a complete knowledge of drugs. It requires the
druggist to have a large variety of drugs—fresh
drugs. He must give the best possible work, and
for compensation he must be reasonable. With the

please one and all alike. Thes^ are reasons why our

The executive committee may reconsid
er some plans for the coming carnival, in
connection with business citizens, and
have concluded that a celebration of one
day, or at the longest two days, would be
far better under existing conditions, than
to attempt a three-days’ celebration.
The idea is to have a good and attractive
time at reasonable expense. The barbe
cue, for this reason, is likely to bo dis

town just as far as possible, and if two

would not be possible to crowd every

occupy one day, and the excursion and

Hon. John H. Mitchell unfortunately
