Puller's earth was so called because the material was originally used In "fulling" of blankets and similar ma terial, but this use has been abandoned at least In this country. It Is now chiefly used as a Altering medium In clarifying or bleaching fats, greases and mineral and vegetable oils. It is now made use of in the manufacture of pigments for printing wall paper,' In detecting certain coloring matters in some food products, as a substitute for talcum powder, and in medicine as a poulice and as an antidote for alkaloid poisons. Another suggested use Is in dellming hides In the manufacture of leather.
