Chetwood, Church of X  ' the Holy Communion, 5  New York. ��  Ask, and: It shall be given you; seek,  and ye shall find; knock, and it shall  be opened unto you. For everyone  that asketh receiveth; and he that scek-  , eth findeth; and to him that knocketh  it shall be opeued.���St. Matthew, vii.,"  7, ������  These words proclaim an unchangeable, universal, eternal law of the  ,Wngdom ol God. They are not a threefold repetition of a' single thought.  They are rather an announcement of  tha three' successive .stages in the u[h  ���ward progress of the one law of desiring and obtaining. Thcscsteps arc not  interchangeable. Seeking, is not asking. Knocking is neither asking nor  seeking. Asking is desire; seeking is  ' desire in action; knocking is active de-  ���ire concentrated upon a. definite pur-  <   pose and plan. r/  '- The words of the text are, we bc-  *  (     Move, not   the language of a "charac-  - -"   ter*^ in fiction, but   an    utterance   of  Christ Jesus.   Two of their most im-  ,  -�� pressive qualities are their unquestioning   confidence   and    their , unlimited  scope.   There is no suggestion in them  of doubt of the reality of the law; no  ���bint of'a limit to the law in time or in  ���pace or in the nature of things. Ask,  ���seek, knock, at any time, anywhere and  for  anything,   and   you   shall   leceive,  you shall find, it shall be opened    to  you.    Painful    or pleasant,    good, or  ���what ii thought to be evil, what you  wish for, what you look for, what you  work for,.you shall have.  ���The lesson of the reality   and    the  universality of the law of desiring and  obtaining is hard to be learned.   Like  Vrther hard lessons of human life, this  -^     is to be learned only by    experience.  Man gets opinion and belief'from observation.    Experience    alone    brings  knowledge.    When one  has seen the  fulfilment of a law of God's kingdom  in his own life, he knows that the law  is a real.   This is the foundation of his  faith in the law and in the God expressed in the law.    His faith, too, is  ���the real faith, which results from real  .understanding,   which   grows    out   of  teal knowledge acquired by man in his  < v   town individual experience.    No argument can shake such faith.   No denial  ean destroy it    Once attained  it is  teimortaL  *' w��uld- seem  that, this    kind  of  knowledge was the foundation of the  faith of Jesus 'Christ in the reality and  tire universality of the  divine law of  desiring and receiving.    He    believed  that the law was real and unlimited because He saw and felt its operation in  the concerns of His own holy life. He  knew that what He asked was being  given to Him;  that He was    finding  What  He  sought;  that   the doors  at  -!wl��ch  He knocked  were    opened to  'Him.   He lived to do good to others.  (He desired, He attempted, He planned  to -do good to them, and the sick were  wade well, the lame walked, the blind  saw, the deaf heard, the .dumb talked,  Jepera were healed, the dead were raised and broken hearts were   mended.  'How could He doubt the reality of the  . law when the law was fulfilled in Him-  .  Self?   How could He question the universality of the law  when  He found  that whatsoever good He determined  . to do, and whensoever and wheresoever He determined to do it, the good  vas done?   This was  actually receiving what He asked, finding what He  sought,  the    opening    of    the  doors  through which He purposed to pass !  Prom the point of view of human  experience there was nothing peculiar  in the earthly existence of v Jesus  Christ. Tested at all points as all humanity is tested," Jesus found what all  humanity finds���the knowledge that  results from experience, the understanding that accompanies knowledge,  the power, the faith, the love that  fcome from understanding. He came  into this world a baby groping after  power with almost aimless hands. At  the end of His experience on earth He  went out from ]His cross the God-  man, endued with all power in earth  ^jid iij heaven, Because we believe  that the faith of Jesus in the reality  and the universality of the law of desiring and obtaining was an outgrowth  from His experience and that His experience was in no essential particular peculiar to Himself we believe the  tlaw to be as real for all as it w.is for  Him, as real for ourselves as it is for  all others. More than this, we ourselves grow into actual faith in the  roality oi the law because we find it  fulfilled in our own experience, whether in the good which we have desired to do or in the mistakes which  we have undoubtedly made.  Whatever we may be doing, therefore, wherever we may be doing it,  we will have faith that God gives to  those who ask and seek and knock,  and that if wc desire them and seek  them, and knock for them we shall receive in due time, that is, in God's  good time, all good things���all the  knowledge, all the understanding, all  the wisdom, all the power, all the  faith and all the love of 'which Iiu-  'inanity is capable! ���  Tha  report   that  Mr.   Joseph  Pulitzer,  tho proprietor of The  New York World,  lias  given   ��200,000  to   Columbia  University for the formation of a school of journalism,  and has promised another  -��200,-  000, in three years' time should the scheme  provo successful, natuially directs attention   to an experiment on a more modest scale    which  has for nearly a year  been carried   on  at  the City of London  bchool,  sayb   The  London' Daily  Chronicle.    It was  tlie outcome  of a convor-  sition  between  Mr   "William Hill,  a distinguished  journalist,   who  has  since directed   the   class,   and   a   gentleman   of  ���wealth   keenly   inteiested   in   the   futuio  of  journalism,   who   agreed   to   And   the  funds for  the enterprise.    This .included  a "George Stpovens Scholarship"* of ��-100,  to be" awarded each year to the most pio-  mislng   student,   who   -will   thus   be   enabled to make a tour of the world.   The  Invitation 'to  the  boys of  the  school  to  Join ,the  classes   i exulted   In   the  eniol-  ment of ten, and one of these by rhe ei>d  of next month -will,-as the result of the  examination latel> held, be in a position  to start on his travels    .All working jcur-  rnalists are agreed that it is as hopeless  to try to teach journalism in theory and  by lectures as to learn swimming on dry  land.   Nobody appieclates this moie than  Mr. Hill, and his training has been a judicious  blend  of   theoiy" nnd    practice,  which, only in  this particular  let it  be  ���said,   suggests  Mr.  Squeoi--"    It   will  he  remembeied that Mi. Squcers m cm lining his system to Nicholas Nickleby, said  to a trembling urchin, "Win-der���window,  now go and clean the windows."   In like  manner (he students  in  tho  journalistic  class at the City of London School, having  had   reporting  and   sub-edltlng  and  interviewing spelled  to them,  go and do  them,  and   have   thus,   even   <n    i  l-uef  time,   learnt   more   of   the   calling  than  ���years of mere clash  teaching couid have  given  them.    The  nges  of  Hie  tp-i  <-tu-  denty vaiy fiom  fifteen to  nuieu-jn, but  journalism knows no ages, ad bo U was  unnecessary to divide  them     There were  considerable difficulties in the way, however.

