A HOG COT GOOD FOR
SUMMER OR WINTER
A'Shapcd Structure Which Is Equipped with a Door and
a Ventilating System.
The A-ulinpcd hog cot Is adapted
lo both Hummer tind winter condi
tions, it has a permnncnt floor, a
door in each end, and a ventilating
system, it Is constructed by nailing
Inch boards on six joists, two Inches
by four Inches, eight feet long for
the lloor. Uencath the Joists ate
nailed thrco stringers, two Inches by
six Inches eight feet long, which serve
as runners for moving tho house. Next
Ib spiked a piece two Inches by eight
Inches, nine feet four Inches long, at
tho ends of the Joists, having the bot
tom of the two Inch by eight Inch oven
with tho bottom of the Joist which
will allow It to project above tho lloor
three Inches. It will also extend out
seven Inches nt each end. This two
Inch by, eight Inch forms n plate to
which tho rafters and roof boards aro
nailed. The seven-Inch extension of
tho plato at the ends supports the low-
A roar door, Identical in slzo with
tho front door, Is held In place by
cleats nailed across It on the Inside
and by buttons fnstened on the out
side. This door Is not opened regu
larly, but piovldes ventilation In sum
mer and aids In handling sows at far
rowing time. Above tho rear door Is
a smnll sliding door, 8x12 Inches, to
admit light and air. '
Another Important featuie of this
house Is the ventilator, which Is a
small cap covering n hole at the top
and the center of tho ioor. The hole
Is inado by sawing off opposite ends
of two roof boards and covering It
with a cap bo arranged ns to leave
openings three Inches by 12 inches on
each side of the roof. This Is sufll
clent ventilation for two or three ani
mals when alt tho doors are shut, and
If more ventilation is desired it can
easily be secured by opening tho small

2xS's, besides strengthening tho house,
raise tho rafters and roof boards

pieces 1x12 In., 14 feet long, for cuds;)

pieces 2xG in., 8 feet long, for stringers'
and 4 pieces 1x12 in., 10 feet long,1

The ground plan shows above is for
a stable 44x70 foot. Tho arranf,"jment
gives three box stnlls in each end,
which can, if desired, bo arranged into

Comment and Suggectlve Thought,
"With this pennon wo must com

the Gentiles (Acta 10::M-13)."
Peter's object was to provo that
Jobus or Nazareth was their prom
ised Messiah, whom they were expect
ing. Tho reasoning of I'clcr was con
clusive and unanswerable. Stated In
brief modem form It was as fol
lows: 1. What has taken placo In your
presence Is exactly what your proph
ets foretold would characterize the
Messianic times for which you aro
hoping. Turn to the prophet Joel,
nnd you will sec that both what
has been done to the disciples and
the things you aro Buffering under tho
Roman yoke are tho fulfillment of
Joel's picture of tho times.
2. Jesus of Nuzareth fufllllcd tho
prophecies concerning tho expected
Messiah deliverer, as many of you
have seen nnd experienced. God In
dorsed and npproved him "by mira
cles and wonders and signs."
S. Moreover, God reversed your
wicked work by raising him from tho
dead, according to your Scriptures. Ho
Is not dead, but living.
4. Wo nrc witnesses of tho fnct of
C. Another proof thnt ho Is living
Is tho gift of tho Holy Spirit. "Ho
hath shed forth this which yo now
see and hear."
Peter's hearers wore convicted of
alii and Its danger. V. 37. "They wero
pricked in tholr hearts." Tho Greek
for pricked means "pricked with a
sharp point Intensely, deeply." "For
tho word of God Is living, and ncttvo,
and sharper than any two-edged
sword, and piercing even to tho divid
ing of soul and spirit . . . and quick
to discern tho thoughts and intents of
tho heart," for "all things nrc nnked
and laid open berore tho eyes of him
with whom we have to do." Heh.
"Tho sense of sin Is the plowshnro

Tho Second Duty. Hcllcvlng In
Jesus ns Master, Messiah, King, Sav
iour, nnd Guide u faith which trusts
tho whole life to his guidance and
control. This Is Implied In tho re
qulroment to bo baptized.
The third duty was to confess Christ
publicly, openly, by baptism; that they
henceforth aro his disciples for Hfo
and death. It was like taking an oath
of allegiance when one becomes a cit
izen of a country.
This picture of the early church Is
so attractive, so beautiful, so Ideal,
that somo commentators have folt
that It was Idealized by lato writers,
and wns not literally true. Hut ns a
matter of fact, It has boen repeated
over nnd over again for short spaces
of time. Our own eyes have seen It.
V.44. "All that believed . . . had all
things common." They wero mem
borB of one family and hold things In
common,Just as mombors of a family
do. Everything was for tho good of
nil. No one, "Bald that anything was
his own," but all was for tho uso of
ftionds and of whatever Christian had
Oriental Light. It. Talbot Kelly,
spenklng of tho Bedouin of tho desert,
onys: "Conducting mo to my tent, ho
ndded: 'This houso is yours, and all
It contains; do what you will with It,
and with us, your servants.'" Cen

Individuals did not give up njl their

It was ono expression of an eternal
prlnclplo," "that' all possessing goods
and Industries aro to bo consecrated

(Matt. 25:14-30; Luko 13:G-9), hut

to servo humanity, or oven tho poor."

When shown positive and reliable proof that a certain
remedy had cured numerous cases of female ills, wouldn't
any sensible woman conclude that the same remedy would
also benefit her if suffering with the same trouble ?

We will pay a handsome reward to any person who will
prove to us that these letters are not genuine and truthful
or that cither of these women were paid in any way for
their testimonials, or that the letters arc published without
their permission, or that the original letter from each did
not come to us entirely unsolicited.
What more proof can any one ask ?
For 30 years Lydia E. Plnlclinm's Vcfrotnblo
