REDUCING chaos to order is the purpose of McCourt label cabinets.

McCourt roll label cabinets are made in all sizesfor a few stock labels—or the very largest assortment. Each compartment holds a roll of 500 McCourt labelsalphabetically arranged. It requires only an instant to cut a desired label from the gummed roll and to stick it on a bottle or box. And the rest of the labels are kept clean-away from dirt and moisture.

To registered druggists who are not familiar with the advantages of roll labels, the manufacturers will send a roll of 500 blank shop labels with convenient cardboard cabinet for 20 cents in stamps (to cover cost of handling and mailing). The company will also send free of charge, upon request, two illustrated booklets describing McCourt cabinets and roll labels.

To take advantage of either or both of these offers address the McCourt Label Cabinet Co., 47 Bennett Street, Bradford, Pa.

The Ambrosia Chocolate Co., Milwaukee, was the lowest bidder for supplying 40,000 pounds of cocoa for use in the United States navy and it is probable that the Milwaukee concern will be awarded the contract. The Ambrosia Company has been successful for a number of years in obtaining these contracts from the navy, due to the excellent quality of its products and the low price of its bids.

“Men certainly do hang together," said Brown. "For instance, I have a friend who lives in a suburb where many wealthy folks live. Recently he had an automobile accident at a lonely spot on the road, where he found it impossible to reach a telephone to notify his wife.

"I'll be durned,” drawled his constituent, "ef I don't think it would be cheaper fer you to board at a livery stable."-Bagology.

“A naval officer, to succeed, must be very quickwitted and resourceful. In fact, he must be like Hamilton Footlites.

"Ham Footlites leaned on the rail of his sea-going yacht soliloquizing about love while the blue waves rolled and heaved splendidly, each blue wave being a super under a roll of canvas.

"But the waves were here and there threadbare, and suddenly a wave ripped, and a head bobbed up in the midst of the heaving sea, and stared around in bewildered fashion.

"Ham Footlites silenced the audience's titters with one stern glance.

Dentists, too, are using nitrous-oxid-oxygen analgesia for the painless extraction and filling of teeth. There is a wide field of usefulness for the combination and many practitioners are adopting its administration as a routine procedure.

The increasing demand for nitrous oxid and oxygen gases offers the druggist an excellent opportunity to add a profitable and ethical side-line; and all who are interested should write to the Oxygen Gas Company, Traders Building, Kansas City, Mo., for information concerning the possibilities held out by the line.

The Oxygen Gas Company furnishes oxygen and nitrous oxid in containers of various sizes and also supplies all equipment needed for the handling and administration of the gases.
