I! AMONA, IOWA WEDNESDAY JUNE 9. 1807, IftWH, tfc* ¥*it: "Afid A*«, In itife *fctttf itarf Ninth *«k* of till iftfeieo W»* 0U- eu«d in His frwA fntll ttfi BU****tv«» i T this season o! the year, when medical colleges of all schools of medicine i ate giving diplomas (to young doctors. ,a&d at the capital /and in many of the cities medical associations are assem* foilng to consult about the advancement of the interests of their profession, I feet this discourse is appropriate. In my text is King Asa with the gout. High living and no exercise have vitiated his blood, and my text presents him with his inflamed and bandaged feet on an ottoman. In defiance of God, Whom ho hated, he sends for certain conjurers or quacks. They come and give him all sorts of lotions and panaceas. They bleed him. They sweat him. They manipulate him. They blister him. They poultice him. They scarify him. They drug him. They rut him. They kill him. He was only a young man, and had a disease •which, though very painful, seldom proves fatal to a young man, and he ought to have got well; but he fell a victim to charlatanry and empiricism. "And Asa in the thirty and ninth year of his reign- was diseased in his 'eet, until his disease was exceeding great; yet in his disease ho sought not to the Lord, but to the physicians. And Asa slept with his fathers." That is, the doctors killed him. * ° * Men of the medical profession we often meet in tho home of distress. We shake hands across the cradle of agonized infancy. We join each other in an attempt at solace where the paroxysm of grief demands an anodyne as well as a prayer. Wo look into each other's sympathetic faces through the dusk, as the night of death is falling in • 'the sick room. We do not have to climb over any barrier today in order to greet each other, for our professions are in fnil sympathy. You, doctor, are our first and last earthly friend. You stand at the gates of life when we enter this world, and you stand at the gates of death when we go out of it. In the closing moments of our earthly existence when the hand of the wife, or mother, or sister, or daughter, shall hold our right hand, it will give strength to our dying moments if we can leel the tips of your fingers along the pulse of our left wrist. ,• Wo do not meet today, as on other days, in houses of distress, but by the pleasant altars of God, and I propose a sermon of helpfulness and good cheer. As in the nursery children sometimes re-enact all the scenes of the sick room, so today you play that you are the patient and that I am the physician, and take my prescription just once. It shall be a tonic, a sedative, a dietetic, a disinfectant, a stimulus, and an anodyne at the game time. "Is there not balm in Gil- cad?' Is there not a physician there?" In the first place, I think all the medical profession should become Christians because of the debt of gratitude they owe to God tor the honor he has put upon their calling. No other calling In all the world, except it be that of the Christian ministry, has received so great an honor as yours. Christ liimself was not only preacher, but physician, surgeon, aurist, ophthalmologist, and under his mighty power optic and auditory nerve thrilled with light and sound, and catalepsy arose from its fit, and the club foot was straightened, and anchylosis went out of the stiffened tendons, and the foaming maniac became placid as a child, and the streets of Jerusalem became an extemporized hospital crowded with convalescent victims of casualty and invalidism. All ages, haYO/.wpven the garland;for tho doctor's "brow. Homer said; 'A wise physician, skilled our wounds Vto heal, Is more than armies to the public weal Cicero said: "There is nothing in which men so approach the gods as when they try to give health to otbei men." Charles IX made proclamation that all the Protestants of France 'should bo put to death on St, Bartholo mew's day, but made one exception , and that the case of Pare, the father o: French surgery. The battlefields of tb< 'American revolution welcomed Drs Mercer and Warren and Bush. When the French army was entirely demoral ized at fear of the plague, the leading 'surgeon of that army Jnuoculated him 'self with the plague to show the sol dlers that there was no contagion in }t.

