still us Sunday there Once it pro mised to be a busy growing little vil lage but a misfortune befei it from which it will be a long time in recov ering A large portion of its wealth aud population were taken from it in a novel manner eight years ugo there came to the place a man named Adams preaching a new doc trine Beitigamau of some talent und great energy he soon drew crow ded houses These sermons or lec tures were sensational u strange mix ture of truth and blasphemy yet so great was his power over his hearers that they were blind to all faults He ssiemed to cxert a mesmeric influence over his followers indeed he boasted that he only wanted 10 catch the eye ol a person to make him a However tliat may have been some of the most intelligent und sensible as well as the wealthiest people were among his converts Adams taught thai Christ was onlyhuman until lie was baptised when he became diviue He told them they were to go to Pales tine and watch for the second joining of Christ and tiiut there they wo Id never die Tin only preparation re quired for enteripg his church was baptism While Ju Indian River Adams car ried on u theater which brought in a greut deal of money It was well con ducted and the acting is said to have been good He chose the actors aud trained them himself Their princi pal play was Richard III A colony wa formed lo go to Pales tine Adams was sent out to select a location Joppa was the place decided upon by Preparation was at once made They took with them lumber for building houses and farm ing implements The little baud embarked iu August 15G3 a little more than three years af ter Adams first made his appearance The vessel was a new barque just launched and between the decks the space was divided into temporary state rooms each of which was occu pied by a family Almost every one who went hai once had a comfortable home yet they sold all and gave the money to Adams for safe keeping Once outside of land Adams showed himself a perfect tyrant being par tiully intoxicated ull the time I sup pose we can form no idea of the mis eries of that voyage Added to tht usual seasickness was the e their close quarters the want of suf ticieut light and pure air The fi provided was of the coarsest kind unc thR allowance small Arrived at Joppa before many o the houses could be erected the grea ter part of the little colony were lyin on beds of sickness occasioned by the edects of the terrible voyage und tin new climate as well as by disappoint ment They were expecting to lind land flowing with milk and houcy instead of the parched clay of Tappa Death soon finished the work of dis ease in many cases Mothers sat au watched their chilJren die when nou ishiug food and comfortable bet would doubtless have saved the lives And the money that shoul have bought these comforts was spen in building and furnishing elegantly a dwelling for Adams Spint in wii and brandy for Adams table The leader grew more inebriated all th time till at last hils lift being threa eud he left Most of the surviving colonists ha managed to get back to America son by working their passage others the help of friends at home Only nine are now iu Palestine most of them too poor to get home Many of these unfortunate people have settled now in other places and those returned to thnir native G 1 A iLES READS AND THE LOH 30H TIMES Iitries Ueades apologetic

to CihtJne tlieir cows on a psiBch of grass too small to bother to fence I have kept two cows on small pieces of grass with no diltieul ty for more than a year without the least harm to eiiner of them 1 had a strap made lV inches wide long enough to btickfe around the hiiid leg above the ankle with a riiigsewed iu it A rope was fastened to a stake in the fence or one driven for the ptir poje with a large snap at the other end to snap into the ring of the strap it is easily anil je sized bedcord answer but I prefer a large sized rope as it wiil not wear out so soon aud a rope well greased will last two seasons sure 1be length of the rope must be determined by the size ot the grass spot and if there is more than one cow to be tied they must he so far ap ut that they can not go around one another and tie themsevea together hue they would not hurt eacli other I came near losing u valuable cow by her by the liea1 she got twisted in she rope anil one my neighbors found her nearly dead I liheii studied out Ihii plan and it works so well that I want others to receive the same benehl It is much nicer for calves as it allows them tlie full use of their heads ABSORS38TT POWERS OF MEL LOW SOIL Experiments have shown that a mellow loamy soil is callable of ab sorbing in twelve hours when exposed to a mois atmosphere an amount uf water equal to two percent of its weight If any argument were need ed to keep Ihe soil mellow here is a most powerful one Lo convince us For this property possessed by a mel low soil is one lha t in a dry season is able to give it the power of maturing a crop wheu a hardened surface would lie unable lo J so A surface that i impenetrable to the atmosphere of course could not absorb tiny of tlie raoisiure with which the atmosphere is charged But when rendered free from lumps by repeated plowings ixnd harrowings each change of tempera ture causes a circulation f air through out the mass of aoit which is free then to absorb all the moisture coming
