BUYING TYPEWRITERS ON THE mi mmi m JV We have on our desk a letter from a reader of our advertisement! who asks if we will sell him a type writer and let him pay for it on "the excitement plan" that is, to let him pay for It a little now and then, or whenever he feels like it. The suggestion was such a new and novel one that it seemed too good to keep, so we showed the let ter to our accounting department. They suggested that possibly If the right kind of advertising matter was sent this man we ought to create in him enough"excitment" for a Fox Typewriter to get cash In ad vance for it. That letter, however, contained a moral that Is a sufficient basis for a whole year's advertising. It Is this: Too many people are buying their typewriter on "the excitement plan." Mark you this: We did not pay paying for them as this man suggested, but we said they were buying them In this manner buying In haste and repenting at leisure. Every day yes, by every mail, we receive let ters from business and professional men who have purchased typewriters they supposed, at the time would be suited to their work, only to find later that they had made their selection on "the excitement plan," because some typewriter salesman, or some low-priced, catchy advertisement, had Induced them to purchase.. Any reader of the Beldlng Iianner who buys a tvnewrlter without thoroughly Investigating the Fox Is "buying on "the excitement plan" remember this, please, the next time you are tempted to part with a portion of your Income In exchange for any kind of typewriter. Our aim Is, and always has been, to build the Fox Typewriter so good that It will substantiate all of the splendid things our friends are saying about It Can he policy of any manufacturer be broader than this? We do not claim the Fox to be the only good typewriter made, but we do claim and our typewriter will substantiate this claim that the Fox Is Just a little better than the very best of the olhers. Send Tb-day for Catalog and Prices Write or call for catalog and take plenty of time before buying to compare the Fox with any other typewriter you have ever seen or heard of.

HICKS ' V -V : V Buttercups Art iiieat layers We have neglected sending in our item In favor of our favorite, the Hicl lian Iluttercups as requested, because we wanted to watch them a while lirst, but will now tell our experience with a few. In the early summer of 1!12, we procured a setting of eggs from Massachusetts. We took the best of care of those eggs and placed them under a good mother hen for incuba tion. We only secured three chicks, but they are lusty little things and all grew to maturity. One proved to be a splendid male bird and one of the pullets was very good both in color and marking. We took them both to the poultry and pet stock show In Krle In their tirst winter, where they were judged by the standard. The cockeral won first and pullet second. In just nine months after they began to lay one of the pullets laid .230 eggs and the other one 2 0 H , when they stop ped laying for the moult. They were kept by themselves so we know. In 1913 we hatched eggs from them and now have a Mock of 22 .'pullets from which we are getting from 1 2 to 17 eggs a day. In January, we received 306 eggs. A flock of them together attract the attention jrf all who see them by their bright looks. Mrs. V. F. 1 shell. Mooreheadville, Pa. Yvv For Seventeen Hens. Helding lianner: ileing a subscriber and a beginner in poultry . raising, I would- like to know the proper amount and kind of feed to give seventeen hens to get the best results for this time of the year. W. .1.11. , A, It is generally considered that one quart of mixed grain is sutllrient for 4 2 hens therefore, three pints would be about the right amount to feed to 17 hens at one feeding. We would suggest that 'you feed thief pints of grain in deep litter for the morning ration. Then at noon open up the dry food hopper and. allow them access to this until toward even ing, then scatter the usual amount of grain In the litter again. If you find upon investigation the next morning that the grain has not all been eaten up, then reduce the amount or skip the regular morning ration. The amount of feed is to be govern ed largely by the amount consumed, avoiding as far as possible allowing your fowls getting ton fat by giing phvnty of exercise. . Troubled Vili Swelled Head ( )rleans Mich. M. W. Hicks: t Dear Sir. In my Hock consisting of mostly Plymouth Rocks, some of the male birds are troubled with swelling of the head.

I have three troubled now with the same thing and would be very glad of your advice on the subject. It. C P. A. I think the trouble is roup, commencing last winter, and the sud den changes has started it again. I should get some good poultry powder and feed all the (lock a mash feed made of bran and nlddlingn.

