There are few farmers who can af
ford to be without a plantation of
forest trees in some form or other; a
grove, a windbreak or ornamental
No man whose homestead is bar
ren of trees knows the privacy and
comfort of a secluded home. In sum
mer, life is confined to the swelter
ing house, instead of overflowing into
the quiet shade of a well protected
lawn; in winter, the unbroken sweep
of the wind across the treeless prairie
destroys the comfort of the house
and makes a trip to the barn some
thing to be dreaded. It further cuts
off his children from a knowledge of
that phase of nature which thrives in
the well planted yard, but is impossi
ble in a barren stretch of prairie.
That may seein insignificant; but the
borne surroundings of a child mean
much in his future life. The home
«houid be made attractive in every
possible way, and no way is more ef
fective than the prbper grouping of
frees and shrubs.
Nor do the benefits of such planta
tions end with the aesthetic effect
ssnd the added comforts of life. It is
possible to put them In useful form.
The windbreak Is of definite value to
the protected crops. Bxact measure
ments are now being made of this
benefit; and, when the results are
published, many a present doubter
will be protecting every field In this
way. The Importance of the wood
lot Is also on the Increase. With the
Increasing prices of lumber, the la
bor and care put into its management
will be well paid by the production
of saw logs, as well as of fuel and re
pair stock. Nor Is the day far dis
tant when the supply of cedar fence
posts will be a thing of the past, and
the wood lot will furnish the posts
"weeded on the farm.
If you are planning to do any tree
planting the following list may aid in
the selection of species;
For Windbreaks—Deciduous: White
or Golden Willow. Carolina or Norway
Poplar. Evergreen; Black Hills or
Norway Spruce, Balsam. Red Fedor.
For Groves—Deciduous: Red Oak,
Kim. Green Ash, Black l.ecnst. Reck
Kim. Soft Maple. White Willow. Nor
way Poplar. Evergreen: White Pine.
Jack Pine, Norway Spruce
For Ornamental Planting- Deeid' 1 -
ous: White Elm. Ilackhorrv. Bit"-'
wood. Hurd Maple, White Oak, Mo'tn
tain Ash. European Bird) Evergreen:
Norway Spruce, White Pine. Colorai! >
Blue Spruce, Balsam, Red Cedar
There are many others which
might he added, but mi ' ht not sue
«seed. Those in the list are hardy
and should be certain. Do not for
get. no matter what the nature of the
planting, that trees, like everything
«Ise, do better when cultivated. Heave
room for the plow; and when you
bave the room use it.

4 Probably the Best Substitute 4
+ for Hay for All Classes of 4
4 Animals.

Probably the most satisfactory sub
stitute for the hay crop is fodder-corn.
Barge yields can be obtained, all
classes ot animals relish the feed
greatly, and it can be fed without
danger and with excellent results. As
a catch crop, it fits in well in the dis
tribution of the farmer's tijne and can
be planted and harvested when other
duties are not pressing. It may be
sown at any time from May 15 to July
1 with reasonable assurance of getting
a satisfactory return. From the fact
that it can be sown so late, the other
farm work may be done, and manure
hauled on the land before plowing..
Hand so treated should be plowed six
or seven inches deep, where the na
ture of the soil will allow, the field
harrowed and the corn sown in drills
forty-two inches apart. The most re
cent practice is to sow In single drills,
using thirty to forty pounds of seed
per acre. The ordinary Dent corns,
which mature for grain in the vicinity,
will be the most satisfactory to use
for this purpose. With forty pounds
of seed per acre, the corn plants will
grow from two to three inches apart
in the row. ThlB is so thick that
large ears will not form, and the
stalks will be fine and leafy. The
seed may be sown either with a horse
corn planter, arranged for drilling, or
with an ordinary shoe or disk drill. In
which the seed cups are large enough
to turn out the kernels of corn without
cracking. Many other ways may be
invented for sowing the crop, but
these two are the most common in
practice. After planting, the land
may be harrowed once or twice, as
need determines, and should be culti
vated until the corn Is big enough to
shade the ground.
Use of Arsenate of Lead Beneficial in
the Spring.
If. for any reason, the lime-sulphur
w ■ h was not applied to the trees
during the dormant season, spraying
with arsenate of lead for the plum
ciirculio i'ipt as tile buds are swell
ing should '.ot lie neglected At this
lime also a disease like the shothole
fungus of plums and cherries can lie
• becked 'e the use of self-boiled lime
sulphur er Mio Bordeaux mixture. For
tins sper m"., ihorefore, a combina
tion of I'- ee pounds of arsenate of
lead and ''fly calkins of the self-boiled
lime-sulphur is recommended, or. if
preferred, throe pounds of arsenate
ot lead may tie used in fifty gallons of
Bordeaux mixture.
The following is a simple formula
for making Bordeaux mixture for use
at this time;
Dissolve four pounds of copper sul
phate (blue vitriol) in twenty-five gal
Ions of water (the crystals are read
ilv dissolved by being suspended in a
burlap sack near the surface of the
water) Slake four pounds of the best
stone lime and after it is thoroughly
staked dilute with water to twenty-five
gallons Now. pour at the same time
the two solutions, the copper sulphate
and the lime through a strainer into
the spray barrel The resulting ma
terial is Bordeaux mixture, and
the 4-4-50 formula.
Makes a Dandy Knife.
Do your folks need a good butcher
knife? Hunt up an old flat file and
take It to a blacksmith who under
stands tempering steel and have him
make yon one. It will outlast any
knife you ever had if made right.

