than when buying Drug Store Articles. However, unlike
buying other articles, you must, when buying drug articles,
rely to a large extent on the word of the dealer. Buy your
drug store articles where you can always depend on your
druggist's goods as well as on his word. Whether it is gen
eral drug store goods or special drug store goods; -whether
