The following directions, if careful !.< followed, will insure huccuss. They are clipped from the ar? ticle mentioned butt week. Here is the first necessary point: buy your bulbs from a good establishment. Tho beat! time to do tin? planting is in September or early October, as bulbs deteriorate when they art kept long out of the earth. If they are kept in o cold, dark collar they oan lie forced when? ever you wish. All bulbs should In- planted in a rich, light soil?if possible a composite nf one third leaf mold, one-third well rotted cow manure ami one.third sandy loam If it is impossible to get this use a sandy soil, ami, after bringing the bulbs to the light, water very freoly with liquid fertilizer. Mi' sure that there are large holen for drainage, and that these holes are covered by bro? ken pottery or charcoal (prefer aid) charcoal) so as to keep the earth front tilling thorn up. After you have the earth ami puts ready half till all the pots with earth and then put the bulbs in. <"<>.. r each hull) so thai its tup is half an inch be? low the surface of the soil and an inch In-low the rim of tin pot. The extra spaee allows for thorough wittering. The soil should be of the usual moisture anil pressed motleratoly firm about the bulbs. Then mark the pots ami put them in a cold, dark, rat proof cellar, and leave them then- for from six weeks to three months to allow good roots to form. Water the bulbs thoroughly about once a week. Bring them up as you want them; some may he brought up much BQonor than others. If you have not a cold, tlark cellar the pots may be buried in tin- earth, except those contain? ing the polyanthus narcissus bulbs, which are very tender. Place 1"oi^c marks over these bulbs, so that you can lind the different varieties. Hyacinths, tulips, crocuses, seillii and snowdrops are all hem-lit ted by freezing, and also the narcissus except the poly? anthus family. Take out a set about four weeks In-fore you want them, soak well, and put] in a cool, dark place for three weeks to make root growth,! and then gradually bring to the sun. I have known people in apartments who kept the bulbs under their beds in it cool room, proteotod from the light with newspapers and a lined valance. When bringing the bulbs to the light do nut put them in tint sun at lirst, but place them in a shaded spot, ami in it few days they may bo removed to a sun? ny window. Kastor lilies require more at? tention. They need a long growth and should he planted about Ootobei lirst for Kastor blooming. Put plenty of char? coal at tin- bottom of the pots and cover the bulbs with sifted coal-ashes and rough, well-dried in a n u r e. Water sparingly. These bulbs are subject to in? sect attacks, in this differing from other bulbs. Watch them elosoly and if necessary use to? bacco dust or one of the prep? arations for bug extermination. The bulbs of these lilies en? dure much higher temperature when brought to the light than other bulbs. To make a liquid fertilizer put a bag of cow manure in a pail and pour boiling water over it. Dilute to a golden-brown when about to use it. Hyacinths may be given liquid fertilizer two or three times a week after they are brought to the light. Other bulbs may be given it once a week. After the bloom is thoroughly formed they will not need it.

Demands for Christian Union 1!\ rttSllOP \VaHRKN A, I'amm.kh) Ln these (Jay8 "orts of in? ter-denominational meetings und conventions wo hear much talk ubout Christian union. Hut there in not in some iiuart orH u danger of making too lit? tle of the real Christian unity we have by extravagant de? mands for a mere mechanical union which we can never have. There is already a unity of Christ'? Church which does not need to be sought after or pray led for, because it is already in tile world, ll is a fur better und nobler thing than that impossi? ble und undesirable organic union of all Christian people in ono huge, obeae. and apopletic organization. Hut some who never weary of calling for this useless uuion seem to have oo scruples concerning the viola Mod of Scriptural unity. Their| demand for Christian union ap? pears to b? schismatic in it* nature, for their proposal ap? pears to be that all other churches shall be swallowed up by their own. It savors moro of ecclesiastical ambition and pride than of real catholicity. They are quick to tell us that they are ready to recognize Christians of all churches, but what is required is that they should recognize the churches of all Christians. Nothing is more schismatic than the etfort to impose upon others conditions of Christian fellowship which the Holy Scriptures do not impose. This was the evil nt which Paul aimed his Culminations in the Kpistle to tho tlalatiaus. The Judiazors of his time pursued him into all the churches which he organized, teaching the Hen tile converts that their salva? tion was dependent upon the observant.t certain Jewish ordinances. This was, in effect, to nullify salvation by faith in Christ, and to set up a scheme of redemption by mere median-1 ical processes of organization and ordinances. The great apos? tle to the Gentiles would have none of it. KesiBtiug the apos? tle of Hebrew succession and pretension, he d e c I a r e dt "Though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gos? pel unto you, let him be ac? cursed .'? lie thus anathema! ized the schismatic demands of the Judiazors that lite Qontiles should become one with them by being subjected to their forms and ceremonies. He did not propose lo allow any one,' whether man or angel, to im-j pose a yoke of bondage upon the freedom of the faith. It seems that Paul's battle will have to be fought over in our day. Men are preaching again union by submission to j their own sectarian tests and standards. All this intolerance of other churches seeks to get an unfair advantage by posing as a burning desire for Chris? tian unity. We already have Christian unity among multiplied mil? lions of Christians who are one in faith and love, although holding membership in different ecclesiastical bodies. Why do these sectarians refuse to recog nize and practice this Christian unity? Why do they seek to disturb by their schniistie de? mands that all souls shall come into their denomination':' Have they no appreciation of any unity except that which is in? volved in universal uniformity under their own type': Will they despise the unity of the Spirit unless they can be per? mitted to impost- upon all Christians a union of mere form ami mechanical organization!' If they cannot rise to higher heights of tolerance and charity than that, they may as well tin derstand that their demands; will never he allowed, and that sectarianism cannot lit- disguis? ed or concealed Ijy any preten < ions jiidUH fur "reunion <>f Christendom." Ah long as men have minds and think, they will reach dif. ferent conclusions about many points, although they may agree in the cHsuittinls of faith To attempt to constrain them into a mechanical uniformity in these mutters would be injur iOIIS to them and harmful to the cause of Christ. Inclosing them iu a huge ecclesiastical hippo drome while they bold diverg? ent views might make a lively circus, but it certainly could not promote any good end Men are most effective when most free and most sincere. To pre? tend to agreement of opinion, when no such agreement exists in fact, is most hurtful to char? acter. To suppress opinions is at least weakening, if it is not something worse. The true plan tor (Jhristiun nnity, therefore, 1? that every man be fully persuaded iu his iown mind, and that he full in with-thut organization with which he is ugrec-d and respect the organizations of all other Christians. If that orogrum be not possible, certainly the more cumbersome, coercive program Continued un ; two. Martin and Swanson Carry State in Primary Elec? tion by Large Majority.

Chesterfield Courthouse, Vn , Sept. 0.?After one Of the most sensational trials iu the history of Virginia, Henry Clay Beat tie, .1 r., was found guilty yes? terday afternoon of the murder of his wife on the Midlothian turnpike und sentenced to be electrocuted on Novoinber 34, T he jury which returned the verdict was composed of Vir? ginia farmers, and before reach? ing their decision they knelt iu I the little jury room of the court? house praying fervently that they might pass judgment aright on the prisoner. Grimly determined, they arose a moment later and si? lently, one by one, recorded a unanimous verdict of "guilty." Pausing iu solemn contempla? tion for fifty-eight minutes, weighing carefully the meaning of their decision and once more on bended knees beseeching Divine assistance that they might not err, they tiled into the hushed stilli.ess of a crowd? ed conn room, and with start? ling suddenness twelve voices, instand of the usual one of tho foreman, spoke the single word, '??Guilty," .lodge Wut son then fixed the ! date of execution.
