Sang-, 6; 8, a* FolInwt: "There Are Thrpe Score Qocen*" —Many Sympalhle* Stirred and Memories Recalled. (Copyright 1899 by Ix»uls Klopscb.) So Solomon, by one stroke, set forth .the Imperial character of a true Christian woman. She is not a slave, not a hireling, not a subordinate, but a queen. In a former sermon I showed you that crown and courtly attendants, and Imperial wardrobe were not necessary to make a queen; but that graces of the heart and life will give { coronation to any woman. I showed you at some length that woman's position was higher In the world than man's, and that although she had often been denied the right of suffrage, she always did vote and always would vote by her influence, and that her chief desire ought to be that she shouU have grace rightly to rule in the dominion which she has already won. I began an enumeration of some of her rights, and now I resume the subject. In the first place, woman has the special and the superlative right of blessing and comforting the sick. What land, what street, what house, has not felt the smitings of disease? Tens of thousands of sick-beds! What shall we do with them? Shall man, with his rough hand and clumsy foot, go stumbling around the sick-room, trying to soothe the distracted nerves and alleviate the pains of the distressed patient? The young man at college may scoff at the idea of being tinder maternal influences, but at the first blast of typhoid fever on his cheek he says, "Where is mother?" Walter Scott wrote partly In satire and partly in compliment: O woman, in our hours of ease. Uncertain, coy and hard to please; Wben pain and anguish wring the brow, A ministering angel tboti. I think the most pathetic passage in all the Bible Is the description of the lad who went out to the harvest field of Shunem and got sunstruck—press- ing his hands on his temples.and crying out: "Oh, my head! my head!" And they said: "Carry him to his mother." And then the record is: "He sat on her knees till noon, and then died." ^ Jt is an awful thing to bo ill away from home in a strange hotel, once in a while men coming in to look at you. holding their hand over their mouth for fear they will catch the contagion. How roughly they turn you in bed. How loudly they talk. How you long for the ministries of home. I know one such who went away from one of t> r * brightest of homes, for several weeks' business absence at the West. A telegram came at midnight that he sras on his death-bed far away from home. By express train the wife and daughters went westward; but they went too late. He feared not to die, but he was In an agony to live until his family got there. He tried to bribe the doctor to make him live a little while longer. He said: "I am willing to die, but not alone." But the pulses fluttered, the eyes closed and the heart stopped. The express trains met in the midnight; wife and daughters going westward—lifeless remains of husband and father coming eastward. Ob, it was a sad, pitiful, overwhelming spectacle! When -we are sick, we want to be sick at home. When the time comes for us to die, we want to die at home. In our Civil War, men cast the cannon, men fashioned the musketry, men •cried to the hosts, 'Forward, march!" men hurled their battalions on the Bharp edges of the enemy, crying, "Charge! charge!" but woman scraped the lint, woman administered the cordials, woman watched by the dying couch, woman wrote the last message to the home circle, woman wept at the solitary burial, attended by herself and four men with a spade. We greeted the generals home with brass bands and triumphal arches and wild huzzas; but the story is too good to be written anywhere, save in the chronicles of heaven, of Mrs. Brady, who came down among the sick In the swamps of the Chlckahominy; of Annie Ross, in the cooper-shop hospital; of Margaret Breckinridge, who came to men who had been for weeks with their wounds undressed—some of them frozen to the ground, and when she turned them over, those that had an arm left, waved it and fllled the air with their "hurrah. 1 "—of Mrs. Hodge, who came from Chicago, with blankets and with pillows, until the men shouted, "Three cheers'for the Christian Commission! God bless the women at home;" then sitting down to take the last message: "Tell my wife not to fret about me, hut to meet me in heaven; tejl her to train up the boys whom we have loved EO well; tell her we shall meet again in the good land; tell her to bear my loss like the Christian wife of a Christian, soldier"—and of Mrs. Shelton, makes you cry?" Tonight while we men are sound asleep in our beds there will be a light in yonder loft; there will be groaning rfowii the dark alley; there will be cries 6t distress In that cellar. Men will sleep, and women will watch. Again: woman nas a special right to take care of the poor. There are hnndreds and thousands of them ail over the land. There la a kind of work that men cannot do for the poor. Here comes a group of little barefoot children to the door of the Dorcas Society. They need to be clothed and provided for. Which of these directors of banks would know how many yards it would take to make that little girl a dress? Which of