One of the truthful sayings in re
gard to hor3e breeding is: "It is a mis
take to expect a sire to prolucs a colt
after his own style, and finish when
the mare is of no style or type what
ever. Up and down, that is the way with
the bicycle and horse business. Only
a few years ago the price of bicycles
was very high while that of horses
were low. Manufactures improved
this time while breeders of horses lay
quiet or slept What are the condi
tions today? Just the reverse. Bicy
cles lowprice, horses high price. Plen
ty of bicycles, scarcity of horses. The
old rule should always be applied.
when everybody wants to buy ti.cm
sell, and vice versa. Always breed
good horses.

As it is no objection agains t lam b
sent to market nnder a year that they
have not be in oistraied, tlurj is no
reason why this operation should be
performed on them. It is even a ques
tion whether it would not be best to
market all the male sheep, while lambs,
and under a year old, and so get rid of
this extra work and risk. A two year
old wether is not so profitable as a 10
months old lamb. Under present con
ditions of the live stoe'e business, the
earlier and animal goes to market the
more money it brings to the seller for
the expense of rearing it The weth
er is now a thing of the past, if we are
to consider the profit of it, after hav
ing been fed two winters. The most
p: ofitable sheep now is that which has
ntv ;r known what a winters snow or
cold is, ani goes to market the same
year it is born. If horned cattle are
the most saleable at two or three years
old, sheep should be the same nnder
one year of age. Then we may no
longer rua the risk, or go to the labor
of castrating the male lambs. Ex.

Dr. Tahnage's text Sunday was Exo
dus iii., 1: "Now Moses kept the flock
of Jethro. his father-in-law, the priest
of Midian."
In tlie southeastern part of Arabia
a man i.ssitting by a welt. It is an arid
country, and water is scarce, so that a
well is of great value, and Hocks and
herds are driven vast distances to
have their thirst slaked. .lelhro, a
MIdianite shiek and priest was so for
tunate as to have seven daughters: and
they are practical girl, and yonder
they come driving the sheep and cattle
and camels of their father to the water
ing. They lower the hiickets and then
pull them up, the water plashing on the
stones arid chilling their feet, and the
troughs are tilled. Who is that man out
there sitting unconcerned and looking
on? Why does' he not come and help
the women in this hard work of draw
ing water? Hut no sooner have the
dry lips and panting nostrils of the
flacks begun to cool a little in the
brimming trough of the well than some
rough lledonin shepherds break in up
on the sivne, and with clubs and
shouts drive hack the animals that
were drinking, and affright these girls
until they fly in retreat, and the flocks
of these ill-mannered shepherds arc
driven to the troughs, taking the place
of the other flocks. Now that man sit
ting by the well begins to color, up,
and his eye flashes with indignation,
and all the gallantry of his nature is
aroused. It is Moses, who naturally
had a quick temper anyhow, as he
demonstrated on one occasion
when he saw an Kgyptian op
pressing an Israelite anil gave
the Kgyptian a sudden clip and buried
him in the sand, and he showed after
ward when he broke all the Ten Com
mandments at once by shattering the
two granite slabs on which the law
was written. But the injustice of this
.treatment of the seveu girls sets him
on fire with wrath, and he takes this
shepherd by the throat, and pushes
Lack another shepherd till he falls
over the trough, and aims a stunning
blow between the eyes of another, as
he cries: "Begone, you villians!" and
he hoots and roars at the sheep and
cattle ani camels of these invaders
and drives them back; and having
cleared the place of the desperadoes
he told the seven girl.s of tliU Midian
ite sheik to gather their flocks to
gether and bring them ngMti to the
watering.
Oh, you ought to see a fight between
the shepherds at a well in the Orient,
as I saw it in December, 18W. There
were her.! a group of rough men who
had driven the cattle many miles, and
here another group who had driven
their cattle as many miles. Who
should have precedence? Such clash
ing of bucket?! Such hooking of horns!