Poultry Notes It may be that you can hens with poor feed, but surely get even with you eggs that are not up to the scratch. If you have more chicks than you know what to do with, it is all right to let them drink In deep basins.

SU DAY LESSON FOR JUNE 1 ACCORDING TO THE INTERNATIONAL SERIES Sl'CritF.D KXCLVSIVIXY iiy tiii: liAXM'.lt IX) H ITS MANY . iu:ui:ks Commentary Pit pa re 1 In An Inter estlng Way by Hev. I). M. Stearns Every Instance of healing or making the blind to see. the (leaf to bear, the lame to walk, was u sample of toe kingdom which will be set up on earth when the Lord shall take vengeance upou Ills enemies and recompense (Ila people, when Israel shall obtain joy and gladness and sorrow and sighing shuir flee away, when the inhabitant shall not say i urn-sick and the people sunll be forgiven their iniquity (Isa. xxxv. 4 tJ. 10; xxxlll. '-Mi. When the twelve and the seventy were sent forth they were to heal the sh k and preuch that the kingdom had come nigh. Our Lord Himself also as lie preached the gospel of the king dom healed all manner of sickness and disease iMutt. Iv. 'Si: i. 7, 8; Luke x. 0, 11). When the Pharisees askedabout the coming of the kingdom we must remember that tbey thought of the kingdom as described by the prophets, and iu t his they" were not wrong, for such u kingdom was even then at baud and will surely come at our Lord's return, according to Luke xlx, 11, 12; Acts 111. 21. Perhaps there Is no saying In the Scriptures more misquoted, misinter preted and misapplied than the words of ourfiolden Text as they stand. "De hold the Kingdom of (Jod fs within you." From these words It I general ly taught that our Lord will never hare a kingdom on this earth, when the nations will learu war no more and all kings and nations shall serve Him (Isa? II. 4; Vs. lull. 11). but that Ills kingdom is wholly spiritual In the hearts of Ills people, that the churcb Is Ills kingdom, that it begun to come at Pentecost and has been coming ever since, and that we are here to extend it. and that some day the church will couvert the whole world. Then he will burn up (he world and take all Ills people to heaven. Those who so teach have no use for a literal Israel, or for the coming of Christ to relgu. or for prophecy generally, or Daniel or Revelation in particular. The New Testament is quite sufficient, and much of that may be omitted. In reading our llibles we must al ways notice If !od is speaking either directly or through 11 servant or If the devil Is the speaker. Otherwise we might make the same mistake as the Judge who said. "We have the highest authority for saying all that a man hath will he give for his life." the Judge not having noticed that these words were from the devil (Job 11. A). We must also notice to whom words are spoken, whether to sinners or saints, to Pharisees or disciples. The words of the Golden Text were spoken to Pharisees, whom He elsewhere called "whited sepulchers, full of hy pocrisy and Iniquity, children of bell" (Mutt, xxlll. 1.. 27. 28). Our Lord would no more say to sucb that the kingdom of (jod was within them than you or I would say it to n drunk en man who was full of cursing. What our Lord did say is more correctly ren dered in the margin "among you or In the IJ. V. margin, "in the midst of you." He himself os the King, greater than Solomon, represented the king dom, but although in their midst and ready to set up His kingdom tbey would not have IIlui. but said. "We have no king but Caesar," "Not this man. but Harahhas." Then He turued to His disciples (verse 22) and spoke to thetu of His future coming as Son of Alan in flis glory (verses 24, 20. SO), telling them that He was about to bo rejected by the Jews and suffer at their hands' (verse 25). and that when He came again It would be as suddenly as the lightning shining from one part of heaven to the other, and that He would And at His coming again a condition of affairs on eartb similar to that in the days of Noah and as it was in Sodom in the days of Lot. This does not look Jike a con verted world to welcome Him. but rather as it is described In Rev. 1. 7; xi, IS. all kindreds of the eartb wail ing because of Him, and tbe nations angry, because It will be tbe'day of His wrath, when ne will Judge tbe nations and dasb them to pieces like a potter's vessel (Pg. II, 0; Isa. xxxlr, 1. 2; Ixvl. 15. 1G; Zepb. Ill, 8; Matt xxv, 31. 