DR. DRUMMOND, who closed his career as a minister of the Methodist Episcopal church, practiced medicine in Wellsburg many years ago. He gave up his practice to enter the ministry, and occupied pulpits in Wheeling, St. Clairsville, Cadiz and other points. He will be much better remembered as a preacher than as a physician. The writer has frequently heard him in the pulpit, and has been entranced by his wonderful eloquence. He often made use of poetical quotations, and so eloquent and ornate was his style of oratory that it was sometimes difficult to tell where the poetical quotation ended. He died in Cadiz about 1885.
