SERMON TO WOMEN.
SAM JONES' PLAIN TALK TO MOTHERS.
He;Preaches to a Congregation of 8,000
Ladies Talked of the Evils of So
cietyDancing and Decollette Gowns
Points His Hearers to the Work
Wherein Their Influence Might Be
Great.
1 Atlanta Constitution. 1
"I want you women to show that
8,000 women can gather together and
be quiet. The men came out Sunday
afternoon and took their medicine.
Now, I want you women to take your
medicine. I know it will be a little
hard but it will do you a lot of good.
I will take this text:
" 'I beseech you therefore, brethren,
by the mercies of God that ye present
your bodies in living sacrifice to God.'
" I beseech you therefore, sister, I
will say. There are three adjustments
in this world. No one is adjusted un
til they first adjust themselves to God.
Then adjust yourselves to society and
then to yourself. Now, with these
three points carried you need have no
trouble that you cannot overcome.
"There is no relation in this world
from which so much g'od can flow to'
the world than that of mother. There
is no relation in this world that is
dearer and brighter to man than that of
wife. There is no relation in this
world that requires more piety, more
goodness than that of mother. To
mother let me talk a few moments.
There is no relation in this world from
which so much prayer and thought is
required than a mother for her chil
dren. Woman has1 vantage ground
that no man ever had. There's no
great man who didn't have first a good
mother and then a good wife.
Suppose that an angel was to come
down from Heaven and announce that
some mother had given birth to some
immortal child in Atlanta. How the
people would come from all over the
country to s& this child. And sup
pose it was announced also that if
the mother reared this child right it
would live in glory forever, but if she
neglected it, it would die and go down
to woe forever and forever. Do you
not think that people would rush to
Atlanta from all over the country to
see that child? All the people would
say what pains ihey would take in
training that child, so that it would
live and be immortal forever. But,
listen, mother, every child that is born
into your home is just that sort of
a child, and if you will nurture and
train it right it will do right and be
immortal. It is a fact that if you
train it right 'twill live with God for
ever. There are some texts in the Bible
that we can explain on no other hypo
thesis unless we consider that there are
good mothers, in Atlanta are 1,000
temptations for its young ladies. Good
God, give every man a good mother
and lei them live by a mothertha will
anchor ihem to the right and preserve
them to the good of this country.
At a mothers' convention held in
the east one mother arose and said: !
think we should begin to train a child
at six years of age.' Another mother
said she thought five years old was the
proper time and so on down. Then
an old gray haired grandmother got up
and said: I'll tell you when to begin
to train your children. Begin twenty
years before the birth of the child to
its mother.'
Whatever is true of mother is true
of wife. Listen! 'Ill tell you there's
many a man who would" never have
walked a step in righteousness if it
hadn't been for his wife. When a
man is better than his wife there is
something going wrong right there in
that home.
NINETEENTH CENTURY MONSTROSITY.
'I believe the greatest monstrosity of
the nineteenth century is a godless
woman a godless woman. I can un
derstand why a man sins. I can un
derstand why he will curse, and drink
and play cards. I have st' died these
things. But i lie gieau-st mystery hi
this world to me is that mother wln
sits and loks into ihee)ts of herswect
angel children ani says I am not cit
able of training these children in the
right way. Oh, how I pity a woman
who acknowledges thai she cannot
raUe her children aright.
' The days are evil. Sister, your
husband needs all the help he can get,
and God has placed you in a position
where you can help him more than
any one else in this world. (Aniens
f-om the women.) I don't believe
there is one mother in a thousand that
makes up her mind that she will sever
herself from everything that will . is
lead her children. There are thous
ands of little boys in Atlanta to-day
who are orphans in the most awful
sense of the word (aniens.) Every
woman in this house ought to have re
ligion that you know you have got.
I'd hate to admit that I had religion
and didn't know it. There's no en
joyment in such religion. I heard one
old woman say that she enjoyed good
health. That's
right.
If you've got
religion you ought to enjoy it.

