THE QUESTION OF AMERICAN FLOOR
Ill the issue of the 9th of April of
Pappenheini's Mueller Zcitung of Vi
enna, the following paragraph ap
pears under the heading of "Flour
Adulteration in England." This re
port sa s: "An examination of im
ported American flours made a short
time ago, gave the striking result
that nearly the half of them were
found to be adulterated with Plaster
of Paris, baryta (sulphate of barium)
or ivitii potato or maize flower. As
much American flour is also imported
Into Germany, this exerience de
serves the more attention, because
sulphate of barium possesses poison
ous properties. (Among others it is
one of the effective poisons for rats
and mice.) Plaster of Paris is "like
wise possessed of properties injurious
to health, while maize and potato
flour are at least of less value than
wheaten flour. Potato flour, when
bad or diseased potatoes are used,
acts injuriously. The English re
ports complain that the flour adulter
ated in America is frequently adul
terated a second time by the Eng'ish
dealers." This communication ot
our Vienna contemporary would lead
its readers to believe that the English
people have stomachs and digestions
of extraordinary power. Plaster of
Paris is not usually considered a very
nu'ritious article of diet, and even
the Bread Reform League would hes
itate to recommend it for forming
bone; but we fancy it would be safer
than the sulphate of barium, which
our contemporary states is so effect
ive for the destruction of rats and
mice. We should be glad to learn
where the ' English reports" referred
to appeared, for no report ot such
adulterations has ever come to our
THE FRUIT CROP OF THE BAST.
It is of considerable interest to our
fruit packers as well as growers to be
able to gauge the condition of the
crop throughout the Union. Re
ports have been for some time con
flicting and contradictory; but the
latest report air iramenss crop every
where. Particularly is this the case
in peaches, which in good years flood
The markets of the East, and rot on
the ground, vainly seeking a pur
chaser. The New York Commerciul
Bulletin of a recent date says: "An
immense fruit crop is promised in
the Delaware and Maryland Peninsu
la, which will compensate in part for
the partial shortage, consequent upon
cold weather in the early part of the
season at the West. A Wi'mington
dispatch says the peach yield this sea-
ton, from present appearances, will
be "phenomenal." I. N. Mills, Su
perintendent of the Delaware Divis
ion of the Philadelphia, Wilmington
& Baltimore Railroad, who is said to
know more about the outlook than
auyohe else, because he has to trans
port the fruit to market, says that
from the way tilings look now the
crop may exceed the superabundant
one of 1875, when in the height of
the season there was a constant glut
and thousands of baskets of peaches
rotted under the trees. In that year
the railroad and steamboat lines were
unable to carry the peaches to mar
ket, and the growers were almost as
badly off as when there is only a
very slight crop. This year, how
ever, not so much trouble ot this kind
will be experienced, as there are nu
merous canning factories now in
operation, which will probably be
able to use up all the peaches that
cannot be taken to market in their
fresh state." Reports from the West
also show great crops, so that it is
not very reasonable to look, lor high
prices in fruit this year, except in de
scriptions special to California.
LONDON FISH EXHIBITION.
Chairman Williams, of the House
Committee of Foreign Affairs, has
submitted to the House a report on
the joint resolution recently agreed
upon by the committee proposing an
appropriation of $50,000 to furnish
an 'American exhibit at the London
Fish Exhibition, to be held in May,
1883. The report In urging the ad
vantages to be derived from a partic
ipation in the exhibition, says: "One
of the immediate results of the partic
ipation by this Government in the
exhibition a Berlin, in 1880, was the'
establishment of agencies for tha sale
of American fish products in nearly
every country in Europe. As another
result American boneless codfish has
been adopted as a standard article ot
food by seventeen or more of the reg
iments of the Germany army, and its
introduction into tht commissary de
partment of the navies of Germany
and Russsia is seriously contempla
ted. The consumption of pickled fish
in Europe is known to be immense,
and yet American pickled fish, the
finest in the world is scarcely known
there. The export of these goods
from the United States to Europe in
1869 amounted in value to $134,783,
and in 1881 to $1,902,100. This can
and should be increased a hundred

THE IMPENDING FATE.
An Interesting Chapter from the Life of a
The readers of this paper were
more or less amazed at a most re
markable statement from one ot our
leading citizens which appeared in
yesterday'b issue. So unusual were
the circumstances connected with it.
and so much comment did it occas
ion on the streets and in the social
circled, that a representative of this
paper was commissioned to investi
gate its details and varify its facts.
