"In the three worth, 'painsand panaceas,'
5s59.,!'Pr'mSS .thf-Jrhjjle .subject of
patent medicines, " saidaprominent whole
sale druggist of this city to a reporter in
rearch of information on that woi Id
known topic "People are bound to have
the former, and as long as there is an
earth the latter will be manufactured as
cure-alls. Patent medicine have become
one of the staples of the wiirid's producls,
and areas certain now of being found on
the market as Wheat or baly carriagis or
com. Where and when the patent medi
cine, as it is now undcrstoc 1, originatrd,
is bald to tell. I am incline 1 to the belief
that, like Topsy, it just growed.
"In regard to the sJicacy of patent
medicines I have this much to fay: While
a large number of them nre, of course, ab
solutely worthies, it must be admitted
that many of them bate a great deal of
merit and will do nearly what is claimed
for them. A manufacturer finds a recipe
which, in its cures of certain sicknecs,
has become almost a tradition m a locality,
or a physician makes n study of some
sptc'al disease and prepares his formula;
it stands to reason that in either case the
medicines "must have merit. Many of these
preparations arc compounded of herbs
which the Indian, through a natural in
stinct, has been using f in iher back than
the memory of man goeth; others are
really what your phvsiclan would give you
at a higher price, while ihe many are but
simple decoctions, wmen, romwneu wita
the good hygienic advice they make you
follow', effect their cures.
"TLere arc patent medicines without
end. In this catalogue I have here there
are 3,00 varielics listed, which arc ac
tively before the trade, and there nre fully
4,000 vaiictics knowu. Then consider the
vast numb, r which have on'y a Iceil repu
tation, and I have no doubt the total would
be biought up to G,0J0. Ihe amount of
manufactuiing done is tremendous, bur a
larger number of the firms Iucn't much

Idea can be obtained by referring to a few
of the more prominent of the medicines
now before the public. Last year the
value of the product of a well-known.
Pochester firm was 3.0C0,000,- of a
Philadelphia Lrm, f.'.CCO.COO; of another
Philadelphia firm. $1,500,000; of a Balti
more firm. jl,000,CW); of a liuiTalo rnn.
$1,000,00-3; of Lowell firm, &l,OiK),0GO.
Nearly onc-Unth of this entire product
was handled for the Wl stern trade by the
seven principnl drag hevscs of Chicago.
One of these firms serds about five car
loads, or 37,500 bottles, of its medicine to
this city c cry month to be distributed
through the west, northwest and south.
This getting medicire in car-load lots i,
of course, an exceptional case, but it serves
as an initance to shoiv to what a magni
tude this business has grown.
" Tha amount of advertising done in the
interests of patent medicines, tUrou!;:i
almanacs, newspapers, circular;, show
cards, posters, etc., is simply enormous, "
Eaid a well-known adve-tisirfgawnt whom
the reporlei subie-jueutly isitcd, "and the
money paid outruns im":nto the millions.
Almanacs ere printed by the ton. and
wh'n j ou figure out that these almanacs
will average sixteen or seventeen to the
po and you can realize wiut tttat means;
and not one ton or five tons, hut hundred
of them. I know se era! linns who is"e
from fifty to three hundred tons of printed
matter every year, and, besides, do an im
menre amount of newspaper adverting.
"About a year ago one of the more
prominent of the patent medicine manu
facturers was interested in a trial in this
city, and swore on the wittwss stand that
his advertising e-penscs for the pzeenhag
year were 'J50,000; a prominent Kalti
morc film I know experded nearly 2f0.
000 last year, and there aro many firms
who pay out from 50,000 to $100,000.
Why, take yesterday's Chicago chilis and
figure up the number of pa'ect medicine
cdverlLments therein. That will give
you an idea of the extent of the business. "
The reporter did so; he scanned the
columns of the papers and foad therein
ncarlj- thirj columns of display advertise-.
ments --cttiiig forth the nierils of pitcnt
medicines. -Th:.t is exclusive of reading
notices and could have coit no less than

This;. 13 ntUs'.ed by Lis acighters. It
oppressed him mora than most people
will ever livable to understand. Ho
almost faltered in the presanee of tha
great responsibility thrust upon him.
He had not expected that, the uio of
his name in tho convention, which he
had permitted ia forder to defeat Ed

nomination. Instead of controlling
the convention for somo one else, as ho
anticipated, that hedy controlled itself
for him, end newfound himself with o
jawel that ho did not want.
In ajfewdays Blaine's family will
go"1 tog Washington for tha winter,
simply following his rule of the last 20
years. Thero'thcy will followtheir
customary babitil-of life, and receive
