Government for losses sustained during the war being ever raid. These claims amount to over six millions of dollars.

: AGEICULTUML. The National Porosity of tno Soil. I often watch the habits of insects that imss part of their lives iu the ground Tlio female of tho seventeen year locust deposits her eggs iu tho twigs of tree.", but the young locusts, almost as soon as hatched, throw themselves to the ground, aud at onco pass into the earth. I have often been amazed that anything so young mid so feeble, could penetrate tho earth s rapidly, but they seem to have no dig ging to do. Everywhere there seem cracks and fissures, just wide enough for their free passago. It seems as easy for them to pass through earth as a fish through water. Why is it not just so with tho rootlets of plants!

In a dry season it doubles the crop." Is this true? If so, agriculture becomes at (nee a fixod science, and tho struggle for life that Darwin speaks ...
