Niagara Falls, N. Y., Sept. 26, 1905.

To the Editor:  —I would like to warn physicians through The Journal of a man by the name of Charles Croft, who pretends to be an agent for the World's Clubbing and Subscription Co., of New York City. Mr. Croft's method is to offer several magazines at an exceedingly low price so that nearly every man that he approached in this city bought magazines of him. He sold me McClure's, the Cosmopolitan, Everybody's and the Black Cat for $2.00 a year. Mr. Croft is a man about 26 years of age, would weigh about 165 pounds, smooth face, light brown hair, is well dressed and has a very pleasing manner. I have communicated with the publishers of the magazines which he sold me and they inform me that no subscription has been received and that Mr. Croft is a swindler.
