Defects in Religious Instruction Pointed Out in Honline Lecture "Ecclesiastical and denominational Interests: running counter to commun ity interests has caused much of the trouble with Protestantism.'- declared Dr. M. A. Honline, In the last lecture of a series given here under auspices of the Citr Sunday School association. Wednesday night. , Dr. Honline laid the-foundation for hi nightJecture in his address In the afternoon, it -which cimehe portrayed the need of relig ious 'education in America. - . With the-Exception ..of ...his second lecture, given in the East Mailt Street Friends church, Sunday night, the one at the First English Lutheran church Wednesday night -was the most large ly -attended. Dr. Honline left for Shelby ville to conduct a series of lectures, Thursday. "The church of tomorrow must rlress service rather than doctrine. Thinking.people of today are far more interested in man's treatment of his ff llowman. than of what .he thinks abrtui the Trinity. Theuchnrch of yes terday concerned itselfwltH individual vicei:but the :church of tomorrow will stress formation rather than reforma tion. If the prodigal son had not prred, he would not have had to come hack.' It fs more a case of prevention than a cure. . f Object is Neceaaary. "When Christ said 'Suffer the little children to come unto me, for of such id tbe Kingdom of Heaven.' he virtual ly held up the child and said 'Here is a. specimen of heaven, " said Dr. Hon line, discussing the need of protecting the'lives of children by proper training. "Every Sunday school must have an object. If it isn't doing that which it was' called into existence to do, then It has failed. Every Sunday school teachers' object should be: (1) The conversion of his pupil: (2) Develop ment: of Christian character; (3) Training the child for Christian serv ice;, and (4); Enlisting the student in Christian service. Many people be- Alice Knollenberg was the organist. Lee B. Xusbaum led the congrega tional sieging. Stresses Need for Unity. "If Protestantism does not tang to gether, bless your soul, it will hang separately," was the concluding re mark of. Dr. M. A. Honline,.. speaking on the "Needs of Religious Educa tion," at the First English Lutheran church, Wednesday afternoon This statement followed a lengthy ' discus sion of Protestant needs, in which the lecturer revealed startling con ditions "We have discovered that 69 3-10 per cent of boys and girls between the ages of five and 25 are not receiv ing religious education of any kind in the United States. Those figures are from a survey of Jews, Catholics and Protestants. "Do you know-that since 1916, juv enile delinquency has increased 200 per cent? , And did you know that when it comes to crime and homicide America heads the list? "Recently, 237 Chicacp school teach ers made a survey or! 00,000 public school children . of. Chicago. They found that more than one-half of the children were suffering from too much 'movies. When these teachers sought to find the relative influence of the home, school, church and 'movies' on the same number of children, they found that , the home came first, as it should do; the school second, 'mov ies' third and the church fourth, i Favors Newer System. "What's the use of crying 'peace,' 'peace,' when there is no peace. I m not a pessimist, neither am I a coward. The solution is to create a system of religious schools supplementary to our Sunday " schools and parallel to our publio schools, 'without infringing on either." Dr. Honline carefully outlined on a black-board the elements governing the life of a child before he drew at- st ruction. At the same rate of time for the study of geography, it would take 14 years for one text book. Need Better Teachers. "The second tnmg is. your teachers are untrained. You must have teach ers who are consecrated to the work, and who have made preparation for the work. You parents send any place for a physician to treat your child when he is 111. Are you as particular about his spiritual welfare? "Third, we have not got the proper lesson material. I hope to see the time when lesson material is prepared by, pedagogista and not theologists. "FourtJ. our equipment is not ade quate. The average sum spent in each state on each high school pupil, each year, is $34.45. The average yearly church expenditure is 43 cents. "Remember that every child has been born with a religious nature. K this capacity is not developed and as sociated with the Holy Spirit, it tends to die out. You don't have to implant the germ of religion in the child. You understand? It is not your job to put it there. Understand, I never said the child was born a Christian. I said every child was born with a religious nature. It is your job to cultivate this religious capacity." The Rev. R. W. Stoakes led the de votional services. Thomas P. Wilson presided.

