THE CLOSED CHURCHES A recent writer deplores the fact that ohnrchee which are built and furnished at great cost are really opened bnt one day tn the week for public ose. He thinks they might be the means of doing far more good if they would so arrange that their parlors might be used as reading rooms where young people could meet orider proper regulations. In few towns comparatively are there suitable places where tbe youth can meet and enjoy their eveniues in some profitable manner. In some quarters It is suggested that even thf V. M C.

Many who try to keep plants won der why they die and tbe following from the Youths Campari Ion may enlighten as to the best way to pre serve them : , ; An attempt to .grow plants in the living-room of the bouse frequently resulte in their speedy death and a keen disappointment to the grower. Success demands that a temperature of sixty five lo seventy ilegrees be maintained during the daytjiue, wit.lv a drop of ten to Hfteen dear;- during thn night; fifty degrees Is as low a temperature as most plants cannuc cessfully stund. Iucidentally, these temperatures are (be best for the health of tlie family. V. Too often the temperatnie of the living room reaches eeveniy live oi eighty degrees during tbe winter months. Such temperatures are al most invariably accompanied by a low percentage of humidity in the atmosphere, and the soil hi the pots diies rapidly In consequence, for not only are the plants transpiring much water through the leaves, but watei ilso evapotates from the surface' ol the soil and through the porous clay of the pots. Rapid fluctuations of boil inoiaturo are extremely bad for the health of platita. The worst re mlt of this oondition is dry soil in the bottom of the pot, for too fre .pjoiitly house-plant watering consists merely in pouring a little water on the surface of the soil, not enough to reach dowu to the bottom. Dryness of the soil la best deter mined by tbe gardeners' method. Hit tbe pot a abarp blow with the knuckles of the first and second fin. gera. If the sound is hollow, the oil is dry; If dead, there is sufficient moisture. When the soil is thorough ly dry, the only sure way to water she plant la to place it for several minutes In a pail oontaing enough water to coyer'the pot. , .. Moisture can be supplied to the atmosphere' by seeping t a dish of water on ornear the stove, where it Will evaporate readily. Most fur paces haVe".. place for water in tbe jaok'et which will' need Ailing daily. Plants usually thrive in the kitchen because of the moisture the atmos phere derives from the steam of the eakettle and the pots. ' ' Gas Is an enemy of honse plants, either coal or illuminating gas, and aud it will retard growth and prevent the opening of fipwer boda even when present in such small quantities that it oannoYbe studied. Fresh air is essential. Ventilate the room by leaving door or win dow open just a little, but n-.er al low a draft to cross the ...ants. Like gas, drafts cause "blasting" of the buds as well as browning of the leaves. The leaves are the plants' lungs, tnd they must be kept clean. Tbe surface of each leaf is filled with min ute poles through whioh respiration and transpiration take place. Spong ing the leaves frequently with clean water will be sufilcient with, perhaps a weekly syringing, which should be done with the plants in a sink or nath-tub. Rubbing the leaves with any oily substance to make them shine is unnecessary, for a clean, healthy leaf will have abundant gloss. The grease clogs the pores, preventing the leaves from perform ing their proper functions. To obtain a well-balunced plant, turn it halfway round each way, lor plants in a window grow toward tbe light. , Farmers' Institutes Sessions of Farmers Iustitates will lie held at Qieentown Jan. 4, 5, mil, and rt I'aupao Jau. 6, 7. They will be attended by J. T, Campbell, M. H. MeCallum and S. P. Woodman and County Superintendent Lueian Westbrook is also expectod to be present. Part of the sessions will be devoted to educational interests. The lecturers are all practical men who have been raised on farms, have ex. perience and are successful. Their suggestions therefore will be of value as haviug been demonstrated by aor tual tests. The educational feature will be instructive and will tend to ".nspiru a greater desire for agricul tural pursuits. It is a. desire to awaken a deeper interest in farming in the younger generation that pur, suit which Washington duolared was the noblest of all. The.'. institutes will be in charge of U..T, Killam Esq. who with his well known ener. gy will uo doubt make them highly entertaining and profitable. Conorete blocks njade in any quan tity by K.

The Silent' Givers In tune with, the spirit oi Cnrist- mas oheer and helpfulness fa "The Silent Qivera,'' by James E. Harrow in Humak Life or' JJeoember.' These stories of menand women of vast weuun wnoariicniariy at this season, do so ranch to, lighten Jhe1 woes of tha homeless aod nope lew, ' show that beneath "robes and .furred! gown-' beat hearts that after all feel their kinship with the world oi want and pain. "There Is a wide difference Jn' the spirit of giving, .Most, men who rank as philanthropist? are abt'ualed' by human interest only. They see suffering and theif ''ytppathiee,are touched. And, since It lies In their power, they do all J bey "jpaii 1. ,Xh is spirit, of course, moved John Sl'Hjjijj; ler, ,nV pehiptTU.

