Not to tell you about the purity -of our drugs or the
accuracy of our compounding, for every man, woman and
child knows that in this we EXCEL all others in our
line. It is to tell you of all the new goods we are receiv
ing daily and of interest to you.
Nothing is nicer and more valuab e than a fine collec
tion of "STEINS" and we have them in all sizes and
prices. It is the craze of the present age, so fall in line.
