Bell, John A., V. S.-This eminently successful veterinary surgeon is a native of Ontario, Can., born August 24, 1856. After attending the public schools he attended the Ontario Veterinary College and received the degree of V. S. in the class of 1880. He then located in Napanee, Ont., where he remained for a year and then removed to Watertown, where he proceeded to erect a commodious veterinary hospital. Every known appliance is at hand for the successful treatment and care of horses and cattle. Dr. Bell's success has been remarkable and he has a reputation for many miles around as a successful and accomplished veterinary surgeon. He has always taken an active interest in politics and has been government inspector since 1892. Through his advice one of the best milk and dairy regulations in the State was adopted by the City Board of Health and he made its inspector. He also is inspector for the State Board of Health. All cattle going into neighboring States from this section have to be examined by him. He is a great lover of all domestic animals and is first vice-president of the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. He was one of the charter members of the New York State Veterinarian Society and is now clerk of the Board of Censors. Dr. Bell is a representative citizen and esteemed by all with whom he has dealings.
