Chlcaco Grain and Produce.
CHICAGO, March 19. In spite of the fact
that receipts of all grains -were larger than
the estimates, the opening liour on Change
today was marked by firmness and slight
ly better prices. The little bultre was of
short duration, however, and before noon
grains sold at, or below, the opening
prices. When there was an upward ten
dency there was fair activity, but with the
depression in values came dullness.
There were a good many foreign buying
order-, in the wheat pit, and these held the
market steady earl-. Uut when it was
announced that the decrease in the
visible was but -105,000, when twice
that amount was anticipated and that the
receipts in the northwest were very large,
the tendency was downward prices, de

Corn was only moderately active today,

out more offerings and prices gradually re
acted. .May opened at TliatT)lc.t ad

Oats were dull and heavy and very little
change occurred in values. May opened

Little interest was manifested in the
provision market, and no particular
changes occurred. Oil'erings and demand
were light and fiunctuations were confined
to narrow limits. May pork opened at

and closed at 14.10r14.1'J1. May lard

AMMAIS MAKE SOIL.
TWENTY SPECIES OF AMERICAN
MAMMALS ARE BURROWERS.
Tho Wondcrfal TVork Done by Ants.
Earthworms What Larral Insects Ac
complish Activity of the Crayfish in
"Wet Ground Observations.
Although tha earthworms are undoubtedly
very important acrents in overturning and
breaking up of soil, it appears to me that
I they are most effective in the tilled fields or
in the natural and artificial grass lands. So
far as I have been able to observe, these
creatures are rarely found in our ordinary
forests, where a thick layer of leaf mold,
commingled with branches, lies upon tho
earth. The character of this deposit is such
that the creatures are not competent to make
their way through it, and the-, therefore, in
tho main avoid such situations. Moreover,
wherever the soil is of a very sandy nature
earthworms are scantily found, if they aro
present at alL These worms aro practically
limited to the soils of a somewhat clayey
character, which have no coating of decayed
vegetation upon them.
As the greater portion of tho exisiting soil
has been produced in forest regions, I shall
first examine the action of various animals
upon tho soils of wooded countries. The
mammals are of all our vertebrates the most
effective in their action upon the soil of
forests. Twenty species or moro of our
American mammals are burrowers in 'the
forest bed. They either make their habita
tions beneath the ground or resort to it in
pursuit of food. Of these our burrowing
rrwlpnts nrn nnrlmnc t.Vo mnct. frWtivn hnf. n
lnrreniimhflpnfnthor! mnmml! rsnrt.
to the earth and make considerable excava
tions. In forming their burrows or in the
pursuit of other burrowing animals these
creatures often penetrate through the whole
or greater portion of the soil covering. Tho
material which is withdrawn from the bur
row is accumulated about its mouth. The
result is the overturning of a considerable
amount of the earth and a consequent com
mingling of tho material with vegetable
matter. "When brought to the surface and
left exposed to the action of frost the break
ing up of tho material is greatly favored, and
thus the formation of tho soil is facilitated.
Considerable as is the effect of burrowing
mammals, the principal overturning of tho
earth in our primeval forests is accomplished
by the invertebrate animals. Where tho
woods aro not very dense, and particularly
where tho soil is somewhat sandy, our largest
species of ants are very effective agents in
working over tho soil. Their burrows extend
to the depth of some feet below the surface,
and each hill brings to tho air several cubic
feet of excavated matter, which, as slight in
spection shows, is much commingled with
vegetable matter. "Wherever these aut hills
abound they commonly exist to tho number
of a score or moro on each acre, and tho oc
cupants o each hill, in many cases, bring as
much as a cubic foot of matter to tho surface
in tho course of a single year. The action of
rain constantly operates to diffuse this nfa
terial on every side of tho hill. "Wc may often
observe a thin layer of sediment extending
for a considerable distance from the elevation.
As is well known to all those who have in
spected the soil within virgin forests, tho
earth is occupied by a host of larval insects,
principally belonging to the group of beetles,
but including also many orthopterous insects.
These creatures in the courso of their life un
derground displace a good deal of soil, a por
tion of which is thrown upon the surface, tho
greater part, however, being merely dislodged
beneath tho surface. The effect, however, is
to commingle and to break up the soil, and
thus favor its comminution. Although tho
rootsof trees do by far tho larger part of tho
rending which is accomplished in tho soil
layer, they do not bring about much com-
mingling of the soil
"Whcro tho woedsrare wet and favor the de
velopment of the crayfish tho effect of this
group of animals on tho overturning of tho
boil is extremely great. It probably exceeds
that which is accomplished in our ordinary
fields by the action of tho earthworm. A
single crayfish will often bring in tho courso
of a single season's activity not less than half
a cubic foot of earthy matter to the surface.
In certain districts where these animals
abound there appear to be not less than 1,000
to each acre of surface. If such bo their
number it is evident that not less than 300
cubic feet of matter i3 brought to the surface
from a considerable depth in the course of a
year. As this matter is generally of a rather
fine nature and easily dissolved in water it
rapidly washes away and forms a thin sheet
on the surface. I am inclined to believe that
large areas of our wet woods and the open
borderlands along our Streams are completely
overturned to tho depth of two feet or moro
in the course of half a century by the actions
of these animals.
In open grounds, in natural prairies or
grass plains, the smaller species of ants are
extremely effective agents in overturning
the soils. Wherever the ground remains for
some time unplowed it becomes occupied by
theso creatures. In the sandy soils of east
era Massachusetts tho overturning accom
plished by these creatures assumes a geologi
cal importance. For many years I have
been puzzled by tho fact that tho glacial
terraces and plains of this region were ex
tensively covered to the depth of a foot or
more by a coating of fine sand and very " perfectly at tery small cost, without incon

Gen. Slocum commanded the right of the
Union line at Gettysburg, caving ms head
quaters on Culp's hill. In speaking of Get
tysburg Gen. Slocum said:
"It was undoubtedly the greatest battle of
the war. Gen. Meade said to me on the field
that if Lee attacked him at a certain poms
he would beat him. It is a singular fact that j
the attack was made in just the way that,
