The seed is of great value also ; and just before the war broke out Hyderabad alone was exporting over 50,000 maunds annually the value being calculated at a lac of rupees. During Mr. Wakefield's investigation in England he found that a great demand existed for the oil extracted from the seed, because it has a higher melting point than most of the vegetable oils, and is, in consequence, used to give various preparations of oil a thicker consistency. He found it being used in conjunction with cotton-seed oil for the manufacture of margarine which is a cheap and wholesome substitute for butter in universal use in European countries. He purchased some real butter in London and made thee out of it and took it to a margarine factory, where they at once made him a mixture out of cottonseed and Mohua seed oils which exactly resembled ghee and cost about half as much. Mohua oil is not only edible if properly prepared, but soap, candles, glycerine and many other valuable products are made from it. This point should be clearly understood by all Nuelta N9-u1 ANATH BANDHU. . (Volume I. se s nguMINNANNyaMbpsudra tra r ܚܣܡܚܒܝܫܫܚܩܝܦܧ ܫܒܣ ܦܩܚ interested in the industrial welfare of India. For, by exporting seed instead of oil we lose firstly in money value, because we are paid less on account of the freight charges of the refuse which must be carried away and which it would not be necessary to carry if we extracted the oil ourselves for export ; secondly, we lose the benefits of labour which would accure to our people if we did our own extraction; thirdly, we lose the oils themselves of which, although they are of the greatest value to us, we have so far, through ignorance, made no use; fourthly, we lose the cake which is a most valuable cattle food. Thus in the Mohua which grows wild in the forests and fields we have a source of income which we have only to utilize. We have already shown that the Molhua tree is to be found not only in Hyderabad but also in various other parts of India. India cries aloud for industries other than the universal but insecure industry of agriculture. Will her sons turn a deaf ear to her cries-behaving like the deaf adder that stuppeth her ear? Hemendra Prasad Ghose. Eugenics or Race-Culture. UGENICS is the name of a new science which has come into being only since the beginning of the present century. Its aim is to study “the agencies under social control that may improve or impair the racial qualities of future generations, either physically or mentally.' The science though still in its embryonic stage has opened up a new vista of vision undreamt of by our past generations. It has thrown a flood of new light on the much derided caste system of the Hindus and has proved that the science though new to Westerners was not unknown to the ancient Easterners. The science was first formally expounded in May 16th 1901 by Dr. Galton at the first meeting of the Sociological Institute, London, and has since grown up rather unexpectedly. Men of the highest intellectual eminence, including leaders of science, of biological, medical and social reform-have stood up for and against this novel science, and much learned dust has been kicked up by them to obscure the vision of the ordinary intellect. But still the science has a wonderful
