PA rENT MEDICINES. I An Eye on Cough Drops. The Cuancellor of the Exchequer has got his eye on cough drops. In them lies a possible source of revenue, and should they aid to enhance a. coming surplus the articles will in some measure justify their existence. For the present they and their companion, cough mixture, are receiving the attention of the Excise officers just as if they were over-watered beer. Mr Robert Willson, chemist, New Ken! -road, vends a Cough, Fever, and Bronchitis Mixture" which is unstamped, and contains on each bottle directions to be "well shaken before being taken," also the numbfir of spoonfuls to be swallowed per day. An Excise officer purchased a dose, not for the purpose of curing a cold or a cough, but in order to found a prosecution on it. He declared it to be a patent medicine, and asserted that it ought to be stamped. If, how- ever, the chemist agreed to pay a fine of BI nothing more would be heard of the matter. But Mr Willson, who believed strongly in the stampluss rights of his cough mixture, declined to accept the terms mentioned, as he considered they bordered on blackmail, and he was therefore summoned before the Lambeth magistrate. Mr Hopkins decided that the mixture came under the Act, and ought to have been stamped, and ordered the chemist to pay 40, with 2s costs. Mr Willson expressed his intention of appealing. For the present cough mixtures and cough drops are, under the Lambeth decision, liable to contribute their quota to the Treaf-ury. Thn nation once drank itself out of the Al.bairnv claims. There is no reason why it should not cough or sneeze itself out of the expenses attendant cn the acquisition of the Soudan. D--tily Telegraph. 'V.
