BANK OF RAMSEUR 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 these percentages. 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 There is no reason to return to the out-of-date goods without Potash, although some authorities may try to "wish" them on us.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 past. The largest annual Import of Potash was only one-seventieth of the Potash taken from the soil by our 191 4 corn crop and only one-fifteenth of the Potash lost every year in drainage water. Spring crops use from two to ten times as 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. CERMAN KALI WORKS, Inc, 42 Broadway, New York Chicago, MeCormick Block Atlanta, Empire Blag. New Orlean.

Peters, assistant secretary of the treasury. As a member of the ways and means committee of the house, Mr.- Peters aided in framing the bill. He predicts that during the fiscal year ending June 30 there will be col lected in customs approximately 2220,000,000 and $80,000,000 in in come and corporation tax. Notwithstanding the disturbed con ditions due to the war," he said, "the total revenue under the Underwood law will be about $300,000,000. "The estimate of the treasury de- partment indicates an expected fall ing off in revenues for the current fiscal year from customs of $100,- 000,000 on account of the war an es timate which the receipts so indicate to be not far from correct. "The falling off is undoubtedly due to the effect of the war on commerce generally and particularly of imports from these countries which ara man ufactured articles subject to the high er rates of duty and the value of the imports from France, Germany, Aus tria, Hungary and Belgium has de. creased approximately $70,000,000 as compared with the previous year. "Up to the beginning of the war, the records show, the Underwood bill produced all or more of the revenue expected of it at the time of its crea tion. It was estimated that under the new tariff the receipts from customs for the fiscal year ending June MO, 1914, would be $270,000,000 and the income tax receipts $95,000,000. "The actual collections for that pe riod were, from customs $292,128,527 and from incomes $71,381,275, a total of $363,701,289. The receipts from customs, in other words, were more than $22,000,000 in excess of the es timate, while the receipts from the income tax were $24,000,000 less. "That the receipts from the income tax were below the normal is due to the fact that many incomes are de rived from interest and dividends payable on July 1 and January 1, and on such incomes the tax accrued for only four months of the year, from March 1 to July 1. The amounts of such interest and dividends payable on January 1, 1914, were not includ ed in the returns for the fiscal year but will be included in the returns for the present fiscal year."

GH.rKX TKXT-rvhnM. to r,l v Is bet ter tlmti Ku-iiiii'e. 1 Sumuil ID Jonathan's victory (ch. 14) brought with It a sinnins on the part of the hungry, harassed Israelites in that they ate of the spoils "with the blood" 114:31, .12: Lev. 3:17, 7:20). In the emergency Saul erected "the first al tar that lie built unto the Ixird" (cli U:"), a rather dilatory act on thu part of a Gnd-nnolnted king Saul hud resorted to the subt'erfnsp of com manding the people "to roll a great stone," i.e.. cut the thruats of the uni mal.i of which they had eaten that they mtelit bleed, and thus be an evi dence that the animals had died be fore belli;; eaten. This the people did, fearing Saul, but having no scruples In transgressing God's commands. These same people rescued Jonathan from the foolish vow of Saul, for It was his faith and valor that had chief ly brought about the victory. I. God's Sorrow, vv. 10-12. Samuel had first revealed God's purpose in making Saul king, and likewise first declared God's purpose to dispose of Saul (v. 10). Saul's actions (vv. 1-9) had stamped him as being no longer worthy of God's confidence. The word "repenteth," meaning "to sigh" (v. 11), denotes a change of feeling due to Saul's actions and not to any change in the character, purpose or desires of Good. God was sorry that Saul had proved himself unworthy. A half-way obedience of God's com mand only heightened his guilt. "Whatever moral difficulties seem to lie, for a later age, in Saul's commis sion against Amalek. there were none such for him" (Vaughn). Man's re pentance Involves a change of mind and purpose. In Saul's case God re pented, changed the instrument of his execution, because of the change of circumstances and relation. God is ever the same; it Is man alone who changes. Saul had given Samuel cause for anger (v. 11 R. V.l, but ho did the wise thing in taking It to God in prayer. Arising early the next morning Samuel hastened to acquaint Saul with Jehovah's message. It is remarkable of how many of the great men of the Hible it is said that they rose early, Abraham, Gideon, Joshua, Job, Jacob, Moses, etc., not to forget our Lord Jesus. II. Samuel's Rebuke, vv. 13-19. It must have been a striking scene when the aged Xazarlte prophet faced the proud but recreant king. A guilty conscience is often covered by a great show of piety (v. 13), but such acts cannot stifle the conviction of the heart nor deceive the righteous judge. Sin proclaims itself even as Samuel's sharp question brought conviction from the lips of Saul (v. 14; Prov. 28:13). Saul thought to deceive Sam uel by using a falsehood (v. 15). The only safe course is to confess our sins (Ps. 32:15; I. John 1:9). There is an interesting suggestion in the way Saul uses the impersonal "they" and "we" in verse 15, as if to lay thu guilt, of his acts upon others. It is easy for the sinner to blame others and seek to minimize nis own guilt (Uoin. 14:12). Verse clearly in dicates why Saul and the people had spared the best of the cattle. To usa a part only for God and the rest for self in direct disobedience to God's rights or the rights of others is to incur his righteous wroth (vv. 22, 2:!). III. Saul's Self-Rejection, vv. 2C-i3. God se( Saul aside because he had rejected the right and chose the wrong. Face, to faco with his sin iTaul could not dodge the Issue. Sam uel's "wherefore" iv. IMl must have aroused Saul's guilty conscience, it is a question which t-hould reach every tempted soul. Samuel charncteri.'