Soil and Plant Facts.
There Is probably no uaiuraleleinunt,
barring the air we breathe, with which
we come in closer couUet than the
soil under our feet, yet at the same
time no element about which we pos
sess less specltle Information. It Is a
.wondrous realm, full of fascination
and Interest, farmers' bulletlu -No.
245, Issued by the United States tie
partmeut of agriculture and entitled
"Renovation of Woruout .Soils." con
tains a mine of Information on the sub
ject and should be lu the hands of
every farmer and be studied as a
primer of agriculture. It is from this
we glean the following facts about the
soil and plant life: The soil consists
of organic and Inorganic- maiTer. L'u
der the first heading are Included all
elements in the soil that are subject
to vital processes (growth and decay;;
under the second, those elements that
are not subject to these changes i. e.,
minute portions of stoue and S'''ve'
The elements named are permuted by
the soil air and water. It Is the latter
the moisture In the soil that con
tains the plant food substances, and It
Is these that possess most Interest and
value from the human standpoint.
These substances are divided into' two
classes, according to their ultimate
source. The soil furnishes nine of the
thirteen chemical elements used In
plant growth phosphorus, potassium,
calcium, sodium, iron, silicon, chlorine
and sulphur. Nearly all varieties of
rock particles, of which the soil quite
largely consists, contain more or less
of these elements. Every year the soil
water dissolves a tblu surface Uyer
from each particle, and It Is this solu
tion which furnishes the plant Its min
In addition to the elements named,
the plant In its growth requires hydro
gen, which It secures from water
(which Is a compound of hydrogen und
oxygon); oxygen, which It secures part
ly from water and partly from the air;
carbon, which is secured from the car
bonic acid gas in the air, and nitrogen,
which in many respects Is the most Im
portant of till the plant food elements.
As it la not found in the rock particles
of the soil, plauts have to depend for
their supply upon decaying organic
mattermanure and other fertilizers.
Being very soluble, the nitrates quickly
wash out of the soil unless appropriat
ed by growing crops, It Is lu supply
ing nitrogen to the soil that the le
gumes possess so great value for the
agriculturist. There Is a certain spe
cies of bacteria that can use atmos
pheric nitrogen, the supply of which Is
unlimited, and the clover, bean and pea
families have learned to swap work with
them. When these bacteria are pit-scut
In n soil In which leguminous crops
are growing they Invade tho roots of
the plants und live there, their preseuce
belug shown by swellings- tubercle.
Nitrogen from the soil air niters into
the routs, where tho bacteria appropri
ate It, manufacture au abundance of
nitrates nud give It to the plant In re
turn for starch. The tls.ues of the
plants thus become very rich in ultio
gen compound, which they set free
when decay sets in and which are
available foreauy growing crop, A
coudltlou of soil that Ht.ewUe greatly
favors the growth of the pliint Is pro
duced by humus, decaying vegetable
matter, which may or may not b rich
lu nitrates, but which renders possible
a proper circulation of air In the soil
and those chemical actions which ac

Chicago, April 3. Tho formal an
nouncement ot tho overthrow of John
Alexander Dowio was made by Ovi'4
oer John (J. Spelcher, who presided
over a mooting of 5,000 members ot
the church lu the labernacle at Zlon
City. ' The crowd which tilled tho
great structuro and which formerly
answered "yes" and "no" when Dowio
nodded or shook his head, applauded
whon ho was accused. Overseer
Spcaelier called out I lie numbers of
chapters and verses of scripture and
in tesponso tho various church ofll
ciala and prominent members who
occupied seats upon the platform quot
ed the passages called for. The new
dictator of Ziou's fortunes, Wilbur
Ulenn Vollva, responding to tho refer
ence given him, quoted: "Thou shnlt
not steal." This sentiment was greet
ed with vociferous applause. Mrs.
Jane Howie, wire of the "ilrst apostle,"
followed. "Thou shalt not bear false
witness against thy neighbor." was
John Dowio lias been deposed as
a religious leader, suspended from
membership in the church he founded,
shorn of his temporal possessions as
far as they are located in Zlon City,
the homo of his church, and warned to
accept the situation quietly lest worso
things befall him. The active revolt
against the leadership of Dowle was
foreshadowed when Overseer Voliva,
who had been placed by Dowle In
charge of the churth, while he sought
health in Jamaica and Mexico, an
nounced that he would no longer ac
cept the orders of IJjwIe, who had, he
declared, grossly mismanaged the af
fairs of tho church. The members ot
tho church, Including the wife and son
of Uowfe, agreed to stand with him.
The llrst move looking to his over
throw was made by Overseer Voliya,
who holds the power of attorney from
Dowle. In company with several
other ofllcers of the church, VoltVa
hastened to Waukegan, the county
seat of Lake county, In which Zlon City
Is situated, and filed for record a war
ranty deed transferring to Deacon
Alexander Granger all the leal estate
held by Dowio in Zlon City. He also
executed u bill of sale to Deacon
Granger putting him in possession of
all the personal properly of Dowle,
including his hoises and carriages,
books, and even his bed. Later Gran
ger conveyed these to Vollva and tho
overseer appointed by Dowle had not
only succeeded him as the head of tho
church, but was the .holder of all his
propei ty as well.
Regarding the polygamous teach
ings mentioned in the message to
Dowle, Overseer Voliva declared that
he would issue a statement regarding
them later, when Dowle has been given
an opportunity for reply. Ho said,
however, that tho teachings had not
been public, but wore of a private

