Commentary Prepared by Rev. D. M.
Tbe record of thc baptism le found tn

fully In Matthew. In Luke III, 23, ara
road that Jesus bedail to be about thir?

(Acta xxii. M. yet Nathanael said. "Can

dally life. As Ile came np out of tl ?
water sotnethlnic happened from the
skies the heavens were oi>ened, and
the Father testified. "Thou art My bc
loved Son, In whom I am well pleased "
At the same time the Spirit of God de
<i.lided la bodily shape like a dove
upon Ulm. The Father had told John
that lt would be so, and John bare rec
>rd that Ile was the Sun of Cod (Joh i
, SS, .T4>. The one who sent John also
teatlhad that the one on whom the
^i>lrit would descend and rema'n would
llmself baptize with the Holy Spirit
then what hinders us thus to be bap
ired? Luke tells us that Jesus was

Pungent Crop Pots Best After Beets,
Cauliflower or Early Cabbage.
A Wisconsin siibscrllK*r ol' American
Agriculturist asks for Information on
the m; (hists of raising and marketing
horse radish. A lt !o oiizli the horse rad?
ish is a perennial ami will continue to
grow indefinitely if some of the roots
are left in th.- ground, lt Is usually
treated us an annual wben raised iii
commercial tiardening. lt ls most prof
italde as n secoud crop, following beets,
caulillower or early cabbage. Only the
main root ls us.-d for market, the small
ro'tli-ls being broken otT ami preserved
for planting.
The upper part of encb set should be
cut straight ami the lower part slant?
ing so that they may lie planted right
t-ntl np. Of course, they will grow any?
how, hut tbey will make a Beete sntls
faetoi-y crop if planted properly. The
sets may be stored for tho. winter In a
cellar or in pits out of doors. It is a
good thing to sprinkle saud ln'twcen
them to prevent heating. While the
crowns of the plants may In* roset and
will grow, they do not produce ri very
satisfactory crop of roots tor market
anti will not pay for rephititing.
The sets ure planted between rows of
cabbage or c.iulillower in holes eight
or ten inches damp mode with a light
crowbar. They are covered two or
three lochee deep. If they are not. set
deeply they are likely to conn* up too
soon and interfere witb cultivating and
harvesting the tirst crop. Hy planting
one hill of horse radish opposite each
eabbngo plant from 12,000 to 13.0OU
plants per acre are grown. One culti?
vation is usually suflicieiit. lie-cause the
ground is already clean from the lirst
crop, anti horse radish leaves soou shade
the ground anti prevent weed growth.
Directions For Making One That la
Serviceable and Inexpensive.
Here is a gOOd plan for a self closing
gale, reproduced from the Orange Judd
farmer, from which cuts nml descrip?
tion ate taken. The upright piece at
tbe hinge end of the gate is made high?
er than the post it swings on. A cross
>ar is driven tightly through a hole Bl
?ight ang'.os With the gate. Make the
?rossini i- two feet long or over and rm:
vires 11om the ends ,,t' iii,, crossbar tn
i point two feet from the crossbar ainl
Ol'I in ne by a single wire for tun* foot.
A spit al spring from a mower or bimi
r Is here nil ached, ami a wire is eon
ii-cted with lins spring and run to th.
econd posi of the fence. This gatt
lill swing eitlier way ami lie piilleil
hut again. A latch made as described
ii tin* drawing will be a great help
aken piece ol' bani wood? oak or ma
ile?and saw as indicated at c. Tbb
holli.1 be s bv '_' bv ?_' and sawed so .
lould ls? one inch thicker than the thin
iris. Two pieces should be sawed like
just so the thin part of C will slide
isily through it. Then saw a, making
ie groove one and one-fourlb inches
ldc and its edges rounding so th.
tch will work easily and attach to thc
ncepost horizontally. A spiral spring
om a sha.le roller is attached, as
ii nv n in skt'lcli. This is inexpensive
it serviceable and works well if right
m nie.

hereafter comes out of the e

Orchard and Garden Notes.
Early cabbage, lettuce and cauliflow
are sown in thc north in hotbed.
y time from the lader part of ,I:itiu
jr to tbe 1st of March. Sowing early
February ls preferred hy most grow
i, although excellent results may bc
rured by later sowings If the fra moy

t usually lakes nearly n week to ge:
> manure ready for the pit. und froj
ir days lo ii week ls generally re
Ired for the temperature to drop In
> frame suflicleutly to make sowing
'e. Tbe reader will thus understand
it the manure for the hotbeds should
stacked about two weeks before he
ends to sow.
V'hlli- flats are not used by many
?deners tbere are strong points iu
.ir favor. It is more convenient to
r in flats in a warm, comfortable
m. carrying the flats to tbe hot beti
cold frame after sowing or planting
I perhaps watering, although water
Is more frequently attended to lo

Are You Nervous?
What makes you nervous? It is the weakness of your
womanly constitution, which cannot stand the strain of the
hard work you do. As a result, you break down, and ruin
your entire nervous system. Don't keep this up! Take
Cardui, the woman's tonic. Cardui is made from purely
vegetable ingredients. It acts gently on the womanly organs,
and helps them to do their proper work. It relieves pain
and restores health, in a natural manner, by going to the
source of the trouble and building up the bodily strength.
TAKE j^e
ARDUI Woman's Tonic
Mrs. Grace Fortner, of Man, W. Va., took Cardui.
This is what she says about it: "I was so weak and
nervous, I could not bear to have anyone near me. I had
fainting spells, and I lost flesh every day. The first dose
of Cardui helped me. Now, I am entirely cured of the
fainting spells, and I cannot say enough for Cardui, for I
know it saved my Hfe." It ls the best tonic for women.
Do you suffer from any of the pains peculiar to women?
Take Cardui. It will help you. Ask your druggist
