this country nre hoping for a mate rial advancement of their cause na a result of the rapid Introduction of nutomobllcr Thc impulse toward bet ter highways caused by the bicycle Is likely to be repeated In Intensified form now that n new device calling for smooth surfaces has been perfected especially as the higher cost of the auto matic vehicle calculated to cause ita owner to demand proportionate con sideration The serviceability of tIle automobile increases In a ratio with the smoothness of the way The elec trio vehicle having a limited capacity Is especially affected by rough roads which Increase the demand upon the batteries for a given length of run The roarl use of these contrivances Is rapidly becoming their chief feature and hence the hope that Influences too strong to be Ignored will be felt by state legislatures to Induce them to pass modern road laws calculated to reform the highways The process of teaching the rural voter by object les sons that his best Interest lies with a better road and consequently a more liberal system of construction and repair does not produce the results re quired It is slow work to drive the truth through the sloth and prejudice which hue contributed to tbe evolu tion of the worst system of country roads In any civilized country Too frequently the farmer still holds to the narrow tire and kills his horses and loses his markets and wastes his profits to haul his products through the mire or over rough ways that rattle his wagons to pieces long before their time It has become apparent that the farmer must be helped despite himself and the good work already done by the de partment of agriculture and tbe League American Wheelmen and by Individual bicyclists must be furthered by the chauffeurs The owners of automo bile will soon fled It to their Interest to take a hand In the propaganda and with this help the good work may progress to the point of extensive addi tions to the decent highways of the country during the next few years s needed In every state Is a stilt law putting a premium on smooth roads and a tax on bad ones establish lag a system of rebates from the coun ty taxes on nil wagon tires three Inches or more In width and providing the ma chinery for the uniform enforcement of such a statute Even the most be sighted community can appreciate the logic of a road tax nnd with Intelligent honest supervision to see that the road work Is properly done most of the abominations now called by courtesy roads should speedily give place to hard smooth well kept highways bringing business to the farmers and opening up the country to settlement Washington Star MAKING A FISH POND The Rest Way of Ctlllsln the Surplus Water on Farm IIHYlH- arArteitan Welt Many farmers who have an

Jut the hour mattered not to the faithful ape who had been trained to protect the garrison and the hand fut of Inhabitants He was ever on tbe alert The instant smoke Vajseen to arise from the Boer batteries the ape from on elevated scaffolding or tower saw and knew that huge shells were about to pour Into the town And sometimes before the rev port of the cannon was heard the alarm was sounded This consisted ofIa schoolhouse bell removed from its accustomed home nnd erected close by the apes lookout The townspeople and the garrison alike were ever on the quit vlve for the sound of this bell They placed their fate entirely in the hands of this sa gacious animal Before the tinkling sounds were heard Mufeking looked much the same as any other town surounded by earthworks Its shops were open its people were strolling about as quietly and unconcernedly If on n holiday The ringing of the bell changed all this Beneath the town under the streets and under the houses were subterranean tunnels

creek and I knew one oven who was clever enough to build complete little steamboat He coul light a Intnp under the little boiler and the steam would form and piston would work and the wheel- would revolve just as In n big vessel that carries passengers and freight The trouble with all these toy boltA ROPE WINDING ITSELF AROUND AXLE however Is that they will go only one way Having made their trip the have to be toilsomely dragged back by hound to be started again In the same direction While traveling In Oregon som time ago I discovered boat whic seemed to me the most ingenious thing of its kind I had ever seen It was built by some stoneworkera to convey their stone fom the quarry well up toward the head of n small river down to the mouth The stream la everywhere so shallow that It can be forded without danger but it s broken at intervals by stretches rapid or rifle as they are calle In that neighborhood often extending aa far as 150 feet The men built a fiat bottomed boat which they loads with stone and It carried Its cargo down the stream admirably hut thru arose the problem how to get It back when It had been emptied It was too heavy to