thought it would tickle the old man
to propose him for chairman of a big

he would accept. He did accept, how
ever, and on mounting the platform
made the following speech:

DISINFECT CABBAGE SEED.
Some Men of Scien'-a Consider It tha
Only Sure Way of Prevent
ing Slack Hot.
Some cabbage growers believe that
cabbage black rot is transmitted by
means of the seed. This belief is based
upon their observation that plants
from one lot of seed often rot worse than
plants from another lot of seed of the
same variety under similar conditions of
soil and culture. In spite of such evi
dence scientific investigators have
doubted that there could be any danger
in ufcing infected seed. It seemed im
possible that the germs of the disease
could live over winter on the dry seed.
However, this being a point of great
practical importance, the New York Ag
ricultural Experiment station decided to
investigate it. A quantity of cabbage
soffl was wet with watpr rnntainlmr th
germs of the disease, then dried and
stored in a dry place. Once a month tho
sreds were tested for the presence of liv
ing germs. These experiments are still
in progress; but at the end of ten month3
some germs were found still alive, and
.healthy cabbage plants inoculated with
these germs bhowed unmistakable
pymptoms of black rot in from two to

jjiack rot is a common disease in seed
cabbage fields in this country; also in
Holland and Denmark. As a conse
quence, much of our cabbage seed,
both the imported and home grown,
must be infested with black rot germs,
With these facts established, it is
plain that some method of seed disin-
fection should be employed as a safe-
guard against this source of infection
It is recommended that cabbage and
cauliflower seeds be soaked for 15 min-
utcs in a one to 1,000 solution of corro-
s-ive sublimate and then spread out-to
dry. By experiment it has been found
(hat this treatment will not injure tho
germination of the seed. The most
convenient method of preparing the
solution is to use the corrosive subli-
mate tablets sold by druggists for mak-
ing disinfecting solutions. One tablet,
costing one cent, is sufficient to make
a pint of solution, which is about the
quantity required to treat one pound of
It is scarcely to be expected that the
above treatment will give complete
protection against black rot. The
benefit mav be verv small. But. as the
treatment costs nothing except a little
bother, and no other remedy being
known, it is certainly advisable to dis
infect the seed and thereby avoid un
necessary risk. Detroit Free Press.
CHECKING THE CUTWORMS.
It Is a Task Hequiring a Lot of Sys

weather they crawl about from ona

weather their attacks are usually do-

One way of protecting the plants
against the attacks of these worms 13
to wrap paper loosely about them at
setting time, having the paper reach
at least an inch below the ground
and two inches above. The worms do
not seem to know how to get under
or over such an obstruction. In a dry
time the wrapper should extend below
the moisture line in the soil, but be-
low that line the worms will not go.
Care should be taken to have it loose
enough about the stem to leave the
plant free to develop naturally. In
some cases gardeners that have many
plants to protect use tin protectors,
Strips of tin about eight inches Ions
and three inches wide are used. Be
fore the tin is bent into a circle the
ends for about one inch are folded
back to form two hooks that clasp into
each other and make the joint that

cylinders are taken off and stored

hidden motives of others and clearly
understand the purposes which underly
their conduct toward us. Neither is it
wise or right that we should he always
supposing that others in their relations
to us have ulterior motives or selfish
ends to serve. But Jesus, who could
read the heart and "knew what was in
man," always understood the impulses
and purposes of the people who drew
near unto Him and followed Him. In
fact He could read the heart better
than man could himself; He could pen-
etrate deeper and understand more
clearly the impulses and motives than
could man himself; fcr no man knows
himself perfectly, nor is conscious of
the many underling . conditions and
motives which rule in his life. And so
when that great multitude of people
who had received His bounty in the
wilderness and been filled had sought
Him out at Capernaum the next day. He
knew at once what had brought them,
He knew what thoughts had stirred in
their breasts the day before when they
wanted to make Him a king, and He
understood what had drawn them so
eagerly around the shore line of the
lalie and Dack to the city again. There-
rore ln answer to their wondering
Question as to how He had come
thither so quickly, He replies: "Ye