It rauit he urder-  s,tood.  nes  outsiae   cne  regular  worlc or  the school, with all Its demands u,-,on the  time and nttention-.of the students, and  tho   Instruction,   in   a   formjl   v, ly    lias  been-limited 1o an  hour and a half's loc-  turo   or  exercise   at   the   school   on   two  afternoons in the week    As a matter of  fact,     the    class  gnthered   for  piactical  training  on   a   number   of   other  occasions, and to this leason may be ascribed principally the -success which has been  achieved. -      ���  At   the  eailiest  meetings,of  the class  practical  matteis   associated    with    the  printing  office, were   explained,   and   at  intervals   during   the session  they have  visited  the  offices   of  three  dally newspapers   and   seen   them' in   the   making.  The second staire was to instruct the students in the essentials of leporting, and  m addition to exercises in the classroom  they have writtc-n descriptive accounts of  meetings,  of  Uo  State  piocessions  and  the   Cattle  Show     The  accounts  of  the  King s progress through London and the  -rorii Mayoi 's I11 ocession  were  published  Jjitne first and second  numbeis-of tho  Steevens Gazette,"-  and    these   issues,  running to foui  and five  columns, were  Posted before 0 o'clock  on tlie  evenings  Jm.       days on whlchrthe events occuired.  in�� boys wet-e also put through a stiff  course of instruction in sub-edi ting���part  of  the work  being  performed  amid the  distractions of a newspaper office; tests  ?. sele<-*tion of news .and the discovery  of news  topics   have  been  appLed,  and  the indefatigable   Mr.  Hill   actually  induced three well-known1 puolic men to  submit   to   Interviews,���ten - students   at  twenty1 minutes each���and to pass judgment on the results.   Several specialists,  'such as Mr. H."H. S. Pearse, Dr. Horowitz, Dr. Ernst, Mr. Alfred Robbins, Dr.  Robertson   Niooll,    and    Mr.   'Frederick  Greenwood,   have   lectured   to   the   students  on war,  foreign  and London correspondence,   reviewing and  "the  higher  aspects of journalism." Finally the scholars have produced, with the veriest modicum-of supervision on the part of the director,   a full-sized  newspaper,  No. 6 of  i The Steevens Gazette, which,  if it were  not priced at  half   a crown,   might  en-  Joy a large circulation.   Perhaps the best  test of  the  training  the  students  have  enjoyed  Is   that  already  tlnee  of  them  are engaged in actual journalistic work,  Ihe'experlment Is to run for a period of  three years, and already Mr.  Hill is so  satisfied  with   its   success   that   he   confidently looks forward to a great extension of the scheme  on a broader basis.  It is understood that eight weeks ago tho  donor- of  the   scholarship    arianged    to  carry over the  scheme,  at  the  close of  the experimental period, as a department  of  the  University  of Technical  Instruction devised by Mr.  Haldane and championed some three months ago  by Lord  Kosebery.    It  will   therefore   be   noticed  that not only did London lead New York  In   the   matter  of  programme,  but  that  London will In three years' time be somewhat in the position of the United States  in the matter  of'general instruction 1��  journalism.  A Suppressed Novel.  Some    tea    or    twelve    years    ago  there appeared in London   a   book, entitled    "Dr.    Phillips/'    the    name    of  the   author    being   given    as    "Frank  Danb7,",    It   was   a   book   of   an   exceedingly    realistic   dharacter,    written  witih  extreme frankness and with intimate  knowledge   of  a  certain  kind   of  Jewish life���fcliat is to say, the life which  is led by orthodox Jews of tlie well-to-  do middle class.   The principal character  of the book is a^Jewish physician  of  great talent who is married to a dull,  tat, affectionate woman who is no "coitf  panion for him, and who bears him no  children.    Dr.   Phillips   lives   ostensibly  tho life of a popular family doctor, but  all  the  time  he  is  carrying  on,an  intrigue with a beautiful   Englishwoman,  whom he met when she was c governess,  andjvjxom he has installed in a house of  her own.    This dual existence  leads tc  complications  which .become   more  and  more difficult, especially when a young  Englishman of good family and of great  nttraotiveness meets Me English girl and,  knowing nothing of her sitory, falls  in  love with her and proposes marriage.   A  friend of his in like manner falls in love  with a young Jewess in the samej set,  and rouses the horror of her intensely  orthodox parents., The book throughout  is'hard and cynical, but it gives some  wondei fully vivid pictures of Jewish life  It became known that the author of it  was a woman, and it, was suspected that  in Dr, Phillips she had drawn" the portrait of a well-known London physician.  This  person, was' so   incensed   that   ho  caused the book to be suppressed by legal means. * Not -*]onjr after." the novel  era probably remember, Queen Alexandra, in a book ol "tastes," is .said U  have put down millinery oa her favorite  amusement.

