line which separates the atmosphere

Being infinitely holy Himself, bating
sin with an unquenchable hatred, and
having, so to speak, a superlative sen
sitiveness to wrong-doing, is it not
marvelous that lie can regard the sin
ner with the least degree of allow
ance? Why is He not tempted to sweep
away utterly from His univere all
traces of sin and sinners? We
can not tell, we only know
that it is not so. For He
has told us that "Like as a father
pitieth his children, so the Lord pitieth
them that fear Him." This is a pity
we can understand, for it is like that
which we feel for our own children.
And under what circumstances do we
who are pitiful feel most pity for our
children? It is not for those who are
most unfortunate; who suffer most
from wrong-doing, or from natural
causes? One of a family of five sons
became in early childhood a half idiot.
as the result of disease. The other
four were intelligent, studious and
excellent boys, with promise of useful
lives. One was to enter the ministry.
One after another they died, leaving
only the Imbecile to the stricken par
ents. Though not vicious, the poor
fellow was troublesome and hard
to manage. But father and mother
never lost patience with the irrespon
sible boy and mas. They never seut
him away when visitors came, never
apologized for him, never seemed
ashamed of him. They pitied him,
overlooked hia many follies, and
treated him all the more tenderly be
cause of his sad condition.
We say such conduct ia beautiful.
So it is. It ia more than humane; it is
of the divine pattern; and it helps us
to understand God's attitude of loving
kindness toward those who live fool
ish lives, and seem as little subject to
the rule of reason as does the poor
idiot There are parents who, in a
rigor of righteousness, denounce and
disown their children who have done
foolishly and wickedly. There are
others, more godlike, who exercise
more forbearance and show more
tenderness to wayward son or
daughter. For the effects of
sin are pitiful . as are those
of disease. If it is beautiful to
see the fatherly love which surrounds
the driveling Idiot with watchful care,
is it not much more beautiful to see
the fatherly pity which is poured out
on unrepentant prodigals, and which
yearns to forgive, becomes ever more
tender, and sever ceases to hope?
Like as such a father pitieth. so the
Lord pitieth not only them that fear
Him, but those of His children who
have put Him out of their thoughts.
Many of these were in the multitudes
over whom Jesus had compassion, and
refused to send away fasting, lest they
perish by the way. Why does God pity
the sinner? Ask the father of the
idiot why he pities his son; ask the
father of the fallen woman why he
pities his daughter. Is it not because
their condition is pitiable? The Lord
pitieth us, because "He know

Before the advent of northern tour
ists into the Black mountains the few
inhabitants of that region were wretch'

mica mining; and as some of the mines
were among the inaccessible peaks, the
mica had to be carried upon men's
backs down to the hamlets. For years
these men plodded to and fro like
beasts of burden, their miserable wafes
barely sufficing to keep them alive.
Apparently no pleasure or hope came
into their lives.
One man, Peter Foy, as he trudged
along with his back bent, finding him

curried such objects as he found in Ms
cabin, and arranged them on a shelf.
As years past they grew in interest,
and "Foy's show" became the wonder
of all the Swannanoa region.

turning Peter's treusures, took up a
rough stone and examined it curi
"What is this?" he asked.

The stone was carried to a lapidary,

Fallacy or the Notion Thai Cottoa Caa
Not bo Rotated with Other Crops.
It has been said that the nature of
the cotton crop forbids its being
grown in a regular farm rotation as Is
practiced among good farmers in sec
tions where the money crops are graia
and stock. The utter fallacy of the
notion that this can be the case with
any annual crop has been repeatedly
shown from the experience of those
who have. broken away from the old
time methods of cotton growing, and
have shown that cotton fits as well
into an improving rotation of crops as
any other of our hoed crops. It is true
that its use in a rotation necessitates
a rather longer rotation than where
there is but one hoed crop in the rota'
tion, for where cotton is grown there
corn must almost of necessity be
grown also, and to properly lo
cate two hoed crops in a rotation.
so that both can have a fair chance for
success, involves a lengthening of the
series of the crops. This is a matter of
no disadvantage, however, as it gives
more diversity to the farming, and
opens up more opportunities for the
profitable keeping of stock on the cot
ton farm. We would lay it down as a
rule that no progressive farmer in the
south should disregard, that two clean-
cultivated crops should never follow
each other in successive seasons on the
same land, unless a leguminous crop
can ue 'gotten In between them. We
will suppose that the farmer in the
coast plain, the true cotton belt, will
adopt for his crops cotton, corn and
winter oats. Now, the true idea
in a rotation of crops is to
so manage his rotation and
fertilization as to get the largest
amount of the money crop, cot-
t on. per acre, while steadily in
creasing the fertility of his soil. He
will study the art of using fertilizers
so that he can get, by means of the ro
tation he uses, not only without cost
but at an actual profit, the most ex
pensive portion of a high-grade fer
tilizer, the nitrogen, which, when pur
chased in the market, costs more than
three times as much per pound what

JI he farms without such a well-de
viseu rotation, in me old one-crop

must thus be handicapped in grow
ing cotton in competition with a neirh
bor who farms while he plants. With
the added cost in the crop of the nitro

