BASIS FOR PORK PRODUCTION One Source of Failure Is That Many Follow It as Speculation Rather Than Business. (Prepared by the United States Depart merit of Agriculture.) Recent heavy slumps in the hog market, as well as the high prices of corn, have caused hog raisers In va rious parts of the country to reduce the number of sows in their herds, ac cording to reports received. But hog raising on the farm should be made a stable, regular business, department specialists believe. The man begin ning to raise hogs should -resolve to follow it year In and year out. regard less of the price he may obtain for his hogs or the cost of the feed which he converts Into pork. Llse every other farming activity, pork production has Its ups and downs, but, according to long-time averages, the farmer who sticks realizes a fair and dependable profit, the specialists declare. One source of failure Is that too many follow It as a speculation rather than as business.

"It might," I replied, "if It would be gin to train laymen for work among children, If it understood the meaning of the boy scout movement. If It poured its money into training men and women rather than into bricks and mortar: in other words, if it ac cepted the challenge of the children, as Doctor Gardner so finely puts It, and brought the training of children out of the basement into the chief place in the life of the church. "Moreover, never forget this: The .surest way to the heart and life of the parent is through an interest in the child." All Should Own Homes. From the national standpoint, It is most desirable thaf every citizen should own his -home. - The proper education of the child needs the sanctity of the home and the future of our country de pends upon the average citizen doing his or her duty "to train up a child in lite way he should go.-and when he is ld he will not depart from it."

Operations of this character are never beneficial for any business. Because of the recent decline In the hog mar ket It does not necessarily follow that the selling price of the pigs that will be raised from the sows bred this fall will not be satisfactory. The pig's of this fall will not be ready for a year and untold changes may come about.

There is so much of uncertainty in industrial circles, so much of discon tent and of the spirit of waiting in the .national atmosphere, that It Is quite understandable that scoutmasters who have devoted tremendous energy to their work through the war period should become a little more deliberate about their scout work this year.- This tendency is expressed natio ally in the delay of innumerable rr reglstratlon blanks. Energy is the secret of a prompt re registration whteh sustains the exten sion work of national headquarters, maintains the records of the boys who will some day want the Veteran Scout badge and contributes so largely to the appreciation which the boys feel or do not feel regarding the opportunity to be a part of a certain troop., . .

Peter protested that he had never eaten any unclean thing. God replied: "What .God hath cleansed, call not thou common." This vessel let down from lieaven and tak en back indicated that both Jew and Gentile were accepted on high. 2. Messengers from Cornelius (w, 17-22). Peter was greatly perplexed over what he had seen, but not for long; for messengers from Cornelius made Inquiry at the gate for him. The spirit informed Peter of the matter and bade him go, nothing doubting. 3. The meeting of Cornelius and Pe ter (vv. 23-33). (1) Peter took si witnesses along (v. 23). He had the good judgment to know that on a mat ter of so great importance he must have witnesses. This was proved at the Jerusalem council in the consider ation of the question of the reception of the Gentiles into the church .(11:1 18). (2) Cornelius waiting for Peter (v. 24). He called together his kins men and near friends. (3) Cornelius about to worship Peter (vv. 25, 26). Peter repudiated this act and protest ed that he was but a man. The true man of God not onty dislikes, but re fuses to be worshiped. (4) The re ciprocal explanation (w. 27-33). Pe ter explained to him how God had taken from him his Jewish prejudice and asked that Cornelius state the purpose of his having sent for him. Cornelius explained how God had ap peared unto him and instructed WirM to send for Peter. m III. Peter's Sermon (w. 34-43). 1. The introduction (w. 34, 35). He showed that God is no respecter of persons, but that in every nation those who fear God and work righteousness are accepted of him. 2. The discourse (w. 36-43). In the discourse he touches briefly upon the mission of Jesus, showing that by means of his baptism and anointing with the Holy Spirit he was quali fied for his work as mediator. He then exhibited the work of Christ (1) In his life (w. 36-39). (2) In his death (v. 39). (3) In his resurrection (w. 40, 41). IV. The Holy Spirit Poured Out (vv. 4448). This was a new Pentecost. As the Gospel was enteringnpon its widest embrace the Spirit came In new power. 7VW '"' Power of Faith. Christianity has its best exponents in the lives of the saints.
