The Soandalous Trioks of tlio Profession,

Hob tho rubllc.
St. Louis, Juno 19. Tho recent exposure
of tho tricks find swindles of tho rctnil
drug trndo in Philadelphia has moved
tho Post-Dispatch, of this city, to start
an investigation hero, nnd tho first hunt
for light on tho subject has been prolific of
"Tho physicians of St. Louis," said n
clork in a down-town drugstoro
to a Post-Dispatch reporter, "havo been
complaining for a long tiino of tho impurity
of tho drugs, and tho unreliable manner
in which tho drug business is conducted.
At tho request of a prominent
physician, a thorough investigation
of tho business was made, and
a dcplorablo condition of affairs discovered.
Thero arc about 200 drug stores in the city,
employing about 300 clerks at nn average
salary of 515 per month, and to bo furtlior
Btatistical and accurato it may be stated
that tho drug stores south of Chestnut
street and north of 'Washington avenue urj
principally conducted by Gcrmaus.
Tho law requires that
the roisox keqisteh
be kept for tho inspection of the co rone
etc.; but morphine, opium, laudanum and
other poisons aro commonly sold and no
record is kept. Jinny druggists have their
regular customers, who uso twenty-five to
fifty cents worth of morphino daily, and
theso sales of narcotics form no
portion of the month's receipts.
"Many drug-stores, too, are littlo better
than dram-shops and most of them sill intoxicating
liquors in any quantity desired.
Every keeps whisk', yet not
onco in a year is it ordered on a doctor's
"There is a widespread belief that druggists
aro classical scholars. This is a great
mistnko. Were tho prescription, with tho
directions, written in Latin, presented for
compounding, thero aro not fivo drug-stores
in tho city whoro it could bo filled. In
Groat Britain a classical education is required,
but not hero.
" But it is tho adulteration of drugs, of
vthich tho peoplo havo most reason
to complain. Those in most common
uso have "been selected for examination.
There aro two kinds of seidlotz powder
recognized by the trade, ' full weight'
and ' regular.' Tho full weight' seems to
be tho exception nnd not tho rule. Spirits
of camphor contained hii an average 25 per
cent, of water, 15 per cent, of which wui
clear profit. Essence of vanilla used fur ice
cream, cake, etc., did not contain any vanilla,
but was made fioin tonqua hcaus. a
poisonous substance. Glycerine was found
adulterated u it li 25 per cent, of water. Alcohol
contained from lf to 120 per cent, ot
water. Olive oil, it was found, had never
seen an olive, in fact was nothing but
oil. Laud-mum win commonly
not over one-half Mrcngth, tho adulterants
being alcohol and water. Sweet spirits of
nitre was anything but sweet, it was
strongly acid, and unli, for use. Arrowroot
wns found to be largely adulterated
with in fact somo specimens
contained nothing else. Lime water, a very
important medicine for tho summer complaints
of children, wns found to be very
weak j this was tho result of carelessness
either in making or in its not being
preserved. Quinino is usually
quite poor, but in several instances
cinchonidiuo is used in its place,
This substitution is tho more inexcusable,
ns quinino is at present very cheap, and
sold at the present rate, affords a profit of
from four to six hundred per cent. Bay
rum is commonly made from oil of bay, one
ounco of which makes two gallons of the
article sold in tho fdiops. An inferior article
of American soap is sold for imported
caBtile soap. A great majority of the soda-water
syrups oxaminod havo been found to
consist of syrup, flavored with artificial
essences. Theso essences aro mado from
various cthors, and if used to any great
extent aro poisonous. They aro mostly colored
with an line, and soap bark is added
to make them foam. Tho least injurious is
snrsaparilla syrup," which is flavored
with wintcrgrec , and colored with burned
sugar, but it contains no ftarsaparilla. Tho
essence, for flavoring pinuapplo is mado
from decayou chceso.
" Miiuy persons wore surprised when
advanced twenty-five por cent, at ono
bound. That was the result of a combination
by which each druggist bound himself
- to chargo a cortain price for each articlo ;
nnd deposit a note for twenty-five dollars,
as a forfeit in caso ho broko his word. By
this agreement articles liko Husband's
magnesia, that cost twenty-five cents, aro
sold for fifty cents, a vory handsome profit,
considering tho druggist has only to hand
" Considerable interest attaohos to tho
question of tho percentage paid by
certain druggists to certain physicians
for all prescriptions sent to their
stores. It is a difficult mattor to investigate,
for tho druggists aro to a
great extent afraid of tho doctors. Still
there seems to bo no doubt in spite of protestations
and denials, that the praotice
exists. Most of tho druggists profess a
5rofound ignoranco, others say they havo
leard that cortain druggists paid a percentage,
but refuse to montion names.
Thero are two so far as I know who havo
expressed themsolvcs freely on tho point.
Oho said ho found it necessary with two of
his physioians, otherwise ho could not
have thoir buiinoss. Ho deplored the
and on being asked if paying
A FER CENTJ.OH TO rilYSICIAKS
did not affoct his pocket, ho said,' Oh no i
I add the porcentage to the price of tho
xnediojnej the patcnt pays for. all." This
percentage varfes from 20 fo 60 per cent.
In the latter case the doctor always tells
tho patient that tho medicino is expensive,
and in this way all suspicion is
avoided. Tho other druggist said
ho belioved ho was justified in
