the Ulna's cabinet. Could anything be;
more ridiculous? Doubtless ot'.ci
fishermen talked It over umonn Hhv.i
selves that day and said, "Simon IVt

left their nets nnd roiio off after t'rit
man, Jesus of Naznreth, who Imagine
himself a king, lie has made tlicn

and that he Is to set up the kingdom
of heaven upon earth, and they hive
foisaken everything nnd gone off on
a fool's errand after him. Well. They
will soon realize their mistake, they
will be back again. Fortunate for
them Zcbedeo will keep the f!shi:i!;
boats nnd the tackle, that they may
have something to fall back upon
when they discover how they have
It is almost Impossible for us to real
ize what It meant in those days, to
those people, when Christ made up
blj cabinet. Where was there ever
such a beginning? How could any
thing be more ridiculous In worldly
eyes weakness In the Leader who
had such dreams of universal domin
ion, weakness in the followers to
leave a paying business of which they
knew so much to take up a stupendous
task of which they knew absolutely
And yet, as we look back upon that
t::ene, we recognize It now us one of
t. the grandest and most logical begin
' ning;j the world has over seen. No
wonder Taul snys of It, "Cod hath
chosen the foolish things of the world
to confound the wise, and God hath
chosen the weak tilings of the world
to confound the things that ara
tnlglity, that no flesh should glory in
The trouble with almost nil men
who enter the service of Christ Is that
they have so much to unlearn be'.oru
they can qualify as witnesses, they
know so many things that are not ro,
they are so much In lovo with then
own ideas and opinions, they hiwu
such an overwhelming conviction of
their own Importance, that tl.ey
consciously taint the water of I'.fu
with their own personalities, and hidu
tl.eir Master behind themselves. They
are not satisfied to deliver His mes
sage until they have rewritten It find
taken the heart out of it with their
explanations, which do not explain
The king's cabinet was not troubled
with any of these things. They were
to be witnesses unto Him and they
knew no more than to intelligently re
peat Just what they hud seen and
heard. They never uttempted to
argue a case, they took tho witness
box and unflinchingly told Just exact
ly what they knew of Christ. They
bad nothing to unlearn, they were not
troubled with tho Intellectual, social.
Hplritual, moral, political, sectarian
1! faculties of the high-browed profes
sors and worldings of their day. Their
minds were like unsoilcd paper on
which the King could write bis mes
sages to suit Himself. They carried
the seed of the kingdom In untainted
vessels, and all they had to do was to
bow it far and wide. They were to be
merely the echo of His voice without
nny attempt to originate ideas or to
rpeak their own message. As itiner
ant preachers whose work would de
mand physical stamina and oblivious
"ess of weather conditions, those
brawny, aun-burned, rugged Gulllee
fishermen were ideal timber for the
Kills of tho spiritual temple Christ was
about to erect. The moro one thinks
f it, the more one comes to realize
that when the King formed His cabi
net lie showed His intlnlte wisdom in
be selection of the men who were to
'arry on His work in tho development
of His kingdom. No wonder the apos
''V in describing the church long ufter
ward snld, "We are built upon the
foundation of the apostle und
prophets, Jesus Christ, Himself, bo
J'!S the chief corner stone."
The Zoological Press Bulletin.
Timely Topics of Plants and
Pests Discussed Weekly, by II. A.
Surface, State Zoologist.
CATJSK OP DK FnCTIVK FRUIT.
Commencing his letter with the
statement: "I have an orchard of a
few hundred fruit trees, of all
kinds, but for the last few yers
our fruit has been extremely faulty,
apparently nil of it stung by in
sects and worm eaten," a Monroe
county man wrote Professor IT. A.
Surface, State Zoologist, Harris
burg, for information, and also in
quired about "oil emulsions."
Professor Surface replied: "I
have at hand your letter stating
that you find your fruits defective,
and asking what to do to prevent
such troubles. I beg to say that
the first thing to do is to find out
just what is t he cause of such de
fect?. You can send damaged fruits,
leaves and twigs to this office for
examination. The cause of each
luipericciiou win ic given, men
me next step is 10 appiy ine ngni
remedy in the right way, with the
right material, in the right pro
portion, and at the right time. All
these things ate necessary for suc
cess. Not one can be over looked.
For example, the insect making
the wormy fruit, of which you
write, is, doubtless, the codling
moth. The rreventive is to sprav
with an arsenical poison, such as
Palis green or arsenate of lead,
using either one-thin pound ot the
former, or two pot mis of the latter,
in fifty gallons of water or Bor
deaux mixture, applying it thor
oughly as a spray blown with force
from above the fruit so as to reach
into the blossom ends of the young
fruits just after the petals have
fallen, and again in ten days or
"If you do not have any certain
kind of pest present, or liable to
appear soon, il is unnecessary to
sprny for it. l or example, the
lime sulphur and oils, used when
the tr;es are dormant, are for San
Jose scale and other scale insects.
If such are not present, there is no
need of going to the expense and
trouble of spraying. However, you
should oe certain whether vonr
trees have San Jose scale. To be
sure of this you should send to this
office some clippings or twigs Get
twigs showing the ring that was
last winter's terminal resting bud,
from which the 1909 growth start
ed. It is here that we will be most
likely to find the Scale, if present.
Spacimens can be sent by mail.
Your spraying operations should
be in accordance with what we
"You ask about the use of oil
emulsions. I presume you mean
the commercial preparations. I do
not recommend them, for the fact
that they do not always kill the
Scale without injury to the trees.
Many orchards iu this and other
States have been entirely destroy
ed by them. You can not afford
the risk. The commercial oils may
be all right for two years, but the
next vear cause thousands of dol
lars of damage in the same orchard,
as was experienced by one of Penn
sylvania's most prominent and suc
cessful,fruit growers. At Mont Al
to, Franklin county, an owner lost
between five and ten thousand dol
hrs worth of fruit in 1909 by using
t il sprays, although in 1908 and
the year before, the results with
the same materials on the same
trees had been apparently good."
Missing Heiress Found.
Miss Klltrta de Janon. the gran
daughter of Robert Huist, who dis
appeared from Philadelphia two
weeks ago, in company with Fer
dinand Cohen, a waiter at the
Bellevue-Stratford, was found on
Monday with the man in Chicago.
The police have been conducting a
careful search throughout the
country. The couple had succeed
ed in concealing their whereabouts,
however. While traveling they went
from Philadelphia to Atlantic City,
thence f. New York, then to Mon
treal, Canada, and from there to
St. Johns, N. B. There they took
a steamer bound for England, but
left the ship at Halifax, and went
from there to Boston and thence to
Chicago, where they were located.
Both were brought back to Phil
adelphia, where the girl was put in
care of her grandfather, and the
man was locked up pending prose
cution. With the mercury three below
zero, Ohio State University was
compelled to close on Monday in
all departments except one, be
cause of the lack of coal.