Chicago May Own but Not Operate
Street Railway Lines.
RESULT OF THE ELECTION
Proposition Providing For Issuance of
Certificates For the Purchase of
Street' Railways Carries, but the
Operation Suggestion Is Lost Vote
on Saloon Question.
Chicago, April 4. Tho city of Chi
cago can proceed to acquire and con
trol street railways but cannotoperato
them. This is the result of tho city
electiou held Tuesday, in which the
question of the municipal ownershlpot
the street railways was tlo vital issue.
At tho same time the voters, while de
claring I hat the city snail not proceed
to operate tho railroads, declared that
as a question of public policy It would
bo desirable for the city to do so.
Three propositions were submitted
to the voters, the tlrst of which was:
"Shall tho city of Chicago proceed to
operate street railways?" This prop
osition required 00 per cent of tho to
tal vote cast lu order to become effec
tive. The second proposal involved tho
upprovul ot an ordinance previously
passed by tho city council providing
for Issuance of street railway certifi
cates in amount not to exceed $7G,000,
000 for the purchase, ownership and
maintenance of tho street railways.
This was carried by about :i,S0O votes.
Tho third question, which was simply
on the question of public policy and
has no legal effect whatever, la, "Shall
tho city council proceed without doluy
to secuie tho municipal ownership and
operation of tho street railways under
the Mueller law instead of granting
franchise's to prlvnto companies" Tills
proposition was carried by about 3,000
Following aro tho correct figures on
tho election; Tho total vote cast on
the question of municipal ownership
wus 2:!I.17l. Of this number 120,011
woro cast In favor of municipal oper
ation ef tho sheet railways. und 110,
2C0 against it. In order to begome
binding the proposition to operate the
railways should have received 138,703
votes. It thorefore fell short of tho
required number by 17,792 votes. Tho
proposition to issue $75,000,000 in
street railway certlcates wus carried
by a vote of 110.00S ngainst 100,(iC0,
Tho declaration of public policy was
carried by 111,802 to 108,025.

has had lu the past.
Mayor Dunne's Views.
Mayor Dunne construed the passago
of tho $75,000,000 certlllcatea and pub.
lie policy propositions u a victory for
municipal ownership, but he expressed
ids disappointment over tho dofoat ot
tho proposition for municipal owner
ship. He said: "I am disappointed be
cause tho victory Is not complete,
The important proposition, however,
at tho present time, Is for the Issuance
of the certificates, and tills has been
carriod. I regret, howovor, very much
that wo did not get the 'necessary ma
jority to enable us to legally operate
tho street railway linos. But this will
not prevent us from again getting bo
tore tho people afer we have tho
street railway lines and usklng for the
necessary power to operate. Tho peo
ple will vote for the operation with a
big inujoAiy t the proper time."
Besides the question of municipal
ownership the issue was made fn
many of tho aldcrmanlc contests of
whether the saloon licenses of the city
shall bo ?500 or $1,000. The low figure
was in existence up to March 5, when
the city council by a close vote, and
after it hard fight, passed nn ordinance
raising the amount to $1,000. The
liquor Interests made a strong fight
against every alderman who was up
for re-election who had voted for the
license of $1,000, Of the I." men
against whom they put their inlluonco
12 were elected and three defeated.
Of tho nine aldermen u for re-election
who voted for the continuance of the
$500 license nil were returned to their
seal3 in the council. There is little
danger, however, that the high license
will be repealed.
