Henry Rundle, occupiers of nii!'s near that town, were convicted of mixing their flour with white chilia clay, which it was proved 1}ley ground down for the purpose, and were fined 10l. cach. Upwards of a ton of this clay was found in one room in the mill, besides 12 bags of flour, adititerated with it. It is ascertained that, within the last two years, upwards of 200 tons of clay have been vended to the public, mixed with flour, and certainly nothing could be better calculated for their purpose; for whom properly dried and pulverized, it equals in appearance the finest hair-powder, is quite soft to the touch, and not in the smallest degree gritty; neither has it any ill taste, but on the contrary improves the appearance of the flour with which it is mixed. Finding the imposition pass so readily, they gradually increased the quantity which they mixed with the flour they sold, until at length—one-fifth, and sometimes one-fourth of the whole was clay.
