So llilda asked God about him. The very next day she took the little blind boy a big orange. It was now Ruth's turn. "Once I asked a little girl If that was her sister," said Ruth. "The little girl said : 't ain't a sister. It's a baby.'" One of the other boys now had a story to tell. "Once I saw a cyclone come around the corner of a street," he said.

Whether of cloth or fur (and usually of cloth with fur), they are sumptuous all-enveloping wraps, that look equal to making their wearers unconscious of the cold. The materials used for them are velvety, soft and thick and to add to their suggestion of warmth they call upon natural furs to furnish them with huge collars and deep cuffs. The styles, especially in fur coats, are considerably varied, so that there is a choice of silhouettes. There are models in cloth or fur with flaring skirts and long waistlines, others with bloused backs, and long garments that If i : j j jilililliiililii, T N EVENING gowns the designer has j a choice of silhouettes, and often his fancy lightly turns from long, slender lines to those that are bouffant. Fashion insists upon the slim silhouette for daytime dresses, but says "what you will' for evening; the inclination Is usually toward slen-derness. Whichever silhouette is chosen, the maker of evening frocks may give them any flavor he will. They may be brilliant and stately, or frivolous if they have "a grace in being gay" or they may be satisfied with unpretentious prettiness. The most successful evening frocks, with full skirts, employ taffetas in "WHAT YOU WILL" Ilvvy colors, but satin, georgette, ma-linos and net keep it company, and these lovely fabrics are supplemented with many furbelows in which ribbons, artificial or made flowers and varied ornaments are included. Velvet vindicates its use for slim and gracefully draped gowns made to grace the niost formal affairs with narrow trailing ends of drapery replacing a regulation train, on some of them. Black is almost the universal choice in color, and skirts are always long. The same character of gown is made . m 1 iimhiii rr MAKING MILK IN NEBRASKA. Mgures ODtained Probably Approximate Requirements in Other Sections of West. (Prepared by the United States Department of Agriculture.) Here is what it costs, in labor and feed, to produce 100 pounds of market milk in eastern Nebraska: Winter, six months concentrates, 41.2 pounds; dry roughage, 05.3 pounds; silage and other succulent roughage, I)3.f". pounds; bedding, 11.1 pounds; human labor, 2 hours; horse labor, 0.0G hour; hauling and grinding concentrates, $0.Oi6; pasture, $0,108; total costs, except depreciation on cows, $0,788; depreciation on cows, $0,018. Summer six months Concentrates, 11 pounds; hauling and grinding concentrates, i?0.(X)4; dry roughage, f1.2 pounds; silage and other succulent roughage, 29.3 pounds ; pasture, $0.053 ; human labor, 1.9 hours; horse labor, 0.08 hours; total costs except depreciation on cows, S0.S05; depreciation on cows, $0,084. The work of determining the cost of producing milk in this section covers two one-year periods. It was begun by the bureau of animal industry, United States Department of Agriculture, in co-operation with the department of dairy husbandry of tho University of Nebraska, in September, 1917, discontinued at the end of the first year, and resumed in September, 1919. The figures reported were based on actual records obtained by regular monthlv visit of 24 hours each to eight farms for two years, and to 22 i other fiinns for one year. The requirements for keeping the : average cow one year were: Concen-, trates. 1.529 pounds, hauling and grind-j ing concentrates, ,SO.O; dry rouglmge. i 4.275 pounds; sibige and other succu-; lent roughage, 3.593 pounds; pasture. ' 22.01: bedding, 310 pound: human labor, 113.0 hours; horse labor. 3.2 hours; other costs except depreciation on cows, $40.35; depreciation on cows-, $4.78. During the first winter and summer the average incomes from milk were not sufficient to meet the average costs. In the second year the incomes were above the average costs in both seasons. The greater percentage of the year's Income was received in the winter, but the feed, pasture and bedding costs exceeded the summer costs Feed for Dairy Cows Should Se Carefully Weighed. by a greater percentage than the winter receipts exceeded the summer receipts. Although the figures obtained show what was required to produce milk for the Omaha market under the system of dairy management found ir. the section studied, and probably approximate the requirements in similar localities, it is pointed out by the department that they, of course, do not apply to dairying in sections where different conditions and methods of management prevail. Additional details of the record and work are contained in department Pul-, letin 972, "Unit Requirements for Producing Market Milk in Eastern Nebraska," recently issued by the United States Department of Agriculture. Copies of the bulletin may be had by addressing a request to the depart - ment at Washington, D. C. MOLD REPORTED IN SILAGE Trouble Occurs Only Where Air Is Present, Generally Caused by Lack of Water. The usual number of complaints are coming in regarding the presence of mold In silage. Mold can grow "only ti-tion sin to rvr-aoont A ! P r'Ariepji 1 1 V i in II nil ic j ' 'V in. .... w gets in as the result of the silage being too dry when put into the silo. If water was added, not enough was used. Poor packing may cause the same trouble. Mold around the doors and against the wall is. the result of poor construction of the silo which allows air to enter. Nothing can be done now to remedy the condition. At the next filling time special care should be taken to see that the corn contains enough moisture and that It is well tramped. It is always safest to reject sheep, although for cattle there seems to be little danger. C. II.

