ed in the House, are attempting to
stop the misuse of paregoric. Com-j
plaint has been received from vari-j

stores are selling as much as one
pint of the drug, which is being used
as a beverage for the alcohol j
contained in it. It is claimed that!
there is as much alcohol in an ounce !

quantity of opium; that the practice
is doing much to develop the "paregoric
