; 11 y tsenators Root and Heyhurn and was
advocated by a large number of sena-
tors. fixators Clark of Wyoming and
Itailey took the pusition that each ante
'eluld have the right to prescr. its

"It tjes far clearer vision than mine
to see in the bill any violation of the con-

1 ciared Mr. Clark-
No action sat taken on the bill.
The only important action taken was
on a bill opening to settlement to unal-
lotted land in the Pine Ridge Indian
reservation in South Cakota.
Early in the day Senator Aldrich re-
- ported from the committee on public ex-
penditures a bill creating a permanent
: commission for the regulation of methods
of government expenditure.

Air-Nitrates in Germany
Consul General A. M. Thackara of ter-
lln answers as follows the queries of an
American correspondent regarding the
manufacture of alr-nltratea and the
status of farming In Germany:
Atmospheric nitrogen Is utilized. In
making nitrates for fertilizing purposes.
In accordance with two general systems
In Germany as well as In Norway Italy
and other European countries and In
Canada. n The formation of the so-
called calca eous nitrogen tkalckstlck-
stoff) which has the chemical formula
Ca (ON) N. and which is formed bv
(passing nitrogen over heated ft cfurii
carbide or through a heated mixture of
lime and charcoal and (2) the direct com-
bination of the elements In the air-oxvgen
and nitrogen by the use of the electric
spark and the formation of nitrate by
bringing these combinations Into eontct
with the pijoper calcium or other com-
ponents. There are several processes by means
of which the nitrogen which combines
with the calcium carbide in the forma
tion of calcareous nitrogen is separated
from Uie oxygen In the air. One Is bv
passing air over the copper coils by-
means of which the oxygen Is removed.
Another process Is to obtain free nitrogen
by the partial evaporation of liquefied
air. The great ex Dense attend nir this
latter process renders it Impracticable
and the nitrogen so obtained Is still
much mixed with oxygen coinoounds.
Nitrogen Is also obtained bv one Ger
man firm In Hamburg and Hanover
by cooling the gases of combustion and
lemoving the Impurities by passing the
gases through retorts filled with copper
and copper oxides and then through soma
substance that absorbs the carbon ox-
ide. QUALITIES OF PRODUCT SHCON D
The so-called calcareous nitrogen ob-
tained by tho various processes is a
grayish substance containing about 20
per cent nitrogen. As a fertilizer it is
generally supposed to be as efficient as
ammonium sulphate and but little In-
ferior to. saltpeter. The exact effect of
the cyanide in the compound .Is as yet
not understood. By heating the whole
of the nitrogen in the compound Is
changed Into ammonia from which am-
monium sulphate may be formed. The
practicability of the production of calcar-
eous nitrogen depends upon cheap power
supply anu nence tne plants are gener-
ally located where water power Is avail-
able. The substance is produced in many
different countries and the estimated to-
tal production for 1K8 was about 4o0uU
The 'eeond system by which nitrates
are obtained by the direct combination of
the oxygen and nitrogen of the air is
much more recent in its development
than .the above. After numerous at-
tempts had been nade in various coun-
tries the Norwegian inventors. Birkland
and Eyde finally succeeded in making
' the process Industrially practicable (de-
scribed in a monograph on ".Manufacture
of Alr-N'Itrates" recently published by
me Dureau oi manuiaciurersi. Accord-
ing to their system the end of each
of the electric poles through which a
current is passing is exposed to the ac-
tion of a magnet which causes the elec-
tric spark to spread out into a disk-
like flame. This flame la surrounded by
some material tKat resists combustion
thus leaving a disk-shaped inclosure
through which the atmosphere is sucked.
As the atmosphere at which this reaction
takes place Is very high and as the at-
mosphere passes comparatively rapidly
through the flame only from 1 to 2 per
cent of the elements in the air Is trans-
formed. The compounds formed begin
to decompose when their temperature is
lowered and therefore methods are de-
vised to rapidly decrease their tempera-
ture to the point at which they can form
more stable products. For this purpose
the compounds are passed through an
evaporation apparatus and after their
temperature has been reduced to about
60 degrees Reaumur they are passed Into
an oxidation chamber and oxidized Into
nitrogen dioxide from which the nitrates
are made. The farthest advance in this
system has been made in Jsorway prin-
clpallv by the firm of Blrkeland T?vde.
and In factories located at Xotodden
Svalgfos and Chrlstiansand. A similar
system In Germany Is used at the
"Badlsche Anllln pnd Soda Fabrik" at
Ludwigsha'en am Rheln. The nitrates
so formed are quite pure and have thus
far been consumed principally in the In-
dustries only a small quantity having
been used as fertilizers.
COST OF PRODT'rTIO.V WORKS OF
The cost and volume of production of
each system depend upon the availability
of cheap power and th production of
calcareous nitrogen also depends upon
th prices at which lime and coal or
charcoal are available. One estimate
places the cost of the production of cal-
careous nitrogen containing 20 per cent
nitrogen at 270 to J15 francs (J62.ll to
l79) per metric ton (220i.tf pounds).
This would make the nitrogen in the
compound cost to 30 cents a kilo (2 i
pounds) while the cost of the nitrogen
In compounds formed by the direct com-
bination of the elements in the air Is
generally conceded to be less. The ex-
periments made with fertilizers of either
system. In comparison with Chilean Bait-
peter are generally favorable to the ar-
tificial product. In sandy soil the cal-
cium nitrate formed by the direct com-
bination of the elements In the air

