Mr. Ed. S. Morris places on our table some samples of palm oil soap, made, as we understand, in Philadelphia, from the crude oil of Elaeis guineensis, sent from the Colony of Liberia. We placed the soap in the hands of an expert in these matters, who reports it of singular excellence, and also remarks that it is a "superior teeth cleaner." Mr. Morris has earned a world-wide reputation as the discoverer and introducer of the Liberian coffee, and we wish him every success in his new palm oil soap enterprise.
