Farmers Should Raise
Well-Bred Horsss Should Plan To Meet European De mand—Fall Breeding Recom mended. R. H. RUFFNER. Maryland Agricultural College. To meet the probable European de mand for horses during the next few years, Maryland farmers may well turn their attention to the possibilities in raising well-bred horses, although they .. - .. - ... - - : jpp ■ ■ w jmy: ''' A GOOD MOTHER. are not advised to undertake the busi ness too hurriedly or at too great an out lay of capital for breeding stock. It is urged, however, that the farm work should be done whenever possible by good mares which should be bred to good stallions. Only horses of first quality may be profitably raised today. Inferior horses are a drug on the mar ket, and their production is to be dis couraged as much as the production of good horess should be encouraged. There is no better time than the present for the ambitious farmer to breed his good mares with a view to supplying the market that the next few years will open up to him. Some may no doubt object to fall breeding. As a matter of fact, the fall is a bet ter time for breeding a work mare than the spring. The colt dropped a year from how will not, it is true, be on pasture for some months. On the other hand, he will be suckling his dam at a time when she is not as hard worked as she is in the open season. The colt also during this time de pends far more on its dam for its nourishment than on what feed it can pick up. By the time he is ready for grain and hay feeding the winter will be well over and the spring pasturage will be coming on at the very time when the growing colt needs it the most in making growth. The dam at this time also is needed for heavy farm ■work, yet the colt will not suffer as he would when still a few weeks old if his mother is overworked or not quite up to her best condition. Most of our horses must be produced by the small farmer rather than the owner of a breeding farm. Such a farmer cannot always afford to give the dam as good a chance as she should have for giving her offspring the very best of nourishment. This plan avoids to a great degree any set backs to the colt or loss of the use of the mare at a busy time. It also enables many farmers whose main business is grain production to breed a few well-bred workers, that will pay well for the time and effort expended on their raising. GET RID OF ROUP IN YOUR FLC^CK ROY H. WAITE. Maryland Agricultural Experiment Station. A number of cases of roup have been reported recently. The immediate cause of this disease is one or more of a number of different bacterial or ganisms. It is probable that most of these germs are present and available to the fowls at all times. As a rule, however, they cannot get a foot-hold A BAD CASE OF ROUP. and a chance to put in their deadly work until the birds become weakened in some way so that they cannot ward off the attacks. Drafts, dampness, sudden changes in temperature, faulty feeding, uncleanliness, lice, and mites, in fact, anything which depresses the birds, tends to weaken them and at the opportune time, the germs get in their work. After the bacteria have gone through a few birds they gain virulence or strength and are then able to attack stronger birds. The symptoms of roup are not very clearly defined. It is hard to tell where colds leave off and roup begins, but when your birds are coughing and sneezing, having Inflamed mouths, nostrils oi eyes, a running at the nose or swollen eye socket, it is time to see what is going on. Look for the cause and re move it, separate and isolate all af fected birds and keep them in a dry, clean place. Get rid of all weak birds, and if you simply must give some medicine, giv6 the whole flock a dose of Epson salts —a teaspoonful to each two birds. The whole amount of salte can be dissolved in water and 'the wa ter used to moisten a feed of mash. Put a few drops of carbolic acid in the drinking water. Birds can stand a good deal of carbolic acid. Mushroom’s Great Force. The extraordinary driving force im prisoned in succulent young mush rooms may he gathered from the fact that through a shop floor laid down in Dunedin, New Zealand, several mush rooms, from two to three inches in diameter, have forced themselves up into the light of day. The asphalt looked very much as if a pick had been at work, so damaged was it by the mushrooms. BIS A BOOSTER, not a knocker. g-gr'^RGDKLYN ■ -=cr^ “SMITTEN OF GOD, AFFLICTED.” Mark 15:23-37.