The kingdom of God spoken of in the test is to foe a universal kingdom, and just as wide as that will be the realm sermonic, "'Go tbou and preach the kingdom of 3o«." We hear a great deal in these Jays about the coming man, and the ;oming woman, and the coming time. Some one ought to tell of the coming sermon. It :s a simple fact that everybody knows that most of the sermons of today do not reach the world. The >-ast majority of the people of our ?reat cities never enter church. The sermon of today carries along *i;h it Ihe deadwood of all ages. Hundreds of years ago it was decided what ^ .sermon ought to be, and it Is the attempt of many theological seminaries ind doctors of divinity to hew the modern pulpit utterances into the same vld-stylc proportions. Booksellers will tell you they dispose of a hundred histories, a hundred novels, a hundred poems, to one book of sermons. What IB the matter? Some say the age is the worst of ail ages. It is better. Some •say religion is wearing out, when it is wearing in. Some say there are so many who despise the Christian religion. I answer, there never was an nge when there were BO many Chris- Hans, many friends of Christianity as this age has—our age; as to others a hundred to one. What is tin- matter, then? It is simply because our sermon of today is not culled to the age. It is the canal boat in an age of locomotive and electric telegraph. The Eermon will have to be shaken oat of the old grooves or it will not be heard and It will not be read. Before the world is converted, the s( rmon will have to be co.-ivertcd. You might as v/ell go into a modern Sedan or Gettysburg with bows and arrows instead of rifles and bombshells and parks of artillery as to expect to conquer Ibis world for God by the old styles of sertnonology. Jonathan Edwards preached the rermons best adapted to the age in which he lived, but if ihoso sermons were preached now they would divide an audience into two classes; those sound asleep an:! those wanting to go home. But there is a coming sermon—who will preach it I have no idea; in what part of the earth it will be born I have no Idea; in which denomination of Christians it will be delivered, 1 can not guess. That coming sermon maybe born in the country meeting hou.ic or on the banks of tlie St. Lawrence, or 'che Oregon, or the Ohio, or the Tom- bigbee. or the Alabama. The person who may deliver it may this moment He in a cradle under the shadow of the Sierra Nevadas, or in a New England farmhouse, or amid the rice fields ol Southern savannas. Or this moment there may be some young vnan in some of our theological seminaries, in the Junior, or middle, or senior class, shaping that weapon of power. Or there may be coming some new baptisms o the Holy Ghost on the churches, HO that some of us who now stand in the watch towers of Zlon, waking to the realization of our present Inefficiency, may preach it ourselves. That coming sermon may not be twenty years off. And let us pray God that Its arrival may be hastened, while I announce to you what I tbink will be the ebief char• 'acterlsties of that sermon when it does arrive; and 1 want to make the remarks appropriate and suggestive to all classes of Christian workers. First of all, I remark that the coming sermon will be full of a living Christ, in contradistinction to didactic technicalities. A sermon may be full of Christ, though hardly mentionhu:; his name, and a sermon may be empty of Christ while every sentence is repo- titioua of his titles. The world wants a living Christ, not a Christ standing at the head oC a formal system of theology, but a Christ who means pardon and sympathy and condolence and brotherhood and life and heaven. A poor roan's Christ. An'over-worked man's Gtfrist. An Invalid's Christ. A fanner's 1 Christ. A merchant's Christ. An artisan's Christ. An every man's Christ: A symmetrical and finely worded system of theology is well enough lor with "Oh, sick the train, and lay on the grass only strength enough to say, what will become of my poor, mother now?" Vicarious suffering? The world is full of It. An engineer said to me on a locomotive in Dakota: "We men seem to be coming to better appreciation than we used to. Did you see that account the other day of an engineer, who to save his passengers, stuck io his place, and when he was found dead In the locomotive, which was found upside down, he was found still smiling, the hand on the air brake?" And as the engineer said it to me, he put his hand on the air brake to illustrate bis meaning, and I looked at him and thought, "You would be just as much of a hero in the same crisis." Paul preached until midnight, an-1 Eutychus got sound asleep, and fell out of a window and broke -his necu. Some would say, "Good for him." I would rather be sympathetic like Paul, and resuscitate him. That accident is often quoted now in religious circles as a warning against somnolence In church. It Is just as much a warning to ministers against prolixity. En- tycbus was wrong in his somnolence, but Paul made a mistake when he kept on until midnight. He ought to have stopped at 11 o'clock and there would have been no accident. If Paul might have gone on until too great length, let all those of us who are now preaching the gospel remember that there is a limit to religious discourse, or ought to be, and that in our time we havr? no apostolic power or miracles. Napoleon, in an address of seven minutes, thrilled his army and thrilled Europe. Christ's sermon on the mount —the model sermon—was less than eighteen minutes long at ordinary mode of delivery. It is not electricity scattered all over the sky that strikes, but electricity gathered into a thunderbolt and hurled; and it is not religious truths scattered over, spread out over a vast reach of time, but religious truth projected in compact form that flashes light upon the soul and rives Its indifference. When the coming sermon arrives ! .n this land and in the Christian church —the sermon which is to arouse the world and startle the nations and usher to every man's life, and !t will teach him to vote, ho* to bargain, how to plough, how to do any work he is called to, how to wield trowel and pen and pencil and yardstick and plane. And It will teach women how to preside over their households, and how to educate their children, and how to imitate Miriam and Esther tmd Vashtl, and Eunice, the mother of Timothy: and Mary, the mother of Christ: those women who on Northern and Southern battlefields were mistaken by the wounded for angels of mercy fresh from the throne of God. Do you exhort in prayer-meeting? Bo short and be spirited. Do you teach in Bible class? Though you have to study every night, be interesting, you accost people on the subject of religion in their homes or in public i places? Study adroitness and use com- j the Bureau mon sense. The most graceful, tne most beautiful thins on earth In the religion of Jesus Christ, ana if you awkwardly present it, it is defamation. We j for must do our work rapidly and we must do it effectively. Soon our time for work will be gone. A dying Christian took out his watch and gave it to a friend and pain: "Take that watch.

