But of what service is the preventative when not applied. All know that when diflur ent objects are hidden from our view that they arc the very ' things that are neglected in every instance. The same rule applies in the soda water business. I" the old style fountain, where the tilting jars are used to hold the syrups, they are filled time after time without being washed. In our new sanitary fountain wo are simply compelled to keep everything clean, for everything is right in sight, and you know as a general rule people do things because they have to. Our eyrups are all kept in bottles, which is the re sults of later improvements. These syrup bottles have to be filled every morning and there is where the soap and good hot water gets in Its work. Our soda fountains has been kept going all through the winter and is now in fine condition to take care of the trade. . , . A number of new drinRs just received. Harry E.
