IVAR HITS DRUG PRICES:
COLD BECOMES A LUXURY
Colds, chapped hands and headaches
will be luxuries too great for the poor
to indulge in this winter, and unless
you arc naturally beautiful it would
be well to cease to crave beauty. All
of this is because of the high prices
of drugs and cosmetics, caused by
the European war.
Quinine, the great "cure-all" for
ailments in the line of colds, malaria
and headache, has soared from 29
cents an ounce to ?2.50 an ounce and
grandmother must find some other
remedy for your winter disturbances.
Perhaps you will suggest cinchona
bark, the source of quinine, but prac
tically all of this Is grown in Japan,
and Japan is no longer sending the
bitter root to the United States. Some
months ago, it is said, German and
British American speculators bought
all the quinine on the New York
Neither can you fall back upo;i
glycerin- as a cheap remedy to ea3e
your cough, soften your chapped
hands or to keep the wood alcohol In
your automobile radiator from freez
ing. Its price has doubled.
Aspirin, remedy for headaches aod
colds and a general tonic, has ad
vanced from $6 to $10 a thousand tab
lets. It is practically off the market
at that and the few firms having it
will sell it only in small amounts.
Carbolic acid ,is also scarcely obtain
able. Most wholesale houses refuse
to make prices on it.
Nerve stimulants In which bromlil"
is used will cost two or three times
their former price. The amateur pho
tographer will notice a similar ad
vance in bromide chemicals. Hydro
chlnone, once 85 cents a pound, is
now priced at ?8.64. Many photo
graphic goods are entirely off th?
Acetanlllde, a headache reliever,
has advanced from $1.25 to $.4.25 a
pound. Where you once gave 40 cents
to rub the contents of a bottle of oil
of wintergreen into your rheumallc
joints, you will now have to pay six
times that amount
Farmers will find curing meats
more expensive than a year ago. Salt
peter having advanced from 12 to
30 cents a pound. Jewelers, too, are
affected by war, as chemically pure
syanide of potash, used in polish
ing silver and gold, cannot be ob
tained in the United States.
In short, the market price of all
imported drugs has advanced. Deli
cate face powders, rouges and per
fumes, such aB Paris alone supplies,
can be purchased only at half again
These higher prices of imported
cosmetics have not greatly decreased
their sale, say the Columbia dealers.
Many women prefer the Paris goods
even at the increased prices.

M. U. Goat, Former Tiger Mascot,
Goes on Hnnger Strike and Wins.
The English suffragettes are not the
only ones to use the hunger strike in
obtaining their ends. BUI, a large An
gora goat belonging to the veterinary
department of the University, has re
cently adopted their tactics In obtain
ing release from prison.
Bill, who was a Tiger mascot in his
younger days, recently developed a
roving disposition that made it necessary-
to confine him. Having witness
ed the Ames game in 1912, where he
took the part of the famous "Ames
Goat," he showed his knowledge of
'cotball, when he was first confined,
by a series of line plunges that sent
his keepers running to cover and
speedily gave him freedom.
Again confined, in stronger quarters,
he found his football ability useless.
It was then that he conceived his
hunger strike Idea. For more than a
week he refused to touch food and
water, although his favorite relishes
wore set before him. The only remedy
was to turn him out and he is once
more at large, preferring tin cans and
freedom to confinement with the "fat
of the land."
