Mlello, in Parmer's Review.
The dead plant Is prcpnrcd for feed
ing the growing plant through tho ac
tion of Xnlcrodemea or bacteria or, to
use a name that will becomo general
nmong formers, ferments; low orders of
plant llfjslmllar to what raises bread
or ripens, cream. Thero Is much to learn
regarding the processes, but It has been
fairly wqll settled that each successive
step is taken by a dlfforent living or
ganism. Tho practical value of this
comes from the necessary conditions to
have the dead plant manure changed
to soluble phint food and this is under
the control of tho farmer. According
to Warrington ammonia is mado llrst,
nItrHes next, then nitrates. The plant
mny feed on all of them, ns all are
soluble, but the organisms mny change
ammonia and nitrites to nitrates beforo
the plant feeds upon them, as condi
tions favorablo to plant growth fnvor
nitrification, that is, heat and moisture
suitable, together with tho ingredients
necessary to form tho nitrates, which
manure supplies. Light Is not favor
able to nltrlflcattou. So wo conclude
that manure spread on tho surfaco in
dry weather must wnit until rains
wash it into tho soil. If it is put on
lightly, in the spring, grass may caver
and shade it so that the organisms can
work. If manuro is plowed under in
our soil from four to six Inches the
molfituro and heat will bo suitable, for
forming nitrates or soluablo plant food.
It manuro 13 packed solidly In a pit It
will not nitrify If kept wet and cold,
and If put la a great heap In winter,
whllo the -weather is cold It will not
produce nlhfates until turned over In
the spring, because tho oxygen In the
air is a' necessity In tho process. A
heap of manuro loft In the barnyard
all summer will wasto on tho outside,
because it gets too much air, while at
some distance from the outside It will
have proper conditions for nitrification,
und when rains come thoy will dlssolvo
the nitrates and wash tho solution
away. So manuro heaps carried over
Bhould be covered to avoid this, and
kept moist and cool to prevent II ro
fanglng or loss ot ammonia In gaseous
shape. A loose heap of manuro will
thus waste away, and in the fall a
load of It is of no more value, It as
much, than a load of greon manure.
We must then spread the green manure
at once on tho surface or plow It un
der, or put it in condition to make ni
trates and then keop tho rains off.
It is not practical to put manure in
cold stornge, nor to build houses for
it. The best wo can do is to put the.
fresh manure on the land. Thero is
no loss from sun drying, and when
rains corao they will waeh It Into the
soil, where the ferments can reduco it
to plant food. Prof. James Wilson.
Viiluo of Pnrm Products,
Tho annual report of the secre
tary of agriculture, which has just bcon
issued, statos that the farm products
for the year ending June 30 last are
estimated p to bo worth $2,300,000.

a. large number of people in tho rura
districts whoso attention nnd energies
woro dovoted to othor occupations than
agricultural pursuits, but thero was
enough of a surplus to export to tho
value of $553,215,347, 75 per cent going
to European countries. Tho agricult
ural exporta or tho country constituted
C9.G3 per cont of tho whole.
Tho secretary of agriculture estimates
that thero aro 40,000,000 of tho total
population who do not live on farms, so
that one-third of tho population only
wna engaged in producing tho" vnst
amount indicated by tho figures given.
Tho year covered by tho report, com
paratively speaking, was not n, good one
for tho farmers. In many sections of
tho west thero was a total falluro of
crops in consequence of long-continued
drouths, so thnt a much better showing
would have been made had tho year

Government forestry seems to bo a
success in India. Tho inspector-general
of forcstfl for India is now in this
country nnd ho gives nn interesting
account of tho management in thnt
country. He says it has taken eighteen
years of legislation to got tho kind ot
laws needed, but thoy have succeeded.
Now the permanency ot tho big
forests Is assured nnd the government
will get a hnndsomo Income from them.
Tho government Is gradually obtaining
possession of all tho forest lands and

country under supervision. Tho gov

right is proved and settled perma

Tillage and Fertility Tho fact that
tho rocky particles ot tho hoil arc tho
source of phosphoric acid and nitrogen,
nnd that they nro dorlvcd by dissolving
of tho rock, makes tillage a source of
fertility, slnco It tends to tho more
rapid disintegration ot these rocky par
ticles. If these particles were as easily
dissolved as tho grains of sugar or
snlt, our soil resource would sooner bo
destroyed by excess of molsturo or by
too frequent cultivation. Ono of tho
great sources of depletion of soil lsho
too frequent cropping, which menns
double or triple depletion. First, tho
crop, bo.lt hay, grain, wool, meat or
milk, taken from tho farm, removes
fertility. Second, tho tillage unlocks
tho phosphoric ncld and potash from
tho rock, nnd makes a larger portion
available for tho plants. Third, tho
land left bare much of tho year declines

