Food and drink salvaged after 109 years in river WASHINGTON (AP) The whisky was watered, the brandy and bitters were off-flavor and the oysters had turned to mush. But that wasn't surprising, since the food and drink was recently salvaged from the steamboat Bertrand which went to the bottom of the Missouri River 109 years ago. Stored in their original bottles and cans, the goods were brought here for extensive testing in the National Canners As- sociation laboratories. The oysters glopped unappetizingly on to a sterile tray but smelled strongly of oysters, indicating that entombment in water and mud for more than a century had not broken the can's seal and allowed bacteria to enter. Those who tasted the bitters, sold as a patent medicine then but popular because it contained 40 per cent alcohol, said it smacked of a "strange flavored vermouth." The whisky, they agreed, was unpalatable, and the brandy was "awfully strong and wooden-flavored." A bottle of tomato ketchup produced while the Civil War was raging indicated that it still contained about seven milligrams of vitamin C per 100 milligrams, roughly half the average recognized for fresh ketchup by the U.S. agriculture de- partment. The hand-soldered oyster can was in remarkably good condi- tion, but the bottle corks had deteriorated. Scientists said the jars of pickles and vegetables recovered from the Bertrand probably would have been edible, but they had been preserved in formaldehyde and alcohol by the salvagers.
