GOOD HEADING FOR THOUGHTFUL
IUOCLD BE CAtlEPCLLY READ THAT CORRECT
CONCLUSIONS MAT BE ARRIVED AT.
riUL g. sciiua,
Dear But: Hocoynizinij tlie fact that
there is to a certain extent, a mutual depen
dency existing between the protestious of
pharmacy and medicine, and feeling that a
better understanding of the function and
duties of the two profession should be re
cognized and adhered to, we, of the mndi
cal profession of Cai:o, object to the fre
quent babit of druggists ot thio city, of
diagnosing diseases and prescribing medi
cines, for the following reasons:
First. The science of pharmacy does
not include a knowledge of tho science of
tiecoud. You are violating the medical
practice act, by go doing, and lobbing the
physicians of their legetimate business
Third. You are practising deception
upon the sick; therefore we ask you t ad -
hero ta the law governing the practice of
. Another grievance to which we respect
fully ask your attention, is the matter of
rending prescriptions without authority or
the physicians who have writen them. The
above practice is injurious to both patient
aud physicians; the patient often suflering
lroru the elTucts of improper medicine, and
(lie physician because ho is practically
held responsible for the action of the medi
cine hd did not prescribe.
Agiin we hold that the original owner
of the prescription loses u'8 ownership in
the same, as soon as it is once filled and
placed on tile, and that be has no right to
demand that it be taken from the file and
be refilled, except by the order of the pre
bcribiog physicians. We therefore ask
you to discontinue the practice.
After due deliberation, wn the under
signed members of the "Medical Associa
tion of C-iiro" h we res dved n t to patron
ize directly or indirectly, any druggist,
who shall after this date, be known to pre
scribe for any one requiring tho services of
a physician, or who shall refill or duplicate
prescriptions without the written or verbal
authority of the phvsicim. Re,.p"c'tullv,

would desire. It was cool, unpleasantly

and there were many ot them
who were on their ways to the K. M. K.
C. d ines the slurp broeza acted only as an
invigorator, a sharpener of the desire for
exercise and pleasure. About 30 couples were
present at the dance, which mide a very
pleasant crowd in the Krew's nice little
hall. The music was furnished by
Prof. Storer's band, composed of some of
the best musicians in the city. Dancing
began early and time flew fast as the young
dancers with glowing facts and light feet
went through the several forms as pro
nounced by a lirge-lunged caller.
Right and left, cross over, ladies' chain,
Vtlf promenade, swing in tho corners, and
all that, was the order of exercises; and
eyes looked loye to eyes which spoke
again, and all that also, until the wee sma'
hours when two by two the merry crowd
departed for their respective homes. Tho
affiir was a pleasant one for all throughout,
as such affairs always are when given by

by the boasts and "brass" of tho newspa

SIIAWNEETOWN S HORROR.
Shawn tETowN, III., DjC. 12 Since the
dispatch of yesterday in regard to the ter
lible explosion of Vincent's saw-mill your
corrcpoudetit has visited the grounds, and
can give a more particular description of
tue hoirors of the accident. Vincent's mill
stands on the bank of the Ohio river, the
front of tho boiler facing the river, which
here runs not th and south. The explosion
occurred dowuward aud outward from a
cominou centre. Tho front of tho builtr
was carried some 800 yards east, and fell
in the river about 100 yards from shore.
Tho after part of the boiler was carried 200
yards west. The two Prico boys, brothers,
who must have been at tho south end ot the
boiler, were blown at least 200 yards south.
Two other boys, SIcLauglin and Glass,
were blown southeast, ono tailing into the
river over 200 yards away nnd the other
was blown to near the edge of the water in
the same direction. Wm. J. Montgomery,
the sawyer, who was on the north side of
the boiler, was blown against some lum
ber and tho fence northward
some forty feet away. His leg
to the kneo was found in
the mill. The other, off at the hip, was

THE COMMISSIONER'S PLANT.
The following very concise explanation
of the p! ui of . Mississippi liver improve
ment adopted by the riv-r comaiis-ion, is
taken from a spjech mile, by Ciptain
Jmes 1J Eft is, at a b inqujt given him at
New Orleans la-t week :
1. "It propo esto biirg the flood chan
nel of the river to a comparative uniformi
ty of width, or para'lelism, by the encour
agement of deposits in the w ide places, as a
certain and ouly means of insuring the per
manence of low-w ater channel.
2. l,It recogn.z'is the importance ot clos
ing the outlets tli rou ah which its flood
waters escape, because by concentrating all
ot the flood waters iu one channel, a deeper
low water channel will result.
3. "It recognize the fact that in propor
tion as the volume flowing iu the channel
is increased, greater erosion of the bed oc
curs; conscqently the flood line takes a
lower plane, and levees become lets neces
sary. Other plans of improvement were
recommended for the lowatcr channel, by
which it was believed 8 or 10 feet depth
could bo secured, but such plans did l ot
contemplate connecting tli'i flood channel,
and could only have resulted in partial and
temporary benctlt. The levee system, as it
is termed, looked only to the protection of
the lands agaiii.sl overflow.
"The plans adopted hus Btood tho test
of tho most thorough scientific discussion
and investigation, dur.ug the last soven or
eight years, and is sustained by the most in
dubitable proofs of its correctness by the
results of wuiks erected not only at tho
South Puss, but subsequently on the Mis
sissippi river and elswwhero in tho valley.
Where tho river is connected from Cairo
down it will hive a low-waler channel at
least 20 feet deep, 1,110 miles inland from
the Gulf cf Mexico into tho, very heart of
tho immense empire referred to; and its
cost will not probably exceed the value of
one single crop of wheat on a tract of
land forty miles square at a dollar
per bushel. It would probably, cheapen the
cost of getting such a crop to market ten
cents per bushel. Tho total cost in such
case would bo repaid in ten years by the
saving in transportation on the wheat croo
of of a farm forty miles square.
"But it is unnecessary to dwell upon tho
importance of carrying 20 feet of navigable
depth from tho sea 1,100 miles inland into
the heart of tho continent before nn audi
ence so exceptionally intolligcnco as the
ono. whom I have the honer of addressing.
I will, therefore, simply say, as au engineer,
that it is entirely practicable to secure
this result, und that when the river shall
have been thus improved there will be but
little need of levees in the alluvial basin of
the river." .
