Just now women—rich and other-
wise—are reveling In the vogue for
costume Jewelry, accesorles chosen
with respect to color and design nnd
Intended to finish off the toilette. These
finishing touches are even more fas-
rinating than mere clothes. Necklaces
and earrings lead In demand, but

parent glass nnd In opaque beads.
Combs In all colors and In many shapes
and sizes are made of translucent cel-

or rhinestones; a novel pattern appears
In the picture Imitating tortoise shell
set with rhinestones. Bracelets of the
sume material nnd others of metal or
glass provide another means for punc-
tuating the costume with a point of
brilliance nnd color.
The theme presented In our text
today Is prize-winning. We are re-
minded of what
we all know
well, that in
every race, al-
though all run,
only one receives
the prize. We
are ndt. there
fore, to enter-
notions and con-
sider our victory
and reward as-
sured. But we
are like Paul to
selves with un
derstandlng and meeting the neces-
sary conditions of success and ap-
proval by Him before whom we are
some day to stand and give account.
Such conditions there undoubtedly
are. We get more than a hint of them
here by noting the three plain ad-
monitions which the words of the
passage convey. The three Injunc-
tions are: Be temperate; be definite,
I. Be Temperate.—"And every man
that striveth for the mastery is
temperate in all things. Now
they do It to obtain a corruptible
crown; but we are Incorruptible.’
(v. 25). It would have been the
height of presumption and folly to
have essayed to enter the foot race
or the w’restling match without due
preparation. We are told something
of the strenuous conditions Imposed
upon the contestants. For any man
not to conform to these was to for
felt all chance of winning the prize,
He had to submit to ten months of
most rigid training, surrendering him-
self absolutely to the control and dic-
tates of his trainer. Ills food, his
drink, his exercise, his sleep—all these
and other details were minutely
prescribed for him. He beheld others
around him taking their ease and
comfort, Indulging f.nd dissipating
themselves at will, enjoying their
"good things.” Yet he dared not fol-
low their example. Indeed he did not
choose to do so. He could look on
calmly and unaffected for he ihad
elected a higher course.
And so the prize-winner In the spir-
itual realm Is admonished to “be tem-
perate.” We are living In an age of
Indulgence, of intemperance, and that
by no means Is confined to the mnt-
ter of strong drln*. There is intem-
perance of eating and drinking, of
pleasure seeking, and husiness rush.
It Is n day of going to extremes along
every line. Never was the admonition,
"be temperate" more needed, or the
divine art of “using this world as
not abusing It.” Even in leligion we
find the tendency to run to extremes.
People are riding spiritual hobbles.
They advance one truth to the exclu-
sion of all others. They substitute
one spoke of the wheel for the hub.
In a word they are eccentric. They
need to be reminded that “the fruit
of the spirit Is temperance."
II. Be Definite. “I therefore run
not as uncertainly." (v. 20). Puul
had a certain aim. His was no zig-
zag running. He ,nn a straight course
from start to finish, with his eyes
fixed steadfastly lpon the goal. Ood
wants us to have a definite, absorbing
aim, and to make straight paths for
our feet. We must set our faces like
a flint, looking neither to the right
nor to the left, but straight ahead.
Today Is a day f specialization, of
concentrating upon one line, whether
In business or In professional life.
Men are bent upon becoming special-
ists, experts, with an ambition to
excel in one thing. It was so with
Paul. He cried; “This one thing I
do." The psalmist said: “One thing
have I desired of the Lord ; that will I
seek after." Jesur said to Martha:
“But one thing Is needful.” I won-
der how many things we are trying to
do. The trouble with many of us Is
that we are attempting too many
things. We linve too many irons In
the fire. We need to learn Paul’s les-
III. Be Earnest. "So fight 1, not as
one that beateth the air; but 1 keep
under my body, nnd bring It Into sub-
jection." (vv. 20-27). Paul means
that he was not a mere aerohnt, or
gymnast, performing for the galleries.
He was not striking at Imaginary ene-
mies with no possible serious conse-
quences to himself. Ills was no mere
sham battle. It wus n real, n des-
perate fight. Literally he says: , "1
bent and bruise my body.” Oh. how
easy It is to let God's truth slip from
us I God save us from “beating the
air." God forbid that when we have
professed nnd even preached to oth-
ers, we ourselves are cast away!
Remember this, then, that there nre
conditions for prize winning In the
Christian race, nnd that while all run,
one recelveth the prize. The propor-
tion of winners Is small, noi because
God rules anybody out, but simply be-
cause so few are really ready to pay
the price and meet the conditions. “If
any man will come after me,” suld
Jesus, “let him deny himself, take up
hlB cross and follow me."
No farm Is complete without a con-
crete feeding floor as part of Its equip-
ment. It Is hard to estimate the
amount of feed that has been lost and
wasted through being fed In the mud.
A paved feeding floor Is sanitary and
does away with the unsightly mudholes
so common to barnyards.

