Consumption.
Any one predisposed to Scrofula can
never be healthy and vigorous. This
taint in the blood naturally drifts into
Consumption. Being such a deep-seated
blood disease, Swift's Specific is the
only known cure for Scrofula, because
it is the only remedy which can reach
the disease.
Scrofula apoearpd on the head of my little
grandchild when only 18 months old. Shortly
after breaking out It spread rapidly all over
her body. The scabs on the sores would pee,l
off ou the slightest touch, and the odor that
would crise maae me at
mosphere of the room
sickening and unbearable.
The disease next attacked
the eyes, and we feared she
would lose her sight. Em
inent physicians from the
surrounding country were
consulted, but could do
nothing to relieve the lit
tle Innocent, and gave It
as their opinion that the
case was hom-less and im-
osiible to save the child's eyesight. It was
then that we decided to try Swift's Specific.
That medicine at once made a speedy and com
plete cure. She is now n young lady, and has
never had a sign of the disease to return.

Scrofula is an obstinate blood disease,
and is beyond the reach of the average
blood medicine. Swift's SpeciCc
S.S.S.Blood
is the only remedy equal to such deep
seated diseases; it goes down to tho
very foundation and forces out every
taint. It is purely vegetable, and is
the only blood remedy guaranteed to
contain no mercury, potash or other
mineral substance whatever.

For the July report replies were re
chived from 14S correspondents, repre
senting 1)3 counties.
WHEAT.
Development of the wheat crop dur
5njf the mouth of June shows the fol
lowing- results in the great wheat
growing States of the Mississppi Val
ley: In Ohio and Michigan the crop is
fair, both in yield and qualitj. In
Illinois, Missouri an 1 Kansas the crop
has suffered greatly during June from
rust and chinch bug, and the qua lit
will be poor, owing- to damage from
these sources. The quality is greatly
impaired by the presence of an un
usually large number of smut heads.
Where threshing has bejjun the yield
is very disappointing. In Iowa, Wis
consin and Nebraska winter wheat
varies from very fine in some sections
to poor in others. In these States
hi r.ng- wheat is threatened with rust
owing to the extremely rank growth
of the plant. In Kentucky the excep
tionally Cne showing of June 1st has
not been maintained and the crop is
fully from one-third short of what was
anticipated. 'I he most frequently men'
tione'd cause of damage is rust, which
seems to have been general. The crop
ripened prematurely and the filling is
very imperfect, rarely more than two
Trains to the mesh foeinc found. 'J he
berry is lacking in plumpness, which,
together with the presence of consid
ei able smut, will materially interfere
with quality. In the western scct:on
of the State the crop has been damag
ed by rain since harvest. The estimat
ed average yield per acre for the State
is i:j bushels. In 1SU7 estimate yield
July 1st was 12 bushels and C 3 bush
els for a corresponding date of 1880.
For the western section the yield 13 13
bushels; for the central and eastern it
is 10 and 11 bushels respectively.
CORN.
Favorable weather conditions have
prevailed during June and the corn
crop is now in excellent condition.
The average for the State is 93, an im
provement of four points during the
month. On July 1st, 18S7; the condi
tion was 87. In the western section a
few counties, including Union, Web
ster, Caldwell and Trigg, report the
crop suffering for want of cultivation
which has been interfered with by ex
cessive rainfall In the central section
the drouth has been relieved in those
counties along the northern border
and the crop is fast regaining lost
ground from this source. Taking the
State by sectious the conditions are:
For the Western, 93; Central, 90, and
Eastern, 100; each being an improve
ment during June.
OATS.
The condition of the oat crop is 85
for the State as against 91 on June 1st.
On July 1st, 18D7, the condition was 80.
The crop has improved in the central
and about held its own in the eastern
section, but in the western section it
has fallen off from 90 on June 1st to 71
on July 1st.
TOBACCO.
