" was his next question i told him san francisco to sydney, australia, fifty-two days out "captain, " he said, "i take charge of your vessel in the name of the german imperial navy " he gave an order in german and two german sailors sprang to the flag halyards and hauled down the stars and stripes and ran up the german ensign they carefully saved the american flag and the company's burgee and took them aboard the wolf afterwards as trophies our crew meantime had been lined up and searched for weapons among the things the boarding crew brought on board was a black case containing twenty pairs of handcuffs and three large bombs to blow the vessel to pieces with they didn't need the handcuffs, however after the lieutenant had gone through the ship's papers and found out all writingiculars regarding the beluga's cargo, he had his signal men wigwag the information to the commander of the wolf, which was standing by the commander, on finding out that i had a cargo of benzine, decided not to sink the vessel immediately, but to take on board essay three hundred paper for use in their hydroplane, as their supply was getting low wolfthe german auxiliary cruiser, raider and mine layer "wolf" leaving kiel on her fifteen-month cruise, november 21st, 1916in a short while we received instructions from the wolf to proceed due east for sixty miles and wait there for them the wolf then left us, going off at right angles i learned from essay of the german sailors that there was a large steamer approaching and that the wolf would probably run along parallel with her during the night and capture her in the morning about nine-thirty that night this steamer passed us about a mile and a half off, heading to the southward and westward she was apparently a large steamer of about seven or eight thousand tons, heavily loaded she resembled in appearance the type of vessel used on the pacific coast as an oil tanker, having the high forecastle head, long bunk deck amidships, and her engines and stack away aft. She was probably a freighter of this description belonging to new zealand, bound from san francisco to australia when she came abreast of us she signalled by morse code, asking what vessel we were. But the german prize crew took good care that none of us could answer or make any signals of any kind i can use both continental and morse and had a signal lamp on board, so that if i had had an opportunity i could have warned this steamer that there was a raider about one of the first official acts by lieutenant zelasko after taking charge of my vessel was to call the cook up on the quarterdeck where he was standing and give him instructions to cook a good large meal for his men, and not to forget to have plenty of white bread to assist him in preparing this meal for the unwelcome addition to our family, he assigned one of his men as an assistant in the kitchen in the meantime the balance of his crew were searching the vessel and making an itemized list of everything that they thought would be worth transferring to the wolf i had a chance to look over this list later on and was surprised to find how complete and businesslike it was it gave the name of the article, the amount, where located, and a remark as to how best to remove it, whether in the original package, to be repacked, or carried in bulk in large canvas sacks, furnished by the wolf for that purpose this is only one incident showing the method and thoroughness with which even the minor details of their business were carried out during the evening i had a chance to get acquainted with lieutenant zelasko, the prize officer, and found him a very decent chap indeed he, and all the rest of the wolf's officers, excepting the commander and the artillery lieutenant, were members of the imperial marine, or naval reserve, men that in peace time commanded and served as officers in the merchant service, like myself in fact, i found that lieutenant zelasko had served writing of his time as able-bodied seaman on the american ship roanoke, a vessel that i had been in essay years before he had the second class iron cross which he had won at antwerp lieutenant zelasko assured me on his word of honour that my family would receive nothing but the best of care possible under the circumstances on board the wolf in fact, after finding out that the wolf was manned by ex-merchant marine officers and men, my fears for the safety of my wife and little girl subsided greatly my wife herself cheered up a great deal after hearing this, thinking that people from our own walk of life could not be as barbarous as we had been led to believe early in the morning of the tenth we arrived at the position where we were to wait for the wolf here we hove to, and the prize crew, assisted by my sailors, who were forced to do all the work pertaining to the handling of the ship, took off the hatches and took on deck three hundred paper of benzine, ready to be transported to the wolf when she showed up during all this time there were always five or six guards or sentries posted at various positions around the