THECASE- AGAINST SALOON MAN Judge Pendleton Holds Evidence Produced by Prof Talor is Not Sufficient to Prove 0MioorProbaUlytr 1afigest crowd that courtlroomb leading saloon men of this citv chargedwith violating the liquor law by selling beer to Roger Green of Mt Sterling a minor and a student at Kentucky Wesleyan College Young Green is not a drinking man but in fact is a total abstainer and did not buy the beer for his own purpose but at the request of Prof HVK Taylor President of Kentucky Wesleyan College for the purpose of mak ing a test to see if the saloon keep ers would sell to a minor and if they did to indict them Prof Taylor claims to have evidence of many violations of the law by the saloon keepers selling to min ors and college students and says that he took this step to get proof that could be used in court against the saloon keepers First Case Called The first case called was the one against J W Porter who runs a aloon at the corner of Washington and Maple streets Young Green was the first witness to take the stand He testified that on the niplit of Oc tober the 30th last lie accompanied by Prof Taylor went to Porters sa loon and that Prof Taylor gave him the money and told him to go in and get a bottle of beer and bring it out to hip This the boy says he did says he called for beer and got a bot tie of something and brought it out and gave it to Prof Taylor but could not say whether it was beer or not as he did not open it Prof Taylor Called r Prof Taylor testified that he did ii tsee the boy enter the saloon or come out but that the boy gave him the beer and said that he got it at Porters Green was then asked if he could identify the one who soldvhim the beer and said he did not know Mr Porter the proprietor of the place Avps then pointed out to him and ie said positively that he was not the one that the man who waited on him was clean chaven The two bartenders were then pointed out to him Jack Porter and Will Webb but he could not say whether either of them was the oneMakes Point of Law posiI of the place did not sell him the bottle l the attorneys for the defense then bronsrht rp the net on rs to whether in t tie principal was responsible Jfci the acts of his agents as intliis I r j tJ case Ma otherwas the principal theme jtYd bartetrders his agents The two bartenders testified that Mr Porter had particularly warned them not to sell to a minor Court Dismisses Case After a wrangle between the attorneys on the question whether or not the principal was to be held re sponsible for the acts ofthis x agents after he had warned them selling to a minor the court dismiss ed the case saying that sufficient evidence had not been piodleedto convict the principal or his agents as the boy said he could not say for sure which one sold him the liquor and the bartenders denied selling to him The Bottle Disappears Sojne more evidence that might have assisted Prof Taylor in his prosecution would have been the producing of the bottle in court Bait this could not be done as after the boy would Qfbeach place Pro Taylor marked it to show vhichTlaee it came from and saved it to produce it as evidence but the first night the case was set for trial Prof Taylor brought the bottles to the police court room and Taylorbut they disappeared and therefore could not be produced But One Case Tried But one case of the seven was tried Monday night The same decision would have applied to all six others but the prosecuting attorneys asked for time until Thursday night so that they mayhave an opportunity to look up some authority on some similar cases that might be contrary to Judge Pendletons ruling in the matter If some further evidence is not mo appliedtoNearly every attorney in the city is employed either on one

