course Dr. Talmage recites some great
events and shows that the world is ad
vancing In the right direction; text.
Joel ii., 30, "I will show wonders in the
heavens and in the earth."
There were more far-reaching events
crowded Into the nineteenth century
than into any other, and the last 20
years eclipse any preceding 20. We
read in the daily newspapers of events
announced in one paragraph and with
out any special emphasis events
which a Herodotus, a Josephus, a Xen
ophon, a Gibbon would have taken
whole chapters or whole volumes to
elaborate. Looking out upon our time
we must cry out, in the words of the
text, "Wonders In the heavens and in
the earth."
I propose to show you that the time
in which we live is wonderful for dis
aster and wonderful for blessing, for
there must be lights and shades in this
picture as in all others. Need I argue
that our time is wonderful for disas
ter? Our world has had a rough time
since by the hand of God it was bowled
out Into space. It Is an epileptic earth
convulsion after convulsion; frost
pounding it with sledge hammer of ice
berg and fires melting it with furnaces
seven times heated. It is a wonder to
me it has lasted so long. Meteors
shooting by on this side and grazing it
and meteors shooting by on the other
side and grazing it, none of them slow
ing up for safety. Whole fleets and
navies and argosies and flotillas of
worlds sweeping all about us. Our
earth like a fishing smack off the
banks of Newfoundland, while the Ma
jestic and the St. Paul and the Kaiser
Wllhelm der Grosse rush by. Besides
that, our world has by sin been dam
aged in its internal machinery, and
ever and anon the furnaces have burst,
and the walking beams of the moun
tains have broken, and the islands
have shipped a sea, and the great bulk
of the world has been Jarred with acci
dents that ever and anon threatened
immediate demolition.
But it seems to us as if the last hun
dred years were especially character
ized by disaster volcanic, oceanic,
epidemic. Seven thousand earthquakes
In two centuries recorded in the cata
logue of the British association! Tra
jan, the emperor, goes to ancient Antl
och and amid the splendors of his re
ception is met by an earthquake that
"nearly destroys the emperor's life. Lis
bon, fair and beautiful, at 1 o'clock on
the 1st of November, 1775, in six min
utes 60,000 have perished, Kurope and
America feeling the throb 1,500 chim
neys in Boston partly or fully de
stroyed! But the disasters of other times have
had their counterpart in later times. In
1812 Caracas was caught in the grip of
an earthquake. In 1882 in Chile 100,000
square miles of land by volcanic force
upheaved to four and seven feet of per
manent elevation, in 1854 Japan felt
the geological, agony; Naples shaken
in 1857, Mexico In 1858; Mendoza, the
capital of the Argentine Republic, in
1861; Manila terrorized in 1863; the
Hawaiian Islands by such force up
lifted and let down in 1871; Nevada
shaken In 1871, Antioch in 1872, Cali
fornia in 1872, San Salvador in 1873,
while in 1883 what subterranean ex
citement ! Ischla, an island of the
Mediterranean, a beautiful Italian wat-.
ering place, vineyard clad, surrounded
by all natural charm and historical
reminiscence; yonder Capri, the sum
mer resort of the Roman emperors;
yonder Naples, the paradise of art
this beautiful Island suddenly toppled
Into the trough of the earth, 8,000 mer
rymakers perishing, and some of them
so far down beneath the reach of hu
man obsequies that it may be said of
many of them, as it was said of Moses,
"The Lord buried him." Italy, all Eu
rope weeping, all Christendom weep
ing, where there were hearts to sym
pathize and Christians to pray. But
while the nations were measuring that
magnitude of disaster, measuring it not
with golden rod like that with which
the angel measured heaven, but with
the black rule of death, Java of the In
dian archipelago, the most fertile is
land of all the earth, is caught in the
grip of the earthquake, and mountain
after mountain goes down and city
after city until that Island, which pro
duces the best beverage of all the
world, produced the ghastliest catas
trophe. One hundred thousand people
dying, dead!
But look at the disasters cyclonic.
Cyclone in Kansas, cyclone in Missouri,
cyclone in Wisconsin, cyclone In Illi
nois, cyclone In Iowa! Satan, prince of
the power of the air, never made such
cyclonic disturbances as he has in our
day. And am I not right In saying
.that one of the characteristics of the
time in which we live is disaster cy-ciouic?
