Ananias flrst lied about it and dropped down dead. Then Sappbira lied about it, and sbe dropped down dead- Tbe two fatalities are a warning to all ages of tbe danger of sacrificing tbe truth. There are thousands of ways of telling s. He. A man's whole life may t-e a falsehood and yet never with bis lips may he falsify once. There is a way of uttering falsehood by look, by manner, as well as by lip. There are persons who are guilty of dishonesty of speech and then afterward say "may be," calling it a white lie, when no lie is that color. Tbe whitest lie ever told was as black as perdition. There are those *o given to dishonesty of speech that they do not know when they are lying. With some it IB an acquired sin, and with others it is a natural Infirmity. There are those whom you will recognize as born liars. Their whole life, from cradle to grave, is filled up with vice of speech. Misrepresentation and prevarication are as natural to them as the infantile diseases, and are a sort of moral croup and spiritual Kcgriatlna. Then there are those who in after life have opportunities of developing this evil, and they go from deception to deception, and from class to c!ae«, until they are regularly graduated liars. At times the air in our cities i* filled with falsehood, and lies clUHter around the mechanic's hammer, blossom on the merchant's yardstick, and sometimes «it on the door of churches. They are called by some fabrication, and they are called by some Action. You might call them subterfuge or deceit, or romance, or fable, or misrepresentation, or delusion; but as 1 know nothing to be gained by covering up a God-defying sin with a lexicographer's blanket, I nball call them in plainest vernacular, HCB. They may be divided into agricultural, commercial, mechanical, social and ecclesiasti- al. First of all, I speak of agricultural falsehoods. There is something in the presence of natural objects that has a tendency to make one pure. The trees never issue false stock. The wheat fields are always honest. Rye and oats never move out in tbe night, not paying for the place they occupy. Corn- Bhocks never make false assignment. Mountain brooks are always current. The gold of the wheat fields in never counterfeit, But while the tendency of agricultural life is to make one honest, honesty IH not the characteristic of all who come to the city markets from tbe country districts. You hear the creaking of tbe dishonest farm wagon in almost every street of our great cities—a farm wagon '.n which there is not one honest spoke. or one truthful rivet, from tongue to tail-board. Again and again has domestic economy in our great cities foundered on the farmer's firkin. When New York and Washington tit down and weep over their sins, let Wentcbeuter county and tbe neighborhoods around this capita) alt down and weep over theirs. The tendency In all rural districts is to suppose tbat sins and transgressions duster in our great cltlen; but citizens and merchants long ago learned that It Is not safe to calculate from the character of the apples on the top of tbe farmer's barrel what is the character of the apples all the way down toward the bottom. Many of our citizens and merchants have learned that it is always safe to see tbe farmer measure the barrel of beets. Milk cans are not always honest. There are those, who in country life, seem to „„,,,* -„ «»,„ „},.,..;««• -.slumber aeain and again by . -• - — — «-— — - - t >•» ^-- — ceeds in the charity j ^ ^ ^^.^^ ^^ him . be so small you can put it «* TOUT vest j porce!a!n . tut the sure-enougb eggs.and eeif np on elbow and crying out into tbe darkness, "Who is there T' There are large fortunes upon •srbicb God's favor comes down, and it is i'JSt as honest and just as Christian to be affluent as it is to be poor. ID many a think they have a right to overreach grain dealers and merchants of all utyies. They think It Is more honorable to raise corn than to deal in corn, Tbe producer sometimes practically says to tbe merchant, "You get your 'money easily, anyhow." Does he get it easily? While the farmer sleeps.and tie may go to sleep, conscious of the tbat bis corn and rye are all the time progressing and adding to his fortune or bis livelihood, the merchant tries to sleep, while conscious of the fact tbat at that moment the ship ?nay be driving on the rock, or a wave •weeping over the hurricane deck spoiling his goods, or the speculators roay be plotting a monetary revolution, or the burglars may be at that moment at 'his money safe, or the flre may hav« kindled on the very block where his store stands.

