Thc family medicine chest, even
when stocked by thc advice of a com
petent physician, is a standing dan
ger in a household in which the head
has little judgment or skill in the usc
of drugs. We will therefore, if you
please, eliminate so called medicines,
mineral or vegetable, from the discus
sion of our subject. In all disorders
indicated by symptoms more or less
doubtful to the mother's eye, pru
dence indicates but one course-ap
peal to the family physician.
When a child falls and raises a
lump upon his head, or bruises the
eofter portion of his body, or makes
bis nose bleed; wheo he cuts his hu
ger or arm or leg; when he is burned
or soalded, or gets a fragment of food
crosswise in his throat; when he runs
a splinter into tho tender flesh, or
treads upon a nail-it is imperative
to quote the lad who recited thc ten
commandments when a squall struck
the sailboat-"that something should
bc done, and that quickly!" The
knowledge and skill that enable the
mother to do this "something" in
the right way and in the nick of time,
is'what I mean to express by thc term

head, thc bruise upon tho softer

fortably upon tho injured spot, re
newing it, as it cool?, until thc pain
subsides. A little extract of witch
hazel tends to relievo thc pain. It
was an old-fashioned fallacy which
led tho mother to keep a ohild awake
by coaxing or commands if ho show

can be done for him is to allow him to
sleep. If excessivo drowsiness super

Fifty Women as Ills lirides.
New York, August 28.- Accor
ding to the statements of thc police
today Dr. George A. Whitzhoff, the
man who is known to havo married
at least 50 women and who may have
lcd double this number to the alter,
gave drugs to at least one of his wives.
This woman is Miss Kita Kandall,
of Huston, who married Witzhoff in
1U03, who believed in him until six
months later, when he robbed and
deserted her. A bench warrant is
out for Witzhoff'a arrest, aud it is
reported that he will bc apprehended
in a few hours. lleportcrs today
located Miss Lora Dorf, who was one
of thc women Witzhoff robbed and
afterward deserted. Miss Dorf is
very bitter against Witzhoff, and
sinoo his desertion of her has looked
into his rcoord.
"I want to say chat this man, in
?DOO, just five years ago, married
seven women in one week," she
declared. "I have looked this up and
I know of what I speak. Ile married
a different woman every uight of
that week, and after robbing them,
"At that time he was supposed to
live in Long Island City. The police
sent out a description of him and
tried in every way to land him but
".The man went to dances on the
Upper Kast Side, and there he was so
polished, so considerate to women and
such a gentleman, to all appearance,
that he found little difficulty in in
gratiating himself wherever he ap
"During this week of marrying he
used tho namo of Johnson. Munson
and Kdward Watson. The records of
tho board of health will show that he
was married to three different women
under these names tho week of which
I speak. In every case he got the
woman's money and jewelry, as he did
mine and then disappeared."
Witzhoff robbed Mr. Whitman, of
the Broadway Exchange Building,
out of $150 the week he was doing
all this marrying. He also robbed
. Mr. Yokes, of 116 Alden street,
I West Orange; and a Mr. Jaokson,
. who was employed by the Edison
, Company. While ?he was marrying in
this way he waa employed at the Ed
ison factory, in New Jersey. There
he was a chemist.
He waa then living at Mr. Vokes'
home, in West Orange, he only robbed
him and left there when he found that
his many marriages and robberies
1 of women had gotten him into trouble.
"I cannot describo how polished
? this man was and how ho managed to
fascinate women. He seemed to have
a power over every woman that came