"My early return,"-he said, "Is no  'doubt a sui prise.* The war had hardly  broken-outr however, before JC, resolved  to takeUhe first opportunity, to reach  borne.' Mr. Saybrook had constantly  assured me In. his letters that, there  could be no outbreak of^war, so I had  xiot:been led^to anticipate It. But when  I found that I-was really shut out from  my native land In her hour of peril, and  when I came to think - what changes  might occur during the,progress of the^  ,war,all interest "in my studies deserted  me,, and-1-could think of nothing but i  the ways and means to return home. I;  left Dresden and went to( Hamburg and  other- Dutch ports, t but could find no  vessels going to America- ,1 then went  to France, as I had, heard i that occas-.1  Bionally an American privateer would  avoid the British blockade, 'and run  Into port for repairs. I went to Calais,  and after waiting there until I^was almost discouraged, 1 was gladdened one  day by learning that a schooner^had  escaped the blockade and run into tho  harbor, and was probably an American  vessel. I tools a boat and went on  board, and found, to my Joy, that it was  an American 'privateer. I 'at once offered the captain to ship with him as a,  common sailor, and, as I,wasj an Amerl-  'can, ht took me at once.^ On;our return  I was hurt In an engagement with a  (British brig,' which accounts for my  (Weak" condition.'

"I think it needs no  (Words to tell how truly Rosa and I love  each other. No one else'can ever fill  her place In-my heart.

