But after sixteen years, 55e- rubabbel,\ the mighty soul, got a new call from Qod to go ahead with the Teniple building, and the Angel of the Lord in substance said: "They have Piled up obstacles In the way of Ze- rubbabel until they have become as a mountain, height above height, crag above crag; but it shall all be thundered down and made flat and smooth as the floor of a house. 'Who art thou. 0 great mountain? before Zerubbabel thou shalt become a plain.'" Well, the Cuthaeans are not all dead yet. They are busy in every neighborhood and every city and every nation of every age, heaping obstacles in the way of the cause of God. They have piled up hindrances above hindrances until they have become a hill, and the bill has become a mountain, and the mountain has become an Alp, and there it stands, right in the way of all movements for the world's salvation. Some people are so discouraged about the height and breadth of this mountain in front of them that they have done nothing for sixteen years and many of those who are at work trying to do something toward removing the mountain, toil in .such,a way that I can see they have not much faith that the mountain of hindrances will ever be remqved. They feel they must do their duty, but they feel all the time—I can hear it in their prayers and exhortations—that they are striking their pickaxes and shovels into the side of the Rocky Mountains. If the good Lord will help me while I preach 1 will give you the names of some of the high mountains which are really in the way,, and then show you that those mountains 'are to be prostrated, torn down, ground up. .leveled put out of sight forever.

Henry Rawlinson and Oppnrt and Hincke, and Palestine exploration societies, and Asyrlbloglsts,' and Egyptologists, have rolled another Bible up from the depths of the earth, and lo! it corresponds exactly with our Bible, the rock Bible just like the printed Bible, inscriptions on cylinders and brick-work cut thirty-eight hundred years before Christ testifying to the truth of what we read eighteen hundred and ninety-seven years after Christ. The story of the Tower of aabel has been confirmed by the fact that recently at Babel an oblong pile or brick one hundred and ten feet high evidences the remains of a fallen tower. Jn the Inspired Book of Ezra we read of the great and noble Asuapper, a name that meant nothing especial, un- The battle rages, and the general looks through his field glass at the troops, but ever and anon h 0 sweeps his field- glass backward and upward toward the hill, to see if the reserve forces are coming. "Hard pushed are we!" says the general. "I do wish those reinforcements would come up." After awhile the columns of the advancing cavttlry 'are seen "Ibssltig on the ridge of the hill, and then the flash of swords, and then the long lines of mounted troops, their horses in full gallop, and the general says, "All Is well. Hold i out, my men, a little longer. Let the sergeants ride along the lines and cheer the men and tell them reinforcements are coming."

What I say now is news to those prejudiced against the Bible. They are so far ' ' ' times " cows were doing all that it Was possible in the quantity and quality of milk, nnd the prices or returns would be all right when the time came to draw their pay; in other words, it was not a question of price so much as what they could make the cows do per month or year In. weight of milk or butter sold. Kansas has some superior advantages f or ' dairyin'g. We -can manufacture •; as . fine a butter, or at least it sells for as ; much per pound, as any sister state can boast; we have a rea,dy market for all and more than we can supply of fine goods; there have been large quantities of poor butter made in creameries as well as on farms— too much entirely. It costs more to make a poor article than a good one, and It brings less than half as much money, and I have years that quarrelsome, says Farm and It has been demonstrated that hens will lay as many eggs if no ma,ies are with them as when they are present. One effect of having the roosters with all the hens is that the farmer Is less careful selecting eggs for hatching, being inclined to Use eggs collected from the whole flock. This should not be the case. What should be done, in order to secure strong and healthy chicks, is to select about a dozen of the best hens and mate them with a choice male, using only eggs from the selected flock. As the hatching season with incubators is nearly here, for producing broilers, the farmers will, by the adoption oi this method, know what kind of chicks to expect, and what they should be when ready for market, but if he does not mate a flock for the purpose, using tho eggs from all of the hens on the farm, his chicks will be of all kinds, sizes and colors, with no uniformity, and will be but a lot of mongrels of which he knows nothing., and cannot expect good results therefrom.

This cannot be said of farm- made butter; it is, on the other hand, a continual drug on the markets of the ,world, selling at less than cost. Why not take the same raw material, sell it to a good and well-regulated creamery, and get twice the money for it, and have ready sale? Now, why all this difference? We say there are numerous causes, the principal one being lack of facilities for the making of butter on the average Kansas farm, and the large percentage of foreign matter that is in milk that cannot be strained out, all of^which is removed by the separator. The creamery makes a uniform grade; raises the standard of quality very materially; has an output that will enable it to establish a trade that will stay by it if the goods ..are kept up It has long since been proved that exclusive broiler plants are never long lived. Of course there are exceptions to that rule, but the exception conies only where the broiler plant has some good reliable egg farmer raise the eggs for him, says an exchange. But to gather up eggs here and there, no matter how the fowls are fed and kept, nor to what variety they belong, is a risky piece of business. When' common eggs are used, the broiler raiser has all sorts of blood to handle. He flnds all sizes and weights at the end of three months and very often is compelled to feed one-half of the lot auother mouth in order to get them up to the desired weight. But when the man uses his own eggs, or, in other words, when he uses the eggs from one breed, or one cross and feeds and cares for the stock for fertility, he is sure to have a uniform lot and meet with better success.

Spotty Buttor.—Sometimes impurity in the salt will make the butter spotty —this disfiguring being the effect of lime in the salt, and this is a common impurity in the cheap kinds of salt. The lime in salt of course will exist mostly as a chloride, and this will have the very worst effect on the butter, bleaching it in patches or streaks, and giving a soapy texture or flavor to It. Sometimes there is gypsum in the salt, and this has, as I have found, the effect of making round spots in the mass of butter wherever there is a speck of this sulphate of lime. There cannot be too great care taken to procure the purest kind of salt for dairy use; and it should be ground as fine as flour, so that if any impurity does exist in it, it may be evenly spread through the butter, and thus the color escape injury. Hard water, too, is not fit for washing tho butter, on account of the impurities in it being mostly lime or gypsum, both of which, as said, are injurious to the butter color,—Ex.' , , • It is not difficult "to t Hce why this calendar is so groat a favorite. 1 lie flgures on it are large enough to be rend across a room; its handsome appearance makes it worthy of a place in the best fur- nisbed office or library, while it is businesslike all the way through.

The dairy "n which the butter is kept while mak- ng, or resting and for the final working should be darkened by shades, so as to avoid this effect. Or the butter should be protected by a cover impregnable to the light. The light has a bleaching effect, and "this-Is-especially marked when the butter is put away in a gashed or flaky condition, by which one side of the flakes is exposed to light and the other side is in the shade My practice has always beon to cover the butter in the bowl with a doubled tow- e or oacco Saves money, makes health and manhood" Cure guaranteed.
