WOMEN’S CLUBS THRIVE.
Pessimists Sny They Are n Kail, Dat

The latest edition of the official di
rectory of the woman’s clubs of Chi
cago shows tiiat the pessimists who
say that women’s clubs are a fad, and
that they die soon after they are cre
ated because of the members being
extremely fickle in their allegiance to
their clubs, are entirely and totally
wrong, says the Chicago Tribune.
There have been four editions of
the official directory. The first one
printed, which covered the years 1899
1900, reveals that there were 66 clubs
at that time. The next year’s di
rectory shows that the number of
clubs had leaped to 112. Then the
pessimist would naturally expect that
the directory of the following year
would indicate a slump back to some
thing like the number of clubs given
in the first directory. But the book
for the yeur 1901-1902 reports 97 clubs
in \ existence, and the new directory
for the year 1902-1903 gives the names
of 95 clubs.
A comparison of the book just is
sued with the one first published
shows that almost all the clubs given
in the first volume are alive and pros
perous. The biggest change was be
tween the years 1900 and 1901 and 1901
and 1902, when the number of clubs
slumped from 112 to 97.

Modern Pork Production.
In an interesting paper on the above*
subject before the Iowa Swine Breed
ers' association, l’rof. C. F. Curtiss said
th„t no other domestic animal is call
able of converting the foodstuffs of the
farm into finished meat products so
economically as the hog. This ability
has won for him the well-deserved ap
pellation of “mortgage-lifter.” The
modern hog is capable of making from
12 to 15 pounds of pork from one bushel
of corn, the choice parts of which
are worth from 20 to 30 cents per pound,
retail. Owing to its nature, the hog is
very sensit ive to climatic changes, and
this should lie recognized in its treat
ment. Under domestication the di
gestive organs of the hog have been
enlarged, which, in turn, gives greater
capacity as well as depth and length
of body. The increased digestive ca
pacity gives earlier maturity and a
greater propensity to fatten.
Bees In ^Winter Flight.
When the bees take a winter flight
there should he a shallow basin with
floating sticks o'r other arrange
ments, so that the bees can alight
there and get the water they will
need, and if the water is salted at the
rate of about one teaspoonful of salt
to a gallon of water they will like
it all the better. This may save
them from taking too long a flight,
and thus from the loss that follows
when they go out, if they fly fur for
water. The water should be placed
near enough to the hive so that they
will have no difficulty in finding it,
and if one is carried to it, it will soon
show the way to the others.—Mid
Too Wide a Difference.
The raDge of difference in prices in
the market centers between the best
and worst grades of cattle offered, has
somtimes been as high as $4.50 per hun
dred. This is entirely too much. The
only explanation that can he made of
this unprecedented wide range is that
the receipts of undesirable cattle have
been excessive. High prices have
tempted owners of half-fat and thin
stuff to ship. As a rule, none but full,
fat, ripe cattle should he sent to mar

from the air, the ventilation may
have been poor and the seed may
have been injured by molding or heat

and the usual amount is sown, tjic
stand is poor and irregular, and a
low yield is the result.
The weather during the fall of
1902 was hard on the vitality of
seeds, and even where the best of
care lias been taken, the per cent, of
germination may be low. Where the
seed has been neglected the per cent,
of germination may fall below 50.
Much poor seed will be sent out this

BERRIES UNDER CLOTH.
Plants Are More Productive \\ lien
So Protected Tlinii W hen Grown
in the Open.
The experiment Station Record thus
reviews some experiments by <). W.
Blacknall. He has successfully used
thin muslin, known as tobacco plant
bed cloth, as a protection for straw
berries. In his experience the berries
grow larger, the blossoms are better
pollenized, and the plants more pro
ductive under cloth than when grown
in the open. He considers.also that the
slight increase of warmth obtained by
lessening the radiation at night was
very beneficial to the growth of the
strawberries. Taking one year with
another, lie estimates that this kind of
protection adds from 50 to 100 percent,
to the yield of berries, makes them
larger and more reliable, and ripens
them earlier. Care should be taken
not to use a cloth too thick and im
pervious to sunlight. The tar-treated
kind such as is used in large quanti
ties for tobacco-plant beds is consid
ered just right. The cloth is fastened
down over the bed by driving 18-inch
stakes into the ground about one foot
deep. A wire hook is attached to the
tops of the stakes, by which .the plant
cloth is held in place. The stakesare
set the width of the cloth apart, in
straight rows and 54 inches apart in the
row. 'I'he original cost of a protection
of this kind is estimated at $150 per
acre. The cloth lasts about three years,
and the stakes, if carefully protected,
from five to ten years.