.ed kind's sin as being due to stubborn ness, rebellion, disobedience and a re jection of God (v. 19). Again Saul seeks to evade his responsibility (vv. 20, 21). Then Samuel speaks plainly (v. 22) comparing his sin of disobedi ence with witchcraft, stubbornness, Iniquity and idolatry. Plainly he tells Saul, "Recause thou hast rejected tho word of the Lord, he hath also reject ed thee from being king" (v. 23). Driven thus to a corner Saul made a confession of his guilt (v, 24) but spoiled it all by acknowledging that he had greater fear of the people than of God. This is Easter Sunday, our reproach has been removed, not at Gilgal but on Calvary. The unchanging God hates sin, which Is unchangeable, has condemned it on the Cross that tha guilty sinner may live. The persistence of sin, the un changeableness of God and his un yielding hatred of sin are met by the culmination ot Easter for, 'T!y the obedience of one shall many be made righteous" (Rom. 5:19). The whole root of Saul's trouble was his attitude towards the word of God. Every man's destiny hinges upon what he does with the Living Incarnate Word. The resurrection of Jesus is tha seal of his authority, the evidence of his power and our eternal salvation depends upon what we do with him, John 3:16; 13:36, TALKING BETTER TIMES A recent dispatch to the Charlotte Observer from Washington, D. C, says: "It may be a dream, but everybody is talking better times, and that sort of thing helps. The money which is now tucked away in old socks and other resorts used in time of fear may reappear and put the wheels of industry humming, if the prosperity statements keep coming. The people of the United States are just bginning to see tne real size of the blow that struck the country when the European war broke out last summer. "The most significant thing said in Washington recently came from John H. Fahey, of Boston, at a meeting of the members of the board of directors) of the Chamber of Commerce of tha United States, which has grown into a big and powerful organization. When asked for an expressiin ot opinion, Mr. Kahey declared that conditions are improving. " 'The resumption of business ac tivity and improvement of conditions which began as soon as we could re adjust ourselves after the outbreak of the war is continuing steadily accord ing to all of the evidence that comes to my attention and the movement should quicken a little faster now,' Mr. Fahjy went on. 'The opinion of the average man about business con ditions is generally governed by his personal point of view, his tempera mental characteristics and the condi tion of his own business. However, the concensus of all expressions which come to me is that in almost every di rection things are now mending rap idly. As a result of the war, it is in evitable that there will be marked slowness in some lines, but more men men are bing put to work every week and the industrial output is increas ing. "President Wilson and those associ ated with him in the Washington Ad ministration believe that the worst of the depression that came with the Eu ropean war is over, and the tendency from this time onward will be upward instead of downward. "Everybody is hopeful. Almost every unbiased person is talking bet ter times." WHOOPING COUGH Well everyone knows the effect of Pine Forests on Coughs. Dr. Bell's Pine Tar-Honey is a remedy which brings quick relief for Whooping Cough, loosens the mucous, soothes the lining of the throat and lungs, and makes the coughing spells less severe. A family with growing chil dren should not be without it. Keep it handy for all Coughs and Colds. 25c. at your Druggist. HOHENLINDEN On Linden, when the sun was low, All bloodies lay the untrodedn snow, And dark as winter was the flow Of Iser, rolling rapidly. But Linden saw another sight When the drum beat at dead of night, Commanding fires of death to light The darkness of her scenery. By torch and trumpet fast arrayed, Each horseman drew his battle blade, And, furious, every charger neighed, To join the dreadful revelry. Then shook the hills with thunder riven, Then rushed the steeds to battle driven, And louder than the bolts of heaven: Far flashed the red artillery. But redder yet that light shall glow On Linden's hills of stained snow, And bloodier yet the torrent flow Of Iser, rolling rapidly. 'Tis morn; but scarce yon level sun Where furious Frank and fiery Hun Shout in their sulphurous canopy. The combat deepens. On, ye brave, Who rush to glory, or to the grave! Wave, Munich, all thy banners wave, And charge with all-they chivalry! Few, few shall part where many meet The snow shall be their winding sheet, And every turl' beneath their feet Shall be a soldier's --Thumps Campbell.
