In keeping our drug store open is to put up
prescriptions, and that keeps us fairly busy—
with more business in sight. Our shop is ofte i
full, but we will make room for you long etiougL
to take your order and will fill it from fresh m a
terial with the utmost care.
Incidentally (and why not), we supply man-.-
people in this vicinity with toilet articles, per
fumes and stationery, and they think a lot of the
