Retail Druggists Plan Conference
on Supervision.
The Retail DrugKists 1 Protective Association, it
was learned yesterday, now plans to Invite all the
retail pharmacists ln the sttte to a general con
ference or mass me^tinj. to be held late in August
or early in September, to push the agitation for an
altered pystem of pharmaceutical supervision. A
Bpecial attempt wili b« made to bring the question
of- tho status of the present Board of Pharmacy
into the courts fo»- settlement.
The objection to the present system attacks both
the method by which the board is chosen and the
extent of its powers. The Protective Association
would have the board appointed by the Governor,
and not elected by the incorporated pharmaceuti
cal associations, as at present. It would also re
strict the board to ihe examination and licensing
of candidates, and would not allow it the police
power which it has at present.
This power Includes the right to make a "raid"
on a drug store at my time and take samples of
drugs for Inspection. If the drugs are not strictly
of the pharmacopoeia standard the druggist Is fined
$25. which In this district goes to the pharmaceu
tical colleges of New York and 'Brooklyn. As the
members of the board are often directly interested
in these institutions, the retail druggists charge
that unjust decisions are often made against them.
The campaign against the present law has been
fought out for more than a year, and was espe
cially intense during the session of the legislature
at Albany, where a bill was introduced for the
Retail Protective Association and another hill in
behalf of the \>w York State Pharmaceutical As
sociation, which was in the opposition. The Brown
bill, that favored by the' state association, was
pni>sei by both houses and vetoed by the Governor.
The- recent election of a new member of the
Board of Pharmacy reopened the fight, and As
semblyman Robert S. Conklln, who Introduced the
Retail Protective Associations bill, has since writ
ten to Governor Hughes charging that the election
was Illegal because, in the bill creating the board
there was no adequate provision for the manage
ment of elections and no precise statement of the
qualifications for voting. Ik urges that the
matter be referred to the Attorney General for an
opinion as goon as possible. At the conference
which Is planned by the Retull Protective Associa
tion it Is purposed to form a compact organiza
tion to oppose tbe Brown oil! and to fight the State
Pharmaceutical Association, which has committed
Itself Irrevocably to that measure.

To the Editor of The Tribune.
Sir: I want to call your attention to a great
blunder that Is about to be perpetrated directly
opposite Grant's Tomb, on the bluff overlooking the
North River and the Palisades. I refer to the
new lavatory that the Park Department purposes
to erect In the place of the temporary wooden
building put th.-re some years ago.
It Is not only a blunder but a shame that the)
thousands who visit this locality should be con
fronted with a building of this sort. in juxtaposition
with a national monument of worM-wide fame. If
this proposed building were placed In the grove of
trees about 300 feet south of the present site and
pome 30 or 40 feet below the Drive It would answer
every purpose nnd not mar the outlook, Vhlch Is
beyond comparison with nny other of Its kind.
I hope the public and all who are interested In
the beauty and historic value of this locality will
add their voice in favor of shifting: this comfort
station to a proper and less conspicuous site.
New York, July 30. DE B. W.
To the Editor of Th<s Tribune.
Sir: Beyond the argument for free hides there Is
something else. Meat Is a chief part of the daily
diet. Cheap meat is a blessing to all. The action
that will further cheap meat Is the right one Cheap
leather is only a small Item compared with cheap
meat, probably as one to one hundred.
The Importation of hides leaves the meat In a
foreign land. The raising of cattle at home gives
the home market both meat and hides. Manifestly
the ralsliiK of cattle at home should be encouraged.
Cattle are not raised for their hides alone, though
the hides micht In some countries pay for all the
cost! Here In the United States they are a by
product. Still, they are an Important part In the
profit a cattle raiser expects. For many years cattle
raising has not been profitable In the Eastern States
and comparatively few are raised. The by-products
consequent on handling cattle In large numbers
have helped greatly in transferring the industry to
the West. Now the high price for meat and the
low value of farms In the East have awakened the
thought that perhaps once more cattle raising in
the East may become profitable. If likely, then the
Dingley duty on hides should be retained.
The great increase in the number of sheep— from
36.000.000 In Cleveland's days of free wool and ad
versity to 84,000,000 In the McKlnle) days of a tariff
wool and prosperity— should be enough to show
which course to favor when considering free hides.

Hoxc One Fresh Air Home Teaches
the Creed of Helpfulness.
There are several Fresh Air agencies which co
operate with the Tribune Fund and receive chil
dren from Its workers and sometimes financial as
sistance from the Fund Among these is the
Friendly Aid Society, of East 34th ytreet, which
has a home at Green's Farms, Conn. like th^
Tribune home at Shokan, N. V.. this one is de
signed primarily for undernourished children who
nre not ill. but who have been exposed to tuber
culosis. The work has been extended to adults ln
cases where children are too young to be tp.ken
from home. A place is provided for rn..,tners.
grandmothers, and sometimes whole families" are
sent for an outing Into the country. The -.
are allowed to stay two or three weeks and linger,
until they are strengthened and prepared to fight
the disease which is found in their homes.
With such an end ln view, life at Green's Farms
Is lived ln the open as much as possiKe. Tbt
farm covers about fifteen acres of land ar.<l In
cludes two or -hards and a grove. The oH"r boys
spend nearly all their time out of doors. They
sl^ep In the barn, on the hay, and eat out in the
orchard, under the apple trees. The food is pre