I RICHMOND. INDIA NA, APRIL 11, 1921 NO. 3 THE HOME GARDEN Potatofs' are by far the most im portant vegetable crop grown. They are always in season and are found on the table of all classes of people. They are the great staple vegetable in au markets. Potatoes are grown in most home gardens, but there are Just a few points in the potato-growing game that the home gardener is likely to overlook which are very important. First of all. potatoes grow quickly, and their food supply must be ail ready , and waiting for them in the soil. Second, they are heavy feed ers and want plenty of plant food .to draw upon. In other words, the soil for Irish potatoes must not only be rich but it must be rich in plant food of certain kinds. Land that was well manured the previ ous season and which contains plenty of organic matter is best. The first step in preparing theeoil will be to spade or plow it to aj depth of eight or nine inches, then! break up the clods if there be any, and pulverize the soil practically as deep as it is spaded or plowed. Commercial fertilizers give good results for growing potatoes, espe cially if the fertilizers contain pot ash, as potatoes require more pot ash than is usually present in the soil. Fertilizer manufacturers mix special brands for potatoes, and these are generally rather rich in potash. How much fertilizer to use will depend upon the fertility of the soil, but as a rule eight pounds to each 100 feet of row will be about right. A good way to apply ihe fertilizer is to make the holes or furrows and drop the pieces of seed potato, cover them with an inch or two of soil, then scatter the fertilizer aloog the row so that it will become well mixed with the soil in completing the covering of the seed. Another method is to scatter the fertilizer in' the furrow and mix it with the soil before dropping the pieces of seed potato. Small, shriveled potatoes, left in the bottom of the barrel at the end of wir ter are not fit for seed. Only plump, disease-free potatoes, on which the sprouts are just begin ning to start, should be used for seed. Seed grown in Maine, New York, Michigan, Wisconsin, or some other special seed producing sec tion, will as a rule, give best re sults. Seedmen get the seed pota toes shipped in by the car load and then sell them to gardeners in small quantities. It takes about ten bushels (S00 pounds) of seed potatoes to plant, an acre. One bushel of seed will plant one-tenth of an acre which is a space forty three feet wide by 100 feet long. A peck of seed potatoes (fifteen pounds) should plant 360 feet of row, each potato being cut into chunky pieces having at least one good eye to a piece. BORDEAUX FOR PERENNIALS A small quantity of Bordeaux spray will keep perennials in fine shape. Spray weekly during the next four or five weeks. This will insure clean foliage during the summer and prevent bud rot of peonies and control hollyhock rust. 1 lb. will make 5 gallons of liquid; lb., 45c. ARSENATE OF LEAD (Dry) For dusting and spraying. Solves the problem of controlling prac tically leaf eating insects in a par ticularly efficient manner. 1 lb., 60c; lb., 35c. PARIS GREEN A poisonous in secticide in powder form, for in sects which chew. When applied as a powder, use 1 part paris green to 10 parts plaster flour. As a liquid, one pound of paris green in 150 to 300 gallons water; if used on fruit trees add one pound quick lime. .j lbs., 40c; per lb., 75c. TOBACCO DUST (Fumigating and dusting) Fine dark powder of high strength aud will do the work. 5c per lb. BLACK LEAF 40 Black Leaf 40 is a solution of nicotine sulphate. It is highly rec ommended by experiment stations throughout the United States as a spray for soft bodied sucking in sects. For spraying only. 1 ounce bottle, 25c. WHY FERTILIZERS? The answer is that fertilizers in crease profits wherever properly used. They are carriers of plant food in an available and concen trated form They contain, the. three elements of plant food most needed in crop production, nitro gen, usually refered to as ammonia, phosphorus in the form of avail able phosphoiic acid and potas sium, or popularly potash. Nitro gen causes quick and vigorous plant growth, available phosphoric acid fills the grain or fruit and hastens ripening. Potash strength ens the straw or stalk. PULVERIZED LIMESTONE The agricultural value ot lime has been known for centuries. It Is an economic neutralizer for soil acid ity, also beneficial to the soil in many other ways; it improves the texture of the soil, lets in air and moisture, liberates nitrogen and other plant food, makes your soil sweet enlivens it that is, makeB conditions favorable to plant growth by giving life to the soil bacteria which makes it productive. Lime will be found very beneficial in the growing of all garden crops, fruit trees and flowers. Try it on the lawn, too. Apply after the land is plowed or dug for a crop, scat tering with a lime distributor. 