The State Department of Agricul- j
ture is now sending out the June
monthly bulletin. This Issue goes lb
about 60.000 farmers. scattered in
the 100 counties in this State. The
bulletin contains an article on "Why
We Cultivate the Soil." Many peo?
ple. It Bays, think the soil is culti?
vated simply to kill the weeds, but
It shows there are mote important
reasons. The soil Is cultivated to
loosen It. to let the air In, as the
plant roots need air. as well as man.
The loose soil also lets In heat to
warm up the soil and hasten plant
growth, an.: cultivation loosens the
soil to allow the tiny roots to push
out in their growth and. lastly, the
cultivation Is to kill the weeds. The
art'ele fully explains the Importance
of these Important results that are
obtained through cultivation of the
Another article explains fully where
the fertilizer materials are gotten that
go to make up the fertilizers that the
farmers buy. and the pail the dif?
ferent fertilizer ingredients take in
the growth of plants. Another dis?
cusses the importance of raising more
live stock in Virginia.
Commissioner Koincr urges farmers I
to save their crimson clover seed. He i
mentions one farmer in Amelia county
who sold SI,100 worth of crimson
clover seed from his farm last year.
This man is a newcomer from Illinois.

His Transfer to Office of Lord!
High Chancellor Followed
Quarrel With Grey.
FEW people nr.- aware of the real
reason which led Lord llaldano j
to be transferred from the Bocre- i
laryshlp of St.it.- tor War to tho
otrtre of j.ord nigh Chancellor. Tho
truth In. that It was brought about
by a bitter <iuiirrel between him and
sir Edward Grey, the Foreign Min?
ister. Indeed, had not Lord Italdane
been compelled t" ghc up the Secre?
taryship for the Woolsack, Sir Ed?
uard would probably have resigned.
It may be remembered that some
months ago Lord llaldane went to Ber?
lin, on what was generally understood
to be a mission from the King and
Cabinet to the Kaiser, in order to con
fer about wavy and means of settling
tho existing Anglo-German differences,
thus relieving the tension between tiie
two powers.
Lord llaldane spent a week at Ber?
lin, had several exhaustive conversa?
tions with the Kaiser. Chancellor Both
mann-Hollweg. and Foreign M'nlster
Klderten-Waechter, in the course of
which eighteen points were arranged
on which England and Germany were
to negotiate.
I^ord llaldane look this matter od
referendum. promising that within
eight days the British cabinet would
Intimate its views on these proposals
to the Oerman government.
A fortnight passed, however, with?
out any answer, w.hereupon a quiet con?
fidential question was addressed to the
English Foreign office from Berlin
about the matter,
Tiie reply was altogether amazing-?
for it was to the effect that neither
the Secrettu-y of State for Foreign Af?
fairs nor yet the British Cabinet, r-ould
give any expression to their views.
Mrice Ivord Haldane bad been to Berlin
without their knowledge, authority or
warrant: In one word, that his mission
was self-assumed, and that whatever
be had done in Berlin he had done In
h purely private capacity.
This disavowal of I/ord Kaldnne nat?
urally confirms the report that whUo
at Berlin he committed England to
opinions that did not meet with the
approval of his colleagues. What ren?
dered this action particularly discon?
certing, and a disavowal Imperative,
was the fact that he was Secretary
of State at the time.
In olden days there was only one
Secretary of State, but as tho British
Empire grew, the labor of tho office
became too onerous for any one man.
and accordingly first one was added,
and then another, until now- there are
four Secretaries of State, namely, for
Foreign Affairs, for the Home. Depart?
ment, for War. and for India.
Of course there are a number of
nets of the Sovereign which require
tiie co-operation of a Secretary of State
also. The four represent, from a legal
point, the same office. Thus, when a
royal birth occurs, the Constitution de?
mands the presence of a Secretary of
State, so as to relieve the reigning
bouse from any of those popular im-!
putations of "suppositUIon" to which
in former times, notably In the reign
of James II.. It has been subjected
Strictly speaking, this duty fulls to
the lot of the Secretary for the Home
Department?this said without any In?
tention of a jok<?but failing him. one
of the other Secretaries of State can
take hU place; while no other member
of the cabinet, not even the Frontier, Is
allowed to do so.
In the same way. one Secretary of
State ram take over the administra?
tive duties of another In case of nec
css(ty, and without needing any new
commission from the sovereign.
The German Emperor and govern?
ment had every right to believe that
Lord llaldane. as one of the Secretaries
of state, was duly empowered to speak
for his King, an.l for his fellow Secre?
tary. Sir Edward Grey.

former salary. it has been made 1m- j
possible for him to Interfere any fur- I

Grey. Moreover. It was strictly nec?
essary for the King to remove from,
his hands the seals of Secretary of!
State, in order to ompuasUc In tier
man eyes the government'! disapprov?
al of his act.
Sir Edward Grey's patience has al?

to the vigorous resistance of the ladles,

ran to their assistance. John Carlen
