WE BELIEVE IN DOCTORS
We believe that every man when he is sick should call a doc
tor, and not try to "doctor" himself. Wc believe there would
be far less sickness far better health if everybody would do
everything possible to co operate with doctors in taking better
care of their health. We believe that the best way, always, is
to have a doctor see what the matter is, and write a prescrip
tion for it, nnd then have a reliable druggist prepare the
medicine according to the prescription. !- -.-

pass away, and retaining only
