A nuisance that troubled England fifty
years ago it now rapidly spreading ii
this country, that is, putting alum in the
oread we eat. 1 his question is causing
a great deal of discussion at the present
moment, as it is revealed that alum
being used as a substitute for cream of
tartar in baking powders. A story is
told that a very large percentage of the
baking powders sold on the market con-
ibiu eiuier slum or ammonia, and
many of them contain both these per
nicious drugs. Much timely alarm in
felt at the wholesale use of alum in
bread, biscuit and pastry. To younv
children, growing girls, persons of
weakly frame, alum bread eaten morn
ing, noon and evening is the most
harmful. It is the small quantities taken
at every meal that do the mischief.
Alum is cheap, costing but 2 or 3 cents a
pound, while cream of tartar costs 30
cents, and the high price of cream of tar
tar has led cheap baking powder to be
made of alum. If the reader wants to
know something of the corrosive ouali
ties of alum, let him touch a piece to his
tongue; then reflect how it acts on the
tender, delicate coats of the stomach.
The Scientific American published in a t
recent number a list of alum and am-