obtaining business any way ho could ;
commissions for obtaining business were
commonly pnid in other lines, and why not
by druggists." " What clas. of physicians
do you usually pay percentage?'' ho was
asked and nnswercd, "only those whoso
offices arc in my neighborlioid and who do
a good practice." "But would you not get
a great portion of their business, even if
you did not pay them a percentage?"
"No; somo other druggist would mako
tho saino arrangement t hat I havo now.
Besides I gel four-fifths of their prnotieo,
nlthough most of their patients liyo at u
"Hoivdo tho doctors manago to send
you patients from a distances."
" Oh, thero nro various ways. Generally
Ihe doctor, on giving his prescription, tells
the patient thnt ho is vory particular tibout
tho medicine, and requests that it bo taken
to my store. If the patient objects, nnd
wishes to liavo tho medicino mado up by
Ids family druggist, tho doctor offers no
further objection, merely stating his want
of confidence in druggists in general. On
tho following visit tho doctor takes tho
medicino, osuniinos it, shakes his head,
nnd looks wise. This seldom fails ot tho
desired oiled, especially if the patient is
not improving. Besides, you know, I havo
no objection to the percentage, as it does
not come out of my pocket."
" Many druggists make presents to physicians
who scud them prescriptions. Ono
druggist estimates tiiat this item cost him
in the neighborhood of $500 per year,
mostly around Christmas; besides he always
furnished physicians medicino frco of
GREAT OIL COMBINATION.
A Syndicate 'Wmi $13,000,000 rupltnl
Nall to He Iiuylng All tho Oil Above
Philadelphia, June 10. Tho Times lias
information from Oil City, that besides tho
Standard Oil Company there is a syndicate
with .jlf).' 00,000 capital to mako a corner
in oil. It is n blind pool, compood originally
of New York, Pittsburg, and Chicago
capital, to which has sinco been added
another combination known as tho "Pipe
Line Syndicate." Win. Kiddle, President
of the Pennsylvania Bank of Pittsburg, is
at the head of tho combination, and all orders
to buy or sell are issued by him, the
other members of tho pool having no voice
in tho matter. Riddle actod in tho same
capacity for t combination composed of
RussellSnge and other last fall and turned
over to tho syndicate a net profit of
$3,500,000 tho latter part of November.
Tho present pool is supposed to hold
for 10,000,000 barrols of oil now and
intends buying 2,000,000 barrels more,
while tho Pipe Lino combination agreed to
buy 0,000,000 or 8,000,000 barrels. The
Uniou.Oil Companyjind tho Foiest City Oil
Company aro also supposed to bo in this
latter combination. If these combinations
succeed in getting this amount' of oil they
will have all the oil above grouud andovor
two-thirds of what is represented by outstanding
certificates. It is stated on pretty
good authority that they havo nearly .tho
amount now, nnd that tho price they have
fixed for unloading is $1.50 per barrel.
Just who this high-priced oil is to bo unloaded
on is not stated. It is generally
understood thnt a large number of traders
and speculators are on the short side, and
they arc probably oxpected to bear pari of
tho load. Tho syndicato lias loaned out
certificates for sovcral million barrels, to
enable the shorts to make their deliveries,
and the calling in of this loaned oil is expected
to create a great boom. Many expect
this action to bo taken soon, possibly next
week, whilo othors think it will not bo taken
for some time. No ono knows positively
excopt Mr. IUddle, and ho is not likely to
advertise tho dato much in ndvanco. The
great element of doubt remaining is the
Standard Oil Company paper. This organization
has been n constant seller
on tho market since prices
crossed tho dollar lino. Before
the late boom began it was
reputed to hold 15,000 of tho 25,000 1,000-certificates
issued by the Unitod Pipo Line.
If it continues to hold half this number and
tho syndicates buy up 18,000,000 or 20,-000,000
barrols, there will bo vory few
certificates left for the trade at largo," unless
the Standard spills the balanco of its
load. Tho trndo generally has considered
tho Standard a bear, and, b iug accustomed
to acknowledge its Biipromacy in tho pe
troleum market, speculators havo sold
short very heavily. But it is boginning to
bo whisporcd that the Standard itself is at
tho bottom of tho pool, and lias appoared as
an open bear to induce tho light i eights to go
short. Time alono will tell; but every
move in tho big gamo is a warning to tho
public to get out of tho oil market and stay
out until the storm is over.
A Spanish Court Scandal.
Calk Tho young queen of
Spain passed through Paris Monday on
her way to meet her mother at
Madridis rifo with rumors of a
great court scandal, whioh is to the effect
that, having ascertained the relations of the
King witli a lady of the royal circle, being
unwilling to tako tho viow of such mattors
usunlly indulged by royal pcrsonnges, she
has fled with her children from Spain, and
will never roturn thither. Tho statement
has gained groat curronoy oa tho continent,
in spite of strenuous efforts to suppress it.
Rome, Juno 19. Tho publication by the
congregation of tho propaganda of tho documents
issued by tho pope, regarding Irish
affair's, has given rise to considerable discussion
in the college of cardinals. The
differences of opinion expressed In this
body havo bocn so marked that tho pope
has instructed Cardinal Simoonl to appoint
a speoial commissioner to examino all
questions and papers in connoctlon with, or
relating to, Irish affairs.
AN OHIO CYCLONE.