tho Idea worth trying In places where

It will. It would bo another case In

Profit In Apples. Apples pay If tho
producer can get 20 cents a bushel for
them on tho tree. Tho only hopo of
making tho raising of fruit pay Is to

are Bcarce. For this purpose the ut
most caro must bo observed in packing.
Tho rest of tho crop that cannot be con
sumed at home and mado into elder,
cider jelly and vinegar can bo fed prof
itably to llvo stock. Apple-fed pork Is
a delicacy. Tho peoplo of tho United
Statos, too, ought to eat more apples
than they do. Nothing Is more con

their appctltlos with the choicest fruit,

THE FUTURE OF RUSSIA.
Anstrlnn I.oclnlator Who llollevn
I)eilro In Conitirr thn World.
From a pamphlot by a member of the
Austrian Legislature; Tho czar rules
over a territory more than 9,000,000 j
square miles In extent. That is twlco
as much as China, two and n half times ,
as much as tho United States, flvo times
as largo as all Europe, forty-ono times
na largo as Germany, and fifty tlmeB as
largo an France. Itussla's population la
more numerous than that of any two
European powers outsldo their colonics,
ami liusBla's population Increases much
fnstcr. At tho end of tho century It will
bo greater than that or tho triplo alli
ance. Russia follows tho cxpnnBlvo
force within her, nnd alms at the. rule
of tho world. The czar regards hlrasolf
as tho king of kings, and tho samo vlow
Ib held by his people. To this very day
ono may hear Russians mako tho nalvo
nseortion that tho Crimean war was
nothing but a rebellion of tho French, '
English and Turks against tho power
of tho czar. Tho Russians wnnt Con
stantinople because thoy regard them- !
selves na tho hclra of eastern Rome. In
Asia they mean to obtain tho empire of
Genghis and Tamcrlnnc. Can Europo
defend herself against Russia? Na-
polcon I. wob ot tho opinion that a war- j
like, cnterprlalng cznr could soon reach :
Calais with his army and become tho
supreme ruler of Europo's destinies.
But. Russia in not given to sudden lm-
pulsco; she advances slowly. The triplo
alliance was created because tho powers
of Europo ceo tho danger but coalitions
liko this nearly nlways loso tho right
moment to act, and Russia knows woll ;
how to make uso of tho jealousies of tho '
European powers. If tho French poll- j
ticians could judge calmly they would j
seo that they risk their colonies In their
hopo to regain Alsace-Lorraine, and ,
thoy would becomo suspicious of Hub- j
sla. A Fronch statesman very justly j
says: "itussla is Germany's onemy to- I
day; to-morrow, whon wo have over
come Germany, Russia will bo our
onemy." But common senso nlono docs
not rulo the world; passion, too, has Its
Influence. Many ycara must pass be
foro tho French glvo up their IdeaB of
revenge. Tho only defense against
Russia Is strict watchfulness on tho
part of tho triple alliance, assisted by
England. Under theso circumstances
Europo may experience surprises great
er than tho moot pessimistic now ex
pect. Rusln can count upon Franco's
assistance, and may suddenly find
allies among the Slavonic nations. And.
Russia has tho advantago of autocratic
leadership. The powers which form tho
triplo alliance cannot act without a
council. Russia, therefore, has tho In
itiative, and enn choose her own tlmo
for tho attack. It Is difficult to say
whether tho diplomats of Europo will
be equal to tho emergency. This much
Is certain: Tho balance ot power Is
turning more In favor of Russia, henco
.nil who value tho civilization of west
ern Europo cannot fall to rogard tho
future with apprehension.

ho went his way. A few days later Mr.