Too much of the dairying to-day is of the hit or miss kind. We are too apt to follow the tradition of our fathers, hardly keeping pace with mechanical improvement and mental growth. A great evolution has taken place within the memory of the youngest dairy.-nan. First, we remember when our dairy consisted of two or three cows. The milking was done in the yard, the milk set In pans in the cellar, the cream churned in the old stone churn, the butter worked with bowl and ladle, packed In jars and traded at the palian.

O my friend?, length. 0 when our watch has ticked away for more long ^ u 3 for the last moment, and our clock mens great numbers ol n the kingdom—it will be a brief sermon. Hear it, all theological students, 11 ye just entering upon religious vork, all ye men and women who in Sabbath schools and other departments are toiling for Christ and the salvation of immortals. Brevity! Brevity! But 1 remark also that thn coming sermon of which 1 speak will be n popular sermon. There are those in :hese times who speak of a popular sermon as though there must be something wrong about it. As these critics are dull themselves, the world gets the theological classes, but it has no business in a pulpit than have the technical phrases of an anatomist, or a. physician, in the sick room of a patient. The world wants help, immediate and world uplifting, and it will come through a sermon in which Christ shall walk right down into the immortal soul and take everlasting possession of it, filling it ae full of light us is the noonday firmament. That s^rmoa of the future will not deal with men In ,t.he threadbare illustrations of Jesus Clirlst. In that coming sermon there will be instances of vicarious sacrifice taken right out of everyday Ut<j, for there is not a day somebody Js not dying for others. As the physician, saving his diphtheric patient by 'sacrificing ills own life; as the ship- Lptain going down with his vessel wiiilo be Js getting his passengers iu- to t&e lifeboat; as the fireman, con flHBiftg in the burning building, while jb.e is taking ft child out of a fourth- window; as last summer impression that a sermon is good in proportion as it is stupid. Christ was the most popular preacher the world ever saw, and, considering the small number of '.he world's population, had the largest audiences ever gathered. He never preached anywhere without making a great sensation. People rushed out In the wilderness to hear him. reckless of their physical necessities. So great was their anxiety to hear Christ, that, taking no food with them, they would have fainted and starved had not Christ performed a miracle aud fed them. Why did so many people take the truth at Christ's hands? Because they all understood it He illustrated his subject by a hen and her chickens, by a bushel measure, by a handful o£ salt, by a bird's night ami by a lily's aroma. All the people know what lie meant, and they flocked to him. And when the coming .sermon of the Christian church appears, k will not he Princtjtonian, not Rnchesterian, not Andoverlan, not Middletonian, bu; Olivetlc—plain, practical, unique, earnest, comprehensive of all thf w«»s, wants, sins, sorrows and necessities of an auditory. \Ve hear a great deal of discussion ow all over the land about why people do not go to church. Some say it s because Christianity is dying out, and because people do not believe in he truth of God's word, and all that, They are false reasons. The roasofi to )ecause our sermons are not interest- ng and practical, and sympathetic and iielpful. Some one might as well tell :he whole truth ou tills subject, and «'.> [ will tell it. The sermon of the fu- ;ure _t) ie Gospel sermon to come forth aud shake the nations, and lift-people out of darkness—will be a popular sermon just for the simple reason that ; t will meet the woes and the wants anil the anxieties of the people. , There are In all our denominations ecclesiastical mummies, sitting around to frown upon the fresh young pulpits of America, to try to awe them down. ID cry out, "Tut, tut, tut! sensational!" They stand today, preaching in churches that hold u thousand people and there are a hundred persons present, and if they cannot have the world saved in their way it seems as if they do not want it saved at all. I do not know but the old way of making ministers of the Gospel IB better. A collegiate education ?>»" an apprenticeship under the care and home attention of some has struck for us the last hour, may It be found we did our work well, that we did It in the very best way; and whether we preached the Gospel in pulpits, or taught Sabbath classes, or administered to the sick as physicians, or bargained as merchants, or pleaded the'law as attorneys, or were busy as artisans, or as husbandmen, or as mechanics, or were like Martha called to give a meal to a hungry Christ, or like Hannah to make a coat for a prophet, or like Deborah to rouse the courage of some timid Barak in the Ixml's eon- fllct, we did our work in such a way that it will stand the test of the judgment. And in the long procession of the redeemed that march round the throne, may it be found there are many there brought to God through our instrumentality and in whose rescue we are exultant. But. O