The article referred to was a state
ment made by Mr. B. F. Larabee, of
the New York and Boston Dispatch
Express company, whose office is on
Arch street. Mr. Larabee was found
by the newspaper man in his private
office, and on being questioned said :
"Well, sir, logically I have been
dead, but really I am as you can see
me. A little over a year ago I was
taken sick. My trouble was not se
vere at first and I thought it was the
result of a slight cold. Somehow I
fell uncomfortably tired at times
although I took an abundance of
sleep. Then, again, I had dull and
strange pains in various parts of my
body. My appetite was good one
day and I had none whatever the
next and my head pained me more
or less much of tho time. A while
afterward I noticed much that was
peculiar about the fluids I was pass
ing and that a sediment, scum and a
strange accumulation appeared in it.
Still I did not realize that these
things meant anything serious and I
allowed the illness to run along until
on the 28th day of October I fell
prostrate while walking along Tre
mont street. I was carried home
and did not go out of the house until
the middle of December. I then
went down town and attempted to.
attend to my business until the 13th
of last January, when I was taken
with a very severe relapse. My symp
toms were terrible. I was fearfully
bloated; I suffered severe pains in all
parts of my body and it was almost
impossible to get my breath. For
six days I never laid down and never
slept. I was constantly attended by
my regular physician, Doctor John
son, and Doctor Bowditch also came
to see me nearly every day. There
was no doubt that I was suffering
from Bright's disease of the kidney's
in its worst form and last stages, ac
companied by other troubles in my
liver and heart. In spite, however,
of all the skill of the physicians, I
kept growing worse and finally they
tapped my side in the vicinity of the
heart, taking away forty-six ounces
of water. This relieved me for the
time, but I soon became as bad as
ever. Then the doctor gave me up
entirely, declared I could not live
more than twenty-four hours, and my
daughter, who was residing ;n Paris,
was telegraphed for. Still I lingered
along for several weeks, far more
dead than alive, but never giving up
hope. Ono night it was on the
20th of Apnl, I very well remember
my attendant, who was reading
the paper to me, began an article
which described my disease and suf
fering exactly. It told how some
severe cases of Bright's disease had
been cured, and so elearly and sensi
bly did it stale the case that I de
termined to try the means ot cure
which it described. So I sent my
man to the drug store, procured a
bottle of the medicine, unknown to
my physicians and friends, and took
the first dose a! 10 o'clock. At that
time I was suffering intensely. I
could not sleep: I had the short
breaths and coufd scarcely get any
air into my lungs. I was terribly
bloated from head to foot, and the
motion of my heart was irregular and
painful. The next morning I was
able to breathe freely; the pain began
to leave me and the bloating de
creased. I continued to lake the
medicine, and to-day; sir, I am as
well as I ever was in my life, and
wholly owing to the wonderful, al
most miraculous power of Wirner's
Safe, Kidney and Liver Cure. I do
not know what this medicine is made
of, or anything else about it, but I
know it saved my life when I was
given up by the doctors and had re
ally been dead for weeks; that it has
kept me in perfect health ever since
and has cured many ot my friends
to whom I have recommended it.
There are a number of very remark
able cases in Linn and Salem, as well
as in this city, that it has cured. My
recovery is so remarkable that it has
excited much attention, and physic
ians as well as others have investi
gated it thoroughly. I am glad they
have, for I feel thai the resnlts of such
a wonderful cure should be known to
the thousands in all parts of the land
who are suffering from troubles of the
kidneys, liver or heart, in some of
their many dangerous forms."
The representative of the press
thanked Mr. Larabee for his very
frank and clear statement, and was
about to have the office when a gen
tleman stepped up to him and en
quired if he were seeking informa
tion about Mr. Larabee's sickness and
recovery. The scribe replied that he
was, whereupon the gentleman said :
"And so am I, and I have come all
the A'ay from Chicago for that very
purpose. Kidney troubles seem to
be alarmingly increasing all over the
country, and I have a very near rela
tive who is afflicted much as Mr.
Larabee was. I have been to see
the phy siciaus of whom Mr. Larabee
speaks and I tell you, sir, it is simply
"What did tbey say?" asked the
man of news.