Mr. Jones here stopped and drew
two pictures. The first was where a
little girl had a cross mother and every
time she went to her mother for a
thimble or scraps to make her doll a
dress that mother would scold her and
send her away. "By and by," said
Mr. Jones, "lhat girl comes to be
eighteen years old and she's just like
her cross old mother. If I had to
marry one I don't know which I'd
take, but I believe I VI take the old
woman because she'd die sooner and
get out of the way."
The other picture he drew was that
of a little girl with a kind mother
one who gave her little daughter just
ihe very kind of scraps she wanted to
make her doll a dress and bought her
a thimble just to suit her little finger.
"When tint girl come to le eighteen,"
said Mr. Jones, "she was ihe light of
h-r h line, a benediction lo the church
ami a pure, sweet girl just like her
mother."
'Then the evangelist continued in
his talk to mothers.
"Mother, you be true to your home.
Run the devil out of it and keep it as
oure as ihe morning dew. An angel
came down from Heaven one bright
sunny day. When he had lo go back
he decided to carry some memento of
the earth back with him. He gathered
some sweet fl wers, a babe's bright
smile and a mother's beaming love.
When the angel had reached the gates
of Heaven he looked and saw that the
the flowers had drooped and died, the
babe's smile had withered away, but
ibe mother's love! Oh, yes, it was
beaming still. It is the only that
reaches to heaven.
"I believe that if I had married a
society woman I would have been dead
and in hell long ago. But if I had
died in my sins I could not have looked

THE QUESTION OF MANURING CROPS.
How to Save the Manure from the
Stable and Barn -yard Best fTeth
ods of Applying it What Chemicals
Pay Best With These Manures-
Helpful Hints on Small Fruit Cul
ture, &c, &c.
Editor Farmers' Voice: By long
odds the most important question to
every one who tills the soil is that- of
manure. No matter what he grows,
whether it be the grossest staple or the
most delicate fruit or garden product,
his success depends more upon a wise
system of manuring than anything
else. It is also a question whose im
portance must increase rather than
lessen. Yor by far the greater part ol
the agricultural lands of the country
are yearly deteriorating, getting poorer
under the treatment they get. At the
same time competition is getting
stronger and the necessity of the use of
wisdom and economy in all agricultu
ral methods becoming more impera
tive. While my experience has lain mostly
in fruit culture, I have for many years
grown grain and grass crops as a rota
tion. My soil runs alt the way from
extreme sandiness to black muck in
one direction and to the closest red
clay in another. My experience has
covered summers so wet that even
grass would not grow, and it has con
vinced me that the usual methods of
crop fertilizing could be greatly im
proved by following a few simple rults
All stable or barnyard manure should
not only be saved, but saved in such a
way as to lose no part of ils value.
Manure in horse, stalls I leave un
touched till it is hauled out and broad
casted on the land. Cleanliness is
preserved by adding bedding as need
ed. If the stall is dry and enough
litter used, the accumulating ma
nure soon packs firm enough to form
a good floor, which is yet so absorbent
that not the least quantity of the liquid
manure is lost. Manure saved this
way has fully twice the value of that
treated in the usual manner. Thor
ough composting is, of course, excellent.
But where one man composts manure
properly, 20 carelessly throw it out
either to heat and fire fang or to be
leached by rains, either process render
ing it nearly worthless.
Manure from the milk cow stalls,
which have to be kept clean, should
be composted with kainit or some good
absorbent as fast as removed. The
barnyard proper should be so arranged
and protected from drippings that the
accumulating manure will not lose by
leaching. Straw or litter of some kind
must also be liberally used. But com
paratively few farmers depend upon
the above manures alone. Most of
them buy more or le.;s fertilizer be
sides. This is all right provided the
right system is followed. As far as my
observation goes the right sjstem
is not generally followed. When fer
tilizers are used in connection with
manure, it should always be as a sup
plement to that article, and their in
gredients should be such as to supply
the properties in which the barnyard
manure is deficient. Where a moder
ate quantity of this manure is used in
"connection wilh green manuring, (the
turning under of rye, peas or clover),
little ammonia (the most expensive in
gredient of fertilizers) need te bought.
What will be needed will be the com
paratively cheap ingredients, potash
and phosphoric acid.
Of all soils, and especially on sandy
soils, I find potash to be what is most
needed and what gives the quickest
and largest returns. It is the height
of unwisdom to use either stable ma
nure or green manuring without it.
One btindred and fifty pounds of
kainit or 100 pounds of muriate of pot
ash and 100 pounds of dissolved bone
well mixed and sown and mixed with
earth in the drill before planting, pays
irsrnst manifold on anv cron and on i
irs cost maniio a on any crop ana on
any soil that I have tver tried it. It
is also an excellent spring top dressing
for all kinds of grain as well as for grass
and clover. It will usually pay to.
use it much more liberally for this
purpose and where no stable manure
is used to add one hundred pounds or
more of nitrate of soda;
Orchards I would plow shallow and
top dress with the above in very early
spring if not done the fall before. Here
but little of thi nitrate will usually be
needed.
For small fruit I would drill in the
mixture before planting. I use as much
as 500 pounds per acre of it, being
careful to mix it well with the soil by
means ot a light harrow. Where in
tensive culture is to be followed (and
in fruit alxive all things intensive cul
ture pay-) heavy quantities of kainit
or muriate of potash or dissolve I bone
and bone dust can U; profitably ap
plied if broadcasted and thoroughly
harrowed in. Thus applied 1,000
pounds of kainit (or 250 pounds of
muriate of otash and 500 pounds
dissolved bene or bone dust is not ex
cessive. 1 find it to be also unsurpaased as
top dressing for small fruit applied in
February or March over plants at the
rate per acre of 300 pounds of kainit
1 (or 20 pounds of muriate of potash) and
200 pounds dissolved bone (cone oust
is too slow here). The result is not
only more fruit, but larger, firmer, bet
ter flavored, better colored fruit.

