I ing any waste in feed,
j lt will not pay to build .! silo for
I loss than ten head of dairy cattle, but
Ibo larmer with nt least Ibo minl
n um number should nt once plan to
build a silo. Tho dairy farmer who
in tho fall has a silo or two full of
good corn or sorghum silage need
not worry about what, his cows are
going to eat.
Talking recently of tho practicabil
ity of a silo a farmer of Dillon cuinty '
said he thought lt was too e\i> nsivo j
to hay tho material necessary for,
(?.'ling a silo. But why should ovory |
I farmer need to own this equipment? i
Let bim co-operato with his nolgh-j

many as a dozen dairymen can own

"Opportunity School" to bo Conduct?
cd nt Landor College A
Tho Stato Department of Educa
tion, with the co-operation ot tho*
Board of Education of tho Upper
South Carolina Conference, will con
duct a uniquo school at Landor Col
logo, hoglnnlng July 2 4th and clos
ing Aug. 19. This school ls for" girls
over fourteen and womon who in
youth did not master tho "three

on teaching reading, writing, arith
metic and spelling, yot tho student
will have all the cultural contact con
nected with a Christian college. And
aside from drill work of the class
room there will be goodN looturos,
musicals and educational pictures.
Tho datos selected for holding tho
school were chosen because August
is ofton a vacation month in both
country and mill, and so will permit
tho women to utilizo their vacations
in ? most, valuable way.
Tho school ls non-sectarian and
noiv-donominallonul. Tho teachers .
ave among tho best in tito nato and
wore appointed because of their pe
culiar fitness. Tn addition to tho reg
ular teachers there will bo callod to
their assistance ibo best trainod ex

and demonstration lessons on tho
preparation of foods, homo nursing,
personal hygiene, otc.
Any girl or woman who hasn't
completed tho fifth grado and who
cannot attend a public school will bo
admitted. Expenses for the month
have been reduced to a minimum
board $12.50, laundry fifty cents per
week, hooks $1.50* lo $2.50, and rail
Tho classes will be small and the
pupils will bo classified according lo
ability rather than grado, thus per
mitting very rapid progress to bo
mudo. In ono month it will bo possi
ble for an adult to moko ns much
progress as a child in an entire year.
Tho educated public is asked to
assist in making this school a success
by calling it to the attr ition of girls
and women In need ol such Instruc
tion. Whore an ambitious girl is un
