The editor of ‘ The Paper Makers’ Circular’ assures us that the new epoch on which we are entering will surely be known as “ the age of pulp.” Beyond esparto grass, straw and wood, few fibrous substances have as yet practically taken the place once occupied exclusively by rags; but if we should ever exhaust the sources from which we now obtain our supplies there will assuredly be no lack of substitutes. East Indian ramie, pineapple fibres, bamboo, bagape (the refuse matter from sugar canes), peat, bracken or common fern, flags, rushes, seaweed, tan and hop stalks, have all been proved capable of yielding pulp. In Scotland hollyhock stems have been made into paper ; in Ireland the mallow, red clover, hop vine, and yellow water iris have been turned to the same use. In Demerara good paper has been made from the plantain. In France a patent has been granted for making paper out of leaves which have been cut, pressed into cakes, and reduced to pulp by being steeped in lime water. Clearly our paper mills have plenty of material in reserve.— ‘ Daily News.’ A Pennsylvanian legislator has asked his brother legislators to declare that any man who treats another with intoxicating liquor is guilty of a penal offence.