The  young/man   spoke  with   much  emotion, and his evident suffering ana  pale, emaciated featiues,, added to tho  apparent slnceiity of his declaiation.  "You are , sure you speak honestly,  Claude?" asked Mrs  Biuyn.  "As I live, I do," leplled the young  man, fervently.  "I do not question the truth ot your  ���statement," continued the good lady;  "but perhaps it Is well to have an explanation of a matter that I confess has  influenced my opinions to a ceitaln extent Not many months ago, Mr. Saybrook exhibited a letter from you that  seemed to Indicate that you had formed  connections In Europe that-hardly ren.  der your present f statement of your  feelings toward Rosa sincere." ,  The "young man" colored, but It waa  IWith Indignation more than embarrassment * ���*-  j "Carl Crum has told me," he replledj  "of the base use made of a mere phrase  In a letter of mine, written in humorous  reply to some of Mr. Saybrook-a suggestions that I might have become Involved In love affairs in Euiope I now  Bee through his double-eyed duplicity  and villainy?

' VThls decision seems hard," he said.  . "I am fearful���but, no, I will do as you  ''Bay. (��� I am strong In my own sense of  Integrity; I may have been foolish, but  criminal���never. I think all can be explained, and I will trust in Mr. Bruyn's  Justice, and charity."  I (With this understanding the Interview  terminated. Claude was, allowed to  iglve Rosa a farewell kiss, and ;to whisper to her a pledge of his unalterable  devotion, < which was returned ' by a  glance that assured him that she could  be trusted to the uttermost and then  he turned away his soul filled anew  ,wlth Indignation toward the author of  his unhapplness.  He took early occasion to have ah Interview with Mr. Bi uyn. The old farm-  fit received him curtly, and only after  Ithe most earnest plea'dings gave his  consent to even hear his explanations.  But this concession was of no benefit  to the young manu The old fellow shut  both his cars and his heart to hisj>le&d.-  tngs, and remained obdurate and unconvinced in spite of all the earnestness and eloquence with which Claude  -defended his conduct,  I  'aisappolnted and miserable, and meditating a dozen expedients in his mlnd^" >  to restore his relations with Rosa.       C^  CHAPTDR XXX , j  , Recognizing that he had a hard ba<-\  tie before him, Claude devoted himself  heart and soul to the contest he had  in hand. The thought of regaining his  property, and taking revenge on the  knavish lawyer, was some relief to his  wounded feelings. There was bafm iq  action, at least, and day and night he  gave his time and thoughts to'con-sulta-'  tion with his lawyer and to details Ot f  the proposed suit' He did not_ rely,  alone on such-legal talent as the little  village afforded. He retained the services of an exp.iienced and prominent  lawyer from a neighboring town.^who  undertook'to unravel the thread"-of  villainy, which he was convinced from  Claude's statements had been - perpe-  ���trated by Anthony Saybiook. (  (  I  The name of this lawyer was Hals- ���  tead.   He was a short, keen, cool man  whose sharp gray eyes and broad brow^ j  Indicated   unusual   mental    acuteness,*  lAfter a careful study of the situation,,,  Mr. Halsted decided on his plan of cam.  paign.       He     Hetermined      that   " it  ,was    necesoary    to    undermine  ,   the  enemy's defences by counter-plots, and,"-*  If possible, to cieate a defection in hie -  camp that would load to a revelation ������'  of the methods by which the foigery, ���-  rof "the   deeds  had  been   accomplished."  'Choosing his  agents  -s\ ith  keen  Judg- > '���  ment, he sounded every person who~had  In any way been employed"by lawyer  Saybrook, and was not long in getting ''  a hint  that  the  widow* Giewy  wouid.' ,  become a valuable w ltneus if she waa"  won  over to  the \   service.    And  this   ���  ���alas   for   feminine    constancy'���was   i.  not a difficult r -.tter.    Lawyer Hals-    *  tead, it ' appened,  was_a bachelor, of    '  considerable   wealth.   -Though   verging 1'  close on to si*-ty, he was still well pre-   ,  seived, and of a gallant and vivacious '<;  disposition not unlikely to Impiess the  *-  fancy of a susceptible and lonely widow ,  ��� like Mrs   Grewy.

