ringing with hilarity, when the por-

The passengers stopped laughing at
Marjoile, to laugh at the forter. Ash-
ton sang out:
What's the matter with you, por-
ter? Are you trying to crow?" !
Kverybody roared nt this, till the I
porter finally managed to articulate:
"T-t t train rob rob roblers!"
Silence shut down as If the whole
crowd had been smitten with paraly
sis. From somewhere outside and
ahead came a pop-popping as of fire-
crarkers. Kverybody thought, "Ke
volvers!" The reports wore mingled
with barbaric yells that turned the
marrow In every bone to snow.
These regions are full of historic
terror. All along tbo Nevada route
the conductor, the brakemen and old
travelers had pointed out scene after
scene where tho Indians had slaked
the thirst of the arid land with white
man's blood. Ashton, who bad trav
eled this way many times, had made
himself fascinatingly horrifying the
evening before and ruined several
breakfasts that morning In the dining-
car, by regaling the passengers with
stories of pioneer ordeals, men and
women massacred In burning wagons,
or dragged away to fiendish cruelty !
and obscene torture, staked out supine
on burning wastes with eyelids cut
off, bound down within reach of rat
tlesnakes, subjected to every misery
that human deviltry could devise.
Ashton hail brought his fellow pas
sengers to a state of ecstatic excit
ability, and, like many a recounter of
burglar stories at night, had tuned
his own nerves to high tension.
The violent stopping of the train,
the heart-shaking yells and shots out
side, found the passengers already apt
to respond without delay to the ap
peals of fright After the first huso,
of dread, came the reaction to panic.
Kach passenger showed bis own
panic In his own way. Ashton whirled
round and round, like a horse with
the blind staggers, then bolted down
the aisle, knocking aside men and
women. He climbed on a seat, pulled
down an upper berth, and, scrambling
Into It, tried to shut It on himself.
Mrs. Whitcomb was so frightened that
she assailed Ashton with fury and
seizing his feet, dragged him back In
to the aisle, und beat him with her
lists, demanding that he protect ber
and save her for Sammy's sake.
Mrs. Fosdlck, rushing out of her
stateroom and not finding her lus
cious-eyed husband, laid hold of Jlm
mle Wellington and ordered blm to
go to the rescue of her spouse. Mrs.
Wellington tore her hands loose, cry
ing: "Let him go, madam. He has a
wife of his own to defend."

The oldest almanac in existence Is
tho "Alwanach National," which has
been Issued by the French govern
ment since 1CSS. Its name has been
changed a good many times during
its career of 225 years. Originally the
"Almanach Koyal," It became "Na
tional" In 17:i, "Imperial" In l&'Jo,
and reverted to Its original name nine
years later. Since tben the title has
been altered four times. Like most
publications of this sort, the "Al
manach National" has grown bulky
with advancing years. The first Issue
contained 48 pages, as compared with
1,680 pages In the current Issue.

confession Is connected closely with
the lesson for today. There is no rec
ord of the Intervening "six days." Wo
are left to surmise what of fear and
perplexity Dllcd the minds of the dis
ciples after listening to tho words of
Jesus found In Mark 8:34 and 9:1.
These words must certainly havo ,
filled them with doubt and dismay.
As If to meet this condition of mind
Jesus takes Peter, James anil John, ,
thoso three partners in business, who !
were also present In the homo of
Jrirus, nnd later went with him Into (
tho garden, and withdrew to a mouu- .
tain, probably Mt. llermon. Here ho !
was transformed. I.e., metamorphosed, j
completely changed In appearance;
read carefully the parallel accounts.
Paul's .Inspired Words.
Joined with Jesus there stood
Moses the luwglver and Elijah tho
gieat reform prophet. What a com
mentary as to the Interest of heaven
in a dying Messiah and in the glory
of that death.
We need to read Paul's Inspired
words (Phil. 2:6.7) In this connoc-
licn. He who thought It not a prize
to bo grasped after to be equal with
God, yet took upon himself the form
of a slave and was made In the habit
or fashion of a man. Upon the moun
tain Jesus reversed the figure and the
"servant" the Son of Man revealed,
e. g., showed forth, the glorious ap
pearance of the Son of God. The dis
ciples there caught a faint glimpse of
that glory which he had with the
I'ather before the world was (John
17:6). Hut the work of redemption,
was not yet accomplished, and so
once more he turns back upon that
glory. Small wonder, though, that as
they beheld theBe heavenly visitors
Peter should exclaim: "Rabbi, it Is
good for ub to be here; let us make
three tabernacles (booths), one for
thee, one for Moses and one for Eli
jah." Notice, however, that Peter
spake "for he wist not what to say"
(v. G). Mark alone records these
words, and Mark largely received his
gospel from Peter. ,
Three Heavenly Voices Heard.
We have only to read 2 Peter, 1:16
18 to answer any question as to this
being a vision in the modern accept
ance of that term. We are also told
that the word "vision" found In verse
9 of the lesson can be translated,
"things seeu." Indued the disciples
were "fully awake" (Luke 9:32 It. V.).
The question as to how the disciples
could recognize Moses and Elijah,
whom they bad never seen, is not at
all difficult for the believer. They ap
peared "In glory" and when the glorjr
was withdrawn they saw "no man
This also serves to help answer the
question, "Shall we recognize in glory
those whom wo have lost awhile?"
Throe heavenly voices were heard.
Jesus' voice in prayer, his compan
ions conversing of that great event
yet to be accomplished (Luke 9:31)
and the voice of God, "This la my be
loved (only begotten) Son; hear him."
What matters the opinions ot earth's I
greatest lawyers and prophets, or the
suggestions of our dearest friends.
Fear fell upon them and they fell
upon their faces In humiliation, but
with tender compassion Jesus said
"arise and be not afraid." H almost
eecms like a rebuko to Peter, who had
so freely protested against the sugges
tion of the manner of his death.
Jesus' transfiguration and the words
of bis companion, as well as the com
mand of the Father, were a vindica
tion of his authority and a revelation
la advance of the supreme wonder of
the cross. Arising they "saw no man
save Jesus." It is far better to "see
him" than to see, bold converse with,
or have communion with, the great
est of earth, past or present. j
2. The descent, v. 9:13. As they
descended from the mountain Jesus
charged them to tell no man. Very ,
different from our modern method.
Iiut the need Is clearly shown as we
read Peter's words (2 Peter, 1:15-21).
Peter places great emphasis upon the
Importance of this experience, declar
ing himself as an eyewitness ot his
"majesty" as well as the "honor and
glory." Peter and the others could
not talk Intelligently of this experi
ence until after Christ's work w
"finished" upon Calvary, vindicated at
the tomb and glorified on tho day of
Tentecost. Hence they "kept that
saying with themselves," obeying his
Injunction of silence.
The transfiguration is a glorious
fact; it is a wondrous light upon the
"scandal of the cross;" a wonderful
revelation of tho glory which "he had
before the world;" and it Is a
prophecy of the glory yet to be ro
ealed. It served to help tho dls
ciiles during those days of darknesp
nnd doubt through which they were
about to pass and It has been an In
spiration to the Christian church
throughout the subsequent ages. H
In also a most significant warning.

CONSTRUCTION OF SUBSTANTIAL POULTRY
HOUSES IN EXTREMELY COLD CLIMATES
No Matter What Design Is Used South Side Should Not Be Less
Than Seven Feet High With Windows Extending to
Top Accommodates 50 Birds.
Poulfir housing In the west Is
subject that has causod a lot of dis
cission ariong poultrymen and far
mers. It Is argued by some that ow
ing to our w inters, the cost of build
ing suitable hotiBcs would bo so
great that tho profits of the poultry
man would be eaten up before he got
started. After having had six win
ters' experience In Alberta, we are
using eighteen houses of the typo 11-
1 lustrated In this article that have
, been constructed somewhat cheaper
I than the houses we used In Ontario.
The house Illustrated Is 12x20 feet,
giving accommodation for CD birds.

Some may try to dispute this and
claim that not more than 40 birds
should be kept In It, as that Is the
rule In the east, but owing to our dry
atmosphere we can keep them in
closer quarters as the main protoc
tlon Is required In the night.
We build the houses four feet high
on the northsldo and seven feet high
on the south side. No matter what
design of house Is built, the south
side should not be less than seven
feet high, with the windows extending
right to the top. Starting at the bot
tom of the house (remember there is
no board floor) there should be suf
ficient earth brought in In the fall of
the year to raise the ground Inside
about six Inches higher than the
ground outside. That will give good
drainage so that the earth will re
main looBe and dry all winter. It alBO
provides a dust bath for the fowls
and does away with the box In the
corner. Six or eight inches of
threshed straw should be placed on
the ground Inside the bouse in the
winter, so that the birds can be kept
buBy in the cold weather. The drop
ping board la built 20 inches above
the ground, and should be 18 Inches
wide for each perch. The perches
should be 2x4 scantling, on edge, or
a good, strong pole, and should be
suspended from the raof and not
touch the side of the tiouso, as it Is
much easier to Isolate the fowls from
the vermin than to keep the vermin
out of the house. The top of the
perches should not be more than
eight Inches above the dropping
board. Then a platform made of 1x2
HEN HOUSE MUST
HAVE GOOD CARE
Simple Form of Whitewash,
Thinned to Desired Consis
tency, Is Commonly Used.
Most of those who whitewash the
fowl houses regularly use the sim
plest form of whitewash, made by
slaking common lime in boiling water
and thinning to the desired consist
ency. If to be used as a spray the
wash Is strained. A spoonful of crude
carbolic acid, added to each pailful.
Increases the disinfecting properties,
but lime alone Is very cleanBtng, and
many dislike the somewhat persistent
odor ot the carbolic acid. There is
another form of wash liked better by
some, on account of Its more gluey
i characteristics, as ordinary whitewash
rubs off rather easily. For this, one
half bushel of lime, one peck of salt,
three pounds of ground rice, half a
pound of Spanish whiting and one
pound of clear glue are the rightly
proportioned Ingredients. Slake the
lime In boiling water, keeping It Just
covered with the water. Strain It and
add the salt, the rice, which has been
boiled with water to a thin paste, the
whiting and the glue, previously dis
solved In warm water. Mix carefully
and let the mixture stand three or
four days. When ready to use the
wash reheat it and apply while hot.
Food for Poultry.
We must furnish our hens with
grain, green stuff and meat. More
over, tho quantity must be about right
of each. If they are not given
enough they will have to use It all
for body building and heat-production,
and will have nothing left over to
make eggs with. If we feed too
much of some kinds the surplus will
go to 'at and the hens will get too
lazy to lay.
Inch stuff, set say four Inches apart,
should be built 20 Inches above the
top of the perches and should extend
out even with the front of the drop
ping board. Straw Bhould be packed
on this platform up to tho roof. Then
make a curtain of coarse burlap or
old grain sacks, which, when attach
ed to the front of tho platform will
drop down two Inches below the
dropping board. If this curtain Is let
down at night during cold weather
