Within its patterned ; meshes of Immaculate daintiness, is indelibly stamped the message of feminine charm. Fine lace and rare embroideries proclaim the presence of the gentlewoman. There is no dress or suit so plain or unattractive but that it Is amenable to the transforming power of beauteous neckwear. No wonder so many of us throng the neckwear section of our favorite dry goods store on Saturday afternoon. It is the eleventh-hour rush to add the "touch that tells" to our costume for the morrow, for we all realize that exquisite neckwear will ever be recognized as the finesse of good dressing. Even sweaters have succumbed to the lure. That is, young girls are wearing within the V-shaped necks of their gay colored slip-on sweaters, collars and frills of fine net and lace. The picture herewith shows the infinite attractiveness of fine lace accented against a heavy wool-knit background. Perhaps no accessory performs a greater mission than the lace vestee or sleeveless guimpo with Its broad collar attached. It lends a helping hand to the Tuxedo sweater, while in Children ecret Revealed. Innumerable years yielded up a secret at the stateboiise today.

(frepared by the Cnited States Department of Agriculture. Olher pig club members may he en-ceuraped by the way in which Thur-hert Campbell, a thirteen-year-old boy iii Haskell county, Oklahoma, persisted in spite of various setbacks until in little more than a year he had not only started a purebred herd of his own, but eliminated all the scrubs from his father's farm and Induced the latter to plant forage crops that had never been tried before. To begin with, Tfcurbert's father was not very much interested, either in his job ins the pig club in the spring of 1020, or in the Eureka Boys Demonstration club, of which he was a member. The father was unable, and partly unwilling to back the boy financially when he proposed buying a bred gilt. He had plenty of ordinary hops which he considered good enough for himself, and thought they would do quite as well for the boy to start with. A purebred ci!t would cost S-V. The county agent became interested and took the matter up with the father, who agreed to let the boy borrow the money if he could do so without obligation on the father's part. When the time enme ten pips were farrowed, but only one was alive. It was a crushinp blow. Thurbert came to the county apt nt for advice. His 50 note was extended by the bank. He was determined not to quit. The gilt was bred again, and Thurbert went ripht ahead carinp for his pip. The second litter hroupht eight pips, all alive, and things looked considerably brighter for the boy. The one pig from the first litter sold about this time for ?45, and two of the new ones for $15 each, so that after paying his note with interest Thurbert had $22 left. From the same breeder who furnished the gilt Thurbert now bought a boar pig. The price. $50, was to be paid when the boy 1 rd sold some more stock. Two more pigs which were sold at $25 each cleared the note off and left Thurbert free from all indebtedness with a balance in the bank. An arrangement has been made with an older brother who is to grow the feed while Thurbert furnishes the herd. The "herd" consists now of 53l -V M A Pig Club Boy and His Pigs. foundation stock, soon due to farrow-again ; three younger gilts, which will be bred this- fall ; the herd boar, and one young boar which is for sale. All the father's scrub brood sows have been disposed of, with no other scrubs left but a shote. which will go to the pork barrel. Oats, rape, sudan grass and sweet clover have been tried out with good results for summer pastures. Bermuda and red clover have been planted on a small scale. The entire family Is won over to the purebred stock idea end many changes for the better have been begun on this farm. FEEDING THE PREGNANT EWE Fair Amount of Silage, With Cottonseed Cake and Hay, Is a Recommendation Made. Pregnant ewes should receive from three to four pounds of silage per head deily during the winter. This should be supplemented with two or three ounces per head dally of cottonseed cake and some hay. After the lambs are born silage Increases the milk flow of the ewes. In the fattening of lambs and yearlings for market the cheapest gains have usually been made when silage constituted a part of the ration. FEED SILAGE TO THE SHEEP Must Not Be Made Entire Ration, but Should Be Usea With Proper, tlon of Hay. Whether or not it pays to feed silage to sheep, hogs and horses Is a more or less debatable question. It will be safe to feed It to sheep of all classes except that feeding a flock of breeding ewes on silage alone of a ration composed almost entirely of silage Is likely to cause a crop of weak lambs In the spring. It will always be safer, therefore, to use some hay and toward spring a little grain also for ewes that Aire due to tamb. M l-J i. ... MOTHbK liKAI i SWEET POWDERS.

