BORIC ACID BORAX).
It is An Antiseptic, Very Mild But

I can remember Well when one
pound of boric acid, or boracio
acid, ns it was originally named,
was a sufficient stock to last a
druggist for a year. Then anti
septis was almost unknown and
boric acid was only used for eye
washes. Its qualities were little
understood. Now twenty pounds
is not a large order and is soon
dispensed, some of it going out
in pound cartons.
Horae acid is found impure in
nature, either alone or in chemi
cal combination with other ole
incuts. It is found in some min
eral waters and can lm obtained
from sea water. It can also be
prepared chemically from any of
the borates, but the principal
source of supply for this country
is the native borax mines of Cali
fornia, and as these mines are
controlled by the Pacific Coast
Borax Co., of *'20 mule-team"
notoriety, so also they poetically |
control the market and furnish
the supply of boric acid.
Boric acid is an exceedingly
weak acid, even when we use
the word “acid” in the ehemi
■•al sense. As the word acid is
used by the public it does not
apply to boric acid at all. The J
chemist calls it boric acid he-!
cause it belongs by its nature and
composition to the acid class of(
chemicals nad not to the basic or
This drug is rarely used for in
ternal medication. It was
thought at one time that it would
prove a good intestinal antisep
tic, but it did not meet expecta
tions. While it is classed as non
poisonous, it has its dangers in
over-doses when given internally.
It has been abandoned as an in
ternal remedy, but its field is
large enough as an external rem

other germicides more active

cause they are cfficint in all
hands and their is no element o£
danger in either. I advised you
to put peroxide of hydrogen iu
your medicine closet, and I also
advise you strongly to add powd
ered boric acid to your stock;
with these two you can give effi
cient “first aid” in any ease of
wounds or cuts. You can treat
intelligently any sore or abscess

Many healing powders are to
be had that contain boric acid.
Some of these are much more ef
fective and quicker in their act
ion. This is especially true of
veterinary healing powders, be
cause it is not necessary to be
careful about the odor of a vet
erinary powder and with that
restraint removed it is easy to
compound an antisceptic that
combines the quick, energetic, act
ion and the continuous effect.
Boric acid is odorless, which is
another of its good qualities. As
an ey* wash or lotion.it is unique
because here again it is exceed
ingly beneficial in its action, but
without a single element of dan
ger. “What! No danger as to

it is self-limited by its soluabil

five per rent. You can dissolve
more by beating, but it will crys
tal izc out in cooling. The cold
watur solution is strong enough
to be effective for general use
but entirely inside the danger
limit. Such a solution can be
used with benefit in nearly all
cases of sore eyes from the irri
iHtion of grippe or head colds to

dinner was enjoyed, after which
all attended the afternoon ses
sion of the Chautauqua. All had
an enjoyable time.
The Chautauqua has come
and gone. While it was not a
seven-days-wonder, and there are
those who are wont to kick be
cause it did not satisfy all their
extravagant expectations, it was
good. The class of entertain
ments provided graded high.
The management is to be congrat
ulated upon having provided a
program, remarkably clean, and
wholesome. It was free from
anything that might offend the
most fastidious, and yet in the
whole, reasonably within the
range of those who made up the
large bulk of listeners. We are
only sorry to learn that the en
terprise is not a financial suc
cess. It is unfortunate that
cheap and often vile amusements
pay well, while attractions th^t
are for the edification of the
public go broke.
New Paper For Salem.
We had occasion to go to Sa
lem last week in the interest of
a capable newspaper man who
is looking for a new location.
We interviewed some half score
of Salem’s best business men
and were most favorably im
pressed with the outlook there
for a new plant. We had abso
lutely no desire to take advan- ^
tage of the men interested in the
Index and were everywher giv
en to understand that the Index
had fully decided to go out of
This week we received a letter
from Messrs Kjckham and Twist
severely arraigning us for our
temerity, and asking for an ex
planation. We trust this will be
self-explanatory to both the pro- *
prietors of the Index and to the
citizens of Salem. We sent two
men to Salem Wednesday to in
terview the Index and if possi
ble arrange an understanding.
Our friend will start a paper in
Salem if Salem so desires, if not
wanted, of course we will keep
hands off. The Tribune sought
to do our sister town in her mis
fortune agood turn and sincere
ly hopes that our intentions will
not be misunderstood.
Valuable Horse Cut.
While Simon Beaehy was
crossing the bottom, in going
around the big dredge, which was

night he ran into a fence, severe

the time Mr. Beaehy was able
to reach town and get help the
horse had nearly hied to death.
The wound is healing nicely but
will leave the animal a marked -
animal for life. Mr. Beaehy
has sued the Drainage Board for
Notice to the Public.
