THE DRUG STORE?AND THE
PUBLIC.
A drug store, though It Is run by
private capital, Is nevertheless a pub
lic utility. It is as necessary In a com
munity as a physician, a judge or a
minister. People depend upon it in
emergencies?and the druggist is look
ed upon as a friend, whose knowledge
and experience is, as it should be, at
the service of the public at all times.
Unceasing efforts to IJve up to the
highest principles of the profession
together with strict attention to the
business end of it have made the Ju
neau Drug Co. what it is today?the
best drug store in Southeastern Alas
I ka. What made It was not so much
the fact that we carry the largest
stock, but because we give THE BEST
SERVICE, and because the people
! know that they can depend upon us at
| any time to look after their Interest in
our transactions. We claim that the
j drug store Is a public servant in the
nature of Its business?and we live up
to the Idea of It.
You will find so in dealing with us.