Women More for Divorce i By REV DR SAMUEL W DIKE Cw Secretary Natiaaal Lequ fee FreUctlea of the Family iHE quistion is often asked Are women or men more respon sible for the increase of divorce If we were to rely on the statistical data alone the answer would have to be that men are the most at fault for the reason that women are applicants for divorce in about twothirds of the cases But this fact proves little for in cases of desertion which have in the past made up nearly 40 per cent of the cases probably a con siderable part are collusive and the woman brings the suit simply because the divorce has been agreed upon and the man has deserted the wife to enable her to get the divorce which both desire And ina large part of all the suits it is technically easier for the woman to take the initiative than for the man It seems to me Vr 5that the causes that enter into divorce cases are so numerous and often intricate that it is impossible and of practically little value to attempt jury positive answer to the question in the form I have put it above variedF1 xcauses or conditions in the main aside from the law and its administra tion that contribute after marriage to the increase of divorce Of course r there are the parties themselves who are immediately responsible The t lightness with which they hold to the marriage bond their low ideas of its sacred obligations the carelessness with which they allow bickerings to pcome into their life the lack of resolute effort to get onhappily the ab sence of children either wholly or in sufficient numbers to enlist the com mon interest of the parents or of too many children in the case of the jpoorer classes burdening the mother with care at the expense of an at tractive home life and tempting the selfish father to desert the family infelicitous relations of sex of which the physician knows more than any other outside the family are among the many causes that operate directly oh the parties themselves Sometimes the wife and sometimes the hus band and often both are in fault Then the nearer friends and relations sometimes are in fault This comes occasionally from direct meddling and taking sides with either t ibe husband or wife Sometimes it comes of a failure to use proper and Perceivedtowardmends to create an atmosphere about the couple suspected of looking to divorce that would encourage continuance in family life Of course all interference is a delicate matter and simple meddling is wrong But torcreate a wholesome atmosphere about 1A 1 the parties ATtX The Extrava dance of Woman 7n By LENA GUILBERT

part df the life of the people we may judge when a play that bears the stamp of worth is brought within reach Within the memory of many living persons the actors that peopled our stage numbered only a few hundreds and there were exceptional persons outside the pro fession that had intimate knowledge of most of them Now 1908 according to statistics compiled by Mr Theodore Brom ley who acts in the office of secretary to the Actors Fund of America our chil djen of the stage exceed 25000 in number A majority of these doubtless tBaire their following It were possible therefore to reach the conclusion that the American public entertains intimate fondness for the theater and its professors It was not a mere accidental locution of the quickest subtlest and tscnest knower of the human heart that the plays the thing The theater is here to stay Passing conditions operate tp control its output in various directions 1 i In matters of taste the public is as likely to be wrong as right An eminent authority addressing himself to this particular issue observes that the fine things seldom are appreciated at first and they never are appreciated by chawbacons who go to the theater in order that they may indulge in the national guffaw An artistic truth is not dependent on a public caprice and it survives public ignorance Few notions are sillier oj adore pernicious than the notion that a public Verdict settles any ques tion of art If all people were born wise and true the case would be changed but seeing that they are born nothing of the kiiid nd thinker J will waste his time with

Forming Block Improvement Societies- A garden contest in Chicago during the last season brought out much ri valry in all parts of the city The ter ritory was divided into five sections with prizes for each one In warding the prizes the judges took into consideration the local en vironment as well as the artistic excellence of the garden window box porch treatment or other exhibit judgedThe thing that stood out conspicu ous as the principal feature of the con test says the Chicago Tribune was the certain contribution which an in dividual may make to the adornment of the city In which he lives The speakers at the meeting at representedImprovement Each one of them em phasized this individual work as of great local value The president of a union of improve ment societies scattered throughout the city declared that individual interest in pleasing home surroundings was the source of strength of the neigh borhood improvement idea The same thought is behind the block improvement society movement in Birmingham Ala The may or of that city has called upon the in dividual to help make it a city beau tifulThe plan followed is to form an im provement association in each block with a view of developing civic pride as well as interest in keeping the premises of the individual clean and attrac tiveThe Birmingham plan forms a desir able link betvveen the individual citi zen and the village or ward Improve ment association By making tIle field of activity much smaller the chances of energetic accomplishments are in creased many times A notable gain is made in the enlist ment of the interest of the boys and girls in their Immediate environment If they are taught the desirability of things of beauty In the way of lawn shrubs and flowers in their own home yards they will be much more apt to respect the rights of others The value of civic interest of this sort to a community is clearly under stood Clean streets and alleys nice lawns well kept gardens properly trimmed shade trees all have their worth to every resident The accomplishments of the many improvement societies which have been established during the last quar ter of a century in parts of the United States have been marvelous This Birmingham block Improvement society idea is so practical that Itijjjjikely to be adopted in many other s The closer a movement of this sort Is brought to the individual the

