PAIL 0. scni'ii,
Dear Sir: Recognizing the fact that
there is to a certain extent, a mutual depen
dency existing between the professions of
pharmacy and medicine, and feelint; that a
better understanding of the function and
duties"of the two profession should bo re
cognized and adhered to, we, of the medi
cal profession of Cairo, object to the fre
quent habit of druggists ot thi city, of
diagnosing diseases and prescribing medi
cines, for the following reasons :
First. The science of pharmacy does
not include a knowledge of the science of
Second. You are violating the medical
practice act, by so doing, and robbing the
physicians of their legitimate business.
Third. You are practising deception
upon the sick ; therefore we ask you to ad
here to the law governing the practice of
Another grievance to which we rcspectj
fully ask your attention, is the matter of
refilling prescriptions without authority ot
the physicians who have writen them. The
above practice is injurious to both patient
and physicians; the patient often suffering
from the effects of improper medicine, and
the physician because ho is practically
held responsible for the action of the modi
cine he did not prescribe.
Again we hold that the original owner
of the prescription lose9 his ownership in
the same, s soon as it is once filled and
olaced on rile, and that ho has no right to
demand that it be taken trom tne me ami
be refilled, except by the order ot tne pre-
scribing physicians. We therefore ask
you to discontinue the practice.
After duo deliberation, we the under
signed members of the "Medical Associa
tion of Cairo" have resolved not to patron
ize directly or indirectly, any druggist,
who Blmll after this date, be known to pre
scribe for anv one requiring tho services of

attempt of tho Republican 32d general as

majority than he ever had before, is urged
by his friends as the fittest man for tho
speakership of the next federal house. He

