TBJCT-Womon received their dead
miso a to life again.-Heb. 11:35.
Why Bhculd lt rond "women" ta
stend of "men"? Does death mean
moro to women
then to menT
Would women np
proclnte the rais
ing of the dead to
life more than
men? And why
say "their dead"?
A young school
t e n c h o r hud
thought thnt the
Blblo gave wom
an n kind of sec
But no ; for while
the Bible tenches
that wives should
be In subjection to their husbands, lt
nlso tenches thnt Christians should
encli be subject to one another. In
some realms tho Blblo rates man as
superior to woman. When the ques
tion arises ns to who should say the
deciding word on a debated subjeetr in
tho church lt does not leave us'nt sen.
Blither man or woman must be glveu
the obligation, and tho Bible gives lt
to the man. In the Christinn program
woman must not teach or usurp au
thority over tho man. There ls over
here tho obligation placed upon the
man lo be the bearer of the brunt of
the battle and to protect the woman.
But now, bas woman n supremacy
in some other realms? Hus she.
through the exercise of a meek and
quiet spirit, a power far mightier thnn
If she were to usurp authority over
the mun? Surely. Thus it Is that
woman ls on ninny pages of the Bible
mentioned with emphasis.
Consider the narrative In the First
Book of Kings concerning the dead
child whom Elijah restored to Ufo ns
God enabled bim. Mention ls made
there that the child's mother was n
"widow. And our Lord Jesus, when
mentioning this incident, speaks of
"mnny'widows." But be never speaks
of many widowers.
The account in the Second Book of
Kings' about thc Shunnnmlte's son is
written with the same notable em
phasis upon the woman, for lt rends
that be, having fallen sick in tho field,
his father had him curried to his
mother. This child died. Briaba
raised bim to life; and forthwith he
calls fco the child's mother, of whom lt
ls stated that she "took up her son and
Consider our Lord Jesus, though he
addresses his mother ns f'woman,"
when she must more deeply learn of
Ills Deity, yet when on the cross He
cpmmonds her to John ns "mother."
Ah, yes, if you search your Bible
through you will see that there ls no
disparaging of one sex in contrast
With the other. But sin ls here. And
while ono sinned earlier than the oth
er, both wore sinners. As a conse
quence all have sinned, hence both
women und mon must find their stand
ing Iii relation to this fact.
And who could lind any place for
contondlng for his own superiority
here? Here, evidently tho woman
would contend that the superiority ls
applicable to the man, saying that sho
ls the chief of sinners; while the man
would contend that such rank should
be rtccordcd to the woman, Insisting
that be ls the chief of sinners.
All of which only serves to more
clearly disclose tho fact that much de
bate and contention may attend re
forms, which Will utterly die out when
we declare for regeneration. Indeed,
questions which will not submit to j
solution through reform prove to have
been ul rea dy solved when those con- !
Eldering them have been really born
again. Reform methods may Imprison
tho criminal, but they cannot subdue
the criminality in his heart. Regen
eration makes the criminal a saint.
There ls a refinement which appears
even In the matter of the sexes which
only the accepted grace of God can
make possible. Mothers' day appeals
to us strongly, but If Mothers' day
means only a bracing up of sentiment
to the accompaniment of malling post
al cards and Howers, then refined
Christian mattiers would scorn lt. It
must bo characterized by thnt refine
ment which the new birth Imparts to
the meaning of the word mother; then
the Christian mother will be strength
ened In the faith, heartened In prayer
and pacified in tho conflict because of
Sin brought to humanity disagree
ment and discord, and lt has sadly
prevailed oven muong tho sexes. Grace
is tho one and only cure for both man
nnd womhn. When grace ls accepted
tbero follows In Its train a series of
ennobling and refining Influences
which assures between man und wom
an and between parents and children
and between employers and servants !
of either sex a custom of "doing good j
But lt nil rests upon Christian faith
rathor than upon cultured courtesy,
Through faith "women received their
d'end raised to life again." And lt Is
through faith that men become eager
to declare: "Help those women which
labored with mo in thc Gospel." i

Bigger made tho following state
"When I started taking Tanlac I
had been laid up with typhoid and

mighty bad shape. My stomach was
so out of gear (hat nothing agreed

I simply wasn't worth a nickel so

troubled with gas on my stomach and
had such bad dizzy spoils that I
could nattily stand up.
"I took six bottles of Tanlac in

