"Ho" to the deer, or "Get thee behind

When the deer had grown tired of
tantalizing the law abiding Wes they
turned from the road and leaped up
an embankment. A wire fence waa

niul this the deer sought to clear. One

to rail an extra session. He must fight
for his life with the ungrateful and

then they were ready for his words
of confidence, "be not afraid." So Ood
speaks to us in the hour of out
darkest trial, Baying "Lo, I am wltb

From the parallel account by Mat

Peter's attempt to walk upon the wa

we see him as he too compares him

The disciples were amazed and
their hearts were hardened (vv. 51,

miracle of feeding the five thousand

those nearest to him did not appre
hend the true meaning of this miracle,
on the contrary their hearts were har

The real interpretation of Christ's
miracles is not that we are to be
amazed at the material manifestation
but that we are to see the spiritual
lesson and application.
It was a different reception Jesus
received when they reached Genne

There are three distinct vltlcultural
regions In the United Statea which
segregate themselves by the grape
spectra grown In them.
The Vlnlfera region. In which Vlnlf
ra varieties are almost exclusively
grown, Is located almost entirely west
of the Rocky mountains, so much of
It being In California that those not
conversant with grape varieties erro
neously call them California grapes.
With few exceptions either the spur,
atool or abort pruning aystem Is used
for the stockier growing varieties, and
the long or cane pruning system la
usually used for the lunger growing
varieties, but either aystem Is often
modified to ault individual varieties.
Thus the spurs are sometimes left
longer In the spur system, and either
spurs and canes left longer or spurs
cut on the laterals in the rane aystem.
Stakes only are used to give the
Yinea the necessary support; this
method allows the vineyard to be cul
tivated crosswise as well as length
wise. Vines trained on trellises are
comparatively rare In California.
The more generally known Vlnlfera
varieties grown In this district are thp

to the Rio Grande river, spreading to

Into the great central plains to south

the better-known varieties of these

There are so many species of
grapes, each having peculiarities of
its own and therefore responding most
readily to certain cultural methods to
which It Is best adapted, that the prun
ing, training and Rrowing ot vines,
which otherwise may appear quite
simple, become complicated opera
tions In which comparatively few
people become expert, and vineyards
In which serious mistakes are not
made are rare.
In the fan system tbe vine growth,
which Is trained to an upright trellis.
Is annually renewed to within a short
distance from the ground. The vines
are cut back usually to four canes and
as many spurs each year; the canes
are spread out and tied to the trel
lis, giving the vine the shape of a fan.
The Illustration, A aif C, shows an
unpruned vine in the third and fourth
years. 11 shows the same vine pruned
the fourth year for this system.
The advantages claimed by the ad
vocates of this system are (1) that
most of the old wood Is dispensed with
each year, (2) that the vines can be
easily laid down and covered In win
ter when needful in the extrem
northern sections, and (3) that if
after pruning the canes are tied and
spread fan shaped on the trellis, as
they should be, the. young upright
growing shoots fasten themselves by
their tendrils and need practically no
