PopBlar Poisoning
A constant use of the rsnous adver
tised hair-washes, invigorators. restorers,
etc., produce effects which inevitably,
sooner or later, prodace ill health, and
often great bodily suffering.
Lead in aome form is one of the ingre
dients of an these mixtures. By the con
tinued application of these washes to the
skin or realp an absorption of load takes
place, and its poisonous effects manifest
themselves under the various form of lead
The effects are so slow and insidious
that, until the sufferer is entirely beyond
core, they are unnoticed, and in many
cases even then the original cause is un
known. There is no doubt that many have
gone to their graves without even their
physicians being aware of the real cause
_of the disease.
It produces neuralgia, paralysis of some
of the muscles of the face and the limbs.
Man^fftraons complain of sudden pain in
the head, ear or eye, or sometimes in the
shoulders, often in the fingers, not un fre
quently ofnnnmbnessin the limbs, hands or
feet. Careful inquiry graces these effects
to the use of some of these deleterious
compounds. It is time the warning voice
of the press should Be heard and heeded
by the thousands who are in the daily habit
of using these poisonous articles, more es
pecially as their use is making such rapid
advances in this country. So many ot
these washes are now thrown upon the
market, all professing to be perfectly in
nocuous, that people use them without the
slightest investigation not even giving a
thought to the inevitable consequences.
Of the various cosmetics now so univer
sally used by the female sex, and also l*y
many of the other sex, there is but one
word to say—they are poison in the rankest
'.hey are not only hurtful, by obstruct
ing the natural pores of the skin, stopping ]
up the mouths of the excretory ducts
which are designed by nature to throw off,
by insensible and sensible perspiration, the
impurities of the blood, but also present
ing to the absorbent vessels a poison which
is taken into the system and penetrates to
every portion of the body. The effect of
these cosmetics is to destroy the natural
texture of the skin, causing it to become
dry, wrinkled and impervious to tin
oxygen of the air, and, by depriving the
blood of this life-giving principle, produ
cing rapid decay.
Hence we see the absence of those vel
vety, peach blossoming faces in our city
walks. Instead, we meet at every step
females who resemble a kalsomincd wall,
with here and there a little coloring matter
thrown on to designate the different feat
ures. They are indeed blank walls, and
the thought cannot but arise that behind
these outer walls there must be but little,
if any, of that intelligence which should
and does beam forth in the clear eye and
healthy complexion.
If the skin be kept in a clean and healthy
condition by the frequent use of cold water,
no cosmetic would ever be necessary. Its
use removes all impurities from the skin,
stimulates its delicate net-work, allows the
oxygen of the atmosphere to come in con
tact with Hs blood vessel 1 and thus sup
plies all the needed elements to enhance
and preserve beauty.
That those who desire may be able to
discover the pfesence of lead in any of
these cosmetics and washes, we here give
a few simple, but certain tests that may be
applied with very little ex|>ense and one
easily attainable at any apothecary’s store,
vix.: by agitating a solution of sulphur
et.ed hydrogen with the wash it will turn
black or dark, and generally throw down
a precipitate at the bottom of the vessel.
Sulphide of ammonium, or sulphide of
sodium (glauber salts) have the saint
No one who values health and immunity
from incessant pain should neglect to ap
ply this test to*any compound recommenn
ed for the purpose of improving the com
plexion or coloring the hair.
Instances are daily recorded by the
press of the terrible effects of the absorp
tion of lead into thj system through the
pores of the skin, by the use of popular
skin and scalp washes, which would deter
any but the most infatuated devotees of
fashion from their use. And the instances
which are made pubii > are not a tithe of
what could be furnished by almost any
physician of an extended city practice.
We again warn all who use these cos-!
meric* that they are gradually but cer
tainly briuging upon themselves a coudi- 1
tion of health which will be one of suffer- !
ing and disease beyond the reach of rente-1
dy. By using the simple and inexpensive j
tests given above, and rejecting every tiling i
that is proved to contain lead in some j
form, they will avoid the slow poisoning
which is sure to follow their constant ap- .
plication.—Journal of Applied Chrrnintri/. |
It is announced that England alone con
sumes every year at least two thousand
tons of beeswax valued at .¥ ',100,000.
With gold at 131, tin; best In i”lit pressed
yellow' American beeswax is now selling
in England at l.r>to 51 cents a pound. Wax
candles are used cx.tcnsiv.4y the royal
palaces of Europe, and in one palace alone
It is stated that ten thousand wax candles
are burned every night. The method of
lighting this large number of candles in
stantaneously is to connect the wicks by
an iu&uuiuable and scented thread of gun
cotton. On touching the end of the thread
with a torch the flame flashes like lightning
round the connected candles, an agreeable
odor is emitted, anil ‘he apartments are
perfumed as if by magic.
llttholosj—Th<* Codfish.
- *
The codfish iz the child ov the oshiin.
This ackounts for their being so salt.
They arc caught w-i^i a hook and line,
I and bite like a steel trap, and hang on like
a poor relation.
j They are good eating for a wet day;
they a?e better than an umbreller to keep
a man dry.
Dried codfish iz one of the luxury* of
life, but codfish three times a day would
weaken my confidence in them,
j Codfish never venture in fresh water;
they would spilt- if they did.
I never have been eodflshing niiself,
but think i should like it better than fish
ing for frogs.
I think I could catch frogs well enulV,
but i should insist upon their taking them
selfs off from the honk.
I had father take a boss bumble-bee in
mi hand than a live frog, not bekanse I
am afraid the frog would bits-, but i am
afraid ov their kicking.
