WOMAN'S CURE FOR DRUG HABIT
Dr. Margaret S. Hal leek of the New
York State reformatory for women
reports in the Medical Record ber suc
cess in treatiuvictims of the mor
phine habit in cases where she cut off
the drug at once. Not long ago medi
cine taught that the morphine habit
most be broken off by degrees and
that the cure was always attended
with untold suffering, and current
text books still teach that severe
symptoms will follow the audden
withdrawal of the drug.
The first case Dr. Halleck treated
was an American girl. 24 years old,
who said she had contracted the habit
while under a doctor's care for a
broken leg. The patient was taking
six to ten grains of morphine daily
besides smoking a dollar's worth of
crude opium. On the day that she
was deprived of the drug she was; seiz
ed with much pain. Her pupils were
dilated, she vomited, was extremely
nervous and said that she ached all
over. The doctor administered one
sixteenth of a grain of strychnine sul
phide, one two hundredths of a grain
byoseine hydrobromate and one fourth
of a grain of codeine sulphate. This
is the prescription she used in other
cases, except that sometimes she
doubled the quantity of byoscue
Next morning the patient reported
that she had not slept well, but vom
iting bad ceased and she was free from
pain. The same dose was administer
ed morning and evening for a week.
At the end of that time the patient
left ber room and did light house
work. She was still somewhat ner
vous, but her pains were gone and her
appetite was good. Strychnine in
quantities of one sixteenth to one
thirtieth of a grain was continued
for a week and then all treatment was
stopped. In six months she gained
thirty pounds. She has been out of
the reformatory now for eight months
and has not rleapsed.
The second case was a German girl,
23 years old. who when she was 15
years old, was induced by an older
girl to go and live in Chinatown. She
learned to smoke opium and used it
daily for eight years. When she came
under the doctor's care she was smok
ing from tl to SI. 50 worth of opium a
day. She was emanciated. her pulse
was slow, she had no appetite and she
was subject to muscular tremons. She
received the same treatment as the
first patient for four days and the
strychnine was continued for v while.
Her weight went from 109 to 142
pound. She is. Dr. Halleck reports
a good member of society.
An American girl. 31 years old. who
had used morphine in iaMasjaatag doses
for ten years, was the third pat ient .
Today she is the picture of health and
weighs 190 pounds. She says she lias
no desire for morphine, her feeling is
rather an aversion. .
The fourth was a girl of 24. who
had taken morphine hypodermically
for seven years. Her daily dose be
ug from fifty to sixty grains: in ad
dition she took cocaine. She entered
Bellevne three times to be cured of
ber habit, but relapsed each time.
She weighed only ninety pounds and
her body was covered with lesions,
left by the hypodermic. After ten
days' treatment she received no more
medicine. She gained over twenty
pounds in six weeks.
None of these patients received any
morphine from the time the treatment
was begun and each professes to have
lost all craving for it. Dr. Halleck
says the combination of strychnine,
byoecine and codeine forms a perfect
The die is cast. Preacott is to ad
vance one notch in the scale of muni
Cities like persons have periods of
growth and these periods are charac
terized by certain activities or all ab
sorbing topics of interest.
The voters of Preacott have wisely
decided to advance this beautiful, and
in many respects ideal, mountain city
in the scale of American cities and
have manfully shouldered the burdens
of a bond issue to begin the work.
To the voter and tax payer belong the
double credit of desiring this munici
pal improvement and the more real
effect of paying for it. Municipal
improvements like all other is born of
necessity. The prime force in the
present move, and Prescott is on the
move in a new sense, is Prescott 's in
adequate, incomplete, outgrown sewer
system. This system which has cost
the city a neat sum is good as far as it
gues, but it does not go to one half
the residences and only about one and
one half miles from the court house.
It is like a tree without roots or
branches. It it too short at both
ends. It ends within a few feet of a
well traveled public highway, one of
the principal drives from the city,
ends in a dry run and crosses and re-
crosses the public thoroughfare. That
this method of disposal is crude, 1
careless, repulsive, dangerous and
nothing short of criminal is only stat
ing the truth mildly.
Prescott has been, and ever will be,
to a certain extent, the haven of the
sick and afflicted, and because of Its
salubrious climate will always be the
home of the consumptive for a large
part of the year. Epidemics of ty
phoid and similar diseases will occur,
as they have in the past, until such
rigid and effective sanitary measures
are taken as will remove their oauses
and prevent contagion. With these
disagreeable but stern, uncompromis
ing facts m view, and others that will
j come to the mind of anyone who is
acquainted with the recent past, and
Prescott's health reports, it is not
strange that the taxpayer and public
spirited citizen have risen to the occa
sion and furnished the means and
now demand that a speedv. effective
and economical means of disposing of
this peculiarly dangerous and object
If the subject needed any more elab
oration to arouse the dullest intellect
and win the strongest opponent of ex
penditure, the imagination might
start with the fact that during the dry
hot days of the long summer the end
of the sewer is the drinking place, and
sometimes the only available drinking
place of herds of milcb cows, which
furnish a part of the supply for the
city, and this milk, uninspected, is
peddled from bouse to house for family
This then is the present situation;
Prescott has a peculiarly dangerous
and repulsive sewage; this must be
disposed of; the public is aware of it;
the community, and especially the
military authorities, both of which
have been long suffering and patient,
demand the removal of the present
nuisance; the tax payer has burdened
himself with a bond issue to this end;
and now in view of these facts and
conditions the community at large,
each citizen, every tax Yiayer. the wel
fare of the city and community, and
the military authorities at the post
and Washington are waiting to see
what action the city council will t:ikt
to abate this nuisance and remove this
danger spot. It now devovlee on this
body, into whose bands has been
placed the interests of the community,
and what is more binding, the express
will of voters at the polls and the
means to carry it into effect, to devise
a plan that will purify this sewage and
dispose of it so that it will "lose
permanently its power for evil."
How this can best and most econom
ically be done is the question to be
solved. It is now up to the authori
ties, the mayor and council, to decide
upon a means of sewage disposal 86