The acreage of tobacco compared
with 1897 is 123 per cent, or 237,038
acres for the State. Ihe eastern sec
tion report the greatest increase, viz:
30 per cent. In the western section
the acreage is increased 23 per cent,
while in the central the increase is but
9 per cent The condition of the crop
shows an average of 92 for the entire
State. July 1st, 1897, the condition
was 08, and on same date of 1696 the
condition was 92. In the western sec
tion the crop is, to some extent, foul.

present condition of 93. In the central
section the crop is very spotted and
the stand is poor. 'J he first setting is
growing nicely, but the replant seems
to be getting a poor start, which gives
the crop a ragged appearance. Here
the condition compared with an aver
age is but 81. In these counties of the
eastern section where a crop is grown
the condition appears excellent with a
greatly increased acreage.
HEMP.
The condition as hemp crop is SO as
compared with average years. On July
1st,. 1897, the condition was 87 as for a
corresponding date of 1S9G it was 80.
MEADOWS AKD PASTURES.
The acreage of clover meadows cut
as compared with 1897 is 97. The yield
both as to quantity and quality is
good O timothy meadows the acre
age as compared with 1817 is 94. The
3'ieltl is light and the qu: lit of much
of it is poor, owing to the presence of
weeds. Pastures are most excellent,
the condition being- 99. Live stock is
in satisfactory condition. The demand
for stock ewes has greatly increased,
and farmers are turning their atten
tion largely to sheep breeding.

IIKALTIIinJL AMUSEMENT
It is Essential to ihe Making of a
Healthful Christian.
From an unusual standpoint Dr.Tal
ma'e. in this discourse discusses
amusements and applies tests b
which they may be known us good or
had. The ti'St is Judges xvi.. "J.V. "And
it eainu to p:iss, when their hearts
were merry, that they said, 'call for
Samson, that lit! may make ns sport'
And they called for Samson out of
Ihe priNon lions; and he made them
-.p.M.l '
'I hero wore ".000 people assembled
in the temple of Dagon. They had
coiiu- to make sport of eyeless samson.
TUv.y were :ill ready .or the entertain
ment They bcnn to clap and pound,
impatient for the amusement to begin,
and they cried, Fetch h.in out! Fetch
him out!" Yonder 1 see tho blind old
riant coming, led by the hand of a
child into the very midst of
the temple. At bis liist ap
pearance there goes up a
shout of laughter and derision. The
blind old k'iant. pretends he is tired
and wants to rest himself against the
pillars of the house, so he says to the
lad who leads him, "llring me. where
Urn main pillars are." The lad does
mi. Then the. strong man put his
hands on one of the pillars, and, with
the mightiest push that mortal ever
made, throws himself forward until
the whole bouse comes down in
thunderous crash, grinding the audi
enee like grapes in a wine press. "And
so it came to pass, when their hearts
were merry, that they said. Call for
Samson, that lie may make us sport
And they called for Samson out of the
prison house; and he made them
.sport" lu other words, there arc
amusements that are destructive and
bring down disaster and death upon
the heads of those who practice them.
While they laugh and cheer, they die.
The three thousand who perished that
day in Caza are nothing compared
with the tens of thousands who have
been destroyed, body, mind and soul,
by bad amusements and by good
amusements carried to excess.
In my sermons you must have noticed
that 1 have no smpathy with ecclesi
astical straitjackets, or with that
wholesale denunciation of amusements
to which many are pledged. I believe
the church of God has made a tre
mendous mistake in trying to suppress
the sportfnlness of youth and drive
out from men their love of amuse
ment If God ever implanted any
thing in us He implanted this desire.
But instead of providing for this de
mand of our nature the church of God
has for the niain part igjioredit As

m a not tho mayor plants a'-battcry at
the end of riio street audiias it tired
off, so that everything ia cut down
that happens to stand in fJie range,
the goo.l as well as the ba.d, so there
are men in the church who plant their
batteries of condemnation and lire
away indiscriminately. Everything is
condemned. They talk as if they
would like to have our youth dress in
blue uniform, like the children of an
orphan asylum, ami march down the
path of life to the tune of the "Dead
March" in Saul. Thej hate a blue
sash, or a rosebud in the hair, or a tas
seled gaiter, and think a man almost
ready for the lunatic asylum who ut
ters a conundrum.