But look at the disasters oceanic!
Shall I call the roll of the dead ship
ping? It is as long as the white scroll
of the Atlantic surf at Cape Hatteras
breakers. If the oceanic cables could
report all the scattered life and all the
bleached bones that they rub against in
the ocean, what a message of pathos
and tragedy for both beaches! In one
storm eighty fishermen perished off the
coast of Newfoundland and whole fleets
of them off the coast of England. God
help the poor fellows at sea and give
high seats in heaven to the Grace Dar
lings and the Ida Lewises and the life
boat men hovering around Goodwin
sands and the Skerries! The sea, own
ing three-fourths of the earth, proposes
to capture the other fourth and is bom
barding the land all around the earth.
The moving of the hotels at Brighton
Beach backward 100 yards from where
they once stood a type of what is go
ing on all around the world and on
every coast. The Dead sea rolls today
where ancient cities stood. Pillars of
temples that stood on hills geologists
now find three-quarters under the
water or altogether submerged. The
sea, having wrecked so many mer
chantmen and flotillas, wants to wreck
the continents, and hence disasters
oceanic. Alas for Galveston and other
cities almost drowned!
But now I turn the leaf in my sub
ject, and I plant the white lilies and
tne palm tree amid the night shades
and the myrtle. This age no more
characterized by wonders of disaster
than by wonders of blessing blessing
of longevity; the average of human life
rapidly increasing. The average of hu
man life practically greater now than
when Noah lived, with his 950 years,
and Methusaleh lived his 969 years.
Blessings of intelligence! If the phil
osophers of a hundred years ago were
called up to recite in a class with onr
boys and girls, those old philosophers
would be sent down to the foot of the
class because they failed to answer the
questions! Free libraries in all the.
important towns and circles of the
land. Historical alcoves and poetical
shelves and magazine tables for all
who desire to walk througn them or
sit down at them.
Blessings of quick . information!
Newspapers falling all around us thick
as leaves in a September equinoctial.
We see the whole world twice a day
through the newspaper at the break
fast table and through the newspaper
at the tea table.
Blessings of gospel proclamation!
While infidelity is dwindling the
wheel of Christianity is making about
a thousand revolutions in a minute. A
few years ago in six weeks more than
2,000,000 copies of the New Testament
purchased not given away, but pur
chased because the world will have it.
The most popular book today is the
Bible, and the mightiest institution is
the church, and the greatest name
among the nations and more honored
than any is the name of Jesus.
Wonders of self-sacrifice! All for
Christ! Where is there any other be
ing that will rally such enthusiasm?
Millions of good men and women, but
more women than men, to whom
Christ is everything. Christ, first and
Christ last and Christ forever.
Why, this age is not so characterized
by invention and scientific exploration
as it is by gospel proclamation. You
can get no idea of it unless you can
ring all the church bells in one chime
and sound all the organs in one diapa
son and gather all the congregations of
Christendom in one "Gloria In Excel
sis." Mighty camp meetings! Mighty
Ocean Groves! Mighty Chautauquas!
Mighty conventions of Christian work
ers! Mighty general assemblies of the
Presbyterian church! Mighty confer
ences of the Methodist church ! Mighty
associations of the Baptist church!
Mighty conventions of the Epis
copal church! There may be many
years of hard work yet before the con
summation, but the signs are to me so
encouraging that I would not be unbe
lieving if I saw the wing of the apoca
lyptic angel spread for its last tri
umphal flight in this day's sunset or if
tomorrow morning the ocean cables
should thrill us with the news that
Christ the Lord had alighted on Mount
Olivet to proclaim universal dominion.
All dead churches, wake up! Throw
back the shutters of stiff ecclesiasti
cism and let the light of the spring
morning come in! Morning for the
land! Morning for the sea! . Morning
of light and love and peace! Morning
of a day in which there - shall be no
chains to break, no sorrows to as
suage, no despotism to shatter, no
woes to compassionate.
