Notes:
Julius N. Dews passed his exam and became a regular druggist in 18921.
An article in the 1902 issue of Scientific American magazine said that J.N. Dews had invented a pill-making machine designed to cut a roll of material into the desired number of sections to provide the desired number of pills.
(more information will be added when I get around to researching these druggists)