haul up the stream by hand Where the water was comparatively smooth there was no troube one man could ride on the scow an make his way along with n paddl nnd a pole but tint difficulty was to get It up the rapid The but o boatmen could not hope to propel against so powerful a current and uphill at that How do you suppose they accomplished the task finally By making the boat work its own made two large paddlewheels which they placed one on each side of the scow and joined them by a thin but strong piece of wood In the shop of a cylinder This turned with the wheels and served the itouble pair pose of an axle and r windlass Each end of the cylinder near where It joined the wheels played In a socket somewhat like the rowlock used with an oar only stationary and mounted on the top of a triangular truss To the cyhncer was fastened a rope about 200 feet long When the boat reached thj bottom of a rapid It would be made fast to the shore Then the man In charge of the boat would ford the stream nun mount the opposite banif taking with him the rope in a coil anti paying it gradually out as he walked so as to keep It always taut At the head of the rapid or a trifle beyond he would fasten the further end of the rope to a tree The moorings of the boat would be loosed and the current left to do the rest without assistance The puddle wheel unable to resist the force oi HOAT PULLING ITSELF UPSTIIEAM water flowing rigalnst their sunken blades would slowly revolve and of course every revolution of the wheels would cause the rope to wind itself around tho axle With each turn of the rope the boat would neces sarily be drawn forward and up the stream so by the effect of the con tinued winding It would gradually rise and rise till it reached the place where the current ceased to exert so much power There It would be made dlsIIngngtc1ready for use when needed Then the would cut loose seize his puddle- or pole and work away till the next was reached when he would start off with his rope and repent theI operation described above This process is wearisome with a ncavy stoneboat but It struck me as watched It that a bright boy could adapt it to a toy scow end get n deal amusement out of It If the expert ment did nothing more it would at least be a lesson in the art whiM every mechanic must learnof male ins th forces of nature his servants and compelling them to do for him gooddeal THE SUNDAY SCHOOL Letinn In

nickedal knee Mind you they professed to be rillploiis mere slid they ought to have sip able to utter some religious cuu solation Instead of that they were dumb OB tie sphinx which at that tlllle stood in the African desert and stands there still Why did they not say something about reunion in the Hcuv eniy realms with his children who had been lain Why did they Itot talk to him about the satisfactory explanation In the future world off things we do not understand In thus world Why did they not go to the apothecary and buy a poultice that would have soothed the carbuncles or some quieting potion that would calm his nerves or a few drops of febrifuge that would cool his heated frame No For seven days and seven nights they did nothing and said nothing for his relief They must have almost bored him to death After these three friends had completed their infamous silence ofaweek they began to lecture Job First Hltphaz the Temanlte opens with along story nbout A dream which he had in the night and irritates the auf ferer with words that make things worse instead of better and sets him in an attitude of defense against the lecturer Then comes Uildad the Shuhlte who gives the invalid A round scolding and calls him garrulous and practically tells him that he deserved all that he got and that if be had behaved himself aright he would not have lost his house or his children or his estate He practically says Job I will tell you what Is the matter with you You are bad you are a hypo crite you are now getting paid for your wickedness No wonder that there came from Job an outburst of indignation which calls out the other quondam friend Zophar the Nan mathlte who begins denouncing Job by calling him a liar and keeps or the discourse until Job responds to nil three of them In the sarcastic words No doubt but ye are the people and wisdom shall die with you Oh what friends Job had Heaver deliver us from having one such friend to say nothing of having three of them It was for such friends that Job prayed and was it a religious trl umph for him to do so Would you the very bert of you be In very devout mood and capable of making interces slon for people who had come to you In a day of trouble and said Good for you You ought to be chastised You are being taken in hand by eternal justice If you had behaved your self nrlght you would not have been sick or persecuted or Impoverished 01 made childless Oh no my friend you would not have felt like Job when he prayed for his