Farmers Should Raise
Well-Bred Horsss
Should Plan To Meet European De

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

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

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,

medicine, giv6 the whole flock a dose

The extraordinary driving force im

that through a shop floor laid down in

“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

Doubtless they
were deterred by
fear. Crowding

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-

Fight Against Hoof
And Month Disease
Statement From the Secretary of
Agricultural in Regard to the
Federal Measure.
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
