A Vast Force Exerted Without Noise or
Demonstration of Any Kind.
Tt has long been known to scientific
men that the power of growth in the
vegetable kingdom is something mar
velous. There is no human engineering
which can compare in power with the
silent machinery of a forest on a spring
day. The force with which the sap
rises in the tree, without any apparent
cause, any propelling power like the
beating heart of man, is marvelous. It
has been estimated that the physical
energy of the sap in the plant is four
teen times that of the blood in man.
Some years ago President Clark, of
the Massachusetts Agricultural College,
succeeded by means of some interesting
experiments in measuring the power of
growth possessed by a squash. For this
purpose he harnessed it in iron, put it
in prison, and gave it a weight to lift.
Ho prepared a bed of rich compost to
give the plant every possible oppor
tunity for growth. On one end of this
bed he placed a box and in the box the
squash, enclosed in an iron basket-work.
The squash thus enclosed was placed in
the box in such a way that it could only
grow by pushing itself upward. Then,
on the top of the squash, a long bar of
timber was laid, in such a way that the
squash, in its upward growth, must
push this bar with it. Finally, on the
bar were hung weights, at such dis
tances from the squash as enormously
to increase their weight power, and.
consequently, the severity of the test
The result was that the squash steadily
pushed its way upwards, carrying the
bar and the increasing weight with it.
On August 21 it was lifting sixty pounds;
on September 15, fourteen hundred
pounds: on October 18. three thousand
one hundred and twenty pounds: on
October 31. five thousand pounds! How
much more it would have carried is not
known. For at this point the iron har
ness bent and cut into the rind of the
squash, which had obtruded so far
between the bands, that in order to ex
tricate the squash it was necessary to
cut the iron with a cold chisel, and draw
the pieces out endwise.
There is to our imagination some
thing irrand in the thought of a force so
vast exerted without noise or demon
stration of any kind, and apparently far
exceeding all the ordinary exigencies of
the plant. In every acre of well-cultiva
ted ground a power is silently at work
which transcends ma*s mightiest ma
chines bv almost as much as the infinite
transcends the finite.
Does it not give
a suggestion of the quiet power of cue