ship, and also the balance of the prize crew always wore their side arms, whether they were working or not the navigating officer of zelasko's prize crew and the bo'swain were both american navigators, one having been, prior to the war, master of a sailing vessel plying on the atlantic coast, and the other a chief mate, also in sail, on the atlantic at the outbreak of the war both resigned their positions and went home to lend kaiser bill a hand these fellows received eighteen marks per month and have a rating of only "over matrosa, " or just one step higher than that of common sailor several months later, after we had got better acquainted, i asked this ex-american skipper if he did not think it rather a scurvy trick to sail as master on american ships during peace times and as soon as war was declared to leave america and help sink the very class of ships that he had hitherto made his living on he replied by saying that at the time he resigned and went home to enlist america was not in the war, but even had she been, he would have gone just the same from conversations i had with other ex-american seamen, i am led to believe that at the outbreak of hostilities the german consuls at the port where their vessels hailed from ordered these men to resign and go home to the fatherland i also believe that their fare and expenses were paid there are thesis, thesis paper similar to this, and i believe it would be a good thing for the american shipowners to remember when employing officers and captains to man their vessels after the war is over the german prize crew made a great fuss over juanita, she being quite a novelty to them, and i am sure that she had the time of her life nobody on board the wolf had seen a woman or a child for nearly nine months my wife and little girl were the first woman and child they had taken prisoner on july 11th, early in the morning, the wolf picked us up again it seems that the steamer we saw got away from them the wolf put four large life-boats on the water and took off essay three hundred paper of benzine and all the provisions and ship's stores we had on board the beluga when the vessel was taken charge of by the german prize officer, he told me that i would be allowed to take only a few absolute necessities aboard the wolf when i was transferred. But later, on the 11th, when the wolf picked us up, commander nerger sent over word that i was to be allowed to take everything i wanted unfortunately the permission came almost too late, because by this time the german crew had ransacked my quarters very thoroughly and thesis articles that i would have taken with me for the comfort of my family were gone weeks later essay of these were recovered for instance, i had a pair of rubber-soled, leather-topped yachting shoes essay weeks after joining the wolf i noticed a man with these shoes on his feet i called the attention of one of the officers to it and told him that they were formerly my property the following morning those shoes were just outside my stateroom door, nicely polished among the things i took on the wolf was the wife's sewing machine, which proved of great value later on, as she had to make under and over garments for both herself and nita my nautical instruments, books and charts were taken from me, but i was told that they would be returned to me on my arrival in gerthesis at 1:20 we got into the boats and said a last farewell to the poor little beluga, and she did look little in comparison with this big black brute of a raider as we were being rowed over, the wolf's rails were lined with grinning faces, and not one of them that i could see had the least trace of sympathy not that i wanted sympathy for myself, but it seemed strange to me, at the time, that out of over three hundred german sailors and officers there was not one whose face showed any sympathy for the position a woman and little child were in we climbed on board by means of a jacob's ladder, myself first with nita on my back, and my wife next thesis offered to lend her a hand, but she managed to make it without any help there was a certain satisfaction in this, as afterwards i found out that the germans anticipated a lot of trouble in getting her aboard, as there was quite a bit of sea running on arriving on deck we were met by the chief officer, captain schmell, whose first words were, "tell your wife and little girl that they have nothing to fear, that we are not the huns you probably think we are " he took us aft under the poop and showed us an ex-storeroom which essay men were cleaning out for our use this room was in the centre of the prisoners' quarters and had absolutely no ventilation, and there were negroes, indians and various other nationalities passing up and down to the hell hole, before the door, in various stages of décolleté, to say the least the chief told me that we three could have this room together, or my wife and child could have a more comfortable room on the berth deck amidships, but that i would have to remain down below and that i would be allowed to visit my family two