CHILD CULTURE SERIES NO. 6 "Children and Patent Medi cines" by Prof. Hollis, of V. C. Normal School. A sufficient number of analyses of patent medicines have now been made by government and other chem ists to warrant this department to sound a note of warning against the Patent Medicine Habit. All Patent Medicines are not dangerous some are, and the general public does not discriminate—frequently has no means of doing so. The contents of harmful remedies like Peruna have been so frequently exposed as to make the name a byword—and yet this alcohol ic beverage continues to be sold at the drug stores as medicines and contin ues its absurd advertisements. After examining the testimony in a suit brought against a druggist in Syra cuse, N. Y., for selling Peruna with out a saloon license, Prof. Ladd con' eludes: just a "Peruna would seem to be plain, mild 'booze', a form of intoxi cating beverage, not a medicine and not a cure for the diseases clamed." It is a regrettable fact that the drug stores do not help in the campaign against patent medicines. They have taken no part in,: the exposures of fraudulent remedies. Instead they al low immense window displays to be made advertising the concoction they send circulars and almanacs through the mail to their patrons, and appar ently are not interested in the cam paign now being so successfully waged by welfare organizations against the patent medicine evil. In many states the better class of drug stores are getting out of the sal oon business and the cigarette busi ness, and to that extent restoring the ancient respect with which their high oalling was regarded if they should take a further step and refuse to sell the more vicious of the patent medi cines, they would remove the oppro brium that now attaches to their busi ness and be among the most honored and beneficent of callings. Dr. Hora tio Wood, Jr., (Popular Soience Monthly for June, 1906) estimates that every year $100,000,000 are spent in the U. S. alone for patent medicines. The worst of these are the Pain Kill era, containing cocaine or morphine as the soothing principle, and the ex hilators containing alcohol or strych nine, "to make you feel good when you take it and miserable when you don't." From the standpoint of Child Wel fare, Dr. Wood declares the soothing ayrup9 to be the most diabolical of all, aa they are loaded down with morphine. The Ladies Home Journal of April, 1908, cites the case of a child that beeame peevish and cross. At eight o'clook the mother gave the child the first dose of medicine, at two or three o'clock in the afternoon the child died. The chemist found morphine in the medicine. "Two infants, twin babies, three months old, were given a dose of so called soothing sleeping 'syrup' one night because they would not sleep. The next morning the mother found both babies dead. The coroner's in quest of the stomachs of the babies disclosed the fact that they had died from the opium contained in the 'Soothing' medicine." In England the Pharmacy Act oom pels Mrs. Winslow's Soothing Syrup to be plainly labeled Poison. How many of our readers know of instances where patent medicines re 2nd, 1911! suited in harm? Mere opinions or surmises would be of little value, but well authenticated cases, through chemical analysis or coroner's or physioian's testimony would be of real value in deterring others from the Patent" Medicine Evil, The government has published a useful bulletin dealing with habit forming agents, that should be widely read by people everywhere. Send to the Department of Agriculture, Wash ington, D. C., for Farmers Bulletin No. 383. Prof. E. E. Ladd, the famous Pure Food Commissioner of North Dakota, included the following page in one of his recent bulletins: "The Baby-Killers." The Food Department of the United States has published a list of medical preparations, "soothing syrups", which are referred to as "baby-kill ers". The use of this class of pro ducts is oertainly to be condemned, and the list as given by the U. S. Gov ernment chemists includes the follow ing preparations: Mrs. Winslow's Soothing Syrup (morphine sulphate). Children's Comfort (morphine sul phate). Dr. Fehy's Pepsin A.nodyne Com pound (morphine sulphate). Dr. Fahrney's Teething Syrup (mor phine and chloroform). Dr. Fowler's Strawberry and Pep permint Mixture (morphine). Dr. Grove's Anodyne for Infants (morphine and sulphate). Hooper's Anodyne, Infants Brand (morphine hydrochloride). Jadway's Elixir for Infants (oodeine) Dr. James' Soothing Syrup (heroin) Koepp's Baby's Friend (morphine sulphate). Dr. Miller's Anodyne