CARING FOR MOULTING HENS
To Hurry Fowls Along They Must Be
Fed Liberally—Feed Them Mash
and Plenty of Grain.
Some people make a dreadful fuss
ibout the poor moulting hen, while
this moulting process is just as natu
ral as It la for a hen to live and
breathe and no more critical than the
laying stunt, provided the hens are
fed enough to keep up the waste of
the body and at the same time manu
facture the new feathers, says the
Field and Farm. The sooner the feath
ers are grown the sooner the eggs
will come and to hurry them along as
fast as possible the fowls should bo
fed liberally. Give them all the
maßh they will eat and a good feed
ing of grain at night. '
To many folks It looks like throw
ing away money to practice heavy
feeding while no eggs are coming in,
but this is one of the secretß of get
ting winter eggs. The moulting sea
son is the most critical period in the
life of a hen. Orowth of new feathers
is a heavy strain on vitality. As the
hen Is fed on the average ranch it
requires from two to four months to
recover from the effects of it
By giving the necessary materials
with which to make the feathers so
that a hen will not have to take them
from the tissues of her body, she will
bo ready for work as soon as she has
her new plumage and often before.
Pullets should be handled In the same
way. They are not yet fully devel
oped and will not begin to lay until
the amount of food they consume la
enough to support growth with a sur
plus to go into something else.
SECURE PROFIT FROM DUCKS
Eggs Can Be Bold at High Prices snd
There Is Always Good Demand
for Their Feathers.

eggs can he sold In the spring at

LESSON FOR AUGUST 31
ISRAEL AT SINAI.
LESSON TEXT—Ex. Vt-tL
GOLDEN TEXT—"Let u* have grace
whereby we may offer service well-pi—
Inr to Ood with reverence and aw*."—
Heb. 12:23 R. V.
The securing of water at Mount Ho
rob, the battle with the Amaleldtes
and the visit of Jethro, Moses' father
in-law, are the intervening events be
tween this and last week's lesson. A
suggestion as to the historicity of the
Exodus story is indicated in verse 1
of the lesson. "In the third month,"
these are not the words of an impos
tor but of the careful historian. The
place. Mount Sinai, was a familiar one
to Moses. It was at ths base of this
range or mountains, "at the back of
the desert," that he bad met and
received his commission from Ood.
(Ex. 3:1-12; Acts 7:30, SB.) Let us
consider the entire chapter.
The Highest Source.
I. "A peculiar treasure," w. 1-S.
Thus far there has been no law to
guide the Israelites except the yword
of Ood by the mouth of the prophet
As a nation they must have laws and
the proper time has now arrived to
promulgate those laws. But it is nec
essary to Impress the nation with the
source, the sacrednees and the
strength of law. Its source Is the I
highest—Ood; its sacredness Is in the
nature of its source—Ood; its strength [
is in the matter of their obedience.
"Moses went up" and "the Lord
called." When we seek the place of
separation from man and the place'
of seclusion with Ood we may expect 1
to hear him calling us. (Jas. 4:8.) j
Once before Ood had called to Moses
in this placo (8:4) and Moses was i
taken by surprise Now it is the man
of experience who Joyfully seeks the
Lord that he may receive a message
for his waiting people. Ood begins;
by reminding him of hie acta in Egypt
and at the Red Sea (v. 4) and by his
figure, "eagle's wings," he empha
sizes the fact that none else but Je
hovah wrought this deliverance. Even |
as the eagle bears Its young upon its
wings so has he borne out of Egyptj
this nation which is as yet but a babe.
It is yet to be, however, his peculiar
treasure and upon one condition only ,
—obedience. They are to be a king-1
dom of prloets, persons with a right
access to God, spiritual sovereigns
and a holy nation set apart to pre
serve the knowledge and worship of
Ood if they obey his voice.
"A peculiar treasure," on the con- j
ditlon of obedlenco Israel was his
peculiar people, how sad that they
ever departed from that lofty prlvl- j
lege. In this present age It is the
church which Is called out to be •
chosen generation, a royal priesthood,
an holy nation and the people for
God's own possession. (I Peter 2:9,
10 R. V.; Tit. 2:14; Epb. 1:11 R. V.;
Rev. 1:6; 5:10; 20:6 R. V.)
11. A sanctified people, w. 7-15.
That the Israelites might believe
Moses forever, Ood was to come and
converse with him from a thick cloud.
Before this took place, however, they
must cleanse themselves, set guards
about the mountain lest any draw too
near and be put to death (v. 12). Ood's
revelations to men are never made to
those who with lust in their hearts
cling to their sins.
Trumpst Not Material.
111. A wonderful revelation, w. IS
-25. Ood's descent was signalized by
every object of grandeur and awe
that Imagination can conceive. The
burning mountain suggests the con
suming fire to the transgressors of
the law about to be revealed. The
booming thunder and flashing light
ning amid the stillness of the wilder
ness would arouse universal attention,
and has not the law thus attracted the
attention of ages? The enveloping
cloud reminds us of another moun
tain experience, see Matt. 17:6. The
trumpet emphasises the supernatural,
that it was other than a material
trumpet blown by human breath. Read
in connection with this lesson Isa. 6.
Our Ood Is not alone a Ood of love
but he Is a being of Infinite majesty
and holiness, "a consuming tire," Heb.
lft:29. Too often ws presented
an emasculated Ood; we need to em
phasise. in this day* 'hatH sides of his
character. At least two locations are
pointed out, each of sufficient area
to acoommodate those gathered un
der Moses' leadership (v. 17). Though
he trembled (Heb. 12:21) yet he ap
proached with confidence, I John
8:21, this Interview with Ood. No
sooner had he gone a little way up
the mountain than he 1s ordered'to re
turn In order to keep the people from
breaking through the bounds to gaae,
rv. 21, 22.
Summary. The murmurlngs at Re
phldlm (eh. 17) seem incredible so
soon after the song of Meses (ch. IS)
and the supply of manna (ch. 16),
yet how soon darkness makes us for
get the brightness of bygone light, Im
minent danger to forget previous de
liverance. Man alone cannot cope
with these, emergencies; Ood alone
can provide. Ood's revelation and
declaration have In this dispensation
been repeated in almoet Identical lan
guage to the heavenly people, the
church of Christ (I Pet 8:9. His
methods, though seemingly stern, are
those of grace and mercy.
