THE OHIO STATE PHARMACEUTICAL ASSOCIATION. The thirty-sixth annual convention of the Ohio State Pharmaceutical Association will be held at Cedar Point, on Lake Erie, Ohio, on the 7th, 8th, 9th and 10th of July, 1914. The Breakers Hotel will be headquarters.

Buy your railroad tickets to Sandusky. The Cedar Point boats leave Sandusky dock for Cedar Point every twenty minutes. The round trip fare on these boats is 25 cents.

The Cedar Point Resort Company announces the following special rates at the Hotel Breakers: $1.00 per day per person, two in a room and $1.50 per day, single. For the best rooms $1.50 per day per person, two in a room, and $2.00 per day, single. Rooms with bath, $3.00 per day, single, and $2.00 per day, per person, two in room. Write for your rooms now. The Company also announces that it has finished the roadway from the mainland to the Point at a considerable cost, so that any one who is contemplating making the trip by motor can go direct to Cedar Point. The toll on this road will be 50 cents for each automobile, regardless of the number of passengers carried. The garage charge will be $1.00 per day.

Judging from the interest shown by members, this coming convention will even be better attended than the one held last year at Columbus. We will expect you there and we want you to bring all your friends.

The entertainment will be in charge of the Traveling Men's Auxiliary, and this promises to be unusually good this year.

An attractive, instructive and interesting exhibit of drugs, toilet preparations and drug appliances will be shown by the manufacturers. These exhibits are in charge of the traveling men and as these men are our members you will please them and our committee by holding orders for them until the annual meeting.

The business sessions will be short and to the point. All the dull spots will be taken out by the Council and only the bright, interesting parts will be allowed to come before you. We want your prompt and continued attendance.

Our fiscal year begins with the first day of July. Send your annual dues to Mr. E. W. Harrington, 6th and Forsythe Ave., Columbus, Ohio. For further particulars write to

The program, as now arranged by the officers and members of the executive committee, provides for an interesting list of subjects to come up for consideration and discussion during the four days' session. It is the intention of the gentlemen at the head of the Ohio State Pharmaceutical Association to see to it that everyone in attendance at this summer convention will go home well pleased, and that they will remember the many things which are brought up at the meetings arranged to take place at the commodious and airy convention hall of this

and safest bathing beach in the world, as all druggists know.

This is one of the greatest opportunities that druggists have ever had to enjoy a recreation and business session such as this. Bear in mind it makes no difference whether you are a member of the association or not, you are invited to attend. Perhaps some day, in the near future, you will find it to your advantage to become a member of the association. Remember the place is Cedar Point on Lake Erie and the dates are July 7, 8, 9 and 10. Make the entire week an outing for yourself and members of your family.
