MlssKstelle Burgheim, daughtor of Dr J Burgheim of Houston, is seoking subscribers to the Home Journal, that publication having ofibred a scholar ship at tho Hosion Conservatory of Muslo when she attains a certain num'ior of names. Sho in a graceful, beautiful and accomplished young lady and has all oady gained distUio .tlon as a musician. Thu oxomitive committee, consisting of W. A. Williamson, M. P. Long and K II Bingham, reportod the names of ton applicants who had conformed to all ruloa, and recomruedod that they bo i lected mombers The report was adopted and the now mombers en tered upon tho roll. On motion of Dr. J. Burgheim a committee of five was appointed to reviso tho by. laws. The chairman appointed W. H. MoKoy, George Heyor and W. B. Morrison and Presi dent Kaltoyor and Socretary Connor being added made tho iivo, according to tho motion. ' After tho address of wolcomohy Dr. Graves the president delivered his annual address as follows: Gentxkmkn On thi?,thc thirteenth anniversary of the usoeiatiwe meet i'i the glon us city of Wrtia,in accord anco with our laws and customs, and hern h-t iue pay a deserved trituto to hospitality to the city and to the generosity of her citizens which is apparent upon all flidei and is as heart as it is welcome. We muct together fur tho mutual interchange of &uoh ideas us may better promote our sooial nnd moral relations, and at the same timo to ad vanoo the grind seietioo of Pharmaoy. I say graud science, and 1 uso tho term advisedly, for what is grander or more n-jblo than to save human life, or to anioliorato human buffering Pharmaoy is a soioiue and only those who give it duo study and ovon now keep well posted in tho now dis coveries daily made.'caDjhope to rank well in the profession. I regret that I am .not able to make you a 1 tng or H'udiod address, and nandidly more rpgret tlut others, far more competent thin I in this way, THE PHARMACISTS have not the honor in addressing you for tho fact is the duties of business Inve pressed heavily upon me of latu, and to this Ins been added tho sad bercavotnont I have recently sustained in the uuoxpecte-d death of my brother. Thoso matters have provontod the greater attention that I intended to give this address, for any Uults that it may have 1 olaim your kind in dulgence 1 am pleased to note tho attoudtiuoe of members, even though I regret it is not hrger. When I think of how that tiibt "handfull of members," so to speak, met in D.dlas, and contrast it with our present gathering, I am pleased and gratifi -d. There are at this time counter nttraitions in Dallas and Houston. and I may perhaps bo ex cused if 1 express tho opinion that if the exocutive committee had takon my advise and changed the date of meet ing, 'ho attendance would have been much luger Ait h your president's duty to addrtss ou, 1 will humbly endeavor to do soi and I lake for my theuio a subjeot that I consider of vital impor tai ce. I am aware that, while it may please some it may not be satisfactory to others, jet rightly viewed its aspect may be appropriately and profitably considerid. As I have said I regard the science of pharmaoy to be grand and noble, the equal of any profession on this mutidine sphere, and as an appren tice, di penotr, proprietor aud "whole saler,'' I may olaim to hive some knowledge of the profession and its various phases. As 1 lovo mv profes sion, so I am jealous of it and do not watit to see it degenerate into that of a mere store keepcr,and there is great danger of such degeneration. In former years the pharmaoist used to take pride in making his own pharmaceutical preparation, but now where unscrupulous manufacturers and dealers come and sell "as" Elisor "B's pills or drugs and chemicals cheaper than they can be honestly made, and with the "elispencors" name on the bottle, or package tint pride is scattered to the winds, and a serious degeneration is the practical reiu't. In the one case the pharma cist was a scientific disponoer not a mere retailer lie knew what he vended; in the other he hnB to rely upon the statement of tho chemical uianufac.urer, in saying this I am making no insinuation0, but simply stating facts The fact I regret to say, is that many in the trade arc to apt to consi der, first, not the value of the article but its cost, and price rather than quality is the first consideration. The phtrmacist should never for get that he has a three fjld du y bofore him, first in duty to his profession, seoond to the physician and thirdly to the public. Tho patient s life is as much in tho hands of tho pharmacist as the doo tor, what matters tho doctor's skill if his prescriptions are not properly pre