Only a few years ago coal tar was
looked upon as & "waste product." At
the present day, however, it is no longer
treated as snch, for through the almost
ceaseless activity of the German chem
ists enough new remedies have already
been obtained from coal tar to fill a good
About the first one of thtte products
to attract any considerable attention was
•ntipyrine, which made its appearance
aome 10 years aj?o and became popular
ly known during the epidemic of la
grippe of several years ago. This was
aoan followed by antifebrin, which, al
though it had a new name, TO an older
drug than antipyrine, having been
known for several years aft acetanilid, a
name derived from the substances from
which it was made. It is prepared by
the action of acetic acid on aniline oil.
The acetanilid is now used by many
doctors in preference to anti pyrine. The
principal features in its favor are small
nan of doae, less danger of a depressing
effect on the heart and cheapness. The
price of acetanilid is hardly one-tenth
that of antipyrine.
Phenacetine is another drug of this
class which has met with much success
and apparently deservedly so. It has
been used with excellent results in the
treatment of influenza, the hyperesthe
sia or soreness of la grippe and rheuma
tism, both muscular and articular.
The drug is often combined with salol
and quinine in
the treatment of the above
mentioned affections, and the results re
ported are invariably of a very satisfac
One of the most interesting of the coal
tar derivatives is saccharin, a substance
that is 280 times sweeter than sugar. The
medicinal properties of this drug are an
tiseptic and sweetening. As a substi
tute for sugar it is used in the dietary
of gout, diabetes and all diseases in
which saccharine foods are contraindi
cated. It has also been used to disguise
the taste of medicines for children. To
give one an idea of the sweetening power
of saccharin it is only necessary to say
that one grain of the drug will sweeten
an ordinary cup of coffee. If sugar were
used at least a half ounce or a table
spoonful, would be necessary.
In tjie treatmeqt of mental disease sul
phonal is considered a very valuable
agent. The drug could hardly have
achieved success had it been introduced
under its chemical name, which contains
just two letters more than the entire al
is the "jawbreaker"' by which it is known
The value of gulphonal as a Immotic
jeems to be pretty well It
has been used with marked success in
the treatment of sleeplessness caused by
fatigue and worry. It is also said to be
of equal service in cases of acute mania,
imbecility, melancholia, dementia, epi
lepsy, hallucinations and acute alcohol
ism. One observer stated that in every
"case treated "the slumber was accom
panied by no disturbances of circulation
or respiration and lasted from two to
five hours or longer." From 15 to 30
grains are usually given as a dose. Even
in very large doses the digestive func
tions are not disordered, and there are no
disagreeable after effects beyond a slight
drowsiness and a feeling of lassitude the
In combination with fiyoscine hydro
broinate. sulphonal is said to form a very
good treatment for the insomnia and
Teetlessness of opium habitues. When a
ooal tar product is introduced, it can al
most be taken for granted that one of the
four medicinal properties is claimed for
]£. The four properties are antipyretic,
analgesic, antiseptic and hypnotic.
Trioxiul, which hails from Elberfeld,
Germany, is brought forward as a candi
date for therapeutic favor. It possesses
tits last named property. Brie of Bonn
has found trional of value in treating in
somnia or hysteria and neurasthenia in
cases of great obstinacy and which had
failed to respond to any other treatment.
In maniacal excitement and paralytic
mania, he reports excellent results in 80
j*r cent of the cases treated.
Salophen, although not distinctly a
"coal tar derivative," is partly so, as one
ol its component parte, carbolic acid, is
derived from coal tar. It is said to be a
valuable remedy in the treatment of ar
ticular rheumatism. The dose is from
to 20 grains three or four times a day.
The very latest in the long line of coal
tar products is gallanol. It is prepared
%jy boiling tannin with aniline. It is in
tfoduced as a substitute for pyrogallic
acid, having the advantage of being non
"toxic and nonirritant. In the treatment
of skin affections it has been used with

Two Important Decisions Affecting
Property Worth $1,000,000.
WASHINGTON, Oct. 0.—Secretary
8mith has decided two important test
cases involving |1,000,000 worth of pine
land homesteads in the Ashland, Wis.,
land district. One case is in the Omaha
limits, and the other in the Wisconsin
Central limits. In both cases the land
was given to railroads and subse
quently withdrawn and thrown open
for settlement. In the case of Fred
S. Newell vs. J. J. Hussey, involving
the ownership of the southeast quarter
of section 17, township 49, range 7,
Ashland district, Newell moved for a
rehearing, which was denied. In re
viewing the case, the secretary decided
the question whether settlers who went
on lands which had been expressly
withdrawn from settlement acquired
any shadow of right of priority in the
negative. This means that all those
settlers who went on Omaha limits
lands before they were opened for set
tlement had no more right to file upon
them than any person who called
at the land office on the day
of opening. There are many cases in
volved in this question which are sow
at good as decided. The other case is
Arthur O. Bene vs. Peter Pend«rgas|,
involving the northeast quarter, section
1ft, township 49, range 9. The principal
point Involved in this case is the bona
fides of settlers. It appears that Rene
made improvements but never actua ly
lived on the land, his evident intention
being to hold the land by a technical
fulfillment of the law. There are also
other minor matters involved, making
it a test case for many others. Pender

No New tawa
HAMBURG, Oct 6.—No fresh case of
Cholera has developed here in the last
Doenmenta of the First Fourteen Coa
irsuei Found In the Senate Basement.
The former assistant librarian of the
senate, Mr. E. T. Cressey, has made a
most important discoveryttmong the 40,
000 volumes, supposed to be useless,
which have been accumulating for years
in the basement of the senate Wing of
the capitol. After a search of months
he has found 79 volumes, hitherto sup
posed not to be in existence, which com
prise the senate documents of the first 13
congresses and the house documents of
the first nine. The Congressional library,
the Boston public library and the British
museum are all without these, Mil the
addition of them to the senate library
makes it the most valuable in the world
for references of the proceedings, debates
and documents of congress.
Almost from the adoption of the con
stitution all documents of the senate
and the house have been set aside in
small numbers for the secretary of the
senate. These were kept in bad order,
if kept at all, and were scattered in vari
ous places. Just after the war, how
ever, they ft-°ire all collected into the
senate library, which occupies a num
ber of almost impenetrable recesses in
tke upper p?rt cf the Ben^e wing and
also ali eqtial number of still more diffi
cult nooks and comers in the basement
near the heating machinery. This last
was a dry and safe place, but hardly any
body ever ventured within its door3.
The 40,000 volumes accumulated there
were all supposed to be extra ones. Mr.
Cressey's discovery shows that they con
tain perhaps the richest single treasure
in the country.
The volumes ar in a good stafte of
preservation, although they and toacy
others stacked in this utM. xplore ret mil
show traces of the worms. Many of the
backs indeed are entirely gone. b$t the
pages are intact, and the senate lij^ary
may now boast that it has for reference
complete documents of the 6 'nate «lnd
the house, all except those of the senate
of the Second congress.
A few of the 79 volumes are bound in
manuscript, just as they came from the
authors, and some of them, as it is be
lieved, have never been printed. Dur
ing the first 14 congresses none of the
documents was numbered, nor was their
character indicated by marks. Thus
each must carefully be examined to as
certain whether it is an executive or a
miscellaneous document or a committee
