discount is allowed which brings the cost
down in gross lots to $6.41 per dozen.
Small stores which buy in one-fourth
and one-half dozen lots pay at wholesale
$8.75. We pay in gross lots $6.41.
Hence you see that we can sell at a pro
fit for the price that the ordinary druggist

However, I promise you if you come to
me for all you drug store goods that at
the end of the year you will find you have
saved many dollars by trading at the
store- where things are bought by the
gross instead of by the dozen.

Reliable Druggists New Drug More
We beg to announce to the people of Oregon City and
Clackamas County that we have opened a first-class Drug
Store in this city, opposite I. Selling's, where we are mak:ng a
specialty of preparing Physicians Prescript ;ons.
"Necessity is the mother of invention" "Dissatisfac
tion the father ci progress" the enormous prices which the
people of this vicinity have had to pay for Drugs, especially
for filling prescriptions, has ne;essitated the opening of a New
Drug Store where this work can be promptly and accurately
prepared at a reasonable price.
It is a well know fact that we have always advocated
a lower scale of prices for all Drugs and Medicines than has
existed between the druggists ot this town, consequently our
advent into the Drug business has caused a great shaking and
tumbling of high prices in patent medicines although there
has been a reduction of io to 50 per cent in some cases they
are. not yet low enough to meet our idea of modern Drug prices
and down they go about 10 per cent lower.
Our fresh stock of Drugs is not to be compared with
the old pioneer stock now offered in this town at clearance sale.
However we will meet any cut made in the Drug Line, and in
some cases can go a little lower than all other prices. Better
trade where you know thef stock is all fresh and pure .
Remember this is the only drug store which delivers
all goods sold to any part of the city.
