"11 Affleck St., South Melbourne. April 17th, 1897. To the Minerva Company. Dear Sirs: Having taken your Tonic at intervals during the past two years I have pleasure in being able to certify that it has proved a distinct success. Acting upon the recommendation of my medical adviser to take a Tonic when necessary, I choose the Minerva, and have every reason to be satisfied with the result; so much so that I always keep it in the house. When from stress of work I feel run down I have recourse to the Tonic, which In variably has the desired effect, as after a few doses I am right again for some months. Feeling that the Tonic has done me much good it will be a pleas ure to recommend it, and I have no objection to you publishing this report. I am. Yours, etc., . L. HART." Gonsalves & Ch, Ltd.

Has Fallen Back Into State or Uncii'M? vation-Rapid Revival of Production Out of the Quest on. (Louisiana Planter.) Views of German officials regarding the condition of Cuba as a producer of sugar: It will be of interest to you to learn in what light the state and prospects of things in Cuba are considered in our official circles. In a recent session of the budget committee of the Reichstag (you would say the committee on ways and means), the secretary of the Treas ury said he would not underrate the danger threatening us from Cuba, but he did not think it so alarming as some people apparently believe it to be. The Island of Cuba is in a large degree fal len back in a state of uncultivation and years of hard work would be required to restore its former productive capac ity, and .there is now great want of labor. Of the white working men GO per cent have emigrated, disappeared in some way or other or are dead, whilst the colored population is by the war demoralized to the last degree, and he thinks that to replace the lost lab oring forces would be extremely diffi cult. On account of this condition of the island he holds that a rapid re vival of production, as is thought like ly to come to pass by some persons, is for somgyears out of the question, which opinion has been confirmed by different members of the Reichstag who are well acquainted with the eco nomical, industrial 'and agricultural conditions and capacities of Cuba. Per sons who perhaps had an interest to do so, estimated this year's crop already as high as 500,000 tons, but from pres ent appearance it is by no means cer tain that last year's figures will be reached inasmuch as for the time being only 85 centrals are in operation as against 99 at the same period last year. The sugar dealers of this country continue complaining of the increasing use of saccharine and similar sweet stuffs, which are now palmed off to the general public not only as being quite inoffensive to the human health, but as the healthiest sweet and the cheapest article in that line imagin able, which unfortunately cannot be prevented logically. Of course, this is much to the discomfiture of the fabri cants, whose product is subject to a heavy tax, whilst the competing stuff goes out scot free. The use that brew eries used to make of saccharine, sweetening the beer by .means of it, is, it s true, forbidden, but this provision is artfully circumvented by breweries giving a certain quantity of the article to their cart drivers who deliver the beer kegs to the saloon keepers, and if the latter desire to add saccharine to the beer, they are at liberty to do so, as only the industrial use of it is pros ecuted. THE DAILY PAPER. The daily newspaper is by far the safest and most certain method of reaching the public. It should nol be difficult for any intelligent man who has lived for any time in a commun ity to know just what papers will serve him as advertising mediums. It isn't at all necessary to examine the books in the newspaper's counting room or to get their affidavits on circulation. A paper that you read yourself and that your neighbors read and respect and that you know to be widely read and respected, you can safely rely on as a satisfactory medium for reaching people of your own kind. In a general way, if you don't want to waste your advertising appropria tion, avoid all schemes presented to your attention by plausible strangers, and shun all publications concerning which you know nothing, except what you may be told by an urbane and voluble solicitor. The advertiser who sticks to the solid, substantial and in fluential papers and fills his space judiciously, is sure of getting returns. John P. Lyons, in Albany (N. Y.) Argus. AT THE GAZETTE OFFICE.
