There are many farms that have land suitable for sheep, and good for nothing else. Mr. S. G. Norton, noted as a suc cessful farmer, has always kept sheep, and certainly would not have continued to keep them if they had not proved profit able. He kept them on his farm in Pa lermo, and since retiring from the office of Sheriff of Waldo county has kept a small flock on his farm in South Belfast and is the first to market spring lambs, which bring an extra price. In the very early days the wool from the Maine farmers sheep was carded, spun and made into clothing by the farmer’s wife. In later years many sheep were kept, but with an adverse tariff this industry declined here and elsewhere in the coun try until not enough wool was produced for home consumption., Alfred Decker of Alfred Decker & Cohn, Chicago, in an address before the annual convention of the Ohio Retail Clothiers convention, Feb'y 14, 1917, presented some interest ing and important facts and figures in support of his plea that the clothing manufacturers and retailers should get behind the “more sheep, more wool” campaign recently started and which has culminated in the National Sheep and Woo! Bureau, located in Chicago. Wool is one of the few every day es sentials that we do not raise in sufficient quantity to meet our wants: Virtually all other raw products required for our daily wants are produced in excess of our needs, and we have a surplus to sell to foreign countries. But while our population is increasing, our sheep are decreasing. We consume in this coun try approximately five hundred and fifty ro six hundred million pounds a year. We raised last year two hundred and eighty-eight million pounds, which means that we were obliged to import about three hundred million pounds. While in 1900 one million farmers kept sheep, and in 3910 three quarters of a million, to day. judging from good sources of in- I formation,only about one-half million are engaged in raising wool. There are to day thirteen million less sheep in the United States than in 1900. In seven years our crop diminished over thirty and one-tali million. Texas has two and one half million sheep againBt eight mil lion in 1883, and the State of Texas could, if the country was fenced, sup port enough sheep to supply the whole nation. The far Western States Bhow the same ratio of decrease; only two or three States show a slight increase. The decrease of sheep raising in some sections is due to industrial and agricul tural development along other lines. Texas is producing oil and growing onions and other vegetables where form erly sheep were herded, but there are thousands of acres as yet uncultivated and unimproved, suitable for sheep rais ing, and this is measurably true of other States. As Mr. Decker said in hie dress: ‘‘There is room a plenty for more than 150 million sheep in the United States. There are many million acres of cut-over land in the North and South awaiting the golden hoof that enriches every good inch of ground it treads.” Comparing England with our situation Mr. Decker says: “You can put that whole country in the upper and lower peninsular of Michigan, and yet they have thirty miilon sheep. If they can raise wool profitably on land valued at from $500 to $2,000 per acre, why not here? Sheep have made England the richest agricultural nation of its size in the world. Without sheep, millions of acres of chalk, so-called barren land in England, would be useless for the pro duction of farm crops. But sheep are the greatest fertilizer. Put sheep on the worn-out farms of New England and you will no longer see her sons move away.” This mention of England recalls to the writer notes of a trip to England and Scotland some years ago. We did not see much of the agricultural sections and saw but one large sheep ranch (as it would be called in this country) and that was in the vicinity of Edinburg. But we saw sheep everywhere. If the avail able land would only support half a dozen sheep that number was kept, and with more land there were more sheep. Sheep were always found on the estates of the nobility and of people of wealth, as much for their meat as for their wool, and the many small units helped to make up the grand total of thirty millions. The same result would be brought about in this country if every farmer would follow the example of those across the water and keep what Bbeep he could well care for. Not many would engage in sheep raising on a large scale although under present conditions it must be prof itable. THE CHIEF CHUR OF LOVELY WOHAH Soft, Clear, Smooth Skin Comet With The Ute Of “FRUIT-A-TIVES”. »- - ■ ..III . ■. 1 NORAH WATSON 86 Drayton Aye., Toronto.

The United States will come last, and all nations will fight for the wool of South America, which, however, is more likely not to increase materially, as her best grazing lands are being cut up for farms and grains.

