The attendance was not o large expected, but the in terest was much more than even the near neighbor! thought it would be. Professor Robert and Mr. Jones eon ducted the field meeting bv visiting each plot and explaining to the farmer! the treatment of the aoil and ita effect in increased production One striking experiment was that of the yield of 10 bushels of com per acre on an untreated plot against 74 bushels with lime phosphate and manure. After inspecting the field the crowd moved to the achoolhouse, where the discussion continued until dinner wai aerved by Mrs. Lewis, Mr. Abney, and Mrs. Chesnut Everybody bad plenty and food re mained to be carried back home. These ladies deserve much credit for their dinner and service. Professor Good and Mr. Herndon were the speakers in the afternoon. This ii the third field meeting on this field. We hope with this begin ning that we will have an annual field meeting for the benefit of our farmers. This field belongs to the farmers and one day should be de voted to this work.

PURINA KISuS TO PARENTS The College of Agriculture of the University of Kentucky has a vision of service to the entire State. Its extension agents, club leaders and experimental fields are but a part of the machinery to make this vision a reality. Te fur ther the service rendered the state and to afford farm boys and girls an opportunity to discover to a great er degree some of the interesting and important feature of the farm and home, a aeries of summer camps has been arranged. These camps are controlled locally, but the general program and arrangements for rec reation, instruction and inspiration are directed and given largely by the members of the staff of the Col lege of Agriculture of the Univer sity of Kentucky in coopera tion with the United States De partment of Agriculture. It is hoped that these camps may re sult in a broadening of ideala and in the atimulation to a greater desire for education. Farm boys and girls are invited to attend the camp In their county or an adjoining one. There they will receive an introduc tion to the University, meet ether boys and girls who arc interested in similar things and receive the inspi ration and counsel of thoroly quali fied men and women. Thomas P. Cooper, I Dean and Director OFFICERS AND TEACHERS The Agricultural Extension Divi sion of the College of Agriculture, the local health authorities, State De partment of Agriculture and . the State Y.

Xedeklah waa maile king of Judith by the king of Rnhylon (24:17), but In aplte of this klndnena and the word of the Iird spoken to him by Jeremiah (Jer. 38:17. 18: cf. Jer. S2:S). he re belled against the king of Babylon. He relied upon the help of Egypt, hut all that Egypt could do was to cause temporary Interruption of the siege of Jerusalem. 1. The Selge ef Jerusalem (vv. 1-3). t. Time of (?v. I. 2). It began on the tenth day of the tenth month of the ninth year of 7,edeklah's reign snd laxted about eighteen months. The tenth month according to the Jewish calendar corresponds to our December January, as their rslendar year began about the middle of March. The reason the exsct time Is given Is that this was to be an event of great Importance to the Jews In their exile. 2. The Method (v. 1). Nehuchadnes xar came In person with a large army and encamped against Jerusalem and built forts against It round about. It la' thought that siege walls were built around the city, shutting It in. On the tops of these walls forts were built from which missiles of destruction could be hurled by their engines of wsr sgalnst the city. With the city sbut In Its fall wss only a question of time. 3. The Ksmlne (v. 3). It Is estimat ed that one-third of the people of Jeru anient died of starvation. II. Zedekiah'a flight and Fate (vv. 4-7). 1. "The City was Broken l'p" (v. 4). The Chaldeans hsd succeeded In mak ing an oenlng In the wall so large that they could make their way Into the city In aplte of all that the He brews could do. Iteslstance waa car ried on to the bitter end. 2. Kedeklab'a flight (v. 4). The king with hla men of war fled by night to ward the plain. His object, no doubt, waa to cross the Jordan at Jericho and hide In the mountains east of Jordan. 3. Zedekiah'a Tate (vv. 5 7). (1) He wss overtaken In the plains of Jericho (v. 5). When his Bight was discovered the Chaldean army pursued and rap tured him. (2) He was brought to the king of Babylon at Klblah (v. 6). Riblah was a town north of Damascus. It wss the king's headquarters from which ke dlnnied hla armies against Tyre and Jerusalem. Before Neb uchadnexxar. Zedeklah was tried ss a criminal. (3) His fate (v. 7). Hla sons were slsln In his sight ; his eyes were put out; he was bound with fet ters of hrsss; snd they rsrrled him to Babylon where he remained pris oner until the day of hla death (Jer. 52:11). III. Jerusalem Destroyed (vv. 8 10). Tlie dismantling of the city wss de layed a month, perhapa awaiting In structions from Nebuchadnessar, who waa at Rlhlab. 1. They Burnt the House of the Iird (v. 9). This waa the sacred temple built by Bolomon with sddltlons and modifications. Before burning It they plundered It of all Ita sacred contents. 2. Burnt the Klng'a House (v. ). This was doubtleas the palace built by Holomon. 3. Rurnt All the Houses of Jeru salem (v. 0). The Implication Is that the common houses were left for the people (v. 12). 4. They Broke Down the Walls of Jeruaalem. The aim waa to reader the walls useless aa a means of de fense, IV. The Disposition ef the People (vv. 11. 12). 1. Carried Them Into Captivity (v. It). The people who were left In the city and IIunh who bad deserted to the Babylonians were carried to Baby lon; all auch aa would be of uae In Babylon. I 2. The I'ooreat of the Land Were Left (v. 12). The people who would not likely make any trouble were left si vine-dressers and husbandmen. Doubtless they were looking forward to colonisation by foreign peoples. The object In leaving these people wss that the country might be ready for their coming. Over theeu people Uedallah was appointed aa governor, wltb head quarters at Mlxpab. Te the Thief.