these masculine hands could fit a hat to that little girl's head? Which of the wise men would know bow to tie on that new pair of shoes? Man sometimes gives his charity in a rough way, and St_ falls like the fruit of a tree in the East, which fruit comes down so heavily that it breaks Ihe skull of the man who is trying to gather it. But woman glides so softly into the house of destitution, and finds otit all the sorrows of the place, and puts so quietly the donation on the table, that all the family come out on the front steps as she departs, expecting that from under her shawl she will thrust out two wings and go right up toward heaven, from whence she seems to have come down. O. Christian young woman! if you would make yourself happy, and win the blessing of Christ, go out among the destitute. A loaf of bread or a bundle- of socks may make a homely load to carry, but the angels of God will come out to watch, and the Lord Almighty will give his messenger hosts a charge, saying. "Look after that woman; canopy her with your wings, and shelter her from all harm;" and while you are seated In the house of destitution and suffering, the little ones around the room will whisper, "Who Is she?" "Ain't she beautiful.'" and If you will listen right sharply, you that three-fourths of the members of churches in ail Christendcfa are Women. So God appoints them to be the chief agents for bringing this WorM back to God. I may stand here and say the sonl is immortal. There is a man who will deny It. I may stand here and say we are lost and undone without Christ. There is a man who will contradict it. I may stand here and say there will be a judgment day j after a while. Yonder is some oa» who wilt dispute it. But a Christian woman in a Christian household, living in the faith and the consistency of Christ's gospel—nobody can refute that The greatest sermons are not preached on celebrated platforms: they are preached with an audience of two or three, and in private home life. A consistent, consecrated Christian service is an unanswerable demonstration of God's truth. DAIRY AND POULTRY. INTERESTING CHAPTERS FOR OUR RURAL READERS. ow Safer*rtol farmers -9p*rat« T&1* Department of the Farm— A Terr Hint* *s to the Care of Lire Stock «nd PooISrj-. Lastly, I wish to say that one of the specific rights of woman is. through ?he grace of Christ, finally to reach ?eaven. Oh, what a multitude of wom- ^n in heaven! Mary, Christ's mother, n heaven! Elizabeth Fry ia heaven' Tharlotte Elizabeth in heaven! mother of Augustine in heaven! The Countess of Hunlington—who eold her plendid jewels to build chapels—ia heaven! While a great many others, who have never been heard of on arth, or known but little, have gone into the real and peace of heaven. What a rest! What a change it was from the small room, with no fire and one window (the glass broken out), and the aching side, and worn-otic eyes, to the "house of many mansions"! No more stitching until twelve o'clock at night; no more thrusting of the thumb by the employer through the work, to ehow it was not done qnite right. Plenty of bread at last! Heaven for aching heads." Heaven for broken hearts! Heaven for anguish- bitten frames! No more sitting until Dairy 3tote!«. The good old practice of sunning the dairy paits should not be forgotten, even though in many cases we have laid aside the shallow pans. The sun is a microbe killer of the first magnitude. He not only kills the microbes, but so thoroughly dries out the pails and other utensils of tin that the process of rnsting Is stopped. Wooden paila and utensils are also improved by being submitted to the solar rays. This of course should be done In the open air, where the atmosphere is not poisoned or impregnated by foul odors, and where the wind can have a full sweep. * • » Silage should not be cut too short There are certain lengths at which it will hear dripping down through the leaky roof, and rolling over the rotten stairs, the angel chant that shook Bethlehem: "Glory to Cod In the highest, and on earth peace, good-will to men." Again, I have to tell you that it is a woman's specific right to comfort under the stress of dire disaster. She is called the weaker vessel; but ali profane as we!J as sacred history attests that when the crisis comes she I j better prepared than man to meet the emergency. How often have you see;] a woman who seemed to be a discipio of frivolity and indolence, who, under one stroke of calamity, changed io a heroine? Oh. what a great mistake those business men make who never tell their business troubles to their wives! There comes some great loss to their store, or their companions iu business play them a sad trick, and they carry the burden all alone. He is a^ked in the household again anJ again: "What is the matter?" But he believes it a sort of Christian duty to keep all that trouble within his own soul. Oh. sir! your first duty was to tell your wife all about it. She, per- haps.might not have disentangled your finances, or extended your credit, but she would have helped you to 'bear misfortune. You have no right to carry on one shoulder that which is intended for two. Business men know what I mean. There