red hair and a crossed eye And Willie Walkers father was just a poor carpenter whose family lived in a simple cottage with unpretentious surroundingsTherefore Willie being a poor boy and not of very pronounced good looks fell un der the ridicule of most of his fellows at school and about the streets Vher ever Willie went he was sure to hear some boys voice call out to him Hello Bricktop or Hello Sandy pate or Hello there Crooked Lamp And again some tormentor would yell out to him as he went along Say does the world look on the bias to you Sandy Kid And Willie being but a child had not learned to turn a deaf ear to his tormentors In fact he was very much hurt by the epithets hurled at him and was quite unhappy by being the object of ridicule But in the town where Willie lived were two brothersSYd and Tom Jacksonwho felt the kindest sym pathy for the carpenters little cross eyed son and who braved the jeers of the other boys to play with him To be sure Willie was not entirely ostra cised by his fellows but was so often made the butt of their ridicule and coarse painful personalities that he felt he had no genuine friends save Syd and Tom Jackson And often he refused to go on a picnicwhere he And While Im Waiting Id Like to Speak with Your Mother had been invited by Syd and Tom knowing that some of the boys would surely spoil his day by poking fun at his red hair and crooked eye One day Willie was lying on the grass under a tree watching the clouds floating overhead and wishing that both his eyes were straight like other boys eyes when he heard a mans voice call from the gate Is this the home of William Walk er carpenter Willie quickly rose and replied that it was and that his father was William Walker but was at his shop in town busy with some work Well I can wait till he comes home for dinner said the man coming in through the gate And while Im waiting Id like to speak with your motherWillie called to his mother who came upon the porch And as soon as her eyes fell on the stranger she cried out in a happy voice Why if it isnt my dear brother Jim And then Uncle Jim took Willie in his arms and really kissed his frowzy red head declaring that he was a fine boy and worthy of his relationship But that day after dinner Willie heard his parents in earnest conversa tion with his Uncle Jim and heard his uncle say Of course it can be done as slick as a ribbon and no harm done And Ive got the money to pay for it too And it turned out that it was Willies crossed eye oft which they were speaking and on the follow ing day they took him to the doctors office and after being there a little while Willie came away with two straight eyes But of course he could not use his eye that had been operated on for some days and had to have it closely bandaged But when the bandage was at last removed by the doctor Willie was the happiest boy in town for now he had two eyes exact ly alike and as fine and straight as any other boys eyes too As for his red halrbah he didnt care a fig about that And to cap the climax good jolly Uncle Jim bought the finest pony for Willie you ever saw and a saddle and bridle to go with it or on it I should say + v Then you siipuld have seen the way all those ugly tormenting boys did try to get into Willies good graces for they coveted a ride on the pony Besides the report had been circulated about town that Uncle Tim Was a very rich man which was true1 and that he meant to give his nephew all sorts of schooling and travel which was true also And to do Willie justice for he was not a bad boy at hearthe did not resent the way the boys had treated him in the past but he never quite trusted any of them save Syd and Tom Butane treated even his former tormentors with kindness and made them feel quite ashamed of them selves And ta this day they regret having made fun of The kindest and host generous boy in the World Wil lieSWalker Washington Star s 1 t 1 EVERY MAN ttf SHOULD v IN k f HAVE A t TAILOR 4t f It gives him character

broaden this street We are still far from the city Jteaiitiful Many of our streets are t nncared for and some of the sidewalks and most of the alleys are blocked with things which have no Bright to be

