FORTY YEARS AGO.

Missouri and the A. Ph. A. in 1867.
BY DR. H. M. WHELPLEY, ST. LOUIS.
Although G. T. Chamberlain, of St. Louis, joined the A. Ph. A. in 1853 and Hubert Primm in 1855, with others in 1857 and 1858, the State of Missouri did not play an important part in the association affairs up to the year of 1867. At that time, Missouri furnished 2.3% of the total membership, that is, 17 of the 727 members. The list is as follows: Name.
Address. Date of joining.
1858 Kalb, Theodore,
1864 Leitch, Alexander,
1858 Leitch, Arthur,
St. Louis, 1857
1864 Meyer, C. F. G.,
1860 O'Gallagher, James O., St. Louis,
1858 Primm, Hubert,
1855 Randals, Evermont,
1865 Sander, Dr. Enno,
1858 Scheffer, Henry W.,
1563 Sennewald, Fred W.
1865 Tanton, Thomas,
1865 It is pleasing to note that up to 1867 no Missouri member had resigned or been dropped for non-payment of dues, or even died. On three occasions had Missouri been recognized in
the election of officers. James O'Gallagher was second vice-president in 1858, Eugene L. Massot held the same position in 1862 and Dr. Enno Sander was second vice-president in 1864. It seems the office of second vicepresident was considered the proper recognition for the Commonwealth of Missouri.
At the time of the meet. ing in New York City in
1867, no one responded to the roll call for Missouri nor do we find any one mentioned from Missouri in the list of delegates, nor does the list of new members contain a name from Missouri. It is not surprising that the state failed to receive recognition, either in the election of officers or the appointment of committees.
It is pleasing to note, however, that F. W. Sennewald, of St. Louis, contributed a paper to the Scientific Section. It was entitled: "Crysophanic Acid in Senna.” This seems to have been read by title, probably owing to the absence of the author.
I have entitled this note “Missouri and the A. Ph.

In my youthful recollections Is a day when I got wise With Kali Chlorate in the mortar And some sulphur in the pile. The suffering Joseph Jackson Immaculate Molly Hare A cyclone aint a patching For what happened then and there. I thought my head a bombshell That had bursted in midair And my feet were wigglipg lively Trying to climh the golden stairs. Another time comes to me That's among the days gone by When a patent selling salesman Stuffed your Uncle Si. He was a dapper youngish fellow With a gab that sounded good He talked like forked lightning And I knew he'd saw the wood. He showed to me the millions And a life of pleasant dreams If I'd drop some shining sbeckles Into life's Elixirine. The greatest preparation That the world has ever seen Look and live my suffering brother Life's Elixirine. A cure for chills and fever Lumbago, piles and cramps More marvelous in its actions Thau old Aladdins lamp. I don't know how it happened Nor can I ever tell But I signed up for a dray load Of what he had to sell. It's been ten years or more Since this awful scene But look among my patents And you find Elixirine.