—Nov. 29. ‘‘Surely lie hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows; yet ice did esteem Him strick en, smitten of God , and afflicted.'’—lsaiah 53:). DURING the three years of His ministry, the Savior had giv en forth His vitality freely in i the healing of diseases. Be i sides this, He had been on a constant i strain without sleep from the time He had sent His disciples to prepare the Passover. Now. condemned to crucifixion by those for whom He had sacrificed His Heavenly borne and glory. He was additionally required to carry His own cross. He did so. until finally His weakness hindered, and a passing farmer was compelled to as sist. Where were Peter, James, John and the others, that they did not volun teer assistance? Doubtless they were deterred by fear. Crowding around the Savior t were weeping . women. Turning yMhIV j to them. He said. T , “Weep not for ir I Me. but for your selves and your children.” The Master’s words , respecting their ’l'he liansom Price. seeking the mountains and hills for , protection are assumed by some Bible , students to refer to the great trouble , which came upon the Jews thirty-sev en years later, in the destruction of , Jerusalem: and that this trouble fore shadowed the greater distress which will occur iir the close of this Gospel , Age. “They Parted My Garments.” , While Jesus was dying, the stony , hearted Roman soldiers cast lots for ! His seamless robe, dividing His other I garments amongst themselves. The at titude of the world is further repre sented in the two culprits who were executed at the same time, one on either side of Jesus, above whose head was the inscription. “King of the Jews.” One of them railed at Jesus , as a fraud, bantering Him to manifest , whatever power He had by saving , Himself and His associates. Little did he realize that if Jesus had saved Himself He could not have been the Savior of the world! The other thief befriended Jesus, de. clariug that He had been un’ustly ac cused. Turning to Jesus, he expressed his faith in our Savior by asking a reward for his kind words. He said. “Lord, remember me when Thou coin est into Thy Kingdom." The poor thief knew that Jesus claimed to be a King and recognized that He was worthy to be one, so noble of character and of appearance was He. What if fiirillv. in the great beyond, this One should prove to be Messiah? The thief would at least tell the truth, declare a word in His defense and ask kind remem brance if this One ever reached Ilis kingly power. Jesus' answer seems to have been very generally misunderstood in the past. We thought that He promised the thief to be with Him that same day in the Kingdom.- Yet we knew that according to other Scriptures Je sus Himself was not in the Kingdom that day, but in Joseph’s new tomb; that He did not rise from the dead, from Sheol, Hades, the tomb, until the third day; and that even then He said to Mary, “I have not yet ascended to My Father.” Evidently Jesus could not have meant that He and the thief would be together in Paradise that day. Paradise, lost six thousand years ago. will be restored by Messiah in His glo rious Kingdom The thief has been sleeping in death, waiting for the time when Messiah’s Kingdom will come. Jesus’ answer was in full accord with this fact—“ Verily. I say unto thee to day [this day when nothing seems more unlikely than that I shall ever have a Kingdom], thou shall be with Me in Paradise.” Jesus' Kingdom will quickly turn the world into a Paradise; and in the res- urrection of the hosts that have 1 r fallen asleep in death, that thief gi will be remem : —: x - [/ ip bered by th Master.

The Savior’s Dying Words. , The Master’s cry, “M.v God! My , ! God! Why hast Thou forsaken Me?" ! | attests that He endured to the very , limit the sinner's penalty, which was ! not merely death, but loss of fellow , ship with God. in taking the sinner's place. He must for at least a moment , have the full experience of the sin i ner’s alienation. i The cry, “It is finished!” reminds us of His statement on the day previous. , i “I have a baptism to be baptized with, i and how am I straitened until it be I I finished.” His words. “Father, into i ; Thy hands I commend My spirit.” re i mind us that He was laying down His : life.

