See me for prompt closing, net Commission. EDWARD CAPESIUS Heine Bldg. Algona, Iowa 1-tf Little Chats About Your Health—No. 8 It seems to be a human failing to put N .off calling the doctor until it is thought that his services are absolutely necessary. The tragic part of that truth lies in the fact that unumbered thousends of lives are lost yearly because of that utterly wrong attitude. The average person is not in a position to judge when an illness is, or is no*', dlngeroua, and if for no other reason that fact should urge that the physician's attention be secured without delay. If you 1TO8T err let it be on the side of safety. It is far better to get the doctor's advice even though the trouble proves not to be serious than to call him when his help ia too late. Let ua fill ycur prescriptions. . E. W. Lusby a*t LET THE CAR SFEAIK FOR ITSELf ! To Lumber Meeting Wm.
