AGRICULTURAL GLEANINGS Washington.—A decrease'of about 28 per cent In tho 1930 spring piK crop in Pennsylvania from that of 1929 is shown by the June Pig Survey made by the United States Department of Agriculture. The do- crease for tho nation as a whole la approximately 6 per cent. However, the number of the swine on Pennsylvania farms had reached a new low^7ocord on January 1 and the report anticipated aii upward trend this year. The number of sows farrowed in Pennsylvania last Spring was 26 per cent less than in the preceding spring and IS per cent less than in the fall of last year. The report on the number of sows bred or to be bred for farrowing In the fall indicate an intended increase of Qve per cent in Pennsylvania. Washington. — A further Indication of Pennsylvania's Agricultural importance in the sisterhood of states was seen in.the quarterly hay market review of the Department of Agriculture. The old crop of hay, It was shown, was light a£ the first of the month, only about 8 per cent of last year's market supply being on hand. The bulk of this comparatively small surplus was found in Pennsylvania, and represents tho lightest carryover in- recent years, the report stated. The Keystone State, had marketed 90 per cent of last year's crop at the beginning of the month. Throughout the country, the review asserted, hay crops for tho 1930-31 season will bo light, while alfalfa will probably be about the same as lor recent years. PROF.

Pa. — (XP). — The mantle of Pennstntfc Jessie, the famous cow which lived four years nt Pennsylvania State College with A "window" in her stomach, hag fallen on another. Again selecting; a Holsteln, scientists christened her Pennstate Jessie It with a painless operation In the college veterinary hospital. A local anesthetic was used and beyond shanlng her head several times the heifer gave no signs of being aware, that anything out of the ordinary was taking place. The- opening to her largest fctom- ach Is kept closed with a special rubber plug which cah' be removed when scientists wish to study the bacterial action in Jessie's dinner, The s-tudles Interrupted by the death of the original Pennstato Jessie now may be resumed. They open speculative features which may initiate an entirely new sphere of investigation In dietetics. It has been found that, the bacterial count content In a cow's stomach changes as'new elements are introduced to her food, new bacteria appearing and developing as the new ngtlons were continued, and disappear when the- elements are withdrawn. How these bacteria originate, where they come from and how the findings may apply to humans and influence the general practice of dietetics, comprise a field of large potentiality. The fact that, an organism was found in the stomach of Jessie I which manufactured vitamin B when there was none in the ration, leads to the belief that special bacteria may be derived from other organisms in the stomach, or are developed from existing forms when they are required. • » « KLEINTELTERSVILLE S.

After Joseph's denth Israel quickly grew Into a., nation. The amazing growth of the nntlon aroused the envy nnd fear of the new king. 1. lleavy measure of service (vv. 10-14). Cruel taskmasters were placed over the men, forcing them to labor In building treasure cities as well ns in field service. However, the more they afflicted them, the more did they multiply and grow. 2. The midwives were ordered to murder the male infants. This measure also failed, ns the midwives feared God nnd cliose to obey Him. 3. Commanded thnt the male children should be onst, into the river (v. 22). In God's providence this mandate failed. II. Mosec, the Deliverer, Prepared (2:1-22). 1. His hlrth (vv. 1, 2). Both Ills father and mother were of Levltical stock. Being of the same tribe, they would hnve a common bond of interest nnd sympathy. There w,as, something striking about the child which caused his parents to believe thnt he was sent of 'God. 2. His preservation (vv. 3, 4). Because his mother had fnlth she, did not Ignore the proper use of menns. She was doubtless fnmlllnr with the place where Pharaoh's daughter came to hnthe nnd believed thnt somehow through her the child would be snved. She placed the ark of. bulrushes at the particular place where It would nttrnct attention. Though the hand of God was direct- Ing in the carrying out of His plan, the steps in the process were entirely nnturnl. 3. His education (vv. 5-10). Moses wns educated, first at his mother's knee. Here his mind was filled with the word of God and ncqunlnted with the Jewish hopes and prospects. Doubtles* here the Indomlt- nble purpose wns fixed "rather to suffer affliction with the people of God, than to enjoy the pleasures of sin' for a season" (Heb. 11:24-20). Again, he was educated nt the Egyptian court where he became acquainted with nil the wisdom of the Egyptians (Acts 7:22). 4. His exile nnd mnrringe (VT. 11-22). Moses wns obliged to tnke his flight from Egypt nt the nge of forty, because he nttempted to enter upon his work ns the deliverer of his people (Acts 7:25). He wns conscious of his mission, but wns mistaken ns to the time. His rejection by his brethren WHS n type of Christ's rejection by the Jews. During this time of rejection he secured a bride. Jesus Christ, his great nntetype, while now in the place of rejection by His brethren, Is getting a bride from nmong the Gentiles. Just ns Moses after nwhlle returned nnd delivered his people, so will Christ return and deliver His people, the Jews, who rejected Him. III. Mosea Called to Deliver HI* People (3:1-14). 1. The Lord spoke from the burning bush (vv. 1-6). It was while keeping the flock of his father-in-law In the desert thnt the Lord nppenred to Moses In tbe vision of the burning bush. This bush, enveloped in flames, yet unconsumed. symbolized the people of God en- swathed In the very fire of God. 2. Moses' commission (vv. 7-10). In this commission God showed Ills active Interest, in Hln people. Because of His grace He obligated Himself to deliver them out of the hand of the Egyptians nnd bring them Into the chosen land; therefore God commissioned Mcses to bring forth the people out of Egypt. 3. Moses' objections removed (vv. Four objections were offered, each | one of which God met and removed. J (1) Personal unworthlness (v. 11). (2) The difficulty of tbe people to understand Moses' relationship to God (vv. 13, 14). (3) Unbelief on tbe part of the people (4:1). (4) Lack of eloquence (4:10).

Twelve years of careful selection nnd export training have worked wonders with the birds nt Fort Monmouth, N. J., whore most of the carrier pigeons for tho United States Army are bred and trained by tho plgeoneorH oC the Signal Corps. Immediately after the war, n speed of 1,600 ynrds a minute was considered exceptional. Today flights of n mile (1,760 yards) n minute, nre not unusual. Not long ago, nn American -pigeon did 300 miles at tho rate of 2,100 ynrds n minute, which is a little better than seventy- ono miles v an hour, writes John E. Ixodgo In tho August Popular Science Monthly. "Doughboy" Is tho mile-a-mlnuto flyer nt Fort Monmouth, In last year's national races, It flew from Chattanooga, Tenn., to the fort, a distance of 720 mllos, In eighteen hours, six of which must bo subtracted for roosting time. Tho champion 1 long-distance- flyer nt tho post is "Topeka Hen," which flow from Topoka, Kan., to the fort, n distance of about 1,500 miles. This championship flight the bird achieved purely by accident. Together with a number of other pigeons, It was shipped to a fancier nt Topoka, whence It escaped and flew homo. Next. In lino Is "Scott Field," which covered n distance of approximately 1,000 miles, from St. Louis, Mo., to the- for\. A dozen lofts house tho flock of 500 birds now at Fort Monmouth. At the Armistice, nearly 9,000 homing pigeons were in service with the A. B. F. In France.

Ninety per cent of all messages entrusted to American homers at the front reached their destinations. F. B. SIMMONS, C. M. T. C. STUDENT, WAS SENT HOME Fort Washington, Md., Today.— (ff>) Frank B.