"Say! why, sir, they fully confirm
ed everything Mr. Larabee has stat
ed. I went to see Dr. D. A. John
son, at 20 Worcester street. He
was absent when I called, and so I
stepped into the Commonwealth ho
tel, where Mr. Larabee was living at
the timo ot his sickness. Messrs.
Brugh & Carter are the proprietors,
and I asked them about Mr. Lara
bee's case. Mr. Brugh pointed to
the electrio annunciator and 6aid,
'whr for weeks and weeks every
time that bell rang 1 said: That
means the death of Mr. Larabee, No
one around the hotel ever dreamed
that he would recover and when the
doctors would come down from hi
room they ivonld shake their head
and say there was no hope. The ar
rangements for the funeral were
made and his recovery was simply
I then called on Dr. Johnson who
said that Mr. Larabee's case was it
very remarkable one. He was his
family physician and expected his
death every hour tor a namber of
weeks and never called to see bin
during that time, but he was prepar
ed for it. The doctewr said the recov
ery was due to Warner's Safe Kidney
and Liver Cure, and if he had friends
male or female, troubled with Albu
men or any kidney troubles he should
eestainly advise them to use thin
remedy. Dr. Johnson said kidney"
difficulties are more common thau
most people think and that many
symptoms which are supposed to be
other diseases arise from the kid
neys. He sdid tnat ladies after ges
tation arc specially subject to aibu'
ruinous troubles which require prompt
Well, I then came down and call
ed on Dr. II. Imrersoll Bowditch on
boylston street: The old doctor was '
inclined to be reticent but fully con
firmed all I had previously learned.
He had attended Mr. Larabee, and
supposed hirn beyond all hope, and?
he was afterwards restored, as he
said, by Warner's 'Safe Kidney antf
I next went to see Dr. Melville E.
Webb, at the Hotel Cluney, for yoir
see I was determined to be thorough
iu the maltur. I found Df: Webb a
most clear-headed and well informed
gentleman, and he said:
"I know of Mr. Larabee's case
from having thoroughly investigated?
it as a mediqal director of a Life In
surance company, and it,, is one of the
most remarkable cases 1 have ever
met. Mr. Larabee had all the mani
festations ot a complication of dis--eases,
and in their worst forms. He
had albumen and casts in the urine,,
and a terrible diseased liver and
spleen. Indeed, he was so bad that
he threw himself upon tr e floor, and
with his head upon a hassock, slrug--gled
for breath. It was on the night
when he was fo bad and when all his-'
medical advisers had long given him
up that he began using Warner's
Safe Kidney and Liver Cure. The?
next morning at 10 o'clock he w as
able to breathe freely, and has beeir
ever since. I subjected him to thee
most thorough examination possible,
after his recovery, and 'I can't finer
out about him.' His kidneys, livep'
lungs and heart are perfectly well)
and sound. I can only add that'
from what I have seen, I would un
hesitatingly recommend this remedy.
The conclusions from the state- -ments
above made which come to
fthe newspaper man as well as the
general public, must be two-fo'd.
First that a modern miracle of heal--ing
has been performed in our midst,
and that, too; by the simplest means
arid one which is in the reach of every
one. It should be remembered that
Bright's disease is not usually a sud -den
complaint. Its beginnings are?
slight and its growth slow. The
symptoms by which it niay be de-
tecled are different with diffeientt
persons, no two 'persons usually hav
ing the same. This fact was mani
fest eVl in the case of Mr. Larabee,
and he had no idea of the terrible
complaint which attacked him untif
it became fixed upon him. Secondly,
testimonial of 6ueb high character
and so out-spoken in tone, couclus--ively
prove the value of the remedy
and its superior nature to the propri
etary articles with which the publie
have been flooded.
"The greater includes the less,"
and the remedy which has been
proven so valuable aHfe has saved a
lite after it was brought down to
death's door, must unquestionably be
certain in all minor troubles which)
arc so disastrous unless taken in lime.
The leaf fibre called pita or bio
mella, which grows wild in large
quantities in Honduras, is said to be
the strongest fibre known, and yet is
capable of such finish that it is used
half and half with silk, and also with
wool and silk, making a very durable
fabric. Although the value of thin
fibre has-been known, for not less than
twenty years, it is only recently that
suitable machinery for preparing it
for manufacturing purposes has been
devised. When finished and ready
for sale, the fibre is worth $1000 per
