EDITORIAL

The editorial board feels very honored in announcing that
the Proceedings of the thirty-seventh annual meeting of the
North Carolina Pharmaceutical Association will be pub-
lished as Volume II, Xuml>er 1, of the Carolina Journal
of Pharmacy.

This policy was decided upon by the members of the Asso-
ciation at Wrightsville Beach. It was also decided to make
the Journal the official organ of the Association, and to have
a copy of each issue sent to every member.

This very material endorsement by the members of the
State Pharmaceutical Association means much to those who
direct the destiny of the Journal. It proves to them that
their journalistic venture is thus far a success and is ap-
preciated.

PROCEEDINGS

OF THE

THIRTY-SEVENTH ANNUAL MEETING



Wkightsville Beach, N. C,

June 20, 21, 22, 1916.

Oceanic Hotel.

FIRST SESSION

The thirty-seventh annual meeting of the North Carolina
Pharmaceutical Association was called to order at eleven-
fifteen on the morning of June twentieth, by the President,
Edward Lawrence Tarkenton, of Wilson.

President Tarkenton : Fellow members, members of the
Traveling Mens Auxiliary, ladies and gentlemen:

It affords me great pleasure to welcome you to the thirty -
eeventh annual meeting of the North Carolina Pharmaceutical
Association. We are here from all parts of the State to dis-
cuss the problems that confront the druggists and to exchange
ideas for the benefit of the pharmacists of North Carolina.
If you have any grievance, or if you have gained anything
during the year that would benefit your fellow pharmacists,
we want you to let it be known. I will ask Bishop Darst to
open this convention with prayer.

(Invocation by Bishop Thomas C. Darst, of Wilmington.)

President Tarkenton : I will ask Mr. Elvington, the
local secretary, to introduce the gentleman who will welcome
you to this part of the State.

Mr. D. A. Elvington: Mr. Chairman, ladies and gen-
tlemen, brother druggists: I wish to introduce to you our
honored and esteemed Mayor, Mr. P. Q. Moore, who will



14 Carolina Journal of Pharmacy

welcome you to our city of Wilmington and to the ideal sum-
mer resort, Wrightsville Beach. Mr. Moore. (Applause.)

.Mr. P. Q. Moore: Mr. President, ladies and gentlemen:
It is a great pleasure that you have given nie today in wel-
coming you here to Wilmington and to Wrightsville Beach.
They are practically one and the same. It is a great pleas-
ure to welcome any body of men, but it is a particular
pleasure to welcome an organization of this kind, an organi-
zation of men that stands for the best things in life. No
matter where you go you will find that druggists are men of
the highest type and of the highest character.

I had the pleasure — I cannot say it was a pleasure — of
being in Baltimore under very trying circumstances a few
weeks ago, and while there I did not know where to go. I
did not know any one in Baltimore after being in the hospital
hour after hour, and there was no place for me to go. I was
homesick for some familiar face, homesick for some place to
go. It then occurred to me to go out somewhere in Baltimore
and find a Bob Bellamy or a John Hardin or a Jim Hall.
(Applause.) Down the street I walked until I reached, I
think, the corner of Franklin and Charles streets. Going
into this great place, I made a small purchase and I made
friends. I did not introduce myself, but I went back again,
and I was greeted with the same kindly smile and the same
wa l-in grasp of the hand that our friends in Wilmington
know so well how to give, and I believe that I had the pleas-
ure of meeting the head of that institution in Baltimore.
I believe the people of the whole country feel that way to-
wards die men of this and all organizations of a like kind all
over this country of ours.

Therefore, my friends, it is a great privilege that I have in
welcoming you here to Wilmington, and I feel like I know
more aboul those in the drug business than the ordinary man,
because of the fact that it has been my great privilege to
live side by side with one for a great many years, and that has



Proceedings Pharmaceutical Association 15

been a wonderful privilege. I have watched him day in and
day out, going back and forward to his work and answering
calls at all hours of the night, never too tired to lend a hand
to the sick and the suffering, and that is one of the reasons
that you are so richly blessed in your daily walk in life.
You have so much to give and you give so liberally.

Possibly it would he of interest to you to hear something
about this particular part of the country where you are, and
for a few minutes T will give you a little of our history.

The first settlement of this country was down on the banks
of the Cape Fear River in 1732, where they settled the old
town of Brunswick. They thought at that time that that
wis going to be a great city, hut never at any time were there
more than four hundred white inhabitants. But that little
town on the banks of the Cape Fear gave more men of note
and prominence to the Nation than any town of the size in
the country, in that day or in this, for among the number was
Attorney-General Archibald McLean, Cornelius Harnett, the
pride of the Cape Fear, and one of the Continental Army
generals, -Major Robert Howell. These men were the first
people to resist with arms the landing of the stamps in this
country, ten years before the Declaration of Independence.

