     This interesting item, headlined “An Early Fire Fighter,” can be found on page 143 of the June 1929 (Volume 50, Number 3) issue of The Texas Druggist. (Some capitalization may be added and punctuation may be changed for clarity.)

     “Zach TOLLIVER, an early Dallas druggist and one of the charter members of the state association, was secretary of the volunteer fire department of the city of Dallas in 1879, then a town of 16,000. Press notices of those days give the information that cisterns were dug for the purpose of storing water for fire protection. This also shows that even in 1879, druggists were having (sic) their part in civic work.”
