as children of light." The whole
life and course of the Christian is in

that you may enjoy the privileges which
belong to the chilGren of light." So
walk that you may meet the obliga

that you may realize the needs of the
peculiar relationship. So walk tha!
the dangers which' lie in your pathway
may be successfully avoided. So walk
that the blessings which are promised
to them who love Christ and keep Hi3

be a child of the light. It is more
than wearing a badge or a button; it
involves more than church member

known as a child of the light. First,
then, what are the privileges? They
are almost mnumeraole, but there are
four which particularly command our
attention: Firs, access to and fellow-

The spirit of the Greeks has descended

of light hare privileges of knowing
such as the children of the darkness

Jesus when He left His disciples waa

truth ia emphasized in the epistles of
the different aDOstles. "Be filled with

of every Christian. It must be had if
he would be equipped for service. And
the next essential is the unobstructed

the country to the first position among
the nations of the world. Neither the

devoted to farming. The old eouutry

RECLAMATION OF FARMS.
SaceeftHful It o nils Follow the Plant
ing of Clover and Cow Pea
on Sterile I.amln.
ThTaugh the use of cow peas and
clover the officers of the Missouri state
board of agriculture hope to reclaim
many of the deserted farms of the
state and bring back to barren lands
its former fertility. Many farmers, in
an endeavor to reclaim farms, resorted
to the life of commercial fertilizers.
but the method is too expensive to in
sure profitable crops. "
In the general introduction of cow
peas and clover, It is thought that the
problem of reclaiming this land has
been solved.- A series of experiments

the area of barren land in Missouri is
very small, as compared with that of
oldier states, it is rapidly growing
larger, and the necessity of immediate
remedy is apparent to thoee who re
alize the situation.
The reason for recommending clover
and cow- peas ia because they possess a
power peculiar to this class of plants,
of gathering nitrogen from tbe air.
Nitrogen, one of th9 important ele
ments of plant teed, is required by
all domestic plants, and is the uio3t

To cure, or money refunded by your merchant, so why not try
expensive part of commercial fertilis
ers. The other staple farm crops, euch aa
corn, wheat, timothy, blus grass, rye
and millet, have not the power of
gathering, net rosea from the ailr, and
mu,st di&p?nd upon the-available sup
ply already in the soil. This, in part,
explains why clover and cow peas, al
though prodiudntg a hay crop rich in
the elements of plant food, will leave
the soil on which, this product 19 grown
more productive than: before.
Oni land that badly worn the care
ful saving of the farm fertilizers and
the proper rotation) of clover and cow
pease with the other farm crops, will
keep up the fertility ofthe soil, and
will avoid the necessity of the purchase
of any commercial fertilizers.
Unfortunately, there are many fail
ures, often under the very best man
agement, connected with the attempt
to grow clover. The experiment sta
tion at Columbia receives more in
quiries as to the best method of seed
ing and caring for the clover crop than
any other problem in agriculture. As
a result, of these inquiries the station
has undertaken a series of experiments
to determine the proper season 'to sow
clover and the best methods of pro
cedure. On the station groumls for the past
two ycarr, once each week," clover has
been sown from the 1st of February
to the 10th of April. The result of
these experiments have demonstrated
that the best time to sow clover is
about the middle of March. When
sowed earlier than; that, an early warm
ppell will germinate the seed too early
and leave the young plants the victims
of a late frost.
The cow pea appars to have the
ability to thrive on land too poor to
grow red or crimsoni clover. It is not
affected so seriously as clover by ex
cessive heat or drought, and is not
easily smothered out by weed's.
On moist soils in central and south
ern Missouri it yields a larger quantity
of vegetable matter containing alarger
total quantity of nitrogen than does
red clover. In the sections of the state
where the crmate is well adapted' to
the growth of cow peas it is believed
that they will prove more satisfactory
as a green manure crop than either
red or crimson clover, e?iecially on,
poor soils, inasmuch as there is less
risk in securing a stand, and there is
no danger of the hot weather In the
midsummer killing the young plants.
Compared with other fertilizer crops,
the cow pea seems to grow especially
well on poor land. On a piece of nat
urally poor upland clay, which has for
the past fifty years been, grown in
corn, and wheat without fertilizer, the
section began last spring a number of
experiments in methods of restoring
the soil to productiveness. On ?ix of
these plot9 cow peas were sown with
out fertilizer. The average j-ield of
vines and pods was very larg?, and
aside from the fertlirimg properties of
the crop showed it to have a valueof
55.90 an acre. Missouri University
