Th Cultivation of Peanuts.

Ho says:
Having been formerly engaged in cultiva

planting, I think that a short article on thr;
subject would bo acceptable to your agricul
tural friends,
Siuidy soil is the best, a gravelly loam tho
next best. 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. It is sufliclont that the cultivator
bo run through the rows in only onodirection.
Tho nut should be shelled for planting, but

of climate and physical agents on man. The
author maintains that the human race is cos

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

climate to which lie is taken in the prime ot

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. Ivtour, in his review of
tho volume, expresses himself as follows:
