Those to be attained re far and f beyond our hope f sensing or imagining at present. In the gigantic realm of mathe latics the newly discovered inte rals are on summits and heights f pure mentation not thought pos ible by the early explorers in the lighty universe of number’s. Now le question arises, what may man ecome; is it possible for him to Dcompass the infinite? The peaks nd heights of intepration now rise lrectly into the infinite. Can man till rise to greater heights? Or is , man a part of infinite mind? The j itegrals seem to say he is. And in the new chemistry based n atomic numbers the mind is ex anding in the illimitable possibili ies of new and still more complex ambinations of chemical element* peetroscopic analysis, the separation f compounds into original elements nd the detection by spectrum lines f billionths, this achievement has een attained. Synthetic chemistry vast department of science, may isume such proportions that foods lay be made directly from their asic elements. And every wheel n earth may yet turn by the force 1 electrical induction, the force be ig induced by the universal cos lical energy. Here is a good place to insert a tying now going the rounds of re ?nt psychology mentation, “We link by induction." If this is a cientiflc fact—not scientific yet be ause not proved beyond any trace t doubt, then we are indeed mind mits of the infinite mind. And this > what good Master Hermes said in bmp of the 3,000 rooms in that n*nd Labyrinth of Arsinoe, on the bores of Lake Meeris. For it is ®own that he was thrice exalted, rnich means he had been initiated J all the uspernal wisdom degrees F the rites of that magnificent tern ®e- I have often wondered if he and ?® coadjutors knew what mind is. t so, this wisdom has been lost in *e rage of war, for none, of his descendants now living know what} it is. And I have many times wondered t what the effect would be on the career of man on earth if he could ! discover what he really is. And then make the next discovery how to use apparently latent powers within him. One of the most persistent traditions of ancient Hermetic and Osirian wisdom as taught for cen thrones of mind. And the mind ex pressing therein has power to isolate and weigh one electron, next to the infinitely small, and weigh 5,000,000, 000 suns, some of them being two billion times larger than the earth. How mind functions in these minute centers of nerve radiation, and what mind is—these two are enigmas so completely inscrutable that mental ists are battled; they cannot master turies in the Labyrinth that has sur vived until now is that there ex ists in man very remarkable powers for mentation, now latent, but known to the grand masters then. There may be something in this very an cient idea. That is. has the supernal calculus been latent in the deep sea realms of the human mind for many decades of thousands of years? If other things are still latent, what may not man become when these mighty powers are awakened? I have been projecting photographs of brain cells or nerve ganglia in brain tissues by high power lenses on screens in my new science cham bers to the complete astonishment of my classes and of myself. These complexes of nerve fibers are- the one fact relating to either. Only one thought that is new has passed into, out of or through the human brain cells so far in 1917, and this was the discovery of a law of nature by a young chemist named Moseley in England. Then he was ordered to the trenches in France, where he soon was killed. That is the way the case of hu manity stands today. Yet every dis covery of physical and mental sci ence indicates that the entire side real universe and all it contains are rooted and grounded in mind, the true base of all there is. The term “mental base of nature’’ is appearing in many places. -o 0 -0 0-o-o——o-o-o 1 I 0 WHAT MANURE IS WORTH o 1 I ■-0-0-0-o-o-o-0 The real value of farm manure is hard to estimate. The chemist’s val ue, based upon the plant food the manure contains, ranges usually from $2 to $4 a ton. This does not in clude the value of the manure as humus, which is considerable. From a farmer's standpoint a ton of ma nure is worth a great deal more than the chemist’s estimate, because experience teaches that land where manure has been spread yields a great deal more than land of the same kind without any manure. The principal value of manure, says Farm and Ranch, is its beneficial effect upon the texture of the soil. When incorporated with soil manure greatly improves the texture, loosen ing a tight, heavy soil and binding together a light, sandy soil, making the soil warmer, more friable and more retentive of moisture. As a means of increasing the water holding capacity of soil ma nure is very valuable. King found after three years experience that manured fallow ground contained 18 tons more water per acre in the first foot of soil than similar land unmanured, while the total gain in the first three feet of soil on ac count of the manure was 34 tons. There is one other benefit that should not be omitted Manure car ries countless numbers of bacteria that are of benefit to the soil. When the vegetable matter in the manure decays in the soil certain acids and ferments are produced which have a decided influence upon soil fertility. That is. a liberal application of ma nure sets in motion a series of activ ities that render more plant food - -CCALL : I Patterns Does the new bus tle line become you best, or do you prefer the straight silhouette?

The amount of plant food in the manure, as has been previously stat ed. depends upon the kind of animal, the age of the animal, the kind and amount of feed and the. bedding used. Horae manure is richer in nitrogen than either that of the cow or hog. An average sample of horse manure contains about 6 per cent nitrogen, 3 per cent phosphoric acid and 5 per cent potash. Cow and hog droppings contain more water and are poorer in plant food. An average sample of either contains about 4 per cent nitrogen. 2 per cent phosphoric acid, 5 per cent pot ash. Poultry manure is the richest of the farm manures because it con tains the semi-solid urine and there is little waste. An average sample of poultry manure contains about 12 per cent nitrogen. 9 per cent phos phoric acid and 6 per cent potash. It will thus be seen that it is es pecially ritn in nitrogen and phos phoric acid. Estimating the manure of farm animals according to the plant food nitrogen, phosphoric acid and potash, they contain, they are valued about as follows: Sheep manure $4.20 per ton; mixed farm manure $2.25 per ton; hen manure $6.50 a ton; hog manure $3.20 a ton; livery stable manure $2.45 a ton; cow manure $2.43 a ton. This does not, of course, include the humus value, which may be several times the value of the plant food In the manure. There are at least two fairly ac curate methods of calculating the amount of manure a definite num ber of animals win produce during the year. Careful feeders have found that it may be fairly estimated that a horse will yield 12.000 pounds of solids and 3,000 pounds of liquids during the year; a cow will produce 20,000 pounds of solids and 8,000 pounds of liquids; a sheep 760 pounds solids and 380 pounds liquids, a hog 1,800 pounds solids and 1,200 puuuu» liquids, wun me average analysis given above the plant food may be estimated, n Another method of calculating the manure an animal will produce is to multiply the amount of dry mat ter in the feed for one year by the following: For the horse multiply the amount of dry matter in his feed for one year by 2.1; for the cow. multiply the dry matter in the feed by 1.8. To the product of each case must be added the weight of the bedding. As an example suppose a cow consumes 20 pounds of dry mat ter a day in her feed. Multiply 20 by 3.8 and we have 76 pounds of manure. To this we must add the bedding. If this be 10 pounds the manure will amount to 86 pounds. Heiden’s rule for calculating the manure of farm animals is to esti mate by a ton of feed. For instance a ton of green corn fodder is sup posed to produce 1,590 pounds of manure; a ton of green alfalfa 2,166 pounds of manure; a ton of green cowpeas 1.260 pounds; a ton of corn silage 1,605 pounds of ma nure. Dry feeds: Corn fodder per ton produces 4,439 pounds manure; a ton of alfalfa hay, 7,035 pounds manure; a ton of cowpea hay 6,858 pounds manure; a ton of millet hay 6,931 pounds manure. Another way is to keep a record of the feeding When one knows the amount and composition in fer tilizing constituents he can estimate the amount of nitrogen, phosphoric acid and potash In the manure. Cows in milk return only about 65 to 75 per cent of the manurial value of their food in the excrement. Cows that are being fattened return from 80 to 90 per cent. How can the manure be saved with the least loss and the greatest profit? This is a question of great importance, and suggestions will be made along this line. Let us hear from those who save, apply and get increased profits. ---o Brazil, which moves annually, the greatest coffee crop in the world, has developed an important industry in the weaving of Jute bagging. The entire coffee export of Brazil and many other products leave the coun try in bags of domestic manufacture. Brazil imports its jute from the Gan ges region of British India through Calcutta or Scotch markets. ■---o The United States government Is reported as having placed additional orders for 4.800 narrow gage cars for the use of the forces overseas, as follows: American Car & Foun dry Co.. 1,800; Pressed Steel Car Co., 1,000; Standard Steel Car Co.. 1,000. and Ralston Steel Car Co., 1,000. UDIESI LOOK YOUNG, MM 6M1 Mill Use the Old-time Sage Tea and Sulphur and Nobody will Know. Gray hair, however handsome, denotes advancing age. We all know the advan tage* of a youthful appearance. Your hair ia your charm. It makes or mars the face. When it fadea. turn* gray and look* streaked, ju»t a few applications of Sage Tea and Sulphur enhances its ap pearance a hundred-fold. Don’t stay gray! Look young! Either prepare the recipe at home or get from any drug store a 50-ccnt bottle of “Wyeth’s Sage and Sulphur Compound,” which is merely the old-time recipe im proved by the addition of other ingredi ent*. Thousand* of folks recommend thia readv-to-use preparation, because it darkens the hair beautifully, besides no one can possibly tell, as it darken* so naturally and evenly. You moisten a sponge or soft brush with it, drawing this through the hair, taking one small strand at a time. By morning the gray'hair disappears; after another application or two, its natural color is restored and it becomes thick, glossy and lustrous, and you appear years younger. Wyeth’s Sage and Sulphur Compound is a delightful toilet requisite. It ia not intended for the cure, mitigation or pre vention of disease. STATEMENT OF THE CONDITION OF = McClintock Banking Co.

