BEWARE THE HAMBURGER.
A Snare and a Delusion and in Some
Cases Rank Poison.
Ware the I1amburger steak. It is
a snare and delusion and by and by

This all came out in the upper
house of the council recently. when
an ordinance was passes making it
prohibitive to use salts of suiphurous
acid in articles of food. The aider
men were suspicious of the whole
business and took the word of the
board of health for it that the ordi
nance would be a good law. They
passed it without debate. Dr. Cutler.
the meat inspector, was on hand to
tell what he knew about it. He saia
he was after the lunch cart man and
the place where they pile up great
puddles of Hamburger steak.
"Rank poison," said Dr. Cutler. "It
is all rank poison. I know a man
who daily makes iooo pounds of blue
meat look like the reddest and fresh
est 1Iamburger. He sells -it to the
night lunch wagon men and they
make sandwiches of it. 'Freezum' is
the commerical name of salts or sul
phurous acid. When put in 'smellin'g'
game it takes the odor away, and
when mixed with antique shanks, ox
hearts, old livers or fly-blown meat
it turns it red and gives it a fresh
appearance. This commands a retail
market and then the damage starts.
It is used in Hamburger steak be
cause it can be worked all through
that sort of stuff. It makes the meat
tough and it turns the s-.lphurous acid
into sodium hydrogen -sulphide. When
this gets into the stomach the .iucies
turn all this into sulphuric acid, and
there is your poison."
Dr. Cutler says there is a growing
trade in the "freezum," but this is to
be nipped now that an ordinance is
passed imposing a fne of from STO to
$oo and laying the seller liable to
12 months in jail.

th oha whale yields whalebone
and such is the demand of corset
manufacturers for this material that
the source of supply bids fair to be
exhausted. No satisfactor; substitute
has yet been divised, and the conse
quence is that the bowhead whale is
at present in the same perilous posi
tion in which his brother, the sperm
whale, found himself before the ad
vent of petroleum gave him a fresh
chance in the struggle for existence.
Last year's catch of whalebone reach
ed 70.0oo pounds as compared with
two or thre times that amount in
previous years; one-half of the ships
engaged in the industry came back
"clean." The price has naturally shot
skvwards. W\halebone. which a few
years ago cost eight shillings a pound
wholesale, has this year cost thirty
shillings. and the corset makers will
have to pay forty shillings or more.
Formerly whalebone had other use,
es besides the improvement of the fe
male figure. but with the diminution
of the stupply it came to be practically
monopolized for the purpose of fash
ion, and even in that limited field it
is now available only for the most ex
pensive wares. The prospect is not
encouraging either for the bowvhead
whale or for the dIress reformer.
There is reason to fear that both wilt
shortly be extinct.
