Dr. CHAS. JAS SAYER, Managing Secretary. EXETER DISTRICT COUNTY COURT: (J. TYRRELL, Esq., Judge.)—IMPORTANT TO CHEMISTS A’.D DRUGGISTS:Re HUG- GINS v. JONAS.-The plaintiff, a chemist and druggist of this city, claimed of defendant, a pawnbroker, £2 Ss. 9d. for medi- cine. Mr. Willesford appeared for defendant’s wife, the de- fendant being now an inmate of an asylum. Mr. Huggins stated that he had supplied, from time to time, the defendant with pills, draughts, &c. ; and it was elicited, in 4cross- examination, that the plaintiff had on one occasion re- monstrated with Mrs. Jonas for allowing her husband to take four times as much medicine as he ought to have taken in one day. When Mr. Jonas came to his shop he complained of cer- tain pains, asked for a remedy, and medicine was accordingly supplied by plaintiff. Mr. Willesford said that the defendant was insane at the time these medicines were prescribed, having been, by the kindness of his friends, allowed to be at large too long. The defendant’s wife complained that medicines had been supplied to her husband, whilst in that state, in undue quantities, and that was her reason for resisting the claim. His Honour (to plaintiff). -You have no right to prescribe without a certificate. Plaintiff.-I think we have, your Honour; but we have no right to visit patients. His Honour.-Will you show me the right ? I do not know how you can recover for anything prescribed by yourself. Plaintiff.-I have never seen anything to the contrary. Of course I give up to your Honour’s judgment, but I know of no law to prevent my prescribing. His Honour.-The first thing I a=.k, when an apothecary monies with his bill, is for his certificate as belonging to the Company, and I require this before I allow him anything. Plaintiff.-lt would be very awkward, when persons come to our shops very ill indeed, and ask us for some medicine, if we could not prescribe for them. Mr. Daw.-Such persons should send for a medical man. His Honour. -The doctrine laid down by the plaintiff is new to me. Have you any doubt as to my ruling, Mr. Daw? Mr. Daw.-None whatever, your Honour. Indeed, I go further, and say that he is liable to prosecution. If I go to a druggist’s shop, and say I am ill, and want a box of Cockle’s pills, or any other medicine, the druggist may supply it; but if I say, " I am ill, what had I better take ?" and the druggist prescribes for me, then he is acting contrary to law. His Honour.-Just so. In the present case I am not sorry you have got a pound (the amount agreed to be paid), but I think you are lucky to get it. His Honour then repeated, in substance, the law as expounded by Mr. Daw, and said it was very important in a city like this that it should be well under- stood.- Western Times. MEDICAL VACANCIES.
