tP Just History
ANCIENT SHOP SOLD
Nothing but Drugs Ever Sold in
This London Pharmacy.
Worshipful Company of Apothecaries
Disposes of Its Historic Shop In .
City of London Established
In Seventeenth Century.
London. The Worshipful Cojapgny
of Apothecaries has sold its ancient
shop to a London firm of druggists.
It has been carried on by this city
company since early in the Seven
teenth century and was, as it were,
the classic druggist's shop, with its
discreet window of frosted glass the
apothecaries did not display their
wares the shop forms, the plain
facade behind which is hidden a dim
old courtyard and then the hall and
other rooms of the society. Almost
next door, In Water Lane, was the
Blackfriars theater,, where ghake
speare and Burbage played.
The society's prescriptions, formu
las and special preparations many
of them centuries old are taken over
by the new owners. The little fac
tory where the society makes drugs
wholesale, chiefly on government or
ders, has not changed hands yet.
The shop is a spacious place, lined
with mellow-looking old bottles,
gleaming warmly with gilt and color.
You look in vain for patent medicines
or any paraphernalia of the modern
chemist. It is all drugs and nothing
but drugs, and people who come in
with prescriptions are usually known
and addressed by their names. The
shop is leisurely and quiet, as befits
its pedigree. Many customers are
sorry that the company should be giv
ing up Its useful service of selling
sound drugs in these days when the
city companies rarely still perform
their original functions.
In the old days no apothecary could
open a shop in the city without a
license from the Apothecaries' Hall,
nor could he sell drugs that had not
been duly tested at the hall.
The old charter givs the company
the right to burn unwholesome drugs
in front of the offender's door. The
company Is one of three bodies en
titled to grant a medical degree. In
the early Eighteenth century there
was a fierce quarrel between the phy
sicians and the apothecaries over this,
and Doctor Garth In his dispensary
spoke rudely of the Apothecaries' Hall
as the place "where tyros take the
freedom out to kill."

senate would indicate.

MEXICO PICKING UP

Remarkable Progress -. Being
Made in Overcoming Illiteracy.
Night Schools in Capital Have Taught
Many Persons to Read and Write
Laboring Class Is Deeply
Interested.
Mexico City. Remarkable progress
Is being made in overcoming Illiteracy
In the capital, according to informa
tion obtained from the department of.
public education of the federal gov
ernment. During the first three months of the
present year approximately 15,000 per
sons of the lower class were taught
to read and write. This educational
work Ib being carried on largely by
means of night schools, which are of
themselves something of a novelty in
Mexico.
It is stated that interest on the part
of the laboring class in this education
al work is unbounded. They crowd
the schools to full capacity and there
are .hundreds who cannot as yet be
taken care of on account of the lack
of teachers and other facilities. .Men
and women of middle age vie with
sandal-footed youths to obtain enough
instruction to enable them to read and
write. In one of the larger schools
there is an average attendance of 800
persons.
The teaching of the fundamentals,
which is being done in the schools, is
supplemented by a series of educa
tional lectures that are given in mov
ing picture theaters on Sundays. So
successful has -been this plan of teach
ing the lowly natives the rudiments
of reading and writing in this city
that the department of public educa
tion plans to extend tne work to all
of the larger cities and many of the
smaller communities of the country.
President Alvaro Obregon has
shown a keen interest in this new
phase of education and has pledged
to provide the necessary financial
means for carrying it forward.

NEEDFUL KNOWLEDGE
Paris People Should Learn to De-
tect the Approach of Kidney
Disease
The symptoms of kidney trouble
are many. Disordered kidneys often
excreate a thick, cloudy,, offensive
urine, full of sediment, irregular of
passage or attended by a sensation
of scalding. The back may ache,
headaches and dizzy spells may oc
cur and the victim is often weighted
down by a feeling of languor and fa
tigue. Neglect these warnings and
there is danger: Delay often proves
fatal.
You can use no better endorsed
kidney remedy than Doan's Kidney
Pills. Here's Paris proof of their
merit.
Joe Kiely, proprietor shoe repair
shop, 617 Ferguson street, -says:
"Doan's Kidney Pills did me a
world of good and I take pleasure
in recommending them to anyone
suffering with kidney trouble. I was
a sufferer from kidney complaint
and my back ached most of the
time. My kidneys were weak and
the secretions were highly colored
and contained sediment. I lost my
sleep at night as there was" no let up
to the pain in my back. I got four
boxes of Doan's Kidney Pills at Ar
dery's Drug Store and used them.
They rid me of the trouble en
tirely." Price 60c, at all dealers. Don't
simply ask for a kidney remedy get

A MOUNTAIN HERO'S GRAVE
MARKED
He has written his name where all
can read, and at no time can human
hands efface." Thus reads a portion
of an inscription which appears on a
marker which will be erected at the
grave of Henry Hurst (1762-1844),
on a mountain top near the waters
of Wolf creek, at the corner of
Breathitt, Morgan and Wolf coun
ties. Henry Hurst was a revolution
ary soldier (the great grandfather
of Sam K. Kash, of Corbin), and
had some remarkable experiences in
that war. He was captured by the
enemy on four different occasions,
making his escape after slaying his
guard or guards, being a captive
only a short time. He fired and
blew up one of Cornwallis' maga
zines near Trenton and did other
daring deeds to harrass the enemy.
After the close of the war young
Hurst came to Kentucky and settled
in the eastern part of the State, and
lived until 1844. His wishes to be
buried on the mountain top
were carried out. The erec
tion of the marker monu
ment is at the instance of his
great grandson, Sam K. Kash, who
is at present holding a government
position in Washington, and who
was present at the exercises at the
grave on July 4, on which occasion
he delivered an appropriate oration
at the resting place of his ancestor
who was laid to rest there seventy-
eight years ago.