BLAD worked ho*rd at my art for  years  ���without  more  recognition  than artists get from publishers  or editors who want designs for  title-pages -and book illustrations,  and' more  than once I had felt  faalf tempted to throw the whole thing  aside and emigrate, or enlist; or do something that -would have been equally foolish.   But the thought of ITelen Tresha.ni  &ad,kept me,going, and h��d made mo  brave when my own natural inclination  Would havo led me  to mere oowardice.  While I was working in London she was  (toiling away at her governess work in  Bt. Petersburg, saving till that she could  towards tho 'home which wo had set our  minds upon making in England!   At that  time  she  used   to   write   me   hhe most  eheery of letters���always bidding me hope  and trust���the kiwi, sympathetic, helping  ��ort of letters that good women do write  to the men they love.    Sometimes she  Used to blame herself for living in such  luxury as she did (she was goycrness to  Ihe family of a Russian prince who lived  in a/palace), while I was slaving n.way in  dreary London chambers.   But then she  ���would naively add, her salary was so  good that slip could save a, great deaT  , of-money  out  of it,  and  every  pound J ing an absolutely original i emails, that  saved brought nearer  the  happy   time.  ,*  lAfter I road one of her letters, I used to  ���work  feverishly,  for  I  wanted  her   to  l come back to me, and I had made "up my  'mind that* I would never'ask her to do  that until I felt sure ot success. , ���  At last���what a long time it had boon,  and yet how quickly we forgot it when  it, was once overl���the time of waiting  came to an end and our happiness began.  '  IAt last my success was assured, and the  people who had flouted or scorned me  began to speak of me respectfull}' as a  rising artist.   There was no more need to  execute pot-boilers���nay,  bheie  was no  longer necessity  to  work  moie like   a  ! ������'���lave than a man.   Success became a certainty���it  was no  longer a matter.of  speculation,  hut   rather   a   question   of  degree.   I had both feet firmly planted  tin  the  ladder���the  only  problem   now  Vas how far I should elimh towards the'  top.   And so Helen and I were married  land settled down in a South Kensington  Hat, I to work at my art, and she to direct, counsel, and inspire���all of which  jn-omanly dutios came  to  her .with natural lavishnes's.   What childien we were  in* those first happy days, and what n  paradise our small establishment seemed  to our eyes,' blinded by  love's roseate  ��� Jtints!   I think we played at life for the  slr*t few weeks, but after that we woke  'lip to realize that life is a matter of  jtrarklfcy, and so came sober reflection and  r Wteady -work in Its train.   It was at that  toerkxl of my career that I painted,, my  picture of the balcony scene in "Romeo  and Juliet."   Helen sat to me for Juliet  '������I had never seen a woman's face that  BO adequately realized my own .concep;  lion of Shakespearo's girl-heroine.   I ae-  ieoted   the  moment  when  Juliet bends  fcrom the balcony to tell Romeo why she  Would have back her love  round again the r man had gone���there  was no one in the room but the police-  man,and myself. -I sauntered lound the  room again, nnd stopped near my owr,  picture. The policeman was looking al  something which he held in his hand., He  glanced at mo and saluted mo confidentially���-almost appealingly. '"Beg pardon,  sir," he said, "but what might this heio  be? It's money o' some sort, hut I don't  know what 'tis. That foreign cove that's  just gone out dropped it into my hand  as "he-'went���I reckon it's not worth  much���looks like a bit o' dirty brass."  I took ,the coin in my ��� hand and e\*-  ���anined it carefully., It was dirty, nnd  a. little vara, .but it vu a-Tiuaaiiin jm.  perial rduble for all that. "That's a very  nice tip, my man," said* I, bending the  coin back. "It's a Russian gold coin, and  its English value is about'' thirty-two  shillings."  The policeman turned more colors than  one. He stared from the coin to me, and  from me to the coin,  "It must' ha' been a mistake," he  gasped. "And'yet���why, he took out a  reg'lar handful of 'em, and just picked  that out as if 'twas a penny 1"  '"I suppose tho man thought he was  only rewarding you in accordance with  your deserts," I said.  "Lor'I" be'answered. "I told him nett  to nothing, sir. Just the artist's name,  and as you were in the gallery I pointed  you out���noooffence, I hope, sir?���it's  the usual thing. But thiity-Uvo shillings  ���you ain't mistaken, sir? "And 'mi  dicsscd like a paupeil"  I observed, with tlie air of one utter-  oi nope Hashed upon me*, it might "be  that Helen had gone there. It was an  improbable thing, but drowning men  catch at straws, and I was by that timo  most seriously concerned at my wife's  aJbsence. I told the gnl to keep dinner  waiting, and snatching up my hat ran  out to our fiiend's house. One word  there sent me away again; Helen had  not been there. But as I tuined away'a  voice called me back: one of the daugh-^  ters of the house had seen her at half--  past three1 in Piccadilly.   She was jusfc  foing into Hatchard's book-shop/ and  ad stayed a moment at the door to  ���peak to her friend and to confirm out  engagement for the "evening.     > <���   ..  There are, I .think, few sensation*  more horrible than that of a man who  loses wife or child in a great city and  feels himself hopelessly at sea at tho  very outset of his search. I realized  this sensation to tho full as'I walked  one   cannot   -always  'judge   by   appearances; and having advised the policeman  to take his imperial rouble to a moneychanger, passed on and  went home.    I  believe I.had dismissed the whole incident from my mind before I reached the  end of Piccadilly���certainly I had foigot-  ten it hy the time I i cached home, for I  made no mention of it to Helen.   I often  wondered in tho days that came nftei  and'brought so much anxiety  in  theii  train, if anything of ouv sorrow would  have been avoided if I had told her. But  the   thing  seemed   slight-and -inconsequential���an odd-looking foreigner staring at my picture and giving its custodian a gold rouble���there was nothing in  that to suggest the fust.step in,an ugly  dream���and so I let the iuoident pass  unheeded.  er though still curiously hesitating fashion, I went over and opened the door and  looked out. ,    ,   . '  ��� The landing was-dim'with shadows and  at first I saw no one. But presently I  caught sight of, the figure of a man  standing within the gloom. ' He breathed'  my name in a low voice.  "Mr. _ Vincent���the painter ��"'he whispered, questioningly.              "Yes,''-*. I-t replied.      "Who   arc   yout  away from my friend's house.   I was by    Come in; I can't see you there."