Young Men's Christian associations
of the country are doing a glorious
work. They have fine reading rooms,
and all the influences are of the best
kind, and are now adding gymnasi
ums and bowling alleys where, with
out any evil surroundings our 3oung
men may get physical as well as spir
itual iratrovement We are dwindling
away to a narrow-chested, weak-armed,
feeble-voiced race, when God calls us
to a work in which lie wants physical
as well as spiritual athletes. I would
to God that the time might soon come
when all our colleges and theological
seminaries, as at Princeton, a g3mna
sium shall be established. We spend
seven years ot hard study in prepara
tion for the ministry, and come out
with bronehitis and dyspepsia, and
liver complaint and then crawl np
into the pulpit, and the" people say,
"Doesn't he look heavenly?" because
he looks sickly. Let the church of
God direct, rather than attempt to
suppress, the desire for amusement
The best, men that tlte world ever
knew have had their sports. William
Wilberforca trundled hoop with his
children. Martin Luther helped dress
the Christmas tree. Miuiaters have
pitched quoits, philanthropists have
gone a-skating. Prime ministers have
played ball.
(.ur communities are filled with men
and women who have in their souls un
measured resources for spcrtfulness
and frolic. Show me a man who never
lights up with sportfulncss. and has
no sympathy with the recreations of
others, tin I I will show you a man who
is a stumbiing block to the Kingdom
of God. Such men are caricatures of
religion.
They lead young people to think
that a man is good in proportion as he
groans and frowns and looks sallow,
and that the height of a man's Chris
tian stature is in proportion to the
length of his face. I would trade off
500 such men for one bright-faced, rad
iant Christian on whose face arc the
words, "Rejoice evermore!" Every
morning by his cheerful face he
preaches 50 sermona I will go further
and say that 1 have no confidence in a
man who makes a religion of his
gloomy looks. That kind of a man al
ways turns out badlv. I would not
want him for the treasurer of an or
phan asylum. The orphans would
suffer.
Among 40 people whom I received
into the church at one communion,
there was onlv ona applicant of whose
nietv I was suspicious. He had the
longest story to tell; had seen the most
visions, and gave an experience
wonderful that all the other applicants
were discouraged. I was not surpris
ed the year after to learn that he had
run off with the funds of the bank
with which he was connected. Who is
this black angel that you call religion
wings black, feet black, feathers
black? Our religion is a bright angel
feet bright, e3es bright, wings
bright, taking her place in the soul.
She pulls a rope that readies to the
skies and sets all the bells of Heaven
a-clmning. I here are some persons
who, when talking to a minister, al
wa3s feel it politic to look lugubrious
Go forth, O people, to your lawful
amusement. God means you to Lt
V.;ppy. But, when there are so many
timrces of iunoceLt pleasure, why
Tamper with anything that is danger
ins and polluting? Why stop our ears
;o a Heaven full of songsters to the
hiss of dragon? Why turn back from
the mountain side all abloom with
wild llowers and a iash with tbc nim
ble torrents, and with blistered feet
attempt to climb the Tiot sides of Coto
paxi? Now, all opera houses, theaters,
bowling alleys, skating rinks and all
:tyles of amusement, good and bad, I
put on trial to-day and judge of them
for certain cardinal principal-;. First,
yon may judge of aii3 amusement by
its healthful result or by its baneful
luaelion. There are people who seem
made up of hard facts. They are aeoiu
bination of multiplication tables and
statistics. If you whow them uu ex
quisitu picture they will begin
to dibcuss the pigments involved
In the coloring; If you show them a
beautiful rose they will submit it to
a botanical analysis, which is'only the
post-mortem examination of a llowc-r.