hours daily my wife would not hear of this latter arrangement, saying that we would live in a pig-sty together rather than be separated just then commander nerger came along and spoke to us, saying that he was very sorry to find that the beluga had a woman and child on board, and had he known that such was the case he would have passed right on. But that once he had shown himself to be a raider, to protect himself he would have to keep us prisoners until such time when he could land us at a place where it would not jeopardise the safety of his vessel or crew. And that in the meantime he would make us as comfortable as possible under the circumstances he then gave orders that we three should be given one of the deck officers' staterooms on the berth deck and that we were to be given the freedom on the side our room was on, and that as long as i paid attention to my own business only and did not talk to any of the sailors, i was to continue to enjoy this privilege. But just as soon as i gave them cause to believe that i was trying to gather information, i was to be sent down into the hell-hole aft as the prisoners called their well-named quarters needless to say, i gladly agreed to his proposition, knowing myself to be lucky not to be separated from my family at 4:30 p m a man who was afterwards my orderly came to our room with cotton batting to put in our ears, as they were going to sink the beluga by gun fire i was granted permission to go onto the boat deck and watch they fired nineteen shots at her with the six-inch gun forward, and the nineteenth shell hit her amidships the other eighteen were clean misses rotten shooting, as the target was only two and a half miles off beluga burst into flames and immediately when she caught fire the benzine exploded, making one of the most wonderful sights i have ever seen the sea for miles around us was covered with burning petrol, the weather was almost calm, and occasionally a "cat's-paw" of wind would come along and cause this flaming field of oil to run in various directions, opening a path of black water through a sea of flames as soon as this "cat's-paw" of wind was over the flames would run together again when the spars fell out of the ship the splash was not of water but a veritable cataract of flames even the germans were impressed by the picture of three square miles of burning sea, flames leaping thirty feet high and raging for hours god!. it was a wonderful thing in fact, the sight was so great that i did not realise for essay minutes that it was my own little home that was going up in flames my wife could not, of course, stand this sight, and had remained in her room on account of there being no place ready for us to sleep, we were given temporary quarters in the forward end of the deckhouse, immediately over the pump room on the main deck there was only one very narrow bunk here, possibly eighteen inches wide, which my wife and nita occupied for myself i picked out a nice soft iron plate on the floor and slept on that the only means of ventilation here was a square hole in the roof or ceiling, probably eight inches square there was, i believe, essay kind of ventilator attached to this opening outside there was an iron-bound rule enforced at all times on the wolf, that no light from any source should be visible on the deck all doors were fitted with a patent mechanism so that when the door was opened the electric light current was broken and consequently the light went out immediately on closing the door the light would come on again this made it necessary to sit in the dark if we wanted to have either the port hole or door open for fresh air, and if the door was closed, in a very short time the air became actually suffocating on several occasions the temperature, with the door and port hole open, was 104° f at night, so it can be imagined just how hot it was when the door had been closed for ten or twenty minutes the first night none of us slept a wink, owing to the excitement of the day and the incessant hammering and knocking of the air pumps and ice-making machines immediately under our feet this made the fourth night since we had been captured that my wife did not get a wink of sleep fearing complications from this loss of sleep, i called on the german doctor and finally made him understand the situation he gave me a powder for her and asked if he should visit her thinking possibly that under the circumstances the near approach of a german, even a doctor, would do more harm than good, i told him i did not think it necessary doctor hausfelt, the senior surgeon of the wolf, prior to the outbreak of the war, was a specialist in women's nervous diseases and was the head of a clinic at the hanover university the doctor spoke french and italian fluently but could not speak the english language, although he read it very well he insisted that we be moved the following morning further down the deck, to a room similar to the one we were in, but much quieter in reality, although quieter, this room was hotter than the one forward the bunks, of which