Such kicking of hoofs! Such ehe
raence in a language I fortunately
could not understand! Now the sheep,
with a peculiar mark across their wool
ly backs, were at the trough, and now
the sheep of another mark. It was
one of the most exciting scenes I
'ever witnessed. An old book describes
one of these contentions at an eastern
well when it says: ,"Oae day the poor
men,. the widows and the orphans met
together and were driving their cam
els and their flocks to drink, and were
all standing by the water side, Daji
came no and stopped them all, and
took possession of the water for his
master's cattle. Just then an old
woman belonging to the tribe of Abs
came up and accosted him in a suppli
cant manner saying: "It so good Mas
ter Daji, as to let my cattle drink.
They are all the property 1 possess
and Hive by their milk. Pity my flock;
have compassion on me. (Irant my re
quest and let them drink." Then
came another old woman
and addressed him: "Oh. Mas
ter Daji, 1 am a poor, weak, old
woman, as 3-011 see. Time has dealt
hardly with me. It has aimed its ar
rows at me, and its daily and nightly
calamities have destroyed all my men.
I have lost my children and my hus
band, and since then I have- been in
great distress. These sheep are all
that I possess. Let them drink, for I
live on the milk that they produce.
Pity my forlorn state. I have no one
to tend them. Therefore, grant my
supplication and of thy kindness let
them drink.' Hut in this case the
brutal slave, so far from granting this
humble request, smote the woman to
the ground."
A like scrimmage has taken place at
the well in the triangle of Arabia, be
tween the Bedouin shepherds and
Moses championing the cause of the
seven daughters who had driven their
father's flocks to the watering. One
of these girls, Zippotah. her name
meaning "little bird." was fascinated
by this heroic behavior of Moses; for
however timid woman herself may be.
she always admires courage in a man.
Zipporah became the bride of Moses,
one of the mightiest men of all
the centuries. Zipporah little thought
that that morning as she helped
drive her father's flock to the
well she was splendidly deciding her
own destiny. tIIad she stayed in the
tent or house while the other
six daughters of the sheik
tended to their flocks her life
would probably have been a tame and
uneventful one in the solitudes. But
her industry, her fidelity to her fath
er's interest her spirit of helpfulness,
brought her into league with one of
the grandest characters of all history
They met at that famous well, and
while admired the courage of Moses
he admired the filial behavior of Zip
porah. The fact that it took the seven
daughters to drive the flocks to the
well implies they were immense flocks,
and that her father was a man of
wealth. What was the use of Zipporah
bemeaning herself with work when
.she might have reclined on the hillside
near her father stent and plucked but
tercups, and dreamed out romances,
and sighed idly to the winds, and wept
over imaginary songs to the brooks.
No. she knew that work was honor
able, and'that every jrirl ought tc have
somethi g to do. and so she starts with
bleating and lowing and bellowing and
neighing droves to the well foi the
watering.
Around every home there are flocks
and droves ot'eares and anxieties, and
every daughter of the family, though
there be seven, oughjf tc be doing her
part to take care of the flocks In
many households, not enly is Zippo
rah, but all her sisters, without prac-
tical and useful employments. Many
of them are waiting for fortunate and
prosperous matrimonial alliance, but
some lounger like themselves wi: I come
along, and after counting the large
number of Father Jethro's sheep and
camels, will make proposal that will
be accepted: and neither of them hav
ing done anything more practical than
to chew chocolate caramels, the two
nothings will start on the road of life
together, every step more and more a
failure. That daughter of the Midi
unitiah sheik will never lind her
Moses.
Gifts of America, imitate Z'pporah.
Do something practical. Do some
thing helpful. Do something well.
Many have fathers with great flocks
of absorbing duties, and such a father
needs help in home, or office, or field.
Go out and help him with the flocks.
The reason that so many niennowcon
demn themselves t tinaffianced and
solitary life is because they can not
support the modern young woman,
who rises at 10:30 in the morning and
retires after midnight, one of the
trashiest of novels in her hand most of
the time between the late rising and
the late retiring a thousand of them
not worth one Zipporah.