They never do an3'thiug more than
feebly smile. . There are no great tides
of feeling surging up from the deptli
of their soul in billow after billow of
reverlieratiug laughter. They seem as
if Nature had built them by contract
and made a bungling job out of
it Hut, blessed be God, there arp
people in the world who have bright
faces and whose life is a song,
an anthem, a paeau of victory. Ev
en their troubles are like the vines
that ciawl up the side of a great
lower, on the. top of which the suiif
light sits and the soft airs of summer
hold perpetual curnival. Tliuj' are the
people 3'ou like to have cotne to your
house; they are the people I like to
have come to my house. Now, it is
these exhi la rant and sympathetic, and
warm-hearted people that are most
tempted to pernicious amusements.
In proportion as a ship is swift it
wants a strong helmsman; in propor
tion as a horse is gay it wants
a strong driver; and these people
of exuberant nature will do well
to look at the reaction of all
their amusements. If an amuse
ment sends 3-011 home at night ner
vous so 3ou can not sleep, and you
rise in the morning, not because you
are slept out, but because your duty
drags you from slumbers, you have
been where 3'ou ought not to have
been. There are amusements that
send a man next day to his work
bloodshot, yawning,stupfd, nauseated,
and they are wrong-kinds of amuse
ments. There are entertainments that
give a man disgust with the drudgery
of life, with tools because they are not
swords, with working aprons because
they are not robes, with cattle because
they are not infuriated bulls of the
arena If any amusement sends you 1
home longingfor a life of romance arid '
thrilling adventure, love that takes
poison and shoots itself, moonlight ad-
venture and hairureadth escapes, you
may depend upon it that yon are tho
sacrificed victimof unianctifled pleas
nre. Our rvorcatlons are SntenJed to
build uu up. and if they pull tu down,
as to our moral or our physical
strength, you may come to the conclu
sion that they are obnoxious.
Still further: Those amusements
are wrong which lead into expenditure
bej-ond your means. Money spent in
n creation is not thrown away. It is
all foil for us to come from a place of
amusement feeling that we have wast
ed our money and time. You may by
it have' made an investment worth
more than the transaction that yield
ed 3'ou S100 or Sl.OJO But how many
properties have been riddled by costly
amusements? The table has been
robbed to pay the club. The cham
pagne has cheated the children's
wardrobe. The carousing party has
burned up the boy's primer. The table
cloth of the corner saloon jsindebt
to the wife's faded dress. Excursions
that in a day make, a tour around a
whole month's wages; ladies whose
lifetime business it is to "go shopping"
have their counterpart in uneducated
children, bankruptcies that shock the
money market and appall the church,
and that send drunkenness staggering
across the richl3' figured carpet of the
mansion and dashing into the mirror,
and drowning out the carol of music
with the whooping of bloated sons
come home to break their old mother's
heart When men go into amusements
that they can not afford they first bor
row what the3' can not earn, and then
they steal what they can not borrow.
First they go into embarrassment and
then into theft, and when a man gets
as far on as that he'does not stop short
of the penitentiai-y. There is not
prison in the land where there are not
victims of unsanctified amusements.
How often I have had parents come to
me and ask me to go and beg their boy
off from the consequence of crimes
that he had committed against his em
plo3'er the taking of funds out of the
employer's till, or the disarrangements
of the accounts! ihy, he had salary
enough to pay all lawful expenditure,
but not enough salary to meet his siu
nil amusements. Ana again and again
I have gone and implored for the
young man sometimes, alas! the peti
tion unavailing.
How brightly the path of unre
strained amusement opens! The3oung
man says: "ftow I am off for a good
time. Never mind cconom3; I'll get
mone3 somehow. What a fine road!
What a beautiful day for a ride! Crack
the whip and over the turnpike! Come,
boys, fill high t our glasses! Brink!