friends but more 1I a Job when he cursed the dayof hit nativityNotice that this flagellation by the three friends was premeditated They did not merely happen In and come suddenly upon the trouble for which they could not offer a compound The Bible says They had made an Ap pointment together The Interview WAIl prearranged They had agreed as to what theywould say to the sick man You can sen that their remarks were not extemporaneous What they said was subljmely poetic They rose Ie into what In later times we would call the Homeric or Dnnt esque Punt Job was not In need of poetry so much as a salve for hula eruptive disorder He was not dying for lock of n paragraph in blank verse He was not so much In need of a didactic lee tore nbout the justice of God as an assurance of the Divine mercy home pious rustic of the lund of Uz not able to put three grammatical sentences together could have said something more consolatory The meanness of the attack of these religious critics was augmented by the fact that they had the sufferer In their power Vhen we are well and we do not like what one is saying we can pet up and go away Hut Job was too 111 to get up and go away First he endured the seven days and seven nights of silence and then he endured their arraignment of his mo tives and character and after their cruel campaign was ended by a sub lime effort of soul which this day uphold for Imitation he triumphed in prnyer for his tantalizers In nil history there Is nothing equal to It ex cept the memorable imploration by Christ of Ills enemies No wonder that after that prayer of Job was once uttered a thrill of recovery shot through every nerve and vein of his tortured body and every passion of his great soul nnd God answered it by adding nearly a century and a half to ids lifetime mind whitened the hills with flocks of sheep and filled the nlr with the lowing of cattle and soak ened the silent nursery of his home with the swift feet and the laughing voltvrj of childhood seven sons and three daughters celebrated for their beauty the daughters to refine the sons the sons to defend the daugh 1ers There Is nothing that pays so well as prayer and the more difficult the prayer to make the greater the re wnnl for making It Let us all make n similar attempt to pray for those who vex anil misrepresent stud tantalize ns You may he- airy popular In the city or neighborhood where your live but I warrant If you nee In active life there are those shin wish yon the opposite of wishing you well Arc you benevolent They say It Is on your part n matter of per coral display ire you eloquent or learned They declare you are overrated and that what you say or write Is of no importance Do you try to make yourself effect Fir In church or hospital or board of directors Iheycall you ofllclous Are you well dressed They say you nrs proud Does n false report start In lie community against your char Rclcr They believe it nil and add another story to the fabrication Some I nf them pretend to be friends but Ijiey have the cudgels all ready for oulilipha2 the Temanlte Illldad the Shuhlte ophar the Naamathlte Now pray for thm Oh you say I cannot do that 1 thought you could nut nut you will grow In grace until you can do it as easily and at well as did Job pray for his exas pcrators You ought to pity them for defamers and detractors and the envious anti jealous are not happy They hurt themselves more than they hurt you Better be the pursued than the pursuer Better be the infant Christ than Herod the robber of the Beth lehem cradles You want to be a Letter man You want to be a better woman Then scale this height of tri umphant prayer and you will be ten times more ot a Christian than you ever have been It will prolong your life as it prolonged Jobs life You will feel a glorious reaction that will last through all time and all eternity It will steady your nerves It will re duce your spleen It will regulate the pulsation of your heart Prayer la what tome one has called the slender nerve that moveth the muscles of omnipotence Prayer is the healthful respiration of the soul It Is the whisper of helplessness into the ear jot help It is laying hold ot almlghti ness omniscience and omnipresence at one and the same time Prayer enlists all Divine and angelic reenforcement Prayer is laying hold of a pulley fas tened to the Heavenly throne Prayer is the first breath of a newborn soul and It is heard in the last gasp of earthly Christian experiences Prayer I In an instant it mounts the highest heavens Neither seraph nor arch angel ever flew swifter or higher than the infants petition at her mothers knee What an opportunity is prayer Why not oftener use it praying for ourselves What better work would we do what better lives would we live what better hopes would we en tertain if we multiplied and intensi fled our prayers Some one asked a soldier of Stone wall Jackson the secret of the