IIB one is apt to do in time of great national bereavement, and forgetting the presence of his wife and two sons who made up his family, he has a dream, not like the dreams of ordinary character, which generally come from indigestion, but a vision most instructive, and under the touch of the hand of the Almighty. The place, the ancient temple: building grand, awful, majestic. Within that temple a throne higher"and grander than thin occupied by any czar or Biiltan or emperor. On that throne, the eternal Christ. In linos surrounding that throne, thp brightest celestials, not the cherubim, hut higher than they, the most exquisite and radiant of the heavenly inhabitants: the seraphim. They are called burners because they look like (ire. Lips of lire, eyes of fire, feet of lire. In addition to the features and the limbs which suggest a human being, there are pinions, which suggest the llthcst. the swiftest, the most buoyant and the most aspiring of all unintelligent crpati.-m— a bird. Bach seraph had six wings, each two of the wings for a different purpose. Isaiah's dream quivers and flashes with these pinions. Now folded, now spread, now beaten In locomotion. "With twain he covered his feet, with twain he covered his face, and with twain he did fly." The probability is that these wings were not all used at once. The seraph standing (here near the throne overwhelmed at the insignificance of the Paths his feet had trodden as compared witli the paths trodden by the feet of God, and with the lameness of his locomotion amounting almost to decrepitude as compared with the di- of thotf gtfMtt td the ho*c of God." Especial peril: "Their feet shall slide in due time." Connected with the world's dissolution: "fite shall set one foot on the sea and the other on the earth.'' tlivc me the history of your foot, Sud I will give you the history of your lifetime. Tell nu> up what steps it hath gone, down what declivities, and in what roads and in what directions, and 1 will know more about yon than I want to know. None of us could endure the scrutiny. Our feet not always in paths of God. Sometimes in paths of worldlines.-?. Our feet, a divine and glorious machinery for usefulness and work, so often making missteps, so often going in the wrong direction. God knowing every step, the patriarch saying, "Thou seltest a print on the heels of my feet." Crimes of the hand crimes of the tongue, crimes of the eye crimes of the ear not worse than crimes of the foot. Oh, we want the wings of humility to cover the feet. Ought we not to go into self-abnegation before the all-searching, all-scrutinizing, all- tiring eye of C3od? The seraphs do. How much more we? "With twain he covered the feet." All this talk about the dignity of human nature is braggadocio and sin. Our nature started at the hand of God regal, but it has been pauperized. There is a well in Belgium which once had very pure water, and it was stoutly masoned with stone and brick; but that well afterward became the center of the battle of Waterloo. At the opening of the battle the soldiers with their sabers compelled the gardener, William Von Kylsom, to draw water out of the well for them, and it was very pure water. But the battle raged, and three hundred dead and half dead were flung into the well for quick and easy burial; so that the well of refreshment became the well of death, and long after, people looked down into the well aud they saw the bleached skulls but no water. So the human soul was a well j of good, but the armies of sin have fought around it, and fought across it and been slain, and it has become a well of skeletons. Dead hopes, dead resolutions, dead opportunities, dead ambitions. An abandoned well miles.? Christ shall reopen and purify aud fill it as the well of Belgium never was. Unclean, unclean. Another seraphic posture in the text: "With twain lie covered .the facR." That means reverence Godward. Never so much irreverence abroad in the world as to-day. You see it in the de- mlght'est seraph cannot look unabashed ttpon hlta. Involuntarily the wings come np. "With twain he covered hip face.*' * * * As yon take a pinch of salt or powder between your thumb and two fingers, so Isaiah indicates God takes up the earth. He measures the dust of the earth, the original there indicating that God takes all the dust of all the continents between the thumb anil two flngers. You wrap around your hand a blue ribbon five times, ten times. You say it is five hand-breadths, or it is ten hand-breadths. So indicates the prophet God winds the blue ribbon of the sky around his hand. "He meteth out the heavens with a span." You know that balances are made of a beam suspended in the middle with two basins at the extremity of equal heft. In that way what a vast heft has been weighed. But what are all the balances of earthly manipulation compared with the balances that Isaiah saw suspended when he saw God putting into the scales the Alps and the Appenines and Mount Washington aud the Sierre Nevadas. You see the earth had to be ballasted. It would not do to have too much weight in Europe, or too much weight in Asia, or too much weight in Africa, or in America; so when God made the mountains he weighed them. The Bible distinctly says so. God knows the weight of the great ranges that cross the continents, AKB GAItDEN MATTERS OP INTEREST AGRICULTURISTS.

U M E R O U S attempts to establish beet sugar factories in America have failed. and the principal cause of failure has been stated to be the inability to secure a sufficient supply of beets.

