The matter was brought to the attention o tho rcichstag by an Agrarian member, when it presently appeared that the German government had already been making inquiry.

In one gramme of German wheat 14,000 to 23,000 bacteria were found; in Russian, 250,000 to !!00,000; in La Plattb wheat only 5,000. The sample which showed 850,000 bacteria in Rothstock showed fourteen days later in Berlin 150,0.00, so rapidly does the bacteria disappear. As regards the• character oi these bacteria, such as would endanger health were not found in a single sample, so the grain is absolutely harmless. But even the worst bacteria arc destroyed by the heat of the'oven. WAS A BLACKMAILING PLOT. ious big conventions at Millsbofo Match 14. Hancock county* Illinois, will meet in convention in March 7."
