But, of course, he didn't know any-

The members of the church voted
that their dearly-beloved and devoted
pastor should have a vacation, and so
ho decided that he would visit a broth-

This good brother recognizing his

But the visitor calmly replied: "You'll

the grower an opportunity to collect
practically all of the rain which falls

and In seasons when the precipitation

t.mt rapltal of Syria, 300 miles north of
Jerusalem. St. Luko was a native of An-
tioch; so was Chrysostom.
Suggestion and Practical Thought.
"Having proceeded to such a
length, the rage of the people turned
upon the whole Christian body."—Cam-
bridge Bible. The disciples "were scat-
■ ered abroad." The Greek verb is
based upon the thought of seed-sofring,
and Indeed every disciple was a seed
<rf truth. May all Christians be such
when they go abroad, traveling eli her
for business or pleasure. The Jews
were like foolish children trying to
stamp out a forest fire, and merely
spreading more widely the sparks and
blazing coals. The disciples were
drfven "as far as 1'henice" (Phoenicia,
the Mediterranean coast north of Gali-
lei), "and Cyprus" (the large Mediter-
ranean Island northwest of Jerusalem,
t>0 miles from the Phoenician coast),
and Antioch" (the most northern city
on the coast. Thus the fleeing Chris-
tians, "following the track of coasting
vessels, went northward."—Rackham.
It Is easy even for the modern
church to conceive Jewish prejudices,
; and feel that there Is no possibility
j of much good outside "our" denomina-
! tion, or "our" country, or "our" race.
J True Christianity, however, makes its
followers realize that all men are
j brothers for whom Christ died, and
i that the most degraded nations and
races have in them tho making of
saints and apostles.

growth of the Antiocli church is given
In the text. "The hand of the Lord

symbol of power and of work. Willing
Christians are God's hands. Through
them God can easily accomplish what
would be Impossible to their unaided
efforts. Here were a little group of
refugees, poor, despised, pursued.
Here was one of the world's proudest,

Time of Planting—Broom corn, like

makes its most rapid growth In warm
weather. It has been Intimated that
the young plants are rather tardy in
starting, and they do not make much
progress for the first two or three

harvested at a time when the heads
are prime in quality.
Harvesting—Broom corn is usually
pulled and piled In small bunches
along the row. Brush from two or
four rows may be placed together.
These small piles are left in the field
for a few days until they are partial-
ly dry, and then they are gathered up
