Lesson (11 E. O. SELLERS, Acting Director of the Sunday School Course In the Moody Bible Institute of Chicago.) (Copyright, 1017. Wntern Newpaper Union.) LESSON FOR JUNE 24 THE PURPOSE OF JOHN'S GOSPEL (REVIEW READ JOHN 21:15-25.) REVIEW Read John 21:15-25. GOLDEN TEXT These ara written, that you might believe that Jesus Is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believ ing ye mipht have life through his name. -John 20:31. There are a variety of methods to be followed In reviewing the work of the past six months find to give va riety. Teachers of classes, or super intendents of schools, may select one or combine several, as their judgment dictates. Of course, the easiest way is to procure a good speaker who is familiar with the Gospel of John and the lessons of the past quarter, and let him bring out in the review its most outstanding and salient features. One method would be to have one minute talks either by members of the class or persons selected from the school. Each of twelve scholars could be assigned one minute, each to have one of the lessons of the past quar ter. Another good way would be to take tire outstanding and significant verses from the lessons of the quarter, not the golden text, but verses which seem to emphasize the outstanding features of the six months work. "Behold the Lamb of God," (Ch. 1:36): "Ye must be born again," (3 :7) ; "Come see a man which told me all things that ever I did; is not this the Christ?" (4:29) f "Verily, verily I say unto you, he that heareth my word and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life and shall not come into condemnation but is passed from death unto life," (5: 24). "I must work the works of him that sent me while it is day ; the night cometh when no man can work." Another method of review would be, particularly In the adult classes, to have each lesson with its present-day emphasis. For instance, the past quar ter: Lesson 1 The Christian in his dealing with blindness. Lesson 2 Modern wonders of healing and medi cal missions. Lesson 3 The shep herding of church members. Lesson 4 Do we know how to give? Lesson 5 Is Christ supreme in our national life? Lesson 6 Ambition and its cure. Lesson 7 The world's good springing from Christ. Lesson 8 Temperance reform. Lesson 9 The Holy Spirit in everyday life. Lesson 10 How Christ is betrayed and denied today. Lesson -11 The uplifting power of the cross. Lesson 12 Why men believe in im mortality. A good method of review would be to have someone take up each of the golden texts, announcing it in advance that pupils may be prepared for this method. The teacher would write the texts of the quarter, each on a sepa rate piece of cardboard, and lay them face down on n table; pupils would then draw the golden texts, one at a time, and tell what the lesson is to which this text belongs, giving as full an account of the lesson as possible, the teacher helping out with questions where necessary. It will be of great value to the pu pils if they can get in this review a dear .outline of the main events of Christ's, last weeks upon earth, cov ered particularly by the past quarter. There are forty standing events of the past quarters: (1) The healing of I he man born blind ; (2) Jesus the good et,r.iiotvi rz. Jesus sending forth the seventy; (4) Jesjis in Berea; (5) The raising of Lazarus; (0) The ten lep ers healed; (7) Bartimaeus at Jericho; (8) Jesus visits Zaccheus; (9) Jesus anointed by Mary; (10) The fig tree; (11) Triumphal entry; (12) Cleaning the temple; (13) Weeping over Jem salem; (14) The widow's mite; (15) The Greeks seek Jesus; (16) Prepara tion for the passover; (17) Washing the disciples' feet; (18) The Lord's supper; (19) The farewell discourse; (20) The farewell prayer; (21) Th agony in Gethsemane; (22) Judas be trays Jesus; (23) The arrest of Je sus; (24) Peter denies Jesus; (-o) Jesus before Ananias; (26) Jesus be fore Caiphas; (27) Jesus before the Sanhcdrln; (28) The mocking of Je sus; (29) Jesus before Filate; (30) Jesus before Herod; (31) Pilate con demns Jesus; (32) The sorrowful wait; (33) The crucifixion; (34) The seven last words; (35) Jesus dies; (36) Burial; (37) Resurrection; (38) Appear to Mary: (39) Appearance during the forty days; (40) The as cension. As brought out heretofore. John m-ts forth the purpose of this Gospel; namely, that -Jesus Is the Christ, the Son of God. end that believing on him we might hare everlasting life, eternal Pfe In hi name." (S golden text). PREVENTS SIDE DRAFT Illustration Shows How Evener Is