Nor does the church advise or encourage unlawful cohubi tation on the part of any of its men bers.

The than heretofore, as more room is noiv and small, in the greenhouses. Outou The ' ways pleasing in the past, promise to become much more beautiful in the future. At the stake conference of the Y. L. M. 1. A., held in tlie Tabernacle last week, President Joseph F. Smith de livered the principal address. He said: "Tliou shall not commit adultery. The crime of adultery under the an cient law of God in Israel was punish able by death, the same as the crime of murder. Of course, some people say that the Latter-day Saintsare proverb .... , • al m the world for adultery, but men have been and are today ao ignorant that they cannot perceive or under j stand that thereisa difference between , that which God sanctions and approves I and that which he denounces aud con derans. They claim that even Abraham l>avid and the ancient prophets oi Cut, tow horn God gave wives, were as much adulterers as those who practice ; polygamy and ajlu ery having wives and childieo at home. I There is a vast difference between these, and I want to say it to tlie world, j that there is not a people on the face of God's earth who abhor the crime of ; adultery as do the Latter-day Saints, > dural wives and man lages in the past. "I can pomt out to you men whom I ! have known from my childhood, and 'hoin I have been as intimate as j my brother, and I will affirm to you i that th«*s<* men have never in their lives transgressed the law of chastity as God Almighty revealed it, and yet they have had mare than one wife. And I want to tell you that the man that stands before the world and says that Im never wronged a woman, is a man after God's own heart, in relation to that thing, at least. He is pure and he is moral in tlie sight of God, because j he lias done no other thing except that j which he believes in uis soul and in his | heart, according to the intelligence that he possesses, that God has sanc tioned and approved. And us to his intelligence, it will compare with the brightest intellects in tlie world. As to their moral conception of character, it will compare favorably with that of any living preacher. They are not ignoramuses. They understand the laws, the precepts and the power of God, and they know that whomsoever God hath joined together, r.ien cannot put asunder. Neither can time, nor distance, nor death. For when God hath joined men aud women together, it is not for time alone, but for time and all eternity, too, for the Lord Al mighty does not deal with us for time alone, and the Lord Almighty asks nothing of us except that which he has obeyed himself." ■ itli . to Christ "Th.

There are certain forms of animal life which perish at the touch of the sunshine. And so Christ's love within- us destroys that which is Impure and ignoble and unlovely, and life becomes a dally glorifying of Him who is our life and comfort today, and who has promised more abundant life and blessedness in the world to come. FA BM AND GARDEN. MATTERS OF INTEREST TO AGRICULTURISTS. ?om« l T p>to-Pate Hint« About Cul tivation of the Soil aud TleUli Thereof—Horticulture, Viticulture aud Floriculture. Horticultural Observation«. The question of whether bees punc ture giapes has been discussed from j tarious standpoints for a good many j fears, and the conclusions leached by : most thinkers and investigators on the j subject are that bees do not puncture i grapes, hut suck the Juice of grapes I ^ nIy " ftçr ,hev hav e burst open or bitten by blrd3 ' , Prof ' R ' T " y ' lor of the Michigan Experiment ata tlon has conducted some experiments that would seem to put the question at rest. His observations were that the bees worked only on the Delaware and Lady grapes, varieties that burst open badly in wet seasons. Prof. Tay lor placed 1.000 sacks on clusters of thirteen different varieties of grapes bo that the bees could not get at them. Toward the close of the experiment it was found that the grapes inclosed in sacks were suffering more than those that were left uncovered, aud many of the grapes had burst open. The ex perimenter concluded that the sucking away of the Juice of the grapes by the bees is a direct benefit rather than an injury, in that these Juices are pre vented from flowing upon sound grapes, and thus increasing the amount of the injury by the cracking of the skin. The question of reforesting burned over areas is of importance to all in terested in forestry and incidentally in horticulture. When large areas are I burned over it takes many years to j cover them with anything, even with : grasses. When a small space only Is ! covered, the heat is not so Intense as ! to destroy all plant germs in the soil. but in the case of great fires even the fertility, with all seeds in the soil, is destroyed. Some recent investigations in Colorado showed that regions that \. „ . . . , , , ! had been burned over in 1881 had not begun ^ ghow any klnd of treft growtb ! till six years afterward, and' that thir j teen years afterward small pines only ! were found, and though these trees were found on investigation to be j «even years old, they ''«d attained a height of only twenty inches. To fully comprehend what this means one : 3hould »easure oft twenty inches in height from any object—the floor or ! ground—and remember that this so represents seven years of so g roW £h.