These things I say because I want
you to be alert. I want you to be
watching all these wonders unrolling
from the heavens and the earth. God
has classified them, whether calamitous
or pleasing. The divine purposes are
harnessed in traces that cannot break
and in girths that cannot slip and in
buckles that cannot loosen and are
driven by reins they must answer. ,
So I rejoice day by day. Work for
all to do, and we may turn the crank
of the Christian machinery this way or
that, for we are free agents. But there
is the tracks laid so long ago no one
remembers it laid by the hand of the
Almighty God in sockets thai no ter
restrial or satanic pressure can ever
affect. And along the track the car of
the world's redemption will roll and
roll to the Grand Central depot of the
millennium. I have no anxiety about
the track. I am only afraid that for
our indolence and unfaithfulness God
will discharge us and get some other
stoker and some other engineer. The
train Is going through with us or with
out us. So, my brethren, watch all the
events that are going by. If things
seem to turn out right, give wings to
your joy. If things seem to turn out
wrong, throw out the anchor of faith
and hold fast.
There is a. house In London where
Peter the Great of Russia lived awhile
when he was moving through the land
incognito and in workman's dress that
he might learn ship carpentry, by
which he could supply the needs of his
people. A stranger was visiting at that
house. "What's in that box?" The
owner said: "I don't know. That box
was there when I got the house, and
it was there when my father got it.
We haven't had any curiosity to look
at it. I guess there's nothing in it."
" Well," said the stranger, "I'll give
you 2 for it." "Well, done." The
2 was paid, and the contents of that
box were sold to the Czar of Russia for
$50,000. In it the lathing machine of
Peter the Great, his private letters and
documents of value beyond all mone
tary consideration. And here are the
events that seem very insignificant and
unimportant, but they incase treasures
of Divine Providence and eternities of
meaning which after awhile God will
demonstrate before the ages as being
of stupendous value.
When Titans play quoits, they pitch
mountains, but who owns these gigan
tic natural forces we are constantly
reading about? Whose hand is on the
throttle valve of the volcanoes? Whose
foot, suddenly planted on the footstool,
makes the continents quiver? God! I
must be at peace with him. Through
the Lord Jesus Christ, this God is mine
and he is yours. I put the earthquake
that shook Palestine at the crucifixion
against all the down rockings of the
centuries. This God on one side, we
may challenge all the centuries of time
and all the cycles of eternity.
Those of you who are In midlife may
well thank God that you have seen so
many wondrous things, but there are
people alive today who may live to see
the shimmering veil between the ma
terial and the spiritual world uplifted.
Magnetism, a word with which we
cover up our ignorance, will yet be an
explored realm. Electricity, the fiery
courser of the sky, that Benjamin
Franklin lassoed and Morse and Bell
and Edison have brought under com
plete control, has greater wonders to
reveal. Whether here or departed this
life, we will see these things. It does
not make much difference where we
stand, but the higher the standpoint,
the larger the prospect. We will see
them from heaven if we do not see
them from earth.
Tears ago I was at Fire Island, Long
Island, and I went up in the cupola
from which they telegraph to New
York the approach of vessels hours be
fore they come into port. There is an
opening in the wall, and the operator
puts his telescope through that open
ing and looks out and sees vessels far
out at sea. While I was talking with
him he went up and looked out. He
said. "We are expecting the ' Arizona
tonight.'' I said, "Is it possible you
know all those vessels? Do you know
them as you know a man's face?" He
Bald, "Yes. I never make a mistake.
Before I see the hulls I often know
them by the masts. I know them all
I have watched them so long." Oh,
what a grand thing it is to have ships
telegraphed and heralded long before
they come to port, that friends may
come down to the wharf and welcome
their long absent ones! So today we
take our stand in the watch-tower, and
through the " glass of inspiration we
look off and see a whole fleet of ships
coming in. That is the ship of peace,
with one star of Bethlehem floating
above the top gallants. That is the
ship of the church, mark of salt water
high upon the smokestack, showing she
has had rough weather, but the captain
of Salvation commands her, and all is
well with her. The ship of heaven,
mightiest craft ever launched, millions
of passengers waiting for millions
more, prophets and apostles and mar
tyrs in the cabin, conquerors at the
foot of the mast, while from the rig
ging hands are waving this way as If
they knew us, and we wave back again,
for they are ours. They went out from
our own households. Ours! Hail, hall!
