SCORES OVER POVERTY AND NOW SEEKS BRIDE BRIDGEPORT, Conn., An?. 7.—Here is a chance for a poor girl, not too old and not too young, of any religion and almost of any white nationality, who need not be good looking, to find a loving and good looking husband and a cozy home well provided for. The young man has an assured posi tion, steel blue eyes, is an athlete, ■well set up, and is 30 years old. He asks an eastern paper to help find him a wife. His name is George Bristol and he lives on the outskirts of .Bridgeport. Letters can be n<l«lj • . bi i to him at the general delivery in this city, as he doesn't want a line formed in the street in front of his house. Jn his boyhood Bristol struggled against the bitterest poverty, and then it was that he made up his mind that if ever he became able to ask a girl to share his lot he -would pick her from the ranks of poor and honest working girls. "\\ Hen I was 15 my father died," he said, "I worked with all my might and kept th( roof over the head of my mother and brothers, aged 7 and 9. Three years later, when mother died, I wanted to take care of my brothers, but as I was a minor my married sis ters and other relatives interfered and took them .m.i the furniture away while I was off at work.

' 'GOOD SAMARITAN' BISHOP'S SUBJECT Preaches to Large Congregation in the Cathedral of St. Vibiana 'The Good Samaritan" was the topic of tii" sermon preached by the Rt. Rev. Bishop Conaty before a largo con gregation yesterday morning at the Cathedra] of St. Vibiana. The bishop dwelt on the beauties of the parable of Christ, and said in part: "This parable seems to be the most universally known of all the parables of Christ. It lixes forever in the minds (if men the beautiful lesson that Christ tamo to teach—that all men are broth < rs and that charity finds its true ex presslon in giving aid to those who are suffering, entirely regardless of race, creed or any previous personal relation ship to them. Christ gave the parable of the Good Samaritan as an answer to the question of the learned scribe who asked him: 'Who Is my neighbor?' The question was rather an intellectual one put forward by the scribe, who was learned in the law, and Christ's an swer was an appeal to the heart to Show that the neighbor was to be de termined by his compassion and aid to the suffering, regardless not only of lines of race or creed but also of per sonal dislikes or hatreds arising from injuries receive^!. NO HEWAIUI "The wounded man wag a Jew; the charity extended to him came from a Samaritan. To tha Jew, the Samaritan was a man of evil, and to the Samari tan, the Jew was one to be detested as belonging to a hated race. The voice of humanity appeals to the Samaritan, and he acts as a neighbor to the suffer ing Jew. He forgets his business af fairs, exposes himself to danger, ap plies the simple remedies at hand, takes the wounded man to the inn and pro vides for all his needs. He was moved to mercy, and hence his charity had the characteristic of sincerity. He did not confine himself to mere words of sympathy, but cared for the injured man and helped him by good deeds. His charity was perfectly gratuitous, for there was no hope of reward. His one thought was to save the man from death and help restore him to health. His generous charity did not allow him to stop to consider the losses that might come to him by delay or the incon veniences that might result in a strange land among a people who were his enemies. His charity was univer sal, springing from tho sense of com passion for a man In suffering and de termined by the great broad line of hu manity. It mattered not if in that man he recognized an enemy, charity bade him help hm because he was in need of a neighbor's help. His charity pro vided for tho future also so that noth ing might be left undone to complete the act of helpfulness.

Tho pagan world had never known the dignity of human nature, the Jewish wrld wag narrowed to the brethren of tho covenant, but Christ taught the lesson of a common hu ranity In which all men were brothers. "Under the figure of the Good Sa maritan we may see tho Divine Saviour, who, by His incarnation ami rMemp tlon, became the true neighbor to than wounded and robbed by sin on his jour ney through life. The old law and the prophets could not help him, but Christ came and though he recognized in man ono who had become his enemy by reason of sin yet hi moved to companion toward him, bound hi 1 llis wounds, poured into them the <>il and wine of His divine grace, placed him in the .slviti r of his church and provided for him the help necessary to bring him to the full enioyment of spiritual life.