Concrete barnyard pavements, as
shown In the Illustration, are easy to
build, and the man who has never had
experience with concrete can acquire

carefully following a few Instructions
Not all of the pavement need he built
at one time. A strip 20 feet wide Is
enough for a beginning. Additional
strips can he added as desired.
Plan for Paving.
In paving a feeding yard with con
Crete, first grade the site so that It is
practically level. If tlie drainage Is
not good, drain tile should be laid. A
sub-base of several Inches of gravel or
cinders Is sometimes advantageous.
The concrete should be mixed In the
proportion of 1 part of cement, 2
parts of sand and 3 of pebbles or
broken stone. A thickness of four
Inches Is the allowable minimum and
five or six inches Is safer, especially
where heavy lends are likely to he put
on the floor. The surface should be
made to slope toward one corner, with
a pitch of not more than one-fourth-
inch per foot, and It should be finished
with a wood-float, which leaves a grit-
ty surface that can be easily cleaned,
yet affords a firm footing for the stock.
After the concrete has been laid It
should not he used for at least two or

amount of materials required to build

The striped cucumber beetle attacks

They even burrow down to meet them

They devour the tender stems and

slender white worm-like larvae Injure
the plants later In the season by tun-

The control measures which have
given the greatest promise of success
are preventives, repellents, farm prac-
tice, and the use of Insecticides, par-
ticularly nicotine dust and arsenate of
In suggesting control measures, the
department commends that young and
choice plants In smuM gardens be
protected with tight coverings. If an
excess of seed Is plunted, the attack
will be distributed, and some of the
plants will escape the beetles. Nico-
tine dust should he applied directly, and
arsenate of lead used as a spray,
either alone or In combination with
bordeaux mixture. Oare should be
taken to cover every portion of In-
fested plants, both surfaces of leaves,
vines and stems. Clean culture with
trap plants Is an aid. Active co-opera-
tion of neighboring growers of cucur-
bits In these methods is desirable.
Community effort in observing these
methods will undoubtedly lessen the
danger of losses from this pest In the
course of time.

“Yellowing” Cuts Deeply
Into Alfalfa Production
"Yellowing’’ Is one of the most seri-
ous troubles of the alfalfa grower. In
the East, says the United States De-
partment of Agriculture, it Is respon-
sible for a greater reduction Id yield
every year than any of the diseases or
Insects. In the past few years It has
been observed In the West, but In the
rest of the country It has been known
almost as long ns the crop has been
grown on a commercial scale.
Although the cause of “yellowing”
has never been definitely determined.
It has been attributed to a number of
unfavorable conditions. In some cases
It has been thought that soil conditions
were- responsible, as the same symp-
toms occur In the absence of sufficient
lime, plant food, or drainage. But It
also occurs where all these conditions
are favorable, as Is shown by the quick
recovery of the plants after the old
growth has been cut. When the cause
Is lack of lime, food, or drainage the
plants die soon after cutting.
The treatment recommended for
“yellowing" is cutting of the fields re-
gardless of the stage of development
of the plants. The new growth gen-
erally comes along normally.

Sweet Corn Is Superior
for Feeding in Summer
In making plans for summer feed-
ing, the value of sugar com should not
be overlooked. In certain dairy sec-
tions where its worth Is recognized, It
Is not unusual to find almost every
dairyman planting a moderate-sized
patch with which to meet the mid-
summer period when pasturage Is
short and green feed at a premium.
In the choice of the variety to plant
It Is well to choose the later maturing
sorts such as Country Gentleman and
Evergreen. The earlier varieties will
mature as a rule before there Is real
need for them In dairy feeding. The
earlier varieties of sweet corn nre
lacking in stalk and leaf as compared
with the larger and later sorts.
Fowls in Orchard Kill
Many Injurious Insects
Any fruit which grows high enough
to be out of reach of the hens Is
benefited by their presence. Better
crops are produced and greater
growth Is In evidence. Some years ago
Cornell university made a test which
showed very conclusively that the
presence of chickens in an orchard did
more good towards killing injurious in-
sects than all the liquid sprays that
could be applied.
Fall Calving Desirable
on Many Dairy Farms
Under most conditions on the dairy
farm, says the Department of Agricul-
ture, fall calving Is desirable. The calf
receives milk for the first few months
of Its life, and when it Is ready to be
weaned from this food good succulent
pasture Is available. During the win-
ter It has learned to eat grain and
roughage while it has been getting
whole milk, skim milk, or milk substi-
tutes, nnd when grass comes It enn
make the change without getting a set-
nnck. There Is another advantage In
full calving, us the cow gives the
largest flow of milk at the season when
prices are usually the highest. Also
calves are at the right age so that If
well developed they may be bred to
calve In the fall. From the standpoint
of profits on milk, local conditions,
such as cost of feed and price of milk
in different seasons, should have con-

I shall never forget the agony of it.
I was looking at ribbons In a depart-
ment store. Like most women, I have
a habit of putting my purse on the
counter In front of me while examin-
ing merchandise. Not finding what I
wanted, I picked up what I thought
was my leather handbag and walked
a few steps away when I became
aware that my own hag was swinging
on my arm. Fearfully I looked to see
what It was that I had picked up, and,
to my horror, discovered I had picked
up another woman’s purse.—Exchange.

Without Good Pasture
Hogs Are Unprofitable
All through the summer season hogs
should have access to pasture. Sows
with pigs cannot do their best in
small, dry enclosures, and they will
not be profitable when so confined.
“It Is natural for hogs to exercise
in fields, root In the ground nnd
choose their ration from the variety
of plants to which they have access,”
says R. W. Clark of the Colorado Ag-
ricultural college. Man cannot furn-
ish a ration comparable to pasture In
all other respects A pasture Is the
first thing that should be provided In
pork production and pigs should have
constant access to It from the time
they are horn until disposed of.
