OBTAIN PROFIT FROM
An Old Woodlot Which Is Grazed Very Little Grass and No Young
(Prepared bv the United Htntos Depart
ment of Agriculture )
A cash return for the wood grown
on the farm woodlot Is Just ns poBsl
bio ns a profit on other farm crops.
Farmers often lose sight of this fait,
mainly becauso timber requires only a
smnll amount of labor but a long
period of years to bring It to n mar
ketable condition. Often, therefore,
tho owner is satisfied with an annual
supply of dead firewood, and tho wood
lot becomes a hnrborlng place for In
sect pests and a meager paslurago for
roaming llvo Gtock. Yet Improvement
of the woodlot depends upon Just n
few simplo principles which any farm
er may learn nnd practice. Theso aro
contained in a new farmers' bulletin,
No. 711, published by tho United
States department of agriculture.
Improvement of tho woodlot begins
with tho cutting out of all dend and
diseased timber. Thon tho maturo
merchantnhlo trees should bo re
moved, llko nny other farm crop, when
conditions favor a sale. Now trees
should bo plnnted In tho open spaces
to grow up and fill in tho forest can

Woodlots may bo divided Into two
classes, each determined by tho char
acter of tho stand. On ono typo, tho

that undesirable species nro crowd

cutting will rnrcly pay directly for
Its removal, tho resulting enhance
ment In vnluo of tho remaining stand
makes tho work a good investment.
Tho presence of dead or dying trees
in tho stand, a very denso Interlocked
crown cover, stems very slendor In
proportion to their height, or appar
ent stagnation in tho height growth,
nil Indicate that a thinning Is needed.
This usually la dono when tho stand
Is from 15 to 20 years old. Tho oper
ation is similar In principal to thin
ning nny other farm crop where It Ib
desired to obtain a fow good plantB
rather than many of poor quality. Tho
owner should uso tho ax with care,
removing only trees which crowd oth
ers nnd rauso too great competition
for sunlight. Material removed In a
thinning Is valur.blo for fenco posts
and poles and should pay for tho op
eration. As a rulo, not moro than one
fifth to ono-fourtu of tho trees should
bo removed at ono time. Grnpovlno,
Ivy and woodblno, nnd slrUlar climb

Bhould bo cut out by severing their
main stems near tho ground.
In tho second typo of woodlot tho
trees vary greatly In ago and holght
and tho stnnd Is largely dominated
by old trees, whose tops shut off tho
sunlight and retard tho growth of tho

younger trees beneath. Such a trnc
should firm bo cleared of dead and
diseased timber. Next, tho mnturc
living trees should be removed. This
should bo delnycd, however, until suf

nnd marketing conditions penult n

less tho owner expects to provide for
tho now crop by planting. Tho old
trees should bo tnken off In two or
three nuccesslvo cuttings at Intervals
of several years, each cutting tnklng
from one-third to onohnlf tho trees.
Theso cuttings allow tho remaining
trees to rcrelvo moro sunlight nnd
thus encourago them to produco moro
seed. Neither of tho first two cuttings
should bo so heavy as to encourago

Scattered old trees, suppressing val
uahlo young growth, orten will bo
found in woodlots. 8uch trees will
never bo of much vnluo for lumber
and their wldosproading habit often
results In tho suppression or killing
of tho young nnd better-formed seed