And there are thousands and tens of thousands t-C merchants who, from tbe nrft day they Bold a yard of clotb, or firkin of butter, have maintained their integrity. They were born honest, they will live honest, and they -\ill die honest. But you and I know that there are In commercial life those who are guilty of great dishonesties of speech. A merchant says, "I am selling these goods at less cost." la he getting for those goorts a price inferior to that which be paid for then? Then be has fcpoke.i tbe truth. Ls be getting more? The.i be lies. A mercbi.i: Ears: "I paid $25 for this article." Is tbal the price he paid for it? All right. But suppose he paid for it $20 instead of 525? Then he lies. JJ:u there are just as man;' falsehoods before the counter as mere are behind the counter. A customer comes in and asks: "How much is this article?" "It is five dollars." "I can get that for four somewhere else." Can he get it for four somewhere olfie, or did he say that just for the purpose of getting it cheap by depreciating the value of the goods? If so, he lied. There are just as many falsehoods before tbe counter as there are behind tbe counter. * * * Social life is struck through witb insincerity. They apologize for tbe fact tbat the furnace is out; they have not had any fire '.n it all winter. They apologize for the fare on their table; they never live any better. They decry their most luxuriant entertainment to win a shower of approval from you. They point at a picture on the wall as a work of one of the old masters. They Bay it IH an heirloom in the family. It hung on the wall of a castle. A duke gave It to their grandfather. People that will lie about nothing else will He about a picture. On small income •we want the world to believe we are affluent, and society today is struck through with cheat and counterfeit and sham. How few people are natural! Frigidity sails around, iceberg grinding against iceberg. You must not laugh outright; that Is vulgar. You 1 must smile. You must not dash quickly across the room; that Is vulgar. You must glide. Much of society is a round of bows, and grins and grimaces and oh's and ah's and he, he's and simperings and namby-pambyism, a whole world ot which Is not worth one good honest round of laughter. From such a hollow scene the tortured guest retires at the close ot the evening, assuring the host that he has enjoyed himself. Society : s become so contorted and deformed in this respect that a mountain cabin where the rustles gather at a quilting or an apple-paring, has In It more good cheer than all the frescoed refrigerators of the metropolis. I-pass on to speak of ecclesiastical lies, those-which are told for the advancement or retarding of a churcb 01 i.ect. It Is hardly worth your while to ask an extreme Calvlnlst what an Armlnian believes. He will tell you tbat an Armlnian believes that man can save himself. An Arminian believes no such thing, it is hardly worth your while to ask an extreme Armlnian what a Calvinlst believes. He will tel you that a Calvlnlst believes that God made some men just to damn them. A Calvlnlst believes no such thing. It is hardly worth your while to ask a Pe do-Bapt!st what a Baptist believes. Hi will tell you a Baptist believes tha Immersion Is necessary for salvation. A Baptist does not believe any such thing. It is hardly worth your while to ask a man, who very much hates Presbyterians, what a Presbyterian believes. He will tell you that a Presbyterian believes tbat there -are Infants in hell a span long, and that very phraseology has come down from generation to generation In the Christian church. There never waq a Presbyterian who believed tbat. "Oh," you say, "I beard some Presbyterian minister twenty years ago say so." You did not. Tbere never was a man who believed that, there never will be a man who will believe that. And yet, from boyhood, I have heard that particular slander against a Christian church going pocket, but the sin is as big as the pyramids, and the echo of your dishonor will reverberate through the mountains of eternity. There is no i such thing as a small sin. They are j all vast and stupendous, because they | will ail have to come under inspection I in tbe Day of Judgment. You may boast yourself of having made a fine bargain—a sharp bargain.

It may seem to the world a sharp bargain, but the recording angel wrote down In the ponderous tones of eternity, "Mr. So-and-so, doing business on Pennsylvania Avenue, or Broadway, or Chestnut Street, or State Street, told one lie." May God extirpate trom society all the ecclesiastical lies, and all tbe social lies, and all the mechanical lies, and all tbe commercial lies, and all tbe agricultural lies, and make every man to speak the truth o{ his neighbor. My friends, let us make our life correspond to what we are. Let us banish all deception from our behavior. Let us remember that the time comes when God will demonstrate before an assembled universe just what we are. The secret.will come out. We may hide it while we live, but we cannot hide it when we die. To many life is a masquerade ball. As at such entertainment gentlemen and ladies appear in garb of kings or queens, or mountain bandits, or clowns, and then at the close of the dance put off their disguise, so many all through life are in mask. The masquerade ball goes on, and gemmed hand clasps gemmed hand, and dancing feet respond to dancing feet, and gleaming brow bends to gleaming brow, and the masquerade Ssll goes bravely on. But after a while languor comes and blurs the ight. Lights lower. Floor hollow with sepulchral echo. Music saddens nto a wail. Lights lower. Now the masquerade is hardly seen. The fra- rance is exchanged for the sickening odor of garlands that have lain a long while in the damp of sepulchres. Lights ower. Mists fill the room. The scarf drops from the shoulder of beauty, a shroud. Lignts lower. Torn leaves and withered garlands now hardly cover up the ulcered feet. Stench of lamp- wicks almost quenched. Choking dampness.

