MORE LEGUMIJiv MORE GROWTH, GREATER WEALTH
't " Z " " - - i' r - ,
, I' i - ' . I i , " ' ' " ' Is ''
' i , Plant: growth depends upon nitrates ; as much so as ani
' mal life .depends upon air. The legumes are the only men
bers of "the vegetable kingdom i that have the power to,ex
tract nitrogen" from the air and j"fix" it in the soil :. , .
jTherefore we! must grow the legumes. i
Each legume i3 a miniature nitrate factory, and it does
its work secretly and underground. It takes the nitrogen
from the air 'wRh its leaves and makes it into nitrates with
the nodules on its roots. i , ,
' So, eVery scheme of crop rotation must include legumes ;
, clover or peas or beans or the i vetches; or other first, second
or third cousins all belonging to the great pulse family, with
seed pods and butterfly shaped or two-winged flowers. The
legumes put into the soil the elements that are needed.for the
growth of all other crops. j "
' " There are two other great reasons why the Salem dis
j trict in particular should grow more legumesif it could be
' conceived that more reasons were thinkable j
j . First, legumes go with dairying, and this is essentially
a dairy country. We must have cows :to provide soil fertili
I zation, and we mus have cows to mother our swine breeding
1 and poultry industries. Cows must go with our, orchards;
both cows and cover crops of legumes. No- orchard will re
J main thrifty without the constant renewal of the fertility
! of the soil. . . -
Second, we must have honey bees.! There can be no cer
! tainty of pollination : without bees.. The winds do not carry
the cherry blossoms at all. ; They must be carried by the bees.
1 In the years when i we have steady rains during the fruit
- blodming season; there m; be partial ; or even total failure
j of pollination of any or all fruit crops without honey bees to
carry the pollen, .during the sunshiny, hours between the
showers.: The bees run-from 20,000 to 100,000 workers to the
ing an increasing acreage of alfalfa; and we are trying out
two new varieties of soy beans. , - . ' . -
In fact, our growers, as usual, are fully doing their part.
They are up on their toes. They are the backbone of both
rural prosperity, and city growth. t ' ' ,

