We Haven’t Killed Hany Bears
But we have hammered away night and day for 16 consecutive years at the pre- (
scription counter with the result of having attained the largest prescription file in
the county. There’s a reason for this. Anyone can dish out patent medicines, but
when it comes to filling prescriptions you want a competent man at the tiller, so to <
speak, with a clear eye and a clear head -in fact, a man who realizes that a human
life baugs in the balance. We do this; it’s our specialty.