They built there a church, the old Church of England,
whose walls are standing there today in mute testimony of
those who labored heroically for the uplift and upbuilding
of the people in that day and that time to the glory and
the honor of God, and the Cape Fear River majestically
sweeps along past the old church and the old burying -round,
and seems to sing a sweet requiem to the hallowed dead.

Later on, down here at Fort Caswell, when the war be-
tween the North and the South was raging and when the
Confederacy was tottering, the eyes of the whole people, the
followers of Stonewall Jackson and Robert E. Lee, were
upon the men wdio were defending that fort. With the
whole Union fleet— I say the whole Union fleet— shelling that



16 Carolina Jouk^al of Pharmacy

fort day after day and week after week, those men fought
only as the men who wore the gray knew how to fight, tired
and hungry, half-clothed, half-starved. They fought until
their ammunition was exhausted, and then were only over-
powered, because they never gave up.

Later on, in '98, the people of North Carolina know what
happened, when the vital question was raised from the moun-
tains of the western part of our State to the ocean, whether
the white man or the negro should rule. It was here that the
brunt of that battle was placed, but with the help of the peo-
ple of the western part of the State, with the help of the people
of the Piedmont section, with the help of every white man of
North Carolina, we saved North Carolina for the Anglo-
Saxon, and today (applause), today we can raise our voices
and our hearts when Ave sing ''Carolina, Carolina, Heaven's
blessings attend her."

Since that time, ladies and gentlemen, Wilmington has
taken on new life. They have built miles upon miles of
beautiful streets. They have built a magnificent water sys-
tem. They have built a wonderful incinerator. They have
one of the very best health departments, not only in North
( larolina, but in the while United States. (Applause.) Wil-
mington is a city of homes and of churches, and it is here
that we welcome you with open arms. I hope, gentlemen,
that your stay here will be one of pleasure and one of profit.
Tradition tolls us that when one drinks of the waters of the
Rock Spring, no matter where you wander or where you
roam, it will bring you back again, and I am going to ask
each member here to drink of that water that we may have
the pleasure of welcoming you and greeting you here again.
(Applause.)

President Takkextox : I will ask Vice-President Bird-
song to respond to this address of welcome.

Mr. E. G. Birdsoxg: Mr. President, ladies and gentle-
men, and members of the North Carolina Pharmaceutical




Mr. William Niestlie and Others on the



Proceedings Pharmaceutical Association 17

Association, and Mr. Mayor: I take great pleasure in thank-
in- von for your most cordial and courteous welcome. We
are here on this occasion representing every part of our he-
loved State — the extreme east, the farthest west, north and
south, and last but not least, the central portion.

We have come here, leaving all care behind, to enjoy the
hospitality of the good people of your city, and to consider
means and methods for the betterment and uplifting of phar-
macy in our good Old North State; to interchange the ideas
and personal experiences we have had in previous years in
the profession we have chosen for our life work, and to renew
the friendly relations existing among the pharmacists of the
State.

After the business sessions, the social features of this
Association — the mingling together and becoming hotter ac-
quainted, the hearty fellowship of the members and visitors —
is, to me, one of the most pleasing features of the meeting.

It is not possible for me to express, as I would like, the
appreciation of the druggists for your cordial greeting. We
are proud to he with yon, as Ave have been anticipating this
meeting for the past year.

For your whole-hearted welcome we say — thank yon.

President Tarkkxtox : Fellow members, ours is the
honor of having with as Mr. William Niestlie, of Wilming-
ton, who will welcome yon on behalf of the local druggists.

Mr. Xiestlie made a very entertaining address of welcome.
hi a whole-souled, hospitable sort of way he bade the drug-
gists welcome to the city of Wilmington and to Wrightsville
Beach.

During the course of his remarks about his old friend, the
Venus Fly Trap, he produced a large bottle of the seeds of the
plant, which he showed to the druggists. These capsules
containing the seeds were viewed with much interest by the
druggists. Mr. Xiestlie afterwards presented the specimens
2



18 Carolina Journal of Pharmacy

to the University of North Carolina, to be kept as a perma-
nent collection.

Mr. Xiestlie next displayed an antique mortar which had
been chipped out of solid stone. This mortar was supposed
to have been found in Italy years ago. No one knows even
its approximate age. Needless to say, it is highly prized by
the owner.

Mr. Niestlie closed his address by saying that "we have had
the extreme pleasure of meeting on different occasions and
at different places, and always we have enjoyed ourselves,
but this year it seems much more pleasant because we meet
in the old town of Wilmington."

His address was heartily applauded.

President Tarkenton : We will now have a response
