AGRICULTURE IN GREECE.
Agriculture is depressed in Greece. , A French
traveler says.:. "The Greeks asserts that they
,were not born for agriculture, and lam afraiu
they are right: The Greek finds himself in the
right place at the' door of a shop, or on the
deck of a vessel. Greeks who cultivate the
gr9und feel themselves humiliated." Despite
the efforts of the Government the people will
.not tiln to their rich soil. The farming classes
live plb orl y . They have good ,nules, small,
sikift, and hardy _horses ; small and thin, but
well-shaped cattle, and quantities of sheep . and
goats, whose milk they drink. It costs $2OO to
eStablish't flock of 100 sheep which then yields
about $lOO a year. 6abln4es and onions are
the staple green vegetables. Apples, pears,and
cherries are bad ; lemons, oranges, and olives
good. The soil is for the most part very-fertile.
One of the chief evils is the minute division of
land. Although not a tenth of 'the country is
under cultivation, very few farmers have More
than a couple of acres, and three or four. per
sons often have claims upon different crops on
the' Same farm, the olives belonging to one; the
beaus anottier,and so on. The farmers have
no ambition, and only care just to live. - One
fourth of the year is devoted-to holidays.
Paradise is not so lok. as is sometimes
thought. The garden of Eden . is now spread
out into the width of the world. Our homes
are bowers in it ; our roads are, walks in ;
and always within reach, hang, forbidden fruits
though now they are such as Often bring their
punishment in the ' eating 7 apples of Sodom,
golden on the rind and dust inside. There is
in the garden still the tree of knowledge of
good andievil, and of this we may eat,.and by
the eating of it we have our eyes opened and
are liAble to recogn4e the very tree of, life.
Avoid disputation for the mere sake of argu
ment. The man wiio disputes obstinately,- - and
in a bigoted.spirit, is like the man who would
stop the fountain \ frtym which he should, drink.
Earnest discussion is commendable ; but • fac

badly afflicted with Salt Rheum, and the whqle surface
of my skin being covered with pimples and eruptions,
many of -which caused me great pain and annoyance,
andk-nowing It to be a blood disease, I, took many of
the advertised brood prepamions, among which was
any quantity of Sarsaparilla. without: obtaining any
benefit until I commenced taking the Vegetine, and be
fore. I had completed the first bottle I saw that I had
got the right, medicine.. Consequently. I followed on
with it nail I had taken. seven bottles, when I was
pronounced a well man. and.my skin is smooth and'en
nrely free from pimples and eruptions. I have never
enjoyed so good health before, and 'I attribute it all to
the use of Vegetine. To benefit those afflicted with
'Rheumatism, I will make , mention also of the' Vege