Ono who has for over six years been
using cotton-sced meal, such as is made in
the mills in the south and in this city, says
that ho has loarned that one quart of the
meal, free from husk, ono quart of corn
menl, and one quart of bran make tho best
and safest feed-ration for a cow in full
milk. The ineal should bo free from husk,
or trouble will follow feeding it to cattle,
as Hid husk is indigestible. It must not
bo ted to cows within two months before
their time for calving, nor within ton days
after that time, and then the feeding must
begin with a small allowance, gradually in
creasing day by day. Soruo who have tried
it thoroughly say they find great advantage
comiugfrom feeding it to calves which
have no access to corn, oats and bran, and
they therefore avoid feeding it to any ani
mals except cows, or to fattening beeves.
Fed largely to a very valuable cow it caused
garget, although no more than four quarts
per day, in two rations, was given. A ration
f one part each by weight of cotton-seed
meal, one of ground corn, and oue of bran
thoroughly mixed, h is been found to give
the best results whera the cows are in full
milk in winter. Three quarts of the mix
ture is given at each fee ling.
A dispatch from Davenport, Iowa
November lstsays: On Thursday of last
week, the caso of Koehler & Lang vs. John
Hill, was tried in the district court here,
Judi'ft Walter T. Hayes, presiding. The
aso was really brought as a testofthe con
stitutional prohibitory amendment passed
by a popular vote last Juna. Plaintiffs are
brewers, and sold beer amounting to 113
n value to a Baloon keeper, who relused
payment on the ground tint the bill could
not be collected by law. The court bold
ts decision under advisement tfntil thiB
nvrning. Jutge liayes unciaeu mai ine
amendment Iris not been legally nude a
part of the state constitution, chiefly on tho
ground that the journals of the legislature
lo not contain the act in full on their
pages, and do not contain me ayes anu
nays, taken upon tho same, and that ac
cording to the journals tho act as passed by
the eighteenth general assembly, was in Us
term prohibitory of the salo or mauufac-
uring of liquor, and not only as a bever
age, but also "to bo used," and hence pro-
libited it and its uso for any and all pur
toses, even sacramental, medicinal, &c,
but as it passed the houso of the eighteenth
funeral assembly it was in terms merely
prohibitory of liquor as a beverage. In
these respects, therefore, the requirements
f the constitution providing for the man
ner of its nmendmeut have been disregard
ed. The journals do not contain tho prop
er entries, and tho same act has not passed
both houses of tho legislature.
Springfield Register :-Our Republican
friends have been having it all their own
way figuring on the political complexion
of tho Thirty-third general assembly. They
have been, with great complacency, giviug
their party a majority of twelve to twenty
on joint ballot, and have been claiming
tho houso by majorities from ono to nine.
Tho Register has not heretofore felt dis
posed to spoil tho Bport of its Republican
friends, realizing that they felt so badly
over the general results of tho late elec
tions, that it might prove fatal to soma of
them were the wholo terrible truth placed
before tljem at onco. But tho time has
como when wo must dispel the delightful
illusions with which they havo bocu be
guiling their fancy in regard to tho Illinois
legislature. We decline to allow them
any longer to "lay the flattering unction to
their souls' that they will organizo tlio
Imnsn and elect a United States Bonator in
nluco of David Davis. Tho democrats pro
poso to do one and will have a good
deal to Bay about the other. Wo give a list
of members which, while it may not bo cu
tircly accurato, owing to tho impossibility
of getting tho official roturns, tt ts com
piled from sources that are ordinarily ro
liable. It may bo that changes will bo
made by tho official lists that will increase
tho Republican majority in tho senate, but
that party has no right yet to claim the in
crease, and we shall await the official re
turns before wo allow t. According to our
list tho Democrats will bo ablo to organizo
the house, and with tho opposition mem
bers will havo a majority on joint ballot.
There is a possibility of the majority on
joint ballot being reduced to a tio, but
there seems to be, so far as tho house is con
cerned, scarcely a question that tho official
returns will confirm tho Democratic ma
jority. Tho Republicans havo been claim
ing their members in Bomo instances upon
unreliable reports, aud aro unwilling to
give up. The Register docs not claim in
fallibility for its list, but neither havo tho
Republicans any right to claim infallibility
for those they have been furnishing. Our
list gives the Democrats twenty-three sen
ators and seventy-eight representatives, or
a total of 101, and the Republicans twenty
eight senators and seventy-two representa
tives, or a total of 100; and it gives the
Independents three representatives.
THE RIVER COMMITTEE.
Last Su mmer there arrived at The
llalliday in this city Messrs. J.C. Borrows,
of Michigan, Gcorgo D, Robinson, of Mass
achusetts, Frank Hiscock, of New York,
Col. Hunton, engineer of the Biltimore
harbor board, and several other gentlemen
of prominence in the government at WhsIi
sngton. Captain John R. Thomas was also
of patty, and all were given possession
of the parlor "A" whore they held frequent
conference. They wero a portion of the
special committee appointed by congress to
investigate tho work of improving the
Mississippi river in progress below Cairo,
and were here to meet the
other portion of the committee which was
expected to arrive some time during last
ni;ht on tho steamer Gu'ding Star. The
Guiding Star has boon chartered so fir as
the cabin is concerned, but she is loaded
down to the water's edgo with freight, and
slow timo will be made. It is expected
that tho party will be royally entered at
Memplrs, Vicksburg and New Orleans.
They were expected to spend Sun lay in
Cairo, and start away from here Monday
morning for the down trip, hut the boat was
too heavily laden to make the trip in the
expected time. At. this point the
real work of the committee will
begin, and if they all do their duty
several of tho members of the commission
made very favorable impressions. Messrs.
Burrows, chairman, Iliscoek, Robinson, and
Ellis left the impression that they were
very honest about the investigation, were
not pn-judiced either way in thejlcast, dnd
would give the work already done under
tho direction of the commission, and the
plans for future worK and their practicali
ty, the fullest and fairest consideration.
As an indication that the committee
does not mean to nuke its trip down the
river one of pleasure and banquets, tho
manner iu which it launched itself into the
work assigned to it at this point yesterday
is worthy of note. The weather was very
.disagreeable; the temperature at 41 above
zero and a sharp wind blew from the north,
while the roads for the most part were
muddy from late heavy raius. But these
things did not prevent the party from mak
ing a trip of gtfveraf miles in an open rig
behind a pair of slow mules, to investigate
some of the government works in tho Mis
sissippi river near this city. In company
with Captain W. P. llalliday ''as guide,
Mr. Burro'vs. chairman, and Messrs.
Ellis, Hiscock, Robinson and Thomas,
made the trip, and, arrived at the point, alt
rolled up thier broad-cloth trousers, waded
out close to the water's edge, and exami
ned and noted down tho condition and
effect of tho work done by tho government
there. If the committee does as good work
all along the river as it did hero, aud it is
governed wdolly by the tacts and by a desire
to render unto "Ciesar that which is
Crosar's" then its report will be
of much value and will
it may not bo so much of a pleasure trip
It has bejin reported that it is apparent
from the make-up of tho committee that
its report will not abound in enthusiastic
commendation of the plan of tho Missis
sippi river commiBsion. It is said that Mr
Robinson, who is called "the bull-dog of
tho treasury" at Washington, is notoriously
adverse to appropriating as much as the
commission asks; that the majority of tho
the committee are men who are known not
to bo friends of Missisippi river improve
mont, and that those of tho committee who
have professed to bo friends of such im
provement are, like Captain Thomas, friends
only iu words and under certain circumstan
ces, while in deed they aro openly there
verso. But however this may bo it is cettain
that, in conversation with some of our promt
nnnt citizens hero, ardent friends
ot river improvement, of course,
bo ono of which wo friends of river im
provement, under tho plan of the river com
mission, nood havo no fear.
Tho steamer Guiding Star upon whicl
tho party was to coutinuo its trip down the
river from this point had uot arrived lato
last night although tho telegraph announced
that Bho would bo here by 0 o'clock. Her
heavy load of freight and consequent slow
progress was tho causo of tho delay.
HINTS ABOUT READING.
Reading book oftor book in unintorrupt
od succession is a habit of many peoplo
who deludo themselves with tho idea that
they aro acquiring stores of knowledge
We are temptod to say that it would be
hfitter to read no book at all. The habit
wo speak of is pernicious, and if persevered
in, fatal to the ieiellectual faculties.
Ono might as well eat all tho time
and leavo no period for digestion. . Thero
is a certain method about reading profita
bly. The index of tho book, if it have one,
should be mastored. Before attacking the
book, test yourself as to the subject treated,
and settle in your own mind in what order
and fashion you would handle the theme.
hen go over tho work and reduce its con
tents mentally to the leading thoughts, pro
positions or fi'cts which give it any value.
his is not a laborous matter, nor is it a
bore; it docs not lessen tho pleasure of read-
ng and it greatly enhances the profit. Pro
fessional men know that sufficient treatises
must be read in this way, and literary men
who have any art in their calling pursue
the same course. The most slovenly habits
ot reading aro in tho lino of fiction. This
s decidedly unfair, since many of tho most
brilliant intellects of the age seek an audi
ence through this channel.
A great novelty is uot to bn dispatched
off-hand. In short, if you do not see prop
er to pursue a systematized course of read-
ng, at least mako it a fixed habit to get a
clear, definite aud permanent impres ion of
what you rea l.