Mr. Ansel and The Dispensary.
To thc Kditor of Thc News and
Courier: I have received many in
(juiries as to my views of the liquor
question in South Carolina, and the
hest way of dealing with that all
absorbing question, dispensary or no
dispensary, and I take this means of
Hating my position.
In thc tirst place, 1 am opposed to
thc system of a State dispensary. I
once thought it was the best solution
of the liquor question, because I
thought it would minimize and de
crcasu the sale of liquors in this
State, but when we consider that
more than three million dollars'
worth of whiskey has been sold by
the various dispensaries of the State
the past year, my hopes have been
disappointed, and it appears to me
that some other method should be
IQ the second place, I am in favor |
of local county option, as between
prohibition and county dispensaries;
that is, I am in favor of any county
in the State voting upon the question
as to whether they wish prohibition
for that county, or whether they wish
county dispensaries. If a majority of
the qualified voters o?' the county de
sire prohibition for that particular
county, then I am one who believes
that they should have it, and I fur- I
ther believe that tire good people of J
such county will see to it th*t the
prohibition Jaw is enforced.
If the vote of any county should be I
in favor of the sale of liquor in that
particular county, then I favor a law
providing for a county dispensary,
with a board ?of control of three mern-1
hers to be appointed by the Governor I
of the State, which county board shall
have control, of tho purchase of j
liquors for the county dispensaries, I
the appointment of dispensers, fixing
their salaries, etc.; all sales to be
made under the rules and regulations j
of the present dispensary law, with
such other and further restrictions as
may be thought wise by the Legisla- J
I am opposed to beer dispensaries, j
as I think that beer when sold at all
should be sold in ?be regular county J
I favor a stringent law against the
unlawful sale of liquor. My ixpe- I
riences of twelve years as one of thc j
solicitors of this State has convinced I
mo that, whatevor system may he I
adopted^ that unlawful sales will be j
made by somo. It is, therefore, neces-1
sary that stringent laws should be
passed to punish the "blind tiger,"
those wbo sell unlawfully.
Make it the duly of all the sheriffs,
deputy sheriffs, magistrates, consta- j
bles, policemen and town marshals to I
see that the law against the unlawful I
salo of liquor is rigidly enforced in
their coumien, cities and towns, and
it might be well to give them half of
the fines that are collected from those
convicted through the agency of
such officers of tho offense of unL*
ful Bales, transportation or making
The county boards of control
should be required to make a report
to the presiding judge at eaoh term
of thc Court of General Sessions for
their respective counties, showing
the purchases made, the amount of
sales by thc county dispensaries and
of aii their acts i's such county
board of control, and should be lia
ble criminally for any violation of the
law, rules and regulations of the dis
I am opposed to the high license
system; it.is too near the old barroom
system, and would not decrease the
sales of liquor, whatever the restric
tions might be, but would inotease
them. The man who pays the high
license would want to make all the
profit he could, and hence, the more
sal?*, the more profits.
Personally I would like to see no
liquor sold in this State aa a beverage,
1 but it is a condition which confronts
us, and the question is how best to
deal with that condition. There is
no law that can be passed that will
keep some people from drinking
liquor, at:!] I believe it to be the duty
of the State to pass such laws as will
minimize the use of liquor as much as
This is a brief outline of my views
upon tho liquor question?

COWING A JANITOR.
(\ Case of Disciplining and the Way lt
One day Wilkinson got mad and
dote? mined to discipline thc janitor.
"Why is it," lie said, "that every
time anybody in this building loses
anything you ask us if we know
what has become of it?"
"Because," the janitor replied,
"you are the only folks that never
lose anything/' >
The next morning nrrived.

Wilkinson shouted down the dumb
waiter shaft. "Where is it?"
"I don't know, sir." the janitor

Wilkinson was bewildered. "Now,
where on earth did the fellow get
it?" he said.
"He hos taken it from one of the
neighbors," wailed Mrs. Wilkinson.
"We will be jailed before we get
through, with this business."
The next day Wilkinson com
plained o? the loss of a package of
sugar, which, though purely imagi
nary, so far as the Wilkinsons were
concerned, very soon materialized in
the hands of the resourceful janitor.
Even Wilkinson got uneasy then;
but, being bent on vengeance, he
subsequently reported as lost three
loaves of bread, a head of lettuce
and a bag of potatoes, all of which
were immediately produced by the
janitor. Before further depreda
tions on the part of that worthy s
were possible Wilkinson paid his
grocery bill for the month. When
ne came home Mrs. Wilkinson, who
is a systematic housekeeper, care
fully scanned the itemized account.
"Why, they have made a mis
take," che said. ''They have charged
us for milk fjid sugar and things we
never got. You must go right back
