The Propei-tie* of Coca.
Mr. Dtt Pre expresses the opinion that coca is the most potent nervine at man’s disposal. “Its hygienic properties are disclosed from its physiological proper ties.” is the verdict pronounced by a | Spanish physician resident at San Salva dor, who furthermore declares that in hot infusion coca is the most useful anil healthful beverage one can drink after , dining. It is especially commemlablo to the feeble and to those who have tran scended the limits of sobriety in using al- I cohol. and, therefore, should be tested in ( asylums for inebriates. It surely and certainly calms nervous excitability, and, , used in small quantities, enables one to endure cold, rain and snow, and to defy ! great fatigue, and restores the forces im paired or lost by excesses. In South American countries it is popu larly used for indigestion, disordered stomach, hysteria, flatulency, colic and all intestinal troubles. It Is employed constantly by toilers in | the mines, and when they reach the mines after marching several days through forests and over mountains, sustained alone by the use of coca and maize, they are permitted to eat at discretion througL four days and have perfect rest. Co caismo. or habitual intoxication by use of coca, becomes more incurable than alco holism or servitude to opiates, but its con sequences are not yet wholly measured nor determined. Excessive and constant nse of the coca as an intoxicant begets rapid moral and intellectual degradation and decay, and the steady decline is inter rupted at intervals by resistless impulses of violence and brutality. The nature of the parent, when perverted by the drug, is transmitted to the offspring, and the inveterate vice, operating through genera tions, is said to account for the brutality of certain races of Indians, notably the Quichas and Aimaras of the Bolivian fastnesses.—Washington Cor. Chicago Herald. At the Battle of Gettysburg. Very few civilians can rid their minds, even when they knew better, of the idea that any one present at a battle must see the whole or a large part of it, or at the least a very large amount of smoke and fighting. It is marvelous how very little any one individual sees of any one given battle, though he may in the very thick of the fighting, or evert at the headquar ters of the command:r in chief. I real ized that fully on the present occasion, for although standing; on one of the most advantageous spots to witness a portion of the fight, with the valley and town of Gettysburg lying below me and the heights beyond in full view, I reflected that our line was twelve miles in length, of which on even a clear day, with no in tervening figures or smoke, I could at least only see about two miles. * Then again I had always supposed, as I am sure most other people suppose, that the commander In chief always took up a posi tion where, field glass in band, he could command a view of a large part tho action. Gen. Meade’s headquarter^rere in a slight depression in a dense wood, whence yon could see nothing a hundred yards off, and yet, strange to say, en pas sant, secluded as was this spot, the rebs hod ascertained the locality to a nicety and shelled it with such vigor and accu racy that in ten minutes no less than six teen horses belonging to the staff were . killed. The officers all escaped unhurt by seating themselves under the friendly shelter of hnge bowlders of granite, where taey laughed and chatted and enjoyed tho thing as a big joke while the shells shrieked and exploded beyond them.—Frank Bel le w in New York Mail and Express. The White Hair Crase. I suppose most people who walk along Broadway with their eye9 open cannot have failed to notice recently a remark able Increase in the number of young looking women with white hair that are to be met nowadays. I am myself the most credulous individual, and espfccially where lovely woman is concerned, it dis tresses me to find myself having the smallest donbt as to the genuineness of 1 everything about her. But it seemed to me so oild that such a number of white haired women appeared all at once that I was moved to make perquisition into the subject, and consulted an affable acquaint ance of mine who is what is styled a ton- 1 sorial artist. From him I learned that the white hair craze Is tbe latest fashionable fad, and that it is obtained by the same means that were employed to produce the daffodil colored tresses that have been so long in vogue, but which having been adopted by ladies of a certain class are now tabooed by society. Tho bleaching mixture is peroxide of hydrogen, which, when mixed with 25 per cent, of ammonia, will in two applications torn the blackest hair snow white by the simple process of destroying the coloring matter. Of course it is frightfully injurious to htadth, as it with ers the capillary tubes just as any other vegetable is shriveled by burning, but the ladies who use it don't mir.d ruining their health as long as they can be in the fashion.