Your customers expedt genuine Aspirin — "Bayer 
Tablets of Aspirin." They know from tremendous 
advertising throughout the Dominion that there is only 

one genuine Aspirin — "Bayer," that tablets without the name "Bayer" are not 

Aspirin at all. 

Absolutely No German interest 

"Bayer Tablets of Aspirin" are the same world-famous Aspirin 
prescribed by physicians for nineteen years. But they are entirely 
Canadian — made in Canada by a Canadian Company, all rights being 
purchased from the United States Government. 


Stock double quantity now all three sizes. No chance to lose, because we will 
redeem "Bayer" packages for price paid any time you say. A "Bayer" display in window 
or on counter will pay bigger than any other effort you could make. Write for a "Bayer" 
display to-day. No charge.

The best selling proprietary 
in Canada 



""" Pie<S*N-CO0LIHC 



Can now be had in pre-war 

Like other successful products Eno's Fruit Salt 
pays the price of success by being imitated in 
would-be substitutes which cost less and do less. 
During the last three or four years of war-forced 
shortage many dealers — in an honest effort to 
satisfy their customers — were foolish enough to try 
to sell these substitutes, which hurt their trade and 
reputation for quality. 

Now, those who know the value of Eno's in regu- 
lating the system and keeping it pure, will not accept 

The wise wholesalers appreciated this factand when 
they could get the genuine Eno's theypushed its sale. 
We are glad to announce that all live wholesalers 
and 90 % of the retailers are well stocked to-day. 
A word of warning— Keep a large stock on hand, 
for Eno's Fruit Salt is the best selling proprietary 
in Canada.

Successful Convention of C. Ph. A. at Montreal 

For four days from August 1 6 to 20 much business of interest to the drug trade 
of the Dominion transacted — Attendance was good and entertainment excellent. 

Reported by A STAFF EDITOR. 

THE annual convention of the Canadian Pharma- 
ceutical Association which was held in Montreal 
for four days from August 16 to "20. can well be 
termed a most successful event. The attendance was 
large and representative, with delegates present from 
all the provinces of the Dominion; the various prob- 
lems brought up for consideration were given serious 
consideration, with the rank and file of the conven- 
tion taking a prominent part in the debate ; while the 
decision was freely expressed that the association 
should make a genuine effort to extend its activities 
and place Canadian pharmacy on a still higher plane 
than it occupies at the present time. 

To Take a Step Forward 

There was much discussion at the convention on the 
subject of an organizer. The opinion was freely ex- 
pressed that the association had come to a point 
where it must either advance or go back. To advance 
it must get the pharmacists of Canada to take greater 
interest in its affairs and at the same time do more to 
protect and benefit the interests of the drug trade of 
the Dominion. The proposal of a high salaried organ- 
izer with a secretary and properly equipped office 
was received with great enthusiasm. It was finally 
decided that the association should not attempt to 
take too big a step at first-. Nevertheless, the prin- 
ciple was approved and the delegates from the vari- 

ous provinces asked to put the proposition before their 
various provincial organizations of increasing the 
yearly contribution from the present amount of 50 
cents per member to $5.00. It will be a year before 
the replies of the various provinces can be received 
and any definite action taken. In the meantime an 
effort will be made to raise funds by voluntary sub- 
scription to carry on propaganda work and lay the 
foundation for something of an extensive nature later 

The reports of the various standing committees 
presented during the last day of the convention con- 
tained many imporant recommendations that came in 
for a great deal of discussion. As a result it was mid- 
night of the last day before the election of officers 
for the ensuing year was finally disposed of. The 
nominating committee failed to agree on nominees for 
the position of president, vice-president and secretary- 
treasurer and the convention at large had to nomin- 
ate and vote on these officers. R. C. Fuller, of Am- 
herst. N.S., and John E. Tremble, of Montreal, were 
nominated for the position of president: Frank J. 
Hoag. of Kingston, (.int.. was the only nominee for 
vice-president and was elected by acclamation: while 
Geo. E. Gibbard. of Toronto, and E. Guerin, of Mont- 
real, were nominated for secretary-treasurer, the 
former being elected.

ship the Mayor of Montreal, Hon. Mederic Martin, 
member of the Legislative Council of the Province of 
Quebec, who in speeches both in English and French 
extended a civic welcome and handed over the keys 
of the city to the visiting delegates. He had some- 
thing to say of the unjustness of taxing the public's 
medicine. In replying for the Maritime Provinces. 
Hon. Geo. Hughes, of Charlottetown, P.E.I.. made 
special reference to these remarks. Henry Watters.

E. S. Knowlton drew attention to the fact that 
every member had a perfect right to take part in dis- 

Discussion on Last Year's Minutes 

The convention was called to order at 10.45 on Tues- 
day morning with President Barnabe- in the chair. 
A discussion took place on the minutes of the Win- 
nipeg meeting. E. S. Knowlton, of Vancouver, drew 
attention to an omission in regard to a supplement- 
ary report on wood alcohol. He moved that with its 
inclusion that the minutes be approved. It was sec- 
onded by M. Albert. An amendment was introduced 
by Henry Watters and Frank J. Hoag that the 
minutes be not adopted until! they were examined for 
other omissions. It was finally decided to appoint a 
committee of Messrs. Geo. Gibbard, E. Nesbitt, Henry 
Watters, E. S. Knowlton and J. E. Tremble to ex- 
amine the minutes, make any corrections and bring in 
for approval at a later session. 

