During the past summer my attention was called to a peculiar abnormal condition which the bread baked in the house underwent a few days after baking. About the same time complaints were made by a number of residents of the town regarding the same trouble. A number of inquiries were also noticed in the magazines, devoted to the household, indicating the trouble was present in other localities. Inquiry among neighboring housekeepers showed that while most of them had never heard of such a trouble with bread, a number of them had seen the condition or known of someone who had at some time been troubled.
