THE SAD DEATH OF DR. MOFFATT.

Medical circles and the community at large were greatly shocked on July 21st to hear of the terribly sudden death of the above gentlein in, the cause of which was chloroform, administered while having teeth extracted. The doctor had taken Dr. Bray with him to the office of Mr. Lougheed, the denttist, chloroform was given and some of the teeth extracted, when collapse took place. Further medicai assistance was instantly secured, but the patient was beyond human aid. The doctor was a young man, somewhat over 30 years of age, and had been in practice some eight years, during which he had built up a lucrative business in the east end of the city.

Dr. M. O'B. Ward, of Maisonneuve, has been obliged to give up business for a while, on account of ill-health, and has gone to the Lower St. Lawrence to recuperate.

Another member of the trade who has been on the sick list, is Mr. J. E Tremble, who has been laid up for some weeks, but who is now, we are pleased to say, able to attend to business as usual.

Mr. Blundell, of Kerry Watson & Co., is also seeking a rest from Bell telephones and town orders at Newmarket, Ont., "here he will sojourn wi:h his family for a few weeks and enjoy a well earned rest.

A. Lebeau has bought out the International Pharmary on St. James street. Mr. Lebeau, who has a more extended experience than usual both in the retail and wholesale business, passed at the last examination and will make a success of his venture, if energy and ability count for anything.

Stanley Martin, the head of the town department of Lyman, Sons & Co., is seeking a respite from his arduous labors, with rod and line after the finny denizens of the Laurentian lakes. No doubt there will be a notable diminution of the piscatorial inhabitants of the aforesaid lakes, as Mr. Martin is a great disciple of old Ike Walton.

A class has been formed by several of our drug. gists for the study of bacteriology under Dr. Bruère, of Bishop's College. The class is composed of Messrs. Lanctot, Chapman, Laurence, Lecours, Tremble, Dowler, and others. The growing importance of bacteriology makes it necessary that pharmacists should be thoroughly posted on the theory and practice so as to intelligently aid the physician in this line of work.

Our congratulatior.s are due to Mr. Lanctot on his election to the Board of Examiners. Mr. Lanctot is one of the best known of our young pharmacists, being a gold medalist at the College and having taken a special course at the Philadelphia College after graduation. He is well prepared to fill the position of Chemistry Examiner and to do justice to the association and the candidates.

W. A. Hendrie has opened a branch on the corner of St. Mark and St. Catherine. Mr. Hendrie has carried on a successful business on St. Catherine St. East, for some years past, and has now ventured into the extreme west end of the same street. We have no doubt that Mr. Hendrie will be as successful in his western establishment as he has been in his eastern, as he is well known among the west end physicians “as a careful and accurate dispenser, and a thoroughly competent pharmacist."

At the first meeting of the new council of the Association, all the officers were re-elected. Mr. R. W. Williams, of Three Rivers. President: Mr. S. Lachance, ist vice; R. M. Nicholls, 2nd vice; J. E. Ray, 3rd vice; C. J. Covernton, Treasurer; E. Muir, Secretary-Registrar. Mr. E. Duberger having resigned as Examiner of Chemistry, Mr. Henri Lanctot was appoi ited to the position. Mr. Macmillan having resigned his position on the council on account of removal from the provin 'e, Henry Willis, of Quebec, was elected to fill the vacancy.

Mr. Willis, of Quebec, is to be congratulated on his election to the council. He is probably the youngest man who has held the position, and although he passed his exam. only a year ago, the fact that, in his first contest for the council, he wanted only a few votes for election, shows his ability and popularity. However, by the resignation of Mr. Macmillan, he was called to fill the vacancy. Mr. Willis is a member of the A. Ph. A. and has attended some of the conventions. The experience thus gained will be of service to him on our council.

The Sulphur Spring at Maisonneuve, through a little judicious advertising on the part of the Street Railway Co., is daily visited by large crowds. The spring is situated on the Viau property, which is now being opened up by the proprietor, who has placed comfortable seats and a covered pavilion along side the well, so that the delightful fragrance and favor of the water can be discussed comfortably and at leisure. One dose is enough for the average Christian, but some by judicious training have come to acquire a taste for the article, and they evidently enjoy it. However, we don't envy them.

LOOK AT THESE PAGES.

Mr. Dowler, who recently bought out the Macmillan Pharmacy, is a believer in judicious advertising. He has just got out and distributed a handsome little booklet entitled "In Health's Sake," which is devoted mainly to advertising his prescription department and a few specialties. The booklet is well written, and neatly printed and is altogether a good thing, and a credit to Mr. Dow. ler, who reports business as first rate and his pre. scription trade constantly increasing.