President J. E. Barnabe next read his presidential 
message which was referred to the Resolutions Com- 
mittee. Secretary Gibbard read a communication

referred to the Committee on Commercial Interests. 
A letter was also read from the Wholesalers' Associa-

Wednesday Morning 

Tuesday afternoon was spent in a delightful motor 
trip around the Island of Montreal! with supper at 
Laval Sur Lac Golf Club. When the session was 
opened on Wednesday morning it was announced that 
President J. E. Barnabe was unable to be present and 
preside on account of illness, so his place was taken 
by R. C. Fuller, vice-president of the association. A 
motion fathered by F. J. Hoag, of Kingston, ex 
ing the regrets of the association for the inability of 
the president to be present was passed. Ed. Vadbon- 
coeur, of Montreal, was elected as associate chairman 
and took charge of the meeting. A telegram was read 
from J. A. Stewart, M.B., of Perth, regretting that 
he had been delayed from getting to the meeting of 
the association on account of business matters. A 
telegram was also received from the Board of Trade 
of Fort William, Out., extending an invitation to the 
association to hojld its next annual meeting in that 
city and pointing out the advantages of its location. 

The committee appointed to examine the minutes 
of the Winnipeg meeting suggested that the refer- 
ence to wood alcohol that has been incorporated in 
the minutes be deleted and the fact that the com- 
mittee desired to continue its deliberations be in- 
serted. With these changes the minutes were adopted. 

On motion of Messrs. J. E. Tremble ami E. Nes- 
bitt, F. S. Mearns. solicitor of the association, was 
added to the Legislative Committee and the conven- 
tion decided that he be given full privileges of a 
member of the C. Ph. A. during the convention.

When the afternoon session opened \V. Rutherford, 
of Nelson, BJC., extended an invitation to the

scussion took place as to how the new officers 
sociatiori should be nominated, and how the 
nominating committee should be appointed. It was fin- 
ally decided that a committee of one man from each 
province be appointed to act as a nominating committee 
and to bring in a recommendation as to the place of 
next meeting. The committee appointed was as fol-

F. J. Hoag. of Kingston, brought up the matter of 
discounts given by wholesale and pharmaceutical 
houses. He said it was rumored that the present cash 
discount of 2 per cent, for payment in 30 days was to 
be done away with. He thought the association should 
protest against any such action as it was now a diffi- 
cult matter for the retailers to maintain profits. 

H. "Willis, of Quebec City, expressed the view that 
it would be better for all concerned if there were no 
discount, as the wholesaler merely added it on 
to his selling price. J. A. Goyer protested this. He 
said that when the discount was reduced from 5 to 
■2 per cent, that prices on many lines remained the 
.same so that the retailer was merely losing three per 
cent en those lines.

Suggested Schedule 

for Prescriptions 

On Tuesday evening the Committee on Commercial 1 . 
Interests brought in its report. The chief feature of 
it was the suggestion of an organizer for the associa- 
tion with a secretary and stenographer and a proper- 
ly equipped office. A proposed schedule of prescrip- 
tion prices to serve as a guide to the retail trade was 
also incorporated in the report. These prices were as 

follows : 

Eight-ounce mixture. $1.50; 6-ounce. $1.25; 4-ounce, 
$] 00; '■'< ounce, 85 cents; 2-ounce, 75 cents: 1-ounce 60 

Half ounce ointments. 75 cents; 2-ounce ointments. 

Eye lotions. $1.00. 

Powders, etc., $1.00 per dozen. 

Tin. report expressed the idea that no prescription 
could lie profitably dispensed for less than 50 cents. 
er use of tli- word "pharmacist" was suggested. 
»proval was expressed of small sales that do qo1 
bear their share of expense; a more general use ,,f the 
metric system was advocated: the two suggestions 
for names for wood alcohol of Lignene and Lignol 
were brought forward. 

Discussion on Subject of Organizer 
E. s. Knowlton, who presented the report, expressed 
the association has not been functioning 
al i' shOUtld. The committee was 

- i, i; thai something should be 

that it was thoughl that a good organizer 
I on an ,i thai ■ prove an u 

M. Albert, of Montreal, .said that the druggists had 
coiiie to a time when they were not contented with 
old-time methods and that if we wished to accomplish 
anything we must be prepared to pay for it. The 
druggist pays for all other kinds of insurance and 
why not for protection against adverse Legislation. 

H. Willis, of Quebec City, pointed out that the war 
had demonstrated the need of a master mind in the 
direction of any important undertaking. That is 
what the association needed. The proper vision is 
necessary and it is only a man with executive ability 
that can give us that vision. The druggist gives money 
to various organizations that benefit him little or 
none. Why not pay the same amount to something 
that will directly benefit his business? He suggested 
that someone outside the trade would have to be se- 
cured for the position. J. A. Goyer expressed the 
same opinion. M. Allard. of Montreal, was also an- 
other speaker on the subject. Geo. E. Gibbard, the 
secretary of the association, told of the fight that had 
been put up by the association officers in the past and 
expressed the view that they had fought a good tight 
considering the means they had at their disposal. He 
was greeted with applause and cheers. 

Hon. Geo. E. Hughes, of Charlottetown, P.E.I.. was 
glad to sec the spirit of enthusiasm for organization 
and said the druggist could not afford to be behind the 
other trades and professions in this regard. He sug- 
gested that each man take up the fight individually 
too. Let him be an organizer in his own community 
and take legislative matters up with his local repre- 
sentative in parliament. Rattee was of the same 
opinion. R. A. McRuer. of St. Boniface, Man., and 
Leo Ryan, of Montreal, organizer of the local finance 
committee, ailso spoke on the subject. 

