They Are Excellent Dispensers, and
Tims May Become Doctors.
From the London Leader.
Although the outside world knows but
little about it, there are some hundreds
of women who spend their working hours
in mixing drugs and dispensing medicines.
Some have passed on and become chem
ists. the first woman chemist in London
having qualified as hong ago as 1875. But
there are many who are simply dispens
ers in the dispensing rooms of the large
hospitals, or helping private doctors, or
employed by the large dispensing chem
ists and in the laboratories of large dye
ing and chemical works. To a great ex
tent these women are the daughters of
medical men. for the fact that the portals
of this profession were open and. com
paratively speaking, were easy for women
to enter, has hardly been realized until
lately by others.
For the truly ambitious woman whose
thoughts turn in the direction of medi

jc'-t, “it is being recognized that women
make better dispensers than men—”
“Oh. yes, decidedly much better. Women
arc neater, and they take up the' profes
sion more as a life work; they ore more
earnest about it. Men who have failed
in their exam.-, fall back upon dispensing,
but women go in for it, and you know
women are naturally much more careful
in tittle things, 4hey are more accurate;
this is no doubt why they got on so well
in this profession. They are so much
neater than men are; you go into a man’s
dispensary after a busy morning, perhaps
after a rush, and you wouldn't be able to
find a thing—he wouldn’t himself—not a
thing; but if it is a woman who does the
dispensing you will soon see the differ

a matter of favor and often attended with

as a result it discouraged many w ho oth

Hott It Is Circulated by the Million
Pieces Through the Via 11.
L. A. Coolidge In Ains’.ee’s Magazine.
It has been 6aid that ihe distribution of
literature has come to be about the most
important feature of a national commit
tee's work. This phase of campaigning
has reached truly colossal proportions. The
head of the literary bureau of a national
Committee must be a man or' rare judg
ment, of varied resources and of unusual
executive ability. The head of the repub
lican liierary bureau in 1806 was Perry S.
Heath, now assistant Postmaster General.
The head of the Democratic bureau was
Daniel McConville of Ohio. Documents
were sent out from both headquarters by
the ton. The Republican Committee dis
tributed over 160.000,000 pieces of “litera
ture.” Over 16,000 packages were sent by
freight or express, and over 130 carloads of
primed mauer. In the shipping depart
ment alone. 275 people were employed. The
distribution by the Democratic Commit
tee was almost equally as largo. The work
has been reduced to a science. Each com
mittee has lisis of voters which are* fur
nished originally by the various local com
mittees in state? and congressional #dis
tricts, arid these lists arc so arranged that
so far as possible, just the right kind of
document will be sent to each voter, and
just the right kind of argument will be
presented to each mind. The Republican
and Democratic National Committees to
'day each have at least 3.0C0.0(W names on
their lists. By far the largesi proportion
of documents distributed are speeches in
Congress, which go out under congress
ional franks, thus reducing immensely the
expenditures for postage. Of such great
advantage is this that in the congressional
session immediately preceding"a presiden
tial campaign, many speeches arc made
chiefly with a view *o their distribution.
Entire books have been inserted in the
Congressional Record in this way. In a
recent Congress “Tom" Johnson, the mill
ionaire congressman from Ohio, printed
as a part of his speech Henry George's
book on “Progress and Poverty,” and this
xves sent out by ihe hundreds of thousands
under congressional franks. Of course the
National Committees have to bear the ex
pense of paper and printing.
This class of documents is far from com
prising all that go out. The literary bu
reau of a national committee is a great
workshop. The Republican Committee in
ISSB employed twenty-seven writers, most
of them specialists on the tariff, on cur
rency and on other topics of a political
nature, and these men were kept busy at
headquarters constantly preparing timely
material os the occasion might demand.
Much of this work was sent out through
ihe newspapers, and three or four columns
of matter for this purpose were prepared
every day. Statements, cards, explana
tions, interviews were distributed to tlie
press in the guise of news. One of the
rooms at headquarters was lined with
books of reference, and two or three men
were kept busy a 1 the time responding to
telegrams from all over the ebuntry ask
ing for information on all sorts of ques
tions. A speaker assigned to talk in a
given town would pick up the local oppo
sition paper on his arrival, and find a
stotement about the tariff or about the
currency which he thought he ought ro re
fer to on the platform that night. He
would telegraph promptly to headquarters
for exact information, and within an hour
or two he would receive a reply telling
him exactly how he could meet the point
which had been raised. Similar inquiries
would come daily from editors of news
papers in remote districts which lacked
reference facilities of their own. The
press bureau was a highly important ad*
junct to the liierary department. Over
12.006 were furnished with
plate matter, patent insides and occasional
editorials. Bulletins were sent daily by
telegraph ai the expense of the commit
tee to 100 morning newspapers and to 150
afternoon prints. These bulletins ranged
all the way from 100 to 300 words in length.
There were special departments for al
most every conceivable class of popula
tion. Men were kept busy preparing doc
uments in German. Swedish, Danish,
Polish and Hebrew, which were to be sent
to localities where any one of these lan
guages happened to prevail. There was a
colored bureau which had charge of all
questions relating to the cblored vote,
sending out literature to convince the, ne
gro that his interest lay in continuing to
support the Republican party. There was
a woman's bureau under the, charge of
Mrs. J. Ellen Foster, who had fifteen wo
men in her department preparing for dis
tribution literature calculated to affect
favorably the feminine mind. For it is
recognized by the politicians that, although
there are few states where women are al
low’ed to vote, there is not one in which
they do net exercise a great and some
times decisive influence upon the ballot.
There were departments to look after com
mercial travelers, bicycles, savings insti
tutions and life insurance companies.

