Men, as well as women, like to be well dreasid, but many ot them

QUALITY DETERMINES SUCCESS.
Quality Indicates the man; Quality makes the merchant; Quality

this store will tell you whether or not this la the right place to get
the right quality at the right prices. . '

medicines, stationery, toilet goods, books, combs, brushes, etc. BBut
what's '.he use? It Isn't just things you're after. You want quality,

This is not a little, dingy place. It's a drug store vith lots of good