NOTES AND COMMENTS.
Christianity was horn at Jerusalem
iu the cradle of Judaism, ft had its
missionary birth at Antioch, where it
became endowed with the spirit of
brotherhood for all men. It obtained
a foothold in Galatia, at Philippi, Thes
saloniea, Corinth and other places, but
its third greater center was Ephesus.
From that city it radiated a great in
fluence throughout Asia Minor.
With Acts 18:23 begins the account ol
Paul’s third missionary journey.
Paul’s work in Corinth lasted a year
and a half altogether. The “after
this” of verse 18 refers to the experi
ence in Gallo’s court room, spoken of
in 18:12-17. This was the end of his
second missionary journey. Priscilla
and Aquila accompanied him as far as
Ephesus, where he probably changed
ships, taking one of the pilgrim ships
that each year carried crowds of Jews
to Palestine to the passover. Cenchreae
was the port of Corinth (see map). In
token of his gratitude to God for some
blessing, we do not know what.. Paul
made a vow which involved as a part
of its fulfillment the shaving of his
head at Cenchreae. His desire to go
at once to Jerusalem may have had
some connection with paying the vow,
though its exact nature is not plain.
Some have held that the vow was
Aquila's. Perhaps Paul had to remain
over the Sabbath at Ephesus for the
pilgrim ship, or the synagogue may
have been open for one of the three
week-day services. Paul seems to
have been in haste, probably to reach
Jerusalem at the time of the passover.
lie was urged to remain by the Jews,
whose ire he had not yet aroused, but
did not consent. In the words, “Went
up and saluted the church,” we must
understand that the original church
at Jerusalem is meant. After his visit
at Jerusalem Paul went down to Anti
och. The church at Antioch he con
sidered his own “home church,” and
here he remained till the beginning of
his third missionary journey.
“Mighty in the Scriptures:” Of
course the Old Testament Scriptures
are meant. “Instructed in the way of
the Lord:” He must have had some
knowledge of Christ, though we do not
know just how much. It certainly was
only partial, perhaps including the
facts of the life of Jesus, but lacking
those concerning his continued pres
ence and work iu the world through
the Holy Spirit. He was a disciple of
John, the reformer, who preached the
very practical gospel of repentance
and right living. Aquila and Priscilla
supplied what was lacking in his
knowledge of Christianity, and so in
creased his usefulness as a worker.
The broad Alexandrian culture of
Apollos, his earnest spirit and power as
a speaker, with his intimate knowl
edge of the Scriptures, made him a
very strong and helpful worker. “Pow
erfully confuted the Jews:’’ The Com
mon Version, convinced, is misleading.
What lie did was to prove that they
were wrong—to confute them. We do
not know that he convinced any of
“The upper country:” The high in
land region of Asia. “Found certain
disciples:” These disciples, like Apol
los, lacked all knowledge of the gift
of the Spirit, or of Spirit, as it is in
the Greek, “knowing only the baptism
of John.” “They lacked that peculiar
enthusiasm which in the Apostolic
Age was called ‘Holy Spirit,' and was
traced1 directly to the Spirit of God.”—
Prof. J. V. Hartlet.
The only way to be “mighty in the
Scriptures” is to study them diligently
while one has the opportunity.
There are some saints in the pews by
whom even the most eloquent preach
ers can be instructed.
An important question: “Did ye re

dies in what seems to me two some
what remarkable cases. I had a
number of skin tumours—small
ones — on my arms which had never
given me serious trouble ; but about
two years ago one came on my
throat. At first it was only about as
large as a pinhead, but, as it was in
a position where my collar, if not
just right, would irritate it, it soon
became very sensitive and began to
grow rapidly. Last spring it was
as large, if not larger, than a bean.
A little unusual irritation of my
collar started it to swelling, and in
a day or two it was as large as
half an orange. I was very much
alarmed, and was at a loss to de
termine whether it was a carbuncle
or a malignant tumor.

“ My friends tried to persuade me
to consult my physician ; but dread
ing that he would insist on using
the knife, I would not consent to
go. Instead I got a small bottle of
Cuticura Resolvent and a box of Cu
Ucura Ointment. I took the former
according to directions, and spread
a thiok layer of the Ointment on a
linen cloth and placed it on the
■welling. On renewing it I would
bathe my neck in very warm water
and Cuticura Soap. In a few days
the Cuticura Ointment had drawn
the swelling to a head, when it
broke. Every morning it was opened
with a large sterilized needle,
squeezed and bathed, and fresh
Ointment put on. Pus and blood,
and a yellow, cheesy, tumorous
matter came out. In about three or
four weeks’ time this treatment
completely eliminated boil and
tumor. The soreness that had ex
tended down into my chest was all
gone, and my neck now seems to be
“ About five or six years ago my
sister had a similar experience. She
had two large lumps come under
her right arm, the result of a sprain.
They grew rapidly, and our physi
cian wanted to cut them out. I
would not listen to it, and she tried
the Cuticura Remedies (as I did &
few months ago) with magical effect.
In six weeks’ time the lumps had
entirely disappeared,and have never
“ 1 have great faith in the Cuticura
Remedies, and I believe they might
be as efficacious in similar cases
with other people, and thus save
much suffering, and perhaps life. I
have derived so much benefit from
the use of them myself that I am
vuuauaubiy a a vising
others to use them. Re
cently I recommended
them to an office boy for
his father, who was dis
abled with salt rheum.
The man’s feet were
swollen to an enormous
size, and he had not
worked for six weeks.
Two bottles of Cuticura
Resolvent and two boxes
of Cuticura Ointment
worked a perfect cure.
You never saw a more
grateful man in your life.
“ I am very much in
terested in another case
where I have recom
mended Cuticura just
now. My housemaid’s
mother has a goitie
which had reached a
very dangerous point.
The doctors told her
that nothing could be
done; that she could live
only two or three weeks,
and that she would die
of strangulation. She

and was unable to speak, when her
daughter, at my suggestion, tried
the effect of the Cuticura Ointment
and Cuticura Resolvent. Strange to
say, she was very shortly relieved of
the most distressing symptoms. The
swelling 6eemed to be exteriorized,
and Bhe is now able to be around
her house, and can talk as well as

good grounds for believing that
Cuticura Remedies will prove suc
cessful in the most distressing forms
of blood and skin humours, and if
you wish to use my testimonial as

you should do so, with the further