Steuiienville, 0., Juno 19. Last evening
about 0 o'clock a cyclone struck this
city, doing dnmngo to property in the
northern part of tho city to tho amount of
515,000. The track of tho cyclone was
from n duo westerly course, nnd struck tho
city nt tho residencoof the late Colonel Mc-Cook,
overturning a largo number of trees
and passing over North Seventh street
swept over tho residence of Mrs. Harry
Reynolds, breaking glass and shutters and
te.tring oil' tho roof, and completely destroying
an orchard. It then ciosscd tho
Pan Handle track, doing considerable
dnmago to several residences.
Tiecs in tho path of the cyclouo
as it parsed through tho city were uprooted,
and the scene presented this oveuing is
one of grent destruct on. Eye-witnesses
state that when the cyclone readied tho
bunk of the river it plunged into the water,
lilting it up about 100 feet. S. fur ns
learned, no ono wns injured. Tho telegraph
wires wore blown down nnd much damage
dono to tho Union Cemetery. Considerable
damage is reported in the neighborhood as
far as Collier's Station. But little lain accompanied
tho c, clone.
PnniitMio, Juno 10. This section was
visited by ono of the heaviest rain and bail
storms ever known in this city. Hail caiiin
down ns lnrgc as eggf, and rain fell in torrents,
filling the streets and collars.
of this city tho storm partook of the
nature of a cyclone. Specials to tho Dispatch
and Commercial Gazette stato that
through Washington and southwestern
counties houses and burns wcro uuroofc:!,
trees uprooted, and cat tied killed. Tho
damage to railroads from washouts
nnd landslides, nnd to telegraph wires is
also great, but so far no loss of" life is reported.
Tho storm did not last an hour,
and was from tho southwest. The specials
say the track of the cyclouo was from 100
to 100 feet wide, and in many places everything
was swept ns if by a broom.
MiLi.Eitsurno, O., Juno 19. A severe

