Citizens State Bank Hays, Kansas (T3 (BY R. KENNETH EVANS) Did you ever stop to consider that every physi cian depends, for his success, upon the accuracy used in filling his prescriptions and the ingredients that go into them. All drugs are not the purest of drugs and it is very easy to fill a prescription carelessly which means that the maximum of success cannot be attained. The patient equally with the physician is anxious-for the convalescence period, which cannot be obtained unless the physician's medicines are functioning properly. Hence to the general health of the United States goes a great deal of credit to the careful and competent druggist who thoroughly understands his business and takes pride in accuracy and purity. Such is the case with the Harkness drug store in Hays, with the result that a good per cent of the pre scription business of the community goes to this in stitution. People have come to know that only the purest and freshest of drugs go into every prescrip tion filled at this store and that the greatest care and accuracy is exercised to get the prescription just as it is written to an iota. In choosing drugs from the Manufacturers, the extensive experience fo - Mr. Harkness in the business enables him to demand the very best and this is all that will ever be found on the shelves in the prescription department of this store. The Harkness drug store was established in Hays in 1907 when Mr. Harkness bought the inter ests of H. B. Kohl. Since" that time he has personally taken supervision over the pharmacy department and handles every prescription personally. The Harkness is the true type of the modern drug store. While the prescription department is by far the most important and the handling of drugs the basis of this business, which also includes many reliable proprietary remedies, drug sundries and various other lines one expects to find in a modern 'drug store, are carried. - One of especial attractiveness in a school town like Hays is the Eastman line. A complete stock of Eastman kodaks and supplies are carried including a large stock of films for all sizes of machines. Mr. Harkness also maintains a kodak finishing depart ment which has come to be known as the ideal place to have kodak finishing done. A modern fountain is also maintained which is always under the supervision of an expert caterer and all the popular soft drinks are served. Chairs and tables for service are also maintained nd pop ular sundaes "and ice creams are served. Pure fruits and pure syrups are used in the mixing of all drinks and the Harkness store has come to be one of the prominent meeting places of the city. Sanitation in the operation. of the soda fountain is also an im portant feature. The line of toilet goods includes ivory and var ious other materials for the dresser or the home. A complete line of cosmetics and popular odors in per fumes and toilet waters makes up this stock. Milady is always assured of getting just what she wants in the line of cosmetics and toilet preparations. The Pandeon talking machine and a complete line of records are handled from this store. This is a machine which is recognized for the excellent ser vice it gives and one which any individual can be proud to have in their home. An extensive stock of periodicals, newspapers, current magazines and other reading is an attractive feature of the store. Parker self filling fountain pens and other sundries including rubber goods and equip ment for the hospital and sick room makes up this extensive stock. A complete line of Spaulding ath letic goods are also carried. " For the approach of spring cleaning and repair ing it might be well to state that the stock of paints and varnishes carried by the Harkness drug store is an extensive one and will meet with the demands of every home owner. Taken all in all this is the type of store which is today making such an enviable reputation for Hays as a commercial and educational center and is de serving of all the support that can be accorded it.
