Never thought of such a
sign for a medicine did you ?
Well, it's a good sign for
Scott's Emulsion. The body
has to be repaired like other
tilings and Scott's Emulsion is
the medicine that does it.
These poor bodies wear out
from worry, from over-work,
from disease. They get thin
and weak. Some of the new
ones are not well made and
all of the old ones are racked
from long usage.
Scott's Emulsion fixes all
kinds. It does the work both
inside and out. It makes soft
bones hard, thin blood red,
weak lungs strong, hollow
places full. Only the best ma
terials are used in the patching
and the patches don't show
through the new glow of health..
No one has to wait his turn.

Long ago we began thinking about Christmas. Now we are ready to have you come
and see what our thinking has amounted to. We began early to select holiday goods, we took
plenty of time, we bought carefully, bought direct from manufacturer of publisher in order to get
the prices down to the lowest possible point and to get fresh, stylish guaranteed goods. Have
not only a larger but a better stock than ever before, and at prices that few stores on this Coast
COME EARLY AND OFTEN 3
- All these goods are being placed on exhibition as fast as possible. Come and see them
as early as you can and as often as you like. It is needless to urge the advantage of early selec
tion, you realize this always pays. You are certain to gain by picking gifts while stocks are full,
and before the rush begins. It is not always possible to do this, but you can at least look at the
goods now and save time and worry when you are ready to buy. You know our honest plan of
marking everything in plain figures; you can examine and price goods without question if you
chose. We will pack and ship any goods you may wish to send to distant friends. We will lay
aside any goods on wliich a small payment is made. Will deliver goods in town on Christma3
morning if desired. We wish to make this an easy, satisfactory and economical Christmas for
you and shall have some further information to present.
