LETTER OK rKOFESSOU WATEKHOVSE.
Dear Sin: My interest in the indus
trial welfare of the country induces me
to address you upon a subject of great
Personal investigation in India have
fully convinced me that jute can be nat
uralized in the United States. The con
ditions of soil and climate in Southern
States and in California are suited to the j
growth of this plant. The commercial
importance of jute is now immense. The
culture of this staple now adds scores of
millions annually to the productive wealth
of India. Amid all the vast and diver
sified productions of that fruitful land,
only cotton, opium and rice exceed jute
in mercantile value. In 1872, besides all
the domestic consumption of jute, 700,
000,000 pounds were exported to foreign
countries. The United Kingdom now
annually manufactures more than 800,
000,000 pounds of the fiber.
The range of its uses is broad. It now
enters into the manufacture of almost
every kind of fabric, from the coarsest
gunny-cloth to tho finest satin. It is
claimed that the culture of jute is less
exhaustive to the land and more profit
able to the cultivator than that of sugar
cane or cotton. Tho plaut grows with
rank luxuriance. Sometimes the vield
per acre is 3,500 pounds.
The cheapnoss of native jute for bags
and baling would fae.ilitar th mnv.
ment of our crops and the revival of our
domestic commerce. The fertility of our
soil, the economy of our agricultural
machinery, our skilled labor and scien-!
tific supervision, and our superior chemi
cal and mechanical processes of treat
ment, will assuredly enable Americans
successfully to compete with the rude
manual industry of India in the cultiva
tion and manufacture of this important

Perhaps the Middle States, also, are
adapted to the growth of jute. Even iu
the case of failure, the experiments
would involve no serious loss; while, in
the event of success, the new industry
would enrich the nation. But in order
to avoid possible loss, the tests in the
Central States should be made on a small
scale. The experience of the nreseut

COURTESY OF BMiCROFT LIBRARY,
The Mo3t Precious of Gifts.
Health is undeniably a more precious gift
than riches, honor or power. Who would
exchange it for these, the chief objects of
human ambition? It is obviously the part
of wisdom to employ means for tho preser
vation of health aud tho prolongation f
life which time and experience have proved
to be reliable. Many of the dangers by
which health is threatened may be nullified
by the use of that most irresistible of cor
rectives and tonics, Hostetter's Stomach Bit
ters, which, by increasing vital power and
rendering tho physical functions regular and
active, keeps the system in good working
order and protects it against disease. For
constipation, dyspepsia, liver complaint, ner
vousness, kidney aud rheumatic ailments, it
is invaluable, and it affords a sure defence
against malarial fevers, besides removing ev
ery trace of such disease from the system.