Discussion on Prescription Pricing 

A. R. Farley, of Hull, Que., stated that he had been 
selling prescriptions at lower prices than those men- 
tioned in the report of the committee. He felt, how- 
ever, that he had not been getting sufficient and that 
he intended asking higher figures in an effort to get 
a fair return for his work. 

T. P. Hartley, of Toronto, said that the trouble with 
the average druggist in prescription pricing was that 
he was afraid of the man down the street. He pointed 
out the important position that the pharmacist holds. 
The physician may be the best, may give careful 
diagnosis, and take care in writing the prescription, 
but all his work would be undone unless the pharma- 
cist exercises care and .skill. A statemenl of his that 
appealed to the convention was "You will nevi 
$1.50 lor an 8-ounce prescription if you only ask $1.25. 
Vou won't gel the price till you ask it." 

Henry Watters, of Ottawa, said that their experi- 
ence in recent years had been that it is just as sasy 
to get $1.50 for an 8-ounce mixture as 75 cents. "We 
r think of the price the other fellow will quote. 
We make the point thai lower prices mean inferior 

G. A. Lapointe pointed out that no long ago cough 
syrups in his store d nenilly sold at 25 cents. A oil 
cent line was introduced and it sold so well that a 

$1.00 was put in stock. He has not sold the 

smaller size for two years. A campaign was also put 
on to sell larger sizes ami quantities of smaller lines 

that frequently sold I'm- ." tits. Many of these have 

been raised to 10. 1.") 'JO and even 25 cenl sizes. He 
expressed the opinion that a customer who had paid 
an eye specialist ten. fifteen or twenty-five dollars tor 

September. 1920 



his work would refuse au eye prescription that the 
druggist would ask only $1.00 for. He asks up to 
$2.00. This is not high. The person who buys choco- 
lates pays three cents or more apiece for them. Two 
dollars for an eye lotion only means about two cents 
per drop. 

C. E. Swaisland. of Kitchener. Out., felt that a great 
deal of the work that the association has to do was 
a matter of propaganda and the use of printers' ink. 
He thought there was nothing stronger. He thought 
it could be effectively used to educate the public to 
ask their physicians for a prescription be to filled by 
a qualified and careful druggist instead of a prescrip- 
tion filled by the doctor himself. 

Lignene was the word selected by the convention 
as being the best substitute for wood alcohol and the 
Legislation Committee is to put it before the Depart- 
ment of Health at Ottawa in an effort to have it

Accounting Problems Discussed j 


A feature of the morning session on Wednesday 
was the reading of an excellent paper on "Accounting 
for the Retail Druggist" by G. A. Burbidge, of Halifax. 
This will be reproduced in full in the next issue of The 
RetaiJ Druggist. In introducing his paper he pointed 
oitt that it was desirable that there be some standard- 
ized system of book-keeping among retail druggists 
so that when accounting matters were discussed that 
each dealer would have the same understanding of 
terms. Mr. Burbidge has departmentized his business 
so that he can pick out the profitable and unprofitable 
lines. If a department is not proving as profitable as 
it should it is packed up or done away with. By this 
system of checking up he found some departments 
that were paying a very much smaller percentage of 
profit than he thought. These were put on a profit 
paying basis. One department showed a loss when 
charged up with its proper share of expense and was 
taken out. He stated that he found prescriptions, 
drugs and non-secret remedies three of his best de- 

Druggist Who Maintains Perpetual Inventory 

H. Robert, of Montreal, told of a system of per- 
petual inventory for each item of stock in his store 
that lie maintains. He is to set out the system in full 
and forward to The Retail Druggist for publication. 
He claims that the first year after the introduction of 
the system that he made $3,000 more than the pre- 
vious year. 

He stated that for a number of years lie operated 
his store pretty well on guesswork and found that the 
profits were not as satisfactory as they should be. 
He finally came to the decision that he must improve 
his system ill order to his profits, 'flu- pre- 
ent inventory system is the result. Each clerk lias a 
sheet on which he notes every article sold. This re- 
cord allows the book-keeper to keep a perpetual in- 
ventory of each item of stock. The stock when 
counted should agree with the inventory. He says 
that it is not much work to check up a whole depart- 
ment. Tin' tobacco department can he checked up 
in three hours. He has eight departments in the store. 
There is also a record kept .if supplies and Ik- even 

knows if there is any breakage which is not recorded 
by the clerks. He says the plan is a great help in 
buying. He knows the exact amount he has on hand 
and how they have sold as well as the price paid and 
the name of the firm purchased from. The inventory 
is posted every day so that in case of fire the store 
would Uave absolute proof of loss. The cash register 
checks up any neglect of the clerks to list articles sold 
on the necessary sheet. A close check can also be 
kept on the clerks as to whether they are earning their 

Canadian Formulary Widely Used 

J. A. Goyer presented the report of the Committee 
on the Canadian Formulary. It was felt that it was 
time to examine and improve the Formulary in keep- 
ing with the advance since it was printed in 1915. It 
is gratifying to know that it is so extensively used and 
so greatly recognized as an authority. The work of 
compiling a new Formulary will require the co-opera- 
tion of the various provincial bodies and it was sug- 
gested that suggestions should be invited at once. 
Many of the preparations contained in it have found 
favor with the medical profession. It is a proper 
time to enlarge the Formulary and make it appeal 
even more to medical men. 

