Knew what he was Doing.?The congregation of a church at Elk Rock were much shocked upon learning that their peacher had departed under most discreditable circumstances. On the following Sunday it seemed to be the aim of nearly every one to hush up the scandal, and. under great restraint many uninteresting conversations were had, merely to prove that the members of the church could arise above sensation gossip. Just before the services were closed Brother Elijah P. : Brook rod arose and said: "Brethren and sisters, since we last met in this house something which seems to have cast a gloom over this congregation has occrrred. We were all much attached to our no inister; in fact, we loved him, and T ~ 4.W 4- im o nrovor X UUW ^iiupuso umii WO UUC1 up a pi?jv> for the wanderer." A sensational wave swept over the audience. Another brother arose, and turning to Elijah P. Brookrod, said: "I ani astonished you should desire this congregation to pray for our erring minister?you above all others." "Why?" "Because he ran away with your wife." "Yes, I know," Elijah replied, "and that is the reason why I think he will need our prayers."?Arkansas Traveler. He Acted Oddly.?He was going home to his wife and family. It was growing dark. He had a lonely road from the train, and he was getting along as fast as he could, when he suddenly gathered a dim suspicion that a man behind him was following him purposely. The faster he went the faster the man went, and they came to a grave-yard. "Now," he said to himself, "I'll find out if he is after me;" and he started through the cemetery. The man followed him. Vague visions of revolvers behind him, forebodings of footpads and garroters and things grew upon him. He dodged round a grave, and his pursuer doged after him. He made a detour of a family vault. Still this forbidding shadow followed him round and round. At last he turned and faced the fellow. "What do you want? What . are you following me for?" "I say, do you always go home like this? I'm going up to 's house to do a iob of carpentering, and the conductor told me if 1 followed you I'd find the place.

Stranger?"And that large, handsome brick structure?" Guide?"That's the ciud nouse, sir. Stranger?"I see. Well, what's that long, odd-looking building behind the enclosure ?" Guide?"The grand stand at the racecourse." Stranger?"Oh! yes. It's all very beautiful, but I should think the authorities would remove that unsightly little frame building, adjoining the hotel, away from the main thoroughfare. It mars the general effect. What is it ? Some sort of a hen house?" Guide?"No, sir. That's a church." ? A Virginia farmer who owned a fine calf was recently asked by a friend what he would take for the animal. "Six dollars," was the reply. The very next day the friend rushed over to tin farmer's house in a flurry of excitement. "The train killed your calf just now," said he. "By gosh!" exclaimed the farmer, "the railroad must pay me $15 for that calf. I wouldn't have taken $25 for him." It developed, however, that it was a hoax, and the farmer still holds the calf at fcfi. A Heavy-Weight Baby.?Nurse? "Shure, an' I weighed the baby to-day, mum.", Mistress?"Did you ? How much did he weigh ?" "Thirty-pounds, mum." "Ah, no! he don't weigh near that much. Where did you weigh him ?" "Shure, an' I weighed him at the grocer's an'he weighed tin pounds; then I weighed him at the meat market an' he weighed tin pounds there; so I weighed him at the hardware store, an' begorra, he weighed tin pounds there also, an' I would like to be after knowing if that ain't thirty pounds, mum ?" Av Accomplished Wife.?"Well, Nellie, does your husband still drink ?" "Yes, mother, and it's worrying the life out of me." "Did you try the plan of breaking him of the habit that I suggested to you?" "Yes." "Did vou put whisky in his coffee?" "Yes." "What did he say?" "He said I was the only woman he had seen since his mother died who knew how to make coffee as it should be made."? Lincoln Journal. The Dear Girls.?A Cincinnati pickpocket, seeing a young man with a young woman on each arm, deftly relieved him of his watch. The young man saw the deed and tried to grab the thief, but the girls clung to his arms and cried, "Don't go; he'll kill you," and more to that effect, until the thief got well away. They were not confederates of the pickpocket, either, but nice average Ohio girls, who were bound the young man shouldn't get hurt. tff- Flossie had been presented with a box of French candy.

