About eight years ago Professor Rcmsen of the John Hopkins 'University was conduct ing some investigations into tho oxidation of certain derivatives of toluene, n well-known hydrocarbon obtained froin coal tar. A part of tho research ho placed in tho hands of a student, Mr. Constantino Fnhlborg, who, working upon a given plan and under direc tion, obtained, among other products, a now compound, which reee.ived tho name of ' benzoic sulphinide.' This compound, tho Bnccuarin' ot to-uay, was found to have a sweet taste, much more intense than that of cane sugar ; and an account of it was pub lished by Remsen and Fnhlborg, as joint authors, in the American Chemical Journal for Fobruary, 1880. It proved to bo the type of a new series of organic compounds, which are still under investigation nt Balti more, and which havo no relation whatever to tho sugars.

Traveller. [Newspaper Article] — Riverina Recorder — 27 July 1887
traveller. : Tho Indian Scout.— The Apache scout is independent of circniiistances. Ho trudges along unconcernedly in cold nnd rainy weather. Ho finds food, and pretty good food, too, where tho Caucasian would starve. Knowing tho habits of wild animals from his earliest youth, ho can catch* turkeys, quail, rabbits, doves, or field mice, and, perhaps, r, prnlrie dog or two, which will supply him with meat. For some reason ho cannot bo induced to touch fish, and bacon or any other product of tho hog- is eaten only undor ciurcss ; Dnt tho llcsh of n horse, mule, or jackass, which has dropped exhausted on tho march and beon left to die on tho trail, is n delicious morsel which tho Apacho epicura seizes upon whenever possible.

Then came separation, I remaining in our native town of Spillton, to share the practice my father had built up there, Jack going to Smithville, to take the place of a phy sician who had died there of sheer old age. Five years passed. My father was dead, nrifl T Viftrl fhn Inrrmcf. nmpllnn In Crv;iW»** sufficiently engrosssing to have made me a steady fellow, looking ten years older than my actual nge before I wns thirty.