came a crisis in your affairs. You struggled midnight for the coming of staggering steps! Xo more rough blows across the temples! No more sharp, keen, bitter curses! Some of you will have no rest in this world. It will be toil and struggle and suffering all the way up. You will have to stand at your door, fighting back the wolf with your own hand, red with carnage. But God has a crown for you. I want you to realize this morning that he is now making it, and whenever you weep a tear he sets another gem in that crown; whenever you have a pang of body or soul he puts another gem in that crown, until, after a while in all the tiara there will be no room for another splendor, and God will say to his angel: "The crown Is done; let her up, that she •may wear it." And as the Lord of Righteousness puts the crown upon your .brow, angel will cry to angel, "Who is she?" and Christ will say, "I will tell you who she is. She is the one that came up out of great tribulation, and had he.- robe washed and made white in the blood of the Lamb." And then God will spread a banquet and he will invite all the principalities of heaven to sit at the feast, and the tables will blush with the best clusters from tbe vineyards of God and crimson with the twelve manner of fruits from the Tree of Life, and waters from the fountains of the rock bravely and long; there came a day but after a when you while said: "Here I shall have to stop." and you called in your partners, and you called in the most prominent men in your employ, and you said: "We have got to stop." You left the store suddenly. You could hardly make up your mind to pass through the street and over on the ferry-boat. You felt everybody would be looking at you, and blaming you, and denouncing you. You hastened home. You told your wife all about the affair. What did she say? Did she play the butterfly? Did she talk about the silks and the ribbons and the fashions? No. She came up to the emergency. She quailed not under the stroke. She offered to go out of the comfortable house into a smaller one, and wear the old cloak another winter. She was the one who understood your affairs without blaming you. You looked upon what you will flash from the golden tankards, «nd the old harpers of heaven will sit there, making music with their harps, and Christ will point you out, amid the celebrities of heaven, saying, "She suffered with mo on earth; now we are going to be glorified together." And the banqueters, no longer able to hold their peace, will break forth with congratulation, "Hall, hail!" And there will be handwritings on the wall,, —not such as struck the Babylonian noblemen with horror—but fire-tipped fingers, writing in blazing capitals of light nnd love, "God hath wiped away all tears from all faces!" is digested more easily than at other Zf 16 lengths. Some years ago at a convention held in Wisconsin an investigator made a report on the kind of feed that was found to be easiest digested by cows. He had examined a large number of cows' stomachs, ;md had also fed silage and cut corn fodder to cows and noticed at what lengths least of it showed in the droppings. He found that when the fodder was cut short, say half an Inch long, much of It appeared In the droppings, but that when the fodder was cut an inch and a quarter locg, it all seemed to be digested. * * * In keeping the herd of dairy cows tree from tuberculosis a few general rules at least should be observed. First, know that the herd is free from the disease. Then do not bring a new ?ow Into the herd unless she has been first tested by tuberculin. If milk Is taken to a creamery and skim-milk brought back, do not permit it to be used till it has been Pasteurized. This will not only make it safe to feed to Calves, but if.it is fed to pigs .will also prevent the disease being spread in that direction, which means Its getting a foothold on the farm. Do not under any circumstances permit strange cattle to run in the pastures or occupy the stables. Above all, do not permit a consumptive person to take care of the cows. * * • We hear a great deal about the S50- Pound cow, the 300-pound cow, the 100-pound cow, and so on. It is agreed lhat it takes 150 ppounds of butter to !ceep a cow a year, and that she must make at least 200 pounds to make her really worth .keeping. The theory seems to be all right, but evea that statement is too favorable for the cow as she is ordinarily handled, or rather, as her butter-fat is handled. The above figures are based on 'the butter being worth about 20 cents per pound the year round. But how about the cow whose butter is sold for about 10 cents per pound the year round? If her cost of keeping be $30 per year then it is evident that it would take 300 pounds of butter to pay for her support alone, and that she would have to be an exceedingly good animal to make any profit whatever. It is very evident that the farmer must either make butter that will bring a good being to market tbe hens before molting begins, but where one is not crowded for room and has had success fn getting eggs from old hens during the winter it would seem equally as unwise to dispose of nice year-old hens, so a few