WE DON'T CUT THE PRICEI
0 The extra care and attention we put into the manu
fscture of our products-such as buying purest and
best flavors and mixing the extracts, the buying of
good bottles and the seeing to their being clean (each
and every oue of our bottles is washed, rinsed and
Ssterilized by hand,) the extra, but necessary time and
4 trouble to keep a clean place and furnish a pure drink,
*is why we maintain the price on our drinks that we do$
