“Merck's for prescriptions” MERCK


"Why is that pig always trying to get into my room?" inquired the summer boarder. "Do you think he has taken a fancy to me?"

"It's his room during the winter," whispered the hired man cautiously.Kansas City Journal.

Why, there's not a piece of chicken in it, and there never was.”

“Dat's right, boss—dey ain't no chicken in it."

"Then why do you call it chicken pie? I never heard of such a thing !"

"Dat's right, boss. Dey don't have to be no chicken in a chicken pie. Dey ain't no dog in a dog biscuit, is dey?"-Bagology.

DRUG BOXES of the kind that indicate to the customer the excellence of the merchandise contained in them—"quality" boxes, in short-constitute the line manufactured by the F. N. Burt Company, Ltd., Buffalo, N. Y.

Burt boxes are not sold direct, but may be obtained from almost any wholesaler or jobbing house in the country. To obtain them it is necessary simply to specify “Burt boxes” when placing an order.

Any druggist who is not familiar with the line may secure samples or a catalogue by writing direct to the company.

"Spurs”—members of the Society for the Prevention of Useless Giving—will appreciate having their attention called to the Whitall Tatum "Special” waterbottle as a useful article for Christmas giving.

As a sensible gift the “Special” is eminently satisfactory. It is practical, and is guaranteed to give service for a period of not less than two years.

Why not bring Whital Tatum "Special” bottles to the front during the holiday season? If your stock is low, the Whitall Tatum Company, 410-416 Race Street, Philadelphia, will fill a rush order.

A HUNGRY customer seated himself at a table in a quick-lunch restaurant and ordered a chicken pie. When it was served, he raised the cover and sat staring at the contents. Finally, he called the waiter.

“Look here, Sam,” he said, "what did I order?" “Chicken pie, sah.” "And what have you brought me?" "Chicken pie, sah.” "Chicken pie? You black rascal! Chicken pie?

“ARE ye sure ye love me?" sighed the buxom widow, as she paused in her wringing.

The man vowed he did.

For a few minutes there was silence as the widow continued her labor. Then suddenly she raised her head, and asked:

"You ain't lost yer job, ’ave yer?”Tit-Bits.

To stimulate interest, the kindergartner said, in her most enthusiastic manner: "Children, as I came to school to-day in the trolleycar, the door opened and something came softly in and kissed me on the cheek. What do you think it was?"

And the children joyfully answered, “The conductor!"Harper's Magazine.

INTERESTING CUSTOMERS IN SANITARY SERVICE.—TO acquaint customers with the merits of Vortex sanitary paper cups and dishes, the Owl Drug Store, of Nogales, Arizona, recently conducted a poem-writing contest. Prizes of $2.50 each were offered for the two best rhymes dealing with the advantages of Vortex service

The winning entry, submitted by a woman, was as follows:

Are you strong for sanitation ?
When you drink your mild libation,

You will relish it much more,
If it's served in “Vortex" glasses,
Made expressly for the masses.
Ice cream, too, in “Vortex" dishes,
Will come up to all your wishes,

At the famous Ow! Drug Store. The $2.50 prize for men contestants went to the author of the following:

Vere with my saritary dish I sit,
While silver "Vortex” glasses click.
What harm in sodas can there be,

Since health and service so well agree? According to the proprietors of the Owl Drug Store, the contest did much to stimulate an interest in sanitary service and to press home the fact that at the Owl fountain "every glass is a clean glass."

Vortex cups and dishes are manufactured by the Vortex Manufacturing Company, Chicago, Ill.

THE AMERICAN DRUGGIST.-With the possible exception of the grocer and the meat dealer, there is none who occupies a more prominent and important position in our community and business activity than does the American druggist. Many towns are so stunted that they have to get along without an editor and some other agencies of progress and uplift, but it is indeed a small place that does not have a druggist.

The American retail druggist is sui generis. Travel the world over and you will encounter his like nowhere. Europe and other civilized places have their chemist and apothecary shops, which are dreary places compared with the corner drug store that is an attractive center of business and social intercourse in every populous American neighborhood. The druggist in most foreign lands is looked upon as necesary but to be patronized only in an emergency. He has no soda fountain, no free telephone, none of the other allurements that draw the healthy along with the ill to his place of business.

The retail druggist in this country has made himself indispensable by his enterprise and foresight in ministering to the requirements of those in his vicinity. He has been progressive and aggressive. He has sugarcoated the pill, has put our castor oil in capsules, given us plasters that will come off-maybe—and done a thousand and one other little services for ailing humanity. He has earned the prosperity and approval that are his. Indianapolis is pleased to be his host and voices the sentiment of appreciative patrons in all parts of the country when it wishes him continued and increased success.- Indianapolis Star.
