Magazine Writer Urges Hospitals for
Those Afflicted With Deplor
able Habit.
The need of hospitals, private and
public, for scientific treatment of drug
addiction, is urgent, writes Charles B.
Towns in the Century, discussing
"The Drug Taker and the Physician.”
There has never been a state or city
Hospital meant primarily for such pa
dents. though some have been receiv
ed and treated at the Massachusetts
itate hospital for dipsomaniacs and
inebriates. The state and city make
provision for treating the insanity
that arises in advanced stages of the
Habit, or in patients forcibly deprived
*f their craving, but not for treating
the habit itself.
Even the inebriate colony which is
to be established by the state of New
Fork will in no way provide for the
drug taker. This is probably because
He does not come so obviously within
the protective province of the state as
does the alcoholic, since he is not
turbulent and does not break the law
except in order to obtain his cus
tomary dose. At the present time,
with all the enormous drug consump
tion, there is no provision by state or
city, or by charity organization, for
the special treatment of the drug
taker, although more than any other
Bick person in the world is he abso
lutely unable to care for himself.
It will be seen that the physician is
zhe proper agent to deal with the evil
under discussion, both in safeguard
ing the patient from acquiring the
habit and in correcting the habit when
once it has been asquired. He must,
then, be thoroughly equipped for the
duty. Every year doctors are being
graduated from our medical schools
with an intimate knowledge of dis
eases that they will rarely encounter,
but without any knowledge of drug
and alcoholic conditions, which await
them in appalling numbers. They
must realize their responsibility in
prescribing the habit-forming drugs
and must be qualified to deal with the
results of their misuse.
Its Cost Paid Back Many Times Over
and Now It Demands Self
The territory of Alaska has yielded
to its owner, the United States, $200,
000,000 in mineral wealth; in fish and
furs this bleak possession has yielded
$222,710,036, and it has paid directly
into the United States treasury $14,
792,461 in cash. Adding the tribute
of fisheries, furs, minerals and cash,
the people of the United States have
within forty-two years taken $444,102,
600 out of Alaska.
This territory was bought from Rus
sia in 1867 for $7,200,000. The figures
of wealth yielded in return for this
investment, according to the testi
mony of Delegate James Wickersham
- before the committee on territories
on March 29 last, were supplied to him
by the treasury department. Costing
but $7,200,000, and an average of
$200,000 annually for the maintenance
of its government, the territory has re
turned to the United States $10,000,
000 a year. Its people now petition
the government to enable them to con
serve for their own use its vast and
yet undeveloped resources. They
want to govern themselves, and ulti
mately to achieve statehood. The na
tion has always taken tribute from
Alaska, while retaining its own wealth
for itself and its individual states.
Why not now give Alaska a chance 7
—New York Times.
Pride of East and West.
The visitor from the far west who
refuses to be impressed by some of
the town’s proudest exhibits is one of
the New Yorker’s greatest trials, and
often the latter discovers that the at
titude of his guest is based upon con
siderably more than a mere assump
tion of superiority. A few days ago a
tnan wha piloting a newly arrived
friend about town, and made the
mistake, upon coming out on Fifth
avenue, of calling attention, with the
maximum of pride, to the line of mo
tor ’buses spinning up and down that
thoroughfare. To his amazement the
man from the Golden Gate refused to
be impressed. “Yes, they're all right,”
he remarked, “but you should see the
ones we have at home. How far do
these run, anyway? We have an au
tomobile stage line between Sacra
mento and Folsom, with ’buses that
carry 24 passengers and baggage and
make about 90 miles a day. They
run over country roads at 20 miles an
hour, and a good many of our people
are coming to prefer them to the rail
road. Yes, these are nice ’buses, but
they look sort of funny beside ours.”
—New York Tribune.
Retain Their Employes.
More than two thousand active em
ployes have been on an eastern rail
road’s pay roll more than forty years,
and over one thousand five hundred
men who served forty years or more
are now receiving pensions. It has
more than four thousand active em
ployes between the ages of sixty and
seventy years. There are on the pay
roll or pension list of the railroad
nearly five hundred men who have
been with the road over fifty years.
Her Condemnation.
Sarah. Bernhardt is quoted as paying
her respects to Isabella of Bavaria,
consort of Charles VI of France, in
this wise: "It is to her that we owe
the invention of the corset, but it
was she. too, who sold the half of
France to England. There was no

"It does,” growled Mr. Jawback, “but
It seems we can’t. We’re fighting like

Ideal Match.
“But,” says the candid friend, “I
cannot for the life of me understand
why you intend to marry him. He
has a wooden leg and the other one is
bowed, and he only has one eye and
is bald in patches, and positively has
the ugliest whiskers I ever saw on a
man. Why, no woman in her senses
could love him!”
“We shall be ideally happy,” ex
plains the beauteous girl. “I shall
never be jealous of him for the rea
sons you have cited. And he will al
ways be so glad and proud that I mar
ried him that he won't care how much
I flirt.”—Judge's Library.
They Were Surprised.
“Jinks, who has just returned from
4 year’s globe trotting, is very wroth
at the local paper.”
“Oh, the editor wrote a column arti

‘His many friends were surprised that
he is unchanged.’ but the compositor
left the ‘c‘ out of ‘unchanged.’ ”

Patrick, lately over, was working in

put his mouth to the transmitter, just

A great many patrons forget to put

Why don’t some of the automobile
owners fasten the road drag to their

could cover a great many miles more

would be a big saving to your autos.
The carrier thinks that all roads will
be dragged with autoes instead of
horses soon. If autoes will pull the
plow, why not the drag?
