In any event he will see that in the new
Sanitary Code, which Is now under prepa
ration, there will be a section which will
enable his department to bring summary ac
tion against the offenders without recourse
to the cumbersome provisions of the gen
eral pure-drug and pure-food law.
"I consider the showing outrageous," said
Doctor Lederle. "The strictest measures
must, be taken to have the evil stopped."
Phenacetine Is an antipyretic which has
grown into such common use to relieve
headaches and neuralgic pains as to be al
most known as a. household remedy. It Is
sold by all druggists over the counter with
out a prescription. Its price varies) accord
ing' to the whim of. the pharmacist, from 15
cents to 20 cents, for live to ten grain pow
ders. Its wholesale price Is II an ounce. It
is made in Germany, and one firm of Impor
ters has the monopoly of the United States.
It cornea In sealed packages.
Some time ago, according to the health
authorities, it became necessary tor the de
partment to have some absolutely pure
phenacetine for experimental purposes, and
a quantity was purchased at a store near
t iiie uuiuiriment uuiiuint;. Anaijan iiiuwru
! this to be impure and adulterated, and It
J was determined to Investigate. A corps of
. inspectors was sent out. and in a .few days
had visited 373 stores. They were of all de
grees, from some of the best known and
oldest established to those of the poorer
3uarters. The powders were submitted to
oseph A. Deghuee, chemist of the depart
ment. "Of the powders supposed to be phenace
tine given to me." reports Mr. Degnuee. "I
find that fifty-eight of them are composed
of the pure drug. Two hundred and sixty
seven of them are mixtures of phenacetine
and acetanllld, two of phenacetine and su
gar, four phenacetine and starch, thirty-two
pure acetanilld, four acetanilid and cane su
gar, one phenacetine and milk sugar, three
acetanilld and rtarch. one antlpyrlne and
one quinine sulphate."
"Acetanilld, which sells for about 25 cents
a pound," said Doctor Lederer. "is a heart
depressor, and as such becomes a positive
menace to the life of persons with abnormal
heart action, when taken in the five or ten
grain doses, which Is .the .usual quantity of
"Phenacetine is a household remedy for
headaches-and It is an outrage, I repeat, for
the public to be thus defrauded by unscru
pulous .druggists. The prices paid by the
inspectors for three ten-grain powders' of
-phenace'Jne -arlcd between 15 and 30 cents,
makln. fair average of 20 cents. If pure
phenacutlne Is sold at this rate, an ounce
wrai - l is soia ior .2v, maKing a1 pront
of. n.ue then 200 per cent. Such a profit,
however, does not appear to be .sufficient.
Acetanilid. costing about i cents an ounce,
is substituted and sold at the same price as

Commlasione's revelation, and some of the
men mentioned in the list declared them
selves entirely guiltless :of any dishonest