CLARK I TOO MANY LAWSUITS It is the second great command ment, love for one’s neighbor, love for all mankind that I wish now especially to emphasize, and to urge our preachers and religious leaders to emphasize. Ke have too manv church members professing a re ligion of love who do not speak to some neighbor; who instead of for giving some ancient injury lie awake nights planning to get even; who in stead of putting a charitable con struction upon the words and deeds of neighbors, live in a perpetual state of suspicion and distrust; or who belong to the same set or fac tion in a community which cherishes nothing but hate or bitterness for some other faction. Especially, it seems to me, are such conditions likely to prevail in country communities. It is not that country people are worse at heart than city people, , but simply be cause the farmer, living to himself, does not mingle with his fellows as much as the city man, and it is always easy to mistrust the man you don’t know. It was a wise say ing of a great man. “Know one another and you will love one an other.” 1 remarked the other day that in proportion to property in terests involved, 1 believe there are ten times as many law suits among farmers as among city business men. No matter what your object may be—whether it is to develop indi viduals of noble, generous character; or bring about greater business co operation among rural people, or bring about a more satisfying social and community life—In any case, there is nothing more important for us than to get iur people to put life’s emphasis on love rather than hate, on trust rather than suspicion. —The Progressive Farmer. Most fires result from carelessness. A great many are reported as re sulting from accidents, but most accidents result from carelessness. Mr. Webster defines carelessness as “not taking proper care; negli gent; unconcerned. Without thought or attention; unstudied.” We read in the newspapers of buildings being destroyed by fire caused by the owner using kero sene to start the kitchen fire. Or from coals from an unscreened open fireplace rolling out on the floor after the family has retired. Again the account states that the fire originated from a trash pile in the back yard, or from an electric iron left with the current on while the one in charge talked to the next door neighbor across the fence. These fires are termed ‘accident al.” They could all be prevented. Fire prevention is necessarily an individual matter. Each citizen must look after and remedy conditions on his own premises. He can do this by taking proper care; by not being negligent or un concerned; by giving proper thought and attention; and by giving some study to the hazardrous conditions that may exist. He lan avoid sarelessness. And by avoiding carelessness the danger of fire on his ow’n premises will be reduced to the minimum. -o 0 ——o-o-o-o-o-o-o 1 I 0 SCRAPS o 1 I 0—-—o-o-O-f —o-O-O The Alumnae Association of Smith college has devised a plan by which members may avoid dues for all time by paying $30 now for a life mem bership.

Lightn ing rods are really a great protec tion to form buildings, and If bought conservatively are worth many times their cost. We hope before many weeks to publish a somewhat com prehensive discussion of the subject. Meanwhile we would advise farm ers to write the United 8tates De partment of Agriculture, Washington, D. O.. and ask for Farmers’ Bulletin No. 367. "Lightning and Lightning Conductors."

NOW is the time to begin on LUNG GERMINE and build up and strengthen your lungs. Lung Germine has relieved incipient Lung Diseases, according to state ments of sufferers themselves, as well as statements from their doctors— and the patients remain strong and in splendid health today. Tou take no chances when you try LUNG GERMINE. It is not like cheap cough syrups. It is a real lung and bronchial medicine of proven merit. Try one bottle and see for yourself how quickly and splendidly It acts. A full month's supply, which formerly cost $5.00, can now be had for only 12.00. If you are not satisfied with the benefit you have derived after using one full bottle, ask the drugr gist for your money back. Good druggists everywhere have Lung ilermine, or can get it for you from their wholesalers.
