Experiments Show That the Grain
Has Many Advantages.
Many questions have been asked
about tho value of the soy bean as
compared with cowpeas as a forage
crop. Tho Tennessee experiment sta
tion at Knoxvllle, Tenn., has conduct
ed many experiments with tho soy
bean. From its bulletin we learn
that the soy bean produces more grain
than the cowpca, whether It Is pas
tured off by hogs or whether the grain
Is thrashed and ground. As a hay or
grain crop tho soy bean matures ear
lier than tho cowpca by several weeks
and would therefore appear to be a
safer crop to grow In the north. An-
other advantage of tho soy bean Is
that it grows with a straight upright
habit and can be seeded in drills so as
to give thorough cultivation the same
as fodder corn. When planted with
corn the cowpeas are better because
they climb to some extent up on tho
cornstalks, while the soy beans nre not
climbers at all. It is also said that
cowpea hay Is more easily cured by
common methods than tho vines of the
bean; also a small second crop will
grow if tho cowpea vines aro cut for
hay early in tho season, while there is
no particular growth of this kind from
the soy beans. On the other hand, the
soy beans aro hardier than tho cow
peas. They will even stand a light
frost, which would kill the cowpeas.
They will germinate and grow In cool
er weather than the cowpeas can en
dure. It Is easier to cut soy beans
with a mower because of their upright
growth and because of tho fact that
they ripen nearly all together. As
grain producers soy beans largely ex
cel tho cowpeas. Some of tho better
varieties yield over thirty bushels of
grain to tho aero In addition to the
vines or straw.
Shallow planting of tho seed 1ms
given bettor results than deep, one to
four inches being better than deeper.
One-half bushel of seed Is recommend-
ed as a fair amount for planting
In rows and one and one-half for
broadcast drilling. When planted in
rows, as will be most satisfactory In
tho north, ono deep cultivation Is glv.
en, the same as for corn, and after
ward shallow culture and plenty of it,
Harvesting the crop is comparatively
easy. It can be easily cut with a mow
er. It Is well to cut early, while the
vines are very green, so ns to avoid
shattering the leaves and tho beans
from their pods. Trials have been
mado of cutting the soy bean vines
with both corn and wheat harvesters,
but this has not proved satisfactory.
Tho vines aro hard to cut In the ordi
nary way. In the south, and especially
during wet seasons, It has been neces
sary to use one of tho frames shown In
tho Illustrations. These hollow frames
of poles or boards are set up as shown
and the soy bean vines piled around
them. This permits a circulation of
nlr under and through the pllo and
helps greatly In drying out tho vines.
Disease In Fruft Trees.
Not long ago the Maine experiment
station purchased sixty apple trees
from a leading Now York nurseryman.
The package In which they were ship
ped bore a tag stating that the orchard
from which they came had been offi
cially Inspected and found free from
disease. Threo out of the sixty trees,
or 5 per cent of the shipment, had
well developed crown galls upon them.
This experience Indicates that every
orchardlst should very carefully In
spect all stock. All trees showing
evidence of crown gall should bo ei
ther returned to tho shipper or burned
and future orders placed with nurs
erymen who can and will furnish
trees free from disease. Under no
conditions should trees be planted
which show growths of this kind.
Crown gall also affects peaches, plums
and pears.

Verses 12-15 What Is tho dominant

Do ministers as a class "labor" as
hard, and suffer as their Master did,

Does the avetige minister or not,

Verse 14. If you know anything
against a fellow Christian what Is
the right thing to do, (1) say nothing
about It; (2) talk about It to others;
(3) correct him In tho presence of
others, or (4) seo him alone and In
love tell him what you have to say?

Is is your duty, as a Christian, to
take palna to "comfort" everybody

Verse 15 If my neighbor Gets his
dog on my sheep, pulls down my
fences In the night, shoots my chick,
en when one gets Into his yard, Is
constantly slandering me and my fam

ing Just debt, what would Jesus do If
ne were I? (This question must
be answered In writing by members
of the club.)
Verso It! It Is easy, Paul, for yon
to say, "Rejoice evermore," but is it
practical for ordinary mortals, and If
so, how?
Verse 17 If a man Is really in love,
with God and his fellows, does he not
necessarily pray all the time, either
consciously or unconsciously?
Is It necessary, or helpful, to have
set times for conscious prayer?
Verse 18 Are we to bo thankful
alike for pain and pleasure, for loss
and gain, for enemies and friends, If
we are "In Christ Jesus?"
Is It not an actual fact, based on
tho truest philosophy, that every sort
of experience, which comes to a truo
man, Is in the highest possible sense,
for his good?
In the light of eternal existence, are
there any such things as accident,
calamity, misfortune, or even regret
table circumstances, in tho life of a
man of God?
Verse 19 Can any man retain the
peace of God, who Is not absolutely
obedient to the leadings of God's Holy
Verse 20 Prophesying here means
preaching, is there any sign In these

Why should a love for the preaching
of the gospel be cultivated?
Verse 21 Why should we not as
Christians encourage the most abso
lute free thought, the most critical re
search, and welcome tho teaching of
truo science?
Can the real truth ever bo a hurt
to a true man, and Is not such a man
as glad to change his opinion, when
he finds he Is wrong, as to change a
worn-out garment for a new one?
Verse 22 It we desire the right

need we ever fear even tho "appear

They Had Many Curious and Inter
cstlng Origins.
The little customs that have come
to be a part of the marriage cere
mony nave had diverse and interest
tr origins. The ring has played an
inmcrtant part.
With the coming In of Christian
ity it was no longer placed on the
right forefinger but on the left third
finger. The priest, or in some cases
the groom, first put It on the thumb,
saying, "In the name of the Father;"
on the forefinger, adding, "In the
name of tho Son;" on the second An
ger, continuing, "In the name of the
Holy Ghost;" then on the third fin
ger with "Amen" and there It re
mained. The bridal ve'.l originated in Bi
ble times and was won until all tho
public ceremonies were over, so It
can readily bo understood how Ja
cob was deceived Into marrying
Ltah Instead of her sister Rachel.
In the Anglo-Saxon wedding cere
mony a square piece of veiling was
hold over the head of the bride to
conceal her embarrassment.
In the later Bible days, during the
period between the betrothal and
the wedding, the bride remained
with her friends and could commun
icate with her affianced only through
"the friend of tho bridegroom," as
mentioned' In John III, 29, who also
performed other services for tho
Throwing shoes originated in the
old Jewish custom of handing to the
purchaser of land an old shoe as a
token of surrender or renunciation
(see Ruth iv, 7). The bride's fath
er gave a shoe to the husband or
threw It after him to signify they
surrendered to him all authority
over their daughter.
Throwing rice symbolized fruit
fulness and plenty from its general
distribution over tho world.
Taking the husband's name origi
nated In Roman times, though the
date Is not known. When Julia
married Pompey her name became

Don't Live in New Houses.
Why Is a new house unhealthful?
That Is a question that has been ask
ed by many and been answered by
few. And yet the reason is obvious,
In the construction of just one me-
dulm sized house it is estimated
that over thirty thousand gallons of
water is used.
This water does not evaporate as
quickly as it would In the air and
sunlight, but t3 near the surface of
the earth und ,tho house and in the
walls of tho cellar. Hence, the
house Is dam and damp houses fos
