AGICoviTuIT 114 CInII.-Ueneral
Grant, in speaking of the methods of
agriculture in Uliina, said that he was
shown a piece of land which had been
under ouLtivatiLon every year for 5,000
years wittiout deterioration of the for
tility of the soil. This resut Is effee,
ted by returning to the soil everything
taken from it. Fish constitutes a large
proportion of tle food of the yeople),
.nd all the offal not consumed lor Iku
man food Is carefully applied to the
soil, and fish Is a great fertilizer.
Even the roots of wheat-wheat, is
grown to a very limited extent-are
taken and rotted In a compost, heap and
returned to the soll. All the leaves
and garbage are utilized in the same
uanner. Ieo said: "Fataines occtir in
ui.e interior of China, In which thou
sands die of starvation. This is due to
the want of facilities for transportation.
iII the aggregate the country Produces
etnough to support even the -tense life
of Cnina, but, inl s9om1e seasons tlere are
portions of the country where crol)s
are total or partial failures, %s ile in
these same seasons crops are abundant
and successful in other parts. Facili
ties for transportation would enable
the more favored districts to supply the
destitution in the localities ut want,
but no such facilities exist.
CosMETIcS IN BUTTER.--ThiO inas of
the people have nto idea of tihe extent
of thle artificial coloring of butter.
There is, coimparatively spietikinig, no
butter sold it this iourket wiil is not
so colored. We do not state this fact
for the ptrposc of alarming the but.ter
eating publie, for as a rule the coloring
matter used is perivetly harmless, nud4
if It does not add to tile intrinsic valute
of the product, it has the negative me
'it of' not detracting from the (iitality.
The principal color used is the seed of
the annatto, i berry growting exteiisive
ly inl Brazil. ItI is slihly aroma)Itie,
and is entirely harmless when used
pure. It ilmll)arts thle rich golden color
to butter which consumers so ntch va
Jue, alnd which co little pure iutter
possosses. When impure annatto is
used it is n 111 he fitilt01' the dati r) lan),
but, of' the mnerclhat tt of wihom11 lie )1o
cures It, and as the price of the oure
urticle is not initch above ilhe a(iulter
alits, there is little or no incent.iye to
dishonesty in this paiticultar. The
principal otlier coloring matter used is
turmerle, wvhleh is alp.iteier-tly harm

r FALSE AND TRUE.
We extract from Dr. IRadway's "Ti eatise on
disease and Its cure," as follows:
List of Diseases Cured by
Radway's Sarseparillian Resolvent.
Chronic Skin Diseases, Carles of the Done,
Humors in the Blood, Sorofulous DIse tsos, Bad
or unnal ural Habit of Body, Syphilis and Vene
real. FcVer gores. Chronic or old Ulcers, Salt
Riheum, Rickets, White Swolling, Scali Head,
Uterine Atfections, Cankers, Glandular Sw 11
Ings, Nodeq. Wasting and Decay of the no y.
1imples and Blolies. Tumors, Dyspepsia, K d
ney and Bladder Diseases, Chronic lih uniatism
and Gout, consumption, Gravel and Calculous
Deposits, and varieties of the above- complaints
to which sometimos are given Apeclous names.
We assert that there is no known remnedy that
possesses the curative power over those dis.
Wases that RADwAY's IXso.VNT furnishes. It
cures, step by stop, surely, from the founda
tion, and restores tho injured parti to their
sound condition.*The wastes of tihe body
are stopped and lealtihy blood is sup
alied to the mysteen, from which now ma
turlat is fortued. This Is the flsst corrective
noer of RADWAY'S RKsOLVENT. In cases where
iho ysitem has been Falivited. and Mercury,
Quicksilver., Corrosive Sublimate have wscumu
Jated and become deposited in the Dones, joint4
etc., causing caries of t he bones, ricket s. sDinal
curvatures, contortions, white sweltingi, Var
cose veins. etc., the SAUSAPARII.LIAN will resolve
away tho30 deposits an a exterminate the virus
of the disease from the system. -
If those who are taking these medicines for
the cure of Chronic, Scrofulous or Syphilitic di- -
Pases, however slow nity b, the cure. "icel bt
ter," ant find their general health improving,
their flesh and weight increasing, or even keep
