He Became Savage anil Tried to Jump out pf the W«e«>n. ; Just before 5 o'clock Monday even'g, a bJaclfeAuguB, bull made things lively for a few minutes at the corner of East Third, street and Second avenue. The animal was tied in a wagon, which was also occupied by two men. When the 5 wagon reached the above mentioned fiorner, the animal got savage, and within a few seconds, had driven bis companions over the sides of the box.

The Entertainment Committee reports places provided for 2,000 people and the canvassing to be going on with good results. The High School Cadets are actively drilling'for the event; they will be furnished with guns from "the State armory at Springfield. Three war song concerts will be given in one of the churches, employing the best talent in the city. The following la taken from the Chicago Inter Ocean: "At the coming G. A.

There Are Others Also—Morrison, Clinton, Moline Hare » Visit From the Mjstcrlona Ship of the Cloodg-Raced with » Railroad Flyer and Beat It. The people of Lyndon were all excited Monday night over the appearance of the so-called airship. Tile thing made its appearance about 8:30 o'clock and remained in view for about an hour, It was first discovered in the north western heavens and was thought to be a star, On looking later, however, someone discovered that the thing had changed its position In a most unbecoming manner. As many a§ fifteen or twenty people gazed longhand lovingly at the moving •light. Each claims, with all the conviction there is in him, that the light was not that of a star and that it moved about at a rapid rate of speed. It seemed to be steered in several di-f rections and, finally.started on Its journey toward Morrison.' At that point it took a turn and the last that was seen of it, it was "ekootlng" towards Clinton like the windr-The-Lydonites claim that the ship's lights are of vnri- ous colors and that they seemed to be in front of a reflector, which could be shifted as that of & search light. Be it said to the credit of the Lyndon people that no one saw the shape of the boat, nor did they discover how many passengers it carried or who was at the helm. The vision is the talk of the town today. Morrison was also afllicted. The best citizens of that place say the machine came over from Lyndon and hovered over the city for a short time, afterwards departing for Clinton. The story of the Morrison people is practically the same as that of those at Lyndon. Moline, III., April 12.—Special Tele- gra,m.—The so-called airship has been twice seen within two days by reputable citizens of Moline and vicinity. Saturday night the thing hovered over this city and finally disappeared to the northward. .This morning about 8:30 the craft itself was seen. ,by farmers living on the Rock River bottom, three miles south of here., They describe it as having a cigar-shaped body with broad wing-like attachments on each side. It was too high in the air for the farmers to see the details of the vessel. Burlington, la,, April 12 —Engineer F. L. Bullard, on engine No. 950 of the Fast Mail, says he saw the airship. He "states' that when he left Chicago this morning he saw a huge machine in the sky moving along in the same direction as his train.

When he again looked out the ship was some distance ahead.

Mr, Bullard thought that this aerial schooner must have been traveling at thereto of a 150 mfles per hour. SCHULTZE TO RETURN. He Will Preach at TrlultyJChurch la Sttir- Another ^ Mr. and Mrs. John G. Haglock returned Monday evening from Geneseo, where they have been in attendance at the United Evangelical Conference", which closed at noon today. Mr, Haglock says the conference was largely attended and that the sessions were of unusual interest. He also brings the good news that Rev, B. R, Schultze, the pastor of Trinity church, has been returned to this charge for another year. Mr. Schultze is a young man of rare ability and everybody will be pleased with the good fortune of the Trinity people. It was through his efforts that the present pretty little church was built and .that the organization is so flourishing. The appointments of pastors was made thia morning, but Mr. Haglock managed to get the above choice bit of interesting information from the Presiding Elder before he started for home. Sterling heartily welcomes Mr. Schultze and his wife back to the city, —Col. Moses Dillon has just received a basketful of eggs from F, II. Sheila- barger & Son and he will put them in bis incubator at once. Mr. Shellabarger is said to have the business down BO fl nejthat he can select the eggs which will hatch pullets.

