Sacramento, Cal., January 12. A 12

How Men Die.
If we know all the methods of approach
adopted by an enemy we are the better
enabled to ward off the danger and post
pone the moment when surrender beconus
inevitable. In many instances the inher
ent strength of the body suffices to enable
it to oppose the tendency toward death.
Many however have lost these lorces su
such an extent that there is little or no
help. In other cases a little aid to the
weakened lungs will make all the differ
ence between sudden death and many
years of useful life. Upon the tir.-t sj nip
toms of a cough, coltl or any trouuie oi
the throat or lungs, give that old and
well known remedy Boschee's German
Syrup, a careful trial. It will prove
what thousands say ot u to lie, uie ncne-
factor of any home.

SOME THINGS IN WHICH THE

There improbably no country r peop'e
about whom so lnany iiojuil.-ir iiiiicine
Eeutations exist a: the Chinese. This
lingular .ttate f thingn is lue to two
chief causes. In the first place, nio-t
newspaper writers on the subject, write
lir.-st ihiinesviuiis from very siierli( ial
data, and wil limit understaudiii I he .-nb-jeets
iijKin wliieii they write. Then :e;.i in,
the Chinese t liVinscl ve-5 in this country
are not tiisposid to lose sleej), whether
they are uiidcr.-dood r not. Then many
books have Ikoii written by people with
political or other kind- of axes to triiid,
and have ;.;iven only such facts and inter
pretaiioii of tacts e.y tended to .eompli: h
llieir iurMses. There are many inci
dents and couloir?:; in the ltowery 1: ini
uom which have been ivinored in both
books and new: ; -
PTTir.i.r lk-.mnc; I'uoui.km.
T am i!- I;ed hovr the Chinese keep their
cities clean. It may be that aldermen
r:;::ht et a hint as to the be.-.t solution of
the street eh a'liiiil prcbiem from the prac
tices of the hnthei!." The conditions are
ho diiTerent t!;ere and here as to render
comparison misleading. In tiie first place,
the principal source of dirt in American
citi-s is absent from Chinese cities. I
refer to horses, here so numerous ami
such prolific sources of "dirt." Then? ;;re
no horses seen on Chinese streets drawing
carts or other vehicles. What few lio;-- cs
nxe seen are riddc :i by officials or soldier.;.
'The government owns all horses. Frci ihi
is transported by men, either upon their
shoulders or on wheelbarrow.". The streets
tire not over six to ten feet wide, and the
sidewalk is iu the middle of these narrow
lanes. The stores and shops ;:ie o;eu lo
tho street line on either side, and each
shopkeeper cleans the street to the center
in front of his shop. This is all the pro
vision for .'tivct swecpin No yarbaye is
thrown into the streets, and "ash barrel-'
are unknown: hence i he chief sources of
dirt in our cities are unknown. There are
no underground sewers, and no need for
them. Residences are provided with other
means of disposing of liiih than cither
dumping or draining into rivers.
livery residence, however humble, is
provided with earthen jars, or 1, truce stone
ware vaults, into which all otherwise un
usable refuse is cast, cud the contents r if
these "family jars," unlike our ''family
jars," is convertible into cash. No peo
ple fertilize in agriculture to Mich an ex
tent as the Chinese. This creates a ready
market for what we cast in sewers and
pollute our waterways. A common street
sign posted over large cart lien vessels
sunk iu the streets do not warn tho "Pub
lic" to commit "No nuisance,'" but re
spectfully invite the public to 'l'a;:se
here." These "peculiar" and odoriferous
institutions are owned by men who make
it, their life business to deed in the com
modity which the aforesaid "public" de
posits in the receptacles. This is sold at
so much a "measure" to farmers, who
carry it to their homes, often many miles
away, where ?t is put into earthen tanks
or vats to ferment (reader, hold yor.r
nose.) until it is required to fertilize (crow
ing cabbages and other "truck." TiuS is
one of the characteristic iiistitutk,.::. of
China, and the good results from i: are
apparent in the yields of food plants.
Every cow herder carries a basket i;;!i
which he or she gatlars up the "tn g
monts" which are ued ns the city sew er
age for fertilizing purposes.
A I'-Viol'i: mXTACLK.
As one saunters through a Chinese city,
his eyes are creeled wKh what at lirvt
form s to say the least, a unione spectacle.
It is the public- patronage of tir. ler.h r :;i
rewerage. Is t-I;e air pure? Well, hardly.
Have you ever ob-.eyve-.t the uniformly
small no'!o the Orientals in this coun
try? It' you haw, and wilt accept my so
lution of that feature, it is that the smell
ing organ has been exhausted by inh-din f
the street odors of China. One thing can
be said in favor of thus disposing of the
sewerage of cities, viz.: It does not noll.::e
the water, which is more vital to, heaka
than the air. then the. air has greater
self leui.siu g powers than water, v.:at
laken on the whole, it is the better plv.n
to protect the water th;fii the. p.ir from im
purities. It is also tvuo that no poison is
so malignant aa sewer poison, anil that is
unknown in China.
Have you ever figured the commerci;
value of the contents of our icW-ers,
which is daily and hourly, like Tennyson's
brook, flowing oa rurever to pollute our
5wii Niagara river-' If so you have been
surprised that tome method of utilizing
this source of wealth lias not been devised.
It is not my purpose liuie to dish up tig,
wrcs PV statistics oil the value of an ri'
tide, daily going to waste, and for which
the soil of the surioioebng cotiutrv4- t,,r.
hfcrhc.T: Under the cxi&'iliK regulations
I ho Chinese furrier is able to harvest
th?Co crops from every foot of ground
every year. In no other way could such
a population ic fed. Winicr wheat ro
tates with either rice or cotton. During
winter, when the wheat is getting its
fetart, radishes or turnips are grown on the
same soil. Then around the margin of the
ground seeded to wheat, beans or peas are
grown. As soon as the wheat is harvested, if
rice is to succeed it, the ground is irri
gated and planted with rice. If cotton is
to rotate with the wheat, the seeds are
planted lK-fore the wheat matures, by
digging between the drills of wheat, and
when the latter is harvested, the cotton
plants are well under growth. Then the
cpace between the cotton plants is dug
up, and the succeeding crop is sole tenant.
When these summer crops are gathered,
wheat is again sown. Not a foot of coil
is left non-productive. This state cJ
affairs could not hist, but for the rich
feytilichig methods, and sewerage is tho
principal and almost exclusive source of
fertilizers. Tho "Benighted (sit) heathen"
has learned lessons in economy and cleanli
ness frum which the American people
might learn a thing or two. Pen Ilwa
