The I time to stop It Is before It bsgins. I Until no* 1 , however, we have I been, so lo speak, providing hos- I pltals to take care of the victims Instead of establishing quarantines to keep out the dLsease. We have been building engineering works to take eare of the floods nfter they occur and have done practically I nothing to prevent the Hoods from I occurring or to reduce their height I nnd destructlveness when they do I take placn. j Uveej and other engineering I works on the lower rivers arc ab- MOlutely necessary, Just as hospitals 1-in-e necessary. But a million flood I sufferers know today that such en 1 glneerlng works are not enough.' We are like a man trying to work I with only one arm. The arm we I lia'vc not used Is flood quarantine I at the headwaters. It will take both I arms to do this job, and hard work at that. American Floods Increasingly Worse. The history of floods In America I Is proof positive that they arc gel- I ting w'prse and worse.

Editor of Advance Coining In Die month of February, tills Ic.sson on Jesus, the good shepherd, has an apprpiii'iule- ness thai was not In Die minds ef the compilers of the li'.sson.s ot the lime they were planned. •nils is Die fact that the cen- tiMiary of the birlli of the (jront evangelist. Dwlght I.. Moody, is being celebrated throughoiil Ihe worid. Moody was born on Fi'b. 5. 1831. Associated with him In his evangelistic work was Sankey, the singer; find the sonx or liyina that was mosl typical of Moody'.s evaiiEelLsin was the beautiful "The Nlnety-nnd-Nine." l:as- ed on the Parable of the 1ml Sheep. In our lesson the aspect of the shepherd is somewhat different, but It ts (he same .essential- fact that-Is emphasized; namely, the shepherd's care for his sheep, and his willingness lo lay <lov;n cvea libs life. If necessary, lo defend and care for them. lo Himself as tho "door" are not i-aslly understood, but the cmpha- sis that ' Jesus puts . uixin the character of the shepherd, his FACE THREH iamb o» his imn. while, his stnll • •- — . or crook symbolli'.c.s his proti'd- Tlie references (lint Jesns makes Ing care for the older sheep has —--•-" -•• "•- •••' - been elishrliml In art.

He .syinbollzes Hie protection ot the 'Sheep, and the exclusion from Ihe fold of all that Is dangerous and harmful. The character of Die good shepherd Is contrasted with that of the hireling, (he man who has no sense of responsibility or of .devotion.

Instead we must plow In level lines around the slope, as they have learned to do In the South. We need to return many acres In soil-conserving and soil-protect- ing'crops. We need to prevent over- granlng. We need terraces in places, and planning for soil protection on bare .slopes. We need many little dams to hold back the ,waters of little streams. We must control and repair erosion that Is already under way. And we need, of course, not only these and other related measures at the headwaters, but'also the .continuance and improvement of levees r and other engineering works lower down. We ought to do the one and stop leaving the other undone. I repeat that we know what needs to be done. All that remains undetermined is the mechanics of how lo get it done. Just'how the cost and the responsibility shall be divided between tlie Slates ami the Nation is still to be decided. Are we going to'let that stop as? What then ate we .actually going to do about it? The present flood has put us on notice.

The. whole nation loses, .what made the wealth of .field and fqres'l ; soils higher up turns into .destruction lower down. There is no.good'in; it for any man, from the.'mountains to the sea. Everybody .loses when the floods are out. why this double-acting calamity should go on. We have long known what was needed to stop it. Thirty years ago the Inland Waterways Commission painted this .same picture, pointed out that every" river Is A unit frohi its source lo Us mouth and must be treated assHcli, and urged headwater as well a.s lower-stream control. But the engineers denied the effect of forest and sod on tlie runoff of streams, denied the need to quarantine the floods at the headwaters, anS went right on building hospitals—levees and spillways to confine the floods after' they came. You know the result. The fact is that' hospitals and „ -,-, .._., t ^a- quarantines both are required.

Some of the Important things to consider in realizing the maximum value of this damaged corn are: '. , ' l.'The fact that it Is water soaked does not materially effect its feeding' value if fed or dried reasonably soon. ' ; 2. Water soaked com can be shelled In certain types of shell- ers provided It does not remain In the water too long. 3. .When sound, except for. being water-soaked, it'will have a market-value for .fed approaching that of ordinaiy corn if properly and promptly dried. 4. Tills water' soaked com will lose feeding value faster in warm weather than cooler weather if it Is not dried. 5. This damaged corn can be utilized best for feeding to hog and cattle with less danger than work stock. ; BlACK-DRAUGHT A Good Laxative YOUNG WOMANHOOD Slid wbit Mr,.