And thfcn eotn^ and lofik at the insane asylums of tJtl- ea and kirkbride—sofaed and pictured, ibfarled, concerted, until all the arts and the adornments come to coax recreant reason to assume nef throne. Look at Edward Jenner, the great hero of medicine, tfotlr hundred thousand >eople annually dying in Europe from the smallpox, Jennef finds that by the noculatioh of people With vaccine from a cow the great scourge of nations may >e afrestedj The ministers of the Gospel denounced vaccination* small wits caricatured Edward Jettttef as rid- ng in a great procession oh the back of a cow; and grave men expressed it as their opinion that all of the diseases of the brute creation would be transplanted into the human family; and they gave instances where, they said, actually horns had come out on the foreheads of Innocent persons, and people had begun to chew the cud! But Dr. Jenner, the hero of medicine, went on fighting for vaccination until it has been estimated that that one doctor, in fifty years, has saved more lives than all the battles of any one century destroyed. Passing along the streets of Edinburgh a few weeks after the death of Sir James Y. Simpson, I saw the photograph of the doctor in all the windows of the shops and stores, and well might that photograph be put in every window, for he first used chloroform as an anaesthetic agent. In other days they tried to dull human pain by the hash- eesh of the Arabs and the madrepore of the Roman and the Greek; but it was left to Dr. James Simpson to introduce chloroform as an anaesthetic. Alas for the writhing subjects of surgery in other centuries! Blessed be God for the wet sponge or vial In the hand of the operating surgeon in the clinical department of the medical college, or in the sick room of the domestic circle, or on the battle field amid :housands of amputations. Napoleon after a battle rode along the line and saw under a tree, standing In the snow, Larrey the surgeon operating upon the wounded. Napoleon passed on, and twenty-four hours afterward came along the same place, and he saw the same surgeon operating in the same place, and''he had riot left it. Alas for :ho battlefields without chloroform. But now tho soldier boy takes a few breaths from the sponge and forgets all the pangs of the gunshot fracture, and while the surgeons of the field hospital are standing around him, he lies there dreaming of home, and mother, and heaven. No more parents standing around a suffering child, struggling to got away from the sharp instrument, but mild slumber instead of excruciation and the child,wakes up and says, "Father, what's the matter? What's the doctor here today for?" Oh, blessed bo God for James Y. Simpson and the lieavcn descending mercies of chloroform. The medical profession steps into the court room, and after conflicting witnesses have left everything in a fog, by chemical analyses shows the guilt or innocence of the prisoner, as by math- ematlc demonstration, thus adding boors to medical jurisprudence. * * * It seems to me that tho most beautiful benediction of the medical profession has been dropped upon the poor No excuse now for any one's not having scientific attendance, Dispensaries and infirmaries everywhere under the control of tho best doctors, some of them poorly paid, some of them not paid at all. A half-starved woman comes out from the low tenement house into the dispensary; and unwraps the rags from her babe, a bundle of ulcers, and rheum, and pustules, and over that Httlo sufferer bends tie accumulated wisdom of the ages front Esculaplua down to last week's autopsy. In on<J dispensary, in one year, one hundred and fifty thousand prescriptions wore issued. Why do I show .you what God has al)pwed,thiF profession to do? Is it to stir up yoiu vanity? Oh, no, The day has gone by for pompous doctors, with conspicuous gold-headed canes and powdered wigs which were the accompaniments in the days when the barber used to carry through tho streets of London Dr Brockelsby's wig, to the admiration and awe of the people, saying: "Make way! here conies Dr, Brookel.tby's wig.' No, I announce these things not onlj to increase the appreciation of laymei in regard to tho work of physicians but to stir in the hearts of men of tlu medical profession a feeling of gratl tude to God that they have been al lowed to put their hand to such a mag nificent work, and that they have beoi called into such illustrious company Have you never felt a spirit of gratl tude for this opportunity? Do you no feel thankful now? Then I am afraid doctor, you are not a Christian, am that the old proverb which Chris quotet} in his sermon may bo appro prlate 'to you; "PUysltilan, heal thy self." * « * There five many who • always blame the doctor because the people die, for ^getting the Divine enactment: "It i; appointed unto all men ouce to die.'

