SAID TO HF ALI M POISONING.
Serious cases of illness reported from
the use of impure baking powder.
Johnstown Penn., Tribune.
The poisoning of the Thomas family,
of Thomas' .Mill, Somerset Co , four
members of which were reported to
have been made dangerously ill by
Impure baking powder used in mixing
buckwheat cakes, has been further in
The original can with the remainder
of the baking powder left over after
mixing the cakes was secured bv Dr.
Critchflold, The powder had been
bought at a neighboring country store
and was one of the low priced brands.
Dr. Oritohtield said the patients had
the symptoms of alum poisoning. As
the same kind of baking powder Is
sold In many city groceries, as well as
country stores, Dr.Crltchficld thought
It important that a chemical cxamina*
tion should be made to determine Its
ingredients. He therefore transferred
the pack-are of powder to Dr. Schill, of
this city, for analysis. Dr. Sen ill's re
port is as follows:
I eortlfy that I have examined chemi
cally tho -ample, of " * * baking
powder forwarded to me by Dr.Crltch
liold. The specimen contained alum.
Dr. Francis Schill, Analyst.
Alum is used in the manufacture of
the lower priced baking powers. It Is
a mineral poison, and for this reason