nnd tore. o4r the corner of tho Courthouse,
leaving tho edifice unsafe; tote up
numerous tioes, mid unroofed several
houses. The accompanying hail did great
damage to crops.
Gamo.v, O., June 19. A terrible rain and
hall-storm struck this city last oveninf, doing
an immense amount of dnmago to crops
ami small fruits, unroofing housed, &c
and injuring tho excavations for the waterworks.
Hail-stones as largo as

Coi.utnr.o, O., June 19. Although tho
Democratic State Convention will not bo
called to order until 10 o'clock Thursday
morning, delegates and candidates are already
Hocking upon the scene and filling up
the hotels. General Durbin Ward's snowy
mustache hns been conspicuous among tho
crowds at tho hotels sinco Sunday. Whatever

can not be denied tiiat delegates, and visitors
who arc not delegates, enthuse at tho
sound of Wnrd's name.
Judge Homily and Geddcs ore both

The Money Order Modification.
Washinciton, June 19. Tho modification
of the money order systom adopted at tho
Inst session of Congress will go into operation
July 2. After that dato orders will be
issued for all amounts nfit exceeding $100,
whilo hitherto tho limit for each order has
been $50. The charge for orders not exceeding
$10 will be reduced to eight cents,
whilo tho $100 orders will cost
A great many peoplo seem to have got
tho erroneous idea that tho now 2-cent letter
postago rato will go into effect July 1,
but it will really not do so until October 1.
It is feared that a great many peoplo will
begin practicing on the into bofore

of letters will, accordingly, have to bo
" deaded " for want of postago.
Japan Thinks t'nlua Has n Itod In
Shanghai, June 19. Japan is doeply interested
in tho Tonquiu question, and suspects
that when China has got all ready
for war she will suddenly come to terms
with Franco and then fall upon
Japan and sottlo the ancient
grudge between thoao notions. Consequently,
Japan is preparing for war on a
largo scale. England has not shown hor
hand. Russia is passive. The American
representative is working for a poacoful
settlement between France and China,
Tho reactionary party In Pekin have
frevallcd upon tho Emperor to send Lo

purpose of -ruining him. At present it is
impossible to forsee the result.

Panama, Juno 18. The revolution in Ecuador
has not yet terminated. Tho rebols
surround Guayaquil, nnd by feints and
light attacks keep Volntiuiilla and his
troops on tho continual move. Several
skirmishes havo taken place, but tho number
of lives lost hns fortunntely been small.
Vclntimilla believes his enemies less
in tho ranks than in tho streets and'
makes them all shoulder a riilo. Desertion
follows, and tho contagion spreads so rapidly
that small bodies of men aro never
sent out to feel tho lines. Alfaro and
Sarasti aro gradually tightening around
tho city. All utoros aro closed
at nightfall, and many sleep in
tho consulates, whilo those in tho exposed
parts tako refuge in tho houses of friends
they think aro more happily situated.
Foreign ors have placed placards on their
houses declaring their ownership by neutrals,
who aro not afraid of tho revolutionists,
but fear tho government troops
may break looso and commcuco to plunder.
Provisions aro scarco and dear.
Somo shots havo been exchanged, and
Alfuro8 men mado a pretended attack on
tho town on tho 23d ult. Firing commenced
about one a. m., and was kept up until
almost thrco o'clock. Tho rifle nnd

and somo sixty cannon shots were
fired. Somo small sholls fell in tho
city, but did no harm. Veintimilla depends
on tho heights to assist his defence,
but tho rebel guns outrange him, and tho

his men down to tho level. Tho i evolutionists

conflict which may oxposo the city, whil c
tho Dictator's objoct is evidently so to compromise
matters as to insure tho destruction
of tho town, whilo merchants and

St. Lori, Mo., June 19. The indications
aro for unusually high water in tho Missouri
river. The town of Corning, forty
miles north of St. Joseph, is inundated and
several houses are entirely swept nway.
About four miles of the railroad aro
under water. All tho railroads in tho
Western and Central Missouri, excepting
the Missouri Pacific, aro badly
washed nnd trains arc generally abandoned.
It looks as though serious trouble, not only
to railroads, but to all river towns and bottom
land farms, is to result from the present
or threatened condition of the rivets.