For years the recipients. .Qf Jhase checks wondered wbaf the mvstlc letters might mean, bnt hVdid not explain until shortly before his death. M. P." stood for "My Partner," and by that he meant God." He was a deeply religious man and sincerely considered himself as acting in a vi. carious capacity, 'and all those who oenefited by his silent giving felt that there was something of the ideal ministrations. He gave annually close to half a million dollars to all sorts of philanthropio work, but he bad a way of doing it which subordt- nated the amount of tbe gift to the thought behind it." Palmer Protests The withdrawal of hie name for consideration for the nomination for Governor by the Democratic conven tion just on the eve of ita meeting by J. Larue Munson threw the party iuto confusion and resulted in the disastrous selection of Grim. There were many surmises at tbe time as to the reason for Munsou's act. Among others it was suggested that be hid tbe promise of a judicial appointment and for that threw his party overboard. Late developments indicate that this may have been the underlying reason, and Munson himself has suggested that he is in a receptive frame of mind. .In view of this Hon. A,' Mitchell Palmer, who is now looked on as one of tbe most promising leaders of a. rehabilitated. democracy, puts in a protest to Pres ident Taft against the, apppiqinieut of Munson to the Court of Commerce bench. It seem. bardly possible that Taft after all that has beep said, about tbe Munson. deal, would put the re publican party tn this state In suoh' a doubtful position as" to apparently carry out a corrupt and designing bargain made for selusb purposes and for sinister reasons. We do not believe be will but protects may not ta amis. FAKE CORPORATIONS The government baa arrested I number, of swindlers who have been using the mails to gull people Into buying, their .worthless stocks. . A wireless telegraph company has tak. en many millions out ol the pockets of poor people who were allured by tne promise of large dividends. It seema strange tnat in these days of newspapers warning against suoh schemes that so many should disre gard facts and figures and be taken in. The mail of one firm brought 120,000 in one moruing from weuld be investors and numerous telegrams asking that stock should be reservetl until tbe money oonld be sent. It there was suoh eaBv money to be made, and the schemes were at all sure to produce such golden results, there are rich men enough wit! idle capital to buy up every last share of the stock and the protnotom themselves would not be spending thousands of dollars in advertising it. nor would they let a single share pass from their control. Men are not so philanthropio as to pass around a really good thing, they want to ket'i it all for themselves, aud when the promise is made that a company will pay extraordinary dividends be sure that it is a swindle. Let It alone. Another thing. Too many presura ably upright and successful business men with good reputations lend their names to those frauds as directors, or president, and so become party criminals because their standing is a presumption that tbey have invest!; gated and do fully endorse the state ments made with respect to the soundness of the scheme. We read pitiable tales of widows and those of limited means investing' their last dollar in these, frauds only to learn when too late that their money is gone witheut hope of reoovery. The swindlers ride in autos, dwell in pal aces and live on tbe fat of tbe land. Their families dress extravagantly, their wives and daughters enjoy av e ety and all that money can buy, while tbe poor victims go back to the wash tub or to ths poor house. This is not overdrawn. You oan't get something for nothing unless you steal it or beat some one oat of it, and there usually are those who are a little quicker at tbe game than you are and get there first Remember this when next yon receive an at traotive prospectus promising yon a gold mine for a basket of obips, or in other words shares of stock at f 1 each or less, paying fabulous divi dends, with even greater returns in fight just after yon invest. The re turns are all to tbe velvet clad gen. tlemen who pocket your money and casually remark to their fellows another auoker caught.'' WANTS TO HELP SOME ONE. For thirty years J. F.

I know a very successful man who early in life resolved that, no matter how hard anything might be, or how Seemingly impossible for him to do, be would do it if the doing would prove of value to him, says "Success Magazine." He made this the test, and would never allow his moods or feelings to stand in the way of his judgment. He forced himself into a habit of promptly doing everything, no matter how disagreeable, if. it would further bis advancement. People who consult their moods. their pi efe maces or their ease can never make a great success in life. It is the man who gets a firm grip on himself and forces himself fo do the thing that will ultimately be best for bim, who succeeds. Tbe man .who goes through life picking out the Sowers and avoiding thorns in his occupation, always doing' the easy thing first and delaying or putting Off altogether, If possible, the. bard thing, does not develop the strength that would enable him to dq hard things when necessity forces thi m upon bim.
