Every Man His Own Doctor.
Tim nvfrrn man cannot afford to
employ a physician for every slight au

family nor can he afford to neglect
them, as so slight an injury as the
scratch of a inn has been known to
cause the loss of a limb. Hence every
man must from necessity be his own
doctor for this class of ailments. Sue
cess often depends upon prompt treat

suitable medicines are kept at hand.