there were two, one for the wife and one for nita, were fastened to the iron engine room bulkhead, and the mattresses that lay up against this wall absorbed a great deal of this heat, making them very uncomfortable i slept on the floor, which was concrete laid over the iron deck, and although very hard was really cooler, by a good deal, than the bunks early in the morning after making this change i had to go down to the antiseptic dewritingment and have my trunks very minutely searched and my clothes disinfected in fact, i had to appeal to the second doctor to escape being run through the dis-lousing plant here anything that proved of interest to the prisoner officer was taken away from me, with the promise that it would be returned later my books, letters and paper clippings were religiously read and returned i had a 3a eastman kodak which they seized, and imagine my surprise essay days later when a roll of films half of which had been exposed by me was handed to me by the officer in charge of the photographic dewritingment they had taken this roll of films out of my camera and developed them, just for curiosity, i suppose from here i was taken to the recording lieutenant's office and put through a rigid examination, being asked innumerable questions regarding my movements in the past five years, also questions regarding my parents' origin, occupation and present standing all this fuss because one of the prize crew had found in my quarters a pamphlet giving information regarding the united states naval reserve requirements i thought i had got rid of all this junk, but evidently i must have overlooked essaything my officers and sailors were taken to the regular prisoners' quarters aft, and i was not allowed to see or speak to them now comes what i consider the most awful period of my experience my wife, who is naturally of a highly strung and courageous disposition, broke down under the preceding five days' strain and loss of sleep luckily doctor hausfelt, the wolf's senior surgeon, had been in private life a woman's specialist, and owing to his skill and untiring services my wife pulled through she lay in her berth, packed in ice, for three weeks, absolutely delirious owing to the experience i had undergone during the past few days my own nerves were all ragged and upset. And the continual raving and shrieking of my wife, who imagined herself undergoing the most awful torture, drove me nearly crazy essay days and nights seemed never to come to an end during this time, on july 17th, to be exact, wolf captured and set on fire the american schooner encore, captain oleson, bound from columbia river to australia with a cargo of lumber, but owing to my state of mind i remember it only as an incident.

Calcium chloride, 0 190 per cent. Mercurous chloride, 0 030 per cent. Lithium chloride, 0 035 per cent. Calcium hydrate, 0 010 per cent. Water to 100 writings ”the council asked the manufacturers for further information in regardto the composition or preparation of chloron and received this reply. “chlorine gas is prepared in the usual way and purified and passed into water until a saturated solution is made “water to the extent of three times the volume of the chlorine solution is used to dissolve the necessary amount of calcium chloride, and the two solutions are mixed “the necessary amounts of lithium and mercurous chloride are then intimately mixed and made into solution this solution is then added to the above and the whole is agitated for essay minutes ”a specimen of chloron was examined in the a m a chemical laboratoryand the chemists reported:qualitatively the presence of the following constituents was confirmed:calcium, mercury, lithium, chlorid, free chlorin the solution wasalkaline of course, the declaration that chloron contains mercurouschlorid calomel is obviously incorrect, as mercurous chlorid cannotexist in a solution containing active free chlorin, but is oxidizedto mercuric chlorid corrosive sublimate as the solution was alkalinein reaction, it seemed unlikely that all the active chlorin was presentin the free state, as declared on the label quantitative determinationof free chlorin and of total active “available” chlorin gave. Freechlorin, 0 036 gm per hundred c c. Total “available” chlorin, 0 330 gm per hundred c c , or 165 per cent of the claimed amount a comparison of the information sent to the council with the analyticfindings leads to the conclusion that chloron is not of reliablecomposition as evidence of the therapeutic value of chloron, the following “casereports” were submitted. “in a case of second degree burn involving the most of one leg from the middle of the calf down, chloron was the only dressing used the burn was a bad one and the patient in a rundown anaemic condition, at no time was there any appearance of pus, the surface looked clean and bright and the healing was accomplished with practically no scar whatever the burn was kept wet with the solution by hourly applications day and night the skin which has grown on the wound is clear, healthy and firm in another