GOLDEN TEXT Whosoever would be chief among you, let him be your servant. Matt. 20:27. REFERENCE MATERIAL Deut. 15:12-15: John 13:14. S5; I Cor. 1:20-2? ; Col. 3:9-11: Jas. 2:1-9. PRIMARY TOPIC The Story of a Runaway Slave. JUNIOR TOPIC Paul's Kindness to & Runaway Slave. INTERMEDIATE AND SENIOR TOPIC Paul Pleading for a Slave. YOUNG PEOPLE AND ADULT TOPIC The Social Teachings of the Letter to Philemon. This is a private letter. Philemon was a member of the church at Colos-se. Onesimus, his slave, wronged him, perhaps stole from him. and lied to Rome. There ho came under Paul's influence and was converted. Paul sent Onesimus back to Philemon with this letter. This is one of the most tender and beautiful letters ever written, arid the first anti-slavery petition ever penned. I. The Salutation tw. 1-3). His aim was to touch Philemon's heart, so refers to himself as a prisoner, and links Philemon to himself as a fellow-laborer in the Gospel of truth. He makes mention of Applna. Philemon's wife, and Archippus. the son. who had already enlisted as a fellow-soldier. II. Philemon's Reputation (vv. 4-7). Paul paid a fine tribute to Philemon, reminding him that lie never prayed withoijt bearing him up before Cod. This is a line example f tact on the part of the minister. 1. His faith am love toward the Lord and all saints (v. r). It was his hope and desire that this faith might bear fruit in Christ Jesus. 2. His ministry to the saints (v. 7). Philemon was generous in his help to the poor saints. III. Paul's Request (vv. S-1G). He requested Philemon to receive back Onesimus, the runaway slave, as a brother in Christ. 1. He beseeches instead of commands (vv. 8-1U). Though conscious of his right to enjoin, he pleads as the prisoner of Jesus Christ for love's sake. 2. He makes his plea on the grounds of grace (vv. 11-14). He admitted that Onesimus had been unprofitable had forfeited all claim upon Philemon, and that on grounds of justice his plea might well be rejected, and yet Onesimus was begotten in his bonds (v. 10) was in a real sense a part of his own suffering nature (v. 12) lie ventured to suggest that he should be accepted. Though Onesimus hitherto had been unprofitable to his master, now was profitable to both Paul and Philemon. Paul would gladly have retained him as a personal attendant, but sought first his friend's permission. 3. Paul desired that Onesimus be received back not as a slave, but as a brother in Christ (vv. 1, 10). Here is the real fugitive slave law. Paul never attacked slavery, though it was contrary to Christianity, and therefore hateful to him, but t mphasized principles which destroyed it. The establishment of Christianity changes the whole face of human society. The wise thing to do is to get men and women regenerated and thus transform society instead of seeking change by revolution. In Paul's request you can hear the pleadings f Christ for us sinners. All iren have broken loose gone astray and have become unprofitable. We are reconciled to God through the interceding of Christ. He has made us profitable. We have been begotten in His bonds through His passion, agony of heart, we shall be changed. III. The Basis Upon Which Onesimus Is to Be Received (vv. 17-21). The debt of guilty Onesimus is to be put to the account of Paul, and the merit of Paul is to be put to the account of Onesimus. This is a fine illustration of the atonement of Christ. Whatever wrongs we have committed debt incurred all our shortcomings are debited to Him. Jesus Christ, on behalf of the whole universe, has said to God: "Put that to my account; I have written with my pierced hand; I will repay." Onesimus was taken back, not as a runaway slave, but a beloved brother in Christ. IV. Paul Requests Lodging (vv. 22-23). - He expected a speedy release from imprisonment, and purposed to sojourn with Philemon. In all probability this was realized. What a welcome he must have received I Jesus Christ is 6aying to every one of His redeemed ones, "Prepare me a lodging." 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, and that turn aside the stranger from his right, and fear not me, saith the Lord of hosts. For I am the Iord, I change not. Malachi 3 : 5, 6. Prophecy as to Backslider. Now the spirit speaketh expressly that in the latter times some shall d-purt from the faith.!

