MORE OU FROM COTTON SEED.
By the Use of Certain chemicals the
Last Traces of Oil May be Got
ten from the Cotton
News and Courier.
Columbia, September 6.-The rapid
prgres made by cotton seed oil in
establishing ifself in the marlets of
the world as a food produet fias ,re
moved from the market a gr' at iol
ume of this oil that was heretofore
used for soap ou account of its low
pice. Considerable more oil could; be
ex:.raeted frm the cotton seed if a
suitable solvent were used to remove
the last traces of oil which are now
left in the cotton seed meal and which
it is impossible to remove by the
methods for the manufacture of an
edible oil. A recent discovery has
been made by chemists which will do
away with carbon bisulphide for ex
tracting the oil from the meal. The
bisulohide renders the oil unfit for
edible use and is extremely combusti
ble. For this reason only one or two
such plants have been established.
The new process contemplates the use
of carbon tetrachloride, which is a
better solvent and is non-inflamma
ble. If all of the cotton seed meal
were treated with this solvent it
would increase the yield of cotton
seed oil about 15 per cent and not af
feet the value of the meal as food for
The advance made by hte oil mills
in economic manufacture has been
very great in the past five years, but
it is something along this line that is
needed to bring about the maximum
production of oil from the seed. It
has not yet been demonstrated wheth
er the oil extracted by tetrachloride
will be suitable for edible purposes,
but this oil would at least be used by
the soap makers to take the place of
the better gi-ades of oil which they
have been using in the past.
Cotton seed oil is now recognized
the world over as one of the staple
oils for human consumption and the
world took during, the past season ev
ery gallon of oil that was inanufac
tured and there is now no stock of
oil with which to supply immediate
demands. the result being high prices
for oil for Septembe,r delivery.
THE REAL IRELAND.
Some Interesting Facts About Her
People and Resources.
The accepted Irish type of the mas
ses-the stage Irishman--may be
amusing, but he smacks also of indol
enee, thriflessness. a tendency to
drink and even a lack of certain pri
Foi-tunately, these failings are not
characteristic of the Irish people as
a whole. In every quarter of the globe
Irish men and women have showni
themselves hard workers; if they
have not displayed the same energy
at home it is because of the general
aricultural 'oppression and depres
sion, because of insanitary dwellings
and insufficient food.
As to drink, contrary to the general
supposition, the Irishman spends a
less average on it than does the Eng
lishman or Scott, moreover, the Irish
man spends more on beer than spirits,
the contrary being true of the Scot;.
Furthermore, and even more suir
prising to many statistics show the
Irish to be less criminally inclined
than are the inhabitants of Great
Britain: in particular, as to sexual
morality, the stranger in Ireland -is
invariably surprised by the rectitude
of the people.
In 1841 Ireland's population was
estimated at 8,100.000; in 1901, at
4.400000. Thus in sixty years the po
pulation fell by nearty 4,.000.O

THE HARM IN SMOKING.
English Physician Says Greatest Dan

Smoker's are frequently tempted
to increase their consumption of to
bacco, in proportion to the extension
of leisure at command. Smoking ex
erts a special fascination when it may
be indulged in every moment through
out the day. The temptation has al
ways been found difficult to resist,
when it besets a man who is on holi
day bent. The mere absence of re
strictions tends to induce pleasure
I seekecs to be more free than they oth
The two grounds upon which smok
ing is condemned which appear wor
thv of serious consideration are the
poisonous action of the nicotine and
the usei,.as expenditure entailed. Let
11s tke the latter objection first.
That tobacco is a necessity ,for
health an1 happiness no sane person
would ?ver contend. All that its
most devoted friends can claim is
that smoking is an- expensive lux
ury. A luxury, in fact, that affords
an amount of enjoyment out of all
proportion to its triffing Cdst.
More serious harm results from
lack of self-control with regard to
dietary than is ever likely to follow
from even an excessive use of tobac
co. Indeed, there is not a single thing
we enjoy, though it be perfectly
right and lawful in itself, that is not
eqully open to some similar objec
Perhaps the strongest argument
suppose$ to tell against the smoker
is ba.ed up:wn te o:oncus action

cireulatory system. This intoxica
tion has never been disputed, for it
inevitably follows a too extravagant
consumption of tobacco. Yet it is
only when te smoking is exces.vc
that any baneful influence is exerted
on the healthy body.
Exactly the same kind of toxic
properties that non-smokers ascribe
to tobacco abtach to other vegetable
n1ro'fths in common and daily use.
Now, what are the conditions so
frequently described as the direct
outcome of excessive smoking? They
are but two in number. (1) An alter
ed rhythm in the beating of the heart;
and (2). an impairment of vision,

These conditions are never brought
aout uinkss the smoking has been
carried to unwarrantable excess.
When either of them is detected,
either by the physician or the smok
er him:self, there ~a.p5e warning to
put a man on his guard. If he is
prmpted to reduce his consumption
o tobacco. or I > abandon smoking al
together. the trouble soon clears up,
anI no permanent injury is the least
lkelv to ensue.
The late Prof. Huxley once wrote,
I Tc.re is no more harm in a pipe
than there is in a cup of tea. You
may poion yourself by drinking1 too
mu.1. tea, or kill yourself by eating
too maniy beefsteaks."
Dr. Lancaster said: "I dare not as
a physiologist or a statist tell you,
that there exists any proof of an in
jurious influence (of tobacco) when
used in moderation. The first symp
toms of giddiness, palpitationi, indo
lence or any uneasiness while smok
ing should influence you to lay it
of course, whether at home or on
holiday, if a man stub:ornly persists
Iin smoking after it shows signs of
disagreement, he must expect to have
to pay for it. If a man who ordinar
ily smokes, say, two ounces a week
doubles or trebles this quantity as a
holiday pleasure. then his smoking
lays him open to serious risks.