Put off the black and put on the white.
Stop tolling the funeral bell and ring
the wedding anthem. Shut up the
hearse and take the chariot.
Now the ship comes around the great
headland. Soon she will strike the
wharf, and we will go aboard her.
Tears for ships going out. Laughter for
ships coming in. Now she touches
the wharf. - Throw out the plank.
Block not tip that gangway with em
bracing long lost friends, for yon will
have eternity of reunion. Stand back
and give way until other millions com
aboard her. Farewell to sin! Fare
well to struggle! Farewell to sickness I
Farewell to death! "Blessed are all
they who enter in through the gates
Into the city."

."Keeping- Tah."
(From the Farmers" Review.)
One of the most successful farmers
It was ever the good fortune of the
writer to become acquainted with was
considered a "crank" and much too
book learned by his neighbors for the
simple reason that he carried on his
large farming business in a perfectly
business-like way. To be sure, he did
carry things to an extreme In some re
spects, as, for instance, the opening
of a complete double-entry ledger ac
count with each field upon his large
farm. In this he would charge against
the field each load of manure hauled
upon it and also the expense for work
of man and team and similarly record
every penny of expense on one side
and against it the gains of the field not
only in actual crops grown and sold,
but In accrued gain of fertilizing mat
ter held over from one crop to the
next and of new manure produced
from the waste products of the field.
Such a man would be generally ex
pected to fail on the basis of the old
idea that "he who stops to count the
cost will ne'er put hand to plow." This
Idea of not counting the cost is absurd
and erroneous; it is behind the times
and misleading, however trite- and ap
parently wise it may look to the
thoughtless who do not want to bother
with figures. We need to count the
cost nowadays. We need to follow the
example of this man who kept such
an elaborate set of books, in principle
at least If not in fact. We need to
"keep tab" of every operation of the
farm, and nowhere is this more neces
sary than upon the farm where a herd
of swine Is kept. Annually there is
great loss of pigs and consequently of
profit by failing to keep tab of the date
of service of each sow. A ledger account
should be opened with each pedigreed
sow, at least, even if the fields are
not so dealt with. On one side of this
account should be set down the cost
price of the sow and all expenses in
cluded in purchase, etc . Here, too, a
record should be kept "of her time of
service and opposite it In good sea
son the returns from that service in
number of pigs and later on the re
turns from the sale of those pigs. By
so doing it Is possible to detect at a
glance how a sow Is breeding and pay
ing for her board and at the same time
to decide which sow is the most profit
able In amounts obtained for products,
which indicate, unless pedigreed, the
weight of the hogs sold from her and
the price obtained for those products.
It will also appear whether she is a shy
or steady breeder. In a large herd such
facts are soon lost sight of unless
some such record Is kept, and without
it sows are liable to bring forth their
pigs when not expected and in places
where many succumb to the rigors of
inclement weather or the attacks of
other swine. By the keeping of a
record the pedigrees of swine are
easily kept track of, for it is always
better to know just where facts are to
. be found in writing than ' to attempt
1 to record them merelv In the mind? a
1 great knowledge of science is impos
sible unless a man can remember just
where to lay hands on a book in his
library which contains the facts he re
quires to consult. But there Is anoth
er fine point to be mentioned in this
matter of keeping tab. It does not so
much concern the figures of profits as
I the record of results in product of
' ptrk or weight at selling time, and
after all that is but another form of
dollars and cents. We refer to the
keeping of what may be termed the
"experiment record." Here should be
set down each week or month a cor
rect account of the feeding operations
going on at the time. Each lot of hogs
should be weighed and close track kept
of the amount and kind of food con
sumed by each. The work should be
patterned after that so well done at
every one of the agricultural experi
ment stations throughout the country
and will show at the end of the year
or feeding period exactly how a lot of
hogs have been fed, what gains have
been made from the feeding and what
profits have been made from the sale of
the products. If every hog raiser were
to keep tab in this way of at least a
"check lot" of feeding hogs he would
have a safe guide to follow yearly,
and by changing his methods and
again keeping tab would be able in
time to tell exactly for his special lo
cation and circumstances the method
of feeding which was the most profit
able. The principle of keeping tab is
what we desire to urge in this short
article. It cannot be fully elaborated
here; what we have said may be suf
ficient to set the hog man thinking,
and that Is the main object of this
column of the paper.
