CORN CAN BE GROWN
ON CANADIAN PRAIRIES
Manitoba Is now commencing to
produce consldorablo com, chiefly for
feeding purposes. In soma cases,
whero tho crop can bo tnaturod Into
the dough stage, silos could bo usod
and would bo a profltablo Investment.
According to tho Farm and Ranch Itr
view, a correspondent visited a field
of corn In southern Manitoba on Sep
tember 28. Tho corn then was un
touched by troat and It stood on an
average eight and nlno feet In height.
Tho corn had dovoloped into tho
dough stage, and tho crop would easily
excoed 20 tons to tho acre. At many
experimental farms, tho sarao favor
ablo showing of tho corn crop has
manifested ltsolf. At tho Brandon ex
perimental farm this year several va
rieties, all vory good y4olders, matured
Into good silo corn.
Considering tho success with which
corn can bo produced, and tbo advan
tages to bo galnod by s'o producing it,
should not it receivo tho sorlous at
tention of tho westorn agriculturist?
Corn is successfully grown in tho
northern part of Minnesota in simi
lar soil and under tho same climatic
condition, and thcro does not appear
to bo any reason why like results
should not bo secured In westorn Can
ada. It Is the opinion of many Ameri
can farmers of experience that tho
corn belt is extending northward. Tho
pralrio provinces must gradually tako
up with mixed farming. Moro stock
on tho farms must bo raised, and In
consequence farming must to somo
extent bo diverted from grain growing
to other necessary crops. If crops
suitable for wintering cattle nnd espe
cially dairy stock nro to be grown,
why should not corn be one of these
crops? In Ontario nnd in tho United
States we find It forms tho main bulky
food for wintering beef and dairy cat
tle. They would not bo without this
profltablo plant. In fact, since Its In
troduction almost twice ns much stock
can bo retained on tho same amount
of land, besides considering its great
value for keeping tho land clean.
Somo may say that many crops that
can bo grown in Ontario and tho
States cannot bo grown here, but not
so with corn, even now we find scat
tered fields of corn In Alberta and

To bring sons to glory Is God's great
purpose in Jesus Christ. The words
"sons" should be emphasized, for God
first must call men to bo sous, and
after that bring them to glory even as
the epistle o tho Romans says: "If
sons, then heirs." IJy nature men uro
not God's sons in this sense, but be
come so by tho regeneration of the
Holy Spirit through faith In Josus
Christ. Have you experienced this
mighty and vital change? For they
only have tho hope of glory who thus
receive the spirit of adoption whereby
they can cry, "Abba, Father"
When the text speaks of Jesus
Christ bb the captain of our salvation,
a comparison Is drawn betweon him
and Joshua, who was tho captain of
the hosts of Israel In their entrance
Into Canaan. He was to lead them into
their inheritance under tho Abrahamic
covenant, but Jesus Christ leads us
into our inheritance under tho gospel.
In tho former caso only thoy perished
in the wilderness who either out of
lovo unto the flesh pots ofEgypt, or
through terror at tho hardships of tho
way refused to go up under their lead
er's command. And so In tho caso of
those who through faith havo become
sons of God, the'ro Is no doubt of ulti
mate victory hi the following of Jesus
Our captain was dedicated to his
work through sufferings, for that is
tho meaning of "perfect" In tho text.
It was often used among the heathen
to signify the initiation of a man Into
the mysteries of their religion in order
to become a leader of others in the
same religion. Sometimes these rites
were accompanied by much pain, and
tho Inspired writer employs the figure
to illustrate the sufferings of our
Lord. These sufferings wore of two
kinds. His life sufferings and his
death sufferings. In life he suffered
for righteousness' sake, that is through
sympathy with man, but great as this
was, it was very different from his
death sufferings. These were tho hid
ing of his Father's faco and tho awful
darkness of Calvary when ho boro
our guilt upon the accursed tree. To
some extent we may sympathize with
him in his life sufferings, but who
can know anything ot his death suffer
ings? As ono says, "man can paint
tho cursed tree, but who can paint
tho curse of the Lord that mado it so?
Man may descrlbo tho soldier's spear,
but not tho cup of wrath ho drained
to tho last drop."
And how tha mystery deepens as wo
read that It becamo God to do this.
It was not only right nnd proper, but
It behooved him to employ this meth
od in bringing many sons into glory
Ho could not do differently and accom
plish it, because of tho desert of sin
and the unchangeabloness of his Jus
tice He might havo suffered all men
to perish in their bIhb, but onco hav
ing, in love, determined to redeem
them, thoro was no other way in
which It could bo righteously carried
out Truth failed, and as Isaiah sayB:
"Tho Iord saw it, and la displeased
him that there was no Judgment. And
he saw that there was no man,
and wondered that thero was no inter
cessor; thoreforo his arm brought sal
vation unto him; and ills righteous
ness, It sustained him." Isaiah 59:
What Inference Follows.
If it became God to adopt this plan
to save us, who aro wo to question its
wisdom or necessity? Who aro we to
hesitate In bringing our convictions
and conduct into harmony with his
great purpose? And if tho object God
had was to bring sons to glory should
wo not earnestly inquire If wo aro
sons? It is said of Jesus Christ in
John's gospel (1:12) that1, "as mnny
ns received him to tliom gave ho au
thority to become tho sons of God."
Havo wo recolved him? Docs ho by
his blessed Spirit dwell within and
rulo us? I-ot uu not tako this for
grantod: let us bo assured of It by
tho testimony ot tho Word of God
and the answer of our experience.
