     Appearing under the heading, “Druggist’s Mutual Fire Insurance Company,” these selected items can be found on page 194 of the June 1927 issue of The Texas Druggist. (Punctuation may be changed or added for clarity. Surnames are capitalized for emphasis.)

     “The Druggist’s Mutual Fire Insurance Company of Algona, Iowa, was organized in 1909 through the efforts of the Druggist’s Association of Iowa. Mr. Al FAULKENHAINER was secretary of the Association for 14 years and is now secretary of the Insurance Company. This has been a very successful organization and they are now coming into the Texas territory with George W. NELSON as their representative. The Druggist’s Mutual Fire Insurance Company has a half page ad in this issue and deserves your consideration.

     J. W. ALLEN of the Crowder Drug Co., Dallas, has been confined to his room and bed with a severe spell of rheumatism for several weeks. Part of the time has been spent at Marlin, where he was benefitted by the mineral baths.

     R. S. CARTER, formerly of Clarendon...and formerly from Terrell before going to Clarendon, came to the Palace Drug Store this week to be the new druggist. Mr. BRYANT, who has held this position for the past two years, will go to Quanah to take over a drug store there.

     The Harry CLANCY Sales Organization began their work, March 8, enlarging their offices and warehouse, 417-419 South St. Paul Street, to care for the increasing number of nationally-advertised products which are being warehoused in Dallas.

     Miss Marian HENRY, daughter of Mr. H. E. HENRY of the Crowder Drug Company, was crowned Queen at the May Day Pageant, St. Mary College, Dallas, on May 6th. She will graduate in June.

     C. Dewey TRENT, newly appointed manager of Renfro Drug Store No. 5, Seventh and Houston Streets, Fort Worth, succeeding E. E. WEAVER, resigned. For the past 12 years, Trent has been salesman and pharmacist at Renfro Drug Store No. 8, Tenth and Main Streets.”

     An inspiring item appearing under the title, “This Firm Has a Real Heart,” is found on page 195 of the same issue of The Texas Druggist.

     “The cyclone that swept the business section of Nevada destroyed the drug store of J. A. TAYLOR, caving the building walls and smashing fixtures and stock; the heavy rains, which accompanied the storm, completed the havoc, making the loss complete. Jim KEENE, president of the First Texas Chemical Company, Dallas, immediately went to Nevada and told Mr. Taylor to make up a list of all chemicals, specialties, and package goods manufactured by his firm that he would need to re-open his store, and this would be shipped him without cost. Mr. Keene did not say he would supply ‘only an equal amount as Taylor had in stock,’ but would place his prescription case where it was needed to be insofar as his company manufactured these items.

     The Texas Druggist is proud to chronicle such actions of one of our friends and home manufacturers.”

     Also on the same page is an ad for the BEHRENS Drug Co., Wholesale Druggists, in Waco.
