Here Is Where We Hand
One to Ourselves
The drug firm of Osgood Brothers
has been established for more than 26
year's. The original members of the
firm are still in the active management
today. The original text of a fair
deal to every buyer has continued
as the underlying principal of the
Arm—selecting the best grades of
drugs in the market and selling them
at a profit sufficient to protect both
the buyer and seller.
This modern drug business of today
Includes in our stock everything in the
way of drugs and toilet articles, suited
to the mosx "economical os well as the
most elaborate and expensive buyer.
The most discriminating tastes can be
absolutely satisfied. We buy close, dis
count our bills and make prices to suit
ourselves. We do not care what our
competitors do or how they do it; we
do as we please and allow them the
same privilege. In other words, we
mind our own business. If we want to
sell our goods below cost it isn't cost
ing anybody a cent but ourselves. We
are not a "CUT RATE DRUG STORE."
we are "OUR OWN RATE DRUG
STORE." In short, nobody sets the
pace for us; we trot In a class strictly
by ourselves. When any one tells you
we can't sell 12% cent cigars for
10 cents you can call them that short
and ugly word, for we do—any brand
you may call for. When they say we
can't sell you any brand of five cent
cigars seven for 2? cents they're the
same thing over again. Come and see.
If you don't say the St. Elmo is the
best 121-3 cent clear Havana cigar you
ever smoked, then we are one of those
short words ourselves. Yours for

The Time to Stop
Your Ad Is the
Day Your Property
If every one who had property to sell fol
lowed the plan of advertising it continuously
and peristently until it is sold, no one would
ever feel "property poor." And, while occa
sionally an ad might have to be repeated a
score or more of rfmes, the cost of it would be
but trifling compared to the advantage of find
ing the buyer to whom that particular property
would be a bargain at the price asked.
All property in or near this city is salable.
Thus the rule of advertising your property
until it is sold is a safe and prudent one. Of
course, the best time to begin is now— and, as
suggested, the only time to stop is when your
sale is made!
