MEDICAL FAKIRS BRANDED

S, L BIGELOW, OF U. OF M.
Scandal That Bloodsuckers Are
4
Allowed to Be in Business, He
Tells C. H. S. Graduates
“DRUG CURES’' CONDEMNED
Says Nostrums Contain Nar
cotics From Bondage of Which
v Patients Seek Freedom
"We moit educate the children to
be harder to fool than their parents
are." said S. Lawrence Bigelow, pro
fe&aor of general and physical chem
istry, University of 'Michigan, In
closing his address on “Science as a
protection agalust fraud,” before the
graduating class of the Central High
school, in the auditorium of the
’ school, Thursday morning.
The professor paid his respects to
the medical quacks in particular, and
appealed to his hearers to use their
iulluence to put them out of the busi
ness.
“Many women are todky denying
, themselves the necessities and com*
forts of life to buy the useless prep
arations of quacks,” said the professor
In the course of his talk, “in the hope
that they or some dear friends may be
benefited. Now, something must be
done to stop these bloodsuckers. It's
a scandal, an outrage, that they should
be allowed to go on. Someone
cynically say that a man should suf
fer If he Is fool enough to pay a dol
lar for something that Is no good.
I say that such reasoning Is wrong;
we should help to protect one another
from such frauds, and use the laws to
put the medical parasites In jail,
where they belong.”
The professor, In exposing some of
the more prominent of patent medi
cines, pointed out that they contained
more alcohol than does champagne,
one exceptionally popular “remedy”
having three times as much. Sooth
ing syrups soothed, be said, because
they are liberally supplied with mor
phine.
So-called cures for the drug habit
also came in for a roasting. The pro
fessor declared that the cures were
pure fakes; that the drugs given as
curative agencies contained the very
same drug to which the patients were
enslaved. Scientific analyses had
proven this, he said. The only differ
ence In the administration was that
the drug In the treatment was given
at an elevated price.
“It is something terrible to think
how this band of human varapireß
•carries on its damaging work,” said
the professor in “panning” the "drug
cures.”
The professor said statistics proved
that 85 per cent of diseases would
ruu their course and disappear with
out treatment of any kind, and that
the patent medicine manufacturers
could very well lay claim to that per
centage of cures. He also told of a
certain preparation for “the recrea
tion of lost health” being sold for a
dollar a bottle, while the cost of pre
paring It was only about four cents.
It had a flavor of cottage cheese,
which seemed to be a fascinating
feature, the professor said. Other
concoctions were sold at an even
greater percentage of profit, costing
less than one per cent to prepare,
while selling for a dollar and more
per bottle, the speaker declared.
Frauds In connection with the ex
traction of gold from seawater were
also reviewed by the professor, as
were the schemes of unscrupulous
brokers, who swindled by means of,
brooked mining deals. The brokers,;
he said, paid as much as 25 cents a
name for prospective victims, being
particularly anxious to get hold of
widows and orphans, to whom life in-'
surance had been left. These frauds, |
he said, were accomplished through
the “devilish Ingenuity of Impostors."
' While It was difficult to reach cer
tain kinds of quacks and swindlers,
the professor said tlxat the present
pure food laws were working havoc
with the patent medicine manufactur
ers, because they are now obliged to
tell on the labels what their nos
trums contain.
The presentation of the diplomas to
the graduates followed the address.
Music was furnished by the school
orchestra.
HIS “ELIXIR OF LIFE”
PUTS HIM TO DEATH
LONDON, June 20.—A mysterious
Krtsonlng case is reported from West
am. Gustav Neumann, aged 73, and
Charlotte, his wife, aged 72, kept
a grocer's shop, were found in a state
of collapse. Mr. Neumann died soon
after, but his wife recovered, having
only suffered from shack.
The curious Interest of the affair
centers around Neumann’s alleged dis
covery of "The Elixir of Life." "I
snail always look and feel as I am—
never older, always young." was his
frequent statement. The dead man,
it is stated, was the son of a German
doctor. He had spent Ms earliet
years In Germany and the United
States. Coming to West Ham about
40 years ago he opened a green
grocer's business.
. The subtle operations of drugs and
herbs were his constant study. He
had a lance library of quaint German
volumes, over which he used to pore
eontlnuoualy from the early afternoon
till midnight. With his studious dis
position he was singularly light-heart
ed and Jovial. . "Very well and haf
py.” he would reply to the usual com*
rtimentary query as to his health.
But there was a secret to this opti
mistic spirit. He had. he assured
some of his friends, discovered ths
genuine "elixir of life"—the secret of
immortal youth. This was no strange,
mysterious cordial, but chiefly con
sisted of dilute phosphoric acid, sup
plemented at times by syrup of
buchu.
Bottle upon bottle of this concoction
was found in his rooms, and the evi
dence shows that he met his death
from an overdose of the elixir which
he thought would make him live for
ever.