32. This coming of the Son of Man to Judge and reign Is not His coming to tbe air for His church, but His com ing in glory with His saints, wben tbey. too. shall share this honor with Him as It Is written In Ps. cxlix, 5-9; Rv. II. 2il. 27; Col. III. 4. See bow our Lord Indorses the truth of tbe record of the deluge, tbe destruction of the cities of the plain by Ore and brimstone from heaven, the Judgment upon Lot's wife, and because of the Judgments which will surely come urges His people to think more of tbe life that is life Indeed than of this present life, except ni It can be used for Him. There must be no looking back to tbe things of this evil age nor con formity to It. but a life of separation from it. occupied with Him who s our life and tbe things wblcb concern film and a readiness always lo he taken away from tbe eartb. Things are bad enough on tbe earth even now, but Iniquity will not be full until after the church Is taken awsj. Gobd Roads Department Conducted Especially for the Banner by- Hon. P. T. Colgrovc, President of the Mifchigan Good Roads Association. The desire to Improve the conditions of country life is the central thought of a very real and a rapidly growing campaign, dood roads, better schools, more profitable farming, nodal cen ters and a better distribution of labor are parts of the crusade, and the per sistence with which these and other toplca are discussed from the plat form and In the press is evidence of the vitality of the movement. If the results are thus far unsat isfactory, the reason Is to be found In the fact that no great movement is triumphant In a day. A good deal that is purely theoretical and Imprac tical has to be swept away, and the persons most concerned Iri the re form need to be enthusiastically en listed. The peroid of discussion must be passed before that of realization can begin in earnest. Hut there are signs of the near ap proach to the period of action and realization. Churches are coming In to a new sense of their Importance as social centers, and school buildings are being more generally used in the same way. Night schools are being established In country districts and these are being attended by grown ups afl well as by children. Granges and other country organizations are also serving to Increase the social ability of the people of rural districts. For these reasons, road improve ment Is a real and vastly Important factor in solving the problem of keep ing young people on the farms where they are greatly needed. It Is a ques tion of deep Interest to city folks, as well as the people of rural counties and vlllags. If agriculture is to be neglected the cost of living will sure ly become more and more alarming and burdensome. If the farms are not properly occupied and kept up, the decay of rural districts will cer tainly prove a heavy handicap to the centers of population and trade. In that respect the movement for good roads Is part of a great fight for the betterment of the conditions of life and work in the United States. It looks toward the cheaper produc tion and distribution of the necessar ies of life. It will help to make exis tence In comfort and safety less diffi cult in villages and cities as well as on the farm. The question is both economic and social. It concerns the future of the class which has ever been of national strength, satllty and security. In only a less degree It affects all other class es and vital Intresffc. Realizing the vast Importance of good roads, the United States govern ment has established In the depart ment of Agriculture a "Good Hoads Bureau" where expert knowledge of how to build a road, and what kind of a road to build to meet any given condition will be gladly furnished. Fortunately for the country at large a few states have done most of the experimental work, and they have ful ly demonstrated that the only form of highway capable of withstanding heavy traffic and the rapid flight of automobiles is one with a stable foun dation, well drained and with a wear ing surface of stone held together by some cementing material that will "stay up" which will not lose its binding qualities under the influence of climatic changes and the wear and tear of traffic. This is the macadam road. Any other form of road con struction Is, experience shows, sure to be a disappointment to road users and a bad Investment for the com munity that pays the bill. Now that the demonstration of the benefits of Improved highways has been made, and the way to build good roads has been pointed out, the most important thing Is to keep closely to the best road building practice and avoid wasteful expenditure of time and money upon untried fads and demonstrated failures.
