—«-"~-—~——-.- Dm LMOtMBat ALGONA, WEDNESDAY, JULY 28, 1897, THE CAUSE OF RlCHfEUUS- NE8S FLOURISHING. A Dlnt'onrao from the fpxt: kntnentn- tlons, Chapter ill, Verge 39—"Wherefore Doth A Llvlne Man Complain?"— Better Days Are Meat- at Hand, CHEERFUL, interrogatory in the most melancholy book of the Bible! Jeremiah wrote so many sad things that we have a word named after him, and when anything is surcharged with grief and complaint, we call it a jeremiad. But in my text Jeremiah, as by a sudden jolt, wakens us to a thankful spirit. Our blessings are so much more numerous than our deserts that he is surprised that anybody should ever find fault. Having life, and with it a thousand blessings, it ought to hush into perpetual silence everything like criticism of the dealings of God. "Wherefore doth a living man complain?' There are three prescriptions by which I believe that our individual and national finances may be cured of their present depression. Tho first is cheerful conversation and behavior. I have noticed that the people who are most vociferous against the day in which wo live are those who are in comfortable circumstances. I have made inquiry of those persons who are violent in their jeremiads against these times, and I have asked them, "Now, after all, are you not making a living?" After some hesitation and coughing and clearing their throat three or four times, they say stammeringly, -'Y-e-s." So that with a great multitude of people it is not a question of getting a livelihood, but they are dissatisfied because they cannot make as much money as they would like to make. They have only two thousand dollars in the bank.where they would like to have four thousand. They can clear in a year only five thousand dollars, when they would like to clear ten thousand, or things come out just even. Or, in their trade they get three dollars a day when they wish they could make four or five. "Oh!" says some one, "are you not aware of the fact that there is a great population out of employment, and there are hundreds of good families of this country who are at their wits' end, not knowing which way to turn?" Yes, I know it better than any man in private life can know that sad fact, for it comes constantly to my eye and ear. But who is responsible for this state of things? Much of that responsibility I put upon men in comfortable circumstances, who, by an everlasting growling, keep public confidence depressed and new enterprises from starting out and new houses from being built. You know very well that one despondent man can talk fifty men into despondency, while one cheerful physician can wake up into exhilaration a whole asylum of hypochondriacs. It is no kindness to the poor or the unemployed for you to join in this deploration. If you have not the wit and the common sense to think of something cheerful to say, then keep silent. There is no man that can be in-dependent of depressed conversation. The medical journals are ever illustrating it. I was reading of five men who resolved that they would make an experiment and see what they could do in the way of depressing a stout, healthy man, and they resolved to meet him at different points in his journey; and as he stepped out from his house in the morning in robust health, one of the five men met him and said, "Why, you look very sick today. What is the matter?" He said, "I am in excellent health; there is nothing the matter." But passing down the street, he began to examine his symptoms, and the second of the five men met him and said, "Why, how bad you do look." "Well," he replied, "I don't feel very well." After a while the third man met him, and the fourth man met him, and the fifth man came up and said, "Why, you look as if you had had the typhoid fever for six weeks. What is the matter with you?" And the man against whom the stratagem had been laid went home and died. And if you meet a man with perpetual talk about hard times, and bankruptcy and dreadful winters that are to come, you break down his courage. A few autumns ago, as the winter was coming on, people said, "We shall have a terrible winter. The poor will be frozen out this winter." There was something in the large store of acorns that the squirrels had gathered, and something in the phases of the moon, and something in other portends.that made you certain we were going to have a hard winter. Winter came. It was the mildest one within my memory and within yours. All that winter long I do not think there was an icicle that bung through the day from the eaves of the house. So you prophesied falsely. Last winter was coming, and the people said, "We shall have unparalleled suffering among the poor. It will be a dreadful winter." Sure enough it ,was a cold winter; but there was more large hearted charities than ever before poured out on the country; better provision made for the poor, so that there have been scores of winters when the poor had a harder time than they did last winter. Weather prophets say we will have frosts this summer which will kill the harvests. Now, let me tell you, you have lied twice about the weather, and I believe you are lying this time, .' ' The secojua prescription for the alle* yiation of financial distresses is proper Christian investment, God demands of every individual,state, and nation, a certain, proportion of their income. We are parsimonious! We keep back from God that which belongs to him, and when we keep back anything from God he takes what we keep back, and he taltes