How much better, when you have a new home, to start right than to have
to correct errors afterward from former treatment with other materials, when

Marat. Repulsive in Person and Man

tractiveness to Women.
Jean Paul Marat, one of the leading
and most infamous figures of the
French revolution, was described by
a contemporary as "beyond any ques
tion the ugliest man in the whole of
Frni.ee—and not merely ugly, but pos
itively repulsive in person, habits and
manners." And yet, in his early years,
he was the most popular physician in
Paris, not because of supposed pro
fessional skill, but on account of his
attractiveness to women, the most
wealthy and beautiful women of
France daily crowding his consulta
tion rooms, pushing, almost fighting,
to get a word or perhaps, a single from
him. That he turned a cold shoulder
to their allurements seemed only to
inflame their ardor, and at one time
he contemplated flight, so embarrass
ing became their attentions. Even
when he contracted a loathsome skin
disease while hiding in the sewers of
Paris, fair women continued to adore

The review of the quarter's lessons
can be profitably made to center in
the service of Peter a»d John, or per
haps better, the activity and power of
the risen and ascended Christ mani
fest in the service of Peter and John.
Lesson 1. Peter Preaches at Penta
cost (Acts 2).
Peter proves that Jesus Christ arose
from the dead, ascended on high and
poured forth the Hoi* Spirit upon the
church; the evidence of it was the
unusual behavior of the disciples.
Lesson 2. Peter and John Heal a
Lame Man (Acts 3).
This remarkable miracle wrought in
the name of Jesus Christ proved that
though the Jews had crucified him, he
was now alive and continued his worl;
through the disciples.
Lesson 3. Peter and John Witness
ing of the Risen Christ Before the San
hedrin (Acts 4).
As a result the Sanhedrin took
knowledge that they had been with
Jesus, that is, his life and work were
being reproduced in and through them.
Being with Christ will: 1. Give an
experimental knowledge of him, so
that the life will remind one of Jesus.
2. Take away the fear of man. Pe
ter, who a little while ago quailed
before a Jewish maid, is undaunted
before the august sanhedrin. 3. Open
a man's lips. Peter said: "We can
not but speak the things which we
have seen and heard." What the heart
feels, the mouth must speak out.
Lesson 4. The Risen Christ Vindicat
ing His Church (Acts 1:5-10).
He passed judgment upon Ana
nias and Sapphira for their hypocriti
cal pretense of generosity. The living
Christ knows the intents of the heart;
nothing can be concealed from him.
Lesson 5. The Living Christ Saving
Men and Women in Samaria (Acts
8:4-25). His sanction of the preach
ing of the Gospel by Philip in Sa
maria is shown by the outpouring of
the Holy Spirit. Peter and John were
sent by the mother church to confirm
Leson 6. The Living Christ Healing
the Sick and Raising the Dead (Acts
That Christ Is alive is proved by the
vanquishing of the dreadful malady of
palsy and the retenanting of a corpse
by the departed soul. Nothing like
this had been known since the days
Lesson 7. The Risen Christ Reveal
ing Himself to a Gentile (Acts 10).
Peter testifies to Cornelius that
Jesus Christ died for sin and is to be
the judge of the quick and the dPad,
and that everyone who believes on him
will receive remission of sins.
Leson 8. Peter Is Delivered From
Prison Through the Living Christ
Sending His AngeT to Open the Doors
The church prayed for Peter's deliv
erance and the prison was opened. All
power is given him in heaven and in
earth; there is nothing too hard for
the living Christ.
Lesson 9. Peter Shows the Resur
rected Christ as the Head of tV
Church (I Peter 2:15; 11-25).
Because Christ is alive, those who
are joined to him by faith grow. Be
cause of the contact with him they are
able to maintain seemly behavior in
the various relations of life.
Lesson 10. Christ Is the Revealer of
God's Love (I John 4:7-21).
The proof that Christ is alive is the
love of Clod iif the hearts of those who
have been born again.
Lesson 11. Christ Is Alive Because
He Is Walking in the Midst of the
Churches (Rev. 1:4-18).
Lesson 12. In heaven, the crucified,
risen and glorified Christ will be the
center of worship. All glory and hon
or are ascribed to him because of his
marvelous work of redemption.

PULLETS MAKE BEST LAYERS
It Seldom Pays to Keep Hens for
Eggs After They Are 2/ z Years
Old—Young Fowls Favored.
There are people who have the
right variety of fowls, who house and
feed them properly, and yet who can
not obtain eggs early in the winter
because their fowls are too old. It
seldom pays to keep hens for laying
after they are two and one-half years
old; not that they will not give a
profit, but that younger fowls will
give a greater profit, says the United
States department of agriculture. A
great many poultrymen who make a
specialty of winter egg production
keep nothing but pullets, disposing of
the one-year-old hens before it is time
to put them in the winter quarters.
TT# tp-vl :
Flock of White Leghorn Pullets.
The champion of the girls' poultry
clubs of Mississippi keeps nothing but
Early hatched pullets, if properly
grown, ought to begin laying in Oc
tober or early November and continue
to lay through the winter. Yearling
hens seldom begin laying much before
January 1 and older hens not until
later. It is the November und Decem
ber eggs that bring the high prices.
The laying breeds should begin lay
ing when about from five to six
months old, general-purpose breeds at
six to seven months, and the meat
breeds at eight to nine months.
VARIETY OF FOOD FOR HENS
Fowls Easily Obtain Different Things
Necessary to Make Eggs and
Constantly feeding or two grains
bnly compels the fowls to eat more
than they ought to and make their di
gestive systems work too hard trying
to get all the different food elements
In sufficient quantity out of this mate
rial. By feeding a variety of food the
fowls are not obliged to consume so
great an amount and they can more
easily obtain the different things re
quired to maintain the body and make
eggs. . :
SIMPLE REMEDY FOR WORMS
Give Twenty Drops of Turpentine in
Milk or Water and Mix in Mash
for Morning Feed.
For worms In poultry give 20 drops
of turpentine for each 12 adult chick
ens; less for smaller chicks. Put that
amount In one quart of milk or water;
mix in mash in rooming. No other
feed; also put one teaspoonful of cop
peras in each gallon of drinking water.
POULTRY KEPT AS SIDE LINE
Hardly Any Activity of Modern Farm
ing Which Will Pay Better Than
Flock of Hens.
Properly developed and fostered,
poultrying is one of the most profit
able side lines in which most farmers
can become interested and, at present
there is hardly any activity of modern
farming which will pay better than
the maintenance and production of