Corn or Oats for Horses.?The comparative value of corn and oats for horses may be briefly stated as follows: The former is deficient in many of the elements of nutrition so necessary for recuperating the constant wear and tear which necessarily takes place in the body of a living animal. On this account horses which are exclusively fed on corn and hay do not receive that kind of nourishment which appears necessary for the due support and maintenance of the animal fabric. Hence, we must not be surprised that corn-fed horses show evidence of being languid by sweating profusely while being worked, lack of vitality, etc. Oats, on the contrary, contain more of the essential elements of nutrition than any other article of food which can be fed with impunity to horses. Oats are not only the most natural food for horses, but are decidedly the most nutritious. They are the cheapest, because there is less risk in feeding them, and experience has proved that horses properly fed on timothy hay and oats can, with regular exercise, good grooming and proper oanitarv rpomlqt.inns. be brousrht to the oaunmj , ? highest state of physical culture, and can perform more work with less evidence of fatigue thau when fed on any other article of food. Five Years' Experiments with Manures.?The results of five years' experiments with commercial and barnyard manures on the Agricultural college farm at Columbus, Mo., as set forth in a recent report on the same by Professor J. W. Sanborn, are briefly as follows: In good years, with a plentiful supply of moisture, chemical manures gave a larger wheat yield than yard manure; while in dry years the result was the reverse. The gain of the land treated with chemicals over that on which no fertilizer of any kind was used, was mostly, or possibly wholly, due to the nitrogen in the chemicals. Chemicals may be uselessly used and it is such misuse or unintelligent use that gives rise to the cry that they are valueless. Professor Sanborn advises farmers to attempt to use chemicals (not including lime plaster or salt) only after intelligent buying, a careful study of the soil by comparative tests, and then on horticultural crops mainly, including potatoes. This advice will not apply, however, when wheat approximates $1 per bushel, or when soils are largely deficient in potash or phosphoric acid. Mange in Dogs.?True mange is caused by parasites, species of acari resembling the itch insect infesting man. Poor condition of the animal, warm weather, and especially uncleanliness, may invite and encourage the trouble, but it can never be produced without the presence of acari. A dog cannot contract manage except by 1?: : ? ^ on infantorl animal UC1 Ug 1U UUlJ.ian mm au iuivv^vv. or where one has left the mange insects behind him. When the insects reach the dog they burrow into his skin and cause great and uncontrollable itching, as well as scabs and sores oh the surface. The best treatment consists in rubbing the dog with oil and then scrubbing him with castile soap and warm water. Then rub him dry and apply once a day a small quantity of sulphur ointment, well rubbed into all parts of his skin, and not only where the eruption has made its appearance. A still more effective application for the purpose is thymo-cresol. Of course the place where the dog is kept must be scrupulously and frequently cleansed so as to destroy all parasites. The internal treatment has to be n odified according to the animal's condition. A gentle aperient is sufficient. Formulae for Compost.?If the stable manure and cotton seed have been protected from waste by exposure to rain and sun, the following formula is recommended: Stable manure, 650 pounds. Green cotton seed, 050 pounds. Superphosphate, 700 pounds. Making a ton of 2,000 pounds. If the compost is intended for use on soils particularly deficient in potash, the proportion of cotton seed and stable manure may be reduced 50 pounds each, and 100 pounds of kainit used instead. The formula would then be: Stable manure, 600 pounds. Cotton seed green, 600 pounds. Superphosphate, 700 pounds. Kainit, 100 pounds. MbKing a ton of 2,000 pounds. These ingredients may be varied in proportions to adapt the resulting composts to different soils or crops, but either of the above will be found to give satisfactory results on every class of soils and on all of our cultivated crops. flop* A good farmer should never depend upon his neighbor for what he can, by care and good management, produce on his own farm. He should never beg fruit while he can planter graft trees; he should never borrow vehicles or tools if he can make or buy them ; he should never refuse a fair price for anything he wants to sell ; | he should never undertake to cultivate more land than he can till thoroughly, for while well-tilled land is constantly improving, half-tilled land is growing poorer every day. He should always have a supply of dry kindling wood or summer stove wood for his wilt.