that It attracted his guest's attontlon,
Lord Houghton said; "Very good plc

Speaker Reed, to tho extent of his
power, so far Ib enforcing on congress
a do-nothing policy. Congress met nnd
Reed was elected speaker Dec. 2. The
president's message was dollvered next
day. Since that tlmo nothing has been
done except to adjourn from duy to day
or to adjourn Thursday to tho follow
ing Monday. The republican members
arc scrambling nnd quarreling over
committee places, which nro valuable,
as tho committees control legislation,
and In this congress nearly all legisla
tion will bo stuffed with boodle.
It is usoless to say that Mr. Reed
came among a lot of strangers, was
elected unexpectedly to the speaker
ehlp and had to mako himself acquaint
ed with a throng of new men beforo
ho could organize the committees. It
has been understood for a year that he
would be elected speaker of this con

pecially ho should have been as ready
then as he is now to select the chair

nearly all cases they will be men with
whom he has been associated In the
house for a dozen years or more.
Tho appointment of the committees
has been delayed co long that tho mem
bers already nro scattering to their
homes for tho Christmas holidays. This
Indicates that tho committees arc not
expected to meet and consider measures
of legislation until long after the now
year opens, and perhaps not then. As
soon ns the names of tho committee
men are announced an adjournment
will bo had to tho second week in Jan
uary. It will bo tho middle or tho end
of the month before the members get
back again and settle down to busi

disturbers of the public peace have de
nounced President Cleveland from
Washington several day3 while nego
tiations relating to Venezuela were
suspended and tho report of Secretary
Carlisle on tho condition of the treas
ury awaited his approval. This lo mere
self-stultlflcatlon. The republicans
know that they could not do anything
either with Venezuela or the finances
until their congressional committees
were appointed and organized. Prob
ably they will not do anything then.
Speaker Reed says that they expect
public approval "for what thoy fall to
do." Why, then, are they Indignant
at President Cleveland because he does
not move actively forward, opur thorn
to action and force them to abandon a
policy ot do-nothlnglsm which thoy de

clamor for the renowal of McKlnleyism.
Having satisfied tholr appetites for

An to 1'i.rty Disloyalty.
A Chicago newspaper which once
was able to discriminate a difference
botween taxation for public purposes
and taxation for prlvato benefits has
thla to say: "It cannot bo that Presi
dent Cleveland nnd Secretary Carlisle
thlnk-they would be disloyal to tholr
own party If they should recommend
nn increase of duties to meet tho neces
sities of tho government."
It can indoed be that they think Just
this. Their own party has doclnred
through Its ouly authoritative organ, its
national .convention, thnt taxation for
any other purpose than that ot raising
rovenue for public purposes is unjusti
fiable and wrong. It has doelarod that
tho ei.erciiw ot the taxing power in
such wis as to enrich the few at the
expense of the mnny or to enrich any nt
tho expense of others is robbery.
No matter what may be tho position
of a little handful of senators who call
themselves Democrats, this Is the posi
tion of the Democratic part as author
It follows that the president nnd tho
secretary of tho treasury would be dls.
loyal to their party nn well as to their
own convictions or duty if they were
to recommend such nn Increase of du
ties as the Republicans propose. Any
such lucrense would put flvo times us
much in private pockets as it would put
in tho public treasury.
New duties on articles not produced
In this country on a commercial Bcale,
such as tea and coffee, would produce
revenuo without taxing the people, to
enrich classes. But why recommend
anything such thing to a Republican
house of representatives? Everybody
knows that nothing would result. Chi
Thron Truths for tho Fnrnicr.
Philadelphia Record: If the Ameri
can farmer will consider this raattei
calmly and without prejudice, ho will
becomo conscious of three truths. First,
thnt a trlff levied for "protection"
must increase tho price of everything
ho buys, because the production of such
things can be, and has been, limited
by tho trusts nnd combinations which
havo monopolized their manufacture.
Second, that It can add" nothing to tho
prlco of what ho sella, because It is not
within the power of any possible com
bination of farmers to limit agricultural
production, and the price of the surplus
must necessarily regulate tho prlco of
all. Third, that the only possible out
let for this surplus Is to bo found In
foreign markets; and n protective tariff
hinders its sale in those markets, be
causo in order to be protective it must
forbid tho acceptance of the only things
that foreigners have to give In exchange.
Sherman' C'ontr.tdlctor.v Course.
Boston Post: Senator Sherman ad
vocates a step backward to McKlnley
ism lu order to Increase the revenue.
Ho says that all the present trouble
comes from tho reduction of duties
by tho Democratic tariff. How docs Sen
ator Sherman reconcllo his advice with
tho fact that the Democratic tariff ha3
produced $35,000,000 more In Its first
year than tho McKlnley tariff pro
duced in its last year? Why should a
productive tariff bo changed for an un
productive tariff? Five years ago Sen
ator Sherman and his Republican ns
coclates fixed up the McKlnley tariff
to reduce tho income; tho surplus in
tho treasury under four years of Demo
cratic administration had accumulated
too greatly. Aided by Republican ex
travagance, tho McKlnley tariff did the
business only too effectually. Does
Senator Sherman mean to say It would
work the other way now?