pared, unless the drugs aro of stand ard quality. Most of you aro busi ness men and know that howovcr temptingitho bait may be tho market prices rule and if drugs aro offered for something less, thero is something wrong shout it, and prudence says, have nothing to do with such doubt ful things. What is the use of suoh dangerous and false economy. The public need tho best and efficient drugs and will pay for that at such figures as yield a handsome profit. It is essential to their health, may be to their life. In honor to thorn the best should bo given and the dootor's reputation should not bo impaired. Many pharmacists, especially in small plaoes, havo a hard struggle for existonco Tho best part of the busi ness is the prescription business.; will their business bo improved if ques tionable practice, as thoso indicated, drive tho physicians into putting up their own prescriptions, as is done in somo parts of tho nottheru states and other places. I think not and whilst I am charging none, I simply say con sider this matter fairly and if neces sary 'halt o'er it is too lato " In connection with this I would draw attention to tho Attorney Gen eral's opinion that under tho state laws, none but registered pharmacists can handle medicines, and this ruling Jb of great advantage and I beliove, that if a strong committeo were ap pointed, much needed and further tin provomonts in the pharmacy law could be secured, and I recommend the appointment of such a committee. I havo the honor to roport that I havo had a conference with the regents of the univerbity and have their prom ise to ahk the next legislature to es tablish a chair of pharmaoy at the medioal branoh of tho university in Galveston, whioh I thiuk is tho best location, for pharmaoy and medioino should always bo co-oporativo for tho general good. At the last convention your presi dent was ordered iO uiako a settle ment with Mr. Wells, chairman of tho executive oommittce who took upon himself the right ol unduly loai ing tho surplus funds of tho asso ciation to himself and 1 have ondeav ored to do so, even going to Fort Worth with that object, only to bo cooly told that ho would puv whon ho had the ncoossary funds. In vain 1 throatonod prosecution, civilly nnd criminally, and I think that all we can do is to accopt Mr. Wells noto lor tho sum duo. Tho books of ox-Treasurer Lan caster wore, I regret to say, in a most unsatisfactory condition. The report of tho present treasurer will show you more, and should have cartful con sideration. 1 recommend that tho in coming president he instructed to bring suit for tho sum due the asso ciation, and that aro not properly ac counted for in the ex treasurer's books. In tho meantime I have ordered new certificates issued tj those who olaim to havo paid the ex treasurer as the only means of a prompt and equitblo sottlei"eot. This of cotirso, shows a material inoroase in active member ship. Tho treasurer's report shows a members delinquent list amounting to $1,01'.!, and that many owo as much as $S or $10. This is as un satisfactory as it is wrong and makes it more imperative that tho associa tion should be run on business pr'noi pals. I would thcreforo recommend that all the members who pay dues for 1SUI-1802 bo regarded as members of tho asso ciation in good standing, or failing this, they be dropped from the roll, as in the latter case their retention would be impolitic and useless. In this year, alas, as in other years, death has invaded our membership and gathered in A. II. Harving, Earl Barron, T. S. Kupfer, A. 11. btevens and Moritz Kalteyer I could pay glowing testimonials to the virtues and abilities of these gent.emen, and would gladly do so, but there is a proper time for all things and their memory will, no doubt, he more ap propriately honored during this con vention. We are as kid to send delegates to the seventh International Pharmaceuti cal Congress to be held in Chicago in 1S93, and believing this to be advisa ble for mutual intetests, I recommend that this should be done. The position and prospect of this association is one on the wholo satis factory, but unquestionably more harmony, unity and enterprise is de sirablo. The association belongs to all members and, therefore, all should be alike interested in its progress and success. If this were done the asso ciation would take the leading posi tion in kindred organizations of a like character. Personlly, I thank you all for the honor you have conferred upon me and for many courtesies you have shown in aiding me in the discharge cf those duties, 1 have endeavored hon estly to perform I am greatful to all the citizens of Waco for the courteous reception.