there. It Is something of a camp life thty lead,

the Sound near by. In the rear of the house, bid
den from sight by rows of swaying elm trees, are
a ball field and a cleared space for all forms of out
door games. The children are not allowed to go
near the house during the day, the object being M
instil In them a love of nature and life in the
open. When the children arrive they persist in
playing around the hous*. and it is only after
being led on by the attendants that they really
begin to learn how to play In the open fields.
Two or three times a week picnics are held on
I the beach, and the children are taught how to
spend a whole day out of doors. Once for every
party a corn roast Is heM on the hill, not far away,
and there is always a field day. conducted after the
English plan. Then the children eat on the ball
grounds, compete in the different games and are
not allowed to go near the house from M in the
morning until 6 at night. They sleep out in the
I open as much as possible.
The results of this work are remarkable. The
; children are weighed carefully when they come and
I go, and the gains in weight often are surprising.
Frequently it Is found that a child has gained
ten or twelve pounds in the two -weeks spent
at the home. A special physician examines th«
children, and they have all the medical attendance
necessary. Cod liver oil is provided for those chil
dren who are particularly run down.
Neither Is the' spiritual or mental side neg
lected. Each Sunday a song service Is held In the
open, so arranged that those of all creeds may
attend. During the service the attention of the
children Is called to the passing birds or clouds,
that their Interest may be awakened In nature. A
small museum of natural history, which contains
•pecimens from all over the world, has been pre
sented to the home. There is a microscope as well,
and there are also many illuminated nature books.
The motto of the home Is "Love One Another," and
every effort Is made to make this motto part of the
very life of the children.
The little visitors are fond of singing the Friend
1 ly Aid song. There are six verses, and all Join
hands in slnrlng th« last chorus, making a very

Says There Will Be Trouble When Church Is
Only Place to Go.
Coney Island won another point through a deci
sion of the Justices of the Court of Special Ses
sions. Brooklyn, yesterday. The manager of a
"hit the nigger la the face" tent. in the Bowery,
had been arrested for breaking the Sunday laws
early In the reason, and had been dismissed by
Magistrate Ti he. The District Attorney's office
made a test case on appeal, and in granting the
motion to disml93*Justlce Mclnerney said:
•You might as well go out and arrest people
for playing golf on Sunday as for throwing a
ball with their hands. If you are not going to
let people do anything on Sunday except to go to
church and walk around, there Is soon going to
be trouble. It is absurd to have people arrested
for a thing like this.."
Operation for Appendicitis Too Late to Save
Life of Mauretania Fireman.
So steady is the Mauretanta at sea that she
did not have to be slowed down day before yes-.
terday while an operation for appendicitis was
being performed upon a fireman named Robert
Gibbons, who was taken severely 111 Wednesday
morning. Among the passengers were Dr. Francis
T. KinnU-uU and Dr. Waller B. James, of this
city. Both offered to help the ship's surgeon.
On such occasions It Is usual la stop or at least
slow down the vessel, but there- was so little
vibration on board the Mauretanla it wasn't nec
essary. The operation was completed success
fully, but the man had worked" too long and died
soon after. He was buried at sea. and a purse
■was made up for his widow and children.

Provident Saving* Society to Estab
lish a New Bureau.
By the establishment of a policyholders* 2i«a!tli
bureau. for the purpose of guarding the health^ef ?
its members, the Provident Savings Life Asauranca :
Society has entered a new rield in the life- insurance
business. The object is to increase mortality *ay- :
ing by helping members to discover disease '.a rirae
to check or cure it. • . . ■-/
President E. E. Rlttenhouse said yesterday thai
while the death rate from consumption. typhoid*
and other communicable diseases is decreasing, the)
death rate from diseases of the heart, brain and
kidneys and from other degenerative diseases is b»»
creasing. In order to prevent diseases of the latter
class he has devised a plan whereby members cam
receive free medical examinations every two years.
In carrying out this work the society will tsau*
health bulletins from time to time, giving polic7
holders the benefit of th* discoveries of science and
the experience and advice of medical authorities*
The plan is in line with the general movement to
promote health which has gained such headway
throughout the country during recent rears. "la
explaining the necessity for action along . these
lines President Rittenhouse has prepared mortality
charts dealing especially with diseases that may
result from the "strenuous life" which In many
respects are startling.
'In greater New York during the last thirty ytar*
th« combined death rate from apoplexy and th 9
heart and kidneys has increased from 13.2. per ten
thousand of population to 36.3 per ten thousand* or
about '.»> per cent," said Mr Rittenhouse. "Presi
dent Roosevelt's Conservation Commission esti
mated that three hundred thousand persons "were
constantly seriously 111 in this country, half of
which was from preventable diseases. There is no
doubt that the 'strenuu** life'— Intemperate
eating, drink and living— t»d much to do
with the astonishing increase in mortality f^ons
thsse diseases which are common to middle life
and old age."