Outlook for Resumption of Build
Business was rather quiet yesterday in
the local markets, with the exception of
the naval stores people, who had a wind
fall in the opera lions ot a Jacksonville
house, which nee U4I about -,CCO casks- of
spirits to fill contracts which it had sold
in this market. ,
The spirits market had ope nod nominal
ly firm 43*2, but the movements of the
Jacksonville concern rapidly brought the
price to 44 cents, the figure of the day
before. At this figure sales of 903 casks
were reported at the closing, though it is
understood that fully a? many more were
sold which were not reported. This af
forded the factors some relief for their
accumulated stocks, which were bxoning
too large to be comfortable.
With no prospect of any further wind
fall of this rori lor to-d3y it is fearei
that turpentine will resume the downward
tendency which has marked it for the lasi
The rosin situation is satisfactory, with
prices firm and small stocks in the hands
of the factors.
“Nothing doing” accurately describes the
state of affairs at the Cotton Exchange
yesterday. There were no receipts and
no sales. On the strength of renewed in
terest in New York, due to Liverpool od
vices, the local quotations were advance!
t* of a cent on all grades.
The dealers in builders’ supplies report
a very good outlook for their business this
summer. The lull in the demand for bund
ing supplies, both general and local, has
ceased, and prices remain firm, with hut
slight reductions over former quotations.
The local dealers report numerous inqui
ries and other evidences that building,
which was checked by the combination of
high prices and the laborers’ strike, is
about to be resumed and they unite in
predicting a good summer in this line.
The number of building permits issued re
cently at the City Exchange beais them
out in this assumption.
For the second time thio season yester
dav Savannah failed to receive a single
bale of cotton. This will occur more, fre
quently a9 the dull season progresses.
Other ports are in the same boat. Quota
tions were advanced 1 s on all grades on
the strength of New York reports, but
no ?Qlei3 were reported.

looking for a further upw-ard reaction on
the advices from Liverpool, and have ab
sorbed the offerings fi;om the South. A
firm market in New- Orleans bade them
to look for a rally similar to that of last
Saturday. Commission houses are doing

trade and improving crop advices in the