Isaiah 48:22, HOME DEPARTMENT Conducted by the Home Economic! Department 0f Beres Collef e PICTURES IN THE HOMK A Talk Gives te the Clrle ef the Feudatloe Country Heme You all have dreams, I suppose, of a home of your own, some day, in which you will be able to express your own Individual taste, te work out some of the principles which you are learning here. It la about this future home and how you may be getting ready for it now that I wish to talk to you this morning. Aa you already know, there la s great difference between a house and a home. To man belongs the privi lege of providing the house, to wo man the mission of transforming it Into a home. You will not be able, perhaps, to control the house, ita lo cation, atyle of architecture, etc., but you can control Its decoration. No matter if you have but little to spend, you can spend that little well. To nuke s home beautiful we do not require rich furnishings, but we do need taste In selecting what little we have. It la not about the fur nishings, however, that I wish to speak, nor about the books which every good home must have, but I want to say a few words about the pirturea for the home. I do not be lieve we ran ever estimate the value of good pictures. Browning has said that "If you get aimple beauty and naught else, You get about the best thing God invents." And ao about the best thing you can do to make your home attractive, after you have made it clean and wholesome, is to hang on its walla a few well-chosen pictures. Psychologists tell us that the eye la the first avenue to the koul. That a child learns eighty percent more thru the sense of sight than thru any other aense. How important, then, that the child should aee in the home only things that are well selected. The young are very sensi tive to external impressions, and a home where good taste prevails will do much to keep the boys and girls off the street Such s home will have ita influence on the whole com munity, for good taste is quick to spread. The influence of s good picture it as great aa that of a good book and much more eaaily and unconsciously felL Picture study should be taken as seriously aa the study of the master-pieces of literature. As among looks, so among pictures, there are mniiy good but few best. We should be getting acquainted with some of the best pictures of the world. We should study them as we study great books, to enjoy them and to appropriate what they have to give us. We can all know the best pictures, even if we cannot go to the great art galleries. For we ran buy copies of all the best pictures of the world for a few cents. Nobody then, ought to be without some good pic tures. Now is the time to begin your collection of pictures as well as of books. For a few cents you can hang s Raphael on your wall and feast your soul. "A room hung with beautiful pic tures is a room hung with beautiful thoughts." Some one has aaid that "pictures are windowa for the soul." We come to enjoy pictures just as we come to enjoy our friends by being with them, by coming to know them better. Many a friend who at first seemed unattractive, on closer acquaintance becomes beautiful. So it is with a picture. Southern Agriculturist NASHVILLE, TENN. The Giant of the South Its immense popularity h due not only to the (act that every line in it is written for South ern farm families by men and women who know and appreciate Southern conditions, but to the practically unlimited personal service that is given to subscribers without charge. Every year we answer thousands of ques tions on hundreds of different subjects all without charge. When you become a sub scriber this iavaluable personal service is yours. That is one reason why we have 375,000 Circulation In looking st s picture we should Ire to discover what the artist means. What he la trying to aay to us. Sometimes, as In s landscape, he is trying to reveal a beauty which might otherwise have escaped our eyes. "We are so made that we love First, when we see them, painted things. We have passed Perhaps a hundred timea, nor cared to aee, So they are better painted, better to ua Which la the same thing." The artist, too, shows us the beauty of the commonplace. Not alone la youth beautiful, but old age has iU peculiar charm aa Rembrandt, Millet, and others have ahown ua. What S charm these artiste have thrown around the aged, wrinkled face; the coarse brawny peasant It Is no small gift to Interpret to the world the beauty of the common place. But the artist can do atill more; he can. create beauty; he can express by means of line and color the noble conceptions of hia mind. As we come to know the beat pictures bet ter they are constantly revealing new trutha to us they become like old friends, not only a source of delight, but of inspiration and uplift After the selection of the pictures we would like to live with, the mat ter of framing them is of great Im portance. The frame la for the pur pose of giving the picture aa much prominence as possible. It is ab surd, therefore, to have the frame ao conspicuous that one's attention ia drawn to it rather than to the picture. In general gilt frames should be used for colored pictures, while photographs and prints should be framed to harmonise in color with the middle tone of the pictures. A brown toned picture should have a brown frame, a gray toned picture should have s gray or black frame. Simple inexpensive frames of oak or aome other wood with no ornate pro jections to catch the dust are most satisfactory. The hanging of the pictures as well aa the background on which they are hung makes a great differ ence. A plain wall pape-Ja best as fr aa pictures are concerned. Care ahould be taken not to hang the pic turea too high, and not to have too many on the same wall space. They ahould be, aa s usual thing, on a level with the eye when aUnding, and the bottoms of the pictures snouia be on the same level.
