For a good many years the Youngs have lived in Buckhannon and whatever success Mr. Young has gained, a large part of the credit is due to Mrs. Youngfor she is a wonder.

In no town in the United States the size of Buckhannon, will there be found a finer drug store than Young's-a broad statement, but