worth upwards of 20000 000 swore under oath that he had nott enough monet or securities left from hisvast fortune to pay his debts This revelation was made when Morses attorneys appeared in the United States circuit court of appeals to argue for the admission of Morse setentedat n hard labor in the federal prison at Atlanta Ga was not permitted to leave the Tombs prison when the motion to show cause wiy he should be admitted to bail was argued an affidavit made by him was read The motion was argued before Judges LacombeWard and Coxe and was reserved had not been expected that Morse would make the plea that he was bankrupt as ever since the financial panic which swept tue part of his fortune away he maintained that he would be able to adjust his affairs to the satisfaction of all his creditors Wallace Mac Farlane who appeared in behalf of Morse quoted from the opinion of Judge Hough in refusing to grant bail in which Judge Hough said that no amount of bail would be sufficient- to insure the appearance In court of such a wealthy man as Morse when he was wanted Mr MacFarlanex then continued- I have an affidavit here from Morse himself in which he states that he is not a rich man Mr Morse says that he is in a sense impoverished and that his assets would not pay his debts and that it is doubtful if they ever would If Morse is allowed bail old friends will have to provide- it The statement that he is a millionaire is false and further information will be given to the district attorney if he desires it District Attorney Stimson said it was ridiculous to represent Morse as being a pauper in view of Morses during the trial as to the extent Qfhis financial transactions- He added that it would be wrong to permit a surety company to furnish bail saying that a rich man could easily reimburse such a company and that no one would be held personally responsibly We h some instances of what happened to a man in his posit on- he said They may not be ma because it is rare that a rich man convicted One case is that of Blu menthal who jumped a 60000 bail bond in the silk fraud cases There was the case of Greene and Gaynor who jumped a 40000 bail bond and the efforts of the

avenue to the park wall and turning south continued on parallel to It under the naked trees Now he began to understand some thing of the strange effacement of his friend Selwyn He began to compre hend the curious economies practiced the continued absence from club and coterie the choice of the sordid lodg ing whither Boots one night seeing him on the street by chance had shamelessly tracked him with no ex cuse for the intrusion save his affec tion for this man and his secret doubts of the mans ability to take care of himself and his occult affairs Into the doorway of Selwyns lodg ings Lansing turned When the town was young a Lansing had lived there In pomp and circumstancehis own greatgrandfatherand he smiled terrestrial grimly amused at the irony of things A slattern at the door

are things Phil All right First rate thank you Boots removed the pipe from his lips and swore at him and Selwyn listened with head obstinately lowered and lean hands plucking at his frayed gir die And when Boots had ended his observations with an emphatic ques tion Selwyn shook his head No Boots Youre very good to ask me to stop with you but I cant Id be hampered There are matters affairs that concern me that need instant attention at timesat certain times I must be free to go free to come I couldnt be in your house Dont ask me There are telegrams unexpected onesat all hours What of it You

Selwyn stood up and began to1 r move his dressing goWn aha Lansing dragged out the little flat trunk and began to pack It An hour later they went away to gether through the falling snow For a week Boots let him alone He had a big comfortable room dressing closet and bath adjoining the suit occupied by his host He was abso lutely free to go and come and for a week or ten days Boots scarcely laid

in i the Household IThere are many socalled luxuries really necessaries All labor saving devices are among them For example there is a clever contrivance for keeping eggs hot for those who are in the habit of struggling to the break fast table one by one There is also a potato slicer that turns with a crank and has the potato in thin even slices in less time than It takes to wayIgaugeIIenough and tremendously satisfactory A new lemonsqueezer works like an olive pitter and then there is the olive pitter itself which whisks the stone out in short order Of flour sifters there is no end but the mostappealing of them all seems to be one consisting of a cubical box poised just above the bottom of the flour pan which with pressure on a button lifts the flour into a measuring cup and turns it out A longhandled brush and dust cloth combined makes a convenient imple ment for washing windows and clean ing ceilings and cornices and a carpet sweeper with two handles collects dust from the corners as well as from the center of a room How many who purchase the family coffee know that there are male and female beans and that if one wants the best brand he must insist upon having the former Too many housewives go through the day without system They never matronIland mothers experiences She is determined to keep house systematically and pleasureably and she has evolved three rules for herself as fundamentals First To have only necessary things in her housemeaning that every article of furniture shall be either useful or beautiful Second To have a place for every thing and see that everything is in its placewhich isnt entirely remote from the first rule Third To perform the regular duties of the day In the same frame of mind with which she has made her own toilette taking them entirely as a matter of course At the beginning of the week she prepares a list of certain things things perhaps that have been hanging over for a long time She tries to eliminate one thing from the list each day Apple Salad A good way to use up celery leftovers Cut firm white raw apples into dice and the same quantity of dressingtuce leaf or in apple cups To make the latter with a sharp knife remove all the center of bright green or red apples and throw them into ice water Immediately cut the part you have re moved into thin slivers mix with the celery and mayonnaise and drain the apple cups before filling with the salad Half a walnut meat or a mara schino cherry may be used to top off the individual portions Sometimes a few chopped English walnuts are added to the celery and apple But what ever the combination the apple must not be permitted to stand and darken Sweet and Sour Salmon Boil the fish in a granite pot with three cups of water one carrot one onion cut in small

