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.,

Outlook in That Island
Viewed by Germans.
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.