Swindled Twice by the Name Man.
New Youk, June 19. Ferdinand Witte, a
I young Gorman, has been committed in the
) Jefferson Market Police Court on two
charges of swindling mado by Henry A.
Soddong, of 434 East Fifth street. Mr.
Soddong said that in May, 1882, Witte
brought to him a lottcr of introduction from
n in Chicago. This after
ward proved to be n forgery. Witto said
1 ho was a broker, and had failed, but had
t saved from tho wreck $50,000 in Govern-
, inent bonds, which woro in a tin
i box at the Manhattan Safo Deposit Company.
He got tho box and gave it to
Mr. Soddong for Bafo keeping. From time
to time ho borrowed monoy from Mr.
Finally ho said the bonds stood in
his grandmother's name, and it would bo
necessary to go toWashington and havo them
transferred. Thoy wont to Washington last
December, and had a jolly time on more
1 money which Witto borrowed. Thero was a
hitch in Washington, and Mr. Soddong became
suspicious and broko open the box.
It contained rubbish of no vnluo.
1 Witto had obtained $d,800 from him al-
together. On thoir roturn to the city Sod-,
dong had Witto arrested, but failed to
I mako out his caso. Witto regained his
' confidenco and borrowed $500 more, and
last wcok Soddong again caused his arrest.

Lynn, Mass., Juno 19. A representative
of n New York law firm has been in town
inquiring for tho relatives of a man named
Foot, who, he said, resided in Lynn somo
time botwocn 1850 and 1800, and was con
nccted in some way with the paper business,
just what kind docs not appear. He
Baid Foot went to Now York about tho year
1800, and engaged in tho brewing business.
After a whilo ho becamo involved in a lawsuit.
Foot died, but tho suit was still
pushed, and within a short timo a verdict
for Mr. Foot was rendered by the New York
courts. Tho amount involved is nearly or
quito $1,000,000, whioh, minus tho
fees, goes to the heirs of Mr. Foot if

Two Desperate Prisoners Escape and
Liberate Ten Others.
Philadelphia, Pa., Juno 20. West
Chester has been thrown into great excitement
by tho report that a notorious horse-thief
named Frankfort Joo hnd broken jail,
and, on his way to liberty, had released the
equally notorious William Robinson and a
third convict, and hnd liberated about ten
other men. Frankfort Joo occupied
an iron-sheathed coll, nnd apparently
had been working quietly
from tho moment of his incarceration
to get out. In somo wny ho obtuined
possession of tho blado of a butcher-knife,
which he fitted into a pino handle and
then notched tho edges so that ho might
have a paw, by which ho completed his
opening into the next cell, which was occupied
by Robinson. The two together then
attacked tho celling of Robinson s cell and
soon emerged into a cell on the floor nhove,
whose occupant turned in with alacrity to
assist in cutting a hole Into tho nttic. This
wns accomplished without much dilliculty,
and the trio then traversed tho attic to thu
street end of tho structure, where they cut
a hole thropgh tho roof and lowered themselves
to ho treot by means of a rope

it by a letter setting forth tho injustice

notion of tho Postmnster General was that
nfter tho bids wcro opened and tho contract
awarded, S. P. Rounds, tho United States
Printer, claimed thnt ho had mado an error
in somo of his items which would havo
given him the contract, though his bid was
$40,345.32 and that of Wynkoou & Hallen-beck
$34,992.98. Tho consequenco of this
act of favoritism is that tho Government

A Cincinnati Has Picker's M'enlth.
Cincinnati, Juno 19. Chas. Doehring,

The vault was opened and an ancient collin
was exposed to view. From tho