One of "the strongest contributions to the wide religious
discussion now going on in this country between Ihe J unda
mentalists and the Modernists is an article in the WorToVs
Work, entitled Freedom in School and Church, by W. H. F.
Faunce, President of Brown University. President Faunce, i3
declared to be a staunch ! Christian, and since Brown Uni
versity is a Baptist institution, he is presumably a Baptist.
He takes strong ground! for evolution and declares that
evolution is now as firmly' established as the law of gravita
tion. "Both are consistent with Christianity ; neither has
anything to do with the truth or falsity of . any religion.
Whether species were created instanter, as coins are stamped
in the mint, or were created by process, as a gardener grows
roses that has nothing to do with -the great fundamentals
of religion: "Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with fall
thy heartf and thy neighbor as thy self." !
He continues : "We i thought that forty years ago m
Americari religion had been adjusted to the evolutionary
theory,. as it was adjusted in the sixteenth century to the
far more startling Copernican theory. We thought that
science had definitely f yielded a large place to the unseen and
intangible, and had agreed to Goethe's saying that, The
universe divided by reason leaves a remainder.' We thought
that forty years, ago it was established that th Bible was
not a text-bookiof science any more than is Pilgrim's Pro
gress or John Wesley's journal. Now, to the an azement of
the whole world a large'inumber of sincere entt usfasts are
proclaiming that human1 progress is a delusion, that the
ultimate catastrophe is close at hand, that alttiurhan institu
tionshome, school, state and church rare soon to disappear,
that the worse the world gets, the more reason We have to
hope, and are basing their , pessimistic and n6n-c;o-operatiYe
attitude on the baldly literal interpretationof a 'few ofthe
obscurest texts in the Bible." . ' . ;.
This author sums up. the controversy as it appeals to him
thus : The question is this : Is American Christianity strong
enough to include, as does the Bible, various type3 of person
ality and various modes of thinking, or is i a one-track affair
which excludes all minds, that do not run in a single groove?
Is the American church to be broad and deep enough to guide
the conscience of a hundred million people, or is it to be a
group of 4 petty sects, controlled by literalists, excluding all
germinating ideas and forward-looking minds?"
To auote from Presiden't Faunce's article asrain: "In
deed, the doctrine of evolution, rightly understood and 1 in
terpreted, is today one of the most powerful aids to religious
faith. It has delivered thousands from perplexity amount
ing to despair. It ha supplanted the old, paralyzing concep;
tion of a world machine,-a world mechanical and lifeless;
grinding out human destiny without end. A developing wofld,
3till in the process, ceaselessly unfolding, still to be shaped
by human purpose and effort that is the inspiring concep
tion - now placed in the hands of : the church by modern
science." f r ' : ' . ;
- Can it be, as claimed by Fundamentalism, that the ef
forts of scholars in the search for truth,' the labors of Chris
tian apostles and evangelists, the work of emancipators and
reformers, the sacrifices of statesmen, liberators and martyrs
all striving for greater perfection of humanity, for greater
intelligence in the masses, for higher ideals and their realiza
tion for humanity, and for the reign of liberty, truth, justice
and righteousness upon the earth have no value in the esti
mation of the loving, all-wise Creator of the universe? Carl
it be that these efforts and struggles in the progress of the,
race and their Wonderful results mean nothing when trans4
lated into the language of eternity, but that they are all
to be swept 'away by the cataclysm which the All-Wise has
decreed shall end 'the "present dispensation" as the Funda
mental ist brethren designate the present . age ? Is human
progrss but a dreamland human; life a horrible nightmare
from which the world will one day foe aroused to witness the
sweeping away of the results of ages' of progress and devel-
onrrient for humanitv. a3 well as for the whole creation, to,
make way for the literal coming! of the Lord from a far
away heaven to set up His literal thrbne and establisha new
dispensation upon the earth, the purpose of which the Funda
mentalists have failed to make clear? Can it be that the
Creator has made such a poor job of His work that He is to
wipe it all out, except a chosen few, 'the elect,, among whom
are of course, to bej the Fundamentalist brethren, with whom
as a nucleus He is to begin all, over again? I -
time since Mrs. Harding became
in last - Sentember. They were
cccompanied by Edward P. Mc
Lean, Washington newspaper
publisher, and" Mrs., McLean, their
hnafa in Florida. ? A musicar com
edy was the attraction!
Nd, a thousand times,, no. Neither reason nor the New
Testament warrants any such horrible! hypothesis. Reason,
the Scripture and the experience of mankind teach that the
only cataclysm that is to come to the world is" that that is con
tinually corning, to it as the lower anajless perfect manifesta
tions of life are displaced by the higher and more perfect. As
the life and civilization of today are but the result, the con
summation of the effort and development of the past so will
the future build upon the present as a foundation the wonder
ful structures that He has decreed shall stand upon the earth
as well as fill all of His creation. - i I. : ; -
No, pessimism and S gloom can not long dominate any
considerable! portion of the religious life of America, which is
itself proof that the All-Wise has decreed eternal progress
and development for His world. -
t No, if God be love, as Jesus dtclared, if He be possessed
of infinite wisdom, He must look upon His creation some
what as the wi3e father looks upon his little child, realizing
that he is an infant, not a developed man, and loving him in
spite of his weakness and imperfection. This divine, love has
provided for all our needs and the conditions forour develop
ment into perfection. He has the whole creation in His same
loving care. P Otherwise it would never have been,1 it would
not be. '.- .

J subjects, putting his enemies- to

V in his royal diet. The- lion Is a
"large heary: beast and can outran
, i'l the- xehra only for a short dis
' " tance,: so he 'has to sneak Vnp un-
der.jeoTer as close to the herd
as he can and then rush ont after
his- jTictim. " The lion kills only
i when he Is hungry.. "and a.fter
'f-he had his dinner he will
W roam about quite harmlessly and

, even tearing them away. , If he
cannot eat all of his kill at one
jneal, he lies down beside It and
' sleeps or guards It until he Is
".hungry again and can eat eTery

' The lion has learned from ex

will lie motionless for a : long
time in the underbrush to avoid
having to fight them, when he
Is attacked he will stand a great

pain, watching for a chance to
escape: lit there is no way ot es
caping, however, he will fight
madly, and the unlucky; hunter
who is I unable to kill him soon
enough is at his mercy.
If- a. man meets, a, Hon when