Constructed. Two Ordinary Doubletrees, Good, Tough Stick, Two Iron Pulleys for Strong Chain and Two Braces, Are Needed. In response to numerous queries Wisconsin Agriculturist illustrates and describes a four-horse evener to pre vent side draft as follows: Two doubletrees of ordinary length, a good tough stick of which to make the long evener, two iron pulleys which will let a strong small link chain work through them, two bolts to go through tho pulleys, and two strap-iron braces over the pulleys, will be needed. The stick for the evener should be B feet 4 inches long, and the first pul ley will be put on 7 Inches from the right end of it, measuring to center of pulley. Measure 15 U inches from the center of this pulley and bore hole for the plow clevis. Now measure 30 Inches from the right end of this Side Draft Is Prevented. evener and bore hole for the second pulley bolt so that the two pulleys are 24 inches apart. It is best to bore two or three holes at the left end of the long evener. Put the first one 3 inches from the end and the others 2 and 4 inches farther in. This evener works one horse in the fur row and three on the unturned land with no side draft, say those who have used it. TELL ALFALFA FROM CLOVER Formation of Leaf Enables One to Dis tinguish Plants While Young Longer When Old. From the United States Department of Agriculture.) The leaf of alfalfa is divided into three leaflets, the middle one of which has a short stem, differing in this re spect from red and alslke clovers, in which the center leaflet is attached di rectly at the base. This difference in the two plants readily enables one to distinguish al falfa from red clover when the plants are very young. As the plants become older the leaf lets of the alfalfa become more elon gated than in the clovers. ' METHODS OF DOCKING LAMBS Burning With an Iron Is Favored by Kansas Expert- Wound Is Seared and Doesn't Bleed. When docking lambs the four feet of rho nnlmal should be held together tightly against the body of the. opera tor, points out A. M. Faterson, instruc tor in animal husbandry In the Kan sas State Agricultural college. There are two methods of docking. One Is bv cutting off with a sharp knife and the other is by burning with a docking iron. The latter is preferred, psnprlnllv if the lamb has a large tail. The hot Iron sears over the wound and prevents bleeding. If the lambs are old it Is well to tie a string around the stump to prevent bleeding. WHY ALFALFA TURNS YELLOW Examination May Indicate Lack of Effective Inoculation It Should Be Cut Immediately. When for any reason alfalfa turns yellow It should be cut immediately and removed from the field. A careful examination at such a time may indi cate a lack of effective inoculation, disease, or the need of lime. Yellow ing sometimes occurs, however, when all of these conditions are apparently favorable to the growth of the alfalfa. Food for Young Fowls.

BURSTING HEAD OF CABBAGE Trouble Caused by Rapid Growth and May Be Prevented by Breaking Off Some of Roots. Many persons growing their own vegetables have experienced consider able annoyance In having a large num ber of fine heads of cabbage to burst, before the vegetable can be used or marketed. The bursting is caused by rapid growth, and usually occurs after a warm rain which has followed a dry spell. It is surprising how rapidly the heads will split and push out from the center, which Is damaging unless the cabbage is used at once. To prevent -cabbage from bursting, go to each head, and pull it Just enough to break a large number of the small rootlets, but not enough to al low the head to fall or lean very much to one side. This will lessen the amount of moisture and food taken Into the plant and the development of the head, and consequently the burst ing will cease. In most cases the cab bage will remain perfect and unin jured, and can be sold or used before any damage results. Heads of cabbage about to burst, or even those showing the first split, can be kept for several weeks, without damage by simply following the above Instructions carefully. SUPERIOR ALFALFA FOR HAY Best Time to Cut Crop Is When Young Shoots at Bases of the Plants First Appear. In general, alfalfa should be cut for hay when the young shoots at the bases of the plants first appear. If these new shoots become long enough to be cut off by the mower, the new crop may be badly damaged. The blos soms often appear simultaneously with the new shoots, but blossoms alone are not a safe guide to the time for cut ting.
