OF MOTHERHOOD and of the the of rise evil E nhance d By Perfect Phy*» cal Health. The experience of Motherhood is a try ing one to most women and marks dis tinctly an epoch in their lives. Not woman in a hundred is prepared or un derstands how to properly care for her oelf. Of course nearly every woman nowadays has medical treatment at sash timea, but many approach the experi ence with an organism unfitted for the trial of strength, and when It is over her system has received a shock from which it is hard to recover. Following right upon this comes the nervous strain of caring for the child, and a distinct change in the mother results. There is nothing more charming tb»« •happy and healthy mother of children, and indeed child-birth under the right conditions need be no hazard to health or beauty. The nnexplainabie thing is that, with all the evidence of shattered nerves and broken health resulting from an unprepared condition, and with am ple time in which to prepare, women will persist in going blindly to the trial. Every woman at this time should rely upon Lydia E. Pinkbam's Vegetable Compound, a most valuable tonic and invigorator of the female organism. an as ls many homes Wi m once childless there •re now children be cause of the fact thnt Lydia E.

CwboM»» Wat- Bank 1,680 Much hat been «aid on the subject of dress since the days of the ancients and one cannot help but com pare the fashions of tods; with the dross of 2,000 years ago. They of the era before Christ spot* chitons reaching down to the feet and only a little pulled up at the girdle. It was a very large, oblong piece of woven cloth equal to about one and one-half lengths of the body. The overhanging part of the cloth was folded around the chest and back from the neck downward, the upper edge being arranged around the neck and the two open corners clasped together on one shoulder. On the open aide, therefore, the naked body was visible. Often the dresses were transparent. These diaphanous dresses clinging close to the body and allowing the color of the skin and veins to be seen, have been frequently imitated with aston ishing skill by Greek sculptors and painters. This all belonged to antiquity. Many persons are agreed that there is nothing more beautiful than a woman's figure, but civilization has demanded a covering for this beauty. If we admit such a thing as lasciviousness of drees, then the trans parent bodices and diaphanous skirts of today must be wrong, and, being wrong, their effect must be bad. If the women could hear the ugly remarks to which their attire gives rise they might eliminate the aforementioned detriments to good morals. Their plea would no doubt be that the evil remarks emanate only from evil minds and that the higher male looks on with approval. But docs he ? Can that which debases the morals of the one elevate those of the Dress in Ancient and Modem Times By B. W. HUGHEY, _ other? I do not wish to see women back in wider skirts, for I lay claim to an artistic temperament, and the style of the skirt today is, in my opinion, as pretty aa it ever was. My only concern is for the youth of today, and I plead that dress suggestiveness be rigidly tabooed by those women who have allowed them selves to become the slaves of fashion. The word "religion" may mean anything which is con ducted as a religious cere mony, but the word "Chris tianity," according to the teachings of Christ himself, includes only a life of love to God and love to man. He himself said : "The first and greatest com mandment is, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart" and "The second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself," and he added, "On these two commandments hang all the Jaw and the prophets." This is equivalent to saying that if we love God as we should and love our neighbor as ourselves we will fulfill the law of the prophets, and this is absolutely true, for the first four commandments of Moses include duty to God and the others duty to our fellows. If we do love God as we should we will observe the first four naturally, as we will obey the others if we do love our neighbors as we love ourselves. The golden rule was Christ's interpretation of the law, for when he said, "Whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye so unto them," he added, "For this is the law and the prophets," and he illas trated this by his own life and death of love. As the Apostle Paul put it : "Love is the fulfilling of the law, for love worketh no ill to his neighbor." So we can sum true Christianity up in one short, sweet, simple word, easily understood by any and by all—love. Love is the law of life. The life of love is the life of heaven. The loveless life is the life of the lost.. The life of hate is the life of hell, here and hereafter. Cl Christianity Is Love Which Saves World •a The servant problem is going to be one of the most difficult facing the people of this country in a few years. The Chinese and Japanese make the best kind of serv ants. In every foreign household in China and in those of the Chinese upper class the servants are men of the so-called "coolie" class. Persons in circumstances that could not be called affluent keep half a dozen servante, and the housewives and girls of the family never think of doing any of the household work. Chinese