(Prepared by the United States Depart ment of Agriculture.) Tuberculosis is rapidly increasing among hogs in the United States, and every owner of swine should be on his guard against the introduction of this serious malady upon his premises. Un like hog cholera this disease is insid ious in its attack and slow in its de velopment, so that it miy be present for months in a herd without exciting the least suspicion of tin: owner, and will be revealed to him only at the time of slaughter. Until recent years tuber culosis has been looked upon as of un common occurrence and only of impor tance from a meat-inspection stand point ; but today it must be recognized as a serious menace to the owner of hogs, and especially to the one who al lows his hogs to run with cattle that have not been proved to be free of tu berculosis, or who feeds them upon nonsterillzed products as part of their nation. As tuberculosis of hog is chief ly contractu through eating infected f ted. 'the importance of this statement Is obvious. Tuberculosis of hogs is closely asso ciated with the same disease in cattle, i the leason being apparent when one j considers the close relations of these j two species of animals upon nearly ev- ; ery farm. Tuberculous cattle may scat- i ter great numbers of tubercle bacilli i vith their excrement; cows that are ( tuberculous may produce contaminated milk that is subsequently fed to pigs; ' nnd carcasses of cattle that have died j from tuberculosis are sometimes eaten ' by hogs. The feeding of hogs upon creamery ; muse is also a very frequent source of infection. In this way the milk of a-siugle cow with a tuberculous udder, if sent to a public creamery, may j spread the disease to a number of j hogs, and may also infect many farms i .that have never previously been con- eliminated with tuberculosis. An equally dangerous source of in fection is likewise observed in the methods which obtain among some of the small country slaughter houses. It is not unusual for these houses to get rid of their blood, intestines, viscera, and other inedible parts by feeding them to hogs, a herd of which is usual ly kept on the premises. This custom U pregnant with danger and serves to perpetuate the infectious principle of various contagious and parasitic dis eases, particularly tuberculosis, t Hogs are also susceptible to tuber culous infection from affected persons and poultry, but these sources are un- Here is a tent made of strong, un bleached domestic, bound with red braid which will rejoice the heart of the small boy. It is about eighteen inches long and is set up on a frame of wood that supports a small rod of wood at the front and back. A third rod forms the ridge-pole. Four i tape loops are stitched to each side i of the tent and slipped over tacks in i the sides of the supporting frame. A little flag, a pair of paper soldiers and a wooden cannon, make up an outfit that will launch a delighted little chap on a military career a half minute ! after he discovers it.

"The everglade kite," said Baddy, "lives far down in the South. He loves ' the southern land best and this family of everglade kites I am going to tell you about lived in South America. "They are always called the ever glade kite family because they live in swampy land which has very tall grass. Mr. and Mrs. Everglade Kite were going to give a banquet and had invit ed their relations to come on the fol lowing day and to bring their children. "The day arrived and Mr. and Mrs Eh'erglade Kite were sitting on a shrub chatting when the guests appeared. " 'How do you do, my dear?' Mrs Everglade Kite would say. And Mr. Everglade Kite would flap a wing at one of his friends and say: 'Glad to see you, old chap. How are you? You look well. 'Mr. and Mrs. Everglade Kite were the color of slates, but they have dark er colors on their wings and tails, which are tipped with white. "Their bills were very thin and long and at the end they were hooked, so that they looked very different from other birds. Their bills and claws were black and their feet were of a beauti ful orange color. Their eyes had red rings around the pupils, which they thought were very fine. "The children were all shades of brown, tan, yellow and white. "'I think,' said Mrs. Everglade Kite to her cousins, 'that we have the best shoemakers in the world.' " 'I agree with you. my dear,' said her cousin. "'We really think so, too,' said Mr. Kite.

Intestinal worms, lung worms, and skin parasites also levy a burdensome tax upon the profits of hog raising. Absolute cleanliness will be found val uable in preventing and controlling these parasitic troubles, as well as the more serious diseases hog cholera and tuberculosis. i ' "How Very, Very Nice," Everglade Kite.

While the labor required by sheep raising is continuous, it is not heavy, and if properly supervised and made interesting by financial return can well be performed by boys incapable of other kinds of farm work. This fact Bhould be given consideration in many sections where farm labor is scarce. A collar box, a bag for brush and comb and a pad of shaving paper will please one's men friends, whether they travel much or not; but the traveler will be thrice grateful for them.

