The art of brewing was known to the
Egyptians many hundred years before the
Christian era, and, later, beer was the ordin
ary beverage of Julius Ctesar's soldiers.
"When the Romans invaded Britain they
took with them the art of brewing, and when
beer entered England it went to stay; for
ever since the invasion of the festive Roman
tbe English-speaking people everywhere
have been inseparably attached to brewed
malt liquor. Some want it as stout, others
as ale, and still'others as porter; but the
difference is little they are all beer. In
every country into which beer has been in
troduced, it has become the national bever
age, until now it is the favorite drink in all
northern and temperate parts of Europe and
Asia. Even in Paris, where wine and
absinthe are supposed to hold full sway,
beer is consumed to an cnormons extent.
Coming home, Allegheny county con
sumed, approximately, 15,000,000 gallons of
beer during the year ending June 30, 1889.
These figures represent about 30 gallons
for each man, woman and child in the
A PERTINENT QUESTION.
How, considering this enormous and uni
versal use of beer, and in view of the fact
that, locally, an enormously greater than
usual amount of this beverage has been
consumed recently, the quality of beer being
manufactured is a matter of importance.
Some investigations into its purity, then,
but be interesting and timely. An analysis
for'impuritiesoflS samples of beer as it is
furnished to the Pittsburg consumer by
brewers, within and without the county,
gives the following results:
Lead present In three samples.
Arsenic present In two samples.
Cocculus milieus (picrotoxin) present In five
balicylic acid present in two samples.
Strychnine present in no samples.
Picric acid present In no samples.
Tobacco present in no samples.
Opium present in no samples.
Bacteria (living) present in no samples.
Of the three brands of beer containing
lead, one was of bottled and two of tapped
beer. How the metal came to be present in
the bottled article can only be conjectured
(probably it was from artificial glucose used
as an adulterant), but it is quite certain that
the presence of lead in the tapped beer was
owing to the fact that the beer was con
veyed from the barrel in the cellar to the
faucet in the barroom by a lead pipe of
about 25 feet in length in the one instance,
aud35feetin theother. Thefreeacids, acetic,
lactic and carbonic, in the beer, converted
the metallic lead into soluble salts which
were dissolved and carried along by the
beer flowing through the pipes.
THE DANGER OP LEAD PIPES.
Dr. Hay, the well-known chemist, some
time ago pointed ont the danger of using
lea'd pipe for this purpose, and recommended
that a pipe of iron, lined with an enamel
free from lead, be used instead. It may be
mentioned that the samples of tapped beer
wh&ch contained lead were obtained when
wefhad more than 93 saloons in the city
a time when beer had more opportunity to
ciand in the pipes than it has. now. It is
true that the quantity in one case wonld be
small, but, as vis well known to medical
science,, lead, like all .metals, tends to ac
cumulate in the system, and, no
matter how small tbe dose, it will
eventually produce chrouio lead poison
ing. Physicians are constantly meeting
with cases where this form of poisoning can
be diagnosticated, but where it is a very
difficult matter to ascertain the source of the
lead. Until pipes made of material other
than lead are used lor tapping, beer must
come in for a share of the blame in these
cases, if the patient is a beer drinker. A
professional friend of mine had two patients,
both bar keepers (though in different
saloons), who were suffering with chronic
lead poisoning. The source of the lead in
both instances, my friend and I agreed, and
analysis showed, was the lead tap pipe. A
cample from each of these saloons is in
cluded in the table above and constitute two
f the three instances in which '
LEAD WAS POUND.
In both cases, no lead was detected in
cr taken directly from the bar
's. As soon as the matter was
ught to the notice of the pro
etors of the respective saloons, they im
diately made arrangements to have the
er barrels placed in the barroom and
uped directly with a spiggot, without the
ntervention of compressed air and lead
ipe, or pipe of any kind; and, though the
wo bartenders continued to drink beer as
nefore, the symptoms of lead poisoning all
How the arsenic found in two samples got
into the beer, is a matter very easy of ex
planation. In order to increase the profits,
the unscrupulous brewers of these beers
bad used artificial glucose in the manufac
ture. This substitution would be harmless
and justifiable, perhaps, were it not for the
fact that in the artificial conversion of starch
into glucose, sulphuric acid is used. Now
commercial sulphuric acid almost invariably
contains arsenic Whence the
ARSENIC IN THE BEER.
True, this poisonous metal was not founed
in very great -quantity, and probably would
net as a tonic and increase the avoirdupois
of the man who drinks four Or five glasses
daily of the beer containing it; but what of
the man who drinks 15 or 20 glasses or more
a day? If he drinks continually of that
one brand ot beer he must inevitably suffer
from chronic arsenical poisoning. This is
no gauzy hyp6thesis; it has occurred with
in the writer's personal knowledge.
Picrotoxin was lound in bve sampler It
is the poisonous active principle of coccnlus
indicus, the fruit of which was used to
adulterate the beer for the purpore of
cheaply increasing its bitterness and intox
icating effects, with a corresponding saving
of bops and ot malt
A CHEAP ADULTERANT.
