TIiIh event probably occurred H. C.
1012, In tho twenty-Bucond year of
David's reign. It would bo a Rood
plan to iihhIkh to vnrloUH pupils hucIi
BUbJucto as: (a) What thu urk sob
nnd how It camo to bo loot; (b)
Whero It had boon Blnco tho da'8 of
JobIiuii; (c) What occurred to It whllo
In poBBcsBion of tho l'hlllstlnus; (d)
Who vns Obud-cdotn? (o) Uzzltih? (f)
Mlchal? (b) How Jerusalem catno to
bo tho ocut of government.
I. Tho Ark Recovered, vv. 1-5. David
realized that whllo Cod wiib tho
God of all tho IrlbcB, Htlll thero waB
no vlBlblo rellKlouB center; thoro was
tho coiiHcquunt danger of confound
ing tho locnl placo of worship with
that of sotno local Haul (god) nnd the
poBfllblo breaking up of tho national
rellanco upon Jehovah. Whero Klr-Jath-Jonrlm
wan la not definitely
known, hut perhaps it wuh eight or
ten miles west of Jerusalem. Tho ark
had lodged hero for perhaps soventy
years. David and tlioy that were with
him followed tho cxnmplo of tho Phil
Istlncs (I Ham. G: 1-18) In their tnodo
of transferring tho ark rather than to
have it carried upon tho shoulders of
tho prleBts (Josh. 3:3). Preceded by
"David and tho hotiso of Israel," 1. o
leaders of tho peoplo and all others
present, thoy began tho return Jour
ney from tho house of Ablnndab.
II. Tho Ark Retarded, vv. 6-11.
They had reached ono of tho opon
places used as a threshing lloor whan
tho oxen slipped and tho cart was
shaken. Uzzluh, ono of tho two into
whoso charge It had been placed, laid
hold of tho ark to keep it from fall
ing. Why wus ho slain therefore? Wo
havo already suggested tho reason.
How to carry tho ark was plainly writ
ten (Num. 4:5-12; 7:9). Neglect of
(lod'u word gets many well-moaning
peoplo Into trouble, along with their
friends, also. Tho ark was tho sym
bol of God's presence, und men had
to bo taught to revere his holy name
and his glorious presenco (sco last
clauso v. 2), Uriah's sin was tho sin
of irreverence Ho seems not to
havo sensed tho Invisible God in his
vislblo abode. Tho result struck ter
ror Into tho heart of David and tho
peoplo,, nnd tho ark was left In tho
liouso of Obed of ICdom for a period
ot threo months. David's "Improved
plan" was a proved failure.
III. The Ark Restored, vv. 9-19.
David, by thus abandoning the urk,
HeeniB to havo resented tho judgment
of God, yet bo must havo realized
that God had milllclent causo for his
'icts. Tho urk is a type of Christ,
who is Immanuel, God with us. Tho
ark contained tho luw of God, as
Christ enshrined tho will of his Fa
ther. Over tho law was tho blood
sprinkled mercy seat whore God met
his peoplo (Ex. 2G: 18-22). In Christ
wo tlnd our morcy seat whero wo
meot God. Though this ark brought
Judgment to Uzzlah It brought bless
ing to Obcd-odom (v. 12). Even so
Christ brings Judgment or Joy accord
ing to our treatment of htm. Obed
cdom so piously cared for tho urk that
both ho and his household wero rich
ly blessed. If Christ Is really In our
hearts wo will bo blessed, and Christ
IV. The Psalm of Praise, Ps. 24.
In tho Jowlsh synagogue this psalm
is recited at tho currying back of tho
book of tho law to Its purine, nnd In
tho Greek church at tho consecration
of tho church. Tho twenty-second
psalm prcsontB tho suffering Savior;
tho twenty-third presents tho risen
Savior as tho shepherd caring for und
lending his sheep, nnd tho twenty
fourth tolls of tho reigning, glorilled
Lord. Tho whole earth Is Jehovah's
(v. 1) nnd no Incident hotter teaches
tho converse, viz., that ho is God of
tho earth and not a mere tribal deity.
Ho "fouuded" and "established" It,
and all "tho fullness," and "thoy that
dwoll thoreln" nro his by creatlvo uud
redemptlvo right. Since wu belong
to him wo owe him worship und serv
ice nnd a servunt is ono who
"stands" v. 3). Tho conditions of fel
lowship with Jehovah aro "clean
hnudB and a puro heart" (v. 1), those
who deal with honesty and reverence.
"Vanity" nnd "Idolatry" aro frcauoutly
Tho first and tho fourth condition
relate to others, tho second und tho
third to one's lnnor life (seo 1 John
1:6, 7). t
Tho reward of acceptablo worship
nnd servlco 1b "blessing from tho
Lord" (v. G). In vorso eight wo llnd
Israel's grent namo for God Hrst used
in tho Psalms.
Ho is gloriously strong, this Lord
of the hosts of heaven.
In 1 Cor. 2:S, Jesus who was cruel
lied Is called tho "Lord of Glory." Even
so our coming King Ib "strong und
Mighty" and will prove himself
"mighty in battlo" (seo Itov. 19:19-21).
Wheu he, tho King of Glory, leads
captivity captlvo all of his follow orB

At least two crops can be cut in uti

cnlly than nny other rrop, and conse
quently less feed Is required. Its
reeding value Is superior to pralrlc
hay, timothy or any of tho known
sorghums, hut not equal to alfalfa. It
can bo made to servo as u pasture
crop, with good results. Its ability
to make a good crop under conditions
which no other crop except possibly
feterltu can withstand should not bu
overlooked. Appaiently theru Ib only
ono caution to be exercised In taking
hold of Sudan grass, and that Is to
look out Tor Johnson grass, which la
very similar in appearance, uud which

