How to Dispose of Potatoes Showing Rot. —A correspondent of an Irish newspa per claims to have heard of a plan to Htop the decay of diseased potatoes. He writes it as follows: "I have just heard of a plan to pr:serve partially diseased potatoes from furtbor decay, for pig-feeding. As this is a y par in which the disease is pre valent, very likely sueh a plan will be uni versally adopted. When the diseased po tatoes are sorted they should be taken aud boiled, after whioh they are allowed to dry by their owu heat, and thon put iuto bar p, covered .'hen cover rcls nnd pressed down in a with moistened yellow clay, the barrel and allow it to stand by until required fbr use.

Those who have no objection to the combina tion of the Bitters, as stated, will use HOOFLAND'S GERMAN TONIC BITTERS the stock Styles Ml They are both equally good, and contain the same medicinal vutucs, the choice between the two being a mere matter of taste, the Tonic being the most palatable. The stomach, from a variety of causes such as Indigestion, Dyspepsia, Nervous Debility, etc. is very apt to have its functions derauged. The Liver, sympathising as closely as It does with the Stomach, then becomes aflected, the result of which is the patient suffers from several or more of the following diseases : ' Constipation, Flatulence, Inward Piles, Fulness Blood to the Head, Acidity of the Stom ach, Nausea, Heartburn, Disgust for Food, Fulness or Weight in the Stomach, Sour Eructations, Sinking or Fluttering at the Pit of the Stom ach, Swimming of the Head, Hur ried or Difficult Breathing, Fluttering at the Heart, ( hoking or Sulfocutiug Sensations when in a Lying Posture, Dimness of Vision, Dots or Webs before the Sight, Dull Pain in the Head, Deficiency of Perspiration, ellowness of the Skin and Ey<s, Pain in the Side, Back, Chest. Limbs etc. Sudden Flushes of Heat, Burning in thê Flesh, Con stant Imagjnings of Evil, and Great Depression of Spirits. The sufferer from these diseases should exercise the greatest caution In the selection of a remedy for his case, purchasing only that which he is as sured from his investigations and inquiries, pos sesses true merit, is skilfully compounded, is free from injurious ingredients, and has established for itself a reputation for the cure of these diseas es.
