There Is somo thing about this text which should give It peculiar lu tereflt to young fogmz MmM the apostle Paul Is writing to this young man, Tim othy, about athlet Ics. He Is ad vising him to avoid profane and silly fables, and "gymnlzo" him self la godliness, "Bodily exercise," he says, "proflteth a little, but godli ness Is profitable unto all things, hav ing promlso of the llfo that now is and that which Is to come." 1 would especially emphasize the "promise of tho life that now Is," be cause 'that Is what most young peo ple are thinking about. They admit tho value of godliness so far as the future is concerned, but that seoms afar off. It Is the present that con cerns them, and If godliness can bo of benefit to them now, thoy would liko to know it. You pay a premium on a Mfo insurace policy for many years In tho hopo of securing an an nuity In old ago; or you venture your capital In an Investment with tho ex pectation of an ultimate profit, but godliness Is not like those things. It Is more like a comfortable estate in tho hands of a trustee yielding a regu lar support, or a bona fldo business which maintains the proprietor from the moment ho engages In It. In other words, there Is not a single want of our nature for which thero 1b not a specific promise In the BIblo ready to be made over to us If we comply with the simple and reasonable conditions. Is It food and raiment? "Seek yo first the kingdom Of God and his righteousness, and all these things shall be added unto you." Is It counsel and direction In our dally affairs? "If any man may lack wis dom, let him ask of God who glveth to all men liberally, and upbraldeth not." Is It support In old age and death? "My God shall supply all your needs according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus." The Testimony of Expedience. But passing now from tho testimony of the Bible reflect, on that from ob servation and experience. Take the question of health, and the llfo Insur ance companies, Just referred to, will tell you that they make special rates for those whoso habits are supposed to bo promoted by true godliness. Take the question of fortune, and while It Is not affirmed that tho godly always become rich in this world's goods, yet they make better workmen, more Judicious managers and clearer thinkers, all of which Improves their financial status. "The blessing of the Lord It maketh rich and he addeth no sorrow with It." Take tho question of one's Influence and standing among men. Does not the world respect and value a truly godly man? Would not the world rath er deal with men who obey tho laws of God than with those who disobey them? A truly godly man will not sell his vote, nor defraud a neighbor, nor deceive a friend. He will give full measuro and weight, and will tell the truth. What Is Godliness? But what Is godliness? It Is not meroly making a profession of Chris tianity and uniting with the church, because there Is such a thing as "tho ' form of godliness without Its power." The thought of this text Is addressed to a young man who was already a Christian; who had already believed on the Lord Jesus Christ, and had been regenerated by his Holy Spirit; and that to which he Is urged is sim ply to conform his dally life more to tho gospel ho had thus embraced. To practice godliness, therefore, ono must first be godly, and to bo godly In tho Bible meaning of that term, Involves a clean heart and a right spirit which God bestows on thorn who accept him and confess his Son. "Ho that hath tho Son hath life and he that hath not the Son of God, hath not llfo" (1 Jno. v. 12). The first principle of godliness is obedience to God, and tho first principle of that obedlenco ir submission to the yoke of Christ. "There Is a tMe In tho affairs of men Which taken at the flood, leads on to for- tune; Omitted, nil the voyage of their life Is bound in shullowa and In miseries." If fortune bo taken In Its highest and holiest sense, then tho tide thut carrloB thither Is tho Name Above Every Name, and "there 1b none other name under heaven given among men whereby wo must be saved" (Acts 4: 12). "Now is the accepted time, today is tho day of salvation" (2 Cor. C:2). "Hear and your bouI shall live." Lenrn a lesson from tho times. In these days men aro bent on the development of their outward man, but do thou, not neglecting or despising that, bo equally bent on tho develop ment of thy Inner man.

Whon you purchase a box of sardines, or when you open It and dovour Its savory contents, do you ever think how many hands It passed through beforo It reached you? Tho Uttlo silvery fishes havo beon sub jected to a long series of operations by tho fishermen who extricated them from tho meshes of their nets, tho women who cleaned them, cooked them and Immersed them In a bath of oil, tho tlnssmlth who sealed the boxes, and a supplementary host of packers, carrlors and wholesalo and retail dealers.

Tho boxes aro classod as wholes, halves and quarters. Tho quarter box contains eight or ton Bar dines and Is tho most familiar slzo. Sometimes pimento, sliced lomons and pickles and other codlmcnts are put In tho bottom of tho box Tho filled boxes aro placed on largo trays and carried to tho oiling room( whore tho voids aro quickly filled with oil flowing from a row of taps which tho operator controls with ono hand whllo with tho other sho brings each box In turn under a stream of oil. The boxes nro sealod either by soldering or by folding nnd pinching the edgos. In tho former enso tho soldering iron Is continuously heated by a blowpipe "as It passes along tho edgo of tho box, which is clamped to a turntable. A slnglo blowor furnishes tho air blast for 50 to CO frames, tend ed by as many men. In tho nowor fac tories soldering has been rcplacod by the more rapid and more hygienic op eration of folding and pinching, which is performed by opeclal machinery so perfectly that tho lid Is herraotlcnlly Joined In tho box. Tho sealed boxes nro sterilized at a high temperature In nutoclaves and are then rolled In sawdust to remove oil and other Impurities from their ex terior. A curlous'and Important fact In tho biology of the sardine Is tho sudden ness with which the Uttlo flshos appear In great numbers and subsequently vanish, probably In ,consequenco of changes In oceanic conditions. Accord ing to M. Charles Rabot, sardines np pear In dense schools wherever they find tho most fnvorablo degrees of temperature and salinity nnd disap pear as soon as tho water has been replaced by n current of different char acter. Unfortunately, wo know noth ing of tho physical conditions which tho sordino seoks or of tho movement of various strata of water along tho coast. Wo do not know whether tho sardine prefers warm or cool water, very salt or modorately salt water, nor do wo knowj tho temperature and sa linity of thq sea at different seasons, depths and distances from land. In Brittany sardines nro caught with a vertical net, from 1.000 to 1,300 feet long nnd 2G to 33 feot deep, which Ib supported by corks fastened to Its upper border and Is attached to tho Btern of tho boat by a cord sovcrol yards long. As tho boat movos slowly against tho current tho sardines nro lured to tho net by salted cod thrown on the water. Tho net Is mndo of thread so fine that It Is almost Invis ibly nnd tho meshes are of such dimen sions that tho sardlnos thrust their heads through them and are caught by tho gills.

If It wero as profitable to westorn fnrmors a8 wheat or oats, It would bo used entirely for Beetling with al falfa. The common plan Is to drill In tho scod, using from S to 1C poundB por acre, depending on tho quality of tho seed, character of seed bed nnd mothod of sowing. Tho full amount of seed grain for tho nurao crop Ib not Bown, however, only from ono half to two-thirds tho normnl amount por ncro being used. This gives tho alfalfa more room and n bottor chnnco to grow. Tho nurso crop Ib usually removed beforo the alfalfa has grown enough to need moro room. Anothor reason why a nurso crop Is advisable Is that many types of west ern soils nro Inclined to blow. Flno particles of soil and sand, driven by tho wind, aro likely to cut down tho young alfalfa plnnts und Injuro or destroy tho ontl.ro flooding.
