THE CAMP MEETING. ELECTED FIELD SECY. Secretary Caine Urges its Large Crowd In Attend ance. Meeting Closes To-morrow. NEW PHARMACOPEIA. Rev. Isaac D. Borders To ' Give Up His Work In This City. Rev. Isaac D. Borders, pastor of the Second Methodist church of Columbus, has been elected Field Secretary of the Sunday Use by Doctors and Druggists. Cemetery. Mr. S. L. Caine, of the firm of Johnson & Caine, of this city, who is secretary of the State Board of Pharmaceutical Exami ners, has issued a circular in which he calls attention to ,the fact that it is very necessary for the pharmacists and practicing physicians of theState to acquaint themselves -with the various preparations which appear in the new pharmacopeia which is to be introduced for general use on the first of September. The secretary says that the new pharmacopeia is very im portant, as the health of the peo ple depends entirely upon the sizes of the doses of medicine administered to them, and in the new book there occur many changes. For instance, the phy sician who has heretofore been using a 35 per cent, tincture aconite must now use a 10 per cent, tincture, and instead of a 10 per cent, syrup of iodide he must use a 5 per cent, syrup unless he specifies U. S. P., 1900 which numeral is liable to be overlooked. Mr. Caine says he hopes that in order to avoid "confusion every druggist will consider the case as warranting action in protect ing his customers as well as car rying out the specific details of his calling, since the apothecary 's little more than the physician's cook. For the benefit of those who expect to go before the State board of pharmaceutical exami ners on October 1st Mr. Caine states that the pharmacopeia of 1900 will be regarded as the of ficial standard at that time, while all subsequent examinations will be based on the revised edition.

Among the improvements and innovations inaugurated in Columbus during the past few years none have become more popular or brought more pleas- to the people than the public park which has been established at Bradford's square. The Citi zens' Band has been giving three concerts a week there for some time past, and during the past few weeks many improve ments have been made. A fine system of walks has been laid, more lights have been put in and the fountain has been completed. Mayor Gunter has made arrange ments to secure a supply of gold fish for this fountain, and the first shipment will arrive at an early date. It is not known just how the fish will thrive, as the alum which the city water con tains may prove harmful to them, so only a small number will at first be placed in the basin which surrounds the fountain, and if they live others will be secured. The Ladies Auxiliary has been organized to assist in the work of maintaining the park and de fraying the expenses of the con certs. The first entertainment to be given under the auspices of the Ladies' Auxiliary will take place Friday night, Sept. 1st, at which time there will be an elaborate vocal program in ad dition to the legular band con certs.
