EllaHigginsjn, who, ai Ella Rhodes,
eet type in the Enterprise o ce nearly a
quarter of a century ago, has issued an
other volume of poemF, which has come
under the judical eye oi a Boston critic.
HesayB: "We have in tnese poems a
superabundance of emotion and physi
cal intensity. Passion is a good thing
in Doetrv : but Mrs. Higgonson's paseion
is of the fevered kind, with a suggestion
of delirium here and there.. Yet unde
niably there is an eager sense of the
beauty of the natural world, and much
knowledge of the things that satisfy or
desolate the loving heart. With many
things that aie too high-strung, there
are erjrne that "sweep the zither
neither low nor high," and are more
welcome f jr their quiet tone, and make
us wish that it would oftener occur."
The Boston man evidently tries to say
that the authoress is too etrenuous.

A Drug Store
A Drug Store
There are lots of drug stores. You
may wonder whether it makes any difference
where you take your prescriptions or where
you buy your goods.
Our best promise is in our drugstore
itself. Come in and investigate it from front
door to back, from top to bottom.
Every drug and chemical used here is
actually tested, either by us or a reputable
concern. We insist on purity absolutely.
It costs us more, of course, for our material
than it does less particular druggists, but we
are compensated by the increased trade that
rewards the superior quality of our goods.
Remember that high quality costs you
not a penny more than you are required to
pay elsewhere. Isn't purityespecially pre
scription purity worth coming here to get?
