Health Officer Woodward Inaug

Health Officer Woodward has instituted
a mild type of reform in the system govern
ing the dispensing of medicines to the
poor. It will be more economical to the
District, aud will likewise, to somo ex
tent, lessen the labors of the physicians
in the department and prove to be a con
venience to the beneficiaries, but will in
some degree decrease the revenues of the
druggists to the poor.
The plan adopted by Dr. Woodward is
the purchasing of all the standard medi
cines, in triturate (or tablet) form, direct
from Uiemanufacturlngpharmacists. These
medicines he will keep in 6tock, and they
wilt besupplird to the phyblcl ans as needed,
put up in convenient pocket cases.
When called upon to treat a case, the
physician, instead of writing a perscriptlon
and sending it on to the druggist to bo
filled, will deliver the medicines at once,
thus saving time in important cases, and
avoiding the necessity of having the pre
scription carried several squares, as in
some cases would have to be done, to have
it put up by the druggist for that sanitary
TENTATIVE AT PRESENT.
It is not intended nor desired by Dr.
Woodward that this new scheme shall
entirely supersede the old system, but he
will make a trial of it to test Its utility
and economy. He ordered but six of the
medicine cases, and these will be placed
immediately in six of the divisions for
Comparing the cost of the old and the
new syhtems, Dr. Woodward yesterday
cited the following items: He purchased
1,000 doses of calomel triturates, one
half grain in weight, which equal the same
number of prehcrlptions covering that
remedy. The aggregate cost was 40 cents.
The cost of having that amount of calomel
supplied by a drug store upon individual
prescriptions would be about $18. The
same ratio of cost will apply to other
For example, the cost of sulphate of
quinine disiensed by the physician will
be $1.35 for 1,000 dofees. At 15 cents
per perscription, covering eight doses on
an average, the rate allowed by law, the
druggist -would charge $18.75. Sulphate
of strychnine, of one-sixtieth of a grain,
costs the health office 40 cents; dis
pensed through the druggists, at the pre
scription rales above given, the cost
would be the same as in the other cases,
and so of pills in triturate form and all
other remedies usual in the treatment of
the climatic disorders incident to this
It is an innovation that will essentially
amount to a revolution If carried to its pos
INSPECTOR OP GARBAGE PLANTS.
CommTssioners Truesdell and Powell, in
company with Health Officer Woodward,
will leave this morning for Wilmington and
Philadelphia to inspect the several plants
established in those cities for the disposal
This action is taken for several reasons,
but particularly on account of the urgent
jiecessity for an early bolution of the local
problem. It is necessary that some system
be adopted soon, in order that the garbage
contractor may have time to erect a plant,
and have it in operation by November 1,
the date upon which the five-years' con
tract goes into effect..
Mr. Warfield and Mr. Bayly, his local
agent, were at the District building yes
terday, and bad a brief conference with Dr.
Woodward. Sir. Warfield realizes that
the time is rapidly passing away, and has
asked that the matter be settled as early
The Commissioners, on the other hand,
want to guard against the mistako of mak
ing a bad selection.
THEIR PERSONAL ATTENTION.
Thoy propose, however, to give the sub
ject their personal attention from this
time, and will leave nothing undone that
will haBten the selection and adoption of
a suitable method.
Inventor Anderson, of Chicago, had two
conferences with the board yesterday, with
a viev to having his system inspected. He
has made several propositions, but neither
has ben adopted, It is assured, how
ever, that when he gets his plant ready
for inspection, if ho is early enough, it
will get the required examination. Mr.
Anderson was accompanied by Attorney W.
BATHING BEACH FLOAT.
Tho superintendent of the bathing beach
reported to the Commissioners yesterday
that under tho order of July 24, 1895, the
new float has been completed and launched,
and that it is a great success.
"As tho season is now so far advanced,"
said Suporintendent Stevens, "and the hot
weather will be crowded into a few weeks,
tho building of the new houses within the
yard will not only interfere with the present
useofthebeach, but the crowd of boys would
interfere with the construction, and I recom
mend that tho work be deferred until spring."
Immediate repairs to some of the old
houses and other work, which he specifies,
the superintendent says should be im
mediately proceeded with. The cost, he
thinks, willnotexceed $100.
The report has the approval of the Com
missioners. In a brief conversation with a Times
reporter yesterday with reference to the
overhead system of telephone and tele
graph wires, a subjectdiscussed in yesterday
morning's Times, Commissioner Powell
called attention to a publication de
scriptive of the Boston condition.
The system of subways there shows
the enormous extent of the application
of electricity. The city maintains 220,
000 incandescent lamps and 0,600 arc
lamps, while the total amount of electrical
energy generated is equal to 28,000 horse
SUBWAYS IN BOSTON.
As staled in yesterday morning's Times,
11,200 miles of telephone wire has been al
ready placed under ground, and the total
of telegraph and telophone wires oper
ated by that method is 17,050 miles, re
quiring the construction of over 1,000,
000 feet or duct
The subways are built and owned by tho
operating companies, under the supervision
of a competent municipal officer, subject
to appeal to a municipal board, which in
cludes the city engineer.
The Commissioners are favorable to the
underground system for Washington, but
until Congress shall see proper to legislate,
as heretofore Btated in The Times, there
is no authority for requiring the com
panies to abandon the poles, and there will
be conseqnenlty no effort made in that
direction by the municipal government.