Want Advancement in Pharmaceutical Education 
The secretary-treasurer read his financial report 
which was adopted. Prof. H. H. Gaetz read the re- 
port of the Committee on Pharmacuetical Edueatiou. 
It urged the adoption of a uniform matriculation as 
the first step in securing uniformity that would allow 
of reciprocity between the various provinces. It also 
recommended a two years' course for students with a 
total of one thousand teaching hours and the ap- 
pointment of a Syllabus Committee. The report also 
urged that all druggists carry out their duty to their 
apprentices. Prof. Moore spoke on the report and 
suggested that the association should give more time 
to work in connection with the uplift of pharmacy. 
G. E. Burbidge suggested that the colleges be made 
more use of by pharmacists in search of information 
for use in their dispensing problems. Scientific phar- 
macists might well be invited to conventions t'"> give 
talks to druggists. 

Legislation Matters 
F. S. Mearns read the report of the Legislation 
Committee. It dealt with the Patent Medicine A \ 
an amendment to which it was found impossible to 
put through at the last session ; the work in connec- 
tion with the Opium and Xarcotic Drug Act. and the 
removal of the stamp tax. He pointed out the unfair- 
ness of the druggist having to pay a fee in order to 
sell narcotic lines — in other words to practice his pro- 
fession. He stated that word had been received that 

tlie Department of Health would supply the uei 

forms for complying with the Xarcotic !>' ■:_ A ' 

Express Appreciation of Work of J. A. Stewart, MP 
A motion was brought forward by ; that 

the matter he taken up of getting the Government to 
adopt the Pharmacopoea of 1 !U4 as authoritative in 
Canada and have it so that in the future new addi- 
tions of it would automatically become authoritative. 
A resolution was brought forward and unanimously 
carried to thank ■' . A. Stewart. MP., for the 
lent work done in the Dominion House on behalf of the 
tada. The Kf- - uttee 

brought in votes of thanks to all those who had con- 
tributed to the success i vention.

Much Discussion on Report of Finance Committee 

The report of the Finance Committee was broughl 

in just before the close of the afternoon session on 

day, it approved of the principle of an organ 

jugg sted that a salary of $3,500 1111-: 
start instead of the Larger sum that bad been 
by a member. It recommended that dele- 
gates present the proposition to their various provin- 
irganizations and send their members back to 
the meeting next year prepared to endorse a fee of 
$5 per member. It suggested that voluntary sub- 
scription be invited for the present year and that 
an active campaign he carried on by means of letters 
and the trade papers and through the provincial as- 
sociations to lay the foundation for the larger work 
in the interests of Canadian pharmacy that it is 
planned to later inaugurate. 

The greater part of the evening session was taken up 
in a discussion of the suggestions put forth in the 
report of the Finance Committee. Many valuable sug- 
gestions wen- put forth that should prove of assist- 
ance to The new executive and in finally carrying out 
the work planned. It was well after midnight before 
the final session was wound up.

a hearty welcome. I thank you for being present in 
such good numbers and for coming from so far. I 
wish that this meeting will prove to be of an espe- 
cially beneficial and enjoyable character.

if the war. a period of 

four years. Tin- 1 stitution was revised. Commer- 
cial and Educational matters were discussed and the 
different committees reported progress. The enter- 
tainments were 101 such a grand scale that we bad 
very little time to discuss these important matters. I 
hope this year that the' reports of the different com- 
mittees will give entire satisfaction to our members. 

Meetings of the Executive 

After consulting the members a few meetings were 
held in Ottawa to fighl the proprietary medicine. 
narcotic and .stamp laws as 'he government wanted 
to revise them. After many lengthy interviews with 
the authorities we partly succeeded as follows:-- 

1. The stamp tax is thrown on the manufacturers. 
There is a difference of opinion as to the benefit of 
this, but I, for one. am very satisfied that this burden 
is taken from the druggists and that the different lines 
are eliminated altogether. 

2. The proprietary medicine laws have been changed 
so that only those who wish to keep their formulas 
secret have to pay. Those who print the formulas on 
their labels are exempt. 

3. As regards the narcotic law the committee suc- 
ceeded in having the authorities authorize the use of 
narcotics in preparations in such quantities that could 
be proved medicinal ami not dope. Same to be ap- 
proved by the advisory board named by the govern- 
ment to that effect. 

Educational Matters 

I have received correspondence and have been told 
by men wdio are qualified to state their opinion that 
the feeling is that the C. P. A. is performing the 
function of a Retail Association rather than that of 
a Pharmaceutical Association, and that it would be 
greatly in the interest of Canadian Pharmacy if it 
would redirect its efforts. There is no reason why it 
should cease its activities along commercial lines, but 
it should be more pronouncedly educational and pro- 

I endorse this opinion and also insert here a few- 
topics for consideration which I received from Prof. 
G-aetz, of Alberta. It would certainly be agreeable 
m each delegate and every member if the Education- 
al committee would study these suggestions and make 
reports on them. 

Topics for Consideration 

1. Cniform Matriculation requirements. Sug 
ed: Arts Matriculation or its equivalent. 

2. Uniform apprenticeship or "student service' 

:'.. Equivalence if not uniformity in College courses 
with minimum requirements for registration. Sug-

may not be destroyed.

