It found that the stovei reaches its highest feeding value and greatest yield when the ears are well dented and the blades are just beginning to dry. The station concludes that tho highest feeding value of both stover and grain is obtained when the cqcn is cut almost immediately after tho stover is at its best. Prof. Curtis adds : "After the corn plant is fully ripened, the deterioration of the stover sets in early and progresses very rapidly, and corn stalks lose half their dry matter and more than half of their feeding value by standing in the field sixty days after maturity is reached." As well-curcorn fodder is as valuable as timothy hay for feeding, it should be put into shocks as soon as the grain is well dented, and after husking it should be protected from the bad weather either by being put into mow, stack or large shocks securely bound.

That Baptists through all the ages, have insisted upon a converted church membership, always protesting against the baptism and reception of any others. 1. Hence the baptism of believers only has always been eminently a peculiarity of Baptist faith and practice. 5. Therefore the Baptists have ever been the unswerving and unalterable opponents of infant baptism. VII. The Baptists have never practiced but one baptism as it relates to the action to be performed, which from the beginning ot the administrations of the Harbinger down to this day has been IMMERSION, and immersion only, the late DISCOVERY to the contrary notwithstanding. 1. As a people, a sect, a congregation or a church, Baptists, by whatever name they may be designated, have never held or practiced or preached affusion Gospel baptism. 2. For the fiisrt 1300 years of the Christian era, immersion was by far the most common form of baptism practiced by all sects and parties of religionists, and that, too, embracing infants. 3. How say some among us that even down to 1G41 that immersion had not come into general use among certain Baptists 1 4. Have not the very name Baptist and immersion been, through the ages, terms, meaning the uie thing, in so much that our enemies have often derisively called the Baptists tlie dippers, the plungers, the bousers, etc And here let it be noted ' called by these 10- - place them, there would be no controversy between Baptists and others on baptism. , 5. The same is also true as it relates to communion, for who will deny that a baptized believer in good sUihHbs and full fellowship in his cliureh u a proper communicantat the Lord's TaMe? XIII The principle of free voluntariness in all matters of conscience and of religious faith and practice has always constituted a strongly marked peculiarity of Baptists. 1. That religion among Baptists kas ever been held to be a matter of the personal persuasion of an individual mind, and not, therefore, the work of proxy or thing that may be produced or procured by the employment of force in coercion. 2. As a lonserjHeHte of this eoftvic-tioBaptists have ever rejected infant baptism and infant church membership. 3 Another result of this principle in its practical effects upon tbe conduct and history of Baptists, may be seen in the fact that they have never peiseeuted aar religious sect or partv on aecount of dif ferences of faith or opinion. 4. We have always cheerfully and w illingly granted to others all we claim for ourselves only asking to be allowed the free exercise of our own voluntariness in all matters of religious opinion and duty, accrediting to all others the same sincerity, honesty and conscientiousness that we claim for ourselves. XIV. Baptists hold that the AVord of God constitutes the only and authoritative standard or rule of faith and duty, and is therefore the criterion by which all human creeds and opinions must and will be ultimately tried at the great judement of the final day. 1. Hence all true and loyal Baptists and Baptist churches disclaim the right or power to legislate in the affairs of the kingdom of Christ, holding that their churches are only authorized to act as executives of the WILL of their jjreat Legislator and Law giver. 2. For this reason all our aiociatJo!j and conventions disclaim the poesefSTOn of all ecclesiusticnl pow er or authority, only claiming to represent our chttreiies as advisor' councilors awl coufetfera tors in the superintendence of WfcwKH and the promoters of education. 3.

IX. That the lUptists are the only people under the sun who have never, at any time or place, attached any saving importance to either or both of the ordinances of the Gospel. 1. The Baptists do not believe that the ordinances are means of trrace in the sense that they confer or bestow spiritual or saving endowments not before possessed or enjoyed. 2. We believe that, so far from our being saved by the u&e of the ordinances, they can only be Ifccripturally administered to such persons as are already ' saved. charge so often 3.