more. He takes It by. storm, by sickness, by bankruptcy, by any one of the ten thousand ways which he can employ. The reason many of you are cramped In business is because you have never learned the lesson of Christian generosity. You employ an agent. You give him a reasonable salary; and, lo! you find out that he is appropriating your funds besides the salary. What do you do? Discharge him. Well, we are God's agents. He puts in our hands certain moneys. Part are to be ours. Part are to be his. Suppose we take all, what then? He will discharge us; he will turn us over to financial disasters, ; ahd take -the trust away from us. The reason that great multitudes are not prospered in business is simply because they have been withholding from God that which belongs to him. The rule is, give, and you will receive. Administer liberally, and you shall have more to administer. I am in full sympathy with the man Who was to be baptized by immersion, and some one said, "You had better leave your pocket book out, it will get wet." "No," said he, "I want to go down under 'the wave with everything. I want to consecrate my property and all to God." And so he was baptized. What we want in this country is more baptized pocketbooks. I had a relative whose business seemed to be falling. Here a loss, and there a loss, and everything was bothering, perplexing and annoying him. He sat down one day and said, "God must have a controversy with me about something. I believe I haven't given enough to the cause of Christ." And there and then he took out his check book and wrote a large check for a missionary society. He told me, "That was the turning point in my business. Ever since then I have been prosperous. Prom that day, aye, from that very hour, I saw the change." And, sure enough, he went on, and gathered a fortune. Tho only safe investment that a man can make in this world is in tho cause of Christ. If a man give, from a superabundance, God may or he may not respond with a blessing; but if a man give until he feels it, if a man give until it fetches the blood, if a man give until his selfishness cringes and twi&ts and cowers under it he will get not only spiritual profit, but he will get paid back in hard cash or in convertible securities. We often see men who are tight fisted who seem to get along with their investments very profitably, notwithstanding all their parsimony. But wait. Suddenly in that man's history everything goes wrong. His health falls, or his reason is dethroned, or a domestic curse smites him, or a midnight shadow of some kind drops upon his soul and upon his business. What is the matter? God is punishing him for his small heartedness. He tried to cheat God and God worsted him. So that one of the recipes for the cure of individual and national finances is more generosity; Where you bestowed one dollar on the cause of Christ, give two. God loves to be trusted, and he is very apt to trust back again. He says: "That man knows how to handle money; he shall have more money to handle." And very soon the property that was on the market for a great while gets a purchaser, and the 'bond that was not worth more than. fifty cents on a dollar goes to par, and the opening of a new street doubles the value of his house, or in any way of a million God blesses him. People quote as a joke what is a divine promise: "Cast thy bread upon the waters, and it will return to thee after many days." What did God mean by that? There is an illusion there. In Egypt, when they sow the corn, it is at a time when the Nile is overflowing its banks and they sow the seed corn on tho waters, and as the Nile begins to recede this seed corn strikes in the earth and comes up a harvest and that is the allusion. It seems as if they are throwing the corn away on the waters, but after a while they gather it up in a harvest. Now says God in his, word: "Cast thy bread upon the waters, and it shall come back to thee after many days," It may seem to you that you. are throwing it away on charities; but it will yield a harvest of green and gold —a harvest on earth and a harvest in heaven. If men could appreciate that and act on that, we would have no more trouble about individual or national finances Prescription the third, for the cure of all ouf individual and national financial distresses; a great spiritual awakening, it is no more theory. The merchants of this country were positively demented with thp monetary excitement in 1857. There never before nor since has been such a state of financial depression as there was at that time. A revival came, and five hundred thousand people were born into the kingdom of God. What came after the revival? The grandest financial prosperity we have ever had in this country. The finest fortunes, the largest fortunes in the United States, have been made since 1857.'"Well," you say, "what has spiritual improvement and revival to do with monetary improvement and revival?" Much to do. The religion of Jesus Christ has a direct tendency to make men honest and sober and truth-telling, and are not honesty and sobriety and truth-telling auxiliaries of material prosperity? If we could have an awakening in this country as in the days of Jonathan Edwards of Northampton, as in the days of Dr. Flndley of Basking Ridge, as in the days of Dr. Griffin of Boston, the whole land would rouse to a higher moral tone, and with that moral tone the honeat business enterprise of the country would come up. You say a great awakening has an influence