Suggests a Paid Secretary 

Gentlemen, our Secretary, during the past year has 
done his utmost for our association, but having his 
own private business to attend to, he has not been able 
to devote all his time to us. The funds of the asso- 
ciation dispose of but a very minimum remuneration 
for this purpose. I have talked this matter over with 
many prominent druggists:, here and elsewhere, and 
all are of the opinion that a secretary .should be ap- 
pointed with a salary sufficient to afford him to de- 
vote all his time and energy to our interests. He 
would be ready to meet and follow any legislation at 
Ottawa, when such legislation would be harmful to 
our profession or trade. I would ask the finance com- 
mittee to study this matter and see if they could not 
raise funds for this purpose. If we wish our associa- 
tion to remain in existeuce we must have the neces- 
sary withal and I feel that they will succeed. I hope 
every delegate will take this matter into serious con- 
sideration as it is for the life or death of our asso- 
ciation. If the association has not proved as benefi- 
cial in the past as it may have been it is not due to its 
executive nor members but simply through lack of 


Our finances are very low. and you will see by the 
report of the Treasurer that our safe holds more ac- 
counts than negotiable bills. 

Province of Quebec 50th Anniversary 
I am pleased, gentlemen, to tell you that this con- 
vention coincides with the 50th anniversary of the 
Province of Quebec. I hope that the entertainments 
the reception committee have prepared for you will 
leave you a good impression of our city and of your 
eastern confreres. Next year, the Ontario College of 
Pharmacy will celebrate its jubilee. In the name of 
the Canadian Pharmaceutical Association, let me ex- 
tend to this educational institution my best wishes 
and congratulations for the good and steady work 
they have done in this half century and wish them 
prosperity for the future. 

The Alcohol Question 

The use of alcohol has also been looked into, but 
as this matter depends a lot on provincial law. each 
province has looked after its own interests. If I have 
put before you the alcohol situation it is "ii account 
of the increased taxation. I would suggest that the 
legislative committee take this matter into considera- 
tion and study the case and show the government the 
- ry of providing industrial alcohol for manu- 
facturing purposes. 

For that reason, I would -ii!. r i. r ''^ that a special 
committee of the association meet a similar commit- 
tee of the manufacturers, jobbers ami pharmaceutical 
men to discuss the matter and present the claim or 
make the suggestion to the federal author 

1 hope, gentlemen, that I have as extensively as 
possible treated every question. 

You will have the pleasure, at this conventii 
hear the reading of a paper on A National System 
of Price Standards for the Pharmacist," due to the 
kindness of Mr. Henry Watters, of Ottawa. 

Mr. Knowlton, of Vancouver, will also int. 'rest you 
on "Commercial interests.'" I think that von will 

appreciate the work of those gentlemen and of all 
those who devote themselves to the welfare of the 

In conclusion, gentlemen, let me again thank you 
for the honor conferred in electing me your president. 
If I have been able to fulfill that charge with honor, 
I gratefully acknowledge the large support a\: 
sistanee afforded me by the secretary and members 
of the executive council of the association. 

Respectfullv submitted.

convention. It started on Monday evening with 
a reception at the Place Viger Hotel ac which the 
ladies were in attendance. Dancing was the chief 
feature of the evening. Lunch was also served. 

On Tuesday afternoon a mo'or trip was taken 
around the Island of Montreal passing through Mont- 
real. Westmount. Lachine. Dixie, St. Anne de Belle- 
vue and back along the north of the island to Laval 
Sur Lac where supper was served at the club house of 
the Laval Sur Lac Golf Club. It was a magnificent 
repast. The return to the city was made late in the 

For those of the party who had not joined the ex- 
cursion, a smoker was provided by Messrs. Chas. E. 
--- & to., in the Victoria Rides Armory. Catheart 
Street, where refreshments were served and a very 
enjoyable concert, exercising the talent of Joe Beau- 
champ, Bert Mason, Bevin Giles. Jock Hunter, and 
other well known entertainers, was provided. A fea 
ture of the evening's entertainment wa> a couple of 
four-round boxing bouts between George Gerardin 
and Kid O'Blay and Young Gallon and Kid Jackson, 
who gave a very good exhibition of this time honored

Inspect Plant of L. E. Waterman Co. 

(in Thursday a visit was paid to the planl of the L. 

11. Waterman Co.. Limited, manufacturers of the 



September, 1920 

Waterman [deal Fountain Pen. The trip was made 
to St. Lambers where the factory is located, by motor 
busses, passing over the famous Victoria Bridge which 
spans the St. Lawrence. The party alighted at the 
new Waterman factory, and were conducted through 
the plant. Bach department was visited in turn, and 
1' of guides explained the various processes of 
ruction to the interested visitors. 

