DAILY PACIFIC COMMERCIAL ADVERTISER, JUNE 21, 1889.
IN A LUCIFER-MATCH FACTORY. The Dreadfully Disfiguring? Diieas Which Attacks the Employes. It certainly is unfortunate that an in vention which has been so valuable to the household and, indeed, in all cases where a ready light is desirable, should bring into the world with it so much dis ease. The makers of lucifer matches, large numbers of whom reside m Vienna, were some years ago attacked with a most cingular disease the rotting away of the jaw-bone. Together with this ugly and most disfiguring complain! there were always constitutional symp toms present which denoted the presence of poison in the blood. After a carefui inquiry the cause of of these singular at tacks was traced to the phosphorus em ployed in making the matches. How i could attack the bone was at first puzzle to the physicians, but it was at length discovered that the poisonous lumes gained admission to the bone by means of decayed teeth. Some of the German government endeavored to meet the difficulty by ex amining the mouths of all persons em ployed in lucifer match factories, and dismissing from employment any artisan who had unsound teeth. This, to a certain extent, met the case; but inas much as it is impossible to give every workman a clean bill of health with respect to his morals the remedy, ot rather the preventive, was not thorough. Some twenty years ago the disease alsa appeared in New Haven, and a medicai expert was instructed to investigate the matter. After making a careful inquiry he discovered, out of fifty-nine patients, fifteen died, and the others were greatlv disfigured by the destruction of th upper or lower jaw; in some cases both It is impossible to picture a more dia figuring disease, or one which leads to greater discomfort, inasmuch as in many cases the speech is destroyed and also the process of mastication. The only effectual method of obliter ating the disease is to get rid of the phos phorus, or of so altering its character as to deprive its fumes of their deadly vir ulence. The common spirting match is the greatest offender in this particular inasmuch as it contains the most phos phorus. Those matches made of amor phous phosphorus, or phosphorus baked for a certain period of time, are believed to be harmless. Many attempts have oeen made to produce matches from this substance in connection with chlorate of potash, and at last with success. The combination, however, only takes plac in the act of striking the light, the ut most danger existing in any attempt t combine them permanently together, The safety match is made principally of chlorate of potash, mixed with black oxide of manganese, red lead, sulphuret of antimony and glue, while the amor phous phosphorus is placed upon the box instead of the ordinary sand-paper, anc the contact of the two materials produce the light. It is unfortunate that a light can only be produced with the box, as working men do not care to bo troubled by carry ing one about. Until this difficulty is got over, this excellent invention, calculated to get rid of a most distressing disease, will only be used in the household, the ordinary match that will strike against any rough surface possessing advantages over it which the rough and thoughtles will demand. It is quite clear, however, that for all domestic purposes, the old match ought to b given up. Brooklyn Cale. jotvery N ejected In the South Atlanta Cor. Chicago Inter Ocean. A lady told me that she advertised for a good cook, and it took her mouths to find :no. Think of that, in Atlanta I The truth is that the art of cookery is ecrl3cted one in the south to-day; and those solcred girls who seek service as housemaid aavo only the crudest methods of perform jag housework. The cottage system fca rirls in a larg school is a most important fclucational discovery, and must come into prominence in the future. I have had a chance to verify in mjr jwn experience the greatest need of good sooks in the south, liven where the hotels Utempt to provide an elaborate bill of fare, Ihe dishes are ill-cooked, and not appetia Inelv served: especially in the small town 'hot' biscuits are furnished at all meals; but often they are raw at the bottom, and Bither as yellow as a sunflower with soda, or as heavy as the Egyptian pyramids. As all through the Orient, meats are served swim ming in grease, usually flavored with onion, or perhaps it would be more accurate to say that a sort of onion soup is served which aontains accidental islands of fried sole- leather. Irish potatoes are most often con soicuous bv their absence, and rice or horn- Iny as impertinently ubiquitous. Good cooks are so scarce in Atlanta that I heard one man surest to another that tha latter be good enough to loan him his for a certain and important occasion. Will some moneved philanthropist devote himself to the task of developing thU embryo cottagO trstem? Musical Publishers and Amateai ' Hasic publishers, equally with oook publishers, have large dealings with am ateurs, that is to say, with people who have written sonjrs as a diversion, and are determined to have them published at ail hazards. And music publishers tell some very funny stories about such experiences. One funny story they do not tell either with frequency or gusto. In several cases amateurs who have pub- blished songs on their own account have etumbled upon successes, and, of course, have pocketed all the profits. This con tingency is now provided against by pub lishers requiring that the amateur song writer shall buy a sufficient number of his songs at the retail price to cover the cost of publication. Thereafter the pub lisher pays the amateur a royalty oa every copy sold, just as though he wer a professional. New York Mail and Express. experiment on a Frog's Muscles. If we place a drop of acid on the skin of the lumbar region of a decapitated frog, we immediately see the foot on the corresponding side lifted to scratch it and rub the spot irritated by the acid. Is we repeat the experiment after hav ir,g amputated the foot, the application of the acid puts the frog into an evident etate of agitation. It makes fruitless ef forts with the stump, hesitates, stopa, aeems to reflect and ends by employing the other foot to wipe off the acid. Journal of Mental Science.
