And no doubt but that the large cotton merchant and certain spinners who were short of cotton lent their support to.the decline. But the situation as a, whole favored a great opportuni. ty to the bears, to-wit: The price of 21o for futures, a large and scattered long interest in the f a. ture market without organization, no combined understanding as to each other's financial strength or weakness and with a few unfavor. able war incidents coming along at opportune times make it easier to upset and unnerve the would be friends to the market.

THE DRUG STORE WITH A PURPOSE The druggist-more tharl any other class of business men-is the conservator of the life and health of his com munity. The difference between pure and stale drugs-the care less compounding of a prescription-the substitution of an imitation of whait is wanted-may cost a human life. Modern business methods prevail in the management of this store, but we never forget that we are dealing with the ills of mankind. It is a tender, humane-almost sacred bus iness. When yon bring your prescriptions to us, you will have the satisfaction of knowing that they will be filled by a graduate, registered and experienced pharmacist with fresh, pure drugs-just what the doctor ordered-and at the very least prices, as we allow no commissions, but maw'e all price concessions direct to the customer. We can fill any prescription that you may have. When you ask for druggists' sundries, toilet articles or the well known patent medicines, we give you what you de mand. We don't wast...