-, if he wishes to avoid chilling looks from her ; he should never have a broken pane of glass in his house, or a gate that will not shut. His tool house should be as clean as his wife's sitting room, and he should have a place for everything, and everything in its place. ? ? ^ B8F The question whether one-eye, twoeye, three-eye, or half pieces or whole potatoes for seed should be used is a conditional one. In a very rich soil two-eye pieces might give the best crop; in a poor soil larger pieces would perhaps yield better. Some varieties of potatoes are weakly growers and would he helped by the larger seed. Others are rank growers and small seed pieces would serve as well or better. This problem is best solved by each planter, as the condition of the soil differs with the locality. Clover.?Red clover will produce the heaviest crop of hay on suitable land that can be grown. Aboutfour pounds of green grass make one of hay. Orchard grass produces a pound of hay to less than three of grass. Alsike clover yields less than the red variety, but the proportion 4of grass to hay is the same. While it is a'dvisable to secure as large a yield as possible, it is best to grow a mixture in order to secure quality. 8SF- When wood is sold off the land there is a loss of fertility, but when the ashes are carefully saved, provided the wood be consumed on the farm, the potash and lime, as well as other mineral matters are retained, only a small loss of nitrogen occuring. A farm can be cropped as easily by growing wood upon it for sale as with ordinary crops. 5^-Any animal giving milk requires fre ,uent watering. While many cows in winter will only drink once or twice a day, they will in summer require water three i. 1 times?morning, noon uuu lugm?miu drink heartily each time. The water, even in summer, is better for standing where it will be nearly blood warm. There is no reason why farmers should receive less than the regular prices for any kind of produce. If they will ship articles in good condition, and allow nothing to leave the farm except that of the best quality, they can always find a ready sale for all classes of produce. Sgg- It is better to have a crop of some kind in the ground at all times, provided such .crops be not permitted to mature, but to be turned under as manure. Fallowing is ^ot always best. , Kever stand still in cold weather, especially after having taken a slight degree of exercise, and always avoid standing on ice or sno^v, or where the person is exposed to cold winds. When hoarse, speak as little as possible until the hoarseness is recovered from, i else the voice may be permanently lost, or 1 difficulties'of the throat be produced. leading fat the ^a&bath. CONDUCTED BY RKV, ROBERT LATHAN. [Original.] THE YOUNG RULER. The Bible is the most interesting as well as the most instructive book in the world. There is no more interesting passage recorded in that wonderful book than the brief history ot a certain rich young ruler. What the young ruler's name was we do not know ; neither do we know to which one of the twelve tribes of Israel he belonged. With these exceptions we have a full and minute history of the man, and yet it is so short that it may be read from beginning to end in less than ten minutes. It will be found in the gospel by Matthew, /.Kn?\fnr 1ft 1/??00* ?n the (vncno) h\r Marl" LIKipitl il/ 1U j 111 VI1V wj aiama nj chapter 10:17?22, and in the gospel by Luke, chapter 18:15?23. The time that the interview between our Saviour and this rich young man occurred, was but a few weeks before our Saviour was crucified. The place where it occurred is not definitely stated, but it was at some point east of the river Jordan, in the region of country called Perea. The probability is that it was opposite the city or town of Jericho. Our Saviour, with his disciples, was on his way to Jerusalem to keep the Passover. The Jews residing on the east side of the Jordan were, at the same time, going up to Jerusalem for the purpose of keeping the Pas3over. It is highly probable that this rich young man was also on his way to Jerusalem to keep the Passover, or he may have lived in the region of country through which our Saviour was passing. Be this as it may, while our Saviour and his disciples were actually walking along the road, the young man came running to Jesus, and kneeling down to him asked what good thing he should do in order to inherit eternal life. So far as we are informed, this was the first time the rich young man and Jesus had met, but it is manifest that the young man had heard of Jesus before. There was something very remarkable about this interview. This is evident from the man" MfLiftL if ir? wAlni-Arl Ktt aqaK nf tho IJC1 JII W1IIU11 1U lo lUiatCU uj ua\.n \jL vuv three evangelists. Each one of them introduced it with behold, & word never used except to call our attention to something wonderful. One marvelous thing in this interview is that it occurred at all. Evidently the young man belonged to a class in society which furnished few anxious inquirers after the way of life. He, we are told, was rich and a ruler. We are not informed whether the office he held was ciyil or ecclesiastical. It is evident, however, that he occupied a prominent position in society. The wonder is that such a man condescended to ask advice of Jesus at all. The class of men