The following dispatch and its reply definitely commits the national organiza tion of Camp Fire Girls to the highest form of patriotic service: “To the President of the United States: Eighty-eight thousand Camp Fire Girls, from twelve to eighteen years old, pledge themselves to preparedness in the home; they pledge themselves to learn to care for babies and little chil dren; to study the economical production and preparation of food; to learn the theory and practice of simple "first aid,” to guard at every point their bodily health, and that of the women of the nation.” The Camp Fire Girls, Inc. (Signed Luther Gulick, Pres. Lester F. Scott, Sec. Gabrielle Mulliner, Exec, Com. The White House, Washington. ‘ ‘The President deeply appreciates your very generous and patriotic proffer of your services, and he wishes in this in foi mal way to express his grateful thanks.” To those familiar with the principles of Camp Fire this action on the part of its leaders does not come as a surprise. Since July, 1916, when a new rank known as the Minute Girls was created preparation for the present crisis has been going quietly forward and an army of girls and women have fitted them selves for practical service through a knowledge of baby craft, home econo mics, primitive methods of food prepara tion, building and controlling of out of door fires, first aid and personal hardi hood. Dr. Gulick says: in “Wohelo”: “We have taken the pledge of Bervice. What form that service is to take must be for our leader to decide—the leader who was chosen by a great people to represent them before the nations in this hour of world peril. Ours is a peculiar place in the great army corps, we are an organization of girls—have girls any part in prepared ness? Can they do anything in times of trouble or calamity? We believe that Camp Fire Girls will prove in thousands of homes and communities that they have a very real service to give to their country. In the last analysis it is the home for which men give their lives—the crossed logs of the fire and the loved ones who gather there. If when the word comes, it be a call to armB, it will be ours to kee p the crossed logs burning, to make the spirit of Camp Fire, which is the spirit of the home, reach out to the very forefront of the battle to cheer and give courage.” Worms Handicap lour Child.

To the Editor of The Journal: Here we have the fountain source of all literature, a sparkling spring gurgling out of the earth on the eastern continent. Its waters have flowed to the uttermost parts of the earth. And when a speaker takes an audience to the Bpring and says “Here is the place where all must drink, for the outgoing water becomes so con taminated as to be decidedly injurious,” we do not wonder that those who have found very pure water in other places, get sleepy. The fountain spring ia good in its place, but the stream below is use ful in many ways as for power and navi gation. There is no doubt that Bible writers were one with the creative spirit of the universe and thereby acquired from creative sources thoughts beneficial to themselves and the people who read of their experience. But it cannot with truth be said that the Bible writers were more fully direct ed by the Divine spirit than the producer of a steam engine, and a large part of the Christian world is beginning to recog nize this fact. Religious fanatics who would confine religion within the lids of the Bible, or within the four walls of the sanctuary, are the greatest enemies of Christianity. Dr. Batten of Philadelphia, who as secretary of a federation of more than thirty Christian denominations recently spoke in Seattle in behalf of social wel fare work made social welfare work as essential to Christian life as prayer. Of course as a social worker he was intensely interested in the places of abode from which the thousands of innocent American children come to the juvenile courts to be sentenced to a brief stay in some house of correction, only to be re turned to their former habits of life. The comforts of home they never knew, except during their brief Btay at the re formatory. The reformatory should be abolished and in its place a home should be established for the children. Such a work would be true prayer, clothed in material form. It is high time that peo ple should go about their own work in stead of eternally imploring God to do it for them. .... ...i,,. ,l.:i- t.il, tr.. ....M.r.™., of today by methods adapted to primeval ages are so many useless weights im peding the progress of society. Luther thought to reform the church, but suc ceeded in simply establishing a new rill from the same fountain, and later in life decided that no one beside himself should attempt a similar work; hut, like Paul of old, thought all should follow him as he followed Christ, Paul was not the first man thinking himself in the direct pro cession leading from Christ to futurity. We read in the history of the disciples of those performing miracles in the name of Christ. Other disciples reported the matter to the Master, adding and “we forbade them because they followed not us.” But the response was “Forbid them not, for those not against us, are for us.” Again we have given as Christian graces, "faith, hope and charity, but the greatest of these is charity.” Faith to many is simply the realization of the existence of divinity as the origin of nature. To others, it is a belief in the fallacy that the wrath of Divinity is ap peased by sacrifice. Out of this fallacy grew asceticism. Faith in its fullness is confidence in the fullness of nature’s laws. But we are told that charity is greater than any form of faith. And what is charity? Charity is an attempt to view the matter from the other fel lows view point. We know