upon the future world. I tell you It has a direct Influence upon the financial welfare of this world. The religion of The Daily Task. We are not apt enough to think o! our daily work as the Good Shepherd's pasture field. AVe are too apt to givi heed to a miserable distinction between the sacred and secular and to seek t( get out from what we call the seculai into What wo call the sacred, that w( may find spiritual pasture fields * * * This is the sacred service; this is God's work; praying, commuri' ing, preaching, buying, selling, brick, laying, doing whatsoever things ar< true, honest, just, pure, lovely, of good report, which God's providence has trust into your hand to do—doing them for God's sake and in His name, the shining motive for them God's glory. * * * The daily toil is a real spiritual pasture field; and the best of herbage we will find in it, if we will have it so, if we will take into it the motive of pleasing God, and so of doing in it our very' best. How the spiritual life may nobly grow in this pasture field of daily duty done from a divine impulse!— Way land Hoyt, D. D. Children and Church Going, The fault may lie in some cases with the minister, but much more often the fault is with the fathers and 'mothers. In the matter of church attendance the parents and the pastor must combine. The parents should require and expect the children to accompany them to God's house as much as to sit at their table for their daily food in their own houses. The pastor should endeavor to attract the young to church by making his sermons simple in language, earnest in delivery and interesting with illustrations. Very few sermons are fit to be preached at all which are utterly beyond the comprehension of an average boy 10 years old. Grown people, in turn, relish fresh, vivid, simple, earnest, practical preaching as much a?' their children do.—Theodore L, Cuyler. ' MAtTERS OF INTEREST AGRICULTURISTS. Christ Is no foe to successful business; | ffl t tjlf A 1VTT4 it Is Us beat friend. And if there rAJClDl Alll/ should come a great awakening (n this country, and all the banks and Insur ance Companies and stores and office and shops should close up for tw< weeks, and do nothing bilt attend to the public worship of Almighty Go after such a spiritual vacation the land would wake up to such financial pros perlty as we have never dreamed of Godliness Is profitable for the life tha now Is as well as for that which Is to come. But, tny friends, do not ^put so much emphasis on worldly success as to let your eternal affairs go at .loose finds. I have nothing to say agaihs money. The more money you get too better, if it comes honestly and goei usefully. For the lack of it, sickness dies without medicine, and hunger finds its coffin in an empty bread-tray and nakedness shivers for clothes atu fire. All this canting tirade against money as though it had no practica: use, when I hear a man indulge in it. it makes me think the best heaven for him would be an everlasting poorhouse! No, there is a practical use in money; but while we admit that, we must also admit that it cannot satisfy the soul, that it cannot pay for our ferriage across the Jordan of death, that it cannot unlock the gate of heaven for our immortal soul. Yet there are men who act as though packs of bonds and mortgages could be traded off for a mansion in heaven, and as though gold were; a legal tender in that land v/here it is so common that they make pavements out of it. Salvation by Christ is the only salvation. Treasures in heaven aro the only Incorruptible treasures. Have you ever ciphered out that sum in loss and gain, "What shall it profit a man if he gain the whole world and lose his soul?" You may wear fine apparel now, but the winds of death will flutter It like rags. Home- ppun and a threadbare coat have sometimes been the shadow of robes white in the blood of the Lamb. All the mines of Australia and Brazil, strung in one carcanet, are not worth to you as much as the pearl of great price. You remember, I suppose, some years ago, the shipwreck of the Central America? A storm came on that vessel. The surges tramped the deck and swept down through the hatches, and there went up a hundred-voiced death shriek. The fonm on the Jaw' of the wave. The pitching of the steamer, as though it would leap a mountain. The glare of the signal rockets. The long cough of the steam-pipes. The hiss of extinguished furnaces. The walking of God on the wave. 0, it was a stupendous spectacle. So, there are men who go on in life —a fine voyage they are making out of it. All is well, till some euroclydon of business disaster comes upon them, and they go down. The bottom of this commercial sea is strewn With the shattered hulks. But, because your property goes, shall your soul go? O, no! There is coming a more stupendous shipwreck after a while. This world—God launched it 6,000 years ago, and it is sailing on; but one day it will stagger at the cry of "fire!" and the timbers of the rocks will burn, and the mountains flame like masts and the clouds like sails in the judgment hurricane. God will take a good many off tho deck, and others out of the berths, where they are now sleeping in Jesus. How many shall go down? No one will know until it is announced in heaven one day; "Shipwreck of a world! So many millions saved! So many millions drowned!" Because your fortunes go, because your house goes, because all your earthly possessions go, do not let your soul go! May the Lord