Tho Jews had no country of their
own. They could not possess the land
of their fathers in reality. So they
made a portable Palestine. They car
ried it wherever they went. This was a
spiritual country. It could not be as
sailed by their oppressors.
There have been two conceptions of
the Jew-one that he lends money and
wants it back again, the other that ho
deals in old clothes. The truth is Jews
hmve been everywhere. They have
been everything except pope of Rome,
and they have come near to that. It
they dealt in old clothes it waS because
papal decrees forbade them trading to

Jews in a way were as good as Unit

Jew was converted he lost his value.

A good looking Jew was considered
the fool of the family, which is conso

The black plague swept over IDurope.
The Jews escaped by reason of their
different hygienic laws. The Christians
charged them with poisoning the wells,

Oeath for not dying of the plague,
C colonel Roosevelt told me that the
lows of his regiment were among his

said: "By taking the spoon I broke

taken it I would have broken the tenth,
which says, "Thou shalt not covet.' t
saw I had to break one commandment
anyhow, so I thought I might as well

It has always been the desire of Jew.
ish fathers, however rich, to have learn

find this custom prevalent today.
To illustrate why there are no good
Jews in fietion Mr. Zangwll related
the story of the lion and the cub. Te
cub had seen a painting of Samson
vanquishing the lion, and said to Its
parent: "i have seen many contests
between lions and men, and always the
men have been the victors. Why are
there no pictures showing lions over-.
powering men?' "It is because we
lions have no painters," was the par
ent's reply.c
The Jews have been scattered to theC
four winds among all the nations of
the earth. They have been of immense 1
service to every country that has lhar-t
boredl them. It reminds me of the story
of the crocodile which opened its mouth
so that a bird might go into it and eat
the leeches which annoyed it. There
was mutual benefit from the operation.
It is not strange that sometimes the
Jews find the crocodile's mouth closing
upon them. It was natural that Jews
should congregate around their syn.
gogues. They became to some extent
isolated from the people among whom
they dwelt. This isolation brought with
It suspicion, and suspicion caused more
isolation for mutual protection.

How the Youth'u Dodily Vigor Stood

Young Lincoln's bodily vigor stood
him in good stend in many ways. In
frontior life strength and athletic skill
served as well for popular anusement
as for prosaic toil, and at times, iii(leed,
they were needed for personal defense.

neighbors took a becoming interest.
There was not far from New Salemi a
settleient called (lary's (rove, where
lived a sot of restless, rollieking young
backwoodsmene with a strong likiug for
frontior athletlcs and rough praetlena

mtravagant praise of his clerk, who,

by ti'ttle aid the desired oval form for
the highway secured; the road Is per
fectly smoothed; the travel, there be
Ing no rits, is distributed over quite a
wide surface, impaeting the little fresh
gumbo placed on -top of the road. Aft
or a few treatments the road begins to
take on a perfect form and the rain lo
shed from it as water is from a duck's
back. In a year or two there is formed
a gumbo cement crown or crust over
the road from six inches to a foot in
thickness, which is almost impervious
to water, and simply because the wa
ter cannot peietrate this crust the
road remains good.
The cost of such a machine is not to
exceed $2. T'ihe cost to treat the high
way in the mainer indleated Is not te
exceed $3.50 per mile per* year. Dirt
and gumbo roads so tre.ted last year
were firm and good roads thh sprIng
when all other roads not treated were
almost impassable.
The secret of the success of this
method lies in going over the road fro
quently, after every rain at leait. This
prevents the road from getting bad
rather than repairing it after It is bad.
The formation of this puddled cement
ed crust over the road secures distribu
tion of the travel over its surface and
prevents the formation of ruts, which
are always the beginning of future
The most astounding results have
followed the adoption of this method
in Missouri. Whole neighborhoods have
taken it up and secured fine country
roads where before it was not possible
for theni to be worse.
The plan prompts the farmer to make
his own drag and operate it on the
highway which borders his fari ide
pendent of road tax or road boss, and
the rewards are so pleasing that he re
gards the work as a pleasure. Back
and forth over the road about twelve
times during the year does the work.
The first year's work Is the hardest, as
most highways lack conformity to an
oval type. This comes little by little,

One of the leading railways of Iowa

value of this new method of treating
the dirt roads that it organized a good
roads campaigi by which the people
on its line have been reached and the
method explained and practically deni

greatest encouragement, and at every
town visited .iarge sums were sub

would care for the ronds under this
plan. It really looks as though a prac
tical solution of the problem of unak
Ing a good earth road had been found
at last.
Ieonomy In the pro(.nct!on of farm
crops has been but ltte conaidered up
to this time. But few farmeri know
what their crops cost them. They
draw on the latent fertility of their
soils just n a man draws on his ae
count at the bank, only most of them
forgot to make deposits to draw
against. The manufacturer does differ
ontly. He regards It as a most vital
thing connected with the success of his
busliees to know Just what his product
costs, and if thero be any way where
by such coat of production may be0 re
duced he very quickly avails himself of
it. Some men raise corn at an expense
of but 15 cents a bushel, wvhile it costs
sonme other men 5 0 cents. One man
will feed a beef animal and mnake men-1
ey on It; more foed cattle and lose mon
oy in so doing. Ignorance of the busi
ness lie, at the bottom of failures In
farming, because what one man does
another man could do if lhe only knew
how. More men want to know how
thani ever before.
At ail the sugar refining plats' the

in a few years the value of molasses as
a stock food has been developed, and
some very surprising results have been
obtained. It has been found that with
the heavy draft horsea of Newv York
etty a ration of ten or twelve pounds
of rnolaapse per day has effected a sav
ing of 25 per cent in the cost of feed
ing such horses, with an added umn
