quality and prices of the goods plied up and scattered around
this store will tell you whether or not this la the right place to get
the right quality at the right prices.
Yes,' It would be easy to go ahead and enumerate all kinds of drugs,
medicines, stationery, toilet goods, books, combs, brushes, etc. BBut
what's the useT It isn't Just things you're after. You want quality,
articles of merit, and things that are pure and wholesome.
This Is not a little, dingy place. It's a drug store vltb lots of good
goods for good people. It's a drug store o fquallty, and the bMt In

Business principles that are broad, honorable and fair to all,
form the keystone for a united friendship. - '