Almighty, through the blood of the everlasting covenant, save your souls. TO gome-trp-lo-Date Hints About t'ultlva tlon of the Soil nnd Yields Thereof— Horticulture; • Viticulture and Florl culture. HE best mixture o grass seeds depeudi upon soil and cli mate and the farm ers 1 needs, says Mirror and Farmer More regard shouli also be paid to the succession o blooming of the different varletie that may be sown though this point was long since emphasized by Flint. Mr. F. Lamson Scribner, chief of the grass division of the department of agriculture and one of the best experts on grasses, in one of his admirable addresses made these very practical points: The best wild or native hay grasses are blue joint fowl meadow grass, a species of Gly- cerla, and one of the Muhlenberglas or "drop seeds." These are valuable in the order named, and often afford in our low-lying meadows a large bulk of native hay of excellent quality. Like other species of grasses, they respond readily to good treatment. Timothy, meadow fescue, orchard grass, rye grass and redtop are the chief and best known of the cultivated or so- called "tame" grasses for the production of hay. In the markets timothy Is the recognized standard by which the value of other grasses Is estimated. It is the farmers' gold coin, although it does not appear to me to be equal in some respects to other varieties. Its clean appearance, even growth, fair productiveness, and easy propagation make It a favorite grass. The presence of meadow fescue indicates a good soil, and upon well-drained clayey land it is one of the best grasses we can cultivate; it is alike good for hay and pasturage. Where tho soil is moist, but deep and strong, the large fescue (Fes- tuca arundinacea) may be cultivated. It is one of the most productive of hay grasses. Almost equally productive on soils suitable to It Is orchard grass, and by many of our farmers this is regarded as equal if not superior to timothy. It has a serious fault, however, jf growing in bunches or tussocks. It is not a turf former, and when culti- rated the seed should be sown thickly, and it is a good plan to add some other species as a filler. This objectionable habit of orchard grass may be overcome in a measure by heavily rolling the fields In early spring. Were it not for this tussock-forming habit, orchard grass would make one of the best of grasses for pastures, because o£ the early production of tender leaves. Rye grass, so popular in England, has never come into much favor here, although It is usually recommended as an ingredient for mixtures designed for permanent pasture. On very rich soils, where the ground is fairly moist and the atmosphere humid, its productiveness is very large. It will make a fair turf if well cared for, and may be used alone for lawns, but not in mixtures. Red top is one of the finest and best of our hay grasses, especially for low meadows, but Is less produc- than other sorts. The requlre- tive Jn a, home for sandwich men in London tliere are said to be several university graduates and medical men, and a Scotchman who ran through. £50,000 In three years, nients of a good hay grass are productiveness, hardiness and adaptability to the soil. It must also be nutritious, rich In flesh-forming elements, and possessing little fiber, and must be palatable to stock. Our pasture grasses are more numerous than those which yield us hay. The most important kinds are meadow foxtail, Kentucky bluegrass, English bluegrass (Poa compressa), certain varieties of redtop and species 01 fescue, quite productive, and by many is very highly esteemed! It is recommended in all mixtures compounded for the production of con- :inuous herbage through the season. Kentucky bluegrass is a good turf lormer and a good pasture grass where the land is rich, but does best upon strongly calcareous or limy soils. It a the grass which has made the pastures of portions of Kentucky and Tennessee so justly famous. English bluegrass Is a better pasture grass for Ight sandy soil than Kentucky bluegrass. It will grow on soils so thin and poor that little else will grow. On ;ood land its productiveness is scarce- y inferior to that of Kentucky blue- ;rass, and it is equally tender and nutritious. It makes a very firm sod, and withstands the tramping of stock bet- er than many other kinds. The cul- ivation of this grass in certain por- ions of Virginia has changed poverty- stricken districts to areas of wealth and prosperity. This has been ef- 'ected by the cultivation of this Engish bluegrass and the raising of dairy itock. Lowland pastures should al- vays contain redtop in some of its ar(eties. It makes the cleanest, ilcest looking and sweetest turf of any jrass I know. The flue-leafed varle- ies should be selected for cultivation n pastures. Meadow fescue is a valuable pasture grass, as already intimated, where the soil is good; and on andy soils red fescue is perhaps one of the best species we can cultivate, associating with it English bluegrass.' ISaumbach Strawberry Growing 1 . J. S. Stiekney contributes to the organ of the Wisconsin Horticultural Society the following paper: The very successful strawberry growing of Mr. Wm. von Baumbach has caused much inquiry as to his methods. Being his near neighbor and passing his plantatfcn almost daily, I fim quite familiar with his methods, and with his consent will state a few of my impressions. I think the keynote to all his success is persistent, thorough painstaking, to do everything }u season aad in tie best ppsslble man,. ner. His soil is only fairly good, such as may be found on almost any.quar- ter-section of average farm land—stiff clay subsoil, surface rather a heavy clay loam, originally covered with a heavy growth of Oak and Maple; a strong soil but not easy to manage. He uses manure from the city stables freely, but not excessively, twenty to twenty-five loads per acre once in three years. For these many years, more than three-fourths of all his planting has been six rows of Crescent to three rows of Wilson, and his faith today is stronger in these than any other; still ho tries most of the newer kinds. Perhaps the most noticeable points of his management are: 1st, early and careful planting on thoroughly prepared ground. 