SriCIDK IIY AMMONIA.
The Terrible Agonv Does Not Pre
vent Its Use.
No poison brings death with more
madeniug agony than ammonia, but
that fuct does not teem to discourage
the suicide. The man Hanowitz, who
deliberately swallowed a fatal dose of
the drug in New York recently, is
only one of tho many who have gone
the ammonia route to death in suite of
tho cxcrutiating pain. Dr Blyih has
recorded thirly caaesol ammonia pots
oning iu tiie small London district of
which he is heullh officer; Professor
Mitchell mentions twenty-two cases,
and four have occurred during the
short time Dr. Jenkins has been con
nected with tho coroner's oflice in
Cases of slow poisoning from am
monia are of constant, occurence
among men who work in its manu
fact uro, or eveu in decomposing sub
stances which give it off in considera
ble quantities. Ammonia, slowly and
from day to day taken into the system,
causes the complexion to lose its
freshness, and the skin of men who
get heavily impregnated with it has a
disagreeable blotched and discolored
Taken into the stomach from day
to day iu even the amall quantities
used to adulterate lood, such us bak
ing powder, it not only injures the
complexion but at luck a the lining of
the stomach, and is the source of much
genera", ill heitlth.
The recent rapid increase in I he use
of ammonia for various purposes, and
the consequent increase in its manu
facture, have made it one of the most
easily obtained poisons and, although
everybody is familiar wild it in some
form, there is a surprising amount of
ignorance of its dangerous qualities.
Its use us an adulterant in any food
preparation is simply a crime, and as
a crime should be punished.