W.C.T.U. Department "Whisky nnd Brandy: WIH They Be Recognized as Medicines In the New Pharmacopoeia ?'' The above is the title of a very in teresting paper in tho Union Signal of July 7 by Mrs. Martha M. Allen, the national superintendent of tho depart ment of mldical temperance, In which is set forth the efforts made by the na tional W. C. T. U. to secure the omis sion of whisky and brandy from the next revision of the standard book of medicines known as tho "United States Pharmacopoecia." A letter was scfct to each delegate to the convention held in Washington, D. C, last May for the purpose of dis cussing the changes necessary In the U. S. P., in which were presented vital arguments and statistics collected from hospitals all over the world, and the opinions of many of the leading phy sicians of this and other countries as medicinal agents has diminished in all hospitals, and in the practice of most physicians; in fact many physicians state that they never have occasion to prescribe alcohol in any form. The letter further says: "It seems to us that in view of these facts the retention of whisky and brandy in the U. S. P. places the medi cal profession in a false light. In this connection it may be noted that only two pharmacopoeias recognize whisky, that of Greece and our own. If a sub stance which has been known so well, and for so long a time, possessed valu able medicinal properties, is it con ceivable that other nations would not have Included it in their pharmaco poeias? The Therapeutic committee of tho British Medical association has recommended the omission of brandy (the only distilled liquor in the British pharmacopoeia) from the British Phar macopoeia. "2 The retention of whisky and brandy in the Pharmacopoeia deceives the public in regard to the medicinal value of these substances. One of the strongest arguments advanced by the liquor dealers and the manufacturers of patent medicines is that whisky and drandy, or the ingredients of the patent medicines, are contained in the Phar macopoeia, and thus receive tha sanc tion of the medical profession. It is difficult for the individual physician, who is advising his patient against the use of whisky and patent medicines, to counteract the false impression thus conveyed. W. C. T. U. workers find the same difficulty in trying to teach women to avoid the self-prescription of alcoholic liquors and patent medi cines, a work which hns the indorse ment of all good physicians. "3 As is well known, the whisky in terests are thoroughly organized, and aro using every means possible to se cure tho Indorsement of the medical profession for the use of alcohol. There Is nothing else in the Pharmacopoeia which has such vast commercial in terests as whisky; it is probably more important commercially than all of the drugs in the Pharmacopoeia combined, ami it Is certain those interested in it will use every effort to get it indorsed ity. It assures us there is no source of reward greater than the doing of good 1n the name of God to those who are afflicted. It appeals to men to be Good Samaritans and so live that the world will be blessed by their charity. Our divine Saviour presents the Samar itan doing acts of charity to the wounded Jew ns the best anEwer to the scribe's question, 'Who Is my neighbor? 1 Tho scribe is forced to say, 'He that hath done mercy i? neighbor to him who fell among thieves.' Christ's word to htm comes to us all, 'Go and do thou in like man ner.' The test of our love for the neighbor is in being prepared at all times to help him, ecpeelally when he In Buffering. The love of God is linked with the love of the neighbor, and Christian charity finds its type md c] in the Good Samaritan. This arable teaches us to bo a nrtgiii.ur to everyone i" trouble. Nationality and religion, likes and dislikes, should offer no obstacle to tho exercise of ty "What one would wish to find when he himself is in need of help, that same he should extend to the one found to tie suffering.

JULIA A. GARRISON by the convention. Is it not unfair, both to the medical profession and to the public, which looks to the medical profession for guidance in such ntat ters, for a substance of such extremely limited value, if it has any, medicin ally, to occupy such a conspicuous po sition? It seems to us unfortunate for the Pharmacopoeia to be exploited commercially. The chairman of the present committee of revision has fre quently spoken of the bribes (in one case amounting' to $5500) offered him if he would change certain words in the Pharmacopoeia. It would be most un fortunate for the influence of physi cians for any suspicion to be cast upon the motives governing the attitude of the Pharmacopoeia, and we believe that there is no subject in which this attitude could be more easily misun derstood and misrepresented than In the case of whisky. There are other preparations In the T7. S. P. to which we should like to di rect your attention. The International conference for tho unification of form ulas for patent medicaments urged that no such medicaments be made In the form of wines; this action was tak en entirely for scientific reasons. Near ly all of the pharmacopoeias have dis continued the use of wine as a pharma ceutical agent. The U. S. P., however, contains at least eight such wines, one of which, wine of coca, has the repu tation of being used as a beverage rather than as a legitimate drug. Oth er of these wines are, no doubt, used fnr beverage purposes also. Mny we not urge you to use your Influence in sPrnring the omission of these prep arations which nre admitted to be un scientific, and which wa know are a foe to temperance, and w rhich place the medical profession in a false light, that of being on the side of the liquor eeller in the present struggle against Intemperance ? "Before the year 1920, when another revision of the Pharmacopoeia appears, whisky as a medicine, will be laughed to scorn by all intelligent people; and if whisky Is in the l!U0 Pharmacopoeia, t\ i revision committee, and Dr. "Wiley as Its chairman, will have to bear a large share of the blame for the blun der." "Alcohol is a fuel, useful in science and in the arts, . . . but the man who thinks he can compete with a etove in burning alcohol makes a very great mistake —he is outclassed."

Dr. Fisk declares that while alco hol In excess is deadly poison, medical J jgment pronounces against even its moderate use. "We believe that the time will come as predicted by Huxley, Spencer and others, when'the man who deliberately throws away in no Rood cause the splendid asset of sound health, shall bo declared a social en emy."

BITE OF PET DDE KILLS HIS YOUNG MISTRESS inattention to Wound Brings on Hydrophobia—Dies in Agony NEW YORK, Aug. 7.—Bitten by her little black-haired pet dog six weeks ago, Mrs. Julia Cantor, 22 years old, of 238 East Seventh street, died In great agony of hydrophobia in Belle vue hospital yesterday afternoon. At the time she was bitten her hus band took her to a local druggist and had the wound cauterized. They were on the hand, very Blight, healed quick ly and caused no pain. Little or noth ing was thought of them, even at the time, and they wore soon entirely for gotten. Mrs. Cantor's keenest anxiety Indeed was about her pet. For after he had bitten her he ran away, and he never came back. The woman had been very fond of him and criod a great deal because of her loss. On the day of the biting the dog did not seem well. Mrs. Cantor did not take him, as nsual, to her place of business with her. When she returned the animal seemed nervous. She stooped to pat and coax him, and he bit her. The first symptom that something was wrong with the unfortunate wo man came in a strange manner last Saturday evening. Mrs. Cantor was preparing to take a bath. At sight of the water she was seized with spasms at the throat. She hurried to her hus band, who had her taken to Bellevue. At the hospital Mrs. Cantor was given the Pasteur treatment. But it was too late. On Sunday morning she seemed easier. In the afternoon, how ever, the spasms returned with In creased violence. Throughout the night she grew worse and was in great agony all yesterday morning.