for Babies (morphine tulphate and chlorahy drate). Dr. Moffett's Teethina Teething Powders (powdered opium). Vtctor Infant Relief (chloroform and cannabis indica). Readers, what do you think of a list like this? Are you using them, feed ing the little ones opium, morphine, chloral hydrate and the like products in order to stupefy and not help their suffering? Do you know that of all the minor ailments colds are by far the most dangerous? It is not the cold itself that you need to fear, but the serious diseases that it often leads to. Most of these are known as germ diseases, Pneumonia and consumption are among them. Why not take Cham berlain's Cough Remedy and cuie your cold while you can? For sale by all dealers. HOPE, COLGATE. PAULSON EXPLAINS Gives very good reasons for position taken in Cowan Proceedings. The following letter frotn our Representative, written in re sponse to our request for the reasons he had in taking the po sition he did in the Cowan case, clears Mr. Paulson of any charge of bad faith in the matter. After hearing the evidence he voted for impeachment. Bismarck, N. D., Feb. 28th', 1911. The Hope Pioneer, Hope, N. D. Gentlemen:— ain ready to explain my vote on the Cowan matter, to-wit: When this matter was first brought up I voted that the impeachment charge should be entertained and that a sub-committee be appointed to take the evidence and report their findings to the whole House. This action was taken and the Speaker of the House, whom I have every reason to believe acted honestly, appointed what he should be strong enough thought an honest committee for the above purpose. This committee, after taking the evidence, reported back by a six to one vote that further proceed ings be indefinitely postponed. Now in all fairness how should I have vot ed? Should I have disregarded the opinion of six honest men, sworn to do their duty, and for whom I voted to have delegated to act for me in the matter, or should I have voted against their report? I deemed they were bet ter able to judge of the matter than I, and therefore stood by them, though I voted to have the evidence sub mitted, which motion was lost. If in your estimation there has been a mis carriage of justice, who is to blame in the matter, the Speaker, the investi gating committee, or I. I leave that PIANO If you have not purchased a num ber, it will pay you to investigate. OTHER PRIZES ARE ALSO OFFERED Mr. Farmer! Mr. Farmer!

We also have Fosston and Superior Fanning Mills (which can't be beaten) Oliver and Janesville Plows Winona, Old Hickory and Peter Schuttler Wagons Empire and United States Cream Separators and a full line of Harness and Collars. Come in any time as we will be glad to meet you. Major Implement Co. No. 49 for you to decide. Another of my reasons for voting against the impeachment proceeding is that every representative from Mr. Cowan'a judicial diatrict voted against the impeachment at the beginning and fought the same on the floor. Are they not better able to judge condi tions than an outsider? Then, too, Mr. Cowan has been twice elected, with all the evidence here used against him, and has been elected by a large majority each time. These reasons made this matter look to me like a political fight pure and simple and I do not think it wise for this Assembly to settle political debts of different sections. I want to assure you that I acted honestly in this matter and have not been governed by any one but my own judgment, and I am ready to submit to your judgment in the matter. Since this vote was taken I have been ac cused of being lined up with McKen zie. I do not care to go into that mat ter, but will submit my record in that matter to anyone. I am not governed by any one man and have aeted for what I deemed the best for all the peo ple of the state. On a motion for reconsideration, the House is now taking the evidence taken by the committee, and should it appear that the evidence submitted to warrant impeachment proceedings against Judge Cowan, I will not hesitate to vote for his impeachment, but should there not be enough I see no reason to put the State to the enormous ex pense of trying the impeachment pro ceedings. I believe this case is like all other criminal cases, that a man is innocent until proved guilty, or as in this case that there should be enough evidence to believe that the man will be found guilty by further proceed ings. Assuring you that I was glad to re oeive your communication and trust that I may be further favored in hear ing from you. Very truly yours, Ole Paulson, Representative 16th District.
