THE SALE OF POISONS. The Pharmaceutical Society on TuesdQy, in the Queen's Bench Division, appealed against a decision of the County-court Judge of Worcester, who had refused to impose on a florist named White a penalty under the Pharmacy Acts for selling poison. The respondent represented the Boundary Chemical Company, of Liverpool, and received orders for them for the sale of a weed-killer which contained arsenic. The company delivered the article, and Mr. White was given a per-centage as his profit. The Pharmaceutical Society contended that White was the seller of the weed killer, but the County-court judge took the view that he was merely the agent of the Chemical Company, and not, therefore, within the section of the Statute which provided that only chemists should sell poisons. Justice Grantham and Channell upheld the County- court Judge's decision, and dismissed the appeal, but gave leave to take the case to the Court of Appeal.