words of advice daring this critical period may be timely. Critical is the word used, but it need not be so if the birds are healthy and have not been fed stimulating feed, but one must surely give a little extra attention during feathering time. A little oilmeal in their mash or a feed of sunflower seeds twice a week will be found helpful toward making a new growth of clothes; also see that they have plenty of cool water and shade, green feed, grit and a dust bath in a cool place, and if not having the run of a good grassy pasture, the refuse cabbage heads would be extra acceptable. Increase the allowance of feed, and as grit Is a necessity at all times it is of great importance now. If the supply of insects is limited, give meat or bone in some form; you could not receive greater returns for money Invested. A healthy hen, if given care somewhat like the above, will lay through the molt, and will be ready for the egg-basket in winter equal to the best of her early hatched pullets, but if allowed to forage through the molt, the chances are against your getting any of her eggs until spring. A word of caution now— do not r«lax the feed and care as soon as she is seemingly clothed, for the drain has left her in a slightly weakened condition, and she is not clothed entire when she appears to be, as you will find if you part her feathers. It is wise to remove or sell the cocks at the beginning of the molt. Better sell them unless an exceptionally nice one. It ought to be needless to say that the hens should be kept free of lice then, as they should be so at all times. A little sulphur ia beneficial, but itsi use Is so abused I will not advise it. Don't use it externally or internally during damp weather. A rusty nail or two in their drinking water will do no harm, but may do good, and a feed of onions occasionally will go far toward keeping them In health; also slacked lime left where they can have access to it; mix it with their charcoal; they will not eat enough to hurt them.

There will be a Thermopylae in your own household where God will tell you to stand.

It was a very hot afternoon on the Southeastern railway, says the Academy. In the carriage were two ladies who were young and happy, a lady who was elderly and apparently, single, and a little girl. At Orpington there entered a tall, fresh, loose-limbed boy, of 19 or so, carrying surveying poles and a large basket, who took the seat opposite the two ladies, who were young. As the train "panted along and the carriage became more and more stifling, the boy was noticed to be growing restless and nervous. Twice or thrice he made as if to speak and each time thought better of it, and then, suddenly reaching out the basket and displaying its contents to the two friends, he gasped, indicating one of them with a timid eye: "Would you rnlnd taking some of these? They've just been given me, but I couldn't eat them all, you know, and * * * so very hot * * * and, really, if' you would be so kind * * *?" The basket was loaded with strawberries and he was quickly as- .sured that his request was not an impertinence. He then turned to the little girl, who no sooner observed his intention that she crossed over to the basket side, and, seating herself within range of the fruit, saved him further trouble. To the elderly lady, however, he had to repeat his Invitation. Frigidly accepting it, she took two strawberries from the basket with much ceremony. At New Cross the boy gathered together bis property and jumped out. "What a dear boy!" said one of the two friends. The Jittie girl looked wistfully after him. "I have never," said tbe elderly tightening her lips ana turning to the other two, "I have never been so embarrassed jn my life," price or he must keep cows far above the average in quality. * * * Recent experiments show that the digestibility of milk is not greatly affected by sterilization. The knowledge of this fact is of Immense value to the dairyman, for he is thereby led to realize that the greatest objection to sterilization has been done away with. And if sterilization is not objectionable, certainly Pasteurization will not be, for the latter requires the milk to be heated to only 155 degrees, while the sterilization of milk requires a much higher temperature. Even boiled milk is declared to be only slightly inferior to milk In its natural state. The only appreciable difference would be in the case of feeding the milk to invalids and children. Some of the doctors who have investigated the matter declare that sterilized milk is not even slightly inferior to milk in Its natural state. Even if the milk be slightly harder to digest, that fact is more than overbalanced by the fact that the element of danger to life has been eliminated from it, In the form of typhoid fever germs, germs of tuberculosis and of other diseases carried by water and consequently by milk. » » * The feeding of skimmed milk to calves is a thing that has been carried on with great success by our best dairymen and stock raisers. Most of them now regard it as a full substitute for whole milk, even without the addition of other materials to take the place of the fat that has been removed in the