KKinug iroin tne air woiie he pays
a Heavy price for it on the market It
is easy to see then that while his neigh
bor may nnd a margin of profit in the
cotton crop, he may at the same price
tose money m tlie culture, and notonlv
lose money on the crop, but find that
his land is growing poorer and poorer
at tne same time. And this is to-day
the condition of the great mass of the
cotton growers of the South Atlantic
cotton country. Now let ns assume
that the farmer isgoing to get out of
hub uustrucuve svitem, or rainer laca
of any system, and that he is going to
grow something else besides cotton,
And he is going to do tins, not
because of some misty notion that
he has that he should diversify
his crops, and grow some other
things besides cotton, just in the same
way that he hr.s been growing cotton,
but that he has determined to use these
other crops ass means tkward the de
velopment of his land for the more
profitable culture of cotton. He is not
going to grow a lot of corn this year
so as to be able to say that he has
gTown enough to last for several years
while he grows cotton, but he is going
to use these extra crops as any busi
oess man would use the stock he has
for sale, to help pay his expenses. He
will get rid forever of the idea that his
cotton is the only thing to get money
out oi. out win turn all his sur
plus of any kind into money, and
thus tend toward the imaking of the
cotton crop a surplus crop for profit
The change from a plantation which
has been run for years in the single
crop of cotton until it will only bring
cotton by the application of a complete
fertilizer, to a farm where a variety of
crops are grown in a systematic man
ner, can not be done all at once, unless
the owner has a surplus cash capital.
But it can be done gradually by any
man of industry and perseverance.
The one thing which our people need
to learn is the value of concentration
in farming, and to realize that a few
acres heavily fertilized and well culti
vated will give more profit than many
lightly dressed and scratched over.
If, therefore, the man who wishes to
change his practice will drop off about
half the area he usually cultivates
the cotton crop and use on the re
mainder all the fertilizer he has been
accustomed to use on the whole, he
will have a fair chance to make more
clear money than he would on the
whole, for the extra dose of fertilizer
will not only give him a beter crop
of the staple, but will help in the
adoption of the rotation we propose.
We will suppose that he does so.
and in August, on his well-cultivated
and enriched acres he sows
all among his cotton seed of crim
son clover at the rate of fifteen
pounds per acre, and if by any means
he caa. afford to buy a few hundred
pounds of acid phosphate and potash
or a tip dressing on the clover in the
fall he will be that much further
ahead, aod the money will be invested
where it will pay a better percentage
than in bank stocks. will assume
that he is going to keep some stock to
add to the profits of hia farming and
to furnish manure to lessen the need
of purchased fertilisers. The clover
will give him, if treated as we suggest
a fine crop of hay in April or May,
hich he will, of course, savo for
stock feeding. He can then plow the
stubble at once and sow the cow
peas broadcast, and as soon as well
filled with mature pods turn in the
hogs, for you will surely want to raise
pork as a matter of food and profit in
farming, and the hogs will nse the
peas as profitably u they can be used
ia any other way. After the bogs
have) reveled and jrrowa fat oa tha
peas, take them oft to finish on eora
and plow the land for winter oats, us
ing on the oats about 400 lbs. per aero
or tne acid phosphate and potash,
mixed, say jOI lbs. of said phosphate U
100 lbs. of muriate o potash, the pre
vious crops of peas and clover having
put an abundance if ammonia in the
soil, and paid for the doing of it in
fattening the hogs, so thst yon are
now saved the cost in the fertiliser.
The chances are that you will at once
get a heavy crop of oats. As soon as
the oats are off sow another crop of
peas on the broken stubble, to be cut
later for hay, and in August all among
tne peas sow crimson clover again, to
be pastured in the fall and winter
after the pea vine hay is saved, and
kept closely pastured whenever the
weather will permit until time to pre
pare it lor the cotton crop. By this
time there will be a little excess of
nitrogen for the cotton crop, and tha
potash and acid phosphate should be
used .to balance the ration for the
cotton and to insure again a good
stand of clover in the cotton. In Au
gust all among the cotton sow crimson
clover again, and in winter haul all
the home-made manure on the clover,
and in early spring, as soon as the
clover is in bloom, mow it for hsy and
at once plow the land for corn, and do
not be afraid to put the plow point
aown oeep II your subsoil la clay. Cul'
tivate the corn well, but shallow, and
do not hill it After the last working
sow crimson clover seed again, to be
cut for hay the following spring, and to
oe lol lowed by peas for cow hsy, and
then to be put in order for oats in the
fall and thus repeat the rotation
from year to year. By the time you
nave gotten around to the cotton on

and potash to your peas and clover,

Relatively speaking, small farms pay

the agricultural prosperity of the

cultivate and manage a large farm an
wen as a small one. It requires no
mean order of executive ability to cul
tivate a thousaud-acre farm with hired

on the crops after expenses are
paid, and at the same time
manage the farm so thai its fertility ia
maintained. Of course we can not call
anyone a good farmer who robs the
Sou oi us fertility year Dy year, paying
back nothing. Good farming means
raising crops that net a fair profit after
expenses are paid, and at least main
taining the fertility of the land.
But the best order of farming is not
only to maintain fertility, but to
increase it year by year. How
is this to be done? On small
farms where a good deal
of stock is kept, stable manure may
materially aid. But for large acres

Chemically speaking, the slnll of an
egg consists chiefly of carbonate of
lime, similar to chalk, with a very
small quantity of phosphate of lime
and animal mucus. The white of an
egg (albumen) is without taste or
smell, composed of eight parts of wa
ter, fifteen and a half parts of al
bu men, and four parts of mucus, be
sides giving traces of soda, benzoio
acid and sulphuretted hydrogen gas.
The yolk has an insipid, bland oily
taste. It consists, chemically, of water,
oil, albumen and gelatine. Now