So, they set up a Christmas tree in a corner of the big dining room. Santa Claus came bustling in and began to make things pleasant. Tied to his belt there was an alarm clock. Its bell was ringing like everything. This was to wake the Old Folks up. First, he called the roll, to see if they were all tip and awake. Then, he began to pick the presents off the tree. Soon the room was gay with dolls, horns and jumping jacks. A doll was riding in her carriage, J squeaking and rising up every few feet ; as she rode along. There was a talking doll. too. She j sang and talked when they pushed the j buttons cn her dress. There were hot dolls for cold nights and cups and balls for the Old Folks to play with when they could not , sleep. . j The Old Folks all played with their j presents. They blew on their horns. : and amused themselves with the jump- . ing-jaeks. and sent the moving toys j running about the room all at once, j But. after all, the Old Folks thought j it wasn't so very much fun because j there were no real children there. So they sent out to see if they could find some. They found Lucy, Peter, Billy. Mary. Sally, H'.lda. Ruth, and some other children, who all came to see the Old Folks' Christmas tree. Lucy told the Old Folks the story about her dog Trump. Trump was a tramp dog, but he could do some tricks. He loved to be dressed up in a blanket, with a belt. Then, with a beribboned straw hat on his head, he would walk across the room upon his hind legs. After Lucy came Peter. Peter said that he did not know any stories, but once h? carried the flag for the big boys baseball team, and they let him go in to see the baseball game, free. Then Billy told a story. He said that once he sat up all eight, waiting for Santa Claus to come and fill his stocking. That is, he tried to sit up all night; but Santa Claus didn't come and so he fell asleep in the dark. The next day the doctor came to see him. The doctor told him he had had "stockingitis." Billy said, too. that when he woke up in the early morning and found that Santa Claus had forgotten to fill Ms stocking, he was going to th-row himself on the floor and pound his heels on It and holler. But then he happened to remember how ugly his First, He Called the Roll. brother Harry looked when he did that. So Billy thought he wouldn't; and he didn't. Mary told about the songs she sang to her doll. She said that the song that her doll liked the best was: The little dog went to the market town. With one root xip. and one root down; But when ie came to a muddy place He jumped cle-e-e-an over! Mary said that she always jumped her doll at the "jump" part. Sally thought that it was a long time since she had known a . story. "most as long as the night before Christmas,' but she did remember a ride she once had on a little donkey. She said they had to send the old donkey on ahead to make -the llttfe donkey hurry. Then she remembered about the cats at her. grandma's house. There was a big cat for the big mice, and a little cat for :the little mice. Hilda told a story about a little blind boy she once saw. When she said her evening prayer totrfi lilt dolls in it. The man wanted to sell j the dolls, but the cyclone took the tent right up into the sky, with all the dolls in it. "Another man asked him : 'What are you making such a fuss about? Weren't your dolls for sail?' and everybody laughed except the doll man." The Old Folks were having such a good time listening to the stories that they thought the children ought to have a good time, too. So they took all their presents that had come off the tree and gave them to the little folks who had come in. Every boy and every girl had a toy and a box of candy Lucy, Peter, Billy. Mary, Sally, Hilda, and the others. Then, all the young Old Folks and all the children marched around the dining room singing. They sang "Merry. Merry Christmas," and so the fun ended. But I guess it didn't quite end then, either. For, as the young Young "V- a- Every Boy and Every Girl Had a Toy. Folks went out of the doof and down the street, the young Old Folks could hear them laughing, long after they turned the corner. Besides, the young Old Folks have been talking about their "Old Folks' Christmas" ever since. FESTIVITIES OF OLD TIMES Lord of Misrule Was Important Func tionary at Yuletide Celebrations of the Long Ago. HE Lord of Misrule was an impor tant functionary at the Christmas festivities of those long-ago times. An account of this important personage has been preserved by the historian and antiquary, John Stow, who lived during the reign of Queen Elizabeth and during the first year of the reign of Kins Charles I. and was. therefore, a contemporary of Shake speare. "In the feast of Christmas," writes Stow, "there was in the king's house, wherever he lodged, a Lord of Misrule or Master of Merry Deports, and the like had ye in the house of every nobleman of honor or good worship, were he spiritual or temporal. The mayor of Ixmdon, and either of the sheriffs, had their several Lords of Misrule. At Cambridge university the Lord of Misrule was a master of art. elected to superintend the representation of Latin plays by the students, besides taking charge of their games and diversions during the Christmas season. A similar Master of Revels was chosen at Oxford. In the Inns of Courts in London, where the barristers had their olfices and belongings, a Lord of Misrule reigned with great splendor, "being surrounded with all the parade and ceremony of royalty, his guard of honor, and even his two chaplins who preached before him in the Temple church." On the Twelfth day he abdicated his sovereignty, and we are informed that In the year 1635, this mock-representative of royalty expended in the exercise of his office about two thousand pounds from his own purse, and at the conclusion of his reign was knighted by King Charles I at Whitehall. Saving the Leftovers. Instead of always frying up any leftover potatoes, why not use them for hot tea scones? They only take a few minutes to make. To half a pound of cold potatoes add wo ounces of flour and a teaspoonful each of salt and baking powder. Knead them all together, then add just enough milk sour milk If you like to make a stiff dough. Roll out and cut into either squares or rounds with a pastry cutter or tumbler and bake on a tin tn a quick oven. To Sweeten Musty Teapot.