The methods of cultivating corn have changed, and shallow or surface cultivation is rapidly displacroot ing the old destroying system. Deep plowing should be done before planting an! after culture should be only curface work. The Kansas State Board of Agriculture has issued a very valuable work on growing corn. Progressive farmers should obtain a copy and study the results as sh6wn by the leading growers of this important cereal m that great corn State. We take the following from the deep-plowing, tests with four hundred and ninety varieties have been made to determine the relative productiveness of white and yellew varieties, and the average yield of white bushels f has been two and in excess of the yellow. At six of the seven stations making these tests some one white variety has given the best yield, and of the 35 varieties named as giving the best yields at the different stations, 24 are white and only 7 are yellow. Of course many white varieties are better than raanj yellow ones; but on the average white is the one-hal- report; Twelve hundred and sisty-seve- n ence, and such authorities as Prof. the yield being the same for any Plumb, Prof. Morrow and others distance between eleven and fourare ageed that color does not de- teen inches.

Prof. Plumb says on this point : "On warm, light soil the seed should bo planted deeper than where it is cold and retentive. The process of vegetation is slower on cold than warm land, as the temperature is lower at the same depth below the surface.

Notwithstanding all that has been said in favor of frequent surface cultivation of corn, a vast number of station experiments do not show any material gain or any profit from lrequent cultivation.

Finding that to attempt an argument in proof of each peculiarity to be here introduced would ruin this paper beyond any reasonable length, we have concluded to make it suggestive rather than argumentative, hence we advance to our task without preface. I. That their 'denominational existence antedates all other religious sects that have arisen, or have begun to exist, since the advent of the Messiah, or the introduction of the Christian era.

Our reasons for this peculiarity are few and simple. First, because we find none others in the primitive churches : and secondly, because we find no other duties of an official character than such as are enjoined upon one of those officials. XI. That church and state governments should be entirely distinct and v. holly i separate and independent of each other. 1. This we claim to be one of our peculiarities, because our churches were at first founded on this principle by him who said, "Render to Cjesar the things that are Cresar's, and to God the things dience to that irreai truth ? 3.

XVI. Finally; that Baptists hoM such principles of faith and practice in religion as enables them, alone among all of the denominations of earth, to present to all other so called evangelical denominations such grounds and terms of union as all can accept, without the sacrifice of any principle whatever. 1. This may be seen in the fact that all Baptists hold, teach or affirm touching the points that divide the religious world, are already conceded by all our adversaries, at least so far as the orthodox" are concerned. 2. If we will inquire and ascertain what are the points of difference that really divide the evangelical" sects, we will, most likely, be surprised to find that t hereare but tw o and only two. 3. Moreover, it will be discovered that, when these two points of differences will naturally and neceesarilv adjust themselves. 4. The two points referred to are, First, Who ought to be baptized? and secondly. How should the rite be performed ? 5. This will be found U ba true especially as it relates to-- all Pedohariti- -l sects to whom Baptists mny propose, that if they will, among themselves, agree upon these two questions as a unit, without a dissenting Xote. that, they (the Baptists) will accept the " grounds of nuiou without questioning. "so-called "so-calle- d hhh obe- ,S UF.MAEKi. t,.. have now noticed the main or principal peculiarities that distinguish Baptists from other sects. These furnish the grounds upon which we claim to exist as a separate, distinct and independent denomination. 2. It is a fact to be noted, both by our churches and preachers, that where these distinctive features of our faith and practice are made most prominent, and kept most prominently before the people, there we enjoy our greatest suc1. AVe . cess, and. vice versa. 3. How proud should Baptists be of the heaven-give- n and. principles which have stood the tests of tbe ages and the fires of persecution, and stand "as fair as the moon, as clear as the sun, and as terrible as an time-honorto-da- y army witlr banners." 4.
