One of the questions which comes to
nearly every thinking mind today is,
“Why does God permit evil?” As we
look about us in the world we observe
that it is filled -with sorrow and trouble,
sickness and pain and every trial we
could enumerate, and we cannot help
wondering WHY GOD ALLOWS IT.
We realize that He is almighty and
that He could prevent it if He wished
We read in His Word that He is more
willing to do for His children than
are earthly parents xor theirs, and we
know how much that means; yet of
tentimes, it seems that those who try
to do and Ih e right have the most
trouble. This question is made very
clear in a book entitled, “The Divine
Plan of the Ages.” Every statement
is backed by Scripture, and shows that
while God does not sanction evil HE
HAS ALLOWED SIN AND DEATH
TO REIGN FOR THESE LONG SIX
THOUSAND YEARS. This and many
other subjects of deep interest to all
of God’s people are discussed fully and
in language easy of comprehension.

REASONS FOR USING
HOPS IN BEVERAGES
Taste and Aroma as Well as Pre
servative Quality Are Desired.
Some American growers claim that.
Inasmuch as American hops in many
cases are just as rich in the soft resins
as the best European hops, their brew
ing value ought to be equal to that of
the Europeans. They have not. how
ever, been able to convince American
brewers of the accuracy of this view.
They will try to do so at the barley
and hop exhibition in Chicago in Oc
tober, 1911. The principal trouble,
however, with American hops as they
reach the market is that they are pick
ed carelessly. The only part that is of
value to the consumer is the cone, and
everything in the shape of stems and
leaves that is mixed with the grains
not only diminishes the amount of
available material, but introduces a
decidedly injurious element, the leaves
and cones being rich in tannic acid,
which imparts a stringent and harsh
taste.
In the international barley and hop
exhibition, which will be held in Chi
cago in October, 1911, the item of
HEAD OF CHEVALIER BARLEY.
clean picking will cut an important
figure in the valuation of the hops
that will be entered for prize compe
tition.
The great importance of this exhi
bition will lie in the fact that it will
tend to put the valuation of hops upon
a substantial basis of facts rather than
of individual preferences.
All exhibits at this exposition will
be in the names of growers, no deal
ers being admitted to the competitive
exhibition. The exhibition is in charge
of the committee on awards, 1508 Re
public building, Chicago.
AWARDS OF PRIZES
FOR HOP EXHIBITS.
Conditions That Will Govern
In This Glass.
Awards of prizes will be made ac
cording to the following rules for hops
entered in the second international
barley and hop prize exhibition to be
held at Chicago, Oct. 12-22, 1911:
The awards will consist of twenty-one
prizes, the highest amounting to $l5O,
For the purpose of prize distribution
each distinct hop growing section (for-
liOPULIN GX.AND MAGNIFIED 300 TIMES.
elgn or domestic) will constitute a
class by Itself. The following Ameri
can sections are recognized as distinct
for this purpose; (1) New York state,
(2) California. (3) Oregon, (4) Wash
ington, (5) British Columbia.
Hops grown outside of these sections
will be considered as belonging to that
section which conforms most closely
to their districts geographically and
climatically, in the discretion of the
committee on aw r ards.
All samples of hops must be certified
to have been grown by the exhibitor.
The amount of hops offered for ex
hibit must be at least ten pounds, with
six clusters of about twelve cones each.

For an Idle Moment.
A substantial looking man halted for
a moment in the street, pulled out a big
wallet and examined a card which he
took from it. As he dropped the card
back and closed the book a fat wad of
bills showed in one of its compartments.
A pair of pickpockets passing, caught
sight of the money, and, with a rapid
exchange of meaning glances, they
dropped a liitle behind and followed the
man for several blocks with the view of
availing themselves of the first oppor
tunity to relieve him of the roll. After
awhile the man with the wad suddenly
turned and entered a lawyer’s office,
leaving the pickpockets facing each
other with looks of dismay.
“What shall we do now?” growled
one of them.
“Let us wait for the lawyer,” said the
other.

some pieces of money. After a quarter
of an hour open the door noiselessly and
see what the boy is doing. If he is read
ing the bible make him a clergyman; if
his attention is concentrated on the
apple make him a farmer, and if he is
amusing himself by counting the money
it’s plain that he is meant for a finan

The experiment was tried and when
the friend inquired what the result was

“1 found him sitting on the bible, he

Prof. Frank P. Turner of Ouchita col
lege, Ouchita Ga.. was talking at A
Monticello garden party about
graduate.
“The girl graduate, with her clear
eyes, her pink cheeks and her supple
figure in its white gown, is, indeed, a
sight for the gods. Mentally, too, she is
as delightful as she is physically.
“It is false to believe that all girl
graduates are like a certain Governor’s
daughter. She, a short time after her
graduation, said:
“ ‘Papa is so egotistical.’
“ ‘How so?’ asked a friend.
*• ‘Why, after hearing my graduation
essay, he still insists on writing his own,
speeches.’ ”
The recent discussion over the ap
pointment of a member of the fire and
police commission, Chicago, led Aid.
William Coleman to relate a tale of two
Irishmen and a fire department.
‘ The two Irishmen were called Pat
and Mike,” explained the alderman.
‘•They had just arrived over from the
old country and had never saw a fire
engine,
“That night while they were sleeping
the fire engine dashed by the hotel and
awakened Pat. He jumped out of bed
and ran to the window. When he saw
the smoke pouring out of the
stacks of the engines, he almost
fainted with horror.
“Mikel Mike! Wake up,” he screamed
to his partner in horror. “They’re mov
ing hell, and two loads have gone by
already!”
“A man named Hogan ran a saloon
down in Chicago near the Rush Medical
college. One night a bunch of students
fixed up a cadaver and brought it into
the saloon and stood it up against the
bar.
“After all had had a drink the boys
walked out, leaving the dead man stand
ing at the bar.
“Yez owe mo fifty chits’ said Hogan,
addressing the cadaver.
The cadaver said nothing and Hogan,
who was quick tempered, walked around
and smote the dead man on the jaw,
knocking the body down. Then the
students rushed in and one of them
knelt down and pretended to listen to
the cadaver’s heart. A scared look came
into the student’s face as ho arose to his
feet.
“ ‘fou’ve killed him, Hogan, ’ he said,
solemnly.
“Hogan stooped and listened and then
a cunning light came into his eyes.
“I admit I hit him, byes,” said Hogan,
‘ but I had to do it. The spalpeen drew
a knife on me.”
When President Taft was seven years
old his mother bought him a pair of
short duck trousers. The first time they
were washed they shrank badly. The
boy was fat, but his mother wedged him
into the trousers against his protest. He
went out to play, but in a few minutes
returned.
“Mama,” ho said, “I can’t wear these
pants; they are too tight. Why, mama,
they are tighter than my skin.”
“Oh, no; they’re not, Billy,” replied
his mother. “Nothing could be tighter
than your skin.”
“Well, all the same, these pants are.
I can ait down in my skin, but I can’t

Mrs. MacLachlau was kind to her
American boarder, but she did not pro
pose to allow her to overstep the limits
of a boarder’s privileges, and she made
it very clear. One Sunday the boarder
returning from a walk found the win
dows of her room, which she had left
wide open, tightly closed.
“Oh, Mrs. MacLachlau, I don’t like my
room to get stuffy,” she said when she
went downstairs again. “I like plenty
of fresh air.”
“Your room will na’ get stuffy in one
