SALE OF DRUGS. Move by Chemists. A BILL PREPARED. Dissatisfaction on tile part of Bris- bane chemists at the growing practice of the sale of drugs by department stores and shopkeepers other than chemists has culminated in a draft Bill being prepared by the Pharmacy Board of Queensland. This proposed Bill will be considered by members of the board, and, if approved, or amended, will then be submitted to the Home Secretary, who will be urged to Introduce legis- lation on those lines. Another subject which the Home Secretary will be asked to consider, and doubtless will be introduced in the same Bill, will be that of monopolies or chain stores. It will be contended that chemists are essential to the public, and that for this reason the in- dividual chemist should not be squeezed out.

They belonged to the bucko mate of an American schooner, a man who had a shocking bad reputation with his crew. Faul pulled up opposite the front door, and he and his companion got out "Say, it's a right nice place," Jerry heard the second man remark 'in a regular "Down East" drawl. "The dame who owns this is sure lucky." Jerry's lip curled in disgust. "Why, he's simply a New York tough," he remarked to himself. "The idea of springing a fellow like that on Jill and Fay!" His fists clenched as he watched Faul, and his lips tight- ened. He would cheerfully have given five years of his life to be able to walk across and tell F...