Over in Muskegon county a hot
fight is on foi the Republican nomin

candidates iu the field, but Deputy
Sheriff Stauffer, of Ravenna, with
drew from the race without announc
ing which of the other eight candi

Reports from Chicago show that
there was persistent talk of a second
, term for Gov. Osborn among the Mich
igan politicians attending the national
'convention. In connection with the
vice-presidential nomination it was
frequently Btated that Osborn’s
speech at Lansing at the time of I<a-
Follette's Intended visit was the
thing that really crystalized senti
ment in favor of Roosevelt, and that
with Roosevelt at the head of the
ticket, Osborn could have the vice
presidential nomination if he would
accept it.
Frank T. McDonald, of Sault Ste.
Marie, alternate delegate from the up
per peninsula district to the Demo
cratic national convention, will start.
Friday, for Baltimore, Joining the
Michigan delegation iu Detroit.
. Mr. McDonald is of the opinion
that the sentiment of the Democratic
party is crystalizing towards Wilson
with Mayor Gaynor, of New York, a
possibility as a dark horse. He does
not believe that Bryan will be a can
didate or attempt to control the con
vention.

Senator Townsend of Michigan is
designated by the Baltimore Star as
"the good little boy” of the senate.
jThe Star says that this title has al
ways belonged to Senator Cullom, be
cause of his steady attendance upon
sessions of the senate and his famili
arity with all questions arising there.
But Cullom has lost his seat, “and the
officials of the senate are looking
around for a senator to take his
place as ‘the good little boy’ of the
senate,” Bays the Star.
“The choice seems to have fallen
upon Senator Townsend of Michigan,
for although he is anew senator, dur
ing his short period of office he has
been most regular in attendance, and
not only comes early, but remains In
his seat during the long day. In fact.
Senator Townsend has elicited com
ment from the old-timers because he
seems always to be in his seat paying
close attention to business.”
Robert Alward, who was for many
years a prominent political figure in
Ottawa couflty, Is seriously ill at his
home in Ivanrest. Mr. Alward has
been confined to his bed for about a
week as a result of an attack of the
grip, and being well along in years,
his condition has become serious.
Mr. Alward represented the Second
district in the state legislature from
1897 to 1903, and was for nine years
supervisor of Georgetown township,
Ottawa county. He also served as
treasurer of the township.
Discussing the topic of direct pri
maries in an editorial the Coldwater
Courier says:
“Let us assume, for a moment, that
there Is such a person as the average
voter, and that he brings to the sub
ject of direct primaries an open mind. I
I<et us imagine him listening first to
the men who are most eager for di
rect primaries and who expect the
most attractive results from the aboli
tion of nominating conventions. They
will tell him that with direct pri
maries in operation the world will be
a better place than be has ever found
it, and better than he thinks it cap
able of becoming.
Governor Osborn bas given out the
list of chargee which he has prefer
red against Robert H. Shields, chair
man of the state tax commission.
They are serious enough to warrant
a thorough Investigation. The gov
ernor reflects upon Shields as an of
ficer and a man In his charges, and
they should be sifted until the people
of the state know the truth. The
position that Mr. Shields occupies Is
one of large responsibility, and there
should not be any suspicion attached
to the occupant. Undoubtedly Mr.
Shields will be given opportunity to
defend himself before a competent
and impartial Jury. ‘Either the gov
ernor is wrong or Mr. Shields has
committed malfeasance. An investi
gation will disclose the facts. —Flint
Daily Journal.
“They will tell him that among the
opponents of direct primaries he will
find most of the bosses, big and lit
tle. moßt of the men whose place In
politics would be endangered by any
thing that Interfered with the smooth
working of the political machine.
"Now let him listen to the op
ponents of direct primaries. They
will tell him that direct primaries
are clumsy, an abandonment of rep
resentative government, unworkable,
advocated by none save crazy en
thusiasts. "'X
“If he turns to states where this
unworkable direct primary system Is
actually at work he will find one sur
prising example of Its possibilities,
in Wisconsin, with direct primaries In
operation. Isaac Stephenson .became
the Republican candidate for the
United States senate. His campaign
for the nomination cost him a little
more than a hundred thousand dol
lar*t
"The average voter, however, may
discover before he has gone far In hts
Inquiry that the Stephenson case Is
exceptional, and yet a representative
case may be found nearer home —a
candidate for the Republican nomina
tion for governor withdraws because
of the vast fortune that would be re
quired to make the fltfht under the
present primary laws of Michigah."
