A plan whereby ten or twelve
farmers or farm women can form
home classes in agriculture or
domestic science and receive the
text-books, lectures, lantern
slides, labratory and cooking
equipment necessary to conduct
them has been devised by the
United States Department of
Agriculture in co-operation with
Agricultural colleges of certain
The object of the plan is to
make accessible at home to men
and wbmen who have not tirrie or
means to attend the regular
courses at the colleges, practical
short courses in agriculture and
home management specially ad
apted to their districts. These
courses, which will consist of 15
to 20 lectures,, and will consume
five or more weeks, can be ar
ranged to suit the spare time and
convenience of cadi group of
The courses to be offered at first
are poultry raising, fruit growing,
sdils, cheese manufacturing,
dairying, butter making and farm
bookkeeping; and for the women
especially, courses in tli prepar
ation, cooking and use of vege
tables and cereal foods. The De
partment will supply lectures and
lantern slides covering these sub:
jeets, and the States which have
agreed to co-operate in the plan
will lend to each group labora
tory and cooking apparatus val
ued at $100 and a reference
library. The text-books and lec
tures wil be made so complete
that each group can safely ap
point one of its members as study
leader to direct the work of the
When a group has decided to
take up the work, the State
which co-operates sends an agent
with the Departments s repre
sentative to organize a sample
class and assist the leader whom
they elect in laying out the work
and in showing him the best
methods of procedure. The class
es commonly are held from 8:00.
to 12:00 in the morning and from
1:00 to 4:00 in the afternoon, two
or three days each week. The
sessions are held every day, so
that the members will have time
to attend to their farm duties in
between the sessions, as well as
well as before and after the in
struction period. The classes
meet commonly at the most con
venient farmhouse. During the
morning hours, text-book work is
done. In the afternoon labratory
work -is conducted, and the wom
en who have elected to take the
domestic science courses have
practical lessons in cooking.
As soon as a class is establish
ed, the State organizer with
draws to start a class in some
other district. The work there
after is left in charge of the lead
er, who receives assistance by
mail from the college or the De
partment in carrying on the work.
As there .is no regularly paid
instructor, classes can be carried
on all over the State ar rapidly as
the college organizer can visit the
groups, and as quickly as the lab
oratory sets supplied by the col
lege become available. The lo
cal leader will preside during the
reading of the lectures and refer
ences, for which full text-books
and lantern slides are supplied by
tha. Department. He will also be
responsible for the laboratory
equipment. Every one who com
pletes the course will receive a
certificate from the State college.
. Not all of the States have yet
agreed to co-operate in this plan.
Last winter experiments along
these lines were carried out suc
cessfully in Pennsylvania, and
this has stimulated an interest in

' The advantages claimed for the
new home courses with local
leaders and laboratory equipment
over the ordinary correspcond
ence couses is that only a small
percentage of those who take the
individual course finish it. Study
ing in a group, wifh laboratory
work and a leader, seems to
stimulate the interest and aad a
social feature which lead the
members of the group to follow
the work conscientiously and
complete it. Experiments with
free correspondence courses show
that while many individuals gain
advantages from them, many
others, because the material is
furnished free, do not feel the
same obligation to complete them
as they do when they pay a sub
stantial sum of money for the in
struction. Slc cf Ohio. City of Toledo. I

There has been no general pre
cipitation since early May or
April. The showers that have
fallen this summer in Kentucky
have been heavy rains, in some
places, in point of the amount of
water per square inch. But they
have not been general rains, and
while one section of a county or
one county has enjoyed a relief
from drouth, the adjoining sec
tion has remained dry.
What has been needed, and is
still needed, is a general rain of
several days duration. The
deepest springs are showing the
effects of a long continued ab
sence of adequate water supply.
Farms which have an abundance
of good stock water and green
pools in the rock long unfed by
surface water or springs are not
good stock water are very much
the exception to the rule.
Next winter will be a hard one
on owners of stock. Feed will be
high and many farms that arc
abundantly productive in ordi
nary seasons will be short of
grain feed, hay and "roughage."
In many places oats was so short
it had to be cut with a mower be
cause it could not be bound by a
binder, and where there was more
or less, grain there vas very little
straw. Com has been cut short in
many counties, and the farmer
who has plenty of wheat with
which to feed his hogs is in luck
this year.
There is little compensation for
farmers in the fact that live stock
prices are high enough to make it
profitable to sell "stocker" cattle
and stock Jiogs in the market.
This year emphasizes the value
of dairying, poultry, raising and
fruit growing as offsets of crop
shortage in short years. Of
course dairy cattle and poultry
must be fed, but they return a
constant profit, State Journal.

Africa is the second largest
continent in the world.
There arc perhaps 150,000,000
people, of whom, while 50,000,000
arc Mohammedans, not over one
million are Christians. Every
tenth man in the United States is
a black man. Every seventh man
in the world is a black man.

"Nearly one-half of the women
of the world belong tq the great
empires of China and India. The
women conserve the ancient re
ligions and superstitions of t licit
country ; and what can a man do
when the women of the house
hold arc against him?"
During the past generation the
native population of South Africa
has doubled, but the native
Christian population has increas
ed five times.
Sixty years ago there was only
a handful of Christians in tho
Teluga country of India; now
there arc more than 300,000, and
the change has meant a wonder
ful uplift to thf: people.
About a thousand chidlrcn
from Moslem homes arc attend
ing Protestant mission schools in
Persia only one indication of
the tolerance of Mohammedans.
In Africa there are 500 mission
fields, of 10,000 square miles
each, without a single mission
ary. This vast region of 5,000,
000 square miles contains 70,000,-
000 souls.
The Moslems are making vig
orous efforts to win Africa. In
Cairo, Africa, is a Moslem stu
dent body numbering 10,000,
hundreds of whom become mis
sionaries. According to the Missionary
Review of the World, missionary
work has added another method
to its means of support. Mis
sionary trees are established,
when profit goes entirely to mis-
aa . .
sionp. Three instances are given:
A Roxborough farmer has a gol
den pippin apple tree which
helps to support the Chinese mis
sions. A Florida woman has an
orange tree which helps to up
lift the cannibals of New Guinea.
A California nut farmer devotes
a walnut tree to the spcad of
Christianity in Zanzibar.
Nineteen college men have
been presidents of the United
States, and sixteen of the nine
teen have been trained in Chris
tian colleges.
According to some figures by
Dr. T. L. Weber, of Memphis,
Tenn., given in an article re
cently appearing in the New
York Christian Advocate, the
Southern Mehtodist church has
gained in the last quadrennium
168,499 members, and 245,589
Sunday School scholars ; it has
advanced to the sum of $907,714
for miiiinstcrial support, and
$210,790 for missions and church
extcnison; it has gained 767
houses of worship, and has an in-
crcac of 5r5.473.751 in the value
of parsonages and houses of wor
ship. Satan is always very civil to
folks who have money to burn.