Arnold's Bromo-Cellery. Try this un
rivaled remedy for headache. Neuralgia,
Sleeplessness. lcts.
People often wonder why their nerves are
so weak; why they get tired so easily;
why they start at every slight but
sudden sound; why they do not sleep
naturally; why they have frequent
headaches, indigestion and nervous
Dyspepsia
The explanation is simple. It is found in
that impure blood which is contin
ually feeding the nerves upon refuse
instead of the elements ot strength and
vigor. In such condition opiate and
nerve compounds dimply deaden and
do not cure. Hood's Sarsajiarilla feeds
the nerves pure, rich, red blood; gives
natural oleep. j erfect digestion, is the
true remedy for all nervous troubles.

ARMOUR'S FERTILIZERS
The Fertilizers used should always sup
ply the plant with its fayorlte form of
food. It lias been shown at experiment
stations in the several IStates, and has
been the experience of toltacco growers
generally, that Dried Hlood contains the
best form of ammonia for raising fine qual
ities of tobacco. This is esix-cially so re
specting the bright variety. Our own field
tests fully confirm this, and as this form
of a'""10'" i the nianufac"' of
ur fertilizers. It can i readily see., that
the Armour Fertilizer Works are in
a position Ut offer the very choicest good.
Potash should w. in the form of high-grade
sulphate, as any form containing chlorine
will be especially injurious to tho leaf.

Yours of the mh in-.t. to Imml and noted.
In reply would say that 1 used last seavm
270 pounds per acre of Armour's All iSolu
ble Fertilizer on my tobacco, and must say
that 1 am we I pleased with the result in
every way. I made a good sized rich and
colory crop, more wrappers in it than I
ever made with eight to ten hundred
pounds ot low grade goods. My fertilizer
last year cost me ?4.'.W per acre, and on
crop of 1894 it cost me 00per acre. I
was then using a low grade stuff and my
iwj crop Is a great deal belter in every
way, heavier and not so much diseased,
notwithstanding we had quite a protracted
drought during the months of July and
August. My land is nearly all fresh and
Is light and gray. The lauds around jour
place will, 1 aoi sure, give good results
from the use of four to five hundred
pounds to the acre. It will make you a
fine crop of bright tobacco with good body,
size and colory. You can safely put out
Armour's Tobacco Ouano and have no
fear as to their results. I will cheerfully
give any information I can at any time to
help the farmers in your section to make
two-thirds of their tobacco crops good in
stead of as they are at present, making
two-thirds bad with low grade goods.
