every bit of trade he gets. There is more competition and the man who disposes of the most goods is the one who shows the right things at the right prices. Mr. Mallory was formerly connected with Parkersburg pharmacies, but is meeting with unusual success on the road.

Virgil Frizzell, for the last two years prominently connected with athletics in the Charleston High School, has decided to become a pharmacist and has left school and taken a position with the Roth Drug Company, Charleston. After getting a little experience in the store, he expects to take the necessary course in the Cincinnati College of Pharmacy.


After more than two years of litigation, the Lowery Drug Company, of Baltimore, has gotten a settlement with the Board of Education at Alderson, Greenbrier county. While the amount involved was less than $50, a question was at issue, which the eastern drug concern wished settled once and for all time, so as to afford a protection to other jobbers dealing with boards of education. The company had sold to the board of education a bill of goods, including paints, to be used on school houses. The board failed to pay for the goods and suit was brought, first against the president of the board and then against the board as a whole. In a magistrate's court the company lost out, but the Circuit court reversed the decision, and another hearing was given in a magistrate's court and a judgment was rendered against the board of education. The costs in the case amounted to several hundred dollars, and much time was given to the suits, for both sides seemed to be anxious to win, not because of the amount involved, but because of the precedent. The board that contracted the debt has been out of office for years.

"Almost anybody with initiative can start something new. But it takes more than initiative to distinguish the new things which the world wants from the new thing about which the world cares not a straw."

Indiana News

About twenty-five of the wealthiest citizens of Indianapolis are organizing a parent company which in turn will attempt to organize the manufacturers of the United States into a co-operative subsidiary company the purpose of which shall be to promote the sale of United States made goods of all kinds in Central and South America. It is proposed that the subsidiary company, which probably will have a capitalization of $25,000,000 shall erect exposition buildings in the Central and South America republics for the permanent display of United States Goods. The plan has been submitted to the government authorities at Washington, D. C., and has been given their unofficial approval. Among those interested in the parent company is Thomas Taggart, president of the French Lick Hotel Company which controls Pluto.

A great deal of attention is being paid now to teaching Indiana citizens to trade at home, in view of the depressed business conditions that prevail generally. Under the auspices of the Indiana Retail Merchants Association, having 14,000 members representing every line of retail trade, a vigorous trade at home campaign is being waged. On the evening of October 29, the association planned for the merchants in more than one hundred cities and towns to meet and arrange a trade at home campaign. On the evening of November 17, it is planned that the merchants shall assemble in those same towns for a dinner at which the results of the campaign to that time will be discussed.

With an authorized capitalization of $100,000 the Central Pharmacal Company has been organized and incorporated at Seymour. Those interested in the concern include W. C. Sumner, H. A. Washburn and Samuel N. Quillen. The company has announced it will build a laboratory in Seymour, the work of construction to start as soon as plans can be completed.

The local entertainment committee for the convention of the National Wholesale Druggists Association held in Indianapolis Sept. 21 to 26, gave a dinner in honor of Henry W. Lawrence, president and general manager of the Claypool Hotel, where the gathering was held, on October 16. Mr. Lawrence was given a beautifully engraved memorial, signed by each member of the committee, expressing appreciation of the kind treatment accorded those attending the convention. George E. Wolf, assistant manager of the hotel, was given a gold watch and other employes received gifts

of minor importance. The members of the committee were Thomas A. Alford, W. A. Caperton, C. S. Dearborn, Eli Lilly, J. K. Lilly Charles J. Lynn, A. Kiefer Mayer, G. Barrett Moxley, J. George Mueller, William Scott, Marion Ward, John S. Wright and William J Mooney, the latter being chairman.

The Federal Serum and Chemical Company has begun the erection of a $100,000 plant on the National Road, twelve miles west of Indianapolis. The company has a tract of twenty acres of land it acquired recently, and here nineteen buildings are to be erected. The first building to be erected will be the laboratory and penhouse which will be 285 feet by 60 feet, of concrete and tile construction and will cost $30,000. The plant is to be completed by February 1, 1915. The company was organized and incorporated with $125,000 capital by Indianapolis business men on July 28. A specialty will be made of hog cholera serum.

At the annual meeting of the Indianapolis Association of Credit Men held during the last month, it was decided to make an aggressive campaign against dishonest merchants who make false statements as to their resources in order to obtain credit, this now being a violation of a state law, with a heavy penalty. A banquet was held in connection with the meeting and $200 was subscribed in a few minutes toward defraying the cost of prosecutions along the line mentioned. N. H. Noyes, a representative of Eli Lilly & Co., was elected vice president and J. George Mueller of the Mooney-Mueller Drug Company a director of the association.

A business meeting of the Indiana Rexall Association was held at the Claypool Hotel, Indianapolis, October 7.

Lane of the United Drug Company, Boston, Sam Hartford of Indianapolis, and the officers. W. G. Valentine of Terre Haute is president and W. P. Johnson of Greenfield, is secretary of the association.

Business of all kinds is still dull in the state, owing to banking conditions. Banks are extending very little credit. Many of the banks are hoarding their money, sometimes to the extent of three or four times the required legal reserve. Retail druggists who have depended

on some banking accommodation in buying large bills of goods, are now compelled to buy in smaller quantities, according to their ability to raise the cash when the bills become due. The wholesale drug houses report a fairly good business, although it is probably still a trifle below normal.

The Indiana State Board of Pharmacy has begun an investigation of certain retail drug stores at Muncie where the board has a suspicion that illegal sales of liquor, cocaine and other narcotics are being made.

Hildebrand and Jonathan Kennedy, registered pharmacists, employed in Muncie drug stores not owned by registered pharmacists, were called before the board and questioned. Burton H. Cassady of Terre Haute and Jerome J. Keene of Indianapolis, members of the state board, paid a visit to Muncie recently in connection with the investigation.

War Has No Effect on These.

With characteristic business acumen, Parke, Davis & Co., are concentrating their promotion activities upon a line of products that are not only applicable to the season, but are unaffected by the European war. Prominent among them are Antidiphtheric Serum and the new Typhoid Phylacogen. These agents are being extensively advertised and detailed to physicians, and druggists will do well to prepare for the demand which will follow as a logical sequence.

Concentrated Antidiphtheric Serum (Globulin), P. D. & Co., is undoubtedly the most widely used of all antitoxins. The manufacturers' admirable equipment for the production of biological products, their trained and talented staff of scientists and veterinarians, the painstaking care with which their antitoxins are evolved, tested and standardized-these are patent to the medical profession and are a sufficient explanation of the remarkable favor in which the Parke, Davis & Co. brand of diphtheria antitoxin is held by physicians.

Typhoid Phylacogen makes its advent at a time when a reliable agent for the treatment of typhoid fever is needed, the disease being much in evidence at this season of the year. The product was tested clinically for two years before being formally offered to the medical profession, and its therapeutic efficacy is firmly established. Druggists are advised to order at least a few bulbs of this Phylacogen in anticipation of the probable demand.

Both Antidiphtheric Serum and Typhoid Phylacogen may be ordered with assurance that their prices are not likely to be disturbed in consequence of the unsettled conditions in Europe.
