Marble Rock Weekly, The (Newspaper) - April 12, 1900, Marble Rock, IowaThe Jet Elligett Leaf. Supplies to i in flu Utah Iti food Tyml makes a. Xot the least of the things which in Terest at the museum of the Carnegie Institute Are the models that illustrate animal Plant Anatomy. Perhaps the Plant is the More interesting machine than the animal for the animal has brain Power to direct it while the Plant Groves and carries on is affairs without even the excuse of the faint age of the higher creation. There is More or 01 similarity Between the animal Insp ii the line that Bruins make. The Plant goes ahead in its own Way pursuing its plans making no More mistakes than the human family make and living a life about As eventful. The seedling that lifts it head above the ground be gins a struggle for food and it would be interesting to find a human being who could be rooted to one spot and carry in successfully the Tusk of find ing food. In one of the big Glass cases in the Model room is seen the Leaf of a Plant enlarged Many times by the Aid of a Microscope. Inc Model the Leaf is. Seen to be a Complex creation instead a thin and simple bit of Green that which appears so thin As to have use except perhaps a Shade for the Straggler who chances to rest beneath it. Is equipped with one of the most interesting sets of machinery Ever de Vised. The surface of he Leaf is the feeder of the Plant. From the air is taken the Carrot ii acid Gas upon which the Plant lives. When the gases Are taken into the Interior of the Leaf and in that insignificant space a chem ical process is accomplished whereby Carbon and some of the attendant gases that the Plant thrives on Are converted into a form of starch which in turn is fed to the tree and from which it builds its foliage branches Flowers fruits and its Wood. The idea prevails in some quarters that the tree feeds from the material that the roots find in the ground. Tint that is a mistake. The Plant feeds upon the carbonic dioxide and nitrogen and other gases of the atmosphere and they find in the Earth a limited amount of material among which Are salts of Potash Lime the phosphates things which while trifling in Quality Are essential to the growth of the Plant. Probably As much As 913 per cent of nil that the plan feeds Ripon. And perhaps even More is taken from the air by the curious openings in the Leaf Are shown i a rude Way by the models in the museum. . The Cate organs inside the Leaf it is made into the living material which is the growing Plant and which in the course of development through being again food for those who live upon vegetable substances becomes the Materi Al of which animal life is made. The Plant is top origin of All life Exeter. That cringe 1 format Ion which is not yet highly enough to feed upon plants or which is i live form of Plant life in itself. Tim Plant Leaf provides food for the vegetable kingdom and he animal directly or indirectly lives upon the vegetable world. With vegetation wiped oif the Earth creation would be Fol Lowed by Universal deut i. Ail of the other machines which the models in the museum stand for have their be ginning in lie plaint Leaf which is the interesting Fountain of 1 it to Burch times. A successful Farmer.
