Every Man His Own Doctor.
The average man cannot afford to
employ a physician for every slight ail
ment or injury that may occur in his
familyi nor can he afford to neglect
them, as so slight an injury as the
scratch of a pin 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
ment, which can only be had when
suitable medicines are kept at hand.
