After the Doctor--
The doctor's work is only half
what has to be done for the pa
tient. And if the druggist be
lacking in ability and care the
prescription might as well have
never been written. But we
make a special study of each case
and our own medical knowledge
is thorough enough to be of great
use to us in those sometimes oc
curring cases when the doctor,
in his haste, makes a slight error.