My love as deep; the more I ffive to theo  ^Phe more I have!  1 There were people who ahjeoted to my  ������* picture when it ..was finished because  Borneo's face was not seen. He stood  With his back to the foreground, showing no, more than the contour of an  , '.olive-tinted cheek. But there was design  tn that, for I wanted Juliet's face to  tiominate and light the wholo picture,  ���von as its original had lighted my own  life. So, though it -was entitled "Romeo  land Juliet," it was really Juliet and no  eore. I had never a doubt of its ,suc-,  ss. It seemed to me, 'as Iworkcd'at it  ���iwith Helen's face tending' towards me  from the improvised balcony -which I had  built up in my studio, that the pebple  Would crowd about it and wonder, and at  ^ast understand and go away pleased  lA.nd so it was no surprise to mo, when  (the hanging committee of 'the Royal Aea;  Slemy gave tha picture a place on the  jtone, and the first visitors began to crowd  Jround it with eyes and voices expressive  jof admiration. -  -  Had that picture never been painted,  fk  Is  possible  that   Helen  and   I  had  ascfi/pea a long year of sickening anguish.  I was strolling through the rooms of  tho Royal Academy one afternoon, some  "weeks after the exhibition opened, and  ISeent round to my own picture with a  paguo curiosity to see  whether   people  Rtill clustcied about it.   It had been so  popular that the a/uthorities had placed  l policeman before it, and on this particular afternoon he stood there looking  Intensely bored, for there was absolutely  nothing to oocupy him.

I struck a  match and lighted the gas, and at that  moment the door opened to admit the  parlor-maid, carrying my reading-lamp.

After a time I discarded  them and turned enquiry agent on nr  own nccount.

I secured the portrait of him which*  the police picked up and began to loo)  for him diligently.

The best general remedy for the  core worm or codlin moth, accoidins  to information furnished by the Vermont experiment station, ia Paris  gieen. Some apple growers use London purple, others use white arsenic,  hut they amount to the same thing.  ,They all poison the core worms. Other insecticides like hellebore, kerosene  or sulphur are not effective in thii  case. ' '  In the hands of tho average man Far-  Is green is the best medicine for tho  codlin moth. The poison should bo  thoroughly mixed with water at the  rate of a Quarter of a pound to the  barrel,-���that is about one pound ol  Paris green to 160 to 200 gallons ol  water. About a pound of lime ought  to he added to each barrel of water,  which will prevent' scalding of tho  foliage. It should be applied With a  spray pump and line nozzle.