to which he belonged has been notorious for six thousand years for indifference concerning their eternal welfare. Not one of the twelve apostles was a ruler, neither was any one of the seventy sent out by our Saviour to proclaim that the kingdom of heaven was at hand. Very few, if any, of the early Christians, were rulers. No doubt there were some anxious inquirers among the rulers, but this one ana Nicodemus are all, so far as is now remembered, who came to Jesus anxiously inquiring the way of life. It is a remarkable thing that Nicodemus is never mentioned without it being stated that he came to Jesus by night. This rich young man, whatever was his name, came to Jesus in open day, andin a public place. This was a wonderful thing. Another thing which made this ruler's coming to Jesus for advice with regard to eternal life wonderful, was that he was young and rich. Jlich young men have, since the fall of Adam, been noted, if not for their profligacy, for their marked neglect of religion. In the pleasures of this present life, their minds are wholly engrossed and they have neither time nor inclination to think about eternal life, much less inquire about it. Viewed from a human standpoint, it was a marvelous thing that this rich young ruler, however anxious he was on the subject, came to Jesus to inquire what he must do to inherit eternal life. With the class of persons to which he belonged, Jesus was contemptuously called the Nazarene. They did not hesitate to tell him to his face that he had a devil, and cast out devils by Beelzebub, the prince, or the most infamous of devils. If any of the class to which this young man belonged, I a favnro Mo r?r?ininn nf .TpmiQ CU iniaiUVU U> IUTUlUk/lV> wfAt'ivst. v. wvmv, such was the universal odium with which Jesus was regarded by the rulers of the Jews, that these individuals dared not give public utterance to that opinion. Because of this sentiment of disapprobation of Jesus which prevailed among the rulers of the Jews, Nicodemus came to Jesus by night. He was afraid of the certain odium which he would bring upon himself if the other rulers would learn that he had been conferring with Jesus. It is a wonder that this young man did not go to some of the learned Jewish doctors, or to the chief priests, or to the great Jewish Council, and state his case. But he did not; he came to Jesus and in all the sincerity of his heart, inquired what he must do to inherit eternal life. This must have been regarded by the other rulers as a most wonderful thing. A rich young ruler?a man of good position in society?a young man with bright prospects, goes, in open daylight, and on-the public highway, crowded with persons of all classes and conditions in society, to ask Jesus what he must do to inherit eternal life. If he had gone to Gamaliel the act would have elevated him in the estimation of the rulers of the Jews, but to go to Jesus for advice was to put both his character and life in jeopardy. This was a very wonderful thing. All these attending circumstances preclude the idea of hypocrisy on the part of this rich young ruler. He was in verity an anxi6us inquirer. In addition, he evidently had a favorable opinion of the Saviour. Both Mark and Luke relate that he addressed Jesus as 'Hiood Master," that is, good teacher; and Mark further states that he kneeled to Jesus. This shows that although he was young, and rich, and a ruler, he still regarded Jesus as his superior. The sincerity of the young man does not admit of a doubt. He was courteous in his maimers, gentlemanly in his address, anxious in regard to his spiritual state, beingfully aware that he was not perfect and conscious that he lacked something. He was, in one word, a sincere and anxious inquirer. In answer to the inquiry of the young man, "What shall I do to inherit eternal life?" Jesus said unto him, according to Matthew's account, "Ifthou wouldst enter into life, keep the commandments." The young man promptly inquired, "What commandments?" Our Saviour replied, "Thou shalt not kill, thou shalt not commit adultery, thou shalt not steal, thou shalt not bear false witness, honor thy father and thy mother, and thou shalt love thv neighbor as thyself." And Mark explains what is meant by "thou shaltlove thy neighbor as thyself," by "thou shalt not defraud." These commandments embrace all the second table of the moral law. The young man promptly replied that he had kept all these commandments from his youth, and anxiously and honestly inquired further, "What lack I yet?" This surely was a most remarkable young man. From his childhood he had i been faithful in discharging all the duties I required by tlip second table of the moral law. His character was without a stain. ' He had as boy and man lived uprightly before the world. He had contracted none : of those bad habits which young men of ; wealth and social position so often conI tract. Neither man nor woman could justly bring any charge against him. He j was neither a drunkard nor a debauchee, | he was honest in all his dealings, courte! ous and gentlemanly in his manners. He ' was, in one word, when viewed from a human standpoint, a