cream. Those that are raising dairy calves say they do not want the fat in the milk at all, as they are not trying to make fat, but muscle. But in the case of 'calves to be used for future beef or breeders of beeves it is perhaps desirable to encourage the fat- forming habit by putting something in the milk that will give the calves an abundant supply of fat-formers. In Holland some feeders put starch in the milk. Potato starch is the kind used there, but presumably corn starch would be as good. About one and three-quarter ounces of starch Is used to every quart of skim-milk. This is is at all times good, but is probably never needed more than now. Don't think this is too much fussing and doctoring, for there is no remedy or help mentioned but what is in reach of every farm wife, except the oilmeal and bonemeal, but If you have sunflowers the oil meal is not needed, and bonemeal Is in the nature of a food. The loss of one or two goods hens would more than balance against the bother, to say nothing of having your hens in 'laying condition in time for high prices, and then there is no success without labor, the degree of success to correspond to the amount of labor. Take the best possible care of what you have, al\v^ 's aiming to have it better. EMMA CLEARWATER3. American Homes la Germany. American horses as well as manufactures are making inroads upon the German markets and are giving the subjects of Emperor William some concern. Consul Winter at Annaberg, In dealing with the importation of horses into Germany, sends an article from the Hamburger Nachrichten, which says: "Importations from America have caused the horse raisers of Holstein to suffer much of late. A stock company has just been formed in Berlin for the express purpose of importing horses from the United States. The Americans have succeeded in breeding a horse which compares favorably in every way with the Holsteiii animal, especially in those points so highly prized in a workhorse—namely: broad hips and large build generally. The best markets for Holstein horses has always been the provinces of Saxony, Thurlngia, and Brunswick. The demand is created by the large sugar factories. This market has been decreasing of late, owing to American horses being purchased in Berlin. A few days ago this Ber'.in company shipped a drove of eighty through Hamburg en route for Milan, Italy, where they are to be used on the tramways. Almost every week a long freight train filled with American horses leaves the Berliner Bahnhof for various parts of Germany. In spite of expensive freight and a tariff of ?7 per head the Americans have built up a respectable competition in the German market. Wanted, vfntuen lo Itln.l Dr*«* Shield* at home.

Congressman Botkin says: "My Dear Doctor—lit gives me pleasure to certify to the excellent curatHe qualities of your medicines—Pe-ru-na plac ( ed in half the quantity of milk to be used and cooked up till the whole forme a thin paste. This paste is then mixed with the rest of tne mllS, and the whole forms a very acceptable vn- Won for the calves. Use a Pure-Bred Sire.—In selecting a flock, I would not say to purchase pure-bred ewes. While purity of breeding is an absolute necessity on the part of the sire, it is not at all essential on the part of the dam. Purity of breeding on the part of the sire tends to render him prepotent, and, because of this prepotency, it gives him the ability to effect improvement. The lack of purity ot breeding on the part of the dam takes away her power to resist change in the direction desired when mated with a pure-bred sire, consequently dams of very mixed breeding are excellent material upon which to commence the work of up-grading, so far as blood elements are concerned. Allow mo to emphasize, here, that, under no consideration, use anything but a pure-bred registered ram, and in making a selection be sure and get a good individual as well as a good pedigree.—B. S. Kirkpatrjck. Sterilized milk or cream, properly speaking, is that in which all the germs have been destroyed (usually by repeated heating to 2ia Degrees J?.-T boiling point), but in dairy practice the term is applied to milk or cream which" has been heated once to a temperature of about aia degrees F. Congressman Botkin, of Wlnfleld. Kan. and Alan-a-lin. I have been afflicted more or less for a quarter of a century with catarrh of the stomach and constipation. A residence in Washington nas increased these troubles. A few nottles of your medicine have given' «ie almost complete relief, and I am sure that a continuation of them will effect a permanent cure. Pe-ru-na ia surely a wonderful remedy for catarrhal affections." J. D. Botkin. Tha most common form of summer catarrh is catarrh of the stomach. This is generally known as dyspepsia. Congressman Botkin was a victim of this Disease twenty-five years. Pe-ru-na cures these oases like magic. Address l>r. Hartmau, Columbus, O., for a free book. The microbes that cause chills and fever and malaria enter the system through mucous membranes made porous by catarrh. Pe-ru-na heals the mucous membranes and prevents the entrance of malarial germs, thus preventing and curing these affections.