women act as nurses for the younger children and it is remarkable how faithful they are to their charges. I have seen a Chinese woman nurse defend her little one against the punishment of its mother and take the lashes that were intended for the child. Servant Problem i Japan and China in By ALFRED THOMSON, Saa Francisco Notwithstanding the conditions which have made it difficult for tho lower Chinese to rise, there are notable instances of servants who have become famous and influential in China. The greatest difficulty in this country, I have observed, is to get servants who are satisfied to remain servants for any length of time. In a free country, where all the people are entitled to the same liberties, it doesn't take the servant long to bcome imbued with the idea that she is out of place and she seizes the first chance to quit. I believe we should import all of our servants from either China or Japan, and for a long time to eome, if this could be brought about, the American household would not have to struggle with the question of get ting servants. Slowly but steadily tho world is progressing. Igno rance, superstition and fear are giving way to knowl edge, hope and faith. More people today than ever before realize that vio lation of natural laws is always punished and that the punishment is exactly commensurate with the transgression. This truth is as universal as are the laws themselves. It applies to every side of the nature of man—mental, moral, spiritual and physical. All the laws of nature serve one great law—the law of compensation. Man, to gain his highest estate, must apprehend this law, and, appre hending it, he must govern himself accordingly. He must keep the law inviolate or suffer the penalty of its violation. Today medical science is seeking a cure for cancer in the emanations of radio-active substances. The experiments with radian, it is claimed, have been more or less successful. But more time and energy should be devoted to determining the cause of cancer. Like every other abnormal condition, cancer is the result of infraction of natural law. When it is determined when, where and how the law wa$ violated the cause of cancer will be known and its prevention and cure more readily understood and accomplished. €| Punishment for Violation of Natural Laws ByCHUGHES JENNINGS, Detroit.

TEN ESSENTIALS IN GROWING ALFALFA fe", v Baling Alfalfa Hsy Direct From Windrow on 1,40GAcro Farm Near Sh ei Us In to (Prepared by the Untied mates Depart ment of Agriculture.) Alfalfa, one of tha oldest and most widespread of crops, can be grown In this country as far as climate Is concerned. In every state, but In the humid sections It Is very exacting In the character of soil and treatment required The following llat.of "don't«." published by the Ü. 8. department of agriculture tn Farmers' Bulletin No. 339 will, therefore, be of Intereet: Ten Don'ta for the Alfalfa Grower. Don't fall to provide for ample In oculation. Don't sow poor or weedy seed. Don't sow on a weedy soil. Don't sow on any but a «west, well timed soil. Don't sow on poorly drained soli. Don't sow on any but a finely-pre pared, well-settled seed bed. Don't pasture the first or second year. Don't lose the leaves; they consti tute the best part of the hsy. Don't seed a large acreage to be gin with. Experiment on a small area first. Don't give up. Many prominent al falfa growera finally aucceeded only after many failures. The first essential, as these "don'ta" show, la proper toll, well-drained soil, rich In time and reasonably free from weeda la Indis pensable, and it Is useless to attempt to grow alfalfa on any other kind of land. The lack of any one of these qualities Is very apt to be the cause of failure especially In the East and South, where at beat alfalfa la pro duced with some difficulty. The plant la a deep-feeding one and usually sends Its roots down many feet to obtain food and moisture which are out of reach of the ahallow On soli that lacks A deep, fertile. The summer stands are very apt to win terkllL In general, the principle un derlylng the time of seeding Is to sow ss far In advance as possible of what promises to be the most trying season for the young plants. In the East and South a late summer seeding Is usually best. This enables an earlier crop to be removed from the land and gives alfalfa ample time to make a growth before the winter aets In; a fact which gives the plants a good atari In the following spring, and aids them successfully to resist the Inroad of weeds. Thai conditions that determine the time for seeding alfalfa Indirectly de termine also the crops which should precede It. Where late summer seed ing Is practiced a truck crop which matures early will enable one crop to be secured that season and still allow time for the preparation of the land for alfalfa. Under such clrcexn^ stances the fertilizer demande 1 by the truck crop will probably be suffi cient for the alfalfa. Another method which has the advantage of ridding the soil of weeds, although It la not ao economical In Its use of land. Is to plant a clean-culture crop, such aa corn, cotton or tobacco These crops also require heavy applications of manure, and the culture given them will destroy any weeds that may have been Introduced with the manure. Ordinarily It Is Impossible to get these crops off the land In time for late summer seeding of alfalfa and it Is consequently good practice to seed a green manure crop, such as hairy vetch or clover, which can be cut for hay In the following spring, the stub ble plowed under and the land then prepared for alfalfa. The efficiency of green manure crops tn Increasing the humus content of the soil makes them especially val-! uable as a preliminary crop for ai falfa. If the soil la not fertilised tn this way, or does not obtain tfce bene fit of manure used for previous cesh crops, well-rottei barnyard manure or commercial fertilizers must be em ployed If the best results are hoped for. It must always be borne In mind that alfalfa requires .