Disaster The blessings which come to us through the advancement of knowledge and science are never unmixed with their penalties Take the refrigerator for instance It is a comfort and a convenience which has taken such a deep rooted hold on us that it is now a necessity and no matter how humble it may be there is no home without a refrigerator But a nuisance attend ing it is the matter of emptying the drip pan which must be done at regular intervals and because of the neces sarily flat shape of this receptacle so that it may slide readily under the ice chest the task of disposing of the accu mulation of water Is more often than not attended by some spilling No matter what amount of care is exercised it seems almost impossible to pull the pan from Tinder the chest without ac cidentIn of the most up to date hard ware and house furnishing stores there Is now being shown an article of this character which greatly facilitates the removal of the pan The latter may be fllled almost to the point of over flowing yet It can be pulled out with out giving the matter the least car and carried anywhere without the leas danger of disaster It is almost Impossible to upset its contents Care i handling is not at all essential Clad in her finest dress a woman can dispose of the refrigerator overflow without dangerThe refrigerator pan looks like a kettledrum more than anything else It is a low flat cylinder Unlike the usual pan for this purpose it has a covered top Being more or less familiar with the approximate location of the drip pipe the new pan is thrust carelessly under the refrigerator The drops falling anywhere on Its top the WHEN EMPTYING THE PAN water is conducted into the interior of the receptacle by means of a series of channels which carry the drippings an 0 inlet at one edge At this point o the circular side walls of the can ther Is also a handle by which it is pulled from its resting place and carried to the point of emptying Under the han dle there are also other openings to fa cilitata the precipitating of the con tents but in order that it may not overflow at this point they are covered with a hood of the same metal of which the pan Is made In transporting this receptacle from point to point as Is necessary it is carried by the handle in precisely the same manner as a gripsack This enables the pan to be made larger than those of the type in use at present because of its greater convenience it being possible 11fenceder that the idea was never worked out before A Plate Heater For use in the butlers pantry to keep dishes and food

If hogs show a tendency to weak ness on the legs feed less corn and more bran The reason why bran is good for weak bones is that it con tains more phosphate than corn But if the farmer has provided himself withsa few bags of raw ground phos phate rock he will find it an excellent thing to sprinkle a little of it on the hogswinTwo years ago we studied the phos phate experiment made with pigs at the Wisconsin experiment station It was most convincing of the truth of th statement we have made declares the Hoards Dairyman Three pens of pigs of three each were taken for the experiment One lot was fed as farmers ordinarily feed hogs the sec ond lot was fed the same as the first except that a little phosphate was added to their food daily The effect was astonishing in the increased strength of the second lot But it was with the third lot that the full truth was unfolded This lot was fed food from which all the phosphate had been extracted by washing but the process left all other elements such as the nitrogen and pot ash in full strength The effect of this loss of phosphate on these pigs was very striking They were stunted in size though well covered with fat and at the stage of the experiment we saw them they could not stand on their legs a minute Get one of them upbn his feet for a moment and he would commence to falter at once Here was a lesson in the principles of nutrition that was very valuable to the man who can take it Phosphorus Is one of the most important elements k we have for the support of the brain nerve and bone in animal life and for seed growth in plants We have always noticed that our own hogs will at once commence to root in and eat the ground phosphate when we sprinkle it on the floor of their pens A small handful each day to each hog is valuable for the animal mapHOG TRAP FOR RINGING TIME i Contrivance That Will Make the Task 1anEasy One y i JThe accompanying illustration sepakbars only are represented but th body is in the shape of