The factory itself, is a modern building, well light- 
ed and ventilated, with every convenience that makes 
for efficient work under the most pleasant conditions. 
The gold pen department and the ink bottiling depart- 
ment attracted the druggists who evinced a great deal 
of interest in the up-to-date labor-saving machinery 
used in these departments. All questions were cour- 
teously answered, and special demonstrations given 
by the obliging staff. The visitors were shown the 
construction of the fountain pen through every stage 
from the raw rubber to the finished product. 
' After the tour of inspection, the guests were served 
with light refreshments and smokes, and were given 
souvenirs of their visit in the form of fountain pens. 
Many Visit the Gillette Factory 

Another plant that was visited by many of the 
members of the trade while in Montreal was that of 
the Gillette Safety Razor Company. Visitors were 
greatly interested in the unique process of manufac- 
turing razors and blades and the care taken in both 
making and inspecting the products of the plant. This 
company has shown a remarkable progress since it 
introduced itself to the Canadian people in 1906. The 
plant has been constantly enlarged until it now has 
a floor space of 48,000 square feet. The ouput is over 
2500 razors and 18.000 dozen blades per dav. The 
salesmen of the company, headed by H. S. Beeeher, 
advertising manager, were active in the entertainment

A most interesting retrospect of the progress of 
pharmaceutic;!. 1 science in Canada was brought to the 
gathering by the presence of Mr. H. F. Jackson, of 
Montreal, who was present as a guest, and who recalled 
his association with the movement for the first or- 
ganization of pharmacists in Canada, over 50 years 
ago. The organization of the Quebec association, 
whicdi was the first in Canada, took place in 1870. 
Previous to that. Mr. Jackson recalled there were 
only about 15 druggists in the city of Montreal, in- 
cluding wholesale houses, and there were five who held 
licenses from the College of Physicians and Surgeons 
of the Province of Quebec. Mr. Oontant, another of 
the oldest living druggists of the city, was also pres-

Customer. try who are daily zealously en- 

deavoring to expand their busi- 
ness, and yet there is probably not one but who. if he 
will stop, scratch his head and think, but will be com- 
pelled to acknowledge that there are certain probable 
customers whom he has neglected to systematically 
cultivate. Some have probably slipped from his me- 
mory altogether. 

To secure as a customer every individual within his 
community is of course beyond the possibility of any 
one retailer. Only he who enjoys a monopoly in an 
isolated community could ever even dream of such a 
thing. , 

But the fact that there are always some to be ob- 
tained who he has not srot is an inspiration to the 
merchant who is ambitious to increase his business. 

He knows perfectly well that he cannot get every- 
body to buy from him, but he at the same time real- 
izes that the more he intelligently tries to get the more 
he will secure. This is an unalterable law. It is a 
good thing to have ideals even if we do not ever fully 
attain to them. 

As a preliminary to an organized effort to secure as 
customers certain desirable people in his neighborhood 
it would be well for the dealer to prepare a list of such, 
revising it as occasion demands. To this list letters. 
circulars and advertising matter of various kinds 
should be sent from time to time. Occasionally a spe 
eial letter might be sent to a number of people selected 
from the list. This would be advisable when certain 
lines had been taken into stock which, from experience, 
it had been learned was likely to suit their tastes. 

The cost entailed would of course be regulated by 

the extent to which the system was employed, but if 

properly done there can be no doubt in regard to its

How Many Do Clerks in an enterprising store used 
You Sell? to be urged to frequently consider 

the number of people who came 
to their counter and went away without buying any- 
thing and endeavor to figure out the reason for so many 
non-sales. The same thing should be considered in re- 
gard to window display. 

It is not the fellow v - the most but he who 

hits the most, who bags the largest number of birds 

when on a hunting expedition. The actual number of 
killing hits are all that count with the hunter who 
cares tor more than to shoot to make a big noise. The 
number of sales a window or other advertisement 
makes is the big consideration with the retailer who is 
not doing business for his own enjoyment. It surely 
the number of people who pass our place of busi- 
ness every day. nor the percentage who stop to admire 
our attraction in the show windows, nor even those 
folks who walk into our store that count in actual sales. 
It is the percentage of customers, people whq buy and 
buy more than they first intended to buy that runs the 
tape around the reel on our cash register and makes for 
an attractive bank deposit every morning. Every time 
a man. woman or child passes our store we have a shot. 
How many of these passers-by are really passers by 
and get through our screen? Is it not time we used a 
different brand of shells and assured ourselves of more 
actual hits than we are averaging at present? Do we 
sell as many as we should? 

The Merchant's It costs the retailer more for to keep 
Insurance his stock fully protected against loss 

by fire than it did six years ago. not 
because rates are higher, but because under the higher 
prices ruling the total value of stock carried runs to 
large figures. 

For this reason many merchants are tempted to carry 
less insurance than their good sense tells them they 
should. This is certainly a mistake. Every dealer 
should protect himself and family as well as his 
creditors by keeping his stock adequately insured. 
The story is told well in the following advertisement 
of an insurance agent : 


"An aged widow for many years oper- 
ated a general store in southern Manitoba. 
Recently fire destroyed her $30,000 stock. 
She had but $6,000 insurance. Because her 
rate was higher than her neighbor's she 
thought she was saving money by refusing 
to safeguard the savings of a life time. Now 
she is dependent on the charity of her rela- 
tives. Moral: Keep safe." 
It is better to be safe than sorry. 


The present is a time when the dealer and his clerks 
might well dderable study to the science of 

window trimming because its value is becoming more 
apparent every day. Some of the rules for window 
display are easily set down, though necessarily in gen- 
eral terms. 

The character of the offering should always deter- 
mine whether the display is to impress by quantity or 
by distinctive individual quality. Merely sh< 
the products in the window is less than half of the 
good that may be accomplished by a skillful display.

Convention of Ontario Druggists on Sept. 21 and 22 

Ontario Retail Druggists' Association will hold annual convention 
in Toronto on Sept. 21 and 22 — A large attendance is expected. 

THE annual convention of the Ontario Retail 
Druggists' Association lakes place in Toronto on 
September 21 and 22. Every druggist of the 

province .should make an effort to be present for it is 
going to be an event of both pleasure and profit to 
all those who attend. 

