Skius of Fruit,
The skins of fruit should never be
eaten, not because they are not palatable
or digestible or are unbealthy in them-
selves, but on account of the danger
arising from microbes which have pene:
trated into the covering of the fruit.
Everybody has noticed that at times a
slight scratch will create a considerable
sore on the buman body. It is gen-
erally ascribed to an unhealthy condition
of the blood, but a close microscopical
examination will show that it is due to
the presence of microbes thus introduced
into the system. So with an apple,'a
peach, a pear,or a grape. The fruit
may be perfectly sound and healthy,but
on the skin or covering may be mi-
crobes,which,introduced into the human
system, will breed disease. These gers
are not uncommon, neither are they al-
ways present. It is possible to eat this
covering without injury, but the danger
is such that it is best not to incur ‘the
