Good Talcums Are Always Necessary.
HE poorest of all toilet helps is a poor talcum. We believe this to be true although we don't sell ?.ny inferior talcum. Our line of talcum comprises all the favorite and popular brands?some we can particularly recommend. Some are plain, some medicated, some deliciously perfumed. All very particularly desired for spring and summer toilets because they protect the skin, give it a beauti? ful appearance, and allay all skin troubles. For lady, for baby or for gentleman, talcum is really a toilet necessity and a luxury at the same time. Our Reputation for Prescriptions is Good, We desire our reputation to rest on the quality of our prescription work. A druggist can have no higher aim than that. When you see our label on a bottle of medicine, you can be^sure of two things ?it contains just what the doctor ordered and is prepared from the very best drugs. That means our label is a guarantee of purity. Kelly X>ku& Coivip'aivy, The Rexall Store J a. GlLMSM, M, 1>. W. A. KAKIS, M. Gilmer & Baker, Physicians and Surgoons.
