The most offensive of all adulterations is found in these savory morsels. Horseflesh, diseased animals, and odds and ends of every description, find their way into the tempting guise of "sausages." To escape from this evil, make your own sausages, by the aid of the sausage machine, which will enable you to add many savory morsels to the attraction of your table. The same thing may be used for chopping vegetables, which it will do to such perfection that they will perfectly dissolve in soups and stews, and afford most delicious i ade dishes. And in this, as in the grinding of wheat, you will soon save the cost of the machine.

Tea is adulterated with leaves of the sycamore, horse chestnut, and plum; with lie tea, which is made up of tea dust, sand and gum, to give it consistency; also with leaves of the beech, bastard plane, elm, poplar, willow, fancy oak, hawthorn, and sloe. It is coloured with black lead, rose pink, Dutch pink, vegetable red and yellow dyes, arsenite of copper, chromate and bichromate of potash. Green teas are more adulterated than black. They are coloured with Prussian blue, turmeric, Chinese yellow, etc., flavoured with sulphate of iron, catechu gum, la veno beno, and Chinese botanical powder. Tea-leaves that have been once used are collected, "doctored," and again sold as fresh tea. Obtain some genuine leaves of tea, moisten them, and lay them out with gum upon paper. Press them between the leaves of books until dry. When you suspect a sample of tea, damp and unroll the leaves, and gum and dry them asgenuine ones,- you will then be able by comparison to detect the admixture.