that the picture of a building looks very different when taken from an opposite Bide or even a different angle, that is the reason whycharity is emphasized. Charity would end all war. It would enable those of opposing views to work together in har mony, for they would realize that they simply possessed opposite sides of the same great fact. ine puDllC aeinanu uini uie ttracuer and preacher be a sort of fountain of living waters, which he showers down upon the people. There is a tendency toward inactivity on the part of the ma jority and there are always those who are willing to work for money. Hence both education and religion are carried forward more by proxy than is for the benefit of the world. In former ages society imposed the death penalty upon those who would radically change the trend of human conduct. Facts of science, like the prevention of yellow fever, have cost the benefac tors of our race their lives. There is op position to change or progress in all the walks of life. Moses gave a good school boy’s account of the creation of the earth, which has been elaborated but not contradicted by modern science. Modern sociology learns many valuable lessons from the early domestic life of the Jews. Fairy stories of the ancients have ever illustrated in a child-like manner many of the fundamental truths of life. Mod ern government is doing a few things il lustrated in the Christ life, like healing the sick, feeding the hungry and teach ing the laws by which all things exist. The Bible tells us to consider the lily and learn a lesBon therefrom. Modern science teaches its lesson in the same way. If no one claimed more for the Bible than its due, it would take its place as the foundation of all literature. It is surely as worthy of study in our schools as Shakespeare though scenes of murder should be eradicated from all literature. Will society ever reach that standard? In the Bible as in science, we study man’s duty to bis fellow man, force of wordB in sentences,' paths of planets through space, and all the minute details of the behavior of bodies both great and small. The great movements of people like the Crusades are as truly Bible as any act of ancient Jew or apostle. Men spent their lives and fortunes without attaining that for which they sought, but they obtained incidentally something infinitely more valuable, viz, the amassing of human experience. Peo ple of today need not cross continents to — obtain the valuable experience of others. It ia more easy to see wherein our neigh bor excels in business affairs than it is in edi-cation and religion, because dol lars, the result of business, are more easily computed than character, the re sult of education and religion. Pestalozzi wrote some Bible when he said: "There is in the child an active power of faith and love, the two prin ciples by which under divine guidance, our nature is made to participate in the highest blessings that are in store for us." Caroline Faryl, commenting on the book from which the above is a good quo tation, says: “It need not have been put into English or any language into which the word of God has been trans lated, for it belies it utterly.” Those who view Pestalozzi’s teaching as out of harmony with the Bible have in mind some human interpretation rather than the words of Christ, where he says, "Suffer little children to come unto me and forbid them not, for of such is the Kingdom of heaven.” The Bible story of how Eve was made from a rib taken out of Adam is doubtless true, but the modern name of that rib is germ cell. The material for our redemption flowed from the side of Christ, the son of God, just as naturally aB Eve was de veloped from the original rib or germ cell. The side of the great Christ spirit is today accessible to all, not because he hanged upon the cross, but Decause he walked and talked among men, and we today have the record of his teachings. The story of the creation of Eve is the embryo of modern physiology. The Bible as a whole is the embryo of mod ern science, which is a Bible in process of development. ine above wag printed in a local paper last year ami a few days later in the columns of the same paper one of the bretheren of the stereotyped faith cen sured it as a slam at Martin Luther, a jab at Paul, a scoffing at the disciples, giving the lie to the story ot Adam and Eve, and he alludes to science as the devil’s Bible. We have a host of such men today, who with the best of intentions are real ly a greater hindrance to true progress than the rumsei er. They are found among the most gifted preachers who denounce Unitarianism as darkest hell, \ Christian Science as the devil in kid gloves, and evolution as the invention of satan. With the majority of our preachers of that type there is little wonder that only 5 per cent of the people on the Pacific coast belong to churches. As a matter of fact Unitarianism has existed since thje dawning of the Christian era, only it failed to get the support of the Roman Emperor, hence the true interprets* ion of Christianity fell into disrepute. Chris tian Science appears before the world every Sunday with fine selections from the Bible, together with Mrs. Eddy’s explanation of the same as arranged by some leader of the church. Mrs. Eddy’s writings are so extensive that any man would be able to compile a good Sunday Bervice from her writings and the Bible. The only just criticism that can be brought against Christian Science could also Se brought against its critics, and that is that, the man who prepares the service gets a greater benefit than those who listen, for the Bible says “Be ye doers and not hearers only.” Evolution, so often censured by those who know nothing of it, is the fundamental princi ple of science and religion.