2d, frequent, almost constant, cultivation. Light, fine-toothed cultivators are run after every rain, and about every seven days whether it rains or not, with very frequent hoeing and weeding, until new runners cover the row space; later, the runners are clipped to a line by a cultivator with an axle and two revolving discs in front. All weeds die young. 3d, his treatment of pickers. He employs only those of such age and responsibility as he can trust with a sixteen quart case to pick and fill, with the bottom course of as good quality and as well filled as the top. Every family represented by these pickers receives two quarts of berries each day for their own use, in addition to their regular pay. He is never troubled with strikes. 4th, he secures "top" prices and quick sales by filling every box heaping full. Nearly all his sales are to one commission house and it is very common in early morning to see five or ten retail grocer wagons standing before that store waiting for his team to arrive. Half of his load, or more, does not reach the sidewalk, but goes directly to those wagons. He is annoyed by other growers and dealers gathering his empty crates and refilling them, so much so that he now does not stencil them. All these things are easy. Let us each try them one season. Perhaps we shall like them. Mr. von Baumbach is planning to keep debit and credit the coming season and, as far as practicable, a comparative tally with some of the later kinds, the result of which he will give us at the close of the season. Scrub Cow Soph'gtry. A correspondent in the Rural New Yorker makes a plea for what he calls the scrub cow by reason of the fact that she is a better mill for the consumption of roughage, and as at the present prices of butter it does not pay to feed grain. This sounds very nice, and doubtless there are many who suppose that it is true; but such reasoning is at the most somewhat superficial. In the first place what is "roughage?" Webster does not recognize the word, so we may assume that it means the hay and coarse fodders on the farm. Now in the first place, we admit that a native cow may turn more of mouldy or weedy hay into butter than will a thoroughbred that has for gerenations been used to good feed. But if any man will deliberately pursue that line of dairy farming that calls for the raising of weedy hay, and the improper curing of good hay, then we' may say Ephraim is wedded to his idols, let him alone. We all sometimes raise weedy hay, and at times get some of it improperly cured, but do not let us deliberately plan for such work. And even admitting that every year we must ;et some of our hay caught in too many rains there is no cow on earth, be she scrub or thoroughbrd, that will make tho best butter out of poor feed. Let us see as to feeding grain or hay: A ton of timothy hay and a ton of bran :ontaiu as follows, in each 100 pounds: Protein. C-kydrates. Fat. Timothy hay .. 3.0 43.9 1.2 Bran 12.6 49.1 2.9 And while the bran contains four times as much protein or milk-making food, twice as much fat and slightly more carbohydrates as the hay, yet tho price of the two Is nearly the same. Does this look as if it did not pay to feed grain to cows? This is an extreme case to be sure, as timothy is the highest priced hay we have, yet it is often the case that food nutrients may be purchased cheaper in the form of grain than in hay or coarse fodder. The fact of the matter is that tho lower the price of butter the more need of the best cow, and the best feed wherewith to feed her. Clean the Separator. G. B. Lawson remarks in the Produce Review that all kinds of separators should be taken apart and cleaned out; .he lower boxes and spindles and ball bearings should be wiped off clean, and f they have begun to get worn and •ough they should be placed with new ones. Where the separators are run four or five hours every day, they should je cleaned out every two weeks or of- ener. By this the boxes will • never leat, and your separators will run more smoothly and do closer skimming. You annot expect to do close skimming un- ess the separators run smoothly and at high rate of speed, and keeping the bearings clean and well supplied with •11 is the main point in running them n-operly. I find that the wide web belts last longer than tho round rope eparator belts. I have had the rope belts break and give out in less than a veek; and I have heard of two rope belts being broken in one day. The vide web belt has run on the separators here for the last six months, and' t looks as if it might last as much' onger. , Belgian Commune.—The Commune, )f Herzele, In Belgium, has 1,150 in- ; labitants and an area of arable land! of 23,000 acres, owned or rented by 1,328 cultivators.