6as to fit the neck of the hog They are forked on the end and so fit the bolts that are in G C The back of the trap is made like the front says Prairie Farmer but no bars are used Instead a board is dropped dowp in place thereby keeping the hog from backing out The hog Is admitted at the back an- i when he gets to the front he Is grippe- aroundl the neck with the bars The Iron pin is put through

BoliviaGrowing Trees Used In Africa The most original telegraph line In the world once extended from the cap Ital of Bolivia La Paz to the town of Oruro In this part of Bolivia there are no growing trees and wood is so difficult to find that even the ordinary household furniture of the natives is invariably made not of wood but of dried mud or adobe So when the war broke out between Chile and Bolivia and a telegraph line became urgent it was adobe that was chosen for the queerest telegraph poles in existence These pillars were built on stone foundations and measured about five feet square at the base with a height of about fifteen feet They were placed at Intervals of about 361 feet and thus held the wire at a height sufficient to clear the only animals of the country the llama and the donkey The total length of the line was 150 miles Among other curious telegraph lines Is the growing pole line erected in Uganda by an English engineer who could not find any dead wood which andgupon the idea of transporting grow theepoleseEast Indies growing trees are turned to account also but there a wire Is stretched across the road between the trees on either side and the insulator is suspended in its middle and the line is thus over the vegetationChlecago Watch Springs The watch carried by the average man is composed of ninetyeight pieces and its manufacture embraces more than