Roosters Crow for Prisesw
Roosters that crow for prizes are
familiar sights to the residents of
various sections of Belgium, notably
the Liese district. The Belgian arti
san in his leisure moments breeds a
special cock for crowing, and that
which can outcrow his fellows has
reached the highest pinnacle of per
fection. The plan adopted is to place
the cages containing the roosters in a
iong row. for it appears that proximity
creates that spirit of emulation with
out which the proceedings would fall
flat. A marker appointed by the or
ganizers of the show is told off for
each bird, his duty being to note care
fully the number of crows for which
it is reponsible, in the same fashion
as the laps are recorded in a bicycle
race. The customary duration of the
match is one hour, the winner being
the cock which scores the ' highest
number of points in the allotted time.
Some Wheat.
Joseph, son of Jacob, had to ware
house a good deal -of wheat in the
seven fat years to carry the Egyptians
through the seven lean ones. The
American farmers produced enough in
1898 to make Joseph's little stock look
like a pea in a tub. If it had all been
piled in form on the plain of Gizeh it
would have made nine pyramids the
size of the pyramide of Cheops, and
with the surplus another could have
been reared four-fifths as large. That
was the biggest American wheat crop
ever recorded. It amounted to 675,148,
705 bushels, grown on 44,045,278 acres
of land, says Ainsley's Magazine. Next
year the yield was lighter and the
Americans only turned off seven and
nine-tenths pyramids of wheat. In
1900 they even fell short of that, pro
ducing only a paltry seven and a half
pyramids. Still, that would have been
a comfortable addition to Joseph's
stock, and considering that it was
grown on a smaller acreage than the
crop of 1899 was a rather creditable
performance. The deficiency was made
up with a two-billion bushel corn
crop, and 210,000,000 bushels of pota
toes. . -
JL Matter of FJdneetton. " T
At the Iowa dairy convention a
member of Congress made the sugges
tion that the dairymen should educate
the labor unions and the cattle pro
ducers as to the real facts in the case
of oleomargarine The suggestion is
a good one. There is strong reason to
believe that both classes axe laboring
under a misapprehension In the mat
ter. Certain it is that laborers In the
city are at present against the dairy
men. One laborer said to the writer:
"The dairymen wish to prevent the
manufacture of oleomargarine so we
will have to pay them at least 35 cents
a pound for butter the year around."
The argument is a strong one and very
effective In keeping the city laborers
on the side of oleo. Let the dairymen
send a few missionaries among the la
borers to prove two things: That but
ter will not sell at an exorbitant price
if oleo Is not colored, and that they are
now buying oleo at butter prices and
not at oleo prices. The cattle men
should be made to understand that
they are not getting "$4 per head
more" on account of oleo being colored
to resemble butter.
The Question of Protein.
Professor Haecker of the Minnesota
experiment station shows a decided
inclination to set aside as worthless
all that has been taught as to the
make-up of feeds for dairy cows. Real
ly, the professor does not greatly dis
agree with the teachings of the so
called feeding tables, he claiming that
the amount of protein required In a
ration Is only 60 per cent of the
amount as hitherto specified. . But
those people that do not carefully fol
low the figures as set forth by him will
most certainly report Professor Haeck
er as declaring that protein is unnec
essary In a ration. This will be un
fortunate. The present estimates of
proportion of protein needed are the
result of the investigations by many
scientists. Who shall judge between
them and Professor Haecker? Are the
many wrong and the one light, or are
the many right and the one wrong?
Up to the present time the preponder
ance of testimony Is not with Profess
or Haecker.
A Swan Sons-
A doting East End papa has a new
story to tell about his little girl. Ac
cording to his tale, the child, with her
mother, was walking through Wade
Park when she saw a number of swans
In the pond. "What are those,' mam
ma?" inquired the little girl. "Those?
Why, they are swans," was the reply.
A silence of more than a minute fol
lowed the reply, when the little girl
again broke out. "If those are swans,
mamma." said she, "this must be the
Swanre River that papa sings about so
The Incomprehensible.