It talies but very little cocculus indicus
to infuse a great amount of bitterness into
an enormous quantity of beer, and as but
one-twentieth of a grain, when repeated sev
eral times at short intervals, is sufficient to
produce the intoxicating effects of
tbe drug, it is seen that it
makes a cheap adulterant. A solution con
taining the picrotoxin obtained from a
sample ot beer was injected hypodermatic
ally into a guinea pig, with the result of
literally Jieing him up in a knot with the
tetani6 spasms. Death followed iu a short
time. This is called the pbvsiological test for
picrotoxin, and, though a little hard on the
guinea pig, is confirmatory of the accuracy
of the chemical test. It is possible that the
intoxication due in part to tie picrotoxin in
beer may have something to do with many
acts of violence which might not be com
mitted under the influence of alcohol alone.
The effects of the lope-continued use of
picrotoxin are most disastrous, the nervous
system being chiefly affected. The differ
ence between drinking a pure beer and one
containing picrotoxin is, other things being
equal, simply years taken from the life of
the man who drinks the adulterated
AIT UNNECESSARY EVIL.
Salicylic acid is not a danrerous adulter
ant, but it has no business in the beer. If
enough bops are used there is no necessity
Strychnine and picric acid were not found
in the samples analyzed, though they are
sometime used to increase tbe bitterness
and the profits.
Tobacco ana opium care oeen usea to I
adulterate beer, ut prohablv not very frej
quently. No traces of either were found in
these analyses. No living .bacteria were de
tected, and it is a pleasure to find these om
nipresent organisms absent from something.
To drpp to slang literally there are no
flies on beer.
There were indication in some samples of
there having been carbonate of soda added
to the beer to neutralize the acid and in
crease the foam. This, of course, is not in
jurious to the drinker; nevertheless the
drinker feels himself injured, for when he
gets a thimbleful of beer buried under a
glassful of froth, he thinks, and rightly,
that the dispenser is making undue money
off of him.
RESULT OF DEUfKINQ IMPURE BEEE.
In regard to the actual results of con
tinually drinking a beer containing the
impurities detected, the writer is aware that
many a stout and healthy individual will
argue thus: "I have been drinking beer all
my life and I am a sound man to-day; so it
can't be adulterated so awfully much."
But this individual must remember these
three things: That there are exceptions to
rules; that the effect of adulterated beer
may yet tell on him (if he drinks much ot
the adulterated brands), and, lastly, that
be is probably not so healthy a man as he
thinks he is. Certain it is that every
practicing physician has constantly under
his care one or more victims of impure
Again, as each individual beer drinker
hears a reference to adulterated beer, he will
say: "Oh! yes. there is lots of impure beer
on the market. You ought to drink only
the so-and-o brand: it is the only pure
article." AVe should answer "Don't be too
sure about that."
A VEET FAIE SHOWING.
In reference to the above analysis it
should be stated that no one sample of beer
contained more than three of the four im
purities found, and of the fifteen samples no
impurities at all were detected in ten sam
ples. This is a showing of 33J4 per cent of
impure beer on the market. This percent
age is, however, but little, if any worse,
than is the case with the majority! manu
factured articles of food and drink." All
kinds of such products are more or less
The present article must not be considered
as a polemic against the brewers in general,
for, as I have said, their products arc no
worse than those of other manufacturers,
and it must be said for them that the more
responsible ones, some of whom have been
spoken to in regard to this matter, are aware
of the prevalent adulteration . of beer, and
deplore it. They know that it is done and
they know how to do it, but refrain from
the nefarious practices themselves, as a mat
ter of principle, though they could im
mensely increase their profits if they should
yield to greed. The writer has talked with
come of the best brewers in the country and
they all agree that a stop of some kind
should be put to the .
going on in many local and distant brew
eries; they cay it is damaging the honest
brewer who brews with an eye only to the
legitimate profits of his business. It is well
that there are a few of these hontst fellows,
for if all the beer sold was asbad as some of
the bamples analyzed, the future ot our peo
ple would be appalling to consider.
This Suggests the only immediate rem
edy the only thing the beer-drinker can
do to lessen the risk of detriment to his
health from impure beer that is, "don't
confine your potations to any one brand of
beer, but let them be of as many different
brands as possible." As about 33J per
cent of all beer supplied to the Pittsburg
consumer is adulterated, by a conglomera
tion of beers you will get two glasses of
the pure article for one of the imnure. That
is two to one in your'lavor and is the best
you can do under the circumstances.

That the success of a town is dependent
upon the relative size and importance of its
industries and likewise upon its location
and advantages. "Without enterprises of
moment to support its population, general
business languishes; without public im
provements people prefer to live elsesrhere.
The presence of both these elements prom
ises success and the rapid sale of one hun
dred and fifty lots, on which buildings are
in course of erection, confirms the prophecy.
THE "WESTINGHOUSE AIE-BEAKB
"WORKS, located in the town, is the ost
phenomenally successful manufacturing en
terprise in the country, and its army of
workmen, with their families, would, alone
constitute a thriving community.
The various public improvements at Wil
merding are being pushed along as speedily
as possible, including the laying- of the
street mains through which the town will
be abundantly supplied with pure water.
Substantial plank sidewalks, sewers and
natural gas add to the public comfort.
Double-sized lots at all prices. For choice
locations apply at once to the
