Chemist Fined.


Charges of a serious and unusual nature were laid against a chemist, who was fined in the Summons Court yesterday for having compounded mixtures not in accordance with the purchasers' demands.

A plea of guilty was tendered by Alfred Lisle Shipton Carpenter, chemist, of Sherwood Road, Sherwood, who appeared before Mr. W. E. H. Ferguson, P.M., on two charges that, on March 22, he sold compounded mixtures, prescribed by Dr. A. E. Mason, which were not composed of ingredients in accordance with the purchasers' demands.

Mr. F. W. Murphy appeared for the defendant and Mr. J. Seymour, of the Crown Law Office, prosecuted.

Mr. Seymour said that defendant, who was a fully qualified and registered chemist, was lodge chemist for a group of friendly societies, and Dr. Mason was medical officer for the lodges. On March 14 a man named L. A. Burgess called the doctor, and was found to be suffering from influenza. He was given a prescription, which was dispensed by defendant. Two days later the doctor called, and found that the patient was not yielding to treatment. He prescribed a second bottle of the same mixture, and an analysis of a sample taken from the bottle showed that the mixture was deficient.


On March 22, said Mr. Seymour, the doctor wrote out two prescriptions in the book of Burgess. Mrs. Burgess took the book to the shop, and later an inspector procured the medicines to have them analysed. The analysis showed that there was a deficiency of 76 per cent, and 55 per cent, in the drugs. Mr. Seymour pointed out that if a patient took this diluted mixture there was a possibility of his ailment becoming chronic, or if the doctor had ordered a dangerous drug, gradually working up to tolerance point, the patient might lose his life if, when he had nearly reached tolerance point, he took the prescription to another chemist who dispensed it correctly. The doctor also stood to lose his reputation.

In imposing a fine of £17/10/ and £2/14/ costs the magistrate said he considered the charges as very serious, particularly the fact that, the doctor's prescriptions had been interfered with.


The Pharmacy Board of Queensland advises that on June 7 the name of Alfred Lisle Shipton Carpenter was removed from the Register of Pharmaceutical Chemists in the State of Queensland, in accordance with the provisions of section 20 of the Pharmacy Act of 1917.
