How Cona Bu.in.eaiai Growt .
If prices nro not right Yet our business has Increased In volume every year
und Is now growing faster thun ever. Wo do not try to meet tho prices of some
cutters und department stores, because when people brln prescriptions of these
concerns to us to be refilled we find that they have churned n prlco lower than tho
pure raw drugs cost; consequently thero Is only one luforence Inferior drugs.
We would rather you would trade elsewhere If we must use cheap drugs to get
your trade. There are very many people ulrcaJy who recognize the value of tho
best quality and servlca In drug store' goods who are turning to pharmacies of
recognized standing for all their medicines.

" h ' hi nival u In h cloeed the street
fair win bcuiuui) a iojiety affair though
a considerable nurabor of eoclety peo
plo participated in the fun during tho
hours from eight to olevnn when tho
streets wore given over to the masquers.
No attempt was made to create a bril
liabt drees affair. There was no masque
ball which offers unequalled opportuni
ties for gorgeous costuming and spec
tacular effects. Perhaps another year
when our auditorium is no longer a
dream, when wo are less hampered by a
consciousness of newness end inexperi
ence, and emboldened by a past brilliant
success, our street fair carnival night
may present a spectacle only surpassed
in beauty by the flower parade, and the
gracious queon herself may condescend
to grace the ball rcom.
It has been suggested that no one
cared to trail an elaborate costume
through the dusty streets, but the ne
cessity might be avoided by arranging
a mounted contingent, or we might re
'ywt to the sedan chair of our great
grandmothers. Speaking of antiquities
every one admired the immense poke
bonnet and the frilled gown worn by a
gentleman with such grace, and uncon
sciousneES that he might easily have
been taken for the pretty Dolly Varden
herself. The writer frankly admits
ignorance as to whether he intended to
be Dolly Varden tr Dolly MadUon, or
DollyJSJomebody Else. That he meant
to be' a fair charmer was not to be mis
taken upon beholding his escort.
Mophiitophe!es was as omnipresent
as our puritan forefathers devoutly bo
licwed him to bo. With my own oyes 1
saw him in hiB flame colored mantle and
wicked feather in three places at once.
Evidently he was not eatisfied with
this exhibition of bis powers, fcr be
'; bowed to me elaborately from the steps
of a receding street car and remarked
jocosely "I have to hurry," with the ap
proved sliding inflection on the hurry.
Weary Willie improved his opportuni
ty to appear upon our streets and flutter
his vagtant tatters under the noses of
our efficient police force, in such num
bers as have not been known hitherto.
If I had not been told his real name by
so many authorities I should have ven
tured to say it was legion. Really it
was embarrassing to be one of the great
unmasked and have one of the great un
washed efclut you by name. Seeing all
that stream of groteeque and queer
people pouring by and knowing that
familiar oyeb were peering out from
within those strange, outlandish faces
positively made me feel creepy.
I think I know how the men of Athena
felt when they said their prayers at tho
altar of the unknown god, feeling that
he knew them from Alpha to Omega,
while they groped in dense ignorance of
"The Spanish cavalior stood in his re
treat" and looked very well I thought,
though he preferred a rubber ball to the
historic guitar. Thero was'n Mexican
with him, with the traditional gorgeous
neBS cf costume, and jangling spurs. He
behaved himself on the whole rather
better than George Washington who
was etruggling to maintain bis dignity
under showers of confetti, when I aw
There were many other deserving of
description but when 1 had encountered
bo many gazing Eyes with no familiar
accompanying flesh, I began to appre
ciate tho feeling Alice had whoa there
was nothing of tho Cheshire cat to bo
soon except tho grin. Also 1 got now
.knowledge in the course of the evening
and could givo tho gryphon points upon
uglitication. When 1 began to Bee
snarks I went home remembering tho
warning "Beware of the day
If your snark bo a Boojum for then
You will softly and suddenly vanish
And never b3 met with again.
Speaking of weddings, one would
think that even the knife of fate would
bo dulled in an attempt to saw through
that nuptial knot that was tied in Now
port the other day. One can imagine
with what feelings of relief that much
married couple the Prince and Princess
Cantacuzene got out of All Saint?
chapel after the final blessing. To be
married for an hour straight by the
Greek church, with all kinds of bowing
and candle carrying and salaaming, not
to mention that juggling with rings,
(calculated to drive a man crazy), it
was enough one would have thought.
Going through with another long and
solemn ceremony under tbe sanction of
tho church of England, mut have
pcomed a trifle superfluous to the A
mcricans concerned at leaBt. I've always
held that nothing could take the edge
off the awful solemnity of the Episcopal
service but I'm inclined ti think the
knowledge that 1 was getting through
my second wedding before tbe first was
twonty-four hours old would do it. I'm
glad tho poor things got away from
their spectacle loving friends before
they thought of the Sioux ceremony
for they might have insisted upon a
third ceremony after, that fashion. It
is a matter of satisfaction after all to
know that the pretty granddaughter of
the great Grant is so well married and
may the sword that thrust at happiness
A reception was tendered Dr. and Mrs,
Barzilli Ling, by tbe Ladle.' Aia So

daintily dojorated for the occasion with
palms and cut flowers. Ices wero serv

room was curtained off to forve as a
refreshment room. Garnations and
nopnragua fjmB woroutod in profusion.
The arrangomoots wero duo to the direc
