AN English physician is writing a

serve their patrons in the kitchen as well as in

expresses the situation. People become sick
because they have violated some physicial law,
and nine times out of ten it will be found that
the malady began at the stomach.

It is easy to predict that no legislation of a

came out of it very cool.

ACCURATE statistical information
with regard to the agriculture of this country
is of prime importance not to our own farmers
and citizens alone, but to the world at iarsre.
Recognizing this fact, Congress by an Act,
approved March S, IS7O, provided that the next
census should be completed within the month
of June, 1880. By this provision it is expected
to avoid most of the errors in former agricul
tural reports, due to the fact that many of the
products returned embraced those of two dif
ferent crops. As the next enumeration will be
completed between June Ist and the 30th inclu
sive, nearly all of the crops harvested one year
can be pretty accurately ascertained. Those
for the calendar year 1579 will include the
cereals, peas, beans, rice, tobacco, cotton, pota
toes, fruits of all kinds, hay, clover, grass seed,
hemp, flax, honey, sugar caue, sorghurn, and, in
short, everything harvested this fall. The
cfops of the calendar year 1880 will be few,
embracing maple sugar and molasses, and wool
clipped chiefly in spring, except in Southern
California, Texas and some of the other South
ern States where two clippings a year are
obtained. For certain agricultural products
there is no regular harvest, for they are [fath
ered as they mature, week by week, and day by
day. These comprise butter, cheese, tnilk
sold, value of animals slaughtered, yield of
market gardens, timber of all kind?, and home
manufacture. It is extremely desirable that
the returns on all these topics should be full
and accurate, and this end can be best secured
by the hearty and intelligent co-operation of
our farmers. Accordingly Francis A. Walker,
Superintendent of the Census, strongly recom
mends them to make notes, from time to time,
of the quantities and values of the several
crops gathered ; of the number of acres planted
to each, and of all other particulars that will
enable them to make prompt, full and accurate
returns when the census canvassers call upon
them next June.
D. Lothrop & Oo.'s Fall Books.
No publishing house in the country is mak
ing more active preparations for the holiday
trade than D. Lothrop & Co., and their list of
announcements exceeds in extent and attractive
ness that of any past year. As usual, the
strongest effort has been made in behalf of
young readers, and the books offered for their
delectation are as beautiful in their outside ap
pearance as they are fascinating inside. Sto
ries in prose and stories in poetry, funny sto
ries, pathetic stories, stories in natural historv
and stories about people and places, delight
fully written and charmingly illustrated, form
a large proportion of the catalogue, while
hooks adapted to the needs and capacities of
older readers are not wanting.
Among the larger and more important books
are Mr. Benjamin's American Artist*, an ele
gant quarto volume, filled with portraits of
•onie of oar most famous painters, with illtis-
tratinns from their own liands. drawn expressly
for the work ; a second volume of /'or/*' Homes,
brought out in the same manner, containing
portraits and biographies of Holmes, Bryant,
Emerson, Paul 11. llayne, John Boyle O'Reil
ly, ami other prominent authors : a new edi
tion of Out of Darkness into I.iyht, a volume
which a New York critic calls "a rich work of
art;" a red-line, quarto edition of Pilgrims'
Progress, on plate paper, with 17 full-page
illustrations, splendidly bonnd ; Story oj tie
Prayers of Christian Histories, by the author
of Story of the Hymns ; Thoughts that Breathe,
consisting of choice extracts from the works of
Dean Stanley, with an introduction by Phil
lips Brooks; anew edition of Jesus. Lover of
Mg Soul; a gift Imok for yoiinc ladies called
( hristnws Pie , illustrated by Miss Lathbnry ;
Chri tun's Snow Flakes, a large and elegant
quarto volume of original poems by American
authors, with choice illustrations, r:ch!y and
uniquely bound, and Or. Smith's America, our
National Hvnin, with several exquisite en
gravings and a sketch of the author.
Of the books for young people, prominent is
Wide Awake Pleasure Boohs ' F," uniform
with the five volumes which have preceded it,
yet with a rich and more attractive table of
contents than either of them; Don Quixote,
Fr., being a history of the further adventures
of Miltiades Peterkin Paul; Miss Yonge's
Young Folks' His'ory of France, and Rome ;
The Dogberry Bunch; Royal I.oirrie's Last
Year ai St. Olare's; and Breakfast for Tiro,
by Joanna Mathews. Others are in prepara
tion and will be early announced.
But it is the children who have particular
reason to fee 1 grateful to the Messrs. Lothrop,
who have provided for them a list perfectly
bewildering in its variety and attractiveness.
One of the first books to tempt the eye of little
patrons is Child L.ore, a beautifully bound
quarto volume with engravings and colored
illustrations. It contains the "Babvland Clas
sics," old ami new, with short rhymes and
jingles, complied and edited by Clara Doty
Bates, and is good for all times and seasons of
the year. Once upon a Time , by Miss E. E.
Brown, is a charming book of story plays,
illustrated of course, and bound in taking
style. Then there are Stories and Pictures of
Domestic Animals, and Stories and Pictures
of Wild Animals, companion books, in large
tvpe, in chromo board covers; a new edition of
Little Lucy's WonJerjul Globe; Children's
Funni/ Book, a big quarto, full of pictures ; the
Birthday Picture Book, with thirty full-page
engravings and mottoe3 for each day in the
month; and several "baby books," chief
among them Bj by land for 1879. Baby's Ob
