I lopliyl is neither bitter nor poisonous.'; ] i he lieu*, changes the color of the «hl ro phyl globules, as tile process ofctndntiou | goes un in the curing proce-s, bit! not a particle of poisonous matter is evolved during the euiuig. See list of sub stances forming theeonstituents of the tobacco plant hereafter enumerated. There is a very .small percentage of nitrogen in sellow tobacco cured ou the stalk as demonstrated by analysis less than one-half of ono percent., 15-100 actual according to Dr. Veelcker. The | ! stalls contains wui less, 44-100 of one ! percent, of nitrogen. Wo therefore as sert, without the fear of successful con- j tiadiction, that ammonia, generated from so small a percentage of nitrogen iu the leaves ui>d stalks of tobajco cured ; on the stalk, is too small to sensibly at- 1 feet tlie taste or autcll of iho leaf. To suiu up the matter, then, we litid there is no poison in the chloroybyl or ' potash, acctio acid or aiiiiiinuia loading up the lj;if cured alouj with tho stalk, ; ' aud that th" stalk contains no substance '•foreign Io the leaf possessing -an aer 1 pun„."ut flavor ' " 1 liright yellow tobacco :oiitaius the 1 tollowing: Liuie mngnesia, oxide of iron, 1 potash, chloride of sodium, phosphoric ' acid, sulphuiic acid, soluble .silica und 1 carbonic acid. t Dr- A'oclcker says.