LESSON FOR NOVEMBER 13 PAUL BEFORE THE ROMAN GOVERNOR. LKSSOX TEXT Acts 24:1-27. OOT.DEN TKXT Herein do I exercise myself, to have always a conscience void of offense toward God and man. Acta 24:16. REFERENCE MATERIAL Luke 12:4-12. PRIMARY TOPIC Why Paul Was Not Afraid. JUNIOR TOPIC The Secret of Paul's Courage. INTERMEDIATE AND SENIOR TOPIC Defense Before a Roman Governor. YOUNO PEOPLE AND ADULT TOPIC Paul's Defense Before Felix. I. Paul Accused (vv. 1-0) Tertullus, perhaps a Roman barrister, formally made the accusation according to Itonian law. lie began with flattery. lie pave Felix the fullest praise when he and all the people knew that he lied ; for Felix was one of the worst governors destitute of morals and justice. lie brought a fourfold charge against Paul: 1. "A pestilent fellow" (v. o). This would Indicate a fellow utterly base and corrupt a plague. 2. An inciter of rebellion, a mover of sedition (v. o). This they hoped would bring him Into conflict with the Roman power. 3. That he was the ringleader of n Feet a schtsmatical party a heretic (v. ro. 4. That he bad profaned the temple (v. 6). II. Paul's Defense (vv. 10-21). In this defense note: 1. Paul's frankness and courtesy (r. 10). Flattery is entirely wanting. He gives recognition of the fact that Felix hrtd been ruler of this people long enough to be able to judge justly, as the habits and ways of the Jews were familiar to him; and then, in a dignified manner, assumes that Felix will rentier a just decision based upon the facts of the case. 2. The charge of sedition denied (vr. 11, 12). He flatly and scornfully denied this charge, showing its utter falsity, since the time was too short, being but twelve days since he went to Jerusalem, and half of that time had been spent as a prisoner of the Romans. His conduct while there disproved it he disputed with no man In the temple; jieither did he make any attempt to Incite the people in the city nor In the synagogue. 3. The charge of heresy (vv. 14-1G). This charge he met by a concession and a denial. He admitted that he was of the "Way" which they called heresy, but clearly showed that it was in keeping with the Hebrew religion: (1) he worshiped the same God (v. 14) ; (2) he fully believed In the same Scriptures (v. 14) ; (3) he had the same hope of a coming resurrection of the dead (v. l."). He declared that he made as the principle of life a conscience void of offense before God and man. 4. The charge of sacrilege, or profanation of the temple (vv, 17-21). This charge he refuted by showing (1) that he had come all the way from Greece (v. 17) to worship at the feast ; (2) that he had not come up empty-handed, but had brought. alms for his nation (v. 17) ; (3) that there were not competent witnesses present to testify as to his behavior in the temple (v. 10) ; by challenging his enemies to testifv as to his conduct In the council (v. 20). III. Paul Before Felix the Second Time (vv. 22-27). This is a sort of a sequel to the trial. Wicked as Felix was, Paul's manner somewhat won his favor, though he did not release him. His sentence was indulgent imprisonment, which kept him free from his enemies while under Roman protection. Felix sent for Paul that he might hear of Christ from him. Paul behaved himself aright before these sinners in high life. He reasoned of righteousness, pelf-control and judgment to come, be-" fore Felix nnd his sinful wife, with such power that Felix was terrified and declared that he would hear Paul further nt n convenient time. This was a most flimsy excuse for not changing his life and granting justice to Paul. He was so in bondage to sin that he was unwilling to change. Also he hoped that by delaying matters he would receive a bribe. The Lord Changeth Not. And I will come near to you to Judgment ; I will be a swift witness against false swearers, and against those that oppress the hireling in his wages, the widow and the fatherless, nnd that turn nside the stranger from his right, and feur not me, saith the Lord of Hosts. For I am the Lord; I change not. Malachl 3:5, 6. Worship. A malt, purpose of worship on earth on the pan of Christians, who believe that they have to prepare for the sight of God in judgment. Is that It is a preparation. Worship is an education for the inevitable future. H. P. Uddon. Who Shall Enter. Not every one that saith unto me. Lord, Lord, shall enter Into the kingdom of heaven ; btlt he that doeth the will of my Father which is In heaven. Matthew 8;2L CHRISTMAS comes but once a year," but oh me, oh my. Is it not astonishing how often that once-a-year. season for getting gifts ready comes around? Here it is time to figure out just what we will give to our nearest nnd dearest, plus friends gnlore. If these presents are to be made by hand and not boupht at the last minute, it Is high time that actual work is comnienccjl. Perhaps this group of pretty things that can be made at home, will prove of inspiration. Just imagine this beautiful floral-basket piece with its wonderfully artistic candlesticks gracing the center of one's dearest friend's dining table. Could any gift be lovelier? Or perhaps the sandwich tray appeals as being more practical. At any rate crepe paper "rope work" as it is called is most fascinating. Best of all, while the expense is minimum, the result is maximum. Of course, If one has never tried the work. It is best to begin on some simple article. As one becomes more proficient, elaborate designs may be achieved as per illustrations. For a basket of 4-inch diameter, 6 Inches high and a handle 8 inches high, materials are necessary as follows: Two hanks of H-lneh crepe paper rope, 12 wires for foundation, two extra lo'ng wires for the handle, one spool covered wire for holding wires together when starting, one fold crepe paper to match rope for winding wires, one tube glue, one tube paste. It Is also necessary to have a wire cutter and pair of pointed pliers. Shellac is essential for the finishing touch. The first step Is to wrap each of the 12 wires with a strip of crepe paper. Cut It inches wide off the end of the roll of crepe paper through the Feminine Charm entire thickness. Fold one end of 8trb over end of wire and then twirl It wound the entire length of wire without a gap. Paste securely at the last ' end. Kxt separate the 12 wires into two groups of six wires each. Lay bne group over the other at right angles, center to center. Fasten with spool wire. Then radiate the wires two by two like spokes to a wheel.. Caution mult be taken to keep all wires flat on the table else they will jumble at the center. It is now time for the paper rope. Fasten one end at the center with glue. Then weave in and out starting with a single wire and then continuing two by two and when It comes to the single wire' at completion of first circ.e, clip It out, as it Is necessary for even weaving to have an odd number of wires. Upon completion of a base four Inches In diameter, with plle.-s bend each wire up vertical to form the side of baskeL From now on weave In and out of single wires evenly spaced. When the side Is woven six Inche tall, fasten In three in Daincy Neckwear. connection with the tailored suit coat It completes the ensemble. Every well appointed wardrobe should include various versions of lace with net guimpes or vestees. In selecting, it Is well to know that venise lace is again in favor. It Is used In combination with Valenciennes or filet lace and net. For Its effectiveness, refer to the vestee illustrated herewith. Irish crochet lace Is at a high pitch of popularity, so is filet. Soft ecru tinting Is preferred, and plenteous fine tucked net Is used In connection ' with all lace and sheer embroidery. Deft fingers are fashioning the loveliest sort of collar and cuffs out of scraps of lace, transparent organdie embroidery, medallions md point d'esprit net. Gifted with artistry of designing, one can produce exquisite results. Are you stepping on the brake or.. the accelerator? The food you eat does make a difference.