Because of his habit, of hunt

I THE SHORT STORY, JR. I
The country seemed peaceful and
A fine sort of place to the 'mice;
But theit Joy did not last,.
For. events followed fast, .
And tragedy came in a trice.
v "It must be awful," thivered
Mrs. Mouse, looking at ner hus
band. "How yon even endured it
for. all those months is more than
I can 'see.', Whenever;.! rebemter
that you were born and raised In
the country It makes' me feel just
dreadful. I .hope none of pur
friends ever find it out. But after
all, I suppose you couldn't help
it. You showed your good sense
by moving to the city just as
soon ,as'you Were bid enough.'':.
? "Yes, that's right," laughed her
husband. He had never told his
wife how he had happened to
move to the city. He had been
living In a big box of cheese at
the ' time. . One day he had dis
covered that the box and i he in
the ' box had been moved . to the
city. "But seriously," he added,
"you know wife, the country isn't
so bad. ' It's nice and quiet end
one always has plenty to eat
there, s Then another thing, you
don't have - to the continually . on
guard aganst " poison and traps."
; "Nice rural i quiet and safety,"
sneered Mrs. Moused "Don't talk
to me about it. If you ever want
to go back to your old farm,
you'll have , to go alone. ! That's
air I have to say."
, . Hardly, mord than a week had
passed f before Mr. and Mrs. Chal
mers Mouse found themselves in
the country. .Their lovely city
home, a - large box of excelsior,
had .been . 'shipped to the rnral
districts before they had had time
to move' out. .
At first Mrs. Mouse was fran
tic. It was terrible: She knew
she could never stand It. !- Chal
mers himself waa secretly rather
pleased to get hack to the peace
and plenty of the country, but of
course, he , dare , not say so. He
had worked so hard in the' city
to scrape : enough together to
keep hia family alive that it
seemed almost like heaven to go
into the- pantry to find enough
food to l3t them a year.
And then a funny thing hap
pened. Gradually Mrs. , Mouse
ceased to complain. She. too, had
learned to. Bke the rnral life She
saw how much .happier her hus
band, was.' The' children thrived
on the good butter and cream and
were better than they had ever
been in : their lives. i Theer were
no traps to worry about. It real
ly was very peaceful and nice
Now Mrs. Mouse was an honeat
little mouse, so she owned up to
her husband that she. had. been
mistaken. "I like it," she said
"I i hope I shall i be able to end
my days in the i country."
The cat was listening and; he
heard her. ATI right," he said
"you ; shall." , He tnade a spring
toward Mrs. ; Mouse and .in less
than a second her wish was rut
filled. : ': .- 1
CHAPTER D 282.
HOW MADGE TOOK' CARE OF
To my surprise, Lillian, usual
ly dominant and decided, was as
docile as, a gentle child in! the
obedience which she gave my ulti
matum that she go to -bed for two
or three hours. -. ;- s
"I shall be Very glad to put my
self in your charge, Madge,"j she
said with a weary little smile.
J'But you'll have to tell I one tar-
radiddle i for me. I left Marion
over at Mrs. Durkee's, ahd If she
comes over while I'm asleep, tell
her. I. said that I was busy writ
ing and did not wish tp be dis
turbed. I don't know what to do
with ' the child." she said half
meditatively. "She is absolutely
unreasoning in her terror about
me when! I am ill, or: am away
from her longer than I have plan
ned. She Is always imagining
scone dreadful accident. I don't
know what she would do if ! any
thing did happen to me." t
Her voice was sombre,' as If
the menace of something sinister
ahead of her had touched I her
with a foreboding finger. . '
"It strikes' me," I rfaid dryly,
that with such a condition fac
ing you, it behooves you to take
etra care of yourself. I warn
you I'm going to.be an inexorable
taskmaster, but if you'll come
with me now .I'll tell stories for
you till I'm i black in the face.
I struck a bell for Kate Lil
Han had found me In the dining
room -and, almost instantly my
little, maid apepared at the kitchen
door. . i .
We both laughed at this qdo
tation from Katie, her .favorite
method of squelching the deliv'-r
ery boys . who delight to tease her.
"I'll bo good,"' Gillian eaid,
"but if,: as I su3pect.T your reason

I slipped my arm around Lil

that ehe, usually so full of ener

upon me as though my strength

her get off her gown and into a

was ready to take the tray from
Katie when i she appeared at the
door. - '

comment, for" I didn't wish her

- Katie's laugh floated back to
us as she scuttled down the stairs.
and I knew; that she not only
would see that we were ' undls
Curbed, but that Marion was safe
from' worry about her mother.
I forced Lillian to drink a cud
of the steaming tea, and to eat a
slice of Katie's delicious toast.
Then I.tput her Into my bed, cov

before going Inta the curtained