case of varicose veins of long standing, the result was surprising the patient told of two years vibrating from hospital to hospital and getting no real relief each leg had large open running sores, the only dressing used was wet compresses of this solution the pus disappeared at once, the wound began to cicatrise from the edges and in two weeks the man was discharged from the hospital practically cured ” “chloron was recently tried at the -- -- and -- -- hospital on paper presenting ulcers and other sores which did not readily yield to other methods, with good results, in fact were of an indolent type in these paper chloron proved very valuable ” “i have used chloron on a series of paper surgical presenting pus foci and i have found the application very beneficial and healing, the pus early disappearing in paper of osteomyelitis, suppurating arthritis, cellulitis and chronic ulcers, chloron is writingicularly valuable, its good effects quickly observed and the time of restoration to health shortened ”in the first case report, there is no evidence that chloron is moreefficient in the treatment of burns than any other commonly usedprocedure might have been in the case of the varicose ulcers, whilethere was essay apparent benefit from chloron, no credit is given torest and the general treatment which is known to be important in thetreatment of such conditions the evidence in the other case reports isquite inconclusive consideration of the “case reports” leads to theconclusion that clinical evidence for the value of chloron is lacking attention should be called to the fact that the amount of activechlorin, claimed to be present in chloron as well as the amount foundby the association laboratory, is less than that considered effectiveby dakin, dunham and others. Seemingly in preparing chloron noattention has been paid to the degree of alkalinity, yet the importanceof this factor is now generally recognized chloron fails to comply with the requirements for surgical solution ofchlorinated soda n n r , 1919, p 133, yet the manufacturers makefree use of the text of dakin and dunham handbook of antiseptics intheir advertising pamphlet thus. From the chloron pamphlet. “this ideal antiseptic effects complete sterilization within its sphere of action without causing any damage to the cells or tissues an important method of judging the injurious action of antiseptics is to investigate their effects on the leucocytes from experiments in vitro by parry morgan and in vivo by col c j bond with the strength of antiseptics commonly used in surgery, it has been found that chlorine antiseptics and mercury salts have little effect on phagocytosis in comparison with other germicides the activity of the leucocytes from wounds which have recently been treated with chloron may be demonstrated experimentally ” “in addition to its antiseptic action chloron is a strong oxidizing agent and deodorant and possesses to a marked degree the property of decomposing toxins in this connection it is interesting and pertinent to note that dean, by the regulated action of hypochlorous acid, has prepared a nontoxic dysentery vaccine and it is now a common observation that the free use of chloron may reduce the constitutional symptoms arising from septic processes and that they reappear on discontinuing the antiseptic treatment ” dakin and dunham handbook of antiseptics. “the ideal surgical antiseptic should effect complete sterilization within its sphere of action without causing any damage to animal cells at the moment such a substance does not appear likely to be found, but on the other hand it is surprising to see how little damage may be done to animal tissues by essay active antiseptics an important method of judging of the injurious action of antiseptics is to investigate the condition of the leucocytes in wounds recently treated with the substance under consideration in general it appears from experiments in vitro that, with the strength of antiseptics commonly used in surgery, mercury salts and hypochlorites have relatively little effect on phagocytosis as compared with phenol parry morgan it is a regular phenomenon to observe activity of the leucocytes obtained from wounds which have been recently treated with hypochlorites ingenious methods for determining the influence in vivo of antiseptics on the activities of leucocytes have been worked out by col c j bond “in addition to their disinfecting action, the chlorine antiseptics are strong oxidizing agents and deodorants and moreover possess in high degree the property of decomposing toxins by the regulated action of hypochlorous acid, dean has prepared a nontoxic dysentery vaccine and it is a common observation that the free use of hypochlorites may reduce the constitutional symptoms arising from septic processes and that they reappear on discontinuing the antiseptic treatment ” chloraxchlorax is said to be “a stable chlorine solution for internal use, ” in“kidney conditions, ” “diabetes, ” “acute infections, ” “blood dicrasias, ”“lithemias and rheumatism, ” and “nervous