Long life, health, plenty of rides just
like this!" Hard-working men hear
the clatter of the hoofs and look up
and say, ''Wliv, I wonder where
those fellows get their money from,
We have to toil and drudge. They
do nothing. lo these ga3- men life
is a thrill and an excitement The
stare at other people and in turn are
stared at The watch chain jingles,
The cup foams. The cheeks flush, the
es'es flash. The midnight hears their
guffaw. They swagger. They jostle
decent men off the sidewalk. Tl
take the name of God in vain. Tliev
parod3' the li3'mn they learned at their
mother's knee; and to all pictures of
coming disaster they cr3 out, "Who
cares!" and to the counsel of some
Christian friend, "Who are 3'ou?" Pass
ing along the street some night -ou
hear a shriek in a grog shop,
the rattle of a watchman's
club, the rush of the police. What
is the matter now? Oh, this rce
less j-oung man has been killed in
grog-shop fight Carr3 him home to
his father's house. Parents will come
down and wash his wounds and close
his eyes in death. The3 forgive him
all he ever did, though he can not in
his silence ask it The prodigal has
got home at last. Mother will go tt:
her little garden and get the sweetes;
Cowers and twist them into a chaplet
for the silent heart of the wayward
Doy and push back from the bloated
brow the lopg locks that were ouca
ier pride, A'nd the air will be rent
Arith the father's cr3-: "Oh, my son,
ny son, nrj- poor son; would God I had
lied for thee, oh, my son, my son!''
You ma3 judge of amusements by
iheir effect upon ph3'sical health. The
seed of many good people is ph3"sical
recuperation. There are Christian
men who write. hard things against
their immortal souls when there is
nothing the matter with them but an
ncompetent liver. There are Christian
people who seem to think that it is a
-food sign to be poorh-, and because
liichard Baxter and Robert Hall were
;nvalids tliC3' think that by the same
sickness they ma3' come to the same
frandeur of character. I want to tell
Christian people that God will hold
you responsible for your invalidism if
it is 3our own fault, and when through
right exercise and prudenoe 3tqu might
be athletic and well, The effect of tho
bo.ly upon the soul you acknowledge.
Put a man of mild disposition upon
the animal diet of which the Indian
partakes, and in a little while his
blood will change its chemical propor
tions. It will become like unto the
blood of the lion or the tiger or the
bear, while his disposition will change
and become fierce, cruel and unrelent
ing. The body has a powerful ef
fect upon the soul. There are peo
ple whose ideas of Heaven are all
shut out with clouds of tobacco
smoke. There are people who dare-to
shatter the ph3-sical vase in which
God put the jewel of eternity. There
are men with great hearts and intel
lects in bodies worn out by their own
neglects. Magnificent maohinery
capable of propelling a great Etruria
across the Atlantic, yet fastened in a,
rickety Jsorth river propeller. Phy
sical development which merely shows
itself in a fabulous lifting, or in peril
ious rope walking, or in pugilistic en
counter, excites only our contempt,
but we confeis to great admiration for
the man who has a great soul in an
athelctie body, every nerve, mus
cle and bone of which is
consecrated to right uses. Oh,
it seems to me outrageous that men,
through neglect should allow theijf
physical health to go down beyond re
pair; spending the rest of their life
not in some great enterprise for God
and the world, but in stud3ing what
Is the best thing to take for dyspepsia.
A ship which ought with all sails set
and every man at his post to be carry-,
ing a rich cargo for eternity, employ
ingall its men in stopping up Ieak
ages! When you may through some:
of the popular and healthful recrea
tions of our time work off your

you very near together in that dj-ing
kiss; b3 the little grave in the eemc
tery that j'ou never thinlc
of without a rush of tears;
by the family Bible, where in its
stories of heavenly love is the brief
but expressive record of births and
deaths; by the neglects of tho past and
by the agonies of the future; by a
judgment day, when husbands and
wives, parents and children, in immor
tal groups, stand to be caught up
in shining array, or to shrink down
into darkness by all that I beg you to
give to your home your best affections.
I look in your e3'cs to-da', and 1 ask
3-ou the question that Geh'azi asked of
the Shunammite: "Is it well w ith thee?
Is it well with thy husband? Is it
well with thy child?'" God grant that
it may be everlastingly well!