ject-Lesson Book, and B iby's Portfolio.
Unusual attractions arc also offered in the
little "Libraries" and . "Series." The Wide
Awake Library, containing the eight volumes ot
the magazine, ought to be in possession of
every family where there are children, and no
cheaper or more fitting present could be made
by parents than this. The Out of School Series,
consisting of four volumes JL>y popular writers,
is a special attraction. Then there are the
Merry and True series of 10 volumes; Little
Chats with Little Folks, 6 books in a box; Baby
Classic Toy Books; Favorite Q larto Toy Books;
the National History Series and Storivs, and
Johnny's Discoveries, in three volumes.
The presentation book upon which the Messrs.
Lothrop are In-stowing particular attention, and
which, from its peculiar character, ought to
have special attraction for every patriotic
American, is Dr. S. F. SiJith's America, which
for nearly half a century has served as our
national liymn. It is to be brought out in large
quarto form, magnificently illustrated aud
bound, and containing, beside the hymn, an
illustrated sketch of the venerable author, who
is still living. It would be interesting if we
could know the various important occasions
upon which this hymn has been sung since it
was written. During the war it exerted a won
derful influence at home and in the field in the
way of strengthiug patriotic feeling, aud it has
lost none of its popularity or power sinjs. The
volume which presents it is artistic and beauti
ful, and it should be found in the household of
every true American.
The five handsomely printed volumes which
constitute the Idle Hour Series, and which have
put off their light summer clothing for tasteful
cloth covers, claim the attention of all lovers
of choice literature. They have ail been
warmly praised by the press, and in their
cheaper form have had a large and steady sale.
Their character is not ephemeral, nor are they
simply intended as "summer books." One can
enjoy the experiences of the Two Girls who
Tried Farming by a coal fire as well as in a
hammock, or the narrative of the trio who
sailed Up and Down, the Merrirrvxc when that
famous river is frozen as well us now. My
Daughter Siuan and Priscilla ILunter are ac
ceptable acquaintances at any time of year, and
there is no particular season to be set apart for
There are two other series which seem to
require special mention. The first, History and
Biography, containing five volumes, and Fa
mous Americans, containing the lives of Frank
lin, Sumner, Webster aud Amos Lawrence.
They are books which every boy should read,
and will be the better for reading.
Another new book, Waifs and their Authors.
is now in press, and nearly ready for issue. It
will be in the popular quarto form, illustrated.
Of new editions, prominent are Tarbox's Life
of Israel Putnam, which has been m:\terially
reduced in price; Sunshine for Babylana;
Pansy's three ever popular books, Mother's
Boys and Girls, Picture Book, and Our Dar
lings, all of them enlarged, and in choice
bindings. The Children's Almanac, which
created such a sensation last season, should not
be forgotten. It is one of the most useful and
beautiful little volumes ever brought out by
the publishers, and is sold for hardly more than
a nominal price. It will be remembered the
calendar reaches over five years, and is as good
to-day as it was last year.
The "World's Child-Magazine.
John Greenleaf Whittier, the most
ehild-heartcd as be is among the fore
most of American Authors, writes of
ST. NICHOLAS: "It is little to say of
this magazine that it is the best child's
periodical in the world." Prof. Proc
tor, the astronomer, wrote from Lon
don : "What a wonderful magazine it
is for young folks, and ours are quite
as much delighted with it as Ameri
can children can be !" That it is cal
culated to delight the little folk every
where is indicated by the fact that it
is to be issued in French by Delagrave
of Paris and that even the far-away
little Moslems are now to have a vol
ume made up of translations from ST.
XICIIOLAS into Arabic by the Rev. 11.
Beginning with the November num
ber (ready Oct. 25th,) the magazines
is to be printed on heavier paper with
wider margins, and is to be so much
enlarged that the new volume will
contain nearly two hundred more
pages than any former volume, while
the price will remain the same. The
publishers announce many brilliant
novelties, including a new serial by
Miss Louisa M. Alcott, entitled "Jack
a:id Jill;" "The Treasurer-Box of
English Literature," in which will be
given gems from standard English and
American authors; an Acting-Play
for Sunday Schools, by Rev. Edward
Eggleston, which will be printed iu
time for the holidays, with full direc
tions for its representation in school
exhibitions; and a beautiful Fairy
Operetta for children entitled "The
Sleeping Beauty in the Wood."
The November number has two
beautiful frontispieces and a red-line
title-page, and contains over sixty
illustrations. In it, begins a new
serial story for boys, "AMONG TIIE
LAKES," by the author of "Dab Kin
Another splendid serial for boys has
been secured for this volume,—"The
Fairport Nine," a story of a base-ball
club, by NOAH B BOOKS. In short, ST.
NICHOLAS, which has no rival on
either continent, is to be better than
A superb Christmas number is in
preparation, to appear early in Decem
ber. Subscriptions should begin with
November. Buy it of your book
seller, or send the subscription price to
the publishers. Price, $3 a year ; 25
cents a number.

Not a Beverage.
"They are not a beverage, but a medicine,
with curative properties of the highest degree,
containing no poisonous drugs. They do not
tear down an already debilitated system, but
build it up. One bottle contains more hops,
that is, more real hop strength, than a barrel
of ordinary beer. Every druggist in Rochester