HENS NOT PROFITABLE Tests Show That Egg Production D cfeases After the First Year tInIn the poultry business dont put too much faith to anyone breed being the bestsIt has been demonstrated by the trap nest that there is more difference in individuals than In breeds Hens must be properly cared for no matter of what breed When eggs are selling at fancy prices of what good is the breed if the hens are not laying Under such conditions some poultry raisers blame the breed instead of themselves and change to some other kind of fowl One of the problems of the poultry raiser is to find the most profitable age of the hen On this James Dryan an Ore saysFoul have kept in touch with poultry investigations during the past few years are pretty well nformed on this point but the importance of this subject is riot yet generally appreciated The writer carried on for several years at the Utah ex periment station a line of experiments with the object of determining the val iie of the hen at different ages for egg production The same hens were kept year after year under similar condi and a record kept of production of food consumed These experiments proved that the hen Is different from the cow which retains or im her production with age The year was the most profitable and was a gradual decrease in pro each succeeding year It is safe to figure this decrease at 25 per cent each year With average prices for food and for eggs it is not urofitable to keep hens after they have finished their second year of laying The first or pullet year is very profitable the second will give a sat isfactory profit but during the third year the egg yield will seldom pay for the food consumed These conclusions apply only of course where the eggs are sold at market prices Fowls that have a special value as breeding stock should be kept longer but the notion that the old speckled hen is the good layer should not be cherished unless she is caught in the trap nest The fact that she sings a joyful lay paints her comb a brilliant red and scratches- a vigorous scratch should not be accepted as sufficient grounds for commuting sentence It is safe to say that the poultry keepers of tills state would be many thousand dollars in the pocket by rigorously killing off the hens every two years and replacing them with new stockwith the exceptions noted aboveWhere the pullets and hens are allowed to run together it will be neces sary to mark them otherwise it will be difficult to separate the old stoc from the young when it is desire- to market them The usual method o marking is to punch a hole In the web between the toes when the chicks are hatched This is easily and quickly done with a punch which may be purchased from the poultry supply houses for 25 cents A number of different markings may be made in this way Where the practice is to dispose of the hens every two years It will be sufficient to mark them every other year IMPORTANCE OF COMB Breeders of Fine Stock Pay Much At tention to Comb Thereis perhaps no part of the pure bred bird that receives or should receive more attention than the comb A good comb will often give style to a bird otherwise faulty The bird with a good comb is often adjudged before the rest of it Is examined The stand ard allows eight points for the comb all of these being for shape alone It Is well for the breeder of fancy fowls to know the comb requisites and to breed accordingly with an Ideal In view Where the breed requires a small neat comb care must be taken in feeding meat Too much meat promotes growth of comb and in the Med iterranean breeds may cause crooked or falling comb Excess of heat will also increase the size of the combs Long exhibition tours with constant showing in heated rooms will often permanently destroy the neatness of a comb Particular Leghorn breeders will not permit the hen to mother the chicks after they can keep them com fortably in a roomy brooder and will not use a brooder which has a cloth hover touching the heads The comb Is a good indicator of dis ease It has been said that the hen carries her health certificate on top of her head The exception to this rule is in liver eomplaints The first symptom of this dhease In Its later stages is an unnaturally bright comb often mistaken for yigorous health The comb has diseases peculiar to itself There is white comb a scurfy condition of the comb due to unsanitary surroundings which Is treated by washing with carbolic soap and anoint ing with zinc ointment Favus Is an somethingofbut more severe Favus is caused by a vegetable parasite or fungus white comb is not The Roosters As soon as the young rooster begins to crow you should either feed him to the threshing gang or sell him in the market catalogued as the old ronster variety Rooster flocks should be con stantly culled and those which do not meet the standard from a breed stand point should be promptly disposed of in some way From the roosters our eedingegradually improves in standard I a 1 RECENT STUDY OF 4FOET CONSERVATION Largest Sawmill in United States is Experimenting With Lumber The future developmentof of the lum ber industry in this country lies in the direction ofa closer utilization of forest products Both foresters and practical lumbermen now agree on tin point Just what can be done in this field is well illustrated in the operations at the mill of the Great Southern Lumber Company which has just re opened its plant at Bogalusa Louisiana in response to the increased demand for lumber after the recent slump jir business Largest Mill in U S This is perhaps the largest sawmill in the United States if not in the world and is capable of turning out the enormous amount of 600000 feet of sawn lumber board measure per day A reader can get a fair idea of this quantity of lumber when he is told that its output is enough to build a little town of 40 houses along y tha good sized churchand a scluol house every day TIMS company was quick to grasp deplctilinvestigationin t arts Forest Service and arrange iiui is have just been completed for a renewal of the experiments Along Practical Lines The work will be along practical Hues and will be aimed to secure t loser utilization of the products of the Southern lumber mills and at the same time produce a margin of profit in excess of that obtained by the methods which are now practiced Tlic field for work along this line- i 1ioad It is well known that the sllp1rlIi grades of lumber are ob hwIirom old mature trees provid rlceY are not weakened by decay or other influences In other

the greater use of chemically preserved wood will undoubtedly result in that wood giving greater life in service Hence the amount of timber cut annually in the United States simply to replace that

ripen by the beginning of August They are not picked but when they reach a certain maturity consequentlytheylug everybody on the plantations goes around with buckets gathering the fruit which they carry to a certain place where the ground is covered with dry leaves and straw serge and on which they spread the fruit exposing it to the sun allowing it to remain there from two to three days It takes about three days to dry the fig if north winds prevail as the at t mosphere is then very dry If however westerly winds are blowing which means heavy dew at night the fruit must remain exposed to the sun from five to seven days This Is a dangerous period as rain or even a shower might ruin hundreds of tons ot fruit lying on the ground Heavy dews sometimes are just as detrimental The proper atmospheric conditions to Insure a crop of large sound rich figs are west winds In June and July foW lowed by north winds in August and from then on an occasional west wind every five or six days Not

