Two years ago Charles Goldstein! confided to his frieiuls that he would j construct a modern 5-story business | block in Juneau, "to encase the bis- J gest and best mercantile store in Al aska." he promised. Kven his best friends scorned the idea. "The town is too small; it's a gold mining town.' and you know sometimes they don't last." they told him. Hut Mr. Gold stein went ahead, working, planning. Then the announcement was made that the Goldstein lllock. solid rein-! forced concrete, with its five stories, basement, and mezannine Hour, -vas to be. Today Charles (loldsteln has made good. He has the largest and finest general department store in Alaska, and there are few stores anywhere that present a more attractive ap pearance than his. Mr. tloldstein looked into the future with eyes of optimism and faith. He believes that Juneau will be what Col. It. C. Jackling. \\\ K. Alexander, for CHARLES GOLDSTEIN | iner rresuient \v.

It was many years ago tliat Charles I floldstein came to Alaska, in the ear- I ly day struggle Soutlieastern Alaska I passed tlirough in its bid for recogni-jl tion of what its hills contained, the I young merchant played no small part. 11 lie was prominent in every movement II which hud for its goal the advance- I nient of Juneau in particular, and Al- I aska in general, in affairs politic or'I civic his advice was invariably sought I and today, whenever a boost to this or I that project is needed, plans would jfl be incomplete without him. Success has crowned .Mr. (loldstein's \ I work with golden wreaths, but, like 11 hundreds of pioneers of the North JI the top of the ladder was reached by I him only after years of toil. The wood- i I en store that stood where the pros-'I cut magnificent block now proudly 11 rises, developed one of the future I merchant princes of the Northland, 11 ami gave to him inspiration to keep 11 his trust with the country of his I adopt ion. Mr. floldstein has reared a family I in Juneau. He is prominent socially I and fraternally. To summarize, it was 30 years ago|l on the IStli of April Charles tloHstcinjl came to Juneau and went into btisi- II ness with his father, Itobert (lold- II stein.

To Mr. Forrest, perhaps more than any other member, i> due the lion's : | share of tin- credit for the present | nourishing condition of the Klks* lodge. When the handsome home,! with ciubrooms, lodge room, audi ' t riuni, and banquet hall, was built! several years ago, the lodge needed; a business head, one who had the | "punch." and one who could see the, building rushed to its completion witli the lea t possible expense. Mr. For-' .'est wai selected as the logical man j or the place, and the honors since 1 heaped upon him bear witness to the high esteem in which he Is held in the lodge.

Ever since I bought the Juneau Drug Co. I have had an ideal and from day to day the drug store comes nearer the realization of that goal. I try to make the store elegant and neat, to have in it the atmosphere of welcome. The stock is complete, the service of the best?and the public has a confidence in the Juneau Drug Co. that has made possible its splendid progress. But my ideal has not yet been realized. It probably never will be realized because it calls for perfection, perfection in stock, perfection in service and the good will and esteem of everyone in the community. Striving for the ideal has made the Juneau Drug Co. the finest drug store in Alaska. Striving still for the ideal is bound to make for progress in the future. As the Juneau Drug Co. forges ahead it is better able to serve you, affords you larger stock, and better service, in other words a drug store of which Juneau will be justly proud?a modern drug store run on modern principles. Have you tried our service? Have you been in our store? If not, we will be glad to add you to our list of customers and friends.