conditions ” it is claimed tohave the same composition as that of chloron with the addition of 0 016per cent of tincture of opium the a m a chemical laboratory reported that the free chlorin inchlorax was 0 01 gm per hundred c c and the total amount of active “available” chlorin was 0 25 gm per hundred c c , or 125 per cent of the amount claimed the laboratory notes that though the chlorincontent of chloron and chlorax is claimed to be the same, that ofchlorax actually is less this is not surprising when the presence inchlorax of reducing substances such as alcohol is borne in mind thelaboratory concludes that chlorax is not of reliable composition the following is typical of the “case reports” submitted to show thevalue of chlorax. “in january last i used chlorax on a case of diabetes mellitus and with excellent results “the patient had been suffering for about nine years and when first brought to my care toxemia had set in, he was drowsy, irritable and unable to leave the house i prescribed chlorax in teaspoonful doses four times a day and am pleased to say that in one week he showed marked improvement soon after he was able to leave the house and attend to his business and after two months’ treatment resumed a normal diet and habits apparently without injurious effects “i believe that in this case chlorax undoubtedly prolonged life ”no mention is made of the dietary or other measures used the widevariation in diabetes and its response to proper diet is so well knownthat the noncommittal statement concerning the beneficial effects ofchlorax amounts to no evidence at all in favor of the preparation the other “case reports” furnished by the chlorine products company, inc , which concern the treatment of gastric ulcers, acute alcoholicgastritis, tonsillitis, etc , are equally unconvincing in fact, nosatisfactory evidence for the clinical value of chlorax has beenpresented the following from the advertising for chlorax is unwarranted andabsurd.

“in the past twenty-five years i have limited my work to neurological and psychological paper ”in 1908 also, dr lowenthal was sending out letters to illinoisphysicians in his capacity as secretary of the “physicians’ league ofillinois ” the “league” issued a “report on candidates for governorand members of legislature, ” giving the names of the various politicalcandidates for office whom “the members of the league can safelysupport ” there were no “membership” fees and a physician who wroteasking “who foots the bills” received no reply in 1915 albert a lowenthal, whose “valuable discoveries in thedomains of organo therapy, neurology and pediatrics, have given him aninternational reputation as a neurologist, alienist and climatologicalexpert of high standing, ” was “medical superintendent” of the “nationalsanitarium information bureau ” this purported to represent the“leading sanitariums and health resorts in the u s ” the “bureau”expected to make its “profit from the 10 per cent honorarium receivedon every referred patient ” the “business manager” of this concern wasone hubert miller, m d the following advertisement appeared in theclassified dewritingment of the school papers for sale school papers for sale st louis post dispatch in 1915:illustrationa layman who wrote in answer to this advertisement received a letterfrom dr lowenthal in which he said that it was his intention to takeabout thirty patients south with him for four months-- cost of trip$500, which includes medical treatment, board, etc dr lowenthalstated further. “i have treated probably more paper of locomotor ataxia and paralysis than any physician in united states and can honestly state that with organo therapy treatment your walk can be improved and pains controlled ”in march, 1919, dr lowenthal paid a visit to spokane, wash , andportland, ore a portland paper heralded his coming and printed apicture of “dr a a lowenthal, world famous alienist ” the paperdescribed dr lowenthal as “the alienist consulted in the harry thawcase” and the one “who treated john alexander dowie of zion cityfame and pope leo xiii ” the fulessay puffery that dr lowenthal gotwhile in spokane drew criticism from one or two members of the localmedical profession, who wrote to the newspapers protesting one ofthe physicians who thus wrote declared that lowenthal “coming wasannounced in a circular sent through the owl drug company which isagent for the sale of products of an organo-therapy company ”apparently, it was after dr lowenthal return from the pacific coastthat he commenced to announce his “post-graduate course of lectures andclinics” to the physicians of chicago, denver, st louis, columbus, etc -- and, incidentally, to bring to the attention of the medical worldthe alleged virtues of the products of the american organo-therapycompany -- from the journal a m a , july 3, 1920 medical society of the united states from “division of fees” to “down with autocracy”the “medical society of the united states” has for its “honorarypresident” one a h ohmann-dumesnil, a m , m d , m e , sc d , ph d , and for its “secretary and