The Secretary of Agriculture has issued the following statement re garding the quarantine for foot-and month disease : The present outbreak of the foot and-mouth disease, which is one of the most contagious and destructive diseases of cattle, swine and sheep, exceeds in area affected any of the five previous outbreaks in this coun try. Unless the infection can be im mediately localized and quickly eradi cated, it threatens untold losses among live stock. So contagious is the disease that in past outbreaks where but one animal in a herd was infected, the entire herd in almost all cases later con tracted the sickness. While the mor tality is not high the effects of the dis ease even on animals that recover are such as to make them practically use less. They lose flesh rapidly ; in the case of cows, the milk dries up or is made dangerous for human consump tion ; in the case of breeding animals the animal once infected becomes val ueless for breeding, as it may con tinue to be a constant carrier of con tagion. Governor Goldsborough issued a proclamation declaring a quarantine of the cattle in Montgomery, Howard and Carroll counties, on account of the hoof-and-mouth disease alleged to be prevalent in those counties. No cattle will be allowed to be taken in or out of the county. This is in addition to the counties of Allegany, Freder ick and Washington, in which the cat tle quarantine had already been de clared. Foot-and-mouth disease now raging among cattle in 15 states is communi cable to humans, the Department of Agriculture announced recently, but its effect rarely is serious. The De partment urged, however, that hu mans keep away from diseased cattle to avoid spreading the infection, and recommended the use of pasteurized milk. The hunting season in Allegany county will be brought to an abrupt end by a proclamation issued recent ly by Governor Goldsborough in which hunting is prohibited in an ef fort to check the spread of the foot and-mouth disease among cattle. It is contended hunters and dogs going over the ground spread the disease germs, j.nd the Governor closed the huntiqq season in all the counties where the disease has been discovered and counties contiguous to the affect ed places. The disease has appeared on a number of farms in Washington county, and although no evidence of it has been discovered in Allegany county,the Governor included it in his proclamation to prevent the epidemic from spreading there. Dr. C. W. G. Rohrer, of the State Board of Health, and head of the Bu reau of Communicable Diseases, made the announcement that persons who have been in direct contact with ani mals suffering from the hoof-and mouth disease are to be quarantined. SPIRITISM SAID TO BE DEMONiSM. A most interesting little brochure has recently come off the press settiug forth with Bible proofs that the com munications received by and through Spiritist Mediums is of Demon origin. The writer traces his subject through the Scriptures from the time when certain of the holy angels became dis obedient. He proves from the Scrip tures that these fallen spirits per sonate the human dead, with whose liast history, spirits, though invisible, are thoroughly acquainted. He strews that they also frequently person ate the Creator and the Redeemer, commanding their deceived ones to pray, do penance, etc. This, however, is merely to lead them on and to bring them more thoroughly under demoni acal control. Sometimes by breaking down the natural barrier, the human will, they possess their victim, and rule him more or less to his ruin—frequent ly sending such to the mad-house. Numerous illustrations. Scriptural-'and otherwise, are given. The price of the little book is hut five cents: it should be in the hands of all Interested iD Spiritism or who have friends inter ested therein Enclose stamps to the Bible and Tract Society, 17 Hicks Street Brooklyn. N. Y. THE WORD HELL A Little Book That Contains Some Startling Information. A little book selling at only five cents, postpaid, is having a very wide circulation—running up into the mil lions. It contains some very startling information respecting the meaning of the word Hell. It claims to demon strate. both from the Hebrew and the Greek of our Bible, that Hell is NOT a place of eternal torment, but merely another name for the TOMB, the GRAVE, the STATE OF DEATH. It affects to show that man was not re deemed from a far-off place of eternal torture, but quotes the Scriptures prov ing that he was REDEEMED from the GRAVE at the cost of his Redeemer’s ! LIFE and that the Scriptural Hope, both for the Church and the World, • is a resurrection hope based upon the death and resurrection of Jesus. The book Is certainly worth the reading. The information It furnishes is cer tainly valuable, far beyond its trifling l cost. Order it at once from the Rible ■ and Tract Society, 17 Hicks Street, Brooklyn, N.