The application of scientific Intensive
methods aid c' in organization. The
German farmer generally has much less
land at his disposal and hence can not
afford to have as large fields keep us
much stock nor have as Improved ma-
chines as the American. He must there-
fore make his fields yield as much as
possible by means of scientific fertiliza-
tion and care of the crop by drainage
and the avoidance of waste lie must
take proper care of his stock so as to
make it as useful and productive as
possible and on the other hand a much
larger percentage of the work must be
done by hand. Progressive Herman far-

Symptoms and Treatment Rule to
Observe in Gathering Fungi.
(From the Youth's Companion.)
Considering the frightful consequences
of gathering and eating poisonous mush-

It Is little short of marvelous that a per-

Into the fields and woods and pick and
eat any of the fungi growing there.
If you are thoroughly familiar with
some particular variety of edible mush-
room and can distinguish it at sight from
'all others however similar In color and

riety; but you must beware of other
kinds that resemble It for however -slight
the difference In appearance one may be
edible. and the other poisonous.
There is no absolute rule for distin-
guishing the edible from the poisonous
kinds and It Is better therefore to give
no general rules but to follow only one:
(Suspect every mushroom which you do
not know positively to be edible. To this
rule uerhar-s mav be added a sec.imi

agarles uid avoid them all for although
there is an edible species. It requires an
expert to tell it and the poison of anoth-
er species is deadly and there is no
known antidote for it.
The chief poisons In mushrooms' are
two in number muscarin and phallin.
The first of these produces svmntoms i h-
sembling those of alcoholic Intoxication
followed by convulsions or paralysis col-
lapse and death from heart failure. These
symptoms come on soon after the mush-
rooms have been eatem
In poisoning by phallin the symptoms
do not appear until several hours after
the meal. They resemble cholera begin-
ning with severe abdominal pain. Boon
followed by vomiting purging and col-
lapse. In all cases of mushroom poisoning
vomiting should be iniiuced as soon as
possible and a large dose of castor oil
may be given to hasten the elimination
of any as yet unabsorbed portions of the

heart and milk containing an abundan e

hypodermic injections of atropin are
often employed by physicians with bene-

The Bursting Boiler One of Things

"How can a fellow who has passed the
half century stone and a few more be-
sides help feeling that the whirlllgig Is
not what It used to be when even the
ways In which people get killed are not
what they were?" said a man who had a
box party on the celebration of a birth- !
day. "Every day we read of sudden
deaths on the football field or from au-
tomobile collisions and spills or drop
from flying machines. How did people get
killed before these modern death methods
"You hardly ever hear any more of a
sudden killing in any of the old time
ways. Is It because people do not take
the chances they used to take or is an
old fashioned killing out of date and not

hear of steamboat boiler explosions with
accompanying loss of life because steam-
boating has nearly pased away. That
used to be the horror that we expected to
find on the first page of our paper.
"Except In summer you seldom hesr of
an old time drowning. There Is as much
water as ever but people seem to kigw
how to take rare of themselves In boats
better In these days. Every town In the
country used to have Its list of sudden
deaths from runaways but seemingly
there are fewer of them nowadays.
"Cases of death by breaking through
the ice while skating used to be a frequent
fiiece of news. Is the Ice thicker now tnan
t was formerly or Is the skater smarter
than he was? when did you last read of
an old fashioned klling b- lightning?
People do not sleep on feather beds now
but somehow the lightning does not over-
take them as It did;
"The old graveyards have many graves
of men and boys who were kicked to
death by unruly horses or mules. It
would seem that when automobiles came

"There were times when th cradles
of the land were made empty by children
swallowing needles. Sewing machine
