THE CAMP MEETING. ELECTED FIELD SECY.
Secretary Caine Urges its
Large Crowd In Attend
ance. Meeting Closes
Rev. Isaac D. Borders To
' Give Up His Work In
Rev. Isaac D. Borders, pastor
of the Second Methodist church
of Columbus, has been elected
Field Secretary of the Sunday
Use by Doctors and
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
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.
The Cotton Market.
The government report on the
condition of the cotton crop was
received at the local office of
Messrs. Hayward, Harris & Co.

occasioned no decided fluctuation
in prices. In Alabama, Missis
sippi, Georgia, Arkansas and
Northeast Texas some improve
ment is noted, while in Missouri,
Oklahoma and Indian Territory
the conditions are reported as
being satisfactory. The com
plaint of shedding is general
throughout the cotton belt. Bolls
are opening rapidly and picking
is in progress.
At the close of business yester
day afternoon New York spots

last Saturday afternoon, there
has passed into the great beyond
a man who was at one time a
leading citizen of Columbus and
who for many years was promi

was a native of Georgia, having
been born in that State eighty
three years ago, but in early
manhood came to Columbus and
established himself in business.

famous firm of Hudson, Humph
ries & Hudson, which for a period
of about thirty years carried on
an extensive mercantile business
in the building now occupied by

firm was organized about 1858,
and during its existence was con
sidered not only the leading
mercantile establishments of
Columbus but of East Missis

very suddenly, having beea due
to heart failure. Deceased is
survived by two daughters, Mrs.
H. W. Manning, of St. Joseph,

who is now traveling in Europe,
and by one son, Mr, Jack Hud
son, who resides in Texas.

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

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

them, so only a small number