you uu- saved! wait not for that coming sermon. It may come after your obsequies. It may come after the stonecutter has chiseled our name on the slab lifty years before. Do not wait for a great steamer of the Cunard or White Star line to take you off th-2 wreck, but bail the first craft with however low a mast, and however small a bulk, and however poor a rudder, and however weak a captain. Bet- ter'a disabled schooner that comes up in time than a full-rigged brig that comes up after you have sunken. Instead of waiting for that coming sermon—it may be twenty, fifty years off —take this plain invitation of a man who, to have given you spiritual eyesight, would be glad to be called the spittle by the hand of Christ put on the eyes of a blind man. and who would consider the highest compliment of this service, if at the. close five hundred men should start from these doors saying, "Whether he be a sinner or no, 1 know not. This one thing I know, whereas 1 was blind, now I see." Swifter than shadows over the plain, quicker than birds in their autumnal fiight hastier than eagles to their prey, hie you to a sympathetic Christ. The orchestras of heaven have already strung their instruments to celebrate your rescue. And many were the voices around tho throne; Rejoice, for the Lord brings back hla own. worms ers bird from a which bad foot or speci- __ minute „=, lined "the" upper intestine; oth- «,» contained only large, fully developed worms in the lower intestine. One flock, the turkeys ot been dying for over a month andTfrom which thirty had been lost within a week, was badly infested, and no other cause for sickness could be discovered. One little turkey three or four weeks old from another flock had many small worms in the duodenum, while the lower intestine was almost completely fllled with a tangled bunch of worms, about fifty in number, several inches In length. This trouble is very prevalent in some flocks during the spring and summer, and especially in July and August among turkeys on land which has been overstocked with them for several years. Evidently the younger the turkeys receive the parasites the more they suffer The worms probably irritate the bowels, cause digestive derangement, diarrhea, weakness and death. A few worms may do a little harm, while a They Aro PICTURED POSTCARDS.

I'ostcards with representations o£ interesting local scenes luivc Icng been popular on the continent, with residents, and visitors readily fall into tho fashion. Ornamental postcards and envelopes are constantly used by correspondents, and postcard collecting abroad is quite as common iHi stamp collecting was In this country some time ago. The cards; are fastened in an album, especially made lor the purpose, or artistically arranged In groups on walls and tables.

There is certainly no more ready or pleasing way by which a friend can give his correspondent an idea of his surroundings. Many of the great publishers are now Issuing views of English cathedrals and other places of historic interest and not a few pretty landscapes. Some hotels, too, arc using cards with views calculated to in- vito customers. But people in this country generally use the plainest paper and postcards. On the continent the sales of these interesting little works of art are enormous, and it is stated an attempt to get one better will bo made by enterprising manufacturers there who contemplate reproducing works of tiae old masters in miniature. Firms in Condon who urc connected with German publishers say they sell a vast Dumber of these ornamental postcards abroad, and that their customers greatly value them. Great gifts niajje yaworthy natures great number may be fatal. Doubtless if they survive until the embryos have developed and have mostly passed out, they may recover. At certain seasons segments of these worms may be found early in the morning under the roosts among the droppings of the infected turkeys. Tapeworms cause more loss among Western sheep, it is said, than any other disease. As their name implies, they are Hat worms. They have a head and many joints, or segments, They have uo mouth, their nourishment—the digested contents of the intestines of their host—being received by absorption. The head attaches itself to the lining of the intestines by its suckers, or by curved, claw-like hooks. The segments are gradually formed next to the head and are pushed back by the formation of new ones, a«?.d. finally reach a position at the opposite extremity, or tail, when they mature, separate and pass away. When mature each segment is full of embryo tapeworms. These embryos, those of most species, are taken up by some animal, within which they pass the intermediate stage of development and :hen pass to their final host. Dr. Salmon thinks it will be found that earthworms, insects or snails are the intermediate host of these tapeworm embryos; that they probably are not able to develop without an intermediate host. The longer tapeworm-infected turkeys have been kept on a place and the greater the number annually grown the more thoroughly will apeworm eggs be sown upon the land. *.t you can keep the breeding turkeys free from the worms you may prevent them from, sowing the seeds of the tapeworm crop. Dosjrig