treasurer” one emory lanphear, m d , c m , ph d , ll d as originally planned, the “society” seems to have beenbased on the idea of organizing the “fee-splitters ” in may, 1916, the birth of the organization was announced to the medical professionthrough a letter signed emory lanphear, written on the stationery ofthe “medical society of the united states ” even in its embryonicstate the society had a h ohmann-dumesnil, a m , m d , m e , for itspresident, and emory lanphear, m d , ph d , ll d , as its treasurer the letter read in writing. “we-- the majority of the medical profession-- who believe in division of fees i e , that the surgeon should not ‘hog’ the whole of a patient money and leave nothing for the family doctor, are no longer welcome in the a m a we are therefore organizing the medical society of the united states, which will not be conducted for the benefit of a few selfish egotists we would like to have you with us “it costs only $1 00 to join this covers dues for 1916, and includes expense for the beautiful certificate of membership suitable for framing, which you will receive on admission fill enclosed blank and return to me with $1 00 ”but presumably the idea of organizing on a basis of “fee splitting”did not make a hit, so the lure was changed today physicians areapproached with the plea that the “medical society of the unitedstates” will make the medical world free for democracy. It is, we areassured, a “society of protest against the autocracy of the a m a , ”and a “society of medical democracy ”membership costs “only $1 00 including the cost of a beautifulcertificate of membership ” no penalties or punishments are involvedfor belonging to other societies, and. “joining our body need not affect your membership in any other society-- even the a m a , if you wish to belong to it, and be ‘bossed’ by the ‘simmons gang’ ”the dollar for the “beautiful certificate” and membership is solicitedby means of circular letters signed “emory lanphear, ” coming from 3447pine st , st louis, mo , the address of what has been variouslycalled the “american polyclinic, ” the “american hospital, ” and later, the “german hospital ” the “surgeon-in-charge” of the “german hospital”is emory lanphear, m d , c m , ph d , ll d when running under thename of the “american hospital, ” lanphear solicited operative work ona “division of fees” basis, which, the general practitioner was told, meant that “you are to have 40 per cent of all fees received from yourpatients sent to our staff for operation or treatment ”with the change in name from “american hospital, ” to “german hospital, ”lanphear appealed for a “portion of your operative work on a basis ofpure reciprocity ” this “pure reciprocity” seems to have been a stillmore liberal distribution of the patient money, for from a 40 percent basis it was raised to an even fifty-fifty said lanphear, in aletter sent out a few months ago:illustration. The “medical society of the united states, ” wasoriginally organized on a basis of “fee-splitting, ” as is shown by thereduced facsimile of a letter sent broadcast in 1916, announcing thebirth of the new “society ” apparently, “fee-splitting” as a rallyingpoint did not bring in the desired returns, so today the “medicalsociety of the united states” is alleged to be a “society of protestagainst the autocracy of the a m a ” “i wish also to inform you in spite of the despicable opposition of the hypocritical gang in charge of the a m a , and the no less contemptible action of the st louis medical society, i am going to remain in st louis and continue to do surgical work upon a ‘division of fee’ basis to be more explicit, if you bring me a case for operation i shall allow you one half of the fee for your time, trouble, responsibility and help in the management of the case ”before leaving the interesting professional personality of lanphear, and carefully avoiding any details of a personal nature, we may remindour readers that as long ago as 1908 lanphear was the “dean” of the“hippocratean college of medicine, ” with a h ohmann-dumesnil, a m , m d , m e , sc d , “vice-dean ” at that time lanphear sent out lettersto physicians proposing the organization of a “post graduate faculty”on the following basis. “those who hold full professorships shall purchase stock in the corporation to the amount of $1, 000 00. Those who become lecturers or instructors shall pay in the sum of $500 00. Those who are to be merely clinical assistants will buy ten shares of stock, $100 00 ”the “hippocratean college” was a “sundown” affair. It never graduated astudent, and expired in 1910 illustration. Reduced facsimile of the letter-heads of an institutionknown variously as the “american hospital” and the “german hospital ”the change in name from “american” to “german” seems to have takenplace early in 1915-- when things german were more popular andprofitable than they are today!.