considerable vnluo. It Is best In such
cases to roraovo tho old troes at

Hogs eat tho Bced nnd thus prevent
reproduction from starting, or root

Tho existing growth Is damaged
through tho trampling or wounding of

Horses Bhould bo kept out of tho

Make n list of tho seven cities men
tioned In this lesson and locate them
on u map. Lot seven pupils attack to
the map a Hag, or banner, to locato
each ono. The visit to Iconlum oc
curred probably In the spring of A I'.
47 (Ilnmsey). Paul nnd llatnnbas had
a great triumph and n severe testing
at looulutn. wrought a great victory of
faith and becamo popular at Lstrn,
onlv to meet great tilbulatlon. On
their homeward Journey (hey con
Ilimed saints, set up rulea and gave
account of their labors to the homo
chinch of Autioch.
I. In Iconlum (vv. 1 7). Thin wan
a Roman city of gient antiquity and
importance. Tho modern city Konlii
Is an Important Mohammedan and
trade center. Tradition sayc Paul was
imprisoned for being a magician and
teaching n woman named Thekla not
to marry This woman endured great
hardships and trials for tho faith, fin
ally becoming n uun nt Seloncla nnd
dying nt tho advanced age of ninety.
Prom this tradition wo get most of our
Ideas of Paul'H appearance small,
bandy-legged, largo eyed, shaggy eye
brows, long noBe; full of graco with
sometimes tho fnco of n man nnd at
others of an angel. This Is tradition
only, but Ib probably somewhat near
tho truth. Paul followed his usual
first witnessing In the synngoguo, wit
nessing to tho cntlro population, .lew
and Gentile, and dividing them effec
tively by his wonls about Jesus.
II. In Lystra (vv. 8-21). (I) Popu
larity (vv. MS). Their Introduction
hero would seem propitious, healing
tho cripple und nt onco gaining the
esteem of tho people. Adoration nnd
gratitude appeal to tho human heart.
Underneath tho heathen idea that tho
gods "came down to us In tho likeness
of men," Is tho grent nnd glorious
truth of the Incarnation (.Inhn 1:14;
Phil. 2:6, 7). Wo should hesitate to
condemn theso men of Lystra too se
verely, for what Amerlcnn community
is not open to condemnation in this
regard? Too many Christians offer
garlands (v. 13) nt tho feet of tho mer.
whom God has used to work hla
mighty works. It wns common com
plaint that In the duys of his greatest
victories, men could not find Mr.
Moody when n servlco wns dismissed,
or got Into his quarters at tho hotels;
ho would givo no opportunity for self
glorification. Paul nnd DarnnbnB had
hard work to restrain theso hero wor
shipers (v. 14), and to convince them
who they were and how thoy hnd been
enabled to accomplish such a wonder
ful ralrnclo (v. 15). Paul was of "llko
staturo" with them and would not nc
ccpt worship as did tho Caesars or
Herod (12:22, 23). lie exhorted tho
Lystrlans to turn from "theso vain
things," I. o., Bitch Idol worship, unto
tho "living God" (sec also I Cor. 8:4;
I Thess. 1:0). Hitherto God had not
miraculously interfered to turn
men from their evil waya (v. 1C), but
left them to their own devices to show
their Inability to find their way back
to him (seo Acts 17:30; I Cor. 1:21).
Yet God Is not "without witnesses"
(v. 17). Tho seasons und tho natural
laws point to God, yet men still ro
main blind und ungrateful. TIiub by
vehement exhortation they prevented
this act of sacrilege (2) Persecution
(vb. 19, 20). The mob is over fickle,
(v. 18), but it did not turn them "unto
tho living God" (v. 15). Conversion
Is tho almplo turning from idols (I
ThosB. 1-9), a rational thing, but ono
contrary to tho prldo of men who do
Biro to "do aomethlng" whereby they
may merit or can demand their Bal
vatlon. Even as Paul had difficulty to
turn peoplo asldo from idols, bo today
it is hard to keep men and women
from idolatry, not tho gross or vulgnr
idolatry of heathenism, but tho re
fined Idols of culturo, bucccss, powor,
money nnd plcasuro. To his dllllcul
ties Paul had tho added persecution of
tho vlndlctlvo Iconlans and those from
Antloch (v. 19). God dollvorcd him
from this trial (I Cor. 11:25, 27). All
loyal witnesses must expect persecu
tion from tho God-hating world (II
Tim. 3:12; John 15:18-20).
III. The Return (vv. 22-28). "When
thoy had preached tho gospol to tho
city" (v. 21) literally "having ovnn
gcllzcd tho city," they started homo
confirming believers and appointing
lendors in each center vlBltcd. Thoy
did not tako tho short cut of 1C0 mllos
to Paul'B homo In Tarsus, but thoy
visited their now converts.
Symbolically tho cripplo of Lystra
Is a typo of Bin, (a) helpless, (b) born
in that condition (Psa. 51:5), (c) hud
to ho holpcd from without, by outsldo
power (Rom. 5:0); (d) all could soo
tho chango (James 2:18). This mir
acle wrought (a) Praise from tho peo
plo, (h) Protestation on tho part or
Paul and Barnabas, (c) Persecution
from tho flcklo and disappointed
priests who incltod the peoplo. Per
secution helped tho proclamation of
tho gospol. Thoso who bollovod
strengthened Paul by Bhnrlng nls dan
ger (v. 20) nnd becauso of this ox
porlenco Paul "mado many disciples."
