While keeping two distinct hrPPri . yvu.UJ uue yara without mix- mg me breeds seems difficult u t be accomplished easily and with satis factory results, as shown by the ac count of an experience just received from a New England poultry raiser. One of the kinds kept is a so-called egg breed, the, other being a general purpose variety of poultry. The method of preventing "crossing is as follows: One year, roosters of the egg-laying breed are retained and used for breed ing, no other males being kept. The First Prize White Rock Cockerel. following year roosters of only the general-purpose stock are kept. The difference in the color of egg's of the two breeds selected is so great that hatching eggs have always been select ed with a, certainty as to the breed laying them. The plan necessitates in troducing new males, but the advan tages of keeping the blood lines of two breeds separate, outweigh the slight cost of purchasing the males. The de partment of agriculture points out that when this method Is followed on two neighboring farms an exchange of roosters might readily be arranged. t REMODELING POULTRY HOUSE Many Stuffy Old Structures Can Be Rebuilt With Little Trouble Cost Is Small. Many farms have old style, closed- up poultry houses with poor light and ventilation; also old sheds and other buildings of little use for other pur- voses that can be remodeled or built over witn iittie aimcuuy into satis factory poultry houses, according to the United States department of ag riculture. A building of that kind usually can be made over for less than one-half the cost of constructing a new one, and If the work is well done should give Just as good results. Further more, the work performed In remodel ing the building serves as a good poultry club demonstration In poultry house construction. KEEP ALL PROFITABLE HENS Close Attention and Study Must Be Given to Each Individual Fowl Some Are Layers. Keep all hens as long as they are profitable. This calls for close atten tion and the study of each Individual hen, but it is work that pays.

Clean, dry litter, clean water pans and mash hoppers are essential to the health of good layers. .

LESSON TEXT Acts 9:32-43. GOLDEN TEXT The prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up. James 5:16. ADDITIONAL MATERIAL Luke S: 17-26; 8:40-66. PRIMARY TOPIC What a Kind Wom an Did. JUNIOR TOPIC-What Peter Did at Lydda and Joppa. INTERMEDIATE AND SENIOR TOP- IC The Beauty and Influence of an Un eiflsh Life. In order to grasp the significance of this lesson, we should recall the con dition which prevailed in vthe church as suggested In verse 31. Three char acteristics are outstanding: v.. Freedom From Persecution. Saul, the ringleader of the persecut ing forces, ; had just recently been con verted, thereby disorganizing their forces, allowing the church to enjoy a breathing spell. Thls period of rest did not result in its growing lazy, in different, worldly, and forgetful of God, but in" growth in grace and in the knowledge of the Lord Jesus. 2. Spiritual Growth arid Develop ment, j ' The real meaning of the word "edi fied" Is "builded up." This does not mean merely that the members were being instructed and comforted, but that strenuous efforts on the part ol the Individual members, as well as the body as a whole, were being made for the advancement of the divine life. The word "edify" contains the meta phor of some grand building or struc ture. As suggested by another, this metaphor Involves (1) a foundation. This is Jesus Christ no other dare be laid (I Cor. 3:12-16). (2) A contin uous progress. This means that a Christian's activities are purposeful and that the work hej undertakes moves forward with the proper prog ress. (3) Persistent effort. Thii means that the present day's work be gins the foundation upon which to morrow's work must be built. Thus day by day his life Is being raised higher and higher, as each separate round of material is being laid by strenuous efforts. (4) A completion. Finally the work is done, the build ing is completed, the top stone la brought forth and placed. 3. Outward Growth. Building up within the church causes the whole work to be admired and respected by those j without, In ducing them to come and Identify themselves with the cause. There can be no forward movement without un less there be a correpondlng move ment within. " , Our lesson today is the record ol two stupendous miracles. They are the greatest signs wrought since the day of Christ. The dreadful malady of palsy is vanquished, and a corpse is retenanted by the departed souL The occurrence here of this miracle Is In. keeping with the movements of the church at this time. ; The Lord had promised these signs as they went forth with the gospel message. They were given as encouragements to the disciples, to convince them that the gospel did not lose any of its power by being spread, but rather that ita power increased. As the church goes everywhere preaching the Word there will be a corresponding manifestation of power. j I. The Healing of Eneas (vv. 32-35). This man's needy condition appealed to Peter, just as men today should ap peal to us in their semi-dead state. L.lke his Master, Peter could not re fuse the needed help. In this he did not direct attention to himself, but confidently appealed to the power In the name of Christ: "Jesus. Christ healeth thee." The man who had kept his bed for eight long j years imme diately arose and made his bed. When, the Lord heals it is done instantly. Peter wisely kept this miracle from being the end by making it the means to the end. That end was the preach ing of the gospel. This brought most gratifying results, for "all that dwelt in Lydda and Sharon saw him and turned to the Lord." j II. The Raising of Dorcas (vv. 36 43). This woman was full of good works and alms-deeds which she did, not talked of doing. She was a practical Christian woman of the kind that gets down to the practical way of showing her love by doing deeds of helpful ness. Her death was a real loss, as was evidenced by the j mourning of those who had been helped. When this good woman fell sick and died the disciples sent for Peter. Peter I . it 11 X V. t A. LI. " .