The blooms obtained from these bulbs are exceptionally fine and well de veloped, and are ready for the market two weeks earlier than those raised the mainland. About 400 tulip and hyacinth bulbs are now planted in Lincoln park, Chi cago, which have been sent there Mr. Gibbs from Washington, and their development is being watched with much interest by those In charge. E. JACOBSON. Preserving Fence Pont«. The lime treatment Is aB good any, and the cheapest. The only fect of an antiseptic for preserving Umber is to remove the acids of the wood, and to fill the cells with an destructible mineral deposit, thus pre venting decay, says H. S. in Rural New with the various timber greservaUves for use In such special cases, as mines, and for bridges, I have not learned of any material better than common lime. It has been found effective in this way, that ships are now in exirtence and seaworthy every way, which are over a century old, and have been all that time carry ing lime as their principal cargoes. Timber has been found in ancient buildings, perfectly sound after cen turies of burial in lima or cement mortar. From some experience, 1 am «atisfied that the lime treatment, sim of , and of There which and dally and in Yorker. After much practice pi« end cheap as It is. Is equally effec tive as the various other treatments by much more expensive materials. How to Use It.—My method has been to saturate the timber which has been put into bridges, cross ties on rail roads, and in mines 'or posts, in hot lime in this way: A pit is dug large enough to hold a convenient lot »£ posts set on end. tresh quicklime is laid in the bottom six inches deep. The timber is laid or set on end in this pit —for fence posts, this way is most convenient. The spacc3 between the posts are tilled with the small broken lime, room being left for the lime to | swell as it slakes, and when the pit is filled, water is thrown on to slake the lime into a paste, as if for mortar. The lime, in expanding, fills in tightly be- | tween the po3ts, and making a great hcat, drives the moisture out of the timber, and seasons it. Water is added as the lime slakes, until it is a semi liquid mass. Then as the lime and the heated timber cool, the vacuum created : in the timber by the previous heoting, | Is immediately filled by the lime water, I and the cellulose, with all the acids which are neutralized in this way, be comes mineralized, and decay of the timber is prevented. There 1 b noth ing new in this way, any more than there was in the advice given to the leper to "go wash and be clean. 1 * But It is quite as effective a way as any of the more costly chemical methods of treating timber to increase its durabil ity or prevent its decay. Of course, it is necessary to immerse the posts in the pit deep enough to treat them as far as, or something more than, the timber will be set in the ground, and the timber should he stripped of the bark. by the or y ' of it in of ex the an pre the Carpet «ira««.

It is easily de stroyed by plowing and never becomes a weed. It rarely grows large enough to be cut for hay, though on the prai ries of southwestern Louisiana, where it is known as "petit gazon," it reaches a height of two feet or more and covers a large part of the native meadows. The seed is rarely found in the market, but the plant is easily propagated by mowing when the seed is ripe aud scattering the hay over the flold where the grass 16 wanted. Even if but few plants should appear the first year, the seed will soon be spread by stock so as to cover the entire field. It bears heavy frost without injury, and so affords considerable grazing during the winter. It is often used as the Juan lawn grass on soils too light and sandy for Bermuda, and Is excellent for that purpose, though Its rather light color makes it less attractive than a grass having a richer green. all phe the unusual seven bulbs de market on large areas of drifting sands along coasts and also about the Great Lake* and along some of our larger rivers, which, because of their unstable char* acter, are a serious menace to life and property, could in many cases be re claimed and converted into valuable pasture and meadow lands. The study nf the grasses suitable for binding these sands has been extended along the Atlantic coast as far south as Florida, also to various points on the Paclflc coast and along the Columbia River in Washington and Oregon, Scveral native sand binders of great promise have been discovered, and thelr utilization in a practical way has been undertaken.

Jefferson county, Wls., madr a*.', sold over 6,000,000 pounds of «utter A Oiwl BoMImu Dairy Sham in St Petersburg, Russia, last month, gives an interesting account of It In "Maeikeritldende," from which I cull the following facts: The show waa in a large building 600 feet long and 124 feet wide, there were about 800 entries of butter, of which 216 were for export and were judged by foreign Judges, while the balance were Judged by Rus slans.

I and in the United States, taking cen sus of 1890, we fiud 82 head, of which ! 26 arc milch cows. Most of the cowai in Russia are very poor indeed, the average yearly milk yield is placed at about 1,650 pounds, or for every inhab itant only 135 pounds, while In Den mark it is about 1,870 pounds. The total value of Russia's butter export la placed at a little over 12,800,000. As to the quality it varied greatly, it There was a good deal really fine but ter, but also much poor stuff, which showed that the Russian taste was dlf J. H. Monrad, writing in the New York Produce Review, say«: The Dan ish dairy counselor, Mr. Boggiid. who was Invited as Judge to the dairy show latter there were only a few entries. There are about 37 ü million cattle In Russia, which is only 29 head (of in Sweden, 51 head (35 cows); In Swit ferent from that of western Europe. The export butter was packed In fir kins of beech, ash, elm and other kinds of wood, but parchment paper was used In all. About 70 per cent of this butter was "extra" or nearly so, while 30 P er cent was "tallowy," "oily" or j "rancid," but nearly all had a good "body." The butter for home market was shown in large or small boxes, firkins and even in hollow logs (!) 1 twelve to fourteen Inches long and tea It to twelve inches In diameter with or without iron hoops. Yet parchment | paper was used In all. About 250 entries were what must be called sweet cream butter, the cream evidently having been heated to a high 1 temperature and not ripened after* j ward, and it was partly without salt, partly very lightly salted. This waa chiefly Intended for St. Petersburg and I Moscow. A cooked flavor seemed to be deemed a virtue. Preserving stamina In Live Stock. By stamina we mean health, vigor, i constitution, vitality, endurance, "get : there." In improved breeding there 1» always danger of decreasing vitality, says Wallace's Farmer. We can push development along any line about so far when weakness of constitution fol lows, and the usefulness of the animal Is imperiled. We can, 'for example, push butter and milk production to a wonderful extent, but the death rate among cows that give the phenomenal ! yields is astonishing. The constitution cannot stand this tremendous pressure, and milk fever or tuberculosis take» the queens of the dairy. The cow can he pushed to 300 or 400 pounds of butter per year, provided she is well fed and kept in a well-ventilated baru, but the danger line lies very near that high point.