"The children played about and had a beautiful time, and soon Mrs. Ever glade Kite called to every one to come to the banquet. "It was served in a bush which was almost completely surrounded by tall grass. "Mrs. Everglade Kite was very fond of style, so she gave all the birds lit tle napkins made out of green leaves and they had plates of flat stones ' which were very small and dainty. "They were given knives and forks j of little twigs in case any of the food j was too much to eat without cutting it : up, though the birds all knew that it j was easier tor tnem to use tneir nooK ed bills than any knives and forks. "Still it did make a very fine ap pearing banquet. For their first course they had insect soup, and all the moth- j er relations said it was delicious. Of ( course they asked Mrs. Everglade Kite how she made it and the fathers asked . Mr. Everglade Kite where he got such very fine insects. "The children' didn't sk any ques tions. They just ate and enjoyed It thoroughly. . - "Next they had snake salad, which of course sounds quite awful to us, but then we think worms are pretty dread ful and yet we know how robins and other birds love them. "For dessert they had berry pudding with insect sauce, and they had fine swamp water to drink. They thought it was quite the best drink they ever had. "And after they had finished, Mrs. Everglade Kite passed around little acorn cups filled with grass extract, which took the place of coffee, and which was made out of the juice of the long grasses near Mrs. Everglade Kite's home. So one and all said it was certainly a real banquet." ty of scientists were excavating the rains of an ancient village, buried for centu ries under the drifting sands of the Sahara. They were searching for manuscripts but found nothing but crocodiles mummified croco diles. Half in dis gust one of the younger members of the party seiz ed a baby croco dile by the tail and clashed it against a ston, bursting it open. To his aston ishment out rolled bundles of manu scripts of every description ; legal doc uments, court records, bills of ex change, receipts for taxes and house rents, private letters of all sorts, and even a schoolboy's examination pa pers! The other crocodiles were also made to yield up the treasures with which they were stutted. Imagine the excitement when thev discovered that many of these "papyri" were written in the age of the Caesars and in the identical Greek of tiie New Testament. Great floods of light have been thrown by these manuscripts on the meaning of New Testament words, many of thera standing forth with a picturesque vividness never before seen. From the 'papyri" we now. know that the word in common use in the apostolic age for "title deed" is the word in our text above given translat ed "substam." "Faith is the title deed of things hoped for." What a find! An old saying has it, "Seeing is be lieving." Should it not read, "Believ ing is seeing" Here lies before me a crumpled, dirty five-dollar bill. It was issued a dozen years ago and has been handled by innumerable fingers, but the stamp of the United States govern ment on it is still plainly visible. Which one of its possible holders ever saw the five silver dollars it claims to represent? No one cares to see them ; the promise of the government Is enough. Here, "believing is seeing." My five-dollar bill is only a promise, and yet my faith in it is my title deed for things I hope for: .potatoes, flour, butter -and what not. But faith, to be valid, must rest upon the trustworthiness of the word of an other. The support of faith is always outside of one. A five-peso note issued by the state of Chihuahua, Mex, may be worth five pesos, and again it may not. That is where the bandit. Villa, lives, and the scene of his most spec tacular depredations. Is the state of ; Chihuahua solvent? And if so, will it continue to be so in case I want to re- j deem this promissory note? My faith in a promissory note is the measure of my confidence in the promissor. The very essence of faith is strik ingly illustrated in our word "amen." We use this ancient word every time we pray, but do we understand its meaning? It is really a Greek way of pronouncing an old Hebrew word. Je sus used it each time our version reads "verily, verily I say unto you." The old Hebrew word dates back to Back Feel Achy After Grip? COLDS and influenza leave thousands with weak kidneys , and aching backs. The kidneys have to do most of the work of fightingoff a cold or a contagious disease. They weaken slow up. Then you feel dull and draggy, irritable or nervous, and have headaches, dizzy spells, lame back, backache, sore joints and irregular kidney action. Give the kidneys quick help and avoid serious kidney troubles. Doan's Kidney Pills are always in unusual demand after grip epidemics as so many people have learned their reliability. Doaris are used the world over. They are recommended by your own friends and neighbors. Personal Reports of Real Cases A NORTH CAROLINA CASE. Mrs. I. L. Straughn, 1008 W. Lee St., Greensboro, N.

"Well, boys will be boys wherever you happen to find them. But I did hear an office boy whistling Beethov en's ninth symphony." Abraham's time, and earlier, only he called it "aman." Anything is "aman" that is solid, firm, secure and abso lutely dependable. Abraham and hia wife Sarah were old and stricken In years, but childless. God promised them a son in their old age in spite of the fact that, humanly speaking, such a thing was impossible. Romans 4 :19 21 describes how this startling promise affected Abraham : "Being not weak in faith, he considered not his own body now dead when he was about an hun dred years old, neither yet the dead- ness of Sarah's womb; he staggered not at the promise of God through un belief, but was strong in faith, giving glory to God ; and being fully persuad ed that what he had promised he was able also to perform." That is to say, Abraham recognized the fulfillment of this promise as entirely a miracle of God's power. What he said to God was, "Thou art 'aman.'" In other words, "Thou canst be depended upon ! Thy word is firm, secure, absolutely re liable." Abraham's rest of faith was in the almightiness of God and the faith fulness of his word, just as my confi dence in a five-dollar note rests in the firmness and the security of the United States government. God in his Word has offered to us eternal life in Christ Jesus. He tells me this is a gift bestowed miraculously irom aoove by the Holy Spirit. How my heart eagerly reaches out for this alluring prize. , He offers this to "who soever will." That includes me. I be lieve and it is mine. Faith is the "title deed" to things hoped for. My faith makes God real and his wonder ful salvation a blessed fact here and now; and "being fully persuaded that what he has promised he is able also to perform," "I rejoice in hope of the glory of God."
