waa closed aud ho hud proceeded
eight or ten steps from the house,

Dixon that he had been shot by
Dun Tcacbey without cause, aud
knowing he could live but a very
short time, he w ished to make a
statement concerning the affair to
some one while he was still iu his

1 be bulletin goes on to state that u flesh because be is using more
forty nine analyses of the typical
soils of the I'liited States showed
aa an average result thut they had
iu the first eight inches enough

enough phosphorus for "SHI, aud

soils w liere the chemist has found

conditions heroine so utterly barren
of results to the farmer as to lead
him to believe thut they are actu
ally devoid of plant imkI.
ihe bulletiu goes on further to
state that the soil at Bothauisted,
Fugland, which has been cropjieil
with wheat for titty yea is without
manure, and which had consequent
ly lieen exhausted, producing ouly
eight bushels tier arre, still con
tained phosphorus, iu winch it was
esecially exhausted, to lust a hun
dred years to come. v e have seen
this identical piece of laud and saw
two or three rrops of wheat grow
ing on it. The reason this plot,
with a supply of phosphorus to last
a blind ml years, had ls-comc ex
hausted was simply Is-cause it was
not in shape to U- available for I lie
ou say what hits this to do with
mirrolH-s or hucteriut A very great
leal. The trouble with the Itoth-
a tn at cad soil, and the trouble with
nearly all so-called exhausted soils,
is not that tliev are deficient in the
lemeuts supplied by commercial
frit Mixers, but because they are de-licit-lit
in vegetable matter humus
something for the bacteria or nil
crols-s to feed on. It is through
these that the unavailable forms of
plant food become available. To
piote from the bulletin:
'W hen vegetable or animal mat
ter is incorporated with the soil it
undergoes a process of decay. In
this decay certain products are
formed which react iimiii the insol
uble or unavailable forms of plant
food iu the soil and render them
soluble and available. This latter
decay is brought ulsmt through the
agency of myriads of bacteria pres
ent in the soil."
Here is an idea which may be
uite new to many of our readers,
and yet it explains a good many
things that happen in their exjieri-
euce. i ou must use vegetable mat
ter in order to make your mineral
matter available to plants; in other
words, to allow digestion and as
similation to go ou. The bacteria
of the soil are simply cells and they
work quite similar to what the mils
which line the glands of onrown
Ixjdies do in the process of diges
tion. No matter how much fisid
we may have in our stomach, or
the stomachs of our live stock, it
does neither them nor us any good
unless it is digested. If our digeg
tion is out of order, or if we take
something indigestible into our
stomachs, we run to the drug stores
to get patent medicines. If some
thing is the matter with our lands
which we do not understand we
buy commercial fertilizers. What
we need in either case is to get our
digestive system at work regularly
without tonics or stimulants, and
the best tonic yon ran give to your
laud is vegetable matter. This will
start digestion to work by giving
it something to work ou and the
rest it does itself. Man suffers from
indigestion; so does the soil, and
the woru out soil is simply one that
has a bad rase of dyspepsia. Give
it something for the bacteria to
work on and they will increase and
multiply and digest even the rocky
force than his system is supplying
biiu day by day. so soil that is
troubled with indigestion is using
up plant food faster than it can be
made available in the soil and it,
like a dysieptic man, goes into a
decline anil is said to lie morn out
We do not think the gissl Lord in

Valley to lie worn out iu ten, fitly

them to get au attack, through his
neglect or inefficiency, of either

THE BEEF PARADOX.
Raw Material Is Cheaper Than Ev
er. Finished Product is Dearer.
Discussing "The Greatest Trust
iu the World," Mr. Charles Fd
ward Bussell says, in the July in
stalment iu KverylMsly's:
''Iu the three years ending Jan
uary 1, IIhi.i, the value of the Ins-1
cattle of the Fuited States declined

whole discussion turns Uhiii it.

They show that it has ls-comc
"Here, then, is the great slgnih
cant truth we are to fare: The cost
of the raw material has diminished.
The price of tlie finished product
"In the history of commerce no
such condition has existed without
designed and abnormal control and
manipulation. Without abnormal
manipulation no such condition
would lie possible. If the cost of
the raw material and the cost of
the finished product had kept some
measure of relative pace, one ignor
ant of or blind to the operation of
this trust might assert that raw
material and finished product to
gether had merely taken part in a
worldwide movement of rising
prices. No one can say that now.
The discrepancy is too glaring.
Tlie ntw material is cheaper; the
finished product is dearer. In view
of this fact, what shall we think of
those laborious arguments by which
a government department tries to
show that this trust is no trust,
that the packers' profits are very
small, that the public has no rea
son to complaint Where are the
'hooks' now that will explain cheap

It apM-ars tu be understood that
there will be fresh indictments
against Bogers certainly. A uews
pajsT wants lingers forced to tell
what he knows, but people who
know the uutu say that he is a hard
proposition; iu other words, that
he is not oue of the telling kind.
It is contended that, ol course, he
dtx-s know who induced him to
want to see certain jurors aud that
he did not do this out of friendship
for Kilgo, who did uot even know
him, so the latter swore; hut on the
other hand the friends of Bogers,
who have known linu as a soldier
ami a citizen, say be does uot mind
punishment, but was never kuowu
to betray anyliody. They admire
this trait very murh indeed. Of
course it is well understood uow
that uo further efforts will be made
secure a reduction of his wh
ence of six months in jail, lie
broke dowu wheu sentenced, but
that was uot ou his own account,
but on account of his family, which
is so much esteemed here, Mr.
liogers is a brother of the late Con
gressman Sion II. lingers. Every
day fi nee he has beeu in jail he and
Sorrell have been supplied with the
I est fiKsl, from a private table.
Some persons want such a punish
ment put 11 pou liogers as will force
him to tell everything, but the
question comes up whether any-
hing which might be imposed
could make him "peach." liogers
has assumed tho. entire responsibil
ity aud even ottered, iu fact begged,
to Ins allowed to take the punish
ment both for himself aud for Sor
rell. Of course there is no telling
what will be done as to this matter.
It is but frank to say that, if one
listens to street talk, it would
quickly be surmised that several
awyers were concerned in the mat
ter, but further thau mere talk
nothing has yet develojied. Dame
Bumor has certainly been busy
alsiut this case and for the past