—New York Letter. Tb» Jerry U olid ere In Kouie. The jerry builder Is not to have it nil his own way in Rome. The municipality has at last interfered and declared that overgrown, decrepit, insanitary structure* are no longer to be rim np like mush rooms anti finished off, let and inhabited before the plaster is dry. The specula tors and contractors who have hitherto been monarchs of all they surveyed pro tested against this interference with the vested interests of dishonest workman ship; bnt the S. P. Q. R. will probably stand firm, the evil having grown to in tolerable and impossible dimensions. There is a grim satisfaction in knowing that the huge factories (for they resemble nothing else) which disgrace the Esquiline and the Prati dl CasteUo are not quite so permanent as the Colosseum, anil are scarcely more desirable as places of resi dence. They will rapidly crumble away, to be replaced, perhaps, with buildings more worthy of the Eternal City. But in the mean time, and for a generation or two at least, Rome is architecturally dis graced in the eyes of the civilized world. —Pall Mall Gazette. Uis Sunday Nome. “I once knew a sea captain who came from about here,” he continued in a lighter strain, “who had an encounter , with a shark in his youth and lost his nose, and for the sake of harmony rather than vanity he had a tin false nose made to look as much like the lost feature as possible. When he went to sea he tried always to make his crew recognize tho Sabbath with appropriate respect and ob servance; he therefore ingenuously had a silver nose made for himself which he wore on Sunday, keeping the tin nose for week days, and the signal was always re spected, so far as he knew. Perhaps he never heard that the sailors always called the £ahbath “Silver nose day,” as they might well have easily been pardoned for doing.—Boston Post.

CARELESS DOCTORS. j — CRIMINALLY SERIOUS SLIPS MADE j IN WRITING PRESCRIPTIONS. Physicians and Not Druggists, Generally to niame for Accidents in Putting Up Medicines—How Mistakes Frequently Oceur—Another Evil. How often do we hear of ft fatal error made by some sleepy or negligent druggist's clerk, compounding morphine for quinine, laud- j a: mm for paregoric or oxalic acid for Epsom salts. How seldom do we hear of toe criminal carelessness or murderous errors made by physicians themselves in writiug their pro scriptions. I am satisfied, after careful ex amination, that the latter exceed the former ten to one, and that the services of the coroner are uot oftener required is due alone to a fact notorious in the profession, that a competent druggist carefully studies every prescription calling for powerful drugs, and himself corrects the doctor’s mistakes. One serious error by a druggist winds up bis busi ness in rapid order. There is no one to staud between the incompetent druggist and his vic tim, but the careless doctor can depend with reasonable assurance upon the strong prob ability that if his figures are wrong and the dose of the drug is doable what it should be, the pharmacist’s trained eye will detect the slip or the ignorance and put in the right quantity. I asked a prominent druggist the other day if he often had to correct prescriptions. Ho smiled. “I never correct a physician’s pre scription,” he replied. “My business is phar macy, not medicine.” “But in case you got an order calling for ten grains of strychnine, to be taken at oncer “I would uot fill it. 1 would send it back to the physician with a polite note of inquiry. That would be the retort courteous.” ‘•Do you examine all prescriptions you compound with a view to possible errors?” “Certainly. Every druggist is comjielled to do that in self protection. For example, here is a prescription sent here a few weeks ago. “Now this, as you see, called for twenty pills of sulphate of morphine, gelatine coated, [ each to coutain two grains.” “Did you refuse it!” “No, I filled it—and there was no funeral followed. I gave ten two-grain pills of sul phate of quinine, gelatine coated, for I knew that to be what the physician intended to prescribe. He is getting a little old now and sometimes makes a slip of that kind, but we always manage to set it right. About four months ago oue of my clerks brought me a prescription calling for one gramme of bi chloride of mercury, or corrosive sublimate, in eight pills. A gramme is sixteen grains, which would have made the dose two grains in each pill—enough to kill an elephant. I sent the prescription to the physician. He erased gramme and wrote grain, even then prescribing the maximum dose of the drug— one-eighth of a grain.” “Could not gramme be easily mistaken for graiuf’ • -Most easily. Gramme is usually abbrevi ated thus, ‘gin.,’ while grain is ‘gr.’ Many physicians use the metric system, and specify the weight in grammes. Now, if only one drug is ordered the sign ‘gui.’ may easily be read ‘gr.,' and the patient will get only one sixteenth of the amount iuteuded, or, vice versa, he may get sixteen times too much. The latter case is not so probable, for the druggist’s knowledge of doses would inter fere. But such a prescription falling into the hands of an ignorant clerk could easily furnish business for the undertaker and no one be the wiser.” “How often is the judgment of the druggist i called iuto play over such questions!” “With us it is a matter of almost daily oc currence, but of course wo handle a large number of prescriptions. Mast of the puzzles are due to the wretched handwriting affected by some doctors." I asked another leading uptown druggist concerning his exjierience with errors in pre scriptions. “They have numbered hundreds,” ho said, “but as wo invariably refer them back when illegible or calling for more than the maxi mum dose given in the dispensatory the con sequence does not fall upon the patient.” “How do the doctors tiebave when advised of their mistakes!” “Some take it kindly; others try to bluff the case through by saying that heroic doses were required; others get angry. I sent one prescription back to an eminent professor in this city. It called for half grain of strych nine to the dose. He tore it up, withdrew hi3 patronage and wrote us an indignant let ter, claiming that the prescription called for only 1-23 of a grain. He hail destroyed our evidence and there the matter ended. One night I got a prescription calling for 130 grains of iodido uf potassium in three pow ders, one to be taken every four hours. The regular dose of iodide is from five to ten grains. I sent a messenger to inquire, and the rgply was the erasure of ‘iodide’ and the substitution of ‘bromide.’ The least. conse quence of the iodide would have been’a furi ous eruption all over the patient, to which certainly his malady would not justly have entitled him, as he was suffering from de lirium tremens.” “Do you have muth trouble with quacks!” “No. Quacks usually give very simple and harmless remedies. They know their incom petence and constantly fear arrest for mal practice should an accident occur. The quack, as a rule, confines himself to light cathartics, tonics and lotions, giving a child's do e to an adult and trusting to luck and na ture to effect a cure. Most of them compound their own nostrums and thus make double profit, besides avoiding the placing of their errors on record. It is tho regular physician and the physician of high standing who is most apt to be careless. ” Another evil to which n:y attention was called is the habit of some physicians instead of specifying the dose and the time for its repetition, to give simply this general order: “To be used as directed.” Perhaps several medicines have been ordered. The invalid may be in charge of an iguorant or forgetful nurse to whom this gives discretionary pow ers which may easily Inscome fatal. I saw myself a prescription calling for Majondie's solution of morphia and marked in this way. Was not this criminal carelessness! Medicines are often kept in tho household after tho illness for which they were pre scribed has terminated. The direction of the physician has long since been forgotten. Another member of the family, perhaps a Child, is taken down with some jietty com plaint, and the quondam patient prescribes a dose of the remedy used in his own case. How much shall he give? He looks at the bot tle: “Use as directed.” He thinks he remem bers having taken u tablespoocful, so be ad ministers that quantity. The sufferer grows rapidly worse. The doctor is sent for aud finds a case of morphine poisoning. Tho bottle is produced. The doctor .secs “Use as directed,” and discreetly holds his peace. Perhaps death follows, and no one is tho wiser.—New York World. Daniel J. Rudd conducts, at Cincinnati, the only colored Roman Catholic newspajier In the United States.