-ich soil. It can not be grown on any kind of land that happens to lie bandy fur the farmer. On the other hand, with proper conditions and care Its yield will be sufficient to justify the use of the richest and best drained lar on the farm. In the East It ts usually heat to develop the fertility of some of the high, rotting land and seed rooted crops, depth alfalfa ts unable to utilize Its deep-feeding roots and Is, therefore, less able to withstand the attack of surface-feeding weeds. An exception to this seems to be found In the case of soils that are underlaid by lime stone at a depth of aome eighteen Inches or two feet. Weeds are, tn fact, one of the greatest enemies of alfalfa, young planta are very tender and are apt to be killed during their early stages of growth. For this reason It Is good practice to raise some culti vated crop on the ground for two or three seasons before alfalfa la plant ed. If this Is not practicable some such crop as cowpeas, which natural ly prevent the growth of weeda, can be seeded. Alfalfa sown In the spring Is especially susceptible to harm from weeds, and spring seeding, there fore. should be avoided wherever pos sible. It Is. however, preferable In Minnesota, Wisconsin and the Da kotas where any but spring or early to that. Bottom lands should be avoid ed; not only to the danger from weeda on such soils greater, but alfalfa ab aolutely requires well-drained land. he Overflow« from streams are usually fatal to It during Us growing pe riod. In fact, It ta unusual for It to eurrtve more than 24 hours of com plete submergence, although during Us dormant period In the winter It It less susceptible. Not the least difficulty that the al falfa grower muet face Is the neces sity for thorough Inoculation of the soli In regions where the proper bac teria «re :iot supplied by nature. Throughout the western halt of the United States Inoculatlo 1 In general does not appear to be necessary, but In the Rast the grower who neglects this precaution la practically certain to lose hla time. Thar» are two methods now In general uaa. The bacteria may b» supplied either by scelterlng the soil from a successful alfalfa field, or by cultures The ar tificial cultures sre supplied by the United States department of agricul ture and their use explained In detail In tho printed matter which accom panies the bottle of culture. After being mixed with the clean water and certain chemicals these cultures ere applied lo the seed, which It thsn dried In a shaded plac« and sown as soon as possible. When this method la successful at all It appears to be fully as much so as the scattering of soil. For some reason, hoifever, which has not yet been definitely deter mined, complete failures occasionally occur; more frequently. In fact, than when Inoculation la practiced by the transfer of aoll. In the latter case from 300 to *00 pounds of aoll per acre should be used. Car» should be taken to obtain the soll only from healthy stands known lo be free from noxious weeds or plant diseases. To secure and handle such quantities of soil Is necessarily a somewhat burden some and expensive business, and It Is, therefore, desirable to obtain the soil from as near by as possible. When no good soll la available In Ihe Immediate vicinity It la best to seed a very small area the first season and to use this soli for Inoculating larger areas later on. Where only a small quantity or soil Is available, very sat lafaciory résulta can ordinarily be ob tained by mixing the seed with an equal quantity, pound for pound, of the alfalfa soli, mashed free from even small clods. This mixture may be run through a drill—or sown on a cloudy day—or after sundown. If II must be needed broadcast In the sun shine, scatter the mixture directly In front of the covering harrow. It la also possible to reduce the quantity of soil needed for Inoculation by thor oughly mixing R with several times Its weight of ordinary earth In such cases from 300 to 300 pounds per acre may be found sufficient. The grower, however, who attempts to skimp In the Inoculation of his land, like the grower who attempts to use any but the beat land. Is apt to find that al falfa instead or a profitable Is a losing crop, less lousy at this time of year; par cattle Is as follows; Drive a craven it must numerous around the *y»s, nose, ai- j back of the ears, withers, brisket, and tn flanks, a fact that one should bear In mind when /praying or giving bad case* Individual treatment, or DESTROYING LICE ON CATTLE Spray Animals With Ocod Stock Dip by Meant of Barrel Spray Pump and Bordeaux Nozzle.
