CUPS OF COFFEE VALUE AS STIMULANT [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 7 February 1914

CUPS OF COFFEE VALUE AS STIMULANT In a recent issue of the "Lancet" It is pointed out that hitherto such analyses of coffee as hlave from time to time been made and published have referred to an examination of the entire coffee' berry, and not to the infusion as it reaches the con s~umem'. The results are now set forth of an investigation into the composltion of the infusion to be drunk, tlhe chemistry of the "grounds" having been left out of consideration. In drawing a comparison between coffee and tea the results show that while the alkaloid caffeine .in coffee is Identical with that In tea, yet its as socinations in coffee are different. In tea infusions the alkaloid occurs chielly as a tannate, which is a com pound insoluble in tile acid juices of the stomach. In coffee It occurs In al easily soluble compound. Here would ap pear to Ibe the explalnation of the prompt action of coffee as a restora tive and stinulant, particularly when employed as an antidote to narcotic poisons. I...

TIIAINED ANIMAS I MR. THOMAS IHAltRDY'S VIEWS Mr. Thomas Hardy, in the course of a letter to "The Times," says that possibly some animals may he, and are, trained for performances without discomfort to themselves, but,there is ample evidence to show that many trainers prefer short cuts to attain their ends, and that these short cuts are by the way of cruelty.

I-Hardy, at dog performances at country fairs, where the wretched animals so trembled with terror w'hen they failed to execute the feat required of them that they could scarcely stand, and remainned with eyes of misery Hixed uipon their master, paralysed at the knowledge of what was in store for them behind the scenes, whence their shrieks could afterwards be heard through the canvas.