Lights out. her see where she is and become miliar with the surroundings, and sne seldom fails to get off and eat and go back to her nest without further trouble. Treat them kindly and they will appreciate it by behaving nicely. I have set them and moved them three miles, on the nest, and they did well. As a general rule early pullets will give you more eggs during the winter, but old hens will get broody first ana make the best mothers. It is better to set three or more hens at the same time, and when the eggs have been sat upon ten days, examine them between the eye and a strong light, or take the lamp after dark. If the egg looks clear it will not hatch. If it looks dark, with the air sack large it contains the objection to winter dairying has ^- ^ requires t oo constant work, the sowing of special succulent crops in the spring and summer, the gathering of them in the fall, and the care of the milk and butter and their sale in the winter, making twelve months of work. It is much easier to work seven or eight months in the summer method of dairying and have a few months of good, solid rest But who can fairly expect to thrive on working part of the time during the year? Because winter dairying makes it possible to put in twelve months ol solid paying work instead of eight is one of the reasons why it should pay a greater profit. Few can hope to get as much profit out of eight months work as out of twelve. It has been figured out that milk and butter in the winter are worth on the average about embryo of a chick. After the fertile j 5 0 per cent more than in the summer egg? have been separated from the ' Added to that is the asserted fact that ' clear ones they will probably go under two or more of the hens which will bring out full broods, and you will have one hen that can be given fresh eggs. If the hen is sitting off the ground in a dry place, sprinkle the eggs with tepid water a few times the week before hatching, and you will not find BO many chicks dead in the shell. When she is through hatching let her remain on the warm nest with her brood for twenty-four hours. The chicks will not eat before that time, and they are gaining strength all the time. Then feed them light, nutritious food, always cooked. Hard boiled eggs and oat meal or bread crumbs rubbed up together are excellent, coarse corn meal mixed with sweet milk and baked is good. Feed often and a little at a time, with a good drink of sweet milk two or threo times a day, but never let it stand by them. When a month old they can be given cracked corn or the total milk production for the year is often 30 per cent more, have a considerable advance.

A great deal of intelligent work is being done for the east side, eays a writer ia Harper's Weekly. New perks have been opened; societies whose object b to teach a better mode of living have been organized: play grounds are soon, to be opered, and now, after a good deal of time spent in preparation, one have silos, or at ol y^ seTera i recreation piers planned to provide their j^ be€n erected and thrown open to the public. To one used to seeing tbe tremendous jams of heavy trucks In front of tbe decks of West street it h an odd sight to see the entrance to a New York pier almost blockaded by empty baby carriages. There Is no room for perambulators on tbe new recreation pier, and the mothers who bring them leave them at the entrance. The new pier is substantially built, two-story, fireproof structure, iron stairways lead from tbe street to the recreation floor. On a hot afternoon these are crowded; at night they aro Jammed. A band plays almost every night and several afternoons during the week. Any air faster than "Old Hundred" sets the youngsters dancing, a very slight provocation starts them all singing, and every boy whistles when tbe band plays "Sweet Rosle O'Grady." Often the singing, shouting and whistling are so deafening tbat one cannot hear the band half tbe length of tbe pier, but that does not disturb anyone. There are a couple of stands on the pier where youngsters with strong stomachs and a few pennies may make themselves happy with- candy or "open face" pies. Children witb weak stomachs and three pennies may indulge In sterilized milk. Several uniformed employes of the dock department and two or three policemen keep order on the .floor, and two matrons in black, with starchy white aprons, collars and cuSs, look after the comfort of the women and babies. To a sympathetic observer of the great tenement district this recreation pier would seem to be one of tbe most practical and useful means of relief yet devised for the preservation of infant life and adult hope among the poor. Let us have as many more of them as possible. and you The rea GROWING OLD. In- Our Friends and Our Kuemles--Of tcrest to the I'ublh- at Larce. Our enemies (when we are old)—and who is without them?