PRESERVATION <?F THK CITY'S EARLY
RECORDS.
T.. the rSdltor of The Tri!.un-.
Sir: Allow me lo suggest that on?> of th?? first
acts of the reform administration should be the
preservation, by printing, of thn early records
..f ih.? Common Council ??f th.- city, and ihe pro?
? a suitable room where they can !?? oui?
suit???!. These records, according to the custodian's
statement, now ? mi:; rise etx or seven volume?
in ili.? Dutch language, and about seventy-five in
English, covering the period from tit. city's set?
tlement t.? lS3ia after which year they began to be
printed. This?? volumea are atored i;i four large
safes in a narrow, stuffy liti .? room m ih.? south?
??ast corner of th.? Cltj Hail. They an? under the
Immediate care of th? C! rk of the Board of Al?
dermen, but m order to consult them on? must
?-.?.k out the City clerk In another corner of the
bull p. -?. and get ?? t.. mitt from him. Then they
? usi be consulted In the stuffy little room witfi
iis one window and desk and musty, tomblike
atmosphen The volumes, many of them, are In
very bad condition. The covers are ?.IT, leaves
???.? loose : in ?ome perhaps missing; If not,
they soon will be, unie ?teps are taken to
preserve them. One ol the flrst acts of the new
r.'--'irii.? sh. aid be to appoint a commission of
scholars and conveyancers, under who-? direction
these Invaluab.? record? ahould be transcribe?!,
edited, Indexed and printed Then they should
i??? nal.? available for research. Surely New-York,

Sir: Asan old-tin? reader Of "The Tribune." with
?ill appi??.dation thai II rasls its gleite? In all
dt??.?, iions. correcting all abusee, ? wish to call at?
tention to iln? "pettily and dishonor" to whl.h the
falher of our ?ounlry is being subjected In the
present uu ie of two-ceni ?tamps, i t?iught ?????
on W.??In.?slay, and found, in piece of ihe ??p???

worst of ull beliis au abseui? of mucilage ou the
PASKOLA VINDICATED.

The results obtained by certain professed
chemists in an attempt to nnalyz?? Paskola are
BO fir fr in th?? truth that wo have every reason
to ht lleve th?; ptrpttrators to lie In the employ
?'f rival manufacturers,
(posslhly pop!? inter
csi-d In preparations of
cod liver oil), whose
bnsfncM has bcrn in
Jilted hy the merited
!?"!'ii!arity ,,f Paskola.
Ths suspicion Is strength?
ened by the fart that
the untruthful reports as
t> th?? cnnip sltion of
Paskola have been wide?
ly circul?t??.1 through the
maus a ? ?1 otherwise.
Among the things the so
calk il "chemists" have
Bl ? ted, is ?hat Paskola
wa. nothing l?ut glucose
,? ? ?, hydrochloric acid,
? h ? ridiculousness o f
Whl? h assertion wtll be
in ??.e clear by the fol?
lowing experiment:
Take twn pint bottles
and in "im place a table
sp ?onftll "f gltn'ose and In
th?? other a like ?inantity
o i I'asKoli; fill them
With water, shake thoroughly nnd add to each
forty drops of muriatic or hydrochloric add, in
order to Imitate the acidity o? th?? natural gas
trlc Juice. Having previously Bnel) min.? s qp-an?
tity of raro ?.r raw ???,?? I.??? f, Chicken, the white
of hard boiled eggs or similar foods, put Into
each bottle one ot a? ? Immerse ih?? bottles in
warm wat?, ant* carefully maintain th?? c??n
tents at a temperature of l(? tc to."? degree?
Fahrenheit, frequently shaking In order to thor?
oughly expose the food to tbe action of the so?
in: ?.
In the coi ?- ? of a Vi tv short time, the contenta
of the bottle containing Paskola will be seen to
undergo a change, and In two >.r thr???? hours
the f....,! win have become entirely dissolved or
digested; whereas the contents nf the other bot?
tle containing th?? glucose and a? Id will show
no change beyond ? slight dlfterenm in appear*
ance.
if you have neither the facilities nor th? In?
clination to make the tej? for yourself, we have
in? doubt that your druggist will be glad t.? try
the experiment. Th?? tubes herewith show the
results ? f s teal mad- ir. ??ur own laboratory, the
cuts i? Ing from a photograph, No. I contalneal
glucose, .?id ?o. 2 Paskola, What ara ure to
conclude? One >>f tw ? things: either that th?' so
called "chemists" are ignorant or dishonest.
Glucose has no digestive pr.'p-itles. This Is
a well-known fnct, whereas Paak >la la giving re
lief t" thousands <<t dyspeptics, a truth attested
by the uns. Netted tMtlmonlals that pour In
upon us. The ?presence .?f digestir? ferments in
Paskola 'aun"? be ?.-teimined by chemical test.
No one has ever seen digest.v.- ferments in a
pur?? form, am' the only \\..; to determine their
presence Ie by observing the
pr duce upon t.1. Thh
fleets which they
is a faci recognised
by every authority and will h- found stated in
roster's Physiology and other standard works.
Another thing, which these ignorant and Jeal?
ous rivals have s.,id ghoul I'ask da, is that Inas?
much as Itr basis is pre-dlgested starch, it Is
calculated to encourage diabetes.
Wo cannoi better anew? th'i charge than by
quoting a paragraph from a report mal?? to
Mayor Ollroy. <>.' New-York, by I>r. ?Cyrus Ed
son. Commissioner of Health for the City of New
York and for th- BUM of New-York.
"i'l. -.Iig-s;.''l star h la Btarch in the <?xact

ThN letter from Dr. Eds-n wa? written In