"With I „;,, twain he did cover the feet." Standing there overpowered by the faced statuary, in the cutting out of figures from line paintings, in the chip- overmatching splendors of God's glory and unable longer with the eyes to look upon them, and wishing those C.VJR shaded from the insufferable glory the pinions gather over the countenance "With twain he did cover the face." Then as God tells this seraph to go to the farthest outpost of immensity on message of light and love and' of monuments for a memento, in the fact that military guard must stand at the grave of Lincoln and Garfield, and that old shade trees must be cut down for firewood, though fifty George P. Morrises beg the woodmen to spare the tree, and that calls a corpse a cadaver, and that speaks of death as going over to the majority, and substitutes for the reverent terms father and mother, "the old man" and "the iem' ! .'' wom!m '" am ? «"ds nothing im- the tons, the pounds avoirdupois, the ounces, the grains, the millegrammes —just how much they weighed then, and just how much they weigh now. "He weighed the mountains in scales and the hills in a balance." See that eagle in the mountain nest. It looks so sick, so ragged-feathered, so worn-out and so half asleep. Is that eagle dying? No. The ornithologist will tell you it is the moulting reason with that bird. Not dying, but noulting. You see that Christian sick and weary and worn-out and seeming about to expire on what is called his death-bed. The world says he is dying. I say it is the moulting season for his soul—the body dropping away, the celestial pinions coming on. Not dying, but moulting. Moulting out of darkness and sin and struggle into glory and into God. Why do you not shout? Why do you sit shivering at the thought of death and trying to hold back and wishing you could stay here lorever, and speak of departure as though the subject were filled with skeletons and the varnish of coffins, and as though you preferred lame fr>" k to swift wing? and get back before the first anthem most practical and useful lesson ^°' 1 for you and me—when we see the sei- things aph spreading his wings over the foci- is tho lesson of humility at imperfection.

They talk of the love of God in a way that shows you they believe it does not make any difference how bad a man is here, he will come in at the shining gate. Tuoy talk of the love of God lu a way which shows you (hey think it is a general jail delivery for all the abandoned and the scoundrelly of the universe. No punishment hereafter for any wrong done bore. The Bible gives two descriptions of God, and they are just opposite, and they are both true; In one place the Bible says God is love, in another place the Bible says God is a consuming flre. The explanation is plain as plain can be. God through Christ is Jove. God out of Christ is firs. To win the one and to escape the other we have only to throw ourselves body mind and soul into Christ's keeping.' "No," says Irreverence, "I want no atonement, I want no pardon, I want no intervention; I will go tip and face Cod, and 1 will challenge him, and I will defy him, arid I will ask him what he wants to do with me." So the Unite confronts the initiate, so a tack hammer tries to break a thunderbolt, so the breath of human nostrils deiies the everlasting God, while the hierarchs of heaven bow the head and uend the knee as tho King's chariot goes by, and the archangel turns away because he cannot endure the splendor, and the c-horus of all the empires of O r-rople of God, let us stop playing the fcol and prepare ,,i - or rapturous flight.

Will you fly downward or will you fly upward? Everything on the wing this day bidding u.s aspire. Holy Spirit on the wing. Angel of the New Covenant on the wing.

Rather standing there may they' see a sign more vivid on your still face than the vestiges of pain, something that will indicate that it was a happy exit—the clearance from oppressive quarantine the cast-off chrysalid, the moulting oJ the faded and the useless, and the ascent from malarial valleys to bright shining mountain-tops, and bo led to say, as they stand there contemplating your humility and your reference In life, and your happiness in death"With twain he covered the feet, with twain he covered the face, with twain he did fly." Wings! Wings! Wings! an some previous experience in the culture of this crop. Since the sugar beet is a very valuable stock food and Is cultivated by many farmers for this purpose alone, the experience necessary to its successful culture may be obtained without loss, though no sugar factory should ever be located in the neighborhood; and in view of the probable development of the beet sugar industry In northern Ohio the Experiment station recommends to the farmers of that region that they begin immediately to get the practical experience necessary to the successful management of this crop. Sugar beets and mangolds have been grown for a number of years by the Ohio Experiment station for stock food and the experience thus gained is summarized below. This crop may be successfully grown on any soil well adapted to potatoes or corn, the ideal soil being a rich loam, somewhat sandy and well drained. The two extremes of heavy clays and light muck lands should be avoided, and drainage, natural or artificial, is essential. The ideal site for a beet crop is a clean clover sod. It should "be plowed not less than eight inches deep, as early in the spring as possible and most thoroughly pulverized. If a garden seed drill is at hand the seed may be sown with that, setting the drill so as to drop the seeds two or three inches apart. If no drill is to be had, mark out the ground with a sled marker, making the furrows one inch to an inch and a half deep, and two feet to thirty inches apart and drop the seeds by hand, covering about one inch and packing the earth over the seeds. The planting may be done at any time from the middle of April to the flrst of June, preferably not later than the middle of May. When the plants reach a height of about four inches they should be thinned so as to stand about six inches apart. Large beets are not desirable for sugar making, as they contain a smaller percentage of sugar than the medium-sized ones, and for the same reason medium beets are more valuable for stock food. After thinning the weeds must be kept down and the surface kept loose.. To accomplish this at least cost, some harrow or weeder should be used at least once a week from the date of planting until the tops shade the ground, going over the crop at least once before the plants appear above the profitable. Fresh horse manure and loam IB carted into the cave and laid In beds fifteen inches deep and 10 by 20 feet in area. The mixture heats to 120 or 130 degrees at flrst and when this subsides the bed is sown with spawn. The mushroom spawn is produced in England and France chiefly and is imported into this country in the form of bricks or as flakes and the fungus is propagated by growth and division, the mushrooms give off spores which act as seed for the growth of the plant, but all efforts to gather the seed have failed. The spawn- grower prepares a bed of manure and loam and when its condition is just right It is cut into bricks and into each piece is placed a small piece of spawn. The growth is rapid and in a few weeks each brick is impregnated with the fungus. The growth is stopped at just I the right time by drying the brick and these bricks will keep indefinitely under proper conditions. When the spawn is to be used to sow a bed of mushrooms it is divided into small bits and these bits are planted about two nches deep ten to fifteen inches apart n the beds prepared for it in the cave, cellar or mine. About three months are required for a bed to develop. Then he mushrooms come up thick and ast. The mushroom is not the plant tself but the fruit of the plant. The plant, as it fills the soil, resembles a hick net of little white threads or fibers. When the mushroom has been given to the world the plant dies and a new bed must be prepared and replanted. The Grand Rapids plaster quarry where the mushrooms are grown is dark to absolute blackness and the cultivation and harvesting are all done by torchlight. To a stranger the sight is weird, indeed, to como suddenly upon one of the mushroom beds. The mushrooms, growing singly and in bunches, in the torchlight have a brilliant whiteness and seem to reflect the light. Around the mushrooms, if closely examined, will be found hosts of little flies, which seem to thrive in the darkness.

