Says the San Francisco Journal of
Commerce: Our near neighbor is be

close attention of the business men

From 1537 to 1821 during the
period of Spanish rule the mines of
Mexico produced an estimated
amount of $2,086,269,703 of silver,
and $68,768,411 in gold the latter
forming a comparatively small per
centage of the whole, in fact little
more than California has produced
in a single year. From 1821 to 1880
the estimated amount of silver pro
duced was $900,658;309, and gold
$49,413,786, in all nearly a thousand
million dollars. The grand total is
$3,103,110,219, but a computation
based on the output of the Mexican
Mint probably more reliable, gives
$3,723,139,070. If we add to this
the product of the Pacific Coast of
the United States up to 1882, which
was about $2,297,246,186, wo have a
total of nearly seven thousand mil
lion of dollars produced on what was
formeily Mexican territory. The
world has witnessed nothing like
The stale of Chihuahua is consid
ered one of the richest in minerals in
the republic. It is divided into 20
cantons, where 120 mining districts
exist. In these d'stricts 575 mines
have been worked since the Spanish
conquest. It is noteworthy that
mines yielding only 16 ounces of sil
ver to 300 pounds of ore have been
abandoned because of their isolation
and want of laborers. The character
of this, the richest, Mexican mineral
district may, perhaps, be more fully
summarized by classifying the miner
al districts as follows: Gold, 14; silyer
541, copper, 4; load, 4 mercury, Ij
salt, 3, and coal 2.
The population of Mexico, consid
ering that immigration is almost
nothing, is increasing with grat
rapidity. It was 6,000,000 in 1808,
7,829,000 in 1S56, and is now 12,000,
000. It has doubled sinca the be
ginning of the present century, and
increased more than 50 per cent, in
26 years. With peace and industry
ruling it will not be long reaching
twenty millions. Its mines are still
thought to be the richest in the
world, and it is next door to us.
Importations from San Francisco
of a very small value per head would

Winter Rations for Poultry.
As staple food, nothing is better
and nothing Is so cheap as good In
dian corn, and one meal a day may
safely be of this grain, either .ground
or whole, says aii Eastern exchange.
Grinding is of less consequence for
poultry than for the larger nimals,
as every bird carries a Complete mill
for this purpose, and puts in a new
run of stones as often as it can get to
the ground. A variety of grain is
always acceptable; wheat screenings,
buckwheat, oats, and rye, the last
rather sparingly. Cooked food is
highly relished potatoes or turnips,
boiled and mashed with Indian meal,
scalded and fed warm, especially on
frosty mornings. Fowls are very
fond of vegetables, eaten raw, and it
sugar-beets or mangles or turnips
are put within reach, they wilt help
themselves. For an appetizer, noth
ing is better than cabbage or the tops
of tnrnips. Hens never tire of cab
bage, and a good supply for winter
should always be laid in. Animal
food in some shape must be fur
nished, if you want plenty of ef gs.
Shore farmers can get fish offal from
the markets, claims from the banks,
or minnows from the ditches. Skim
med milk 's always in order, and
meat scraps from fat trying estab
lishments, sold in large cakes, and
placed where the hens have free ac
cess to them, are excellent food for
Plowing and Stirring the Soil.
Dr. A. Oemler, in his article on
Southern Truck Farming in the
December American Agriculturist,
treats tlie subject of soil as follows:
Owing to the absence of a cover
ing of snow and of successive freez
ings and thawings, fall plowing, so
useful at the North, is destructive of
fertility at the South and not advis
able. The land having undergone proper
preparation, having been sufficiently
manured, and the crop having been
planted with special regard to the
capacity of the soil, the most import
ant matter is, through culture or
keeping the earrh fine and mellow
among the plants. Stirring the soil
can scarcely be repeated too often
during the earlier periods of growth,
or until there is danger of injury to
the roots or to the tops Of growing
plants by the cultivator. The ground
may be too wet, but never too dry,
for stirring; because the more fre
quently it is broken up, fined, and
aerated, the more moisture will the
soil absorb from the atmosphere.
Stirring is an Operation- that she hi
be performed after every rain suffici
ent to cause incrusation or baking,
which would prevent a free admis
sion of air into the soil. The most
obvious benefit Of stiring the Soil is,
the destruction of weeds; tor no crop
can become remunerative, if crowded
b weeds which deprive it of air,
light moisture, and use up a part of
the fertility of the soil.
The plow, horse-hoe and cultiva
tor are to be used, whenever avail
able; but the hand-hoe must always
be relied on for the finer and more
careful work when, particularly in
the later stages of the crop, only su
perficial stirring is advisable. When
plants are grown in a crowded state,
dartness and .want of air elongate
the stems and leaves at the' expense
of the roots and of a general healthy
condition. The operations of thin
ning and hand-weeding are performed
in connection with hoeing to admit a
free circulation of air around the re
maining plants, and the sun is per
mitted to have art immediate influ
ence upon each, developing the de
sired form, bulk, and other qualities.
Farmers and Their Health.
An exchange gives the following
very appropriate advice:
On going to bed, change the
clothes, and If those taken off are to
be worn the next day, turn them
so that they may air and dry thor
oughly. In eating, especially in
warm weather, "go sidw;" Dd not
come in, hot from work, and at once
sit down to the table, but wait to
cool off, and at meals eat slowly.
Many look upon the time spent at
meals as wasted, while1 it is of great
importance. Eat slowly, and chew
well. It you an prolong the time at
meal by pleasant conversation, do
so. Do not be in a hurry to resume
work after meals in hot weather.
Take a long nooning. Better Spir
its, and increased vigor and strength
will far more than make dp the time
A general fault of our sleeping
rooms is lack bf ventilation. One
reason for this is the attempt to keep
out flies and mosquitoes' by closing
the rooms during the day. Frames
upon which wire-cloth, or the cheap
er mosquito netting Is stretched,
will keep out insects and allow of