To keep up under this hefvous strain, to go through this night'Work, to bear all these annoy_- ances, many physicians have resorted o strong drink and perished. Others lave appealed to .God fof sympathy and help, and have lived. Which were he wise doctors, judge ye? Again: The medical profession ought o be Christians because there are pro- '(salonal exigencies when they need God, Asa's destruction by unblessed physicians was a warning. There arc awful crises In every medical practice when a doctor ought to know how to pray. All the hosts of ills which some- imes hurl themselves on the weak points of tho physical organism, or Aith equal ferocity will assault the en- ire line of susceptibility to suffering. The next dose of medicine will decide whether or not the happy home shall be brokqn Up. Shall it be this medj- ;ine or that medicine? God help the doctor. Between the five drops and the ten drops may be the question of life or death. Shall it be the five or ten drops? Be careful how you put the <nlfe through those delicate portions of the body, for if it swings out of the way the sixth part of an inch tho pa- :ient perishes. Under such circumstances a physician needs not so much consultation with men of his own call- ng, as he needs consultation with that 3od wl?o strung the nerves and built the cells, and swung the crimson tide through the arteries. You wonder why the heart throbs—why it seems to open and shut. There is no wonder about it. It is God's hand, shutting, opening, limiting, opening, on every heart. When a man comes to doctor the eye, lie ought to he in communication with dim who said to the blind: "Receive thy sight." When a doctor comes to treat a paralytic arm, he ought to be in him who said: hand, and he stretched It forth." When a man comes to doctor a bad case of hemorrhage, he needs to be in communication with him who cured the issue of blood, saying: 'Thy faith hath saved thoe." I do not mean to say that piety will make up for medical skill. A bungling doctor, confounded with what was not a very bad case, went into the next room to pray. A skilled physician was called in. Ho asked for the first practitioner. "Oh," they said, "he's in the next room praying." "Well," said the skilled doctor, "tell him to come out here and help; he can pray and work f AMf AND 6ABDM.

ULLETIN 129, Corn c 11 Experiment Station: Water fciid its constituents, h,y - drogen and oxygen, and carbon, nitro- geh, phosphoric acidi potash and lime are the chief components of every crop that the farmer or the horticulturist produces. If the quantity that the crop can get of any one of them is too small for the making of a good' yield, the yield will not be sufficient no matter how much there may be of all tho others. If the quantity of any one of them is more than enough for a good yield, it is only foolishness to supply any more of that substance in fertilizers. Tho supply of water and its constituents, and of carbon, are practically beyond the control of tho crop grower except in so far as water may hero and thero be supplied by irrigation, or may everywhere be conserved by shallow surface tillage properly managed. Tho supply of llmo is usually large enough in ordinary arable soils. Therefore only nitrogen, phosphoric acid and potash are left to be looked after; these, as every consumer of commercial fertilizers knows, arc the things that he pays for in whatever of these fertilizers he buys. By the introduction of leguminous plants, such as clover, vetch, lupine, peas, bean and the like, into his rotations, he may save himself from the necessity of buying so much nitrogen as he might otherwise have' to get in order to preserve the proper balance of tho plant foods in his soils. These crops, as almost every farmer knows, can get a part of their nitrogen from the air; and they will in general get more of It from the air and less from the soil the poorer the soil is in available nitrogen, and the richer it is within certain limits in potash and phosphoric acid. Every ordinary arable soil has far more than enough of nitrogen, phosphoric acid and potash for the production of a good many crops; nnd yet there are many such soils which will not yield paying crops unless fertilized with one or more of these very same plant foods. It may be taken for granted that an acre of every such soil contains in the uppermost twelve inches at least 5,600 pounds of nitrogen, 5,000 of potash and 3,800 of phosphoric acid. These quantities are from 50 to 500 times greater than those sold off the farm In any crop. There is at least 50 times as much nitrogen in such a soil as is sold in any part of any crop, and much oftener 100 or even 200 times as much. There is at times as much potash as is at the same time." It was all in that, carried off the farm in any part of a sentence. Do the best we can and ask God to help us. Thero are no two men In all the world, it seems to me, that so much need the grace of God as tho minister who doctors the sick soul, and the physician who prescribes for the diseased body. * o o crop sold, and oftener 500 times as much. Similar figures might bo given for phosphoric acid. Why, then, must we fertilize our soils in one way or another? The one most important reason is that these plant foods in tho soil are foi the most part in an insoluble, or as , very commonly said, unavailable form But I must close, for there may be an d that they usually become available suffering men and women waiting in only little by little each year. That your office, or on tho hot pillow, wondering why you don't come. But before you go, O doctors, hear my prayet for your external salvation. Blessed will be the reward in heaven for the faithful Christian physician. 'Some day, through overwork, or from bend- Ing over a patient and catching his contagious breath, the doctor comes home, and lies down faint and sick. Ho is too weary to feel his own pulse or talte the diagnosis of his own com- plajnt. He is worn out. The fact is, hia they do thus become gradually available is clearly shown by some of tho experiments of Lawes and Gilbert, o EriRland; some of their plats have yielded crops of wheat and other cereals now for fifty years and more without any manure, it may be, however, that one of these foods does become available year by year in large enough quantities to share towards a good contribute it. c yield of some crop, provided that there is enough of the other two, but that thero is in fact woi-k on earth is ended. Tell those•'. not enough of the other two; or It may people in the office there they need not b ? that enough of two of the foods will wait-any longer; the-doctor will' never [bccome-avallable fast enough each sea- go there again.