them in winter and spring to free them would De an important preventive measure. They should be confined to an inclos- ure while being treateu and the ground and their droppings frequently disinfected to destroy the eggs that pass off. The little turkeys should be raised on land that turkeys or chickens have not run on for years, as well as given an occasional dose that will kill worms. Possibly wild birds and animals may infest such ground with the same embryos. Freshly powdered kousso is recommended as one of tho best worm medicines for human beings. The dose for a child of six years is one-fourth ounce, given in the morning ou an empty stomach. A previous evacuation of the bowels is recommended, as well as a brisk ca- A little later came the first cooling processes, the box or rectangular chu.'ii and wooden packages; soon creameries began springing up and the Cooley and Fairlamb cans and the skimming wagons came in vogue, then the separators, Babcock tests, and all the later improvements of to-day. But the management of the cows seems to have hardly kept pace. In our nineteenth century haste we have pushed ahead straining every nerve to get the most milk regardless of cost. Cows have grown old before their time by milking the year round, and by feeding more heavy feed than can be properly assimilated. After two or three seasons of milking, the cow is sold for a "canner" and a new one put in her place at a good stiff price. 'There are many dairymen who have made money in the business, who cannot tell which of their cows they are keeping at a loss, or wl 'ch are profitable; they can- uot tell what it costs them to produce a pound of butter; they have never investigated the relative value of feed stuffs nor made anything of a thorough study of breeding, of disease, their prevention or cure, and are weak in a thousand other questions that are of vital importance to the dairyman. They have made their money through hard knocks, strict economy and frugality. Of course industry and good management are necessary to success, but information regarding the details of their profession makes mouey easier with less Investment, elevates.ennobles and enriches the industry and raises it to a plane that makes it a desirable field for the labor of those who have looked upon it as a life of drudgery and sorrow.

Ituttermllk '» The St. Louis Globe-Democrat says that buttermilk is in.such demand in the saloons and restaurants of that city that the dairymen find it difficult to fill all their orders in this line. It has been shipped in from 100 miles away. Continuing, that paper says; But It is a mistake to think that the saloons buy it all. That they should buy it at all is merely one of the queer features of the business. Much buttermilk is sold to restaurants. During the hot season, sweet milk has been largely tabooed, iced tea has lost caste, coffee could not be tolerated, lemonade and soda were not acceptable, and buttermilk -was ushered in as a substitute for all of them. And a most desirable substitute it has proved Itself to be Much buttermilk has been sold to families, and there is not an Ice cream or soda water parlor in the city that does not handle it. As with the saloons, the. demand began with the hot woather. As the temperature rose, the call became greater. Restaurants, saloons and ice cream parlors have been forced to keep It, and In large quantities. The dairy companies recognized the possibilities of the business, and made arrangements to handle an immense supply. They had placards printed which called attention to their buttermilk, or set forth its virtues. The Best Saddle Coat. SLICKER Keeps both rider and saddle perfectly dry in the hardest storms.

The department of agriculture has recently issued a report on the subject of hams, a product of Isle of Wight, Surrey, Southampton and Nansemoud counties of Virginia. About 30.QOO pounds of the annual output, most of which is exported to Europe. These hams are pronounced equal if not superior to the Westphalian. They are made from what is called the razor-back hog. During Us youth this animal is allowed to range the .woods throughout the summer, where"it acquires the peculiar gamy flavor for which its flesh Is noted. In the autumn, when the corn crop is gatherc; 1 , the hogs are driven Into the fields, in which every other row is planted with black-eyed peas. On these and the small corn that remains they fatten very rapidly. As a finishing process the animals are allowed to eat the small potatoes that are left after the crop is harvested. The method of curing the hams and bacon is peculiar to the locality. There are many imitations of the Virginia razor-back ham, some of which are probably equal to the genuine, where the same system of fattening aud curing Is employed. To secure the genuine it is necessary for individual customers to give their orders a year in advance, The barn windows need looking after. In winter especially is light necessary, if the live stock are to be Kept healthy, „_ - , . .. » i vil tH"t?«—11 won i » o *M •*.» w »..*•• , *Uiir who tire KurVeriiiK 1'rorn n weakness tnni •blights their lift-, musing that mental ft"" •physical suffering peculiar to ^' 0 .^,..,,Ti bood.should wriiolo Ilio STAT1-.