Farmers who work all day, are
not often troubled with sleeplessness
insomnia as it is called; yet it is in
some cases a disease, and the more
fatigued one may be, the less he is
inclined to sleep. A brisk walk
before bedtime, and a sponging and
rubbing of the whole body, with a
wet towel around the bead, will
often break up the Very unpleasant
Farmers are very apt to neglect
their teeth. Every one should have
a tooth brush, not too hard, and
brush the teeth, using Water freely,

Ed. Gazette. I feel very grate
ful to all who contributed to us last
June when we had our house burned.
It was a hard blow Ori us it is true,
and we felt very destitute just at
that time, but the neighbors came in
the next morning after the fire, and
before the old house quit burning
they had the foundation for another
house laid for us, and in an incredi
ble short time they had a comfortable
house built for which our hearts are
full of gratitude; but our gratitude
does not stop there. Mr. C. 13. Wells
took the task upon himself to raise a
contribution for up, and our fellow
men and women contributed much
more than we could have asked even
if we had asked for anything. I have
had many ups and downs in life, and
that was the fourth time that I had
been visited by the fire fiend. But
the woret wound that I ever felt was
when Mr. Wells drove up to our
house with that load of presents, and
my wife felt very much as if we were
beggars not worthy to meet with re
spectable people. I suppose that
yon would not like to be troubled
witb every name; some of whom
who'contnbuted to us were entire
slraingers to me, yourself among
others, but we wish to thank all
through your columns who helped us
tu any way our most heartfelt thanks
and may you one and all never be
less able to help the needy.

A MINISTER'S ESCAPE.
From the Asylum to the Eosom of His Home
How it was Done.
A prominent minister residing at
the east has just made the following
statement; which is re-printed entire
for the benefit of those who may
have had a similar experience:
To the Editor of the Herald:
I have always shrunk from appear
ing prominently before the public,
but a sense of the duty I owe hu
manity and the world prompts me to
ask the opportunity for making a
brief statement in your paper.
Whether it be tru with others I
cannot say, but during my entire life
I have frequently been conscious
that something was slowly and silent
ly working to undermine my health
and life. What it was I could not
tell, but that some enemy of my be
ing was devouring me within I was
certain. At times I would seem
comparatively well and then I would
be attacked with the most distressing
-symptoms. I Would feel peculiar
pains in Various parts of my body,
my head would seem heavy; my res
piration labored; my appetite would
be ravenous one day and I would
loathe food the day following. Then
again I would lose all interest in life;
would feel weary withont exertion;
would become sleepy at mid-day
and restless at night. Occasionally
my breathing wonld be labored and
my heart almost motionless, while at
other times it wonld palpitate vio
lently, I thought these troubles
were the result of malaria, and I treat
ed them accordingly, but I got no
better. Shortly afterward my stom
ach became deranged, my food failed
to digest, and the fluids I passed were
of a peculiar odor and color. And
yet I did not realize that these things
meant anything serious. Finally I
consulted a number of eminent phy-

