An Ounce of Prevention...a long time ago was said to be worth a pound of cure. Nearly everyone has had one or more serious illnesses that never would have occurred if they had received a little attention at the start. It is safer when you have any slight indisposition, or a cut finger, or a bruise to come in and get something that will prevent any chances of serious trouble, or better still to always have a few simple remedies on hand. We are always glad to give you any information or assistance within our power. Wm. Malone, Druggist