"Brown doesn't spell correctly."
"Yes." "Is fearfully absent-minded."
"Quite true." "No business ability."
"None at all." "Writes an unreadable
hand." "True again." "And X don't
know what to make of him!" "My
dear friend, what on earth can you ex
pect of a great genius?" Atlanta Con
stitution. Tobacco cultivation and manufac
turing in the Atlantic states are great
ly hampered for want of workers.
elrr Notoa
An original scheme to get a big at
tendance at a dairymen's convention
was tried at Palmyra. Missouri. Those
people that attended the convention
from points other than Palmvra were
very much surprised at the large local
attendance. Men, women and children
seemed to take an extraordinary Inter
est in dairying, as shown by their
presence In the assembly room and the
overflow into the corridors. On Friday
one of the potent causes for the large
attendance came to light in the award
ing to a 10-year-old boy outside of the
hall of a Jersey calf. A local dairy
man had offered the calf as a premium
to the boy under 15 years of age who
would secure the most names of people
that would agree to be present at the
dairymen's convention at least once.
Four boys entered the contest. The
prize was won by Elmer Young, who
secured over 1,300 names.

"Buff Jersey" uses the stave silo,
and likes . it. He covers the staves
with coal tar, doing this work before
the staves are set up. His method of
coating the staves is to lay them down
side by side and go over them with a
broom dipped in tar. When the staves
have dried on one side he turns them
over and treats the other sides in the
same way. The edges are treated the
same as the sides. He says that pre
vious to this summer he never has
been fortunate enough to have silage
for summer use, and that there was
never a time when he needed it more.
He found it to be superior to grass for
the production of milk, and even on
grass at its best he fed the cows a
ration of silage.
' e e e
At the Missouri dairymen's conven
tion the questions of pasturing and
soiling were incidentally discussed. It
is evident that both systems are good,
the one to be adopted in any locality
depending on the particular conditions
existing there. Some of the Missouri
farmers say that pasturage is cheaper
for them than to soil; and probably
they are right. Buff Jersey, living on
high-priced land in Illinois, says that
he cannot afford to devote land to pas
ture purposes, but finds soiling more
profitable; and he is right. The value
of land has much to do with the solu
tion of the problem.
Chicken Kotes.
In cold weather keep your eyes open
and the cracks in the hen house closed.
Too many chickens in one flock af
ford a favorable field for disease.
Give the moulting hens plenty of
oats with sharp grit.
Have your poultry house so well
made that artificial heat is not needed.
During the summer and fall it is
well to look ahead and provide a sup
ply of vegetables for the poultry dur
ing the winter. Onions are a tonic for
the fowls. Sugar beets are fine, so are
carrots, mangoes, rutabagas and other
vegetables. Cabbage is always appre
ciated, and the chickens will not fuss
if the heads are not all sound. They
will eat melons, pumpkins and squash,
and jump all day at a sunflower hung
just above their heads on the wall.
To pick ducks, place an inch of wa
ter in a large tin vessel over a hot
fire. Lay two small sticks of wood
two inches high in the vessel. When,
the water boils place the fowl on the
sticks, cover, and steam two minutes.
Both feathers and down will come off
easily and without the least injury
from the steam.
Pries of Milk to the r.rm'n
In the creamery business there Is.
nothing of greater importance than
the price the farmer is to receive for
his milk. Instead of trying to pay as
little as possible for milk, the cream
ery managers should try to pay as
much as possible. It is essential that
the farmer make money out of the
creamery business, else he will lose
enthusiasm in the business . of milk
producing. A good price for his milk
stimulates the farmer to produce mora
milk, which in turn increases the
profits of the creamery, as no increase
of investment is required to enable it
to handle the larger amount of milk. '
When a farmer gets dissatisfied with
the price he is receiving for milk he
goes to disposing of it in some other
way or gives np entirely the produc
tion of milk.
Success In Swine Kalslns
- Any man that expects to succeed in
the business of hog raising must have
a good foundation on which to start.
The man that builds a house on a poor
foundation is sure to have abundant
cause to regret it in the years to come.
The same is true of the man that tries
to bnild np a hog-raising industry on
anything but a firm foundation. Good
