to this place while in her early teens,
and after graduating from the Prince

THE PRINCETON UNION: THURSDAY, APRIL 20, 1916.
Advanced Prices Due to War.
The present high prices of drugs
and chemicals have never been equal
ed even during our own Civil War.
The following list shows some of
the more remarkable jumps in price,
comparing the prices of July, 1914,
at the time of the outbreak of the Eu
ropean War, with the high price
reached since then:
Potassium Bromide 1500
Carbolic Acid 1000
Potassium permanganate 700
Salicylic Acid 900
Experts now say that if the war
continues for another year many drugs
and chemicals will be absolutely un
obtainable by that time and their
places will have to be filled by others
possessing identical or similar prop
erties. A few drugs are unobtainable
There are many underlying reasons
for this state of affairs. All of the
vegetable and animal oils have risen
enormously because of the fact that
glycerin can be made from them and
the glycerin then converted into the
explosive nitrogylcerin or dynamite.
This is true especially of cod liver
oil, which is being taken by Germany
from Norwegian sources of supply.
Castor Oil comes from a seed prin
cipally grown in India, and Great Brit
ian, who controls the trade, has placed
an embargo upon the oil, it is said,
because it is one of the few oils for
The compounds of mercury, among
which are calomel, corrosive sublim
ate, gray powder, blue mass, blue
ointment, etc., are scarce because
mercury is used in making the com
pounds known as fulminates, indis
pensable for the caps used for explod
ing cartridges and shells.
Quinine still maintains its abnor
mally high price on account of the
high figures obtained at the recent
auction sale of cinchona bark, from
which quinine is made, held at Amster
dam, the world's center for this drug.
Glycerin is enormously high also
on account of its use in the manufac
ture of nitroglycerin.
Paris Green and other insecticides
are high in price on account of the
scarcity of the crude products from
which they are made. Licorice root
and stick licorice have risen to unheard
of figures, and are still going up, as
the Spanish and Italian sources of
supply are exhausted and the Rus
sian supply is not available because
of the closing of the Dardanelles.
Every time a pharmacist refills an
old prescription at its original price,
the chances are he is losing money.
There is no class of substances in
which the rise in price has been so
little felt by the consumer and large
ly equalized by the taking of smaller
profits, as in the case of drugs.
