TINKERS WITH THE LAWS
DR MORSMAN ON DRUG STORE
TRAFFIC IN LIQUORS.
Drug Stores With "Silk Fronts and
Calico Backs Laws, Good or
Bad. Must Be Obeyed.
I believe that every citizen should
obey the laws. No matter whether
it concerns ids pocket or Ids per
son No matter whether it is a
good iaw or a bad one (and we have
plenty of bad most, it should be
obeyed. It Is better to obey and
try for Its repeal than to have It
become a dead letter, obeyed by
none, cumbering the statutes, and
causing disrespet t for all law. The
enforcement ot a had law will1 soon
lead to Its repeal.
For years law i,• alters have tinker
ed with the liquor laws and because
fanaticism, politics and cupidity have
been active wile-pullers In the lobby
of every legislature in all the states,
little good bus come of the tinkering.
Believing that the i Itl/en should
obey the law that applies to Idm.as
an Individual. It naturally follows
that 1 believe the druggist should
obey the laws that apply to Ids busi
ness. and I have only contempt for
the druggist who makes of his oeetipa*
lion a respectable front behind which
lie can hide an illegitimate (raffia.
A lady once described a house with
only tin sire >| frontage of stone as
a "silk front and calico back." Some
drug stores are like that. They are
drug store trouts and saloon backs.
The sale of whiskey is the principal
industry and the drug store Is a
bluff. Such a druggist is unspeak
abl> contemptible, lie is prostitut
ing ids profession and debasing his
fellow men. He Is worse than the
saloon man because he does Ids dirty
work under cover. He is a man to
be slimmed by all right-minded people
and does not deserve patronage. 10 v

The honest druggist handles liquors
because ho considers them as medi
cines, and as such his customers re
quii» them of him when the need
arises If ho does not have them
the customer will go to the drug
stor-' that does k>'ep them and ho
may income a customer of that store
for other goods; so that it becomes
a compulsory matter.
It is probable that he would be
very glad to quit handling those
goods if lie could, because of the
I -val conditions that make him
much trouble and risk and also be
*:t is it is not a profitable business
for him if he handles it ill a legi
timate manner When the business

ram ntal, culinary and mechanical
purposes, his sales will he small,

I tvdleve ninety per cent of the
better class druggists would get out
of it if they could. The Sunday pro
hibition (local) applies to 'he drug
gist and the eight o'clock dosing
law (state) applies to the druggist
just the same as to the saloon.
These tr excellent laws as ap
plied to the saloon, lint the need for!
medicine is just as apt to occur Sun- j
day or after eight o’clock as at any
other time, and the druggist is plac
ed in a hard position when he must
either refuse the request of-a custom
er in a necessary ease or violate the
Thir seems like a serious defect in
each of these laws and one that
could be easily remedied. I do not
believe that the average druggist is
dishonest ci tricky. If that is the
ease it is certainly true that one hon
est rue could be found in any town
" ho could safely be appointed emer
gency dispenser. But our beautiful
political system is in the way. No
appointment is ever made except for

eliminate the saloon. It is only a
question of a few years, and when
that, is done the principal cause of

of topers every year. When the

NEW INVENTION OF THIEVES
Philadelphia Shoplifters Equipped
With a Really Ingenious
Wholesale thefts from a score or
more of Philadelphia stores were dis
covered recently through the arrest
of two men and a young woman, and
from $3,000 to $1,000 worth of stolen
goods were recovered In their room.
The detectives entered tho room
I Just as the three were unloading
goods of various kinds from the Mg
paper boxes, Hawley, upon whom
| cards were later found giving the
name ‘‘William Halley, character
j comedian,” demanded to know who
: they were and what they wanted. Tho
i detectives soon enlightened him and
| told the three they were under ar
The boxes were especially arranged
for making thefts easy, the arrange
ment being something new even In
the varied arts of shoplifters. A hole
about 12 inches long and 5 inches
wide was cut in each box, and the
box was so carried under (he arm
with this hole next to the side of the
body •that It was almost impossible
to discover it. Tli accused would
cnch buy some trifling article and pay
for It. The bill was then taken and
attached to the 1-ox in such a way
: that it could bi e n readily by the
salespeople at I t:ore detectives.
Each of the Hi! v< . would operate at
different counteras a rule, but
sometimes ou ■ of the men and the
wonnap would operate together.

A good story i.: told of the late A.
H. Wyant, the artist. A young man
called at Mr. Wyant's studio one day
and asked him to give him some les
sons in painting. "What can you do?”
asked the old artist "Oh. I can finish
a landscape first-rate, but I never know
how to begin one!" was the reply. “If
that's so,” remarked the veteran
painter, solemnly, "I think we can
easily make a bargain. 1 find that I
can begin a picture without any trou
ble; but it Is a dreadful task to finish
It. satisfactorily. Now. If you’ll teach
me how to finish my pictures, I'll tench
you how to begin yours." Then the old
gentleman went back to work, and the
young artist went away to think over
Picks Up Pawned Medals.
A man was peering through the win

avenue, making notes on the back of
an envelope, relates the New York
Sun. He said to a bystander who was
looking at him Inquiringly: "See those
old war medals in there? I go around
town making lists of those that are
for sale. I send them over to various
dealers In Europe who sell them to
collectors. These dealers mako of