DRY FARMING HERE TO STAY
Many Farmers Have Proved That It
la a Success Thousands of Acres
of Land Still Available.
Dry running has cumo to stay. Many
rurmers huve proved Mint It la a suc
cess. Some havo railed, It. Is true, but
their fulluro has been due to one ot
two causes cither the land was poor
ly adapted to dry fanning, or improper
methods of farming wero practiced.
Thero Is considerable laud In tho
scmlnrld regions Mint Is not good dry
farm land, nnd probably nevor can bo
successfully dry farmed. Hut on tho
other hand, there aro thousands of
acres of splendid land yet nvallablo
which aro capable of producing prollt
able crops under scientific dry fnrm
It Is or the utmost Importance, how
ever, to rollow out theso methods most
carefully. Often a fence, or only a
division line, separates tho man who
Is dry farming nt u profit from tho
mnn who Is losing money, ir you will
study tho difference carefully you will
Uud that one Is moro thorough than
thu other In his operations. Ho plows
deep und at tho right time, ho keeps
down weeds, maintains a mulch to
conserve molsturo und selects good,
clean seed of tho right kind.
DEEP PLOWING IS ESSENTIAL
Many Farmers Do Not Understand
Necessity of Preparing Good Seed
Bed Packer Is Needed.
Deep plowing is essential in all dry
farming countries. The use of the
subsurface packer or some other Im
plement that will pack tho furrow
slice llrmly down against tho subsoil
again, also Is necessary. Too many
rnrmeis do not understand thu neces
sity or preparing a perfect seed bed.
They uro Inclined to plow nnd burrow
tho ground with tho single purpose In
view of getting loose dirt to cover tho
seed. This Is a mlstnke, for looso
dirt Is only an incident In thu prepara
tion of n seed bed nnd piny havo but
little relation to moisture conservation
which Is, utter all, the essentlnl thing
In all scmlnrld countries.
PIT SILO MOST ECONOMICAL
Any Man Can Build One, as It Re
quires Little Skill Saves Crop
During Droughty Year.
The pit silo ts tho cheapest and best
silo you can build. A good pit silo may
bo built ror tin actual outlay or cash
ror material not to exceed thirty dol
lars. Any man can build one, as It
requires llttlo skill; no high priced
machinery Ib necessary tor tilling; It
can't rail down; there Ib no upkeep
nnd the enallao can't rree.c. Tho
! silo will Biivo your crop during n
droughty year and glvo a Teed enrry-
lug all thu value of the green fodder.
If you build a silo nnd feed ono win
ter from It, you will wonder how you
over farmed without ono.

Wheat and Other Grains Have
Had an Excellent Start..
Tho seeding of spring wheat was
pretty gcnornl this spring about 7th
ot April or about as early as In Illinois
and Iowa. Oats and barley followed.
Information Is to hand that on first
of May all.seedlng was practically fin
ished. Farmers will now bo busy at
their breaking, nnd tho land for sum
mer fallow will bo cntored upon. Somo
who did not get their land prepared
last fall, will bo later than the others,
but as tho spring lu Western Canada
has been very opon they will bo only
a few days later. At tho tlmo or
writing rnln would bo welcome, but
at seeding time, tho ground contained
a splendid lot of molsturo and tho
lack of rain nt tho present time will
not be serious. Tho number of rartn
orB who have gono Into tho raising of
cattlo has been considerably In
creased, and tho preparation ror ex
tensive cultivated grass pastures Is
In ovidcuco everywhere. Tho culti
vation or rodder corn Is being largely
entered upon In Manitoba Micro be
ing upwards of 2G.O0O acres in corn.
In Saskatchewan thero will be a
largo iucrcuso In tho nrea planted, and
In Alberta many of tho moro progres
sive farmers nro taking hold of It.
Tho yield varies according to the cul
tivation It receives, and runs from
flvo to nlno tons per acre. Iti somo
portions of Manitoba whero it has
been poor Tor somo years, success hns
been nehlcvcd in ripening and it is
expected that a variety will soon bo
developed that wl'.l provide seed for
tho entire West, that will at an early
date glvo to Western Canada a fame
for tho growing of a marketable corn
equal to that It has now for tho
growth ot smaller cereals.
A trip through Western Canada re
veals field after field of alfalfa, tho
growth of which in any portion of
tho country is now absolutely assured.
When theso facts aro mado known to
tho farmers of tho corn and alfalfa

wealth makers la so well known, thero
will bo no hesitancy in taking advan
tage of tho splendid gift ot ICO acres
of land mado by tho Government of
tho Dominion of Canada, where equal

these free grant lands, thero aro tho

to Feed ihe World'
Tho war's fearful devastation
crocs has caused an unusual demand for eraln
from the American Continent. The
world must bs fed and there is an unusual demand
for Canadian wheat. Canada's invitation to everv
industrious American is therefore especially attrac
tive. She wants farmers to make moneyand happy,
prosperous homes for themselves while helping her
to raise immense wheat crops.
You can get a Homestead
other lands can be bought at remarkably low prices. Think of the money yoa
can make with wheat at its present high prices, where for some time it is lia
ble to continue. During many years Canadian wheat fields have averaged 20
bushels to the acre many yields as high as 45 bushels to the acre. Wonderful
crops also of Oats, Barley and Flax.
Mised farming is fully as profitafte an industry as grain raising. The excel