Whatever" is done   with horses    to  the    best   advantage   must   be   done  coolly,   deliberately,    confidingly,' and  with   kindness    for   the best   results.  Whenever the horse becomes confused  and excited he    seemingly "loses    his  head," which is very liable to" lead to  dangerous results, but just as long as  he and his   driver   are on   peaceable  terms and understand   cadi othci per-  fecth     there   is   comparatively   little  Sanger, even with the highest order of  nervous development.   As long as the  horse understands that he is not to be  hurt and that dn actions will come in  an intelligent manner, he can be relied  on, but just as soon as he loses confidence in hiS'duvcr he seems to take  the responsibility of the situation upon  himself, and then destruction  too generally  follows.    The theory   practised  by the majority of the would-be horsemen is to force the animal to do their  bidding, whether the horse understands  what it is or not.   But neither men nor  horses  can ..execute   any   order   well  without understanding just how to perform the duty, and this is acquired by  cool, deliberate}  careful and kind explanation without fear or punishment.  Well-behaved horses arc the result of  kind,  careful handling,  but  dangerous  horses   arc   made   so   by   fright   and  fight    by    those    who    have    undertaken   their   training      Many   of ..our  Very   best   and    safest   horses,   under  similar treatment,  can  be made1 dangerous animals in an incredibly short  tjme in the hands of an abusive, inhuman,   cruel   horscbi caking   crank.���*  Horse World.  moting a beefy tendency-in the heifer.  With dairy cattle the mam purpose is  to promote as much as possible a predisposition to milk-giving. For this  purpose we breed for milk, feed for  milk, and in the care and handling we  give the animal wc endeavor to promote the milk-giving functicfi all we  can, consistent with health, and constitution. It has been noAced by close:  , observers that if heifers, or cows even���  become too ileshy,-they are apt to fail  in breeding, or if they do conceive and  have a calf, there occurs, somehow,,  a "set back" to their full and free milking function. "Fat and fertility are at  the antipodes ol each other,'/says the  author of "The Transmission of Life "  When heifers are kept till they are-  two years of age before getting bred,,  they arc quite apt to contract a fleshy  habit or tendency But, if the process  of gestation is going on uith them at.  the same time, it counteracts the flesh- L  making tendency, and establishes the  milking temperament 'Aithin them It  is true that the had resulrs of late  breeding in checking the milking ten-  'dency are not ncarlj as apparent in thoroughbred dairy cattle as .they arle mi  dual-purpose or beef cittle The reason for this is-that the ''dairy tempera- -  nient" is more thoroughly established  'in them, by long htieclity in that direction, and so holds them more-  steadily to the central ^ purpose for  which they are bred But there is at  constant tendency to "reversion" in the  very--best of' families     i '  So if we keep alive and strong the  dairy temperament, we should start the  heifer in that road   as soon as she is  IS months of age    What we are after  in this matter, of bi ceding dairy cattle  is to constantly establish and enlarge*.,  the dairy individuality of our animals.  We like to feel that all our "'method* -"  of breeding, feeding and handling arez  doing their best to make of each heifer,  if possible, a little better cow than ,her'  mother.   That is the load of dairy progress.   Branching off from it and lead- r  r  ing away from the great central pur*    ������  pose are  other  paths,  suth  as  "dual     ���'  purpose," thej"color craze,' and an uneconomic demand for "size," etc- f_     <  A writer in���Ttte Jersey Bulletin ot"   ,  July 29, speaking en this question, says: '   ,  "We like them (the, heifers),, to drop ^^  their calves at two years of age.JWould" ���  prefer   them   to    freshen    at   twenty   -v  months than to go o^ei two years.

To,be    '  sure, they will not get their full growthv^  until they are four, or five years old,  and possibly  may  never  be quite  so  large as if they droppedi first calf at   -, v  three years, but most of us know that  sire does not stand for everything in a  Jersey cow."  , Sufficient    size,    say, 900    to  1,000 ;-* '  pounds",'"can be attained more surely bj    .  seeing to  it  that the"  heifer  is kept  growing and thrifty from the time she r -'  is born. * -        >  J)  ��*q  'hi  -'.II  Doctors Prescribe  KOU TONIG WINE  Manufactured from Kola, Celery andt  Pepsm, for weak and nervous people,,^  it is very invigorating, by its use lt:.  enables the system to ward oH fevers,..'  bilious headaches and is the greatest  appetite restorer known, it is also a*.  positive cure for indigestion and djs-  pepsia   Sold all   over the Dominion-  Beware of imitations   Remember    it -  is only manufactured by The Hygiene  Kola Co , 84 Church St , Sole Proprietors.