Entertainment Features 

The executive officers have been hard at work on 
a programme that will prove attractive and valuable. 
3lisiness and pleasure has been well mixed. The 
headquarters will be at the King Edward HoteJ where 
the convention sessions will be held. Tuesday, the 
first day of the convention "'ill be largely taken up in 
sightseeing and entertainment. The morning will be 
occupied in receiving and registering delegates. In 
the afternoon there will be a drive around the city in 
motor ears followed by a supper and theatre party 
for all. ladies included. 

A Day of Solid Business 

Wednesday morning and afternoon will be taken up 
in solid business and there should be two worth-while 
sessions. It is felt that the present year is one of im- 
portance to the drug trade and that some real definite 
action should be taken at the convention of the drug- 
gists of the province to assure the safeguarding of 
their interests, particularly in regard to legislative 
matters. Good work was done by the officials of the 
association during the past year in the protection of 
the drug trade but the many matters that have arisen 
have demonstrated in a convincing manner the need 
of the retailers being organized and having men on the 
lookout for anything that may be detrimental to their 

Plan to be Present 

In the evening there will be a banquet in the Board 
of Trade Banquet Hall located on the top floor of the 
Royal Bank Building, the highest ,• mercial build- 
ing in the British Empire. There will also be a movie 
entertainment for the ladies with refreshments. 

There will be ample accommodation at the King 
Edward Hotel for all delegates who wish to have 
rooms at the convention headquarters. The date i- 
September 21 and 22. Make a point to be present and 
by it further your own interests as well as those oJ 
pharmacy in general.

The Soda Fountain advises the druggist to learn 
just how to paek his ice cream so that it will be at 
its best for serving purposes. If it is too hard, it is 
not pleasant to dispense or to eat; if it is mushy or 
soupy, it is far from agreeable. When you pack the 
ice cream, do it with a definite idea in mind — so much 
ice. so much salt. If it is too hard, you have used a 
little too much salt : if it is too soft, you have used 
too little. After you have learned just bow much id' 
each the particular type of insulation of your fountain 
calls for. you have a system that will guide you to 
having the ice cream just righl every time. Some 
men never get anywhere because they never trouble 
to analyze causes and results and can never depend 
uniformity ami success. 


Ice cream seems to he something more than an or- 
dinary food. A noted major general says; ■] have 
seen the boys come in from the long hard grind all 
fagged out by tie- heat and exertion. I have seen 
them eating cone after cone and in a fe ■■.•, minutes 
they wire readj for all kinds of horse play, 
seemed to be like men who had had a lone restful 
I would not have believed such a thing unless 
I bad seen the results with my own eves."

Your Wholesaler Has Them 

Under the amendment to the Opium and Narcotic 
Drug Act, which was passed at the recent session of 
Parliament, it is provided that the same shall come 
into force on a date to be fixed by proclamation of 
the Govemor-in-Council. 

It is the intention of the Department to have this 
Act proclaimed and come into force on or about 
September 1st. next. 

Under the new Act, all wholesa! • druggists, manu- 
facturers or dealers are required to obtain a license 
to deal in these drugs, for which an annual fee of 
twenty-five ($25' dollars is charged. All retail drug- 
gists who manufacture narcotic drugs, or prepara- 
tions containing the same, are required to obtain a 
license, for which an annual fee of five ($5) dollars 
is charged. All druggists, other than those who manu- 
facture, and every physician, veterinary surgeon and 
dentist is required to make a declaration that they 
are engaged in the sale or distribution of there drugs. 
Forms will be supplied by the Department on appli- 
cation to be filled in and returned as required under 
the Act. 

The Act also requires all druggists, whether whole- 
sale or retail, and all manufacturers to keep a record 
of their receipts, together with a record of the quan- 
tity manufactured, and a record of their sales. These 
records are required to be kept in a special book kept 
for this purpose, and after a prescribed form. 

Another important change under the new Act is 
the limiting of the number of ports in Canada at 
which these drugs may be imported or exported, and 
the provisions whereby opium and other drugs in- 
tended for export must be packed and marked in such 
a manner as to denote the contents of the package. 

Provision is made under the Act for the sale of 
preparations intended for internal use which do not 
contain more than two grains of opium, or more than 
one-fourth of a grain of morphine, or more than one- 
eighth of a grain of heroin, or more than one grain 
of godeine to the fluid ounce. Provided, however, that 
such preparations must be medicated to sufficiently 
preclude the possibility of their being purchased 
simply to obtain the narcotic effect, and further that 
such preparations must have printed on the label or 
wrapper in a conspicuous place the following warning: 
"It is unlawful to administer this preparation to a 
child under two years of age as it contains opium and 
is dangerous to its life." 

The maximum penalty for infraction of the Art has 
been increased (vnu five hundred $500) dollars to 
one thousand ' -40.000) dollars, and a minimum pen- 
alty of two hundred ' £20fP dollars is provided. 

It i.- the intention of the Department at a later date 
to furnish ajll druggists with a copy of the regulations, 
er with a copy of the Opium and Narcotic 
Drug Act. with amendments to date. 
Department of Health, Ottawa, July 28th. 1920.

Twentieth Century Photography 

Written for thd Retail Druggist by A. H. BOYD. 

SINCE the days of wet plates and the hundred- 
weight equipment, photography lias made rapid 
strides toward perfection. Up-to-date methods, of 
developing and printing together with the feather- 
weight camera has contributed to the upward trend 
in the photographic world. 

