How Hip grass grown in far-away
Sudan, cierne -to the ilcst-rt of Sahara
ami its blistering breezes, serving as
a palatable diet for camels, zebus
ami oilier queer animals, is now lin
ing iii)Mirlant service in feeding the
borse and cow of New Mexico, was
described Saturday by Prof. J. S.
Ilofer, of Tucumi'uri.
Prof. Ilofer lias been conducting
a small experimental farm and last
May be decided to plant a quarter
if a pound of Sudan tern. 'I be s !
used to be worth . 1 . 10 a pound, but
it is now down to in cents.
"I planted this on May 2d, and on
.tune I I started on some education
al work which did not Id m g.-t
1 1 1 1 1 ' until August I," said Prof.
"When I arrived nt Tiicumcari
some of my friends asked me about
the wonderful grass growing on my
farm and to my intense surprise
found it up to my shoulder. This
grass is a wonder. It is imten ilied
by drouth, the bugaboo nf so many
farmers, especially in tin south
west. I planted the seed in eight
rows, HO feet long. I got 20 pounds
of seed from this crop and probably
"on pounds of forage for my horse.
It is estimad d that three pounds of
seed should be planted to the acre.
I'.omiiig from the region fanned by
the parched winds of the Sahara
desert, it is imt surprising th: t this
Sudan grass crop can wax strong
where some en ps would dry up
and blow away.
"I examined the roots of the grass
and found Imii'lrc's of th s n t any
thicker than a lady's sewing needle,
which strike down into the earth
and absorb every hit of moisture un
til there is not. a ch -mical trace left
to waste. It is simply marvelous."
Mr. Ilofer predicts a lik- business
in Sud;.:i grass among the d y farm
ers of this state. It grows six feet
or higher, and every bit of it can he
eaten by stock. Where alfalfa has
not enoiiL'h writer t make it a good
crop this grass will do well. San

"What kind of work could yon
possibly do around an ollice?" "I'm
a kind n'aU'round handy man, mis
ter. I kin hold a door op. mi, l'glit a
match for ye, look out and see if it
is rainig, call a taxi, drop a letter
in the box, and tell folks yer out
when ye ain't.
Chit airy Still Exists
Chivalry still persists in mod. rn
warfare, as is proved by the exper
ience of a iion-coininissioiied nllicer
in a Haden regiment, who was
wounded in the recent lighting at
I. a Has.se between the (ioniums and
the Hritish. In one of the repeated
charges by which tin- cclehraled
brickyards changed hands so often,
the Jio-coiMIil-sloi:ed officer led a
squad to within fifteen yards of the
Hritish trenches, where he fell
wounded by six bull-K His colo
rad, s. who were forced to fall hack
to their own trenches fifty yi.rds
away, tried to carry oil' the body of
their supposed dead leader but were
unable to do so owing to the heavy
tire. Twenty-four hours lul-r the
Hritish discovered that the wound
ed oilicer was still alive and called
him to i ie to their trenches,
proinisin- him good treatment. He
was unwilling to do -o and instead
raised liims..f on his elbow ami
called to his friends:
"Koine i,,,. I ,),, ( wa( (1
be a prisoner of the Knghsb."
The (iermans shouted to the Hrit
ish a request for permi-sion (,, j,,,
after the wounded man. The llrit-i-li
promised not to shoot, and two
(crinan soldiers ventured boldly
out of their trenches, crossed the
intervening space and carried the
wounded mini back, not a shot be
ing tired and both Hnlish and (ier
mans joining in cheers. The story
is printed with approving comment
in the Herman papers.

Our lesson shows that the Israelite
did not appreciate their Divhiqly ar

splendor of the natlous surrounding
them, muí thought that be mise they
were different. It was to their disud
vnntare. Samuel was growing old,

was disappointed, but gave them no
answer until he had oouferred with
Cod. The Iord bade him imt to be of

reji" ted, but Cod mid His government.
Cud was willing to let them have their
e.vpei ion es wlili kings, and instructed
Samuel to Inform them fully what
would be the i 'Uise.Uti. e-i.
Samuel explained that the kings
would exercise mure or less autocratic
power nml would conscr'pt their sous
for servants, for soldiers nml for pub
lic works; that their libcities would
be greatly abridged; that their wealth
would more or less flow into the king's
coffers, etc.
Divine Foreknowledge Illustrated.
At the appointed time Samuel, hav
ing received Instruí Hons from the
Lord, came In contact with the future
king Saul, sun of Klsli. A herd of
nsses having strayed from Kish'sfarm,
Saul was sent to seek them. After
searching in vain, lie called upon the
Prophet to ask where the asses were.
The answer was that the asses were
found, but Hint Saul was to dine with
the Prophet In mi app.iluted placo,
where other gnosis ,-,,1 Lien invite.
The place of honor was given Saul,
wlio was astounded to hear the Proph
et speak of him us Israel's choice for
leader. He modest y called attention
to the fa. t that he belonged to a small
tribe-Heiijamln-niid that his family
was the least in It. But the rropliet
The next morning he was directed
respecting tils Journey In such n man
ner that he would have corroborations
of things that the Prophet hail Intimat

ences which would make him a chang

the Prophet drew forth a vial of oil
nml poured It upon Soil's held, iinolnt

pointment. However, matters were to
be kept so. -ret until a later time.
Saul's faith III the Prophet's declara