A society exlBtg in Holland for th« purpose of reforesllngtbewaste places. This sand dunes receive a good deal.of attention. John Qlfford, a resident of Amsterdam, Holland, writes in Garden and Forest M follows: The Dutch dunes are similar to those of New Jersey, and unless the soil Is covered it is shifted by. wind and "wave. More than 4,000 acrea of land in the neighborhood ef the town of Bergen is owned by the government, This is very much Ilka the dune land toear Avelon, on -the Jersey shore. There are reeldences surrounded by large trees in the lee of the Dutch dunea, but everything has been planted, even the famous forest between the Hague and. Schevtageri, the Atlantic City of Holland, and it -will cost the government at least 200,000 gulden to plant Its dune lands In forest. Many private holders In this region are not in favgr of this work, some preferring to see It In its unproductive state, mainly for hunting purposes. The principal game, however, Is rabbits, and their extermination has .been decreed because they are very destructive. Thirty years ago experiments wero begun by the famous geologist Staring for the planting of the dunes, but the work was frowned upon and discontinued; the trees which- he planted still remain. In the eastern and southern parts of Holland there are vast stretches of rolling heath lands, a continuation of the Luneberg- er Helde In Hanover, which stretches through Schleswlg-Holsteln and Denmark to 'near the Zuyder Zee In Holland. The soil Is sand and gravel, mainly glacial drift, in" which seen Irregular ice-worn pieces of rock from the Scandinavian peninsula. There are reasons for Uelievltfgr Tltrthe that at one time this . region was partly forested. The, names of places in old Dutch ,• often mean forest or wood, and Mr. J. II. Schober, the pioneer of heath plant- Ing In Holland, found part of the trunk of a large oak buried deep In the ground In his plantation at Scho- venhorst. A few sheep can live upon the scanty herbage, and as eoon as a little, humus forms on the surface it is 'removed by the peasants to mix with manure. The Seating force • of winds and, rains has compacted and leached the surface soil. Low heather and crisp lichens cover the ground, reminding one of the sterile fields In southern New Jersey. It is even more barren than the fire-swept plains of Ocean county, in that state.- With work, this whole heath can be re' claimed. The huge experiment which Mr. Schober has had the patience and .patriotism to begin proves that trees will grow there. A careful working and a little enrichment of the soil are all that are needed at first..; When Mr. Schober began his plantation at Putten, 40-years ago, it was all a desert heath. Conifers from all parts of the world are growing there luxuriantly, and, although his experiments will hot be complete for years to coine, they show, at least, that a great variety of conifers will grow on the heath lands of Holland, and that certain species are, of course, much better adapted to the soil and climate than others. Many tests must be made' before conclusions as to the very best varieties are warranted. Mr. Schober has planted also large quantities of Scotch pine,, from "which " he receives ~a~ revenue.~~Tnis wood Is cut and carefully sorted, and the poles are shipped to the Belgian • inlnes. What surprised me most on this remarkable plantation was to eee species from the Rocky Mountains and the Atlas' Mountains thriving in these heathlands. The most beautiful trees in this large pihetum, as I saw them, wero Abies nobills and Cedrus Atlan- tlca. A great deal of private planting has been done in Holland with very little encouragement from the government. ' In .the southern part there are large areas in Scotch pine and coppice oak.- The willow has been planted In immense- quantities along the Lek, the Rhine, the Maas and Waal. In the sandy heath regions, much of the soil has been improved by planting one of the lupines, Lupinus luteus, a beautiful plant, which may be useful in America as a green manure, since it seems to flourish on ivery sandy Boil. The American locust, Roblnia pseudacacla, is a favorite tree here, since it grows well on poor soils, and it is quite the custom to plant it along railroad embankments. It is also a favorite shade tree in many German cities, and, when properly trimmed, it baa few equals for the purpose. Our wild cherry, Prunua aerotlna, also• seems to thrive on the heath lands. Cold Soil.—What is usually called "cold" soil IB due mostly to excess of water, which finds no outlet by sinking into It, Jiad_LOorced tQ_.ejyapor r aifL from the surface. Tils takes so much heat from the eoll that vegetation will not grow roudlly in it. Hence the cold Boll Is very often .thin as well, coming quickly to I lie clay on which itC rests. If this clay Is underdmined air and frost will pulverize it, enabling deep- rooted plants to penetrate the soil and enrldh It. So long as Boil Is filled with stagnant water it will only support feras and mosses, whoso roots run near the surface.—Ex.
