WEN THE DOCTOR LOOKED IN
When the doctor looked in to replenish his capacious pouch he remarked in that ■half-humorous way of his: "My colleagues are always — and of course most properly—stressing the importance of pure food and pure water, but do you know, I think pure tobacco is almost as important as pure anything else." "That's right, sir," agreed the tobacconist, "but of course we can't guarantee the purity of all the brands we have to stock." "Quite so," smiled the doctor, "so let's have my usual two ounces of Riverhead Gold. 1 know that's pure; been smoking it for years, and I suppose that like all j the genuine toasted brands it's as guiltless of nicotine—therefore as harmless— as it can be. 'Toasted' certainly has a delightful bouquet." "I know," said the tobacconist, "I'm selling a lot of all six toasted blends. Cut Plug No. 10 (Bullshead), Navy Cut No. 3 (Bulldog), Cavendish, Riverhead Gold, Desert Gold and Pocket Edition." "Glad to hear it!" said the doctor. "It merits its popularity. Trust i the public to know a really good thing!"— Advt.