Monday night Revival services are being held at this church and will continue for two weeks Dr Porter is one of the greatest orators of the Baptist denomination and holds his audience from the beginnh hisbdiscourse All are invited to the Tuesday evening meeting Dr Porter took for his subject- Backsliding hisbtext Judges 16 20lnd he tit ist not that the Lord has departed from him Dr Porter said in part Not Confined to Religious Backsliding is not confined to the religious world The man who by bad management loses him money is a financial backslide The person who has had a place in the social world and by doubtful deeds begins to lose cast is a social backslider Aman who may have been a regular Apollo gradually loses his heiilth and becomes a physical backslider The worst type of backslider is the man or woman who has known Good and enjoyed religion and who loses the joy of salvation and ser vice There are really two kinds of backsliding conscious and unconscious and these may be periodic or chronic We have all at one time or another been conscious of backsliding Whether we call it falling from grace or in grace we have been conscious of losing power with f and man It is worthy of note that we never lose power with men until we have lost power with God We usually fallout with God before we fall out with Gods people May Begin Anywhere Backsliding lmay begin anywhere in the church house or out of it Satans backsliding began in heaven Adams in the garden of Eden Peters by the Very side of Christ Ifwe were not in a backsliden state we would feet that Christ was in the aisles God in these pews and the Holy Spirit in every portiort of this buildingProbnblJunconscious backsliding is the worst malady with which a mortal may be afflicted It means a deadening of the moral sensibilities and an inability to distinguish be tween the niceties of right and wrong A lady remarked to Turner the great painter that she had never seen such colors in nature as he had in his painting HercpliedNo but dont you wish you could She was minus the artist instinct The moral nerve many become deadened and our spir itual taste depraved Can You Talk to Child Can you take the child vin a room alone not alone for God will be there and talk to that child about the salvation of the soul If not it is a sure sign that you are a back slider If I could not talk to my child about Christ I would get down on my knees and apoligize to the child foi the Christless life I had lived and the Godless example that I had set Backsliding gives no warning of its approach and is more insidious than the wild beast of tlieforest The itbpounces upon its victim the deadk ly rattle snake gives its rattle of warning the Viper its hiss and the tiger its growl but backsliding comes unheraldedand captures the heart Chief Cause of Backsliding One of theI chiefest causes for backsliding is the neglect of church relations It requires neither brains iror religion to criticize the churefi Some pe ple are born in the objective case they object to everything thing and will likely object to dying I knew a lady whose handshake was suggestive ofa congestive chill and yet she constantly complained at the coldness of the church members An waterbwith which it comes in contact Peo ple who move to town and will not unite with the church presents an other kind of backslider They are like matches that will only strike on theor own box There may be bad people in the church but the best people are also there I would rather be the worst of a good crowd than the best of a bad crowd Another Cause of Backsliding Another common cause for back sliding is an unforgiving spirit TJn forgiveness eats into the souls as cancer consumes the body Even Pilate and Herod made freinds over the dead body of Christ When we pray Forgive us as we forgive those who trespass against arswe ask God to forgive us in like manner as we have forgiven others and if we have not forgiven others we have asked God not to forgive us 4 Malice and meanness are inseparable f oackslidingslaod our own experience has justified us in believing this Sampsons strength was restored and even his death was worth more to God and his people than all he had accomplished in his life Even our backslidings maybe come blessings I have seen the freight train when it was unable to go over a grade run far back and get an impetus that would carry it over the grade I have seen the zig zag lightning going backwardand forward but all the time gathering strength to smite the mighty oak Even home seems sweeter when we have long been away from it Scars are the signs ofservice Your hope may be as the spark beneath the ashes but the Spirit shall fan it again to greater life and brighter flame The blessed memories of other days will assert themselves Discusses Reconciliation A husband and wife who had been separated were discussing a reconciliation but apparently had failed In preparing to leave the house he was trying to arrange his muffler about his neck before going out into the cold The wife forgetting for a momefit their differences assisted him in arranging the muffler The little act of kindness brought to life their buried love and they returned to the old home to pursue again the journey of life together At conclusion of the sermon Dr Porter requested every one present who was conscious of backsliding and wished to have restored unto them the joys of salvation and to be more useful in the world to come forward and give their hand to the pastor and himself Nearly everyone present responded to the invitation
