THE BEST PtfltE
Without a doubt the best place to
get all kinds of vegetables, straw
berries, cherries, organges, bannanas
and lemons, is at the Geddes Grocery,
they have the best and the freshest;
and should you want nice crisp sweet
or sour pickles, Just call them op;
and don't forget that 25e coffee, It
takes the place of your 40c coffee.
