It should have moisture through tho dry season, either by springs that keep it moist underneath, or by inigation on the surface. It should ho plowed deep, and well pulverized if there is a mixture of clayey loam. Tim niws should be three to four feet apart, and the seed planted two fect apart iu the row.

Climati: ami Statixk. Tho Jauntal ihs Goiwnirnittce Mnltciiet notices book recent ly published by Dr. Fousar, on the influence of climate and physical agents on man. The author maintains that the human race is cos inoiiolttan, since it can live everywhere, aud by its intellectual lowers neutralizes the evil elfects of physical agents on its organism. To this Dr. Oalfee demurs, objecting that man docs not perpetuate his race under all cli mates; that he may live, it is true, in any climate to which lie is taken in the prime ot lite, but that sterrility is often the coiisc- oucnev, .ind that at any rato his off.prSng w-ill die at an early age. However this may be, Dr. FoUsac'ji book contains much interresting matter, and the chapter on stature contains a great many new and intcrresting facts. On this subject Dr. A.