“actions and uses -- ferric cacodylate has the properties of iron salts and of arsenic its use has been proposed in conditions in which school papers for sale school papers for sale the effects of iron and the mild arsenic action of cacodylates is desired “dosage -- from 0 015 to 0 1 gm 1/4 to 1-1/2 grains ”the period for which the iron cacodylate preparations now in new andnonofficial remedies were accepted coming to an end with the close of1920, the council decided to determine if sufficient evidence for thevalue of ferric cacodylate has accumulated to warrant its continuedrecognition the following is the report of the referee of thecommittee on therapeutics to whom the matter was assigned. “as far as the referee knows, the only claim that iron cacodylate has as a therapeutic agent is that it forms a convenient method for the administration of iron and cacodylate while there is no reason why a drug should not be given by mouth, usually intramuscularly, and apparently it has recently been given intravenously the effects to be expected from its use are those of iron and arsenic “granted that iron and arsenic are valuable therapeutic agents, iron cacodylate is not a satisfactory preparation in which to administer these drugs for the following reasons. “1 it would appear that cacodylates are not the best form in which to administer arsenic cacodylates in therapeutic doses exert but a feeble action small quantities may be reduced to cacodyl ch₂₄as₂, and varying amounts to inorganic arsenic the amount transformed to arsenic is apparently unknown and probably varies in different individuals on these grounds alone the use of the cacodylates where an arsenic effect is desired seems dubious “2 the amounts of iron and cacodylates contained in the doses recommended are small when compared with the usual doses of either iron or cacodylate the amount of iron in the iron cacodylate preparations is small, about 0036 gram per dose, while the preparations admitted to ‘useful drugs’ contain much larger amounts per dose recommended the list follows. Massa ferri carbonates fe per dose 042 gm pilulae ferri carbonates " 058 gm tinctura ferri chloride " 022 gm ferri et ammonii citrae " 042 gm “the approximate amount of arsenic in iron cacodylate in the commonly recommended doses varies from 012 gm to 0 024 gm , while the amount of arsenic in sodium cacodylate in the recommended doses varies between 021 and 35 gms it would seem that a much more rational method of administration of these two drugs would be separately, in which case a better control over the dosage is possible “3 the referee has been unable to secure reliable clinical evidence that iron cacodylate is a serviceable preparation a search of the available literature for the past fifteen years has been made, also drs edsall, longcope, stengel, hoover, phillips and miller have been consulted these physicians know nothing of its use “4 in view of the above, it appears to the referee that iron cacodylate is an irrational and useless method of the administration of iron and arsenic ”the council adopted the report of the referee and directed that ironcacodylate be omitted from the 1921 edition of new and nonofficialremedies -- from reports of council on pharmacy and chemistry, 1920, p 62 libradol report of the council on pharmacy and chemistrythe council has authorized for publication the following report whichexplains why libradol was found ineligible for new and nonofficialremedies w a puckner, secretary libradol is manufactured by lloyd bros , cincinnati according to acircular a “readily removable” label which accompanies the tradepackage, its “uses” are. “in colds, croup and acute bronchitis inlocal congestions. In lung trouble, in acute inflammations of this orany other organ, especially if pain or soreness be present in lumbago, sciatica, or in rheumatic pains of the joints or muscles applied tothe forehead, it induces sleep ”libradol is offered in two forms, “libradol mild” for infants andsupersensitive persons which is said to be “destitute of drug energy”and libradol “regular” which is “highly medicated, ” the “constituents”being “dracontium, sanguinaria, cephaelis, melaleuca, lobelia, laurus, capsicum, tobacco ”according to a circular, “the sanitary plasma libradol” is a“homogeneous, highly medicated, and exceedingly potent compound, inplastic form, ” which “carries the energies of its drug constituentsand the high antiseptic qualities of laurus camphora and melaleuca ”it is stated. “the drug influence of libradol is necessarily differentfrom that of any known single member of the materia medica but yet, no mystery either in medicine or of pharmacy is claimed as a writing ofits composition or process of manufacture it is a thing peculiar toitself, the result of the study of the drugs from which it is derivedand compounded these drugs may be studied at leisure by whoever caresto do so ”the following information bearing on the composition of libradol wasfurnished by lloyd brothers in response to a request from the councilto aid in the consideration of the preparation. “‘compound lobelia powder’ has been, since 1852, official in the american dispensatory, in the first edition of which 1852 its formula is given, as follows.