There is a question that every father
and mother ought to ask the daughter
at breakfast or tea table, and that all
the daughters of the wealthy shiek
ought to ask each other: "What would
yon do if the family fortune should
fail, if sickness should prostrate the
breadwinner, if the llochs of Jethro
should be destroyed by a sudden ex
cursion of wolves and bears and hy
enas from the mountains? What would
you do for a living? Could you sup
port yourself? Can you take care of an
invalid mother, or brother or sister as
well as yourself?"' Yea, bring it down
to what any day might come to a pros
perous family. "Can you cook a dinner
if the servants should make a strike
for higher wages and leave that morn
ing?" Every minute of every hour of
every day of every year there are fam
ilies flung from prosperity into hard
ship, and alas! if in such exigency the
seven daughters of Jethro can do noth
ing but sit around and cry and wait
for some one to come and hunt them
up a situation for which they have no
qualification. (Jet at something use
ful; get at it right away! Do not say:
"If I were thrown upon my own re
sources 1 would become a music teach
er." There are now more music teach
ers than could be supported if they
were all Mozarts and Wagners and
Ilandels. Do not say: "1 will go to
embroidering slippers." There are
more, slippers now than there are
feet Our hearts are every day wrung
by the story of elegant woman who
were once affluent, but through catas
trophe have fallen helpless, with no
ability to take care of themselves.
Our friend and Washingtonian
townsman, W. W. Corcoran, did a mag
nificent thing when he built and en
dowed the "Louise Home" for the un
fortunate aristocracy of the south
the people who once had everything
but have come to nothing. We want an
other W.W.Corcoran to build a "Louise
Home" for the unfortunate aristocracy
of the north. But institutionslike that
in every city of the land could not take
care of one-half the unfortunate aris
tocracy of the north and south, whose
large fortunes have failed, and who,
through lack of acquaintance with any
st3'le of work, can not now earn their
own bread.
There needs to be peaceful, yet radi
cal revolution among most of the pros
perous homes of America, by which
the elegant do-nothings may be trans
formed into practical do-somethings.
Let useless women go
to work and gather the flocks.
Come, Zipporah, let me introduco you
to Moses. But you do not mean that
this man affianced to this country girl
was the great Moses of history, do
you? You do not mean that he was
the man who afterward wrought such
wondera? Surely you do not mean the
man whose staff dropped, wriggled in
to a serpent, and then, clutched, stiff
ened again into a staff? You do hot
mean the challenger of Egyptian
thrones and paluces? You do not mean
him who struck the rock so hard it
wept in a stream for thirsty hosts?
Surely you do not mean the man who
stood alone with God on the quaking
Sinaitic tanges; not hira to whom the
Red Sea was surrendered? Yes, the
same Moses defending the seven
daughters of the Midiantish sheik;
who afterward rescued a nation.
Why, do you not know that this is
the way men and women get prepared
for special work? The wilderness of
Arabia was the law school, the theo
logical seminary, the university of
rock and sand, from which he gradu
ated for a mission that would balk
seas, and drown armies, and lift the
lantern of illumined cloud by night,
and start the workmsn with bleeding
backs among Egyptian brick kilns
toward the pasture lands that
flow with milk "and the trees
of Canaan dripping with honey.
Gracious God, teach all th? people this
lesson. You must go into humiliation
and retirement and hidden closets of
prayer if you are to be fitted for spe
cial usefulness.

of fire rode over death .and escaped
into the skies without mortuary disin
tegration; the man who thousands of
years after, was called out of the eter
nities to stand beside Jesus Christ on
Mt Tabor when it was ablaze with the
splendors of transfiguration this man
could look back to the time when vo
racious and lilthy ravens were his only
'latt-rers. You see John Knox preach
:ig the coronation sermon of James
v I., and arraigning Quoen Mary and
Lor I Darnley in a public discourse at
Edini urgh, and telling the French am
bass;.dor to go home and call his king
a murderer; John Knox making all
Christendom feel his moral power, and
at his burial the earl of Morton saving:
"Here lieth a man who in his life never
feared the face of man." Where did
John Knox get much of his schooling
for such resounding and everlasting
achievements? He got it while in
chains pulling at the boat's oar in
trench captivity. M'chael Faradav,
one of the greatest in the scientific
world, did not begin by lecturing in
the university. He began by washing
bottles in the experimenting room of
Humphrey Davy. "Hohenlindcn," the
immortal poem of Thomas Campbell,
was first rejected by a newspaper ed

The lines commencing, 'On Linden
when the sun was low,' are not up to
our standard. Poetry is not T. C.'s
forte. Oh! it is a rough road to any
kind of valuable success. So 'he pri
vations and hardships of your life may
on a smaller scale be the preface and
introduction to usefulness and victory.