great generalsjnfluence over his men Does your general abuse you swear at you to make you march Swear replied the soldier Nol Ewell does the swearing Stonewall does the praying When Stonewall want us to march he looks at us soberly just as if he were sorry for us and says Men we have got to make a long march We always know when there Is going to be a long march and right smart fighting for Stonewall is pow erful on prayer just before a big fight In all the tossing of this life lay hold of the rope of prayer mentioned by John Newton who was converted on shipboard from being a blasphemous sailor to become a great preacher of righteousness and who said When I first amused myself with going to sea when the winds rose and the waves became rough I tumbled and tossed about like a porpoise In the water At last I caught hold of a rope that was floating about and then I wee enabled to stand upright So when in prayer a multitude of troublous thoughts invade your peace or when the winds and waves of temptation arise look out for the rope and stay yourselves on the faithfulness of God keeping HU prom I ices My hearer I will tell you tht time when you can afford to cease praying It will be when you have no sins to be pardoned no sorrows to be comforted no more friends or foes who need your Intercessions Queen Elizabeth said to Walter Raleigh Raleigh when will you stop begging Raleigh replied When your majesty leaves off giving And your time my hearer to stqp prayer will be when God has no more pardon and mercy and strength to be stow and the resources of the Infinite are exhausted Havelock knew the value of prayer when he arose at four oclock in the morning for his devo tions The soldiers of the Fourteenth Massachusetts regiment showed that they knew the joy of worship when they took a delegate of the Christian commislfcou to see what they called their praying place Now It God has during these re marks shown us the uses the im portance the blessedness of prayer suppose we try to do what Job did whenhe prayed for his exasperators Many of us at the beginning of this subject felt that while we could pray for ourselves and pray for those who were kind to us we never could reach the high point of religious experience In which we could pray for those who annoy and make us feel worse instead of feeling better That was a Matter liorn that was an Alp to the top of which we feared we could never climb but we thank God that by his omnipo tent grace we have reached that height at last Let us pray 0 Christ who didst urns for thine assassins we now urns for those who despitefully use us and say all manner of evil against us For their eternal salvation we suppll cute When time is no more may they reign on thrones anti wear coronets nnd sway scepters of Heavenly domin ion Meanwhile take the bitterness from their soul arid make them soon think as well of us us row they think evil Spare their bodies from pain and their households from bereavement After all the misunderstandings and ontroversles of this life are over may ive keep with them eternal jubilee In tine mansions on the hill And as Thou ilidst turn the captivity of Job when he hind prayed for those who badly used him and health came to his body and prosperity to hula estate now that WI have by Thy grace been able to make supplication for our antagonists sure our diseases if we are ill and restore our estate It It has scattered and awak en gladness In our homenweads If they have been bereft and turn th captivity of our physical pain or

thing it is for a man to put into his mouth that which will rob him of his judgement Wo have a good law in the Glade precinct forbidding time keeping of a saloon and it is not long since this law was ratified by an overwhelming vote of our citizens A largo num ber of men who drink voted for tho law We all realize that it is a temp r tation a corruption seduction to V have liquor sold in a saloon It is not right for people who have i never fallen into the habit of drink to despise those who have been less for tunate but wo should all recognizo the fact that strong drink is a se v ductive tempter and we shouldall pray for ourselves and our neighbors tho prayer that Jesus taught Lead us not Into temptation Without a saloon however it is possible to have liquor peddledand passed around This may not reach as many people or do as much dam as a saloon but the liquor which 11age on the sly in some stable or yard will make just as big a foolof a man as tho liquor that is i drank in a saloon And is it not true that tho man who peddles or procures liquor for somebody whom calls a friend is really acting tho of a traitor and an enemy 1heThere has been a new ruling by it is decided that tho import of packages of liquor into local option territory like this precinct is against the law and we wish to make a very earnest protest to our neighbors who drink to conform to that law and
