it is a matter thatuhould receive

YOUR MONEY'S WORHT.
When you buy groceries you want g roceries that
are clean and wholesome and not filled with artifi-
cial preservation to cover up unfit material and poor
packing. We Bell only such goods as we can recom-
mend for their purity, cleanliness as well as food
values and taste. Its cheaper and more pleasant to
spend money for good groceries than for poor gro-
eries and medicine.
