A Proo«»» by Which Fresh FUli Can Ba
Freterved lor Many Months.
An important step in advance of the
preservation of food, more particularly
fresh fish, has been made by Mr. August
R. Roosen, of Hamburg, who has in
vented a process which promises very
largely to conserve and cheapen fish
supplies by preventing the wholesale
waste which frequently occurs in fish
markets. The process is very simple,
and can be carried out by any ordinary
fisherman. It consists in placing the
fish directly they are caught in a steel
barrel, a number of which may be car
ried on board fishing-smacks or other
vessels. The fish having been placed in
the barrel it is then fUled up with an
antiseptic solution consisting of boraclc
acid, tartaric acid, salt, and water, the
proportions being three per cent, of the
antiseptics and ninety-seven per cent of
water. The barrel is then closed by
menus of an air-tight lid fitted with a
small valve connection, to which is tem
porarily attached a tube from a small
hydraulic hand pump. With this pump
water is forced into the barrel (the air
being at the same time expelled until
the gauge indicates a pressure of about
sixty pounds per square inch, when the
tube is disconnected, and the operation
of packing is complete, the pressure
from the inside closing the valve and
keeping it closed. To open the barrel
a small stop-nut is first unscrewed,
which relieves the pressure, the lid is
then taken off, and the contents of the
barrel removed. The process has been
under practical trial for about a year,
and having proved to be in every re
spect a success, a private demonstra
tion of the invention was given recently
at No. 63 Cornhill, London, to a num
ber of scientific and other gentlemen
interested in the question of food pre
servation. The demonstration was con
ducted by Mr. A. Swierzchowski, as
representing Mr. Roosen, who has done
much in perfecting the practical details
of the invention. A cask containing a
number of tine salmon, which had been
caught at Montrose and placed in the
solution on July 12, was opened and the
fish taken out. The flesh was perfectly
firm, and on cutting a fish in halves it
presented every appearance of having
been freshly caught At a luncheon
which followed this salmon was pre
served. some grilled and some bottled,
and the perfect flavor and quality of the
fish were unquestionable. One of the
visitors slated that in order to satisfy
himself he had followed the salmon
to the kitchen, and had seen it
frilled and brought up to table.
t should be stated that the anti
septic solution is perfectly harmless.
The casks hold about three hundred
pounds of fish each, and the operation
of expelling the air and putting on the
pressure only occupies about ten min
utes. On being discharged from the
vessels the casks of fish can be for
warded to the inland centers of con
sumption, where they need not be
opened tint 1 the contents are absolutely
required. Or the casks may be emptied
from the ship and the fish sent up by
rail in packages, as it is stated that the
fish will keep fresh for several days af
ter being taken from the casks. A
great economy, too. will be effected by
adopting water carriage for the fish
thus preserved instead of transit by
railway. Among the many practical
tests to which the process has been put,
fish preserved by it have been sent from
Norway to London, and from Shetland
to different parts of Scotland. The in
vention is not confined to the preserva
tion of fish, although it has hitherto been
tested mainly in thw direction. OnJuly
1 a steel cask in which a quantity of beef
had been placed under pressure on Feb
ruary 5 last was opened at Copenhagen,
some having been boiled and some
roasted. It is stated that those who
partook of it pronounced the flavor in
both cases to be perfectly good. It
would thus appear to be a very impor
tant invention as regards the preserva
tion of fresh food, particularly fish.—

A Pie» for Temperance in Ut* ÜK
One of the most interesting of th#
papers read before the State Sanitary
Convention was in the form of a warn
ing against intemperance in the use of
drugs. The writer. Dr. Frank Wood
bury, of this city, has permitted the
publication of this uoteworthy contri
bution to popular knowledge in ad
vance of the annual report of the con
vention. and It Is certainly worthy of
careful study. The habit of taking into
the system drugs of whose ultimate
effects the partaker is either ignorant
or suprein. lv careless has grown very
common of late among a large class of
people who are usually credited with
more than ordinary intelligence. Dr.
Woodbury's experience leads him to
the conclusion that it has attained to
such considerable proportions as to
command attention and consideration
from all medical practitioners. He
finds the physic-tippler and medicine
bibber ev< rywhere—not the solicitous
and over-anxious citizen, who, with
every slight cold or sore joint, rushes
off to a doctor for a course of constitu
tional treatment, nor altogether the
devotees of narcotic and stimulant
drugs, but a great mass of people who
use almost every description of real or
pretended medicament without knowl
edge and without stint. Even the com
paratively harmless and innocuous soda
water fountain has been diverted to the
use of the physic-tippler, for upon in
quiry Dr. Woodbury found that power
ful tinctures, extracts and elixirs, as
well as potassium and sodium b.-omide,
soda mint, sodium bicarbonate, acid
phosphate and aromatic spirits of am
monia, were regularly served out to
patrons of soda-water fountains in the
drug stores. Probably very few of
these customers could give a logical or
pathological reason for this form
mixtures, which might or might
not prove harmless, but which,
in any case, could not bo classed as
remedial agents. For over-medication

slave of a habit of drugging often per
sists until an enfeebled digestion and
a collnpsi I nervous system sound im-
erative notes of warning.
In the immense increase noted of
te years in the preparation of nar-
otic and alkaline drugs, as well as in
the continuous accessions to the
amount of money invested in making
patent medicines. Dr. Woodbury finds
reasons for believing that the praotice
of medicine bibbing is more than keep
ing pace with the growth of wealth
and population. Especially has there
been increase in the demand for »hose
drugs that act specifically upon the
nervous system. But few years ago
the bromides were little known or
used; at I he present time it is esti
mated that over two hnndred tons are
annually used in this country. Chloral
hydrate has been in use but fifteen
years, yet its consumption in Europe
and America now amounts to many
hundreds of tons each year, while of
the opium products, of ether, chloro
form and the iodides, there is a con
stant flow from a severely-taxed yet
apparently exhaustless source of sup
ply. Dr. Woodbury tells of a formula
for a mixture containing chloral wliieh
he saw conspicuously posted behind a
druggist's counter. It was found on
inquiry that the posting was merely a
matter of convenience, since the calls

pieiit. Alcoholic mixtures he learned
were similarly redemanded, often for
months after the occasion for their use
had passed away.