Walmer . A MONG the numerous historical A structures which the British lP cherish because in them, they feel, is visibly Incorporated th prestige of England, not the least picturesque and Interesting Is Walmer cattle, on the ccast of Kent, the, offi cial home of the lord warden of the Clique ports. The lord wardenship is an older and more picturesque monument than Wal mer castle. The office of lord ' war den is far mxre ancient than his dwelling. About that office are gath ered the earliest activities out of which the British navy grew, writes Martin Conway in Country Life. The present functions of the lord warden may not be of any executive value as contributing to national defense, but, as, long as there Is a lord warden liv ing at Walmer, the small beginnings of the navy In a remote past remain vis ibly memorialized. Such a memorial Is more efficient than any pile of stone that the ingenuity of man could raise. Nfothing more vividly brings the past Into the present or enforces on living men the amount of their Indebtedness tq those from whom they descend than a living ceremonial recurrently per formed in accordance with an ancient and unbroken tradition. No one knows when the lord war denshiD was founded or by what earliest stages it came into being. Ne cessity enforced the defense of the southeastern coast f England, and to that; end the small maritime forces of the little ports along It had to be co ordinated. The original five ports were Hastings, Rtfmney, Hythe, Dover and Sandwich ; to these others were added, as well as Inland localities which' had to contribute financial aid Ultimately the jurisdiction extended round the coast from Seaf ord In Sus sex to near Margate In Kent. Importance of the Cinque Ports. Throughout the Middle Ages down to the time of Henry VII the Cinque ports thus enlarged and organized had to furnish the crown with nearly all the ships and men needed for naval purposes. The oldest existing charter dates from Edward I, but it refers to older documents as far back as the time of Edward the Confessor." Duties and corresponding privileges went on accumulating. Such an organization could not exist without a head, but his office was of correspondingly gradual growth. At one time it was an office of great power and importance. It was generally coupled with the gover norship of Dover castle. The lord warden was admiral of the ports. He had his court of chancery at Dover. He still retains the duty of appointing the judge of the admiralty court of the Cinque ports as well as the justices of the peace In the same areas; but his most important functions have bfrt come decorative; monumental and pic turesque, not, however, as aforesaid, unimportant. The maritime activity which led to the discovery of America and the be ginnings of a world commerce neces sarily made a great change in British naval affairs. Local levies of ships and sailors were bound to4)e replaced sooner or later by something In the nature of a national navy. The change is already apparent in the days of Henry VHI, and from that time the importance of the Cinque ports as the nation's naval base declined and with It the power of the lord warden. It is noteworthy that the erection of Wal mer castle dates from this period. It was built In the reign of Henry Vni along with other castles round the coast, such as the neighboring Deal and Sandown and the remote Lindis farne on Holy island in Northumber-? land. Previously the coast had been protected by a succession of earth works, the Great and Little Bulwarks, for Instance, within the parish of Wal mer. They had embrasures for guns, and were connected by communication trenches. Built by Henry VIII. The Kentish castles built by Henry VHI were completed about 1540 and placed under the control of the lord warden. The following description of. them Is compressed from Elgin : In the center Is the keep a circular tow er .containing a bomb-proof magazine for ammunition. It Is surrounded by bastions with fifty-two port-holes be low, commanding the encompassing moat. Tunnels or chimneys were con trived to carry off the smoke of the runs. There were larger embitsures interim Castle. for cannon near the upper part of the bastions. The entrance from the land ward side was by a drawbridge and strong machicolated gateway. Within each castle was a well. The bastion walls were 20 feet thick below and 11 feet above. Their architect was prob ably one Steven von Haschenpere. The garrison of Walmer consisted of a captain, lieutenant, two porters, ten , gunners and four soldiers. Less than a century later we read of Walmer castle as much decayed and threatened by the sea at high tides ; moreover, rain drives Into the. rooms and powder houses, the gate is decayed with loose stones hanging over," and so forth. It was presumably patched up. During the Civil war the castles changed hands more than once. Wal mer was besieged by Parliament troops in 1648, and held out for a month be fore surrendering. It was "much spoiled with tha granades," but the repairs were only estimated to cost 300. The castles continued to be of military. Importance throughout the seventeenth century. Additions by Lord Wardens. The first lord warden to make Wal mer castle his residence was the duke of Dorset, appointed In 1708 and. again in 1727. About 1730 he made various alterations and additions to the old structure to provide the necessary ac- commodation for a household; rurther considerable additions were made by Mr. Pitt, the earl of Liverpool, and Earl Granville. Apart from certain chambers belonging to the original military work and since merely adapt ed to the uses of domestic service, the oldest parts of the existing mansion are the chambers built by the duke of Dorset. Buck's view, dated '1735, shows the general aspect of this build ing. It is raised over the central mass of the castle and follows the outlines of its walls. There is nothing remark able about the architecture or the dec oration of the rooms. A small central hall, a longpassage leading through It, with others branching off as con venience dictated these are the ele ments of the plan. The plain stone wall Is pierced by oblong sash-windows and the crest of the wall is battlemented. . j The duke of Dorset's additions were mainly on the sea front, which re mains much as he left it. I believe the drawing-room was his a pleasant, sunny chamber-'-but Lord Granville added to it Mr. Pitt built the rooms over the southern rampart. Finally, in 1863. Lord Granville added a story containing thirteen rooms over the gate-house bastion. He also built the tower. The stone employed came from the demolition of Sandown castle. He added to the drawing-room, as an al cove, the little" room In which it Is as serted that Nelson and Pitt used t4 confer. . There Is nothing stately or impres sive about the aspect of the interior, but the irregularity of the plan adds to the effect of domestic comfort and pri vacy which pervades the house. One can easily understand how successive families have become attached 'to it. Externally there are several quite im pressive points of view, chiefly those which command the massive and pre cipitous walls rising from the moat. One of the walls, pulled down on the occasion of Queen Victoria's visit "to make a new dining-room, was soon afterward rebuilt. Talleyrand when he visited Walmer Insisted on sleeping In Pitt's room.