ments and be adequate to keep up
with the growth of the city, a well de
fined plan, based on scientific prin
ciples, hacked by successful experience
and in accord with the best and most
economical practice of sanitary engi
neering. In another issue several of the best
methods of treatment and disposal
will lie discussed and compared.
The election for a high school has
been called for Saturday, May 9, and
it is up to those entitled to vote at
the election to say whether Prescott
shall have a high school or not. The
importance to the town of such an
institution must be apparent to every
one, and the coat of it will be so
small as not to be notioeahle. The fa
vor with which the proposition was
met was shown in the circulation of
the petition asking for calling an
election, as the party circulating it
was not met with a single refusal. In
fact no opposition has been heard
from any source and the proposition
should be carried unanimously.

ores of the value of 884 per ton. The
width of the vein is about three feet.
Had the tunnel been run in on the
vein from the base of tbe mountain
it would have gained a foot in depth
for each foot run and would have
given a perpendicular depth where
tbe work has been done of fully 500
feet. The advantage of that kind of
mining where a tunnel can be run on
the vein is that tbe ledge is prospect
ed as you drive the tunnel. The value
of every foot of ground driven through
is known. A tunnel run in on a vein
where depth is attained is a very
cneap and profitable way of opening
up a mine. This is a very desirable

of this property.
Passing around on tbe north side of
the mountain 2000 feet is the Ohio
mine. The development on this prop
erty consists of an open cut run on
the vein showing up a fair vein of
quartz nearly two and a Halt feet in
thickness, a very promising prospect.
About 1500 feet east of this you
come to the Indiana mine. This prop
erty has a cross cut tunnel run in the
mountain about 200 feet cutting the
vein at that point. A raise has been
made out to tbe surface 100 feet on
the vein. The vein is two and a half
to three feet in width of quartz with
some sulphides and hematite of iron.
There is some high grade ore found
n this vein. There is on tbe dump 50
or 60 tons of the average value of 118
to 20 per ton, mostly of free milling
ore. Below these openings, about 200
feet another cross cut tunnel has been
run in 450 feet to tap the ledge that
is opened up above. From the looks
of the face of this cross cut tunnel 1
should think tbe ledge is nearly 25
or 30 feet wide. This will cut the
vein fully 400 feet below the surface
which will prove its permanency and
extent of the ore body.

Who to have looked at Mrs. B. H.
Smith would have thought that her
fingers could keep the perfect time
for so many dances? But she did, and
tbe accompaniment was like the roll
of a drum, for the moving of an army.
Who that shook Earnest Emanuel's
band last night dreamed that those
nervous fingers wandering over the
strings of that violin would speak to
the heart in tones so immeasurably
sweet, or that J. C. Remington, L.
H. Tobey aud F. W. Keksie could so
thoroughly cburm you by the trill j
they executed on such crooked striped
horns. Ob. but they did. aud until
the greatest majesty that will ever set
its seal on our faces takes place these
same heart talks from these strings
and tongues will go on charming us.
At twelve o'clock the doors of the
supper room were thrown open and
then the road to all men's hearts was
filled so full of good things that I'll
bet every time they see Mrs. P. L
Kastner and her noble corps of help
ers they will feel the same thrill of
satisfaction they did after partaking
of that elegant menu. The table look
ed like tbe waving of bright ribbons
or the fluttering of gay colored
plumes, the flowers were so profuse.
To say the least it was the perfect set
ting to a solid comfort and so the
hours sped to the merry music and the
Fling out your folds Old Glory,
King out tbe merry song.
Hold high that flaming banner.
The knights are marching on,
Let plumes in nodding splendor,
Proclaim their courtly might.
Let deeds of noble daring
Out shine their armor bright.
Ring out the sweetest music.
Ring out the merriest song.
The purple knights are marching.
Are grandly marching on,
Shake out the folded banner.
Of red, white and blue.
And sound the loudest bugle.
For this knightly order true.
Fling wide the door and window.
And sound the clamorous gong.
And let the groaning tables
Proclaim the knights are come.
Let Lord and stately lady,
Throw wide the castle keep.
While knights of by gone ages
Protect them while they sleep.
Let bright lights softly beaming
On fair forms gently fall.
Let floors of polished smoothness.
In lay the lofty hall.
There as in days of glory
mp pointed toe and heel.
Ring out sweet throated vml.
And old Virginia Reel.
Let mirth the banquet christen,
Let goblet tankard bowl,
Lend love to bright eyed maiden.
Lend strength to knightly soul.
Ring loud the cheers of honor.
From polished floor to dome.
While soft lips murmur softly
And tbe band sobs, "Home, Sweet

company, is in town for a visit of sev
eral days. Mr. Erskine while not a
permanent re-ident of this section, is
by no means a stranger to Prescott

He was among tbe earliest pioneers
of Coconino county, having been con

Chief Engineer Kiugmau. which lo

now embraced in that county. Their
camp for a large portion of the time
j was where the town of Flagstaff now
0h 1 stands, out at tne time mere were tew
such I residents there except some Mormon-;
engaged in cutting ties for John W.
Young, son of Brigbam Young. A
few of these bad their families with
them. They purchased all their sup
plies from Prescott. from three to four
day3 being required to make the trip.
Mr. Erskine has for some years been
engaged in the life insurance business.
and made an enviable reputation in
that line of business as there are few
men engaged in it who understand it
more thoroughly than he. Represent