Mushrooms correspondent _ , - of the Chicago Record, writing from Grand Rapids Michigan, says: t-liUrlren The Denver Republican 'quotes - :— -i~>*-.v-uh> M.*l interesting story of childish heroism related by Mr. Spearman, attorney for the department of justice at Washington. He has been taking testimony concerning some Indian depredation claims. In taking such testimony he says, I frequently hear interesting stories concerning early frontier life I remember one case in particular one of the most remarkable exhibitions of courage in an eight-year-old boy that I have ever heard of. It occurred near the town of Beaver, in Utah. A ranch was attacked by Indians, and a man who was visiting the ranchman was killed, and for a while it seemed as if the whole party, wife and children would fall a prey to the savages. The louse was surrounded by the Indians md the people within defended them- best but the diapason heavcn comes in with full "Holy, holy, holy!"

One must be familiar with fie ' cac y e ofth marauL, iUo!stui-« of the Soil. Harrowing to save moisture is thus treated in bulletin No. 120 of the New York experiment station. "The harrow, besides pulverizing and fining the soil for the seed-bed, is most efficient in furnishing a soil mulch. The spring-tooth harrow is in reality a cultivator and its action is similar to that of the cultivator. When used as an instrument to conserve moisture, the teeth should penetrate to the depth of about three inches, and to produce the best effect the ridges left by it should be leveled off by a smoother which can now be purchased as an attachment to the harrow. The tillage of orchards by the harrow is now practiced extensively and nothing short of irrigation will so nearly meet the demands of trees for moisture, particularly upon the heavier soils. A harrow having a plow-like action of its blades serves to pulverize the surface soil, to spread the loose mulch evenly, nnd it leaves a most excellent seed-bed. The cutaway or disc harrow may be beneficial or of absolute Injury. If the discs are so set that they cover but a portion of the surface with the mulch, they leave a ridge exposed to the action of the wind and sun .and the rate -of evaporation is greatly increased. The discs should be set at such an angle that the whole surface shall be stirred or covered. Their chief value lies in their cutting and pulverizing action on clay soils, but as couservers of moisture they are inferior to the harrow with plow-like action or the spring tooth. Soils which need the disc narrower should generally be gone over again with some shallower tool. The mellower the soil the lighter should be the work done by the harrow. On most heavy orchard soils it will be found necessary to use the heavy tools like the spring-tooth and disc harrows in the,spring, but if the laud is properly handled it should be in such condition as to allow the use of a spike-tooth or smoothing harrow during summer. This light summer harrowing should be sufficient-to keep down the weeds and it preserves the soil mulch in most excellent condition. With such a tool" and on land in good tilth a man can harrow ten or more acres a day. Spraying Grape Vines.—The advan- age of spraying grape vines is not alone in preserving fruit from mildew and rot. Even when these are not iresent on vines unsprayed, a close examination of the leaves will show patches of brown, beginning early in tho summer, and gradually spreading during the season. The ripening both of fruit and of this year's growth of wood depends on the vigor and healthfulness of the leaves during the graving season. Whatever injures the Jeav ! W.L.
