Soap Caution.
It is needless, perhaps, to caution people
against using impure Toilet and Bath Soaps.
No one uses harmful soaps willingly, but
many use them unwittingly. You are most
apt to get right soaps at a, reliable drug store
---for instance, you never in you?* life saw ay
bit of genuine Castile soap sold an y where but
at drag stores.
I am something of a, crank in this mat
ter of purity, and guarantee the quality of
every soap I sell. The price you will find
right, too.
