Experiment Station Report.
The eighteenth annual report of the
Nebraska oxporimont station, just
published, contains some striking re
sults which should interest every
farmer and load him to send u request
to the experiment station, at Lincoln,
asking for bulletins published at this
station. The station makes the fol
lowing statements regarding a low of
tho results of experiments carried on
at the station.
The wintor wheat production of the
ntuto has increased 10,000,001) bushels
pur year, due largely to the work of
the experiment station.
Kherson oats, introduced from Rus
sia by the station, outyield the com
moil varieties by ton bushels per acre
in Central Nebraska. Experiments
with corn to secure better adapted
varities have- increased the yield
10,000,(100 to '20,000,000 bushels and will
result in still further increase
Experiments at the station prove
that land which has boon seeded to
alfalfa will grow from 10 to 2." bushels
moro corn por aero than other lands.
Apple scab has been almost perfect
ly controlled by spraying with Hor
deaux mixture Cedar rust on apple
trees has been controlled with Bor
deaux mixture. Straw mulches havo
greatly increasod tlio yield of garden
vegetables and improved tho quality
of cabbage, tomatoes, b mis and cu
cumbors Milk fever has been treated with
practically no loss, by inllating tho
udder of the cow with air when tho
ilrst symptoms of tho diseaso appear
ed. Feeding experiment havo shown
that alfalfa, hay and corn is tho most
cconouiienl'ration for fattening stoors.
This ration gave a prollt of $8 per head
more than whero corn and prairie hay
Extensive experiments in feeding
alfalfa hay with grain to hogs tiro now
in progress which show tho great
economic) value of alfalfa when feci in
ccmnoction'with a grain ration.
Eighteen thousand hand separators
liitvo been purchased by farmers in tho
lust six years, nnd the number of cows
used for dairy purposes lias increased
'3)0,000 in his time.
One hundred und fifty farmers' in

While we have but a few verses as-
lulled to us as a lesson from these all
Important portions of Scripture, the
Committee advise the reading and study
of the whole chapter, and this Is the
proper thing to do. In the last chapter
and In this the miracle at the begin
ning in but the Introduction to the
weitrhtv truths which follow. Among
the events which transp red In the life,
of our Lord between-the last lesson
and this the following are son.e of
more Important: 'Hie choosing of o
lVelve, the sermon on the plain, the
eallng of the centurion's servant, the,
lining of the widow's mm. the stilling'
of a storm on Galilee, the raising of
burled his body and went and told Je
sus, and the apostles gathered them
selves together unto Jesusuid told
Him all things, both whuUjIhcy had
done anil what they had taught. Then
He Invited them to come aside and
rest, for so many were coming and go
ing that they had no leisure even to
at (Matt, xlv, 12; Mark vl, 'M, ai).
This Is why they went over tho
sea of (.iiillice to a desert place, ac
cording to tho other evangelists, for
this miracle Is recorded by each of
the four, but It Is the only one which
all mention. Since the Spirit has re
corded It four times, lie must want us
to give very special heed to It. It
should be studied with the four ac
counts side by side, as In a harmony of
the gospels. Taking the whole sixth
chapter of John, In which our lesson Is
found, we notice that our Lord made
the miracle the occasion of a great dls
course on the bread of life and the
necessity of our appropriating 111m as
such, receiving Hlui as the Christ, the
Son of the living God (verses 25), 47,
63, 57, 00). In each of the previous
chapters the symbol Is water, but here
It 1b bread, the bread of lire, the true
bread from heaven; but, whether living
bread or living water, it is Christ Him
self who Is set forth by these emblems.
These 5,000 suggest the whole hun
gering, perishing world, perishing for
lack of the bread of life, and. while
the Lord Jesus Is full of compassion
for them and would have them know
of the kingdom of God and His power
to heal them all, the disciples of Christ
are rather inclined to send them away
or let them care for themselves. Tho
Lord says, "Give ye them to eat," and
to my mind this would be the best
Golden Text for this lesson, but thero
Is many a Philip who ayn, "If we had
that which we certainly have not wo
might do a little toward feeding them,"
and there Is many an Andrew who
says, "TJil Is the sum of what wo
nave, and It Is so small that it is abso
lutely useless to think of doing any
thing with It." Compare Luke Ix, 11-13,
With verses 5 to 0 of our lesson.
Let us watch our Lord working nnd
see how eaBlly and beautifully and
abundantly the multitudes are fed.
They are made to sit down in compa
nies on the grass, of which there was
an abundance. The lad's live loaves
and two llshes, which Andrew thought
so Inslgulticant, are placed In our Lord's
bonds, and He, looking up to heaven,
gave thanks, blessed and brake them
and gave them to the disciples, and the
disciples to the multitude, as much as
they would, and they did all eat and
were filled, and twelve baskets were
filled with what remained after all had
aten heartily. Now, Philip, what aro
you thinking about? Do you recall the
wilderness Ktory of the millions who
were fed every day for so many years,
and do you wish that you had not talk
ed so foolishly about what -00 pence
might do? And, Andrew, are you sor
ry that you did not know your Mas
ter's power when you spoke so dispar
agingly of the loaves und fishes? Well,
beloved, is It not truly captivating to
watch our Lord doing His mighty
works, whether In Gen. 1 or llev. xxl
or at the Bed sea or the Jordan or In
tbe wilderness, whether feeding thou
sands or healing a little girl, winning
a rich ruler or a poor sinful woman?
But now notice that, hb Dr. Elder
Cummlng says, this miracle depended
upon the surrender of a single person. i
That lnd was aBked to give up to Christ
all that he hud. Our Lord had power
to feed that multitude In many ways,
but this particular miracle depended
upon this boy's surrender. Our Lord
Will without fall, complete Ills church,
save Israel and till this earth with His
glory, but how much He will use you
to that end depends upon your whole
hearted surrender to Him of all you
are und have. :
In the next portion of this chapter
or Lord is alone on a mountain pray
ing, and tho disciples are in the boat
en the sea, tolling in rowing against
a contrary wind. And this Is very sag
gcstlvo of this present ago when our
Lord Is at the right hand of tho Father
making Intercession for us und wo aro

There In no reason to fear nor be tils
couraged, for lie cannot fall, and He

was at Passover time (verse !), and
there Is no life for the perishing apart
from the blood, without which there 1b
no remission of rIiis (Ileb. Ix, '22). Who
will tell of It to those who never heard?