The word photography originated from the Greek 
words phos (light) and grapho (I write), which ad- 
miralty describes the process of reproducing images. 
In a s. ■mem-" it comprises the exposing of a sensitive 
plate or substance to tin- light, concentrated on an 
object at the correct focus. This plate after being 
treated with chemicals reproduces the object on its 

Need of Care in Developing 

The developing of plates or films is rather an intri- 
cate operation, as great care must be taken not to 
handle the sensitive material more than is necessary. 
Time is also a great factor as films and plates not 
developed to the proper density do not give good 

The necessary requisites to secure excellent results 
are : 

1. The best developers and fixers. 

2. A good actinometer. This latter is especially 
adapted to amateurs as it bears the same relation to 
light as a thermometer bears to heat — it gauges its 
intensity. For this purpose the "Watkins" watch- 
shaped meter will meet all the requirements of the 

This costs comparatively little as compared with 
the reduced wastage of plates and films by wrong 

l)eveloping is simpV the blackening by means of 
a chemical of the particles of silver bromide in the 
sensitive film which have been acted up by light dur- 
ing exposure. 

The darkest portions of the negative are known as 
the highlights, the intermediate portions the half- 
tones and the lightest portions the shadows. After 
immersing the plate in the developer the highlights 
appear first, then the half-tones and lastly the 
shadows. These transformations are optically visible, 
although all operations are simultaneous. These 

i 3 increase in density as long as the solution is in 

contact with the sensitive surface. After develop- 
ing, tie surface is hardened b\ some suitable fixer. 

There are about fifteen different chemicals ten, 

which excellent results have been oibtained, and we

When an amateur has become expert at developing 
plates or films, his next move is the producing id' the 
object on paper, commonly known a.s printing. This 
is delicate work at the beginning, but practice pro- 
duces both speed and perfection. 

Printing papers are of many grades and varieties, 
but some standard paper is the best for all round use. 
Bromide paper of one of the following grades ranks 
among the best known to the trade, very rapid, me- 
dium or very slow. Strong negatives with plenty of 
contrast should be printed on medium speed paper, 
or if very brilliant on fast paper. Weak negatives 
with little contrast require slow paper.

A druggist hit upon a little service stunt that helped 
him save a great deal of time in selling perfumes. He 
had a lot of little stickers printed which read: "To be 
sure of this same odor next time, have the bottle re- 
filled at the Pharmacy. Ask for Mo. 57." The 

perfumes were numbered and whenever he filled a 
for a customer he pasted one of these little 
.stickers on it and wrote in the number. This se 
to identify the particular odor to both customer and 
clerk. Once the customer had settled upon a certain 
perfume it was easy to sen

map of Canada surrounded by an attractive border. 
From the location of each branch of the company ran 
a ribbon which was attached to the window by a

Jassby's drug store at the corner of St. Catherine 
and Mansfield, Montreal, recently devoted a big front 
window to a display of fruit jellies. There were three 
round pedestals with piles of the candies arranged on 
them with a very orderly arrangement at the outside 
of the display. Pound boxes of the candy were dis- 
played on the window floor.

'A department devoted to stationery, books, post cards and associated lines 

The season is now at hand when the druggisl 

should make a real Strong effort to cash in on the 
trade that wilil be passing in school supplies. There 
is a double reason I'or courting this trade. In the firsl 

p]j n is in itself profitable business. Secondly, it 

attaches the children to the store and also exerts a 
powerful influence upon the older people. 

The manner of going after this trade will vary 
with circumstances. The dealer who is anyways 
favorably located to secure this trade will do well to 
devote a' window to appropriate Fines at the time of 

the opening of scl I. It will bring the lines before 

probable purchasers at a time when they are thinking 
of them. It will emphasize upon the public that you 
handle these lines in your store. 

A druggist whose store was a littf.e out of the regu- 
lar path of the scholars going to a nearby school, de- 
vised several plan.-, to net their trade. One plan 
just one of the manj used in the course of a school 
term- -was a little guessing contest that took some 
work and about a dollar's worth of school supplies 
and candy. 

Tin druggist cut up into irregular pieces the por- 
traits of tive well-known men. About six pieces of 
each portrait were made. Bach bunch was pasted 
onto a pieee of cardboard mixed up. of course, in 
order that the portrait could not be too easily identi- 
fied. Ii each case there was some outstanding feature 
to make it not too difficult. This card was used to 
interest the children: 


Write down the numbers that are on the cards and 
the names after them. We will give a prize to the six 
children who act in the first correct answers.

A Well Advertised 
Article is Half Sold 

The Marvel "Whirling Spray" is well 
advertised. It is easy to sell, always gives 
satisfaction, and pays the druggist a good 
profit. Why waste time trying to sell the 
customer a substitute or imitation which is 
less profitable and is usually unsatisfactory ? 

When you sell a Marvel you are sure the 
customer is satisfied, for no better goods 
can be made. We guarantee it against 
defects of any kind, and will gladly ex- 
change any Marvel which is found defec- 
tive and promptly reported.

as the latest and best improvement in vaginal 
Syringes. Particular attention is called to 
the fact that by reason of its peculiar con- 
struction the Marvel Syringe dilates and 
flushes the vagina with a volume of whirling 
spray, which smooths out the folds and per- 
mits the injection to come into contact with 
and cleansing the entire surface.
