British Medical Nows The frequent cases of nervous pros tration or utter collapse of the nervous system under which women go all to pieces as the saying is have caused much thought and investigation on the part of physicians Certain inorganic substances are well known to cause various forms of ner vous diseases which are readily traced to the poisons producing them Fur ther research leads to the belief that alum is a prevailing cause of socalled nervous prostration for the symptoms it produces on the nervous system after its absorption into the blood are very remarkable indeed Experiments Reliable Footwear Here physiologically made upon animals Ortila Professors Haas Mayer Paul Seim and others show that alum fre quently produces no visible symptoms for many days after its introduction in to the body Then follow loss of appe tite and other alimentary disturbances and finally a serious prostration of the whole nervous system The most prominent physicians now believe that nervous prostration and many affec tions of the nerves from which both men and women suiter are caused by the continued absorption of alum into the system It is probable that manymedical men are unaware of the extent to which salts of alumina may be introduced in to the body being under theimpression that the use of alum in bread is pro Ihibited Alum however is still used surreptitiously to some extent to whiten bread and very largely in making cheap kinds of baking powder In families where baking powder is generally used great care should be exercised to pro cure only those brands made from cream of tartar Tho alum baking powders may generally be distinguished by the lower price at which they are sold Notice It has come to our knowledge that butter of an inferior quality is being sold in