Sunt people ain't afraid to take ennything
with their hands, that they kan reach, not
even an eel, but if i should ever git caught
by an eel, if i couldn't settle with him,
right off, by giving bin* the. hook and line,
i would thrut* the pole into the bargain
and put for home.
The. codfish i* sed tew la an aristoknu,
and to keep aloof from the other fish o!* hiz
size in the sea, and claims tew be a rela
tion of the whales, but this looks to me
rather fishy.
1 have noticed that the codfish alwttz
haz a stiff’ upper iip, but I think this iz
more owing to the bone that iz in him than
it iz tew his blood.
The roackrel iz a game fisli They
ought tew lie well edu kilted, for they are
alwus in schools.
They are easy to bite, and are caught
with a piece ov old red flannel petty coat
tied into a hook.
They ain't the only kind ov fish that are
caught by the same kind of bait.
Mack re 1 inhabit the sea. bat those which
inhabit the grooerys alwus taste to me az
though they had been l»oni and fatted on
They want a good deal of fre.slmmg be
fore they are. eaten, and want a good deal
of freshning afterward. *
If I can have plenty of mackrel for
breakfast, I can generally make the other
two meals out ov cold water.
Mackrel are considered by menny folks
the best fish that swims, and are called
“the salt of the earth.’’
The pollywogg iz created by the sides
ov the road out ov thick water, and spends
hiz infancy in pollywogging.
After he haz got through pollywogging
he makes up hiz mind that this world want
made for pollywoggs and “nothing ven
ture nothing have,” and then he turns his
attention to bigger things.
He looks out upon life with the eye ov
wisdom, and studdying the various ani
mals ov ereashun, he dims tew the kon
klusion that the best thing he can do is tew
hekum a frog.
This iz the way that frogs fust cum tew
be made, and pollywoggs tew be lost.
The pollywogg now leaves the water,
and spends a part ov hiz summers upon
He haz tew fite his way through life,
generally goes on the jump.
lleing better at diving than at dodge*
ing, he often runs hi/, bed against sticks
and stuns that the boys throw at him, but
hiz two mortal enemy.-, are the French*
I man and the striped snaik.
j The Frenchman iz satisfied with hiz
I hind leggs, but the snaik swallows him
’ whole.
1 hav seen sum good time made by the
! frog, and the snaik, the snaik after the
j frog, and the frog alter dear life.
If the frog kan only reach a tree and
and klimb it, he iz safe, for a snaik kant
travel a tree.
I don't kno az the pollywogg gains
enny thing by swoopping hiraselt oph fora
frog, unless it iz experience, but 1 never
hav bin aide to diskover much ov enny
j happiness in experience.
If experience ever made a man happy,
i should have htippiue.ss.to sell, for i am
one of them happy phellows who never
I found ennything (not even the bite of a
; lobster) only through the kindness of ex
I tiericnee.
This remarkable beast ot prey dwells in
mill ponds and mud puddles, cluss to the
ground, and lives upon the young lizards
anil dirt.
They have no taste to their mouths, and
never spit out ennytiiing that they kan
They have two ugly black thorns stick
ing out on the sjdas ov their lied, and are
az dangerous tew handle az a six-bladed
penknife, with the blades all open to oust.
Tl 7 are like a kat; von have got to
skin them before they are tit to eat, and
after they are thoroughly cooked, if you
set them away in the cupboard until they
git void, they will begin life anew, and
become az raw vz a live mule.
They will live, after they are ded. az
long, az striped snaik kan.
1 don’t advise enny man to fish for bull
heads. but if yu feel az tho yu must, this
iz the best way to do it:
Take a dark, hot, drizzly night in the
month ov June; steal out quietly from
home ; tell yuro folks yu are going tew
the nahors to borry a setting of ben's eggs;
tiud a saw-log on the banks ov a stagnant
mill-pond, <>iie end of which lays iu the
water; drive the muiihtrkles and water
atiuiks oph from the log; straddle the log,
and let yure leggs. hang in tho water up
tew yure garters; bait yure hook with a
chunk ov old injur-rutiber shoe ; az fast
az you pull up the bull-heads, take them
by the back ov the neck and stab their
i horns into the saw-lo?; when yu hav got
the saw-log stuck full, shoulder the saw
log, and leave for home: git up the next
morning early, skin the bull-heds, and
split up the saw-log into kindling wood,
let yttre wife cook them for brekfast, and
sware the whole family to keep dark about
This iz the only respektabel way to hav
ennything to do with bull-heads.

As a newspaper, the Evening Post,
edited by \VM. CULLEN’ BUYAN'T, as
sisted by an aide corps of writers, will be
conducted with the same care which has
marked it hitherto, to exclude from all its
columns, those devoted to advertisements
as well as it« reading columns, everything
which would offend against morality and
correct taste. It shall be the care of its
proprietors to see that all its departments
are conducted with the utmost ability
which a liberal expenditure ot money and
unflagging industry can command. Its
editorial discussions will he unpartisan,
and devoted to the elucidation and ad
vancement of sound principles: its literary
criticisms shall be impartial, and as able
i,s we can make them ; its foreign corres
pondence. which has been greatly im
proved during the past year, will during
the present year lie more varied and inter
esting than ever before ; its home corres
pondence also, and especially that from
such central points of interest as Washing
ton and Albany, will be full and accurate.
Its financial and commercial reports,
which have made the paper a necessity to
business men in all parts of the country,
shall be made with the same vigilance,
accuracy and impartiality which now
characterize them. Its agricultural, ship
ping, market and other reports shall be as
trustworthy and complete as industry and
the expenditure of money van make them.
In short, we mean our journal to be so
conducted that it shall be retd with inter
est and benefit by all the members of the
family :%nd as it is one of
it shall also be one of the best newspapers
published in America.
