There has been some outcry lately against the eating of ices. Hands have been thrown up in astonishment because certain ice cream has been found to contain certain adulterations, and not infrequently the deadly ptomaine.

A sneer has become habitual with many when speaking of the Americans; and the American fondness for ice water and iced confections has passed into a proverb.
