Excerpt from A Practical Treatise on the Manufacture of Starch, Glucose, Starch-Sugar and Dextrine: Based on the German of Ladislaus Von Wagner, Professor in the Royal Technical High School, Buda-Pest, Hungary, and Other Authorities The sudden and unexpected death of Julius Frankel, while this volume was passing through the press, renders it proper that some tice should be made of him in this place. Mr. Frankel was born at Hildesheim, Haver, Germany, August 26, 1831; was educated under the eminent Dr. Karl Karmarsch, at the Polytechnic School in the city of Haver; came to the United States in 1850, and died in Philadelphia, April 28, 1881. He was a learned, an industrious, and an amiable man, thoroughly versed in several languages, and a good technical scholar, who was well acquainted with the literature of this special branch of kwledge. It need hardly be said that such a man was of incalculable value to an industrial publishing house. He had done other and good work for us, was thoroughly appreciated by us, as well personally as professionally, and we had looked forward with satisfaction to his future usefulness to us. Our relations were so far agreeable to him that they seemed to infuse into him new life, energy, and hope, when, unhappily, he was suddenly stricken by the disease which in a few days brought to an end his useful career. To us his loss is very great; to his family it is indeed overwhelming and irreparable. It affords us a melancholy satisfaction to pay this slight tribute to his worth. The volume w presented to American readers, is upon a class of industries which has been surrounded by more mystery than probably any others of recent years. This has been so studied and persistent that t only has access to factories been barred to all but workmen, but even the inventors and manufacturers of the necessary machinery have refused to furnish drawings of the machines.