2 tons or more per acre or by hand in small gardens about a large handful to a square yard. Packed in cotton sacks, not paper. Price, 100 lbs.. $1.00; 50 lbs., 75c. or 2c per pound. NITRATE OF SODA OR CHILE SALTETRE Nitrate of Soda is not a substi tute for other manure, but we rec ommend it as the cheapest and best form in which to apply nitro gen to plants. Gardeners who are using farm manure should continue to use it, but ise nitrogen of soda in addition to other fertilizers. If your object is to grow maximum crops you must furnish the plant with nitrogen. HOW TO USE NITRATE OF SODA Remove the lumps before using and break them up, which can be done by pounding. Use a top dressing at the rate of 100 lbs. per acre on the following vegetables. when plants are well established. For asparagus, a top dressing of 250 lbs. per acre just as soon as the first shoots make their appear ance. For strawberries, a top dressing of about 100 lbs. per acre after the plants have blossomed. For the home garden apply as a solution one ounce to two gallons of water. Price, 10c per pound. LAND PLASTER or GYPSUM A high-grade lime product for sweetening heavy and sour soils. $1.50 per 100 lbs., or 2c per lb. Lawn or Garden Fertilizer SHEEP MANURE In sheep ma nure there is sufficient ammonia to give the young plants a quick and vigorous start and maintain a healthy growth. Grass and early garden truck need lots of phosphor ic acid, which this supplies. For lawns, make first application in the early spring when frost is out of the ground, distribute evenly 25 lbs. of fertilizer to every 1,000 sq. feet of lawn. In seeding down a new lawn, scatter double the amount. 50 lbs. of fertilizer in ev ery 1,000 sq. feet, rake thoroughly, then sow seed. 100 lbs., $2.50; $1.50 for 50 lbs., or less quantity at 5c per lb.

THE VITAMINES IN BREAD Some knowledge of vitamines is necessary to everyone, and a thor ough appreciation of the worth of yeast, the chief source of one of these, is the paramount importance to the up-to-date baker at the pres ent time; for it places bread In the front rank as a food product containing in abundance and at low cost the very elements of life, growth, strength and good health. It makes bread the perfect food for children, since they must draw largely on vitamines for their growth, for both mental and physi cal development; for the strength to study and to play. Each day more attention is being drawn to the absolute necessity of vitamines in the diet. Through magazines, newspapers and all me diums 01 communication, me puunc is learning the basic facts in the case and demanding food which contains this magic element. The subject of dietics ha3 al most to be rewritten to take into account these minute food factors which have been the mystery and the golden prize of every labora tory where scientific food research is being conducted. The foods which contain them contain the elements of life, and build glowing, rosy strength, form muscles, healthy tissues and steady nerves. The foods which do not contain them must be eaten in conjunction with those that .do in order to con tribute their proper share of nour ishment to the body. This is the great opportunity of the baker who has his material ready to hand. Bread may be eaten three times a day and be tween meals by every member of the family. Everyone likes it and it combines well and naturally with other foods so that its large quanti- . ty of vitamines will cover the lack of foods low in this element. The obligation placed upon the baker is to turn out a quality loaf of wholesome bread, and to do this he must use the purest ingredients obtainable. The main ingredient of bread Is flourv made from the heart of the golden wheat. The baker's opportunity is also a chance for the miller as well. Co-operation will supply a splendid loaf of nutritious bread to meet the de mands of the market for the Best Food there is.
