When shipments were interrupted by the war, it was estimated
that there was enough Potash on hand in the United States to pro
vide two and three per cent Potash in mixed fertilizers for this
spring's trade. Some manufacturers had more than enough for
Since then minor sources of Potash have been fully utilized, and
additional shipments from the .usual source are still being received.
The supply is below normal, but this need not prevent farmers
securing some Potash in their fertilizers, nor should it lead farmers
to decide not to use fertilizers.
There is no reason to return to the out-of-date goods without
Potash, although some authorities may try to "wish" them on us.'
We have not used enough Potash in the post The largest annual
import of Potash was only one-seventieth of the Potash tah n from
A toil by our 1914 torn crop and only one-fifteenth of the Potash lost
every year in drainage water.
Spring crops use from two to ten times aa much Potash as Phos
phoric Acid. Get as much Potash in the fertilizer as possible. A
few firms are offering to furnish from four to ten per cent.
There is no substitute for Potash. It may be harder to get just
now, but POTASH PAYS.

FEEDING DAIRY CALVES
West Raleigh, X. C, March 8
Mr. W. H. Eaton, of the office ot
Dairy Experimentation, says: "Ol
all the animals on the farm there is
none which deserves better treatment
than the calf which is intended to De
kept' for the dairy, and yet on man.,
farms, I am sorry to say, there is
none which receives worse treatment,
Very often six or more calves will De
placed in the same pen or stall a
fed out of a wooden trough like so
many pigs, yet their owners von:
why they are so stunted."
Some experiments are now being
conducted with seventy-five calves on
the farm of Mr. Leonard Tufts at
Pinehurst, N. C, with a view to ascer
taining the most economical feed
calves intended for use as dairy cows,
and whether or not it pays to feed th
calves from time of birth or to buy
the cows. During the past month th
calves made an average gain of 36.25
pounds per calf at a cost of $4.26 for
the month. The cost which is ratlier
high has been further reduced D;,
placing the calves on pasture.

LESSON. FOR MARCH 21
JONATHAN AND HIS ARMOR
BEARER. LESSON TEXT I Samutl 11:1-13.
GOI.HKX TKXT-tn put on thp ar
mor nt liyht.-Kom.
Samuel's review of his life of integ
rity, his charge to the Israelites, God's
testimony of displeasure over their
persistent desire to have a king, and
Samuel's words of comfort and as
surance as found In chapter 12. form
an- interesting connection with last
Sunday's lesson. In chapter 13 we
have the record of Israel again in dis
tress and of Saul's folly in his assum
ing the priestly office (vv. 13, 14).
I. Saul's Distress, vv. 1-4. That
Saul's disobedience, just indicated, had
tncurred Cod's displeasure, we know,
ft evidently had its effect upon the
people also, for his army had dwindled
during the intervening fifteen or eight
een years, from S30.000 Uh. 11:8) to
a feeble B0 (v. 2). They were further
handicapped by a lack of weapons
teh. 13: lfl-23). Deserted by Jehovah,
by Samuel, Jehovah's priest, and by
nearly all of his enthusiastic subjects
(see 11:12) Saul was "in the uttermost
jart of Gibeah" hiding under a pome
granate tree (see vv. 11, 22 and IS: 6)
Tills may refer to his being at Rimmon
(Judges 20:43-47). In this retirement
Saul retains Ahiah (v 3) as priest,
thus keeping up the outward form of
worship. This priest is not referred to
as Jehovah's. He was a grandsoa of
Phixiehas. one of Ell's wicked' soiis.
and as such was not to be a successor
in the high priest's .office ,(ch. 2:30
26). Such an outward form of "dead
works" cannot take the place of a liv
ing faith. For Saul to consult the or
acle of the X'rim and Thuminiin worn
by the priest and later to call up 'fa
miliar, spirits, shows hi lack of spir
itual apprehension. The' references
made to Saul's conduct (chapters 12.
13) are an incjlcatiou of his character
and emphasize the psalmist's worda
as found In Ps. 119: 11,. 103. .
II. Jonathan's Victory, vv. 4-13. But
God had one leader to whom he could
speak, Jonathan, who is one of the
finest and most attractive characters
In the whole Bible. This episode la
among the most brilliant in the his
tory of the Israelltish nation. H was
a brave deed, and an evidence of that
triumphant faith shown so clearly in
Jonathan's dealings with David. There
seems to be a suggestion that Jona
than had lost confidence in bis fa
ther, for neither he nor the people
knew where Jonathan had - gone,
Verses 4 and ft vividly picture the
nature ot the location wherein Jona
than undertook, this feat. Jonathan
clearly counted upon the fleshly cov
enant sign as ground upon which to
expect help and victory over his ene
mies, who lacked such a sign (v. 6).
The army of the Philistines had been
divided into three sections (Ch. 13:
17), and this gave Jonathan his op
portunity. The garrison at Michmash
was on the opposite side of the ra
vine from Geba, Saul's headquarters.
Hidden by the cliffs it was Quite easy
to approach the Philistines. It Is an
Interesting and enlightening conversa
tion recorded as ensuing on that jour
Jonathan Tt may be that the Lord
will work for us: for there is no re
straint to the Lord to save by many or
by few (v. 6).
Armorbearer Do all that Is in thine
heart; behold I am with thee.
Jonathan We will pass . .
over, and will discover ourselves.
The test, as recorded in verses 9
and 10 was a real one and a reve
lation of Jonathan's shrewdness. Not
to be invited up by the Philistines
would suggest a desire they may have
had to cover up any weakness. To be
asked to "come" suggests their self
confidence. Today's Message. Two young men
of faith saved a nation sunk In despair
and disgrace. They inspired confi
dence in God and his promises. "Youth
for battles, old age for counsel," but
there are times that demand action
more than conference and considera
tion. Courage la only ot value, how
ever, when based upon much training,
devotion to God, the interests of oth
ers, and a clear vision. It is not a
mere flash In life's pathway. Courage
is contagious; Jonathan's feat set on
fire the soul of a nation. Read again
the roll of honor in the eleventh chap
ter ot Hebrews. The highest courage
is not physical but moral. This cour
age is open to all, but it is Intelligent
ly grounded upon God's sure revelar
tion In his word and in the person of
his Son, our Lord. "And his sjmor
bearer after him."
Jonathan did not go alone. Oa the
other hand it is not probable this young
lad would have cone up those rocks
had not Jonathan led the way; be
cause one went before him, he was
able to scale the fortress. God alone
knows the heights to which we may
attain, but does not ask us to go alone,
nor expect us to do the impossible.
The greatest heroes are not military,
they are Christian heroes, who put
on the Christian armor and whose
"strength Is the strength of ten be
cause their hearts are pure." Such
heroes are not dismayed at the con
tempt and gibes ot the enemy.

A Wonderful Healing Influence
in Kidney Troubles
A year and a half ago I was taken
with a severe attack of kidney trouble
that pained me to such an extent that
morphine had to be given me. Was
attended by a doctor who pronounced
it as Stone in the Bladder and pre
scribed Lithia Water. I took Lithia
water and tablets 'at some time and
received no relief from them. I stop
ped taking medicines for some time,
later having somo Swamn-Root in the
house I decided to try it and felt much
relieved. While taking the second bot
tle commenced to pass Gravel in urine
until I had passed in all at least nan
a dozen or more and have not suffered
the slightest since and in all have
taken one bottle and a half and feel
very grateful to Swamp-Root.
