A LITTLE church through dusty trees Raised up its wooden spire, One of religion's purities Amid our mortal mire, And one there came to open door Made timid by his sin, Made timid foy the mark he wore, And dared not enter in. iV while', he paused he heard a whir Beside him trembled down Another outcast wanderer. The swallow of the town. It fluttered through the open place. It mounted to the choir, Within the simple house of grace Poured forth its notes of tire. And he who lonely lingered heard And something fell away: He followed after singing bird Where sinners kneel to pray. Yea, there th4 old remembrance died And there the new began; for soon they worshiped side by side The swallow and the man.

(CoDrrlxkll V NEGLECT IS CAUSE OF LOSS Bulletin Given Out by Department of Agriculture Especially for Begin ners Gives Essentials for Proper Growth. .Prepared by the I'nltcd States Depart ment of Agriculture! The enthusiasm with which many poultry raisers, piirtlculaiiy begin ners, start In the spring with young chicks sometimes lags as the season advances und the chicks get old enough to shift for themselves, ft care Is neglected at this period, however, success is Improbable. The baby chicks may be smart little fellows from strong, vigorous parent stock, and they may have been brooded care fully for the first two or three weeks, hut unless they receive proper care and inatiageiiient during their later growing period they will not develop properly, and tunny of them w ill he lost foy sickness and disease. This Is the timely wurnlng made by poultry men of the United States Depart ment of Agriculture In Farmers' I!ul letlu 1111, "Munngcinint tf Growing Voting Chicks," published by the de partment, In which is given the essen tluls to proper growth and develop ment of chicks. The bulletin Is writ tea briefly and in simple terms for be ginners, especially members of boys and girls' poultry clubs. Suitable Food and Care. The chief essentials to the proper growth of chicks, according to the foul letin, are good coops, or houses, clean liness, proper feed und water, shade and free range. (rowing chicks should he provided with large, roomy coops or houses, which will give them ' u comfortable place to stay at night j and during stormy weather. The lull- 1 letlu suggests no particular kind of j house, but. states it should he so built that It will provide the chicks with Member of Boys' Poultry Club and Hla Flock. plenty of light, pure air and sunshine, and protect them from dampness and storms of nil kinds. Chicks should never foe crowded In brood coops, for crowding will cause them to become overheated, resulting In Improper growth and sometimes In dead chicks. Sickness or disease usually starts in unclean quarters, and in such places lice and mites are always more plentiful, the bulletin suys. The coops should be cleaned and sprayed once a week, and clean shavings, chaff, or sand put on the floor. Examine the chicks and houses often for lice und mites, nnd If found they shouhl lie gotten rid of at once. Funners' I'.ul letin 1110 gives directions for fighting lice and mites. Feed Right for Rapid Growth. The three kinds of feeds most nec essary for rapid growth are grain feed, green feed and dry mash. A grain mixture should be fed night and morning, giving as large a qunntity as the chicks will eat clean, but no more. A good mixture for growlag chicks consists of three parts cracked corn, two parts wbent and two parts hulled oats. Kafir corn or rolled or hulled barley may be substituted for hulled oats. A supply of fresh' green feed Is almost as neecssary as graltsfor grow ing chicks. They obtain plenty of It If they have free range, but If kept In confinement, luwn grnss, beet tops, cabbage, lettuce or other such green feed should be supplied regularly. Grit and oyster shells should be pro vided so the chicks may help them selves whenever they wish. Wheu sour milk enn be obtained It should also be kept before the chicks, as no feed Is regarded better for them. When this Is given the amount of beef scrap In the dry mash may be reduced one half. Plenty of fresh, clean water Is absolutely necessary, and In hot weather it should be provided twice dally in dishes that have been thor oughly cleaned. The bulletin emphasizes the Impor tance of free range nnd shade for growing chicks. They are necessary If chicks are to grow rapidly and de velop Into rigorous fowls. When growing chicks have free range they obtain quantities of green feed, bugs, woitns and other things, therefore they require less grain and are less liable to sickness and disease. STARTING HORSES IN SPRING i ' Watch Necks and Shoulder Carefully and Wash With Salt and Water on Removing Collar.

WHITE ANTS INJURE TIMBERS Insects Enter Wood Wherever It Comet j in Contact With Damp Earth and Eat Into Beams. Winged white ants are often ob served dying about houses In spring, mill are sometimes supposed to have come in from outside. The bureau of entomology of the fnlted States I partiaciit of Agriculture explains that these winged Insects really are hatched inside the buildings, and usually are to he taken as Indicating nests of wingless white ants working destruc tion In the timbers. These Insects, which really are not properly ants, enter the wood wher ever It comes In contact wlih damp earth, an I often cut Into the center of an upright beam without manifesting their presence on the outside until the wend Is entirely ruined, and posslbly a settling and cracking of the build ing has resulted. ! The department urges that build- 1 lugs he constructed with such founda- , timis that no wood touches the ground, or If it Is necessary to use wood, that I It be impregnated with tar creosote, j ('nil' rrte floors should be laid mi a I gravel base to prevent dampness and cracklnff. and where cracks occur they should be promptly tilled. UNIFORM PRODUCTS FAVORED Find Better Market, Bring Higher Prices and Are Handled at Lest Expense Than Others. Without uniform standards fur farm produce there Is no recognized basis for the hnslntss of buying and selling, says the bureau of markets, I'nltcd States Department of Agriculture. Standardization of products gives seller and purchaser a common lan guage and a set quality upon which prices may ie c'.inpnred anil fixed. Kx perlence has shown that the products which are sold by grade find u belter market, tiring letter prices, and can lie handled nt less expense than thosvsold without reference to standards. Stand ards have already been fixed for many farm commodities, such as American Upland cotton, shelled corn, wheat, oats, nnd for small fruit containers. These Federal standards apply only when the product Is Intended for in terstate or foreign ciymerce. It Is highly Important to secure state co operation so that the provisions that apply to a few products will apply to nil that are offered for sale. DIARY OF MUCH IMPORTANCE Well Adapted to Cost-Accounting Rec ordt When Information Wanted on Few Enterpritet. A diary is well adapted to cost accounting records when Information is wanted on only a few farm enter prises, say specialists of the Culled States Department of Agriculture, If the diary is written tip each day it takes but n moment to enter the hours and minutes spent in working the crop, and the necessary notes regarding the cost of seed, fertilizer, and equipment. The common form of diary is a hook containing n folank page for each day's record and with space In the back for financial accounts. Another form has a page for each day divided to give space to the records of two years. A similar type furnishes space for a five year period. Keep Incubator Clean. AfteT each Incubator hatch come off, the Interior of the machine should be cleaned most thoroughly. Sponge It out well ann then spray It with a good disinfectant. Utilizes Idle Land. The home garden utilizes idle Iind nnd spare time for food production. The use of vegetables conserves meats, grain and other food produced on farms. ' j 1 Zlp ON'K of the reasons for the peren nial return of taffeta to feminine .avor, for spring nnd summer frocks, Is Its durability.