The annual report of the superintendent
or parking, which hears the date July 18,
was handed to the Commissioners yester
day. Itshows that 1,040 trees were planted,
on the streets during the year, an Increaseof
950 over the previous year. About 7,000
seedlings weresetout in thenureery, uearly
all being in excellent condition.
There is a large amount of the work of
trimming yet to be clone to complete it to
the place where It was begun two years
The entire number of trees, the super
intendent says, should receive some atten
tion yearly In the way of trimming and
removing the dead wood, which is not pos
sible with an appropriation of $15,000
and 75.000 trees requiring attention.
TREES CROWDING EACH OTHER.
A number of trees crowd each other at
the corners of intersecting streets, and
others stand m riobe to street lamps as
to seriously interfere with the dissemina
tion of light.
The superintendent recommends the re
moval of every box elder tree from the
streets and the substitution of a differ
Five thousand two hundred and seventy
six trees were wired during the year.
With $5,000 a large proportion of un
wired trees could be protected. The total
number of trees now wired is 31,700.
The number of new tree boxes made and
used was 1.S00. The police department
made report of 438 casualties which
were given immediate atteutiou.
The catterplllars that appeared upon
the trees have been removed, leaving no
trace, except upon inferior Negundos.
Tneso pests, he says, usually appear in
June, when the funds of the commission
are about exhausted.
The estimates made for 1897 arc: For
purchase of wire and wiring trees, $5,
000; emergency fund, $3,500; trimming
and general care of trees, $12,0 00;
planting, $0,000; repairs to tools, pur
chase of lumber aud other incidentals,
$3,500; to commence the improvement of
the thirty-sis reservations under District
The commissioner says these estimates
are positively necessary for the work in
hand, aud are tho same as were sub
mitted last year except the sum of $3,500
to be used as an emergency fund.
It is generally admitted, Mr. Lauhorn
says, that the presence of the trees on
the streets ha& enhauced the value of
property in the last decade at least 25
per cent, aud they cannot be properly
cared for without funds.
NOT TO ENTER HIS HOUSE.
Temporury nentrninliiK Order A gainst
On the application of Henry Schneider,
the architect, Judge Cole granted a tem
porary restraining order yesterday against
Thomas RupjTort, enjoining him from taking
possession of or entering his own home,
just being completed by the builder, until
the latter receives the final payment of
$985 on it, together with $80 wages for
Schneider contracted to build Ruppcrt's
house for $6,185, the house to be ready
for occupancy on August 1, at which time
the building was supposed to be completed,
save the placing of mantels and the fur
nace. The builder was given until August
7 to put them in.
The money has all been paid excepting
$985, which Mr. Ruppert refuses to pay,
on the ground that the work was not done
In the specified time, though lie is al
ready beginning to fit the house with car
pets, the complainant says.
Mr. Schneider admits that he lias not
tho work completed, but gives as tho
reason that he lost twelve days and three
distinct intervals because the owner of
the house was enjoined on as many occa
sions from continuation of building by
the father of a sick girl who lived next
door. He therefore claims that twelve
days should be added to the time limit in
which the building should havo been done,
and asks that the owner be restrained from
entering the house until payment In full

James Wellington, a butcher, residing on
Foxhall road, is at the Emergency Hospital
suffering from severe hemorrhages of the

"Willingham's case ia ono of the rarest ever
before them or that ever they heard of.
Tho butcher was in his stall in the Center
Market, Tuesday afternoon, when his nose
began to bleed profusely. In vain he at
tempted to stop the copious flow aud finally
went to the Emergency Hospital.
Tho entire staff of surgeons endeavored to
stop tho hemorrhage, but not until late at
night, did the flow become less. By that
time the patient had to be placed in bed,
so weak washe from the loss of blood.
Early yesterday morning the bleeding be
gan again and Willingham was nearly
stranglod by tho fluid running from the
nasal cavity into tho throat.
Drs. Smith, Shortlidge and Furlong tried
every known means to atop the flow, but
in spite ofplugs.drugsandinternal treatment

The manifold advantages of
tho modern system of furnishing
a house on credit nro so evident
as to scarcely require any com
ment, and yet many people seetn
to bo elthor unawaro of tho sys
tem or olso fail to avail them
solves of tho opportunity.
Tho old crde of morals that our
forefathers used to endeavor to
Inculcate Into their children
about novor buying thingu until
you can pay for thom, and novor
running Into debt, eta, wore
vory good and woll suited to
thoir time, but not at all suited
to the modern ora of financing,
when all business is run on a
credit systom of some kind.
Wo aro only surprised that
tho advantages of credit should
for so long havo only been per
mitted to tho merchant and
storekeeper. We wonder that
tho public in general didn't Insist
upon having tho samo privileges.
Tho storekeeper gets time on all
tho goods ho buys, and his stock
is no security because ho gener
ally sells a greater part of the
goods before tho payment for
them is duo. The householder,
on the contrary, always has tho
goods and tho depreciation in
valuo is only slight, so that ho
suroly should bo entitled to a3
much credit as tho storekeeper.
For young married couples
Just starting housekeeping tho
system is a great boon, becauso
it ouables thom to livo In a com
fortably furnished houso and
have every convenience which
thoy can pay for at their leisure,
instead of cramping and stinting
themsolves in tho old way. It is
practically starting thom oat
with a nicelittle capital.
It also makes it possible for a
roung man to marry and give
his wife as good a home as she
has been used to, whon without
it ho would havo to wait, possibly
for years, till ho had saved
onough money to buy tho furni
ture Look at it in another light
You pay rent for your houso
and all you get for your money
is tho use of tho hcuse. By this
systom you aro really only pay
ing rent for your furniture, but
It becomes yours af tor a certain
timo, Even If by any accident
or change of circumstances you
aro unable to continuo the pay
ments until tho furnituro bo
comes yours, you aro nothing
out; you simply rented a fur
nished houso, furnished with
handsome now furnituro instead
of bocond-hand things that Is
alL Whatever way you look at