Notice tho Wanks, and those bearing a few have partially recovered, Where the fruitage is heavy the recovery hag been more complete, it costs as much to cultivate the blanks and half fruiters as it does those fruiting heavily. The great secret, then, is to maintain strong and vigorous plants that may throw their whole life into producing fruit instead of foliage. What is said of strawberries holds good of all fruit- bearing plants. Pedigree plants may be said to be plants that have been bred up by careful selection and high cultivation produces fruit true to type and in the grandest perfection, and transmits this ability to its offspring or breeds. When it cannot perform this office it is said to have lost its pedigree. VnicUcal Shoe)) Hreertlnff. Mr. Thomas Shaw, of the Minnesota State Agrltultural College, is the best recognised authority on sheep breeding in tho West. In an interesting article in the Northwestern Agriculturist ho answers some questions that occur to many farmers as to breeds, breeding, feeding and management: "The breed or grade of sheep should bo guaged by the object of the grower. If he wishes to raise pure breds, the most money, as fashion runs now, would probably be made from some of tho Down breeds, as, for instance, the Shropshire, Oxford Down or Southdown. But taking it tor granted that grade sheep are meant, I would unhesitatingly recommend what may be called common ewes of good form. By good form I mean compact, round, plump bodies, good, full, wide breasts, long and deep hind quarters, and legs short rather than long. I would not care much what the breeding was provided thero was not too much Merino blood. But grade Merinos will answer to begin with, for they are very hardy. Of these pure-bred rams only should be used, and preferably those of the dark faced breeds. But it is not always necessary to use such rams. A cross of the long wools, as for instance the Liecester, the Lincoln or the Cotswold made now and then may answer very well. But try and get good, pure-bred rams. This is all-important. On 200 acres of good rich land 800 sheep and lambs could be grown per year. But to do that would require skillful management. Probably half that number could ordinarily be kept. At one station farm we have pastured sixteen ewes and lambs all summer for two successive summers but that was by what may be termed a forced system of production. The number, of course, will largely be regulated by the skill of the flock master, tho nature of the soil and the size, of the sheep. The net income will vary with the size and quality of the sheep, and with the wool product. But a good well-grown lamb at one year should weigh 130 pounds on an average. That weight is far above tho average here, but that it is so Is not the fault of the sheep. A well finished lamb at the age of ten to twelve months should bring ordinarily at home from four to five and a half cents per pound live weight. Ordinarily they don't bring nearly that much, but that is not the fault of the lambs, but rather of the growers. Such a lamb should shear from, say seven to twelve pounds of wool, according to the grade. The fleece of older sheep would bo a couple of pounds less, Tho best pasture Is a big question. Winter rape sown late in. August will provide excellent fall and spring pasture. After the rye, in eaten off in the spring, it may be followed by the Dwarf Essex rape or by sorghum. All these make excellent pastures. When 'the lambs do not come till tho grass is plentiful, ewes may be wintered very well in a shed made of poles and covered so deeply with straw as to prevent rain from dripping through, but if the lambs are to come early It is Imperative to have warm lambing pens. While sheep- husbandry is more easily learned than managing of other kinds of live stock, let me drop a word of caution to those who have never kept sheep. They should begin gradually where they arc unable to command the services of an experienced shepherd, Everywhere unless on marshy land, I would like to see people .going into sheep. They cannot do better. But agaiu-1 gay begin gradually. English View of American Apples.—A London journal says: "The American papers have rather lost thoir head over their enormous apple yield and their exporta-tions to the English markets, We are told that the English farmers find it impossible to compete with the American applo growers, and so on! Still they overlook the fact that, side by side with tho imported fruit, the English apple hag made 50 per cent more in most markets, and that the chujce- flavored home-grown fruit lias done much better this season than it has during the past ten years. The fact is the Americans had a, plethora of common fruit, and that the bad. prices realized, amply prove."