See also in this call of Moses that
God has a great memory. Four hun
dred years before he had promised the
deliverance of the oppressed Israelites
of Egypt The clock of time has struck
the hour, and now Moses is called to
the work of rescue. Four hundred
years is a very long time, but you see
iiod can remember a promise 400 years
as well as you remember 400 minutes.
Four hundred ycarj includes all your
ancestry that you know anything
about, and all the promises made to
them, and we may expect fulfillment
in our heart and life of all the bless
ings predicted to our Christian ances
try centuries ago. You have a dim re
membrance, if any remembrance at
all, of your great-grandfather, but
God sees those who were on their
knees in 1593 as well as those on their
knees in 1S9S, and the blessing Ho
promised the former and their de
scendants have arrived or will arrive.
While piety is not hereditary, it is a
grand thing to have a pious ancestry.
So God in this chapter calls up the ped
igree of the people whom Moses was to
deliver and Moses is ordered to say to
them: "The Lord God of your fathers,
the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac
and the God of Jacob hath sent me unto
you." If that thought be divinely ac
curate, let me ask, what are we doing
by prayer and by a holy life for the re
demption of the next 400 years? Our
work is not only with the people of
the latter part of thj nineteenth cen
turj but with those in the closing of
the twentieth century, and the closing
of the twenty-first century, and the
closing of the twenty-sicond century,
and the closing of the twenty-third
century For 400 years, if the world
continues to swing until that time, or
if it drops, then notwithstanding the
influence will go on in other latitudes
and longitudes of God's universe.
No one realizes how great he is for
good or for evil. There are branch
ings out and robounds, and reverbera
tions, and elaborations of influence
that can not be estimated. The 50 or
100 years of our earthly stay is only a
small part of our sphere. The flap of
the wing of the destroying angel that
smote the Egyptian oppressors, the
wash of the Red sea over the heads of
the drowned Egyptians, were all ful
fillments of prophecies four centuries
old. And things occur in your life and
in mine that we can not account for.
They may be the echoes of what was
promised in the sixteenth or seven
teenth century. Oh, the prolongation
of the divine memory!
Notice, also, that Moses was 80 years
of age when he got his call to becomo
the Israelitish deliverer. Forty years
he had lived fn palaces as a prince; an
other 40 years he had lived in the wil
dernesses of Arabia, I should not won
der if he had said: "Take a youger man
for this work. Eighty winters have
exposed my health; 80 summers have
poured their heats upon my head; there
are the 40 years that I spent among
the enervating luxuries of a palace
and then followed the 40 years of
wilderness hardship, I am too old.
Let me off. Better call a man in the
forties or fifties, and not one who has
entered upon the eighths." Nevcr-
theljss, he undertook the work and if
we want to know whethcrhe succeeded.
ask the abandoned brick kilns of
Egyptian taskmasters and the splinter
ed chariot wheels strewn on the beach
of the Red sea, and the trimbrels
which Miriam clapped for the Israel
ites passed over the Egyptians gone
under.
Do not retire too early. Like Moses,
j'ou may have j-our chief work to do
after SO. It may not be in the high
places o the field; it may not be where
a strong arm and an athlete foot and a
clear vision are required, but there is
something for you yet to da Perhaps,
it may be to round off the work you
have already done; to demonstrate the.
the patience you have been recom
mending all your lifetime; perhaps to
stand as a lighthouse at the mouth of
the bay to light others into harbor;
perhaps to show how glorious a sunset
may come after a atoraay day.