high-toned, dignified gentleman. Nature had done a great deal | for him. There was something amiable about him. Even our Saviour, when he looked upon him, loved him. In his intense anxiety, this young ruler asked the Saviour what he lacked besides keepiug these commandments that he might inherit eternal life. This inquiry the Saviour answered thus : "If thou wilt be perfect, go and sell that thou hast, and i give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasI ure in heaven ; and come, follow me." I When the young man heard this hiscoun tenance changed and a lowering cloud of] dismal gloom mantled hi9 cheeks. His brow fell and deep sorrow filled his heart, "for," it is said, "he was very rich." This' simple answer of our Saviour revealed the fact that with all hi9 amiable traits of character, aud honest dealings with his fellow men, he was nothing but a sincere self-righteous inquirer. He had no just conception of what eternal life meant, or the channel through which it is attainable. "What good thing," he asks, "shall I do that I may have eternal life?" or "what shall I do that I may inherit eternal life?" as Mark and Luke state it. He, in the sincerity of his unregenerated heart, thought there were two ways by which he could become possessed of eternal life. The one was by doing some "good thing," l^A if noon inhnrifQnf'P nic uuici uy iCLcivni^ u ao cv?i iuii*.nvi?..w. No doubt he had inherited his great riches. Before, however, he got full possession of these riches, he had to comply with some legal forms. He had heard, in all probability, that Jesus Christ was offering eternal life to men, and ho was anxious, intensely anxious, to learn the condition on which he might inherit eternal life. Poor man, he had wealth, social position, good moral habits and something which had a striking resemblance to true religion, but he lacked one thing, and that one thing was everything so far as eternal life to him was concerned. He lacked a new heart. He was anxious to know what good thing he should do to inherit eternal life, and Jesus gave him an opportunity to do good. What better thing, could he have done than give his possessions to the poor, apd thus exchange earthly riches for a treasurein heaven. The simple truth is, the rich young man had nothing but the most vn.pnA ideas of what is meant by eternal life. He did not desire the eternal life that Jesus Christ was offering to the people. He wanted something, but he did not want anything that required him to break his hold on the world and follow Jesus. It is evident that this rich young man, with all his many excellent traits of character and moral uprightness, had no just knowledge of the extent and spirituality of God's law. In the sincerity of his heart he said that he had, from his youth, loved his neighbor as himself; but there tiroa nnf a wnrH nf truth in what, hp Sfll'fl. He was, in reality, a bundle of selfishness. Because this young man was rich he went away sorrowful when Jesus advised him to sell his property and give to the poor and follow him. He went away, and so far as we are informed he never again came to Jesus. The practical feature of this interview of the rich young man and our Saviour is, that what was necessary on the part of the rich young man to enter into eternal life is required of all men. We are required to be willing to give up everything earthly, if God in his providence requires it, and take up our cross and follow Jesus. It is to be feared that were the whole body of professed Christians of the present day subjected to the same test that this rich young man was subjected to, the vast majority of us would go away sorrowful. Not in every case because we are rich, but because our hearts are set on the things of this world. We are not informed as to the amount of this young man's riches. Probably compared with many modern rich men, he was only in comfortable circumstances, but his heart was set on his riches. The poor man who has not a roof to shelter his head may have his heart set on riches. The startling announcement of our Saviour is that it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God. "Ye see your calling, brethren," says Paul to the Corinthians, "how that not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble are called," or, as the revised version suggests, "have a part therein." The visible Church is largely made up of the poor. The gospel is preached to the poor and the poor are made willing to hear it and accept it. We may safely say that of the vast multitude who will sing the song of Moses and the i Lamb, but few rich men will join in that | anthem,. This4i*u*foi* inference not only from what our Saviour said to his disciples after the rich young man had gone away sorrowful, but from the general teaching of the Scriptures. Some rich men, however, will be saved. This rich young man represents the mass of rich rulers, but the grand old patriarch Job, represents also a part of the rich. Job was rich, but he said, when reduced to poverty, "The Lord gave, and the Lord hath taken away; blessed be the name of the Lord." ^KlM? POWDER Absolutely Pure. This powder never varies.