Pamphlets, circulars, and general job printing dona
ou short notice both neatly and cheaply,
sicians, each one of whom took a
different view as to the cause at my
troubles. One said I was suffering
from brain diseasej another spinal
difficulty; others heart affection,
kidney diseasej etc. My symptoms
were terrlblej Sfid in the hope of re
lief I was cauterized cupped, blister
ed and subjected to almost every
known form of treatment. During
one of these attacks, while at Red
Bank, N. J., a physician was called,
and left a prescription. After he had
gone, I requested a friend to go and
ask him what he thought of my
trouble. The reply Was: "Oh, he
will be all right in a few days it is
oniy an attack of delirium tremens.'
He was at once informed that this
was impossible, as i had never used
any kind of intoxicating drinks;
whereupon he returned, made inqttir?
ies, and Changed his prescription.
But all the care of my friends and
physicians availed nothing, t gtew
worse constantly, and What is most
terrible to think of, I did not know
what ailed me, nor could 1 find any
one who did.
During the summer and fait of last
year my pulse ranged from 120 to
130 per minute 1 had no relish for
food, and was indeed a most pitiable
object, t continued in this state
until last December, when I become
unconscious and lost my reason,
though I had two physicians in
whom myself and friends placed im
plicit confidence. In this condition I
was taken to Brattleboro, Vt., for
the purpose of being placed in the
insane asylum. I remained there un
til last March, being attended all the
while by ray faithful wife who never
left me and believed that some dis
ease and not insanity was the cause
of all my trouble. I regained con
sciousness in March last and insisted
upon being taken home. The phy
sicians advised that I remain, but I
insisted upon leaving, and we began
the journey, traveling slowly. I was
met at the dock by a friend whom I
recognized and then I became again
unconscious and remained so tor over
a week. When 1 once more reoog
nized my friend and knew my sur
roundings I determined to try, as a
last resort, a treatment of which I
had beard much but knew nothing.
Neither myself nor friends had much
faith that it or anything conld help
me, but we resolved to try. We ac
cordingly dismissed the physicians,
gave up all other remedies, and I re
joice to say that with the blessing of
Him, who guided us, I am to-day a
weU man; have not beep so vigorous
for many years, and I owe it to the
wonderful power of Warner's Safe
Kidney and Liver Cure, the remedy
which I used.
You can well imagine how grate'
ful I must feel under the circumstan
ces and, like a new convert, I ear
nestly desire that all who are suffer
ing should know and avail themselves
of this means of recovery. Had it
not been for the remedy above named
I should doubtless now be within the
walls of an asylum or in my grave.
The great trouble with my case was
that no one seemed to know what I
was afflicted with and I am positive
that thousandsof people in America
to-day are in the same or a similar
condition and do not know its cause.
Kidney troubles are the most decep
tive of all diseases. They have no
symptoms of their own, but often
show the symptoms of nearly every
known complaint I know that peo
ple are dying every day from sup
posed consumption, appoplexy, heart
disease, spinal complaint and many
other diseases, when could the real
cause be known, it would be found
to originate in the kidneys. In their
advanced stages they are the most
terrible of all known maladies, as my
own experience can folly verify.
That I had Brigbt's disease of the
kidneys there can be no doubt. That
the symptoms were those of many
other diseases is equally certain, and
that 1 was doomed to a terrible death
had I not been saved as I was, I am
positive. In view therefore of these
facts and with a hope that all who
read this may take timely warning,
I make this open statement freely
and for the good of my fellow
(Rev). E. D. Hopkins.
