During  the ten years that followed each woman    had given     birth     to children.  Those of Agnes  died at their birth.  Those of Charlotte, are alive  today.  In   1001   Agnes   and   the child  Susan  died        Agnes  was  buried as "Mrs.  Collins" and the little girl as      the  daughter  of   ' George and  Chariotta  Collins."   finally George Collins had  married Clarice McCurdy in   May of  ,."     lias been able "to"meet >alrre-v. 1 Mi Ins  'I-,\' naS-ed"   denial.it h!>s  hern  ufvr's-fd    .  how ^ColliM wotjld lefei  To^hc ,Kct   ^ niuch fame with theatrical manag-  thaflall tlhe'ifiateria.1 'witnesiscs" *��������� htjei^s "fhat"' Mrs. Lang^was induced _ to,  she has evet-'^ha/l  and I have heard simiiai opiWions\ex-  presscti by othef paients. tie/ wprl.  was most'thorough and uhaffai pupil  learned from hei was stored .inthe  braMi-f0rfutuie use Let us look at  the facts/     1st���������Division   ND1-' 2  was  The following circular is being sent  lo Canadian newspapers and is being  reproduced in many of the same  We have read with veiy gp-eat pleasure a communication-by the Re\.

In this  issue will be found a statement furnished by  the   Chamlbcrlain.  Medicine Company, regarding the un  fortunate    case   m Victoria recently  where ;: ��������� coroner's *iury relumed     a  verdict,     after hearing  medical evidence, that an infant's death was due  ��������� to  op.;um     poisoning,   resulting   from1  administrataion   of      a    proprietory  medicine known  as Chamberlain's.  Thc writer holds1 no brief for   the  defence of       Chamberlain's,  or  any  other  proprietory   medicine  concern.  As  a business  proposition  the   statement  referred   to   is published   in Thc  Ledger, and paid for by the aforesaid  Company.    But as a matter of doing  simple       justice   to all,   their  statement is entitled  to consideration.  It  is a well  known fact that chil- '  drcn  are particularly  susceptible     to  the action of any preparation of   opium; so      much so that the extract  usually prescribed  for adults, morphia  or morphine,  is never   adminslered  to   infants.    The ordinary  dose       of  morphine for an adult is    l-(! to \- of  a grain.  To  get lhe san.c  effect,   one  grain  of opium   is required.   A     mild  preparation known   as   Tr  Opic  Can--  phorated, or paragoi'.c, is usually ail-  ministered to your;*; .children wli;������n an  opiate is required.   It is agreed     by  medical authorities  that occasionally  a person is found  upon whom thc action of opium in any form is severely narcotic,     and to whom it is in-  safe'to administer-,it in any form,  on  if administered,     only in very small  closes,  and   watching *he effect closely.       Other 'people can take enough  morphine at one time,  provided   the  person  has become  what   is commonly known -'as a morphine fiend,  to Mil  a score of men not accustomed  to    .e.  drug, and yet show very little  of   iis  effects.     If,  however,  the publisicd  statement     of the manager' nf      the  company is true, and it is haiol" like  ly   to he 'otherwise   for if  so an  analysis  would readily  prove the' falsity  of his claim that there is   only       the  amount   stated   of the   drug  in each  ounce or   dracham 'of his preparation,  it   is    inconceiveable  that  the  infin-  testimal quantity of opium in a     few  drops ���������   of this   mixture  could   cause  death      in   toe case   of   a child���������even  one only a couple of weeks of age.  If   vveaieito  credit this,  then,  indeed,  should we credit thc at      one  'time popuhu  fad of similia similibus  cv.rrantur,      when  high   potency  was  the cry     of the homoecipathist, when  for instance, ,i gt   :i or arsenic    was  ground   up with   n''ii ��������� pains of <vi"'.- '  and one grain of '.his was again  mix-  ffS������fIffII:Iffk������lVy |W%.

The  writer   well   recalls  his  statement,   made during   one    of  his  lectures  in   thc   winter of  1S7G,  that "if a medical man 'were iicstrict  eel   to two remedies  in  the treatment  nf disease,     hc would choose  opium,  anrl cminine.  and if   one   were ob-  taiiuvWc.    and a choice allowed,       it  woild \c opium.''  We do   not desire   to   criticise      the  evidence  given   by the  medical     men  of Victoria in     thecaso referred  to,  I but   it is unfortunute  that,   if     they  are correctly     reported, they -should  have felt called on to testify to their  belief that   the infant referred to died  from opium poisoning^ when evidently such a minute amount was ^ministered,     and when under ^conditions  somewhat  similar  the  natural  medical treatment would be  the administration, with extreme caie -it is true,  of some mild form of the same remedy.   And it is cM)ialiy true that gicat  care  must be exercised in giving    an  opinion     as to     the cause of  a two-  weets old infant's death when      thc  symptoms      and history of the. case  were as stated,   for infantile ailments  in     thc case of .such . young children  are     numerous, and many thousands  die annually   in this  world of     ours  with symptoms probably not particu  larly dissimilar that have never been  dosed with  drugs  of. any ..kind.

The coroner's  evidence, was  given that fifteen "drops  01  thc mixture   was absolutely fatal.  The   evidence  before  the  coroner's  jury was published in full in tbe. Victoria Colonist-'    lt shows conclusively that the child did not die 0i ol""'  poisoning,   that  the  child   had       t,he  same  symptoms  before any   medicine  was:-administered as when the doctor  was      called    and found  it suneiing  from  what he called opium poisoning  The   statement  thai   Chamberlain's  Co'ic.