—no longer annoy us. Indeed, they have ceased reviling; to them we,are as dead men, "out of mind," to whom the proverb de mortuis applies, says the Nineteenth Century. And our friends are twice our friends. No one who is not "laid by" can understand the depths of human sympathy. Even our acquaintances become our friends, and the least soft-hearted of visitors murmurs to himself: "Poor soul!" or perhaps (with equal commiseration) "Poor devil!" What Is most curious is the interest, if we have In any way become known to the public at large, complete strangers take in our physical and mental condition. If prescriptions could cure us we should be in rude health Indeed. The materials are sometimes a little difficult to procure. I have seen a letter from New Zealand recommending an old gentleman suffering from rheumatic gout to bathe in whales. In that island whales, It seems, are occasionally thrown up on the seashore, when rheumatic patients hasten to He In them during the progress of their evisceration for purposes of commerce. The extreme rarity of whales upon the Thames embankment seems to have been unknown to the writer. Some correspondents give most excellent sanitary advice, but too late for its practical application. An aged poet, who had lost the use of his limbs, was exhorted by an admirer to dig, "even if it were but in his back garden," f^r an hour or two every morning before breakfast; all that was wanted, he was assured, for complete recovery, was "profuse perspiration followed by a healthy glow." wheat, but always that which is good; wheat is better and chcapar than screenings for chicks. It is a mistake to underfeed the growing chicks. They require more solid and varied food in proportion, while growing, than at any other period of their lives. Like any growing animal, they require plenty of good, wholesome food, supplied often and bountifully, to enable them to grow rapidly and develop properly. If you have the Asiatic fowls and have properly mated and cared for them, at two months old, you will have some in each brood large enough for broilers. Then as the "early bird gets the worm," you will receive the best prices for your early chicks. Another advantage is that they are off before the hot weather comes on and the poultry's pests begin to multiply by the million. In the hot summer comes the hard 'work to keep your breeding stock for the next year healthy and free from vermin, always remembering-that poor shelter, care and feed will in a few generations make scrubs of the finest thoroughbred stock. Thoroughbred scrubs are little better than native scrubs, and the farmer who raises Ulther will always be poor. Breeding son for this Increased flow of milk is found in the fact tbat during every summer there is a dry period when the pastures get very short and the grass very dry. During this time tbe cows are not generally fed on succulent fodder to keep up the flow of milk. The supply falls off, and, as all dairymen know, never gets back to its former abundant flow. The loss from this cause is very great, when we take into consideration the millions of cows in the country. By a proper course of feed the winter dairyman avoids this pitfall. If he feeds silage the prevention of any such falling off is easy. Even if he feeds other succulent feed with abundance of grain food the success is generally assured. He therefore avoids anything corresponding to the summer drouth, and keeps up the flow of milk from the time of the cow coming in fresh to the time of drying up previous to calving again. Some use the argument that if all rush into winter dairying there will be no profit in it for any one. That is a contingency that need not be guarded against. Winter dairying is too much like work for everyone to run into it. Most men care so much for ease that they will take the easiest route, whether it pays or not. Then there are a great many men that are beyond the reach of this propaganda, and they will never think of changing. Altogether, there is no danger that the number in this particular line will become so great that profits will drop to nil. A Plan That Failed.—Some years ago, says Hoard's Dairyman, we ran across the following terse bit of dairy experience, from a Wisconsin local paper: A' friend appeals to us to suggest something for the fly tormented milkers. It's no use, my veteran friend, we've tried it. Once, when a boy, we thought we would fix a frisky heifer, and so tied her tail to our boot strap.

Varying Components of Milk.—During tbe first five months of milking tbe salts in tbe milk are iu excess, ami tben progressively decrease to the eighth month, when tbey increase slightly; the casein and extractives diminish up to the second month, and then remain nearly constant, but from the tenth to the twenty-fourth month the casein declines; from the eighth to the tenth month the sugar increases, this body being In small proportion during the latter part of the ftrst month, and in the fifth and sixth and tenth and eleventh months the butter fails in proportion, progressively diminishing from the first to the eighth month, and then increasing slightly.