Genesis 42—May 18.
"Whatsoever u man soireth. Hint shall he also
reap." - Galatians 6:7.
C UE story of Joseph find his
brethren continues. Today's
lesson Illustrates bow the re
membrance of their cruelty
toward their brother Joseph harassed
the evil-doers long years after. Our
Golden Text seems to lay down a prin
ciple. Whatsoever any I tody sows in
telligently will tiring a harvest of sim
ilar kind.
The famine-stricken region included
Palestine. Word spread that there
was no lack of food in Egypt, and that
corn of the old stock was sold there at
moderate prices. Jacob directed his
sons, men of families, to go dowu to
Egypt and purchase wheat.
As strangers, they were directed to
Joseph. Through an interpreter, he
inquired whether they were spies, com
ing to see how much corn there wus
in Egypt, that they might bring an
army to steul it
They explained
truthfully. Joseph
then inquired
about Jacob and
Benjamin. Final
ly he put Simeon
into prison, nnd
sent the others
home with corn,
telling them tbut
they would need
more and might
have It provided
that they brought
their youngest brother with them.
The guilty consciences of the breth
ren connected these experiences with
their own wrong course in the past.
They said to one another. "We are
verily guilty concerning our brother,
when we saw the anguish of his soul,
when lie liesought us and we would
not hear: therefore is this distruss
come upon us." They knew not that
Joseph understood them, but he with
drew and wept. His heart was not
hard. He was merely giving them a
profitable lesson.
Many Stripes and Few Stripes.
When Jacob's sons arrived with the
wheat, they told their experience to
tlieir father. Moreover, they were per
plexed to find that the money paid for
the wheat was returned in each sack.
Their minds continually reverted to
the crime of years ago. Many times
had they reaped crops of sorrow and
surmising» respecting whnt God might
not exact from them in the nature of
trouble, similar to what they had
brought upon Joseph.
How adventageoUR it would be if this
principle were generally recognized—
that every trespass must receive a Just
recompense of reward! We hnve lost
such an appreciation of justice and
such a looking for retribution because
of a very false doctrine which pre
vails. That false doctrine ascribes
only one punishment for every sin. and
that an unthinkable one—eternal tor
ment. Few really believe that doc
trine or are really Influenced by it
Its monstrosity makes It unbelievable,
and tnrns the mind aside from the
proper view of the punishments which
God has foretold.
Humanity cannot improve upon the
Divine arrangement Hence all Chris
tians should begin afresh to tell the
world of both the Justice nnd the Love
of God—that God's penalty against slu
is death. ,>ut that He has provided
through Christ for release from that
penalty, during Christ's Millennial
reign. Then nil mankind will be grant
ed full opportunity of reconciliation
with God and of restoration to God's
image and llkenesa. lost by Adam's sin.
Jacob's Gray Hairs For Sheol.
When Jacob heard that Benjamin
must go on the next expedition for
wheat, he protested vigorously. Jo
seph was gone, and if now he should
lose Benjamin, the grief would bring
down his gray hairs to Sheol—the tomb
—the death state.
In the Common Version Bible Sheol
is repeatedly translated Hell. Pit and
! Grave. In olden times these three
{ words were synonymous. When t lie
! Revised Version was in preparation
| the learned men charged with that
work refused to translate Shoo! by the
word Hell, which lias lost its original
meaning and has come to mean a place
of torture. No
such meaning at
taches to the He
brew word Sheol.
So these scholars
decided to leave
Sheol and its
Greek equivalent
Hades untrans
Our Baptist
friends have re
cently met with a
similar difficulty,
and have trans
lated these words
as "the Under
world." Of course the grave, the tomb,
the death state, may he thus indicated,
and none can find fault.
It is needless to say that Jacob did
not menu his sons to understand that
he expected to go to eternal torment.
His meaning evidently is: "My sons. !
am old and gray. To lose my youngest
son would hasten my death—bring my
gray hairs down to Sheol—the tomb."
Our Golden Text Lesson.
Although St. Paul made a geueral ob
servation that we reap what we sow.
the context applies his words directly
to the Church. Consecration to lie dead
with Christ is not sufficient. God can
not be trifled with. If God has en
tered into a covenant with us. nothing
else than our agreement will stand.
'To lose fSeniamin trill
briny iiip tjrny hairs
doicn to Sheot."