AND by His earnest, searching re
buke He at once laid bare the hid
den motives which brought them to
Him and forcibly suggested the high
est desires which should cause one to
seek Him. Jesus came not to minister
to the physical man, the lower nature,
but to the spiritual, the higher, na
ture that is, the soul of man. He
did not come to establish a bake shop
and a soup kitchen, at which the hun
gry multitudes could be fed. He did
not come to make man think of his
stomach and to find satisfaction when
it was full and to feel no higher im
pulses or aspirations. He did not
come to make this life so attractive and
easy, to multiply the comforts of the
natural man. by miraculous touch, s-o
that man should forget that he had
greatest r-eed of man was the soul
need, and that lie might become for it
the Bread of Life that could give life
eternal, and satisfy the deepest needs of
the soul. Jesus plainly declared His
mission in the world when He said
"I came that they may have life, and
may have it abundantly." And over and
over and over again He stated this fact
And He who came with this supreme
purpose; He who lived and suffered and
died that this purpose might be ac
comphshed, searchcth the hearts of
men to see what it is that draws them
unto Him. What is it that the all-pen-
etratin eye of the Lord beholds?
What hidden motives, what selfish
ends and aims lie buried in theheart,
unknown and unobserved by men, but
painfully apparent to God? Must not
Jesus say over and over again to mul-
titudes in the world to-day who are
nominally His followers, who are mem
bers of Christian congregations, who
share in the activities of tho church
life: "Verily, veriiy, I say unto you,
ye seek Me, not because ye saw signs,
but because ye ate of the loaves and
I ET us analyze this condition a little
Lv more carefully and see if we cannot
lay bare some of the dangerous possi
bilities lurking here? What are some
of the motives that draw people into the
church? I overheard a woman say once
that she had united with a certain
church because of the social advantages
which it gave. In the community where
she lived the social life was largely cen
tered in the church, and observing this
she sought membership therein that she
might eat of the loaves of the social life
and be filled. I knew a man at one time
who, with business keenness, identified
himself with the church because of the
trade it would bring him. Having tasted
of the patronage of the church people
and coveting more of these loaves, he
eagerly sought church association and
fellowship that he might gain the more.
These are the lower and base motives
7'hich may tempt people to seek the
church. Then there are the desires for
the philanthropic and benevolent ac
tivities which find expression in the
cnurcn lite, ine nner. nobler feelings
of the natural man desire a channel
through which they may flow, and this
feature of the church life appeals
strongly to one and he seeks the church
for this purpose. And to such Jesus
must say: "Ye seek, Me, not because
I can give you eternal life, but because
ye are interested in a certain worthy
and commendable w ork which gratifies
the religious sense and encourages a
relf-satisfled complacency." Or, educa
tion and training may fit for teaching
of a large Sunday school class, or the
leading of a literary society within the
church. All the interests and energies
are enlisted in the work. There is great
pleasure and satisfaction in the work,
and the work is well done, and shows!
splendid results from an educational
and literary standpoint, but again Jesus
may be forced to say: "Ye seek. Me,
not because you have been saved nd
i ixxJuzt 'a flu ..! -
seek to save others, but because you hav
tasted of the intellectual joys of the
natural man and take pride and pleas
ure in the work." Or, you may be the
member of some of the numerous so
cieties, or of the successful Bible class
and be drawn and held there by the
power of numbers and the association
of congenial spirits. The- connection
may bring self-gratulation, and self
satisfaction, but Jesus may see the real
secret of your activity and interest, and
be forced to condemn you, because you
seek Him not for Himself alone, but for
the fellowship and pleasureyou find with
others. And so with other activities
which may engage you in the church.
What is the motive which draws and
AND this analysis of motives must
not omit the object and purpose of
attendance upon religious meetings.
Some gather for the worship of God,
but you go for what? To seeycur neigh-
bor's bonnet; to admire or criticise her
new frock; to hear the latest gossip; to
plan for the next social event; to talk
over some business project with Deacon
So-and-So, who lives away ever on the
other side of town and whom vl- can
conveniently see at meeting and save a
trip to -his home; to see the girls and
smile and -motion and whisper to them
through meeting and then bow them
home, and vice versa, to see the boys
and to scandalize the meeting and dis
honor God by your frivolous conduct?
These and a thousand and one other
things take one to meeting. Examine
your heart and let the Lord fhow you
what He sees there. The same sorrow
which filled His heart as He beheld that
great multitude come trailing back to
Capernaum to find Him because it had
partaken of the loaves for the physical
body must move His heart to-day as He
sees many, many go to His house unccr
the pretense and guise of worship. What
is it takes us to the place where two or
three are wont to meet together in the
name of Jesus? Are our hearts filled
with the purpose to behold His won-
drous works in the hearts of men; are
we tanned with tne desire to learn oi
Him and to have sweet communion with
Him? While the hymns of praise and
worship are beingsung, while the prayer
is being offered, while the Word of God
is being read or expounded by preacher
of laymen, and the testimonies, of what
are we thinking? Are our thoughts cen
tered in the direction to which our steps
have just brought us, or are they back
at the office, or out on that play ground,
or off on the fishing excursion, or the
hunting trail? Where are we anyway?
Be honest with yourself and with God!
Are you seeking the Lord with honest
purpose and simple heart, or are you
running after the Lord that the physical
and material things of life may be more

multitude tnat sat upon the grassy

How pitiable it is to think of one
choosing the gaudy bit of glass when
right next to it is the sparkling, pure,
priceless diamond; think of the folly
of one taking the cheap, inartistic
chromo, when one might have had Che
splendid masterpiece of art. And yet
this but feebly and insufficiently ex
presses the folly of one who will not
seek the Lord for the best which lie
has to give.
HAT was the trouble with that
multitude? What is the troublfe
with multitudes to-day, that they will
not seek the Lord for the higher needs
of the soul rather than for the needs
of the natural man? A few days be
fore the experience set forth in our
text, Jesus had been talking with the
Jews, many of whom were doubtless
among those to whom the rebuke of
our text was spoken. At that time He
said: "Ye will not come to Me that
ye may have life," and this perhaps is
the best and most complete explana
tion which could be offered for theii
unbelief and hardness of heart. They
would come for the loaves and fishes,
but they would not come to the Life-
Giver that they might obtain tLa life
more abundant. When the reasoa for
unbelief is reduced to its last analysis,
it amounts to just this, "Ye will no."
The multitude was blind because it
would not see; it was indifferent be
cause it would not be quickened by tho
Divine presence; it was unresponsive
to the needs of the soul because it
would not turn from the material'
things of this life. And so it is with
people to-day. The will is in the way.
It puts first the natural desires, and
places second the needs of the soul.
The will rules and crowds out the rule
of the blessed Christ. There is some
thing appalling in the thought of how
near that multitude came to Jesus and
yet remained indifferent and unrespon
sive to the eternal life which He was
so eager to give. And what tragedy it
is that souls to-day come near to Je
sus, hear His message delivered, re
ceive of His temporal bounty, and still
remain dead, when the Divine life of
Christ might flaw through them if they
only would s?fk Jesus!
