OUR PARIS LETTER SCIENTIFIC. ADULTERATION OF SULPHATE OF QUININE. [Newspaper Article] — Portland Guardian — 24 November 1876

OUR PARIS LETTER. SCIENTIFIC. ADULTERATION ON SULPHATE OF QUININe; In the Journal des Connoissances Mfedicales, Professor Jaillard devotes an article to the exposure of one of the most barefaced alulterations yet re corded, and, being practised on a sub. stance which is implicitly relied on by physicians of the present day as a specifie in a variety of cases, is calcu. lated to lead to deception likely to be extremely injurious both to the patient and to the reputation of tilhe prac. titiouer. This substance is sulphate of quinino. Its adulteration is effected with wonderful cleverness and in credible audacity, it being sold in bottles bearing the label, seal, and prospectus of the firm Armet do Lisle A and Co., a.circumstancoe which may t lead to prosecution for forgery. Ac. s cording to ProfessorJaillard's analysis, t the adulteration consists in mixing ] nitrate of potash (saltpetre) with sut phate of quinine in the enormous pro portion of 70 per cent. of the former. t This mixtu...

THE LALE CARDINAL ANTONELLI. [Newspaper Article] — Portland Guardian — 24 November 1876

THE LALE OARDINAL ANTO NELLI. Death has removed the master spirit of the Vatican, and one of the foremost statesmen in Italy. Giacomo Antonelli, at'the age of 70, has ceased to be a figure in contemporary history. At once the son of a poor woodman, and the descendant of an ancient family in Romagna, he first saw the light in the village of Sonnino, a a very nest of vultures, as Edmund About calls it. Most of its inhabi tants were brigahds by profession, and if little Antonelli had any predeliction for that sort of a life, it was probably chocked by seeing so many of the houses of his neighbours razed to the ground,, and their heads chopped off" and displayed upon the top of the Porto San Pietro, close by his father's e cottage. He saw that a safer and more lucrative career was open to him in Rome, where he entered the seminary, with a view to embracing the priest hood. He soon distinguished himself i by his abilities, and was fortunate enough to become a favourite with Gregory XVI.,...

A NIAGARA BEAR INCIDENT. [Newspaper Article] — Portland Guardian — 24 November 1876

SA NIAGARA BAR INCIDENT. In the summer of 1816 three men living about three miles above the Falls, saw a bear swimming in tlhe river. Thinking he would be a capital prize theystarted for him in a large sitbstantial log caric or ' dug-out.' When they overtook him he seemed quite obliged for their attention, and quietly putting his paws on the side of the canoe, drew himself into it, not. withstanding that they vehemently be laboured him with their paddles. As he came in'on one side two of the men went into the water on the other side. The third, who may be called Fisher, could not swin; and naturally enough felt somewhat embaraised. Much to his relief the animal deliberately sat down in the bow of the canoe 'faoing him. As the noise of the rapids and roar of the Falls reminlded him that they were ominously near, Fisher re solved to take advantage of the truce and pull vigorously for the shore. But when; he began, to paddlo the bear began to growl his objections, enforcing tiem at the...
