DRUG PRIOB8 TO SOAR
SAYS LOCAL DRUGGIST
Shortage In Peroxlds and Other Chem
Despite statements to the contrary
by the state board, local druggists
say the price of drugs Is now advanc
ing sharply and will In all probability
continue to advance. This Is espec
ially true of all drugs snd chemicals
of foreign manufacture.
Impending shortage In peroxide Is
causing druggists here to buy all they
can at present prices. Barium, which
comes only from England and Ger
many, is used In the manufacture of
peroxide. On' account of the fact
that 1^will, ignite, lf. lt beco|oos damP
or if water rfeaches It, only a very few
vessels, will carry It and then it is
loaded on the decks where It can be
quickly thrown overboard.
It Is pointed out that if the war
«nds soon and shipping is resumed,
congestion in freight houses will be
relieved by the shipping of all other
goods in preference to this chemical.
It would be practically impossible to
have it transported to this country
before winter, which means that no
shipments can be made before next
spring, on account of the fact that
it is destroyed by freezing.
Imported perfumes, citric acid, and
many other drugs and chemicals are
also rapidly advancing in price. Bar
ium has advanced 600 per cent during
the last month while citric acid has
Increased 200 per cent in that length

Funds for repairing this road and
for keeping it in condition are being
ralspd from three sources. The coun
ty supervisors have promised a cer
tain sum as has the city council of this
city. The remainder of the money
needed Is being raised among auto
mobile men of this city. The com
mittee that has been soliciting the
money here has met with a generous
response from automobile men and
from business houses where the value
of the road to the city Is realised.
It is hoped that enough money can
be secured that continuous care can
be given the road. One man could
be constantly employed looking after
the drive. By repairing the worst
places as soon as they develop, the
upkeep expense can be. greatly re
duced and the drive maintained con
stantly in good shape.

the large tent was taken, and by the
time the lecture began every avail
able seat and chair was occupied,
while large numbers remained stand
ing outside the tent. Although the
attendance was large, being conserv
atively estimated at between five and
six hundred, the order was perfect
and all gave marked attention to the
remarkable prophecy from the ninth
chapter of Revelation, concerning the
rise of the Ottoman empire. Thlri Is
one of the very few prophecies in ths
Bible that foretell an event to the
exact day of the month, and this
prophecy was mad* almost eighteen
hundred years before it cami to pass.
Two years before the Turks lost their
independence on the 11th day of ~ug
uet, 1840, the Lord unfolded this
prophecy to a faithful Methodist min
ister, who made it known to the world.
The great majority of people just
scoffed at the idea, but their scoffing
did not in the least hinder the fulfill

that this condition of affairs Is not

spoken of last night. The Bible
states just what the end of the "sick

It plainly tells of an event of tre

take place just at that time.