Keittnl Pasha's Reply Considered to
Rc Evasive hy tho British.
London, Sept. 28.-British gov
ernment circles to-day took a gravo
view ol' tho situation in the Darda
nelles, which was regarded as so
critical as to overshadow the revolu
tionary developments in Greece. The
opinion was expressed that there ls
a greater prospect of lighting ' be

The cabinet was convened this
morning to consider a message from

he can to compel the British to lire j
tho first shot. The less serious view
is that ho is truthful in his state
ment that ho does not know where
the neutral zono extends.
It is pointed out that Gen. Haring
ton is laboring under tremendous re
sponsibility. Ho has boon told to do
all possible to avoid war, but to use
his'owe judgment. In his reply Mus
tapha Kemal says tho Angora gov- i
emmie; .loes not realize any neu

warships which have been anchored
near Constantinople and also about

The soil is a "farmer's bank," and
if he takes out of .it mgro fertility
each year in growing his crop than
he puta back into lt, it is Just Uko
drawing on his bank account-it will '
soon get where his checks will' bo
turned down for lack o? funds.
So your farm will refuse to grow
a paying crop. One of tho greatost
objects a farmor should have in
view is to build up his soil and innko *
it more fertile each year. And this;
can be dono in no other way than by
diversification, rotation of crops and
by sowing leguminous crops, such as
peas, velvet beans, bur clover, crim
son clover or votch. In tho next 30
days" either bur clovor or crimson
clover or vetch should bo sowed.
Land cannot bo made rich by haul
ing guano to tho farm and putting
it on tho land. If this could have
boon done, this country would have
boon a rich, fertile country. Any
farmer in this country can so farm
his land as to make a living on it,
pay his tn^es and innko his fand,
doublo or oven troblo Us production
in six yea,rs by using tho proper
methods of agriculture, nnd tboro is
nothing that will pay .bim a gre.ator
profit than to adopt those methods.
Working poor land is v?iry expensive.
1 know most of the land Is too poor
to grow a leguminous crop, and Ibo
land has to bo inoculated before lt.
will grow them, and seeds aro e:<
pe'nslvo; but I want to.suggoit a sn ny
and simplo method so any farmer
will bo able to start these legumin
ous crops to growing on Iiis farm.
Thoy recommend about 15 to 20
pounds of crimson clover seed to bo
sowed to tho nero, and lb to 20
poxinds of vetch, sowed broadcast,
and 1 hae known a great many who
failed to get. a stand. Theso seed
cost tnis year about 20 cents a pound
and there aro a great many furmora
who haven't $5.00 to put out on
seeds for ono acre. Now, I want to
suggest a little practical and choap
way that any farmor can uso to get
theso o.rops growing on his farm. I
have tried- those methods to got my
land Inoculated, and I know that
they will do it. ?
Theso crops should bo sowod with
in tho next thirty days, or they cniR
be sown at onco in your corn fields*.
or cotton fields. Tako a short gopher
plow and run a shallow furrow rv
tho mlddlo, fhon fasten a small chain
about five feet long to the foot of
the plow. Get a small cedar limb
nbout 1 Vs foot long and fasten to
the other end of the chain. Let it
drag tho furrow to cover tho sood.so
that tho inoculation bnctoria will not
get killod by the sun. You will have
to drop theso seed through u "guano
funnel. Walk Just behind tho viva
who ?opens tho furrow and drop Ibo
seed, and tho bush will como along
In furrow and cover the seed. By
this method three pounds of seed
will be enough to sow an acre oC
corn land, and 3% pounds enough
to sow cotton land with rows tbroo
feet wide. You can buy inoculation
through this ofllce for 50 couts per
aero for less than flvo acres. Over
flv6 acres the price is 10 cents por
I prefer vetch to either of tho clo
vers, and lt is much easier to get a
stand. As stated nhovo, most of tho
land is too poor to grow leguminous
' crops. This ls true, but by thia
'< mot hod votch sown in rows in Jan
; nary can be fertilized with 50 pounds
? of nit'rato of soda to thb aero, and
tho vetch will run all ovor tho land
and will make a fine growth, and
then your land will bo inoculated
for all time to como. ,lf you plant
thia samo land In corn, plant In tho