As far as I can understand the present situa tion, a state of war exists between the United States of America, and Germany. It is highly probable that we in Belfast will never hear the report of the cannon of the Kaiser, the reason advanced for this statement being the fact that Ger many is quite busy at present at home. There is a very remote possibility of a German raider getting lost in the fog and making the port of Belfast between two days, also it is possible that at some time, a lUboat might periscope her way around Islesboro and take a sail ud the bay, I have heard that U-boats, and raiders carry guns, and in case they got to using those guns some of our shade trees might get damaged. Of course our cruisers, and coast pa trol would get here on the double quick, and rout the enemy, but some little time would elapse before the arrival of the Naval policemen on the scene. I should think it would be a very ex cellent idea if we had a nice little three inch rifle to convey to the possible visitor from over the waters a proper American greeting. I wonder if there isn’t some way we can procure at least one little field gun for the defence of Belfast. If our ships had carried even one small gun, three-fourthB cf them would have out Blugged the submarines. Even though there is very little danger of our needing that gun, I don’t like to thiak of Belfast being unprotected. This may be a while lot of senseless, "supposing”; but then again, it may net be.

With the finan cial backing of the American Smelting & Refining Co., which means the Guggen heim interests, the Bluehill copper mines of this town, ihe most valuable mining properly in Maine, long idle for lack of monetary support, are about to be re opened and operated upon a most ex tensive scale. In fact, the work has already started and within a period of four months at the outside it is promised that hundreds of men will be given em ployment there. Already large sums have been expend ed for lumber and other materials and supplies. This activity will mean a great deal to eastern Maine, especially, but to the whole State, as well, as it ensures permanent work for many years to eome. Until recently the property was owned by John S. Morris, he having purchased the interests of his partner, Major George M. Irwin of New York. Mr. Morris has disposed of the bulk of his holdings, but retains a block of stock which will make him a partner in the new concern. Work would have been starte I some months ago had it not been for delays in the de livery of equipment, That, however, has been eliminated and the concentrat ing plant and mine machinery are on iheir way. Inside of four months all the equipment will have been installed and in operation and products will have been shipped to the smelter. For a year and a half Mr. Morris has been engaged with some of the most noted mining engineers, metallurgical experts, in the examination of the sur face and inside of the shafts. In the 238 acres which the mining property covers, these experts concede that there are mil lions of tons of ore and that it will take years to exhaust the supply. Then, to ;, the new interests start by having on the surface at the o!d Douglass shaft more than 20,01)0 tons of ore, promising a pro fit of $100,000 in copper alone, and this figured on the basis of 15 cents, which would mean more than double that, at present prices. ine oiu Ltougiass shatt, now 375 te» t in depth, will be used ar first and will be sunk to a depth of 1000 feet, opening up two or more levels. In addition to the copper contained in this ore, there has been found other pre cious metals, goid and silver having a profitable working value. These ores also carry 28 per cent, sulphur, which also has a value, although in the past it was a costly e ement that had to be elim inated before smeiting. There will be no smelting plant at Bluehill, and all ores are to be concen trated and shipped to rhe company’s great, smelting plant in Perth Amboy, N. J Mr. Morris had been more or less iden tified with thesf properties since their discovery in 1878, but nor until 1904 did he become an outright owner with others.
